Celebrate Motherhood with Dove

“Post sponsored by Mirum. Opinions are 100% my own.”

Dear Mom, Mother, Ma Ma, Hero-

Are you there? Are you under that pile? The heap of laundry, sink with dirty dishes. Are you also trying to justify that the cost of electricity is why the vacuum hasn’t been run? You may also be going for the lived-in look.

Do you also scroll through social media for home improvement ideas knowing you have no real plans of improving your home until you get a handle on the taxis driving, homework help, cooking, cleaning, advice giving, refereeing, playroom debris, and most important when did they take a bath?

Do you know you aren’t alone? It may feel like you are the only one climbing the hill only to be pushed down it wearing roller skates. You haven’t skated in years, but here you go again and again the wind in your hair. You hope for a soft tree to slam into or a patch of grass. You know not every day is like this one, so you squeeze your eyes shut and repeat “They are only little once, and I love them but I wish I weren’t so excited that they learned to talk because I didn’t know how good I had it before.” You laugh because if they couldn’t talk, then you couldn’t hear your favorite words. The ones that mean the most “I Love you, mom.” You know no matter what they will always be the words that make your heart smile.

I reach for the phone often to check in with my army of mom friends. We are all in this battle together. The one where we try to balance our needs with theirs. The one where we try to make sure they have everything we did and more. The sleepless nights the guilt that washes over us only to be erased by your friends saying it happened to me, but it was much worse. The solace you find in knowing that you aren’t alone.

I want you to know this post is for you. It is your fight song your light at the end of the tunnel. It is your reminder that not only are you enough you are perfect just the way you are.
You see our hands are full but are our hearts are fuller.

We are filled with tasks and lists upon lists, but love isn’t the chore.

Our memory is fleeting, but the memories we make will sustain us through a lifetime.

We will lift one another up. We will drive one another’s kids. We will be the voice of reason when everyone else is not behaving reasonably. We will support one another, listen to one another, and encourage one another to try our best and some days are sitting in a closet hiding is not only reasonable but needed.

We will let one another know that our kids do not know what perfect is. They do not care. They have nothing to compare us to, and if they did, we would win. We will go into to battle together and enjoy the victory. We will celebrate, cry, and complain but above all we will march on.

To all the moms out there. You’ve got this! You are doing this. You can do this. You will do this. You deserve that moment to reconnect. You need that voice on the other line. You need to pamper yourself not just for “Mother’s Day” but on every day because let’s face it with you there isn’t order, plan, goals, a schedule.

I encourage you to pay it forward, call you a friend, offer support, an ear to listen, and positive word, share a story of your not so perfect moment. Let her know you care.

I did just that for someone in my life I went to Rite Aid. I took advantage of their buy one get 50% off of Dove Products, and I made a fellow warrior a gift basket. I let her know she is valuable, instrumental, incredible, and all of that and a bag of chips.Continue reading

Mothers Day Gifts Ideas Under $10

Mothers Day Gifts Ideas

Mothers Day Gifts Ideas

Did you know the best Mothers Day Gifts Ideas cost under $10?  Yes, it’s true!

Mother’s Day is fast approaching.  In fact, my husband and daughter just left for a quick trip to the store without me.  That usually means they are heading out in search of something FOR me.  If you are like me, this coming Sunday is a day to celebrate motherhood.  The day doesn’t have to involve expensive gifts or fancy meals.  In fact, the most memorable Mother’s Day presents I ever received were the ones which were homemade and filled with sentiments from my husband and children.

I am perfectly content to quietly celebrate Mother’s Day in the comfort of our home (sans the housework, of course).  Here’s a few of my favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas for under $10:Continue reading

Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love

Get 15% OFF ALL PRI products… Plus FREE SHIPPING on with code Bee15

There was a time when my feet walked through sand whose grains were as fine as silk. There was a time I wore heels that were tall, delicate, and the envy of all. There were times when I would sneak into the spa and enjoy body scrubs from head to toe. There were times when I could read a book without pictures. That was before all this happened.

It started 14 years ago, the decline of my me time. It began in a Chinese restaurant of all places. I had just had a cup of tea saying a spot of tea in a Chinese restaurant doesn’t sound correct. I had just ordered, and then I had to go to the ladies room. I excused myself. I began to cry. I am not sure why I was crying. The tea had appeared and my day was going well. I was having lunch with the love of my life, my husband but I couldn’t stop crying. I knew then and there what was wrong but I needed to see for sure.

I rushed to the store, and I grabbed the test. I took the test and just like I did in school. I passed with flying colors or in this case a red line. We were having a baby. I can’t describe how happy I was, but I can tell you it was better news than thinking I lost my mind. I mean who cries over tea at a Chinese restaurant. That was the day my life changed. I began to live for my child. I gave up the fancy things in life so he could have a perfect life but I never gave up my desire to be pampered. I just had to make it fit in my budget.

That is how I came to make body scrubs. These are some Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love!

Pamper yourself by having a spa in your home. Check out these homemade body scrub recipes you'll love.

Once you buy the Manuka Honey Oil in Almond Oil you can use it in other ways.

PRI Manuka Oil from New Zealand is very gentle and can be used straight from the bottle for its antibacterial properties. It is a natural antiseptic suitable for the whole family (and pets) to use. It also has a wide range of antifungal activity. The difference from its Australian cousin Tea Tree Oil is that is has a pleasant aroma and will not burn or irritate the skin. Therapeutic Action Manuka Oil has been shown to be effective when used as an: antibacterial agent, antifungal and as an anti-inflammatory.

Manuka Oil has been shown to aid as an external application for treatment of: Abrasions — skin, abscess, acne, bed sores, blisters, boils, burns, carbuncles, cold sores, cracked skin, dandruff, dermatitis, ears and body-pierced infections, eczema, nail and fungal infections, insect bites, lice, ringworm, rhinitis skin-oily, sun burn, tinea, tonsillitis.

Suspended in an almond oil base, this highly purified essential oil has a unique floral note and high levels of active compounds to use for sore joints and inflammation. It is often used as a massage oil for lower back pain in pregnant women.
