It’s Spring!

20 Mar

Happy first day of Spring! It sure felt like it today, the sun was out and the sweater came off. Kind of a bummer I had to work the better part of the day and then run errands on my way home. Oh well, hopefully it’s nice this weekend. My Mother in Law is flying in Friday night which we’re all pretty excited about, she’ll be here for the weekend for Caleb’s Preschool Talent Show and silent auction. It’s insane how much preparing and fundraising we have already done and it’s about to go into overdrive. Tomorrow I have to bake cookies for the bake sale at the Talent Show, Thursday we have Gav’s speech assessment with a speech therapist, Friday we have a full run through of the Talent show and then Saturday we have to be there an hour early to help set up. I’m hoping that Sunday night the hubby and I will be able to sneak off to see The Hunger Games-fingers crossed.

My hubby and I started a new round of P90X together along with following the nutrition guide. If I feel brave enough I might, MIGHT, post the before pictures. We are going to make an effort this time to track our progress, meaning take those pictures throughout, take measurements, step on the dreaded scale etc. It’s so nice working out together since we don’t get to do too many things just him and I. I’m already sore, I know I push myself so much harder when he’s working out with me.

Haven’t gotten too much sewing done, mostly just been working on my hexies. And I’ve been keeping up with my March photo along. I’m gonna go ahead and join the April one too, it’s so much fun! Here are my last couple days of pictures.

That’s my little Brother sewing machine. I’m definitely wanting an upgrade but I love this little guy.

This was a before and after shot. I took the first one on my way to work at 6am and the second is when I got home today around 5pm. I was basically standing in the same spot for both. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll have some pictures to upload of our cookie baking session. I’m going to let Caleb help me this time since they are for his school, we’re making Chocolate chip Oatmeal cookies. Yummy. I’m gonna try really really hard not to eat any-well, maybe I’ll just have one, it’s all about moderation right?



Happy St. Patty’s Day!

17 Mar

We kept it pretty low key here today/tonight. I worked this morning and then as soon as I got home the hubby went to work so I’ve been hangin with the boys all day, stuck inside due to the rain. I wanted to make corned beef and cabbage but I just knew the boys wouldn’t eat it, at least Gav wouldn’t and I didn’t feel like making two separate dinners so instead I went for making something green, which lead to pasta with pesto sauce. Of course the boys ate that right up and asked for seconds. Next year, however, I am making corned beef and cabbage. I wanted to do some kind of fun craft with the boys today since we were stuck inside but Gav decided to take the shortest nap ever and I had been up since 3:30am and wasn’t feeling it. I had to make myself an emergency pot of coffee to make it through to now. I have to be up again at 3:30 tomorrow morning to work so I will most likely not be sitting down at the sewing machine tonight, I really am going to try to get in bed in the next hour.

I was having some problems with my iPhoto not reading my iPhone so I haven’t been able to upload my march photo along pics. Well, today it worked and I was able to upload them, so here are the last 8 photos.

Just realizing right now I skipped a day. Oops.

Well that’s it, all up to date now. I really love Instagram and this photo along. By far my favorite photo so far is the sunglasses. I also took this one on the way home this morning from work and I’m loving it.

I love the rain, in moderation that is. Hope you all had a Happy St. Patty’s day and are keeping it safe!
