Who in their right mind actually likes Trefoils?! Also, tried the new Smores @girlscouts cookies and they are mediocre at best. Leave the Smores junk food nostalgia to the professionals at @poptartsus. They know what's up. Back to the cookies: Listen people, Thin Mints are always going to be the No. 1, but for the love of christ, please stop putting them in your fucking freezer! You are ruining them!!! Samoas are No. 2, they are like crack. I swear I can't open the box without completely eating the entire thing in one day, I am legit concerned there are opiates in them. Also, what the hell is a Caramel DeLite?!?! Apparently Samoas don't exist in all 50 US State's due to a bakery war with Girl Scouts of America. I'd do more research but, I really don't give a shit. Tagalongs are a close third. Oh and I guess they make a gluten free one now too. Dumb.

us walking back home, her sprinting ahead..
"mommy, mommy! I fell, but I didn't let that stop me!"

camping, we find ourselves by the lake
"mom help me, I'm trying to look for a PINK rock
me telling her that's not going to happen
her confidently ignoring me while reassuring me,
"YES IT IS"
it's been this way ever since I can remember
you, young wild and free
taking many risks
at times, taking after me
me, hoping its only my curiosity for life
only the best of my qualities
being a mom, oh man, what a joy
me and you kid, learning to live, to grow, to smile
one thing about being a mom I know
I can guarantee
is that you learn more from your kid(s)
than anyone else before
and you, my darling, have taught me to
always chose love
always be silly & to
never give up
yup, that's just some
of what i've been learning
on being a mom
It's everyone's favorite time of year...Girl Scout Cookie Season! Keep your kiddo warm AND adorable while they sell those delicious treats.

Women of today are different from yesterday. It is but important to carefully mold them with positive and working mind. To express the beauty of their inner self and to let them soar the outside world.
Booklets are printed & will be available in the Career Center’s Wellness Corner at Beckman this week!! Also you can print out your own copy by clicking the link in my bio. Enjoy!

Did you know you can order cookies online?! Such a great option if you are not local. Also if cookies don’t fit into your diet plan, there is an option to donate to our troops! The twin duo are still working hard! ❤️🍪❤️
Here are their online links:
I got asked today about my job. How I live the way I do, help people, “do it all” and make an income....
And I was kinda taken back by it. I don’t think I live a flashy lifestyle. Yes, I share my day to day on social media. Yes, I have more financial freedom than we once had. We used to live paycheck to paycheck and never had date nights or money to do “fun stuff”. Ever since I remember I was working. Even before I legally had a job, I was finding ways to earn income. Selling candy out of my backpack at school to friends. Making things and selling them. I always had a desire to work hard because we didn’t grow up with money.
As for today, my closet is a wreck. My bed is hardly ever made, and there is always laundry sitting in a basket waiting to be folded. And yes, I have someone help clean my house every 2 weeks. But that wasn’t where I started... Most days I’m a HOT-MESS🤣. .
As for relationships, they keep me grounded and sane 🙏🏼. When I was 11, I lost my dad tragically, I didn’t know how to cope with it, I turned to food for emotional eating and control of my life, I felt lost, lonely and afraid of my future and not having a “plan”. This drove me to do something with my life... .
Nowadays, I have no relationships with 99% of my own family due to stupid drama. So I keep people around that love me for me, accept me, genuinely care and lift me up when needed. And I also give my time to those in need and love DEEPLY❤️. .
Why am I telling you this? Well, because I think it’s important to know that primarily what you see online is a “highlight” reel. And I try to show the ups and downs. But you are going to have your perception of me no matter what. And that’s ok. .
But for those that don’t know, I’m just a regular mom next door that is trying to keep it all together, raise good humans and show up for those that need her😊. .
If any of this resonates with you, just know you aren’t alone and I believe in the power of emPOWERment. And I think it all starts with us opening up with one another and supporting one another. So if you’re needing a friend, a listening ear, or even some advice, I’m here☺️.
