First Trimester Outfits

Here are some of my favorite outfits I made during my first trimester.  This time around my belly really popped early!  That uterus is all stretched out :) I wore some maternity tops, but mostly flowy non-maternity tops.  I wore my bigger jeans with hair ties holding them closed and a belly band I bought on Amazon.

I have had a lot of fun coming up with creative outfits using Dressing Your Truth.  It's always hard gaining a bunch of weight and feeling crappy, but dressing in colors and styles that really work for your energy type is amazing.  I feel so much more confident this time around.  I can stay true to myself even though another person is taking over my body :)

I was pretty nauseous so I ate whatever sounded good all the time.  The only thing that helped me feel better was eating constantly and preggy pop drops.  I was also really tired so I cut back on my workouts.

The Boys in August

The boys love going to Trader Joe's and pushing the mini shopping cart around.  It's on the other side of town so we don't get over there very often, but it is definitely something they look forward to :)






Quentin kept coming downstairs after he was supposed to be asleep in bed and instead of going back to bed as we asked him to, he fell asleep on the stairs.  I didn't know he was there and it scared me :)


They opened a new frozen yogurt place and gave out lots of coupons for free yogurt.  The boys had lots of fun eating and most of the time sharing a cup.



Our friends invited us over for s'mores.  The boys had never eaten one before and they were much more into eating just a roasted marshmallow than the whole s'more.  



This is my favorite picture of August :) We took Wyatt to get frozen yogurt after we dropped off Quentin at the bus stop (shhhh! don't tell him!) and he made sure he got every last drop of that yogurt!


Here is a video of the boys listening to the baby's heart beat at one of our appointments :)

Quentin's First Day of Pre-K

There is one pre-school here that is public and is really great, but depending on funding the amount of students is limited.  Luckily this year they let in a lot more kids and Quentin was one of the lucky ones!  Albert took some pictures of the boys on August 17 (we couldn't take pictures of just Quentin because these boys are inseparable).  

He was so excited to ride the bus!  It was pretty much the only thing he talked about for the first month of school.  We would ask him what he was doing at school and how he liked it and he could only talk about what buildings and roads they passed on the way to and from the park we dropped him off at.  He gets to ride the bus with his good friend Ike from church and a friend in his class Javon.

His teachers are Miss Aubrey and Miss Nicole and they are really sweet.  He learns all kinds of new songs and new things all the time.  Quentin is sad when he doesn't get to go to school, which is awesome. Wyatt is always excited when Quentin comes home from school.

We're having a baby!

We found out that we were having baby #3 on June 29th!  We texted all our family members, but kept it under wraps until we confirmed it with an ultrasound.




These pictures are from our 9 week ultrasound that was done July 29th where we saw the little arms and legs moving around and heard a strong heart beat!

The baby is due Feb 27th, 6 days after Quentin's birthday and a month before Wyatt's! Plus it's a leap year so he/she could be born Feb 29th.  We're really excited :)

Beachbody Summit 2015 // July 18

On the morning of Saturday, July 18 we woke up crazy early to check out the superworkout on Broadway.  We snuck up to the front and shimmied our way in :)  There were thousands of people there and we were in the front!


I took these pictures of the celebrity trainers with my phone. We were THAT close :)


I'm wore my new PiYo shirt I bought at the Core.


We went to our workshops were Beachbody coaches gave us tips on being better coaches and people :)



Here are pictures from our general session keynote speaker Dewitt Jones.  He was a photographer for National Geographic.  Honestly I was pretty tired and had a hard time keeping my eyes open during his talk.  Jenelle Summers also talked about social media.


We went to dinner at a Blues place.  I was pretty tired of fried food and BBQ at this point, but the music was good.

Here are some of team members :)



After dinner we dropped by the end of the celebration.  The best part were the fireworks!

Beachbody Summit 2015 // July 17

I missed my Cize workout, but I did enjoy the workshops and general session on July 17th.  There were all sorts of people there.  All ages, all sizes.  Mostly white women, but there were men and various races.  There were people with babies and people who smoke (which was confusing, but we're all working on things).


Here's Chalene Johnson at the general session.  It was great to see her live after doing all her workouts and listening to her podcast :)


Here's some of the team after our workshops.

Loren, Jillian, me, Shayla, Elena, Katharine, and Janice

That evening we went to Maragitaville for dinner as a team :)


Back: Jillian, Loren, Stephanie's hubby, Janice, Shayla, & me

Beachbody Summit 2015 // July 16

July 15-20, 2015 I went to Nashville, TN for the Beachbody Summit! My parents were gracious enough to come down to New Mexico to watch my boys while Albert was at work :)  It was the first time I had been away from my kids and hubby since I went to Jordan in July 2010.

On Thursday, July 16 in the morning we went to Melissa McAllister's suite to meet her.  She is a top coach and was in the PiYo at home videos.  She's also my coach's coach so we're sort of on her team.  She's the one with long brown hair in peach in the front.


Thursday afternoon I was able to go to a live PiYo workout with Chalene Johnson and some teammates.  



 I also met up with my old roommate Courtney who is also a Beachbody coach.


We went to the Opening Ceremony on Thursday evening.  Here is a picture with my teammate Katharine. 


We ditched out early and spent the rest of the night at the Core, which is the Beachbody store.  I bought a Cize hat, PiYo shirt, Fixate recipe book, and the Cize program and then waited for my teammates and ride forever.  We were all so tired I didn't get to go to my live Cize workout I was scheduled for the next day.  


I did get to see Tony Horton outside the Core :)

Laundry Room Remodel

We've been planning on remodeling our laundry room since we moved in, but finally got around to doing it.

Here are a couple pics of what it looked like when we moved in:



We painted it and added the washer and dryer when we moved in, but I really wanted to install cabinets, a drying rack, and a counter.

Albert made the drying rack by hand.  He used a kayak hoist so it will stop easily.  It has been really nice!



We filled up the cupboards with all the cleaning products I bought couponing.  Before I had them on the floor or in the pantry and it's so nice to have them put away.  Albert installed the cupboard by himself and I helped him hold it up :)


Albert spent a lot of time working on the countertop.  He even made a trap door where you can remove the door and get in to turn off the water.


Albert bought the inside of this cool pull out cabinet, but made the front of it.  I love how much storage there is!


Here is the new light we installed before we put up the drying rack.  I love having a pretty, sparkley light fixture in the laundry room :)   It's now one of the nicest rooms in the house!

Independence Day!

Albert had to work in the morning of the 4th of July and Quentin was feeling terrible so we missed the ward breakfast and parade.  We did light fireworks in the evening so that was fun!

National Museum of Nuclear Science & History

The boys loved seeing the planes at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History on June 26th.  Love that we get to go for free :)
