I'm Here

Hi. It's me, Ashley! I promise I'm still here! :)

I do think every night about posting on here, but there's this little thing called life that has me a tad tied up. Right now, it is full, crazy, fun, and chaotic. Add 4 kids and a husband to the mix, and that pretty much sums up the season I am in. I love every bit of it, but it's rocking my world! Not gonna lie. It's a good season...just a very hard, tiring season.

Okay. Moving on...

Some of my friends got together and hosted a Favorite Things party. It was SO much fun! Quite possibly, one of the funnest events I've ever attended!

So, in keeping with the theme, I am going to post some of my favorite things that I've come across recently.

My friend, Carly, introduced me to this group. Love everything about them. The music. The lyrics. The video. Everything!

I have lost all of my baby weight...although still a little jiggly. Ha! Now, I'm just wanting to keep it off (and, hopefully start toning it all back up one of these days.) So, I came across this dandy little app called MyFitnessPal. You enter everything that you eat and it keeps track of all your calories for the day. It also searches pretty much any food, meal, restaurant, etc. that you can think of. Oh, and it's free! Score!

I am loving all of these articles! I'm sure you've seen some of them floating around facebook and/or twitter. If you get a chance, you should check them out, too.

So, back to the weight loss thing. These are some of my new favorite go-to snacks.

Weight Watchers Double Chocolate Muffins

Clif Bars

In LOVE with these...

Lets start exercising together. WE can run/walk the loop. Come on...come on. I need some accountability.

Love the favorite thing party Idea. I had texted Melissa Parsons about it awhile back and some girls in the hood want to do it. Want to do it too?
