There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

Love your curls

Sharing is caring!

dove hairIf you would of asked me to write this post about 10 years ago, I probably would of said no. I didn’t necessarily hate my curls because that’s a strong word but I definitely didn’t like having naturally curly hair. A hair straightener was my best friend! It took years to truly appreciate my natural hair. A lot of experimenting with hair cuts, styles, and products. Now I walk around with confidence. 95% of the time I don’t want to spend anymore than 5 minutes doing my hair and thankfully with having curly hair that’s all I need, comb, put a curl enhancing/frizz control product, let air dry and bam I am done! And it looks like I’ve either spent tons of money at the salon or spent an hour or two perfecting the curls.

If your having trouble accepting your curls or you have a child with curly hair, here are three tips that took me years. Believe me once you accept your curls and have confidence you’ll have a radiant glow around you, not just your looks but your personality!
– when choosing a hair cut, I can’t say this enough choose one that is fit for curly hair(and your face shape), don’t just figure “oh I’ll just straighten it everyday” because chances are there will be plenty of times where you don’t have enough time to straighten it or you are just lazy and you leave it curly and it just doesn’t have any volume and looks funny! fyi layers are great for natural curl
– find a product that you love and your hair loves, definitely add a frizz control to your daily regiment
– if you can go at least 1 day without washing your hair with shampoo, this will help control the frizz a little bit

Long story short; learn to #LoveYourCurls!

If you’re anything like me you love Dove and I was so excited to learn that Dove has a hair line specifically for curly hair!

Download the e-book from Dove, Love Your Curls. It’s a beautifully written poetic tribute to curly hair. Did you know? Only 4 in 10 little girls with curly hair think their hair is beautiful. Only 10% of women in the U.S. with curly hair feel proud of their hair. Let’s change that!
