Friday Favorites

Happy Friday and 4th of July Eve. It has been a great week. Tonight we are going out on a dinner date for my birthday. This weekend we are having a little cookout at home and getting our basement ready to waterproof. Lots of exciting things in the works. 

Time for some Friday Favorites with these lovely ladies: Erika, and Andrea.

~ ONE ~

Brian surprised me for my birthday by inviting my parent, sister, niece, and best friend over for dinner. My mom made me chocolate cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting.

Audrianna just loves Austin so much that she tries to eat him when she kisses him.


I completed Lift 4. It was my goal to get it done before my birthday this past Monday. I finished on Sunday with a double workout.
Yes the scale moved, yes the numbers of my measurements went down. But there’s more that has changed.
I am stronger
I am getting muscle definition
I am gaining confidence
I pushed myself when I didnt want to.
I made a commitment and stuck to it.
I made the time to workout even though it wasnt at 530 am like I wanted.
I lost 3.2 lbs and 1.5 inches in my waist alone.
Losing weight has been harder this time around after baby #3 and exclusively breastfeeding. My journey is so much more than the number on the scale or inches lost.

~ FOUR ~

Ella wrote out her schedule for Thursday. I had joked with her that she had to wake up with the baby at 630 since the day before Ella had slept in until 10 and I wanted to sleep in. She did get up with the baby surprisingly and "slept in" aka laid in bed and listened to them playing and having fun. I love how she goes back and forth between tv, tablet, and playing with the baby. My favorite time was 2:30 become a mermaid. 
Disclaimer No Ella did not spend all day on her tablet or tv.

Audrianna is practicing her cake smashing for her upcoming birthday.
