What can I say, I like day dates and sometimes I browse Pinterest and *pretend* to be an interior designer. WHO CAN RELATE?? 🙋🏻♀️🏡
Nick and I have a babysitter lined up so we can make my #daydate dreams come true by getting an INSIDE tour of gorgeous homes thanks to @hba_ggr’s Parade of Homes next weekend. Tickets are only $10/person via my link (get them in advance to save yo’💰)! And btw kids are free (!!) if you wanna have them tag along.
PS Where should we get lunch on our date?? Any yummy spots near the Byron Center area? Send some recommendations my way, please!👇🏼🙏🏼
We have to throw it back to last May when we were both very pregnant! #tbt 🤰🏻🤰🏼 We are so thankful we not only got to be pregnant together (Our babies are only 8 days apart!) but that we also get to do a job we love together! 👯♀️ Best pals are the BEST.
My mission continues... beauty truly comes from within (in more ways than 1) and what’s going on inside is always reflected on our faces. ✨ The majority of the time, Skin issues are caused by all sorts of internal imbalances such as stress, digestion issues, hormonal imbalances and more. As an Esthetician, I can treat the symptoms of aging and problematic skin, but am rarely able to help with the internal issues unless my clients are willing to make the diet and lifestyle changes at home that we’ve discussed. Historically, I’ve used pressure points on the face to induce relaxation during a facial massage (which I’m sure some of you have experienced!) but I’m now in the process of getting my certification to stimulate reflexology points on the face to help balance some of these internal systems, as well as teach you how to do the same! This will be huge for me to incorporate into my treatments because I have always felt limited by only treating the issues I see topically. Stay tuned as I share more about what I’m learning with this amazing reflexology technique, Dien Chan Zone. .
We have to celebrate our girl @kristajean23 for hitting 500 classes this spring! 🙌 Way to go, Krista. You are SUCH a rockstar.💪 Check out her original post below and be sure to give her some love in the comments! ⬇️
From @kristajean23 on Instagram: “A few years ago when I started going to @flexcityfitness I was overweight, unhealthy, self conscious and trying to kickstart my fitness journey. Fast forward to class 500 - I’ve made some great friends (including the instructors that kick my 🍑), hit some PRs and have made health and fitness a priority. Here’s to 500 more! 💪🏼💦 #flexsweatstretchrepeat#weddingbod “
Today I invested in myself. Today I spent all day pursuing my passions. Today I was surrounded by amazingly creative individuals who I’m lucky enough to call my friends. Today was a good day.
“The sultan of swat!” “The king of crash!” “The colossus of clout!” “Babe Ruth!” “THE GREAT BAMBINO”…is back! Just in time for summer, one of our most popular warm weather staples is ready to be scooped. Made with a vanilla malt base, dark chocolate dusted throughout, our signature caramel swirl, and a healthy helping of roasted, salted peanuts… we like to say it’s “less than a god, but more than a man.” 🍦⚾❤
We want to see YOU in the studio this week. 💪 Schedule your #flexsweatstretchrepeat sessions now and we will catch you in class! 💦
Can’t make it in today but still planning on sticking to your #nevermissamonday commitment? 🙌 You’re the bomb and our girl @fitmittenkitchen has you covered with a killer #FLEXathome workout. 😍 Feel the burn with these two circuits you can do anytime, anywhere. 🎉 Tag @flexcityfitness in your sweaty selfies post-workout! 🤸🏼♀️
Cheers to all the hardworking, dedicated mother's out there! Motherhood is more than a full-time job...and for that we say thank you. For all the long nights, longer days, and all the joy that comes with being a mom, thank you for being all that you are. We Love's you! ❤🍦👐
Here some Saturday slayage for you all from my live yesterday. Don’t mind my messy hair, this Michigan weather has it doing whatever it wants 😩

Question: have you heard of a She Shed? I'm so excited to be transforming our spare bedroom into my very own #SheShed (or #MomCave ?) and it's going to be chock full of bright colors, boho vibes and Otomi folk art inspiration.
🌵 🌵 🌵
Y'all I've been keeping this HUGELY exciting project under wraps, but I just can't hold it in any longer. With the help of my friend Kristin @postboxdesigns and @ashleyhomestore, my small spare room is being transformed into a multi-purpose room (think: guest bedroom + home office + laundry area).
🌵 🌵 🌵
This upcoming week one of the closets will be converted into a laundry unit and hopefully by next weekend Nick and I will be painting the room and giving my great grandma's desk a DIY makeover. The lovely @aly_cat will be photographing the finished space and I cannot wait to share the photos!
In celebration of GR Cider Week 2018, we collaborated with @farmhauscider to bring you the Caramel Apple Spiced Cider Float. • Featuring our Vanilla Bean ice cream topped with Farmhaus Brunch Cider, a drizzle of our housemade Caramel Sauce, and a sprinkling of spices, this Michigan-inspired float will be available all week starting tomorrow (5/13)! ❤🍨🍺✋
