You know those days that are just pleasent and good?
Today was one of those.
Nothing extradinary or amazing.
Just an over all good day.

I woke up this morning and was emotional and tired.
I was fearful it was going to be a not fun day.
But a friend of mine agreed to go running with me!
So we got our FABULOUS babysitter and headed out for a 2.5 mile run!
Running with someone is sooooooooo much better then running alone.
Convo flows, and my mind doesn't even seem to notice the burn.
We are both doing the half marathon tinkerbell run in January so we are planning to train 3 days a week. Hopefully together at least two days!
I've been running for the past 3 weeks, but this was Sarah's first run back since Januarty.
So 2.5 was amazing!

I always feel so much happier after a workout! I love that.
We then took our 4 kiddo's and sitter to lunch. WABA GRILL! YUM and Healthy :)

After all the fun me and the kids went home and they blessed me by taking an hour and half nap. Well Blake napped for sure, I'm not positive if Bella did but either way she stayed quiet in her room so that's all I ask.

I was so thrilled with the time of peace and quiet I rewarded them after nap time with fudgecicles!!

And after that I broke into my stockpile and gave them each a bottle of shaving cream!

Needles to say they LOVED IT!
It was super cute and silly and messy and just plain fun!
I highly recommend it for all moms.

After that mess they wanted to wash the table so we changed into swimsuits, 
 got the slip n slide set up
got buckets and rages to clean the table.

I made an iced coffee and put my feet up!

That's what I call a perfect afternoon!

And now as I finish up this blog post my beautiful bff Leah invites us over for dinner! YIPPEE I also don't have to cook!!!!
I see God in all of this today.
All the joy!
All the blessings!
All the Love!

"Dear Blake
This is the day that we celebrated you, and for you it was a day of presents, fun, and family. For me it was seeing the joy in your heart. I can not describe the amount of pride I have in knowing you will become a great man and I see that I am what molds you, what you do not know is that you are what molds me son. I love you more and more each day and thank god for in trusting me with such a great piece of his work. I know you will do far greater things than I. My only words I have to offer, "always do what's right and you will never regret it". I love you son"
This was my husband's letter to our son!

He colors and can stay mostly in the lines!
He knows his ABC's but doesn't recognize them yet

Day 30

I restarted my challenge On May 1st.
This is after 1 month!
I wasn't the happiest with my results only because I had only lost 2 lbs.
That was until this morning when I took this picture and put it next to my beginning pic!
 WOW! I was actually shocked at the results!
I wanted to see if I had lost inches and after I took my measurements I did my happy dance then level 3 of the Shred.

Here are my current stats.

DAY 1:                                             DAY 30:

Weight 134 pounds                              132
Waist 35"                                             34"
    Hips 38 3/4"                                        33 1/2"
Stomach 33 1/4"                                  32" 
Thigh 22"                                            20"
Chest 35"                                            34"
Bicep 10 1/2"                                     10 3/4
I couldn't be more excited at the results.
So last month I gave up soda, alcohol, fast food, and chocolate.
But still was eating whatever I wanted.
This month I started counting my calories and realized I need to track everything I put into my mouth because wow it adds up! Not just food but my beverages sure do add up!

I have never ever had to track my calories. I've pretty much been able to add in exercise and lost weight.So it's a whole new world for me, I'm not the biggest fan of it but I am a fan of seeing results.

I know what I want my body to look like! And I'm am on a mission to transform into the women I know I can be!

So here's to another 30 days of getting stronger and healthier!

My Mr. Bubeck

My husband is A M A Z I N G

I am taking this opportunity to gush all about my man.

I started my new weekend job 3 weeks ago and have to admit I was a little worried that I'd come home to a destroyed house and have to cook dinner and just try to play catch up.
In fact one fellow mom told me my husband wouldn't last because he'd hate it and then I'd hate it because I'd still have to do everything for the house!

Well let me tell you......HE HAS BLOWN ME AWAY!
Every night that I work I come home to a spotless house (in fact I think it's cleaner than it's ever been) and dinner on the table!
Mind you he has a full time job as well and weekends are supposed to be his day to rest and sleep in but instead he's up and making me breakfast and coffee and sending me off to work with a smile on his face.
He is a fantastic father. And after a year in Blythe not being with his kids daily I think they all 3 needed this time to themselves each weekend.

I was worried not having a day off together, but each evening we make an effort to spend quality (not quantity) time together. And to try and do a date night each week. Which has been so nice.

I feel so blessed to be married to this man.
He knows me needs before I realize them myself.
He lets me be crazy sometimes and doesn't punish me for it.
He forgives me
He cooks for me
He cleans for me
He spoils me
He calms me
He prays for me
He makes me laugh
He makes me feel beautiful
He works hard for me and his children

I mean the list is endless. I love this man!

We have been through so much in the 8 and 1/2 years we've been married.
Last year was hard. Probably the hardest year of my life. But God brought us out of that season in our lives and brought us closer to Him and together as a couple. So in hindsight I am thankful for that storm.

My Mr. Bubeck,
My words seem to fall flat when I try to express my hearts feelings for you.
but I want you to know
I am yours and only yours
You captured my heart so many years ago and have kept it safe and loved ever since.
I am excited to continue our journey hand and hand together as we trust our Lord with our lives and continue to follow His path for us.
Thank you for being our families spiritual leader.
Thank you for loving me.
I am BLESSED to be Mrs. Bubeck
