Normally I take my keiks out to dinner at Tanaka of Tokyo for my birthday but who could pass up the last day of $0.50 saimin at Shiro’s?! 😜❤️🍜 . . Thank you @keanakam for the heads up about this! 😉😉 . . #HappyBirthdayToMe #ThisIs33 #CheapestDinnerEver #MomWin #SaiminLove #LoveMyBabies #MomLife ❤️
I got to take Paul and the boys to their first RSL game tonight and it was a huge success! Seeing my boys light up and really dig into the spirit of the game was everything my soccer loving heart wanted. 💕 it’s nice knowing I didn’t just force them to love the sport... they actually do! #momwin Maybe I can talk the hubs into season tickets? 😬🤞🏼
Totally tootin’ my own mom horn here - but I managed to build a pretty epic train track for the kids while the hubbs is having fun out of town (lucky ba****d 😂)! So far it’s given me 45 minutes to myself to finish my reading assignment and #crush my quiz. Their quiet play also redeemed themselves from the high pitched, high energy - one scream away from putting mom in the #loonybin - chaos of today with two cooped up kids all day because 1 is sick and the devil is still controlling the AZ weather so I couldn’t just throw them outside! 🔥on earth be gone already - the power of Christ compels you!!! #overit #readyforcoolerweather . . . But hey - how bout them apples still getting my reading in and killin’ my test on the first attempt all while womanning the house on my own this weekend. #focusonthepositive . . . #student #onlinecourses #quiz #homework #studentmom #nevertooold #timeforchange #createthelifeyouwant #socialmediamarketing #crushingit #garyvee #distractedkids #momwin #momlife #boymom #rowdyboys #lovemyboys #comehomehusband #longday #arizonasummer #sickkid #stuckinside #summerbegone #theazdanidiaries
Food is meant to nourish your body, when you eat it think to yourself how is this going to make me feel? Is it truly going to bless my body? These baked carrot cake muffins and peanut butter cupcakes were all meal plan AND taste bud approved. They satisfied my wanting something sweet and I know they aren’t going to make me feel terrible! Perfect end to a fun Saturday!!
Random #throwback from when the #rowetriplets never opened their eyes for pictures and could all fit in my lap. WHY ARE THEY SO BIG NOW😭 anywho, I got really happy news tonight that I cannot elaborate on just yet but YAYYYYY❣ #tripletmom #ilovebabies #thisisthelife #mommythings #lifeisgood #sobermom #livingmybestlife #littlegirls
Made a Possum birthday cake for my daughter, per her request. Came out amazing! I am actually quite proud. I have made all kinds of cakes over the years.

It's the best time of the year! * Football season is HERE 💗 * Love that my 12 yr old recognized this stitch is HIM & he didn't mind at all! * 💯 Mom win!!!
The girls each grabbed a bear and I grabbed my guy... to push the stroller 😚 thx babe! I see you sportin that @Arbonne hat 🥰
These are a blessing from the Lord. It's messy. It's challenging. But it's love.
Just over year enjoying my day of learning and growing in leadership through our church, having coffee with a new friend, hitting up a local place for a burrito, and getting carrot thrown in my hair. You can check out my stories if you’d like to know more 🤣 Happy Saturday friends! God is good, and so are burritos and good company 🙌
We made it to bath time! Whew! Moms, y’all feel me? Anyone have advice on bedtime...he goes down at 8, but doesn’t actually fall asleep until 9:30 or 10! Not usually upset, but playing and chatting and just NOT SLEEPING! I’m asleep before him some nights! Tips would be lovely! #madeittobathtime #momwin #bedtimestoughtthough #imasleepfirst #hecutethough
Life is a series of thousands of miracles. Notice them. ✨ Weekends are HEAVEN💕Am I right?
Moms, the snack attack is real. Don’t know about your kiddoes, but mine WILL NOT STOP asking for food. All day. I try to keep them at 3 meals 2 snacks a day, but boredom or hunger pangs take over and they DEMAND “treats.” Here’s a POSITIVE solution for the snack craze.
We were soccer game ready this morning! Everyone knows that eating your fruits + veggies makes you run faster and kick harder right? 😉 I can’t really contribute his 4 goals to the smoothie, but I can say that he was fueled and ready to play this morning!

