Fit 4 Redheads

"You are so skinny." " You lost all your baby weight didnt you?" "Oh your nursing that explains it." SERIOUSLY!? Yes Im nursing. BUT I didnt just push Makenna out let her suck on my tatas for alittle bit and boom it melted off! I have worked my butt off literally. As a quote I came across once read. "Exercise can be a pain in the butt, but it sure gives me a nice one" Two reasons why I exercise; Shyenne and Makenna. I want to set a good example for my kiddos. I want to be here for my kiddos. Im a firm believer exercise is a cure all. The next time you are depressed, anxious, stressed, sore, tired or whatever the feeling may be take a brisk walk I guarentee you will feel better. So no more excuses people get off your couches and move!!! A chapter in my life has ended and another one begins. Photography business is closed BUT I have got more free time to be fit 4 my redheads!

(yes some say Im screwed, BUT I created them they will meet their match ;) I love: red heads, my husband, family, friends,taking pictures! short hair ( I rock it), fake nails,  wine, perfume ( I freak if I only have one bottle), shoes (heels, flats whatev, I will take em), purses, big sunglases, big earrings, chocolate give me a choice between candy or candy bar Im taking the candy bar! Running (clears my mind, I can dance and sing while running too, whatever works to enterain my lil beings while momma clears her head) , coffee I love a good flavored coffee! Reading- its like watching a movie to me. I laugh and cry out loud. Music- especially when its a warm day and I can roll all windows down in the Tahoe and me and the girls will be jamming with my mimi me belting it out behind me. I am: outgoing, loud, driven, inspired, and loved :)

Rain Rain go away......or stay ???

It sure has been a wet few months. Farmers almanac predicted a mild and wet winter so far they have hit that one on the nose. Rainy day means my husband doesnt work. He works outdoors, bless his heart (yes in the blazing heat and frigid cold) but not in the rain. So when he doesnt work it effects our wallet therefore our budget. It has been a rough few months financially with the rain days and in normal circumstance I would stress and be in a pretty crumy mood when we shared our days off.

But now rather than stress and feel crumy I am blessed to have a family day in the middle of the week. My husband is with our daughter all day at build a bear for a daddy and daughter day while my youngest and I lounge around in our pjs as I try to kick this cold. So from this day forward I will not stress and feel crumy when I wake up at 6am and see my husband planted on the couch starring at the radar I will embrace it and thank god we have a family day in the middle of the week :-) Along with our family day who says rain days have to be grey and boring. I grabbed the Nikon threw some rain boots on my daughters feet and told her to stand in puddles. (see below)
