i know i know i switched from blogger to tumblr about two years ago but i have decided now to go back to blogger and this time keeping up with my blog, no excuses! i have been so inspired lately by some other blogs i have been reading (bluebird blog and taza blog…if you havent seen them GO look!! ) and i have many ideas of things i want to blog about in the near future. So come along this journey with me and check out my blog at http://alyciamealy.blogspot.com
it will look a little something like this ….
“So i am back to blogger and here to stay! About two years ago i switched over to tumblr but have decided that blogger is best for me and i have every intention of being dedicated to this blog and posting more regularly than i have in the past ! My hopes for this blog is to post everyday life as a momma and share my hobbies, loves and inspirations as well as improve in my photography. You can plan on seeing things such as cooking, style, thrifty finds, my sweet baby boy and lots of pictures of what were doing … enjoy and be inspired!”
I will still be on tumblr from time to time maybe using it to track my fitness and such and most definetly to read my friends blogs on here but i will mostly be blogging from my blogger .
An end to summer
This past weekend was so lovely ! We checked out this new beach called capo beach that none of us have ever been to and i can honestly say it is probably me new favorite beach! Its the perfect distance to meet one of my best girlfriends half way and it just sort of has this vacationy feel to it! Here are some pictures from the weekend …
me and my little guy
he loves to attack my face ha ha
so thankful for great friends !
gorgeous sunset <3
I discovered this new place im dying to check out called the dry bar. They have one in Orange County and also in San diego, They have six different blow outs you can chose from for only 35 dollars! I rarely get a blow out but this place looks amazing and one of my favorite bloggers goes there (The Honeybee blog), and her hair is always flawless! They give you free mimosas while you get your hair done, it seems to me like the perfect thing to do with some girlfriends! I will let you all know how it is when i go!
Let the prepping begin ! Sephora color - lost with out my gps
Working on myself
So ive realized my wardrobe is starting to look a bit worn out and Ive been putting off buying new clothes for quite sometime now cause i wanted to wait till i lost all my baby weight well i have not been as diligent as i planned on being with my exercise and weight loss. I planned on being my pre pregnancy weight when kyler was 3 months old but he is turning 4 months old next week and i still have 9 more pounds to lose to get there and 14 to get to where i really want to be, i really have no one to blame but myself i slacked off for a whole month! but now im getting back into it just doing little exercises here and there and going for walks and back to eating healthier, since right now david is working so many hours going to the gym has just not really been an option but i am hoping to lose as much weight as possible by the time i see my best friend in 2 1/2 weeks! i think i can lose at least seven if not more with nursing /walking and eating lots of veggies and no carbs after lunch! Im excited about it i already see the weight coming off again ! So anyways my hubs said i could buy some clothes so i decided not to wait any longer and just buy some clothes i could fit into now and when i lose the rest of the weight , i still need to get some more new things but heres what i got so far …
So Ive decided to really take some time to work on myself right now and lose the baby weight, get back in shape and to get some new clothes since its been soooo long since ive done that! Heres some style inspirations i found on pinterest and am loving …
Im loving long flowy skirts
tribal prints …
and those shoes!!
Man we have been sooo busy lately ! I need to take a few days to try and get kyler back on some kind of a schedule, he has been a bit fussy lately and very unpredictable ! He started teething a few weeks ago and it feels like it still hasnt broken threw the skin yet and hes also been going through a huge growth spurt, everyday he is doing something different, every morning i wake up and he looks bigger ! I thought when they turned three months things were suppose to get easier ? But kyler has been the opposite, he was the easiest newborn ever and now he has been a bit of a handful lately! he went from sleeping thru the night 1030-6 to waking up about two-three times a night for the last two-three weeks! Now i know they have growth spurts but his usually lasted 2-3 days not 2 weeks! I am just kind of at a loss if its the teething a growth spurt or just that he has been off schedule for so long? I would love some momma advice so feel free to comment and share! I need him so be sleeping through the night again! David has been working so much lately so i have been the one mostly taking care of kyler and he has been on call so much that i have not been able to leave the baby with him very much which means no gym/me time/ girl time and i need that little break every once in awhile! All that said i am loving every minute of being a mom ! Best experience ever =) and i am so thankful for the times my husband is home to help out ! this morning he woke up with kyler and took him for a walk in the stroller so i got some extra sleep which was much needed ! Hope i dont sound like im complaining im just feeling the weight of a fussy baby for the first time and would love some advice !
My current favorite breakfast!
Vegetable scrambled eggs - I usually just eat egg whites cause I don’t like scrambled eggs by themselves but after discovering this I am hooked !
They are so simple to make, first I chop all the vegetables up
I used :
-green bell peppers
than sautée them in butter
I just eye ball the amount of vegetables I want to use. Once all the vegetables are soft I add the eggs (i use six, this makes alot of eggs, so reduce if your serving less or just making for yourself) than i scramble them till they are cooked all the way and than add a small amount of cheddar cheese, turn off the heat and add some cherry tomatoes
Mommy and Son Date
Well i guess everyday is a mommy and son date day cause were always together haha but yesterday we went on a little adventure together … I needed to get out of oceanside and have a change of scenery but didnt have alot of gas to go to far so we went to temecula where the sun is always shinning! I love it there, its been gloomy for days here and i needed some sun so we went and looked at harveston lake where i use to go all the time at bible college and than we just went and walked around the mall ! It was a great day, even the drive there is so pretty with all the mountains and open-ness that san diego does not have! I love rolling the windows down and blasting some good country music ha ha ! Kyler loved it to, he just loves being in his stroller or car seat or out looking at new things ! I just love my little man!
