We are the small town Simpsons. . ⠀⠀ We live in a small town in Nebraska. Go big red. (Couldn’t resist). . ⠀⠀ I’m a teacher who loves sports, binging, her family, and eating lounge food. Nathan works at a bank in town and loves anything sports and crime shows. . ⠀⠀ Our kids are perfect. Just kidding. One has an attitude and still can’t wipe her bottom. The other? Still poops his pants and doesn’t sleep through the night. 😂. . ⠀⠀ This is a good picture to sum us up. In lounging clothes. Cuddled up on the couch. Giggles. Tickles. Some tears. . ⠀⠀ Who are you? Tell me! I love meeting new people. #smalltownfamily #candidchildhood #candidmotherhood #smalltownlife #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #momminainteasy #mommingsohard #dadsofinstagram #daddysgirl #mommysboy #ourfamily

Snowpocalypse:: Day 9 of no school - Brunch at our favorite spot in town ✅. Laughed our bums off at the movie theater ✅. Now we paint and puzzle while we finish the last Harry Potter movie. ((It took all 9 days but we made it through the series.)) this break has been so so fun. If I never see a snowflake again for 2 years I’ll be so so happy. 🤣❄️

This season of life has been all about learning to be efficient with my time and focusing on daily goals, but also learning to let go and savor slow moments. I have spent countless hours in the little room with Hudson, focused on him and the time we have together at this sweet stage. • • • • • #motherhood #momlife #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #childhoodunplugged #parenthood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #parenting #mumlife #momswithcameras #letthekids #dailyparenting #mama #momsofinstagram #littleandbrave #mother #momtogs #pregnancy #maternity #clickinmoms #ig_motherhood #momblogger #mommylife #mommyblogger #vscomom #postpartum #boymom

Late last night, I lay awake in my bed, quietly reading a new book. As my eyes trailed across this sentence, something inside me awoke. Something too important not to share... “Find your identity in something that cannot be stripped away in a moment, but instead do the hard work of reminding yourself that your value comes from who you are”. . Immediately, I heard a song and was compelled to look closely at the words that swirled inside my head . [You unravel me. With a melody. You surround me with a song...] I switched positions upon reading this. I moved to my knees, next to my bed and I dug in. I could feel myself unraveling, but not in an out-of-control or senseless manner. Instead, an unraveling like a trail spread before me filled with clarity and understanding. [Of deliverance, from my enemies. Til all my fears are gone.] I grabbed my journal and began to scribble things down. Things that poured out of my soul... What are my enemies? The things that confine me, currently define me or hold me back? What are my fears? The things that overwhelm me, currently defeat me or cause me to flee from the good that lies ahead? I sat quietly, on my knees beside my bed and declared that those things could take hold no longer. That those things are not who I am. [I’m no longer a slave to fear. I am a child of God. I’m no longer a slave to fear. I am a child of God.] My worth comes from who I am and who’s I am. I challenge you to do the same. To unravel the things that bind you. The enemies. The fears. And I challenge you to discover who you are. To know your worth so deeply that if everything else was stripped away, you could still stand, in perfect confidence that you have immeasurable, unshakeable value. Excerpt from the book: “Chop Wood, Carry Water” by Joshua Medcalf Song: “No Longer a Slave” by Bethel Music ☼

