Well today took my little one to school and then I had a little breakfast and headed to Pure Barre.

Today turned out to be my πŸ’― class and I was happy Jenay was my instructor glad she was there for this milestone.

It was a great class and afterwards I signed the Barre and took a pic with Jenny and got cute tank and socks .

Then I got my coffee and went home to get stuff done. My little one and I are going to Disneyland tomorrow it’s going to be a lot of fun.

I cooked dinner my parents came over to Josie we took pj pictures by our tree and I ordered our Christmas Cards.

Hopefully I will sleep great tonight so I have lots of energy for tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great day ! πŸ‘πŸŽ„πŸ’―πŸŒ»πŸ

Well had a wonderful weekend but felt horrible stomach pains again last night couldn’t fall asleep until nearly 3am.

Woke up feeling bad today was wasted did not get much of anything done. But I got dishes and laundry on after dinner.

What was great about this weekend was getting our family pictures done. Also taking Savannah to get her picture with Santa πŸŽ… I was thrilled and thankful that our patio lounger is now put together thank you Mike & Katie.

I was supposed to do my 100th class today but I had to cancel since I felt so ache but I will get that done Wednesday. Hoping to get my daughter to Disneyland still.

This week we need to get our sons Christmas gifts and all our family members. I need to get my dog groomed and make my hair appointment too. Maybe I will taking the baking classes on Monday nights in the spring. I enjoyed the cooking classes back in 2012.

My son saw I wasn’t feeling good and did all his laundry such a sweetie I love him. I need to get a lot done tomorrow. Maybe even a facial for me.

I hope everyone had a great day πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ‘πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŒ»

December 08, 2017

Well today was a very nice day I dropped my kids off to school and went to my Pure Empower class it was my 99th class so Monday will be my 100th class.

Then I met my bestie for coffee and we had a great day catching up We’re able to hang out until nearly 2pm had a great lunch and it was a wonderful day.

I put dinner in the crockpot and headed to pick up my son from school and cams home to get some cleaning done before picking up my daughter.

One set of our matching shirts came in and I can’t wait to wear them with her. If my husband is not too tired tonight and Savannah is good I’d like to take her to see Santa and get pictures tonight.

Tomorrow we head out of town for our family Pictures excited to get that done. Glad my hubby will be home soon we miss him.

My daughters scholastic books arrived today so happy to have new books to read with her. This will be. Very busy weekend for us.

Dinner was a hit will definitely make that for my family again in the near future. It was a crock pot recipe for chicken fajitas and it was fantastic and so easy.

Fun night with the kids and hubby tonight just the simple pleasures. I am excited for our family photo session tomorrow. We need to leave by 8:30am so it looks like it will be a Starbucks breakfast kinda day.

Need to get some sleep hope everyone had a great weekπŸπŸŒ»πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸ˜˜

This has been a very busy week. But I’ve enjoyed it I’ve worked out at Pure Barre Monday Tuesday and Wednesday today I had too many errands.

I made two delicious crockpot meals which the kids and I enjoyed and chicken fried rice on Monday night. My weight has been steady at 133 pounds which means I’m getting close to my goal weight.

I got table set with Christmas linens. And our house is looking very festive. Wish the outside lights didn’t make my sons electrical in his room go out haven’t turned them on all week.

Taking him to orthodontist again which means many more taxi service trips for Mom and he’s volunteering tonight so a drop off and pick up for that too.

Received our first Christmas card from my friend Julie which was nice and got to have lunch with my friend Chelsea yesterday. Tomorrow I’m going to meet her and my bestie Sara for coffee then spend some of the day with Sara.

I still need to get our Christmas cards done and sent out. We have family portraits done this Saturday. I still want to get Savannah’s Santa portrait done too.

I got a manicure and pedicure earlier this week pretty red for the holidays. I’ve been getting good sleep every night although I miss my husband a lot.

Brought the book for exchange at my daughters school today. Hoping her scholastic order comes in soon.

I have all her Christmas shopping completed. Some items for my husband ordered. But have nothing for our son yet want to get all that shopping finished by next week.

We still need area rugs badly for our house which is wall to wall tile. Hoping our dining Chandelier arrives soon as well. Our patio lounge is supposed to be put together for us Sunday I am looking forward to that.

