Hey everyone!! My incredible sister is here with you today for a guest post and I can’t wait for you to get a few minutes with her. She is the best and I lucked out big time to get her. PS she did my hair and make-up for the wedding too. This is her second post ever (once upon a time she wrote a post about a race she did years ago and how she ate Panda Express right before) and she is very excited to make an appearance here again and she has the best news ever. PS my mom is in charge of all comments this week… but seriously;)
Hey everyone! I hope your Monday is a good one…. We have a surprise for you!!!!
O is a big brother!!!! If you were wondering why I haven’t been around as much on the blog it’s because I’ve been pregnant and chasing around all of these little ones. Back to back pregnancies might be one of the hardest physical things I’ve ever done.
I am now officially a mom of FIVE kids.
Life. Is. Crazy. But it is sure beautiful.
Let’s be honest here, I don’t actually sleep anymore. I will someday but definitely not for quite some time.
It’s gotten to the point where if somebody offered me a million dollars or a nap… I would choose a nap:) My husband is beyond amazing and the older kids are the best helpers but as for right now, we take life one day at a time.
My main goal right now is to keep my kids alive. Beyond that, I have no goals;) If I shower for the day I give myself a pat on the back and say, “Good job, way to be productive.”
Over the years my exercise has changed a lot. For years I ran or I focused on strength training and I could join Janae in the canyon for our random miles together. I’m sure down the road we will get back to that again but for now I focus on taking a few walks a day with the little ones and a few times a week I make it to the gym before the kids wake up for the stair climber or elliptical. There is a time and season for everything in life and the time and intensity I used to spend exercising honestly exhausts me just thinking about it. Maybe one day I’ll be back to that but for right now I’m enjoying these walks.
Turns out thumbs make the best pacifiers, they never get lost. Win-win for everyone involved.
Being a mom brings me so much joy. These kids have my heart!
This man here is beyond amazing. I feel like the luckiest person to have him by my side and I’m really lucky to have found him. I feel like Janae and I sure have had a lot in common over the years especially when it comes to having the same parents (hahah I kid but really, I am so beyond happy she has found Andrew and that they are now MARRIED).
Maybe in the future I’ll write a post on the blog about food or fitness but for now… I’ll just include a million random pictures of the kiddos. Which is actually what Janae does pretty much every post;)
This selfie only took about 500 tries. I had to angle my face just right… You’re welcome. Please don’t think this is a spontaneous selfie.
Usually my selfie looks more like this. Hahaha Janae is not here to stop me. And yes, that is her retainer.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the day!
Love you so much sissy (Janae). I hope you are having a blast in Mexico.
What’s your fitness looking like this season of life? How has it changed over the years?
How much sleep did you get last night (I like to live through you too)!?
Has your sister/brother ever embarrassed you?
Favorite sibling memory?
