Goals are best reached when wearing slippers ✨ No, but seriously. I have no time be hustling for goals with a newborn, but in the hospital 2 weeks ago having a BABY I reached the first 2 goals on that list 🤗 In two weeks, we'll reach the 4th one. All because we've planted seeds all year. Showed up to work our "field" all year (like seriously, we worked really, REALLY hard). We prayed God would grow these seeds he gave us. When it came time for this baby to come, we were able to pause and take care of our family. ⠀ ⠀ I love oils and every single way they've helped our family! Including income 🌱 What started out as a little money to cover my Essential Rewards order has turned into a lot more 🙌🏼 Since I talked about income, below is the Young Living income disclosure statement! http://static.youngliving.com/en-US/PDFS/YL-2017-IDS.pdf

Let's state the obvious...matching Christmas pajamas are ADORABLE!!! 🤩 Josh told me last night that some people think they are dorky, but I think that they are #familygoals Now, I don't know if I'd go as far as to put my husband into skin tight pajama pants. I'll probably let him slide with loose fitting drawstring ones. But there's no judging here! You might have heard my rant on Instagram Stories that Josh and I are not in agreement on this. Thankfully, I think he trusts me with this and hopefully we'll see some matching Christmas pajamas in our future 😛⠀ ⠀ If you don't think they're cute, I will still be your friend. BUT SERIOUSLY, they're irresistible, right?! 🎄😍🎅🏽 ✨⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #matchingpajamas #christmastradition #pajamasparty #jesusisthereasonfortheseason #happywifehappylife #christmaspjs #cultivatewhatmatters #mybeautifulmess #seeksimplicity #dontquityourdaydream #pjsallday #simplemoments #simplified #chooselovely

Things we've forgotten about newborn babies since Taylor was born 3 years ago: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 1. There's only 3 main reasons babies cry: they're hungry, they have a dirty diaper, or they're tired. Literally me every night - "why are you crying, Tenley?!" 😂⠀ ⠀ 2. A diaper bag is a must when you leave the house or you will find yourself in a disaster and in need of a diaper, wipes, a change of clothes, a pacifier, and a burp cloth all at once. And you won't have any of them 😳⠀ ⠀ 3. The secret is in the swaddle. For some reason every afternoon I can't figure out why she won't go to sleep until I remember that babies like to be swaddled 🤦🏼‍♀️⠀ ⠀ ⠀ When Taylor was a baby, I thought I had to be the "ultimate supermom." But what I realized this time is that being the "ultimate supermom" means being full of grace for myself and for others 🥰⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #graceupongrace #momoftwo #simplified #unitedinmotherhood #ofsimplethings #healthyhome #motherhoodissanctifying #joyfulmamas #humansofjoy #bedeeplyrooted #makeithappen #cultivatewhatmatters #givemejesus #shedelights #leadhership #womenwholead #pursuitcommunity #wfhm #dontquityourdaydream #newborngirl

When I got the premium starter kit 4 years ago, I had no idea how it would influence my thoughts (or lack of) about wellness 😆 I got started because my friend showed me how they worked for sleep and stress and that turned into a world of other things! These little bottles of plants have got a lot of power packed into them 🙌🏼 My biggest advice to those of you who have been on the fence about getting oils is to... A) tell me your three biggest reasons why you want to start using oils so I can point you in the right direction on how to use them best! 🎉 B) invest $160 in a premium starter kit with 11 oils and a free diffuser (Merry Christmas to meeee 🎁) C) Open the best happy mail for Christmas 😛😛 oh and give yourself the gift of wellness. But come on, that diffuser is so pretty!! 🥳 PC: My friend @thatgirlheatherrae

Our time at the hospital was sweet, but I sure am glad to be home. We got to be in the hospital a little longer than most people do, so we had the chance to have our families come meet Tenley in the hospital. Swipe to see some pictures the proud Glam-mas!! That’s what the receptionist called them 😉 By the time they asked, “would you like to be discharged early today?” I couldn’t help but answer “YES!!!” There’s nothing like being able to get to know a new little person in your own home! Clearly on a hormonal high, because these past 5 days of getting to know our sweet girl have been pure heaven 🤩 Couldn’t care less about the lack of sleep or the diapers!! Ask me again in 2 months if I feel this way, hopefully I’ll say the exact same 🤗

Tenley Elizabeth has arrived! There are more pictures coming taken by my real camera soon (swipe to see Josh in action). She graced us with her presence yesterday morning measuring 8lbs and 20” long. So far, she’s been a great nurser but not a great sleeper 😅 It’s okay, she makes up for it in cuteness for sure! Oh and if you’re about to say, “she looks like Taylor!! 🤯” We’ve gotten that about 500 times. They are twins 👫 TENLEY WE LOVE YOU AND CAN’T WAIT TO TAKE YOU HOME TOMORROW 🥰🥰🥰

SHE’S HERE 🥰 Tenley Elizabeth was born this morning and we are so, so, so in love! She’s still got a few important people to meet before we post a picture of her beautiful face. A few fun facts: she has a head full of hair, everyone says she looks like Taylor, and she’s got the cutest dimples on both cheeks! Welcome to the world, Tenley 💕 I don’t know how we’ve lived our whole lives without you before today. I’m so honored to be your mama 😛

He’s a really good cook and handyman, he took my packages to the post office today, and he’s the best dad to Taylor (and baby Tenley coming soon)! This afternoon he went above and beyond to make Taylor feel special before the baby gets here. We called it, “Taylor Day” and we did all his favorite things to show him how much we love him! Seriously, marry a man who will do this for your kiddos 🥰 I don’t think I could have asked for anything more! Husbands don’t get enough credit for all they do. Has your husband been awesome lately?! Let’s celebrate them! How did they go above and beyond recently?! . . . . #husbandsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #myhusbandisthebest #aboveandbeyond #ofsimplethings #momoftwo #simplemoments #letthembelittle #intentionalliving #intentionalparenting #motherhoodissanctifying #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodunited
