  • These babies turned 4 yesterday, and I wasn’t ready for it.
This mama is having all the feels right now because my twins aren’t so little anymore.
You guys LOVED their suits from last week, and they are still such a great price. They run TTS for kids too (they are both wearing 4T). Shop your screenshot of this pic with the LIKEtoKNOW.it app •

  • “The moment you realize your worth, things begin to change.” @rmdrk -
I never realized how much I was lacking in self confidence, or how negatively it affected me, until I got some. It’s truly amazing how self acceptance can change the entire way that you view yourself, your abilities, and those around you. You are 100% worth the challenges, the ups and downs, and the accomplishments. -
If you’re looking for some other real mamas to follow, @thebirdspapaya @katiemcrenshaw and @thecrunchymommy are some of my favorite people ever. Their messages are not only empowering individually, but also so inclusive for everyone and anyone ❤️

  • We were BUSY last weekend, and it started with a trip to @hardywood (such a great space). This maxi dress is one of new favorites and great for the heat. It’s super flattering, form hugging, true to size, and perfect for summer, even with a light jacket over the top. Under $40, and the slit gives it that little #somethinsomethin 😉
These platform sandals also come in four colors, and I ❤️ them. They are super comfortable, and around $50!

  • (Ad) Today in my stories, I was sharing about how much I still love giving and gifting paper cards. I love the sentimental value that you can send for any day, not just the big occasions.
My mom has always been big on sending cards for any reason, and I’m thankful that gene carried down to me.
You can find the perfect card for those everyday moments from @hallmark at @krogerco. •

  • I mean... can they be any cuter? 🍑
Also, I will twin with them until my dying breath if they let me. No shame!
These matching suits are amazing, and such a great price (under $20)! They have so many other styles and prints also.
ANDDDD my full review of the @omnihomestead is up 🎉
I’m using the @pradasglow @pradasglowbyerin tanning mousse and it is amazing!

  • Good morning from @omnihomestead! Day 1 is done, and can I just say that the the grounds and property here are amazing.These shorts from @closetcandyboutique are such a fun color! For some reason, reds and pinks have been my go-to lately (I’m normally a black and neutrals gal). Not to mention, such a good price!

  • This body: •Has gone through a battle with food and weight loss/gain since high school. •Fights through anxiety •Has carried and birthed four babies, and has the stretch marks to tell the story •Has had two major abdominal surgeries, and the scars to show for it •Allows me to be a better and stronger version of myself everyday.As women especially, we are so hard on ourselves, analyzing every inch of our bodies.
I used to focus on all of the things my body COULDN’T do. Mistake!
Let’s not forget what our bodies have been through and the amazing strength we have been given! Shout out to @katiemcrenshaw for starting #HerBodyCan. 💪🏼 #bodyconfidence  #bodypositivemovement #momof4

We love hearing from you and getting to know you!
