#momlife or #toddlermomlife…

This morning I realized there is a difference between #momlife and #toddlermomlife. 

We woke up early , Tuesday and Thursday are our early mornings because right now as I’m building my business I am still working one of those 9-5 jobs [Except mine is really 7:30-5:30]. We were all dressed and eating as my toddler decided SHE wants me to take MY jacket off ! 

I was chilly and let’s be honest , I didn’t want to take my jacket off , but if any of you have a headstrong toddler you know that sometimes we MUST pick and choose our battles . So yes,I took my jacket off to satisfy her so I could finish getting ready for work. 

I walked into my room and put my jacket back on …[hoping she would have forgotten about her jacket obsession]. WRONG , she ran into my room all happy and excited , “mommy mommy- ” then she saw me . She saw ME wearing MY jacket . 😭😭😭 ” Nooooo jacket off!” . 

Wow… Yes I took MY jacket off again and stayed cold until it warmed up . The things us mommas do for our babies ..


Diffusers are the new [plug-ins]


That’s right, you guessed it! I replaced ALL of my plug-ins with 3 Young Living Essential Oil diffusers! [I did have 4, but during the flood one fell and broke] No worries though, most normal people would only need 1 or 2 diffusers in their home to be completely satisfied [let’s remember my smell good/plug-in addiction – hence the 4 diffusers].

I LOVE my diffusers!! My entire home smells amazing with just a little water and a few drops of ANY oil I pick! I think my favorite thing about the diffusers is that I can change the scents every day. I have certain oils I diffuse at night,and others I diffuse during the day, depending on my mood [or our mood as a family]. It’s amazing how diffusing oil can completely change the energy of the entire household.

As parents, my husband and I are dealing with teen girl hormones and terrible twos [we have a 13 year old and a two year old- both girls]. My point is, I diffuse an oil to get rid of “cranky pants”, and I diffuse an oil to clean the air [especially if there is something going around or if we are just getting over a sickness]. Sometimes I diffuse an oil to help with energy [especially if I’m cleaning or cooking], and every.single.night. I diffuse oils to help us all wind down and sleep better.

I have so many different combinations of oils I use to diffuse, and I am constantly trying new ones! I have saved my family so much money [let’s be honest those plug-ins aren’t cheap!], but most importantly I can breathe deep know the air is clean [plus it always smells amazing and the essential oils I diffuse in our home are beneficial to the mind and body].

Below are some of my favorite diffuser combos and what I use them for, if you have some of your own please share them! I am always trying new combinations, the possibilities are endless when it comes to essential oils!


This combo is diffused in the nursery every.single.night. This has helped Ava wind down, rest, fall asleep, and stay asleep every.single.night. [don’t get me wrong, we have sleepless nights every now and then – but this combo has been such a life saver!!]
This is my newest combo for when I need a little pick me up [especially if I’m cleaning or cooking] This lemongrass smells so clean and the EN-R-GEE gives me that boost I need to get things done!
Everynight I diffuse Ceaderwood+Lavender, it helps me relax, quiet my mind, and fall asleep. [Recently I started to add Bergamont, which smells SO fresh amazing!!]
This is one of my *FAVORITES* right now! I diffuse this when we are hanging around the house relaxing. [this is not a beach smell, it is tropical island – SO MUCH BETTER]
2 drops of each in my diffuser…goodbye cranky pants!

I’m ready to replace my plug-ins with diffusers!!

Thanks for reading!!