Oh how I wish I looked this cute frolicking through the park today! (Or that I could even wear my robe to the park #girlcandream 🤷🏼♀️)💕We went to our dear friends boy’s birthday party and when you attend a party for toddlers, there is nothing pretty about it. Yet it was absolutely adorable, hilarious, and very amusing to watch. Every dirty hand and face wiped, potty break or diaper change, boo boo kissing, and the constant running after them is just great 😂. But I am so happy that all it took was a quick bath and now they are both OUT!!! #momwin #gottaloveparenting

TOY STORY 4 PARTY! My son picked the theme for his party this year and of course it was his favorite of all time, toy story. He has been obsessed with toy story since he was about 2 years old , so I had to make his 6th birthday party extra special . Each food item was created around the movie , so that was really fun! We have so much food left over tho, so I know for next time not to make soooo much. Aside from that, I enjoyed creating his own little toy story land for him , and he is so thankful. He keeps telling me how much fun he had and how awesome I am , and it makes me so happy to know he felt extra special on this day 💙 #ToyStory4 #Party #ToyStoryTheme #fun #birthdayboy #jello #pigsinablanket #salsa #arbyscurlyfries #pastasalad #creative #momwin #momlife #ididthat #bestmom #gome
Did you know, when you join my fitness and nutrition accountability group you get access to hundreds of recipes to go with the meal plans?!?!? • I was in the mood for Chicken Alfredo but really trying to keep my nutrition balanced. A treat day is coming up soon but until then I have to stay focused 😉 • I found this recipe on our cooking channel and decided to try it! Super easy and pretty good! • This surprised the heck out me, it’s pretty much all veggies 😮 But the boys couldn’t tell what veggies i used #momwin • Need help with nutrition, meal planning and prepping, and finding healthy recipes to help you stay balanced with your nutrition?? I am taking new clients and would love to help you reach your goals 💯💪🏻
I decided to do Annabelle in the closet this year for Halloween. I was getting SUPER excited about the mischief Annabelle was going to get up to. I told the kids Annabelle was moving in and showed her to them. . Apparently they didn’t like the idea of Annabelle and decided to pack their bags to be homeless. They just couldn’t be in the same house that creepy Annabelle was going to be. . In the second photo they were both sobbing their little hearts out. They took all their special belongings with them, food, water, toys and even made a sign that said “please help us”. . I’m not sure if this is a Mum win or Mum fail. My kids think it’s a fail. I’m still deciding 😂 . #kids #singlemum #singlemom #familylife #family #momfail #momwin #halloween #annabelle #creepy #scary #funformom
this little bean looooves being outside! 🌳🌱🍃 we try and go outside at least once a day, sometimes with toys and other times just to explore. She loves bear crawling through the grass and feeling the different textures of the stones in the walk way. She even learned how to climb up steps on the front porch! The rate at which she learns things these days is astonishing 😳
I love how the same oils that help me sleep better are also great for our skin! I made an owie spray for us months ago (Lavender, Frankincense, Tea tree & sweet almond oil) and have recently discovered this Lavaderm Spray works great too! Scrapes, burns, bug bites, it soothes and helps heal all of our boo boo's quicker! Certain Essential oils have healing properties, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties too! they help regenerate and heal cells, ahhfreakinmazing!! These oils moisturize the skin too, so basically, i'm using these oils on my skin even when I don't have owies!
Wrapped up some asparagus for the grill real quick for a healthy side to go with our burgers. I like salt, pepper, garlic, butter, and lemon! #lowcarb #grilling #lowcarblifestyle #lowcarbsides #keto #ketoapproved #webergrill #summertime #weekendvibes #easypeasy #momwin
When my kids try to argue about taking a bath or shower, I entice them with bath bombs! Works every time! 💙 (Don't mind the singing in the background.

Little Miss is not feeling so well 👎🏻😔 tried to give her a ice pop after her medication to make her feel better & to soothe her gums (new teeth are just the worst), ALMOST lost her to an emotional break down when her ice pop top broke off...mama’s quick thinking prevented any further fuss & BONUS it’s now like she has TWO ice pops!!! #youjustgottaknowhowtotalktothem and how to #macgyver any situation!! 🤷🏻♀️👊🏻#parentingwin #darnbugbites #momwin #charlotteharperleston #littlelestonladies #enchantedacresct #forkytotherescue #toystoryfan #live #love #icepops

