Valentine’s Recap

What a wonderful Valentine’s day!

I gave J a water bottle, like he has been wanting. C got an Elmo shirt, she was more than excited! And I got these wonderful things:

















We are so practical, it’s romantic, I know. But really I LOVE my new lunch organizers! They are awesome and making packing lunches a ton easier.

We had a take out Thai food date night after C went to bed, then I made these:











Hope you all had a Happy Valentine’s Day!


15 Minutes a Day: A New Year’s Resolution

Shortly before this new year’s rolled around I decided I wanted to make a resolution that would actually be possible to keep. So I made it simple:

Exercise 3x a week for 15 minutes each time

To be honest, I am embarrassed that I don’t already exercise more than that. But with my schedule and the fact that I have not exercised regularly in 2 years I decided it was time! Here we are, week 2 of the new year and so far so good. My 15 minutes have included:

1) going for a walk around the block

2) going for a short bike ride

3) My in home (I would be mortified if anyone actually watched me do) routine

My in home routine is as follows:

  • 3.5 minutes jumping jacks
  • 3.5 minutes jogging in place
  • 3 minutes ski jumps
  • 1 minute crunches (50x)
  • 3 minutes strength (15 chest presses, 15 arm curls each side, 15 shoulder raises into a T shape)
  • 1 minute stretches

*I hold some cans of soup during the 3 minutes of strengthening

A little exercise really is better than no exercise!

Small Successes

This weeks small successes was particularly challenging for me this week. It has been one of those weeks that I feel like I am running in circles. So here goes nothing!

1) Applied for a job. I created a resume and got some references together. The whole bit! Just waiting to here back.

2) Got C to Mother’s Day Out on time both days this week, even after I over slept by 50 minutes one of the days.

3) Got inspired and came up with a really good book idea. (I think anyway) I won’t give it away, you’ll have to read it when it comes out, somewhere around 15 years from now 🙂

Thank you guys so much for reading! I Just started getting the Daily Digest from Faith and Family Live. It is what inspired my blog in the first place. Feel free to comment and give me any tips or feed back you can think of! 


Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am still trying to figure everything out, but I will get better as I go!
