Today after Savannah went to school I went to Pure Barre Pure Reform Preview class. It was hard but good I look forward to adding it to my weekly routine.

Afterwards I rushed to meet my Bestie for lunch she drove an hour to see me. We had a fabulous lunch at Eureka she treated me to lunch for my Birthday since I won’t get to see her tomorrow on my actual Birthday.

It is always the best when we spend time together I am so lucky to have such a magnificent best friend.

Afterwards I got my bikini and eyebrow waxes. Went home to change out of my workout wear. Then headed to grab a coffee and get my nails done.

Felt great to get a pedicure and manicure. I was also so excited because our son got home from his school trip and I was missing him like crazy.

Later on we went to pick up Savannah she was excited to see us. She had a great day!

I got dinner ready for the kids and then my husband took me out to dinner and a movie . Always a nice evening when spent with my hubby🌻😘

I hope everyone had a great week!

Wednesday morning we all were up early. Unfortunately realized Brandon didn’t get items in car for trip night before like he said and also didn’t get a few chores done.

So not the way to start a morning out. But we took him to school Had him kiss and hug Savannah and I as he was leaving on his science camp trip after mass.

Savannah was sad knowing she wouldn’t see her big brother after school. But I told her it would be a girls night super fun!

My friend messaged us before I dropped kids that she had to reschedule our breakfast. Since I woke up with a sore throat I was tempted to skip my Pure Barre.

But I didn’t I got Savannah dropped off at school without any tears. Went home had some honey for my throat and two warmed up tortillas.

I cleaned dishes and kitchen and headed to Pure Barre. Glad I went it was a great class. Also got to visit with Sheri and Barbara before class.

Sheri sat with us and showed us all her amazing pictures from Ireland & Scotland trip.

Got my coffee after class and took it easy at home couldn’t sleep because one of our neighbors is doing major construction so it’s very loud. Drink fluids and had soup for lunch.

Picked up my Savannah and her request was ice cream so I actually got us Outback Curbside to go she had chicken fingers fries and soda and I had chicken in the Barbie fries and soda we ordered the Chocolate Thunder from down under for dessert. She had the oversized scoop of ice cream whip cream and chocolate sauce and I had the brownie with a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

We watched Savannah’s DisneyJr shows. Gave her a bubble bath let her play with her mermaids in the bath.

Read three books and sang songs it was a fun girls night. I need to order her school pictures in morning.

I’m hoping my throat is better by morning. I’m excited I get my hair done.My Birthday is Saturday we get my husband home tomorrow and Brandon home Saturday. Then we leave early Tuesday morning for our trip to Indiana & Chicago.

I am gonna miss the kids like crazy the original plan for the trip was as a adult trip but I really wish we planned it with our two youngest kids. Brandon has been to Chicago but never to Indiana.

He did that trip with me when he was three going on four so considering he’s turning 12 next month it’s been awhile. Savannah would have really enjoyed it too.

We will enjoy adult time see family and explore the areas. Lots of trips to come I. The future so the kids can look forward to our summer Hawaii trip.

Plan a great spring break trip maybe a Disney Cruise or Beaches vacation trip. Plus my 40th Birthday next Fall we will plan something special.

My family back east would love to see me and meet Jeff and our kids I have family in practically every state and over 30 first cousins. My dad grew up with 11 kids in his family and most of them have had 3 or more children and most of my cousins have had multiple kiddos.

So I’ve has my real estate license 21 years now so it’s about time I get my brokers license. Also now that my husband is licensed it makes since since he has to wait another year to get his brokers license and we already have one real estate office we own in June Lake along with rentals and motel etc.

We will be able to open office here in Desert as well . My parents are now set on retiring and closed there office and are working out of home office until they fully retire my mom has been doing real estate my whole life my dad switched careers and joined her in 1989. They’ve been very successful and have loved their work.

I’ve enjoyed just starting to get back into my writing and I haven’t been at it long at all but will keep at it. I also hope I get my schedule to where u can read a lot too. Not just the precious books I read with my three year old but some great adult reading I so enjoy a good book.

My goal with Brandon this year is to stay back and let him handle school organization, homework and not police his grades when it comes to checking gradelink it will be a couple times a week and I won’t remind him about stuff.

He needs to learn to be organized and set goals good study habits. I won’t contact any teachers if he’s forgotten work turns in late or wants a retest. He will have to take initiative.

