First Year: A Letter To My Daughter: July 31, 2017

Hello Everyone! Today I am doing a special post for my sweet daughter Lilly. In the months before Lilly's birthday I knew I wanted to write a letter to her explaining our journey in having her and how much she has blessed our lives thus far. So I began writing and I think that it came out exactly how I wanted it to be. I will be holding onto it until she is 18 but until then I wanted to share it with all of you, as well as a glimpse into Lilly's first year of life and my first year as a Mother! 
I hope you all enjoy reading this and I will leave the letter I wrote to Lilly down below! Have a beautiful week and I will see you all for Friday Favorites!

When we first brought Lilly home we were experiencing an array of emotions but we were so happy to finally have our little miracle. I have to admit the first night was ROUGH, and I am sure it is for a lot of new parents. Once we figured out Lilly was going to have to eat formula it was much better. The first three months of having a …

Happy Friday Everyone! We are so excited for the weekend to arrive because we will be celebrating our little girl on Saturday! She officially turns 1 on Monday, July 31 but we are celebrating a few days earlier. I can't even believe that a year has gone by already and we are actually thinking about baby number 2! AHHH! I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with Lilly and see her grow and learn new things every day! We are in love with our little miracle and we can't wait to celebrate her tomorrow! 
I hope that all of you have big and exciting plans for the weekend !

Happy Friday Everyone! This week has been so HOT, how is the weather where you guys are? Lilly and I have been just doing tons of water play and eating the occasional ice cream! I don't want to complain though because I know summer will be gone before you know it! Speaking of that I am excited for Everything Fall, it is my absolute favorite season and I love when it rolls around each year! But for now let's just enjoy the rest of the summer!
Here is what I have been loving this week!

Hey Guys! I hope you all had a an amazing Fourth of July! We spent it with family and we had just the perfect day! Lilly enjoyed her first 4th by swimming and playing up on the in-laws land, she had a great time! I think she enjoyed eating with Papa the most, that girl loves her cheeseburgers! Anyways, I wanted to share a few holiday inspired favorites from this past week!
I hope you all enjoy!
Oh on a side note, I don't know if you all know how much I love Ms. Lauren Conrad but she had her baby boy aka Liam James and her announcement was so cute! Check it out below!

A Healthier Me

Hey Guys! Do you ever just wake up one day and think I could be doing so much more for my self to make sure I am living the best possible life! Well I have had that realization recently and I want to talk to all of you about what my plans are for achieving this change in my life. Since becoming parents Gregg and I have always said that we want to be around and active in our child or children's lives. In order to do that we have to live a healthy lifestyle and be role models for our kids. 
Now don't get me wrong we haven't lived horrible lifestyles but there is always room for improvement no matter where you are in the fitness world. So as of tomorrow we will be starting a new. Eating better, working out more and just overall watching what we eat and making sure our fitness takes a front seat to all of our lives. 
I am going to share with you a few ways that we are going to do this. Now, this for us is not just going to be a diet for a few months, we want to create a healthie…
