Birthday Post

As I turn another year older today, I wanted to reflect on my past year. A lot has changed within these 365 days. 25 was a pretty defining year in my life. I fell in love, met amazing new friends, traveled, changed jobs, bought a house, grew my fitness training, and started this website!


I had an amazing relationship and lost it, but have found a new love who is even better. I truly believe that God has a hand in everything. While I might not know his master plan, he always brings exactly what I need into my life.


I met so many new friends through Kayla Itsines’ BBG Community. These girls started as fitness motivation but have turned out to be confidants and lifelong friends.


Since my last birthday, I have traveled to Phoenix, Nashville, Sedona, Columbus, Oahu, Maui, San Francisco, Yosemite and Denver.


Though I am still teaching at my same school, I have changed positions. I am so excited for this new change.


Well if you’ve been following my blog, you already know a ton about this!


I have completed BBG numerous times and even began lifting! For a girl who had never been to the gym, I am so proud of all the strides that I have made.

Looking back on this year, it is amazing how much has changed. I have met and surpassed so many goals. It’s definitely looking like 26 is going to be the best one yet!


Before & After

Here are a few before & after images of my new home! The house I bought was a foreclosure, and the previous residents decided to leave the place a disaster. I have officially owned the home for about two months, and I have made a lot of improvements. I can’t wait to share them all with you. These are just a few teasers!

Easy Window DIY

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not crafty or handy, but this renovation has been pushing me to new limits. When updating my bathroom, I had a new window installed. The only problem was that all the tinted windows were out of stock! So I took to the aisles of the hardware store to find a solution. I stumbled upon this spray paint which claimed to give windows a frosted look. It was only $4, so I figured that I’d try it. I just followed the directions on the can, and it turned out amazing! Now no peeping Tom’s in my shower.
