Anyone else purging this new year? I’ve only gone through about a quarter of our clothes as a family and managed to fill four bags with stuff we need to donate. I’m not great at getting rid of things but I definitely want to get better at not hoarding things. I am going to stop holding onto clothes I want to “fit back into someday” and be happy with my body where it is right now because it has grown two babies and last year it survived through a lot of pain. It was a good feeling to see all these clothes go away.

I guess we were a lazy reading in bed bunch this weekend, cause this was the only photo from Saturday that Intook. Kaden has started reading relatively long books all on his own lately. I’m so happy to have raised a couple of kiddos who love to read. One of Kaden’s favorites is called “Buddy and Earl” and it’s about a hedgehog and a dog and their imaginary adventures. It sounds weird but it’s really cute. Also, look at that dimple, I love this kid.

Love you more little bug ❤️ It was really sweet walking into my room to see my girl chilling and reading a book (a Zelda manga comic actually) on my bed. She’s a cool kid.

They let me take a baby home from the hospital 😮
HEY YOU! Yeah I’m talk to you! Isn’t it really funny how life has a way of working out when you just let it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How much quicker would you have realized it if you just let life happen and not tried to control everything. You would have less wrinkles, less gray hair, and probably get a year back of your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So let’s make a plan to stress less, let go of trying to control everything, get supports systems, and let life happen. Because I’m trying to stay forever young here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #motivation #happylife #happymom #faithhopelove #lovewithallyourheart #lovebeyondlimits #pourfromafullcup #faith #spirituality #whenlifehappens #sandiegobloggers  #bloggermoms  #chulavistamom #chulavistablogger #chulavista #lifestyleblogger #thehonestmom #honestmoms
Sledding is a good metaphor for life...You're finally on the downhill, where you can take a rest from all that uphill climbing. You sit down, ready to fly, thinking you've got control because you can steer. You start descending, wind in your face, feeling like you've got the world by the balls. You may even invite someone along to ride with you so you can brag about how fast you can go... Well, you're cruising along, having fun...Then BAM! God throws some ice cold snow in your face to wake you up and remind you who's really boss. But the good news is He's quick to melt it off if you let Him.  Oh and there's always that one person who starts out next to you, but just HAS to go his own way. 🤣  Have a blessed Sunday everyone! 😉❄💞 . . . #wheeeeeee #bam #godisincontrol #dontmakehimremindyou  #wolfesinthesnow #sledding #sleddingfun #sleddingfail #facefullofsnow #snow #snowfun #playinginthesnow #nevergrowup #bellybuttonhill #chicagowinters #chicagobears #chicagobearsfans #momlife #dadlife #parentlife #parenthood #motherhood #lifewithkids #kidlife #boymom #momofboys #funnymoms #honestmoms #ilovejesusbuticussalittle #writersofinstagram
I don’t usually post my outfits and I’m not great at mirror selfies (it’s not a skill I try to hone), but I’m usually pretty proud of what I’m wearing when I’m headed to a meeting. Fashion has always been a passion of mine and expressing myself through what i wear is. Key part of my personality. As a Creative Professional, I have the freedom to mix and match and be a little funky and still show up at meetings looking like I know what I’m talking about; because I do. There’s a joy in walking into a room feeling 100% like yourself. This outfit (paired with black jeans and light blue booties) was one of those times. Some of my “me” items are lettered/graphic tees, high rise jeans (preferably distressed), anything with polka dots, black and white stripes, @converse , a cardigan for normal days and a cool blazer like this one for more professional days. I’ve learned on @msrachelhollis Podcast that people get an impression about you based on what you wear in the first 9 seconds they meet you. I want to make sure I’m communicating who I am in that time. 🥿  What do you wear to feel the most like you?

I’m a city girl at heart. You must know this by now?  The thought of walking down a noisy street in the cool of the morning and getting coffee before a meeting... gives me all the feels. I always feel like there’s some celebratory anthem that should be playing while I walk. Weird, I know. But it’s really how my brain works.  I had the opportunity to meet with some folks down at City Hall to talk design and creativity with someone from the Mayor’s team on Wednesday and stopped for coffee on the way downtown. I felt exhilarated and so motivated to be able to be given such cool opportunities. And although Albuquerque is no New York or San Francisco, it has a city charm all its own and for me, this photo captures that vibe.

