As of late....

This month has been insanely busy....I was no joke gone for 3 weekends in a row. It was NUTS!! I must say I am glad to have a pretty clear schedule most of the summer as far as traveling goes. 

We had our 10 year reunion this month....its still insane that I have been out of highschool for 10 years. 
 I must say, I don't miss it one bit. I was so immature. If I could go back I would have never dated any of the boys and I would have just hung out with my friends and family and doing cheerleading. 
But life is all about learning and so cheers to 10 years!

The boys also closed the chapter to their first year of preschool. They each had a fun filled last day of school full of outdoor fun, juice boxes and tattoos (in the middle of the forehead is coolest)
 The boys learned so much this year and I LOVE their teachers! Luke will get Vincents teacher next year and then Jude will follow suit the following year! I love that these teachers will be all 4 boys teachers! 
 I honestly cannot say enough about Luke's teacher. She cried saying bye to Luke. I almost died. She is hands down the sweetest most inspiring person I have met at our school. She is mother to 6 children, 4 boys followed by 2 girls. She is so amazing with the kids and you can feel the love pour from her. I was a tad nervous about Luke going to school, he was a tad rough around the edges, a bruiser if you will so I was on edge sending him and he did perfect. She said he was so sweet the entire year. He is in love with his teacher also, I asked him who he wants to come to his birthday party this summer and she was the FIRST and ONLY person he named!! This year let me know that I made the right decision sending the boys to preschool. Next year Vincent is going to Kindergarten and that will be the true test for our family. But all was rainbows and butterflies in preschool!!! What a great year! 
Sammer Jammer is growing like a monster. He has become such a great addition to our family. When Jude drives me up a wall and I want to scream I just cuddle this sweet little guy up to me and all is well!:) 
We have some more home projects going on....never a dull moment in this ole house.
The kitchen cabinets were driving me up a wall. We painted them white when we moved in and it backfired. Nutella handprints and messy boys caused them to be a never ending cleaning mess. We just painted them yesterday a dark gray on the bottoms. I am hoping this calms my nerves. 
Jordan and his grandpa are also building a stone patio!! I am so excited. Our backyard is huge but we had no designated eating/lounging area yet. We have a lot of work to do back there but we are looking forward to being able to enjoy the patio this year and eat outside a lot and read books and cuddle by the fire! 
Memorial Day weekend was fun!! We hit up the Walleye festival (adults only) haha to get our fried food annual binge on. We included some plastic cup to go wine for our walk down to the festival. FUN TIMES!! Family bonding at it's finest! We had a great time!

I am going to be writing a post on marriage here soon and will be opening up the floor for any questions for Jordan and I as we are about to celebrate 5 years of wedded bliss. We honestly have a pretty damn good marriage. We rarely fight because I dont hold grudges and if we get into any tiff I just move on, Jordan claims that is one of my best traits! It works out well for us. He on the other hand is a dweller and let's things build up. I know we all have issues in our marriages so I can't wait to talk about our ups and downs. Thankfully we have a lot more UPs than downs but it all has to do with trying and then trying some more and ALWAYS always ALWAYS respecting each other and your relationship! 
This is a great song by Sanctus Real which is so great for marriage. It really hits home and is a great reminder to all married couples....we need to lead eachother and help always. 

Last but not least, as you can see by memorial day pics I have falled off my healthy eating bandwagon a tad. No biggie because I have the tools to get right back on but I would love for you guys to follow my fitness page on facebook!! As you know I am an open book when it comes to everything. Being healthy is a lifestyle change. I make bad choices sometimes. Okay maybe more than just sometimes. But I still make smart decisions. I still make PROGRESS. I don't give up. I keep on going. Every single day. This is a journey. This is an adventure. This is a LIFESTYLE. I am here to help you see SUCCESS without giving up your non negotiables! It has to work for you forever...not for a week, or just a month! Join me over there! 
Also I am opening up 2 intern spots for my fitness team for June!! If you would be interested let me know. If you are on the fence we are opening a FREE 5 day coaching group to give all the inside info to coaching! I am honestly so glad I started coaching. I have been 10 times more confident in myself!! I also LOVE helping people, hearing how they have changed not only their bodies but their outlook on life. It's amazing. Leave your email or message me if this sounds like you!! 
Happy ALMOST June friends!!! xoxoxo


  1. Wow, you're having a busy summer already!!! My mom has been a preschool teacher for 20 years at our church and seeing your pictures made me think of her and her classes. She cries every year on the last day of school and still has students who come visit her all the time, some of which are in COLLEGE!

    Your fried food pics made me drool all over the keyboard, its back to good eating for me and working out again! Power90 here I come!!! If I had more time, I would think about doing coaching, but I don't think I can add another thing to my plate right now. Maybe once the little one is a year old :)

  2. Out of all the interesting things here on this post - I feel most compelled to comment on mister SAMMER! :) He is so precious... I look at those pictures of him rolling around on the ground and I want to scoop him up!!!! Cutie cutie!

  3. I am so glad I found your blog. I love your honesty. I cannot wait to see your marriage post. We just had our first baby this year so I look forward to seeing how children has changed your marriage!

  4. Sounds like you all have had some wonderful events lately!

  5. Girl, you sound just like me! I'm attending my 10 year reunion this summer and I feel the same way about high school. I would do so many things different but it is what it is and I can't change that.
    And Sam, his looks are different than the other boys. He's got more features like your husband.
