THE GOOD LIFE BLOG

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with the lovely ladies of The Good LifeCarolina CharmA. Liz Adventures, and Hello Happiness for everybody's favorite link up, 5 on Friday! You should join in on the fun!

 {one} Every time a preview for Saving Mr. Banks comes on I get so excited....and I remind my husband how much I want to see it. I hope he gets the hint because it looks SO good! I LOVE Mary Poppins so I'm super intrigued!

 {two} This little rain boot wearing turkey is in the process of getting four new teeth. So yeah, that's been fun.

{three} I decided to display the Christmas cards we receive by stringing them up with twine and cute clothes pins above the doorway between our living room and dining room. It was perfect. Well....at least it was for the one day it was up. One side fell down...and is still down. And thanks to this stellar iphone pic, you can see where it lives now....and I'm okay with it. Hudson is obsessed with Christmas cards and likes it better this way.

{four} Thank you to everyone who linked up for the Holly Jolly Pajama party. There were SO many adorable kiddos in Christmas jammies! If you missed out on the fun, there is still time to join...the link up will be available until after Christmas here. I'm still working on visiting the last few entries and leaving some love!


{five} Several people have asked what I've done to help loose the baby weight...and my answer is always the same: breastfeeding + sensible diet + exercise. My husband and I had been going to the gym but it just got harder and harder to find time to go. Getting a baby sitter was a hassle and sending Hudson to the gym daycare after being in regular daycare all day was not an option. This past month I've been participating in The Workout Mama's bootcamp and oh my word, it is all kinds of awesome! Every Sunday, Tamara emails out the routines for that week...each one is different so you never get bored! She always includes a full length video workout and links to mini videos of each exercise, so you can be sure you are doing everything correctly. All of the routines are such an amazing workout but at the same time really easy to follow along with. I was nervous about it at first but once I got going it was so fun! But hard too....the good kind of hard. Afterwards I always feel like I got such a good workout...and having Tamara there to virtually coach you is invaluable! She has helped me whip my post-baby booty into shape! The best part is, I could do all of my workouts from home while Hudson was sleeping. Tamara has so many great resources on her blog to help you get in shape AND is offering a free Christmas workout which you better believe I will be participating in! 

Happy Friday!

  1. Aw, Sawyer has those jammies too. They are the cutest. I'm going to be so sad when the season's over and we have to put all the xmas PJs away.

    Also, your workout link--I need to try. I'm just slacking on getting to the gym and that needs to change!

  4. Teeth...they are never fun! I hope they come through quickly! Cam always gets his in clusters, too, which SUCKS while it's happening but then I'm glad that we have a little break before the net cluster comes in. :) Now we are waiting on the 2 year molars...I hear they are twice as fun. ;)

    I hope you have a great weekend!! xo

  5. I love Mary Poppins too, and would love to go see that movie:) Caleb hasn't gotten any teeth yet, but I can just imagine how fun it will be when that starts...NOT. Poor little Hudson, getting 4 at once! (And poor Mommy, too!)

    Hope you have a good weekend, sweet friend!

  12. I can not wait to see that movie! I'm also waiting on my husband to make plans for a date night so we can see it! I had a similar display for our cards last year, but Owen just loved ripping them off the twine and playing with the clothespins. This year I broke out our Christmas card holder!

  17. Ugh, teething. Not fun...for anybody. But my goodness, could he be any cuter in those boots?! I've 'heard' about her workouts before but have always wondered about them. I'll certainly have to check her out! Happy weekend!
