MORE Kids?!?

I seem to get this question a lot. From those who know us, its usually asked and followed with a "you'll have more". From those who don't know us its with a bit of… how shall I say, judgmental skeptic tone? haha!! and then there are those you genuinely are just curious of "when do you feel done?"
I feel like it's been a process, and before baby #4 we did not feel complete…and I always had that longing for more. Is that feeling gone? not completely. 
I am sad, definitely going through the process of mourning the thought of not having any more kids, eventually not having a baby in the house and no longer needing to go down the baby aisle. I think I am sad that-that phase of my life is over. That as a woman, I was able to carry, deliver and nourish a baby from my body and understanding that it won't happen again is sad to me. Babies are miracles. Absolute miracles. Our bodies are miracles. I still can't wrap my head around the whole thing, BUT back to my point. Knowing that-that part of my life and body is over is kind of sad. Sad, but also exciting. We get to go into the next phase of life. We can go camping, We won't need diapers, we will sleep better at night…and we get to watch our little ones develop and grow. Which in itself is exciting, freeing and scary all in one too.
So my answer is, we are complete.
Our family has each perfect component it needs. and we are happy. 
God has blessed us and we are thankful. 
(did I mention I was told I couldn't have kids?!)

All Time Favorite Beauty Products

These are some products that have been tried and true. I have not found any products that live up to these, maybe some of them will become some of your favorites too!

August Boxy Charm

I'm gonna make a crazy statement here and say that Boxy Charm is my favorite beauty box. Yup. I said it. It far outdoes any other box. for $21/month you get 5 full sized products. did ya hear that FULL SIZED products, not some dinky samples you can get walking through the mall…and they are products that I would actually want, but maybe not want to spend the full retail for. 

Get your boxy charm here!

Aquarium of the Pacific

We took a little family trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific and had so much fun! Watch the video below to see our trip (vlogging on the go is much harder than it looks, but I need to capture these moments so I can remember the kids this little… why are they growing so fast?!?! oh and yes, the battery died too. I'm taking notes for next time!)

Thank you so much to the Aquarium of the Pacific for having us come visit, our kids had such a great time. Love that ocean breeze too!

Click to watch, enjoy!
