New YOU in the New YEAR! (Part 1)

New YOU in the New YEAR…are you tired of hearing that yet?  😉  As a family, we’ve decided to cut sugar from our diet, not completely but we’ve made some great changes!  I’ve also decided to really focus during my workout classes and dedicate that hour to bettering myself so I can take care of my family the rest of the day.  Besides these life changes in 2018, I wanted to get your feedback on procedures/beauty routine goals.

Okay gals, first of all, thanks to everyone who filled out the email survey!  I had a TON of great feedback & I’m so excited to share all the answers with you from an expert in the medical/beauty field.
Side Note: The survey went out to a random selection, so if you didn’t receive one this time…you probably will next time. 🙂

These are the MOST asked questions from roughly 150 responses.  You all said that you WANT to make a change in the New Year, but are hesitant because these questions haven’t been answered BY AN EXPERT…so here we go! Continue reading “New YOU in the New YEAR! (Part 1)”

TopShop Sweater

Happy New Year, week one is officially behind us!  For all my KC girls out there, this morning around 2am it finally reached 33 degrees which put us above freezing for the first time in 16 days!  This week I struggled making it to all of my workouts, and I think it was the combo of the freezing temps & post-holiday hoopla! 😉  I am super excited to start this week & officially get back on track.  I am cutting sugar out of my diet & will share more about why & recipes soon!

Today, I wanted to share this sweater that you may have seen on Insta.  I love the details & fit!  I can’t wait to share it with you all…

2017 >>> 2018

Who’s ready to kiss 2017 goodbye & ring in the New Year?  We are going to try and stay up until midnight…which hasn’t happened in like 3 years.  Nate bought passes to Snow Creek in Weston, MO & we planned to use them tonight BUT it’s -8 in KC sooo….our plans changed.  Luckily I had a back-up plan with some fun activities for the entire family.  I’m sharing my favorite champagne drink as well! 🙂

Christmas Traditions

This year Ayden is 2 & definitely more aware of all the Christmas fun compared to last year! Ayla, my 4 year old is completely obsessed with Elf on the Shelf, Christmas movies & singing Christmas carols! It makes the season all the more fun seeing their excitement! I know sometimes the holiday season can get busy & crammed with just running from here to there, so I try to take one or two days to make it a fun, adventurous time for the girls! These are the best times to create holiday traditions that I hope will be passed down generations to come. Today I wanted to share my favorite family tradition(s) & a few fun gift options this year!