#twinning • • And I didn’t even plan it! I got dressed and left for work before hubs was up today, so he didn’t even know what I was wearing! Then I go to pick up #coltenwolf and see that he’s matching me! • • I didn’t think when I had a boy that I’d be able to find mommy and son outfits, but we have matched a lot and it’s my favorite! Also it’s not raining today so we will be going outside ALOT!

There are two things I can’t leave the house without .... snacks and superhero’s. . . Today Stefano had his 9 month check up and Steven joined us because though he is much better, I worried if I sent him to school I’ll get a phone call to come pick him up.. so this mama played it safe and kept him home - why not? 💙 Today’s appointment took a bit longer then we’d hope — but there’s nothing Superman and Batman can’t fix right? Because when in doubt, bring out the superhero’s.
Tuesday @explora_nm and @sandialabs hosted a Science Night at the kiddos school. We had a blast making gas, poking sticks through balloons and experimenting with chemical reactions.

Monday Jasmine participated in the county spelling bee. She was super nervous and missed her word in round one. I took this photo before the spelling bee and she was in goofy mode and was hiding from the flash 🙃 After she was eliminated, she was really upset. With some intense reassurance and encouragement from us and her schoolmates, she eventually realized that it was awesome that she made it as far as she did and she’s excited to compete again next year.

The rain let up a little bit before nap time, so we put on our rain gear and went puddle splashing! • • It’s been raining for a few days here and we both are getting a little stir crazy! What do you do when you are stuck inside all day with a toddler?
Sometimes you make something so beautiful you have to share it with your friends! 😍🤤😍🤤
Let’s get real, it’s all caffeine.  #momtruth . . Photo by @milknhoneynutrition
Jasmine is a little entrepreneur. She is always looking for some new venture to start. From the fashion line we are going to help her launch through Kickstarter to a lemonade stand, she is already very business-minded. After doing a science experiment with Kenny a couple weeks ago that involved chemicals and a penny, I told her she should put her oxidized penny on a necklace. And that sparked in her an idea for making “penny necklaces” to sell at school. This however requires drilling holes in the pennies. Thankfully she has an awesome daddy who wanted to make her process a bit more efficient and created a custom jig for drilling the holes kind of on her own (supervised of course). She has already sold over $10 in necklaces to kids at school and I’m in awe of her drive to create and to be a responsible businesswoman.

I love watching my husband do physical activities he enjoys. This past weekend he finally got the chance to check out the @ninja_park and he was, of course, a natural.

I mean... everyone else is doing it..#tenyearchallenge • • So, 1. camera phones are waaaay better now. 2. I am way more confident in who I am now, I mean I can look straight at the camera.. 3. Why did I ever wear all that eyeliner? 4. I can no longer eat hot Cheetos and cup o noodles for lunch with out feeling like death 🤷🏼‍♀️
Wednesday I had to take this sad-looking pup to the vet. He was lethargic and whimpered when we picked him up. First they said it was likely a pulled muscle but when we took him back for x-rays it showed something was hurt along his spine. The vet said it wasn’t serious and gave him some pain meds so he’s doing better.

It’s so important to me to have little spots here and there around the city that promote focus and creativity. Tuesday’s Together often meets at @greenjeansfarmery for our @risingtidesociety get togethers.

How often do you end the day thinking of all the things you did wrong? . . 🙋‍♀️When my daughters were little I would lay awake in bed at night counting the "mistakes" I had made that day as a mother. . . Being a teacher in a trauma informed setting I took these mistakes to the next level wondering, "how many ways did I mess my kids up today?" . . In hindsight I was probably living with some form of postpartum. I had no idea. . . One of the exercises I now do is to write 3 things I did well as a mother daily. . . This small addition has made a huge impact in my self esteem as a mother. . . I still may lose my temper on occasion or let the laundry pile up, but I now end each day thinking of the ways I empowered and inspired my children.

Baby girl’s first snow day! She studied it all and cracked a smile here and there. Which side of snow days are you on? Love the excitement? Or dread the bundling? I personally love it!

