5 Things: We Welcome You To The Lollipop Guild…

1. So, let me start off by telling y’all that we have not been to the gym in FOREVER! At least 8 or 9 months. Basically since Patrick’s health issues began last August. But since we finally have his heart rhythm under control, his doctors have released him to start working out again. Until now, he was only released to work… and that was it! So, sitting at home during this time period has caused us to really undo all of the hard work that we put in at the gym throughout the years prior. And with all of the added stress… the pounds decided to make themselves at home… on our bodies! The struggle has been REAL my friends. Especially considering that this is what my heart keeps telling me to do…Continue reading

Happy 12th Anniversary #1

Happy 12th Anniversary #1

Happy Anniversary #1 to my BFF! This pic was taken about a year ago, but these fun little mugs speak volumes about our marriage and relationship:
 
A. We both love bacon and eggs
B. We both love coffee and drinking out of matching mugs
C. We would never intentionally break each others hearts… no matter what
D. And just like real bacon and eggs stick to your thighs when you eat them, we are always going to stick together
 
Today marks 12 years that we have been married, and I couldn’t imagine spending like with anyone else. Tue love is all about having fun and enjoying life together. The good and the bad, it’s ALL WORTH IT! <3
 
P.S.: For those of you wondering what I meant by anniversary #1, you can find out all about our story HERE.
Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails. 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track! Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading
