It is amazing! I wish somebody would have encouraged me to go a long time ago and that is why I am writing this post. If you are looking for an aerobics class where you can get a thorough workout and strength training without the intimidation of a gym, then this is your place! I encourage anyone to try out a class and see for yourself, YOU WILL BE SOLD! I am hooked! I have been going every morning to the 8:15 class and my location has childcare which makes it very nice. The prices are very reasonable and you get unlimited classes!…. A friend and I just signed up to do the “Attendance Challenge”… it is where you do 60 classes (average 30 classes each) by July 31st! I’m pumped!

New Blog Layout!

My friend from high school Amy did my new blog layout for FREE! I love it and appreciate all of her hard work. If you are interested in having her design a layout for you head on over to 926 Designs she would love to help you out!

I need to post some recent pictures of Audrey soon. The problem is… I haven’t taken any. She is growing up soo fast! I will try and take some today!… She is walking every where these days and I love it! Everyone seems to always warn moms about children getting “mobile”, but honestly I love it! She can entertain herself so much easier. I am thoroughly enjoying this stage. She is also talking a lot.

  • She says "Hello” and holds her hand or anything she is holding up to her ear like a phone.
  • She says “Bye Bye” to everyone and waves along with it.
  • Makes the baby sign for milk and says “mmm”
  • “Bath”
  • “Momma” “Dadda”
  • I believe the other day she said “elmo” – Her new favorite!

Ive definitely gotten into the “nesting phase” and its paying off! I’m cleaning out everything! It is taking me forever to clean each room in our house, but it so worth it. I have bags and bags of things to take to Goodwill and am enjoying our organized clean lifestyle. :) I want to get my house organized and clean before this baby comes. I know I still have a while, but time is flying by!

Its a GIRL!!!

Many of you knew from Facebook that we are having another girl! I was not prepared to hear this one at all! But, the sono-tech is about 95% sure. I have to admit that is what it looked like to me!

I’m excited about this new journey. In my head I did not see us having two girls, but after getting over the initial shock, I was thrilled! I can’t wait for all the matching clothes, bows, pink and all things girly that come with sisters!! God knew this all along and He has great plans for our family and two beautiful little girls!

I am anxious to name this precious baby, but Evan and I are both having a hard time. The names we really like right now are Ava and Madeline. I would really like an A name to go with Audrey. Ava and Audrey go great together, but I’m definitely open to anything. Other names that have been tossed around are Ella and Harper. We are using the middle name Marie. If you have any names.. please share! I would love any ideas you have!

I met a little girl today and her name was Emery. I really like that name, but I don’t want  two names ending in“ey”.

What do you do when you see someone in public whose blog you read, but don’t actually know?

Nothing. :) My parents and I went out to Mi Cocina in Dallas on Saturday night and I saw a family whose blog I read. It is not a blog I read often, but I definitely recognized them. As soon as I got home I called my best friend and told her. We got a good laugh about it and both said if it was the PoeFam, (a blog we both have followed for years and discuss often) we would have not hesitated to introduce ourselves. :)

If you see our family in public and you read our blog, please feel free to say Hi, we would love to meet you! But, I definitely know our following is very small…. and I’m ok with that!

Favorite Snacks These Days


Amazing granola bar! Just 1 point on WW. At night when I wake up starving I grab one of these! It definitely hits the spot!

baby carrotshummus 

1 cup of baby carrots = 0 pts

2 table spoons of roasted red pepper hummus = 1 pt

Perfect snack!

vegetable soup

1 cup vegetable soup = 1 pt and counts as 1 vegetable for the healthy food guidelines. 

fruit bars

HEB Fruit Bars = 1 pt

I would love to hear what some of your favorite healthy snacks are. This pregnant momma needs some ideas! I really feel the hunger getting more intense. It wakes me up in the middle of the night. I try to ignore it with a few sips of water, but it is impossible. I definitely did not have that with Audrey!
