Goodness.. mommin’ is a huge job! I’m just so grateful for companies like YL that take the guesswork out of keeping your home chemical free! I can rest easy knowing that I’m making great choices in my home for my family. My kids don’t understand or appreciate it now but they will some day!! 🥰
They are ALWAYS watching.... watching and learning from OUR actions. .
My girls used to watch me....
😞refuse affection from their daddy because of my own insecurities 😞complain about being tired all the time
😞cry when I would try to stuff myself into clothes that no longer fit
😞zone out watching tv in the evenings because I was too depressed to play with them
😞make excuse after excuse to justify why we were eating fast food for supper again
I’m SO thankful that I had an amazing group of women in my bootcamp to show me the reality I was creating for my family. I was STUCK and couldn’t seem to break free. .
Have YOU been watching me? Wondering what my bootcamps are all about? If it could really help get YOU and your family?
I would LOVE to share more with you about what my bootcamps are all about and how we are transforming lives, from the inside out! We get this one shot at life and now I am finally living without regret. My faith is strengthened everyday, my marriage is stronger, and I finally feel like I’m the mom that my kids deserve.. one who is joyful, energetic and present! .
I want that for you, too! ❤️
It’s the most wonderful time of the year... Today I’ll be baking the cornbread that will become the dressing around which we plan our entire Thanksgiving feast.
Turkey is great, green bean casserole is yummy, and the sweet potatoes make me smile. But Mimaw’s dressing is always the star of the show.

Cousins 💕💕💙💕... Oliver’s a little outnumbered on this side!
We met at a bar #shocker 🥂
Actually, I was a patron at the bar/restaurant he managed and that’s how we found each other. A friend from high school was the bartender at the time. He mentioned something to her about me and she was like.. “who? Vanessa? Pshhhhh DONE” .. ❤️ #matchmaker
TEN years ago on November 16th we went on our first official date. 😍 We went to a Heat game (vs Toronto Raptors) and it was SO much fun! We’ve basicallyyyy been inseparable since ❤️
2008 was literally the worst year of my life (more on that a different day 😬) but in November it all turned around and I attribute all the positive changes I’ve made since then to him! Happy dating-versary babe !! 😍💏👫
These last few days have been kind of crazy around here - I’m so thankful that big sisters voluntarily step in to help and have a heart for serving others! 💛 ⠀⠀
So many moments that have filled my cup... a little reassurance that maybe we’re doing something right in this parenting gig. ⠀⠀
DIY Sunday!!! Blending Young Living essential oils is easy and fun! Here I used 2 drops lavender and 1 drop ylang ylang and filled the tube the rest of the way with castor oil. Can’t wait for movie star eyelashes. What DIYs do you make with YL essential oils?
Mommies. They watch your every move. I eat right because my boys are watching. I work out because she’s watching. I listen to personal development because they hear how I talk about myself and others. -
I am on this fitness journey because I need to be a better person for myself and to be a better mommy. I am setting an example and I’ll be damned if I don’t try to be a better version of myself everyday for them.

When you snap “nuggle” pictures with your little one, you have to be careful of boob slippage. She likes to pull at my shirts. 🤣 Worth it though! She is my favorite “nuggler”. 💗
Hahaha sooo true 😂😂 that’s a real mommy Problem!
Thank you @kelseywells for this funny fact!

