Mama and Me | Liz and Sunday

I spent last week in Fredericksburg passing time visiting with family and lots of friends while Tommy fulfilled his state required military duty. A few days in a row I had dates for breakfast, lunch AND dinner. I am pretty sure I gained ten pounds because of it, but it was totally worth it! I had a great time catching up with everyone. Of course one of those dates was reserved especially for Samantha! Check out the fun shots she grabbed of Sunday and I in the parking lot of Cracker Barrel Thursday morning. I love that we made time to snap a few pictures of each other! Also... can I just share a huge confession with you? These are the first pictures of myself that I haven't completely wanted to photoshop in YEARS! Like... I actually like them just the way they are. I can SO see the progress I'm making with Crossfit! And that feeling? SO awesome. (Although I'm going to have to quit eating after this week to make up for all the damage I've done the past few days... ;))

Anyway... to the pics! So fun! And stay tuned - I'll be blogging the few that I grabbed of her and her little man in the next few days!

And since I'm not ready to share my real (aka wearing just a sports bra & shorts) before and current ("after" isn't here yet ;)) Crossfit pics, I thought I'd throw up this comparison. This is just two months of hard work! So worth it!