White sands was closed thanks to the government shutdown so.... we went to the Space Museum instead. It was pretty awesome. But it started with my amazing husband making us some breakfast. He takes such great care of us.

Strolling through Costco...😜 with berry stained faces & samples in our tummies on a crazy busy Saturday, secretly trying not to lose my Mama mind!! : : I thought life might slow down but it's only gotten busier! Hubby is working every minute between work & the bathroom remodel & it's leaving me a solo Mama that's trying her best to keep it all together!! : : Life is so busy that it takes us to the point we think we might crack! The hard days are when I used to throw what little care I had out the window & it'd leave me feeling even worse! It's times like this I'm most thankful for a supportive crew & my self-care habits the most! It helps us to FIGHT when times get tough, instead of crumble! : : Self-care & support has completely changed my life & if you need, we've got room for you too!❤️We rolled out of Costco with hot dogs in our hands, & a rotisserie chicken Mama doesn't have to cook tonight!!😉 Happy Saturday friends!! : :
Not the prettiest picture, or the prettiest moment. My eczema persists, but today I realized it tells me a story. New post up today with my thoughts, some realizations, and some raw truth about what the carousel of my mind can be like. Link in bio. #ictfd #ctfd #motherhood
‘Gappy’ ‘Gappy Anya’ ‘GapAnya’ are just a few of the names her brother is teasing her with 😩😂⁣ ⁣ Yesterday we almost failed at being the tooth fairy but that’s because Anya didn’t want to sleep and wanted to see the tooth fairy! I fell asleep leaving the job to Marlon who also fell asleep, he said the last time he check on her was 1.30am and she was still awake 😂😱 luckily I woke up at 3.30 and realised the job wasn’t complete and did it! It was worth it to see her happy little face this morning but after our first times as the tooth fairy I’m not keen on doing it again! I prefer being Santa!!!! ⁣ ⁣ Oh and tooth number two is now wobbling so I guess there⁣ will be no break 😖 . ⁣ #toothfairy #badparents #toothfairyfail #itsherfaultalittlebit #shewouldntgotosleep #idontlikethisjob #iprefersanta #anothertoothiswobbly #parenthood #honestparenting #reallife #letthembelittle #daughter #beautifullyblended #mixedkids #jamaicanandmauritian #mauritian #jamaican #honestmotherhood #mumlife #honestmoms ⁣ ⁣
Who's with me?!✋ : : : : : #momlifeisreal #bedtimestruggles : : :
His side eye is perfect, and a little frightening that at 16 months he’s already got my sass...but someone needs to tell him I’m going to cuddle him and take photos with him for the rest of his life so he should just get use to it!
He thinks he needs a snowboard too😉
I love baby feet. I do what I do because baby feet bring me sheer joy. It could be that they are attached to pure, sweet innocence but it’s #momtruth Thursday so let’s get real. . . Mommy-ing is hard. There are some days where you are ready to lose your mind, and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t sent my husband a few expletive texts during the day. . . This adorable foot here is attached to a non-sleeper. He’s young, and we are still battling the gas pains that come with being “new”. But Mama needs her sleep and this guy likes to take cat naps, and on top of that, there are no long feeds but snacking for what feels like a million times a day.  He’s the only male on the planet that wants to see my boobs quite that often. .😜 . Yesterday was a hard one. I was tired, he was as tired, and we were both miserable.  Keeping my patience becomes tremendously hard on days like this.  But these are the beginnings of mothering a new child. You dig deep and find the strength to not lose your shit, to smack on that smile for the older child(ren), and have dinner on the table for when hubby gets home. . . Some may consider the first few months the most magical, but in my opinion these are the hardest days. . . For others who feel the same, know you are not alone. 😘 . Last night little small foot slept for two 6 hour stretches and here I am this morning feeling like freak’n Mary Poppins.  Bring on the chorus line!! Today will be a good one.
This is honestly my favorite snack! A glass of @gnarlyheadwines Old Vine Zin and some lime zested stove popped popcorn! • • My mom made us popcorn practically every night! Sometimes we had it for dinner! It brings back such great memories for me and it’s a comfort food for me! ( thankfully it’s a healthy guilty pleasure!) • • What’s your go to snack?
Lookin for friday like .... 👀👀
Am I missing something? Is today national don’t let go of mommy day? Because Stefano did NOT let me go all day. Seriously,  he held onto me and my shirt so tight, all day long! He would play around me; one hand on his toys and the other holding onto my shirt. I know, cute right? Try peeing with a baby holding onto you... lol  #truestory . . . And yes that is my sexy nursing bra - in case you were wondering. 🤦🏽‍♀️
I’ve gone back and forth on if I should post this or not.. but I’ve always told myself that I will always be honest and true to myself and to everyone else. • • I look at this photo and am just so proud of who I am and what my body has done the last two years! It grew a human, birthed a human, and has fed a human for 16 months! I mean that makes this body incredible to me! • • But I recognize that I am not healthy. I don’t account that with my weight or how I look, but I know that from how I feel and from what I eat. I have an active 16 month old boy, and I want to be able to keep up with him! So I’ve chosen to work out, even when what I want is to nap because I recognize that fatigue is from my body not being in its best shape. • • So what am I doing to nourish this body? First I am taking care of my skin daily with my Rodan and Fields, Second I’m choosing to work out during Coltens Naps, and third I’m choosing healthier things to eat with out depriving myself of the sweet things in life. Life is all about choices, what choices are you making?
People told me that boys love their moms. A lot. I didn’t believe them, until I had him. I thought it was cute, then it drove me crazy. (mostly during all the sleepless nights) Now- I embrace it. Most of the time. • • • • #momsofinstagram #postpartumdepression #endthestigma #lovemylittles #findingmyjoy #itsoktonotbeok #myperfectlyimperfectlife #ppdmoms #mentalhealthmatters #mamasboy #honestmoms #learningtolovelifeagain #momsofboys #myppdjourney #iamamom #joyinmotherhood #joy #findingjoy #maskcarabeauty #maskcaraartist
Sweet Miss B has BIG news!! She is 21 months & just got promoted to a BIG girl bed!!!😱 : : it was a super spur-of-the-moment decision and I can't believe she's already big enough to be out of a crib!! But seriously, my heart is just so full, I never would have been able to take on a project like switching kids rooms around without my husband before this past year! : : My decision to get healthier was a big daunting, scary leap of faith and there have definitely been challenges, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! It has given me more than I ever imagined! It not only cured me of my chronic migraines I suffered with for almost 10 years, taken away my daily aches and pains, but truthfully has allowed me to live the happier/healthier lifestyle I've absolutely always wanted but could never find! : : Don't give up on finding your healthy/happy!! You just might find what you have always been searching for!! You will have hard days, but it doesn't to be perfect! You're worth it my friend!❤️😊 : : When did you littles switch into a big bed?!🤷👇 : :

