Tuesday Talk!

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Hi friends!! 
Happy Tuesday!! 

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!! We had gorgeous weather here in Central Indiana (minus a few showers here and there on Sunday) and had the best time being outside and celebrating Easter!  
I will be TOTALLY honest and say that Aaron and I were MORE than ready for bedtime on Sunday night...I swear...there must be some sort of special sugar put specifically into Easter candy...because...WOW. My kids were super special by the end of the day!! HA!
Seriously was a beautiful Easter for our family and I am so grateful!!!

Some fun highlights from our weekend: The girls and I had a lot of fun coloring eggs on Saturday, we were on time (early in fact- woo-hoo!) to 7:30 am Easter Sunday Mass and we made our traditional Easter Bunny Cake! I used a silicone mold for the cake and the girls LOVED it :) I let them totally decorate the cake themselves and I think it turned out so cute!! 
It tasted really good too!! (Semi-homemade baking for the win: Aldi white cake mix + homemade cream cheese icing!)
So totally switching gears- but just thought I'd share a few random things with you today...

1) You need to follow Julie Lundgreen on Instagram- you can find her HERE!! She also has a YouTube channel...and I LOVE her videos. She is funny, extremely insightful, encouraging, honest and every time she posts something on Instagram- I am nodding my head yes and just thinking, "YES! This is SO SO good!!" If you like following REAL, funny, motivating people on Instagram- definitely check Julie out!! 
(and P.S. Julie has no idea who I am or that I follow her on Instagram...I am just a big fan of her's!)

2) Thank you SO much to the ladies who gave me some GREAT bra suggestions!! I tried out the Maidenform Comfort Devotion bra that several of you suggested- and I REALLY loved it! BUT- I ended up not keeping it- I was in between sizes- I really needed like a 34.5- so I sent it back :(
I did order a bunch of bras from Aerie per another reader's suggestion and I am excited to see if they fit- FINGERS CROSSED- because this Mama's bra situation needs some CPR stat. HA!

3) I totally forgot to share with all of you- I achieved my Lifetime Membership with Weight Watchers a little over 2 weeks ago! WOO-HOO! It was a big deal for me! :) The kids and Aaron came with me and I was so proud to have my family there!! I was thinking about writing a post about my weight loss journey (spoiler alert- it's been a LONG one)- would you be interested in reading about that? Don't worry- you can say, "Um. No." HA!'s that for some randomness?? HA! 
You can ALWAYS count on me for random ramblings ;)

Hope you have the BEST day!!

    1. Hi Kristin!

      I am so excited for you to start WW again!!
      How has your first week back gone?
      I definitely plan on writing about my weight loss journey… It's quite lengthy and I really want it to serve as encouragement to others- so I need some time to write it out.
      I am hoping this summer once my schedule gets a little bit more flexible with my kids being out of school I will have the opportunity to type it all out 😊
      I would love to be an encourager for you on your weight-loss journey… Let me know if there's anything I can do to help or any questions you might have!
      Hope you're having a great week!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
