Prayers December 14, 2012

Prayers go out to all families involed in the elementary school shooting in CT.  Tonight I will be holding my babies a little longer, a little tighter.  Keep your loved ones close and make sure to let them all know how much they mean to you.  You never know what the day will bring.


God Bless everyone:)


Ready, Set, Go…. December 12, 2012

Filed under: exercise,healthy living — enjoyingthechaos @ 7:40 pm

So I’ve been searching for a workout program that i can fit into my busy schedule, give me amazing results, and one that doesn’t have me starving myself.

I’m pretty sure I found it.  I’ve been waking up early in the morning to workout and up until yesterday, I’ve been winging it…not any more.

Brianna, a personal trainer who lost 100 lbs herself, has developed a program for women who are trying to lose their baby weight and get the body they want back.  I’m still trying to lose the baby weight from lil b…even though she just turned 6:/

Check it out for yourself over at Bikini Body Mommy

I did the fit test today:
Squat Jumps     27
Speed Squats   27
High Knees      100
Burpees           8
Pushups          25 on my knees
Elbow Planks  18 seconds
Lunges            15
Tricep Dips     12

If you decide to join me..keep me posted as to your progress.


Weekend Recap December 3, 2012

What a great weekend.  Me, mom and the kids left around 12:30 and headed to the beach.  We had to stop for our annual Arby’s lunch but then got right back on the road. 

We checked in, headed for some specialty shops and had dinner at the Dough Roller…yum!

The next day, we headed to the outlets for some Christmas shopping:)  After dinner, we bundled up to get ready for the lights!


We hopped on the tram..and we were off..





Sorry pictures are so poor..i just had the camera on my phone:/


Our newest picture in front of the poinsettia tree.  This is my favorite picture every year:)

I have so many exciting things planned this month..Happy Holidays all:)

This is the view from our room!

lil b keeps sitting in the window to watch the lights.

When we got back from dinner last night, look who was hanging out.

The kids were so excited that Skip Friddle joined us at the beach.

We’re off to a long day of shopping at the outlets…this is where my Christmas begins ❤
