New Year New You New Way To Get Fashionable Fitness Gear #pvBody

Here is my bodies story in a nutshell. I was a skinny Minnie until puberty hit! Then just looking at a cupcake and I was gain weight! I’ve always been thick, sometimes super extra thick with a extra side of thick! A few years back a lost about 75 pounds and we got pregnant with Alice! We struggled with fertility for more than 5 yrs. Our Dr’s told me ALL THE TIME if I lost some weight it would make it easier for us to get pregnant. They were right!! I tried SO HARD not to gain a lot of weight while I was pregnant with Alie. I only gained 25 pounds, not too bad huh? I lost nearly ALL of it before I was even out of the hospital once I had her. Then breastfeeding helped me keep it off. But now, it’s been more than 2 years since I stopped breastfeeding and I’ve put on about 40 pounds! YES FORTY POUNDS!

So….here is where New Year NEW ME comes in play! I have to work out. Plus, with me being as sick as I just was I feel like I really need to take better care of myself.  We all know you can’t get into better shaped without working out. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had workout clothes that made us feel great, felt great and was fashionable? If you check out pvBODY that is just what you will find with the added bonus of the outfit being shipped straight to you!





Here is the outfit they sent me. I LOVE IT! It’s super comfortable and it holds all the “jigglies” in!  It moves with you so it’s really comfy to workout in. It’s also made of a special dry material that keeps you dry while you workout.  I’ve also decided that this is my BEFORE pic!! We’ll just have to see how great I’ll look in a few months, eh?

Laptop is Fixed, I’m Fixed….OMG I missed y’all!!!

WOW!!! I have missed y’all! It feels SO AWESOME to back on here and back with y’all!!  I don’t have any crafties for y’all today, not YET anyhow. I had a BUNCH planned for Christmas and New Years but life happened!!  I have LOTS of Valentine ideas so stay tuned in!

So….what happened right?? Well….. It starts with, I GOT A JOB!! I am a Teachers Assistant at the Kids R Kids Learning Academy that my sweet Alice Marie goes to. I have 21 3 year olds and I fell crazy in love with them on day one!!  Not working for nearly 5 years, especially in a school filled with “kid cooties”, and maybe 2 years of breastfeeding left my immune system seriously lacking!!  I got sick. Fever of 103.2 and I ended up in Urgent Care clinic. While on antibiotics my laptop came down with it’s own illness. One day I got the BSOD!! Ya know, the Blue Screen of Death!!! Laptop went to the HP hospital. Antibiotics for bronchitis didn’t work. Ended up back in the Urgent Care clinic only this time I was diagnosed with PNEUMONIA!!!


🙁 Huge sad face! Have you ever had it? It is absolutely DREADFUL!!! :'( I went on some serious antibiotics along with 6 other prescriptions!

I think I slept for about 4 days while in “pneumonia recovery” I don’t remember them at all! I’m much better now! It’s been about 2 weeks and I’m almost back to normal. Still coughing up yuck and still just a bit weak. Pneumonia is rough y’all!

AND…I got my laptop back with all my files and pics INTACT!! Y’all know, for a mom and a blogger losing your hard drive is a super scary thought!

Since I missed y’all so much I really wanted to share with y’all what’s been going on in my world!!


Before all the super sickies started David helped me make these cute Santa’s for my class late one night.  We had the kids glue cotton balls on Santa’s beard. I saved one for Alice and had her make it when she got home from school.


IMAG2349b Alice and Daddy put up the tree. Ya know, I never finished our tree or our mantel!! The tree was done enough that Alice loved it, but the box of ornaments I had bought in a the new scheme still hasn’t been open! Well, I’m ready for next year right!?
