so that's where i am at. i am still loving pure barre. i didn't go much after our vacation but i'm definitely committed. i just love the group of women there and the community of it all. there are so many places where women are in competition with each other and just plain nasty to one another, as if we don't have enough on our plate, now we all get to judge and be judged by the very people who should be the most empathetic and understanding. i'm not going to sit here and say every person i encounter in a class is lovely and nice but most of the time they are. so many are gorgeous on the outside but even more importantly, gorgeous on the inside. so word up pure barre. you not only gave me a better body but you made me feel better about myself and better about women in general.
ok, so like i said this isn't a fitness blog, it's my family blog.
i love my kids like crazy, i know we all do but i have been feeling lately like the moments with them are so fleeting, especially cooper. i had to call and inquire about getting her registered for preschool next fall. yes, that's an entire year away but that means this is my last year with her at home all day long. it's so sad to me but i know she is beyond excited to start the next journey in her little life. i enjoy her so much, she is funny and witty and i get her, i totally get her sense of humor and hilarious quirks. she is in such a fun stage of life. i love it. on the other hand, her going to preschool means i get tons of one on one time with my little p man, right when he is really starting to talk. so maybe the timing is perfect. she got two years of undivided attention from me during the day, so he will also get his (pending any other additions to the mix, which currently IS NOT happening).
moving on....sad news, i left my nice camera charger in telluride and it's gonzo forever. i haven't gone to pick up a new one yet. so someone needs to call the blogger police because all the pics that i am about to post are from my trusty iphone.
so to even out this ultra-wordy blog post out. i will now inundate you with a bunch of pics. if you want to see them, check it after the jump. xoxo
we built the most legit fort ever and unfortunately it isn't represented here in the proper way
cooper had her very first face painting, she used to be totally freaked out about anyone painting anything on her face.
again, my little girl is growing up
all day. every day. he loves his tracks. i love that he has a passion at such a young age.
yes that's my bra, upside down. it looked the same in the store, so don't feel embarrassed about seeing it. while i was getting ready one day, cooper laid out this outfit for me to wear. it's good, really good.
with pants of course. i also like that she was polite enough to lay my imaginary head on a pillow.
one day my stomach sleeping baby decided to take a snooze in this funny position.
i have a funny husband. sometimes i walk into the garage and he has planted a gigantic valentine dog in the passenger seat of my car, buckled in and all because safety first even for our stuffed friends.
for the very first time this little dude helped make brownies
we hit up the first ever petting zoo that my kids would actually go in and they both loved it.
i made a really cute fall front porch display, that is actually way cuter now that i added a few extra things. i will post a pic on my instagram of the updated front porch. in the meantime, here are some pics of my cute kids on the nice front porch.
first snow of the season!
cooper is channeling her halloween spirit. originally it was with a really cute cat mask, then it was with a really freaky i'm not even sure what that is mask.
