Happy Spring!

I could not be more excited for sunshine, walks to the park, farmers market, bike rides, running outside, cotton dresses, picnics, hiking, easter egg hunts, Mother’s Day and being THIS much closer to the summer heat!

right now:

“The things that make us safest from others, makes us least from ourselves”

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!

We REALLY love St. Patty’s Day!

Green shamrock pancakes were a hit! Miss Liv had 3 of them and a glass of green milk!

I piped out 60 of these bad boys.. why? I don’t really know, I only had 18 cupcakes.
{mint chips melted in the microwave and piped into shamrocks}
Bakerella, watch out!
I made cupcakes for the nice people I work with…
and because we cant eat cupcakes! I really just wanted to bake and needed SOMETHING to do with them..
I did save 4!
I couldn’t help myself, these are the world’s best cupcakes!
Liv wanted nothing to do with wearing green… but she didn’t want “2 hair clips” so I put green ones in!

We painted our nails and I made pesto to put on top of chicken. It was a super fun day! I cant wait til next year, I’m going to call Lucky the Leprechaun and have him come visit our house…

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!

no longer peppy..

I was doing lunges. I was tired, but not anymore tired then I have been doing P90x. I was doing a backwards lung to the right and I lost my footing. I am pretty clumsy. I went to the left and my knee decided it wanted to go right.. it popped a couple times and I laid on the floor and cried out in pain. “ow, ow, oh my god, Ow!” I have never felt anything quite like it. Thank God Mike was home, and our doctors office open for a small window of time on Saturdays. 074

As far as they know it’s a sprained knee. A very sprained knee. But if the pain doesn’t go away by Monday then I get to have an MRI done to look for muscle or tissue tearing. In the mean time, this is is me..

Leg up

It definitely puts a damper on my getting fit for summer plans. I’m super bummed out about all this. Everything was going so so good and now I feel like  lump. I know I need time to heal and I know that I will feel better before I know it, but I want to feel better NOW! Okay, I will stop whining! One of the perks of getting hurt, friends bring cupcakes!

Yum! Thanks Sam!

The one where everyone decides that I’m nuts and probably starts to hate me..

On February 28th, Mike and I started a journey into healthy living. I know what everyone is thinking:
“You guys ARE tiny! Why do you need to diet?”
“Really?! you are going to waste away into nothing”
“You are so hot, you don’t need to change a thing!” (Okay, I made that one up.. )

Honestly, my side the family struggles with heart disease. My Dad had a sextuple bi-pass in his early twenties. That is really really rare. The odds are stacked against me. I refuse to go down because of my health. I have been blessed with a fantastic metabolism, but if I don’t actually get up and work my heart and become healthy, I will just be an out of shape, lump on the couch.

We bought P90X last year. Mike had made it a month into it, but then quit when I got pregnant. Something about your wife being able to eat a whole pan of brownies and not being able to eat anything but spinach, really didn’t help him feel motivated. So we decided that we needed to start again. You know what? I absolutely LOVE working out with my husband. The support that he gives me the whole workout is so amazing. I feel closer and more connected to him. We high five each other like dorks and constantly encourage each other to do more reps or just finish the ones we started. Nothing is more wonderful! It seems so cheesy, but without him being on the same page as me, I don’t think that we could do it.

We are 3 weeks into the program. The diet is RIDICULOUS! It is very tedious and measuring and weighing your food is hard work. But I can actually say that now I don’t mind the food choices. They are actually good! You actually get sauces to eat on your meat. It’s not just bland chicken. You can add a honey-chile sauce or even gravy! Right!? That is fantastic! There are soups loaded with veggies and breakfast scrambles that aren’t terrible either. The best part? I get to eat cheese. I LOVE cheese. It fat free, but you cant even tell!

The program itself is awesome too! I don’t get bored and the switch up between upper and lower body everyday is awesome! There is Yoga, Plyometrics and Abs too! I do sometimes, get tired of Tony talking… But I get that way with every workout video {Um.. hello Julian Michael's shred.. SO ANNOYING!} But at the beginning there is an option to just to do music and no cues. Or no music and the cues. I do that sometimes and just rock out to Pandora.

Anyways, I’m braving the internet world and posting my before photos:


Um.. I also posted Mike’s. I think he is so sexy.. anyways.. he will kick my ass for posting these later ;) Oh, and Thanks Isaac! I love your gift of stretch marks!

So I feel like I should also include that 3 weeks into the program, I have lost 7lbs! Mike has lost 4lbs!

I love spending money??

I love polka dots..

and coffee.. like a lot..

So it was only necessary that I purchase these fantastic and wonderful mugs..


Aren’t they amazing! I smile just looking at the picture!

$29 at One Kings Lane


Don’t worry, I got out my allowance envelope and I pulled out the money and I will deposit it at the ATM like a good girl on a budget.
