I was so excited to get to announce the winner of a mommy makeover from my Mommy Challenge on Saturday (2/25/17)! If you didn’t see the original contest, take a look here.

My mom stayed home with me and my 3 other siblings and worked so hard to make life awesome for us! I saw her hard work then, but now being a mom myself, I understand that it’s easy to get caught up in everything you have to do and forget that before you were a mom, you were YOU! And YOU is still there!

I just wanted to take a moment and encourage moms, and women alike, to take time for yourself to do something to feel good about yourself! It’s not a selfish thing. You will most definitely do better at everything on your plate if you feel good about yourself. Remember, you are not ‘just’ someone’s mom. You are a woman first.

So I did a contest to get nominations of moms that you think rock! I got some of the best stories! Even just responses of people feeling empowered to just have a moment for themselves. It was great! Thank you so much for all of the participation! I can’t wait to get together with my winning mom to give her a moment for herself! She definitely deserves it! I’ll post pictures from mommy makeover day!

In the mean time, go be awesome today!
