We fought for you from the beginning as getting pregnant isn't easy for us.
Losing you burned my heart to the deepest depths.
Beauty was made from your ashes and God gave us the triplets just a few months later.
I still think of you. I always will. 🍃

About 10 days ago, I embarked on a homebrew kombucha journey!! 🍷🍵 ... which has also turned out to be a great homeschool experiment 😁(my daughter named my Scoby Bob 😂)... Bob is growing nicely and my Kombucha is ALMOST ready for 2nd fermentation 😁😀
For those of you that brew your own Kombucha at home, I would love some 2nd fermentation suggestions 🤔🤔😁 I would like to add fruit to flavor it.. Best and worst fruits to add??🍇🍒🍓🍍... Do I leave it on the counter in the other bottles?? Help me turn Bob into the best Kombucha he can be 😉😉😉 #homebrewkombucha#DIY#fermentedfoods#scoby#homemade#guthealth#kombucha#fruits#homemaker#homeschoolmom#momof6#moneysavingmama
Moving on a Monday can sometimes be....well difficult!! 😆 I REALLY had to dig deep this morning to get my workout done 😬 Marathon training schedule was a 3 mile run (thank goodness!!) and then I did some strength 👊🏼 Weighted plank rows are one of my all-time favorites!!! Try them out and let me know whatcha think 🤔 3 sets of 20 (alternating) ✨✨
Do you KNOW that? Like really know that you CAN do anything you want? You just have to want it bad enough to do whatever it takes. -
I get it! I’m a 50 year old momma of 6 and life is not only busy and expensive, but I’m always needing to tweak my processes to fit the family flow. Not an easy task but definitely possible if we give up the excuses. 🙄
No excuses of ‘I don’t have enough time’, we all have the same 24 hours - it’s your choice on how you spend it. ⏰
No excuses of, ‘It’s too expensive’, I know I’ve spent the amount in small purchases that total the cost already - you have to decide if it’s worth it. 💰
No excuses of ‘what if they don’t like it?’, who’s ‘they’ anyway and why does it matter? You do you! 🤩
This week I want you to throw out the excuses and gain control of your wheel! 😎
So tell me, what excuses are you throwing out? 🤔
When we built our LEGO Cinderella Castle, we did a time lapse of the building process. It took several days with all the little boys help 😉 Man, I still love this set!! (whole video is on our YouTube channel, the first 15 seconds aren’t on this one)
I walked by the bathroom mirror in the laundry room and had to do a double take...i can’t believe that the body that birthed 6 kids and gained over a hundred pounds has a waist again. 💫
I pass a mirror and don’t look down or away in embarrassment anymore.
I’m full of energy and can keep up with my kids.
I love life. I love early mornings. I love hard things that push me out of my comfort zone. 💫
This is just the beginning. My journey has just started. And I’m so EXCITED for what’s to come. 💫
I’d LOVE to help you find YOU again and live your BEST life. If you’re ready to make that change drop me a 🙋♀️ and we can chat. #workingoutfromhome#yesyoucan#momswhoworkout#healthylifestyle#mywhy#realtalk#workingonme#loveyourself#momof6#believeinyourself
Getting older is hard sometimes. My mind has not caught up with my body (a.k.a. I'm pretty immature for my age). I have breakouts like a teen, but wrinkles like a more experienced individual. Gaining weight comes easy, losing weight is a frustrating challenge. My hair is turning whiter (which I love), and the texture is constantly changing (can't keep up). And don't get me started on all the hormonal hoopla.
BUT. I am happy to grow older. I'm happy to have collected almost 4 decades worth of memories. I'm happy that I'm growing in wisdom as time marches on. I'm happy to have a supportive husband who sees the beauty in me even when the world might believe it's fading. I'm happy to watch how independent and unique each of my children are becoming.
We fight so hard to avoid the inevitable. Why not embrace where you're headed instead of clinging so tightly to what was? I may not be aging gracefully, but I sure as heck am aging gratefully. 💗

