This Wednesday is creeping by 🤪 so I’m just hiding from the laundry and sitting in our living room. But, I somehow managed to write a blog post with some midweek noteworthies ranging from wedding dress shopping with my sister in law in NYC this weekend to potty training questions because that’s my current reality 🤷🏼♀️! Go check it out and leave me any 🚽 👧🏼 advice in the comments! http://liketk.it/2usqz #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home
Note to self this Sunday (and everyday): You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little older than today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Study their little faces and feet. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, momma. It’ll be gone before you know it. -@jenhatmaker . Tag + encourage a mama below bc we’re all in this together + #thesearethedays!!!! . The shop where I bought my sign is closed, but I linked several similar options! xx http://liketk.it/2uoNu #liketkit @liketoknow.it.family @liketoknow.it.home #LTKbaby #LTKhome #LTKfamily . #momlife #motherhood #motherhoodmoments #motherhoodunplugged #jenhatmaker #clickinmoms #dontblink #honestmotherhood #joyfulmamas #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodrising #sahmlife #momlifeisthebestlife #cltblogger #bepresent
Ready to tackle our last full day in Palmetto Bluff 🌾! Yesterday we rode our bikes around the property and saw a gator 🐊, sipped and dined and were seriously pampered 💆🏼♀️! Today it’s more of a “boys day” and we’re heading over to the shooting club to have some fun with sporting clays!! Hoping I dressed the part since I packed with no knowledge of absolutely anything 🤗! http://liketk.it/2uoMt #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder100 #LTKunder50
If you need me this weekend I’ll be cheese-smiling at my better half for pulling off the best surprise trip ever 😁🌤. Some of our best friends are here too - and we just finished beers and burgers after an afternoon at the spa. This is the farthest thing from our reality but I’ll happily soak up every ounce of this little slice of paradise with so much thankfulness 🙏🏼! Sharing our travels with some #instastoryoverload 💛!!
Heading on the “mystery destination” trip Spyros planned for us as a Christmas gift tomorrow! The only physical item my beloved husband has told me to pack is:duck boots 🤷🏼♀️. Can’t hardly wait to figure out where we’re spending our weekend together...in the meantime you can find me studying the forecast he sent me and trying to figure out what to actually pack 😂🤷🏼♀️. http://liketk.it/2umvY #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKunder50 #LTKshoecrush #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home
#Sponsored One thing that I love most about the New Year season is its freshness. After much reflection about the previous year comes a clean slate, a renewed mind, goals, and this somewhat magical motivation to get things done. The top of our list this year? Come check our Home Project #1 of 2018! [http://www.eliseandhope.com/new-year-project-1-repainting-the-hallway-with-hgtv-home-by-sherwin-williams]] #HGTVHOMEbySW @HGTVHOMEbySherwinWilliams
This little sight made my heart skip a beat. Today was exactly what snow day dreams are made of!!! 💓❄️ My heart is still overflowing. Pic overload on stories 🤦🏼♀️ xx Elise http://liketk.it/2uhdI #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKkids #LTKshoecrush #LTKfamily @liketoknow.it.family . . . . . #hunterboots #snowday #snomg #snowstyle #mudroom #motherdaughter #mommyandme #motherhoodinstyle #motherhoodthroughinstagram #cltblogger #charlottesnowday #clt #charlottesgotalot #honestmotherhood #girlmom #sahmlife #girlmama
I spy a snow-obsessed Evie! She’s waiting for Elsa to pop out and build an ice castle because she literally keeps exclaiming, “FROZEN!!!!” 😂☃️❄️.
25 seconds later every single basket of play food was literally dumped upside down and thrown on the floor 🙃. The clean up fairy (aka me) 🧚🏻♀️ will arrive when she’s asleep tonight. http://liketk.it/2ugaK #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKkids #LTKfamily @liketoknow.it.family
This is us today. Pajamas by 4:30. Laundry on the bed. One baby sock MIA. A few hours ago, I braved the doctor’s with both babies and left eating entire humble pie because of a disrespectful, unruly, scream-crying, running away from her mama-who’s-wearing-the-baby toddler. It took all my might not to just cry with her in defeat, frustration, and honestly embarrassment. Oh, and yesterday Sterling fell off the bed on my watch—with bruises and popped blood vessels to prove it. So yeah. I’ve been hearing not very nice things in my head about my momming ways the past two days. BUT GOD. I also have to remind myself what my Heavenly Father thinks of me. And it’s not like any of the lies I’ve told myself in these past two tough #momlife days. Mamas, even at our worst, we are still the ones He chose for our children. We are so unconditionally loved, set apart, and precious in His sight. When I remind myself who I am in Christ, it’s easy to remember that even the hard mom days are the best too because I get to be with my babies. And that’s all I’ve ever wanted. So today let’s all chase the humble pie with a big cup of grace. I know I need it. Grace + peace be with you...and let’s all make an effort to encourage each other and remind one another who we are in Christ!!! Amen?! Preaching to myself here. 😉 xx Elise . . . #honestmotherhood #momminainteasy #cltblogger #momlifeisthebestlife #toddlersofig #toddlersofinstagram #thesearethedays #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mothethoodalive #sahmlife #joyfulmamas #shereadstruth #speaklife #christianmama
