#naptimehustle baby! I got all my favorites ready to roll.... While the B-man sleeps, mama brings in the side hustle to build a future for him and his sibs. Something I never thought I’d be capable of doing! 🎉
Don’t waste another minute of your day mindlessly scrolling or watching tv. Get off your 🍑and push play on your life and get that 30 min workout in! Every single person on this earth has 24 hours in a day... it’s all about how you choose to spend it.
A workout is 2% of your day. Need some direction? I can help😘🙌🏻

St Pattys day used to be one of my favorite days, and it still is, but for totally different reasons! ☘️
As a Spartan this day used to mean waking up early, shower beers, and partying all day and through the night. 🍻
Present day: Still reppin my green and white, but with twin snuggles, coffee all day, fitting a workout in and drinking a green salad shake. .
Thinking today of how much life has changed, but how lucky I am for the blessings I have been given! 💚👶🏼👶🏼 .
It's been busy and fun!
Fun Run at the Track🏃🏼♀️
Play time at the Library with Friends📚
Check out my STORIES to see my favorite moves from today!
-Keeps the ❤️ rate up!
-Really works the Core!🤗
Have a great weekend! Enjoy the beautiful weather!🙌🏻
FYI...this pic was BEFORE I became a hot.sweaty.mess!😂😅
So my #naptimehustle was not as long as I would have hoped. My youngest is being a pill and isn’t wanting to nap 🙄 🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹
However, I did get the jewelry organizer almost finished. I just need to add little hooks at the bottom to hang necklaces on! I also started laying out some pieces for a potential mosaic piece!
It felt good to get back outside and get the creative juices flowing again. I got to clear my mind a little and take some frustration out on the the wood! 😂🤣
Settled on the words for this sign and started wood burning it today! My @walnuthollow wood burning tool was working great until it wasnt. I went to tighten the tip and it broke off, and the screw shaft is stripped... I was just getting into a groove too. What do you do when you hit a stopping point on a project? Does anyone have any recommendations for a new wood burning tool?
Had to pass on putting a filter on this photo because if I filtered it, it would cover my sweaty red face and how hard I actually worked out today on the treadmill! I am slowly improving my time and making progress!
Today I did 3.5 miles in 59 minutes!! Yay!! It’s all about progress and NOT perfection... That is something that I have to remember daily- it is a struggle for me and if any of you are struggling with that... Just remember that you started and you are making progress... That is what matters! Our goals are NOT an overnight achievement, although I wish it was, but it isn’t, and we all have to work hard for what we want to accomplish. So, with that being said, I hope you all accomplish your goals! #goodvibes#fridaysweatsesh#improvedmytime#inspired#becomingabetterandhealthierme#naptimehustle#workingatmygoals 😊💪🏼💦💗@amyctonesitup
A few of you asked about this salad in my stories last night so here it is! I chop up onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers. Add a bunch of cilantro and balsamic vinegar. That’s it!
This is the perfect base for a summer meal, I’ll add chicken and feta cheese, or have it as a side with steak or even a smokie at the lake!
I make a ton because it lasts in the fridge for 3 or 4 days so it’s prep once, eat for a few days!
I used to think I didn’t need that personal development stuff, like it wasn’t necessary. I was too overwhelmed to take time for myself between household chores, trying to feed the family, try to live up to some crazy made up perfect standard that I thought everyone else was living up to except for me. Over the course of the last year, my mindset has shifted quite a bit.
I’m not perfect, but just like my workouts and nutrition, when I keep it consistent, it’s routine and easy to get in. For me it’s usually a podcast while I do dishes or take a shower. 🚿 It is through things I have learned in books and through others sharing their stories and successes that has literally changed how I create my mindset for the day. Life-changing seems like a cliche word to use here, but it has allowed me to be myself and be more comfortable and confident in how I live my life.
I am surprised, I am excited, I am encouraged, and I am grateful through growth and development. I realize that we are in a very tenuous time in our country, but I know that I can be more supportive and uplifting by keeping myself in a healthy mindset to move us forward.
These thoughts brought to you on hour 2.5 of naptime 😊 (another thing I am grateful for). How did you or will you fuel your mind today?
As most of you know I have been selling Younique for the past couple months and this month I am really pushing to hit my next advancement!
This is way more than just makeup for me. I have met some of the most amazing and strong women through this journey so far. The team that I am on truely uplifts & empowers women and I am so grateful to be apart of it.
Thank you to everyone that has supported me so far in this journey! I truely appreciate it. Even just a simple like, comment, or share helps me so much 🙂
“The joy in motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.”✨
It’s safe to say that #mommin has been a doozie for me today.
Little Ry Guy has clung to me and fussed the ENTIRE day and time we went out... NOT easy.🙈🙉
Hours upon hours of this makes me tired. I feel drained, and apparently they are not — so #naptimehustle takes place right on the landing of the stairs.
Lucas even told me “whatever” today for the first time🙁 - what is that all about!
Even on the hardest days, I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be - following the path God lead me to. Balancing the craziness is not always easy as a #mompreneur - but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. They need me and I need them.
This is my happy place. - - And to know that I’m helping other mamas stay home with their babies too or be able to come home to their babies is so, so fulfilling!💜
As a Air Force wife life can be lonely and hard when you have to change your career every 3-4 years. I have had this side hustle for almost a year now and it has taken me from living in Japan, going on a TDY with my hubby, and moving to a brand new state. I have been able to live out my passion for health and fitness while helping other ladies get started on their journey!
I work in the cracks of my day and truly enjoy everything I do and have big goals for my mini team!
Having this side hustle has truly given me something to call mine and given me an identity besides a Air Force wife or a mom! I love being both of those but sometimes you need to remind yourself who you really are outside those things! Have you ever felt this way and can you relate?
Girlfriend, I see you trying to do all of the things and feeling like you are failing miserably.
You have these big dreams and are still figuring out how you are going to make them happen. It seems so much of that success is determined right here on this app. You think if you just scroll a little more, like a couple more photos that maybe it will all start to work in your favor?
You look at all of these beautiful pictures and assume other women are working harder, they are just better, or clearly they have more time than you do. After all you were kept up half the night by a crying baby and you have little ones destroying your house during the day. How are you suposed to build an empire too?
Girl, I get you. I am living that same life. It is so hard not to compare ourselves to strangers on the internet. You hustle your own way, and you own it! If you have an hour during nap time, then you rock that hour and don't think less of yourself. #naptimehustle#momhustle

