A couple weekends ago my friend Megan and I took Sophia to her first movie at the theaters. We went to see Frozen and we all absolutely LOVED it! I don't know why I waited so long to take her to see it!

Sophia did SO good. And now we are all obsessed with this movie, the music.. everything! Someone shared a link to the movie on Instagram and we've probably watched it everyday since we saw it in theaters and haven't got tired of it. And we listen to the songs in the car. 

And I'm also playing it at piano lessons. 

I've been listening to Sophia play and she'll call her dolls Elsa and Anna. She even asked if I could braid her hair like Elsa's. I love watching her be such a little girl. I was the exact same way when I was little. Now I get to enjoy it all again through Sophia.

Earlier this month I joined 74 other women on Instagram in a challenge called A Little Too Fluffy. It's a way of motivating each other to eat healthy/work out ... pretty much keep up with our New Years Resolutions.

I've never really dieted before bc I've stayed the same weight since highs school even after I had Sophia but within the last year I have gained about 15 pounds! I have noticed that I snack a lot more and I've hardly gone to the gym so this challenge was something I wanted to try.

It's only been two weeks but I have really enjoyed it! I haven't gone to the gym every day but I've been watching what I eat and trying not to snack all day. I have also cut out soda and sweet tea (I did have one soda at the movie theaters & one sweet tea when we went out to eat) BUT I'm not drinking them like I used to.

So far I have lost around 5 pound! If I could lose 5 more I'd be VERY happy! Then I want to work on toning up. Last summer I felt so uncomfortable in everything that I couldn't wait for Fall to get here so I could cover up in jeans in sweaters. I don't want to be like that this year. I want to feel comfortable and good and I know I will get there. 

Check out the #alittletoofluffy on Instagram to see what all the ladies have been doing & eating! I love getting idea & inspiration from there!

// On Friday I was walking next door to my parents house to pick up Sophia and saw this little on starring right at me. I snapped a picture and started walking towards it until I heard something behind me. I turned around & there were two bigger deer standing behind me. I took off running. Deer are one of my favorites animals and I'm usually not afraid of them but for some reason I felt like they didn't like that I was so close to the little one. I'm happy I got the picture though! 

// After spending all day inside on Friday Sophia and I decided to head into town and pick up some things. We recently painted our dining room yellow so I wanted to get some grey curtains. I finally found the perfect ones at TJMaxx. My mom works there so I stood around and talked to her. Sophia just sat in the cart waiting for me to go. 

// While we were at TJMaxx I picked up a new candle. The candle is from DW Home & it smells amazing (& looks pretty too!) It's called Sunkissed Daisies & it smells just like summer. I had it burning this weekend while it was snowing outside. I'm ready for warmer weather. 

// On Sunday we went to Cracker Barrel like we do every Sunday. Sophia loves it there so it works perfect and gets us out of the house!

// Even though it snowed most of the weekend there was a little sunlight that came into the house. Can't wait for summer days when the sunlight stays a little longer.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!
