Ramsey Renovation – Part 2

Sorry this is delayed — been working tirelessly to finish the details of the project (which ironically took infinitely longer to complete than the major demolition). The reality show enthusiastically requested a demo video. We made Caralyn film it on our iPhone last minute so we could quickly send them a lame video of us talking […]

Ramsey Renovation

If you follow me on instagram, you know that my life is full of babies, work and home renovations. Which is why I am currently a terrible blogger. Oh, and home renovation reality show was just filmed at our house last week? So, I think that’s a fair excuse. The prep work getting into that […]

Keeping up with the Ramseys.

This month, Ellie turned 10 months and Jack turned 2 1/2. Jack: – LOVES music and youtube music videos: pentatonix, Daft Punk and Michael Jackson are his favorites. – Favorite movie: Toy Story. He sleeps with a Buzz and Woody doll. Greets you by saying, “Howdy, Padnah (partner)” and “To Infinity and Beyond!” Refuses to […]

The Opens (Why I’m Crazy)

Jake, is the head coach of a CrossFit box in Arkansas. I’ve had the pleasure of taking his class, being coached by him and watching him develop into a wonderful trainer and athlete. He’s one of those annoying people who can envision himself performing a skill or moving heavy weight and actually do it.  He […]

24 Day Challenge: Week 3

The challenge ended on Sunday. In typical fashion, I was delinquent in my blogging efforts because I was too busy telling the world I spent the last 24 days sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. I lost over 10lbs. Five inches from my waist and two inches off my hips. To celebrate, I ate the icing of the […]

Anyways, one of the things I tend to be horrible at is eating consistently clean. I will do wonderful for about a week. But […]

In no way am I trying to tell anyone what to do during their own pregnancy or claiming to be an expert on fitness during pregnancy.

the dark side.

When I was pregnant with Jack, Spencer Pratt and I were trying to figure out ways that I could keep working without putting love nugget in day care. I knew it would require quite a bit of sacrifice and commitment to motherhood and nursing to stay with both, but it was too early to retire […]

The cult of CrossFit.

I love working out. Always have, always will. In an effort to do things together, my rock star husband will work out with me. He comes to my fitness classes, always standing in the front or grabbing the spin bike nearest me. He cheers, he hoots, he hollers, he whines, he complains, he hobbles around […]
