Life Update: Dad's Visit + My New Car!

Hi ladies! I realize it has been quite some time since I gave you guys an update on me personally. Sometimes, I get so caught up in my busy days that I forget to share with you more about me and what is going on!

So, the last month has been a HECTIC one. I got sick with a virus and then Greyson got sick and had to be hospitalized since he couldn't keep fluids down (blogged a few weeks ago on this), but he is doing amazing and has gained his weight back and it eating like a champ!
Shortly after that, Grady, my husband, had surgery for a nerve burn around his spine to cut back on his back pain from a car accident a few years ago. The surgery was a success and he is feeling MUCH better today. To help with recovery his mother, my awesome MIL, came down to help out around the house. I honestly could not have prayed for a better mother-in-law-she is FANTASTIC!

Right after she left, my dad surprised us with a visit and stayed for almost a week! Greyson was so excited to see him since it had been a year. When he pulled up, Grey ran outside in his diapers and jumped right into his arms. He followed his PawPaw everywhere while he was here.

We went to the beach and had a great time. It was nice spending time with this man. I don't speak of him very often, but growing up, I never really had parents if that makes sense. My parents divorced when I was 2 and I went to live with my grandmother while my mother was off hours away finishing law school and my dad was off doing his thing. It was always such a bitter relationship to be stuck in the middle of. I remember always hearing one side of the story and then coming back to the other parent only to hear another-it was rough to go through, so I turned to my grandmother since she was neutral and never tried to talk me into anything or convince me of things. Eventually my mother remarried and tried to get me adopted by my step-dad (probably so my real dad would be out of our lives). I really did not have a choice as it was all forced upon me at a very young age.

Over time, things happened and I lost touch with my dad. But when I became pregnant, I wanted my son to know his grandfather so I reached out to him and I am so glad I did. This man never goes a day or two without telling me he loves me, that he is proud of me, and to FaceTime us to see his grandbaby. There are NO perfect parents in this world, but the parent who reaches out and tries their best-that is pretty damn close to perfection.

We spent some time reminiscing over my baby stuff. You can see him here going through each piece of my baby clothing and smelling it. This is such a precious photo that my husband took. I almost tear up looking at it!

After a few days, dad left and went back to Mississippi. I did talk him into buying himself a Camaro while he was here. He never buys anything for himself so while I was getting my new car detailed, I decided to take him over to the next dealership to browse their used lot since he didn't want new. He had been talking to me about wanting either a truck or a "Camaro" for quite some time. I knew the Camaro was what he really wanted since he only said "truck" and no specific kind. 

As we pulled up on the lot, guess what was sitting there? A used 2012 Camaro in his favorite color-dark blue. We got him a good deal and he got to drive all the way home in his new car. He called me and thanked me after his 7 hour long trip back home. He said he wouldn't have gotten it if I hadn't been there forcing him! Ha.

As for my car, we bought a white 2014 Black Edition GT-R. The GT-R itself is a rare car to get ahold of, but the Black Edition is very special! I have always loved white cars and this will make my 3rd white car to own. It has a Recaro interior with a carbon fiber spoiler, RAYS wheels, and carbon fiber panels inside. 

You guys KNOW how much of a car girl I am-it is my favorite hobby

I also launched my NEW workout plans and BOY have they been doing well! Ladies are already seeing changes in their bodies and this makes me so happy. You can view them all here, but the bundle below has been the best deal!

Disney & Hawaii are coming up in the next couple of months and we are going to start trying for baby #2 next month. We are crazy excited for what is in store for us for the 2nd half of the year!
