A Little Life Update

I totally skipped out on a Monday post... which felt weird and good at the same time. Life is charging ahead faster than ever, that's the plain and simple truth. Football season always brings about more hours and obligations and unfortunately I already feel myself falling behind on life. So what does that mean? It means my blog posts may get a little less frequent, but don't give up on me or get offended if I take a bit longer to get back to emails and tweets. I'll be here when I can, but my career is just more important right now. I know many of you can relate!
Football Season 2010! Throwback! :)

In the spirit of keeping things simple around here I figured a life update in list(ish) form was easiest and best for us all. Here goes nothing:

- Jared and I had our first ever yardsale over the weekend! We were ridiculously last minute throwing it together but it ended up being a big success. We priced EVERYTHING Thursday evening and got about 4 hours of sleep before we woke up to haul everything outside, put our signs up and get to work. We got rid of a good amount of junk and will be donating the rest this week. Sallie & Perkins were happy to hear about the extra cash we pocketed, too.

- I am obsessed with my niece. Okay, this isn't news... but Skyping with her just gets more and more fun as she gets older! She is starting to recognize us (I think!) and has fun waving to us, playing peekaboo, showing us books and anything else cute you can think of. I love that little girl so much! Being an Aunt is honestly THE coolest thing ever!

- The gym is seriously getting addicting. I have waited for this feeling to hit me for SO long and it finally has. I am loving the regular routine Jared and I have gotten into and the fact that I can tell I'm getting stronger. The feeling of adding weights to a machine and being able to rep it out? I feel like super woman!!!

- One of my cousins just found out she's having twins and I'm entirely too excited for her! TWINS! Can you imagine? I think I would be all about that 2-for-1 deal! ;)

- I have been a cooking machine lately. Between the freezer meals I've stocked us with and trying some new recipes here and there Jared and I have been eating pretty darn well! My goal is going to be to freezer cook once a month to give us those 10-12 meals to have on hand for our busiest nights. It makes life easier and I'm all about easy.

- I haven't gotten my camera out much ately, but I have been working on my Shutterfly photobooks still. I'm slowly organizing my digital photos along the way and it feels nice to be cleaning up my computer while I make something cute, too! I randomly came across these pics Kayla DropBoxed me from their wedding (yes- over a year ago) and I kinda' love them. Even though someone was creeping on Jared and I ;) These are the moments that matter in life!

That's all folks! Hope that was enough of a life update. Thank you all for always reading and commenting 
and supporting :) You're the BEST.

  1. I need to become addicted to the gym! :)

    I am so behind on Shutterfly books (and blogging for that matter). How are you organizing your digital photos? On Shutterfly or Dropbox?

  2. I miss being addicted to the gym. I was really hoping that starting 2 fitness classes would help but I am busy for them this week & they didn't happen last week. Next will be the week! Hopefully ha. Shutterfly is awesome.

  3. I need to make photo books. If I start at the beginning for Ryan, that would involve major scanning!

  4. Good for you on skipping Monday's post! It's good to take a day off sometimes, and we aren't going anywhere! Yard sales take SO much time but counting that cash at the end makes up for it!! I definitely need to do the freezer meals once a month, too! I'm thinking this long weekend will be a good one to spend a few hours in the kitchen prepping!! HAPPY TUESDAY!! :)

  5. I've always told people that I'd be okay with twins, as long as it was boy girl, cause then we'd be done ;)

    Good luck with football season! :)

  13. I used to intern with the University of Miami's athletic department, and girl, football season basically ate my life, lol. So I'm impressed that you manage to blog AT ALL during the season, and as someone else working in the world of sports, I totally feel your pain!

    I'm glad you did well at the Yard Sale!

  16. Yeah the gym addiction isn't a thing that has happened to me yet. Don't know if it ever will....but I'm trying!!

    Those pics are adorable too. Sometimes people stalking get the best pics!

  18. I feel ya on the gym thing. We just joined a new gym and I found some classes that I like and I actually feel guilty not going...even when I was sick all last week, I was trying to convince myself I could go. Even though you had a creeper, super cute photo of you guys!

  19. oh my gosh. i am just getting back into my gym routine and my whole body is so sore. how long did it take you to get into your groove? i know the beginning is always the hardest, so i'm trying to power through, but UGH.

  20. I have got to get my pictures organized somehow and backed up! It is so hard to want to take the time to do that, why is that?!

    Yay for feeling the addiction to the gym. I feel so close to being addicted to my work outs...but I am not 100% there yet.

  21. I wissssssssssh Eric would work out with me! We could have a date night like every night while Mia plays in the gym daycare! I love that you and Jared do it now because you'll be sure to continue after having a baby and it will be so nice to have that time together... while baby is just a few steps away!
    I need to jump on the bandwagon and start doing some freezer meals! Especially so I can find our faves because I want to have a freezer stocked when the time comes for baby #2!

  22. Those last two pictures are just precious. You two are so cute!!! Good job pulling off your yardsale. We have some stuff gathering dust in the basement and need to do the same thing! Looking forward to seeing you soon. I'll email you back soon...this week has been crazy for me, but it seems it's been the same for you!!

  23. Ohhhh your last one reminds me that I MUST catch up on my classroom books asap. I need to add that to my goals for next month.

  24. FaceTime with my niece is so fun! Being an aunt is the best! I need you to come cook for me! Or teach me a thing or two. So proud of you for hitting your stride in the gym! I work out with my cheerleaders now that we're in season and it's been a big help to motivate me. Those are super cute pics of your guys too!

  25. Awwww, twins!! So exciting!

    I can definitely relate to work getting in the way of blogging. The past couple weeks have seriously been the busiest and craziest since I started a year ago. But I still like it, so that's a bonus!
