It's a GIRL

_____


Yesterday I had the opportunity to hang out with my beautiful cousin Leelani & her handsome little man Siale. We had a fun breakfast at the cutest restaurant in Beaverton, Oregon called Black Bear Diner. We sat & caught up, then eventually found ourselves venturing around the Washington Square mall; giving ourselves free makeovers at SEPHORA...you know, the usual. 

Then we spontaneously took a couple of maternity photos before her baby girl is here!! (MONDAY) I feel so lucky to have captured such a special moment & miracle that will be here soon! Leelani is not only drop dead model material gorgeous, she is also an amazing mother. I can't wait to meet your baby girl- I love her already!

Days like today remind me how I thankful I am for families & also for the miracle of bringing a sweet little soul into the world to love unconditionally; what an incredible gift!

➳ Health Nut in the making

_____


2014 was a glorious year! Full of midnight Taco Bell runs, Chuck-A-Rama date nights, desserts.....A LOT, extra buttery popcorn at the movie theater, candy, FIVE GUYS, and so much more. I can't say I didn't enjoy myself, because that would be a lie; It was beautiful.

BUT....
that's it.

Although it was fun and clearly delicious, I have put on the most weight IN MY LIFE! Ever.
These past few weeks I have been on roll with my healthy appetite and work outs, I intend to make it a lifestyle from here on out! I'm so excited to get back into a healthy mind and body! 
I'll keep my blog updated with my progress!

In the mean time let's look at how yummy being healthy can be from my last few meals/snacks!

He is Joy/Elder Moeaki

I can't stop thinking about how much our amazing Savior loves us- he has blessed me so much through the ups and the downs. Even though I can't physically see you I know you are there listening and guiding me by the spirit each day. He is my strength.

HE IS JOY.


Elder Moeaki (Left)

This is Tahi's brother on the left Elder Moeaki currently serving a mission in Perth, Australia. Skyping this guy on Mothers Day and Christmas has been such a fun experience the past few years; watching him grow into such an incredible missionary. He has a special spirit in him and now an awesome Aussie accent too! Hahah, we know this guy will be doing BIG things with life and we can't wait to see him do just that. We have so much love for you Elder Moeaki! Keep up the hard work and we'll see you in June with your best man outfit ironed and steamed- ready to go.