You amaze me little one! Your wonder and love for outdoors, your ability to bring joy and smiles to everyone you meet. How you copy everything we say! The way you see a flock of birds and immediately smile, point, and yell “tweet tweet tweet!” I just love this stage of your life, and I want to freeze time. However I know you have to keep growing and I’m excited to see what God does with your life!
Oh yeah, I can’t. Little Miss Busy Body is home with me 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️. Find out why napping with her around is a problem.

I was up early enough this morning to watch the sun rise. Kiss your loved ones... the world as we know it may actually be coming to an end.  Actually it was absolutely magical- even if I did whine like a two year old the entire time. Mornings may never be my thing.  Also-this glowing goddess rocked the hell out of our session and it’s nothing but heart eyes over here.
She woke up early and came to my room, laid down and fell back to sleep. This almost never happens anymore the older she gets. It was a special moment and I just watched her and thought how little she still looks when she sleeps 🥰 Time literally flies, I will cherish every one of these moments.

Reading to her baby brother. . . . I’m not gonna lie - I’m gonna miss her little helping hands when she goes back to school. Hahaha #momtruth though I cant fully trust her yet with the baby because she’s a kid herself, but she can totally keep him entertained while I do dishes or run to the bathroom 🙋🏽‍♀️ . . .

As excited as I am for school and some sort of routine to start again, Im really not looking forward to going back to packing lunch boxes. •  I hate it so much 😂😩 It’s not even that my kids are picky eaters, they really aren’t so I don’t know what the hell my problem is. Maybe I’m feeling guilty from too much Pinterest-ing. You know what I’m talking about- Star shaped ham sandwiches and fruit kabob tooth pick people all over my “lunchbox inspo” board when in real life, I know they’re getting a ham sandwich with the crust still on and browning apple slices. 🤷🏻‍♀️I mean, could be worse I guess 😂 •  Happy back to school! 🎉
My 3 rays of sunshine . . . Who else is ready to get back to their routine? It’s been a great 2 weeks with everyone home... but we are slowly losing it. . . . Cleaning with kids at home? Folding laundry with all 3 around? Its like trying to clean a desk with a fan running and blowing everything away. This mama is ready to get back to routine!!! But first grocery shopping... also known as a down payment to a house... am I right?!

