Happy Memorial Day!
It was a gorgeous weekend here weather wise! The 585 has finally broken its streak of rain and cold. It may almost be June but we are so grateful that the sun has arrived and to get outside and feel its magical powers!
I hit up a Zumba class first thing Friday morning and then headed over to grab my niece for the weekend. These three goofballs had SO much fun together and got along so nicely.
Joe had off so we took them to the Zoo (which Joe and I honestly don’t love seeing the animals caged up not living their in their natural habitats…but it is exciting to show the kids exotic animals.)
I have some exciting news to share too! My friend Cathy with Tastefully Simple asked me (one of two!) people to do a 14 Day Reset Beta testing. It’s a low carb meal plan and they provide all the recipes, snacks and menu plan! I paid $150 for TS products (which I already know that I love!) and I will have to grocery shop for produce and meats etc. I cannot wait to document and share my experience!
I took these three monkeys to the mall so that the girls could get matching outfits. Of course they had just had lunch before we left, but were still HUNGRY for pretzels!
They also picked out a BFF necklace–do any of you remember these?! LOL
I felt a little bad because bubs wanted in on all the action, but as you may know, girls just have a special bond and secret handshakes. I know he’ll have a buddy one day too, but he was always asking to be included and “take my picture too” it was so sweet.
In other news, my sister Brianna had her first Body Building competition! She placed 3rd and although I couldn’t be there, I cheered her on in spirit! So proud of you girl!
The kids jumping for joy that Aunt Bri placed!
Saturday night I took some “do you time” in the kitchen. I had my group coaching call and brought up one of my memories that had ‘bullet holes’ so it was important that I spent some time enjoying. I’ll be sharing more on my bullet holes soon! Stay tuned!
I cooked up a bunch of veggies, peeled, sliced & roasted potatoes and had a pot roast in the crockpot. I enjoyed some of my favorite (inexpensive) Pinto Grigio Cavitt and played some tunes. The kitchen has always been my happy place and cooking/chopping/sautéing/stirring is always so therapeutic to me.
Joe got home from work and Brooke’s been practicing to ride her bike without training wheels. She’s making it a bit of a distance before she tumbles, but I snapped this shot because it just makes me so happy. Even though he’s still in his work clothes, he jumped right out of his truck to try and help her. THIS is the man I married–ALL IN! He doesn’t care that his nice Banana Republic clothes could get ruined.
We also had a little spa night! I grabbed a few face masks and put them on the girls–Brooke thought it was the best thing ever!
Sunday we wore the Old Navy dresses! I actually scooped mine up last year, and the girls honestly picked theirs out first and I then said, I have one just like it! They were so excited to all match and it made for quite the photo! We hit up The Revelry for Brunch.
How cute are they?
I told hubby we needed a selfie.
Again, Bradley wanting to be in on the action!
And what’s a #brunch without a mimosa? Just sayin.
Adri went home and we took a little Sunday drive. The bay was a little cool, but it was so pretty out.
He’s always loved standing on rocks…
My sweet girl. She actually got to feed them as some nice girls next to us had a big bag of bird seed/food to share.
Joe had to work all day Memorial Day but I enjoyed my time with the kiddos. I had my coaching call in the morning (made sure to grab a Starbucks Latté so I could focus/recall alllll the bullet holes) and then we hit up a park, grocery store and did household chores. Nothing crazy, and I felt rather depleted after recalling some ridiculous stuff I’ve been through. We all have, I’m no different. I’ll be opening up more on all that in the upcoming week, so if you’ve been feeling like learning more about the life coaching journey, stay tuned! I’m going to be as open and transparent as I can be!!
Have a beautiful week my friends.
