Check out this weeks episode!

I am SO excited to introduce you to my very best friend in all of the world….Mr Jesse Tapley!

Jesse is my husband and he’s just the best, he has the prettiest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, makes me laugh constantly, and is always pushing me to be better. I am so excited for you to listen to this episode. Jesse shares a little bit about our family, his favorite TV shows and what its like to be friends with other dudes.

Adjust your volume accordingly…I have a loud laugh.

See! Both Nebulas are blue and have after market parts. His jeep is one of his big hobbies lately!

Jesse and I love to whine down at night with some solid TV shows for example… THE NEW GIRL – THE OFFICE and PARKS AND REC. I just spent WAY too much time looking for a gif of Jessica Day but that just reminded me how similar we are and now I am just going to skip that!

So, if you can’t tell by his jeeps name Jesse (and our boys) LOVE the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is Iron Man, Captain America, Thor…all of The Avenger Movies and Jesse told us how they watched them in order this year so if that interests you here is the order in which they watched it…. How to watch every Marvel Movie in the right order!

One of my favorite things that Jesse said was how much he values our date days. Whatever they look like I know that he values them, and that has been a struggle with me in this season of building and growing because I haven’t been placing my value there with him. So we got a little chance to talk about valuing seasons and how those seasons change so rapidly. Which is where this Andy Bernard quote from THE OFFICE comes in

“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good ole days before you actually left them.” I think I long for the next stage in life…whatever it may be so much that I tend to miss the good ole days right in front of me.

This is Jesse’s all time favorite book. He has read it a few times and I think soon he’ll read it with Zeke!

ENDURANCE: SHACKLETON’S INCREDIBLE VOYAGE 

Jesse has been listening to this podcast but wants to remind you that it is not always appropriate…meaning there is foul language!

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

Check out this episode PART 1

Check out Part 2 here!

This week you are in for a treat! First of all its a two part episode, because Jesse said it was a bad idea to put out an episode that was almost 2 hours longs. BUT I am SO excited for you to listen. Anna and I just couldn’t stop talking and like a true coffee time with my friends, we just lost track of time and kept chatting.

Anna is the author of THE POLYGAMIST DAUGHTER her real life story of being raised in a polygamist cult and how she broke free, found Christ and has found freedom in all of that. Anna is a mover and shaker and she dropped some TRUTH for us today. I really don’t think I’ll ever look at an apple seed the same way.

Anna is also known in the book world as a well known Book Launcher, and she tells us all about how that started and how her side hustle has become her main hustle. She is so persistent and strong and I am in awe of her.

I loved talking with her about EVERYTHING from counseling, to diet books, to CrossFit, Christ, books and everything in between. This was a TRUE Coffee Time with my friend and I hope you love it!

SHOW NOTES INTRO JULIANNA WELLS

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

Listen to this episode!

To kick off this new adventure of Podcasting I though it would be a great idea for me to introduce myself to all my new and old friends. Well its super weird to interview yourself. So I did what any sane person would do…I enlisted my best friend, Julianna Wells, to step out of her comfort zone and into the studio (my dining room table).

In this episode Julianna asks me about my family, we talk about traveling together, and how we are pretty much twins…I mean look at us…totally twins!img_3950

And really to the point of this whole episode we talk about my heart about starting this podcast. A little hint…Its about YOU! Making friends, encouraging one another and knowing that we are all in this together…and really and truly we are better together.

Happy New Year 2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I cannot wait to see what 2018 and the Lord have in store for me, my family and here on my little corner of the internet! I have some big goals and a road map in place to get me there, now I need to be brave enough to take the necessary steps.

2017 was a fun year in our house:

Jesse and I went skydiving for my birthday

We went to Disneyland for spring break and got to visit our California family

Tent Camped and the quickly upgraded our tent to “Poppy” Pop-Up Camper

I went to RISE with my Cousin Melissa, and saw my hero Rachel Hollis

Got a matching tattoo with Melissa

Jesse and I ran away to Disney World ALONE

Zoe got Sister Locs and all my hair woes are now GONE

My sister Michelle visited before moving to Germany

DISNEY WORLD as a family, where we basically moved there

Visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with the kids!

