  • For anyone battling with infertility or for anyone that may want to learn a bit more about what some of their friends and family members may be going through, check out my latest blog post telling you all about what to expect on the first visit to a reproductive specialist. My goal is to continue to bring awareness to infertility, and to let those on this journey know they are not alone! And to give others hope, because when I was going through it that is all I wanted. I wanted to hear stories that gave me hope it would happen for me someday and it did.

A percentage of all proceeds from Love For Mama is donated to the charity resolve which helps families facing the emotional and financial challenges of infertility.  https://shoploveformama.com/blogs/news

  • "We haven't had family photos in so long..."
*
I hear it from most women I talk to. Usually its because life is busy, they feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of available and eager photographers, and they have no idea what to wear how to dress or battle insecurities about their appearance.
*
Sound familiar? Here are a few tips to get you past the overwhelm:
*
1 - Start following photographers on social media, but only photographer's work that makes you say WOW! Follow them for a few weeks or months until you have narrowed it down to 2-3 options and start the inquiry process.
2 - Once you've picked a photographer that is right for you, make the session a priority. Getting it on the calendar when everyone is going a million directions will be the hardest part - you can do it!!
3 - Don't put yourself or the kids in outfits that are uncomfortable or too far outside of what you might wear in real life. If you are uncomfortable, it will translate to the photos. Don't try to force yourself into wearing something because it looked good on the rack or because a mom in a pinterest pin wore it in that photo you love.
*
Family photos are precious keepsakes and memory time capsules. You will never regret scheduling family photos OR hiring someone who does them right. And if you need help dressing for your session, come to Juniper Tree! I'll help you coordinate your wardrobe, even if you're using another photographer. <3

  • Elsie and her husband came to me when their little girl was almost 5 months old. The 4 months sleep regression caused some major disruptions to her sleep and sleep patterns. She was sleeping through the night before she hit this regression, and they just wanted to get her back on track. I put a strong plan together for her and her husband, we got on a video call, hashed it out and began working together. Within a week we saw positive results, and by the time our 3 weeks was up their little girl was back to sleeping through the night. They are based in NY and I am based in Seattle - so the time difference didn’t matter! •

Do you need help with your baby’s sleep or do you know someone who needs help? If so tag a mama or your spouse so they can read this success story and jump on board with hiring me to help. •
—————
Read the full testimonial below... •
“Hiring Desiree as our sleep coach was the best investment we made for our child and ourselves. We needed help transitioning our baby to her crib, out of a swaddle and with sleeping through the night. Thanks to Desiree, we were successful with our goals and we also know so much more about sleep! We also live in NY and the time zone difference was not an issue whatsoever! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone.”

You guys!! Today I posted my 40 by 40 list on the blog. This is something I have been working on for a while and I can’t wait to share it with you! .

  • Strolling with our babies 💖 This @nuna_usa stroller and car seat is my fave for these leisurely strolls in the neighborhood. Baby Edie loves it too! She always falls asleep right away when we take our walks.

Also peep our little dachshund Savvy in the bottom basket. We had to say goodbye to Savvy not too long ago and this was our last walk together. She had an injury in her back and wasn’t able to walk anymore so I was happy to see that she fit in the basket. We love and miss Savvy so much and I’m so happy that we captured this picture. ❤️ #theishgirls #seattlemom #seattlekids #pnwfamily #mynuna

  • ✨Tough Love Tuesday: You get what you tolerate in life. If you’re not willing to do the uncomfortable work to change things, things won’t change.✨⁣
⁣
Don’t complain about the way your life is turning out. Stop tolerating it.⁣
⁣
Don’t complain about the way your family treats you. Stop tolerating it.⁣
⁣
Don’t complain about your job. Stop tolerating it.⁣
⁣
Whenever I post tough love, I get a some nasty messages. People think I’m mean. That I don’t get it. But I say this from a place of love. And I say it as a reminder to myself, too. I’m on the journey with you.⁣
⁣
We are all capable of so much more than we are tolerating! And Mama, you ALWAYS have a choice. Believe in that. Believe in yourself.🔥⁣
⁣
My mission is to help women like you take control: of your health, your finances, your time. And I’ve got all the tools to make it happen. You can start with a health bootcamp or with a business, or both. You just have to reach out. Apply in bio or drop an emoji. 📲😘

