All The Happy

I'm a fairly simple gal. Really. The Mister might tell you different but honestly, it doesn't take much to make me happy. Lately, I've notice that I find bliss in the smallest of things.


Of course our son makes me happy. But the past couple of weeks with Connor have been ahhhmazing. He is FINALLY sleeping through the night thanks to the use of some essential oils. He has been in the best of moods and overall, makes my "job" as a stay at home Mom pretty damn simple.


If you don't like doughnuts, we can't be friends. Truth. My gosh, I love a chocolate glazed cream filled pastry. But it's been well over 19 months since I've had Krispy Kreme (my first pick and really, the best doughnut distributor ever).  I mean.. what kind of world am I living in? We don't get out and moving in the mornings too quickly so donuts aren't really an option. But Sunday, we planned our morning so I could get my eat on. So good. And so worth the calories.


There is nothing that makes me happier than being this man's wife and this sweet boy's momma. A family photo before date night was a must and I love how for the first time in ages, we got a good one with the babe smiling. I think it has a lot to do with our photographer. Connor loves his Favorite Aunt Ten. Every day spent with my guys is easily my favorite day.


I mentioned here that I was over making excuses and not treating myself/body the way I should. I've stepped it up this month with my workouts (thank to a Skinny Meg workout suggestion) and just in the last 10 days, I've notice a huge different in my energy level and that I sleep so well at night. Let's hope that when I weigh myself on June 30th, I'll see a drop in weight. Either way, this isn't going to be something I give up on. I have a number and goal in mind and plan to kill it. 

Between my guys and eating calories to just burn calories, life is good in my world. Of course, the moment I type/think/say that shit will hit the fan but that's okay. Because I've finally figure out that everything is just a phase and it does get better.

Share a little piece of your happy with me!
Enjoy your day!

    1. I gotta keep the momentum going with working out. Seeing results will get me moving anymore and I won't get those if I don't get my ass moving.

    1. I want Tim Horton's... badly... it's a northern coffee/pastry shop. I think it's Canadian. It's a must when I visit home.

  6. It is so lovely when the babies sleep through the night! What Polar watch do you have there? Would you suggest it?

    1. It a Polar F7 and I love it. It gives me an accurate calorie burn and heart rate read. It pushes me to give a little more to get to my daily burn total of 700 calories.
      A sleeping baby is the best part of parenting.. I'm kidding.. sort of.

  7. Loving this post today!
    Praise Jesus for finding yourself a Krispy Kreme! I'm more of a plain ol' glazed donut kind of gal, but to each their own. :)
    Also, tell me more about the essential oils. We've hit a serious sleep regression and I might possibly be losing my mind due to sleep exhaustion.
