Are you more of a classic noodle or a fun shaped noodle kinda girl? 🙋🏼 In honor of Mac and Cheese Monday (a Jenna Kutcher exclusive weekly holiday) and the fact that the world needs a little less judgement and maybe a few more cheesy carbs! Remember that your opinion of YOU matters more than what anyone else thinks about you! ✨ So boil some water, stick your face in the steam and pretend you’re at the spa, rescue that noodle that got away from the sink (no judgement) and enjoy your Mac and Cheese and the fact that you are totally and completely awesome! 😘 Love, Me
Half of him, half of me. ✨ Double tap if you think he’ll make an awesome Dad! Every morning I wake up and will myself to memorize his face, because I’m grateful to be staring at it. Let’s be honest, he’s easy on my eyes! 🙋🏼 We’ve made a beautiful life together but now I’m busy imagining what this little baby will look like, what it will be like to see half of him and half of me in a tiny babe. 😭 Ten years ago, while watching “Home Alone,” I kissed my best friend of three years and said a prayer that I didn’t totally blow it. It’s been a good decade of falling in love with you. And something tells me I’m only about to fall harder when I see you as a dad. 💕 I love you, @kickingitwithkutch! Prepare for my feed to be filled with our maternity photos by the amazing @child_indigo! I am OBSESSED. Glam by my island guru, @meiliautumnbeauty! #babykutch
🛑 STOP WAITING. 🛑 Stop waiting for permission, stop waiting for acceptance, stop waiting to lose 10 pounds, stop waiting for the perfect man or perfect house, stop waiting for 6-figures, stop waiting for someone to tell you you’re qualified, stop waiting to feel ready. Spoiler: you’ll never feel ready. ✨ The people who are changing the world don’t feel ready. They don’t feel qualified. They don’t feel perfect. They don’t have the code cracked. They didn’t know all the answers. They don’t have it all figured out... but that didn’t stop them. ✔️ They just started going. They started sharing. They started speaking up. They started creating. They started helping. They started showing up. They started putting out chairs. ✨ I know you, you’re waiting. You’re sitting in your brilliance waiting for the green light. You’re yearning for more and selling yourself less. You’re passionate and holding back. You’re watching everyone else and setting rules for when you can begin. You’re sabotaging yourself before you even start. You’re equally afraid of success as you are afraid of failure. 🤦🏼♀️ Imperfect action makes things happen. If you’re waiting for a sign, THIS IS IT. It’s go time! What are you done waiting for? Tell me below, make it real. This is YOUR day/week/month/year. No one is winning while you are waiting. Cool?
I’m at the stage of pregnancy where if it falls on the floor, it’s dead to me. 😂 Only 32 days to go and we still aren’t settled on a name... we don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, so we need to come to the table with both! 🙌🏻 Seriously, SPAM me with your favorite baby names that sound good with “Kutcher” below, help me! (Ashton’s outta the picture, k?) 🤦🏼♀️ Okay, that is all. Help us name of little miracle babe! #35weekspregnant #babykutch #kutchersinkihei
What does your Instagram say about you? Like actually. What do these little squares that you spend time posting tell the world? Are you a starlet or a lurker, a dreamer or a visionary? 🤔 We talk so much about this app and how to beat the algorithm but do we ever wonder if our actual personality is coming through in each square? Or if we’re actually creating human connection in what we share? Or if people even know who we are or why they should care? 🤦🏼♀️ I made something REALLY fun! Head to igquiz.com or the link in my bio! I put together a Cosmo-style quiz that takes like a minute and at the end it’ll tell you your ‘grammer personality AND gives you tips, encouragement, and free resources to help you own your awesome! ✨ This month I’m digging deep into IG with you and I first wanna know what your feed is saying about you. So go take the quiz and me what your results are! I’ve been told I’m freakishly accurate! 🔮
