Sorry for the technical difficulties!

I have been trying to switch the blog address to a domain and it has been very temperamental! I think all of the bugs are worked out! Don't worry about your bookmarks. It will all forward...in theory!


First Place 4 Health

I am so excited because I just got confirmation that I will be able to co-teach this Spring a program called First Place 4 Health which teaches Christ-centered healthy living.

There are several class times offered at Houston's First Baptist Church and the one I will teaching will be on Tues nights at 6pm.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions about this great program!


Happy Birthday Riley!!!

The one that started it all! It was while I was on bed rest (of sorts) with Riley that I discovered Stroller Strides. Beth Moore stated in one of her books that when she looks for something she always finds something else that not only distracts from what she was originally looking for but also happens to be the one thing she needed! That was the case with Stroller Strides!

Now two years later, I am joyful and thankful that I have been able to spend most of this time home with Riley and of course my other two! It has flown by! I cleaned out her closet yesterday of all of the 12 month and most of the 18 month clothing since it no longer fits her and filled it with lots of new 2T clothes. She now has a closet full of cute girlie clothes to show off!

Here is my baby girl on her 2nd birthday!

Looking beautiful!

The number #1 mall hazard...

Target! With our last few classes moved indoors to the mall, Target has had a few more customers! It is funny! Every mom that has come to the mall class has taken a trip to Target...myself included! The change of scenery is nice, esp with all of the lights and giant Christmas trees everywhere, but I have had to definitely put forth some effort to stay clear of "that" side of the mall!

What is it about that giant red logo that attracts all women and convinces us to willingly dish out $100+ in one visit? My husband is still trying to figure that one out!



I just checked our stats and Wow!

Compare the map from this morning with this one...

This is awesome! It is so wonderful to be able to reach out to this many moms around the world! I love the web!

To further demonstrate my dorkdom (is that a word). I am going to be posting mini exercise videos showing some of our most popular exercises. These can be done at home any time during the day! Even if they are only "mom" minutes you'll have all day, they will be well spent!

Hello Mommies Around the World!

OK, so I'll admit, I am an all around geek/dork. I truly enjoy keeping up the blog as well as a few others. I have and I started using a site analyzer to see who's reading, etc. One thing I was surprised to see was that we have several readers from not only all over Houston, but all over the US and all over the world!

That is awesome! So to all of our readers I say welcome! We're happy to have you!

Here is a partial map of our visitors! We have one in Indonesia as well, but I couldn't squeeze that into the frame without making everything else very tiny!


Another Beautiful Morning...

It was bright, sunny, and breezy this morning...perfect for Stroller Strides! We had a big class and all our moms did a great job...as usual!

OK, time for a sentimental twist....

On the way home I heard a song on the radio that nearly had me tears. It was called One Life to Love by 33 Miles.

Here are the lyrics to the chorus:

You only get just one time around,
You only get one shot at this,
One chance,
To find out,
The one thing that you don't wanna miss,
One day when its all said and done
I hope you see that it was enough,
This one ride,
One try,
One life,
To love.
This was a great reminder for me to keep focus on the things that truly matter. It is definitely easy to become consumed by the mounting pressures and nuisances life can bring, esp with motherhood!

On those moments when your little ones are acting up or extremely fussy, just stop and remember to love those moments because they belong to you in your one precious life!
