No place like home

and no hound like Bell 🙂

bell and baby

Everyone is slowly getting into the swing of things as a new little family. More deets on the Family page, but I wanted to thank you all again for being so encouraging and wonderful this weekend. It was a life-changer, for sure, and we couldn’t be happier <3

bringing in baby

Since we spent the weekend at the hospital, we were surrounded by family and friends

who thankfully brought us food and saved us from the likes of this:


Chicken Florentine (?) with brown spinach…

My uncle said it was surprisingly good, though 😉

Our first meal back was turkey wraps and sandwiches (banana peppers, romaine, lettuce, mayo, Dijon and turkey) with dark chocolate almond milk.


So simple, and tasted like the best thing ever.

I just wanted to say a quick hello since my “In Labor” post has been up since Saturday, but I’ll be back tomorrow with some fast fitness fixes.

Don’t forget, Winter Shape Up starts next Monday! It’s going to be a good one.

Have a great night <3

    This is soo exciting! Love the pic of Bella and the one of the Pilot carrying Olivia in! I don’t know about you but I was pretty weak feeling after giving birth and those little car seats can be quite heavy! Our hospital actually had decent food, (the breakfast was the best). Enjoy every moment home with your new little family. It can feel kind of hectic at first but you get into the swing of things pretty quick! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more about little Olivia’s first couple of days your birth story! Take care and rest , rest , rest ! Good luck with the nursing it can be a little tricky at first but its pretty amazing!
