A Bunch of Random Musings

Hey friends!

Did ya miss me?! 😉

The work conference was busy, exhausting, and wonderful, so I had no chance to blog….but it made you miss me more, so it’s all good. 😉

A Bunch of Random Musings

And because it’s Friday AND my mind is alllll over the place (what a weird work week for me!), here is a peek into a bunch of random musings that I have going on. You’re welcome.

1. Can we talk about this amazing breakfast I’ve been enjoying lately?!

I was contacted by the kind folks at Mix My Own –this fantastic company that packages up custom made breakfast cereals for you!

I got to choose my very own custom mix….and dang it’s good!

I chose 2 kinds of granola, a bunch of dried fruit, cacao nibs, coconut, and goji berries.

But you can choose whatever you’d like or select from one of their pre-made mixes.


I feel super healthy just eating my–and I know I am fueling me & Baby Perks really well. :)

So get your own & connect with the nice folks of Mix My Own!

2. My husband is the bomb dot com.

I know I’ve said this a bazillion times, but he really is. He picked me up at the airport last night after a really long day of school.

And when I got home the entire apartment was clean, and he had built……..

SO excited. It’s a pink bookshelf for baby girl’s room (it’ll be on it’s side eventually), and I am STOKED.

I bought it on a whim the other day before I left (from Ikea), and he built it while I was gone without telling me.


Love my Jared! <3

3. I had my last solo plan flight probably for a really long time…..

As the plane touched down in SLC last night, I reflected on the fact that any time I fly from now on, I will have an actual baby/child with me.

Wow. Crazy cool stuff!

4. The work conference was so fun! But I am totally exhausted.

I work full-time from home as a personal health coach for a nation-wide insurance company, and every year we have a coaching conference so that we can reconnect & actually be in person with our co-workers (we all work from home all over the country). We were in Ohio this time, and it was fun to stay in a hotel, meet up with coaches whom I admire & love, learn, and be inspired.

Each day was pretty long, but they were filled with great activities & yummy food.

I also led 2 fitness classes in the mornings (1 day was Zumba & 1 day was bootcamp), and those were a hit. People seemed to be impressed that I was working out while pregnant….I guess that is not a normal thing??! haha.

{I’ll post the entire workout next week–it was a good one!}

It was a fun jaunt for a few days and I really adore some of my c0-workers. We had a blast together & each night I went to bed feeling blessed & totally tired. Oh and my voice? Gone. Apparently I like to talk?

That’s weird.


But I am totes disoriented now…it’s Friday??! hah. I mean I am cool with the fact that it’s Friday, but dude, that was a weird week.

5. It’s Friday the 13th.

Speaking of it being Friday….it’s actually Friday the 13th. Whoooooooo.

Anyone really superstitious out there? I am not, actually. And I’ve had some awesome Friday the 13ths, so I fully expect today to rock. :)

6. Yesterday was the “1 month til Baby Perks’ due date day”!!

Whoa. Things got really real folks.

She is now due in less than a month’s time. (I ‘turn’ 36 weeks tomorrow too).

And today I get to see her on an ultrasound, hear her heartbeat, and get checked to see how I’m doing/what the doc’s predictions might be. It’s gonna be a fun day! I’ll keep ya all updated, promise.


Alright, I am off to teach Zumba, work, and then hopefully just chill. Tomorrow is my baby shower!

Have a GREAT day! <3
