Channeling my inner mr. rodgers and sipping champagne on the couch in my sweater... hold on. okay, i'm now being told in fact that mr. rodgers didn't sip champagne on a couch, but the sweater part is correct. whatever, happy sunday? 🍾 🧶

Where are my hair care experts?
i’m not one of them🤷🏼‍♀️ i’ve seen so many great reviews on the @revlonhairtools one-step tool but i was so hesitant to buy it because i thought it was too good to be true! i was wrong, it’s worth every penny! it cut my drying time in half, this is critical for me because i do not like waking up early (ever) to fix my hair, get ready for work & get mila ready for school😂

another major factor for me was volume! my hair is normally so flat and lifeless when i b**w dry it but this left it looking more voluminous and shiny ✨ i have exact one under my beauty highlight . let me know what you think if you have it or end up purchasing it☺️ #ltkbeauty #liketkit @liketoknow.it .family @liketoknow.it you can instantly shop my looks by following me on the liketoknow.it shopping app http://liketk.it/2jv8m

Hi ✋🏻so many new faces around here i thought i would make a proper introduction for y’all. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
i am elexa mom of 2. texan born austin living for way more than half my life (not saying because i don’t want to age myself😉)⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
i love being a mom, keeping it real, sharing my passion of thrifting and frugal living in rapidly growing metropolitan.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
i live with anxiety and the impact of great loss and grief. i try to share my story to help others on a similar path. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
i choose to live a frugal life not because i don’t appreciate the finer things in life but because i do. i want to experience fully my life and still be at home with my family so i choose to live a simpler & frugal life and i like to share how easy it can be. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
i hope now you know a little more about me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
i would love to know more about you tell me one thing about yourself i may not know yet. ⁣

While i truly appreciate mckenna’s love for art and ability to entertain herself while i sleep until past 7:30, i do not appreciate her love for sharpies 😖. that being said, i’m going to take a few minutes and dive into a devotional with my coffee! *save this post for these— my favorites over the past few years have been: pressing pause, the busy moms devotional, jesus calling, and brave: honest questions women ask

do you have a favorite?! i love light-hearted and witty. share your favorites so we can all find a new way to connect!

I've always felt like it's better to walk in the right direction than run in the wrong one. and that's why i'm so excited for rest fest next month!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
when life is moving so fast we feel like we can't keep up, it's amazing what a little reset can do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
come for the day or stay for the weekend and experience true rest. they’ve curated a chill line up of events including hiking, restorative yoga, guided meditation, sound healing, and more all in service of your wellbeing. and i'm delighted to be leading a sound healing and mediation class.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it's the perfect way to recharge amidst the natural beauty of @samadhiyogaretreat. and like any good fest would - lots of treats await!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i'd love to see y’all in the hill country in march! grab your tickets via @txrestfest

Introduction time ✌🏻 there are a lot of new faces around here lately and i’ve never done an “about me” so here goes nothing! .

i’m jess. i don’t know my enneagram. i’m obsessed with pizza and philly cheese steaks. i’m into audiobooks and true crime podcasts. i cannot handle mushrooms, when people are rude to service-industry workers, or road rage. i loved being a sahm, but i recently started a full-time job with special olympics texas and that’s pretty dope, too. .

what else do ya wanna know?!

I was always one who needed more motivation and a workout to follow. if left to my own devices i would wander around the gym, sporting my workout gear and hardly break a sweat. 🤔

now as a mama, i just don’t have time to dawdle. i need to get in and get out. i want to be efficient and productive in my exercise time.🙌 it took me awhile to find a workout that truly worked for me. this year, my friend introduced me to f45 and i was hooked.🏋🏼‍♀️🤸‍♀️ check out my latest blog post {link in bio} to learn more about why this workout is becoming an amazing way to get the blood pumping. ❤️ @f45_training_jollyville #f45jollyville #f45training #f45challenge #sponsoredpost #ad #sweatingisgoodforyou #importanceofsweating #sweatingisdetoxing #wellnessadvocate #momsworkout #workhardplayharder💪 #exercisemotivation #excercisedaily #sweatingissexy #healthybodyandmind #endorphins #momswhoworkout #livehealthier #austinmom #atx #mombloggers #momsofinsta #momsofig #breastcancersurvivor #breastcancerthriver #breastcancerwarrior #tuesdayvibes #transformationtuesdays

Day one of @melyogamama ‘s 10 day green juice challenge! i love green juice, y’all. this is hardly a “challenge” since it’s basically doing my favorite thing, but i thought i’d give it a big kickoff anyway. am i intimidatingly fancy in my enormous purple robe that makes me look like grimace from mcdonald’s? obviously yes, but don’t be scared. green juice is for everyone, not just the effortlessly fashionable among us. 😜✨

(juice is from daily juice since i do not own a juicer. boy, “juice” doesn’t even look like a word anymore after that sentence.)