*Sigh* This beanbag is the only thing I’ve bought for baby sister’s nursery, and Ellie has of course taken it over.. I can’t believe I’ve gotten to my third trimester without even beginning to clean out/ paint/ decorate the new nursery!! Did any other mamas out there feel like a total slacker on baby number two??
Drinking my favorite green smoothie and thought I would repost the recipe in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
Last time I gave you the exact measurements, but with little time in the morning I’ve come up with this.
6oz. of water (or coconut water)
1 Frozen Banana
4-5 chunks of Frozen Mango
A BIG handful of Spinach
A small handful of Cashew
The original recipe called for 1/2 a lime (juice) but after I forgot to put it in once and then realized it was another step I just didn’t have time for, I cut it out. But it does add something to the smoothie.
Tip: I get 2 bags of bananas from the produce section in Costco and when they are ripe, I peel, half and throw as many as I can into a freeze ziplock, to have on hand for weeks. I also buy the mango (nice big bag) in the freezer section), big container of spinach and bucket of plain cashews at Costco. All much cheaper then the regular grocery store.
Which Regimen would you choose:
✔️Love the sun & your skin has paid for it with dark spots and wrinkles? ➕LIGHTENING ✔️Is your skin sensitive with red spots? ➕SOOTHE
✔️Are you fighting Acne? Doesn't matter the age- this fights all 4 stages.➕UNBLEMISH
✔️Do you want to reverse the signs of aging on your face? Wrinkles, crows feet...➕REDEFINE
....We don't have to accept the skin we have. These regimens WORK. Search before and after shots-take your own before and after & see the RESULTS.

It’s been amazing to use oils in my daycare to fight germs, manage moods, explore sensory play and encourage a restful nap time and now I am sharing my insight! I just launched a Facebook group just for providers. I will be sharing authentic stories about how I use oils in my daycare every day. It is also a safe place for encouragement and community with other like minded providers. I believe that the best way to ensure safe and effective oil use is through education, so that is what I’m here to do.
Are you a daycare provider? If so, I’d love to have you join my oils for daycare Facebook group! The vibe in there is so good and who doesn’t love connecting with like-minded providers focused on doing the best they possibly can for their littles?
If you’re a parent, tag your provider so they can learn more about creating a more natural space focused on proactive wellness.

This cute little guy is #ontheblog today 🐇🐇🐇 super easy and quick DIY Easter decor 👌 Totally naptime-friendly. Mostly consists of glueing sticks together. One of the most difficult projects I've ever completed 😉
I'm long overdue for a #FridayIntroduction . I'm Lindsay! This is one of the rare photos where I actually like my hair - which is why I am posting it obviously. 💁🏻♀️This is my husband Vinnie and I on our honeymoon in Aruba two years ago. 🌴These days you can find us changing diapers and laughing our heads off with our 7 month old, Avila. 👶🏻I've recently come to the conclusion that she has stronger abs than I do. 😑 I design, create, and fulfill orders while she naps. I call it my #naptimehustle . I also think that I've *almost* mastered the art of doing everything one handed. #momlife ✌🏻
Your turn! What's your favorite vacation destination? 🛩 Or where have you always wanted to travel but haven't had the chance to yet? 👇🏻

🌟FriYAY🌟 calls for a smoothie bowl! Whipped up this swirly, dreamy açaí & strawberry banana smoothie bowl after w2d5 of #lgsistersgetstrong 💪🏼 feeling a little extra motivated today, so I’m planning on getting in the 10 min ab routine with @katrinaascott & the @toneitup DMs during #naptimehustle 💫 enjoy your day, babes! The weekend is almost here! @toneitupnutrition
Sharing this picture again for #marchmeetthemaker ‘helper’ because it’s too cute not to! I think Abigail is going to be a great helper as she gets bigger, she can help walk to the post box, pick out colours of felt and when much bigger she can help with buttons. I do have two other helpers in my husband (web guru) and my mum (sewist) but they don’t take half as cute photos.
Doing some work while the boys are occupied. Just as I was prepping to snap some pictures for an e-course I’m working on, wouldn’t you know it, Fisher walks into the frame carrying a ginormous branch. #boyswillbeboys#naptimehustle#wildchild#yleo
Catching up with yesterday’s #marchmeetthemaker and ‘dreams and plans’. I dream about relaunching a rebranded blog and shop so there are lots of plans around that. But I also dream that one day I could work on a creative business full time (along with being a Mama) and maybe go to a big show like @handmadefair
