What are you reminiscing about?
It was a year ago this week that my car was stolen out of our driveway and they got access to our house (but thankfully didn't take anything or enter) I look back and have learned to not leave spare keys in the car, don't leave the garage door open in the car, don't leave stroller or valuables in vehicle (wasn't replaced by insurance), always lock car and house. No matter where you live it can happen anywhere. My car ended up being out, totaled with a twist frame. 

What I am loving?
I am loving being home with my kids everyday. I can't say it enough. I have been blessed with the amazing opportunity to be home with them. Time to start doing more with them and enjoying summer.
I am also loving the gorgeous summer.

What we have been up to?
lots of family walks, mini golfing twice, a trip to Cedar Point, birthday parties, so much fun outdoor stuff, trips to the library

What am I dreading? 
Getting older. My birthday is tomorrow. Since I turned 25 (that was a few years ago) I don't look forward to my birthday anymore. 

What am I working on?

Brian and I are hosting an online health and fitness accountability group together next month with a new workout program called Shift Shop. We are going to helping, supporting and encouraging men and women on their health and fitness journey, while we do the same thing. Want more info. Check this out

What am I excited about? 
I am excited for our family vacation next month. We are going to Michigan to see family, Mackinaw Island, water parks, zoos, something different planned everyday. I did this trip a lot when I was growing up. I can't wait to include my own little family in the tradition.

What am I watching/reading?
I don't watch much tv. Rachael Ray is normally my extent and I watch her on the dvr. However my newest tv show I have been watching I found out about on Instagram. I use to love 7th Heaven and heard Barry Watson was in a new series and just had to check it out. I am hooked plus Ella likes to watch it with me. ( is kid safe) 

What am I listening to?
I listen to podcasts and not much on the radio. (I feel like an old lady saying I only listen to talk radio and I hate normal talk radio) I will put on Pandora and rock out to Britney Spears, Mandy Moore, Linkin Park, Eminem, and Disney radio though. My favorite podcasts right now are:
The Mom Hour with Meagan Francis and Sarah Powers
The Fulfilled and Fit Podcast
Coffee + Crumbs
The Marvelous Moms Club

What am I wearing? 
I have turned into stay at home mom attire. I get dressed in the morning put on a sports bra, yoga pants or shorts, and a tank top or workout tank. If I am going somewhere like shopping I will put on jean shorts. 

What am I doing this weekend?
Celebrating my birthday
Watching Fireworks

What am I looking forward to next month?
July 4th
Austin's Birthday
Family Vacation

Question of the month is:
What is your favorite 4th of July Tradition?
I love fireworks at a distance, or that I can see them actual being set off. I hate being scared by the noise. It makes me jump and jars my back in a weird way. We always see them at least once for the 4th of July holiday, sometimes more. 
We normally have the tradition of going to my In-Laws for a cookout. This year it is not happening with the 4th being on a Tuesday. Brian always has to work on the 4th so she tries to do it a different day so he can partake in the fun.
This year we have a surprise for the kids. We are going to ride in a Police Car in the parade in the city Brian works for. I can't wait to see the excitement in their faces.
