It’s HOT in NorCal and these lettuce wraps are a refreshing, light meal for this heat ☀️ .
I have to be honest...I don’t cook with pork very often. I always feel like I get it too dry! I kept hearing that the crockpot or instapot was the way to go (I have yet to get an Instapot...) Well, this shredded pork turned out delicious! 👏🏻 .
I’ve posted the recipe on my website:
https://thrivingafter39.com/pork-lettuce-wraps-with-mango-watermelon-salsa/
.
I prepped 2 pounds of tenderloin for this recipe and it will last for at least 3 dinners for all. Next time I will double the recipe for a full week’s dinner for all!

For the longest time, I thought that being married meant that I had to do everything with my husband. Going to the movies alone was taboo. Eating alone? no way! Exploring with the kids without him, don't even think about it. I would even stay up late at night despite my exhaustion waiting for him to be ready for bed. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nearly 12 years later, I'm calling BS!⁠⠀
⠀⁠⠀
For the longest time Fire Season left me feeling empty and alone. I had a really hard time sleeping at night, even if he was safe. I isolated myself from the world. I didn't go on adventures with my kids because it made me feel guilty. I missed important events because I refused to go alone. I counted the days he was gone and became resentful of him. Our relationship was a hot mess. ⠀⁠⠀
⠀⁠⠀
Until a few fire seasons ago when I decided that I had enough. I no longer wanted to feel alone. I needed to get my crap together and find my own passions. I wanted to explore with my kids. I didn't want to miss out on anymore fun with my friends or important moments in life. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So, I made a decision to stop depending on my firefighter for happiness. I no longer count the days he's been gone and I make plans that he may or may not be able to go along with. Heck, I don't even know how many days he was gone this month. It's a huge relief!⠀⁠⠀

Reign was so much fun.  I love hanging with all the beautiful Artist and seeing the new products.  I tried to be in the moment while at Reign just relaxing and enjoying the time with the girls.  So now I’m in need of some much needed rest.  I will be posting all the highlights and new products for everyone over the week.  If you are wondering yes I wore my crown for the entire last day and on my red eye flight home because I promised my little princess I would but then again why not feel like a Queen for a little longer.  Catch you up on all the details later.

Yes!

You need to weigh your food on a food scale.

Why?

Because eyeballing portion sizes are not very accurate, most people suck at it.

Peanut butter, for example; I am positive if you weighed out a single serving of peanut butter you would be extremely disappointed with how little it is.

If you are trying to make sure you are eating enough protein, you should also weigh out your meat, make sure you aren't skimping on that portion ether. 
It goes both ways, to ensure you are not overeating and to make sure you are eating enough.

Foods I highly suggest weighing out, peanut butter, salad dressings, nuts, baking mixes (pancake batter), meat, cheese.

Foods you don't need to weigh, green leafy vegetables, broccoli, green beans, most berries. None of these will cause enough of a calorie punch to throw you off.

If you have been tracking your calories and your progress has seemed to stall, invest in a food scale.

Hey friends! Happy Sunday! We’ve received a lot of questions last week. One asked if we had a career  or worked out of the home. I was a stay at home mama until about 2012 when I took on a hobby and turned it into a business - @twistedvintageaz - we started painting furniture with our friends (they helped us start the business + is still apart apart of it) my hubby built barn tables, doors, ect.  Now it has turned into so much more! We do a quarterly DIY show on @arizonamidday and @12newsaz , we are booked out months on end for custom orders and I love getting to know all my clients and building relationships. It has given me the joy of being able to work from home and be flexible. I have 4 kiddos- the homework and sports (I am such a sports mom you’ll fast learn) sometimes being the single mom doing it all while hubbys on shift-can get crazy - this job has been such a blessing! Being organized is the key.... too bad I don’t have that most of the time 🤷🏼‍♀️ If you want to check out more of my business check out @twistedvintageaz . Our next DIY showing will appear on Tuesday so follow along on my stories it’s always fun.  Any of you small business owners? Comment below!

Back to the real world from an almost 18 day vacation! 😀 (Here's to having a firefighter hubby and running my own business! 🙌) I just had to get back into playing with all the colors! I'm loving the ombre look, especially since it stays just like this all day! I used T.E.A.M Wicked to outline and filled in with Mod Magenta.

Have you done an ombre look?