  • That’s how I look forward to one extra day off at the Memorial Day weekend😂 I’ve just recently realized that I have more tasks on my daily list than hours in one day😆 is there a way to fix it?🙄
But enough with a whining! Summer is just around the corner and I am becoming more and more excited and can’t stop planning some exiting trips and plans 😉

Вот так мечтательно смотрю я в сторону три дня выходных на следующей неделе в честь праздника Memorial Day 😂
Я вдруг поняла, что дел и обязанностей в моем списке больше, чем часов в сутках 🙄 , а ежедневный подъем в 5:30 - 6 утра стал частью рутины. Ну ничего! Главное, что лето не за горами, а значит впереди много поездок и мест, которые мы собираемся открывать для себя вместе с нашим маленьким путешественником 🤗

  • Feeling excited this morning (even though Tuesday is arguably the lamest day of the week)! ⠀
⠀
My virtual nutrition accountability group kicked off yesterday, and not only am I so excited to work with this group of women, but I can’t wait to see the progress the make over the next 30 days! ⠀
⠀
I used to hate when people would talk about finding balance, because quite honestly I thought it was a load of crap - something that didn’t actually exist. But, what I found was that it was MY mindset about food that suuuccckkeedd. Balance is possible. You absolutely can feel in control of food. For some, getting to this place takes more work than others, but you can do it! ⠀
⠀
Here’s to a month of support, accountability, and learning to live in control of food! 🙌

  • I've got a new Netflix show your boys are going to LOVE: You Vs. Wild. 🗻🚁⛷🧗🏻‍♂️🐆
.
Have you heard of this? It's kind of like a survival show, with @beargrylls traversing all these epic adventures around the world — but it's interactive, so YOU help him make "real time" decisions. He'll get to a crossroads and describe the choices to you (for example, should he follow this river or bushwhack through the jungle?) and then you decide which one he should do! It's like one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books...but with a remote. 🤗
.
We watched a few episodes this weekend and my boys were riveted (swipe 👉🏼 to see, ha!) — they've talked about it every day since.
.
This show is just the right amount of adventure, outdoor education and fun — we love it. Just don't make the wrong choice and kill Bear off. 😬😱
.
.
.
More quality shows we love: #boymom_screentime
.
📷: @imdb (except the last one, which is mine 😊) / Thanks @bethscrobertson for the recommendation! 💙

  • MOM TRUTH: I do not liking playing with my kid.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I do like having conversations with her, experiencing things with her, walking and observing the world around us, watching her experience joy in any form, being silly, baking together, and dancing!
⁣⁣
I’m NOT about playing with dolls, pretend play, or dramatic play. Puppets? (Kill me now) Puzzles? (Snooze), Coloring? (Meh), Play dough (oh hell no)!⁣ ⁣
⁣⁣
So...I politely and respectfully decline. I believe she deserves to have a playmate who genuinely wants to play with her. And she’s quite brilliant at playing independently. ⁣⁣
⁣
That said, I was genuinely in the mood for a game of Candyland and Go Fish tonight and that was grand!⁣
⁣⁣
I’m her parent.  Not her playmate. Do you relate?

  • Today’s #howwemet story.

This one never gets old. A coworker of mine kept bothering me asking, “Who do you think is cute at work?”. I pointed at him and the next thing I found out, she went up to him and talked me up.

She talked about how I was a good cook, a good mom and I was pretty. Talk about embarrassing, I felt like I was being sold off to him.

I had to clear my name, he probably thought I was crazy so I told him, “I’m so sorry about that”. Later on, he asked for my number. And just like that, we hit it right off.

If it wasn’t for her, who knows what would of happened. We still think we would of somehow talked to each other but I still liked how it turned out.
💑
How did you meet your husband?