Last night i had someone from my past pop their ugly head up again. a relative that has causes me nothing but grief.. i was up all night thinking about how to avoid this person interacting with me in the future.
i realized unfortunately the only way i can is by controlling my own reaction and as silly as it sounds...i need to just let this pass. sometimes things or people don’t deserve your reaction. if you think about it your reaction is a powerful thing.
so peace out and i’m moving on...again now. .

In honor of run disney princess half marathon weekend that just happened i am flashing back to last month and my adventure to disney and doing the dopey! ⁣

i remember when i first came across this run, this challenge and i initially was like hell yes, disney, i can do that. ⁣

the moment those words came out of my mouth doubt set in. thoughts like; um, sara you are crazy. you have never ran or done anything like that before. ⁣

that’s too far and hard. what if you get injured? what if you can’t finish? what if you can’t run the whole thing? what if adam is like this is a crazy idea? what if we can’t afford going or we go and then i won’t be able to run any more races for the rest of the year? ⁣

and the negative what if thoughts ran through my head. ⁣

but, after all the what if’s. after i got them all out of my system i couldn’t stop thinking about this race. ⁣

ask any of my co-workers. when we were slow i would pop into the tablet and read & learn more about the d***y challenge! i started to look up possible places to stay, flights & i really started to dream! ⁣

i couldn’t get this dream out of my head. the more i thought about it the more it brought me joy & happiness thinking about a new what if. what if i finish!? what if i can actually do this? what if i put in the hard work and committed to this challenge that excited me and scared me all at the same time? ⁣

what if i proved myself wrong and made a dream of mine a freaking reality? ⁣

it took me a solid month to finally commit to this challenge = self doubt.⁣

guess what? i finished all 48.6 miles & pred my 10k & marathon. holy shit! dreams do come true when you put in the hard work! when you show up! when you make little lifestyle changes that are uncomfortable at first but become apart of your daily life. ⁣

y’all, it doesn’t work if you don’t work. ⁣

now i have this big audacious dream to run all the disney races but that’s expensive! ⁣

but it is possible! how? coaching! helping women reach their big audacious dreams; financially, reminding them they deserve to pour into themselves, ❤️themselves more, seeing their worth!⁣

you are worth chasing your big audacious dreams, too!

Yes, i’m a working mama and i can do it while holding my two babies! i’m so grateful for these moments and making my husband grab my phone to capture it(👀)! ⁣

work life balance as a working mom is so important to me and i don’t care how demanding a job may be, nothing should get in the way of spending time with family because you never know what day will be your last! ⁣

also i’m working on being more present and putting my phone down more often. that one may take some therapy though(🤣jk)! ⁣

comment 4 star 43 Yesterday

Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. it is both. appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. we feel connected. on the other hand, wretchedness--life's painful aspect--softens us up considerably. knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. when you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody's eyes because you feel you haven't got anything to lose--you're just there. the wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes.” pema chodron

How far would you go to get some quiet time?
.
in 1981, three students from sul ross university decided to haul a desk up to the top of hancock hill in alpine, tx just to have a quiet place to work!
.
as a mom, i think i might go to the same lengths to find some quiet alone time!
.
this desk still sits on top of hancock hill where hikers can go to reflect and take in the beautiful landscape below. if you’re in west texas, i would make this one of your stops.
.
i got a little lost trying to maneuver my way to the desk because there are no signs pointing the way. here are some basic directions to see you on the right path:
.
🗺 head to sul ross university in alpine
.
🗺 turn into entrance 4
.
🗺 drive to the uppermost parking lot behind mountainside dormitory.
.
🗺 the trail head will be easy to spot from there!
.
🗺 hike up past the rock pile and stay along the campus property.
.
.
do you have a place like this where you go to get some quiet time?

