Experimenting with our Muddy paws sensory extension activity from our little hands @inspirebookbox♥ I had to get a little creative as some of our pieces had gone walkabout with the help of little hands🤣 But I do love that the inspire book boxes do come with all the pieces to create the crafts including glue. And that they are also totally achievable if like me some pieces go MIA. The girls loved touching and feeling these paw prints cards and discussing wether they were smooth or soft. I love that this activity interested Little Lilah and Miss Dot. Lilah enjoyed touching and feeling and Dot enjoyed discussing to Lilah how they felt different ♥📚
Alright friends. The kids are at school. The house is quiet. They'll never know you got rid of stuff. They'll just be happy the clutter is gone (and let's be honest, you will be too)! Tap the link in the profile to get a consultation on the books to declutter those closets, bedrooms, and playrooms to give your heart and home the peace you need. ❤️✌🏼#tiptuesday
Try replacing every 'have to' that you say with 'get to' and tell me that doesn't change your entire perspective on the privilege of living. 🤗
I GET TO wake up comfy and well-rested and start the day, I GET TO work and earn good money, I GET TO put fuel in my car, because I have a car and can travel freely. ✌
We don't have to do anything, but I'm so darn grateful that I get to. 💛
In that order. Remove the broken, the no longer used, the expired...you get the idea. Then get real with yourself about what's left. Do you really use 10 backpacks or do you only use 1 or 2? Do you really use 200 purses during the year? Or do you use 5 and the other 195 just sit taking up space and collecting dust? Can someone else use what you have excess of? Can you bless them with it? Can you recover some of that money and sell the item(s)? Once you have decluttered and minimized you'll have a much better picture of how much space something will take up so now you can organize it in a way that is easy to take out and put back. Reset = maintain. If you took it out put it back. It will help keep your space looking neat and next time you're looking for that item it will be right where it should be.
Quality~Quantity: When @kendallalexis and I were under one roof I didn't often have the time to sit and listen about the day she had ahead of her, watch her curl her hair, or any of the things that seemed mundane at the time. I was already out of the door to work or answering emails. Not seeing my girl has been hard yet I find the sweetest surprises throughout the day with unexpected face times, text, and phone calls. We've had more heart talks, coffee dates, wedding planning, devotionals, prayer, and Kendall has even faced time me on her shopppibg adventures. 😊❤️ Ha! There's no stopping that girl of mine! In the end it's not about the quantity of time you spend together it's about the quality of the time. I'm sure grateful I have a daughter that is creative, funny and does her very best to be present in my life. It means the world. It's moments like this I live for. ❤️ This was my wake up FaceTime from this morning! ☀️
Found these flowers in my daughter's fairy garden and thought they would make a pretty centerpiece when paired with my homemade table runner, made by my Grandma.❤ The simplest of things in life can bring a smile, but sometimes we are too busy to even notice.🙈 I am totally guilty of this as I passed by these flowers several times, noticing them, but not really enjoying them.

Who needs to declutter the shower shelf? 🙋🏼 If you are like me and have a three tiered rack of products staring at you everyday then keep reading about the two products that stream lined and simplified my shower routine for the last few weeks. Shower time = I am in there seeking peace and quiet. Did I just say that? Yes, #momlife . Peace and quiet unless they are at the door asking how much longer so I can make them a snack or my architect skills are needed in building Lego City.
Back to the rack... mine is three tiers and filled to the brim with beauty products for everything imaginable. (YES EVERY SINGLE ONE IS MINE) ⠀
On a recent trip, instead of packing a daunting amount of stuff for a short stay away I brought @meantsimply The Do All Wash* and The Do All Conditioner*. These are multitasking, do everything we need and more products. I said WE as in the family. We had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and shaving cream in these two products. Talk about #simplifying .
Being the one with long thick hair my first thought... can a mutltitasking product deliver in the hair care department? YES! I didnt have any problem with tangles or hydration and I was able to go the same amount of days in between washes. I have to mention for those who have young children, no issues with eye irritation, TEAR FREE! But most important of all these products are free of the nasties and filled with the good stuff. ⠀
My only negative is that with all the multitasking they did they are now empties. #totalsads Highly recommend!⠀
I don't have room to include the ingredients here so I will add them to the blog post 👌🏼⠀
Thank you Meant! ⠀
I just wanted a freaking avocado for lunch today dangit! And I just might have more for dinner, k? And all the protein in the world won't be able to save me from my high fat macro choices, but I just can't handle all the negativity today 🐥🚫🥑👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
Happy Two Year Anniversary to us!! ❤️ The last two years have been packed with adventure and love and we wouldn't change a thing...looking forward to many more to come!!
