It’s been a lovely week! I’ve been exhausted still from being sick, but overall I’ve had a great week. Some weeks with the children are very long and tiring, but this week was sweet and so encouraging!

My mom always said that the attitude of the mother is what reflects the whole attitude of the home. If mama isn’t happy, nobody is happy! It was true this week. I was super relaxed and happy all week, teasing and giving plenty of hugs to the children all week. It was amazing, we hardly had any quarreling all week long! They were happy and we all had a wonderful week. I’m really hoping it continues!

I’m wearing a dress from Stitch Fix and a cardigan from Kohls. I’m getting a new Stitch Fix box in the mail next week and I can’t wait to see what I get!

What I Wore

Dress – Stitch Fix Box

Cardigan – Kohls

Necklace – JCPenny

Shoes – Zulily 

Flexi Clip – Lilla Rose

Whole 30 And How It Ended

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

March 3rd was supposed to be the end of my Whole 30 experience, but it ended a little early. I wasn’t happy about this, but Sean finally insisted. I ended up catching Influenza A and was terribly sick, laying in bed so fatigued and with a fever I could barely move. I was also nauseated and nothing sounded good. A salad was out of the question, and the only thing I was eating was applesauce and roasted sweet potatoes and apples.

Finally Sean told me just to eat, that it was important to get my strength back and I needed to eat whatever sounded good. So I ended up breaking my Whole 30, but it was the best decision for the moment.

I’m thrilled with the results I have for not even doing it a full month! I lost 10 pounds in the 2 ½ weeks that I did Whole 30! Sean can definitely notice a difference, which is really nice. 🙂 My skin cleared up, which helps me know that I’m not looking for that magic cream to get rid of breakouts, but eating clean is what will do it.

The first day I was out of bed and dressed after having the flu. Still tired looking, but I was happy to be out of bed! 

Overall it was a really positive experience. It was difficult to constantly be eating food alone, and I got tired of fixing 2 different meals at dinner time. I also was getting tired of the meals I was making and needed to find some new things to make, but that was just a matter of searching Pinterest again to find some new recipes.

I’m hoping that this helps my metabolism wake up, and that I can keep eating clean 80-90% of the time and continue to lose the rest of the weight that I wanted to lose.

I’m feeling a lot better now but I’m still really tired. I just can’t seem to get enough sleep so I haven’t been getting up early to exercise at all. I did go outside with the girls and ride bikes one day, so I’ll count that as exercise. 🙂

 

Girl’s Rainbow Denim Skirts Are Here!

It’s been a dream come true. For years now I thought how wonderful it would be to have our popular Rainbow Denim Skirt be available for girls. But it was a passing thought, in the midst of changing yet another dirty diaper and folding my 160,700 load of laundry since getting married. 😉

Last year we started running really low on our inventory of the Rainbow Maternity Skirt. It takes a lot of money to manufacture skirts and so Sean and I sat down and talked about the future of these skirts. We decided to manufacture them again, but cut out the middle man that had been involved and do it all ourselves.

I’ll tell you one thing, my life isn’t anything like what I had pictured it as a little girl. I never dreamed that I would learn how to find a good manufacture, deal with wire money transfers, customs, samples of skirts and fabrics…it’s been a little overwhelming but we have pushed through, and the skirts are almost here!!

All of the Rainbow Denim skirts are available for pre-order, and will be shipping around March 10th! Now is the time to get your order in so you can get your skirt right away!

The Girl’s Denim Skirt comes in sizes 4-14, and has plenty of room to run and be active!

Since I’m a mom of 4 girls, I knew that having adjustable waistbands in these skirts was a must! These feature those wonderful little button adjustable waistbands, so you can fit it just right on that skinny tall girl of yours. 🙂

You can Pre-Order any of the Rainbow Denim skirts through Friday and receive a discounted price! Find them here:

I’ve been really sick most of the week, so please excuse me from any outfit pictures this week. Believe me, you don’t want a picture of me this week, I’ve just been in my PJ’s all week! Sunday was the turning point for me, and I was able to start getting up out of bed more. Hurray!
