We ran into Santa 🎅 at Kohl’s. He was getting bulls of coffee for all the mommies out there. #santa #momlife #sahm #christmas
💫What if we showed them that living a life without fear and pursuing our dreams was worth it!💫
You are allowed to want more for yourself. You are allowed to pursue greatness. You are allowed to have big dreams like starting a mega million dollar company, and you're allowed to have smaller ones like starting a local book club. .
Unfortunately, many women, especially after we become moms, let their dreams die at their own expense. They're afraid they'll fail. They're afraid they'll say, "I told you so." They're living with lies in their heads that tell them it's never going to happen, so just give up.
How do I know this! Because IT HAPPENS TO ME! Y'all, I made this community because I needed something like this! I needed to know that I was made for SO MUCH MORE. .
All that negativity you hear. All those lies being told between your ears...it's called spiritual warfare. AKA the devil.
And I'm here to tell him BACK OFF! Don't let him fool you because man, he will go to the end of the Earth to make you believe you're never going to be good enough. All those negative, self limiting beliefs in your mind are LIES. .
It's time to rise above and take that leap anyways. Is it scary! You bet. But I'd rather die trying to make my dreams a reality than give the devil one single ounce of my time. 😎💪
Thad is off on another trip leaving Oaklee and I to our devices. Finished the rough draft of an article I was asked to write, Oaklee discovered Christmas presents and rolled on her favorite rug, roast is in the pot and the coffee is still hot. I would say this morning has gone rather well, I hope the next ten days go this smoothly.

Heading to my hometown in Baltimore with my little elf and little reindeer for some Christmas festivities today! Do you know of any fun Christmas things to do in Pennsylvania or Maryland! Me and my babes would love to know! ❤️🎄🎅🏻
My kiddos are definitely getting older and they don’t “need me” as much as they once did, BUT I’m so BLESSED and thankful I’m able to work from my phone and be here when they do need me!!! #sahm #WorkinFromMyPhone #Boss #MyOwnBoss. #MyHours #Kids
This is a million days late but I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t late for everything! 😂🤣 Riley is 8 months old!!! She has the cutest two front teeth ever, a smile that could melt even Jack Frosts heart, and the personality of a Disney princess. If this continues Jesse and I are going to be in big trouble!! 😱♥️✨ #rileyfranziska #8monthsold #sahm #disneybaby #livingourbestlife #mygirl
It’s all about balance. Am I going out later to celebrate my girl Brittany’s first rope climb, yes! Will I eat something that’s probably not the best for me, very likely. So, I am loading up on a ton of yummy greens now I preparation... and let’s be real... it’s friggin delicious #corelife. I could have just said “No thanks, you can celebrate without me.” But, come on, what is life without getting out and being sociable! Have fun, live your life! You are not undoing everything the one time you eat a burger rather than a kale salad. Really. It’s okay! #liveyolife Happy Thursday!!

