one. 60 days until christmas
i know some of you may hate me for pointing this out to you, but today marks 60 days until the day when santa claus comes to visit…december 25th will creep up on us before we know it, which means i need to make lists for all my favorite people! cannot wait for my the holiday season and all the joy that encompasses the next few months…food, festive music, family, and fun!
two. bye bye baby weight
so, it’s been awhile since i have shed any light on the baby weight loss…as of today, we still have 5 pounds to go. since i’m not nursing as much as i was, my caloric intake has decreased as well, so that is helping, along with weight training, classes at the gym, and loads of cardio. toning has been a bit trickier this time, but i’ve got my goals in order and i will be hitting that number soon, I PROMISE. although it might be a bit longer than i talked about originally given the fact i just talked about the holidays and you all know my love of sweets and treats. bring on the sweaters and leggings!!
three. cute cooler
is this not the cutest way to display adult beverages at a kiddie party? this is totally random, and yes more geared towards summer, but i pinned this the other day because i thought it was GENIUS!
four. birthday celebrations
yesterday, caroline and i spent the day with my grandparents, aunt winnie, and mimi celebrating my gran’s birthday…sometimes, you need to put life on hold to spend time with those you love the most and this was one of those days. we baked a cake, hand delivered her cards, and took a few hours to savor with the woman who has made our family what we are today. she is a woman of grace, strength, and both caroline and i are lucky i am lucky to be named after her. birthdays are the best and i hope her wishes for this next year come true!!
five. fun weekend ahead
it’s here, it’s here, the weekend is here. it’s the last one in october and i am sad to see this month coming to an end. we are taking it easy tonight, then venturing off to the zoo tomorrow with jeff’s family for the ghouls at the zoo event, and then headed to aunt winnie’s for fall fest!! and no, it doesn’t stop there… sunday morning is miss carson’s baptism and brunch and we are happy that our family and friends will be there to celebrate our sweet baby’s big day. cheers to a blessed weekend lovelies.