Don't settle for the world's good when you can have God's best.
It can be difficult to look past the "good and comfortable" to the challenges that might lie ahead to get to the amazing life planned for you. #mondaymotivation
I have 6 children. Let that sink in 6. I remember when I was little thinking how much I wanted 10. 2 sets of twins and 2 sets of triplets 🤣🤦♀️ I haven’t had any twins or triplets and honestly I’m ok with that. My oldest is 10, then 8, 7, 5, 3 and 1. We haven’t spent much of our married life without a baby in tow seeing as we just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. Sometimes I look around at my kids and think maybe we could have one more but more often then not I look around and think “how in the world do I deal with all of this all the time?” Don’t get me wrong I love them all. I would lay my life down for them. But man they can try my patients, there are few quiet moments, and I rarely feel in control of anything that is going on. But in those fleeting quiet moments I know how blessed I am. I feel the spirit and know I am doing what I should be. That I am not failing as a mother, my house isn’t always clean, my laundry piles up, I yell, but my children know they are loved and safe. My husband and I have a solid marriage and those are the important things, those are the things that my children will look back on and remember. And that is enough. #iamenough#momlife#momof6#bigfamily#crazylovefamily#followingourpassion#letthembelittle#kids#lovelife❤️ #realmoms#reallife#parenthood_moments#mompreneur#chasingmoments
These 6 are my reason why.
Why I get up at 5am everyday to spend some quiet time reading my personal development books before our day starts.
Why drinking my superfoods everyday is non-negotiable.
Why I press play on my workout EVERYDAY, no matter the millions of excuses I can come up with to just skip one.
Why I work hard everyday to look after myself so I can be around for them. You see back in April I came close to having a stroke and landed in the hospital. My blood pressure was through the roof, I couldn’t see out of my left eye and I could use my left hand.
Fast forward to 7 months later focusing on my health, I’ve lost weight, have more energy and my blood pressure has never been better.
Becoming a coach is more then a job, it’s a passion that has saved my life. 💥

Besides my freakishly long fingers and the fact that I took this pic 12 times to see if they would look less like spider woman 😂.....you guys, these 4 oils are what I’m calling “Go to Frankin’ Sleep!” I’ve tested it out this month and it is working even on the nights we stayed up way too late! Normally the kids wake up the same time everyday, but not with this recipe! Frankincense and Lavender helps us fall asleep, Roman Chamomile helps us stay asleep and Ravintsara helps us all breathe consistently and deeply. 😴😴
2 drops each in the diffuser. Wake up rested and recharged!
Sleep is more important than BOTH diet AND exercise. It’s a major factor in your immune system because it’s when your body can regenerate cells and detox effectively.
What are your go to oils for bedtime?
When u have 4mo twins @ home n ur 3yo Sun apparently has his own pickney... He obviously felt like it was feeding time...hence he put on a bib and fed de ting food. Watch de mouth! STEUPPPSSSSSS!
I said,"I hope u didn't make a mess" He said,"No there is none....you want me to wash it off?" UMMMMMMM 😕(thinking ...play in water)....HELLLLLL NO... He good so! There will def be a mess then... 😁😝 #momof3under3 (twice) #toddlermom
We’re playing a game that the kids made up. We are bidding on Dinosaurs! 😂 🦕 🦖 I just won a Stegosaurus for $30 million. Where I’m going to put this thing... idk! 🤷🏻♀️
Woke up to some intense AF contractions • tears and deep breathing • lasted about an hour • stopped • so we all had breakfast • I took the dog and littlest mini on a mile walk • pit stop halfway through to sit and meditate (I may have fallen asleep) • she sat and had some tea • the air outside is very Fall and perfect and it was so peaceful • came home and cleaned all the windows and reorganized the kitchen 😂😂😂 • when you’re on day 4,362 of your last month of pregnancy • 40 weeks in 3 days • this is #6 and my final pregnancy and I know that I will look back and cherish these days • learning to do that NOW rather than just through a memory • patience and gratitude
Our squad is the BEST! These kids are the light of our lives. They are loud and hilarious. There is never a dull moment when the whole crew is here. They might fight like cats and dogs but they are fiercely protective of each other 😍 #hismineandours#bigfamilylife#momof6#cloud9#missingone
Harmony and Granny! 👶🏻👵 Yep that’s me and I’m a selfish Granny because I want my grands to remember me when I’m no longer around. 📸
I want them to laugh and tell funny stories about Granny and talk about how much I loved God and how much I loved each and every person in this big crazy family of ours! ❤️ Anyone else think about this kind of stuff? Maybe your young and have never thought of such things but none of us knows how long we will be here on this earth! Agree? 🙏🏻

Self care is so much more than “looks”!
4 weeks postpartum vs 2 weeks postpartum!🙌🏻
While there aren’t huge changes between these, I am finding my waist and abs again!
But more than anything it’s how much better I feel mentally and physically than I did with any other recovery.
Which I thought they were amazing. Until this one.
Self care is so much more than “looks”.
It’s getting enough sleep to keep the anger monster at bay during the newborn phase.
It’s eating food that actually nourishes our bodies and MINDS. What we put in our mouths feeds our brain. Those happy chemicals are mega affected by this!
It’s moving our bodies to keep us agile and help us bounce back after babies. But it also feeds those happy chemicals too.
So while it feels good to be getting back to where I am comfortable in my skin, I do it for way more reasons than that.❤️❤️ #4weekspostpartum#momof6#postpartumrecovery
