This beautiful couple is having a baby. She is the one who asked me to start the parent to win course (well she asked me and my husband to write a book and I knew that wouldn't happen!)I can't wait to meet my new niece or nephew!
GENTLE• Side Snap T-Shirts for newborn baby to protect the umbilical cord, for easy diaper changes & swaddling. Easy to change newborn baby out of these when they make you undress the baby at the doctors the first couple days after their born. Don't have to take them off over the head, makes things much easier 💗
As I lay in bed tonight I can’t help but think how thankful I am to have the opportunity to wake up in the morning and LIVE MY PASSION!
⏰5:30am Wake up call
✅Check in with my fav peeps in my challenge group
✅Get the boys off to school
✅Rock my biz
That’s my plan for tomorrow!!! Are you ready to crush your Monday?? Sweet dreams 😴❤️
STYLISH• Along with the Mesa this stroller is awesome! Comes with the Bassinet & Rumble Seat both click on & off easily. Mesa car seat also clicks on & off with one hand. You can also fold this stroller with the Rumble Seat attached, seems like most strollers you have to take off the accessories to fold. The basket underneath is huge too lots of room for shopping bags 😉 this stroller also grows with your family, adding a second Rumble Seat or a ride along board for toddlers.💗
EASY INSTALL• We bought this car seat after our daughter was born because of the amount it reclines, she was only 6lbs 10oz & our other seat offered no neck support. This seat made all the difference! PLUS the ease of INSTALL! Amazing design self tightening base with retractable latches, so your not left wondering if your car seat is in there correctly, if it's green your good to go! Worth every penny💗
LIFESAVER• we made the decision to co-sleep, I am a nursing mama. Makes it way easier to have baby in bed with the demands of breastfeeding; especially the first couple weeks! Brought this home when my baby girl was 3 days old & she took a nap in it INSTANTLY. First time I felt safe to put my baby girl down, being a first time mama it was very hard for me to relax. Now at 2 months old she sleeps in this every night right next to me & I am confident that she is safe & secure & I am able to sleep right along with her💗
How have these 6 weeks gone by so fast? Soaking up every second I can tonight, as I head back to work tomorrow. There are no words to express how much I love this little boy. Give me all the snuggles #boymom#momsofinstagram#momsofinsta
Raise your hand if you are participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year! 🙋🏻 If you’re not familiar, the project aims to raise awareness of food allergies and promote inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. As a mama of kiddos with food allergies, it is such a blessing when my kids are able to participate in seasonal activities with their peers. I typically buy them a few candies they can have and they trade in their trick-or-treat candy for our safe candy...but if we see a teal pumpkin, we know they have allergy-friendly options!
Here are some non-food ideas if you’d like to participate: Glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces, pencils, pens, crayons or markers, bubbles, Halloween erasers or pencil toppers, mini Slinkies, whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers, bouncy balls, finger puppets or novelty toys, coins, spider rings, vampire fangs, mini notepads, playing cards, bookmarks, stickers, and stencils.

It's been a day of bargains!
Floppy Seat cart cover and Carters moose-themed winter outfits came to a total of $21.99 at a local baby/children's consignment shop. Bouncy activity center was a FREE hand-me-down from our friends!
Actually got up today, washed my hair, put on something other than sweats, & did my makeup. Had every intention of handling EVERY errand that needed to be done today, but nap time came around & autumn killed that motivation 😂 #momlife

🍂🍁AUTUMNAL "Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer's loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.
Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet
Our love, a twilight of the heart
Eludes a little time's deceit.
Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.
Beyond the pearled horizons lie
Winter and night: awaiting these
We garner this poor hour of ease,
Until love turn from us and die
Beneath the drear November trees."