  • You guys! I’m on a podcast!! 🎉🎧
.
My friend Kirsten from @reportthemagic invited me to chat about our family’s Disneyland trip earlier this year — her podcast is a series of different Disney trip reports (😍!!) and I was so honored to come on & share some of my BEST tips for heading to Disneyland with kids. 💃🏼🏰✨
.
We talked all about how my family plans our Disneyland vacations, the boys’ favorite rides, and a couple of my not-necessarily-Disney-authorized secrets 🤫😜 for making the most of your Disneyland day. Kirsten was SO easy to chat with and made my first podcast interview a ton of fun. ❤️
.
Head to @reportthemagic for the link to the show (or look up Report the Magic on your favorite podcast app - link in my profile).

And, if you want even MORE of my extensive Disneyland knowledge, be sure to grab my Ultimate Guide to Disneyland from boymomsunite.com 👍🏻😄 #boymomatdisneyland

  • Strolling with our babies 💖 This @nuna_usa stroller and car seat is my fave for these leisurely strolls in the neighborhood. Baby Edie loves it too! She always falls asleep right away when we take our walks.

Also peep our little dachshund Savvy in the bottom basket. We had to say goodbye to Savvy not too long ago and this was our last walk together. She had an injury in her back and wasn’t able to walk anymore so I was happy to see that she fit in the basket. We love and miss Savvy so much and I’m so happy that we captured this picture. ❤️ #theishgirls #seattlemom #seattlekids #pnwfamily #mynuna

  • Seasonal allergies are no fun and something I’ve had to deal with since I was a kid. I have all the symptoms from itchy, watery eyes, foggy head and nasal congestion. #ad Layla has started to get the same symptoms which is why I only buy Puffs Ultra Soft for us. There is nothing worse than a red and irritated nose due to ordinary non-lotion tissues. Puffs Ultra Soft tissues offer the comfort that both Layla and I need during allergy season. #ANoseInNeed #theishgirls

  • 7 months ago I decided I was worth the effort. I decided enough of the excuses, the bad choices and the rest of the crap standing in front of me. I was stressed, exhausted, and feeling “stuck” that resulted in drinking too much and eating unhealthy food. I pulled out my “day one” photos and beyond the weight I see a sad version of myself. Sad that I let myself get to this point and sad that my daughters were living me in this state. My back hurt, my knees hurt, and I didn’t have the energy to do much but put on a happy face when out. Taking back my life has been REALLY hard at times. I took the entire month of September on without a single “adult” beverage and began making smarter food choices. I read about intermittent fasting and the effects of insulin on weight. I went back to the gym with friends to hold me accountable and provide a social outlet of which I was in desperate need. Now I don’t look at a scale, I eat more food in a day than ever before, and I’m not on a “fad diet” or shake regimen. I make the choices of all the food for my entire family and therefore, I want to fuel us all the right way. The kids don’t see mom “starving” or eating something different nor do they see a mom constantly on a scale BUT they don’t feel deprived when they sit down for dinner either. Mady told me her favorite meals are the ones I cook for us. When we go on vacations or out to eat, I indulge without hesitation or guilt. For myself, my husband, and my daughters  I am a better version of myself than I’ve seen in a long time. As I turn the corner to 39 I am excited for what is to come. I only hope to be stronger and at least as happy as I am today. #fwtfl #noexcuses #diditforme.

  • This is my first Mother’s Day as a mom of two and I couldn’t be happier. It has been the hardest but most rewarding 6 months with my two girls. #ad It has also made me appreciate my own mom that much more.  I’ve always loved to send my mom flowers for Mother’s Day and knowing this my husband helped my girls send this beautiful @teleflora bouquet to me. Not only are the flowers so meaningful to me but they add so much beauty to my home!  Their Mother’s Day Bouquet Collection is beyond beautiful and I can’t wait for my mom to get hers delivered as well! #LoveOutLoud #Teleflora #theishgirls

  • Throwing a baby shower for the first time in nearly 5 years! I’ve got to admit, I’m a bit rusty. Are shower games still “a thing”? 🙄 Regardless, it’s still fun to celebrate a new mama. Welcome to the tribe! @devindemartinicooke #momtribe #whatjennwore

  • I’ve written a blog post and I’m wearing my new @amourvert wrap dress. Plus husband agreed to take photos (he also confirmed that my hair isn’t great). Regardless, I take it all as a win! #itsfriday …………………