I still need to get Savannah’s dollhouse put together. Excited that we now have a bathroom towel shelf tower and that my washer add in door now opens guess it was on child lock.

I will hit my 100 class tomorrow or Monday. Proud of my sons grades and hope he continues to keep up the good work. Bummed that my three step daughters are being cold to their Dad my husband is so good about reaching out and showing love.

I pray everyday that they will open their hearts to him it’s sad to see any parent have to miss time with their kids it’s just not fair that he’s been cut out of so many years of their life. We love them and keep them in our prayers and hearts and only wish the best for them.

I really want to get a treadmill or spin bike this Christmas to workout at home with. Glad my husband Jeff is coming home tomorrow we miss him a lot.

I did manage to get a coffee this morning and my car washed before picking my son up. No just at orthodontist waiting on his appointment to end.

I want and need to get a facial soon my skin is needing it. Bummed found out my cousin and her man and kiddos cannot make it Christmas Day.

Our friend Barb cannot make it our with us Sunday night so we should make other plans for us that night. I need to get our family photo albums done way behind and my daughters first years book I need to add to.

I wish my husband and I could get away just us for a vacation Sandals was one of the best trips we’ve ever had. That would be awesome to do that again.

I like my oil diffuser it’s great think I want to get a few more for house. I want to get more Alexa for the house and sync them up so we can have music and information in all rooms.

Proud of my nephew he’s getting himself on track and working towards getting his own place without roommates. So proud of him love him so much.

Wishing my hair was much longer but it’s starting to grow again. And my daughters hair is getting longer too. I need to get some oils for my diffuser and get underwear.

We’ve been at our new home since July so we’re overdue for having a house warming party as well as sending our family and friends an updated address.

I am going to take my son for lunch before we head back to school. Then I need to get as much done as possible before 2:30pm when I head back to his school to pick him up.

I have definitely started noticing wrinkles for the first time ever mainly my forehead. I still need to get me and my daughter dentist appointments made soon.

I also need to make an appointment with a general practitioner for myself soon. I want to get my house and my life much more organized.

hoping everyone is enjoying their week πŸŽ„πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ»πŸ

It’s the most wonderful time of the year πŸŽ„home

Our weekend was nice cozy nights at home 🏑 lots of baking and Christmas movies. My little one keeps trying to stay up past her bedtime.

I got her down at 8:35 tonight at least and I am exhausted no energy to take a bath just watching a little tv then gonna crash out.

I am looking forward to my Pure Barre this week. This is going to be a busy hectic week and exercise will help me through it.

It’s amazing how this joy filled festive beautiful season with yummy treats to eat and drink brings just as much stress as it does joy. For some people who have lost loved ones it’s a less than joyful time no matter how long it’s been.

I am grateful for my amazing children and husband and all my wonderful family and friends. I love watching my daughter truly enjoy everything now that she is older and I look forward to every moment of memory making.

I am blessed to have my son as my sidekick and helper I may not have all the firsts with him like when he was younger but he’s an amazing brother and son and makes all my holidays and everyday brighter and happier.

I have to get all his Christmas shopping done I do have Savannah all done will save the stocking for Christmas Eve. I need to get the family members gifts as well.

I will enjoy as many festivities as possible this month I will enjoy watching my kids laugh and smile and even make messes.

I miss my husband right now but he’s busy working and won’t be home until Friday. I hope patio lounge chair gets put together.

I hooked up my oil diffuser I need to get some oils for it this week.I want to make sure this is a magical fun week for the kids and I.

Well enjoy the magic this holiday season spread love kindness and joy πŸŽ„πŸ‘πŸŽπŸŒ»πŸ˜˜πŸπŸ˜‡

Hello December

This has been a stressful week been ache most of the week. Today have been very much so and yet been running around not. Minute to rest.

I’ve only been to Pure Barre once this week. I did get our tree decorated still need star put up and outside decor. I got outdoor doormats I am minus inside doormat I also still need twelve new Christmas place mats and napkin rings.

Table cloth as well if we get red mats need new table cloth that’s not red. I need groceries. My son got his report card today and took him to orthodontist have to take him again on Monday.

