Happy Blogging Anniversary to me + Fun Giveaways for you :-)

Happy Blogging Anniversary to me + Fun Giveaways for you :-)

Hi guys!

What better way to start off the week than with a celebration!?!  It’s my 3 year blogging anniversary!  Woo hoo!  okay well it was actually more towards the middle of the month but things were busy and technically it’s still March right?  Besides, who’s counting the days at this point.  Three years!  It definitely doesn’t feel like it’s been three years.  You can see I’ve grown just a little as blogger when you look back at some of those first few posts.  Like this one,  or this one…

Even still I know there is always room for improvement and growth.  I mentioned briefly that I had thought about possibly taking a step back and either not blogging anymore at all or blogging less.  However, after hearing from a few of you personally as well as in my reader survey, I’ve decided to continue :-)  I love connecting with so many of you through blogging and enjoy sharing my life with you all.  While it was definitely an adjustment at first I truly believe it’s helped me get through some very difficult times in my life.  When I opened up about my miscarriage it helped immensely to hear others relate.  When I changed my diet to Paleo so many of you shared experiences, recipes, etc. that made the transition even easier.  And the amount of love and support I’ve received from you all during our fertility struggles has been a large part of what keeps me going.

So basically I just want to say,

Moms Night Out at House of Oliver in Roseville

Hi again!

Hope your Friday is off to a great start!  I know I already posted once today but wanted to drop in again to share about our wonderful evening last night while it’s still fresh in my brain.  Otherwise mom brain takes over and I forget a large amount of what I wanted to post about :-)  Mom brain or age… Either one, it happens!

Anyway, a few of my mom friends and I left the kids at home and headed to House of Oliver last night for a little girl time.

Fitness Lately – Lean and Lovely

Fitness Lately – Lean and Lovely

Good morning!

It’s been awhile since I’ve discussed my fitness with you all.  Since I’ve been enjoying my fitness plan lately I figured I’d share a little about what I’ve been doing.

If you’re a new reader or don’t know about my history, you can read a little about it here, here, and here.  Basically I come from a background of cardio, cardio, and more cardio.  This along with restricting calories and yo yo dieting has led to a plethora of health issues.  Mainly with my hormones and fertility.  So finding a way to continue exercise (which I love) while healing my body has been a huge goal for me this past year.

Thoughts Lately…

Hey guys!

It’s Thursday!  Woo hoo!  One day closer to the weekend.  I’ve been enjoying the feedback I’ve been receiving from you all based off my reader survey.  I’ll tally up all the results and do a full post on it soon but in the meantime it sounds like you’d like more personal posts.  Which I love!  So I’ll go ahead and start working on that today by linking up with Amanda from Running with Spoons for her Thursday, Thinking out Loud.  I’ve had a lot on my mind lately so what better way to get personal than to share some of those thoughts with you all :-)

Love Nugget Quotes – Gotta love 3!

Love Nugget Quotes – Gotta love 3!

Oh the life with a three year old.  It’s fun stuff I tell ya!  Actually, I keep saying he’s three, or three and a half but the truth is, he turns four in just a few months!  How is this possible!?!   I haven’t done any planning or thinking about his upcoming birthday I think mainly because I’m not ready for him to turn four.  For some reason, four just sounds so old!  I love three.  He’s still my baby but also so independent and funny!  Three year olds really do say the darndest things!

Case in point, conversations with The Love Nugget :-)

Walking with the dogs to the park out of the blue he says,

Mom, I love you.  I just like saying that.  Because you are my best friend forever.  You, me and dad, we’ll be friends until we’re 103!

Marvelous weekend getaway!

Marvelous weekend getaway!

Okay so I know it must seem like we drink a lot with all my wino posts.  The past few months we’ve just had quite a few wine events and trips that have been so much fun!  However, we don’t drink much during the week if at all so are okay with splurging a bit on the weekends.  Plus until I’m preggers I’m going to enjoy it while I can :-)

It just so happens we got to enjoy another fun wine trip this past weekend in Napa.  So I’m joining Katie and sharing a bit about our marvelous weekend getaway!

Currently in March…

Keep Bugs Away Naturally with

Keep Bugs Away Naturally with

I’ve always joked that I have this naturally sweet blood that mosquitos and other bugs just love.  That’s because I literally get attacked by bugs when I’m outdoors.  Especially this time of year.  When the weather is warming up and there’s standing water which is breeding ground for pesky mosquitos.

Unfortunately my son got my same sweet blood because he typically gets eaten alive as well.  Not only is this a very annoying issue to have because of the actual bites, but it’s frustrating since the only way to keep them at bay is with bug sprays that have dangerous chemicals.  At least before that was an issue, but we’ve recently discovered a new, natural way to keep the bugs off.