Finally being able to more frequently get out and do stuff in the evenings now that Rocco is tolerating the stroller a little longer. When your baby dislikes car seats and strollers it definitely has made it challenging to do even the simple things easily and most importantly be able to enjoy it. #herestomorememories #familytime #highneedbaby #boymama #firewifelife #threeboysclub #brothersarethebest #brotherfromanothermother #thecutestkids

So grateful for my village after this week. The boys and I were lucky enough to spend 9 days in New Jersey with my family so Tim could work 5 days & nights straight 🚒

Living four states away from my whole family has been challenging in a new way since having a family of my own. I loved growing up so closely surrounded by a large family that genuinely loves spending time together and it always feels too short when we visit my family for the weekend. With my maternity leave ending in two short weeks, this extended trip was just what my heart needed ❤️

Do you struggle with falling into depression and anxiety? Yes? Do you work on or do something daily that you love? No? 
If you are not you should make room for it and make it a priority. Whether that be drawing, journaling, singing, playing an instrument, etc. Why?
Because the things I love are one of my greatest tools to pull myself out of those slumps. 
I can fight off the lie that, “you never accomplish anything,“ because I can take out my sketches. I can combat the or the lie that “you aren’t getting anywhere,” because I can go make that thing right now. 
I can combats feeling of unworthiness, loneliness, and self loathing, simply by focusing in one something that is lovely to me. 
I’m not saying it works every time. There are still days that the tools I have set up for myself just won’t work. But I can at least try it again tomorrow.

I can’t even lie as I saw on someone else’s page, keeping my kiddos alive while my husband is on shift is my only goal! 
Which you can guess means that household chores get neglected! I wish I could say it doesn’t bother me, but then having to hunt for clothing in multiple stacked laundry baskets has become its own extreme sport!🙈 Last night I found a solution! Folding laundry in bed while watching Frankie and Grace for the win! Now I can get a little me time while also getting things done! 
Anyone else have any tips on keeping the house in order while you’re firefighter is away?

“I can’t do those workouts because....” Girl please. 🖐🏼 I’ve had 4 babies in 6 years and haven’t had a single night when EVERYONE has slept in over a year. 🖐🏼 I’ve had to start my journey over every time with 40+ pounds to lose, I just modify until I get stronger. 🖐🏼 I was born with hip dysplasia and have 3 major incisions around my pelvis. 🖐🏼 My kids are ALWAYS HOME - as in, we homeschool. And 3 of them don’t nap. 🖐🏼 My husband isn’t home for 48 hours at time on a weekly basis. 🖐🏼 I’m NOT always motivated, but I do it anyway. 
Keep the excuses coming. I’ve got answers. 😘

First day of 2nd grade for this girly!

She picked out her outfit, planned her hair, and came down already dressed this morning.

Good thing too... because I wasn’t prepared 😆

I was still rushing around making her lunch (making it the night before is SO much easier), making breakfast (why did Rane have to be on shift THIS morning😆), it’s the first day of school I can’t just drop her at the door and wave while still in my jammies (I’ll save that for next week🤪) so I still had to get ready, Wyatt was refusing to get out of his jammies (dude, I get it I didn’t want to either), and the animals all still needed to be fed. 
We managed to get a photo or two at the front door and made it to school with about 5 minutes to spare... 2 minutes once I stopped talking in the parking lot to a friend 🤷🏻‍♀️🔵 and got her inside the school. 
Perks for being late-ish...open parking spots 😂

How did you rock your kiddos first day?

We’ve been married for 16 years today. •

Yesterday I picked out a card for him. Not the sappy one that I wanted to give, but the clever lighthearted one he wanted to get. •

I share this today on my parenting space because marriage and parenthood has taught me so much about how the love you give is not all about *you* - it’s about the human on the other end, the person you want to feel your love. How are they most comfortable/most willing to/ wanting to receive it?? •

And we can really only know the answer to these questions when we can be open to accepting who they are without our own projections and desires about who we want them to be. •

So today I thank my husband for loving me so completely for who I am, which has given me the strength, space, and courage to do the same for him and for our children. 
Also, he can really make me laugh. 🥰

