Life Updates

Surprisingly enough all of my life updates deal with me lately instead of the kiddos, imagine that!

1. I got a job?!? I know ... i know... it was the right place at the right time kind of thing and everything just fell into place so easily. I am now working just a few days a month as a nutrition educator in one of the local elementary schools. I am really really excited! I will be teaching 7th and 8th graders which is definitely going to be challenging but I am hoping it will be a great experience. Any middle school teachers out there that can give me some advice it would be much appreciated :-)


2. Since we moved back to Pennsylvania i have done dessert catering once in a while. Over the last few months I have gotten more and more requests for orders so i put up a Facebook page to have a landing site for everyone. It has been so much fun making so many yummy treats for people.

Liam got a pumpkin from the farmers market this week and wanted to "draw eyes" on it, i think he did one heck of a job making his first jack-o-lantern!

Lucy at the farmers market eating some falafel and tabouli 


Liam Land.... his personalized version of candy land 



Okay....now i debated big time on sharing this one but decided in the end to share because EXACTLY one year ago today this was me (any Lucy).... 


A few weeks ago i shared that I was doing P90X, with the program you take pictures on day 1, 30, 60 and 90 ... here are my day 1 and 30 day pictures .... i was just pumped to see some ab definition with two kids two and under! Thank You Tony Horton and your awesome butt kicking workouts :-)

Amazing P90 results. I've been wanting to try and you may just be the kick in the pants I needed!! I teach 7th-8th graders and love it! It's totally what I think I was born to do! Goodness...advice? Be consistent and strict. The stricter you are in the beginning, the more fun you can have later on! =)

Congratulations on the job! The kids are getting so big. I want to have a playdate with them :)

You look amazing. I want to try P90X but I'm still trying to figure out how to balance it all.
