Boot Camp Transformation: 14 Weeks

I can’t believe it’s been 8 weeks since I wrote my last boot camp update! Time flies when you’re lifting heavy stuff.  Hah. Definitely check out the first update to see what my boot camp classes are all about and how it helped transform my post-baby body into a stronger and healthier version of me!  [...]


This post is sponsored by Sleep Innovations. Sleep – precious sleep. As you guys know, I just renovated our bedroom to be more “hotel like” in quest of a better night’s sleep. And guess what?

Visitor Fun

Summmmmmertime! As last week’s not-so-great weekend (all that sickness!) a fun weekend was a welcomed change.  The best part was my blogging buddy Kath and her family came to visit us!  We try to get together at least once a year.  <3 Kath and I went to the Zac Brown Band concert on Thursday night.  [...]

Tomato Basil Grilled Cheese

Things are… looking up!  Not “great” yet but getting closer.  After my not-so-fun weekend, I took some big steps to improve the situation on Monday.  First things first: a date with my gym hot tub (so I could get a momma break and ease my aching body).   Step two was getting my back adjusted again [...]


I usually pop in on Mondays with a fun recap of our weekend, but this weekend was anything but fun. In fact, it was pretty dreadful.  I hate to vent (because who wants to read a vent?!) but please… let me vent.   Wednesday – Experienced middle-of-the-night severe stomach pains. Thursday – Realized that I [...]
