Bedroom Crush...........

Ya'll I am out of control! No seriously I get on a kick to spruce things up around the house, and I just cant stop. Finally finished up the nook and the living room. Now I am all but foaming at the mouth to change up some things in the master bedroom.

I did give the pillows and duvet a little switch to tie me over for now.

The plan in my head is to get an upholstered headboard, a new rug, and some dresser styling. Until I get my husband on board I will just droll over these beauties.

So tell me, do you do this too? Feel like you almost have your home just like you want it....then bam you found something else to change?

Hey It's National Margarita Day!! I started early and had mine last night. But you all defiantly should have one today!

Supper Club was a blast, as I had no doubt it would be. These girls they are my besties and make life so fun!
After everyone had left and the house was quite I went to Carsons room. I just stared at my baby sleeping. It hit me like a ton of bricks,  he's not a baby anymore. Then I may have cried a tear or two. Why do they have to grow so fast?

Todd and I are going on a date tonight. To the movies, my favorite!! We are seeing Safe Haven. Anyone seen it? Is it good? How bad can it be with Josh Duhamel really?

I leave you with these true words.

Thoughts on Thursday............

Our breakfast nook is complete!!!!!
(I wish I was good with the camera, but darn it I am not)
So these pictures will have to suffice.

I am hosting our monthly girls supper club tonight! It will be me and 7 or maybe 8 of my favorite lady friends. I will be making Mexican from scratch! My table is already set. Yes I am crazy like that.

Keeping it in the talk of house stuff. This rug is going to be mine on Monday. I purchased the small one like real small 2x3, so it's going at the front door. I had to have that pop of pink.

In a perfect world.........

Well my friends in a perfect world my kids playroom would look like this.....

But in reality it mostly looks like this.

My kids would always be dressed like little fashion models.

But most day he chooses pjs over any handsome shirt. (yes that's a tattoo)

I would always look like I stepped out of a movie. (or maybe just showered).

But this is usually how I roll.

 A full course dinner would always be served.

But sometimes we just have goldfish.(no that is not a joke).

Yes in a perfect world wouldn't our lives all be glitter and gold. Just like pinterest ha! Not that I don't like all the happy glitter, it's one of my favorite past times. But I just thought with all the "perfect" all the time y'all might like a little "real". 

Disclamer * Don't worry i gave him some yogurt and apples with those goldfish. I am on my way to pick up all that junk in his playroom, and tomorrow I plan to shower and post really pretty pictures of it on instagram ;)

Happy Love day!!!!

I know  a lot of you don't "love" valentines Day... But I do! Why not? It's a holiday to celebrate the ones we love, plus it makes just a normal day a more special day! 

You know good ol' Todd never disappoints.
He came home with a sweet card, a day at the mom spa, and a homemade cd. He looked at me and said, "I hope you don't think it's too mushy I made you a cd it's just hard for me to tell you how I feel sometimes, and these songs do that". Sweet boy. Love him.

Me and my other Valentine finished up his treats for his class party today. I think he has a crush at school, he wanted to give Miss Macey two Valentines ;) Lord help me when the real crushes start!

Got any big plans tonight? We are headed with some friends to see Rascal Flatts and have some Mexican and tequila beforehand. I am super pumped, I love a good concert with my man and friends!

How I train.......

 I keep getting the emails and comments asking exactly what I do at the gym? Hmmmm...... want to see? I've never been too good at really explaining it, so I had Zach (my trainer) shoot a short Vine video.
(nothing in your face like watching yourself on video, mercy I am glad it's only 6 seconds)

Note: these are just some of the things we do. It's always different and the man always keeps me moving. Speaking of moving Zach is about to open his own gym!!! (more to come on that later). Now I only have 30 minutes with him a few times a week, so the rest is in my hands. I try to fit in 5 days of cardio and keep a pretty clean diet. Don't fool yourselves I cheat! You know I love me some chocolate! 

I can not express to you guys  ladies how much better I feel physically and mentally when I get my butt in the gym! Girls bikini season is not too far away......Lets do this shit!

For those of you who asked my shoes are these. Not going to lie bought them because they were cute, but turns out I really love them.

I don't know why but I am struggling to write these days. I love it, I love y'all  I love the feedback, the relationships. What gives? I am going to chalk it up to my all or nothing personality. Seriously  I may be the most stubborn person in the world, but when I make up my mind to do something I do it. And not half ass. So right now in this moment my mind is focused on fitness and loosing weight. I feel as though my all or nothing can sometimes be a bad thing. I tend to let things consume me and my thoughts. (if only you could be in this little head of mind).

Okay enough crazy talk for one day. 

How cute are these two? It's very rare for Carson to let Taylor ride in his car. He likes to go fast, and that freaks me out with our little bean in tow. 

Check out the views from the Oyster Roast we attended last Saturday. Todd has not stopped yapping about it since we left. There goes my dream of a beach house, boy wants a country house!

last random thought of the day......

I am ordering this today! Hey it's 29.95, 25% off that, and it has a built in bra!

Nope I got one more.

Victoria Secret does it again.....

Is is just me or has Victoria secret really stepped up their game? I have ordered from them quite a few times over this past year and have been nothing but 100% satisfied! 

Todd asked me the other day what I wanted for Valentines and I told him I didn't know yet?
Well honey here's yours list :) And in honor of V-day I am making it all pink. (plus it's my favorite color anyway).

So what's your honey getting you this year?

Our breakfast nook.......

Okay ladies I am here to ask for your advice once again!

There is really nothing "wrong" with our current table and chairs, but I just don't "love" them. They were my parents and they were free so I've made them work. But I really love the way a round table looks in this area thinking maybe a lower one? Or should I just scratch an entire new set and give my cushions a makeover with a fun new fabric?

Current State:

And here are some inspirations that I am digging.

Thoughts or suggestions, cause I am listening!

Want to know who inspired me to get my butt moving on this project? My stylish friend Chassity with her fabulous new nook! (I know amazing right)?

Our Weekend...........

Nothing too exciting around here happened, and I am okay with that. 

Saturday we did head to our "new park" with some neighbors. We all meet around 5, and by 8 we had a bonfire, music, and 5 more bottles of wine!  I will have to take a picture of it, cause it's really pretty awesome, and so are the neighbors ;)

So I put this up on instagram and it made me really anxious. But you know what? I like it when people put it all on the table. So here's a little progress shot for all my "people" interested in my "get my ass in shape" journey. I still have a ways to go with 12 more lbs to loose, but I will have to say the 1st shot looks better than the second.
 My body may net be perfect, but it's carried me through so much that I am thankful for it. -Jenny Garth

In other news this little bean has decided that she no longer needs naps! Not going to happen sista, mama aint afraid to let you cry!

Happy Monday!!
