FIVE on Friday


I am so glad it's finally Friday. This week has seemed to drag on. This weekend is going to be a busy one so I'm sure it will go by far to quickly. 
Today I am linking up with the girls  for Five on Friday

ONE: The boys and I made Valentines cookies to send to their cousins for Valentines. They may not have been the prettiest cookies, but they were yummy! I think I'm starting to get the hang of decorating with royal icing. 
TWO: My husband and I are finally going to see American Sniper this weekend. I'm pretty sure we are the last to see it!! 
THREE: I am running my second 5K for the year (1 per month is the plan) tomorrow. I will be running the Spartan 5K at Athens Academy. I'm a little nervous about this one because I am not a fan of cold weather and it's supposed to be around 25 degrees in the morning!! 
FOUR:Kerry and I are going to a new restaurant for a Valentines date on Saturday. We originally planned to stay in and not fight the crowds, but the boys will be with their grandparents this weekend so we thought we may as well enjoy an unusual night out. 

FIVE: I discovered tthis recipe and I love it so much!! I'm a huge fan of guacamole and feta so putting it together was pretty amazing!! 

I hope you all have a great weekend and a very Happy Valentines Day!!

February Goals

It's already 6 days into February and I'm finally blogging about my goals for the month. I feel like when I put something down in writing I am much more likely to stick with it.

February Goals

1. Run a 5K ...I am registered to run my 2nd 5K of the year, I will be running the Spartan 5K on February 14th. 
2. Plan a Valentines date night with my husband. 
3. Have friends over for dinner. I love to be a hostess. And having friends over for dinner doesn't happen nearly as much as I would like. 
4. Start Jamie Easons 12 week fitness plan


It has been awhile since I have linked up for a 5 on Friday and today I actually had the time to blog so I thought why not. I haven't had the time to blog at all so my Five on Friday are pretty random.

 Walker and I set a goal to run a 5k every month in 2015! We ran our first 5k together last weekend and we had so much fun. I love that it's something that we can do together that is active, but also have  quality one on one time. We hadn't trained much at all so we definitely didn't run a fast 5k, but Walker finished 4th in his age group and he was pretty excited about that.

I just finished my 2nd round of Whole30! It was so much easier this time around. I have discovered so many recipes and learned so much about food and nutrition throughout the last 30 days! 

 Since turning 30 my body is definitely taking on changes that I didn't expect! I have always heard people say that as you get older its harder to stay fit and I have seen that first hand! I feel like I have to set goals for myself and really push myself to see results now. I think before the past year it came easy to me and I really took it for granted!

 Speaking of setting goals....I plan to start Jamie Eason's Live Fit 12 week workout plan next week. I hope that I will be able to blog about my progress during the next 12 weeks. 

 I have to confess that I am very excited about seeing Fifty Shades of Grey!!! I am planning to go next weekend with some friends. I read through all the books in a matter of days and am so curious how they are going to make a movie thats even remotely close to the books!!

Merry Christmas 2014

I have been a little behind on blogging, lately. December was an extremely busy month for us and it's hard to believe that it has come and gone. Between traveling, weddings, and all the fun that comes along with Christmas it all seems like a blur looking back. We had a great Christmas spending time with our families and celebrating the birth of Jesus. Here is a look back at Christmas 2014 in pictures.

Happy 7th Birthday, Carson

December 30th we celebrated Carson's 7th birthday. It is hard for me to believe that my "baby" is already 7 (I guess I can't really call him a baby anymore).

When you woke up this morning you came downstairs to 7 balloons for 7 years and breakfast of your favorite donuts. You were so excited to finally be 7!!

I absolutely love getting to be your Mama. You are the sweetest and most loving little boy. You are a ball of energy and always keep us laughing. You hardly ever want to sit still and I'm sure that causes problems at school, but it's no different at home. You still don't sit through dinner without getting up at least once. Every night you ask to be carried upstairs for bed and every morning you want to to be carried back down. Even though, you are getting bigger I don't mind carrying you because I know these days will be gone far too soon. 

You LOVE sports of any kind, but especially football!! You love to watch football, play football with friends and even play football on the Xbox with your daddy! On the night of your birthday you chose where to eat dinner based on a place that had a T.V., so that you would't miss out of the UGA bowl game. 
Birthday lunch at LaParilla

There aren't enough words for to express just how much your Daddy and I love you! I will continue to love you for as long as I live, and in my eyes you will always be my baby!! Happy Happy Birthday my sweet blonde haired, blue eyed baby!!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Last week we had the opportunity to go to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a few days. Kerry received the trip through work and it was most likely the best vacation we have ever been on. The trip was an all-inclusive and we didn't have to spend a dime on anything if we didn't want to!

Everyone was so nice friendly every where we went! As soon as we arrived in Puerto Vallarta we were greeted at the airport with drinks and a chartered bus ready to take us to the resort. We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel and it was so nice. As soon as we walked in there were people greeting us with food and cocktails. The entire trip felt like a non-stop party, but so much fun. There were activities every night that you could do or you had the choice to go and do things on your on if you wanted. Even though this trip was technically for work it was meant to be enjoyed and there were no events that you were required to go to. Here are a few pictures from our trip...and the pictures don't begin to describe how nice it was and how much fun we had.

Greeted with food and drinks 

Unlimited Margaritas (my favorite) 

Welome Party by the pool 


Room with a jacuzzi 
Bingo by the pool
