How are you doing on the exercise??? Princess and I have been walking since 2 weeks and last week attended the Mommy and Me class as particpants instead of instructor! Lots of fun to sweat with other ladies in the same boat of motherhood!

More Mommies

Trying to get everyone to class on the same day for a group picture is IMPOSSIBLE! Here is my 3rd attempt... got about 95% of the ladies over the 3 days! ( See last post for the others)
Tomorrow is my last offical class and I go on maternity leave! Miss Savannah is coming on Wednesday morning! Glad to have stuck with the PHYSICAL FITNESS during pregnancy~ thinking it made for a happy and healthy mommy and baby!

Hoping they are this excited when she is on the outside! julie hope photography did an AMAZING JOB! Going to be using her for the year to come...can't wait to see all the pictures of Little Miss!

Birthday update!!!

The LONG OVERDUE Birthday update!!! Jackson turned 5 in Feburary and Dane 3 in March... we've had lots to celebrate!
Jackson wanted a "solider" theme as he is VERY INTO ANYTHING ARMY related...tanks, helicopters, planes, camo, etc! So we decided on a BOWLING PARTY (gotta keep the kiddos moving before you give them sugar) and "decked" it out in "SOLIDER" gear!
The Cake was a TANK and we also had cupcakes with "ARMY soliders" on top...think TOY STORY GREEN MEN!
It was a hit...Birthday boy and friends ENJOYED a few rounds of bowling, pizza, and cake!! Hope he remembers his special day!!!

Dane is ALL about MICKEY MOUSE!!! ( probably because it's the only cartoon he watches...and our recnet trip to MICKEY MOUSE HOUSE!) We tried to "venture" outside of the box and decided on a MUSEUM party! It was Lots of fun!!! WE had a private room for lunch, CRAFT TIME, and CAKE...of couse MICKEY MOUSE CAKE!! Then we were able to "EXPLORE" the 3 levels of the CHILDREN's MUSEUM....AGAIN KEEP THEM MOVING= potential naptime for everyone!! I think it was a great SUCCESS!!!

Here are the BIRTHDAY BOYS on their special day!!!

Now we await the arrival of little sister...6 more weeks! But WHO's COUNTING???

Are you keeping up with the EXERCISE??? SPRING is here so at LEAST GET OUT AND MOVE IT!!
I'm still MOVING...teaching 3-4 classes a week...LOVE HELPING OTHERS to SWEAT...helps me stay MOTIVATED!!!

NESTING has started

Finishing up the nursery .... awaiting the FINAL paint design...hence the furniture is on "hold mode" at the store...slowly finding some pink clothes...realizing there is lots of things to buy from PINK BLANKETS, onsies, sheets, bedding, etc... all in the name of baby GIRL!!

Anyway...This is how she will STYLE and SAFETY!

Much to do!! Making a promise to myself... POST AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK...starting with BIRTHDAY update!

Woah...Wait a Minute!

I can't believe that it's been a "month" since my last post. Totally skipped over February! There was good reason...lots going on from traveling to the SUPER BOWL in Dallas Tx, to Jackson turning 5, getting the boys room painted and starting on "baby girl's" room, a quick trip to Nashville for Juiceplus...and ALL the other daily joys of motherhood!
All is well... the super bowl was great fun and a check off our bucket list! The half time show was the BEST...loving the BLACK-EYED-PEAS and 1000 dancers on the field!

Jackson turning five was FANTASTIC! He's really growing up into a "big boy" as his attitude and behavior are becoming more caring everyday. His manners and understanding of the outside world are really wonderful to see transpire... his latest comment to me "YES your MAJESTY!". Too funny! He also is "getting the connection" at his Sunday school class and this brings great JOY to my heart!


Things are going well with the pregnancy and I'm staying active by teaching my 3 aerobics classes per week and making sure to get 2 additional cardio sessions in! My GOAL is to teach my last class less than 24 hours before my Csection! No problem...just taking 1 day at a time!

Dane is growing up fast...he turns 3 this week and has successfully been in "BIG BOY UNDIES" for several weeks! The last few days have even been "poop on potty" successes! How wonderful it will be to enjoy NO ONE in diapers or pull-ups...even for just a few months!

Promise to do better with posting!

Brotherly Love

I love this picture! The boys are really excited about having a baby sister! The other night both of them wanted to see my "big belly". It was sweet... lots of pats and kisses were given to her and to hear them talk to my belly was adorable! Thinking our house will be "rocked" come May, but hopefully some added estrogen will prove to be a good thing!

How is your HEALTH journey coming? Any new workouts? Better eating habits?? Remember TODAY is a NEW DAY! Keep moving ahead!

Found this verse and really like it!
Proves to be a good one with the New year still fresh on everyones' minds.
"I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead." Phillippians 3:13

Hubby and I kick started this NEW YEAR with some MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!!
After our first MARATHON last April we decided that we'd like to "go big" and do DISNEY!!
So we signed ourselves up... thinking we might have another baby I went "Donald duck" with the HALF, but hubby took up the slack and decided to go "GOOFY"! Which means a half on Saturday and then a FULL the following of 39.3 miles!!

REALLY PROUD of our accomplishments!!! Me COMPLETING the HALF MARATHON 20 weeks PREGNANT with baby girl! HUBBY truly GOING THE DISTANCE and COMPLETING the GOOFY CHALLENGE! AMAZING what your body can do with a little training and A LOT of determination!!!

So set your sights on a GOAL THIS YEAR!! MAKE it amazing!!! PUSH yourself beyond the "normal" limits and JUST DO IT!!!

Us just before the race!

Taking a moment to capture the "magic" in Magic Kingdom!

Here is where I decided to STOP POWER WALKING and RUN to the FINISH LINE!

Hubby and his DONALD medal!

Me HAPPY to have crossed that FINISH LINE!

Jay just after the FULL MARATHON...sporting the Mickey Marathon medal and the GOOFY medal! 39.3 miles!!!

What's on your FITNESS agenda this year??!!?!? A new strength training plan.... trying yoga....Boot camp class....a HALF MARATHON....or FULL.... maybe even a Triathlon? Find something BIG and make it happen. TRUST ME...the SENSE of ACCOMPLISHMENT OVERIDES the hardwork!
