He is so beautiful. There are no words.

I am honestly blessed I get to work such a wonderful event every year. I love getting to show my support for Autism Awareness and Social Inclusion surrounded my hundreds of artists who feel passionate about the same cause. Excited to see a lot of friends I have made over the years that continue to play at this event. Going to have to work my little booty off again, but at least this year I won’t be big pregnant! Ella won’t be able to make it this year but the guys are all really excited to meet the newwest member of the Yes I Can Family! Time to make a YIC onsie for the little dude!!

What a smart little buggy she is!! She loves to learn and that is such an amazing gift. We are practicing what it will be like when she starts school this Fall!

I am so blessed to have children that adore one another! My heart explodes whenever I hear Fynn shout “Ella!” Whenever he sees her. What an amazing big sister she is, constantly helping him learn. She is always concerned for his well being. He chases her around eager to participate in every activity she is involved in. I am so happy we made the decision to have two. I can’t imagine their life without one another.

So much to do!!!

Throwing a 50 guest Easter celebration on Saturday and there is so much prepping, scrubbing, cleaning and decorating to do! I am making two hams and a turkey and that alone means I will be waking up at 4am the day of. Not to mention appetizers, chocolate covered strawberries and fruit bouquets. Friday I am making two cheese cakes and a pineapple upside down cake. Oi vay!

I have been working really hard to practice healthy eating/living. I want to do anything I can to improve my health and be as fit as possible. Originally I was working hard using the Brazil Butt Lift DVDs but was unaware how they were effecting my spinal fracture. When my doctor evaluated my bones and nerve flexibility he sent me to physical therapy where I learned that although my abdominal muscles were in good condition my obliques were practically non-existent because I had been compensating for my back. Just doing simple exercises to improve core strength and a bit of a modified yoga to improve my circulation have done wonders for my day to day life. Cutting out all carbs that aren’t whole grain or complex carbs paired with eating a high protein/low sugar diet for my hypoglycemia has put me back into my wedding day size! In only a couple weeks I watch my body shed the last two waist inches and last hip inch to put me back where I am comfortable. I haven’t felt this comfortable with my figure in years! 

I think we all have someone from our past that has never let go. That you have pushed away a thousand times and stood there waiting with open arms when you returned. Luckily Dean and Ryan have known one another years longer before I had met either of them. I love that Ryan understands my friendship, that although Dean and I had an on again off again past… We were more of two lonely souls clinging to any sign of love we could find. And I feel blessed because Dean has truly talked me through some of my darkest times. Our friendship has always felt like an adventure one with twists and turns and magic. Maybe its because we are both chemically imbalanced, or because we used to write messages strictly in poems. There were times where our misery thrived on the others but then there were times we would fight til the end for the others happiness. We have always turned to one another in our lowest times knowing we never have to be ashamed. Everyone deserves a friendship like that.

My husband has a thing for dressing the children. Fynn’s skatepark attire vs Ella’s @ 7 months.

I love when he takes them to the skatepark. He goes into super proud dad mode and has to promptly show off how amazing, brilliant and beautiful his children are to all the guys. He always rides better when Ella cheers him on and this last time Fynn shouted “DADA!” Every time he rode by.

Because my husband is so rough with his hands, he has the ability to break even his tungsten carbon fiber inlay ring. I decided he is getting a new one for our Wedding Anniversary in July. Excited for his new ring to come. Had to call the vender because they cannot be regularly ordered in his size so it will take two months to arrive. Excited because I caught him trying it on when we got my ring for my birthday.
