My Loves




I’m linking up with Jamie for What I’m Loving Wednesday and Michelle for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday.


I’m loving my wonderful husband. He does so much for me and always goes out of his way to take care of our family. He is an amazing Daddy and I am so thankful for him!


I’m loving my 20 in 30 Workout Challenge. So far I’ve completed 5 workouts which  means I only have 15 to go! I haven’t really done anything too strenuous or intense but it’s definitely motivating me to get my butt in gear!



On a similar note, I’m loving that my jogging stroller and Garmin came in the mail today. Now I really have no excuse not to run. Hopefully I’ll start building up my mileage and my Daily Mile widget won’t look so pitiful! Now I just need some cute running gear. I’ll take one of each, please!

I’m loving these awesome recipes I’ve found on Pinterest. We’ve made the potatoes twice and they are delish!

Crispy Potatoes

This soup was SO good and SO easy. I added crushed tortilla chips just before serving. Oh my- all I can say is YUMMY!

Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup

I’m loving that I bought some Christmas books for our collection today. I was inspired by another wonderful Pinterest find. The idea is to wrap 24 Christmas books and open one each day like an Advent calendar.  Once you have your collection, you can use the same books each year. Although E is still too small to really understand, I’m going to start it anyway. It’s never too early to start fun family traditions.

As always, I’m loving these beautiful baby blues.

Combine them with that sweet little grin and my heart just melts…

Aww that is such a cute picture of you and your husband. My husband is in the military too. Good luck with your workouts/running! That sounds like a cool program. And, I am so excited that you actually made that potato recipe because I've been looking at it for a while wondering if it's as good as it looks.

I'm glad that you made the potato recipe. I've been thinking about making it and I'm glad to know that it's as yummy as it looks!

I'll take one of each of those running gear items too, and you can throw in a garmin : ) Have fun with you new running toys, and way to go on the workouts! Oh and those potatoes look amazing!

I just love the christmas book idea - how wonderful and what a cool tradition to start:) And major props for getting back to your work-out plan!!! I've slacked a bit in that department too...its so hard to do everything for yourself with a wee one at home!!
