We had a looong afternoon/night of VBS decorating, but took a little break to play on the swings and listen to some live music across the street. #imexhausted . . . . . . #minivanmom #instantpotlove #farmerswife #momof4 #jesussavesbro #fitmom #minnesotamom #momlife #minivanlife #budgetmom #mumof4 #mumlife #backyardchickens #beancounter #farmfamily #accountantlife #familyof6 #3boys1girl #budgetmum #mummysboys
There’s no one else I’d rather play #minivan Tetris with to take our crew on another adventure. We’ve always lived by the motto, “where there’s a will there’s a way, packing for #roadtrips is no exception ❤️⛰🏕 #graceandgrit #momof4 #truelove #14yearsstrong #bigfam
It’s a rare occurrence this mama has one on one time with her son. We’ve done all things he loves. He’s growing and changing so fast. I can’t wait to see the man he becomes. . . . . . . #momlife #momof4 #fitmom #momofspecialneeds #cerebralpalsy #autism #multiplesclerosis #fibromyalgia #autismawareness #autismboy
Brokenness...so many people who share their lives as openly as I do can almost make an “idol” out of being broken. I tell my story in the hopes that it will show someone else that they’re not alone and that they can make it too, BUT I am NOT broken anymore!! . I recently listened to a message from @christinecaine about the crushing that occurs in life and how you can ALLOW that crushing to be like the olives being crushed. What comes out of the olives being crushed?? Oil. What comes from grapes being crushed? Wine. . In April of 2017 I purposed in my heart that I was going to ALLOW that crushing. To allow God to bring “oil” and “wine” from it. I wanted that, ultimately, healing oil from the Father to literally seep into every crack, every broken part of my life so that one day I could teach others how to walk through those hard crushing times and let that wine and oil come forth out of it. . My sole purpose is to allow God to use my life to bring glory to Himself and to heal and restore peoples lives. I’m not the most gifted person on the planet, but I’m a willing vessel and that’s all God is asking for. Are you gonna be the willing vessel that He’s looking for too? Are you gonna allow Him to make something way more beautiful out of your life than what you thought possible? Trusting Him and doing what He’s asking of you is the hardest and most rewarding thing ever!
Someone was super happy to be with mommy again after almost a week away!! Camp was fun but glad to have everyone together again!! #lularoe4lilbeans #becauseoflularoe #momof4

It’s late. I work at 6:30 am. I worked all day. It’s raining. I’m tired. There is clothes in the dryer that can be folded. I need to catch up on shows. All just the beginning of excuses I could of made for myself tonight. But I didn’t. I got my sneakers on and I just went. Because I owe it to myself. I owe it to my family. And because I know if I don’t It will never get easier. It was hard to breath. I’m soaked. I’m sore. And I’m STOKED 🤸🏻‍♀️ I’m one day closer to running this route without being out of breath. I did this for you too .... because if I can restart so can you!! 💆🏼‍♀️💜 #autoimmunewarrior #fitmom #momof4

Easy recipes was all I was looking for on Pinterest. Thank goodness I came across this Sweet & Sour Meatballs thanks to @lillunakristyn recipe. ....It was fantastic!!!

