That Feeling

If you have kids you get “that feeling.” You know the one where you think man I should check on them because they’re a little too quiet in the back room or man I should really move that because that’s an accident waiting to happen. If you aren’t a parent a little advice ALWAYS listen to that feeling. So last weekend we were getting ready to go to my nephews first communion right? Well, a few months back my father-in-law took apart a shelf and set it to the side. The last like week or so I was thinking I should move it because a few of the doors had glass. Well, of course, ten minutes before we needed to be out the door my son was playing with his dump truck and while pushing it he hit the door with his foot and it tipped over and shattered. Keep in mind we had to drive a good half hour to get where we needed to go. So I scooped him up stuck him in the living room put up the baby gate, swept up with the help of my mother-in-law, threw on some stress away and went on my way. Needless to say, if you get that feeling don’t ignore it. Always listen to that feeling because of course, Murphy’s law, it’s gonna happen when you’re getting ready to walk out the door.

My blessed life.

I went from working full time 40+ hours a week to staying home and my husband working full time. Now I see him when he’s home, he’s tired, I’m tired and the kids are on the go or want nothing but all the attention. But despite the tiredness, the sleepless nights, and the less time with my husband; I’m so amazingly blessed. I have a wonderful loving husband and two amazingly beautiful children. Even when I wake up in the morning barely able to keep my eyes open while I make a cup of coffee and breakfast for the two year old, he’ll ask “mommy hold you?”. Of course. Always. Then of course we eat the next thing he wants is to get cozy on the couch, which for him is grabbing a blanket going to the couch, throwing on a cartoon and cuddling with mommy. My heart melts every time. I’m lucky enough that the 4 month old sleeps long enough for me to get that time with him.

I watch him grow and learn everyday of which, I hadn’t gotten the chance to do. So now being here for both her and him is the most amazing thing. I’m so grateful my husband was in agreement when I said I wanted to do this. I mean what could be more rewarding than being able to watch your kids grow up and you don’t have to miss it. With that being said we’ve really thought about what we have our kids around too and what we have in our home. My son mostly when he starts having melt downs he’ll go grab his ‘green one’ which is just a stress away oil roll on and he loves smelling it and calms down. I never thought he’d ask for oils but he does. Since we live with my husbands parents, they have a dog and boy does he love her, sometimes a little to much.

My daughter, she’s such a happy baby. She always kicks and plays with her little gym on the floor, she loves looking at herself in the mirror. Rilynn laughs and smiles way more than Jackson ever did, he was so serious all the time. I can’t wait to see what her personality is and see the things she’ll ask for. But, because of my husband and my business I now get chance to see them grow up and I’m so very blessed to do so.

A years worth of update.

Hey guys! I’m back. Yeah, I know. I’ve been MIA for a while but now I’m pretty sure I’m here to stay. Just to kinda give a quick overview of what has happened over the past year or so; last I told you I was stationed with my husband and son in Germany for the military. Since then I have gotten out, we are back in the United States. My husband and I have switched roles. He now works and I’m lucky enough to stay home with the kids. Yes, I said kids 🙂 we now have two beautiful little ones; one girl, one boy 🙂 Jack is now 2 and Rilynn is 4 months. We are so lucky to be the parents of two amazing kids. That doesn’t mean Jack isn’t going through your typical two year old phases though. Since I got out I’m diving more into my Young Living business; being more active and serious about it. Any encouragement is welcome 🙂 I’m definitely excited to be back and writing to you guys! I’ll be doing some much needed updates for this blog site so thanks for sticking with me guys!

Showers and the Spa

Can I just throw out there that lately I’ve been putting a drop or two of eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower. I LOVE IT! You know, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to the spa, that they have a steam room or sauna room. Well, back in California I have amazing people in my life who gave me a card to get a free spa treatment. While this new mom to an eight month old at the time gladly took a spa treatment, I went into one of these lovely rooms and they had eucalyptus oil mixed with the steam the sprayed out occasionally. It was by far the most relaxing place. Mix that room with a cold glass of cucumber water and it’s one awesome day. So as I said I’ve been putting eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower and with a little less steam it is still sooooooo relaxing. Did I put enough O’s? haha I just love that I can be in my own shower  and get the same relaxing feeling as a sauna/ steam room.

Young Living and I

So as I said I would make a separate page for all my essential oils for you guys. I finally did but I cant post there it will still be on my home page as well. So it’s just more in depth I guess. On this lovely page I will post my personal link for anyone wanting to peruse through things, I just have to get that website set up.  I have grown to love what all they have done for my family and I. Knowing everything is completely produced by them and how picky they are with the product they put out, puts this mommas mind at ease. So hop on over to the young living tab to know just a little more about young living and I 🙂

Online school

I told you guys how excited I was to go back to school an how I had signed up for a Spanish class. Well, I was excited. Haha. Now I’m wondering why I choose to do a foreign language for the computer instead of a classroom. So many question and no present professor. Online they take 2-3 days to get back to you and by then, let’s face it, I’m going to completely forget why I needed  help. So as I sit here trying to figure out the best way to go about a class that has already started I’m telling you guys how I feel about foreign languages online you really should just go in a classroom or speak with a native. Thankfully I have my husband who speaks enough Spanish growing up with family who spoke Spanish very well. If any of  you lovely people have any suggestions on the best way to learn through an online class let me know 🙂 As always thank you for taking your time to read my random thoughts 🙂

I did it!

I’m super excited today guys. So I finally did it, I finally signed up for my second college class. I have been graduated for three years. Yes, I know that’s not long but it is at the same time. I have been dreading trying to figure out how to work, go to school, and spend enough time with my family. I feel like I’m going to be a busy bee. I know I’ll survive but I always want to make sure I spend enough time with my son and husband. Time management will start to become a big part of my life the next few months. The class I signed up for though shouldn’t be too hard I signed up for Spanish. It may not be hard but I have a feeling it is going to be very time consuming. I gotta have my baby cuddles and hubby time!
