I hope your day was awesome! Ours was! Our power was out for a bit because of the snow storm, but we had a blast anyway. We made burgers out on the grill, played Cranium, and played in the snow( obviously). I kind of like it when the power is out. It's a reminder of how fortunate we are to have electricity and warm water, but it is also a reminder of how fun it can be with no Xbox, Television, or Internet. We have a wood stove so our house was nice and toasty!! Honestly, the worse part about it for me was not being able to use my treadmill. I did my strength training instead, and soon after the power came on. So I hopped on that and ran 3 miles. It's weird but running is like my drug. I swear I get high from it.

It's snowing already! It's not even November and the flurries are here!
Goober is so excited! He keeps running and looking out the window.
It was late when it started so, my brother brought in a snowball for Goober to see. He looked at it for a minute, then leaned forward and took a bite! That was not how I thought he would react. I thought he would at least touch it first. Maybe he remembers it from when he was 10 months old...I doubt it.
Baby Fifi has a cold. I hate when babies get sick:(
I created a photo book on Shutterfly a couple weeks ago and received it yesterday! I really love how it turned out. Mine is an 8x8 with 20 pages, but you can pick from many sizes and however many pages you want. You can pick from a variety of backgrounds, stickers, fonts..it was so much fun! I am usually old fashioned and prefer regular scrap-booking, but this is a nice alternative and a faster one. I would definitely recommend it. I haven't used any other photo book services so I am not sure how Shutterfly compares to others, but I will be using them again for sure!

Found this darling quote on etsy . It is soooo beautiful!!!!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Mine has been busy! I have been trying to stay outside as much as possible, because soon it will be too cold for my little ones. My toddler would stay out all day if he could. We have a tree swing, and as he swings he yells "Eeeeee!" like the little piggy in that one commercial. Geico?
I soooooo love him:)

I have been stepping out of my comfort zone lately, doing things I was to shy or nervous to do. Silly things, like getting a whole new hair do, buying crazy glittery eye shadow. And more serious things like talking about my feelings to my family and being more assertive.
Things are feeling so much better, and I feel so much more ALIVE than I have in the past year.
Thanks for all the kind word and comments you have left me. I know my blog has been a bit unpredictable in the past ( kind of like my life),but I'm gonna stick with it! Who know what's in store for me!

We found a about a month and a half ago that my little girl has torticollis, which means her neck is tighter on one side than the other. We caught it early so it should be gone by the time she is one. I take her to physical therapy every week and she has already made a lot of progress. I am still worried, but I have done my research and I think it is completely under control. We do our little workouts several times a day. She is my little trooper.
My son, J is doing great. He is learning more and more every day. His current obsession is Elmo!! I got him some Elmo pjs that he loves to wear. He is such a happy boy.
I'm blessed to have these two precious munchkins:)

First I want to mention that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. A month where thousands of people all over the county come together to mourn those who have died because of DV, celebrate those who have survived it, and help people who are living with to make it stop.
On another note...
I ran 11 miles in 4 days!!! I am soooo happy. That is more than I ever thought I could do. When I first started working out 1 month and a half ago, I could barely survive a mile. Now, I can run 3. It feels awesome! I am planning on doing a 5k soon.

It's the story of my life.
It's getting better, though.
I am a 22 year old single mom of two AMAZING children.
They are my life.
I have had this blog for almost 4 years, and I have blogged on and off.
Now, more than ever I want to keep a record of my little family's life.
I had 2 babies very close together and that delayed many of my goals, including college.
Now, I want to do everything!
I'm going to start school again, and make my kiddos proud.
I'm going to get back in shape and be one hot mama!
See you soon!
