Morning Run

I have been really pushing myself to get out of bed first thing in the morning and work out. That's my time to do something good for me and De-stress. I know if I don't do it then, it wont be happening that day. It was pretty chilly this morning but, absolutely beautiful out. so glad I was able to find the drive in me to get out this morning to get a picture of this during my run.
totally made me appreciate all the beautiful things God has created and for gorgeous sunrises:)

Lately it feels like time is flying by so fast, and I hate how the stores already have Christmas decorations out before Halloween. Cant we enjoy each season! I for one have difficulty taking the time to be content with each new thing that happens. whether its with Connor or Gerret, my business or just life in general. I am always pushing and thinking about what comes next and how to get there. Its something that's a work in progress for me. With this feeling of time speeding up I am going to try and be better about enjoying each phase or schedule and look for the good in all of it. Its challenging and easy to get wrapped up in the day to day tasks. Gerret has a very busy schedule not allowing for lots of time together and with my growing business which I am so thankful for. I don't step back and allow myself to feel joy in all that we do have.

I love and am so grateful to my father in heaven for all the blessing even the ones that.... I will just say it don't feel like blessing at all. I do know that there are lessons in everything and the lord will teach them to us one way or an other. I am grateful for a loving family and a husband who works so incredible hard at his job and is always trying to excel in his job and in himself, who loves Connor and I so much. I am blessed by being able to fall in love with another little man who has stolen my heart, who is teaching me much patience;) and is so much fun to have in our home and family I cant imagine my life without him. I am fortunate to have the ability to be a stay at home mom and have the skill to work on the side to help carry the load. I love what I am able to do and make a direct impact on someones life and health. I am thankful to be here in Texas. I miss California but, there are so many great things about being here that I know at one point if we do ever leave Texas, its gonna be really hard.

This turned into what I am grateful for post which allowed me to really contemplate whats important and that is family and our savior and gospel because without him and his sacrifice we wouldn't have much. I am gonna enjoy this moment and the time that I have to take it;)

Time for a hair cut

Connor has tons of hair! Its crazy in the morning and after every nap it has been getting a little out of control look like a little Albert Einstein. I have been reluctant to cut it because its so cute long and shaggy. I decided with the holidays coming and us getting ready to go out of town in december it was time for a trim. well the girl I go to for my hair Beth she is awesome! took off 2 inches of hair on his head. she said she has never taken that much hair off a one year old before;) He did a great job during the whole process. I must say to he looks so handsome and clean cut now;) I love the look and feeling of your hair right after a cut so healthy and shiny.

here are some before and afters.

It was hard to get a shot of him afterwards he was ready to run around by then. He looks clean cut I love it;)

Trick or Treating!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! We certianly did this year. I normally dont get into Halloween so much at least since I was a teenager I haven't gotten into it. With kids though its so much fun and cool to get them dressed up! We went over to my brother house this year to go trick or treating in there neighborhood. It ws a super fun night we had chilli and cupcakes before heading out. We went trick or treating with superman, Thor, a cowboys cheerleader, and my monkey.The only one that really understood what was going on was Thor a.k.a Ethan. Next year Connor will have better grasp on whats going on. Looking forward to next year, I already know what we are all gonna be! Thanks Danny and Veronica for having us it was a great night;)

I wasn't able to get a picture of Thor he was pretty fast in getting to those doors!
