Essential Oils I use every day

Hey y'all!  I'm happy to be starting a new series all about Essential Oils!  I've been using them on the regular for over a year now.  I had a few oils prior to that and a small diffuser, but I really didn't know anything about them and I just basically used them for smells I liked.  Once I knew that I wanted to start using them more extensively, I signed up for Young Living (because I heard so many wonderful things about their oils and I know tons of people that already used them, and I researched how great they are).  Since then, I've been slowly educating myself and adding more and more oils to my collection.

Valentines basket + valentines school treats

Hey y'all!  Hope you're having a great week so far!  We've had a hell of a few days!  Kendall had an allergic reaction to a medication and then picked up a virus on top of that so I've been on full time mommy duty the last few days.  It's the absolute worst seeing your child sick :(

I did want to go ahead and make sure that I got this Valentine's Day post up though because I got a lot of feedback on my Instagram about making V-day gifts for school friends; lots of mommy friends wanted some ideas.  So today I'm sharing the gifts I'm making for K to take to school as well as the Valentine's Day basket I made for her!

Fort Worth local companies that give back

Hey y'all!! Happy Friday!! Did anyone else have a super fast week?  Did you see my cute clutch bag on Instagram?  I love this fun pattern and the colors so much!  It's SO me!  This bag is from Elizabeth's Voice.  They have two artisan groups in Uganda and Lebanon.  In Uganda, the group is made up of single moms and widows.  In Lebanon, the group is all Iraqi and Syrian refugees rebuilding their lives in Beirut.  You can follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Valentine's Day 2020 outfit

Hey y'all!  Hope you enjoyed your MLK day, if you happened to get the day off!  I spent mine in catch up mode and sadly, I don't feel that caught up yet.  I did check some things off my to-do list so that feels good!  I'm super excited for some fun things that I have coming up!  It's blowing my mind that it's almost the end of January.  I've been working hard on myself and on my blog and there's just so many good things in the works!  It feels amazing!  I'm so grateful for the supportive people in my life and those readers and followers that are sticking by me as I figure this stuff out!

Today's post is all about my Valentine's outfit!  I don't know what the plan is yet haha actually just asked Chris today if we're doing something for Valentine's because I have this adorable sweater... *hint hint wink wink*

work it girl

Happy Monday y'all! 

This year has actually been really great so far! I know I know, we're only a couple weeks in.  But I've been feeling good lately and I know a huge part of that is taking some small steps for myself!  

I've done a little self care like a mani and pedi and a haircut.  I've also spent time with my family and used some gift cards for shopping.  Next on the list is getting into some sort of workout routine!

Long Hair

Last time I cut my hair was over three years ago. Yes you read that right OVER THREE years ago. Right now my hair is crazy long. It’s in my way every single day. It touches the counter when I reach over to wash my hands or wash the dishes. It’s heavy and gives me headaches when I put it up in a topknot a.k.a. the poof. It’s ridiculously unhealthy. I haven’t had a haircut in three years.

new year organization

Happy New Year y'all!!!

Can't believe it's 2020! I'm excited for a new year and for saying goodbye to the last few years.  This last decade was full of ups and downs, amazing moments and horrible moments.  And while I know this new year and new decade will also have it's fair share of trials, I feel good that I will come to a place of peace within myself and with my life thus far.

Do you choose a word of the year?  I've done that the last couple years and feel like it's a nice way to start the year.  This year I've chosen PEACE as my word.  My emotions have run high the last few years and I've been in a state of chaos and I'm ready to do whatever I can to change that.  I want to intentionally welcome in PEACE that my Lord and Savior can give me.  I want to focus on His PEACE and His timing and plan for my life and accept the lessons I've been learning lately.

my daughter's magical room


Short post... just feeling a little sentimental.  The holidays have been a whirlwind!  Every day Kendall has been showing more and more personality and every day is a reminder of how fast she's growing.  Just wanted to document a few details of her room because it's changing every day and I can't always have the "pretty things" out... that is, if I want to keep them pretty ;)
