Fall Festivities

This past weekend was a crazy weekend!

Travis and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary at Exile Brewery Co. in Des Moines. The food and beer were delish!

We celebrated my birthday! It was the perfect fall day (one of the reasons why I love fall so much).

The day started out with bloody mary’s with this fella (my dad).

A wonderful birthday cake baked and assembled by my hubby.

Then watching some Nebraska football!

Amelia was also baptized!

It was kind of neat that almost exactly 4 years ago we were getting married in the same church that our daughter was being baptized. Look how much our family has grown since October 2010?!?

Afterwards we celebrated! And what better way to celebrate then with food!

I thought this was the perfect theme! Very fall-ish AND easy to throw together after the baptism.

Cache Bake Shoppe made the baptism cake. We have fallen in love with this bakery, since they made Monte’s baptism cake. They have made several cakes for us since then and they did an awesome job once again! I highly recommend them!

Monday we crashed …

We had such an amazing weekend! We are so thankful to all our family and friends who came and celebrated ; and those who did not make it but sent gifts and their well wishes. Also, to everyone who cooked and helped put everything together. We are very blessed!

I’m Back!

I’m back!!

Where have I been for the past, ALMOST, year?!?

Growing this precious angel …

Yes, Amelia Don was born August 1st and since her conception and arrival, my world has been turned upside down (for the good)!

I had some serious morning sickness while pregnant with Amelia, that is why my blogging stopped. I had every intention to blog about my pregnancy and all the fun things I ate, activities I did, prepping for her arrival, etc. BUT growing this little girl took a lot out of me, especially with a 2 year old, BIG BROTHER running around!

Since this event happened I have quit my job (oh my gosh … scariest thing ever), started a business (also pretty scary), and decided to stay home with my ¬†beautiful children (am I insane?!)

I am nervous about all of the above, but so excited about this new chapter in our lives. We have a wonderful support system, so I know everything will be okay!

Now that I am not “working” I hope to have more time to blog. I probably will not post near as frequently as before. I will be easing my way back into it.

I hope to share my journey staying at home with my two children, share information about my business, my health and fitness journey (body after baby two!), more events and activities to do in the Des Moines area and so much more!

I am so happy to be back!
