Why am I posting this?? Because I'm real and sh*t happens..
Out running errands all morning with the kids, and as much as I can plan and prepare.. sometimes it doesn't workπŸ‘
I was HANGRYπŸ€·β€β™€οΈso I made a choice..
Yes I am a health and fitness coach and make the best choices I can, but I'm also human.

Here's to being realπŸ™

Saturdays are for fishing! Any little boy would look oh so cute in this Noppies outfit of the day! Complete the look with a trendy Minimoc and LouLou Lollipop soother clip! Buy all 3 pieces of this outfit and you'll save 45%!

Why have I never has one of these delights before? Oh, that's right. I'm a mother and this is my monthly get-out-of-the-house night. And I usually lean towards a #gimlet if we are talking cocktails or of course my go to #wine. But this #moscowmule @cirquedusoleil #Kurios was kinda awesome and might be my new go to. On those nights that I do go out. .

Being a #mom of three is pretty amazing and sometimes #crazy... Did I mention crazy 😜 but nevertheless as my Girlz πŸ™‡πŸ½β€β™€οΈ grow into their own personal and unique selves I realizes that the more I take a step back πŸ™‡πŸ½β€β™€οΈthe more it leaves room for them to flourish into confident and #secure little human beings... #yegmommyjournals #momofgirls :

If you have been watching my insta stories this week you will have seen that I have been #fermenting some carrots! I am so happy to share that they are both friggen delicious and friggen easy πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
--
Bonus...Zola (my 4 year old) LOVES THEM. I don't think the jar will last long, but thankfully I can get more carrots from the market. I used carrots from an "odds and ends" bag, so this really is a cheap way to ferment πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯• πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•
-- You may be wondering why you would want to ferment carrots. Well...the answer is two fold. First, it preserves the carrots, they will keep for a while in the fridge. And secondly, they are full of gut loving probiotics! The health of our gut is so so important to our overall health (from mental health to skin health and everything in between) ⭐️

The recipe is from the book "Home Fermentation" by Katherine Green

Happy Friday ✌🏼

Bright red lipstick today because it's Friday, and why not? In the spirit of #fridayintroductions a little #aboutme . 1. I am one of those annoyingly positive people (I know I am, ha!) 2. I am very interested in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, and have seriously considered becoming a doula. Still might. 2. I love being a SAHM, and though I know it won't last forever, I'm soaking up every second. 3. I love Coldplay, and yellow is my favourite color, so "Yellow", the song, makes me happy 4. My husband is 10 years older than I, and the age difference means nothing to us. 5. My guilty pleasure is Coca Cola πŸ™ˆ I've tried quitting so many times, so now I just limit to once or twice a week. 6. Walks with my little family are my favourite. 7. I make up lyrics to the songs I don't know, when you're belting them out, you don't stop to check πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 8. I love Sangria 🍷 9. My husband asked my parents permission to marry me, in Spanish 😍 10. I have met some awesome mamas through instagram (virtually and in person) and wishing you all a beautiful, beautiful weekend ❀️

Ever wondered how a mini latch from @babywisp works? Swipe left and you'll see!β €
β €β €
The top pic is a closed latch. Press on the outer edges of the clip, and it opens like the bottom pic. See the silicone grip? That holds baby hair and clip in place. Just press on the outer edges of the clip again to close, and the bow stays in place even on the wispiest of baby heads!β €
