our week in pictures

I thought that I would hop on today and share our week in Instagram picutres…I really love it over there. Connecting with people while also getting a peek into their lives, where they live, what they do, is so neat! I love being a part of the community there, so come on over and visit. :)

Last weekend, my husband and I kept it nice and hot by taking a trip to Home Depot for stuff to do our yard. Yeah…I know, be jealous. ;) // I also posted a teaser about an essential oil DIY I ended up posting over at the simple oil – DIY Hair Product! My husband really liked it, so it was a win. // I discovered a new found love for baths after the kids are down for the night. With my lavender bath salts and a good book, I am in heaven.

This week, I started 21 Day Fix which is a program by Beachbody. I am part of a little bootcamp group where we encourage one another and keep each other accountable. I have enjoyed it but have to be reminded of that fact in the minutes before starting the day’s workout. ;) But I have been happy to put some Young Living Lemon oil in my water to aid in the detox process while I attempt to get healthier. // I posted on the simple oil Instagram account another DIY I am planning. Can you guess what it is? // With the 21 Day Fix, I am eating a specific meal plan, so I was super excited when I found this Paleo Banana Chocolate Smoothie on Pinterest. YUM! It was seriously the best smoothie I’ve ever had.

I also found several inspirational moments this week…but one in particular was getting to interview a gal that I truly admire for her spiritual leadership. In her interview, I was inspired in so many ways, but mostly in the area of community. I crave it. When she said, “I believe women who just ingest God and keep Him private have a hard time having passionate spiritual practices, so I think replicating – passing on what you know/learn/feel – is HUGE,” I was taken aback by how deeply I was craving this kind of community with other women. So this is now on my prayer list. :) // I found this quote by Lysa Terkeurst to be thought provoking. Still simmering on this one. // Lastly, I posted this morning about wanting to wear yoga pants but also finding fun in getting dressed. Honestly, doing the 21 Day Fix has kept me accountable to shower daily! Because no one likes a drippy, stinky mama. Ew.

So there you have it! I hope your weekend is full of rest, recharge, inspiration, encouragement, and knowing you are deeply loved by the Creator of the Universe. xoxo
