🎉 GIVEAWAY 🎉 I’ve been on the hunt for a portable blender for a while now.

Four years ago I judged people who do what I do now.  I thought - “that’s cute for you but I work full time, am a #firewife and have two small kids. I don’t have time for some cute little hobby that would make a few hundred dollars a month.” Or so I thought. ⁣
-⁣
I was secretly drowning. Wanting something different but feeling so stuck. NEVER did I think I would be “that crazy Arbonne lady.” But, thank God I got over myself. I let the tiniest little crack in my wall bust wide open to the future I have always dreamed of for my family but had no idea how to make happen. ⁣
-⁣
I’m not where I want to be, but I am SO MUCH closer than I was 4 years ago #becauseofarbonne. ⁣
-⁣
Every step of the way I have had people questioning my journey, judging even.  But you know what? Those people don’t pay our bills, save for our retirement, pay for vacations or sit next to our kids when they are sick.  Other people’s opinions are none of my business, right @msrachelhollis ? ⁣
-⁣
It’s not about protein powder and skincare. It’s about CHOICES.  Being able to say yes. Yes to experiences. Yes to living a life of freedom. ⁣
-⁣
When your goals & your why are bigger than your fears and the opinions of others ⁣you will be unstoppable. ⁣
-⁣
I am so thankful I said yes to Arbonne. Yes to this movement. Positivity. Community. Health. Connection. Financial freedom. Choices. And most importantly time.  We get one life, friends. Go out and live like it. ⁣ #joinme

I got my hair done yesterday, and my stylist of about 15 years said this was the longest she’s ever seen my hair... so I let her give me a good trim! 
YOU GUYS, THIS IS HUGE🤗

All because I decided to give the Plant-based Shampoo Thing a try... I will never go back🤗

I have this gift I give myself.....when the hubby works a Friday night, I get pampered 😂 at home. Doing all the work myself. But it’s still pampering. So it’s a good deal. 
Tonight: feet! A good soak, scrub, and body butter ftw!

🖤My husband tells me I’m beautiful everyday...and it actually kind of annoys me. Ridiculous right?! But I  decided to take a step back and ask myself why it does. Want to know the sad truth...it’s because I don’t believe it! I believe that he thinks I am but I don’t always believe I am. Now, I’m not posting this for attention or for anyone to tell me I’m wrong! I’m posting this because I think this is a sad reality for a lot of women out there! Especially these days where comparing ourselves to others is so in our face because of social media. 🖤🖤So, I almost didn’t post this picture. I almost let the moment to share these thoughts pass by. And why...because I’m not as skinny as some girls...not as tan...not as...not as...not as! But you know what, if I was all those things I wouldn’t be me! I’m on a mission to love myself as is this year and you should be too! Next time someone tells you that you’re beautiful...decide to believe them!

I’ve done it! I think I have finally figured out how to achieve the flawless airbrushed finish!  Granted it’s a bit harder with freckles 😉Here’s a few things you need:
•
•

1: Skin prep 🚫 don’t skip this step! You need the perfect canvas to paint on.
2. Tools! No matter how good your makeup is, if you don’t have good tools to apply it with you won’t have your desired outcome! Ask what my new favorite tool is!
3. Quality makeup! I truly with all my heart believe nothing compares to the makeup I use,  but for a great finish please use good quality makeup!
4. Spray and go! Always finish with a setting spray.  Momma doesn’t have time to be touching up makeup throughout the day!

For those of you who don’t know this amazing man finished accelerated EMT school, which basically meant working 60 + hours at his full time job, making calls for the Dept on his off time, studying, and still doing normal night trainings at the Dept once a week and about 17 hours on the weekend of EMT school. To say we’ve all been busy is an understatement. We are both so thankful his last weekend of school landed the weekend before our anniversary! Now to celebrate... I’m so thankful for Collin the last four years of marriage have truly been wedded bliss! I can’t imagine my life without you. Thank you for our perfect little boy. Thank you for being my support person when I’m overwhelmed, scared or exhausted. Thank you for always pointing me to Jesus. It has been so amazing watching you get closer to God each year, and I’m thankful for how you show Jesus to me and Colton each day. You always put family and others first. Your compassion and love for helping others are just a few of the amazing qualities I fell in love with. I’m so glad we get to go on this journey as husband and wife and mom and dad together. You are truly my very best friend, and I love you so much! I will choose you forever, and look forward to 100 more years of a Christlike marriage with you. Happy Anniversary baby!

Raising a little girl is going to be a completely different adventure! Which I’m ready for & terrified for. I want her to be confident in herself & not compare herself to other girls.

