I don't think you do...

Lyssa, Parker, and Tate...

Do you know how much I love you?

Things have been different around here for you three. You've recently found out you are about to move out of the only town you really ever remembered us living in. Your rooms have been completely changed from "your space" to "show space". You are ALWAYS asked to pick up, "Don't forget we have to keep the house clean." Your dad is back and forth from town to town. Your mom is sometimes(ok always)a basket case trying to balance selling a house, looking for another one, running after you three, and trying to keep things normal...whatever that is.

All the while, you three just keep smiling, loving me, hugging me, and helping me. You amaze me. I treasure your love. I thank God everyday for giving me your love for which I feel so undeserving.

Ripped - Part 2

So, I finished up week one Sunday. I did the video a total of six days last week. I never got really sore, just kept a light soreness. On a scale from 1-10 (judging on toughness) I would give it a 4. I followed the diet plan everyday but Saturday. I haven't got back on the scale yet, so I don't know if I've lost weight. I think I'm going to wait until the end of week two. Overall, it was fun and the time passed fast.

Yesterday, I started week two and my buns are burning! Which is a good thing. Workout two is noticeably harder, I would give it a 5.5. I sweat, a lot! I did exercises I have never done before so I had to really think about what I was doing. Best of all, I released some major stress. That's why I love working out. I can be in the worst mood ever, and feel like a new person when I'm done.

Are you like that? Share your workouts with me, so I can stay motivated. It always helps to workout with someone. Wish me luck on week two...I think it's going to be a good one!

It's that time of year! Halter tops, sun dresses, and swim suits!

So, that's why I started this...

Yesterday was my first day, and I have to say it was fun! I love Jillian Michael's! My favorite things about it is it's only 24 minutes! This video is much like her 30 day shred. It is a 3-2-1 program and has 4 different workouts. Meaning 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs. There are three different circuits, each one gets a little harder. You change workouts every week so there isn't much repetition. It also comes with a 30 day meal plan. I have found that everything is easy to make, and most of it doesn't require a lot of time. So, if you're like me and need a FAST workout, you should give this a try. I'll check back in every Monday to let ya know my progress! If you decide to do it, let me know so we can chat about it! Or share your favorite workout! Happy spring!!!

Come On In!!!

So, due to the fact that the computer with all my pictures is packed away and in the garage, I am taking a break from last years recap. We have been very busy these last two weeks! Most everyone knows we are moving to Temple! Yea! So, we have been organizing, decluttering, cleaning, fixing, and painting! Luckily, our house was in good condition before we started, we just had to do some touch ups! The good news is that it's finally on the market!!
I adore our house! Every time I pull up in the drive way, it makes me happy!

It was built in 1927. When we bought it, it had just been flipped! It was like buying old but getting new. The best of both worlds! It's the cutest little vintage home! Come on, I'll show ya around!
The living room just as you enter the front door...
We redid the hardwood floors last year...sooo pretty!

Looking back at the front door...

Another View...

Living Room/Dinning Room Area...

On to our kitchen. I love this kitchen! I have never lacked for cabinet space!

Isn't the red wall so fun! I love red! It's my favorite!

The Master Bedroom...
You can't see it but on that little red heart pillow on the chair painting it says A.D+C.D!!

Tate's bedroom...

Lyssa and Parker's bedroom. We have completely changed it up. There use to be two twin beds but we made more space by putting in this daybed. You can't really see it, but I got it at a garage sale for 10 bucks and repainted it! It is now one of my favorite furniture pieces in the house! Lyssa and Parker will have new beds greeting them in Temple!

We spend ALOT of time here. Just hanging out in our back yard!

Aw, we had some great times in this house! We had some great times in Abilene! Lyssa and Parker learned how to ride there bikes here, they started school here, Tate was born here, we loved the Coogs here! I met some of my best friends here that will always hold a special place in my heart! I could go on and on. This house and this town have been good to us! I feel blessed we were apart of it!

Oh, boy!

It's funny how life works. Just when you think your family is complete, that nothing could get any better, it does...

Tate has brought us more smiles, laughter, joy, gratitude, and love! From the first time we saw his little face, we were head over hills in love!! And I do mean head over hills!!!

Not just me and Aaron, but his brother and sister adore him!

It seems impossible that a year has gone by, and that you are now one year old! I am so deeply in love with you my baby boy.

Thank you for always reminding me what life's all about. It's about all the moments you can't capture, but the moments you will always remember in your heart. And thanks to you my dear, my heart is full!
