Welcome back guys! Thanks so much for stopping in! As you know, I truly appreciate you all even taking the time to read these posts.
Looking for an honest *opinion* of what the 2nd trimester is like from a FTM’s (first time mom’s) experience? Here it is:
The good, the bad, the painful parts of pregnancy:
2. Your baby starts being able to hear you and you start feeling the bundle of joy move! They say for your first you feel it move closer to 17/18 weeks! I really felt Theo go WILD at 20 weeks.
3. They say your energy level comes back and you start to feel like you again! Mine didn’t really come back until about 24 weeks. I still felt pretty drained and out of it. I could nap anywhere at any time. Once I did get it back, I went into to crazy cleaning mode. I organized, dusted, swept, and vacuumed galore!
4. If you didn’t do the blood test, this is the trimester where you get to find out the gender of your precious bean! #winning
5. this one might be optional for you, but I had my baby shower in my second trimester as well! Super fun and exciting to be surrounded by everyone who loves you and sweet baby bean!
*disclaimer- these are things/ symptoms that I thought were worse for me or my ‘problems’ during this trimester. Pregnancy is a beautiful thing and every one has it differently. These are simply MY opinions.
All in all, the second trimester has definitely been the easiest so far because I can actually feel and be productive. I can drink my coffee- sometimes-. I can feel normal even while growing that little bean. I am now 28 weeks and 5 days while typing this. The post will go live shortly. I honestly have felt great this week other than waking up randomly than having insomnia for 3 hours and have to wake up to go to work. It was also one stage closer to meeting my sweet baby boy The app I use to track Theo and his progress is the What to Expect app.
My recommendations for a smooth 2nd trimester:
What else are you guys interested in? Let me know and I’d love to keep sharing. I have been doing this pregnancy as natural as possible and have it planned that way for Theo as well!
Just for a tease, here is the recent BUMP update at 28 weeks and 5 days!

Anyways, lets jump right in.
So, life has been pretty hectic lately, but also fun! Work life has been improving. For those that didn’t know- I started a new job again. I have had this job before. I am a General Manager and I’ve been in this role before, however this time is different. I run a slower store and the needs, people, and sales are so different from what I am use to. So it has been an adjustment. Thankfully most things are finally settling in and things are resorting back to what I would call normal. Let’s get a little real in this moment, I crave more than anything to work on my own time on my passion. With that being said, I discovered I needed to up my game. If you don’t know what my passion is….*drum roll please*…. it’s writing! Well that is one of my passions, the main one I plan to focus on. So, I had to up my game and start writing every single day. No matter what. No time limit, just simply writing what is one my heart. I have to physically have a piece of paper and pen in my hand and write the old fashion way. I have tried writing in a word doc on my laptop but it is simply not the same feeling. Josten, my bff, and I went to Asheville, North Carolina for a few hours and let me tell you IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I never really get the time to roam around small cities/towns and just simply take in all the beauty but man- we decided it very last minute. Best choice ever. It just goes to show that sometimes you just have to live in the moment verses planning every single thing. Being spontaneous can be the ultimate reward. Also, I still work at the animal shelter on occasions that I use to work at before going back to this job. So that is fun! Lately, I have also been struggling to find myself again which seems crazy right? I am a writer after all and all my thoughts go onto paper. But what most people don’t realize is that…..I still overthink things, I still eat away at certain parts about myself and I lost who I was….as a person…as a writer….as me. I say this with a heavy heart because I never thought it was something I had to do or deal with. I thought I knew who I was and who I wanted to be. Recently, I can see that it’s not true. I have zero idea on the person i want to become, I am just living right now. I have some thoughts on how I would like to become but I haven’t made any progress in that direction so far. But here is what I have learned…lean on God. My goodness I cannot say it enough, you lose yourself when you lose faith in him. When I skip a bible study session in the morning, I feel the toll it has on me. I feel like I lose even more of who I was. But when I take some time- 15-30 minutes of my day to praise him and dive a little into the word, that is all it takes to help me slowly start rediscovering myself.
