Team World Vision

Hi Friends!  I will be running the Kansas City Half Marathon in October with Team World Vision to help provide clean water to communities in Africa!  "World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice." The needs in these communities are real, and I am so excited to be a small part in helping solve this problem.

For every $50 raised, water will be provided for one person for a lifetime.  Providing clean water allows the children in Africa to have improved nutrition, better overall health, and better quality of life.  It also allows the children to go to school instead of spending their days fetching water.  My goal is to raise $100 for every mile that I run, which makes my goal $1,310.  I am super excited about this opportunity and I appreciate your support!

ooh la la

Where has time gone?!  I can't believe my baby girl is almost 3 months old.  She is starting to get the cutest little personality.  My heart might explode I love her so much.  


Rockbox recently reached out to me to see if I was interested in trying out their service for a couple months.  I was pretty excited to receive my first box in the mail, and it did not disappoint!

For those of you who are not familiar with this company, Rocksbox allows you to rent unlimited designer jewelry for $19 a month!  How does it work?

1.  Become a shine insider and take a style survey.  You can also add items to your "wishlist" if you see certain pieces you would like to receive.

2.  Get 3 pieces to wear on loan based on your style survey.

3.  Return your pieces at any time and receive 3 new pieces.  Each 3 piece set is worth about $200.

With 5 million weddings to attend this year, I am absolutely loving the idea of this service.  Being a personal trainer and full time mom, I don't own a lot of statement pieces.  I received my first box in the mail last week and I was so excited to wear my jewelry on Mother's Day!  I was in love with all 3 pieces that they sent me and have worn them several times since I received my box just one week ago!  One major bonus is that if you fall in love with a specific piece, you have the option to purchase it at a discounted price!

Rocksbox has been kind enough to offer my readers one free month when you use the code haleyhenxoxo!  I would love to hear your thoughts if you try it out!

Mother's Day Weekend Recap

I had a very special first Mother's Day weekend, one I will never forget!  I think Mother's Day might be my new favorite holiday, because being Maddy's mommy is the best thing that has ever happened to me!  I also love getting presents...just being honest here! ;)  

My fun weekend started Saturday morning.  My husband and I took the body pump class at our gym followed by a sprint interval workout around the track.  I am so happy Maddy is finally old enough to go to the kids club at our gym, I really missed working out with my man!  After our workout I took a photography class all day with my sister-in-law.  It was so much fun to finally learn how to use my new DSLR camera that my husband bought me for Christmas.  We learned so much new helpful information, but it's all very overwhelming!  I think I might sign up to take a few more classes, and hopefully you will start to notice some photography improvement on my blog :).


Sunday morning was a special morning at church, we had a dedication for our baby girl!  It was so special to dedicate our baby to Lord on Mother's Day.  I will never forget standing in front of our church making a promise as parents to raise our baby to love Jesus!   After church we went to the in-laws for brunch with the family.  We ate tons of food and opened cards and presents.  Scooter and Maddy got me a Kate Spade cross body purse, he always knows exactly what to get me!  Or maybe it was the email I sent him with a link to  After our workout later that day, we went to dinner at one of our favorite mexican food restaurants.  During dinner I realized that the last time we ate there was the night I went into labor!  Funny how the last two times I have been there was the day I gave birth and Mother's Day! Overall, it was an amazing weekend and I feel so blessed to be Maddy's mommy.