I need to take my kids to see Santa tonight and I need to finish holiday decor and get all Halloween and Thanksgiving decor put away. I’m so frustrated with the timing of these orthodontist appointments.

My car is now repaired πŸ‘Œ just overloaded with stuff and wishing my pain would subside. Still have all our sons Christmas shopping to do as well as family shopping and they did not have the last item I need for Savannah at target.

Waiting for our pictures to be sent to me from photo shoot Savannah and I did on Veterans Day. I need to set Charlys grooming appointment.

Giving Tuesday

Good Morning, Starting today off I got my daughter and I ready. Did a new hairstyle on her this morning it looked so cute wish I had taken a picture.

Went to her school and her little friends greeted her and it’s so precious her buddy Jacob grabbed her hand when she was sad I was leaving and walked off with her.

I was able to start Giving Tuesday with bringing gifts for three teachers. Got Savannah’s teacher a radio CD player she wanted for the class. Was able to get Ms Norma a magnetic block set for her class and ms Leslie a Trolls Cd for music class.

Now just early for Pure Barre relaxing until class starts. I signed up for two classes hope it doesn’t kill me. I pre bought tickets to take my son to the movies tonight .

My stomach is on the mend but clearly I have digestive issues it’s sad when I went four days with no bowel movements. I have been drinking lots of fluids and will continue

My husband found a great car that I’ve wanted for a long time but doesn’t look like we can get it right now. But at least my current car is going in to get fixed tomorrow.

I’ve been enjoying re watching Big Little Lies. I need to make dental and doctor appointments this week and get my nails done. I have all Savannah’s Christmas shopping done minus one gift.

I need to get all Brandon’s shopping done and I want to get his shadow boxes put up before Jeff goes back to June Lake. I also want to get his basketball hoop up.

His report card comes out this week and a new grade period begins. I am looking forward to getting our tree up this afternoon and all our home decor. We still need some more outside decor.

We need our patio chair and her dollhouse put together really need to find someone to get that done for us. I need to figure out what to get for all our family members for Christmas gifts and figure out whose all coming to our Christmas πŸŽ„.

So happy Savannah and Brandon enjoyed being back at school. I still need to go ick up Dry cleaning drop a few items off as well as get groceries.

We rescheduled our family portraits since I was too sick last Saturday. Hoping we can still do our photo Christmas cards if not o will send out regular cards.

Should be getting pictures of Savannah and I by end of this week. I’m looking forward to getting those. Jeff and I are doing our date night on Thursday this week because he’s heading to June Lake Saturday.

Hoping to get Savannah’s weekly reader shipment this week and rest of gifts I ordered her. Hoping my items from Etsy come in soon too. I should get to see my best friend Thursday which will be great.

Hope everyone had a great day !πŸπŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ™


Started off Thanksgiving with a workout at Pure Barre and then dropped by Starbucks for a coffee both were wall to wall people and the streets were busy too.

Was feeling tired and had. Headache but was so happy to have all the family at our home and be able to feed them well.

Stayed up cleaning went to bed by midnight then was up an hour later sick puking until 7:30 in the morning still headache couldn’t keep any fluids down couldn’t eat anything. Having abdomen pain and horrible bathroom visits I finally decided to go to the ER .

Was there from 1pm to 10pm got a CT scan fluids pain meds anti nausea meds and sent home. Finally got rest last night and this morning. When I went to pick up my prescriptions they didn’t have them ready so I will pick them up tomorrow still have a headache but feel so much better just lacking energy and need to watch what I eat.

Missed our family photo day o am so bummed out. But hopefully can reschedule for next weekend or following one. Love my hubby especially for helping so much with kids while I was sick and at hospital.

Bummed that I’m not on track to be at my 100 classes by Wednesday anymore had to skip today’s class and not in any condition to go tomorrow either πŸ‘Ž happy I have all but two of Savannah’s Christmas presents purchased. We need to get Brandon’s stuff now. Also get his basketball hoop for outside and shadow boxes for his room done this week.

Hoping my car gets fixed this week and that I get 100% better and full of energy again. I am so grateful for my wonderful friends and family. Hope everyone had a Happy and Safe Holiday!πŸπŸ¦ƒπŸ™πŸ‘