With Savannah leaving earlier at drop off. Weaning her out of my bed and start falling asleep in her bed each night. Getting her out of pull ups which is now only at bedtime. Eventually getting rid of her high chair.

Brandon has a full schedule with football practice two hours a day three nights a week and 3-4 hours of practice and games every Saturday. He is very popular so social life and then 7th grade with lots of homework at a private school where he’s learning on a high school level.

My weight has been steady between 134-136 but that’s heavy for me when we got engaged the heaviest I had weighed at my heaviest was 118. Now I don’t expect to get under 120 mainly because I have nearly 46% muscle mass now so it’s not about the number.

I do have some stubborn belly fat to lose and with Pure Barre, Peloton and healthy meals I will get there.

I’m thinking I can get my body fat which is at 28% down to 25% and that should be a nice healthy weight for me between 120-128.

I still have a fit in 42 pass to use. So that will help too. My husband is going to sign up for more swim events so it will be great to watch him train and get ready again he’s at his happiest when he’s swimming and biking everyday.

He’s a great swimmer and was a awesome coach for many years he had his oldest girls swimming at a very young age competitively and he got Brandon swimming great too and Savannah is a little fish or as she likes to say mermaid.

Jeff and I both grew up swimming and he started coaching from a young age.

The English Chanel is one of the Triple crown swims my husband wants to complete. I think it time for him to train hard again and work on completing his goal.

I can’t believe how time flies and the kids grow into adults my oldest nephew turns 25 , then we have 21, 19,17, and my nieces will be 16.

My husbands oldest girls are seriously grown now one married with a baby on the way his other about to get married and another in college. He’s so proud of his girls they are all beautiful intelligent women and being successful as well.

No matter how much time or distance is parents always have such a strong love and bond and we just have to let our children grow up knowing they might stumble but they will get back up again.

I love all the kids so much all my nephews and nieces I’m so proud of them. Love all of our kids as well even though we may not get to see the oldest ones our love in strong and unwavering.

I’m so happy that Brandon abs Savannah are so close their hearts are wide open and vast and they love so freely.

Halloween πŸŽƒ is getting closer and I can’t wait to pick out costumes as a family do a Disney trip go to the pumpkin patch and have a lot of fun fall memories in general.

I hope everyone is having a great week! πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸŒ»πŸ’€

Today we got up and since Savannah was still sleepy she went to drop off Brandon to school in her jammies.

Then I made her some breakfast before getting her dressed for school. I planned to skip Pure Barre because it was picture day at her school.

I hung out with her for playtime with friends and then class time once pictures started the kids were Wild it was like bearding cats.

It was running long I ended up there until almost 10:30 am. She was upset when I left which is frustrating considering my day was getting off to a late start and I skipped my workout.

But she’s three so I just went about my day got my coffee and my gas tank filled up picked up de cleaning.

Baked Banana bread and made a healthy salad for lunch. I made my hair appointment for Brandon an appointment for flu shot.

I had to pick him up a little earlier for that so once I did we headed to Dr. Coits for his flu shot and a record of it for his Voulenteering. Got Savannah’s Physicians report to take to her school.

Went to pot office and came home and checked on the dinner I put on in the crock pot earlier.

I was bummed to see Brandon has two bad grades ugh the stress of parenting.

I went to pick up Savannah she had a great day I’m loving the online status reports we get during the day.

I’m going try to get Savannah to fall asleep in her own bed again she’s spent all summer falling asleep in my bed.

So that’s a habit I need to break. I took a relaxing bath which was much needed.

I didn’t have time to get my nail repaired today so I guess I will wait and just get it fixed when I get nails done before our trip.

Brandon goes away to Science camp tomorrow and I’d like to hear that he enjoyed himself and had a good experience.

He’s missing football practice this week so I hope he’s ok for Saturday’s game especially since it’s on my Birthday.

One of my dear old friends sent me a card and goodies today for my Birthday. Enjoying cuddle time with Savannah watching Disney Junior.

I got my little one tucked into bed and now I’m gonna try to fall asleep I’m exhausted 😴

9-17-18

So today Savannah slept in so after Brandon and I were ready. I got her up and on the potty and then we took Brandon to school.

We headed back home I got her breakfast ready and then for her bag packed for school day. After Breakfast we headed to her school and I stayed hung out with her until around 9:10am.

Got to see kids do morning prayer and songs and in classroom the whole start of morning routine. It was really sweet.