Here's the thing: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm not going to lie and pretend like this has been easy. It's been hard, stop & go, and a struggle.
But, when I'm consistently letting go of my excuses, I'm consistently finding results- mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
The more I tell myself WHY I'm doing this, the less difficult it is to feel like I CAN do this.
Support ➕ accountability has been key for me these last few months, especially with the mental/emotional struggle of postpartum depression & anxiety I've been facing.
I want to help you let go of your excuses & find the results you're looking for- physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Starting November 6, our virtual gym is going through 21 days of NO E X C U S E S NOVEMBER together and I'm looking to add 10 women to that accountability group for the month of November!
We will have a weekly LIVE workout together, daily self growth, accountability, support, tips to stay on track during the holidays, holiday & fall recipes, and P R I Z E S!!! Click the link in my bio to lose your excuses and find your results with us - WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER 🖤
Sunday morning run got me like 🎉🙌🏼 I ran 3 miles 😬Listen, take encouragement where you can get it. Whether it’s in person, online, through a text, whatever. Encouragement is like the spark that can light a fire. Sometimes it’s low supply in this world. So grab it, use it and get yourself where you want to be! I’ve found that if YOU Encourage those around you get more back 🤗💜 #cvgsquatsquad#bitchlasagna#runningmoms
"Slim women are REAL women too. We are all REAL, beautiful women. Our bodies have been on different journeys and for me, being a REAL woman isn't about how I look; it's about accepting and understanding others and uplifting them." **I have written a new post about how 'skinny shaming' has really affected my body confidence since becoming a mother. The link is in my bio**
Little Willow taking a nap casually on the living room floor with her blanket over her face (as you do).... she's always liked sleeping with a muslin over her face - I was paranoid at first but did some research on it and apparently it's not that unusual. Wish I could just lay on the floor and take a nap some days 😴
🎶Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Under the sea🎶
Have a happy Saturday from Prince Eric, Ariel and Sebastian. Thank you Collins for such a fun party! @andrewdcollins @aliciamcollins ❤️
I have major leverage right now with Halloween coming up “if you want to go trick-or-treating for Halloween you better get along with your brother.” What am I going to do when Halloween is over… No Thanksgiving dinner, no Christmas presents… No no no I can’t that’s just rude😜
I love being a part of Plum Organics Wellness Advisory Panel. And today we had a great time at the launch of Plum Organics Baby Bowls! Swipe to the next photo to see the boomerang of my excited kids 😂! They loved munching on the ingredients in the new bowls and one of them has my favorite ingredient-turmeric! Thanks to @plumorganics @nibbleandsqueak and @theeveleigh for a great day 😊#babybowlbrunch
There’s nothing like living alone to make you industrious under needed circumstances. Sometimes I make it to the end of the day...or the end of the night, and I can’t believe all of the things I accomplished. Mostly because I had to, and Alex wasn’t around to do it. Last night was one of those nights. The alarm went off at 3:30am and, awakened from a deep sleep, I reached for the gun safe wondering who the heck was gonna be sorry they entered the premises of an angry mama bear. Don’t cross with me at 3:30am. Before I had even opened the gun safe I realized it was the fire alarm. I glanced at the security cam to see if there was a visible fire downstairs. I definitely didn’t smell smoke. I raced around the upstairs checking every room, only to realize it was ONE alarm in ONE room that seemed to be on the fritz. I had to stack a precarious tower of sorts to reach the ceiling, but reach it I did. And by golly I played with a few wires and pulled a few buttons and did a thing. And I’m pretty sure all it needed was a battery change but I’ll have Alex reevaluate the darn thing when he gets home. But in the meantime. I have fixed the situation. So there’s that. And this is particularly impressive because I know close to nothing about fire alarms. Or who really knows! It could be the carbon monoxide alarm. But the moral of this story is, sometimes I’m really proud of myself for doing the things I never thought I’d have to do. And I’m really really thankful that when Alex is gone I’m surrounded by family who just might know how to do what I don’t. Like Great Gramps, and Mamas, and Gimps, and Uncles. They know all the things I don’t about air conditioners, and drains, and washing machines, and who-knows-what-alarms and are just a phone call away. And in the meantime, between 3:30am and waking morning hours...I’ll figure it out. Big girl panties and all. #rogueremington
