packin' up

We have been busy packing up our place and getting ready to move!
We've been renting since we moved to Texas a year ago and our lease is up at the end of the month.
We are so excited to be closing on our new home next weekend!
It's been a crazy last couple of months trying to find a place and get everything timed out right.. but I'm hoping everything from now until next weekend will go smoothly!
Our house is in shambles.. half boxed up and half a mess.. but we are making progress and hoping to have everything completely boxed up by next Thursday! wish me luck!

she won't take a paci but she sure likes her fingers, pjs, and blankets!

Zoey's Blessing Day 1/11/15

January 11th, 2015
We had Zoey's blessing day at our church this past Sunday,
We were lucky enough to have my parents drive over for the weekend from Tennessee
and Tyson's grandparents flew in from Idaho to be apart of this special day!

Special Sentiments:
Dress: Monsoon Shoes: Carters
Bracelet: Deseret Book Store
Flower Crown: ElleBowtique

(blurry pic sorry)
and sometimes it's just kinda impossible to get a good pic,
or a hungry baby that wants to be fed but a momma who wants pics
before everyone changes out of church clothes :)
I guess ya get what ya get! ha

Zoey's 2 Month recap

Onesie: @ittybittyhip  Headbands: ElleBowtique

(recap from Instagram) -- but with a little more info
This little lady turned two months last Monday (January 5th)!
She just had her 2 month appointment and she is 10.7 lbs and 22" looking as healthy as can be!
Fun Fact:Lexi at her 2 month apt. was 10lbs exact and 22"
- pretty dang close to being a replica of Lex!
I feel like this last pregnancy I experienced every kind of emotion along the way.. it took a little over a year of trying to get this one after our miscarriage and then when I found out me and ty were both cystic fibrosis carriers.. my mind of course went into extra worry mode for this babe. To say I prayed for this little girl is an understatement which is why I love this saying so much!! It's also the phrase I used on Lexi's shirt when we told Tyson we were finally pregnant so it was only fitting that she needed a customized shirt for herself!

5 Tips for feeling your best in the New Year

  1. Have easy/healthy go-to quick meals like Progresso™ Light that you can take advantage of on busy or lazy days! I have a bad habit of snacking on Oreos or other not-so-good for you snacks when I don't have a lot of time to cook or just simply no energy in making me a real meal! Canned Soups don't take long at all and it will give you a good source of fulfillment! Have a Calender/Organizer/Planner -- what ever you want to use.
  2. Have a little structure in your life by writing things down. Goals, Appointments, etc.. By having a written down list of things you want to accomplish, you are more likely to accomplish them! It's easier to check off something on paper and feel accomplished than if you were to do it mentally in your head!  It's always rewarding to actually see something on paper of all that you managed to do! 

  3. Kick soda and drink more water! Try your best to eliminate your intake of sodas! If you are used to drinking a couple a day.. try switching to only having one every other day! Make it a realistic goal or otherwise you are more than likely going to slip up more times than you wish!
  4. Get a Pedometer! I never have been much for working out.. and to try and commit myself to some outrageous goal of starting now, might be a little unrealistic! A pedometer is a good way to track how much you walk each day. Not to mention walking is free and you can do it anywhere!! Set a goal to walk 10,000 steps a day and you can even make a competition out of it with another friend or family member by sending  a little nightly message to boast about how many steps you had that day!
  5. Get new Make up! Go into Ulta or Walgreens, wherever you shop for make up and splurge on some new makeup! I swear it always feels refreshing to get new make up! Eye shadows, lip stick, lip gloss, blush, primer, etc.. I promise wearing good makeup helps you feel your best! 2 of my favorite items to get you started: Benefit Mascara, Loreal True Match LUMI foundation (I love that kind just as much as my more expensive version -Urban Decay Naked foundation)
