It's Dylans's birthday today! So naturally Krew and I did our best to whip up something spectacular for him during quiet time. I wish I could blame the 5 year old for the catastrophe of a frosting job this is but--- the fault is alllll miiinneeee. πŸ˜‚ we YouTube'd how to frost a cake, AFTER the fact. Sooo for future cakes, we got it! Leave it to a kid to tell you how amazing he thinks it is + how cool you are while the cake is shredding + the frosting is falling off the side of the cake. #bestsouschefever Also, there's a blog post in my bio: 5 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈things we love about our guy. Happy Birthday Babe!
Trying on spring 🌱// summer β˜€οΈ wear in hopes it motivates this moody weather to brighten up real soon. I mean, winter you were cool and all but our time together is up. Step asideeee babe. #ineedareasontowearthishat #ilikeyourdress #thanksithaspockets!!
β€’You: being the best big brother always looking out for dash, picking out your own clothes, getting nervous to start Kindergarten, watching people play with legos on YouTube (hashtag:starwarsnerd) listening to the trolls soundtrack on repeat, impressing me with your vocabulary and manners daily + being my best buddy ever. ------------------------------------------------------
β€’Me: staying up late working on etsy designs, forgetting kindergarten round up---then crying my eyes out at the thought of sending you to school in the fall, cutting my hair shorter + shorter, working out regularly, drinking more coffee 😳, and loving you boys more than anything in the world. πŸ’› #projectyouandme #krewhudson
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.
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

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
