Summer so far

Our Summer so far:: 

I've been eating better, counting calories and working my way to being healthy and of course trying to lose some weight. 
I've been at it for 20 days straight, logging all of my meals with the 'My Fitness Pal' app and I've been taking walks with some girls from work as well as bike rides with J and more! 
I keep track of my journey with the apps  My Fitness Pal, Run Keeper and I just got myself a Fit Bit! If you would like to help keep me motivated and share any tips, advice and POSITIVE feedback I would love it! 

I've been trying to keep J busy, trips to the park, neighborhood pool, the library, flour painting and more 

J got his FIRST HAIRCUT! Adam needed one and well, J was looking a bit girly haha. He wasn't very excited about it but was happy to get a sucker at the end. 

Chomping on some apples!  He has a mouth full of teeth at just 18months! Whoa man. 

After 15days of counting calories and working out.. I felt horrible because I wasn't seeing results on the scale.. It all changed when I saw a lower number! Woo hoo! 

If you've been watching the news you know about the storms in Nebraska.. We had a scare Friday and well sadly our Car didn't take the baseball sized hail too well! Adam had gone to run an errand and couldn't get the car under anything. Luckily he wasn't in the car or driving when the hail hit. 

My husbands company has a Company Picnic every year. This year J was able to enjoy some of the activities! We didn't win anything at the drawings but J enjoyed a few rides. Don't worry, he is buckled up nice and tight. 

I'm still going strong keeping my self on track and trying to eat better! 
I allow myself a cheat day during the week and my husband has been helping to keep me motivated. I can already tell a difference in my skin, my mood, my energy levels and some of my clothes are fitting better! 

I LOVE grapefruit, sadly with all the acidic fruits I've been eating my mouth has been hurting! Ouch! 

We've been to the pool a few times, it's about a 15 minute walk from my house. J  doesn't know a stranger and will play with all of the kids and sit for a chat with anyone who is willing to listen to him babble. What a sweet boy. 
I bought a front bike seat called the ' Wee ride' we've gone on a few bike rides and J loves it! It's nice to change the exercise up a bit. 

 This was before his haircut of course. Uncle Jeff requested a Mohawk.. Js hair was pretty long and he just got a curly Mohawk instead haha. 

We've been keeping busy around here, I've been trying to 'disconnect' from social media and such and focus on spending my days with J and having family time. That's why I've been slacking on the posts as well.. 

Thanks for catching up with us!

25 years

{{ I started this June 12th, lol when life gets busy you just put your words in to a draft :: Enjoy }} 

Well, I made it to 25. 

I would like to first thank everyone for the love and sweet words y'all showered me with on my Birthday. 
It's a beautiful reminder that I am indeed loved. 
Thank you! 

At midnight, my husband and I were still awake finishing season 2 of Orange Is The New Black. 
Oh. My. Goodness. 
Season 3 needs to hurry on up. 

Anywho, when we finished the last episode and just took a deep breath, my husband asks what I have planned for my birthday. "Do you wanna go to Island Oasis?" I replied with "it just depends on when you get off work, I'll prob take J to the park." 
A- "well, I don't work tomorrow, I took a personal day for your birthday."
kid you not y'all, my heart fluttered like the day he asked me to be his girlfriend. 

I couldn't get to sleep last night (this morning) I was too excited to spend the day with my guys. Just me and my guys! 

We ended up getting up early and heading out to the zoo! 
Zonked. Gotta get more energy for the zoo! 

Man I wish I could sleep like that with people watching me and banging on the glass. 

Anyways, I didn't take very many pictures because well, we were just soaking up the time together as a family.. And watching J get so excited to see the animals, brush the goats and try to kiss the donkey. 

We ended up leaving with a big stuffed over priced monkey for Joseph and some of those squished pennies for us. 
 After the two hour drive home we relaxed with some friends of ours, ate some delicious ice cream cake and watched a little TV. 
It was a good & simple day. 

I'm excited to see what this year will bring. 

If you aren't following me on Instagram, you are welcome to do so! 
I'm taking a Health Journey and I love sharing it with y'all!

Peace of mind with Dropcam

We bought our first home back in December, shortly after we moved in our next door neighbors home was broken in to. 
The day my neighbor came over to let us know what happened and see if we had seen anything suspicious, my heart sank. 
Naturally, I began to worry.. Things are replaceable but my family is not. 
Even though I'm home most of the day or someone is always here, I still needed to know that we would be ok. 

Our Home was built in 1923, It has all of the original doors and locks. 
We have these nifty "night locks"  that lock the access from the outside of the house, but you're able to still open the door from inside in case of emergency. And of course we have the option of the dead bolt. 

Anyone else see The door knob from Alice In Wonderland? 

We have Two dogs that yes, bark at anything and everything. Of course I do feel secure with them in the house. You just never know.

However, with two dogs and our nifty locks I still felt like we needed something else. Paying for a monthly security system was a little out of our price range.
I wanted something affordable, easy to set up and manage as well as the piece of mind knowing I could see the inside of my home.. 

I asked around and started looking at The Dropcam. It turns out our neighbor purchased one and is now able to check in on her house from her smart phone and tablet at any time with the Dropcam App!

Recently My sister and Brother In law installed a Dropcam in their home. My sister informed me that the set up is easy, they can monitor their home from their phones and tablets and the Dropcam is surprisingly small! No big bulky security cameras sticking out of your walls and crazy wires to run through the walls! 
I love the idea of easy installation and something that will almost blend in with my home decor! 

It was great to be able to have two people recommend the Dropcam, I know many people may be concerned about the Wi-Fi monitoring due to the stories of people hacking baby monitors. However,keep in mind if you keep a lock on your wireless internet it can be avoided. 

The Dropcam will be a great addition to our home, basement (when the kiddos get older and play downstairs) and even our Garage! 

Check out their website for more information and even videos from Dropcams that the public can access! You'll find some pretty cool ones!
