What a year 2016 has been!
I started the year preparing for my first International bikini competition which was at the Arnold Classic in Ohio. It was such an amazing experience to be on that stage with some unbelievable competitors from all over the world. The girls were so inspirational and to be stood next to them was so surreal. And then to place 9th was just so unexpected and like a dream some true.
I then featured in Flex magazine twice. This was another goal of mine for the year so another massive achievement.
Me and Mark then decided that now was the time to have another baby as we didn’t want a massive age gap between our children so competing was on hold. Luckily, I fell pregnant straight away.
Me and Bailey took a trip to Florida with my Mum and Dad. This was my 5th time there. Its my favourite place to go. My Mum and Dad love it just as much as I do and now so does Bailey. We will definitely have to go again in a few years with the baby.
Mark then surprised me and Bailey with a holiday in Dubai at the Atlantis. Another favourite holiday destination of mine. It’s such a stunning place and our suite was lovely.
Then to finish off the year my man made my 30th birthday the best day ever. I came downstairs to my dream watch. A rolex with lots of diamonds and hidden in the box was my engagement ring. I still can’t believe we are engaged. I never thought this day would come. Mark went to so much effort to make my birthday special and I don’t think it could ever be topped. My ring is so perfect. He knew I wanted it classic and elegant and it is better then I could ever imagine. I have been teasing him for a while saying make sure my Rolex matches my ring but never imagined that I would get one of them for my birthday, never mind both.
Now to look forward to 2017. I’m still pregnant and can’t wait to meet my little boy and see if he looks just like his big brother.
And I can now plan my wedding day!!!