14 months! I've had a few trims and A LOT of bleach on my hair in the last year but I've recently gone back towards my natural color. I use heat on my hair probably every other day! Between that and the bleach I LOVE how healthy it still is!
Right pic is after using shampoo,hair masque, mousse and blow drying only! 🌿WHAT IS IT + a hair care line that is toxin free, anti-aging, and naturally and botanically based. These products are not tested on animals, are proven to reduce signs of aging, and everything is both vegan and cruelty-free. + repairs damage from color, heat, and the elements, watch your hair not only grow, but transform. + We have a less than 1% return rate, with at present, (May 2018) 560,000 Happy VIP customers! + Our ingredients are naturally-based, safe, pure and sustainable. But with other brands recognizing the power of botanical oils, how is this product any different
The answer lies in our rich formulations that make these naturally-based ingredients work in
harmony with each other, combining and reacting to pump up their natural properties to take these products to the next level.
We don't use the heavy, harsh, potentially hazardous chemicals that the majority of other lines use. So, what's missing Absolutely nothing - nothing your hair will miss, that is.
Here's a quick list of what you won't - and will never find in any of these products:
NO Parabens - Could be linked to chronic disorders.
NO Sulfates - irritating to skin and scalp.
NO DEA/MEA - can be irritating to skin and eyes and could be linked to chronic disorders.
NO Phthalates - long-term exposure could be toxic.
NO PEG - can be linked to chronic disorders.
NO Phenoxyethanol - can be irritating to the eyes and skin.
NO Ethanol - can be drying to the hair and cause frizz and damage.
NO Petrochemicals - can coat the hair shaft causing moisture loss and suffocation of the shaft.
NO Glutens - can cause allergic reactions to sensitive individuals.
NO Sodium Chloride and NO Harsh Salt System - can build up in tissues and cause dryness and dehydration.
NO Harmful Colors - can be toxic to skin and scalp and linked to chronic disorders.
NO Harmful Fragrances -
Got three pairs of new shoes, which was much needed. My husband thought these fit me so we got em and they match the grocery store floor 😍 gratuitous post 📸
The holiday season brings with it a very botchy schedule for the kiddos. Their Dad and I alternate holidays and combined with our regularly scheduled routine, there were more weekends than normal that I was without my kiddos. At first I was ECSTATIC - can you say Mommy vacation! Here's the thing, though, about being a Momma: You hear your children even when they're not there. Without even trying, I live and breathe my babies, minute by minute, with or without them in sight. I have one photo taken from the past month of Jolene, Mick and myself because our time to have adventures together has been short-lived amongst the hours spent with their Dad and the time we spent at home nursing ear infections, colds and a rogue bout of the stomach flu. I'll take it. #exposetheMOMents
A little throwback from my trip to Utah for earning Silver Retreat. The trip I almost didn’t go on, but so glad I did! .
I am just a mama of 2 beautiful girls, married to a handsome marine 🤤 Sharing my passion through Young Living. Young Living has been such a blessing to our little family in more ways than I thought possible. Young Living gives me the opportunity to help change people's lives, just by sharing how amazing these products are and helping families find what works for them. .
❤️ 💧 I LOVE helping other Mama’s find their purpose. Helping Mama's that feel stuck in their day to day routine, to find a purpose by helping others! That was ME 3 years ago!!! I felt like I was drowning in snotty noses, poop 💩, and kid chaos. While struggling with my own health issues. .
We cashed in our frequent flyer pass to the doctors office for this extraordinary plant juice and an amazing community. .
Feeling extremely grateful today, for our health, my thriving business and life long friends. If I can flip a 360 on my kids health, my health and my life in general, SO CAN YOU!💕😘

Note to self: Just... keep... going! I’m about to start another long evening of making your orders. So if you’re waiting for something to arrive, check your emails tomorrow for a dispatch notification 😊 I know I’ve said this before, but THANK YOU. Being so busy is still a very strange feeling and I feel very lucky to be able to do what I love and manage to fit it in around being a SAHM 😘😘😘
I’ve lost count of how many toy bags I’ve made recently- but here’s one 👆🏼 in the classic Queue for the Zoo print 🦒🐘🦎🐃🦜

Pretend like its the weekend now...
Work flow interrupted by the sweetest little boy around this morning. 😍 I’ll take it any day even at the worst or moments.
I wake up early so I can enjoy moments like this with a lot of productivity already under my belt and because I rather spend the rest of my day loving on him and asking him all sorts of questions because toddlers say the darnest things!
“Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life! "
For real though.. I just unloaded the dishwasher during lunch, then reloaded it and it’s running AGAIN! 😫
All hand cream and lip balm duos bought today will receive a complimentary gel nail polish!
We play silly games sometimes with my family like who can throw a ball into a laundry basket with their eyes closed. We get to where we are really good at it. That’s the same thing in life .. sometimes things are hard to do, but if we #work hard, stop complaining maybe we can reach our #goals just a little quicker!
Today is a huge deal for this mama. Almost 2 years ago I said my final goodbye to corporate America and today we got to start soccer with Michael’s friends every Thur from 1-2. In my past life this would have never been possible. I am forever grateful for the freedom I have #becauseoflularoe #littlekickers #totalsoccer #soccerplayer #adidas
Yesterday we #homeschooled, today we watch #HarryPotter. 📚🧙🏻♀️ I planned to take today off because I wanted to clean and organize the house, we were also supposed to go to the #library to see #Santa and hear him read a book, but it’s cold and we’re tired. SO, here we are. On the couch. Watching Harry Potter. (And clean intermittently) 🧡🧹🧺🧼🧙🏻♀️🧙🏻♂️ #SAHM #MomLife
Y'all!! Can we talk about fear! I wasn't able to open a whole lot of slots this week but the ones I did Fully booked! Except 1 I just decided to open since getting my trial cert... Heh. I know it's doable! I know I CAN teach from 3am-6:30am and classes at night. I KNOW if I open it, it WILL be booked. So what's holding me back FEAR! I'm still a newbie and I have to be honest, back to back classes, VERY EARLY mornings.... Scare me a little.Sunday is my first day with 4 classes back to back.. I think two of them are UAs.... Eeep!! So my question for you is.. how do you work out your schedule Especially those of you who have young kids ( mine are 3 and 2 years old). My husband leaves for work at about 6:45. I'm more of a night owl... Are there some of you who do only nights Just curious!:-)

