mike and i got up at 6 am this morning to go work out. i have been thinking for weeks that i need to get in a good workout routine so it will be easier to shed the baby pounds after it's born, but i've been feeling nauseous and tired, so it's hard to get motivated when you don't feel your best. but i was inspired by this post ...and figured if this mom with 3 kids can get up early to exercise, i can too! so thanks lauren!

so mike took cooper and henry for their daily walk, then we went to the gym and i walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes and he lifted weights. (he's already been getting a bunch of cardio in because he plays tennis all the time) so by 7:50 this morning, i had eaten breakfast #1, worked out, and was on my way to pick up breakfast #2. (is it wrong to eat a sausage and cheese kolache as a reward for exercising?? i think not)

then i went to wal-mart to pick up a few things...those of you who know me well know that i can't stand wal-mart and try to stay as far away as possible, but at 8 am it wasn't crowded at all and actually kind of nice. or as mike said "all the rednecks are still sleeping off their hangovers that early in the morning." hope that doesn't offend, but it was a pretty funny comment!

on to other subjects, i have been doing some internet shopping (not buying yet) and have found some things i love...

this amy michelle sweet pea diaper bag...isn't it cute and functional?!

and this bertini travel system...saw it while shopping this weekend and it's much cuter in person. love the black and white design. it would be great for a boy or girl.

and i have been searcing for a crib that i love but am having a really hard time finding what i want...well i can find what i want, but refuse to pay $1000 for a baby bed...crazy!
this one is actually affordable and has the look i want but i really want it to be white
and i love th look of this one but it's way too expensive
do you know of any good shops/sites to find a modern crib at a good price?


  1. oh my goodness! mike's comment was so funny i laughed out loud!! hee hee. good for you. i've been walking every night now for 3 whole days! i made the mistake of trying on swimsuits and saw my flabby-cellulite-ridden legs and thought there is no way i'm going to a beach looking like this! so my goal is to walk 5 times a week before we leave. it does help to get up early, but i end up usually walking at night. so much cooler to me. keep up the good work. love the travel system, very chic!

  2. Ok, I probably detest Wal-Mart as much as you and try to avoid it at all costs... BUT check out their Baby Mod cribs online - the Olivia and the Park Lane styles, I think...

  3. Oh, honey...I'm so happy that I motivate someone out there! Ha! I know that it is difficult to get up to exercise, but once I get into a routine, it's a lot easier! Good for you, mama!
