Month One: 4 Pounds

So I'm not gonna lie, a month ago I thought I would be posting a much higher number of pounds lost. But nope...in 4 weeks I've only lost 4 pounds. But this month I've learned a lot about myself and I've been consistent. And that hasn't happened in a long time. Also, I think I've lost more inches than pounds, but I didn't measure last month to know what they are. (WHOOPS)

I'm Done Hiding: Bringing my food addiction to light.

So I've debated for a long time over writing this post. I just feel so much shame...like my friends and readers will be disappointed in me.

But I know that nothing good comes from hiding in the darkness, so I'm ready to just bite the bullet and be honest. And I need accountability and somewhere to get my feelings out.

The Break Our Marriage Needed

This past week in Puerto Rico for our anniversary was such a blessing. We are so thankful for Chris' parents and my parents who tag-teamed on watching the kids to make our getaway possible. We love y'all!

1, 2, 3, Number Themed Birthday Party

I had the BEST time planning the kids' birthday party this year for several reasons...but the main one was this was the first time in 3 years I hadn't just given birth to a baby. I wasn't sleep deprived or on pain meds, so this was awesome! (Ha)

Farmhouse Playroom Tour

So yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby and was so excited that their wooden wall art was 50% off. The empty wall above the kids' book shelf was driving me crazy and I knew what I wanted to do in there, I was just waiting on the right time (i.e. Someone was watching the kids...) and for us to have the money for me to get the things I needed.

A Day In The Life: 2017

So I recently went back and re-read my previous day-in-the-life post and whew! Things have changed since then. And honestly that makes me a little happy. (Ha) I do not miss all of the early feedings and pumping a bazillion times a day!

It Takes Time To Grow Roots

We have been visiting churches, and even though we haven't found one yet, we are trying our best not to become discouraged.

It takes time to make friends, build community, and cultivate meaningful relationships. And I have to remind myself of that a lot.
