When me or my little one get sick I opt for natural remedies, so I’m really excited to share this sick-day immune-boosting healthy popsicle recipe made with @matys all natural cough syrup (link in my profile for the recipe on @mindbodygreen website!) This sweet treat that’s free of refined sugar will help to eliminate cold symptoms in you AND you’re little one! #mindbodygram#naturalremedies#coldremedies#ad
My little ornament crafting helper attempted to eat the materials and successfully poked holes in two, but eventually got the hang of the gentle touch (see my stories). This dried orange Instagram-Bingo trend (😉😙) has become a favorite tradition. 🍊 (Swipe right to see a little moment from a year ago, featuring last year’s batch and the one time it kind of slightly snowed last year). Lots of people have asked me how to do this and I’ll give a brief how-to: slice oranges (about 3/8” thick), and place in a 200* oven for several hours (like 6-7+) turning them when turning them feels right... I’m going to do another round tomorrow to keep our house warm.. because our heater broke again!
toast tuesdayyyyyy!!!! ❄️❄️Having fun with some zucchini noodles this morning- I put them into a little nest formation sprayed @chosenfoods avocado oil + garlic + salt and baked at 350 for about 7 minutes, added a soft boiled egg+ toasted sourdough and topped it off with sliced avo because that's how we doooo it 😋✨
This girl! 😍😩 Also, so happy it’s Friday! ♥️ Anyone else?!
When his brothers told Charles I'm a girl, he was adamant that I'm not. "Then what am I?" I asked. "A friend," he said. 💔
After a day of foraging, we have enough mistletoe for several hundred kisses, a garland for festive cluttering, and a wreath that jingles every time a child goes in or out the front door. It's been a good day. ✔️🎅🏼🌲
Brrrrr! It’s literally freezing outside and more snow is in the forecast, it’s looking like a white Christmas! So exciting! But immediately following Christmas, I’m all set with anything involving cold or snow, unless it’s a frozen drink on the beach 🌲

Some mornings I want to pull the covers over my head. I want my kids to figure it all out: their breakfast, school and taking care of themselves.
It’s not my natural inclination to be all tender and precious. Rather, I have to kind of slap myself in the face a bit (aka drink my coffee, take deep breaths and say some prayers) to start my day off.
I have to remind myself that these three little people need me now maybe more than they ever will, and that it’s my honor and privilege to care for, love on and guide them through. ❤️
If you’ve been feeling like you’re not the picture-perfect Mama you need to be, there’s plenty of room at the not-good-enough Mom’s table with me. 👭We can stumble our way through, laugh and cry about how horribly we mess it all up and encourage each other to cling to the good and not wish these fleeting moments away.
Parenting young kids is HARD. Honestly, it was even harder when they were a bit younger. Us moms don’t need to be told that it’ll go by fast - we see that, and experience it daily. We need to be encouraged, prayed for and reminded that all we can do is our best. 🙌🏻 Mama’s of 2017, we can do this.

love this sweet little custom rose gold constellation necklace.
Don't fear failure. Fear being in the exact same place you are today a year from now. 📆
Last year at this time I made the decision to leave my teaching career to be a full-time online lifestyle coach.
I was absolutely terrified. But I was sick of leaving my baby girl and living paycheck to paycheck, so I knew something had to change.
So I swallowed my doubt and fear and submitted my resignation.
And here I am a year later.
🔹Yesterday I earned more in ONE WEEK as a coach than I earned in an ENTIRE MONTH as a teacher.
🔹Today I’m taking my daughter to our music class and playing at the science center (something I wouldn’t be able to do I was if still teaching and wouldn’t be able to afford if I wasn’t working)
🔹We’re going to France next week for Christmas and I didn’t have to worry about having enough vacation days. 🎄
🔹I went from dreading work last year and hitting snooze for hours to now hopping out of bed at 5 AM every day even though I don’t have to be anywhere at any certain time. #passion
🔹I went from having very few friends to now having hundreds of true besties (like those girls you see and think, “I wanna be friends with her.” Yep, I locked them in!) 👯♀️👯♀️👯♀️
So I’m looking for the ladies who want to be where I am NOW. Who are willing to work hard over the next year, step outside their comfort zones, and make shiz happen. ✨
Women who aren’t going to give me lame excuses because I don’t have time for that! ✋🏼

Happy Friday! Lots of fur baby 💛 going on over here these days! Ill never forget this special session. I had the pleasure of documenting this sweet family and just a few hours later - I picked up my very own first puppy! I totally get the fur baby obsession now and I can't wait to share a few special pics of my new pup soon! 🐶
About 573,456 photos from our Christmas card shoot is up on the blog today, because there’s no way to whittle it down to one! Happy Holidays from the Cusick fam!! ❤️ http://liketk.it/2tSAz #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKbaby#LTKfamily
We received the best gift of all: a shirt designed by @jccahillane feat. Beau, a @rover_time VIP. Thank you for making this holiday perfect.
Last year, I placed hand embroidered baby booties under the tree and dreamed of this moment when he would be in my arms. Now I have this cheeky smile and dark grey eyes peeking out from under the tree at me. While this smile looks harmless and innocent, it hides nearly twenty pounds of pure energy. My house has become undecorated the bottom two feet of the house. Hello Cheeky One
Vlogmas Day 14 is up on our channel!! It involves these cuties so you should probs go check it out 😉 Happy Friday, friends!!!
It's like Christmas morning over at our house - the new Star Wars movie is out! 🙌🏼 We have not told Ari yet, but we're going to go see it after school! He is going to be soooo excited!!⠀
Do you have a Star Wars obsessed kid? Or are you the kid that's obsessed? 😜 Who's going to see it today? 🍿
This is the first book I’ve ever read from my most favorite author, Agatha Christie.. and guess what? I don’t remember it! 🙈 oh god my brain is just a jumble of the plots of all the crime/mystery/thriller stories that i’ve ever read. I’ll probably remember though when I open the book and read a few pages. But if you’ll ask me on the spot, it’s getting harder to tell which is which. Do you remember all the books you’ve read? My bird brain sucks 😝
Bird brains aside, you can still use my code “17Nikki” for 15% off of your @danielwellington purchase. I’m wearing a Classic Petite Bondi and Cuff in rose gold ✨
Yay for happy birthday Jesus parties, N sleeping in her own bed last night and R not peeing through her 3 layers of blankets, sheets and mattress “protectors”. 🙌🏻 its a pretty kickass Friday over here so far.
This week's Follow Friday features a group of Filipino moms that I have been so fortunate to get to know these last couple of months. They are some of the kindest and most genuine women you will ever get to know on Instagram. Show them some love!
Checking things off the list this week and one was a trial run of wedding hair! ✔️ So happy I have Hali to help me look pretty 💁💁 #dewittknapped#weddinghair @hairbyhali @solastudio26
For the record, I spend most days working from home in a sheath dress and velvet heels, and def not yoga pants 😬. Take a peek at my office reveal on @smpliving, and check out my cray cray OCD prop closet! And yes, that’s a gold disco ball in the corner. (Link in bio).
He runs me ragged.
Every. Single. Day.
He's the reason my silverware has a brand new home --on the counter and the reason why all but two of my kitchen drawers are empty.☺️
This boy is strong willed and won't stop until he gets what he wants.
He loves his "bebee" but I don't think he loves her as much as he loves pulling big brothers hair!🙊
But he can be the sweetest boy in the world and I wouldn't trade him for anything! Mismatched socks and all.
At least he has two socks on, he's usually out one sock bandit.😂
I love our little sour patch kid.❤️