So let’s chit chat about money……I am going to get REAL here. I was struggling…hard. Working with animals is so rewarding but it is also very money straining. Shelter worker do not get paid very much but we do so much because there are lives in our hands. That has hands down been the best job I have ever had, and it was heartbreaking when I had to make the decision to leave. I did it because I put myself in some credit card debit in the mix of going on vacation and losing my debt card for 3 weeks. We also had some issues that happened in our house and parents couldn’t fix it alone so I had to make that choice. Even with making the switch these past two months it still hasn’t been easy, i am slowly digging myself out of the hole I created and it’s getting better. I am creating a budget plan for couples (two people). I am doing this in hopes that it will help some of you with your daily money struggles as well.
My personal struggles:
So recently within myself I have been struggling to keep myself on track with goals and also staying motivated. Now I know I have created a post about staying motivated but sometimes it feel nearly impossible to overcome that hump. I haven’t been keeping up with my morning studies or my skin routine even. I have however restarted my yoga routines and honestly that has helped me feel better and get back on track. But I am still not there yet. I have also been slacking on my blog posts, Youtube, and doing anything aside laying in bed. It is crazy how much one day/mood can throw you off in your life. It takes me a while to get back on track. Anyone else relating to all of this? I am also struggling to start an Etsy store business that I wanted to with all of my little creations. I just don’t feel like I have enough time in a day to keep everything going.
Now, as most of you know I keep the side very private, but I will not lie. These past few months have been rough for Josten and I. We’ve have both done a lot of growing up and a lot of changes occurred. We have always worked total opposite schedules for the most part. We only have one day off a week together and we spend it rushing to try to do something fun. We are two very different personality types and soemtiems we butt heads. I also suffer with some anxiety, and that can put a small damper on things. He suffers from a little depression from time to time and that takes a toll on us. All in all, it has been rough and we almost hit our end point. But, we have both decided that we are not giving up that easily and we need to start holding ourselves accountable for what is going on in our relationship and what we need to work on. I will make a new post dedicated to that based on the changes we have made in ours with the hopes it will help you all. We need more of our relationship centered around God’s plan for us.
If you took the time to read this entire post thank you so much- it truly means everything to me. I feel it’s important to talk about how you feel, life updates, and anything else that may bother us. They always say its better to talk it out right?
I know how hard it is when you have a million things written on your to-do list and you can’t get your mind clear enough to get it all done. Then you look at your home and think twice about being able to get absolutely anything done that day. The clutter, the useless things laying around, and so many items that just don’t have a home. It can be overwhelming, it could lower your motivation, and just make you want to lay in bed and binge watch Netflix.
I’ve been here so many times and actually felt this way this morning. What do I do? Well, I am going to procrastinate so I can write down what will help me to potentially help you guys. I know- kind of an oxymoron, BUT seriously, this actually gives me more motivation to take these steps afterward.
So let’s dig in, how exactly does clearing your mind correspond with clearing your space.
Think of it like this- You wake up in the morning perfectly refreshed, go to step out of bed and your floor is messy. Clothes everywhere, shoes in your way, and your basically going through a maze just to get out of your room. Then you make your way down stairs to get your morning cup of Joe and see dirty dishes everywhere- not how I want to start my morning personally. That right there puts a damper on my day.
Now re-imagine it, waking up nice and refreshed to get up in your sparkly clean room and gracefully walk downstairs to see all the dishes clean. Maybe, not that perfect, but it’s way less overwhelming to start your day off this way. It gives your the perfect motivation boost for your day!
So, wherever you may work whether it is a 9-5 office job, work from home, stay at home mom, keep your space clean and clear. Shoot- even working at a shelter keeping your work space clean and clear makes me feel so much more ready to work.
