{ MINT }

A pop of color. 
 I am SWOON over the color MINT this season.  
The pictures I take,
 The clothes I wear,
 The color I paint my toes, 
The accessories I wear, 
The bike I ride. 
It is everywhere!

What's your favorite color this season?

“Motivation is what gets you started. habit is what keeps you going.” — jim ryun

Skinny girl syndrome, yes I have it.  It's not fun and I do have to work to put on weight.  Instead of being self conscious about it or having one more person tell me I am too skinny (which is really annoying by the way, like I don't know this) I am doing everything in my power to add some muscle and weight. Plus I want to be healthy and around for a really long time.  I want to grow old with my husband and watch my kids have children of their own and so on.  So here's is what I have been adding to my daily routine since being back in this Spring Colorado weather;)

I have been trying to get my heart rate up by either running at a near by track or taking walks with my kiddos.

Morning workout routine.
I recently started my own work out routine with weights, push ups, sit ups, squats , ect.
There are lots of great workout routines on pinterest.

Nothing like the feeling of being sore.
Isn't weird how there is this odd pleasure in being sore the next day.

Adding a healthy smoothie in the middle of my day.
This week I have been able to soak up some Vitamin D outside while the kids play. During this soaking session I sip a "pick me up" out of my Poppy and Pearl Co. tumbler.  This smoothie has some hidden ingredients that I cant even taste such as: ALL ONE (a daily vitamin powder), spinach, and a raw egg.  The yogurt and berries disguise the not so tasty but healthy parts.

{ A Mint Cruiser }
  Yes we all recently acquired bikes in our family.  This is such a fun exercise and good way to hangout together. 
Isn't my bike just perfect?  Now to find a perfect basket to add to it's cuteness.

So I encourage you friends, what ever your reasoning may be: too skinny, a bit over weight, a health issue, or just the desire to be healthy and live a long happy life.  Go do it!
You won't regret it, I promise.

Spring time.

Who likes Spring time?  This girl.  Well I love every season but since we are approaching Spring lets give praise to all the wonderful things that come with it.
This particular day the highlights to this spring afternoon had to be my family, the sunshine, and all of the flowers.

April showers bring May flowers.  Wait a second, its only March.  Yeaaaaa that means lots more of Spring to enjoy.

Introducing little man to snowboarding

Just a week shy of Ryden turning 4 and a fresh 17 inches of snow we decided to take little man up to the snow.  I know part of my husband was a little nervous because he was not sure exactly how his son would take to his #1 favorite sport, snowboarding.  Well like the sayn' goes "like father like son," Ryden absolutely loved it.  Jason had a happy heart and a smile from ear to ear as his son oh so quickly caught on and did not want to stop for lunch.  I think the best part of the day for my husband was when Ryden looked up at him at the end of the day and said "Daddy I love you."  Talk about making a grown man cry.

The beginning of Forever.

I am currently back in California for a whole month, YIPEE.  My time here has been fun and a little challenging but the challenging part of it is a whole different story.  One of the fun highlights is being blessed with opportunities to do some photo shoots.  Through the couple shoots I have done my skills are being polished and the industry is coming alive:)  This particular photo session was a first for me; an engagement shoot or what I would call the beginning to a beautiful LOVE STORY.

Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and LOVE is in the air.

Little Olive Louise

Another little girl has joined our family.  Meet my sweet little niece, Olive Louise.
She is the first one in the pack of cousins to have brown hair. 
Your one of a kind little Olive.

Newborns just give me a happy feeling and a bit of an itch for another one of my own.
