Changes, Changes, Changes.

Hey there! Wow, looking back on this blog made me laugh so much. My life has changed 100% since I last posted on here…100%. You can read specifics in the “About” section, but I am now married, a mother of twin boys, and part-owner (haha) of a new home in Georgia! My life is a whirlwind. I am just now getting settled enough to sit back, breathe, and take it all in. This blog is mostly for myself, but I am sharing it with others who might want to see how we are doing down here in good old Georgia. It will probably bore the hell out of most, but there will be a few who might miss seeing the boys on facebook everyday! So…This blog will be FULL of baby talk/pictures/updates, food pictures, random pictures of things that make me happy, and it’s mostly a place for me to ramble about everyday life. If you are into this sort of thing, then read and enjoy 😉

First off…the mail just came which means my eBay package is here!!! All of this for $14…yesss

20120908-142005.jpg so excited to use it. It’s a pretty dreary day here today so I’ll just add a few pictures from yesterday and really start blogging tomorrow…see you then!



Fat Friday: pizza and ice cream for all! Well not ALL…some of us have to deal with pureed fruit. But the tasty kind at least…happy 7 months boys!



Best feeling in the world…if you don’t have kids, I suggest you do soon 😉



John cooling off after PUSH-mowing the 1 acre backyard! Bless him.


Scored some great deals at Kohls…the jeans were only $8!!!


Hiney pinches…becoming strangely normal to see around here lately.

Feeling good feeling great, feeling great feeling good…how are you?


Good afternoon!

It has been a few days since my “Back to Brianne” post and I decided it was time to sit down and fill everyone in on whats been going on in my life…absolutely nothing! haha. Only kidding…kind of. First off, breakfast today:

  • 6oz cup of Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 6 chopped walnut halves

I didn’t take a picture of the kix I added to this cup because I was too busy devouring the entire box to even think of it. No joke, an entire box of Kix in less than 12 hour…oops! Needless to say, after eating all of that sugar I was full of quick-fix energy and went for a walk. Today is pretty overcast here but the temperature is much cooler than it has been lately so I decided to take advantage of that. I took my normal 4 mile route and I felt great afterwards. Sometimes just getting outside and enjoying the weather is enough to completely reenergize you and also serves as a great mood booster 😉

Speaking of lovely weather…The other day I met my friend Brian in the city for a day of fun. I didn’t know what was on the to-do list so I just trusted him to know what I’d enjoy and it ended up being the perfect day. First he took me to Starbucks, then to see this guy:

I was sooo tempted to bust out my moonwalk, but fortunately I did not.

Next we went to Central Park! This was my first time going there and it was gorgeous. We walked around aimlessly for 2 hours and enjoyed the sights and all of the talented people there (competitive skaters, violinists, jugglers…) and then we made it to the main event: rowing in Central Park!

This was so much fun and we ended up staying on the water for around 40 minutes. We had a hard time steering at first but once we got the hang of it, everything was great. We floated around and shared a bag of sweet potato chips and finished our Starbucks drinks. Once off the water, we walked around a little more. And then decided it was time for a real meal. We hopped in a cab to the village and used my iphone to pick out which Sushi place to try…dinner was DELICIOUS but unfortunately I have no pictures because Brian said not to embarrass him in public haha. We shared edamame and seaweed salad for our appetizers, and he chose the Chef’s Sushi dinner while I chose a California roll and a tuna roll…so original….NOT. It was a really fun day and honestly, the highlight of my week. Nothing else to report and unfortunately no other pictures were taken.

It feels good to be in touch with you guys again, so happy to be back to normal. Talk to you after dinner!

Looking Forward

It is such a beautiful day today. Sunny, 80 degrees, not too humid… I’m pretty sure you know what that means: Brianne is a happy girl! I knew immediately when I woke up that I wanted to go for a long walk to start the day off right. I went downstairs and ate Peanut butter straight out of the jar, oops. I also had a 7-grain deli flat and my morning cup of coffee.

"top grad" mug that my grandma got me 🙂

I did not get much sleep last night and had a serious case of puff-eyes so I spent the next hour doing this:

Icing puffy eyes is sexy.

and watching this:

Love this show

Since the weather today looked like this: I decided it was time to hit the pavement. I ended up going on an 80 minute walk with a little help from . It was a really great walk and it left me feeling very refreshed. I noticed that I walk with my eyes directed towards the pavement today. When I realized that I do this, I immediately looked up and straight ahead and guess what? It actually improved my walk! I felt like I was breathing better, my posture was obviously better, and it allowed me to focus on my beautiful surroundings. I think that looking forward is a good title for this post not only because of the change it added to my walk, but because that is how we should all face our daily lives. Keeping your head up, focusing on what is ahead of you, and walking with pride are all very important when facing life’s challenges. Ok, enough serious stuff…when I got home I chugged a glass of plain iced tea (no sugar) and ate a ton of watermelon. I looked down and noticed my hands were SO SWOLLEN!

"Man Hands"

Note to self: get a manicure today.

Ok, now it’s time to go swimming in the backyard. Not too much longer til we close the pool for Fall! Talk to you lovies soon.
