Sevenly – People Matter

When Sevenly first reached out to me to see if I’d like to collaborate with them, I researched what they stood for just like I do with every company that I work with. I want to make sure we mesh; that we vibe; that…

JJ Cole Bundleme

This past weekend, we went to a Christmas tree farm! Too early? Maybe for some…but we don’t actually go to get a tree. We go just to get in the Christmas spirit! Who doesn’t like to be around hundreds of trees?! And…

It’s no surprise that I LOVE children’s clothing, toys, and cute little accessories you can adorn your children with ha! I figured I’d put together a few lists for you throughout November, and throw out a few codes for you to use…

Plant Based Menu with Bob’s Red Mill

For me, Christmas is here. Like seriously. We’re putting our Christmas decorations up this Friday night. I have it scheduled in mine and Kevin’s synced calendar. It’s happening. If it’s warm, we may just have to blast the AC so we…

Tomorrow Sleep

Do you like getting that luxury hotel sleep? If you say no, I’m not going to believe you, so the only answer is “yes!” Well, my husband and I got to collaborate with Tomorrow Sleep, and have been using their sleep system over the…

Why Beautycounter?

Why Beautycounter?Why did I start selling something? I didn’t have to. It’s not like I applied for a job, and sent in my resume. Why in the world would anyone join a direct sales company? It’s scammy. It’s fake. It…

The Price of Your Motherhood

What were you like before you had a child or started trying to get pregnant? I can distinctly remember being fun, flirty, and outgoing. I didn’t know what anxiety was like. My mom had told me she had struggled with anxiety some, and I…

Equipping and Scattering

There are two things that have truly allowed me to look past my circumstances that I’m going through right now and hold on to any sense of hope right now. One is our little puppy Zoe. I know I sound like a crazy cat lady, but it’s amazing what an animal can do for your life. It’s a little ball of therapy every time she comes to lay on my lap on her back just wanting to be cuddled and have her tummy scratched. She just needs to be touching you. Just your toe. (She’s a…

I Doubt It

The Lord replied: “Look, and be amazed! You will be astounded at what I am about to do! For I am going to do something in your own lifetime that you will have to see to believe.” Habakkuk 1:5There are so many doubts in our lives that crowd out any sort of hope. Especially us women as believers! I do it almost every day. I doubted myself able to do something today! Whether I can actually accomplish it is yet to be seen, but before I even set out to do it, I told myself I could not possibly…

If…Then…?

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. 3 Think of all the hostility he…

14″Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” Philippians 2:14-15I remember road trips when I was younger in my mom’s minivan. That green plymouth was such a space of comfort in my younger years. It was a safe haven. Good memories, comfortable seats, great company, and the cassette player always had some kind of kiddie Christian tunes pumping out of the speakers. The one song that I particularly remember, and…

Not Drowning

17 “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. 18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. 19 They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. 20 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.” 2 Samuel 22:17-20This has always been one of my favorite passages in the Bible. It has brought me through some of the toughest places in my life. I’ve…

Snow Day Investment

It’s going to sound weird, but a snow day is something I’ve actually been praying for! For the world to stop…just one day. Take a chill pill. Not worry about numbers being hit and dollars being made. We get so caught up in making checks balance and putting in overtime so that we can rise up in our jobs and look great to our bosses, be told “well done,” pay the bills, feed our extravagant lifestyles. Lately, I can’t do that. The pressure the world puts on us to perform is so overwhelming that it feels…

Whole30…ish…

If you don’t know what the Whole30 challenge is, check out the link. Basically, you only eat whole foods for 30 days. That is, you eat meat, veggies, and healthy fats. No flour, dairy, legumes, sugar, alcohol, etc. Kevin and I have decided to give this a go, because we figured there’s nothing to lose (except for that ever loving delicious dark chocolate in the fridge).We made a pact this past weekend to start ASAP. The only thing that we didn’t want to do was waste money. That defeats any purpose to me. Why waste items…

“Never say never.” That’s what we’re told, right? Growing up your parents always say that when you tell them, “I’m never going to be as mean as you and ground my kids!” Or something to the like. Well, I never thought I’d have a problem having children. I didn’t really even know what that was until we started trying to have little one of our own.I thought I could have the world on my time. It’s my life so my rules, right? Absolutely wrong! The hard part for me is that I didn…
