🕯Have you affirm yourself or your children today?
Hey mama, affirmations are important and these essential oils can support emotions too. They are also safe to be used on children. Even toddlers have preference on the essential oils they like.
My eldest son is an emotional child, when he was younger, he is attracted to Joy. If they like it, they will be attracted to it. If they don’t, they’ll push it away. That’s how you can let your child choose the oil to use. Now his favourite is Valor - representing courage and brave.
❓What is your choice of oil and affirmation today?
Today our baby turned four months old! Honestly, I have no idea how these months passed by so fast. This has by far been such a rewarding journey. 🥰
As a new mom I saw sides of me that I didn’t know existed. Nights have passed where I didnt sleep a wink 💤, but would still have the energy to run around the next day. I am learning patience...oh, how I am learning to have patience. But...at the end of the day its all worth it!! His smile makes all my aches and pains vanish. My pride and joy, my purest form of love is you. 🐥
P.S. lets pretend my pants aren’t long and I tried the Kendall trend 😂.

First game back and these boys came out with a W! I thought it was pretty cool what some staff members observed of the boys. They said the boys were disciplined and really played together as a team💜🏀
Win or loose they do it together but this weekend,their first weekend back on the court after nearly 3 months off they WON!! And they did so with grace,something I take pride in witnessing. Ky got MVP, super proud of this kid. #456Family#Brotherhood#SoThankfulToBeBack
Quick story about this dress. I ordered it last year to wear for Easter. When it arrived I didn’t think about trying it on because it was my normal size so I forgot about it. Then, the night before Easter at 10pm I tried it on... and I lost it 😞I called my sister crying because it didn’t fit and I had nothing else to wear (closet full but you get the point).
Sure I could have sent it back. But it was so cute (and had pockets😍), so I decided it was gonna be my goal dress!! Hard work has been paying off because I put it on and buttoned it without breaking a sweat or my fingers turning red!🤩🤩
Here’s the thing....
Being overweight is hard.
Being uncomfortable in your own body is hard.
Looking into fitting room mirrors is hard.
Working out is hard.
So no to treats is hard.
Early morning workouts are hard.
Late night workouts are hard.
Doing it all with a full life (kids, work, school, etc) is hard.
Consistency is hard.
ITS ALL HARD👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
It hard to not button those pants that fit you last year. It’s hard to not play with your kids because you can’t keep up. It’s hard watching the scale not move in the direction you want. It’s hard taking a photo of just your kids instead of getting in there too. It’s hard sticking to your meal plan while feeling pressured when going out. It’s hard to workout with kids running around. It’s hard to eat healthy when others around you aren’t.
We tend to choose the easy path. The one with less work. But why? What do you actually benefit and learn from that? CHOOSE THE HARD, PUSH THROUGH THE HARD. That’s where you gain the confidence, the pride and joy, the knowledge, and the fulfillment out of what you’re doing! 💞 Still enrolling for my 80 Day Summer Slay fitness + nutrition group that starts on June 8th!!

I was showing my mum the snotty boss from @snottynosesaustralia
And she told me that my dad used to put his mouth over our noses and suck out the snot 😳🤮 how far we’ve come hey?
I love my children, but no way am I sucking anyones boogies!
The snotty boss is easy, quiet and very gentle on little noses.
Xavier had a bit of congestion and I noticed he kept pulling off when feeding and fussing so I did some investigating. Did you know newborns breathe exclusively through their noses unless they have a stuffy nose in which case they’d breathe through their mouth? Obviously making it harder for them to feed 🤯
I’m so glad I’ve got this handy little easy to use, easy to clean and baby friendly gadget now that winter has well and truely hit!
Use GABRIELLE15 for a discount!
Which one do you think we look the silliest - 1, 2, or 3? Just please don’t say 4 because that’s supposed to be a nice photo 🤪😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love going out exploring and taking photos like these, they make some of the best memories. And these are the days I want to remember, definitely not the days when we fight, or the days he just annoys me because he won’t stop talking, or when I am grumpy and am mean to him when he has done nothing wrong (and boy do I feel guilty for that). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But apologising for our bad behaviour and admitting when we behaved badly is something I make sure to do, along with lots of cuddles and talking about how we feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you handle those grumpy moments and arguments with your kids??

I got one yayy!! 知る人ぞ知るこのトートバッグ♡
A new day. A new week. A brand new month. ✨
When we decided to pack up our lives and move to TX, 8 months ago, I was hesitant because we would be so far from most of our family. And promised myself we’d still make the most of our time away. That we would make it work.
Well, things haven’t gone as planned. At all.
But each day, I’m grateful for our family of three and this adventure we are on. Even though my heart aches to be close to our loved ones and for life to make sense again.
I am finding myself needing to decide each day, over and over to be my best self each day. Some days I’m better than others - it’s just the truth.
Today though, is a hat trick of days because it’s June 1, on a Monday.
This day is the perfect day to be Day 1, to start fresh and strong. A new month of possibilities and so much life to look forward to.
We live an hour from the beach, and had the chance to explore it a couple of weekends ago, after months of staying home. It was a breath of fresh air and hope. And I look forward to many more family beach days in the near future. Because, we’re making the best of it, a day at a time.
A little late for these, but hey it kinda goes with the theme of the year...unpredictable.
I love seeing how they grow each year to fill out these shirts. But it also makes me sad... they are growing so big and so fast. It seems like yesterday, our weeks were packed with play dates at the park with a Chick Fil A lunch date afterwards. Those were some of my favorite days.
Today, Cal enters middle school and Chase enters high school. Why today? Because unfortunately they "get to do" some middle and high school classes to get ahead. I know I should be happy because Cal scored very well in math so he gets to be a part of an advanced math program and Chase is fulfilling an online class requirement needed to graduate (PE), BUT...I don't feel like we have caught our breath yet from the last quarter.
Positive thoughts though...at least it is just one class each.
Are your little ones having to take summer courses?
Homeschooling science class... dry ice... who knew this could hold his attention for over an hour! And not just finely the golden doodle but Zane too! #dryice#experiment#science#homeschooling #boymomlife… https://www.instagram.com/p/CAyEw2cp19g/?igshid=gmkn21ghtek5 …

FACT: It’s a great day to be a #Plunderstylist
Confession: I’m a night Owl! However, on the morning of our catalog releases, my body magically hops out of the bed like a kid on Christmas morning and I’m working my BIZ with the early birds (literally their whistling while I work @5:45). But if I’m REALLY honest, I can’t call it work, cause I freaking love EVERYTHING about this gig, the FREE jewelry is icing on the cake! Do you need some FREE jewels in your life?
