Boy oh Boy was that so much fun! I am so glad that Vince loves being outside!!

He doesn't care, if he is in the stroller, the hiking backpack, in our arms, sitting on the from porch or in the pool, you name it he loves it!!

For Jacobs escapade next week, he had to get new boots and he was going to go hike and just carry his ruck sack, but I thought it would be fun if we all went and he just rucked Vince. Vince had never been in the little hiking backpack, but he loved it. He couldn't keep his hat on hiring it, but he was lathered in sunscreen and he kept his shades on {have I mentioned he LOVES his sunglasses, like starts to cry when I take them off he loves them so much.}

We hiked for a little over an hour and Vince not once cried. And for Vince that's big! He has been a little extra fussy, last night it was like he had colic all over again. EEEKK! I'm guessing it is the top teeth coming in, or at least I hope!!!

What? We have to go home??

It was so much fun and I wish we would have tried it out sooner!! We even brought him his straw sippie cup with ice water in it and he drank it. Not a lot but it was the first time he has ever had it with ice in it. I don't know why, but it was just too cute!!

Life Update!! So Much Going On!!

If you have been following my blog you know that Jacob has been in the process of changing jobs for over a year and a half. Something we thought would not take much time at all has been one of the slowest processes yet!!

Well he is leaving this weekend for an assessment in Florida! It is where all the currently enlisted men who want to become his job go before they can retrain.  He will only be gone 6 days, then hopefully we will have more answers as to when he will start the big part of the training where I will move back to Tucson. It is a little nerve racking not knowing that it could be the following week he goes to San Antonio or it could be months from now. But first and most importantly he needs to get through next week, he will be challenged mentally and physically for 5 straight days. His to bring list looks like he might be getting into some intense stuff, like a head lamp and bug repellent, umm no thanks!!! This also means I have no idea how often or even at all if I will be able to speak with him. He was appointed the assistant leader, which means he looks good on paper (in person too!!) The leader is stationed at the base where he is heading and he has been corresponding with him.

With how intense and how much is on the line in this training I am asking for your prayers, and thoughts. This is going to be tough on him and if you could pray for his mental and physical strength to make it through. I know a really weird thing to ask for, but he wants this so bad and has wanted it for so long. I have complete faith in and tell him every day, but a few extra thoughts wouldn't hurt either.

Remember when I brought up opening an Etsy shop?? Well I did!! It is called Vincey Roo and it only has one item so far. So no huge grand opening yet, but I plan on adding more things this week. I am really excited! I love sewing and doing this! Currently I am doing more custom orders for friends and on Instagram {MegantheMomma} and I am having a blast and learning so much!! Any Etsy shop owners with any advice please feel free to send them my way!!!

Here is the link to the shop!!

Adorable, right??

This is my shop logo for now

Now as for Vince and I we are doing awesome!! Vince turned 8 months yesterday and its so sad, seems way to close to a year old. He was JUST born, where did my baby go?? Oh yeah, he is crawling through my house!!! I will do his feet prints tomorrow and try to get that blog to you soon!!

Some morning hands and knees

This kid loves his sunglasses!!

Now the not so fun part, I got dry sockets. After doing everything I could to prevent them it happened. And getting those giant holes filled with the medicated gauze hurts so bad, I don't want to go back tomorrow. I don't have them really bad, but I am in some pain. I can't really eat all types of food yet and can't wait for the giant holes to close. They gross me out.

Well thanks for letting my dump my crazy life on you right now.

Fitness Friday!!!!!

Im linking up again with Cait!!

First I had to share this picture I took this morning!! When I woke up at 5:09 {yes I hit snooze} and went to the gym!!

the blessed life

This week has been AWESOME!!!  Jacob had to been talking to some of the trainers at his speed school he goes to about how I want to finish losing my baby weight and get some muscle! One trainer suggested I eat 750 cals a day, 550 from protein and 200 from good carbs from veggies. I have almost followed it every day and down 3.5 pounds. Plus I have been working out a ton, and I can tell I have put on a decent amount of muscle as well! Today is my last full day of it and then tomorrow and Sunday I am going to eat healthy, but also let myself have some treats since come monday I will only be able to eat soft food after my teeth come out!

This week I mostly did CrossFit and ran! Jacob also made me some exercises that totally smoked my arms!!

Next weeks goal is to try to get some work outs in. I know it will be tough considering I don't know how much pain I will be in, but at least going on some walks and a couple gym sessions is a must.

I can't believe how awesome I feel!! I'm totally loving how healthy I am getting and how motivated I still am. I really know I will keep this up and continue of my healthy journey!!!

DIY Easter Basket

I knew I wanted to do something fun and unique for Vincent's Easter basket, I wanted to make him a basket that he can keep for the years to come and maybe even incorporate it into his room decor. With all the embroidering I have been doing, it was for sure going to have his name on it.

So I went thrifting and found a giant basket that was a baby blue. Keeping in mind I want to match with his room, I spray painted it gray. Then with extra fabric from his crib skirt I made the inside. Then embroidered his name on it and wallah!

Can't tell how really big it is until you see him in it! Just wait!!

Then I found this awesome fake grass at Hobby Lobby that I knew would make it look perfect!!

As for gifts we are trying to keep them all pretty much about Jesus, because that's what it is all about. So he has a babies first bible, a cross that says pray that will match his room and a rosary  just like Jacobs first rosary. I also found some egg shaped sidewalk chalk to add in, but what have you momma's put in your babies first Easter baskets? I need some more help! He doesn't eat candy yet so I'm at a loss.

Sunday Randoms

Where to start, where to start!!

This weeks has been bitter sweet, it is Jacob's last week on leave and next week he will be working my least favorite shift which is 3pm-11pm. It is always weird eating dinner alone and trying to make dinner get Vince his dinner, bathed and then put to sleep is kinda tough on my own.  This shift will be nice because I will be able to work out during the day which is my favorite and  I am not going to let all this hard work I have done this month go down the drain. That fat is staying down the drain!!

Yes Jacob is drinking from Vince's sippie cup!!

He loves his sunglasses!!

Mid run photo pop!

Have I told you guys how much I love instagram. Really it is such a fun social networking site, I actually like it above Facebook and Twitter. There are so many awesome people I follow. I just love it! My username is MegantheMomma so go add me, I promise you will love all my pictures.

I finally jumped on the Essie glitter nail polish band wagon and I am in love. I think I might wear it all spring. It is currently on my toes and nails! Oh and even my EOS chapstick.

My wisdom teeth are coming out April 9th and I couldn't be more excited. A little nervous for the down time considering I will have Vince and we are still unsure about when Jacob can get off.
You're jealous right???

Vince sleep this week for a lack of better terms has royally sucked. I can't pin point why it is so bad, but I am so exhausted. He wants to go to bed around 6-6:30 and wakes up at 1:45 and won't go back to sleep until 4. Which means him and I go sleep in the guest bedroom bed until he falls asleep. I feed him and everything and it still takes that long. I don't know what is up. He sounds like he has seasonal allergies and normally is congested and sneezes during this 2 hour fiasco. If it keeps up I will make him and appointment to go in. He also has been eating the strawberry puffs so today we are not giving him any of those to see if maybe it's an intolerance.

We bought a inflatable kiddie pool yesterday and it was a hit!! Almost wasn't but once he got used to it and we brought some bath toys in it he loved it! I plan on doing a big post about it but here is a picture for you!

Love this picture!!! These two melt my heart!!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Look forward to some fun posts this week! Vincent's Easter basket, Vince's new room and the pool!!
