  • Young Living Order for Feb 2022
    Yes this is in March, but that’s the hard part at times it may take a month for me to get some of my packages due to living overseas as a military spouse. One big positive thing about things taking longer time to reach me is that it feels like Christmas with every package since I forget what i ordered at time. So what did I get this month? Some items are things that I order monthly on what is call essential rewards ( ER) with Young Living and other things I add to my ER order. I also have Theives 15ml, Lavender 15ml, Peace and Calming and Life 9 on my ER. Why do I have these three to come every month you may be wondering. Theives is good for so many different things and I use it for cleaning, making things, diffusing and so much more. Lavender when I first started a little over 7 years ago with Young Living I was told and quickly learned for myself that Lavender is like the Swiss Army of essential oils. For this reason we really do use it for more ways that I can list but we always have it on hand even in the diaper bag I have a bottle just because you never know when you may need it. Peace and Calming is Jonathan and Malachi’s favorite oil and they like to defuse it every night to wind down and get a amazing nights sleep. The last thing that is always on my order is Life 9. Life 9 is a pro and prebiotic that I take every evening before I go to bed. I also ordered sulfurzyme why you might ask well I started working out almost a year ago and I also have some health things that after some research and asking some friends that use it I decided to try it for myself. Things that sulfurzyme helps to support joint health, recovery time of joints after exercise, bone health, immune system, hair, skin and some other things. So I decided to try it out. Something that I ordered for myself was the ART skin care system. Where we live my skin has been drying out and I wanted to really have something to take care of my skin well. I used it before and I was looking for something local and I did not find anything that i would have liked I can’t believe that i didn’t think of ordering it sooner, but I am thankful that I did. I am very excited to start using it and having healthier skin again. The last thing that I placed on my order is Ningzia Red. This is something that I try to remember to take daily along with the little boys who love taking it that is when I remember to give it to them since they are sometimes not in the kitchen when I drink mine. Ningzia Red is definitely something you will want to drink when cold. I have tried it room temperature and it was not as delicious as it is when refridited. After my order I did receive some things for free because of my purchase due to being on the ER program. Geranium is great for your skin and many other things and it smells delightful. Ylang Ylang it smells wonderful and some things that you may want to defuse it for are to help battle self-esteem, lack of confidence or your skin. There are a lot of reasons and why’s to use Ylang Ylang, what are ways you may enjoy it? The next thing I received was Lavender Bath Bombs this is something I have never ordered and I am excited to relax in the bath with one. I am sure as soon as the children see these they will want to have a bath with them as well. Have you ever used them? What are your thoughts? Elemi is another thing that I received that I have never used before from things that i have researched it’s great for your skin and can be used if you don’t have Frankincense on hand or Myrrh. Very excited about this one as Donovan’s favorite oil is Frankincense. I also received a beautiful pink oil dropper bottle that I can make my own blend in to use and I really enjoy making my own blends.
  • Baby is Here
    Our baby girl was born January 28th of this year and what a blessing she is to our family. If you were not aware my husband and I were done having children well so we thought, but last May we found out that God was not done with us having children and blessed our family. McKynzie was born a week and a half early. I went into labor on my own in the middle of the night I told my husband around 8 o’clock in the morning that I think we should go to the hospital so that we can go through everything such as covid tests, them checking me to make sure I was in labor ext. By the time we were done with everything I only was in the labor room for about two hours before McKynzie was born. She is just amazing the only thing has been mama learning life with six children and how to fit all the things in that I feel God has called me to do and at the same time still be the mother and wife He has called me to be. With covid we had to learn to take our own newborn photos and let me just say that it is not easy. When you see these beautiful pictures that people post or on pinterest it is not all that easy, it was fun taking pictures of baby girl and a little doggie was not happy that she was not the one in the camera spot light so she decided to lay down for pictures while we were changing McKynzie. So many great memories with taking pictures along with watching Malachi just love on his sister when we were concerned how he would do not being the baby anymore along with Holly learning and being okay with a baby in the home. Both Malachi and Holly love McKynzie so much they are very protective of her well meaning if she cries they run to her and tell me mama baby sister is crying get her. As for the other children they just love her as well.
  • New Palmer Coming
    This post is long overdue and for that I am very sorry.
  • Fall Hike
    A fun adventure while Covid has things closed.
  • Fun on the Water
    As a family, we love to be near the water or on the water. Sean and I found an amazing kayak that holds three to four people. We purchased it and an inflatable boat. The kayak is for the two little boys, Sean, and myself, and the boat is for the three older children and our yorkie Holly who loves to go on adventures with us. The best part of the kayak is that it is inflatable and it fits into a nice backpack along with the pump and everything we need to be able to go on a fun adventure. This was my first time kayaking and I loved it. The older kids have all been and love it but they only went on a one person kayak. This was definitely a time for them to learn to work together and a lot of laughs were had as they kept going in circles. Sean and I at times had to talk it out as I was learning how to do all of this. I just love how we work together as a family and to see God’s beautiful creation while just being in the middle of the lake. As we were relaxing and the kids played in the water, a swan hissed at me and was walking all around the people, I will say that swan was a little scary. I am definitely looking forward to going again.