A little time progression! Same suit, worn 12 years later! A Facebook memory today prompted me to take a new photo! The photo on the far left was Summer of 2006 right after moving to Florida, I had two kids then and this was taken in my screened in lanai area before headed to my pool to soak up the glorious sun!! Middle photo was 9 years later, here in Bend, July 2015, same suit, I had two more kids since the first photo and I was huge into crossfit, my abs were on point!! I sure do miss throwing around those weights and that 8 pack!!!😂 The last photo far right, taken this morning. Hard to believe it's been 12 years since the first photo, same suit....I'm 47 now and although, my body fat is no longer 12% and you can't see much for abs these days, (except a 4 and a half pack), 😂 but body love is so important!! I am proud to accept who I am today, where I am....naturally!! Aging gracefully and imperfectly!!! I think we need to see more of this!! I've got cellulite, boob fat and a roll or two add some laugh lines and a worry line or two.....thats life baby!!! Embrace it!!! Don't beat yourself up with not looking like fake images or unrealistic expectations....false images, airbrushed images and fake imagery will always leave you falling short and feeling bad because you don't look like that!! Guess what?!! It's not real!!! Throw away that bullshit and accept you....gloriously beautiful, perfectly imperfect and exactly who you are!!! Love yourself!!!!! . . . . . . 💜XOXO💜 P.S. Far left oldest photo I'm 135lbs, middle picture 150lbs and far right also 150lbs! . . . . . #momlife #summertime #selflove #mombosslife #inbend #antiaging #momof4 #fitover47 #fitness #bossbabe #bendor #bendbuilt #pnw #thebendlife #bendmoms #summervibes #backyardbend #loveyourself #swimsuit #pnwlife #oregon
So the coolest thing happen to be today. I literally spent all day shopping. I found this shirt I wanted and the sales girl looks at me and gives me "the look". You know the one... Sizing you up and stuff. Seriously guys she looks at me and says "oh that's a plus size shirt, you would never fit that. You would need a medium and it doesn't come in that size". I could have tripped over my own jaw!! Never in my life has a sales girl said I couldn't buy something because I was too small! Needles to say I might be moving to a small sooner than I thought because the shirt in the pic is a medium and it's kinda long! **happy dancing the rest of the day!
Pretty Girls Drink Tea and no meat or Seafood! Had a good time at @thevillagemarketatl Vegan food and Black own business all over the place. Im in love with this lifestyle!!! #prettygirltea #vegetarian #atlnightlife #momof4 #weightlossjourney

The rain cleared. The temps dropped to a comfortable level. And we NEEDED to stretch our legs!! . So after dinner walk it was! Funny...we used the stroller for 90% of the 2.5mi, but she wanted to “walk” the last little bit!😜🤣 Guess walking 10ft counts!! - - - - #familywalks #afterdinnerwalk #stretchingmylegs #shewantedtowalk #momlife #momof4 #busymomof4 #fitmama #fitmomof4
Spent the morning enjoying the beautiful weather on my porch while catching up on some training videos on new products launching in 2 weeks and spent the afternoon at the pool soaking up the sun with my kiddos. Couldn’t ask for a better Saturday! ❤️
🌻”How do you go so many places with ALL of your boys?” . I am asked this question at least once a day between IG and Facebook. . So here is my answer: I like to go places. I have never been able to sit still (even before kids-ask Matt-it has always driven him nuts) . I feel like it’s important that my boys are CAPABLE of being in public (this is obviously a work in progress 🙃) . I think it is important that my boys understand that sometimes they have to go places for ME...and sometimes we have to go places for their brothers. This is real life. Every time you leave the house it’s not always fun! . Let’s be perfectly clear. It is NOT enjoyable to go to the OBGYN with 4 boys 🙋‍♀️ and I don’t recommend bra shopping with 4 helpers either. The grocery and Costco are (obviously) not ideal...but that’s our reality-and these 4 don’t know any different. . AND one day I will be able to run all my errands on my own, I won’t get hit with a damn little Kroger cart every time I stop at the meat counter...I will be the one telling the exhausted, frazzled mom of 4: “time will fly by and one day you will be shopping all by yourself” BUT until that day...you will find me running all over town with this crazy crew. Throwing candy at them and begging them to keep their hands to themselves 🙃 . . . . . #momof4 #momofboys #momof4boys #boymom #sunflowers #summeradventures #shoppingwithmommy #growuptoofast

