Second try

I started a post already but I hate it, just drivle…so I’m giving it a second try. To tell you the truth, my post was showing you my favorite stars at the Golden Globes, you know the ones…skinny, shiny hair, perfect lips, va-va-va-voom dresses. Well that post was simmering in my head, I was browsing around and ended up at this site-

Beauty Redefined

And after reading that for a while there’s no way I could blog about the Hollywood babes and put them on MY pedestal. Yes, they are beautiful, but does that even matter to me? It shouldn’t and more importantly, it shouldn’t affect my own view of myself. A friend of mine attended a presentation that was given by the founders of Beauty Redefined–two Utah women who have studied Media and Women’s Studies for years and have made this their cause. That friend posted this site on Facebook and that’s how I found it. I think what they have to say is smart, true, and brave. So go check it out if you want.

On another note, I’m going back to the gym. In December, I eased up because I’ve been having IT band troubles. I decided to stay out of the high-impact classes, skip running and try me some yoga. Well you know what, I hate yoga. It totally felt like a waste of time. Granted, I didn’t really give it a chance but no thanks. I love pilates, so I’ll stick to that. Well, 6 weeks without my usual cardio training and what do I have to show for it? Numero Uno: my leg still hurts No. 2: I have a Christmas muffin-top. So I went back to step this AM and I was so happy!

Emmett is my life right now. He is 2.25 years old. We took him skiing on New Year’s Eve. He actually loved it! We made 4 runs down Little Beav. This was a very important milestone for Pitt because skiing is his life. I think he looks forward to the day that Emmett will ski with him (or out-ski him) like a girl looks forward to her wedding day! Emmett talks non-stop. Everyday he says more and more words that I’ve never heard him say before; for example- breakfast, that’s a big truck, my knee hurts, iPad, song, fort, back hoe, watch this. He makes me smile. He whines, he cries, he wakes up at night, he won’t wear the cute clothes I want him to, he’s stubborn but at the end of the day he goes to bed so easily and I brush my fingers through his soft hair and kiss his warm cheek and there’s nothing he can do wrong. i love him so.

    So glad you wrote that, Lexie and her twin sister and good friends with my sister so we are familiar with their campaign. This bilboard was right around the corner from my house so I would see that sign each day while in Salt Lake. Such a good message!!

    Isn’t this just the truth of being a mom? I love it!
