It’s always hard when our kids experience a tough loss in a competition. We do our best to stay positive and console their defeat. When really, sometimes I just want to cry along with them! Instead we hold it in, and stay strong, not much else we can do right? Yesterday was our first time competing in this activity. I thought the team did amazing and we are so proud of all of them for their efforts. It was a fun experience, I am still surprised by the results they were given, but it’s just one of those things in life. You can’t be bitter, you can only learn from it and try to do better next year. Middle school is tough enough, Monday announcements will be exciting for most, but hard for some to sit through. I told her last night, it is okay to be sad, cry tonight and get it all out. Tomorrow it will be time to move her focus onto something new. We will be cheering on all our friends as they continue on to state, so proud of all the kids and the hard work they put through.

I’m a busy mom myself, and I love to keep things simple. I enjoy the fact that with my Origami Owl business and my new Willing Beauty business, my teenage daughter can participate in all of it with me. She is an Owlette and soon to be Willa Girl. We inspire young kids(I say kids because we have boys too) as young as 11 to be entrepreneurs! Love, inspire, motivate + empower! My family has been blessed and can see that I am happy, more positive, I have a strong connection with my O2 sisters and truly enjoy what I do. At a time when it can be difficult to relate to my teenage daughter, we have this that allows us to do things together that we both love, share with friends and help others.
Origami Owl recently announced the return of our $99 Business Essentials kit with a value of over $275, you get a free gift, and you may get a golden egg with goodies inside! Watch this short video and get excited! If you have never heard of Origami Owl you can learn more here.
I need to be in two places at once this weekend…..
So naturally I am stressed. I’m not sure how other moms deal. My daughter has a D.I. competition and I have to be at an event all day. If I could have a superpower for a day it would definitely be to have super speed, I know I can’t be in two places at once, but super speed could help!
Here is a little insight for you from our new company Willing Beauty. If this doesn’t tell you how amazing this company will be and the products as well then I don’t know what else will 😉
“If you haven’t figured it out by now, we have the happiest founders and executives EVER right here at Willing Beauty! And the best part? They’re not at all selfish with the happy factor! They want to share happiness in ABUNDANCE with all of us as well as our customers, and what better way to do that than to ensure happiness with a bottom of the bottle guarantee?!? That’s right – if you are not 100% HAPPY with our products, you can return them for a full refund, even if the bottle is empty. And happy around here isn’t just “for now” – it’s FOREVER! There is no time limit set on when our products must be returned. We even refund their shipping AND send them a return label! <<<<SAY WHAT?!?!
You can share Willing Beauty with complete confidence that not only will your customers LOVE our products, but that if for some reason they don’t, we will make sure they are HAPPY!!
How HAPPY does this make YOU?????” -Renee Brown
I’m very HAPPY!!!
We all know how important it is to drink enough water each day. Do you know how much water you should drink daily? I honestly don’t know & not sure if I have really thought about it. As a busy mompreneur I don’t always have time for things like that. Though I do try my best, my best guess is I probably drink 8-10 glasses a day, maybe more or less.
Sometimes we crave more flavor, so I go for fruit infused water. My favorite combos would have to be strawberries & cucumbers, or lemon/lime & cucumbers, sometimes with mint thrown in the mix. You can’t go wrong with your choices although they each have there own benefits. I love finding different suggestions on Pinterest.
Vitamin C is not only great to put in your body by fruit infused water, but great to put on your skin. I love that it is part of our 5 forces of nature in Willing Beauty’s proprietary HY+5 complex.
HY = Hyaluronic Acid
A naturally occurring substance in the body that helps skin hold and retain a balanced amount of moisture for softer, smoother, more radiantly hydrated skin. Hydrated skin helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Today is pretty busy for us. I usually look forward to my Saturday’s with no events because it’s my only day to sleep in a little. Not today! One kid has an Art V.A.S.E. Competition today, has to be there at 7:15am. At 7pm last night he tells me he has to dress nice and needs khakis…. because obviously I love last minute things and live to serve my kids lol! Anyway, thank goodness we found khakis sitting in his closet so no late night clothes shopping for this mom. I love my kids but lately everyday is one last minute thing they need after another! Anyone else going through that? Mine are teens, so I get it. I know I’m partly to blame too. Oh well… it could be worse, I’m sure. #Momlife
