I am going to keep it real for a minute. Today sucks. Well that is until this pizza arrived. This morning was my microbiology lab final. Everything was going good. My stains were 👍🏻, my nerves were 👍🏻, and I was feeling good. Until I had to look through the microscope and everything went downhill. My microscope didn’t want to be my friend today. I ended up feeling rushed for my streak plating and other test stations. I ended up doubting everything and second guessing myself. It was ugly. When my professor announced “Times up”, I fought back the tears. I was supposed to have lecture right after, but I knew I needed to escape the halls of that building. I rushed to my car and the moment my butt hit the front seat, the tears came. The moment my door shut I let the one word that seems to release so much anger and frustration slip from my mouth. I screamed the F word. #ilovejesusbuticussalittle . I then drove down to my brothers wine shop where he makes these incredible personal sized pizzas because pizza always compliments tears and the F-word perfectly. .
This journey isn’t easy. It’s not always awesome and encouraging quotes. It’s real, it’s tiring, it’s ugly, and it’s extremely difficult, but we keep pushing and we pick ourselves up and we move forward.
I need to give a shout out to my hubs. Life has been chaos, we work opposite schedules, kids activities, moving, cleaning, prepping our house, etc. We discussed last night how long it's been since we've had an overnight getaway that wasn't an event or related to work. It's been over a year! .
He went and planned an overnight stay, just the two of us. If you know him, he is typically who will spreadsheet, plan and review before pulling the trigger on something. For him to just go ahead and book a room speaks volumes to my heart. .
He is a blessing and a gift to me. Thank you, Jakin for all you do for me and us!

Drowning in work + loving every second of it 💛 I never thought working would bring me so much joy — but I get to help others get healthy and empower women to chase their dreams. When I get a message saying “Megan I have never felt this confident before,” or when I see a coach on my team light up with passion helping her first client — that makes all the hustle and sacrifice WORTH IT. I used to read that kinda thing and think it was BS, until I made the decision to fill my life with purpose. And girlfriend if I can do it... WHY NOT YOU! 💛⠀
PS: We’ve got a big surprise coming today so keep your eyes peeled 👀🤫

What do Sunday’s look like in your corner of the world
Sunday’s are our FAVORITE day.
It’s my husbands only day off.
Owning a busy restaurant leaves little down time. We’re used to it, it’s our normal now 😁
Sunday is our day to catch up with each other, & as a family. We look forward to this day all week. ••
We love Jesus, we reflect, we’re thankful. We know how blessed we are. We know if it wasn’t for Him we wouldn’t be where we are, & have the life we have.
We serve others. We try to live an honest kind life.
But we don’t go to church regularly. Or even very often 🤷♀️
I won’t preach to you or push my beliefs on you, but I will talk about my faith sometimes. & how He has helped me get to a place of peace & love within myself. ••
However you choose to spend your day, if it’s at church with your family, relaxing at home gearing up for the week ahead, or if you’re like us & spend the day with your family being thankful, I hope you have an amazing day. A day that fills you up vs draining you. ••
Be humble, stay kind, put 100% into everything you do & you can’t go wrong 💗

Podcast intro recording going down tonight!
If you haven’t heard yet....I’m launching @faithandotherfwords podcast
No bible verses. No doctrine. No religion.
Just good ole girl talk and empowerment ✌️ to remind millennial badass babes that Gods in their corner and they’re created to be fucking brilliant.
#shereadstruth #ilovejesusbuticussalittle #shepersisted
Day 13 of #marchmeetthemaker is "Hands at work".
This isn't exactly a photo of my hands at work, but it will have to do!
And now you get a peek at a few of many new designs debuting at @indymademarket and @thecollective_group this Saturday!
These hands of mine have been very busy these past few weeks getting ready for market season to begin. That's why you probably won't see my nails looking very nice anytime soon 🙈
We saw Captain Marvel this weekend!!! 🌟🤩 It was amazing!!! #captainmarvelmovie .
