Friday Recap

Hey y’all!  I hope you have had a fabulous week!  It’s been busy for us!  My birthday was on Monday so my family took me to a yummy dinner after work.

Joshua moved back to school yesterday.  This mama is sad.  His new dorm is so nice though!  I know he is going to have a great year! 

Work has been crazy, too.  I’ve worked out every day this week, even on my birthday, which I totally could have used as an excuse.  🙂  What better way to start my 42nd year! So, all in all, Life is great.

Tonight we’re going to a baseball game.  One of my favorite past times.

tomorrow is mom and Lori day.  We’re getting facial (her) and massage (me), then pedicures and finally a tea party at the English Tea House.  My FAVORITE!  I like to pretend I’m fancy and demure.  Of course, I’ll probably be in yoga pants instead of a pretty dress, since we’re going straight from our pampering.

Sunday we are joining some of my friends from high school at a bar on the river to watch a band.  I’m totally excited to see old friends!!

So there’s a recap of my week, since I slacked on all of my posts.  Is anyone reading these blog posts anyway?  If you are, comment below!  Let me know I’m not talking to myself!!

I know it’s not wednesday, but What’s up??  Work is insanely busy and I’m struggling to keep up!!  I’ll be good after tomorrow and then the craziness will start again 9/3.  Yikes!

  • We’re attending a benefit tonight for a coworkers 20 year old son who has inoperable brain cancer.  It breaks my heart!!!  Morning Glory donated a bracelet stack for the silent auction.  Everything helps, right?
  • We’re loving the Peloton!  Such a great investment, and less per month than our gym membership was!
  • Is it possible to fall more in love with your spouse daily?  Aaron is just amazing and I’m so madly in love with him.  He’s a wonderful husband and makes me happier than I ever thought I could be.
  • Our boy leaves a week from today for school.  This mama is NOT ready!!!!!
  • I miss my bestie.  We haven’t got to hang out in a couple of weeks.
  • I’m exhausted.  Work is just taking it all out of me.  I have been sneak eating the past two days.  Who does that hurt?  yeah, just me.  I need to learn how to NOT stress eat.  😦

That’s all for now.  Have a great weekend!! xoxo

What’s Up, Wednesday 8/7

What’s up? Another busy week over here!

  • We bought a Peloton bike! It came last Friday and Aaron and I have been riding every morning this week. Loving it so far! I hope this helps shed these last 40lbs.
  • We have family vacation with my family this weekend. I’m excited to get back to the beach and have fun with the teens. Water park, beach day, putt putt and biking.
  • Our first set of schools start Monday. I’m hoping everything runs smoothly. I’ve been busting my butt getting everything ready.
  • My babe goes back to school in 2 weeks. My anxiety is already starting. I’m going to miss my boy.

So, what’s up with you?

Weekly Menu 8/5

IMG_1351

The weekends don’t last.  That’s one of my favorite quotes from my uncle, and it’s so true.  I can’t believe it’s Monday again already.  I spent some time last night meal prepping for the week.  I grilled some chicken and made some brown rice pasta for salads, hard boiled some eggs (well, hubs did this) and prepped fruit for snacks.  I saved chicken for Aaron’s sandwiches and bagged up his veggie chips.

For dinner this week, this is our lineup:

M:  grilled chicken, roasted potatoes and carrots.

T: Tacos

W: chicken and rice with roasted veg

T: Gluten free tenders and sweet potato tots, with veg

F: We’ll be away for the weekend at the beach.  Most like Grotto’s pizza, so i’ll stick with salad and a slice of pizza or soup.

What’s on your menu?  I need some ideas to spice up our week!

 

What’s Up, Wednesday 7/31

What’s up??  I can’t believe that it’s already the end of July.  Seriously, where does the time go??  Josh will be leaving us to go back to school in 2.5 weeks, my school district starts the following week.  It’s just craziness around here!

  • I’m feeling like crap today.  My blood pressure plummeted while I was in the shower this morning and I blacked out.  Again.  This is so annoying!
  • We’re celebrating fathers day this weekend with a Joe Bonamasso concert and dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s steak house in Atlantic City.
  • We bought a Peloton and it’ll be delivered on Friday!!!  I am SO excited!!
  • Work is so busy and I’m stressing about how to get everything done…and my boss keeps scheduling meetings.  Gah!!

So, what’s up with you?
