Raw balms

December 8, 2015

Seriously ladies, this chilly weather has my skin begging for some extra moisture! Unfortunately it has made me eczema go for mild to severe, like to where I can't sleep at night because it's so uncomfortable!

But I have an amazing cousin who is extremely knowledgeable about all natural products that she has created one just to target eczema! 

She makes what she likes to call "RAW BALMS", literally yummy food for your skin, she has a breathe balm, like all all natural Vicks vapor rub, and sleep balm to help you get over those restless nights, but my favorite is the eczema balm! As I said before she Uses all natural ingredients and essential oils! After two days of applying to my eczema problem areas I had instant relief! I don't find my self scratching through out the day, it smells good, my skin is getting softer, yes the balm has magic healing powers, and it's even safe for my babies!

Tis The Season

December 3, 2015

We love love love supporting our local business', and there is no excuse when it comes to getting our Christmas tree!

We always go to a local Christmas tree farm, when its nice and cold out! We bundle up and start the hunt for the perfect tree! We always have every intention of finding the perfect tree to chop down ourselves, but we can never quiet find the right one, and we seem to go on the COLDEST night and are ready to find our tree and get warm, so we find a precut one (i like the needles on the precut ones better)

This year the hubs gave me the thumbs up on getting a flocked tree, since i ask EVERY YEAR, but little princess ri wanted a green one, so of course I gave in!

Anyways we found the PERFECT tree and I LOVE IT!

The next night ri and I baked cookies, we watched Elf, drank hot chocolate and decorated our tree!

I love these little moments the most with my family!

Well Hudson, totally took more ornaments of then he put on, but hey it makes for good memories :)

Happy December y'all!

The best cards ever.

August 5, 2015

My little man is about to turn 1 in September! So let the birthday planning begin! I've been pinning away and narrowed down the theme to camping/outdoors and I cannot wait to get everything together :)
 I love planning parties for my favorite little people! One of my favorite things to do for any  occasion is any excuse to pick out  Minted.com invites! 
(If you haven't looked on minted check it out! It's a bunch of creative artists, lots of them are stay at home moms, that create these designs, so you can get cool, great quality cards and support other mamas out there, I call that a double win!) 

I literally have to start looking weeks in advance (because they are all that good) and start "hearting" my favorites! It's getting down to the wire, so here are my top 3 picks! 
I think I know which one will be the winner!

10 random facts about me

August 3, 2015

I know that you don't know much about me considering I'm still new to this whole thing but I figured what better way to start introducing myself by rambling 10 random facts about me:

 1.i am currently stuck at this point in my life where I want to be successful in a career, but just can't give up precious time with my kids to pursue it.
2. Pink and sparkly gold are my favorite colors.
3. I never wear matching socks, so much so that I don't even think I could find matching socks in my drawer if I tried.
4. I love soda and candy, my sweet tooth is pretty much uncontrollable.
5. I am extremely unorganized, but pretend to be (although I know I fool no one)
6. I am an excuse maker
7. I actually really enjoy to cook, and am not too bad at it either.
8. I hoard my kids clothes because I don't want to accept how big they are getting.
9. I have severe road rage.
10. I have always wanted to be a mommy, since forever (random embarrassing fact; I played with dolls until I was probably 14)

I actually enjoy partaking in these 10 random facts because I always am interest to document the first 10 things that pop into my mind, and which ones remain the same each time I do it, and which things change!

Girl Date

August 1, 2015

Ri and I have a very close mommy daughter bond, I wouldn't change for the world! I feel guilty often because some days I feel like she just needs some one on one mommy time. So when we have the chance to do something together,, one of our stops is the nail salon! Ri is your typical girly girl, with a hint of tom boy, that loves getting her nails painted! She goes straight to the nail polish and picks out one plain color and one "sparkly " one, they always match by the way!  Anyways, I am grateful for the hour of mommy daughter time we get, and can't wait for many years to come. I hope  and pray that it's a bond that will never be broken.  I love this little girl of mine, to the moon and then some.

Let's Give This Another Shot

July 31, 2015

I started this blog almost 2 years ago now with the intentions of consistently being active in writing and taking some "me time" each day. I wanted to document memories with my family and write about what made me feel good, and what made me happy. But for some reason it just didn't click.

It caused me more stress. I was writing things, and deleting. It wasn't enjoyable, it was a burden. Not that I was totally active In writing or anything I just became overwhelmed with it figured, this just wasn't for me! (and as you can tell my blog layout needs some serious help. Ha.)

Well now time has past, life as blossomed and I want to give this another shot. I'm sitting here writing this with such a sense of calm and relaxation. This, is something that I've wanted to do for myself for quiet sometime now and hey, you have to start somewhere. So right now at 11:14pm it is.

So here it goes

 I'm Kayla

Mom of 2
Wife to Brad

Family is EVERYTHING! We live in a little town. We work hard. We love each other. We enjoy the simple things and the not so simple things at times. We laugh. We learn. We know we aren't perfect. We are just living this life one day, one hour, one minute, one second at a time and it's just right.



A year older.

December 12, 2013

Birthday's usually have no affect on me, or my outlook on life, for some reason this year's did. Yesterday I turned 24! I feel that I have been going through many life changes lately, not big ones just little things, mostly feelings. Yesterday made them more official, it was an epiphany of some sort. As my husband and I relaxed in the living room enjoying the Christmas tree and the warmth of the heater in silence I was able to express to him what I want the years to come to mean to me, to our family.

I used to be so obsessed with the little pointless things in life. I let things overwhelm me that shouldn't, would stress over the gifts I would be getting, what outfit I would wear, and who would be celebrating my special day with.  Though, those things are somewhat important(who i would be celebrating with) this year they just didn't seem to matter. I could care less what people gave me as a gift, heck I told everyone I didn't even want or need anything. I didn't even have anything to ask for this year. All I wanted was to go to dinner with my little family, of course I had a grumpy little babe so it just ended up being the hubby and I but it was all I needed. It was perfect. 

I have realized that I want to live a simple life. A life filled with happiness and joy. The things that make me feel that way are not materialistic at all. Its my family. They truly make me happy. I don't want to stress about how much money I make, what car I drive, or what materialist things I have. Although I do enjoy having nice things, I mean who doesn't, I just don't want them to be a priority. I told my Hubby I want to focus on our relationship, our daughter, and living the life we want to live. We are going to set goals, realistic ones and support each other to achieve them. 

I feel an overwhelming sense of calmness. I can't even describe. I just know this will be a good year, and many more to come. I will sit back, relax more often, laugh, be silly, and enjoy the precious moments in life as my family grows together. I feel truly happy and fulfilled. I'm sure turning 24 had nothing to do with just, it just came at the same time where I am maturing and turning into the woman, mommy, and wife I want to be.
