Hey friends! Guess what?! The podie fam has started a blog + has some news! Nope, not pregnant πŸ˜œπŸ‘πŸΌ but I AM starting the works for an etsy shop and I'd love to share my first two designs with you. If you're interested click the link in my bio or visit @shopmomlifeco πŸ’› (Facebook fam: I'll update my status!)
Thank God for little boys πŸ’› #podiebros
Today's sun was the perfect refresher after a week of sickness, bad news, hurt hearts + schedule changing. It's been physically exhausting but also emotionally, which often I find is so much more draining. Stress is an awful thing + sometimes all we need is a day in the sun β˜€οΈ to brighten our spirits and clear our minds. 🌲 🌲 🌲 Today I'm thanking god for family, friends that matter + sunny days in Washington where they are far and few between these days.
Truthfully, I never intend to match everyone's outfits but once I get someone dressed the color pallet just continues until we're all wearing a version of the same outfit and I'm like ALLRIGHTYYY then. πŸ˜‚ #podiebros
Okay--- I am the most indecisive person ever. From my coffee, to my outfit, to what to make for dinner I literally can never make up my mind. I honestly have to weigh out every option in my mind, pros+cons. A part of me knows it's my anxiety, but a part of me knows I don't want to let myself make any more mistakes in life than I already do. ( hashtag: human) but tonight as I work in the dark on my little project I have been thinking up for months + months I'm telling myself to take my own advice dang it. Take the risk, go with your heart, do what you enjoy + forget the rest! The entire purpose of life is to LOVE + to LEARN. Why deny myself one of those valuable lessons in fear of a little failure?  Dream big ☁️ Love hard πŸ’›
Running on zero hours of sleep + emotional exhaustion from the last week but today Krew man and I snuck away while Dash was napping at home to go get my mom something for her birthday. We pulled into the grocery store parking lot and I asked Krew " okay dude what is grandma favorite thing we need to get something for her" and without hesitation he said "well, I think I am one of grandmas favorite things-- so maybe we should just give her me for her birthday, she will love it!" πŸ˜‚ que: laughter tears! I love this sweet boy of mine and the fact that he's smarter, happier, wiser than me at his young 5 years of age. He gives me all the comfort and perspective in the world 🌎 He is so special and I am so grateful god put him into our family. #krewhudson β€’File under: my favorite things ever.
Had the honor of spending my great-grandmas last hours with her in the home of my grandparents, surrounded by her daughters and loved ones. She lived a full life and lived to see 5 generations πŸ’› she died in peace and we will miss her so much. I feel so blessed to have been raised by a mother who taught me how beautiful the circle of life is, to not fear death and to serve others in their time of need. We will see you in heaven Neener, Rest In Peace πŸ˜‡
Sooo I made a little mid day cheese plate with all the intention to share with Dylan, and kind of went to hard on the snack game and left him mayybeee 3 bites. 😳 I'm not proud. BUT I have been eating so healthy lately and denying all my cravings for an afternoon coffee + late night cereal so I'm gonna go ahead + let this one go. This cranberry-jalapeΓ±o jelly // goat cheese duo was worth every bite. πŸ‡ πŸ§€ 🍎  SO GOOD. #sorrybabe #illbuymore #cheeseplate
"Always tryin' to steal my kisses from you "🎢 pretty much my #momlife motto πŸ’πŸΌ #gimmedemcheeksboy #dashmccoy
Woke up to snow again 😩 So were making the best of a Monday morning with some motivation to get this mama a gym membership. Would you do me a favor? If you're a Mom would you comment and tell me if you work out at home or a gym and how often? Since I've had Dash I have gone through a roller coaster of sizes and phases of exercising + I want to get back into shape. Help a sister out give me ALL the tips?! #noexcuses
Love this family of mine with all my heart! Today at lunch with a girlfriend + her boys Krew asked me if I had a "more fun" life before I had kids because "being a mom is hard work huh!" And that couldn't be more false--- my life is a thousand times over MORE FUN + fulfilled with these guys listening to the trolls soundtrack 🎢 πŸŒˆπŸŒ³πŸ’› and  stopping for some McDonalds to make their little hearts happy. #familyiseverything #tiredandhappy
I hope I always remember how in style it was to wear a squirrel tail on top of your beanie + pajamas as clothes cuz' it's kinda my favorite thing ever. πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ #stylin
