Home Sweet Home

One REALLY big reason things have been so quiet around here lately is that the hubs and I decided it was finally time to put our little place on the market and search for a home that meets the needs for the next season of our lives.

Honestly, we hadn’t planned on doing this for another year or so. However when the “perfect” house came on the market we suddenly found ourselves with a mortgage pre-approval and 60% of our belongings in storage.

When that house promptly fell through- and I do mean promptly (all of this transpired in the course of 5 days) we decided that this was just God’s nudge to move on. That house wasn’t meant for us BUT moving on to what HE has planned- definitely was.  SO- cut to 3 weeks later and our little place is freshly groomed, going on the market today (eeeek) and ready for it’s next family.


As for us, well we aren’t exactly sure where we are going to end up. BUT the fun starts now. Ready to get our house hunt on and see what the future holds for our little family.

What are your “must haves” when looking for a home?

Standing Up

Hi Yall!! It is me again. After a couple months of just buckling under some personal and professional challenges I am dusting myself off and getting back to my goals.


I am super disappointed in how much I have backslid but the truth is- you only have to get it right once. I don’t have any big plans or grand things to say. Just getting back to it, being honest, and hopefully keeping my eye on the prize.


With that said, goals are to re-lose the pounds I let creep back on, get back to my strength training, and then take it from there. As for today, my goal is to get down at least a gallon of water and flush some of these toxins right on out! Dont give up on me…or on yourself! I can tell you I wont!


A Tale of Two Weekends

How has this weekend gone by in such a flash? The little is napping while I put together my first 21 Day Fix grocery list. Holy details Batman! People swear by this program but I am looking at these containers like whaaaaaat?

Basically, this reinforces natural choices and portion control. But the color coding- AGH! My nerd side loves it and my busy side is annoyed but we will make it work. I am actually really excited!

I wanted to share some fun photos from my trip with “the red head” aka Kristen to see Train last weekend. YES, we see them every summer and YES it is always super fun to get away with the girls for a hot minute.

This weekend is looking a little different. The hubs is taking his turn for a beach camping adventure with the guys. So the little and I are holding it down here with some splash park, swimming, and bonding time!
