Hitting the Blog Running

Guess who’s back, back again… 

Soooo I have been gone for a bit, ha oops! And since I have been gone quite awhile, I think I am long overdue for a catch up post in 3… 2… 1…:

First things first, we bought a house! We actually built 2 but we got down to about 2 months prior to close on the first one and were very dissatisfied with several items. Ultimately, we knew we had to walk away because the builder was not going to fix the issues we had found – or if they had, it would not have been to our standards! Our second home building process went much smoother. We ended up finding a nicer home in a better neighborhood and school district. There have been some hiccups in the almost year that we have lived in this home, but I feel that is to be expected with any new build. Maybe before our 2 year anniversary I will have it decorated and be able to show you around! HA – anyone else a decorating procrastinator? 😊

We are extremely happy with our home purchase especially since we have a good size yard for our BABY BOY to play in! Yep, that’s right – we had a baby! Shortly after walking away from the first home and signing the contract for our second home, we found out we were expecting! It definitely wasn’t planned since our lives were already pretty hectic – we moved twice while I was pregnant – but I honestly couldn’t imagine it any other way. We both hoped for a little boy and found out early on that it was indeed a boy. I think I may do a whole pregnancy/birth story for you so I will spare the details for now! But in December 2018, our lives changed forever when our sweet boy Tyler came into this world. Please enjoy some adorable throwback pics of that guy below!

That was a very SHORT and sweet recap of what has been going on in the last couple years! I feel like I am at a point in my life where I’d like to write and express again through my blog. With everything that has changed – buying a home, having a baby, breastfeeding, becoming dairy free for previously mentioned baby, some fitness challenges with Paige Hathaway, and so much more – I think I have a lot of diverse topics to touch on, so if you are still with me, thanks and I hope you are excited to see what I start cranking out on here like I am!