Here are the ways I keep my space clear:
Now to keep my mind clear, sure all the fun organizing things matter, BUT that is not all of it.
Bonus: When you are clearing out your area and find things you don’t need, simple sell it. You can make some extra income plus free up some space in your life. It’s a win- win!
There you have it. The simplest ways to clear your mind and your space. I hope more than anything that this helps you guys in some way, shape, or form. Let me know in the comments below if you used these and if they helped you!

Are you a writer and experiencing writers block? I can relate on a real level. I just recently overcame my writers block by doing a 30 day challenge. I am hoping it will help you as well! So kick your writers block to the curb and join me!
Sometimes we all need a nice little refresher on things, especially if your hobby/job is a creative aspect. I did this for the month of October- I can’t wait to see your answers for this!
List 10 things that make you really happy:
Write something someone told you about yourself that you never forgot:
I used to work with this gentleman named Dudley. I was struggling with some life/ job decisions at that time and the one thing that he said to me was “You are going to accomplish so much and go so far. You are a like a firecracker- when you have an idea- you go for it.” That has forever stuck in my head because to me that means the world. He believed in me so much and it really put into my mind that YES you can accomplish everything you want to do.
What are your top three pet peeves?
Write about someone who inspires you:
There are a few for different reasons.
List Five Places You Want To Visit:
Five ways to win your heart:
List 10 songs you love right now:
I don’t have 10 songs. I am a repeater until I get annoyed with the song.
Share something you struggle with:
Life. I am so undecisive. I can never fully make up my mind. I struggle with it so much. It makes things extremely difficult. I don’t know whether I want to move to FL or live in GA anymore. I don’t know what job I want forever. I don’t know whether or not I want to go back to college or not. I don’t know if I am doing everything right. That is my struggle. Life and everything that comes with it.
Post some words of wisdom that speak to you:
Honestly, I am super bad at reading something and remembering it but the only quote I can think of is:
“Into the mountains I go, to find my heart and lose my soul.” I adore that so much. It really puts you in the mood when you are out and about in nature. It gives you the perspective of why it’s there. Find yourself. Get back to reality.
Write about something in which you feel strongly over:
Animals. Oh my gosh I can’t say this enough. I am 110% an animal lover and I stand by them as if they were children. Humans are so selfish and in their own worlds while millions of animals everywhere are dying and suffering. We are so caught up in our wants that we tend to push away the thoughts about animals. I have a huge disbelief that we still animal test and euthanize because we are overpopulated. I am sorry, but who “decided” that, that was the case? What human thinks they have the right to decide another being’s life? They don’t. It’s because we are selfish and think we control the world.
Something you always think “what if” about?
Hiking. Man those thoughts that run through my head while we are out or on our way to a hike- it’s always the “what if” phrase. What if we slip and fall and die? What if we run into a bear? What if we get lost? I love hiking but I am all about those “what if’s”.
Write about 5 blessings in your life
What are you excited about?
I’m always a little cautious, but super excited for the future. That is probably what excites me the most. Thinking about the possible future and unknown.
Post your favorite movies that you never get tired of watching:
Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Twilight
Bullet- point your whole day:
I will do a typical work day-
Something that you miss.
My creative aspect. I use to be way more creative: arts and crafts, scrapbooking, writing, I would write songs, etc. Now, I just seem bland. Hence why I am trying to get back into writing. Therefore my blog matters to me so much. It is my creative outlet right now. I don’t have to hold anything back.
Post about your zodiac sign, whether it fit you.
I am a Sagittarius, which is a fire sign. I tend to get along well with everyone. I also can’t seem to keep my mind on one thing. I tend to be spontaneous and super outgoing. These are all true facts about me. I try to plan, but my adventure side tends to get the best of me and I can’t help what comes to mind.
Post 30 facts about yourself.