I came away with this...I have the freedom to change lives if I will change my perspective & stop collecting other people’s opinions of what my life “should” look & sound like! 🤯 So cheers to LIVING OUT LOUD & doing life w/ others that push...challenge...love on & hold me accountable AF!🤬🔥🖤💎🚀
I’m somewhere in the midst of ALL that. I’m still gonna show up and share the hard stuff- the tough lessons I’ve learned, the healing I’m working through, the good moments and not so good.
Social media can cause a serious prison cell called the comparison trap. Watching everyone’s highlight reel aka only the good moments or carefully hand picked photos or even sorrow filled moments- can mess with your mental health.
Thoughts of what is my life right now, I’m not doing anything with my life, what do I have to show for myself or I shouldn’t complain about my trials because they have it worse then me, that’s so bad of me for even feeling like I’m struggling when so and so is going through something more difficult. 🚨Newflash🚨
Most people aren’t willing to show their down moments because they feel like they’d be judged, look weak or made fun of. So they show all the highlight 😥
Or they share their trials and troubles and you suddenly feel like your trials and troubles are insignificant. You feel bad for even feeling like you are struggling so you minimize what’s going on in your life and paste on a fake smile and tell everyone everything is good.
No sis- just NO. We all go through shit 💩 ( #iloveJesusbutIcussalittle) and everything we go through individually has a purpose and is meant for our own personal growth.
So if you ask me how I’m doing- I might be good one day and crying my eyes out the next. Uncovering pain, ending the silence and working on me- it can be a painful process.
But.... I’m finding peace in the chaos, freedom in the uncovering, happiness in vocalizing and healing from my pain.
And I’m going to share it. So others find their voice and courage to be brave and boldly work on them in ways that mold them into who they want to become.
Sorry, not sorry if I keep it real as possible. I don’t have it all figured out🤷🏽♀️ I’m just a woman allowing God to work on her heart ❤️ and mind while inspiring and supporting others to do the same💕
I'm starting a PODCAST! Faith & Other F Words.
I'm somewhere between singing Cardi B and liking Jesus.
I'm somewhere between supporting Bernie Sanders and mimicking Gary Vaynerchuck.
I'm somewhere between live with your boyfriend before marriage if you want or wait till your married.
I'm somewhere between "TEQUILA shots!" and making it to church on Sunday because I actually LOVE going.
&& I'm 100% with GOD is fucking awesome.
I'm tired of hiding my Christianity because "Christian" has a awful stereotype.
I'm even MORE upset that humans go through life without God because religion or people have ruined God for them.
I can't imagine doing life without God. I literally want to cry when I think about this.
&& also.....people think Christians are weirdos. Or self-righteous assholes.
And I'm looking to change that.
I want to create a space and platform for millennial women to discuss faith, politics, dating, sex, wellness, quantum physics, gender identity, heaven, hell...you name it without judgement.
We're all trying to figure it out, why not do it together
No scripture verses. No condemning. No regurgitation of doctrine.
Just straight girl talk && intelligent conversations.
I'm going to keep it real and probably upset a lot of "Christians" in the process but this podcast isn't for thoseeee kind of peeple.
This is for the "spiritual" girl.
This is for the girl who has a close relationship with God but hasn't found a church or religion to call home.
This is for the agnostic or atheist girl looking to connect with like-minded women && learn intellectually why people believe in this "God" thing.
At the end of the day, I want to see badass women empowered by what God's created them to be.
I want them to be their BEST self so they can wholeheartedly show up and serve the world.
So let's go! 🙌🙌@faithandotherfwords
Drop a comment 👇if you'reee down to listen && vibe with this kind of movement!