So many tables going out this week, this one has to be one of my favorites though. subtle customizations like the 4x4 running halfway up the base instead of along the bottom add interest to me. i can already picture the meals that'll be shared around this guy 🖤

Hey friends, our next recording session for season 3 is happening tomorrow! we will be chatting with a mama and business woman who lives with an autoimmune disorder - we want to shed some light on living and mothering with chronic illness.

for the second episode, we will be speaking about the school-to-prison pipeline, restorative discipline, and the effect that one has on the other.

as part of our #thesquadwantstoknow feature, we’d love to incorporate questions from our listeners into the conversation on these topics. feel free to comment with any questions or message us. questions will be asked anonymously, unless you want us to share your name.

Today’s #heartmonth post features my adorable nephews and habits for heart healthy kids.
🌳get outside! go to the park, take a hike, ride bikes (wear a helmet!), go swimming, play catch in the yard, hula hoop – make it a family thing. try to spend an hour outside every day. schedule it to help fit in! you can also help by purchasing active toys like balls, skates, jump ropes, etc.
🕺💃can’t get outside? move inside! how about a dance party or an active game night? if you’re out and about - get in the habit of taking the stairs!
📚on that note…turn off that tv! screen time (including computers and phones too!) should be limited to less than 2 hours per day…and as close to zero as possible for kids younger than 2. when you’re watching tv – do commercial challenges. who can do the most jumping jacks!?
🧹consider active chores like walking the dog, raking leaves, vacuuming, washing the car, mowing the lawn.
🥜let’s talk food. heart healthy foods include fresh veggies, nuts, whole grains, fish, and poultry…and do not include things that are fried. processed foods or things with lots of added salt or sugar are also not our friend here. think about healthy snacks such as hummus dip, veggies, apple slices, a banana, greek yogurt, or dried fruit.
🥬involve kids in cooking, meal planning, and learn to read nutrition labels together to choose heart healthy foods. have you considered growing a garden with your kids!?
🩺get that physical exam every year – especially before sports season starts.
🤣fight stress. get enough sleep, laugh, let things go, serve others, make art, read a book, listen to music.

what are your favorite heart-healthy tips for kids?

Who else is walking into this week ready to go?! 💪🏼 austin had a 6 day work week so his weekend was cut a little short, but we soaked it in. a little movie watching, napping, cheeseburger sliders, the headbands game, reading new books, and dad even braved a slime activity while i started our taxes. 😝

we’re over here checking things off our list this week and continuing to prepare to make some family dreams/goals a reality! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 anyone else have an overwhelming sense sometimes that family is everything? i sure do more and more. grateful to god for our pack! #piercesonpack 🙏🏼🙌🏼

Several months ago i consciously noticed that many of those who i admire woke up early in the morning, and had a ‘morning ritual.’
.
i used to get up early and do p90x (before having kids!) but over the years and catching up on deprived sleep, i got out of that habit. i fell into a habit of rushing around like a crazy person, snapping at my husband and kids, and feeling unsettled...for most of the day!
.
recently in the past month i’ve been getting up at 5 or 5:30 - approx. a hour before my kids have to get up! i get it now - i can do my morning prayer, yoga flow, and get breakfast going before the busyness happens 🧘🏻‍♀️🌅
.
now the trick is getting this enneagram 2w3 to wind down and sleeping early enough 😉

Everyone needs a why.⁣

why do we get out of bed each day?⁣

why do we eat healthy?⁣

why do we exercise?⁣

why do we work hard?⁣

without the why it's hard to feel motivated to do the things that will ultimately make you feel better, act better, be better.⁣

these are my whys. what are yours?⁣

comment 14 star 113 Yesterday

Not all days are great, but there is greatness in all days. these past few months have been tough, but my faith in god and his bigger picture has been renewed through it all. it has not been an easy road, and i'm still putting one foot in front of the other while having just enough light for the step i'm on. i'm so glad to say that i can at least see the light! i can feel the freedom, and it's just in my reach. here's to renewed faith, renewed freedom, and the growing light that is invading and destroying the darkness. .

It was an honor to make these cakes for an amazingly strong and determined woman. one of the white velvet cakes was filled with lemon curd, and the other with raspberry filling. a rich chocolate cake filled with peanut butter buttercream completed the trio. happy birthday, ms. p! 💙

Channeling my inner mr. rodgers and sipping champagne on the couch in my sweater... hold on. okay, i'm now being told in fact that mr. rodgers didn't sip champagne on a couch, but the sweater part is correct. whatever, happy sunday? 🍾 🧶