•
I’m not the perfect mother, or wife, or woman.. but I’ll be damned if I don’t do everything in my power to raise these babies to know how absolutely adored they are. NO MATTER WHAT. •

Confidence, love, understanding, work ethic.. are all things I want to help to instill in these babies, by being the best example I can be alongside their daddy. Being a momma is the greatest gift & I’m so lucky to have been given that gift. 💓💙

Hello my dear old friend
It's nice to see you again
It's been a long, long time
My dear old friend

I've been in my own head again.  There's been self doubt and fear of the unknown- hurry up and wait.  Being present and enjoying the moment has been hard.  So hard - I've been neglecting myself because well, I've had a million other things that I have been worrying about. 
Today, I was inspired by a friend.  Today the dishes waited and i read to Nico and he read to me.  The living room has to get clean though before I can workout...because that's where I workout. 
I always forget how much I NEED the weights -the excercise until I NEED them. 
Who can relate?  Who gets in their own head way more than they'd like to admit?

Mark your calendars ALL Fire Wives! I am excited to share that we will be having an event of inspirational and uplifting speakers, please plan to connect and be informed. All other fire department wives are welcome, not just limited to LAFD Wives. We all share and understand this life.

Majority of us are married to men that are living out their dreams of being a Firefighter. How many us wives are living out ours? I ask because it is so important to not get lost of just being a firefighters wife. 
Loss of Identity may follow all sorts of change; changes in the work status, choosing to step away from a career or profession, loss of a role that once defined us ... When we lose our identity and sense of self, we are likely to seek our sense of self-worth elsewhere.

Yes, our firefighter is our Hero, Strength, Protector and so forth. Though they may be resilient of the job they do, let’s be their magnetic north and moral compass when they need it! Be informed on how the job affects their mental state. We can work together to save firefighter lives and marriages!

At this time, all details are in the works and we are open and looking for a venue and sponsors. If you’d like to contribute and be part of, please DM and inquire.

Marriage is not easy, it takes work, not 50/50 but 100/100! I have not done my 100 all the time and I am so grateful that God blessed me with such a gracious and selfless husband.

I’m on Day 17 of an 80 Day Journey!  Sometimes you need a big change and for me that’s exactly what I needed in this season. A couple of girls from my team needed accountability too and summertime is the perfect time for this program. It’s great for all fitness levels as there is a modifier that helps keep me going when things seem hard. But the truth is, I try my best to try the hard things because often I surprise myself. I can do hard things!

Several girls from my team have decided to join in doing this program too so you wouldn’t be alone if you wanted to jump in and join us!!!
🍍80 unique workouts.
🍍Nutrition program to keep you on point.
🍍A challenge to get you through the hot summer months.
🍍A support group to get you through the hard days!

Our prep week starts THIS TUESDAY!  And the best part is my Early Bird Special has been extended through Saturday!  We are focusing on the topic GRACE, NOT PERFECTION and will be using Emily Ley’s book to grow our mindset and learn to focus on Grace above all things. (Book not required but for my readers it’s a good one)

Need a change? Need support? Need a community?  I’m just a message away. Let’s talk. We have options for all levels of fitness and all levels of budgets. There is something for everyone!  Who wants more info?

You’ve been on the sidelines watching. You may be wondering if this might be something for you!  Guess what?  You won’t know until you try. Are you ready to take the leap?  Drop an emoji or comment below to get started!  I’m here waiting. And I cannot wait for you to start this journey with me!

This right here is the reason why I’m so passionate about working for myself.

As a firefighter, Shaun works 24 hour shifts every third day. And sometimes, those shift days fall on inconvenient days (like 2 days of a long holiday weekend 👎🏼). So to be able to stop my work on a Thursday afternoon to get our pup swimming in the pool for the first time is just about the coolest thing to me.

We all have our reasons for embarking on this crazy adventure called entrepreneurship. It’s easy for me to get caught up in the day-to-day hardships or feel guilty for taking unconventional time away. But today I’m just really really thankful for time spent with my husband on his day off! 🙌🏼

We spent some time at Disney World this last week, it was a much needed family break. Our kids LOVE to point out anything fire related at the parks. ⠀⁣
⠀⁣
Like this area by the muppets. If you’ve seen the muppets show in Hollywood studios (it’s been around since 1991), you know that it ends with a firetruck coming to the rescue as the “back wall to the theatre” gets destroyed. The kids love this show because of the very last scene. And of course there’s this very colorful OS&Y valve right outside the show. ⠀⁣

Do your kids love to point out all the fire related stuff they might see out in town or on vacation?