I'd be honored if you tagged a like-minded friend too! 🦄🦄 #shereadstruth #empoweredwomen #ilovejesusbuticussalittle
I see we've added some new folks around here so I figured I'd do another introduction. I'm Rickeysha (Rih-key-shah) and yes my dad's name is Ricky lol. I help creative moms push past the need to be perfect and get stuff DONE. I'm a recovering perfectionist myself, but life taught me to strive for excellence instead. I was actually organizing a whole photoshoot so I can get the perfect shot for a new intro post then I decided I'm just gonna do it! I'm on a mission to help 100 women get their businesses on track in 2019. Click the link in my bio to find out all the ways you can borrow my brain for your business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

spent the afternoon with some of the most inspiring people I know. I also spent the last 3 minutes and 13 seconds of this workout staring at the wall with many failed attempts at a strict handstand push-up... #intheopen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ____________________________________________________

I don’t know what it is about this poem, but.... It gives chills almost every time I read it.
Lmao true AF
I definitely hit the jackpot when it comes to friends. When you have people in your life that just 'get' you and love you... you truly are blessed. Thank you, Nicole, for this perfect bracelet.
So.... I think that most people are going to tell you that “It’s okay that you didn’t workout today because you had a bad day,” or “I know you are just way too busy to eat healthy,” or “You should skip the part where you work on your mindset because it isn’t import.” “You should never drink water or eat vegetables.”
If you keep finding the people in your life that help you make excuses it is because they are scared that you are going to do something that they don’t want to do or aren’t ready to do.
Either find some peeps to tell it like it is or sometimes you have to be a lone wolf. Just saying.
Now, whatever excuses you keep making (I make them too sis) let’s stop letting our minds be a little bit #% and overcome this crap!!! Deal
I wrote this post last year on international women’s day: “There have been so many women that have shaped who I am. Arguably, these 4 have impacted me the most. All so different yet the same. My mom is my best friend and I grew up in a home knowing I was loved and valued and you can’t ask for much more. She taught me to feel feelings, that it’s okay to cry, that we face grief head on. My Auntie taught me to be kind and give grace; my first memories learning about Jesus are with her at Hillsdale. My Nana taught me to live within my means and make the most with what I have. All have prayed hundreds of prayers over me before I even knew what that meant. And then there’s Minnie B - the real HBIC. The queen. She taught me to speak my mind, to demand respect, that being spunky and a little irreverent is good, and that being a woman and working your ass off is okay. They all taught me that I can do what I want to do and be who I want to be. That whether you’re a CEO, a doctor, a creator, or a stay at home mom - all of those jobs are equally important and equally valued. I’m so thankful we live in a world where that is true for women. More than anything, I’m grateful for these strong, Southern women who made me into who I am today.” .
. (fast fwd to today)
I realized today, my ultimate goal is to be like them. Well, obviously, but here’s what I mean: not so much individually, but collectively. I want to speak my mind and cuss a little like my Nanny but I want to radiate kindness mirroring my Mom’s sweet demeanor. I want to live within my means and value simplicity like my Nana but I want to wear all the fur, metallic gold, and animal print in my closet like my Nanny. I want to work hard like my Nanny but I also want to work hard at making my house a home like my Auntie. That’s the beautiful thing about duality; I can be all of those things. Both / and.
I want to be a blend of these women who have spent hours praying over me, teaching me to cook in their sanctuaries (their kitchens), and telling me stories. And that’s the thing about growing up with strong, prayerful, colorful women - you become who you are with a little bit of them mixed in.
This last month I have had multiple of you reach out saying my posts are encouraging. I would like to say THANK YOU! Thank you for being brave and reaching out to me. Thank you for following me! Thank you for sending the encouragement back to me!
BUT I also want to say on here I sometimes cry, I struggle WAY more than I want to admit, and I DEFINITELY use filters ;) So if you find yourself in the comparing game, know that I do too! It is easy to hop on here and scroll all the accounts where life appears PERFECT for the person in the picture. But know that on my account, I am a real person! When I send a nice to meet you message and ask what you enjoy I truly want to know. If you comment on my posts, I want to respond! And if I drop the ball on getting back to you, it is because I am human! I get tired, I overlook things, I have excuses, and/or I am busy with whatever life has thrown to me!

