The 2017 Day of Play was success! I was out there sweating like crazy running around with these kids. I had a ball as always though. For as much as WVU and the state of West Virginia has done for me this is the least I can do. I can't wait till next year!! @umountaineers #wvu#giveback#makeadifference#healthylifestyle
A morning reflection as I cleaned the first floor bathroom... While I DO miss having little ones in the house, I DO NOT miss the inaccurate aim of two little boys!
Empty nesting has its bonuses!!
If a flipped trampoline and having to get ready for work via flash lights bc of no power from this mornings storm all I can say is thank you Lord and thank goodness for you @84texas_guy for being my weather man at 2:00 this morning xoxo!!! On a lighter note traffic along my daily commute is flowing very well. #countyourblessings#hopemytexasfriendsandfamilyarsafe

I walk down to my basement and here's my spot. Nothing fancy or glamorous, but it's all I need to make my hustle happen. I can carve out 30 min for me right here with Beachbody On Demand. I have access to every program BB has ever created and any future ones in the making...from my basement. What??! Yep. Yep.
Get your hustle in today, beautiful girls! Will you always feel like it? Nope. Will it be easy? Nope. Will it he worth it? Yep!! No doubt, these programs work!! They have worked for me and they would for you. I'm just a fairly "normal" person like you. 😉. High five 🖐🏽.Now, go put your positive pants on and make it a great day!!
Helping to direct a path. Sometimes on the way to a goal, something unexpected comes along and throws you for a loop. But prepare yerself. Something big and good is coming. We have to hang on to that. #CountYourBlessings#Prepare#Goals
Nobody or nothing is perfect! But happy is always an option. I will take Happy over perfection all day long! Even waking up without running water this morning doesn't get me down! I am still happy, albeit slightly stinky! I could be upset about this but I am still choosing happy! So many wonderful reasons to be happy. Taking the time to count my blessings. You should take a minute today to count your reasons to be happy! #iamhappy#ichoosehappy#countyourblessings#everyday#thrive mcflan01.le-vel.com
It's so true what they say. They are all different. Well, I can't figure this little sweetie out at all. 13 weeks in and we have no patterns, no routines and a completely unpredictable schedule every day. It challenges every ounce of my being... I just want to make a plan!!! But Baby girl #2 has other ideas. Sunday and Monday night she actually slept all the way through (and how awesome would it be to sleep as well but Baby girl #1 had other plans on those nights) and so I totally got my hopes up but last night we were up again twice (which I know is still good!). There is no point even trying to enforce some sort of nap schedule because she will scream the house down if she isn't ready to sleep (as my husband painfully found out a few times bless him! Sorry babe!) and all the baby whisperer and books alike all want to tell you it works to make a plan, but if you have a strong willed, spirited kid like mine, you might as well throw the books out of the window. And whilst I am desperate to have some predictability in the day, desperate to go out in the evenings to see some adults from time to time and being forced to being flexible makes the inside of me scream, I try to remember that life isn't all about trying to get your baby to sleep and count the blessings of 4 hours sleep in a row, a happy healthy baby, a fun and loving toddler (who is currently begging for piggy bag rides), a devoted and patient husband, amazing friends who encourage you & bring you flowers and a saviour whose name is Jesus and He longs to come along side any season, any issue however small and is interested in every detail of your life and will give you purpose for the day, even on days where all you want to do is shut the door, put on a chick flick and eat chocolate. #keepgoing#everydayisprecious#keepthefaith#countyourblessings#perspective#purposefortoday#Jesus
P.S: how cute is that face!!! 😂😍❤️
P.P.S: now back to cleaning up poop! 😁
I learnt this lesson the hard way! Don't be a prisoner to your past. It was a lesson not a life sentence. Allow yourself to learn from it. Allow yourself to let go. Things that happen are not always your fault but we are responsible for how we chose to deal with things moving forward. Do you want to live a life of pain and suffering? Or do you chose to learn, let go, love people as they are and be grateful for every experience that shapes us. View lessons as blessings. Through pain comes growth. Growth is life ✨🙏🏻 #letgo#grow#countyourblessings