It was nice to see my friend Alena as well and catch up for a little bit.

I headed to Pure Barre for my Pure Empower class. Got to see and catch up with a bunch of the gals I hadn’t seen in a while. Delphine I will get to see again on Sunday at Tara’s for BBQ we’re all neighbors and we take turn hosting each other for dinner gatherings.

Sheri was back from her big Scotland and Ireland vacation and we got to chat but we need a coffee or lunch so we can chat more and I can see her amazing pictures.

So Pure Empower didn’t disappoint. Jenay was teaching today and it was a killer workout. I look forward to her class on Wednesday and Barbara, Jenay and I catching up over coffee afterwards.

So after my class today I headed to Starbucks was just gonna grab my usual and head home. But I was chatting with Mimi about how I need to try to Carduzia I think that’s what it’s called sometime. I had already ordered my usual a Vanilla Bean coconut milk iced latte. I asked if she’d tried the new one. She was like no I haven’t so another employee said they would make us samples.

It was excellent but I will wait until we’re out of the triple digit weather before I order hot drinks.

So anyhow because I said I’d wait and try sample u took a seat to enjoy my coffee. This nice gal complimented me on my shirt we started to chat and we got along great.

She’s new to the area she’s only been out here less than a year she moved from Canada and hasn’t found many young people to hangout with.

Her and her husband own their own business as well. We exchanged numbers always so great meeting nice people. I’m such a people person I seem to make friends wherever I go.

I had to start packing my. So and decide what to keep and what to shed back from my latest Stitch Fix Box. I actually liked it all but the shoes were too big and even though beautiful I don’t like stilletos.

I kept a very cozy sweatshirt felt like silk. Also a great cashmere shirt for both ur coat scott what I spend on All five items but I usually get the budget friendly cheaper the better or )50-100 at highest range they were both $88 each there was a very nice Tory Burch Dress but was nearly $300 and I just didn’t need it. I’m happy with what I kept Happy Early Birthday to me.

I had a nice light lunch and then put outfits together and began packing my suitcase.

It was time to pick up Brandon so I got him from school he had a great day and spent lunch time studying for the math test for tomorrow.

So proud of that choice he made he’s showing lots of maturity. My mom came by I took her with me to pick up Savannah so she could get her fingerprint in system to sign Savannah in and out for the day while she’s watching the kids.

We showed her around and introduced her to sons of the staff.Then we came home and she was able to visit with the kids and I for a little while before she got back to work.

I decided to not do a second Pure Barre class the kids wanted to go swimming which I’m glad we did it was fun and nice and pretty soon when temps get cooler we won’t be able to enjoy the pool.

I had fed Savannah when I started cooking dinner for Brandon and I. I had fried our tortillas made the sauce and chopped up and mixed onions and diced jalapeΓ±os and diced olives. Started putting my cheese enchiladas together and the last but if cheese I noticed was bad so I ended up turning off the oven tossing it all out didn’t want to chance it even though rest of cheese looked ok.

So now I had a sink full of dishes and no dinner for Brandon and I. I told the kids let’s get shower and bath done and us take Us to In N Out since Brandon didn’t have football tonight and dinner was not working out as planned

The kids were excited Savannah knew I’d let her get French fries 🍟 which she loves and I hadn’t been there in a long time so it was a nice treat for us

Once we got done with dinner. Brandon got chores and studying done Savannah and I read a book and watched Disney Jr. I almost forgot this was so precious. On the way to dinner Brandon heard Savannah praying thanking God for us and the food we were about to eat. He loved hearing her sweet prayer.

She loves to pray and she makes me so proud. Tomorrow is her picture day at school. I still have so much to get done and I broke a nail lol so I guess getting that repaired needs to happen as well. I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday ! Goodnight πŸ’€πŸ˜˜

9-16-18

This Sunday was one of those nice days where we didn’t do much but enjoy each other goof off together at home.

We only left to get some Starbucks treats this morning. The rest of the day we played in pool and read books, made pizza πŸ• for lunch. Played blocks and watched “How to Train Your Dragon ” and “Peter Pan”.

I made the kids and I some delicious pasta with sautΓ©ed spinach and garlic and ground beef with some fresh Parmesan cheese. I baked us some chocolate cookies for dessert and to snack on this week.

This week is a busy one we have Savannah’s picture day Brandon needs to get his flu shot.He has football practice and then he goes on his overnight science camp with his school.