I don’t want to fall behind / lose momentum / become irrelevant... my business is my baby. Only I can do it all. Have you ever thought these things? 🤔 This is what I used to think when I thought of having a baby and running my empire. I was so freaked out. I bought the lie that busy is a badge of honor, I couldn’t fathom taking time away from my “business baby” to take care of a real baby. 🤦🏼♀️ I didn’t trust that I had built something that could run while I rested, I didn’t have a team who could keep things moving forward while I stepped back, I didn’t believe that I could do both things and so I lived with this fear. 🖐🏼 Maybe it’s not a baby for you but a vacation, a sabbatical, a girls night or a weekend unplugged. But did you really start pursuing your biggest dreams to give them the power to control your life? Nah, you probably pursued them in the name of passion and freedom and somehow it became all consuming! ✨ Would you believe me if I told you I have not a single obligation on my calendar for the entire year of 2019? Or that I am saying “no” to almost everything to give myself time and space to settle into motherhood? Would you believe me that I have no work trips planned or stages to speak on or masterminds to lead because I’m looking at time as my currency and protecting it fiercely? 🙋🏼 You are capable of building something that can run while you rest, you are worthy of stepping back, you do not have to stay on the treadmill full speed to continue moving forward. Let’s squash those fears and really pursue our BEST lives, not the ones chained to commitments and fear. Cool? 🙏🏼 I foresee a lot of baby snuggles, days spent at home, family time, relaxing, and dreaming for next year because a head filled with fears leaves no space for dreams. 👉🏼 What would your PERFECT year look like? Tell me below! #35weekspregnant #babykutch
Anyone else think it’s time for Christmas tunes? I mean, Halloween’s over, time for some *NSYNC “Home for the Holidays!” 😂 Maybe it’s because we went from Hawaii’s 90 degree days to Minnesota where it’s 30 and time to pull out our winter gear or maybe it’s because I’m officially nesting for this babe, but I’m all sorts of excited for this holiday season. ✨ I know you’re used to seeing Aerie swimsuits and undies but they also have amazing apparel that I basically live in! @Aerie’s guide to this season’s must-give gifts is here and I’m so pumped to be a part of it! 🙌🏻 Pour yourself some hot cocoa (extra mini-marshmallows) and check all the goodies out at Aerie.com while you shop for the people you love (including yourself!) What’s the #1 thing on your wishlist this year? I have a feeling mine will be: SLEEP! #AeriePartner
“Mom, do you think I’m fat?” 😭 Her heart dropped and she told her 9 year old daughter that she is beautiful and is most definitely not fat. 🤦🏼♀️ I got this message from a follower about her daughter and I wanted to cry. This mother pulled up my feed and told her daughter that bodies come in all shapes and sizes, colors and textures. She talked about why it matters to love and take care of yourself. 🙏🏼 They scrolled through my feed for awhile before the mom asked, “What do you think?” The little girl asked what she meant. She said, “What do you think about Jenna, what do you see?” ✨ The girl replied, “She looks REALLY happy.” She didn’t see a size 10. She didn’t see cellulite or weight or scars or pimples, she saw HAPPINESS. ✨ Are we focusing on happiness or a number on the scale? Are we seeing beauty or picking apart flaws? Are we filling our feed and minds with media messaging meant to target our deepest insecurities or seeing messages of positivity? 🤔 This isn’t just a story about a little girl being told she is too much and not enough all at the same time, it’s your story and it’s mine, too. 🖐🏼 Let’s focus on being REALLY happy! That seems like an awesome place to start whether we are 9 or 90! What do you wish you could tell your younger self?#aeriereal

Three years ago in Maui, I sipped a spicy margarita while watching the sunset, not knowing that it would be my last for awhile. 🍹 The next day on our way to a luau, in a public restroom, I found out I was pregnant. We ended up losing that baby and the one the year after that. These last three years have been filled with uncertainty, fear, hope and questioning. 🙏🏼 Last night we sat at that same restaurant, I ordered a virgin lava flow and watched the same sun set and paint the sky in pastels. I paused as the baby in my belly started kicking, as if to say, “I’m here, mom. Thanks for waiting for me.” 🤰🏼 There’s so much in our lives that we can’t explain, can’t give answers to, but there is something I wish I could say to the Jenna who was stuck in the sadness, who was wondering what her future would hold. ✨ “There is more to your story. This is just a chapter... it’s a hard one and I know that waiting sucks but sometimes the season of waiting is just as important as the thing that we are anxiously waiting for.” 😭 Hold tight. Hold on. Don’t give up. This is just a chapter. You are loved, so deeply loved. There is more to your story. The light is coming soon. ☀️ Tag someone below who is in a hard season, a season of waiting, or is questioning the plan for them to let them know they aren’t alone.