Durante todos estos meses no publiqué nada referente a mi barriga. Por qué? Adivinan? Bue, mi barriga se empezó a notar a los 7 meses, mientras no parecía embarazada.... por más que comiera no subí de peso hasta ahora....
Is het mijn gevoel of mijn verstand?
Soms kom ik er niet meer uit: mijn gevoel zegt dit en mijn verstand zegt dat… Hoe weet ik nu of datgene dat ik denkt en innerlijk voel.. daadwerkelijk vanuit mijn gevoel komt?
Jaa gisteren was de grote nationale intocht van Sinterklaas. Op insta zag ik ook heel veel foto’s verschijnen van kinderen die naar een lokale intocht zijn geweest. Zo leuk om al die foto’s te zien.
hier wordt in Noord-Brabant wordt de intocht ook gevierd. Wat een plezier ! Maar koud ! Ohh zo koud ! Ik kijk Luá aan en zijn neus is zowat blauw ! ;” Luá heb je het koud schat ? “ “Neee mama nee ik heb het niet koud “
Je kunt toch niet zonder sjaal, en handschoenen met hem naar buiten roept mijn schoonmoeder ; anders word hij toch ziek? Een reactie van een overbezorgde Oma. Maar het zette mij weer aan het denken.. volgens mij is het onzin dat je van tocht of de kou op zichzelf ziek wordt. Verkoudheid of griep krijg je door een virus dat je van andere mensen krijgt aangeproest. Het is echt een hardnekkige mythe ... In deze tijd van het jaar, als het kouder wordt, zijn er steeds meer mensen die inderdaad door verkoudheid of griep geveld worden. Dus een link door al die snotte bellen en rode wangen en de dalende temperatuur is dan makkelijk gelegd...en ik snap t ook wel de kou is natuurlijk niet helemaal onschuldig. Wie bij kou slecht gekleed gaat, heeft over het algemeen een wat verminderde weerstand puur al omdat het lichaam alle zeilen bij moet zetten om warm te blijven! Hoe sta jij hierin ?
Sfoglio le vecchie foto e trovo questa, mille ricordi mi vengono in mente ma anche le preoccupazioni di quel periodo, Ale si ammalava sempre, 1 settimana di asilo e 15 giorni a casa, poi tornava il lunedì e venerdì già era a casa di nuovo, mia mamma mi consigliava di prendere una pausa dal nido ma io lo vedevo talmente felice quando ci andava, tra canzoncine e giochi che non me la sono mai sentita, vi sembrerà assurdo ma ci sembrava quasi di fargli uno sgarbo a tenerlo a casa...aveva un amore folle per la sua maestra e tutt’ ora quando si incontrano Ale prende la rincorsa e le salta addosso “DODIII” 💕
Che dire io sono stra pro nido, sono le loro prime orette lontano da noi e forse all’inizio è più difficile per noi staccarsi che per loro (Ale ora me ne ha proprio dato la conferma, lui si arrabbia quando sta male e non può andare dai suoi amici ) secondo voi?! Nido si o nido no? 🤔
Parenthood can be tough but sometimes you have to make time to enjoy something good. There’s nothing better on a cold night than a cup of crab bisque from Nordstrom Cafe Bistro. It’s absolutely delicious! 😍😋 As a parent, what’s your favorite thing to do when you have a chance?
Today is world prematurity day ❤️
I have always felt very strongly and extremely emotional for families that had/have to deal with all the worries, anxieties, the pain and hope that comes with having premature babies and I have the utmost respect for the strength these parents have to come up with ❤️
Both of my twin pregnancies I had to be induced because the babies were not interested in leaving the premises. At 38+5 with the boys and 37+4 with the girls we were so very blessed and lucky to take home 4 healthy babies within a few days of observation at hospital. I remember counting each day, being grateful for every additional gram that was added to each baby’s weight, setting myself new targets with every one I eventually reached. Seve was born at 3.1kg and Tj, Lulu and Bella were each 2.5kg which I am so very grateful for 💙💙💗💗. At how many weeks were your babies born? (If you would like to share). Today my thoughts and heart and love goes out to all the families and children to whom this day is dedicated ❤️ Stay strong ❤️ #worldprematurityday#prematurebabies#twinpregnancy#prematurityawareness#weltfrühchentag

👆🏻This was a sacred moment. . . Last week, my dad reminded me to “breath in” these moments the best that I could as they’re often mixed in with the “pull your hair out” moments of parenthood. . . No matter where you are in your parenting journey, embrace your moments. Embrace the sleepless nights. Celebrate the smiles. Soak in the silliness. Cherish every milestone... every snuggle... every sound of laughter... because we can never get these moments back, but we can choose to “sit” in them just a little longer, making our moments *memories*... sacred memories. . .
