amandaseeyoudarrr I never used to wear watches, honestly. I felt super weird and thought they looked stupid on me (just like hats!). But with the help of good old Pinterest and @clusewatches, I saw how they could be styled, and once I found the right style for me, well, now I feel naked without one!

What's one fashion statement you never thought you'd succumb to?

amandaseeyoudarrr If you know anything about me, you know #MrCharlieChaplin is basically my life. He is more than likely allergic to grass, scared to death of flies, terrified of a specific iPhone text tone and looks like a little old man when he sits on his bum. We adopted him 4 years ago and he has brought a tremendous amount of love and laughter to our lives!

So, I decided to partner with @Uber_NYC in hopes to inspire others to adopt a puppy too during the #UberPuppyBowl! Enter the promo code PUPPYNYC to unlock the option. All proceeds from the campaign will be donated to local animal shelters, and I am ALL about supporting a good cause! Tag all your puppy lover friends! #relatable #sponsored

amandaseeyoudarrr I wonder if I took a poll how many people would say I share way too much personal information on social media, and in life.

When I choose to share something from my heart with hundreds of thousands of you, it may come out with love, but it may also come out tinged with bitterness, angst and brokenness. It may also come out of a genuine hope to educate, or inspire, it just depends on the day.

So, why would I choose to put myself out there, knowing how many people are likely criticizing my "over share" or are judging my life? Because... What's the alternative? There is a reason we always root for the underdog, and feel so deeply connected to them! Should I as an alternative, share less, so as to put up a facade of how perfect my life is? Should I put on my face and let them think I have not a care in the world, causing them to feel extremely alone when they're experiencing their trials? Should I care less about how the Lord wants to use my brokenness? I used to think He would only want to use me once I was out of the pit- once I was refined, pruned, shiny and had perfected my faith. I never considered that he could use me while I was in it, and boy am I IN IT. And once I'm not going through infertility, I still plan to show up and let ALL of myself be seen, through every area of life. And it is anything but easy.

But, in the words of Brené Brown, "If you're not in the arena getting your ass kicked, I'm not interested in your feedback." So, if you're one of the rare ones that's putting yourself out there, to friends and family and maybe even social media, I commend you. You are inspiring, you are brave, and you are changing the world without even knowing it. We need more people like you if we are ever going to establish any kind of true connection.

amandaseeyoudarrr @samciurdar and I are leaving Arizona tomorrow and heading back to Cali! We've had nothing but sun since we got here, and a few hours after we leave tomorrow, a major blizzard is blowing in! And, in Corona it's supposed to rain and by the time we get home, it's going to be done and then we are back to nonstop sun. 😑 Folks... We really do bring the sunshine. 1w

@samciurdar and I are visiting his little sister and gonna go hiking in Sedona tomorrow. Do any of you have recommendations on the best spot to go to? And do you know if there's still snow there?! I have a feeling it's been too warm for it to survive

amandaseeyoudarrr "Perhaps we only leave
so we may once again arrive,
To get a bird's eye view
Of what it means to be alive.
For there is beauty in returning,
Oh how wonderful, how strange,
To see that everything is different
But know it's only you who's changed."

amandaseeyoudarrr I have LOVED doing yoga in the colder months! But... I'm usually bouncing between jackets because I don't really have one designated for my workouts. (Also, I live in SoCal. What is a jacket? 😛) So, I partnered with #Ideology and received the absolute softest hoodie I've ever owned -- it's my total go-to now! Winter, please don't go! #BelieveinMovement #ad @macys

PS - where are all my other yogis?

PPS- you can find these items only at macys.com/ideology

amandaseeyoudarrr I experienced the most divine appointment of my life today.
This morning, Sam and I went to a church we have never been to. During the greeting time, we said hello to the couple in front of us. We had no more than a minute of casual conversation, mostly about where we lived, etc. The guy asked Sam if we have any kids and Sam told him we didn't yet. The guy replied "Well that's good! Enjoy your time together." The entire service I was feeling a prompting for me to make an effort to be around these people more. To like, become their friends -- I don't know how to explain it. I remember asking God if they were going through infertility or something, I didn't know why He felt so strongly about us befriending them. I felt that pull on my heart the entire service which I thought was so odd. Still, I told the Lord, "No thanks. If you want something to happen, you do it." The service ended and as we stood up to collect our things, this guy turns around to us and says "So.... (he was kinda stumbling a bit), you guys are having trouble getting pregnant." I was completely dumbfounded and just stared at him in disbelief and said "What??" And immediately I was bawling of course! I felt as though I was staring the Holy Spirit straight in the face. The guy asked to pray over us and grabbed us tissue; we all 4 ended up crying together. I couldn't believe he just turned around and read me like a book, especially after I was feeling so led to be around them. Then they tell us they have 3 of their own and are in the process of adopting twins from Ethiopia. What an amazing couple to befriend us!!! Can you believe it? I have heard things like this happening but never have I ever experienced this personally. In a season where I have felt God's deafening silence more often than not, this was a day where he shouted his love for me, and that He is still here no matter the pain.

  •   elizabeara Beautiful. The Spirit moves in such wonderful and wild ways! God knows the desires of our hearts. It's hard to believe and trust, but He has a better plan for us than we do. Grace with yourself :-) Peace be with you! 2w

  •   lizballmaier That is amazing!!!! Definitely from the Lord!! 2w
  •   daviddmorse This is beautiful. Having gone through four years of infertility and then a failed adoption when people extended themselves just to weep with that is when we felt most in the presence of Jesus. It doesn't always end with children, but God did give us precious twins 8 months ago without any drugs or fertility treatment. It is the biggest story of grace we get to share now. 2w
  •   daviddmorse My wife and I are traveling to Iceland in a couple months so I found you by your hubs hashtag. Been following him a while but never really read many of his captions. I'm so glad I paused on you guys' Iceland photos so I could then click to your profile and read this. God bless you and may His face shine on you and in both of you to tell of his grace. Amazing grace. Amazing Jesus! 2w
  •   kayeisthename That's amazing. Praying for you, guys!! 2w
  •   taylornicole0408 Praying for you guys!!! You have been on my mind and heart! @amandaseeyoudarrr 🏻🏻 2w
  •   joannnnabannanna I want to tell you something that I've wanted to tell you for a little over a year now...but just didn't know how. I've always wanted to tell you that the gift you will give a child by opening up your hearts to them could possibly be the most amazing thing you do with your life. Idk why, but think about adopting. You can even find a little baby. 1w

amandaseeyoudarrr I am working with @AbbottGlobal to find out what people do to live their best lives! For me, the words "Just go" come to mind. Whether we're out mountain biking, road tripping or even getting stuck on a glacier in Iceland (please Lord, never again)... This is how I live #lifetothefullest, by being outside!

What makes you feel like you're living your best life? #fullosophy
