My husband and I are getting ready to close the chapter on the wonderful years spent in this apartment.
This chapter has been filled with new puppies, new traditions, a new washer and dryer!!!!!, new job, old friends, much laughter, and many memories.
I have fully enjoyed this chapter.
But we are getting ready to open a new chapter as we look for a more permanent home.
I can’t wait to start filling the next chapter with small moments and seemingly insignificant days. With new memories, tears and laughter.
There is always a new chapter waiting to be written.
I can’t wait to see what God will write!
#30daysinthelife with @bravecounseling.
Day 30: Tacos. My favorite food. I have been known to have high taco standards. After cleaning the house and yard this weekend, it felt good to leave the house for some delicious tacos. Sometimes I have to do the adulting things before the fun things, and that’s ok. We got the adulting things mostly out of the way so that next weekend can be full Mountains and rivers! Priorities. .
What helps you unwind after a long day or a crazy couple weeks? I feel like my feet hit the ground running in Utah last week and I’m still recovering and swimming through crazy momlife schedules! Not that the swimming ever stops, but you know, totally in “catch up” and “what is this life” mode lately. For me, tacos are basically the way to my soul, and so are borderline skin melting showers. Seriously. So good. Add a few drops of frankincense on my chest for the cherry on top and I am calm and centered enough to think I can get back up and do all of this again tomorrow😆 Thank you tacos, showers, and oils. You the real mvp.
I made the best tacos ever tonight. Thanks @buzzfeedtasty for sharing the @tacosway recipe! I adapted it to fit what I had readily available but the serrano pepper in my guacamole vs a jalapeño was a game changer! And I did melt some monetary jack cheese in between those two corn tortillas.. 😋
Street tacos ... the crispy avocado is my favorite above . Seared tuna is to the left with the purple radish. . Blood orange margarita.. so refreshing. If you go I hope you get Corey as your server. He is so charismatic . #tacos#love#xacotaco#ilovetacos#providence

I was going through my photos and found these. I’ve always been the FAT one or the CHUBBY one and let me tell you, it sucks. I even stopped going out places because of how I looked. I’d start a diet and give up, and then start again and fall off again. But not until January of 2018 did I FINALLY get my shit together and start to put in WORK.
I am no where near where I want to be but I’ll get there, just watch! Progress takes time and work.
It’s supposed to be 100% Nutrition 100% Fitness, but I’m not going to sit here and lie about eating clean these last 6 months because I still have my tacos and burgers and pizza and cake. But ask me how much chicken, sweet potatoes, broccoli, herbalife shakes, BCAA’s, multivitamins, and water I’ve consumed in the last 6 months? It’s called balance. I meal prep and workout. I make time for it. I actually love working out and feel bad when I miss a workout but I know my body needs rest also.
Yes, there is a lot that goes into a healthy lifestyle but COMMITMENT and MODERATION are key! (Or at least to me they are)
Words of encouragement from me to you:
Do YOU for YOU!
A big thank you to my love and friends and family that have pushed me to where I am. I love y’all!
