New Year, New World

Happy 2017!! So far, it's already better than the last two years, lol.  The last two years have greeted us with heartache, grief, and despair. In contrast, today I got to feel my precious grandbaby kick for the first time (first for me, not for his mama). Tomorrow I fly out with my incredible husband to New Orleans for some awesome couple-time. And... I'm on the cusp of expanding Recipe For Fitness. Woohoo!!! Starting a new year with Joy? Yes, please and thank you!!

Definitely better than 2015 and 2016. Definitely.

And because it wouldn't be my life without a little extra chaos/activity, we're also hip deep in baby shower planning. Ya'll should see the notebook we've got going! I'll have to post a pic of it soon. So exciting!! She's got the cutest theme, and it's co-ed/family, rather than the traditional 'women only'. It's going to be super fun!

We're finally able to start enjoying some "normal" meals together, haha, since Shi can (finally) eat chicken and beef. Her food aversions are giving her a break. Yay! She's been doing great with her exercise, too... we see Kayla (the amazing trainer/coach) 3 times a week - two days in the main gym, and one day in Reformer Pilates. And it's been fun to be able to do it together (makes me miss even more having Mom here and going to Pilates with me - we could make it three generations together in the gym!).

Other than all that, we're still packing away Christmas, and culling out what we'll re-purpose for the shower, trying to keep the pups out of everything (already lost a poor defenseless stuffed snowman), I'm keeping up with my continuing ed and new business direction, and though I haven't done any recipe development in awhile, I'm looking forward to diving back into that soon.  I've got a garden ready to harvest, so I'll have fun playing with ways to utilize my bounty. ;-)

I hope the New Year is treating you well!
Best Wishes!!
