I’m gonna miss these days. ♥️
This is what we do after the progress reports come home. 😂😏😬 #honestmotherhood
Going to the barre 💪🏻🦵
We’re having a pretty normal day over here. Normal is good. When you live in the abnormal/ you long for days that are just like today- cookie crumb faces and all.
I’m having a Sunday night moment of needing to tell all the mamas out there that’s it’s ok to do less. Every time we hop on here someone is doing more, making more, creating more, or having more. It can all be so overwhelming. I think we tell ourselves it’s always 💯 inspirational- but is it? It’s hard to be content in a world of comparison- it’s hard to be thankful when there’s constant eyes on everyone else’s worlds. Here’s how I’m doing less in this season. I hope it encourages you. I hope you can think of something you’ll do less of this week. Meal planning with- taco 🌮 Tuesday’s, pizza 🍕 Friday’s, leftover night Thursday’s and potentially a breakfast 🍳 for dinner night in there. It doesn’t mean we don’t have to be healthy about it, it just means I don’t have to really think too hard about what we’re eating. I’m doing @walmart grocery pickup each week and eating what we’ve got from that. I set one of those social media timers ⏱ on my phone so when my time is up for the day, you won’t find me back on here. I think this year I’m pretty much saying bye 👋🏻 to facebook, so if you post something there don’t assume I’ve seen it. Less fuss. Less comparison. Less anxiety. Something I’m seeking this year is to to really not fear what man may think of me. I’m running after what God has for me/ trusting Him and being thankful for the Holy Spirit which guides me. Right now it’s definitely saying less in a lot of ways and to a lot of things — I think simply to make room for more of the good stuff. #honestmotherhood #lessismore
It’s super fun to post pretty food pictures. It’s something I’ve enjoyed doing for over 10 years now but... real life. Real life is those quick staple meals from pantry items we always have in stock. Frozen veggies from #costco . #instantpot Rice. Chicken 🐔 thighs from my #groceryhaul last week that need to be cooked. You all asked for quick meals and so here’s one 😆💁🏼♀️ I cut up the chicken so it would cook faster and more evenly and sautéed it with salt and peeper, @traderjoes herbes de Provence and some #ghee It was quick and simply and pretty healthy. There you have it. Real life. ☺️
These two are off skiing ⛷⛷ while I’m on the couch snuggling the other two, watching a movie, and waiting for @magnolia ‘s chocolate cola cake to cool. When friends bring coke to our house- we use it in baking and cooking because I apparently can’t stand wasting food, even coke! 👩🏼🍳
Still over here planning out my goals for the year not to make myself crazy but because it helps me be intentional. 🙌🏻 I’m thankful for this time + space + this red ♥️ mug from W. Germany 😍. I guess we’re less than a month out from 2/14 so it’s okay to pull this out now. Whether you’re 17 days into a goal or like me and still trying to get your head some space to think about #2020 Happy Friday friends 🙌🏻 #cultivatewhatmatters #powersheets #laracasey #2020 #goals #dowhatworks #forgettherest