It’s been a rough few days, this toddlers sleep has been horrendous, and he only wants mommy. So I’m getting no sleep and no breaks. But all of that seems to not matter the moment I hear this one giggle getting to be outside in the rain!! I love you so much little bug! Your joy is contagious!!
Christmas break is coming to a close. I have broken up countless fights, said things in parenting I never thought would come out of my mouth, and fell in love a little bit more with these two little humans. Motherhood brings out all these different sides of me, some I was ready for and others I wish would never have seen the light of day. Going into 2019 I am preparing myself a little more for the milestones my children will face and for the school breaks we will encounter. 5 days in to a new year and I have already broken some resolutions, learned a little bit about more about personal forgiveness and confirmed my gratefulness to be the person these two kids call mom! . . . . How are you doing so far this year? . . . #motherhood #parenthoodunplugged #honestmoms #honesty #siblings #gobacktoschoolalready #stayhomeforanotherweek #confusedmom
Parenting this go around is full of lots of joy, and also, lots and lots of struggle.  New post finally up on the blog today. First one in six months 🤦🏻‍♀️. Link in bio. #ictfd #ctfd #motherhood 📸 credit: @nicolettelovell
Welcome to the fam Lainey girl!🖤
I’m not setting any resolutions this year. It’s too much pressure. But I’ve decided that I’m going to take better care of myself. I started last year by starting Rodan and Fields and taking care of my skin, and now it’s time to take care of my body. That means eating healthier, and moving. But it also means not depriving myself. If I want to eat ice cream I will, if I want that candy bar I’ll eat it. I’m just going to stop over indulging, and start looking into what the cravings i am having actually mean. . . . Who wants to join me? (I’m not selling anything,except the best skin care 😉) just making better choices, and choosing to love my body and myself! I’d love to help you get your best skin and walk with you on this self love journey :)
Happy Friday!! The bathroom remodel is coming along, my hubby sure is spending alot of time in the bathroom!😁 You all were way too nice yesterday in my stories about the red floor!! 75% of you said it was ok, and it made me laugh! That is NOT our flooring but I just had to see what you guys would say. It's just the water-proofing for the floor! We're not THAT bold!😉 : : I'm newly determined to wake up early and do my personal uplifting reading, and movement BEFORE the kids wake up! New habits are hard but my busy ladies are working on it- so I can too!! : : If you saw my stories this morning, I am NOT a morning person but I'm a work in progress! Don't discount what Accountability & a supportive group of women can do for you!! Without them I'd be exactly where I was a year ago {unmotivated, grumpy, exhausted, & so down on myself}! : : Are you a morning person?! : :
SAID. NO. MOM. EVER. . . . Jason’s on call this weekend which means more full-time mom duty. . . . But I do intend to have a “chill” moment involving my bathtub and a bath bomb later tonight. . . . Any big weekend plans?  #chilldays #sike
She’s not a baby anymore . . . She’s a big girl - 6 years old and loves to get creative with anything and everything around her! She’s the best teacher Steven could ask for lol. She has a heart and soul of a mother ❤️ She’s an independent little girl who rarely needs or wants mamas help. When did it all happen? When did she grow up... it feels like yesterday I found out I was pregnant with her. 6 years ago ... . . . She has made these two weeks full of fun and so much laughter (she peed herself) lmao ... we had so many girl nights just me and her in her room. Will she always want girl nights with mama? Will I get replaced with someone else? Will she always come to me first with her problems? I could only hope she does. . . . . Raising strong girls. Girls who know they are good enough. Girls who know they are beautiful ... raising kick ass girl 💪🏽 . . . . Girl moms? What’s your most favourite thing to do with your daughter? . . . . #girlmom #motherhood #motherhoodsimplified #honestmoms #rawmotherhood #reallife #clickinmoms #motherhoodunplugged #momblog #momblogger #dailyparenting #dailyparenthood #dailymoms #dailymotherhood #pixel_kids #letthembelittle #raisingstronggirls
What’s this?!? Mom has a few hours to herself today. #coffeeandbooks . . . The boys are transitioning to daycare this week. Tommy is returning after being home for six months during my maternity leave and Walter’s paternity leave. Smithie is starting for the first time - 1.5 hours yesterday, 3 hours today and full day starting Monday. So I took these two days off work to focus fully on the transition. We had some tears (but also smiles!) as we adjust to our new normal routine but we will figure it out! #workingmom #honestmotherhood