My friend is back in town from her trip to Ireland so I look forward catching up with her. I need to get my hair done my waxing done and everything packed for our trip.

My Birthday is on the weekend and we have Dance Class and Football game so working on making a plan so my husband and I get a night out as well as have a family Birthday celebration.

I need to get everything set for dates of Voulenteering for Brandon. I also need to make sure everything is set up for my parents to watch the kids so they know where football practice is and times and dates as well as dance class and his game day and Brandon has a Birthday overnight to go to after football game and their taking the kids out of town to Knott’s Berry Farm so he needs to be there on time.

I need to get my husbands birthday gifts set too before our trip. I am ready to get back at it with my Pure Barre. This week there will be the Pure Reform preview class.

I’ve been working on more scrapbooks and photo albums again so that will be on my to do list this week too.

I’ve planned out my dinner menu for the week and have made hard boiled eggs. Pre- cut Fruits and veggies for easy snacking for me and kids. Made extra pasta to keep in fridge for easy snack and lunch as well.

Still working on finishing up Savannah’s room and been figuring out Brandon’s room once he has a big bed. He’s so much taller than me now they grow up so fast.

Savannah was so cute face timing her Dad tonight lots of kisses and love you said over and over. Watching my husband as a father is so awesome.

It makes me love him even more to see what a phenomenal dad he is he loves all his kids so much. So our itinerary is set and now it’s just the little details.

Our last trip there was in 2014 in October we did Chicago and Wisconsin we got to see my cousin and go to one of my best girlfriends weddings. It rained a lot but we had a great trip.

It’s looking like it will be raining this trip too. So I will be wardrobe prepared. Exploring Indiana and seeing new and old favorites in Chicago.

Will miss my kiddos while we’re on this trip wish we had planned this trip as a trip for the four of us.

We’ve been missing my husband he’s still in June Lake working hard he will be back the day before my Birthday.

I need to deep clean the bathrooms and kitchen before my parents stay over to watch the kids. It’s nice to have them do it here so kids have everything they need and stay in their routine.

I have enjoyed seeing how kids embrace church and love the scripture and the hymns. Savannah’s school prays every morning before school begins.

They go to chapel every Monday and the kids love it. At Brandon’s school they have religion as a subject and they go to mass every Wednesday morning.

My children and I pray each night before bed pray over those we love those who are sick or injured. Anyone that we can see needs a prayer.

I love that my kids are truly their own unique individual. They would never be the sheep that follows or has someone tell them how they think or feel.

They are strong willed and who they are through and through. I love that they know who they are and what they want and who they love at 3 and 11.

They have their own fashion sense, tastes in food, movies, music and although I don’t share in all their favorites I love that they enjoy them and I encourage them to be themselves always.

My son is into cooking and has been cooking on his own for nearly 3 years and is getting quite good. I’m so proud of him. Savannah is quite the little swimmer at 3 years old and loves dance.

We’ve been saying extra prayers for Savannah’s sweet friend Truman he’s battling Cancer. This month is Cancer awareness month and we’re going Gold for Truman.

Life is so precious and sometimes too short. We need to treat everyday as a gift and every moment with those we love as if it was our last. Never good to harbor anger my children know we don’t go to bed angry we resolve it.

We always forgive because to error is human and to forgive is divine as the saying goes. We never lock the door of our hearts it always open for the ones we love after all family is forever and even when loved once pass away we carry them in our hearts just like when someone is gone you may not see them but the love in your heart you will carry always.

I want to make time to visit a dear friend of mine this week that is recouping from a major surgery at home.

I remembered today this wonderful message of when you harbor anger resentment and can’t let go and just live your allowing that situation and that person to have all the power over your emotions your life and if you stop placing blame stop the negativity it’s so freeing.

You see people that no matter what they have in their life they just cannot be happy and positive. That usually stems from being insecure.

Insecurities and fear is usually the reason someone feels the need to control everyone around them and every situation. Those that are secure have a much easier time letting go, forgiving and spreading love and positivity.

I try to be transparent and live by what you see is what you get. I’m flawed and as most everyone a work in progress. I stumble and fall but I always get back up again.

I am very protective over those I love. Really the only thing that really is a pet peeve of mine is not being truthful. You see this a lot unfortunately in many situations.

This is one I tell my kids is never okay. I am happy that family and friends all come to me first when they need someone to listen to help guide them through a situation and to just show them that I care.