Loved all things Summer: swimming, Schlitterbahn, TBARMcamps, beach trip, and lake trip

I started blogging more

We hung out with friends, and really dove into our community

We dated more and communicated better

Built furniture and rearranged our house

Wore matching Christmas Jammies

And rested like it was our J-O-B

So here are some of my resolutions, goals, oh I don’t know what to call them but here is what I am striving for in 2018:

Do my 5 minute journal EVERYDAY

Drink more water than coffee

Read my Bible daily

Write more

Be Present with my fam = less time scrolling on my phone

Slow to anger and Quick to Love

To work out because I am ABLE to move my body and because I enjoy it

I find that having something to narrow your focus, to hone in on improving yourself, you need a very specific idea. No fluff around it or extra stuff to get caught up in. This year I picked a word that I could focus on. A single word that will help me remember who I want to be and where I want 2018 so lead me. My word for the year is COURAGE. I want to stop worrying about what others think of me and that takes Courage. I want to speak to women and share what the Lord has done and that takes Courage. I want to love my kids and husband with all that I am even when I feel like I have nothing left to give, and for me, you guessed it takes Courage. So this year that’s what I’ll be focusing on being brave, and courageous!

What about you? What are your goals? Do you have a word? Or a focus? I want to hear it! Let’s keep each other accountable this year!

Disney World in a Nut Shell

Oh my goodness, I feel like I haven’t sat behind my computer in ages. Mostly because I haven’t! We got home on last Monday from a ten day family vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth, DISNEY WORLD.

We met ALL the Princesses. Merida was one of my favorites

I have decided that I am no better than a child while walking down Main Street USA gazing up at Cinderella’s castle with stars in my eyes. You can just feel the joy, the magic, and the happiness. It just makes me smile, and to experience it this time with all three of our kids just added to the experience. I have a little video of the kids walking around the corner and seeing the castle for the first time and Zoe’s mouth literally falls open. It was so much fun! I wanted to use this post to share just a few of our favorite things about this trip:     **In no particular order!**

Disney World 2017


  1. We tried to set the kids up for the character interactions as best we could. We used a really neat Disney Animated Encyclopedia and had the characters sign their page, but on each page before we left we wrote down questions for the kids to ask the characters. We wanted to keep the experience more than just an autograph and a photo. I was really proud and excited when the boys would ask the questions and do their best to keep the conversation going. One of my favorites was when Titus asked Mickey, “When are you going to propose to Minnie?!” then he followed it with, “If you don’t she’s going to find another mouse.” Mickey made it so much fun and we all giggled about it the rest of the day.
  2. Bippity Boppity Boutique, somehow Zoe found out about this on YouTube Kids. We planned this to be her birthday present and she was so excited. It also worked at that when we scheduled the appointment (last minute… because it was on me to set this up, not Jesse) there was availability at the Castle. So in we go; she changes into a beautiful little gown and I cry because I’m seeing this girl grow up before my very eyes. I know that some day soon I’ll be helping her into a wedding gown and my heart just cannot handle that! Then she gets hair and makeup and her nails painted and she’s just soaking it all up and loving every minute. I loved this time alone with her because I was able to take a step back and really see her. My beautiful little girl who has overcome so much. She’s a fighter with the glitz and glamour of a princess.

  3. One day while we were walking around Jesse said, “I am going to thank or say hi to every cast member (the people who work for Disney) by name.” So he did, and the boys and I followed suit. It was so funny to hear Zeke yell, “Thanks Bob” randomly while we were in line or after we were handed food. I hope it helped our boys to overcome some fear of talking to adults and I really hope that it gave the Cast Members a little bit of a smile.
  4. As we walked into the Magic Kingdom one day, a Cast Member walked up to Zoe (who was wearing a her princess dress) and asked for her autograph. She signed her name and then curtseyed. It was SO cute!
  5. One of my favorite characters to meet was Chewbacca. We took some pictures and he was observant and noticed Jesse and me signing to Zoe. He looked to Jesse and asked *In sign language* if she was deaf. Jesse responded Yes, and then Chewbacca asked Zoe what her name was. She was so shocked to see him signing she just smiled SO SO big. It was so neat and Jesse caught it all on video. Here’s the Link Chewy Signing.

    He gives the best hugs!!

  6. Titus is by far our most timid kid when it comes to rides. He straight up jumped off of one in DisneyLand and didn’t even care! So when it came to some of the big rides, like Expedition Everest he was nervous. In just a casual conversation he mentioned being nervous to a cast member and she said, “Go try, if you do it I’ll get you a Mickey Ice Cream bar.” That ice cream bar gave him the courage he needed and he did it!! He went to her and she paid up, she was so excited with him and it was just so neat to see her invested with him.

We ate pizza while sitting in the grass at our hotel. We laughed over silly jokes that weren’t really funny. We played, we walked A LOT, and we were together non-stop. We watched our boys interpret for their sister, and watched their eyes light up during the fireworks. But that doesn’t mean it was always magical; I called one child a snotty brat, two of our kids had a fist fight in line, and one of them was the maddest princess of all time. Ten days was a long time to be gone but I think it was so good for us to be in “the bubble” with each other. The outside world didn’t matter. It was just us five with some Princesses, some Jedi’s and a Mouse.

A dream come true! MOANA!!!!
