Game of Thrones

As I’m sitting here typing I can’t help but be distracted.  Tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones has me all sorts of messed up.  I will never hear “hold the door” in the same way ever again.  If someone tells me to hold the door I might just cry.  

Borderline obsessive?  Beyond.

It has to be the best show I’ve seen in a long time.  I’m sharing some Game of Thrones themed goodies I can’t get enough of!

Are you tuned in to Game of Thrones every Sunday like me?  I can’t even deal with how epic it is!

Introducing…Chewie!

Hi friends!  Some of you who follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (find me at AndreaBai) may have already met Chewbacca, aka Chewie.  He’s the newest member of our family we adopted from the Yolo County Animal Service Shelter.  So how did this happen?

For Damian’s 6th birthday he asked for donations for the animal shelter instead of presents.  Be still my heart for having such an amazingly thoughtful child.  Ever since then we’ve visited the shelter almost weekly to say “hi” to all of the animals.  

Chewie The Mutt

Well, as you can imagine there are only so many times you can go to the shelter without wanting a dog.  Usually, Damian wants to give all the dogs a treat and simply show love.  He has always left saying he hoped the dogs found their forever family.  He generally doesn’t ask to bring one home.  Until Chewie.

Chewie was found on the streets of Oakland by a Davis resident.  They brought him home to quickly find out a puppy doesn’t work with a full time work schedule.  So off to the shelter he went.  Damian is well aware of how quickly puppies are adopted and said we had to get him right then.  Something about Chewie made him say “he is our dog.”  I couldn’t say no!

Getting a puppy wasn’t exactly on my wish list.  I originally wanted a dog in a year or two and preferably around two years old.  Funny how life hits you.  He’s actually a really mellow and lovable dog.  Of course he gets puppy energy, but nothing I can’t handle.

We get asked what breeds he is.  I’m not sure what he is mixed with.  We recently took a DNA test and are currently awaiting the results.  They should arrive any day now.  The shelter guessed he was some sort of a cocker mix and poodle mix.  No, not a cockapoo.  He’s definitely mixed with other breeds.  Any guesses?!

So here he is, the newest member of the family.  I’m sure you will see him pop up on here and my social media accounts quite often.  I figured it was only fitting if I formally introduced him to you all!

Purple Tropical Smoothie

IMG_1450

This past week was a pretty big one with my youngest coconut, Paxton.  For the past month or two he has refused to go into any childcare situation.  I’m talking places he used to love and play in – the gym, church, and MOPS.  I was paying for an expensive gym membership and wasn’t able to use it.  Last week he finally started going to the gym childcare.  

I needed that. My mom gut needed that.

Okay, who am I kidding. I have a gut cause I love Popeye’s and chocolate cake.

I love my children and I don’t like to be away from them.  However, that hour in the gym is so good for my body and mind.  I get to kind of zone out and take care of myself.  That’s not something I do often.  

Oh, and I potty trained him…

IN TWO DAYS! 

I potty trained both my coconuts in two days.  I think I may need to write a blog post on how I do it. I’ve had quite a few girlfriends and snapchat followers ask about it.

Anyhow, back to the gym.  I recently tried BodyPump and loved it.  How did I not know about this before?  It’s exactly what I want from a class!  

After a workout I need to replenish my body.  Most of the time I will have a protein shake.  This shake has been on repeat this past week.  I hope you love it just as much as me!

I’m very picky about my protein powders. I don’t like ones with an aftertaste, chalky feel, or unpleasant flavors. I really love Vi. I used to buy them from Amazon, but now get them from a friend who is a distributor.

I need to focus on my diet so much more. I lost 10 pounds and gained 5 back. It’s the most frustrating thing when you’re eating well. I need to stop waiting till 2 in the afternoon to eat. My body holds onto all the fat because my metabolism is all messed up. You think I’ve adjusted knowing this information? Of course not. I need some easy breakfast ideas that aren’t yogurt and fruit.

Have any easy, quick, healthy meal ideas to share? Any faves? I need all the help.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

muir woods with kids

Mother’s Day is one of those days that were hard for me growing up.  I had an amazing Grammy, but I have never called someone Mom.  Being called “mommy” and “mama” everyday is something I never take for granted.  My heart literally melts every time one of my coconuts does.

Okay, maybe the “mama wipe my butt” ones don’t quite give me the feels.

While some mamas would rather sleep in or pee alone, little trinkets of appreciation are always nice.  

Other great gift ideas?  There are two things I really would love for Mother’s Day: a massage and a facial.  *hint hint husband*

What’s your favorite moment with or as a mom?
