Friday Favorites 5/27/16

Hi all! I hope today finds you in great spirits! This week has been all around fantastic over here! Lots of favorites for today Linking up with Heather and Katie! Summer Fun: Wednesday was beautiful so we had to get out and enjoy it! I found this bin I have had and figured it’d make a great little pool for Annabelle, so I set it up with water before her nap, the sun warmed it up, and she played in {Read More}

Making the Most of Your Workouts

Before I had Annabelle, I worked out 6 days a week and typically an hourish each time. I really didn’t expect things to change on that aspect, but life throws you curveballs (and I was clearly naïve in my thinking.. oops!) I truthfully thought you had to work out for an hour. No way could you see results in workouts that are less than that! If I did a strength workout for 25-30 minutes, you better believe I found something {Read More}

Tis the Season to work that CORE!

It’s that time of the year when everyone starts working their core for bathing suit season! With that in mind, complete this core workout to tone it up and make those muscles pop! Want to know a way to make Monday even worse? Get 10 yards of mulch delivered. Even knowing it was coming didn’t make that mound look any smaller! Thankfully I married a gem and we work well as a team. When Annabelle napped, I did the weeding, {Read More}

Getting out of the House Weekend and Birthday Celebrations

Hey guys! Happy Monday! How are you all? Did you have a good weekend? Ours was great! We were out of the house so much and it felt really nice. Friday: After work and a doctor appointment for A, we went to my Aunt’s house for a Lularue party. If you’re like I was a month ago and didn’t know what this was, it’s a clothing line that is similar to other house parties. My cousin recently became a consultant, {Read More}

Annabelle: 7 Months

Another month has gone by and I find myself wondering how that’s possible! I love this girl more than anything and treasure the time I do spend with her. This past month has been my favorite (I probably say that every month, though…) so let’s take a look! She is in 6-9 month clothing, and in some 3-6 month things. It’s more winter clothes and long sleeves that she is in 3-6 because her 6-9 doesn’t really have those! Likes: {Read More}

The Memories Photos Represent

If you would scroll through my phone, I have over 2,000 pictures, and that’s on a light day. I take photos all day long, and always have my phone beside me to do just that. Many people say that we shouldn’t have our phones glued to our hand and that we should “live in the moment” instead of taking pictures. I do agree with that, to a point. Seven months ago, Annabelle was born. She has grown from a 7.7 {Read More}

Finding Time to Workout With a Baby is Hard

Finding time to workout with a baby is hard, but still doable. I’m here speaking on the other side of the “just find the time to get it done” mindset, because it’s not always true.  Good morning, everyone! How are you today? Thanks so much for the birthday love yesterday! You know how to make a girl feel special! Today’s post is a topic I’ve had on my mind for a while, and am now getting to posting. Before I had {Read More}

On my 26th Birthday

Last week someone asked me how old I was, and it took me a minute to actually determine my age. Does that happen to anyone else? Regardless, today I turn 26 years old. I sort of forgot my birthday was even today! I thought it’d be fun to share 26 things I’ve learned in my 26 years. 26 Things I’ve Learned on my 26th Birthday The best things in life aren’t things. Trust your gut You can love others more {Read More}
