::Save Yourself:: Life gets hard. Things happen. You will survive. Don’t give up. No one is going to save you. You have to work through it girlfriend and pray more now than ever. What happens when you survive the hurt and hard times? You grow up. How do you get to that point? Try making small lists. Lists that will help you feel accomplished and good about yourself. Work everyday to see a little progress. One day you’ll look back on this and say wow I made it! Don’t give up-grow up and save yourself!!! . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments
::In the Way:: You are the only thing getting in your way. Your fears. Your thoughts. Your excuses. Only way past it, is to SNAP OUT of it! Literally snap your fingers and say get out of the way! Recently I watched a video from the amazing @msrachelhollis . Her tip to stop giving power to opinions that don’t matter was to do something PHYSICAL to reset your brain and way of thinking. I LOVE that idea! Try it out for me girlie and see what is does for you. Get out of your own way!!!! . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments
::Rain Rain:: “Mommy you’re silly and this rain is funny”-Liam Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make you smile. Seeing my little one light up over pushing buttons in the car and rubbing in the rain makes my day! This is one of those pictures that I had to ignore my double chin and just love this moment that was captured. No one but me probably cares about that, but it’s something I feel like a lot of mamas go through. Your babies love YOU mama-the one that kisses them when they fall, the one who reads to them at night, the one who makes the silliest faces while grocery shopping no matter who is watching. You mama are beautiful to them just they way you are. Don’t let a little “rain” get in the way of that. Remember the joy, love and laughter because you deserve it but so do they!!! . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments
::Happy Anni:: 4 years have come and gone since one of the absolute BEST days of my life. On that we celebrate with all of our loved ones, family and friends. In front of all of them we pledge to God these beautiful words... For better or worse For richer or for poorer In sickness and in health To love and to cherish Till death is do part I cry thinking about that moment and the beauty of what it means to be married. The good times and the bad are worth it all. Cannot wait to celebrate with you William!!! Thanks to everyone who has reached out today to send your love to us!!! Love reminiscing with you!!! . . . #holdyourmoments #marriagegoals #hubbylove #hubbyandwifey #justgotspignerd
::Day 2 Done:: Day 2 of this conference was a blast and done for the day! Now to rest up before eating at one of the best bbq places in town. Gimme all the yummies-I’m all about eating balanced meals, but don’t think I’m not eating the fun stuff too. Combating all of that with major water intake and hoping to squeeze in a little exercise before we leave too. Any guesses on where we are headed tonight?!?
::Ready:: Coffee in hand and I’m ready to get my learn on! Once a learner, always a learner. I love getting to learn from other teachers-ones that have paved the way. At a tech conference for the week and just waiting to hear new ways to integrate technology in the classroom. Enjoying the beautiful weather in between sessions too! This just may be my favorite time of year!!!
::Easy Dinner:: This salad is giving me life after a long day. Wishing I was going to be home this week to enjoy more of it. Super easy-these are frozen chicken tenders 😳 roasted Brussels sprouts and a salad mix from a bag 💁🏻‍♀️ topped it off with a little bit of Tessemae's avocado ranch (ohmywordslapyourmamagood). It was a Devine dinner and mostly good for you! . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments
::DST:: Any other mamas out there have a love hate relationship with the whole time change thing?! This year was better than the last but it’s also early in the day 😂 Lots to do so throwing on my new favorite ball cap and handling business. Two big trips this week to pack for and quality time with my boys. Thankful for the Daylight savings time for those reasons alone. Prayers to all my mamas who are dealing with young ones today and thrown off schedules. This too shall pass!!! You’ve got this #mommin thing-just keep moving today and it will work itself out! . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments #daylightsavings

::Artwork:: How unreal is this sunrise this morning?! Always amazed by God’s masterpieces-this is one of many!!! Remember you are one too girlfriend💁🏻‍♀️ This is the month you become captivated with the artwork you are. Every little decision and choice you make is a brush stroke God planned for. He’s working in you to lean into him, serve him, live his plan out for him. Say it with me now... I am a a beautiful masterpiece. God is the artist and I am his artwork. He knows where the next brush stroke will go. I will trust in his creativity. I am a beautiful masterpiece. . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments #godisgoodallthetime
::T-Rexin:: Our little T-Rex had a rawrin’ good time tonight!!! He thought he was such a big boy the whole time we were out and about. He used his manners, got to pet a dog and even scored a kush ball at one super thoughtful house. Halloween 2018 was a hit! Daddy is already telling us we have to plan our outfits for next year 😂 . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising #tiuteacher #tiumommy #lifewithatoddler #thinkgolden #boymama #teachermom #teachertribe #teacherlife🍎 #elementaryteacher #candidchildhood #mommymoments #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #workingmama #workingmommy #mamahoodinsquares #motherhoodismagic #holdyourmoments #happyhalloween2018
