Accomplished

That is how I am feeling today, accomplished.

Why you ask?

Well, several reasons, but the main one for today is, I see muscles again! Tonight, while shaving my legs, I noticed that my calf muscles are looking good.

Over the last few months I have been trying my best not to miss the Rope 1 class at Suspend and I feel that it is paying off and not just because of my kick-ass calves muscles but because I am actually seeing progress in what I am doing. I am getting stronger and better. I am remembering how to do things from week to week. I am not feeling like the new kid anymore. It’s an awesome feeling to know you can accomplish something that you have been working hard on.

So today I am feeling accomplished and I love that feeling.

It’s Birthday Week

It’s Birthday Week

This is from a few years ago, but still a fun birthday party.

I love my birthday. Always have and always will. In my family a birthday is a BIG deal. It is like congrats you made it another year, we need to celebrate. My mom makes us our favorite meal including dessert, and the whole family gathers and enjoys. The best part? You get out of kitchen duty for the night (trust me that is big in my family).

Over the last few years I have been camping with the #besttroopever on my birthday and it was a lot of fun, but this year with it being the in the middle of the week I am home and have a fun filled week planned that I am going to try and capture in photos.

My husband and my birthdays are 3 days apart so we try and celebrate together, just us with a nice dinner out and some good ole conversation. This is a nice treat for us with our busy lives.

Overall, I am super excited for what is to come out of this week and excited to be turning another year older tomorrow.

What is your favorite birthday tradition?

Slacker

Yes, I am a blog slacker. No matter how hard I try, I still slack, but I am trying and will keep trying. I have started a calendar to help, well, maybe it will help.

About two years ago and I got to talking to a friend of mine about doing a YouTube video based on us cooking with and drinking bourbon. Well the talk became a reality and we recorded our first episode of C-Squarded and we had a blast doing it.

My wonderful husband set up our kitchen like a light studio with lights and a few cameras, and all kinds of nifty other stuff.  He is also the head producer, camera person, and editor. I am so excited about this project and I cannot wait to share it with you all.

Thanks is all for this wonderful Monday.
