share your secrets....

I'm wondering what your secrets are.
Your secrets for potty training that is.
How does that sound to all you non-potty training people? ha!
I have not started potty training Cullen and actually do not plan to until the Fall.
We have waited and waited for Summer to arrive.
It's been cold, rainy, snowy, just plain gross here pretty much the past 7/8 months.
We are going to be spending the next 3 months outside.
That is if it warms up.
The rain and clouds have been here the past 5 days and will be here the rest of the week.
As soon as it's sunny and warm the last thing from my mind will be the stress on Cullen and I of potty training.
We are going to enjoy SUMMER to the fullest of our ability!!
We will be living at the pool and outside any and every day that we can.
That doesn't mean I'm not trying to plan ahead.
I would love to know any tips and tricks that any of you have to offer.
What worked for you?
I know nothing about potty training.
I received two big boxes from Earth's Best last week!
One was full of wipes.
One was full of training pants/diapers! EEEK!!
At least we are stocked up!

These pics got the best of me, on my computer they show up facing correctly and on blogger they don't. I gave up.  I'm sure you can tell that I received at least one months supply of wipes and training diapers!!
Here is a little bit of info from Earth's Best for you...
Did you know that a newborn urinates as many as 20 times a day?
A newborn’s diaper will need to be changed every 2-3 hours for the first few months?
The average baby will need at least 5,000 diapers changes before she is potty trained?

100 miles...

Well, it happened...
I am human.
In the past 2-3 weeks I have managed to stray off my workout track.
I've slacked.
Eaten pretty much whatever I wanted.
Failed all around on what I had been working on.
I miss feeling good about myself.
I miss working out daily.
I miss eating healthy.
I miss the results.
Tomorrow is Monday.
A fresh start to a new week.
In my mind a fresh start to a new outlook.
A get back on track mindset has taken over again.
I made a chart last night, it took forever.
It was a wild and crazy Saturday night for me ;)
It was needed.
I NEED this.
I need to have goals.
Something to work towards.
This is what I came up with...
100 miles in 30 days
I am literally so excited to get back on track!
I gained weight and lost the muscle I worked so hard for.
Getting off track for a few weeks was not a good idea.
I have my before pics taken.
I am ready to rock n roll,
It is a holiday weekend.
On that note, I am very thankful for all who have served and do serve!
No excuse for me not to work out.
They worked and sacrificed for me.
I'm off to RUN, RUN, RUN!
p.s. I challenge you all to do this! 
I've challenged my friend Jamie!!
She wants it, we are all in this together!!! :) 
Texting you...probably right now, lady!

Hazel and Olive...

The ever so sweet Taylor, shop owner of Hazel and Olive sent me this adorable top...

I LOVE that this top is so long!
It's soft and lightweight and perfect for Spring/Summer!! :)
A little about Hazel and Olive...
Hazel and Olive was a dream that started when I was 7 years old. My great grandmother Hazel Olive was a fashionista, always dressed and accessorized perfectly. Not only was she one of my favorite people but also my inspiration. After getting my degree in fashion merchandising and design and working in the fashion industry for over 11 years I decided to branch out on my own and make my dream a reality.

I am dedicated to providing the best prices and customer service you can find! Thank ya'll so much for making this dream of mine a reality!
You can find Hazel and Olive on Facebook HERE
Hazel and Olive has an awesome following and tons of happy customers!
Not to mention, the prices are amazing!
Hazel and Olive always has free shipping in the U.S. and ALL the clothes, shoes and accessories are ADORABLE!!!!
 You really can't go wrong and I bet you find more than 10 things you want ;)
Shop quick, a lot of the items sell out!