Today has been [ h e c t i c ] as we’re prepping to move — we have a few days until we can move into our new place and we have a couple of days to move out of this place all while my husband is busy training all hours of the day/night this week 😅 I’m definitely at least a bit over whelmed and anxious. We still have yet to sign our new lease ( but the home has been reserved for us ) so I’m also a bit worried because of that. • Buuttt, we took time to get out of the house && ended up taking the long way to post. As we drove we had the windows down, and music “blasting” (loud enough to enjoy and jam out to but also not too loud for the babe), I felt an almost overwhelming feeling of peace, gratitude, and Heavenly Father reminding me it’s going to be okay. I was reminded how beautiful life is even when it all feels like too much. I used to love driving with the windows down and blasting music with Jacob when we were dating. It reminded me of those days. • My worries aren’t gone for this weekend and probably won’t be until this weekend is over but I know that it’ll all work out. Life always tend to work out and God is always in the details ❤️ it’s so important to take a step back and breathe. Take a moment. Our problems, anxieties, worries etc may be there for a while and that’s okay, but we can take a breath and know that everything works out. Enjoy the small moments of calm and remember that you have an almighty God who loves you and has your best interest in mind ❤️ • • • #motherhoodunplugged #takeamoment #takeabreath #pregnancy #analmightyGod #latterdaysaintmama #latterdaysaintfamily #christianfamily #christianblogger #anxietyanddepression #mentalhealthawareness #anxietyawareness #armyfamily #armywifeproud #armywifeblogger #boymama #loveofamother #mymotherhoodjourney

After we transitioned Truth our of the Snoo, for a few weeks Truth was been sleeping in a mini crib in our room. I got tired of moving his sound machine from his room to ours since he always napped in his crib so for a while I was using the Snoo as a sound machine. And now that he sleeps AND naps in his own crib that’s in his room, where does that leave the Snoo? It’s been siting next to our bed forever. And I kept thinking, but why is it so hard saying goodbye to the Snoo? It’s been there for me in a way no one else could. 🤗 We actually had 2 Snoo bassinets up until a few weeks ago, on for upstairs and one for downstairs. Months went by since Truth has used the Snoo for naps so that one went to my best friend. Her son is 4 months younger than Truth. That wasn’t so hard, but now parting with this last Snoo is just so sad. 😭 * * * * #6monthsold#momsofinstagram#livethelittlethings#nursery#motherhoodunplugged#babyboy#igbaby#babiesofinstagram#instababy#instagrambaby#babiesbeingbabies#babyswag#nurseryinspo#nurserydesign#babyboysroom#babyboynursery#happiestbaby#snoo#snooBassinet

Morning bike rides with Dad 💜 As I get heavier, less mobile and more waddle-y with this pregnancy 🤣 (full pubic symphysis separation 🤦‍♀️) , these three are loving having Dad home to keep up with the more physical stuff (me too 🙌). This is totally foreign to me this time round as I coped physically really easily with my first pregnancy and the twin pregnancy. I’m actually super surprised how early I am feeling uncomfortable?!

Every year I make a resolution to stop doing something. This year it has been to stop drinking soda and live a healthier lifestyle, watch what I eat, and be a little bit more mindful of what I’m actually putting into my body. I think I was drinking a can of soda with every meal and it was really affecting my mood and my skin. As a healthy alternative I started to drink @way2byou It’s an all natural flavored water that helps my immune and digestive system, supports weight management, and is low on sugar. I can definitely see a difference! #way2Byou • • • • #visualcontent #brandsupporter #brandenthusiast #creativecontent #smallshop #smallshopsupporter #canont7i #brand #bocaratoninfluencer #bocaratonbloggers #bocablogger #motherhoodunplugged #southernmama #beautyinfluencer #onlineinfluencer #bocaphotoblogger #emberliv #mamarazzi #travelblogger#contentcreator#kidsfashion#bocaratonblogger#magicofchildhood#photoblogger#southfloridablogger @apexdropofficial

Daddy had the day off today so we had a family day and took Kinsley to her first movie! As I usually do with everything, I expected the worst lol. She skipped her nap 3 times last week, so we took the chance and decided to see a 12:30 showing. My fear was either she’d get overtired and have a loud meltdown halfway through or that she’d be over sitting still and want to climb everywhere. To my surprise, we had no meltdowns and she sat still all the way up until the last 20 minutes, to which she just wanted to stand in the chair or lay on her belly, which was fine because we went with the recliner seats. Wes and I both absolutely loved watching her! She sang along to the songs, giggled at Olaf and thought the theatre was the coolest thing ever, because it had a huge tv and tiny lights that stayed on when it got dark. 😂 My favorite part was watching her reactions to the movie itself. Her biggest downfall — all the questions. “Mom, where is Elsa going?” Mom, what are those lights? Mom, what happened to Olaf?” Thankfully, it was a kid’s movie, so of course, there were plenty of other little ones there doing the same. She has an Elsa dress up dress and an Ana one at home, so I let her decide what she wanted to wear. She ended up in just her Ana cape with Olaf socks on. It was such a fun day with her! Glad my expectations weren’t met. 😂 Peep my stories to see a couple more snaps of this cheesy, little face!

