Well, just incase you’ve been completely MIA with all my content the past 6 months, we got married June 3 in the most gorgeous wedding in Nashville!! Which is why I was missing from the blog for so long. And drumroll……we’re expecting a precious baby in late April! Big Mama likes to move fast in life! ¬†And before you go all Count Dracula from Sesame Street on me, we got pregnant in July, haha. We always wanted to start a family right away so this was a dream. See our video announcement here. ¬†We couldn’t be happier for this sweet angel to come into our world!

I can’t wait to give you guys a recap of all the beautiful wedding photos in my end of year wrap up even though it seems like 100 years ago!

Thanks so much for reading and come back soon for much much more!

OK…is this real life!? The fact that there is a non invasive fat reducing treatment out there that REALLY WORKS?! I thought it was too good to be true too. Until I did it. And I cannot say enough about how effective Coolsculpting was for me. I had my treatment done at Dr. Biesman’s office and I recently went back to see the final photos. I’ve truly never been happier about a treatment in my life and I can’t get over how effective it was at removing that last bit of stubborn fat.

As you can see the results are AMAZING! I really can’t believe how incredible it turned out. If you are a person who is wanting ¬†to get rid of that last bit of fat for an overall slimmer appearance, look no further than Coolsculpting! To see more about my experience check out the vlog on my youtube channel HERE! Thanks for following along in my partnership with Coolsculpting who sponsored this blog!

 

Y’all, CoolSculpting is a miracle. I really can’t get over how incredibly well it’s working. I went back to Dr. Biesman’s office for a check in before the final result is revealed and I can’t believe the results. At the first check in I noticed the depuffing. I really felt like my stomach looked smaller. This time I REALLY saw how my body is being contoured by CoolSculpting. I have a curve in my waist that I never had before even at my smallest. I didn’t realize how effective it was at transforming your shape as well as removing that last bit of stubborn fat.

How crazy is that result? And the full results are not even in yet. And my clothes fit so much better too! Everything feels so much slimmer.

You can also see in this photo how much more elongated my core looks now. I can’t tell you how pleased I am with it so far. Also I told you guys about the numbness and itching that I was feeling for a few weeks after, for me this is almost completely gone. The results are still not completely in just yet so I will keep you posted in my last blog and vlog going live in late August early September!! Thanks for following along in my partnership with Coolsculpting who sponsored this blog!

You know when you take a bite of something healthy and you’re like NOOOOOO WAYYYYYYY. No way this is good for me because it tastes too good. Well I’ve got a treat for you. This recipe is inspired by my sweet friend Alex White who has an incredible Nashville Company called Milk and Honey Food Co.

Here is the official recipe…

ENERGY BITES

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon black chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup raw honey
3/4 almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I use Premier Protein’s Vanilla)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds
First you blend all the dry ingredients in a food processor(or blender). I typically pulse it a few times.
Then I add in the wet ingredients. All but the chocolate chips. Instead of chocolate chips you could always add in your favorite dried fruit or coconut flakes or anything you’d like. Big Mama likes dat chocolate…
 Once you fold in the chocolate chips you start forming the bites. I prefer rolling them into balls but you could also do bars or whatever shape your little heart desires!
Then stick those little babies in the fridge for at least 2 hours!! They’re good to stay in your fridge for a quick breakfast or snack for several days…but mine don’t usually last more than 3. Hope you love them!! Leave a comment below and share this with your friends!!
