Well, I am so relaxed from the past week I’ve had that I am not even sure where to begin!
Ok I’ll start with …the weigh in.
Well, I have been keeping myself in check since my last weigh in; eating real well and trying to be more active with my kids out in the yard. I haven’t had the opportunity to get to the gym much with my husband’s recent work schedule and other life events, since my last weigh in. So, when I got on the scale today, I was so nervous to look at the number. I haven’t weighed myself in a few days, either, which is not like me at all.
After convincing myself to get on the scale and to look, I smiled. I am down 1lb!! What a HUGE relief!! I do have a rough ‘diet’ related few weeks coming up, the Fourth and then vacation week, but I am going to ‘Nik Wallenda’ the cripe outta my days praying to keep losing!
Summer kicked off Friday, as you all know, and well, I am on cloud 9. This sunshine and heat is exactly what I want. Ok, I can go without this recent humidity and haze, but I am not complaining at all. I will take 90 degrees with humidity over bone-chilling temps any day!!
We had a super busy weekend, starting with Friday night. Right after work, we went over to my in-laws to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday. The girls got to stay up extra late, which doesn’t mean they sleep late the next morning. Unfortunately. My kids are early risers, and lack the ‘let’s sleep late for our parents’ gene. Well, it’s not that bad, I really shouldn’t complain. They get up and are ready to go every morning without issue. Which I’d rather have, than fighting them to wake up and get ready. It’s just one Saturday I’d love to sleep till 9AM with my husband like the old days!
Saturday, was a lot of fun. Though we screwed up our original plans of going to our local Lowe’s for the kids to make a craft. We never got the confirmation email, so instead of hanging out with the kids making a fun themed box, they got something to make at home with us. Which is fine, and I am holding onto for She’s Crafty Friday. We also booked them for another morning to make something in a week, which we did get a confirmation email for. So that will be a fun morning. After we got bounced from Lowe’s, we went onto our other plans, just a little earlier. We took the girls to see Monsters University. Which we all loved!! Pixar got this prequel totally right! (do they ever do anything wrong? NO!) And their new short film, The Blue Umbrella, knocked me off my feet. Wow. What imagery. What realism. So great. And yes of course, I cried. (Couldn’t help it!) And just talked about with my oldest.
Then following that, we had our good friends over for a BBQ, and for the kids to cool off in the sprinklers, and for us to cool off with some sangria! Man, I love sangria, lately, I think I am turning Spanish!
Then Sunday, we went to my daughter’s school friend’s birthday BBQ. It was a lot of fun and we were there for the whole day. The girls enjoyed themselves a ton, even in the heat. They had a DJ that gave out prizes for some fun games and dance contests. And I got to meet so many nice parents from her school. It was a good time. We followed that party by playing an hour in the sprinklers with the girls at home. It was super hot Sunday! We had a blast getting soaked till it got dark out. I forgot how fun a sprinkler can be, and the girls were ecstatic. At bedtime, they told my husband it was the best part of their weekend. Then my oldest said, the best part of anything. That melted me completely. I love my girls!
This is me Sunday. Anyone notice my tan!?
Also, my gf and I hit up Wingearsheek beach in Gloucester. I actually missed my two girls. Nooooo I am kidding! What a fun day soaking up the sun! The beach was absolutely beautiful and the water wasn’t too frigid. There weren’t a ton of kids, either, so we were happy. My gf is the perfect beach mate, cause we are so darn similar! Enough talking, lots of sunning, some soaking… perfect! And best of all!? Yes!! I have tan lines! I broke the ivory barrier!
The ONLY pics taken at the beach! And one is my friend’s that I snagged!
Have a great week everyone! xoxoxo
