Happenings in The Walz House

Last week I went into single mom mode with Brad out of town for 7 days and found free time a very limited thing.  Lucky for us (well really I should say me), hand/foot/mouth cleared up so Everett was given the green light to do back to daycare.  This mommy took full advantage of daycare, without throwing him in to the fire full time just yet…that comes next week.  I had numerous appointments, yoga classes to use up on my membership about to expire, house to clean, a classroom to get ready, a dog to give attention to (Brad usually does this), etc.  You get the picture because like any mom out there can contest to…we are busy 24/7/365!

It is that time of the month……..Stitch Fix Friday! Once a month I sit patiently waiting for the arrival of a little box filled with adorable clothes.  If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix this is how it works:

1.  You go to stitchfix.com and sign up for an account (please see below about this referral link not working yet).  When you sign up for your account you are asked detailed questions about yourself and your personal style.  I want to stress that you don’t have to enter in your credit card information at this point.  You are simply taking you “style profile quiz”.  They really want to know about your likes and dislikes with fashion so it is best to fill it out completely!

Hello Again…it has only been 2 years!

Recently, I added the app Timehop on my phone and if you don’t know anything about this app, well it syncs with your Facebook account and adds pictures or statuses from that day throughout time.  I find every time this app sends a new notification to me that “my day in time” is ready, it has been….”2 years ago you posted this status” and that status usually has something to do with Pinadvised.  Needless to say I have been on quite a leave from the blogging world over the past two years.  So……what have I been up to that kept me away from a computer, well to put it in better terms, kept me away from most social situations (okay that might be extreme).  I am sure you all can take one guess and for those that know me…(those little dots always make me think of a drum roll), my husband, Brad, and I welcome our son into this world on May 1st, 2013, Everett Jensen Walz.

Busy Bee

So today was a day filled with Pins! I was able to accomplish 3 pins. Sometime it is not the accomplishing that takes all the work, it is the blogging afterwards. I am in the process of getting ready for a friends baby shower tomorrow so I am going to step away from my computer with all you pinadvised readers hanging. I will say I was able to create 1 recipe, 1 party idea and 1 art project! Guess you will have to check back tomorrow for a full report.

Happy Hump Day 🙂

Workout Motivation

At the beginning of the summer I set a goal that before my husband and I started thinking kids, I wanted to be in peak shape.  Doctors tend to say that if you are already active prior to getting pregnant it is easier on your baby to continue to be active during pregnancy, obviously within reason.  In early June I had ordered the workout DVDs Insanity after seeing some amazing results from friends on facebook.  I figured this was a great way to get myself back into space without having to buy a gym membership.  After all, who wants to workout in 100+ degree heat this summer? NOT ME!

Lose 5 lbs. in 7 days! For real?

Over the past two months I have been trying to get back into top shape.  I have started to “try” and eat healthy as well as investing in the new workout video, Insanity (which I love and have seen great results).  So when I first saw this pin I figured it was too good to be true.  After looking at the ingredients listed for this drink it was clear the only weight that was going to be lost was water weight.  Dandelion Root, cranberry juice and lemon juice are all diuretics.  So how this drinks works is by increasing the amount of excretion from your body.  They do this by causing your kidneys to increase the amount of sodium placed in your urine, thus taking the extra water with it .  Hence, losing water weight.  The weight you lose is likely to come back but I figured it was worth a try and help take some bloating off, it is swimsuit season after all!

Get the look for less!

So I feel like DIY projects are not limited to just household projects but also outfits! Today’s post made me literally jump up and down at finding the pieces of the outfit and not only finding the pieces but at a price that fit my budget.

Original Pin:

I loved this pin, probably one of my favorite looks. It is something you can wear as casual or dressy. Like most pins of super cute cloths, you can never find them or that they are ridicously expensive! I was officially on the hunt for this look for less….
