Yesterday morning started off rough. It was rainy and just blah. But luckily it turned into a lovely hot sunny day.

One great thing about working from home is that you don’t always have to ‘get dressed’.  One badContinue Reading

Sorry for the late post this morning. We met up with some friends and went for a walk. It was a lot of fun to have some girl talk about babies and pregnancy. Jax came too! Our friend Michelle has a 3 month old little boy. He did so good on the walk. It putContinue Reading

We experienced some major camera issues yesterday while we were filming a new purely training workout video. Seriously cameras haven’t been on our side lately. We sent in our broken one, waiting for it to get fixed, so our iphones have been it. Ya, so the quality not the greatest, but life goes on. WeContinue Reading

Every once and awhile I will remember this perfect strawberry shortcake that I enjoyed from a restaurant in NYC (that I went to many years ago on a family trip).

Yesterday we had a massive rain storm. It rained pretty much all day long.  That storm definitely made up for not having any rain for the past few days. We were feeling spoiled in a way with all the amazing sunlight we were getting. Guess you do need a good rain storm every now andContinue Reading

  Thank you for all the sweet comments and tips about me not wanting or needing a changing table for the nursery. Looks like just about everyone of you did not use a changing table.

Ice cream has been a food group that has slowly made it’s way back into our lives. Mostly from my pregnancy but I have this feeling that Michelle has been enjoying it too. We grew up in sunny Florida so ice cream was always around. It’s a family favorite. Our older sister loves her ice cream.Continue Reading
