Christian, wife, mom, baker, and aspiring figure competitor. I'm married to my best friend and we have three kids together; two girls, ages 7 and 5, and a son who turned 1 in June. You'll find personal posts, selfies, flexies, workout logs, and the occasional reblog.


Weaning problems- my left boob is fine, my right one feels like it’s about to pop. I’ve never gone this long without nursing or pumping. This will be good for us since I’ve been working on weaning for a couple weeks but damn, it’s uncomfortable!
I definitely won’t complain if Liam just wants to nurse all night tomorrow.

My day in pictures-
hellolittlebeastling and I picked smasheton up and went out to this awesome pizza place for lunch! Seriously, so good!
It was awe-inspiring watching Smash smash a pizza and it was so much fun being around her and her energy. She just hums with it! Definitely did not feel like we’d just met.
After lunch we did some window shopping and not pictured (there’s a video floating around on ig and fb of it) I carried Smash down the stairs because her knees and hip were a tad sore from her 1/2 marathon yesterday. I offered and she graciously accepted. A couple hours later they dropped me off at the Bart and I took it to go meet Suzanne!! She met me at the station and we went and had dinner and it was like meeting an old friend. You spend all this time getting to know people online and then meeting them face to face and it’s not awkward at all. I love it!
After dinner we walked around for an hour just talking and then took the Bart to our respective stops. It was a fabulous day and I’m so thankful I got to meet these two lovely ladies, and I’m incredibly thankful for Christina for her hospitality. You couldn’t ask for a better friend or hostess!
Tomorrow I’ll be renting a car for a few hours and meeting up with Angie, and possibly Justin but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. Angie is gonna attempt to teach me the oly lifts so cross your fingers and say a little prayer for me! My flight leaves at 5:30 and I’ll be arriving back into Spokane at 9:30. I am excited for what tomorrow holds in regards to meeting people but I’m also eager to be back home with my family. I’ve been bragging on them and it makes me miss them that much more.
I didn’t take as many pics as planned because I was just enjoying the company so these will have to do. :)

I’ve had an awesome day and now I need to go shower but I’m really tired and just want to sleep.

Christina’s guest bed is so comfortable I didn’t want to get up this morning.
A tour of T9 headquarters and getting to finish my book was worth dragging my butt up though :)
She’s finishing up a meeting and then we’re going to pick Smash up!!!
Be prepared for selfies galore!

Sometimes I really just wanna be sarcastic but I’m worried people will think I’m an ass when in reality it means I like you enough to tease you.

I skyped with Ror tonight and Liam kept giving me kisses and it was the greatest thing ever!!!

My day so far!

Saying bye to the family was hard and I almost cried but then Liam refused to give me a hug and kept wanting me to put him down, and that made me feel better. :)

Flight landed in Utah and since I hadn’t eaten anything today of course my first stop was going to be CHOCOLATE!!! You can’t beat dark chocolate sea salt caramels. You really can’t.
Had SmashBurger for lunch since I’ve never had it before. Pretty good! It’s hard to go wrong with a club burger. Bacon and avocado, yum!
Now I’m just sitting at my gate waiting to board the plane. I’m almost finished with the book I brought so I’m thankful I snagged Rory’s kindle to bring along as well.
In just a couple hours I’ll be in San Francisco with CHRISTINA and then watch out world!!! :D

Anonymous asked
Do you not have a good relationship with your parents?

Not really :(
Long story short, they’re too busy for me and my family. They might say otherwise but their actions say just that.

My sisters and I decided we needed to use up moms Mother’s Day gift since it’s freaking October already. Made plans for this Wednesday. Mom sees my fb status about leaving for Cali tomorrow and then proceeds to text my youngest sister telling her that I wouldn’t be there Wednesday.
Really mom? You couldn’t just text ME asking if I was gonna be there, you had to go to one of the other girls and have her call me all worried? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since she hasn’t answered or returned any of my calls since July.


In 24 hours I’ll be at the airport picking up Diana.



I was tagged by a couple people to post 6 selfies I felt beautiful in.

I was tagged by going-my-way to share 10 facts about myself

1. I have 2 middle names, Marie-Louise. (I stole your first one because I have it in common and it was cool!)

2. I used to hate drinking water and would only drink like 1 glass a day. Now I have to have at least 100oz or I feel dehydrated and even then sometimes I still do.

3. I can roll my r’s

4. I’ve got a ridiculous memory. I can remember the most trivial things people tell me but if it’s important I can forget it in seconds.

5. I have a thing for voices. A persons voice matters more to me than their looks.

6. I’ve always wanted to shoot a rifle but am scared of the recoil so I’ve never shot anything bigger than a BB gun.

7.  I haven’t had a full nights sleep in over 2 years.

8. I used to tell people that I was an orphan because my mom died when I was 6 and my dad was in prison, which felt like he was dead since I never got to see him. I did explain that I wasn’t really though, I just felt like it sometimes.

9. I’m afraid of heights but spend several afternoons this last summer hanging out 30 feet in the air. It was terrifying and amazing at the same time.

10. I was almost in a Sears Christmas catalog when I was 7,

I forget who I was tagged by but I’m supposed to tell 2 random facts about me
