What we've been up to lately

I have been extremely busy lately but in the best way possible. A few weeks ago I started taking an online class for the local college. It was time for me to start using my brain more and this was a great way to start. Something I realized in the last 10 almost 11 months of being a stay at home mom is, I crave mental challenge. I need to be learning something new constantly in order for me to be satisfied in that area of my life. I started with just one class because I doubted my ability to be able to "keep it all together" without losing my mind. It's going realllllyyy well. I managed to get almost two months ahead and by next week, I plan on finishing up the rest of my assignments (not counting the midterm and final) for the semester. It turns out, all this planning to "keep it all together" worked out in my favor. ;)

But.. at the same time, I have a tendency to go a tad overboard when it comes to school so I'm also learning how to take it down a noch per Phillips orders.

Cruze has been very active. Extremely active. No walking just yet but he's taking some steps without realizing it. He stands up from a sitting position and is ALL over the place. This mama is definitely getting her share of excercise. Oh and he's teething. SIX teeth making their way through at once meaning, less sleep for us, and a very LOUD baby.

Speaking of excercise, I started back up around the same time I started school. It feels great. I'm sore but it's satisfying. Right now I'm just doing pilates (in my own way), a few arm workouts I found on Pinterest and Ab Ripper X (P90X). I'll keep you posted on my progress. And there BETTER be progress ha.

I'm feeling more and more like myself lately. That girl who was always on top of things, always laughing, excited for every day - I feel her coming back and boy oh boy... it's an amazing feeling. I'm thinking nows the time to throw another baby into the mix. I'M TOTALLY KIDDING!

He thinks mommy is pretty hilarious with that last comment ;)

* I'll be adding more pictures to this post later but my camera is in the room with a sleeping baby... and I am NOT about to wake him ;)


  1. Good for you on the online class and getting back to exercising!! That's awesome!

  2. Good on you for the studying! Lol at another baby in the mix :)

  3. Hi I'm Heather! Please email me when you get a chance, I have a question about your blog! LifesABanquet1(at)

  4. I get $20 for a 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So big companies pay millions of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, like me and you, participates in surveys and gives them their opinion.


Thank you for reading my blog! I love love love reading your comments. They really do make my day!
