About Me

Hi, I'm Mrs. Happ! I love Jesus, Mr. Happ and being a mama to our little man. I live off of a steady stream of bone broth, kombucha, Spanglish & top knots.

  • #ad Any other 90’s kids enjoy those Orange Flintstone Push-ups once upon a time? I remember I used to love walking to the gas station or getting one from the good ole’ ice cream man in the summertime. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I tried my hand at recreating that nostalgia for myself and my little guy with these Paleo Orange Dreamsicle Popsicles I whipped up. Plus, I may have mixed in a little chocolate, because there’s always room for improvement right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To make your own you will need: 
Juice of aprx. 2 large oranges
1 cup full fat coconut milk
3/4 cup frozen mango
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
3 drops Orange Vitality Oil (or a tad more if you are using Orange extract) 
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 @hukitchen Orange Dream Vanilla Cashew Butter Dark Chocolate bar ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Blend all ingredients together until you have a smooth, liquid consistency, and pour into your popsicle mold. Place in the freezer until solid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to @hukitchen for sharing the perfect bar with us to amp up the delish factor on this summer treat. #hukitchen #getbacktohuman ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What was your favorite summertime treat as a kid? .

  • Getting out in the sunshine each day has a wide variety of benefits. But like many good things, it’s all about balance and moderation. And while some daily sun exposure can be an excellent and vital part of your overall health and wellness, if you are going to be out in the sunshine for an extended period of time, it is important to be aware of how to protect yourself and your family.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today on the blog I’m sharing “How to Protect your Skin from the Sun Naturally” during these warm summer months and beyond. I’m also highlighting some of my top choices for safe, non-toxic sunscreens for the whole family and sharing in what to look out for when making your purchasing decisions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, shout out to @kortnijeane for gifting us these cute mommy and me swimmers. Note Asher’s stylin’ rash guard- yep, I talk about those on the post too!

  • You da’ BOMB, dad! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Asher helped me create this gift for his dad this year from start to finish. We traced and cut his little hands, taped everything together, and he even helped me decide which font looked best for our card’s message.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once we finished crafting, we set to work in the kitchen making some Keto/Paleo Fat “Bombs” for dad to indulge. These we made with PB, almond flour and cinnamon, although the combination of things you can use to create your own is endless. The nice part about these “no bake” bombs, is that it gives little one’s a chance to make something nearly all on their own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now we just need to work on the secret keeping skills as he tried to, of course, announce to dad immediately upon entering the door yesterday all that we had created for him as I’m busy “shushing” lovingly 🤪 in the background. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Check out my stories today for a few of my favorite photos of Asher and Ryan over these last few years. We were blessed with such a good one’ in you @happsteady_ . .

  • A friend of mine sent me the link to an article about a year ago about a mother in a Mayan village in Yucatán, Mexico. The mother had 5 children, a variety of responsibilities in her home, as well as helped with the family business in her village. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The author of the article asks this mother at one point during their visit, “Do you think that being a mom is stressful?”. She looked at her as if she was from “Mars” and said, “Stressful? What do you mean by stressful?” She goes on to share how it took about five minutes for the interpreter to try and convey what this idea meant to the mother before she finally responded that there are times she worries, but she showed no sense of chronic worry or stress.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The author shares many theories as to why this may be the case. One of the key ideas that stuck out to me when I first read this article and still does today is that the Maya mothers along with so many other cultures across the globe value and embrace “alloparents”. “Allo” simply means “other” and may encompass relatives, neighbors, other mothers etc. that can accomplish the needed tasks set forth in a day alongside you. She shares that in the Mayan village, in particular, all sorts of “allomoms” were floating in and out of one another’s homes all day long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have had the privilege these past few days of spending time with several women in my life throughout both the day and evening who love on me and my little. When I see their little ones laughing alongside mine, when they take the time to truly listen and share their own hearts, when they volunteer to watch my little one and I know he will be well loved, and when I can do the same and be an “allomama” to another babe- well, I’m quickly learning there just really isn’t anything quite like it. I can’t express enough how much the stress washes away and my cup fills up when I can do this motherhood gig alongside others in community. It just feels right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As moms we werent designed to be “stuck in a box”, doing this job designed for a handful of people. It was meant to do together. 
I’ve linked the article “Secrets of a Maya Supermom” in my profile if you want to read more.

  • This morning I set up an obstacle course outside for Asher. He wanted me to draw with him with our sidewalk chalk for the 100th time this season 🤪, so I decided to get creative with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I created circles and squares with numbers and the letters of his name for him to jump. There was a spiral for him to spin, and a makeshift road for him to drive his favorite sandbox truck. I hauled out the basketball hoop for him to make a slam dunk, and even pulled out our balance board to create a little BMX style ramp for his bike part of the way through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll admit, he thoroughly enjoyed it for about 5 minutes before he got distracted by an ant 🐜 (because, toddlers 🤷🏼‍♀️). But within those five minutes I was reminded how many skills little ones can be practicing all at once simply by throwing together something like an obstacle course with chalk and a few outdoor play items. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of skills, bike ramps and obstacle courses, the @xgames Minneapolis @usbankstadium are only 50 days away and my girl @carrie_the_moment has the hookup for all of my Twin Cities friends. For an exclusive ticket offer use Promo Code: CTMX at checkout at
www.xgames.com/minneapolis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And feel free to check out more details of our own homemade “Xgames” Toddler Sidewalk Course 😉 in my stories today. .
