Do you need to establish a better routine?

Is your morning routine less than ideal? I can relate! I’ve found that in order to have a good morning routine, it really starts in the evening before. I’ve written before on how rough the mornings can be around here. Our school year has already started, and I already have quite a few stories on how crazy our days are if we don’t have a good morning.

Create a good routine with the Make Over Your Morning Course!

However what I’ve been focusing on even more is our evening routine. If we go to bed and the house is a mess, it makes our morning routine so much harder. The children all have chores to do each morning, but instead of waking up to a sink full of dirty dinner dishes, it takes far less time to just put away the clean dishes in the dishwasher in the morning, and load up the breakfast dishes.

What gave me a good reminder on the importance of evening routine, was watching the Make Over Your Evening videos that Crystal Paine has put together. It’s so encouraging without pouring guilt on you for where you are at in life!


Some of my evenings goals:

  • Get to bed before midnight! Seriously. Even 11:00 would make me happy right now!
  • Go to bed with a clean bedroom. My husband would adore me for this.
  • Have the children in bed by their bedtime, which is 8:30.
  • Spend 30 minutes with Sean after the children are in bed.
  • Have my clothes picked out the night before!
  • Read my scriptures and say a prayer every night before bed!

I’m looking forward to finishing the Make Over Your Evening course, and I’m going to keep working towards my goals!

If you need help with your morning or evening goals, the Make Over Your Mornings course, or the Make Over Your Evenings course is on sale for just $10 each, regularly $17 each!

Or you can grab both of them for $17! When you check out for one of them, you will be given the option to add the other course to your cart. This is a great deal, and Crystal doesn’t run very many sales on these courses!

Modest Monday and Link Up!

If you can’t find me this week, I’m a little distracted watching the Olympics. 🙂 It’s the first time our family has:

1. Had a tv in our house to watch it on.

2. Been able to get a reception to the Olympics, because we don’t have Cable or any special channels. And up until last year we didn’t have a way to get any tv channels at all. Living in the hometown of the Royals with two boys who love baseball changed that part. 😉

It’s been so fun! We obviously don’t watch all of it, due to modesty issues, but it’s been a refreshing break for our family to just sit together and take a break from a crazy busy life, and enjoy cheering on the USA teams together. Let me know if your family is watching as well!

I’m wearing another favorite outfit, a LulaRoe maxi skirt, with a shirt from Kohls!


Mommy moment here – this was the first time I’ve curled my hair in a week. I don’t always have makeup on or my hair curled! I’ve been really tired this week, so it’s been a pretty basic week with no extras when it comes to my clothes.


What I Wore

Skirt – Maxi skirt from LulaRoe

Shirt – Kohls

Flexi Clip – Peacock Flexi from Lilla Rose

Makeup –  Foundation and Mascara – L’BRI Pure and Natural

Modest Monday and a Link Up!

Saturday our whole family ran or walked a 5K together. It was SO much fun! I went ahead and did it super last minute (like 5 minutes before it actually started I was in the line to walk, determined to go ahead and try). I ended up having all 4 of the girls with me, as Sean was running with his brother and our 2 boys ran together ahead of them. I pushed the double stroller, and we made it! Even Deborah (who is 4) was running, she was out of the stroller probably ¾ of the race!

We loved doing it together as a family, and I’m hoping to do at least one more 5K this year. I’m so motivated when I’m in a huge group of people.

For a different outfit post, I thought I would show you what a workout outfit for me looks like!

I’m wearing the modest athletic skirt we sell at Deborah & Co. along with a workout shirt I just got at T.J.Maxx. This skirt is super comfy, it’s great to run, walk, do cardio workouts, and I’m pretty sure it will be great to swim in!


If you love to workout, this is a fantastic option! I love knowing that I don’t really stand out in the crowd. While I’m not wearing quite what everyone else is, this still looks like workout clothes, and it has the same fabric as normal workout clothes. It just has the right length and flow to it!

I would love to know what you wear to workout or run in!

What I Wore

Skirt – Athletic Skirt from Deborah & Co.

Shirt – T.J.Maxx

Headband – Deborah & Co.

(I don’t normally wear this to run in, it’s more of a cute everyday hairstyle look!)
