What I’m Loving Lately

Hello hello!

Look at me, carving out some time to do some blogging! I feel so out of the blogging loop these days but am back at reading my favorites and hopefully spending more time here!  Although, thanks to Instagram and Snapchat, I feel like I am still “in the know” with my favorite blogger peeps!

Anywho, today I wanted to highlight a few things I’m lovely lately!

A California King Bed

Oh yeah, you read that right, we have upgraded! Friends moving = us buying their bed!

Someone seems to think we bought this for her. Hmmmm

Wall Décor

We re-arranged our room and had huge empty wall space, so the hubby did some shopping! (Thank you, Amazon).  He must know me really well, picked this out all by himself! Love!

Oh Paris, I have yet to visit you, but I will.

RX Bars

Okay, I have tried pretty much all protein bars out there. Seriously. My go-to has been Cliff Bars, which are a little high in sugar (I know) but they are the only ones that I like and fill me up! I actually hadn’t heard of these until a friend of mine was snacking on one the other day. All the ingredients are listed on the front and they taste Good! I don’t see them at every grocery store yet but snagged some at Trader Joe’s the other day.

Blogilates Workout Videos

Um I just did the PIIT (Pilates Intense Interval Training) today. It was legit. I love the variety in her workouts and she has SO many online videos. Perfect to squeeze in during naptime when I can!

I’m Running Again!

I survived my first 6 mile run last weekend since…. gosh when I was pregnant with the twins. So it’s be a LONG time. I’m obviously slower than I want to be, but it felt great to get those miles in. For the longest time I wasn’t going above 3 miles!

 My poor dog is out of shape too- haha, so it’s good for both of us.

I do want to complete another half marathon soon, but don’t know if I’m ready to commit just yet. It would either need to be in the next few months or not until Septmeber/October bc I don’t want to do long runs in the summer heat. Yuck.

Donovan is Sleeping!!

What, Who Me?

Okay I feel like this has been going on long enogh (3 weeks) so I am not jinxing it, but our little man officially sleeps through the night! Yay!!

Once in awhile he will move around and get stuck in the corner of the crib (pretty hilarious really) and I go in and move him….but other than that, we are finally getting some sleep! He typically goes down between 6:30-6:45 and wakes up between 6 and 6:30. Of course I’d love a later wake up time but I am not complaining!

Alright I will leave on that note! Thanks for following along blog friends, be back soon!

New Goals for the New Year

The New Year Resolution hype is in full swing right now- the gyms are packed the Whole Thirty Book is flying off the shelf!

This year I wanted to set some goals instead of resolutions. For me, goals are more realistic and attainable. It will also be fun to look back on this post 6 months from now to see where I am at!  So, here it goes:

New Year Celebration with champagne.

*Be More Present. When I’m playing with my kids, that’s where I need to be -not worrying about their next meal, naptime or errand I need to run. And this also means- put down the phone. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience of social media & (my Amazon app of course) BUT there needs to be a time and a place. I’m trying to be more mindful of this and hope that will help.
*Give Myself Time to Blog. I started this blog as a hobby because it’s fun! I enjoy writing and having this outlet. Kind of like my online journal. So I think the little pockets of time I have to put down the phone will also free up my “freetime” to blog!
*Become Pop Pilates Certified & Teach! I’ve loved Pilates for a very long time and have always wanted to more delve into it. The timing just never seemed to exactly work out. I’ve been a fan of the Blogilates youtube videos for years- high energy and challenging! I know this will be a lot of work, especially carving out the time to learn choreography with the two littles but this time, the timing just seems right!
*Spend one night a week where I read. Curling up in my pajamas, a glass of wine and a good book is so relaxing. We love our tv shows but it’s nice to tune everything else out and escape into a good book!
Do you have any New Years Goals or Resolutions you are focusing on this year? Please share in the comments below!
