Five on Friday

Today I'm linking up with Darci, Christina, April and Natasha for Five on Friday.

I'm so excited for this weekend. I have lots of friend time planned. Tonight I'm going to dinner with some of my favorites and then I'm trying to plan some time to hang out with one of those favorites' little girl. I think an Aunt Kel dance party will definitely be happening.

I deadlifted 165 lbs last night! GO ME! I started bootcamp with Fusion Fitness at the beginning of February and I can tell I've gotten so much stronger. My arms are looking so toned. Now it's time to get my eating in check. Lake season is right around the corner!

Since I've been working out more I had to step up my workout attire game. I'm obsessed with these 3/4 zip pullovers from Old Navy. I need one in EVERY COLOR!

I earned my Lexus bonus with my second job selling Nerium and I'm hoping to get my rx350 in the next couple of weeks. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would see the money and success that I'm seeing after only 4 months in this business but that's a whole other post in itself.

That's the car I'm getting!!

In case you were wondering yes, that is Justin Timberlake's momma with the blonde curly hair. She sells Nerium with us. Obviously she doesn't need the money she really believes in the product too!

Not only is it friend weekend it's also my daddy's birthday tomorrow! He'll be 63 tomorrow and he definitely doesn't act like it. I'm not sure what the plans are to celebrate but i'm sure it'll involve food at a yummy restaurant in town!!! I'm suggesting bowling too!

I think Christin is probably having a heart attack right now. I've blogged twice in one week and I have two other posts in the works! LOL!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Savannah's 5th Birthday

This precious little angel turned 5 February 17th. We celebrated her birthday the weekend before. It was such a fun day. I can't believe she's five. Time seems like it's flying by the older I get. I still remember the night she was born. I totally skipped an accounting test prep class and eventually dropped that class. I'd say it was definitely worth it. I love this little girl something fierce and would do anything for her. I think I would have to say the feeling is mutual.

KK love her Savannah. 

Here are some pics from the party.

Strike a pose!

Her cute headband from her Lulu.

Five on Friday

Today I'm linking up with Darci, Natasha, Christina and April for this week's edition of Five on Friday. I always read EVERYONE's post so I figured I would participate.

I went to the doctor for my "yearly" check up and had high blood pressure for the second year in a row. I'm talking 140ish/90ish. I will admit that I hadn't eaten anything that morning and had guzzled 3 cups of coffee (my appt. was at 9:30 a.m.) but it still shouldn't have been that high. My doc wants to me to pay more attention to my sodium intake and increase my workouts. I've been doing this for two weeks and have lost around 5lbs now I just need to take my blood pressure. Keep your fingers crossed that it's come down. High blood pressure and heart issues run in my family but I'm determined to try everything so I don't have to be on medicine.

I've embarked on a new adventure/opportunity to help pay off some debt and helps others along the way. It couldn't have come at a better time. It'll require a blog post of its own. If your my Facebook friend you already know what this is. Momma Kim is even embarking on this journey with me! Love 
when the Lord answers prayers.

It's official we're getting the inside of our house painted the week of Thanksgiving. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. It's been a long time coming. Having someone paint your walls isn't cheap folks! We've decided on Revere Pewter for the common areas like the hallways, living room and dining room and then Buxton Blue for the Master Bedroom and a shade lighter for our master bath. They are both Benjamin Moore colors. Next on our list is painting some furniture that was given to me and ordering our new sectional. I've been scouting the Macy's Thanksgiving and Black Friday Sales Ads. Then hanging pictures. I can't wait to show the after pictures and also having fiends over to enjoy it!!! 

This is Revere Pewter

I just want to brag on my husband. I wouldn't be the person I am now without him. He brings out the good in me and has built my confidence up over the past 8 years. He supports me in everything I do with only a "little" bit of skepticism. And he is the best dad to our angel bear Mable. Gosh, I love that man!

It's Friday....that in itself is amazing. We don't have a bunch of plans. My cousins' 3rd birthday party is tomorrow and we might go to dinner with one of my Besties and her "friend" tonight but other than that I plan on cozying up with my new book and enjoying being with my little family!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Weekend Recap

Here's a recap of last weekend. Although it's almost next weekend. Friday night was super low key. Jared and I have found a little hidden gem on Summer Avenue. There is a taco truck at Summer and Mendenhall and it's absolutely delicious...and cheap! All of my East Memphis friends should definitely try it out ASAP.

Saturday ended up being filled with tons of friends and babies. We made the trek up to Tipton County to see one of Jared's Best Friends from high school baby. Ella was an angel an only got fussy when she was hungry or wet. I could've held her ALL day. I also was the first person Jeremy her dad didn't get on to for holding her incorrectly, SCORE! I guess all those years of babysitting finally paid off. 

Already giving the CBF.

While we were hanging out I texted my other friend who had just moved to the country to see how far it was to her house and what she was doing. Well 20 minutes later we were at her house and ended up going out for Mexican for her Birthday with a few other couples and their kiddos. We killed two birds with one stone. I still don't understand why people would move so far away??? I'm definitely a city girl. Hour long drives to work are for the birds. 

Here are some pics from dinner. BTW my friends make the cutest kids which results in the worst case of Baby Fever afterwards!

This is my friend Christi's little boy Jake. He was so much fun!!

Here's Baby Charlie...the Birthday Girl's little boy.

Can you spot the horrible hair in the back ground? I was pretending to take a pic of Brad to capture that amazing tease job. It looked like a bird's nest!

There's Christi and her broke fingers. She broke them "practicing" for the alum vs. active Alpha Gam Flag Football game. #brokefingerdontcare

Such a sweet moment.

Happy Birthday Julie!!!!

Fuzzy Mustache...there were so many inappropriate jokes made about this. He was so proud of his mustache!

Another shot of that amazing stache!

The Ables

Sunday we got up and headed downtown and had breakfast at Ms. Cordelia's then took Mable on a long walk by the river. It was an ABSOLUTELY beautiful day out. I don't know who enjoyed it more us or Mable.

Can you find J and Mable Anne?

My two loves!

Action Shot.

Mable's dream.....tons of sticks and leaves all connected.

I was trying to be "artsy" with our shadows.
