Five on Friday

It's that time again for another 5 on Friday link up! This week is a mix of things- pregnancy, summer, and fitness! Enjoy :)
{1} Adios Indiana

Say What?! Yes, it is true.. Jeff and I are moving back to Decatur, Illinois after living here in Lafayette, Indiana for a little of 2 months. WHY you ask? Well, the job Jeff took here is now open back in a different Decatur plant where he had worked swing shift. They contacted Jeff about possibly coming back but we said that unless they could offer us the relocation package again (where ADM helped us sale our house and hired movers to pack & move us) we didn't think we would be able to do another move this soon. So a few weeks go by and they call Jeff again saying they will do the full relocation package and he will start there by July 1st!! OMG I was thinking, can not believe this is happening, yet I'm so excited! With our first baby on the way and both of our families in Decatur, IL, it will be perfect. Everything happens for a reason and although it will be a process to get our house on the market here and find a new home there (living with my parents during the transition) it will all be worth it in the end :)

{2} Sunburnt
Loving summer already! This is one of the first summer where I won't be working :) I am a teacher but usually worked at a Daycare for the school age summer program back in Decatur. Now this preggo will get to relax some and work on house hunting as well as job searching for the next school year. A few days ago, I went to the Lafayette pool for some sun & fun and little did I know, I was getting way too much sun. I was there from 12-3:30 and only put on a little sunscreen once I arrived, big HUGE mistake. When I got home I was fried to a crisp- SO RED! I coated on the aloe every few hours and sleep that night was no fun. Learned my lesson for sure.

{3} Beachbody Summer Sale
Huge discount sale going on now until June 9th!! Beachbody usually does a big sale twice a year with different programs and products up to 50% off! Some programs (Les Mills Pump & Charlene Extreme) sold out in the first hour of the sale. If you have ever wondered about the workouts or what is all included, contact me at or facebook message me @ Here is my coach site to order! Don't miss out on these fabulous deals! I am a Beachbody coach and would love you help you achieve your fitness goals.

{4} I'm So Pregnant
Found this video parody of "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea called "I'm So Pregnant". It is hilarious and a look into the future as to what I will be feeling like in my third trimester. I had to share this as I thought all my mom and pregnant followers would get a kick out of it!

{5} 16 Week Bumpdate
*My baby at 16 weeks*
-He or she is able to listen to my voice thanks to the tiny bones forming in their ears.
-Baby is growing hair, lashes, and eyebrows
-Baby's senses of sight, sound, smell, and touch are all coming in.

How far along: 16 Weeks and 5 Days

Baby Size: 4.6 inches long and 3.5 ounces

Gender: 2 more weeks until our gender reveal party! I just want to know so I can SHOP :)

Total Weight Gain: At home scale: 142 Doctors Scale: 144 At my appointment today, I haven't gained any weight since my first appointment at 10 weeks. Say what?!! I feel like I'm eating all the time! So doctor told me that my job is to simply EAT MORE. I'm fine with that haha

Maternity Clothes: Loving my maternity shorts, so comfy!

Movement: Not sure if I have started to feel some fluttering but I'm ready for lots of it.

Sleep: Still crazy dreams ( recent dream- my mom was pregnant at the same time as me and was going to steal our boy name for herself haha) but sleeping better through the night.

Best Moment of the Week: Hearing a strong heartbeat this morning at dr. appointment.

Missing Anything: Not really

Food Cravings: Cereal

Symptoms: Headaches occasionally and some congestion

Labor Signs: Not even close

Wedding Rings: On

Happy or Moody most of the week: I've been feeling great! Excited my bump is starting to pop out more and started my baby registries on line.

Looking Forward to: My best friend's bachelorette party next weekend and gender ultrasound!!