Other people’s opinions of me are🚫none of my business ~Rachel Hollis
Possibly the most important thing I’ve learned since starting my coaching business (finding my tribe). I never would have learned this or believed I could (much less deserved) live my life out loud as (a lil’ crazy/geeky/rocker chick/no drama Mom-ing) ME! 🙋🏻♀️ 💪🏼💚🙏🏼🤓🌮🍫🍷☕️🧗🏻♀️🏔🇩🇪🗺🖤🤟🏻🤬🐕
When you decide—-Well Boy’s I guess it’s time to stop cussing.
Scout: Mommy all mommies have to say bullshit.
Me: no babe. No they don’t. I shouldn’t say that.
Yes you dooooooi!!!!!!! Mommies have to say bullshit. It’s what they say. 🙄
And NO I’m not proud of this but i figure if I put it out there you can’t judge me when you hear him tell me this in person. 🥴 #boymom #scarymommy #ilovejesusbuticussalittle
A different sort of a Wander today!! And yep, I’ve got a little something in my forehead.
He got me GOOD!! Though it’s not a day of obligation, it just felt right to start these next 40 days of a Lenten journey, with some time spent with Him.
Get my head, my ears, my spirit, focused on Him and His sacrifice for us. His love for us. His incredible service for us!
But dudes, it’s cold and windy out here! Time to wander a little further and get some coffee!! Because on this day of fasting, that’s something that I CAN have!!! All the coffee!! ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ #lentenseason #40days #coffeelover☕️ #ilovejesusbuticussalittle #findingmyself
Daily routine. @adamsandler has his phone, wallet, keys... I have my devo, Vickie’s, keys. 🤣
Well apparently Fat Tuesday called for chocolate cake 🤷🏻♀️ in our household. I throughly enjoyed a slice. And there is still a lot left. OMGAWH.
And I always give up sweets / desserts for LENT. That cake needs to leave the house!
Do you give up anything or challenge yourself with something during LENT 👇🏼👇🏼
Sometimes you have to be selfish to be selfless. (And really it isn’t being selfish, but necessary ♥️). Especially when it comes to your health. Nothing is more important than you being strong, happy and healthy. Taking care of you allows you to take better care of everyone else. XO 😘 Amy
I love @barefootfive ... She speaks her truth and it is so damn refreshing. Y’all we don’t have to put up with assholes. Kick them to the curb. Being the #nicegirl doesn’t mean that you can’t be a badass when you need to. Self respect looks a lot like standing up for yourself in toxic relationships. It looks a lot like pruning dead fruit from the friendship tree. You don’t have to be polite to someone who treated you like crap. You do however have to own your part and your part is taking out the pruning shears and saying NO MORE. We can love them like Jesus from a distance that is safe for our souls!! This goes for anyone in your life. It makes me so sad to see the so called nice girl get run over time and time again. So if this is you....here is your permission slip or sign or whatever it is you feel like you needed to erect some healthy boundaries with people who make you feel even a little bit icky. They are not your tribe.
There is no shortcut.
It takes time to build a better, stronger, more confident you.
So instead of jumping from diet to diet, from program to program...be patient. You will not see change in two days. Your body isn’t Amazon Prime 😏. It took your body more than a couple days, a couple weeks, hell quite possibly more than a couple months to gain the weight. It’s going to take time, effort and patience to hit your fat loss / weight loss goal.
Patience typically is not our strong point. But in the end, when you reach that goal, you won’t care how long it took. The fact that you didn’t quit will be all that matters. 💪🏼♥️
I’m still getting over a cold and I’m tired, you guys. But it’s Monday & Monday is a great excuse to start new! Since I still have to work, I’m stepping up my sweatshirt game with a chunky statement necklace and leopard flats! 🤘🏼maybe a little dry shampoo, too. 😘
Just because the battle is not finished, doesn’t mean you have not succeeded. Turn to God. Have peace. Trust in the Lord. 🙌🏼🙌🏼