"The weekend's nearly over!?" We feel a bit like that too! Gorgeous shot by @amymaree😍
I’m on parenting cruise control today. . Between me and Myles pretending we were in our 20’s and staying out all night and the kids not feeling great from their vaccinations yesterday, there’s not a lot of excess energy to do anything other than have a bed picnic and watch movies all day! . Spoiler alert: . I let my kids have screen time... 🤭 Our current movies on rotation are Hotel Transylvania 1&2, Trolls and Sing which thankfully, I actually like. When Malin was little she was into Minions and it’s the actual freaking worst. Don’t @ me, it’s horrible. . I’m a pretty laid back parent, I pick my battles. I try not to sweat the small stuff. I prob let the girls watch too much of the iPad, I’d rather talk to Malin than build a tower and I’m definitely not the kind of parent that wants to play barbies all day. I know... you’re not supposed to say that right?! . Well since we’re sharing... . I also swear like a trucker around my kids. My personal opinion is that as long as they’re not swearing at someone and they use it in the right context, who the hell cares if they swear?! 🤷🏻♀️ . Oh and I just let them eat their 3rd cheese strings of the day, a sleeve of ritz and there’s not a veggie or a piece of fruit to be seen because we need groceries and I don’t have it in me to tackle the grocery store with 2 kids dripping in “you let that horrible nurse lady stick me with a needle yesterday and I’m going to make you pay for it” attitudes. Plus, we’re on Myles’ side of the bed so I won’t even have to deal with the crumbs later. #momwin 😏 . I was in an instagram hole today looking at all the “perfect moms” and I thought, I bet her house is a nightmare like mine and she just pushed all the shit outta the way for the photos. . The truth is, none of us are perfect moms. You do you and I’ll do me and we’ll both be hoping we don’t screw it up. . What about you? What kind of a parent are you? Are we the same???? Are we mom besties and we don’t know it yet?!
Do you wash your produce ? "Washing will help remove bacteria, including E.coli, from the surface of fruit and vegetables. Most of the bacteria will be in the soil attached to the produce. It is always advisable to wash all fruit and vegetables before you eat them to ensure they are clean and to help remove bacteria from the outside." Read the full article here⬇️⬇️⬇️ https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/how-to-wash-fruit-and-vegetables/ Ewww and not to mention ALL the hands that touch your produce before you get to it. People will be selective and specifically pick out what grape they want and rearrange them in a bag. Then you have another person touching each apple before picking the ones at the bottom out.... 🤔 On guard Concentrate cleaner is perfect for this task. I squeeze less that a teaspoon in my bowls and let them soak for 10 minutes. Then rinse. I have also noticed my produce stays fresh longer 🙌 #thewellnesswonder #thankfulfordōterra #doterraessentialoils #wellnessadvocate #thankfulfordōterra #oils #healthylifestyle #healthymind #doterra #naturalsolutions #momof4 #homeschool #produce #clean #momwin #simple #food #onguard
I listened to a podcast this week that talked about acknowledging and celebrating the small wins. Whether that be in parenting, business, a relationship or anything in life. It talked about when we don't celebrate the small things, our brain will actually stop producing dopamine, which is the chemical in the brain related to the sensation of pleasure. Overtime it can actually affect our enjoyment in doing all the things, especially when the things get hard. #scienceiscool So celebrating a small #momwin . I survived an adventure to costco with these two. We got all the necessities and made it home with no tears.🙌 What's your win of the day? #celebratethemoments #smallwins #everydaymom #livingthemomlife #therealmotherhood #personalgrowth #edmylett #podcasts #themoreyouknow
🛁personal/mom #win moment (and another anxiety confession)💧 . . this is only nix’s second time taking a bath without me sitting in the tub. the first time was last week with his cousin, while at my brothers (swim coach) house. you see, this bear is SO WIGGLY, and I’ve been absolutely terrified he’d somehow hurt himself/fall/I don’t know...but I am trying every day to #letgo a little. To face my anxiety and win!! . . to anyone who knows me as a mom, I hate messes (it stressed out my ocpd... I promise I’m a ball of fun 😂) so yesterday I let him have a picnic on the floor - he threw it everywhere, but then got down on his pb&j!! today I let him just have his ravioli and squish it all over 🥴...and then he took a bath!! . . this may sound kind of silly to some, but I feel like this is a huge win for me!! and I’ve got my sister in law to thank for some inspiration! i am trying to be a better mom, better wife, better person, each and every day!! And today, I won 🙌🏼