Bit of a filter needed here for a tired looking Mama! This little one had me up for about 2 hours straight last night, and I went to bed pretty late because it was one of those rare occasions that I went out! Just dinner with my best mummy friend, as we’ve otherwise been quarantined lately with the chicken pox! Needless to say I’m having an early night and hoping very much that Makena will learn someday to sleep all night in her own cot and not keep me up by pulling out individual strands of my hair at 3am 😫. #mygirl #sleepy #naptime #tiredmama #upallnight #cosleeping #mumlife #sahm #sahmlife #mummyblogger #ukmummyblogger #ukparentbloggers
Ladies and gents.... the ULTIMATE under the tree must have. Grab our lash boost and our NEW 🌟 Radiant Defense + Brush in the cutest little sparky box. Give the gift of glowing skin and luscious lashes 🤩🖤🎄
I listened to a podcast about self respect this morning.
It was fabulous.
One thing that stuck out to me was we gain self respect when we follow through with what we say we will do, or not do. The opposite is also true. I lose self respect if I don’t follow through.
I think that’s what happened with my exercise. I would tell myself I was going to do it! And I did for a while but then I stopped. And then the cycle would start over again.
Then I joined an online fitness group. I am still in charge of my own exercise but having a motivating and encouraging support group of friends has been HUGE for me. I love it! My self respect has grown, my confidence has increased greatly, my energy levels are up and so naturally my spiritual self is in a good position as well as my overall zest for life.
Christmas is around the corner. Give yourself or ask for the gift that keeps on giving - HEALTH!! A new group starts in January and I would LOVE to have you join! It’s so worth every penny! Make a goal for 2019 to be your best yet!!
When you have to try on the #jackfrost costume (swipe) and the Xmas Fairy wants to join in, calls for an impromptu photo shoot wouldn't you say 🤣
Absolutely terrible camara quality as my phone is full so I've been using a camara app 🙈 oh and the light fitting is broken and it was already dark outside so I was working with just the phone flash and a thrown together set 🤦♀️😂 but I did it anyway 🤷♀️
The twins have to take their costumes to school tomorrow and I'm not sure how well the Jack Frost will hold up with a change for rehearsals as well as on the day too! 🙄 lol just need to find wings.. oh and this cements it, I 100% need a decent Camara!!! Can anyone recommend a budget friendly yet decent set up pwetty pwease! #xmasphotos
What if I told you that you can start your business for only $49 this month! ☺️ Achieve a thriving business, great hair, and a supportive team that helps you build along the way! Just ask me how! ❤️ #monat #healthyhairrevolution #sahm #supportstayathomemoms
Evening all...here’s the definition of irony for you:
The husband surprised me last night with a message saying he’s booked a hotel stay in Aberdeen for Saturday and our annual Christmas date day. Today however, poor Hugo woke up coughing, and has progressively got worse as the day’s gone on, despite me giving him his inhaler and calpol at regular intervals. 😣
In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter if we don’t get out, as obviously Hugo’s health is more important, but oh gosh how I needed this day/night away. We had to cancel John’s birthday getaway back in September last minute as the poor wee lad ended up in hospital then too. Sod’s law hey .
Anyway, I hope you’ve had a lovely Thursday, keep your fingers crossed for me that my littlest improves. 🤞🏼💛

This is how Casey feels about the rain and moody skies and Christmastime and making progress on work and tackling to-do lists. Ok, maybe I'm feeling like that. But he is pretty happy too. 💛

Some days I feel like all I do is wipe little booties! (Seriously, like what am I feeding my kids 😳) I am coming up on 1 yr of staying home and I have like 500 million different thoughts and emotions about how it has been but all I will say is I am beyond thankful for this past year!! God is so good and He is faithful.
