Woah Baby!

 Hello again loves! Here I am yet again on cloud nine. Boy the last few months have been busy! My family has gone through so many changes in the last year and we couldn't  be more blessed. Since everything with with covid 19 I can honestly say the last year and a half have been anything but boring. Back in February of 2020 at the very beginning of the pandemic we welcomed our second son. Then of course just a mere week after the world was set into chaos, between the toilet paper shortage, the quarantine, and everything else. Here we where left at home with nothing to do. 

Shortly after which when our son was only nine months old our already crazy life got just a bit busier. Due to Covid putting basically everything on hold, my husband's vasectomy got set the bottom of the To do list. Naturally God laughed at our plans of our second son being our last and we found out we where pregnant again. This makes for a total of five children between my husband and I. While we don't always have all five children with us, we are still a blended family and that means our tiny two bedroom one bath rental would no longer work for us. We started hunting for a new place. Thankfully in March of 2021 our landlord had a property come available and we have spent the last few months moving into our new home for the next two years. 

 So fast forward we get all moved in and here we are in July. I'm still in a sea of boxes, my dad has now come to Idaho twice, one of my best friends and her beautiful family have come to visit and now it's time for our sweet new baby to make an entrance. Just a week ago we welcomed our daughter Shiloe to the world and we are over the moon! 

Among all of this as the world begins to reopen, I have some fun and exciting reviews for you planned and on their way! I hope to hear from all of you, Letting me know about products and places you want to know about!

Tell me one positive thing that came from this pandemic for you and or your family in the comments!

Free Shipping on The Kiddy Crawler - Order Now for Free Shipping! Crawligator Tummy Time rolling Toy provides mobility for infants 6 to 12 months old. JPMA Innovation Award Winner 2019 builds strength, develops gross motor skills and supports independence. Pediatric physical therapist recommended.

To be honest the Crawligator is a fantastic concept, however my son was an early crawler so by the time we got our hands on this he wanted nothing to do with laying on it! But he did love to sit on it. He was very comfortable with the idea of it. 

It does not work on anything other than a flat surface. So carpet will not work! it moves smoothly and quietly on  the floor. the spaces between the actual crawligator and the floor are slim and small so no fingers and toes will get caught!

What a challenge

2020 has brought so much change to our lives that where do we even begin? Here we are ten months in to the year, with only two left to go and I think I can safely say as each month passes we are all riding on the edge of our seats. Between the Pandemic, The election, Social Movements and even killer hornets- are we still talking about this or is that over?

Many thanks to this year, while it has been challenging, I have been trying to see the beauty in all of it. So just a little blurb about all of the beauty in my year this far! 

If you have been following my blog, you will know back in February, my husband and I welcomed our second son! He is now eight months old and growing so quickly! He started crawling and pulling himself up at five months. He is cutting his first two bottom teeth as well. He said Mama at six months. He is just so precious. 

Then there is the oldest boy child, we decided to home school. That was rough to start. But now we are over a month in and he is doing well! In fact he is testing at the top of his classes! We have a groove and it works well! He lost his very first tooth and between July and August he shot up four inches!!

Back in march we traveled to Arizona ( Oh i know the tragedy we traveled during the pandemic with a newborn) but well we had a newborn and my entire family was there who had yet to meet him. We also celebrated my grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary. Which in todays world that is a beautiful thing. and more lately than not my family has needed beautiful things like births and 50th anniversaries to celebrate! So check your judgements! Then in June some of that same family came here! 

In August My husbands Family had a family reunion, so we spent five days camping with our family making this the first camping trip for our littlest one! 

There was a change in ownership with the company I work with, so I stepped back from management, going from 60+ hours a week to less than 20 ( also thanks to help from Corona!) Which that in itself has been a huge blessing! As crazy as my kids drive me. I forgot how much I am missing with my babies. So I have been home for so much this year!! 

So as this year comes to a close, why don't we put aside the chaos and challenges, and try to see the beauty in it all!

Good Vibes with the Simple Essentials

May has gotta bring good vibes! I do not know about you, but being as that I am mostly stuck at home I am not only bored but I am starting to get into a funk! So when I got this box from Simply Earth I got really good vibes. This box is called Woman Up. Inside you will find you will find four oils. Two of which are blends. in edition to the oils you will receive recipe cards, as well as extras for your recipes! This is not your average essential oil subscription box.

So lets dive right in to this box! first lets talk about the oils individually and then the recipes!

Marjoram is an oil that is good for menstrual cramping, helps to sooth tight muscles, and encourages relaxtion. I love how the smell is soothing and not over powering! This one is great in blends and on its own!

Tangerine, this one is fantastic for a sweet citrus smell! It can aid in soothing a quesy stomach. I actually used tangerine oil when I was pregnant to help with my morning sickness. It is also fantastic to clear the mind! I often times blend this one with lavendar in my diffuser. My husband is not a huge fan of my diffuser but this one is one he actually likes.

Ladies Choice blend, this one is a blend of clary sage, marjoram, geranium and lavender. This is a subtle scent and again not an overpowering one! It is used for that time of the month to help ease PMS Symptoms.

The Good Vibes blend is floral meets citrus to help balance your hormones and have you feeling right in no time! With the blending of Clary Sage, Geranium, Lavendar, Lemon and Ho Wood, not only will you find a better balance within, but it can help alleviate stress. Using it as a roll on, in a diffuser, or even on essential oil jewelry!

Speaking of Roll on, This Good Vibes Roll on is wonderful! This is now in my bag everyday. I have PCOS and I am also ten weeks post partum... My hormones are a hot mess!! Apply this to the pulse points and you are good to go!

Simply earth sent me several different recipes and I am loving them all! I gave the cramp compress and the bath soak a spin yesterday. Between working and my hormones and my entire body really being out of whack, Both of these helped to aleviate a lot of physical pain I am feeling right now. After a nice long bath I laid down with the compress in my chair and I passed out and did not budge until the baby did!

So one of my favorite items in my house are my diffusers!! I use them basically everyday! I made up the master blend with this recipe! I love this! Spring Day Diffuser blend is calming and smells sweet with both floral and citrus scents. It helps clear the mind and ease the stresses! you know what I thought when I smelled this, stop and smell the flowers, so it is appropriately named!

This month also included a solid perfume recipe and a clear complexion one. I like the solid perfume because I can carry it with me and use as I see fit! I like the sweet floral notes in it. It smells great and not only lifts the mood but brings about a lot of positive vibes!
The complexion blend feels almost as though it wakes my face up! I recommend making this apart of your morning routine! Next to coffee it is the perfect way to start the day!

In this months box I also received the Bonus Box!! jam packed with empty bottles and rollers, beeswax as well as almond oil and Coconut oil. Both regular and fractionated coconut oil!

You can purchase everthing at Simply Earth 

and if you use the code


you not only get The bonus box for free, but you will get a $40.00 Gift card towards future boxes or purchases! So worth it! The best part about this subscription box is that it is not just sample size oils you get!

Every month you will see 4 full size bottles of essential oils as well as 6 different recipes!  This is not your average subscription box!

Simply free is toxin free! That makes it this much better!!
