Motivational Monday

Good Morning lovelies!!! 

I am again on path of getting fit and healthy. Sometimes I get discouraged because I'm not seeing the results that I want to see but I have to remind myself that it takes time and that I need to find the patience it takes to trek on the fitness journey. I feel like it's a no ending cycle but alas I'm okay with that since I want to be healthy for my daughter and husband.  I have a long road ahead of me but one that I welcome!!! Although it's really hard to stay motivated, lets start off today with a little motivation:

And most of all

Ana =)


Oh man it's Monday again!! I feel like weekends go by soo fast. I petition we have 3 day weekends every week!! How was your Mother's Day?! I must say I very much enjoyed my first Mother's day!! I still cannot believe that I'm a mother! I feel like it's surreal, but man am I blessed with such an amazing daughter! =) I'm taking this monday to update you on my life.  For a while now my husband and I have been toying with the idea of moving to either Austin or San Antonio, it wasn't like a 100% for sure that's what we're doing thing but we said if it happens then so be it.  So the hubby then started looking at jobs, and applying for a few here and there.  Not thinking it would EVER happen, he got a call for an interview!!!! So he had THREE(yes three) phone interviews before they flew him out to do a face to face interview.  Well dun dun duuuun....HE GOT THE JOB!! YAY! We're moving to San Antonio!!! I'm so excited like AHHHHHH I cannot believe it's happening!! We had also been trying to get approved for a home loan in Dallas and I'm glad we never found a house we liked. Another thing that is happening in my life is that since we're moving I've decided to transfer schools and finish my masters in San Antonio!! It will add a couple of years to my degree plan but I'm really excited because they offer the exact thing that I've been looking for.  If I get accepted I will be getting my masters in counseling with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy with a military emphasis! This is exactly what I've been wanting to do, but I never found a program in Dallas that offered it! So I had been doing community counseling! So yeah that's what been happening in my life!! So cross your fingers and say a littler praying that everything works out the way that it should!! =D


Cobwebs at my fingertips...

Obviously, those are metaphorical cobwebs since I'm super scared of spiders.  But cobwebs on my fingertips seemed to be an appropriate way to describe how I'm feeling.  I've been pondering the ways to jump right back into blogging after my blog hiatus that lasted WAAAY too long.  But there is no easy way to jump back into it and get the blogging juices rolling.  I've asked myself what could I do to get myself back into it, and honestly guys I cannot think of any besides baby steps.  I can't come back an automatically start breaking out the blog posts that used to come somewhat easy to me.  So I've decided to start by writing about my current obsessions at the moment.  Lately I've been seriously becoming a planner addict, I mean I loved planners before BUT I'm like ADDICTED to it.  There are so many cute planners out there that I just want!!!

Like the Erin Condren Life Planner (which I ordered last week and am waiting very impatiently for it)

There is the Kikki K Planner... let me tell you guys this company sure makes cute planners!!!

The Arc System from Staples... it's super cute and really easy to customize

and of course FiloFax..... I mean there is no other way to put it filofax planners are ADORABLE.

Perfectly Pink Fridays: I love pink edition

The return of Perfectly Pink Fridays is amongst us =P.... I know many of y'all, if not all of you know how obsessed with pink I am!!! Even my daughters outfits reflect how much I love pink!! So I thought I would post some of my favorite outfits, and nail polish.


Baby Item Reviews

As many of you know, I had a cute little baby girl. :) Which means a lot of new items that my husband and I buy and try out, some things because we absolutely need them and some things just for fun.  I thought I would do my very first review post on some of the baby items that we have purchased and how I've liked them.

1. Snuza hero
So the Snuza hero clips onto the baby's diaper and monitors movement.  Although the Snuza hero does not prevent SIDS it does monitor the baby's movements and it gives you warning if your baby stops moving.  What does this mean? well since it clips onto the diaper the movement it registers is the baby's breathing, if the baby doesn't move for 15 seconds the Snuza hero starts buzzing and if at 20 seconds the baby hasn't moved it starts an alarm.

My Thoughts: I LOVE IT, BEST $100 that we have spent.  I had read a lot of reviews where they had lot so false alarms and although it has happened twice with me I just can't express how much better I sleep at night.  I definitely recommend it!!

2. Tommee Tippee bottles (9 oz)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tommee Tippee bottles and let me tell you so does Aria. They are easy to clean and the nipple is really soft (idk if that the word I'm looking for) so it's easy for Aria since they have different flow variations (she is at the first one which is low flow).  We tried Avent bottles and Aria DID NOT like them.  We have never had a problem with Tommee Tippee though. 

3. Diaper genie elite
Okay when the husband was like lets get a diaper genie I was like Pffffttttt we don't need a diaper genie, we can just get a trashcan. WELL aren't I glad that we did. It's AWESOME and our baby's room does not smell whatsoever.  It is extremely easy to change the liners and it holds a TON of diapers!!!!

4. La leche league sports nursing bra
I don't know what I would have done without this bra, especially when my boobs got engorged. SERIOUSLY it was a lifesaver, because I was in so much pain.  It seriously helped me a lot even though I ended up not being able to breastfeed :(. 

5. Munchkin high speed bottle and food warmer with pacifier cleaning basket
I do not recommend this bottle warmer.  You have been forewarned. It lasted like a few days before it didn't work anymore. We had to go buy a new one because it stopped warming the bottles.  =(
