Favorite thing about FIT4MOM: The ability to workout with my little in tow and being around other Moms.
When did you join FIT4MOM? August of 2016. We had just moved to Lake Forest Park and were hanging out a Horizon View Park when Rachel and Brenna recruited me to join a class.

That's a hard one. I'm a bit of a foodie so I enjoy a lot of foods.

I'm not much of a movie fan

You are given four free hours of babysitting, what would you do?
Probably get a pedicure and then meet a girlfriend for happy hour
What is your dream kid free vacation?
Anywhere with a warm, sunny beach

Probably same as above!
How has becoming a mother changed you?
I've learned to be much more patient. Or at least try!
What are three things you wish you could go back and tell yourself before having children?
"This too shall pass." A friend told me this when we were chatting about phases kids go through. Mila was about 10 months old so I wish I would have been told sooner!
Fondest childhood memory:
Endless summer days cruisin' the neighborhood with my two sisters and friends