For as long as I can remember I have always been a people pleaser.  Sure it has some good qualities to it...You tend to get along with everyone because you hate conflict, you go along with the flow because you are afraid of judgement in doing something different.  But I’ve come to learn that I can’t be that person, I can’t always care what others think of me, I can’t shy away from speaking my truth, and being who I am!  Being who I’ve always been deep down inside!  Let’s be honest, I dance in the kitchen, the car, really anywhere like a crazy woman, I sing and talk to myself more than should be acceptable, I make crazy faces and make up curse words so I’m not actually cursing.  I love hard and fierce, and hurt when someone doesn’t reciprocate that love. I want to be accepted by all but have learned I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, nor are they mine.  We all get lost sometimes in finding who we are, but don’t stop searching. “Don’t be afraid of losing people, be afraid of losing yourself by trying to please everyone around you.” Let that quote sink in!

Our oldest son is beginning his freshman year in high school this week. Over the course of the last several weeks, he has discovered that he doesn't particularly like some of the people he was hanging out with in 8th grade. These people were gradually starting to grate on him and it finally came to an ugly head over the last several days. ⁠⠀

Of course, they are teenagers, so it couldn't be as simple as just parting ways. They had to add some drama to the situation by getting their friends all involved in it and starting a friendship war. Highschool am I right?!? 🤷🏻‍♀️⁠⠀

Something good came of it though and I think it is an important lesson that we continue to learn over and over again throughout the course of our lives:⁠

I have always hated oil cleansing! 
It never cleaned my face and broke me out bad! I mean am I alone here? Btw, the first picture I have the oil on already!
Then Countertime came out and I was pretty worried about the cleanser. But holy cow girl, this stuff is magic!  It takes off a full face of makeup and my waterproof mascara. Not only that but leaves my face actually feeling clean and so moisturized! 
I then finish off with the mineral essence, serum, night cream and eye cream! My face feels so amazing! Not to mention less redness, it glows, and smaller pores!

I can’t speak enough to this line! What is your one thing you would change about your face? 👇🏻🙌🏻

Every morning, I do a quick ankle check to make sure any swelling I collected over the last day is on its way out. Preeclampsia involves swelling that doesn’t go away with compression or elevation, and it feels like you are walking through molasses. I’m so glad to have been working not only on my mental game this pregnancy, but also the physical one. I am still not perfect: My consistency with working on being present in my body hasn’t been great this summer, and it shows when I get worked up about little things... but it’s okay. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that having a healthy, uncomplicated pregnancy is a blessing, a gift, and not something to be taken for granted. However setting aside the fears, pulling them out of my body, and recognizing the strength I have—even 5.5 months pregnant—has been really empowering.

I’m so glad to have been working not only on my mental game this pregnancy, but also the physical one. I am still not perfect: My consistency with working on being present in my body hasn’t been great this summer, and it shows when I get worked up about little things... but it’s okay. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that having a healthy, uncomplicated pregnancy is a blessing, a gift, and not something to be taken for granted. However setting aside the fears, pulling them out of my body, and recognizing the strength I have—even 5.5 months pregnant—has been really empowering. . . #healthyhabits #prioritize #discipline #healthyskin #puresafebeneficial #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #patience #arbonne #healthyliving #choosept #moveforwardpt #selfcareisntselfish #hope #pelvicfloorpt #ivf #ivfsuccess #preeclampsia #nicu #highriskpregnancy #infertilitysucks #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #firewife #firewifelife #chemicalfree #girlboss #soulonfire

There’s SO much more behind a picture...
.
This picture of a teacher with family doesn’t show ALL of the planning, prepping, long days at school (well, work for me) meeting new students and parents, emails...the list goes on. I love my job, however, it’s hard on the family at times ❤️ In this picture I am just getting over a crazy cold bug. I have a crate full of papers to correct and file. What truly matters right at this time?  LIVE IN THE MOMENT ❤️

As we close out another summer, I am looking back on this #tbt to our adventures and fun times.  God gave me you!  Just as thrilled to be your wife as I was the day we got married almost 14 years ago!  Luck number 13 has been one of the best so far.  You make me laugh, you work insanely hard for our family, you push me to pursue things that challenge me, and you irritate me when you know me so well that I’m a forgone conclusion...

Yes I’m ready for Reign!!!! Look at this beautiful throne they created for us.  Every women should feel like a Queen why not have the throne and crown to go with it.  The events start tomorrow but you can already feel the excitement and beauty that is a Maskcara event.