I love to read and am borderline obsessed with YA novels and self-help books. I recently read "Own Your Everyday" by @jordanleedooley. In this book, Jordan completely lays it on the line that our purpose can not be found because it was never lost in the first place. It is deeply engrained in us, woven into the very fabric of who we were designed by our maker to be. The concept that our purpose is something we can lose or needs to be found, like one of those socks that mysteriously disappear in the dryer, is bogus. If there is a fire in our belly and we trust the process that God has in store for us, we will begin to own our purpose and find it in our everyday lives. It can not be found, it's not floating around in the land of missing socks, it's been right there inside of us the entire time. 🙏 🖤⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Speaking of missing socks, do ya'll know how hard it is to keep track of pairs of socks for 5 people? Ya'll, sometimes I feel like my life is a culmination of sock folding and dirty dishes. 🧦 🚰⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When I'm not searching for lost socks or trying to make dishpan hands look sexy you will likely find me capturing loves stories that unfold in front of my camera as couples exchange their wedding vows or frolic around on the beach with me. 😍⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Ok, now that I have overshared with you on social media, I would love to learn more about you!

Funny story. On our way to this spot we had to cross a small two lane road right around a curve. So it wasn’t safe, but we made it, and got this wonderful picture. Then my 6’3 husband suggests we get back to the car a safer way. With his long legs he easily steps over the giant patch of mud and I attempt to follow and got one foot stuck in the mud, panicked, and got my other foot stuck🤪 🤣

Oh and did I mention that I had 10 witnesses to view this graceful move?

Luckily we were staying at an adorable B&B near by and be let us use his hose to wash off my shoes. But even with muddy shoes I think it was worth it to see this view. 😊

He gets to come home on weekends for a few weeks then it will be all on us to visit him at the station. I am SO proud of him, but it does mean some emotional adjustments for all of us, especially the boys. Daytime is going smooth but nights have had some interruptions... mama NEEDS sleep!!🌙

A small handful fresh basil leaves, sliced

Directions

Working in batches as needed, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the zucchini cut side down in one layer in the hot skillet and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Use a fork or tongs to turn the zucchini over, then cook them until tender, about 2 minutes, reducing the heat if the zucchini get too dark. Transfer the zucchini to a shallow dish and sprinkle with salt. Whisk together the garlic, vinegar, and remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the vinaigrette over the zucchini and add the basil. Gently toss everything together and adjust the seasonings. Let the zucchini marinate at room temperature for about 1 hour before serving. Alternately, let marinate longer in the refrigerator. Tightly covered, marinated zucchini will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.

“We’re all experiencing similar things. We all have those feelings of doubt, we all have those insecurities, those nights that you stay up and worry... People just don’t talk about it as much as we should, or maybe that we could.” Mckell Smith from @theravnetwork
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just realized that Mckell's podcast episode was published two weeks ago but I never let you guys know. Whoops! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is definitely an episode every Waiting Warrior should listen to because we talk about one of the biggest problems we all face: feeling alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether we feel alone because our loved one is gone or because it seems like we are the only one struggling with different aspects of the job, we aren't alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you have friends near you that help you realize and feel part of a community. If you don't, I really hope you can feel that here.

What does PD stand for?

As a teacher I have always believed this to be Professional Development. In order to improve my chances of getting a job, I have to constantly seek out courses about assessment, literacy and numeracy centers, assistive technology...the list doesnt end.

Not until a few months ago did I learn that PD, to the rest of the world, means PERSONAL Devlopment. 
I've lived way too may years of my life unaware of the importance of this type of PD.

Personal Development comes in all shapes and forms. Books, Podcasts, Conferences, Meditation, Journalling, Masterminding.... too many to list!
But whatever the form, the purpose or goal is always growth; to improve on who we are as human beings.

I am so grateful for my friends, and mentors who have introduced me to the works of Brene Brown, Rachel Hollis, Robin Sharma, Cleo Wade and so many others... because without them, I'd still be under the impression that the only PD that mattered in my life was about Formative Assessment.

And while life long learning in a career is essential, shouldn't life long learning on the subject of your LIFE be critical?? Shouldn't growing and becoming the best versions of ourselves...so that we can become the best teachers or nurses or parents...be the highest priority?? #teacherlife #firewife #leavealegacy #fillyourcup #thestruggleisreal #momlife #momofboys #boymom #firewifelife #bravebabes #northernontario #thesisterhood #robinsharma #brenebrown #rachelhollis #cleowade