In my Baby Led Weaning🥑 and Starting Solids 🥄courses, I teach parents to wait to start solids until baby is 6 months of age AND showing signs of readiness. I find that once parents learn the signs of readiness, they proceed with first foods with more confidence!🙋🏾 I'll be doing a series here on signs of readiness.Here is sign #1 . . . 😏Interest: Baby should be interested in food and want to participate in mealtime. Postpone solids until you observe this interest or you see baby try to snag food off your plate! Paying close attention to their interest level will also allow you to understand their fullness cues once you start solids. . . 📓Starting Solids Homework: Once a week have baby sit onyour lap while you are eating to see if there is any interest in food. What were your babies signs of readiness? #MsDawnSLP #startingsolids #firstfoods

Winter is Coming: Post 2 A few more necessities.... Oregano in the diffuser and/or diluted on the bottoms of our feet whenever we know we've been exposed to yuck. (Don't know what "diluted" means? That's what I'm here for!) Clarity and Peppermint in my diffuser necklace every single morning for a clear mind and an energy boost. And Tea Tree in a spray or in the kids conditioner. Because we don't want any yuck in their hair, either, if you catch my drift. 😉🐜 (Need a recipe? Again, that's what I'm here for.) Answering questions and helping people learn to use their oils to stay healthy makes me thrive. I love getting messages from my members with questions and success stories or friends who don't know much about oils but want to learn... that's why I keep talking about oils!

Instead of doing what I should be doing on a Saturday I spent it out running around.....but I did find these beautiful items! I'm a firm believer that kids need to be challenged to stay engaged with their toys! These are border line for Grace at the moment but I know she'll get there. Puzzles are great for spacial awareness and fine motor skills! Challenge your kids in all areas to make them stronger and wiser. Shared in by stories about these so you can see them in action! You'll thank me later for this one😉
9.5 miles. I almost ugly cried happy tears this morning when I did it. These longer Saturday run/walks give me a long uninterrupted time to think about A LOT of things. The school year coming, the beautiful town we live in, those families who have lost loved ones to the crappy disease called CANCER and those who are fighting it right now, my pastor and his family, families who have suddenly and unexpectedly lost a family member, God’s never-ending love and grace for us, my friends and family, thankfulness for my body that I can put one foot in front of the other and keep on keeping on......💙 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I never thought I’d be where I am today. Week 14 of my training for the #hersheyhalf and actually being able to make it through these long miles! Having the support and encouragement of my hubby, my virtual accountability group and the online workouts that I can do at home on non-running days have really helped keep me on track. ✌️ If you are looking for accountability in your health journey...reach out to me. I’d love to help you reach your goals.

Took my 3.5 year old to his first movie at the theaters today... And I have to say that I'm impressed at how well he did.

“My kid won’t eat healthy food.” 😬🤷🏼♀️ If that’s all they have and know, trust me folks, they’ll either eat it, or it will wind up on the floor. 🥗🥦🍉 A toddler doesn’t magically walk to the store when they’re 2 and start throwing cheese, white bread and chicken nuggets into your shopping cart.🛒 #amiright We are the ones responsible for our children’s health, their mindset surrounding healthy food, and their daily sugar/processed food intake. #ouch yeah it hurts. But it’s time for some accountability, parents.✔️ #noexcuses Guys, my daughter is SUPER PICKY. Like no jokes, she just decided out of the blue a week ago that bananas are "icky." Now she wont touch them. Vegetables? They wind up on the floor 99.99% of the time. Shhh... Here is my secret weapon: I give my daughter greens every day!! She 😍😍😍 them, and I 😍😍😍 giving her a healthy diet!! Win, win!! #chocolategreens #momwin #nomoreveggiemesses #gettingkidstoeathealthy #parenting
These random hairs coming out of weird spots on my head don't give a shit about my wants and needs. They don't care that I'm annoyed with them, that I want them to go the hell away and let me live my life, or that I consider them my mortal enemy. ⠀ ⠀ They just do what they want to and grow anyway. ⠀ ⠀ Now, I'm not going to say that I like these things any more since I had this very weird thought; I think they're terrible and I would still punch every weird hair in the face if they were people. But I did realize that this was something we don't think about enough. ⠀ ⠀ If people try to judge you, grow anyway. ⠀ If you encounter spiteful opinions, grow anyway. ⠀ If anyone tries to destroy the growth you've already gained, regroup and then grow again anyway. ⠀ ⠀ Don't let 'em get you down, love.

