Oh what a night!

Wow! Can you believe it? Our beloved Philadelphia Eagles are world champions! It’s incredible. While I had faith this team could get it done, I am still in shock! No one can really prepare you for how it feels when your team wins the biggest game ever. I can tell you it feels AMAZING! Pure joy for the people of Philadelphia and any Eagles fan around the world this super bowl Monday!

Not only did our team win, it was also a great game. A hard fought battle on both ends. Both teams pulling out tricks that would hopefully give them the edge. Luckily for us, our quarterback can throw and CATCH the football! Luckily the other one cannot! How amazing was that touchdown from Nick Foles? Super Bowl MVP amazing! Unreal! The Eagles came together on the biggest stage in the NFL and played their hearts out. You could see how badly they wanted it. It was evident given their resilience. When the Patriots would score, they would fight right back. While the Eagles maintained the lead for most of the game, it was a tight fight the whole time! It came down to the last second and our defense held strong and prevented the “G.O.A.T” from getting the ball to someone in the end zone. Who’s the greatest of all time now?!

Spirits were high when that clock hit :00 to end the game in an Eagles victory! Super Bowl champs! The Eagles first ever title. It was magic! The type of magic that brings grown men to tears! Celebrations were had throughout the region, be it on broad street or beyond. The celebration continues and will culminate with a parade in Philadelphia in honor of our deserving champs and their fans who truly bleed green!

After a day of indulgence-food and drink and very little sleep, you may be feeling it today! A little lemon in our water to hydrate and rejuvenate, a dab of peppermint to our temples to for an instant pick me up, or a drop of lavender to relax us during a time of extreme highs will surely carry us on this amazing ride! (All of which are including in the starter kit! Click link to get your Starter kit )

Keep riding high Philadelphia fans! And look forward to more great times ahead at the victory parade on Thursday!

Sweet dreams!

Sleepless in suburbia

It’s 830 pm and the two younger kiddos are finally tucked snug in their beds. The smart move for this tired mama would have been to finish up last minute chores and hit the sack myself but no! Instead I decide to try to catch up on ‘This is Us’ with my oldest. Of course one episode turns into two (how can you just watch one episode?! It’s just too good.) and before I know it is 11 o’clock. By the time I finally lay down it almost 1130 but hey, if Penn can sleep til at least 630 I’m good!

Well of course, just my luck, clock hits 145 am and Penn is awake! Typically in these situations I pull him into bed with me and shortly after he dozes back off to sleep. Not this time though! Baby boy was ready to play, clapping his hands and talking up a storm-wide AWAKE! And of course, I just used the last of the sleepyIze essential oil the night before (probably the reason Penn slept great that night!)

SleepyIze is an oil in Young Living’s children’s line. It’s a blend of lavender, Roman chamomile, geranium, bergamot, frankincense, and tangerine. It is used to promote relaxation at bedtime or nap time to help little ones unwind and drift off to sleep. I could’ve ran out to my car to grab the lavender I had in my work bag but it was about 17 degrees out there and I thought it’d be crazy to venture out into that! Penn would be asleep soon…I thought.

It’s now 330 am and Penn is still bright eyed and bushy tailed and this mama was beyond exhausted. Out the car for the lavender it was after all! A couple drops diluted in coconut oil and warmed up in my hands before massaging it onto his back and five minutes later, just like magic, baby boy was sleeping soundly! Definitely getting lavender and sleepyIze this month so I always have back up for emergencies like this!

Penn ended up sleeping til almost 9 which would’ve been amazing except for the fact that I had to be up at 630 to wake Taylor for school. Mama tired! Of course, oils to the rescue!

There are numerous oils that are great for energy. My all time favorite is Geranium. It’s considered the great balancer, helping to keep our hormones in check. It’s also uplifting-great when feeling run down and tired. I apply geranium to my wrists neat (undiluted) and inhale it’s floral scent throughout the day. Other oils great for energy include orange, lemon, peppermint, eucalyptus, ginger, bergamot, grapefruit, pine, and black pepper. Next time you are feeling tired, grab yourself some oils instead of that second (or third) cup of coffee. You will be amazed at how refreshed you feel!
