Things I love!!

Being a woman we have all of these "things" that make us who we are. All these places we visit. Being a Mother a Wife and a Woman, I am always trying new things, testing new recipes, reading reviews. I love when I find things that "work". Trust me not everything "works" for everyone.

Heres a few things/places that I love.

I LOVEEEEEE yummy recipes and trying new recipes. I love cooking.

Im in love with Pinterest at the moment. It makes me feel capable. Its my new obsession.

I LOVE Etsy. Im always looking for unique gift ideas or projects. I love all things homemade.

My home away from home Fitness Rehab/SASS fitness. This is where I go to get back in touch with me. This place allows me to be Jenny. Not Mommy, not Wifey, not sister or daughter. Just Jenny. Here there are endless possibilities. Here I push myself harder then I have ever pushed myself before.

The baseball field. It could be anywhere. Last weekend it was in Elk Grove. This weekend its at Raley Field. Baseball is a huge part of our lives. We have what we call a baseball family. When we are at Coles games there are so many things going on that we enjoy. We watch him play and this is one of the most exciting things as a parent. We socialize with our baseball family. These are our friends and we love them. We get to "cheat" and he yummy food. It just goes with the program ya know. Our girls get to play, Brooklyn with all the other Mommies and Taylor with her friends and on the playgrounds. It feels our cup. Its our life.

Fall. I love this time of year. The smells the chill in the air the beautiful colors the yummy food. I love it all. Its when I know the Holidays are around the corner. The Holidays for me is a time for our families to enjoy eachothers company. To be together. I love it! Our middle child has such excitement for the holidays. Every part of the Holidays, the decorating, the cooking, the gathering EVERYTHING, picturing the sparkle in her eyes motivates me during the Holidays. I love that kid.

What are some things that you love?

Some days I just need a reminder....

Fall Cravings

All my life I have had big legs. When I was a little girl I noticed at a young age my legs were different. When I sat down my thighs were wider and my calves well you get the picture. It wasn't until I was in Highschool did I come to appreciate my legs and their uniqueness. It wasn't until then did I thank my parents for the gene that they handed down to me. These legs definitely come with their own "issues". Some styles just don't work for me, no matter how hard I try. Skinny jeans, ya right. Tall Boots, HA!

The air is starting to cool. The leaves are changing. The last few days the sky has been falling. (Rain) Usually this time of year I am faced with my dilemma. I want boots. I want cute riding boots. I want to wear boots over my jeans. I am determined to make this happen. I stopped trying on boots because I knew I wasn't getting the darn things over my calf.

My girlfriend at work had on a cute pair of riding boots. She called them her biker boots. They were cute none the less. I was telling her about my leg boot issue. So she offered her boot to me to try on. She calls herself a big girl and told me she has big girl calves and a big foot and these boots clearly would fit over mine. So this has sort of been a joke for me. I have fun with it. I'm long over the insecurity. So I shuck off my shoes and attempt to stuff my foot and leg in her big girl boot. sigh. Her size 10 boot wouldn't accommodate my size 8 issue.

I love how wide calves are advertised as 14". Really!! I'm pretty sure I'm pushing 18". and if I had something around here I would measure. but for now I don't and I will just wish for some of these fall glories.

I know this has NOTHING to do with my leg boot issue. BUT I'm craving this color right now. Should I do it?

Through the eyes of babes

We made a quick trip to Target to grab a few things.

Taylor likes to dig through my purse while we are shopping, usually to find gum or lipgloss. This time she found the camera and had herself a little photo shoot....lets see what she is hungry for.

 Daddy looks serious

The End.
