10 years + 2 kids = Flip Flops On Set. ⁉️ Today’s #werk made me realize it’s been a decade of opinionated airtime on @cnn #HLN (2008 started with pop culture commentary and somehow evolved into #parenting along the way)... Back when I started, I used to joke that my brain didn’t work unless I was in high heels. 👠🤯 Those fragile days are gone. #Motherhood has made me more confident, centered and focused in my own skin. Heels no longer required. 💪 Flip flops are just fine. (It only took me 10 years. Slow learner?)🤪 How has #momhood changed you? Spill. #thefabmom
Did you know July is one of the most popular months for baby showers? 👶🏼 Apparently the majority of U.S. babies are born in the fall (I guess folks really do get busy during the holidays??)... 💘 So if you’re on the hunt for a fabulous #babyshowergift, grab my fun, fast-read of a book for first-time #pregnancy & #mommyhood. MOTIVATION.🙌 RESILIENCE.💪 Stay capable, happy & FOCUSED AFTER BABY through the first year. (That’s the F-A-B!) 😜 Plus funny juicy stories involving celebrities and my own personal fails/wins. 🌟 SWIPE to see a bit of the recent feedback I’ve gotten... plus a smokin’ pic of a #newmom who grabbed me at a recent event to say how much she loved reading it while expecting her babe! GET The FAB Mom’s Guide on @Amazon, @barnesandnoble and TheFABMom.com. 💝 I’ll love you forever and ever. Now who’s got #pregnant friends? Tag ‘em below! #thefabmom #founditonamazon @amazonlifestyle
#mondaymotivation Nothing like an F-bomb to resurrect the fighting mojo. 😵😜🤩 Officially my new favorite quote! Because #momstrong. This (stupid) year has included: Losing my mom.🖤 The end of a longtime job.📺 My daughter breaking her arm.💔 And now, my husband breaking his knee. ⁉️#happeningnow But keeping it going between borderline losing my mind... 💪 Because things can always be worse. Because there is always good+gratitude in the in-between. ❤️ And because F-bombs always make me laugh & I can’t help but feel soooo satisfied when I drop them.🤬 You too? (Don’t tell my kids that last part...) #thefabmom
#mood ⁉️ Years ago, I saw @robinrobertsgma speak... something she shared (that her mom once told her) has stuck with me: “If you’re having a bad day, end it — go to sleep!” DONE with this week. Ready for BED.💤 Because the sun will always RISE tomorrow. ☀️ #fbf #thefabmom
You know “Simonian” is my maiden name, right? I couldn’t part with it (blame my TV job back when we got married). 🤩 No relation to the sign here except that I went to high school with the family that owns this fun place and my sister married one of the cousins. (I REPEAT: NO RELATION!)‼️ Coming back to reality (and social media) after 8 days in California’s heartland. My hometown. My family. ❤️ We laughed.😂We cried.😢We screamed.😝We cleaned.🗑We talked.🤔We danced.💃We swam.🧜♀️We complained.🗣 We ate and ate. 🍳🍔🍿🍦🍻☕️🍪🥟🍟🥓🍉 I also wrestled a wild puppy out of a mud puddle.🐶 They had a ball, I AM EXHAUSTED. Worth it? Hell yes. 💯#thefabmom
Crazy Cousins & a Cute New Puppy. (NOT OURS.) 🐶 Took a wild plunge and put my phone on airplane mode this past WEEK. 🤭 BECAUSE: Family matters. Family time. Family fun. And I say screw social media when it’s stressing you out and there’s precious real life like this... Back to work & real life (feeling refreshed) tomorrow... #thefabmom What would you name this dog? The cuter-than-cute name my nieces picked on #instastory...
Too soon for Merry Christmas?🎄 Spoiler alert to those who’ve gotten holiday cards from us in the past: This pic (from this weekend’s fancy fun celebrating #church & #family) is IN the running for end of year to-do’s.... 🤩 The real story here though is that these little ladies of ours stood and smiled like models — holding candles+crosses — for AN HOUR while 22 debutantes were presented in front of 500 folks... 😍 I don’t care if it was a lucky one-time fluke, I’m claiming WIN. 🙌 #proudmommy #armeniangirls #armenianfamily #thefabmom
#fbf to what I used to do on #fridays! 📺 Miss these fine folks & the fun+FAB #parenting conversations we’d have (on air and off)... but do not miss the 4am wake ups and struggling with my hair (that I was too lazy to wash the night before) before the sun came up... 😜💛☀️ One of my most favorite jobs ever. 🙌 Turn, turn, turn... #thefabmom #flashback