Discuss your first love:
Let’s see, my real first love? Or the one I liked in middle school? My first love that I actually consider my first love was very…outspoken, kind, but we were both young and stupid. It was more of a toxic relationship verses anything else. We were two young kids with big goals that we were never gonna achieve together. It took some traumatic things to happen to realize that. It was heart wrenching, but worth it because now we are both grown up and on the right path- just separate ways. I wish nothing but the best for him.
Post about 3 celebrity crushes:
Day twenty one:
What three lessons do you want your children to learn from you?
Day twenty two:
Put your music on shuffle and post the first song:
Day twenty three:
A letter to someone, anyone
To my future self- Don’t ever let who you are and what you stand for change. You are can do absolutely everything you set your mind too.
Day twenty four:
Write about a lesson you’ve learned the hard way:
When tragedy strikes you learn to let it all go. Don’t hold yourself accountable for things you can’t control. I’ve been through some traumatic things like I am sure everyone has in some way, shape, or form, but you can’t blame yourself. You need to lean to someone you love, or I personally lean-to God.
Day twenty five:
Think of any word. Search on google image. Write something about the 11th image.
My word: Adventure.
As I stand at the top of this mountain, I feel utterly free. My bike in hand- just dreaming of the next step. What exactly comes next….?
Day twenty six:
Write about an area in your life that you would like to improve:
Motivation. My lack of motivation. I feel it being sucked right out of me because I work so much and come home and fall into a routine of just laying on bed.
Day twenty Seven:
Conversely, right about something that is kicking ass right now.
My love life. Yes that is kicking ass, thank you Jesus. We struggled for a while now but I feel like we are on the right page and I am incredibly thankful for it.
Day twenty eight:
Post five things that make you laugh out loud.
Day twenty nine:
What are you goals for the next 30 days?
Focus to pay off my Quiktrip card, less than 500. Stay consistent with my blog posting. Make one Young Living connection.
Your highs and lows for the month:
Still struggling in credit card debt. Barely making enough at the Shelter to save anything or even go grocery shopping. My highs: I got a new job that will give us more financial freedom. I finally started on an evening routine. Focusing more on my health.

That’s right another DIY post. I am coming in hot with these like no tomorrow! Hey again guys! I hope you are doing well! Thanks for tuning in!
Another simple and quick DIY post!
Got messy animals? No problem, let the crate spray take care of it.
Do you have a stinky dog just in general? Easy peazy. I got you covered.
What you will need:
That is it!
Next comes the easy part- putting it all together!
Put in 5 drops thieves and 8 lemon in the spray bottle. Afterward you will put 1/4 cup castile soap. Finally you will fill the rest with distilled water. Simple as that- really!
You will need to rinse off the spray, but it is an all natural cleaner that is 100% animal safe. Lemon essential oil is a disinfect. Thieves is an antibacterial plus the properties in the oil make it an awesome cleaning additive. Castile soap will allow the dirt and grim to come off while making it foam just like regular soap.
Did you know that Young Living also has a full animal line of products available? It includes oils, treats, and dental chews! All safe for those little bundles of furry joy!
Don’t have thieves and lemon essential oil? Don’t buy from Amazon. These oils needs to be 100% pure and real as you are risking your animals lives by using them on their items.

The title says it all in this post, but I think it is so important. I think it is important to touch base on the fact that having a full-time job and a few small businesses on the side is NOT easy. Some people handle it better than others, but I am here to tell you, I struggle. Sometimes I lay in bed before I get up for work and debate on whether I really need my full-time job and just quit to focus on my side jobs. I also think sometimes that it is worth giving up my side jobs and focus more on my full-time job. Or I just want to sleep all the time. I know the struggles, you might have a different scenario than me, but here is mine:
I wake up at 5:30-6 a.m most mornings to start my day by trying to have some me time before I leave for work at 7:15 a.m. I may do some yoga, morning bible study, read, or just hang out with my critters. I then get ready for work around 6:30- let my dogs outside to pee by 7. I follow that by making my breakfast (if I make it at the house) and coffee, fill my water bottle and hop in the car on the way to start my shelter day. Most people think working at a shelter just consists of playing with animals all day long. I with that was all it was, but it is so much more than that. I am currently working on a post dedicated to my day in the life of a shelter worker. Anyways, I am scheduled to get off at 5, but it’s mostly 5:30 when I truly leave. I return home by 6 p.m. from there I let my dogs back outside, feed them, play with them for a little, then I shower. I basically have 1 ½ before I start feeling exhausted to try and do something I want to do (not including eat dinner). I choose to use this time for my business and spend some time with my kitties. I then get into bed by 9:30 at the latest and snuggle up with my significant other, or I pass out. That right there is my day in a nutshell. It’s long and I struggle to make time for what I want to do- but it is not impossible.
