What Made Me Smile This Week

Happy November everyone!!

And no, I don’t believe it. I’m currently sitting in a t-shirt and shorts as it is 70+ degrees right now. Oh Texas, always keeps it interesting.

 But guys, I am so excited for the holidays this year.  A lot of this has to do with the fact that Charlotte is able to participate and understand a little more about Christmas season. There are SO many kid friendly activities around our neighborhood and I’m making my list of to-dos already. 🙂

Halloween

The cutest Dorothy and Lion I have ever seen. {I know I’m a little biased, but they are pretty adorable!} This was the first time we went Trick or Treating door to door, and I wasn’t sure how it would go. They got the hang of it real quick once they realized they get candy after saying “trick or treeeaaaat.”

Starbucks Holiday Cups

I know, I know. It’s not Thanksgiving yet, but I can’t help but get sucked into all the seasonal fun!

Pop Pilates Park Classes

In addition to teaching at a corporate gym 2x a week, I also started teaching Pop classes at a park in town! Everyone that has taken so far, has loved the class, which makes me SO happy. Plus having some “me time” to start off the weekend is excellent.

I know it takes me sooooo long to finish a book these days, but I’m stoked about this one.  My library has it, and having a deadline will hopefully keep me more accountable in my reading management. The last book I read was “The Couple Next Door”  by the same author, and I loved it.  I’m sure this one will be a page turner as well! Below is a quick summary taken off the Amazon site:

Karen and Tom Krupp are happy—they’ve got a lovely home in upstate New York, they’re practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day, Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished—her car’s gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse—complete with phone and ID—behind.

There’s a knock on the door—the police are there to take Tom to the hospital where his wife has been admitted. She had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town.

The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes.  Still, she’s mostly okay—except that she can’t remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good.” 

That’s all for now. Thank you for stopping by!

 

What is something that’s making you smile this week??

Is it October already??

So I just realized that next week our little Donovan will be 5 months! 5 months, that’s basically half of a year. Whew the time really is flying by!

Now I feel like I might be jinxing it by putting this in writing, but our little man has been sleeping better at night! I still nurse him around 3 or 4am but besides that woke up he is doing much much better. I still try to get into bed around 9:30 so that I get a decent stretch of uninterrupted slept until feeding time. So we are getting there….there was a time that I did not think that was ever going to happen. Phew

Well I can’t say there is anything new going on with us, haha the same crazy days but we are gradually getting into somewhat of a routine. Our outings are still limited to the morning times bc of Donovan’s naps, but between our moms club & stroller strides playgroups we always have something on the agenda!

Besides the kiddos…what’s going on with me??

I’m finally trying to get back into a regular running routine, with the temps going down it is much more manageable. I got up to 4 miles last weekend, which was tough but felt great knowing I could do it.  I know it takes time to get back to your pre-baby body but it sure is frustrating when you don’t exactly feel like yourself.  I’ve been eyeing these running shoes for awhile…..some new workout gear always motivates me to get my butt moving!

Also for the month of October, I’m trying to take part in the 31 Day Challenge from Tone it Up. I printed out the calendar and left it out in plain site so I’m reminded of it even on the days where I feel like doing nothing! So hoping I notice somewhat of a difference by the end of the month!!

I’m also so excited….I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Emily Ley’s book: Grace not Perfection. I’ve been following Emily on Instagram for a couple years and was excited to hear that she wrote a book. I think it’s going to be a good one, and I should get my copy tomorrow- woo! Now if only I had some time to read….hmm, I’ll work on it! 🙂
