Getting in Shape


Hey y’all! I had a lot of questions earlier this week about what I am doing to get in shape, so here it goes! I am not a hardcore dieter or workout fanatic, but I like to go at a steady pace and still enjoy myself with food and fun!

When Crockin’ Girls first started up my baby girl was just over three months old. Between carrying around some of my baby weight and the craziness of the Crockin’ whirlwind we were in, I couldn’t even think about taking time for myself to get back in shape! This past September when Stella was about 16 months old, I was finally ready to get back into my groove! Here are some of the changes I have made:

It was my husband’s family’s Thanksgiving this year. We alternate holidays between families. It is just easier and we can really enjoy the family we are with during that specific holiday. We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving. Kris has 3 siblings and we were very fortunate to be able to all be together this Thanksgiving. We traveled on Tuesday and pulled right into Rosa’s mexican restaurant, my absolute favorite. The kids and I always split the chicken fajita plate, chips and queso, and definitely have to have a so papilla. Licking my lips as I type!

Sweet Berry Farm Family Fun


¬†On Saturday we headed out to Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls, TX. It is a family farm with many activities for all. We had such a wonderful day. We invited our good friends the Gerstenberger’s. Gage and Jayden have been besties since about 20 months old. They met at a home daycare that I took Gage to on the days I taught dance lessons. Now they are both in school, and going to different schools so their time together is limited, but we make it a point to get together or have Jayden over to spend the night at least once a month.
Anyway, back to the farm … I haven’t had such a peaceful day in a long time as I had last Saturday. We laughed and laughed. The best part of it all is that my kids were happy and we weren’t in a rush to get anywhere. On these leisurely days, we are reminded how hectic our lives can be and it was a much needed day of rejuvenating.
