Month: January 2013

Xtreme 13

My Babe has dubbed 2013 "Xtreme 13" and I'm proud to say I will be a part of that. I started exercising in 2012 and now I'm ready to kick it up several notches   My goal for 2013 is to get fit, I'm kicking the baby off the boob and I'm ready to get all of my body back. I don't want to drop lbs but I do want to make sure my heart is healthy. I would like a flat stomach though; I don't need a 6 pack or anything that is for folks that like to show off. I will continue doing Zumba but I want to try Yoga. I'm just waiting on a good Groupon/Living Social/Google Offer deal. So far we will try hiking in the spring; and indoor scuba diving and the Trapeze school in February. Last year my Babe did a lot of the obstacle course races such as the Warrior Dash, Spartan Race & Tough Mudder. Well this year WE will also do the Run Amuck obstacle race. It is a 3.5 mile competitive time course with obstacles. Yall did see the WE in there right? I'm so not speaking French right now. 
DIY

Nori’s 1st Bee Day

Three months prior to LittleCuteLips birthday I began shopping around my creative ideas for a birthday party theme.  The only thing I knew was that I wanted a DIY (do it yourself) type of thing.  After a lot of Google searching I decided to go with a "Bee Day" theme.  I began creating an idea folder of all kinds of things I wanted to have/use/create to make this party a hit for my baby girls first birthday celebration.I really wish I had done a better job at snapping pictures. I was trying to live for the moment and didn't quite capture things the way I would have liked. Oh well!
With that said here we go...

2012 is now in the Rear View

2012 was another good year in the books for me. This was a huge year of change for me and I wouldn't find out just how much until later in the year. Going from a parent of one to a parent of two is a big difference. One that you can't actually prepare for you just have to experience. With that being said it has been a joy watching our family dynamic change and even more fun having a baby in our home after seven years. That really is a long time. January 12th: I/us/we/me welcomed Nori Michelle into this crazy world at 5:10AM. She is the proud little sister to Big Brother Nasir. Our family is officially complete as a party of four.