Here are some of the ways I stay motivated and the time I use to focus on all my side hustles:
I actually have an hour lunch break so I bring my laptop to work- yes we have Wi-Fi- I do what I can: research, type up some posts, work on my YL, etc. Sometimes I don’t get to use my full 1 of lunch and that is okay, I work when I can.
Sometimes I don’t use a lot of my morning for me time and I will actually finish up or write down some ideas that flow through my brain. Mornings are everything for me, that is when I have the most ideas.
Right before I decide it is time to go to sleep. Right now, it is fall time, so I can actually cuddle up and use my heated blanket and watch some t.v. or, I use the time to work on my hustles. No pain, no game. I don’t over exhaust myself, I just focus on what I can get done. Even if it is only one sentence, it is a sentence more than I had when I started.
Some days I have to repeatedly tell myself why I am doing what I am doing. I remind myself of my goals and the future I want. I remind myself that it doesn’t happen over night and I will struggle, but it will all be worth it.
I use a journal at night before I shut my light off. I brain dump what is going on in my head basically and get it all out on paper so I can sleep and have a fresh start in the morning. I also use it to target a to-do list for the next day.
Remember that working a full-time job doesn’t mean you have to come home and sit on the couch to relax when you get off, there are more ways to use your time and relax.
Set some deadlines for yourself, but do NOT beat yourself up over them if you don’t finish in that time frame. You are human. You will not hit every single deadline, but it is good to keep setting them so you can at least give yourself a pace to stay on.
Sleep when your body tells you, don’t over force yourself to stay up super late just before you won’t make a deadline. You can push your limits but don’t exhaust yourself. You WILL feel it the next day and personally, I can’t afford to be off my game from lack of sleep. I mess with lives here.
How exactly can I overcome the exhaustion?
Let’s be honest here, working long hours is tiring enough then you are coming home to force yourself to work even more. It doesn’t sound very appealing; I would rather just binge watch a Netflix show with my SO. I would rather take that extra hour of sleep then write a blog post because I am struggling with writer’s block. There are so many reason/ excuses as to why we want to keep that exhaustion momentum. I get it, I really do. I struggled with it for years and still do every once in awhile.
First thing is first, understand the type of exhaustion you are feeling: have you been over pushing your limits or tuckering yourself out? Have you missed your sleeping schedule and you are literally just tired? Do you have a brain block? Did you have a long day at work?
Now, what about that weekend you’re off or the day you are off from work and you are just down right tired to the bones?
My tired to the bone bad days are days like I am having right this second as I type this. Yes, that is my current mood. I changed my sleeping schedule and got home later than normal from work the night before and I feel the bagginess in my eyes, but here I am, typing away. It’s 5:15 p.m and I’m honestly thinking about my daily dose of Dunkin iced coffee. But what I really want, is to finish watching Jane the Virgin and sit in bed. However, I will not let myself. I am pushing myself to finish this because I know how good it will feel to know that I am overcoming the tiredness and the lazy feelings. Just know, that you can too.
Here I am, finalizing this even when feeling how I described above. You can do it. You just have to push through too. Have a little faith in yourself.

