Happy Monday


Park Bench

I took this photo last fall at the park but it is one of my favorites, can't wait to for it to be warm enough to go to the park again.



This is what I've been seeing lately, crying, crying, and more crying.  My girl hasn't been feeling well and might be getting her two year molars, which is probably why she's been more crabby than usual.  But I'm her mamma, and I still think she looks adorable, even when she's crying.


And I just found out that I was picked Top 5 for my photo for Captivus Living's photography challenge serene, yay!  Please vote for me here if you haven't already.

I Heart Faces: Anything But a Face


The challenge this week is anything but a face, so I picked a photo of my little girl's curly pigtail, I like how golden it looks in this shot.  

Check out more photos here: 

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Capture the Sky

I'm going to use these hand weights to workout everyday this week, and just loving how strong I feel.

She is my life and I love her.

I was going to delete this blurred photo (one of many) of my daughter, but I decided to try and "save" it through editing, and I think it turned out awesome.  I love the movement in this shot.

GET FIT and Selfie Saturday

So I fell off the bandwagon last week but I'm am back on and ready to work out.  I found some more workout dvds on Netflix, Self's Beach Body and Sleek and Trim (or something like that).  They're good, get your heart rate up,  and works out practically everything, I'm sore after doing it.  And I feel a little stronger, great feeling.  

Week 3

Height and Weight:  5'6 and 134.6 lbs (-3 lbs.)

Fitness Challenges for the Week:  Work out at least 5 days, alternating strength toning and cardio.

Food Challenges for the Week:  Eat more fruits and veggies, water, salads, and drink less soda.  I don't want to give it up because I find this makes me crave it even more, and then I'll have 4-5 sodas in 2 days.  Maybe a soda once a week won't kill me?

How Did it Go:  Alright, not great.  Didn't lose any weight, actually gained a pound since last check-in, but I feel a little stronger which is cool.  I think I just need to push myself harder.

Failures and Slip-Ups:   I've had good days, then a bad day, kind of struggling right now.  I am eating more fresh veggies though, which is good.

Weekly Challenge Wisdom:  (From my husband) Don't give up, keep on going (don't know if that's wisdom but it's all I could think of).

Advice:  Hop back on the bandwagon, we can do this!  Try a new workout, mix it up, it'll make it fun again.

Self Portrait:  

Couples Selfie ~ Missed last weeks check-in (whoops) so here's that one.  Used the car as a tripod and the hubs was not very willing to cooperate so I just got one shot, and I almost fell in the snow. 


Arms Length Selfie ~ I originally wanted to curl my hair and do full makeup, but when I got out of the shower yesterday morning and saw my wet hair, I thought it would be cool to do a more natural self portrait with wet hair and lite makeup. 

I did two edits, one in color and one in black and white, what do you think?

It's Been Awhile

I haven't posted in a while, guess I was trying to focus on working out and other stuff.  So now I feel the need to post a lot of pics to make up for it, just warning ya!


I've been pretty good about my eating healthy this week, so I thought we could go to the coffee shop this morning to treat myself to a small skim mocha, yum!  The foam is the best part.

We also bought a chocolate chip scone and split it amongst the three of us, Lucy loved it.

Something Blue



She thought puppy should have some too.


Pretty clouds



I don't post too many photos of my husband because he won't cooperate, so I forced him to smile today so I could show everyone how cute he is (at least I think so).


No signs of spring anytime soon (sigh).  Maybe in a month or so.
