Smile, and make the most of the day, life is such a beautiful gift and it is up to us to choose to love and live our best each day!

Get Fit
Friday, March 24, 2017 14 Comments Images

Hello lovelies! I hope this post finds you all doing well and enjoying your day! Today, I am talking about something that I am so passionate about and has been a big part of my daily life over the course of the last year or so, and that is getting, or staying, or working towards being fit. When I use the phrase "getting fit," I realize that might mean something different for each one of us. We are all unique in our body types, schedules, work demands, family responsibilities, and so many other things that take our time each day. We are also all different in what we want our bodies to look and feel like, do getting fit can mean something very unique to each of us, and I love that. I love that living a healthy lifestyle and striving to be fit is a very individual journey. The important thing is that each of us Get Your Start somewhere, however and wherever you can.

I am excited to be partnering with Kohl's and Under Armour again to share a bit about my own fitness journey and some activities/exercises that have helped me get started. Earlier this week, you may remember that I shared the Kohl's Bear Crawl Challenge with you, which was a challenge for each of us to get out of our comfort zone and try an exercise that we probably wouldn't routinely do and have some fun with it! Well today, if you haven't tried the Bear Crawl Challenge yet, I challenge you to take it (see my previous post here about the prizes you can win if you share it via social media)! Some of the other exercises that I enjoy doing and mixing it up with are ones that I can do with just my body weight. Along with cardio such as running at the park or trail running, I like to mix in a variety of stretches, lunges, push-ups, Hiit cardio, and jumping exercises. You can see some examples below, and I try to do exercises that will work different areas of my body, ranging from my arms and chest, to my core and legs.

I am sporting my gear from Under Armour at Kohl's again and I absolutely love it. I mixed in some colors with this workout look and the pop of pink brings some fun and flare to the outfit. The active wear from Under Armour at Kohl's is comfortable, the selection and variety they have is fantastic, and most importantly it is functional. It keeps me cool and fits right in the right places so that I can workout and exercise and not have to think about or worry about what I am wearing. If you haven't had a chance to yet, go checkout the Under Armour active wear at Kohl's for yourself! And remember to keep your workouts new and fresh, and if you haven't started on your fitness journey, get started now!

We Arrived
Thursday, March 23, 2017 11 Comments Images

Hey gang! Happy Thursday and I hope this post finds you happy and well! Today I am throwing it back to our weekend visit to the Montage at Deer Valley. If there is one thing that our boys love, it is hotel rooms haha! Seriously, I don't know if it's because we have traveled so much with them from when they were very little, or what it is, but when they hear we are going out of town and staying in a hotel, they get so excited! They think the hotel room is a like this non-stop party and play area and the minute we get into our room, they want to run and jump on the bed! I think they get a bit of this excitement and enthusiasm for hotels from Brod haha. He loves to travel, especially with the boys and he is usually the first one to jump onto the bed and Hanes and Arrow follow suit! They love their dad and pretty much want to do whatever he does!

Any who, we had an awesome weekend up at the Montage in Deer Valley. We ate lots of yummy food and s'mores, we swam in both the indoor and outdoor pools, we wandered and explored Park City, and we spent a ton of time just hanging out with one another, which is always my favorite part of any of our trips. The boys are growing up so fast and so any time I have to be with them and listen to them and hang around them is cherished time! I love them so much and am so proud to be their mama. Both Hanes and Arrow are developing their little personalities and are such funny and silly dudes. I can't believe I have a 5 and almost 3 year old, it truly is crazy how time flies and I hope that I can continue to remember to make the most of every moment and every day I have with my guys! Which, speaking of, I am going to go kick it with them right now, but thank you all for following and for inspiring me in so many ways! I love you all! Have a great day and spread good wherever you can!

Mexico Recap Round 1
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 15 Comments Images

Happy hump day ya'll! Today I am doing a little throwback, even though it is not Thursday, to my girls trip that we took to Mexico! I love my girlfriends so much and I feel so extremely lucky and blessed to have the friends that I do!

A few weeks back 8 of us took a little trip down to Puerto Vallarta and it was absolutely amazing! I had been to Mexico a couple of times before, once for work and once for Brod and I's honeymoon, but I had never been to Puerto Vallarta, and let me just tell you that I loved it there. I seriously already want to go back! The girls and I had such a great time down there. We chilled at the beach, at the pool, went zip-lining, explored the city, and overall had such a blast! Probably my favorite part of the trip was the time we spent just chatting and laughing and talking about life together. I really love my friends so much and I am so thankful to have a close group of friends that I know genuinely care for one another and wish and hope for the best for each other. I feel like real, true friends are hard to come by and I feel so fortunate to have the group of friends that I do. I wanted to give you a little glimpse into our trip and time in Puerto Vallarta and show you through pictures who my beautiful friends are! I have also linked a bunch of the pieces that I wore while in Puerto Vallarta below so check them out! Thank you all for following and I hope that you have such a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks so much for your kind words, and your love and support you give me each day!

Keeping up with the dudes!
Monday, March 20, 2017 9 Comments Images

Hey guys! I hope this post finds you happy and well! Spring is here and I am so excited! I love Spring and all it brings...the sunshine, the flowers, the rain, the new life, the new beginnings. It is a season of freshness and energy and I absolutely love it. We are coming at you today from one of the most popular local travel spots, that being Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. The boys and I love a good staycation and mixing up the routing of our normal schedule with a little spring adventure. Today, I am thrilled to be partnering with one of my favorite brands out there in this big beautiful world, that brand being H&M Kids! Ever since the birth of my boys, I have had a passion for finding them clothes that are both comfortable and fun! Like most 5 and 2-year-old little dudes, my guys never stop running around and playing. They love to be silly, they love pretending to be ninjas, and their energy level seems to be non-stop haha! Even when we are traveling, the energy and fun doesn't seem to stop! We travel quite a bit as a family and this particular weekend was one that took us to beautiful Deer Valley for a little staycation, and whether it be at home or on the road, when it comes to putting them in clothes, I put great value on them being comfortable and fun/stylish! And I have found that perfect combo of comfy and fun at H&M Kids! They have so many awesome options for my boys and when I say the clothes are fun, I mean they are fun for the boys because of the prints and characters that are on them, so from the boy's perspective they are fun and cool to wear! From Star Wars and Avengers, to Angry Birds and ocean animals, they have so many stylish pieces that Hanes and Arrow are excited to wear!

Another facet of spring arrivals from H&M Kids that I love are all the sweats options! My boys seriously love wearing sweats more than anything, and as a mom, I love putting them in sweats that I know are a comfortable fit and high in quality when it comes to look and material. Our weekend at Deer Valley (pictured below) was one that sweats were definitely going to be part of the boy’s wardrobe, not only for comfort and style, but because it was still a little chilly up there and I knew that they would be running around both inside and outside at the hotel. H&M Kids has a ton of printed and basic colored (like black, grey, and blue) sweats to choose from and all of them keep the dudes looking fresh and comfortable! If you haven't had a chance to check out the H&M Kids stuff yet, I highly recommend doing so! We have a store that is about ten minutes away from our house and I am ducking in there or looking online on a weekly basis to see what's new! If you're a mom you know that kids seem to grow out of clothes by the end of the week haha, so knowing that there are over 1000 new styles at H&M Kids fresh for the Spring season and perfect for Spring travel as well, all at great prices, is fantastic news for a mom! I hope you guys are all having a wonderful start to Spring and thanks so much for following! I would love to hear about some of the favorites you find for your little ones at H&M, and why they are your favorites! Leave a comment below and have such a great day!