I have just started to write again I used to write everyday and I’m getting back to my roots.

My goal list or bucket list is a big one as I have lots of them but at the very top is to get my work published. So now that both children are in school I can start to devote time to work in that again.

My oldest nephew has always had to deal with a lot because his step mom and his Father can’t handle even hearing his moms name. Now what’s crazier is my brother always kept in touch with her but it would be in secret because of how crazy it would make his current wife. My nephew was not treated the same as his brother and sister that didn’t go back and forth.

My brother and sister in law tried to ice my parents out and me just because we still kept a relationship with my nephews mother.

The worst is seeing my brother talking so cruel to my mom bringing her to tears in her office wheee they automatically sent all their title to him even when he treated them like crap. Then another realtor would come in and he’d plant on a smile act Oscar winning fake nice and be on his way. The sad thing is for years my parents let him get away with this bad treatment.

My ex sister in law who I consider to be one of the best people ever always made sure we had access to my nephew and to my other nephew and niece from her second marriage.

I love them all and I thank God every day that I’ve been so blessed to have her and her three amazing kids in my life in Brandon and Savannah’s lives.

It’s easier to just be nice and accepting and loving or at least visual to everyone so kids can enjoy their lives minus the drama.

I know my nephew is not a fan of wanting to get married because of all the toxicity he witnessed. I’m glad he has close relationships to his siblings.

The other truth lesson I’ve taught my son and will teach Savannah when she’s older is the domino effect. That if you think one lie is harmless it gets bigger and bigger until it has a life of its own and some people spend their whole lives with lies upon lies just to keep up the original lie.

That’s why usually when there is a scandal or when the jig is up and the truth is out there people run sometimes figuratively sometimes both people will change location change jobs change everything to give themselves a clean slate.

But what’s sad is you cannot run from yourself so even if you’ve managed to fool everyone you have to look in the mirror everyday and one day if you believe in God you will not be able to hide. I always tell my kids Live and Let God.

Trust in him it’s not our job to see that people are held accountable for what they have done to wrong us. We need to just let go forgive them and trust in God.

I hope everyone had a terrific Sunday I hope your all in good health and have happiness in your life. If your struggling right now just know you will make it through whatever the situation is.

I have always loved the saying whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I am strong and thanks to all the hard times the hurts the scars the heartaches I am the woman I am today I am proud of everything that made me know who I am and trust myself and know that I will always make it through to keep pushing or as Dory says “just keep swimming “.

Goodnight and God Bless

The kids slept in this morning I wish o did but woke up at 7:00am.

My son is so cute he made sunny side up eggs and sausage for him and Savannah I wasn’t that hungry so had cereal.

I got my coffee and got Savannah a brownie since they didn’t have the cake pop she wanted.

We got cooler and fans and towels all set for game. Savannah and I dropped Brandon off for practice came home she and I had lunch then headed jack for the game.

It was a good game and thankfully no injuries for anyone today. Also Brandon not only had me and Savannah cheering him on but my mom cane out for the game and so did my best friend and her kids Blake & Hayley.

Afterwards we took kids to Starbucks then went to my house got I. Swimsuits put out chips and salsa and enjoyed our drinks and snacks by the pool.

Always the best spending time with my best friend and our kids are best friends do it was a fantastic afternoon.

I tried on my stitch fix items that came Friday it’s really the best style picks I just can’t afford to keep everything unfortunately but loved it all and will hopefully keep two items.

Don’t know if it’s my Birthday or just an itch but I want to change my hair want to change my glasses want to mix it up.

Brandon helped me clean up the house tonight after everyone left and we had dinner and got cleaned up for bed Savannah and I read Disney princess stories and watched puppy dog pals before she fell asleep.

I miss my husband a lot I’m hoping in the next few months he will mostly be here and not in June Lake as much. This week has really shown me how many people I am lucky to have and that we can count on.

Also those who we can’t count on or are only around when they need something or get something from you. I am happy with my findings and blessed in life to have such incredible people to love.

My Birthday is next Saturday and am not sure what the plan is for this week and next weekend.

I hope your having a wonderful weekendπŸ˜˜πŸˆπŸΏβ˜•οΈπŸ’€

Today was a nice day 😊 I took my kids to school stayed at Savannah’s school until class started. She did better today since it was our snack day she was line leader and distracted so I was able to leave without tears.

Definitely was a day of back pain and cramps so I skipped my workout had a coffee and did some light cleaning.

