I think that is my favorite meme ever because it summarizes my personality quite well.

Lately, we have been trying to take Penny to do “outdoorsy” things while the weather still permits.

My mom came to visit last weekend so we took her to the park and had a nice walk around the shops in our area.

Hi mom!


We’ve also been out bike riding and to the various splash pads throughout the city.

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what we’ve been up to…







Penny’s new thing lately is that she insists on eating with utensils.  It makes mealtime real messy but it’s also good to know that she’s making progress toward being a real human being with proper manners.


Have you noticed that I haven’t talked about my workouts whatsoever?  That’s because they have been mostly non-existent.  I am really working toward changing that.  I have struggled to get myself out of bed in the morning and going to the gym after work means missing precious time with the little lady noted above.  Next week, I am going to try to start a routine where I do a run/workout DVD (taking a total of 20-30 minutes) Tuesdays and Thursdays after work then go to the regular gym Saturdays and Sundays.  Wish me luck!

I hope you guys have a fab weekend!

Why I don’t do New Year’s resolutions

The last time I did a blog post was approximately 1 year and 3 months ago…WHERE DOES THE TIME GO!?!?

I typically never ever do New Year’s resolutions but this year, i decided to give it a go.  My 2015 resolution was to…wait for it…get back into blogging.  Haha, it only took me 9 out of the 12 months to make it happen!  And that, my friends, is why I never do the New Year’s resolution thing.

So, let’s jump right into it, shall we?

As you can imagine, I have mostly been consumed with raising my 16 month old daughter.  I seriously had no idea how difficult and wonderful it would be to raise a child, what a ride!

These days, she loves her dad, the beach and getting into EVERYTHING!




I have noticed that I am actually the absolute worst about taking pictures.  We took a family vacation to South Carolina for a week and the only picture I took was that terrible one above of her squinting at the beach.  I am really trying to get better about taking pictures because I know that if I don’t, I will regret it later.

I hope every one has an amazing long weekend!