Views ... from our holidays. . . . It was definitely not a beach view. Nor was it anything less ... ❤️ (but don’t get it twisted — a beach view would be just GREAT) . . . It feels like forever since we’ve been able to just lay low and chill out as a family. We’re usually always on the go ... with school, dance and soccer.. and not to mention the daily chores at home we hardly have enough time to lay low. . . . We knew this holiday was gonna be filled with some much needed quality time. Board games, cooking, baking, movies and just simply being us. . . . Sarina is always trying to do some type of move (on her head) lol, Steven always either has a car or superhero in hand and stef... well he just tries to get in the mess with them! . . . Hubby is suffering from the man cold. 😒so there he is, hugging a box of tissues haha .. checking his sports (of course) ... I’m sitting down enjoying a sip of coffee until someone needs me or gets hurt lol . . . This is us. And slightly sad it’s all coming to an end. 4 more days until the kids go back to school.. but who’s counting ? Hahah 😆 . . . . #honestparenting #honestmoms #honestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #momof3 #lifewithkids #lifewith3kids #kids #winterbreak #dailyparenting #momdaily #dailylife #momlife #momblog #momblogger
“For every minute you are upset, you loose 60 seconds of happiness 😊”. #realtalk and a little #venting - ⚠️😉. When my emotions get the best of me, I look to quotes for inspiration and laughter. We were overwhelmed with feeling sad yesterday that Kaylee’s unexplained fevers have already returned after only 2 days in the clear yet again (canceling plans is never ending for us as is with her bone condition). I know this time of year is rough on a lot of people. Kaylee’s been constantly sick back to back for months and the unknown fevers with no other symptoms have been really stressful. I don’t want to loose any more of today’s time to worry or sadness though. Right now we are solely focused on having fun. We’ve played go fish, war and uno on repeat - if anyone has any other game recommendations please please please let me know 🤦‍♀️💗 lol. #makingthebestofit, #choosingjoy, #reallife, #playingcards
It’s happening .... . . . The moment I was not in a rush for ... his first steps. Send help. Someone, send help! . . . . He can stand up on his own now and will even attempt to take a step forward but fall down. He always wants to be on his feet ... and close to mommy at all times!! . . . . Oh and... hot coffee .. and ripped leggings 😒🙋🏽‍♀️ it could be worse right? Cold coffee and ripped leggings? . . . Happy Thursday! . . . . #momlife #baby #8monthsold #thirdbaby #momof3 #momofthree #honestparenting #honestmoms #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #dailyparenting #dailymoms #momblog #momblogger #clickinmoms
How to live a meaningful life without a white kitchen. 🥴🥴🥴 This isn’t a blog post but someone should write it! . . . Seriously, Instagram is brimming with beautifully, instagrammable sparkling, white kitchens that I would die for. Unfortunately, a kitchen reno isn’t in the budget for the foreseeable future.  Our brown on brown on beige kitchen (swipe right) really drives me nuts some days. I find myself super envious of the meticulously put together homes I see. . . . What you often don’t see is the time and patience many of these bloggers/DIY/decorators put in to achieve these beautiful spaces. . . . Maybe in five years you will have the white kitchen or the new patio or the dream bathroom. . . . But, finding contentment now is my goal for this year.  Writing down a “favorite moment of the day” has been a great way to express gratitude for all of the amazing people, experiences and things in my life. . . . I still want a white kitchen, though. 🥴 . . How do you keep yourself in check if/when you spiral down the Pinterest/Instagram rabbit hole? . . . #brownkitchen #whitekitchen  #favoritemoments  #cdplayer
Played in the snow in the empty lot next door. Not a lot of snow to sled in but enough to have a little fun and build a “Grinch” snowman ⛄️ 😆 Real Life Day 695 . . . . #everydayadventures #reallife #myreallife #realmotherhood #snapshots #momlife #realmoms  #moments #everydayphoto #honestmotherhood #honestmoms #thisislife #theeverydaymom #wahm #mompreneur #motherhustle #mydays #thrivemoms  #gritandvirtue #everyday #mylifeinphotos #choosejoy #everydaymoments  #wonderinthenow #thesearethedays #theeverydaygirl #theeveryday #snowday #snowdays
Last day of Christmas Break consists of... Naps, laughs and bath bombs  #perfect #thatsmybathbomb
Building blocks or building anything with a baby on the loose is pretty difficult. . . . “Mommy can u put stef to sleep” “mommy can u put stef in the car seat” “mommy can u hold stef” “HES GONNA BREAK IT” ... poor stef he’s in that tornado stage. Anywhere he goes... he destroys everything! . . . .  And all stef wants to do is follow his siblings. . . . .  #siblings #momofboys #momofthree #girlmom #motherhood #playtime #buildingblock #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #honestmoms #dailyparenting #dailymotherhood

