30 before I'm 30.

Before I turned 25, I made myself a list of things I wanted to do before I turned 25. 
It didn't last as long as I intended, but it was fun! 
I decided to try it again before I turn 30. 
And since I'm only 28, I have more than a year to try and finish.

I haven't completed my list all the way, but I'm getting started on things... 
so here are the first few.
I'm also taking any suggestions!

1. Read 30 books from the American Classics list. 
2. Put a funky color in my hair, even if its not permanent. 
3. Sew a quilt. 
4. A violin recital or concert all on my own!
5. Go skiing or snowboarding. 
6. Take Piper to Disneyland (maybe Hayley)
7. Take a photography class. 
8. Run a half marathon.
9. Finally lose these extra 40 lbs. 
10. Sew matching dresses for my girls. 

There's my first 10! 
Let me know if you have any other ideas and I might put them on my list. 

Love you guys! 
Wish me luck on my road to 30!

Life Lately

Well life around here has been really nuts lately. 
I don't think I even have a decent picture to share. 
Nothing really new has happened, so nothing new to report...

I think I've hit a new level of burned out. 
I've been running constantly since July. 
I've taken every violin student possible
(and I LOVE them all! So much!!!) 
I've taken every little job I could think of. 
Its been insane. 
Fun, wild, busy, but insane. 

I decided to find a way to trim something. 
Trevor and I talked for a long time, 
and we decided I needed to stop teaching music time at Piper's preschool.
I have really, really loved it, 
but it has been tricky to fit in our schedule.
I'm really going to miss those kids.
They have been so fun!

The past few months have been intense to say the least. 
We owe our family so much.
We've had so much help and we've both worked SO hard. 
I know all our hard work is going to pay off for our family. 
It has to. 

So, forgive me if I'm a little more absent from my blog. 
I'm exhausted and am just trying to finish strong.
This has been tough for all of us to do.
Having a very small income and lots of stress has been hard on all of us. 

Trevor is looking for a job and I'm sure something wonderful will come our way soon.
He's working hard on school and lots of things. 
And I'm working hard and the girls are being awesome. 

And that's it. 
I'll be back around here soon I'm sure. 
But I'm on instagram @brebeccalewis 
so you can find me there.

Hayley and Mommy

This girl is my partner in crime and its so fun! 
She is so silly and fun and goofy and we all just love it. 
She speaks her own language. I just wish I could understand it. 
She is so chatty and friendly and sweet!

Piper is all big and grown up and doesn't like to take selfies with me anymore. 
Hayley is still into it though. haha

I really love my girls so much!
And I love watching them grow up. 
I wish it didn't happen so fast, but it is super fun!

Piper... the selfie queen

Piper sure loves her selfies! 
I found about 50 of these on my phone just from yesterday. 
I sure love her little face!

And I love that they are all just a TINY bit out of focus.
She's the cutest!

Tune Tuesday (on Wednesday)

Hi Friends! 
I'm starting up my Tune Tuesdays and figured I'd post today, 
even thought its a day late. 
So check out this GORGEOUS tune.
Its The Ludlows from Legend of the Fall. 

Piper was the Director, and at one point was tapping on the tripod, 
so sorry about that. haha

That's life trying to film with a 4 year old around, I guess!

Let me know what you think and let me know if you have any requests!
