what is team anchored and #modernmomonamission

Team Anchored 
This is just a couple hundred of the 4,000 team members (I'm in here somewhere) we have on our team and my friend and our leader won 'Leader Of The Year' out of 550,000 associates at our corporate convention last month. She's actually hopping on a plane in San Diego and flying out to visit me this weekend, woohoo!!
5 years ago I was introduced to this incredible nutrition and paid RETAIL for it for 4 solid years because no one had ever explained what a wholesale account was. I was paying approx $100 more per month and didn't think twice about this cost because the VALUE of our superfood is worth every penny!
A little over 1 year ago I was approached by a friend, Laura Stevens, who explained wholesale pricing to me, how I could get my products paid for and most importantly, how I could make a lucrative income as a stay at home mom.
The financial opportunities within Isagenix are plentiful and the compensation plan is easily the best in the business! I've watched my mentor skyrocket to an income of multiple 6 figures in less than 1 years time. Mind you, she's a stay at home mom of 3 kids 4 and under, her husband was deployed to Iraq and she was essentially a single parent.
Well I'm no dummy - when I see a good thing I grab it and RUN!!! Just before I gave birth to Landon in April I reached the highest leadership level in my organization, earning $2,500 in just ONE WEEK! 1 month after having having him I advanced to the next level, which means my annual Isagenix income is $28,000-$53,000 depending on how hard I work. Can you believe that? Because I hardly can! Now I'm not saying this is a great income and I'm not saying it's penny's... My point is, if I can do it - with a bunch of obstacles in my way - so can you! That's the ONLY reason I'm sharing.
I am a stay at home mom of 2 under 2. I could make up excuses as to why the timing isn't right or how my days are so full that I have no space for this job, but I know more than anything that this nutrition is too good not to share! I would be doing my friends, family and acquaintances a HUGE disservice by hiding this nutritional and financial opportunity from them.
I can't help but SHARE SHARE SHARE!!! Share this new-found energy I have, this weight loss secret, this incredible life changing lifestyle with EVERYONE I know! And to think that by blessing others with this nutrition I can get my family and other family's closer to financial freedom -- well hell, it's a total no brainer!

This is kind of incredible, but my team contains so many of my blog followers. You all live in different states and we've gotten to know each other through this nutrition. It's the best journey to be on and I love to love on everything who joins me.

Bryan has since quit his 9-5 job. He certainly still works, but he doesn't have a boss and he works from home. We don't miss a minute of our kids lives. We have the time freedom we've always wanted... time freedom that we used to have when we traveled the country side by side (for all of you who have been reading this blog for a long time, you know what I'm talking about) and we get to truly do life together. He's not my nights and weekend husband. This life is so wonderful and I want it for all of you!
Lets all DREAM BIG together! Anything is possible with our compensation plan, as there's no salary cap, no boss to answer to and no glass ceiling! Us mommy's need to unite - we need to feel alive and be passionate about something other than our families... which is great, but we need something for ourselves!

Please comment below or e-mail me if you want more information. I'd love to hop on the phone with you and explain too!

SoCal part 4 - san diego

Bryan and I hopped in the car and headed south for my companies largest convention of the year! 
It was a packed house -14,000 people from all over the world came.
Not only is nutritional rebalancing real, but it's more fun than I ever imagined it could be!
Who would have thought my superfood could give us such an incredible experience?!
The event started out with a leadership meeting... Bryan and I are somewhere in this picture, haha ;)
Day 1
Night 1 - team night followed by Altitude with some of my favorites!
Night 2 at the START Party at the Omnia Nightclub in downtown San Diego
Day 3
With some of my team who flew in from all over the country!
We were invited to our companies Gala and enjoyed a night with the most elite in the organization.
The cream of the crop are associated with this company and we're so fortunate to call many of these people our FRIENDS.
There's no competition between us, we are constantly rooting for each other and we have no boss to tell us what to do and when to do it.
We are paid based on how hard we work, and fancy dresses and champagne are just extras!
My leader and friend of 8+ years even won Leader of the Year!!
Day 4
Laura rocking it on the main stage for the 3rd time... closing out the entire event here!
So incredibly thankful to be partnered with an organization that puts family first!!
Someone missed his mommy and daddy, so Bryan drove up to Orange County, picked him up at my parents house and drove him back down to San Diego so that we could finish out our last day!

SoCal part 3 - water park fun

(picture quality is all over the place due to iPhones, old phones and cameras, haha!)

