One on One

Had a great day today! Started out w/ breakfast with Andrew before sending him off to school. I then went to help my mom (who is hosting the family for thanksgiving) get some food ready.

We made THREE pies: pumpkin, lemon and chocolate. Green beans, sweet potatoes and cucumbers. (my mouth was ALREADY ready for thanksgiving!)

Andrew got home from school, and it was time for lunch! Sweet potato fries, chicken and veggies w/ a sprinkle of parmesan. (I did have a few tootsie rolls for dessert- not paleo, but Ididn’t eat a million like I use to!)

After hanging out, it was time to clean! this house needed it! Andrew did help a lot, but then took a mini break haha. Love his funny face!

After dinner, I had yoga on the schedule! My neighbor Pam and I got a groupon and found this AWESOME yoga place. This is actually our second groupon w/ them.

Well, Pam kindof bailed. But instead of saying “ok Im going to stay home too” I left the house and got my butt to the yoga studio. And it was JUST ME and the teacher!

At first, I was like PLLEASE someone else come. And then when no one did, I just embraced the opportunity. I actually did a new pose too!

But I didn’t do it in heels! haha


Question for you:

What are you doing for thanksgiving?

What household chore do you HATE?

Birthday week + cabinet update~!

Hi everyone! Sorry my blogging has been completely crazy this week. Trying to get my house ready for my bday party on saturday resulted in no sleep, hardly having time to eat and no exercise. Well unless you count pulling up tree roots

 (yep. this happened. in 95 degree heat. yep. Im stupid. haha)

Anyway. I had a pretty good birthday. I turned 26 yesterday (it feels the same as 25 hahA)


Friday and saturday were a blur. All I ate on saturday was a banana, apple, and then dinner that I made for the party. It was so wild because I was cleaning the ENTIRE house and getting the kitchen put together. But I think pictures work best!

 The cabinets are in, but I will post pictures about that tomorrow. All that work, deserves its own post 🙂





Flowers to get my house all pretty!


Flowers from my friend Adam

my mom made my cake! Funfetti of course!

Having a party, can be A LOT of work. Especially when trying to finish up a kitchen. It isn’t finished by any means but its starting to feel like a real house now! I need a new counter top, and then I will be moving in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today, was LOOOOWWWW key. I didn’t end up falling asleep last night till 230am!! who am I? I was up texting my son’s dad……….yep.

Anywho, today included sleeping in, heading to the pool

And then I went to get my birthday present

I got a trimmer from my parents for my birthday. Funny-yes. Needed-defiantly.

Nooowwww to learn how to use it haha

Andrew had a blast.

Now im watching Iron Man, and going to bed. I work tomorrow, and my goal this week is to get sleep and get to the gym!

Question for you:

How did you spend your weekend?

For your birthday, do you prefer practical gifts?

Thursday Eats and Yoga

my son had some AWESOME sprinkle pancakes for his birthday, I opted for blueberry/banana pancakes. DELICIOUS

At noon, I had a 1/2 of a turkey subway sandwich with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and peppers.

I took my son to the pool, so after that I need some lunch! I had three meatballs on an open sandwich, watermelon, and corn

My son had been picked up by his dad (they are going to the lake) so I took a nap! It was AWESOME, except it was cut short. I woke up to go to yoga with my mom and neighbor.

Im so glad we went! It was defiantly what I needed. The only bad thing was, Amy, the lady leading the class. Did A LOT of downward dog poses. Im not a big fan of them. It just feels akward and I dont feel that I get a good stretch.

When I got home, I showered. I WAS SWEAATTTYYY. And I had so much energy! I went through ALL My son’s toys. I had a trash, keep, and donate pile. It felt so good to weed out the toys he is too old for, or are broken!

It was 9pm and I was starving. I hadnt eaten in about 5 hours. So I listened to my awesome sparkfriends and got some protein!

Open egg sandwich. While checking my email.

WOW. Pretty good on all categories today. And this doenst even count the calories burned at yoga! WAHOO!


Surprisingly, I am not that tired. (ITS 1130!!!) because last night I was up till 3am. Nope I wasnt at a bar or out with friends. I was texting. My son’s dad and I were talking about him, their trip this weekend, the past. Basically everything. (hence the reason we were texting for four hours!) I dont know what it means. Or where things will lead from here. Maybe we just needed to talk. have closure. or become better friends, so we can work together to take care of our son. Or maybe one day we will get back together. Who in the world knows (well GOd does) thats why I have been doing a lot of praying.

Many of you have been there through EVERTYHIGN that has happened. (well at least what I have time to blog about haha) . But I want to be honest what is going on in my life. At the moment, I just know that God is guiding me. I can feel him here, because I just have this sense that Everything Is Going To Be Ok. (whatever that my mean haha)

Now I am off to bed, with the hopes of no text messages and sleeping in late!

Question for you:
what is your favorite yoga pose?

P90X and St patrick’s Day Parade

My son  slept in till 8am!! wahoo!

 (im still tired though….I can’t sleep.  alot on my mind)

Breakfast was left over pancakes from yesterday- STILL SOOO yummy!

I KNEW I needed to get a workout in, but going to the gym meant my son would have to stay in the gym daycare and I hate doing that if I dont have to. So instead. I started P90X. Remember how I did the evaluation….a few weeks ago haha

Well I did the core exercise. And I was sweaty, but it wasnt as CRAZY  as I had heard. But then again—its only the first DVD I have done haha

I grabbed a pear and we headed to the

St. Patricks Day parade in downtown StLouis


I should have eaten a real meal and drank A TON of water, because I was SOOOO dehydrated. My bad.

and after taking pictures of EVER car, this was his favorite haha. He doesn’t understand why I take all these pictures, but now he asks me to take pictures of EVERYTHINGGGGG. Including the free sodas we got!
yup...only tractors in a STL parade haha

Afterwards we went to lunch at schlafly’s brewery.We started out with pretzels…huge…amazing…and I had twoI ordered soup and salad, but I was full from pretzel and cheese, so only ate soup. But I drank AT LEAST 4 glasses of water and 2 diet pepsi. (dehydrated much?)

yummy cheesy beer soup

Back home we watched Toy Story

After clipping a million couple coupons for cleaning supplies, we headed to target!

I ended up saving 8 BUCKS! SCORE!