I’m sure anyone who knows our family will be SHOCKED to learn that this is the FIRST TIME we have eaten here! As a rare lifelong Nashvillian raising 3 Congolese children who LOVE SPICY FOOD, I am slightly mortified by this truth. But we are here now and we are SO EXCITED!!!! We all ordered the Mild (which made my nose run and I may or may not have broken out into a sweat 😂) except Jesse who went with HOT - and he said it wasn’t hot enough. (He wants to try XXXHOT next time. 🙄🔥) One of the employees gave him a high five for finishing every bite. ✋🏽Despite not being a huge fan of spicy foods myself, I must admit, @princeshotchicken_nashville was outstanding and we can’t wait to go back! #princeshotchicken #hotchicken #winnerwinnerchickendinner #nashville #nashvilleeats #momlife #boymom #momofboys #momof4 #adoption #adoptionisawesome #raisinggiants
Hit up the hotel gym to finish up week 1 with my group. Headed back up to the room and couldn’t get the key to work. Apparently, it was enough time for Colby to snuggle up to Charlie with a book and announce: “And that’s the end of chapter 17, Char!” My mama heart was beaming until Luke ratted them out and said they were wrestling the whole time. 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ #momlife #boymom #momof4 #crazyhouse #hotelliving #legday #liiftforlife

To the cutie in Target trying to hit on me, I apologize for making it awkward whenever I stared at you like I was confused, then responding “hay is for horses!”, and topping it all of by choking on my own mucus at my joke! He was swooned by my mini van and high tailed it out of there😘 Your girl still got it *winks with both eyes* #foreveralone #awkward #momlife #sarcasm #sick #badatflirting #singlemom #sorry #ohwell #texasgirl #nofilter #momof4

Mommin’ ain’t easy! Remember, give grace to yourself. I’ve been asked before how I keep my house so clean with 4 kids and a husband who’s always traveling. I’ve heard comments like “You make it (being a mom of 4) look so easy.” I am NOT gloating! I am by no means a perfect momma. I DO lose my patience more than once a day and yell like a crazy person, to tell them to stop yelling🙈. That makes so much sense!😆 I’m thankful for neighbors who just act like they’ve never heard me😂. I have learned and changed up my strategies a gazillion times thru these 9 years of parenting. I’m going to tell you my two biggest secrets that could save your life, your time and your sanity. DO NOT OVER COMMIT YOURSELF! Just stop it. You can’t attend every single party, or girls night, or field trip. And guess what...the world won’t end. Your kid will still love you. And your friends will still love you. If you don’t feel like going out, then don’t do it. It’s okay to just stay home and stay in your comfy clothes🙋‍♀️. Second thing, DELEGATE DELEGATE DELEGATE!!! You know why my house stays semi-clean most of the time? Because I have 4 kids!!! (And also because I have a Roomba😜.) They vacuum, they clean bathrooms, they make beds, they wash dishes and put them away, they take out the trash, they do their laundry, they pick up dog 💩 . And guess what, there’s still plenty of time for them to be kids too, instead of spoiled brats. Not that they don’t ever act like spoiled brats😬. You get what I’m saying tho. Be a family! Family helps one another run a household. And if your kid doesn’t vacuum as good as you would, or make their bed ever so perfectly, or fold their clothes correctly and put them away nice and neat...so what! Does it really matter? The point is, they’re learning life skills, how to be responsible, and taking the load off of you. They’ll perfect all of those things along the way. So let go momma’s! It will feel so good!😘 .

How often do we allow the fear of failure to paralyze us from taking the first step to making a decision that could change our lives? I know a little over a year ago I was afraid of failure. I chickened out of my first challenge group. But when I got my package I decided to give it a shot anyway. I had to dig deep though, I had to dig past my own self doubt, unbelief & fear that I couldn’t actually do it. And boy am I glad that I did! I would be missing out on a whole new world of opportunity if I hadn’t! Life is all about choices every single day. I hear ppl say all the time that life is short enjoy it. Does that mean eat the Chinese take out instead of a salad & enjoy the taste instead of enjoying how you feel afterwards? Or enjoying sleeping late instead of enjoying the endorphins from getting up early for a workout? Which part of life are we choosing to enjoy? For me I want to enjoy being a grandparent one day & not being stuck on a couch because I chose the enjoyment of taste & sleep over energy & the bodies naturally produced feel good hormones. When are you going to start making the right choice? One that will change your life? Life is too short! And your kids are following your example. It’s never too late to change!