SoCal part 2 - sophia's baptism & family pictures

We were so fortunate to be in town for Sophia's baptism. Sophia's daddy is one of Bryan's closest friends and seeing these 3 amigo's with their kiddos (who are all only days apart) was nothing short of fantastic!

 We then attempted a family photoshoot that was not so shockingly a major fail, haha!!
I don't think I'm ever going to get a decent picture of the 4 of us...

3 months

Never got to a 2 month post - oops!

 3 month as of July 6, 2015
Weight: 14 lbs.
Length: 22 inches

Clothes: In 0-3 and some 3-6 month onesies. All 3 month sleepers and 3 month shorts

Health: He's got a little eczema just like his big brother

Diet: Landon's eating 4-5oz (mostly 5oz) at 7:30am, 10:30am, 1:15pm, 4:15pm and he gets his last bottle of the night, which is 7oz, at around 7:15/7:30pm. Somewhere around 3:00am he wakes up for a quick 3oz. He's a big eater, but it sure does take him forever to finish a bottle

Sleep:  Sleep is getting better and better everyday! He's currently fast asleep in his crib somewhere from 8:00 and 8:30pm. He wakes up around 3:00am-ish for a diaper change and small bottle, just to fall back to sleep until about 6:30/7am. We're hoping to get a solid 8pm-7am night in within this next month. Fingers crossed!

 Baby Gear Love: swing, baby bjorn, playmat, bouncer

Likes: sucking fists/fingers, diaper changes, smiling, smiling with tongue out, eating slowly, laying on his back staring up, bath time, warm water on head, being bounced on medicine ball, being worn, sleeping on someone, mommy

Dislikes: being rocked in a rocking chair, car rides

 Landon isn't a big crier, and when he does, it's completely manageable and for obvious reasons

Milestones: no more swaddle, sleeping in crib for naps/nighttime size 2 diapers, coo's, smiles all the time, celebrated Trace's birthday and his first 4th of July, babysitter, holds head up

Landon, I don't even know how put put my feelings for you in words. You are truly special. You are not only my baby, but you look like me too, and that is just the wildest thing ever... to see my genes, with my own two eyes, passed down to the next generation. Your disposition is so incredibly happy and smiley. I've never seen a baby smile quite like you do, and at everything, but especially at me. Unlike your big brother, you sure are a mama's boy! I often tell Daddy that "no one's ever looked at me the way that Landon looks at me" -- It's like you truly see me, look through me, and see me. It's bringing me to tears as I type it because your gaze is that powerful. I can't imagine my world without you in it and I feel so blessed to have been chosen to be your mommy. I'll never forget when Daddy and I found out that you, our littlest boy, was on our way to us. We were on vacation in Carolina Beach and had just gotten in the car to drive to a party store and have them fill a balloon with either pink or blue confetti (for us to pop) and learn your gender from. It was going to be an intimate moment for just daddy and I. As I sat in the car waiting for your Daddy to get in the drivers seat, out from my purse I pulled the sealed envelope with your ultrasound picture in it. I glanced at the envelope, knowing that my future was in it.... and with the sun so bright that day I saw a "Y". I didn't mean to see anything..... but you know as well as I do that there's no "Y" in "girl". Your dad got in the car and I froze. I couldn't believe I had just seen a Y. Or was I seeing things??? I didn't want to ruin the surprise for your dad, but I also couldn't hold it in, so there, in a parking lot in our car I told Daddy that "I saw a Y".... He was SO confused! Then I showed him the Y through the white envelope and we could see that the Y was attached to a 3 letter word. We were both shocked. Daddy honestly believed with everything in him that you were a girl, haha, and he was looking forward to having a daughter. Right then and there we decided that we couldn't wait and we tore open the envelope and there it was - IT'S A BOY!!! It was YOU Landon Nash. And you are everything we ever hoped for...

learning more about nutritional rebalancing at the football hall of fame

24 hour whirlwind road trip to Ohio was a complete success!
We stayed in Chagrin Falls, went to Maran's dads restaurant and capped it off at the Football Hall of Fame for a day of learning and growing with about 60 other sweet souls.
Nutritional rebalancing is so much more than just a physical transformation!
My mind is full of knowledge and my heart is ready to explode.
So blessed to be on this journey with some of my closest friends and love having the freedom to travel with them when I want.

because 4 out of 5 of us are looking
