I just want to say...

Thank you!!! To all those that have played any type of role in either my life or the boys! We are beyond grateful and appreciate it all! It truly takes a village to raise children and I'm blessed to have had that support not only with Aaron growing up but also Andrew.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! I plan to take lots of pictures Christmas morning but I can't promise they will be uploaded that very day. As exciting and joyful Christmas is it can also be exhausting especially when you wake up at the crack of dawn (5:00 am) to see what Santa put under the tree! :-)

I'm really looking forward to 2015! It's always exciting to see what the New Year brings and what goals are set to be accomplished. My goal for this little blog next year is to continue posting and try to get a set # per month. I think its doable! Happy New Year! Hope you all continue to follow along!


Keep calm and stay cozy

Baby it's cold outside!!! I'm not a huge fan of the cold weather, I don't know how anyone can be! With the cooler months approaching you can find me trying to keep warm and cozy inside the house. Below are my holiday winter favorites...hint the repeated red color!

As mentioned before, I love scarfs! They are easily my go to accessory since I tend to be very minimal. I wear them non stop during the colder months even inside the house...oops!

I love lighting candles it really sets a relaxing atmosphere plus it doesn't hurt that they smell amazing. During the week it's not unusual to see me in my pjs or lounge wear snuggled up on the couch with a cup of tea. It's the perfect way to unwind after a long day.

Life lately

Sorry I have been MIA lately! So much has been going on with the holidays approaching! Take a peak at what's been going on the past few weeks! Hope to be back to a normal routine soon! Hope you get a chance to try out the treadmill workout this week!

Workout Wednesday

Finally, I have a workout for you. I know it's been a while. Now that the weather is colder most people have moved their workouts from outdoors to indoors. I don't blame them, it is way too cold to try and walk/jog/run outside. Here is a treadmill workout to get you up and moving again. The treadmill is a great way to help build stamina and increase your speed.

I know the treadmill can be somewhat boring so make sure you load up your MP3 player/Iphone/Andriod or whatever device you use with some good music! The better the music the better I perform...typically! :-)