I decided to treat myself and watch an early matinee while kids were at school. I saw “A Simple Favor” It was a good movie.

Today definitely made me feel loved by my sister. Nice to know how much she cares.

My son Brandon has been working hard at school and in football but he got an F on his recent math test so unfortunately he’s not able to have a friend spend the night this weekend or have Xbox or phone.

But he has a retake test next week so I’m confident he will turn this around. His second game of the season is tomorrow. I used to take him as a baby and toddler to all his cousins games so it would be nice to see them at his now that he’s doing all his sports.

Savannah is his cheer section along with me and last week we were thrilled to have my best friend and her daughter cheering along side us.

I love that both my kids have such big hearts and love freely and love everyone. I am a inclusive loving person and have and will always teach them to have open loving hearts and not withhold love from anyone just because it’s not what someone’s happy with.

I think everyone should be able to get along especially when children are involved and allow them to give and receive love from all whom love them.

It’s sad how people feel the need to control others emotions and actions. It for one shows a lot of insecurity on their part. It’s also very selfish and cruel to the children the grandparents the uncles aunts cousins etc other parent in some cases for them to be taught hate and to be cold and cast people aside.

It’s certainly not something that God would want or be proud of. I know not everyone believes but to be someone that claims to follow the word of God and then do these things it’s just not right.

Brandon and I enjoyed some time he told me all about his day and what he’s looking forward to. We went to pick up Savannah and we all were hungry and made a big dinner Shrimp and Chicken salad and Mac n cheese.

We even had brownies and ice cream for dessert. Watched “Peter Pan” and now we’ve got to decide a second movie to watch.

We decided on “Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs πŸ¦• πŸ¦–. Looking forward to watching my sons football game tomorrow. Savannah doesn’t have dance class tomorrow so we will all start are day well rested and have a big breakfast.

I’m also looking forward to going to other Pure Barre studios while on our trip. Seeing my cousin will be great last time we went to Chicago was about a month or two before I found out I was pregnant with Savannah. Thankfully I’ve seen Erin since she came out and got to meet Savannah.

I wish we were bringing the kids with us. But we will for sure on our next trip. We’ve been talking about doing a Disney Cruise with our kids and that will be so great !

I still want my children to meet all my family back east so that’s on our list too. Spring Break we will figure out s great family vacation.

I’ve had a bunch of friends take their families to Turks & Caicos so that’s for sure somewhere I’d love to venture with our family.

My son said his top five spots he wants to go is Magic Mountain which is an easy one, Walt Disney World in Florida which would be a first for me too, Italy, France and Brazil.

My top five would be go back to Italy, go to Ireland, go to Bali, go to Australia and Tahiti.

I turn 40 next year so I’d love to plan a big trip as a family or just my husband and I.

Savannah when I ask named off Disney rides and Disney Cruise abc Disney Dance Party and Ocean so she’s easy to please Disney Disney and more Disney.

I have been enjoying my coffee & Mint body scrub its so refreshing and energizing and it leave my skin silky soft.

Savannah has pretty pink mani pedi I painted her nails for her. Brandon has been so good with hydrating and eating lots of hydrating foods lots of protein and taking vitamin each day. He can catch up on sleep this weekend.

Brandon and I have been throwing ideas around for his Birthday trip with friends he did Disneyland last year and the kids have done Get Air and Go carting and Dave & Busters and Knotts Berry Farm. So to do something new would be Magic Mountain or Universal Studios.

I’ve missed my friends that have been on vacation or out recovering from surgery at the barre. I know I won’t be at 250 until I get back from our trip. My last class I was at 239 and I’ve missed like four classes or maybe even five since then. Most likely I won’t be at the barre this weekend and even if I go all week next week that will only put me at 244.

I didn’t make it to price out duvet insert and pillows so I could put Savannah’s princess bedding on for her. Maybe tomorrow evening or Sunday.

I need to order some more essential oils soon running out of my favorites. This movie is such s cute one been forever since we watched it.

Getting bored with my hair makes me want to change up color or cut it for fall I just don’t know what I want to do. I feel so lucky and blessed to be cuddling with my two amazing kids and our precious dog 🐢 Charly watching movies this Friday night.

I’m looking forward to our trip and hope my husband has the best Birthday ever. Our kids are so very lucky to have such an incredible father. He loves all his children so much. His oldest kids are grown now the very oldest married with a little one on the way his second oldest is engaged to be married and his third is in college.