Not the prettiest of pictures but I have to share this! I've been listening to this book as my personal development because, let's face it, I feel like I fall short a lot as a mom! Well I finally put it into action today when my 6 yr old refused a nap. I tried verbally convincing him it would be better if he napped so we could all stay up late together, but he still refused and said he wanted to go to bed at his normal time. So I whipped out a pencil and paper and this is what happened. I had him tell me all the things he proposed to happen during nap time, then I added mine at the end. Then we crossed off the things he didnt want and I showed him from the list that when we cross off no nap, that means he goes to bed right after church and spends his time before church eating and getting ready for bed. Once he was able to visually see what would happen if he chose not to nap, HE made the choice to take a nap! I hesitate giving my kids freedom to make their own choices on things like this where I know he'll be better off doing what I've said, but this method got him to choose (excitedly might I add) to do what I wanted him to do! #ParentWin #MomWin #PersonalDevelopment #BoyMom #Communication #howtotalksokidswilllisten #howtotalktokids

We went for the best walk today with the kids! ☀️ All the way down Wheelock trail, to ashuelot park! Harley did most of the running, while Hendrix tried to keep up! I knew we were gonna have to hydrate the kids with something refreshing & hydrating when we got back home to refuel their little bodies! And now that we know better, we only hydrate their bodies with real ingredients, and the difference has been amazing! 🙌🏼 Your probably thinking....Kids + Sports = Gatorade? That's the brand that typically comes to mind and the product that everyone usually reaches for on the way to the field. But is it the healthiest choice? You decide. It's important to make sure your sports drink isn't doing more harm than good! Know the facts & read the labels!!! Many sports drinks have excess calories, are high in sugar, and are filled with artificial flavors, colors, and sweeteners. Why not choose a sports drink that can energize and hydrate the body without too much sugar or harmful add-ins? Hydrate has only 8 grams of sugar and 35 calories per serving! It's a great way for anyone to stay hydrated without the bad stuff cause it has ZERO artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. You can tell Hendrix approves 😋 This has been our goto summer drink!!!!

Want a quick, easy healthy meal idea? . 👉🏻Buddha Bowl for the WIN!👈🏻 . Buddha bowls are without a doubt one of my most favorite and easiest meal prep meals ever! So versatile. So easy to prep! You can throw literally anything in and make it your own! And it’s a complete meal in one bowl! 👊🏻 . Here’s what I’m currently devouring: 🍗shredded chicken from a leftover rotisserie chicken 🥕steamed mixed veggies I had prepped earlier in the week 🍚 brown rice 🥄teaspoon of liquid aminos (because it’s gluten free and regular soy sauce doesn’t agree with my gut) And because it was all pre-prepped it literally took me less than 5 minutes to put together and heat up! 🙌🏻 So delicious and filling! Best of all I know exactly what’s in there and it’s portioned to fuel my body. No guessing. No junk. It’s a great option to pack for lunch at work, or even in your little’s school lunchbox! Believe it or not, my girls love Buddha Bowls. And I love that I know exactly what they’re putting into their bodies! #momwin Do you love Buddha Bowls? Drop me a comment and tell me what you put in yours! I’m always looking for new ways to mix it up! . . . . #buddhabowl #ultimateportionfix #foodisfuel #fuelyourbody #eattherainbow #upfmastercoach #schoollunchideas #buddhabowlrecipes #healthyfood #weekendvibes #failtoplanplantofail #mealprep #cleaneating #eatyourveggies #cleaneating #fitfood #fitlife #girlmom #momofgirls #girlmomlife #fixyourportions #fixlifestyle #wellnesscoach #fitfamily #fitandhealthy #healthyrecipes #easymealprep #healthyhabits #glutenfreerecipes

Dearest baby boy, Watching you fearlessly run up, down, back and forth in total freedom and joy reminded me that you will be fine. You’ll be fine for the next however long as I hover night and day over a strange little person, constantly holding and kissing her like I used to do with you. You’ll be fine when at moments I may just regretfully lose it on you because I’m so exhausted and incoherent. You’ll be fine when you cry and I can’t respond to you right away like I used to and you’ll be fine when I chose her over you at certain moments. I know you’ll be fine... but I don’t know if I will be. I don’t know if I’ll be fine with putting you aside while I attend to your little sister. I don’t know if I’ll be fine with handing you off to daddy and everyone else when you cry for me and I absolutely can’t be with you at that moment. I don’t know if I’ll be fine when I’m up at 3 am with your sister, bawling my eyes out wondering if I’m doing enough for you or missing anything important in your life. I won’t know. But what gives me comfort is reflecting upon these last 19 months we’ve had together and you proved your resilience, independence, brilliance and kind heart. It gives me peace knowing you are in God’s hands and have always been. You will be JUST FINE. And I hope I will be too. Let’s enjoy these last 2 months together as much as we can sweet boy.
