Brand Rep Post {Serenity Faith_Co}

We LOVE repping for Serenity Faith_Co. I saved these photos from our last shipment with them because I so badly wanted to put her in Gladiator sandals with it….buuuuutttt, I waited to long to try to find some, so we went barefoot! 😉

This Vintage Lace Romper can be purchased {Here}. It is so soft, and the details are so perfect. Use the code “SHARE15” for 15% off, you won’t be sorry.

Had to show of some photos of my little sweetheart. I don’t edit her in her pictures-I prefer for her to actually look like she looks in “real” life-so if you look on her right cheek, you can see a bruise where my poor baby face planted on some tile this past weekend at our friends house. #mommyfail

 

I have also gotten some  negative, downright nasty emails about putting photos of Emmalynn up and I can assure anyone that has doubts-this child LOVES being a brand rep. She RUNNNS to the mailbox and BEGS me to take photos of her. If she wasn’t interested, we most definitely would not be doing this.

Brand Rep Post {Walking Luna}

Receiving something we would wear anyways, is SUCH a bonus when it comes to being a Brand Rep. Waiting for the rain to stop, however, so we can finally show them off is TORTURE!

Emmalynn loooooves getting packages in the mail and really OOH’d and AAH’d over this one.

We LOVE shopping at small shops, especially for great quality clothes that you can’t find in the big box stores.

Walking Luna is that. The details, are omg.

Look at these buttons:

The fabric is so soft, the colors compliment perfectly, and it would look adorable on anyone!

WalkingLuna knocked it out of the park with this one. Follow her on Instagram {Here}, or check out her website {Here}. She has THE cutest Star Wars get-ups.

Motivation for the “Working Mom”

I don’t care if you work part time, full time, every day of the week, a couple days of the week, only during the summers, only during the school year, or your job is solely to stay home and take care of your family…it is all work.

We all have a lot on our plates, and when talking with other moms, I realize how alike we all are. We all feel insignificant at times. There are time we can’t keep up. Times we are being pulled in a million directions. Times when we get in our own heads and second guess everything we are doing.

As a follower of Christ, I find that I am spoken to when it is needed the most. At a time when I am wondering if working away from the home is the right thing. Wondering if keeping my kids enrolled in day school is what is truly best for them. After all, most of my working goes to pay to keep them in school. We get a lesson plan sent home over the holiday to continue what they have learned during the week. They were highlighting Colossians 3:23 which says in whatever you to do, to work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.

It all hit me at once, right when I needed it the most. I realized that, although it is not ideal for everyone, my family is right where it needs to be. My kids are in a school that teaches them the love of Jesus. I am blessed to have a job that appreciates me, with a boss that walks with Christ, and understands that I am a Mom, and my family comes first.

I encourage you Moms, when you are at work and feeling insignificant, to remember that you are not here to please your boss. You are working from your heart for the Lord. When you feel like you are being tugged and pulled into a million different directions, just remember, the Lord intended for you to be caregiver for your family. You were made for this, and you have him by your side.

 

My Babies

Irish Twins: 2 babies born within 12 months of each other.

My Irish Twins: 2 babies born within 12 months of each other in the same calendar year (2013).

Things that are hard:

  1. Getting a photo of them together…smiling..looking at the camera
  2. Potty training 2 at once
  3. Everyday tasks
  4. Bath Time
  5. Bed Time
  6. Dinner Time
  7. Play Time
  8. ….I think you get it 😉

Things that are easy:

  1. Smothering those babies with Love.
  2. Spending all my money on them
  3. Putting them first.

They are so smart. I love listening to them talk and reason. This morning it was “Mom, we need to wear our jackets because it is dark out.” Can’t argue with that.

My Son, Beckett, was MEANT to be a big brother. My daughter, Emmalynn, was MEANT to be a princess 🙂

Looking forward to posting about my crazy daily life with these 2 angels.
