Word on the street is my all time favorite blow dryer is back this weekend for $25 with a purchase! Then it's gone again! It dries my hair fast and is not to heavy! Ceramic and tourmaline technology to minimize damage! Hmm...how many should I get for gifts, giveaways, guest bath...so many decisions :).

🐝Be who you are and say what you will, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. ❤️ -dr suess -
Well... there goes my bracket 🙈 Was really hoping that my @sundevilhoops were gonna show up with the ultimate Cinderella story. You can call me lots of things, but a fair weather fan is not one of them!!⠀
Who do you want to see take it all the way to the championship game?⠀

I L.O.V.E. that my kiddos LOVE the free fruits stand at Kroger!
I L.O.V.E. that Elias and Micah will both ask for seconds (and thirds) of roasted veggies at dinner!
I L.O.V.E. that everyone in my house chugs "apple juice" (actually a varied combo of celery, kale, cucumber, ginger, rhubarb, carrots, with a couple of apples fresh from our juicer) every single morning!
This has not come about naturally.
It has come about INTENTIONALLY.
Rick and I have intentionally and steadily pushed for real food in our home. We have steadily and deliberately kicked packaged foods, artificial flavors, and chemical preservatives out of our home, and replaced them with clean nutrients.
Let me tell you, though- it has been a PROCESS!
It has taken Work. Sacrifice. Surrender.
I have invested a ton of time seeking sound information to know better, so that I can do better.
And I know I can still do so much better for my family!
Y'all. It is so worth it!
So worth it to see my kiddos THRIVING, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
So worth it to know that I am putting in the effort to steward my family's health to the BEST of my abilities!
Plants bring LIFE! As God intended them to.
The more I learn and apply, the more I witness greater and greater abundance pouring into our lives! .
And oh so worth the effort.
One of my little loves asked me today if the leprechauns visited my nails.....🤣😂🍀🌈

After our lunch date with Daddy, Ryan and I had a great day out and about. We hit all the good places Target, Michaels, Costco, and Ross. I picked up some stuff to start doing sensory play with Ryan. I love how inexpensive it is!
If my life were a movie it would be Cheaper By The Dozen! We had friends over for spring break today and boy was it loud! There were times when I would want to tell them to stop running or quiet down because I couldn’t hear myself think. Then I remembered that someday I will be in this house and there won’t be any feet pattering on the floor or giggles coming from another room. So instead I soaked up every loud, chaotic, joyful moment with them and thanked God for all their little souls. Cherish these moments, they go by so quickly. Do you ever feel like life is going by too quickly?!
Alright this might be tied for 🥇 place when it comes to favorite meals......Jimmy ate it ALL! 😱👌🏼 Like went back to the kitchen till it was gone 😋 🌈 Maple Glazed Brussel sprouts with Turkey Breakfast sausage over rice 🌈

Amanda Auer shares the story of her unique journey of becoming momma to four children, and how she and her sweet family are recovering this side of her three-year-old daughter’s recent heart transplant.
Amanda and Husband Josh have graciously opened their lives to the world via social media in the midst of their “hard stuff” and in turn sparked incredible hope through Christ to thousands.
Have you ever been canoeing as a family? Today was a first for us all and we had so much fun!
It was a little windy and we had to get the hang of rowing, turning and steering. We were rocking and swaying until we got into a rhythm.
Everyone had an oar and was able to participate. The kids all had turns and loved calling out which way to go.
We sang songs and even got to rescue a young boys remote controlled boat that was stranded out in the lake when it lost power. The kids were ready for the mission and happy to return it to him. Just call us the Can Do rescue squad 😉
Did we all get wet, lol you know it! Did we have to strip down from head to toe and take showers to get all the sand, dirt and lake water off yep!
Do we need to work on our disembarking ummm that’s a must 😂 Mommy might of been doing the splits with one leg on shore and the other still in the boat while attempting to not flip the canoe over and turn the canoeing experience into a family swim session. Let’s just say mommy is super flexible and graceful too 🤣 Nobody fell in the water and only one of mommies legs got soaked!
We had a blast and look forward to many more water activities this spring and summer.
What funny water stories do you have? We’d love to hear them 🤗
Low quality photo, high quality giggles & girl talk.
I’ve said it before - I’ll say it again. Motherhood is WONDERFULLY exhausting... from the 3 a.m. hang out sessions, followed by the 7 a.m. desperate coffee runs, to the heart exploding hysteria filled nights watching her sleep (AND trying not to breathe in the wrong direction as to not wake the beast! 🤣), and all the shenanigans in between.
Nothing and no one could have prepared me for this kind of big love. I have a built in best gal for life and I simply cannot.get.ENOUGH!
