Sneakers: Nordstrom (on sale!! True to size) | Jeans: Nordstrom (on sale! True to size) | T-shirt: Nordstrom (on sale for $15.90! I’m wearing an XS) | Purse: kate spade new york, c/o (on sale!)
So, if you’re up to date on my Instagram, you know I broke my toe this week!! One of these is true:
- I was scaling up Mt. Everest and fell off a cliff. LUCKILY to toe was the only injury sustained on this treacherous trek.
- I got Goldie out of her crib and was walking to my bedroom and ran into a box.
I know it’s hard to tell which is true. You guessed….number 1!!! I have my toes taped together and the doctor said that he’s hoping the bone will start to heal. If not, I’ll have surgery in couple weeks where a pin will be placed in my toe. Please, no!
But really though, this post is coming at the perfect time because the podiatrist that I saw yesterday said that comfortable shoes that give your toes enough room is really important. These sneakers are SO COMFORTABLE and also have great arch support. Online, it says to order 1 size down which is 100% not true. Both me AND my mom got our normal size and these shoes are true to size! I got yo’ back. And yo’ feet, girl.
I rounded up the best sneakers and comfortable shoes of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Take care of those tootsies, my people.

My favorite quote of all time is from sister Hinkley- “I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulders. I want the Lord to know that I was really here and I really lived.” Always such a great reminder to me of what I really want.

One of my favorite quotes that I still live by is from Walt Disney himself: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
“If people spit at your back, it means you’re ahead.”
I have another one that I like, but it’s a long quote.
“Marriage is more than your love for each other… In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to his glory, and calls into his kingdom. In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal-it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man. … So love comes from you, but marriage from above, from God.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Have a great day!!

“Things happen for a reason!”

“Since faith in the timing of the Lord may be tried, let us learn to say not only, ‘Thy will be done,’ but patiently also, ‘Thy timing be done.’” -Elder Neal A. Maxwell
I read that when we were struggling to get pregnant with our first, and then again after our first failed IVF attempt when trying to get pregnant with our second. And I should probably memorize it again now that we are in the process of preparing for a FET to try for our third (and fourth if possible!). Anyway, being a fellow infertility mama, timing and patience is always something I need to learn and remember!
And of course, thank you for the fun giveaway, you are just too sweet! ????

Britta H says
Be kind, everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.
Hailey Peine says
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

One o my favorite quotes of all time is…”Better to do something imperfectly than nothing perfectly.” It means even more to me now that I am mother because being a mother means a lot of trying and failing.

Life is good when we try! 🙂

How can mortal love be so strong that you voluntarily subject yourself to responsibility, vulnerability, anxiety, and heartache and just keep coming back for more of the same? What kind of mortal love can make you feel, once you have a child, that your life is never, ever your own again? Maternal love has to be divine. There is no other explanation for it”.

So a quote I love and repeat to myself almost daily:
The best antidote for worry is work. The best medicine for despair is service. The best cure for weariness is to help someone even more tired.
Keeps things in perspective and a great motivator!
My favourite quote is:
“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says ‘ I’m possible’.
Positivity is the key ???? to happiness

Quoting my favorite line from the movie, The Help…”You is smart, you is kind, you is important!”
In a world that focuses so much on physical appearances, we can’t forget to tell our children how smart they are, how kind they should be and that they are important!
“So much in life depends on our attitude.” Thomas S. Monson
“Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.”

This is probably breaking the rules, but I have two quotes!
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” It helps me live in the moment more and seize opportunities that arise!
My second one is:
“Remember, for everything you have lost, you have gained something else. Without the dark, you would never see the stars.”
One of my favorite quotes I can always remember is “just do it”. When I’m literally dragging my feet all I just have to look at that swoosh to kick my butt in gear!
I love this, you are adorable and I hope that toe heals soon!
My quote is “Being happy never goes out of style”
My favorite quote is “Love is the divinest attribute of the human soul” ❤️
Monique Gonzales says
“Your future is as bright as your faith. ”
By Thomas S. Monson
President Hinckley: I’ve tried to recognize my wife’s individuality, her personality, her desires, her background, her ambitions. Let her fly. Yes, let her fly! Let her develop her own talents. Let her do things her way. Get out of her way, and marvel at what she does.
My favorite quote right now.

I like a lot of quotes and a lot of them were shared here! I love so many! So I’m sharing this one! It’s from Meet Joe Black. I think using your head in love is a good thing, but this quote is sooo romantic!
“I want you to get swept away, sing with rapture, dance like a dervish.
It’s a cornball thing.
Love is passion, obsession… something you can’t live without.
I say, fall head over heels.
Find someone you can love like crazy, that will love you the same way back.
How do you find them, well…
you forget your head and listen to your heart.
’cause the truth is honey,
There’s no sense in living your life without this,
To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well… you haven’t lived a life at all.
But you have to try.
Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.”
My current favorite quote is “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. ”
Gretchen Gough Chapman says
The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. -Peggy O’Mara
“God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds using time and pressure.. He’s working on you too”-R.W.
Emily Gourley says
I have two quotes. The first is my own of sorts, seriously my mantra, and it has been my go to through losing my 2 babies and every trial since. “Things work out, they always have, and they always will.” My other is one my sister sent me on a card. I can’t remember who it is from, but it says “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”
Love to you always!
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing ,
But Only God Keeps You Going!

Heidi Nelson says
I don’t know who said it. Probably a lot of people. I’m sure others will know better than mine. But it’s ” Put the Lord first, everything else will fall into place. ” never have truer words been spoken. Even if we don’t think they are at the moment.

“No hay nada más poderoso que una idea cuyo momento ha llegado.” My grandmother used to tell me that all the time. “There is nothing as powerful, as an idea which time has come.” It’s almost like the one from The Alchemist, when you want something, the universe conspires with you to get it. That’s the idea. 🙂
This is one of my favorite quotes by Elder Holland.

“I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me.” In a world of chaos, I have found peace in knowing me real identity. Things in life have NOT gone at all how I have planned. As the stress surges, I think about who I am and where I am going.

“By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before!” I Love following along with your blog, it is always a bright spot in my day to see your positive and real life posts! You are an excellent role model thank you for that!
Jenica Parcell says
I love that quote!! And thank you so much. That means the world and is so kind of you to say 🙂
I love your posts they always make me smile! I’m a twin Mommy too – to boy/girl twins. Mine are 13 months now so I love that we are sharing this experience at the same time – even though I do not know you personally it’s so fun to know other twin Moms and the daily Mommy things they love out – with the challenges and the complete outpouring of our hearts to the loves of our lives. My favorite quote right now that is fitting to this twin life is “The days are long but the years are short.” It’s a great reminder to cherish the moments and enjoy and savor your babies because it goes by in a blink. Being a stay at home home sometimes it feels like the day will never end before my hubby comes home. BUT – I’ve had to choke back tears lately – our twins have grown so much over night and they are already a year old – seems we just brought them home from the hospital yesterday. Hugs to you Momma friend.
Jenica Parcell says
You are so sweet, Brooke! I couldn’t agree more with your quote. My babies are turning into toddlers and it’s so much fun but it also breaks my heart because it’s going too fast!! So much love to you 🙂
