In addition to the most soul-filling day imaginable for our annual January Baby Brunch (Let’s All Be Matchy-Matchy in Black Edition), we also felt inspired to have a last-minute adventure. Thank you @mely_82_ for being my brave, spontaneous tattoo buddy, and to @laurenmandelker for being our devoted cheerleader, emotional support, and photographer. My love for you both is beyond words.
And for those wondering, the tattoos say “Mummy” in each of my kids’ handwriting (Edie sometimes turns her Ms into hearts). #myheartisfull#momswithink#friendswhoarefamily
This tiny tattoo has so much depth behind it. Makes me emotional thinking about it, precisely the reason I wanted it permanently on my skin. *Free*🎈 From narcissism which can include and not limited to: -24/7 anxiety & stress -crying more than I should -from all the lies/betrayal -gaslighting -love bombing -triangulation -devaluation -withholding attention/affection -stonewalling/silent treatment -being trauma bonded -my health/weight loss journey being continuously sabotaged **Narcissists/ psychopaths can show up as anyone; co-workers/boss, friends, family, most common is parents and personal/romantic relationships** Free-from coercion
Free-from thinking I always need others approval
Free-from spiritual abuse (which coerced me into agreeing to things that went against my own gut instincts, intuition & everything that I wanted for myself and or my children..which led to great & continued pain for me & my babies. 💔
Free-from thinking I’m not good enough
Free-from the belief that I’m not worthy to be loved the way I love others. I now know I’m just as deserving.
Free-from my codependent tendencies (work in progress)
Free-from thinking I cannot make my own decisions.
Free-from physical and verbal abuse
Free-from alcoholics (never again will I let another alcoholic into my personal/romantic life)
Free- from past mistakes and patterns
Free- of worrying about others misunderstandings and misconceptions of me.
Now I’m Free🎈to let go of all that... and now I am free to learn, grow, grieve, heal from my past traumas so I can become a stronger momma for my babies and stronger woman to hopefully help others in the same situations. ***Thank you my sweet little cousin Ashlee for this tattoo idea. There is not another human I would have rather got this with than you. Thank you for being there for me and being my strongest support. I love you and I’m so proud of you!!! ❤️ 🦋 🎈*** #free#tattoos#tinytattoos#momswithink#healing#selflove#selfcare#nevertooold#strength#educateyourself#recovery
Posted this on my personal account, but didn’t share here! Went to Black Rabbit Tattoo for a walk in tattoo last month and @jennaxruth did this simple and sentimental tat for me.
Childhood home now forever with me. This quote is one my dad would say a lot when I was growing up. when the house would be a mess, he’d say, “I want this house sparkles”, (with his thick Greek accent). So that meant cleaning everything nice and shiny. He helped me become the neat freak. I remember he’d give me a rag and have me cleaning the base boards! I still do that now. He told me the correct polish to use on the furniture he made so that I didn’t ruin the finish and especially with mopping wood floors that less water is best to prevent buckling. It was so important to him for us to have a clean home. He grew up in a home with dirt floors and rough cement.
Just documenting the fact that I’m wearing 𝑗𝑒𝑎𝑛𝑠 today!✌🏻
Also missing summer so picked out this cute little top to bring me some 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 ᒍOY! ☀️🍋

Leg day 🦵 my fav for weights! Didn’t intend to get started on round 🤚🏻 of an 80 day program, but once I got my endorphins pumping from weights I’m not turning back.
Final 8 days left of my nutrition reset cause I’ve got goals! Have I been perfect, nope but more consistent than not! No stopping here 🛑! Comparison difference from round ☝️ (2018) to round 🤚🏻(2020)? Here you go & that’s 10 lbs 👆🏻! Proud of that strength gain 👊🏻 Think that you can’t do this? You’re wrong & stop 🛑 with the self doubt cause anything is possible!
Go get at your day y’all! Next 🌊 of ladies start on Monday! ✌🏼 #momlife#momoftwo#bootygains#weights#noexcuses#determined#dedicated#railroadwife#railroadfam#beastess#nobullshit#cbd#inkedmoms#momswithink#anxiety
I just turned in my application for the @strawberryswingkc Spring show in May! This photo is from two years ago, when my sista from another mista Jess helped me run my booth that weekend in the torrential rain and gusty wind! 🌧 Somehow, despite the wind, tornado watches and rain that year, I sold out of almost all of my monsters by the end of the second day. 😳 If I get accepted to the shows I'm applying for this year🤞I'm going to have to hunker down and basically triple my production! I mean, who needs sleep, right? 🤣
There's no lesson no time like the present, telling you right now. What have you got to lose? 🖤

Life is crazy, yo. We are 17 days into 2020 and so far my alternator and battery have needed replaced. I have been sick with the flu since the 6th. I have had to let go of a toxic family member and a toxic friend. I lost a family member. But I have also had so many blessings. I have found a new respect and reasons to love my boyfriend. I have narrowed my friends down to where only like minded people who are constantly there for me are the only ones I associate with. I got a new tattoo. I have had time to re-evaluate and upgrade my business. 2020 had already proven to be a roller coaster. But I love a good thrill.

I will never try to convince. Im not here to convince anyone. I’m not here to say what I do is better than what you do. I am here to show you what happens when you just go after what makes you happy and fills your soul.
If it’s becoming a doctor, do that. If it’s becoming a teacher, do that. If it’s starting a business, do that. If it’s traveling the world, do that. If it’s being home with your kids, do that.
There’s not one job that’s best for everyone. Because we all have our own unique gifts, passions and ideas. Do what’s best for you, what fills you up and do it proudly 🤍
I’m just here if you decide this opportunity is a solution for you to live yours 🌈🌞love you 💋 oh and I love you the most @kaybaby1017!
Day 1 of single mommin’ it while Ryan is on tour went great! My parents came out for the night...which Ember loved, and then we decided it was a silly face kinda day! Hope everyone is having an amazing day!
I’m obsessed with the blow dry brush! I had seen a video on Instagram talking about them and thought it looked fun but I didn’t realize I was going to LOVE it as much as I do. Here are a few reasons you NEED it in your life.
1⭐️ For my hair being pretty straight naturally, using this makes styling a thousand times easier. It dries my hair so fast and leaves it perfectly straight. I keep mine on the low setting and it works fast!
2⭐️ If you wear any sort of hair extensions, this will make drying and straightening them fast and easy too!! I love using them on my clip ins!
3⭐️ If you’re a girl that loves a blow out, then you won’t be disappointed. Same great salon style blow out but at the comfort of your own home.
AND reason 4⭐️ They are pretty affordable! I bought the hot tools brand at @ultabeauty because I liked the black and gold color and I have some points saved up. I’ve heard lots of great things about all the brands though.
Let me know if you tried one, want one, or have any other questions about them!!🥰
🖤 Did a new thing today🙆🏻♀️. [BackToBlackHair]. Although my birthday weekend was filled with NyQuil & lots of naps, thank you everyone for the birthday wishes, especially my boys for going above and beyond catering to me😅 for the past three days.
