Oh blogging world, I have missed you.

It feels like forever since I have sat on my hard little kitchen chair and poured out my thoughts, my opinions, my goals or just shared a picture of “life”. I feel a tad scattered as of lately. Being a Mom, A good Partner, FT worker, PT worker, Friend, Sister, Daughter, etc takes a toll on one. I tend to focus all of my energy on that day and that day alone. If I get to far ahead of myself, I get scattered. I have described myself lately as a chicken with her head cut off; literally. Just running around. Insane? Depends on who you ask.

There have been so many nights where I lay in bed unable to sleep thinking of all the writing pieces I would like to share. However, when I wake up in the morning; I forget. And no, of course, I did not get out of my comfy bed snuggled next to my love to jot those silly ideas down. You wouldn’t either, right?

Even while writing this absence apology blog, my child just woke up from her nap. You know what that means? Time to play! Time to feed! Time to snuggle! Time to love! No time for the computer or anything that feeds my soul. Sure, I can apologize for my absence but in all honesty. I have loved every bit of this absence. My life is full. My life is full of love and joy. I have voiced my thoughts to Cam and my close friends. Thankfully, those glorious people bring me down to sane.

I have not forgotten about you. I will never leave you behind blogging land. Its in my blood and in my heart since I started back in 2007. Taking breaks are crucial to my being and once I come back, I feel better and more creative than ever.

Again, please forgive me for not telling you about how wonderful this life has been to me. Its been good; real good. Like so good, I am getting married in 3 days. 3 whole full days. Could be the longest or shortest, again depends on who you ask, days of my life. Thank goodness this is my life. Whew!

(Sorry but I am not sorry about any technical, grammar or spelling errors. Had to get the little princess up from her nap.)

Looking for a last minute valentine idea for a class party?
Check out these amazing heart crayons—so cute and easy! 

Purchase a simple silicone heart baking tray at Joannes, gathered up old and broken crayons (soak them in water to easily peel off the paper), fill the tray with the broken crayon pieces and bake at 250 for 15 minutes! After putting the tray in the freezer to cool for about 10 minutes—you will have made 24 bright and cheery heart crayons!!

Review: P20 Pilates

I don’t make New Year resolutions. I think they are silly. I do however set goals. Daily, Weekly, get the picture.  Since having my daughter in May, I have a few extra pounds that I need to lose. I made a commitment to get in the best shape of my life this year. With that being said, I joined P20 Pilates in Sacramento and have fallen into workout heaven. This place is the best and worst thing to happen to my body.

I joined the 30 day challenge (points per class system) and have been going every day since the 2nd. Who am I? I come home dripping with sweat. Like the ugly kind where it looks like you just got of a shower and smeared mascara all over your face. Some of the classes they offer are Inferno Pilates, TRX, Bikini Butt, Kettle Combat and Abs.

The classes are primarily an hour long and are taught by some pretty amazing teachers ahem, Danny Castillo? MMA fighter? Every one of them make you feel welcome and give you the right amount of push to keep going even when your body says STOP…IMMEDIATELY! I leave there feeling good about my body and my mind. I genuinely focus on the practice and leave the overwhelming to-do list at the door.

Gyms are always popping up around town but I truly feel P20 has what it takes to be here for the long haul and by the size of their classes they may need to get a bigger space in the near future. 

If you live in the Sacramento area and are looking for a new way to get fit. Check out P20 Pilates! They are starting a new 30 day Challenge in February! Do it!