“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” ⁣ -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.⁣ ⁣ In our country, where everything seems so divisive, people are hesitant to reach out to someone who may be different.⁣ ⁣ Conversations are too difficult.⁣ ⁣ In these tricky times, it’s hard to know what to say. ⁣ ⁣ How to respond.⁣ ⁣ People seem so easily offended,⁣ so we stop trying to understand each other. ⁣ ⁣ We cling to those who think like us. ⁣ Those who share our beliefs. ⁣ Those in our political party. ⁣ Those who look like us. ⁣ ⁣ In the process, we close the others out.⁣ ⁣ The inability to share space with people when it is the slightest bit uncomfortable, cements the gap. ⁣ ⁣ Underneath the “other side” are amazing people that we are cutting ourselves off from. ⁣ ⁣ We all have so much to offer.⁣ ⁣ There is so much more that we have in common than the things that separate us. ⁣ ⁣ When we tune out the hate and the divisiveness that seems so loud, we remember that we are all people who need each other.⁣ ⁣ We live in a divided country. ⁣ ⁣ We have so much information and so much communication, but we have never felt less understood. ⁣ ⁣ We tighten our circle to only include those who share our beliefs, and we push everyone else out.⁣ ⁣ Systems are rigid. Politics are stale. ⁣ ⁣ But people - people are built in the image of love.⁣ ⁣ Individuals were made to walk through life together. ⁣ ⁣ The world needs more individuals willing to pull up a chair, and have tough conversations.⁣ ⁣ People willing to listen, even when we don’t agree.⁣ ⁣ People willing to love, even when it takes work.⁣ ⁣ People who celebrate progress, without demanding perfection. ⁣ ⁣ I want to live my life loving my God, and loving people.⁣ ⁣ In a time where everyone is quick to sling comebacks, cut downs and agendas, I want to understand your heart. ⁣ ⁣ We have come a long way, but is so much to be done. ⁣ ⁣ The conversations will be awkward and the work will be difficult, but I believe it will be worth it.

Gosh I just love him 💜 Now that I have a newborn my 2 1/2 year old feels like a giant! So far he has been such a sweet big brother. He always wants to help, hold her, and wishes she would play with him already! Juggling my time between both has been really hard though. I feel constantly guilty when he wants my attention as I’m nursing her as I can’t just get up whenever he needs anymore. Hoping we will find our routine, and I can spend some one on one time with him. Days just go by too fast. #motherhoodunplugged #momlife #momoftwo

Como está começando o 2020 de vocês? Por aqui, está sendo de muita leveza, verdade e propósito! 2019 foi um caminho intenso e difícil.Foi o ano que colocamos nossas vidas, carreiras e futuro em perspectiva. Foi o ano das perguntas e o ano da respostas. O ano de deixar ciclos que já haviam terminado e abrir as portas para o novo. Nesse caminho tortuoso, a vida nos emitiu sinais claros de que mais do que nunca, é hora de vivermos plenamente aquilo que acreditamos. Foi um processo de reflexão, auto consciência, aceitação e coragem! Porque é preciso muita coragem para sair da zona de conforto e traçar um novo caminho, para viver a vida que você quer e fazer o que é certo para você, mesmo que pareça loucura para os outros. A vida é linda porque é assim, tormenta e calmaria, altos e baixos.. uma nova página em branco todo dia. Ela é feita pra se arriscar! Tudo é um ganho, é história e aprendizado. 2020 é o ano de se jogar de corpo, alma e coração leve. Vamos com medo, mas com uma vontade muito maior de viver o que sempre sonhamos e queremos para os nossos filhos. De ser exatamente quem somos, na nossa própria jornada rumo ao desconhecido.

So it’s nice after having a busy morning to be able to just chill, drink coffee, get some work done and enjoy the quiet. Even if it’s just for a short time.

DIY valentine melted heart crayons 🖍✨ 💗 take your old/broken crayons and peel the paper off 💗 break them up into small pieces and place them into a silicone mold (we used one that had heart shapes), you can also use a muffin pan but make sure to use a cooking spray beforehand so they won’t stain the pan 💗 add glitter 💗 set oven to 250 degrees and put them in for about 6-7 minutes to melt 💗 let them cool off a bit and then place them in the freezer for about an hour SO fun!

“It’s good to be bored” I can’t even recall how many times I heard that as a kid, but if I had to guess it would be ALOT. My mom praised me for being a really independent child, playing contently by myself most days and using my imagination in ways she couldn’t believe. I actually remember it well. That imagination didn’t come from going to play dates and bounce houses every day, or mommy and me classes every week. It didn’t come from having so many toys that my parents had to store half of them away so I wouldn’t get tired of them all at once. It came from being bored and doing something about it. . Now hear me out...I’m not talking about a silent, dull, non stimulating bored here, and I’m certainly not trying to paint a “Tiny Tim” childhood for myself; we had plenty of toys and music and games, but my mom kept it simple and we played at home 90% of the time. I can remember her flipping the coffee table over and I’d sit inside and draw or play with dolls while she had a minute of peace or tidied the house or got dinner ready. I remember teaching myself how to make patterns and sew clothes. Building forts in my room and rearranging my furniture was fun. Collecting sticks for a campfire was fun. Building jumps for my bike was FUN. It was literally that simple, and I loved every minute of it. We weren’t given an itinerary of activities everyday because she wanted us to use our minds and figure out what we wanted to be doing on our own. Maybe that was how she was raised, or maybe it’s that even just 30 years ago there wasn’t a standard set as to how many “fun filled” activities you must squeeze into a weeks time. . I just don’t think a childhood is made by going non stop, I truly believe it’s made by having to create fun when it’s not handed to you. So I guess if you chose “yes” in my poll and you feel pressured into doing something with your child all the time, remember one of my fondest memories was sitting in a coffee table with a pad and pencil and I wouldn’t have it any other way. . . .

I guess you could say we’re old fashion. He works hard outside the home, I work hard inside the home. As parents, our kids learn respect + responsibility at an early age + there’s consequences if they don’t. We eat around the table together as a family every night, we say our prayers before bed. For so long I’ve been trying to go against the grain and try to make things happen and feeling so frustrated at the resistance I was experiencing + now I realize that it was God who kept reminding me OVER and OVER again - “Marisa, not now..I’ve set you on a path that you need to focus on right now”- so now, I’m just surrendering. I’m listening. I’m walking in faith + what’s is meant to be will be, and when the time is right he will open another door for me but right now, my family needs me now more than anything. Present, undistracted, clear minded, focused + calm 💕 #motherhoodunplugged #momofgirls #girlmomma #girlmomlife #motherhood #realmotherhood

All kinds of obsessed with this sweet maternity photoshoot 😍 the beach has slowly but surely become my favorite place to have sessions. Something about the line where the sky meets the sea...it calls me 😉 I’m definitely gonna have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day. Have a happy Monday y’all!

I realize that I am never truly without. I am not without time, love, patience, freedom, gratitude, and did I mention love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s just a matter of recognizing it. It’s why I’ve been keeping a journal more often than before. It’s why I take a moment in the morning just to be grateful. It’s why I’ll use the @happynotperfect app to start my day. It’s why I tell people I love them just because.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everything I need in the present moment; I have.
