Seeing happy customers in their Rya Bella is seriously one of my favorite things! How sweet is little Miss Nova in her #RyaBella Tenley Set?! And it's #Friyay y'all! Hope you all have a great and safe weekend!!
All of you parents of littles - know this ... they will grow up, they will eventually potty train and eat their veggies and actually want to nap and you'll get thru whatever crazy parenting season you find yourself in. And on the other side you'll find that these kids are genuinely cool people who you enjoy hanging out with. And you may even find yourself feeling the same way about their friends. #ontheblog
I don't know when was the last time I got my nails done...Now to get used to the new length. I figured I deserve to pamper myself too, even while being a mommy. It's so easy to put ourselves in the back burner being everything for everyone. A dear friend @jebspinder made a post the other day that spoke loudly to me about taking care of you always, not just for the special occasions. I'm listening... Heard it loud and clear. The toesies got the special treatment too, and now they are ready to see the world without people running away scared! 😂 To think I used to do this on a regular. #momlife#womanlife#givingtome#findingmeagain#pampering

When your 3 year old asks for a pedicure & a movie (I know, I'm in trouble 😳), you break out the good stuff! Lemongrass to remove her polish, salts with Gentle Baby for calming & skin support, Grapefruit sugar scrub (she LOVES scrubbing her feet 😂), and Animal Scents Ointment for a foot massage. Yea, it's for animals, but we use it for ourselves! When we apply a product to our skin, it takes 22 seconds to get into our bloodstream. I feel good letting her use these!
FriYay!!! 🎉 We are heading to Shay's "roundup" event at school later today and none of us have any western gear. But I found some hand me down boots in our garage from years ago. Luckily they fit Aubri and she is wearing them all around the house now! #littlecowgirl#twosteppin#boots
My son was usually in the 50th percentile for weight during his first year.
My first daughter was usually around the 10th percentile for weight in her first year.
My second daughter just had her 2nd month check up and she is in the 60th percentile for weight. .
We are ALL different when it comes to what our body looks like and how much we should weigh. God made us in His image. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are each feeding our newborns the best nutrition possible and they all weigh differently!
So next time you want to criticize yourself and compare your body to others, DON'T! As long as you are putting nutritious foods into your body and trying to work out consistently you are fine! The important thing is that we are healthy.
So, When you are done reading this post, go have some chocolate. It won't kill you. It is all about balance right? 😉
Hi 👋🏻 It's me, the girl behind the camera! My Instagram went from fitness posts to pregnancy posts to allllllll baby posts! I haven't done a postpartum update in a good while because, well, there isn't much to update! I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight and I'm eating healthy 80/20. As far as my fitness I have yet to find balance with mom life (and running on no sleep!) Some days I feel like a slacker because we are 6 months in and I still haven't gotten my booty in gear! But then I remember that this season is short and I want to soak up all the days with my best girl 💗
Her precious face, her sweet expression, her favorite toys sprawled across her bed, her room that's been hers since she was a baby....... I don't think I'll ever not feel nostalgic for this home of ours. Feeling sentimental, can ya tell? 💔💔 #mollyscarlet#jemsmovetoillinois
It doesn't take MUCH. But it does take DOING.
Today I managed to go almost an entire MINUTE doing FULL push-ups! That's HUGE for me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All you other Mommas out there: All it takes is a little bit of effort, and you CAN get that strength back! You are ALREADY strong. ➡️Like SUPER HERO strong⬅️ If you're wanting that exterior strength, and want that confidence back, it IS possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚫You DON'T have to go to a gym. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚫You DON'T have to pay tons of $ for a personal trainer. 🚫You DON'T have to workout HOURS a day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I simply turn on a 30-minute video and let my trainer work me on MY time. In MY house(or ANYWHERE). 💋Could totally be you too if you want it.
These lines perfectly sum up my MO for today. It's gray and wet outside, and I have no desire to do anything productive.
Luckily, my daughter is completely okay with that 😍 Today has been all about long naps, making messes in the playroom, and watching her favorite movie, Moana.

Take your pick! ⚠️ So the coolest thing happened 👉🏻 I won a gift certificate at a mommy expo for family photography! 😳 I NEVER win anything!! 🎉 When I entered I was thinking "this would be awesome since I never got newborn photos done and I SO regret not doing that!" 😣 But by like the next day I totally forgot about it because like I said - I never win anything 👎🏻 SO we're taking our pictures on Sunday and I have NO idea what to wear 👻 we're going to the same spot where my maternity pictures were shot (I like the coming full circle idea 🙂) and I wore dress C in those pictures too. Dress A is a navy blue it's just hard to tell in the picture 💙 The photographer said to figure out my outfit first and dress Greg and Blake around me since they're way easier so what's your pick?? 🤔 Or should I just go shop for a new dress? 😂😜
Spent the morning with a bunch of 1st graders on Kyle's field trip.
Honestly, field trips are more stressful to me than enjoyable...kids running around frantically, lots of yelling...but I am so grateful to have the opportunity to attend & spend that time with my kids.
After the field trip we went to "that place with all the stores" - the mall. That's a rare event for us country folks ;)
This little peanut turns 2 tomorrow...if I thought time flew by with my oldest, with G I've barely had time to blink. She is the sweetest thing and has brought so much joy to my life. Happy (early) Birthday, baby girl.
We are at the most beautiful beach with our incredible team just missing Sarah and jeff down here on the beach itself.
I love that we get to be out here learning more about each other's lives than we can find out just through team calls that are used for business growth. There is so much more to each of them than what shows on the outside!! I love that the in person interaction is the most important part of what we do as teammates. Build each other up. Share our lives and love on each other through everything. Being in person on this trip makes all the difference in the world
