Dolka Pots Boutique

Downtown Franklin in the Fall is the best!  We had a blast at the Pumpkin Festival today.  Hundreds of craft/vendor booths were set-up and we fell in love with Dolka Pots Children's Boutique! We bought these adorable outfits for the kids!  The shirt & skirt combo came with a bow and only cost $25!  We bought the other 3 bows for $1/ea.  The boys shirt was $12.  The best part is the proceeds benefit adoptions!!  Just wanted to spread the word about this adorable boutique.

Todays Proverbs 31 Devotional "Do the Work"

I LOVE reading the daily devotionals from Proverbs 31 Ministries every morning!  God always speaks straight to my heart no matter the subject or author.  So grateful for this ministry!

Prepping for MY 30 Day Shred!

I'm always interested in fun, new workouts and keep hearing great reviews of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.  Crystal over at Thrifty Mama just finished the 30 Day Shred and details her progress with pics here.  Last night I purchased my own copy on Amazon for under $10 (including S&H). It should arrive before November 1st so I'm gearing up for my one month of transformation!  My love handles, pudgy belly rolls and thunder thighs need to be tamed!

In addition, I've been working with my nutritionist friend about learning to eat the right amount of fats/carbs/proteins 6 times a day.  I never realized how much protein and fat our bodies really need. It seems like when I get the food part going good (eating healthy!), the fitness aspect falls to the wayside.  Thankful for this opportunity to incorporate healthy living in both areas.  Taking it back!

Anyone with me?
