Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Good morning! How’s it going, friends? I hope your day is off to a fabulous start!

It’s time for another Photo Dump, which means I’ll share all sorts of random photos from my iPhone. This bunch is definitely a fun mix. Enjoy!

Our little monkey chowing down on a banana. Look at that intensity! Haha! He loves bananas as much as I do!

Back at Body Pump. Our family recently joined the local YMCA, where they offer Body Pump classes. For the new readers, I used to be obsessed with Body Pump. It was actually what jump-started my weight loss after college and got me in shape for my wedding. I actually loved it so much I used to do it at home in my living room!

“Noodling” at the pool. One of the main reasons we joined the YMCA was for the pool. Quinn and I go to a weekly “Water Babies” class and we randomly pop in during “open swim” to play in the pool, so we love going to the Y.

Waiting for Quinn’s first haircut. That band-aid! Poor guy.

A very expensive basket. I recently saw this basket at Crate & Barrel and wanted to buy it for our firewood, but when I looked at the price ($120), I just couldn’t do it. I know I can find something similar for much cheaper, so I snapped a pic for future reference.

THE bag (aka “Dawn” diaper bag). Oh my gosh… best bag ever. I took this pic to send to my sister-in-law since she’s in the market for one too. Of course, I had all good things to say about it!

A good hair day. I recently started using ACURE Leave-in ConditionerSally Hershberger Glam Waves Texture Spray in my hair while wet and letting it air dry. For someone who has barely wavy hair, it actually gives me some pretty awesome waves without much effort!

Having a blast in Newport. This photo cracks me up. Quinn looks so unhappy, but I assure you he was not. He was actually in an awesome mood, but decided to slump down and act miserable when my father-in-law snapped this photo. Haha!

Goose gang at Southfield during one of my runs. Do geese freak anyone else out? I always think they’re going to attack me. I ended up running on the side of the road to avoid these guys. And a potential attack.

Quinn helping out during our recent Pottery Barn consultation. Remember when I mentioned this a few weeks ago? We signed up for a free consultation and it was so helpful. We definitely have a better idea of what to buy for our home now.

A recent vegetarian dinner. I’m not giving up meat, but I’m definitely trying to cut back to see if it helps with my UC symptoms. I figured I’ve tried every other diet out there, so we’ll see what happens!

My grandma’s porch. She recently had some work done on her house, so my sister sent this photo to my cousins and me along with a joke about the donut holes we may or may not have put inside the walls when it was first built. We were like 10 years old, so I wonder what happened to them after 25 years?

Broken glass from my iced coffee. I’m such a space cadet sometimes. I left my mug of iced coffee on top of my car, so when I stopped at the end of my street to pull out onto the main road, it went flying and broke into a million pieces all over the pavement. I’ve never forgotten my iced coffee on the top of my car, and I rarely ever bring glass with me in the car, but, hey, I guess there’s a first for everything! Oops!

Cinnamon Toast Butter. OMGSOGOOD. I used this in a recent batch of my Mom’s Apple Crisp, so I texted her a photo to tell her how delicious it turned out. If you haven’t made my mom’s apple crisp yet, you’ve gotta try it!

A big can of pumpkin puree. I opened it on Tuesday and don’t want it to go to waste, so please share your favorite pumpkin recipe!