Today we will be jumping in on our number one disinfectant around- Lemon. But not like the lemon from other store bought cleaners, the real deal. If you are looking for ways to use your fresh rin squeezed oil, this is the perfect place for you!
There are so many ways you can use your lemon essential oil- seriously. Oils are something I will swear by! Fun fact: I made my parents a ‘sleep spray’ once they actually used it ( took them a week) my dad actually overslept for work because he was sleeping SO GOOD. Now I am not going to lie and tell you that will be an everyday effect. Cause it won’t be. BUT, it will help you when you are feeling restless or you have to go to bed earlier than normal.
More ways to use Lemon essential oil:
Clear acne: create a face serum using 4 drops of lemon oil- mix it with a carrier oil (I use coconut- fractioned) let it sit on your face for 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water!
Blood pressure aid: Drinking an 8 oz glass of water with 2 drops of lemon oil can actually help regulate your blood pressure- crazy right?
It is BEAUTIFUL how much these natural oils can help you in so many ways. You never have to worry, because our Seed to Seal promise is there is reassure you.

Peppermint Essential oil:
When you hear Peppermint essential oil, what is the first thing you think about? My mind goes directly towards the holiday season. I am not much of a Halloween person, but I am all about that Christmas spirit! I love me some peppermint mocha coffee or some peppermint bark! Talk about Yum!
Anyways, tis the season since it’s coming up and say hello to your winter BFF oil! Peppermint essential oil is good for A LOT of things, but let’s start with how it’s made. From the Young Living website directly, “Peppermint is originally from Europe, but 75 percent of the world’s supply is now grown in the United States. To produce one of Young Living’s most popular oils, we look to several farms, including our Whispering Springs Farm in Mona, Utah. “
Peppermint oil can be used topically, with aromatherapy, and internally (vitality version ONLY). It is a stronger oil so it would need to be diluted around kids or if you prefer a lighter scent of it.
What are some of the uses of this specific oil?
Peppermint creates a tingly/cooling sensation on the skin when applied. Which makes it a perfect additive to a headache roller or muscle relief after a long day of physical activity! You can also bake with this oil (vitality version) and you can add it to your hot chocolate to make it the perfect holiday blend! You can add it to your bath to create a cooling/ tension relief. Stressful day at work and don’t have your stress away oil? Add a few drops of peppermint oil and it will hold you over! This oil is also particularly good for focus aid.
Have you used your oil yet? If so, what have you made or done with this oil? Let me know in the comments below!
If you haven’t had the chance to sign up yet, you can snag this oil in the vitality form by ordering your premium starter kit!

Hey guys and welcome back! It is so awesome that so many of you keep sticking around with me. Nobody realizes how much it truly means to me!
Today’s post will be super short and to the point style! As you read the title, it is all about that natural lifestyle again. This time, I am ditching my typical toxic- filled air freshener for something that works even better! Who doesn’t love the fact that there are so many more options out there for those of us searching for the healthier lifestyle?
This recipe only calls for a few ingredients, plus some that are optional to spice it up a bit!
What you will need:
Mason jar (or a cute bottle)
Some form of a lid (it can be a mason jar lid or even some plastic wrap)
You will also need something sharp if you are using a mason jar lid
How to create:
I don’t even need to make these ‘steps’ per-say. This is so easy you can do it all at once! Start by filling your mason jar or bottle full of baking soda. Afterward, you will add any essential oil scent you prefer. I LOVE me some citrus fresh. Drops are based on your preference. If you want a heavy scent- 20 drops. If you want a light scent start with 10 drops. Finally, place your lid or plastic wrap (if using a plastic wrap then cut a few slits on top to allow the scent to release).
BAM- the BEST all natural air freshener! I use these in all my bathrooms. If the slits are big- the scent releases faster. Also, this way gives you the ability to change the scent as frequently as you like! You don’t have to change the baking soda out every time unless you just prefer to.
Easy. Simple. Cost effective.