Describe your perfect morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is mine. Coffee with a mountain sunrise. I don’t know why but I always wake up super early in the mountains. I can’t wait to catch the first morning rays peaking through the trees, coffee in hand, breathing in the fresh mountain air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #motivation #happylife #happymom #faithhopelove #lovewithallyourheart #lovebeyondlimits #pourfromafullcup #faith #spirituality #whenlifehappens #mymotherhood #sandiegobloggers  #bloggermoms  #lifestyleblogger #honestmoms #shaverlake #themountainsarecalling
Breakfast for champs 💪🏽 . . Oatmeal 🙌🏽 I still make a batch with steel oats and freeze them. I can’t begin tell you how much time it’s saved me! . . . I rotate the fruit I add to his breakfast. Here he had banana and raspberries with sprinkle or cinnamon and chia seeds. . . . He isn’t much of a fan of the raspberries but that’s exactly why I rotate the fruits with him... so he doesn’t grow to hate them. And to give him a variety also . . . #oatmeal #breakfast morning #morningviews #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodsimplified #rawmotherhood #motherhoodrising #clickinmoms #momblog #momblogger #dailymotherhood #dailyparenting #honestmoms #honestmotherhood #honestparenting #breakfastideas #babyfood #babyfoodideas #momofboys #momof3 momofthree
Stayed overnight at the @doubletreebyhiltonalbuquerque New Years Night and woke up to some crazy snow downtown. We decided to stick around and eat some brunch with my parents and nephew at Garcia’s before we drove home. It was a good morning, quiet, white, and cold but beautiful. 2019 is going to be a good year.

The best part about co sleeping . . . Is waking up to this face everyday. . . . Anyone else co sleep? I did with all 3 🙋🏽‍♀️ . . Mind you it was the only way I ever got any sleep. Breastfeeding and co sleeping ... it’s basically like milking a cow in your sleep. . . . #cosleeping #cosleepingwithmama #mamasboy #morning #morningviews #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodsimplified #rawmotherhood #motherhoodrising #clickinmoms #momblog #momblogger #dailymotherhood #dailyparenting #honestmoms #honestmotherhood #honestparenting
Isn’t this every mom’s view from the shower? 🥴 . . While in the bathroom, Everett is only interested in two places - the toilet and the shower. . . .  I think we need a playpen.  #showerthoughts #viewoftheday