We’re so proud of them 😊 I pray one day we will get to enjoy in all these moments with them. I always say love and let God.

We always keep our hearts open and all lines of communication my husband has been doing his part for nearly a decade.

I still have complete faith that he will be reunited with all three of his lovely daughters. I know our kids would love to have a relationship with all three of their big sisters.

I’d love to as well it would be so great to have nice big family trip and or holiday gatherings.

I know how important it is to have both your parents their to support you through big moments. Graduations , jobs, promotions, engagements, weddings, having babies and every other major life event.

I pray that my parents will live to not only see our kids graduations from High School and college but be at their weddings and meet their babies.

Family is such s special thing and should be cherished. I cherish my family. I still wish my daughter got to meet my Nana but she passed right before She was born.

I pray for all our family everyday and our friends as well. I Pray for Savannah’s sweet friend Truman to get through his battle with Cancer and win.

We pray for all those who need our prayers. We thank God for all our blessings. I’ve taught my kids to pray and to love and to be kind.

sibling love is so precious I’ve watched my son and daughter together and they love each other so truly and deeply. My nephews have all been such sweet big brothers. My oldest nephew has two younger brothers and two younger sisters and he adores them and has been the best big brother ever.

I’ve also seen his brothers be so sweet to their younger sisters and I love it. Hopefully they will all stay bonded and close for all their life.

I am sleepy 😴 hope everyone had a fantastic day and I hope each and everyone of you enjoys your weekend!

9-13-18

Today was a pretty good day😊 I felt rested when I woke up got Brandon off to school.

Then fed Savannah and got her ready for school. Stayed there until classroom time started. Had a great morning with her. But she cried hard when I had to go it broke my heart.

Thankfully another mom that left ten minutes after me texted to let me inquire Savannah was happy again and got over the tears quick.

I was able to still make coffee with my best friend. I cancelled my Pure Barre class so I could spend more time at Savannah’s school with her.

Coffee with Sara was great it’s always nice to catch up with her especially since she lives an hour away now. So we take any time we can to talk catch up and hang out

I signed Savannah up for soccer and Dance for October she should have slot of fun.

I got my house looking sparkly clean and cleaned my sons bedding. I even took a relaxing soak after lunch before picking Brandon up.

I really want to get Savannah her duvet insert and pillows tomorrow or this weekend so I can put her princess bedding on her bed.

Nine days until my 39th Birthday and I am thinking of changing my hair up for fall. So after I picked up Brandon we came home he started homework and chores.

I checked mail and read a book for awhile before it was time to pick Savannah up. She had a great day at school. I let her play awhile and then gave her a snack and an drink while I prepped dinner for oven.

Then we took Brandon to football practice. When we got home I got her a tinker bell movie to watch while I finished making our dinner.

We had dinner and I had time to get dishes done and get her bathed and dressed for bed before we went to pick Brandon up from football practice.

He had a good practice he was in need of a good shower so he did that first then heated up his dinner and studied and did chores.

Savannah and I read books in my bed until she fell asleep. I’m so happy to know I can attempt to fall asleep by ten o’clock tonight woohoo πŸ™Œ hope everyone had a fantastic day! Goodnight 😴

Today my little one was not happy when I had to go even though I stayed quite a bit. She’s a mommy’s girl and loves having me around.

I had to get to Pure Barre for a special 70 minute ABS Intensive class. It was amazing so glad I went and I got to visit with Barbara and Jenay and Drea.

Then I got my morning coffee β˜•οΈ went home started my cleaning. Had some lunch and tried on clothes for our trip to Indiana/ Chicago.

My Birthday is in 10 days and I can’t believe I’m turning 39. It’s a boring birthday unlike next year when I turn the big 40.

I’ve definitely come into a new chapter of this adventure called life. I made some peanut butter chocolate kiss cookies for the kiddos.

I’m debating going more strawberry with my hair again for fall/ winter. Excited to see my cousin Erin soon.

Really want to get Savannah a duvet and pillows so I can make her bed her princess sheets and pillow cases and duvet cover cake in so I am losing my patience but can’t just spend money whenever I want this is the time of year we are tighter with money.

But I know we will finish it up soon and get Brandon a larger bed etc. He has such a full schedule with football and school his social life and Voulenteering.

I have a busy day ahead tomorrow and I can’t stay awake any longer. Goodnight 😴
