The city that never sleeps is not just NYC... New Orleans is crazy!!!
Love that he asked me to take pics with him. What a relaxing night. Watching the stars with a drink in hand. #blessedmom
Today was the first day in over a week Ive put on REAL clothes!
Im not gonna lie, its been rough lately. Its been hard getting up everyday, to care for sick little ones this past week, and dealing with all the tantrums and fights, because everyone has "cabin fever". I may have shed a few tears myself at times. Im physically and emotionally exhausted!
Tonight I am reminding myself though, these sleepless nights, early mornings, clingy babies, days and days stuck at home, wont last forever. And one day... I will wish for it all over again. ❤

Wow. Nå vokser jentene raskt. Er fortsatt bare i uke 25 og bare på denne uka føler jeg at jeg har blitt så mye større! Det er tungt for kroppen, og ganske slitsomt etter å ha gått så mye vi har gjort denne ferien. Har heldigvis en mann som er SÅ flink og omtenksom. Passer så godt på meg, og er så flink med Liam. Herjer med han, løfter han rundt og leker så mye med han. Noen ganger føler jeg meg så hjelpesløs og som en dårlig mamma som ikke har like mye energi, en sliten og tung kropp som ikke fungerer på samme måte som før jeg ble gravid. Men så må jeg ta meg litt sammen og tenke at jeg faktisk bærer på TO mennesker inni der, to jenter som skal bli del av vår familie, noe vi alle ser veldig fram til. Og det er litt av en jobb bare det. Men gleder meg til å få tilbake kroppen slik at jeg kan herje litt med Liam igjen på samme måte! Han får mye kos av mamma da iallfall hehe🌸

Let’s talk about PMS! Not what you’re probably thinking! I’m talking about “poor me syndrome” or “pity me syndrome”. Unfortunately, with today’s technology and social media it’s easy to fall in to the trap of comparison. Comparing ourselves to everyone else’s highlight reel. Or even in conversations with people, everyone talks about their wins and successes.
It’s easy to get down on yourself when you sit back and see other people’s lives play out and feel like you can’t ever “catch a break” or so-and-so always manages to luck out.
When you start to feel that way (like nothing ever goes right for you and you can’t ever get ahead) stop and think about why you feel that way. Think about what you have, that no one else has. Think about the fact that you have no idea what is going on behind the scenes of other people’s lives.
We weren’t put here, in this exact moment, to compare our lives to those around us. Comparison is definitely the thief of joy. Your job is to play the hand you were dealt, because it was only dealt to you. We are to trust in his timing that everything WILL work out when it’s supposed to, because it will. We may not be able to see it now, or tomorrow, but eventually we will see why we were given this path. We just have to keep the faith.
She makes me feel like the luckiest mom ever. She has the sweetest heart and brings joy to everyone she meets. 💗💗 She is truly a miracle! #preemie #blessedmom
What a fun filled weekend of Karate🙌 l'm so proud of him he worked so hard! It was great to get to watch him learning new techniques and growing at the Seminars.

. ⛪💓 Thank you for an amazing experience First Baptist Umatilla! I have beautiful children who made the choice on their own to walk with Christ in their life. I have good children, like really good children I often say they are better humans than me 😂. I love these mini men and I pray for them every day to continue to always do their best, be who they are, and live life with authenticity. 💓

“Whatever is going to to give you more time, more space, more freedom to find your center...say YES, PLEASE to that!”
Progress pictures are never easy to share, but I’m happy to push past that fear to inspire others. The picture on the left was from only 3 months ago…I was full of negative self-talk and in denial about having PPD. The picture on the right was taken today…I am confident and strong; I choose happiness and joy every single day.
Initially, I started my journey to shed the baby weight, but it has been more than a physical transformation; my emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being has improved drastically. I let go of all negative emotions that did not serve me and instead surrounded myself with positivity by connecting with others who had goals to inspire and empower others…my tribe!
Are you ready to take responsibility for your own life and say “YES, PLEASE!” to make it happen? Drop a 💪🏽 in the comments if you are ready to start YOUR journey! We’re a pretty fun bunch 😉💗
Picture perfect Sunday spent relaxing and playing with the fam! ❤️ how cute is Caiden with his cousins?! 😍
I’m absolutely loving this new workout schedule. Only 4 days a week which means 3 rest days! The weekends are completely off and the meal plan includes “treat days” so I don’t have to feel guilty about eating some ice cream! 🍦
Super excited to kick off week 2 tomorrow! This program is 8 weeks long and every workout is different! Stay tuned to my story tomorrow to check out some workout samples!
Let’s play a game. Take stock, right this second, of 3 things you’re grateful for. Feel free to elaborate, or keep it super simple. I’m staying simple, because I think this list speaks for itself: I say @amazon
Prime, air conditioning, and @queereye.
It doesn’t matter how big or little, but share your list in the comments below. -Beth ❤️❤️❤️ #30daysofsc #momlifecrisis
I rolled over during my nap today to find this beautiful purple flower laying next to my pillow. Bella came in later to tell me that it was from her because she knew I was “sick” and loved flowers 💕 Funny story - days before SHE was born, Isaiah brought me red roses and told me, “everything will be ok.” 😭❤️ Love my sweet babies!!! //// I am 33 weeks today and have four follow-up appointments to monitor me and the twins next week. All is stable for now. THANK YOU for being here with me XO. — more in my stories ////
Perks of being admitted to labor and delivery last night for my first ever blood transfusion of my liiiiife 😳❤️👍🏻..... pellet ice on demand!!!!! And pellet ice in my giant thermal mug TO GO!!!!!! #allthebeautifulpellets
😍🤣💃🏼🎉 I’m sure they will bill my insurance company like $2852 for it (kidding), but heyyyyy silver lining!?!
It feels like when the Elves are leaving Middle Earth and passing through the woods with their lanterns in hand into the next chapter; the next world. It’s the end of an age 🌿
I have spent my whole life on these waters. I learned to ski behind my grandpa’s boat here — heaps of hours spent tubing, laughing, soaking up the sunshine and breathing in those watery fumes mingled with the cottonwood and clary sage wafting through the air. Round and round again; each lap silently counting down to the last time... 💔
I will forever remember what it was like to be pulled around this lake with my cousins, friends, family. The countless bags of potato chips and cans of strawberry cream soda from Aldi; back when we didn’t know or care about GMO’s or the effects of red dye 40 😂 There was never enough SPF to save us as we fell into bed night after night at “the club” with our lake hair and ski-vest sunburns. We didn’t upload, Snapchat, hashtag, insta-ANYTHING 🙌🏻
We were just downloading the memories of a lifetime straight to our hearts 💕 This is the last summer. My grandpa put his arm around me and told me to tell the twins when they get older that he DID take them for a ride on the boat 😭❤️ My eyes may have welled up with tears behind my aviators more than once on this day. All that is given is gift.
It’s all too much now for my grandpa and the boat is being sold. Oh time. You dirty thief. I want it all back while at the same time am wishing it all forward, because life is too good to miss, as the wind of Lake Willy kisses our faces “hello” and “goodbye” one more time ❤️
