Hello Friday! I am checking in on this beautiful and sunny Friday with my favorites from the week. It has been a wonderful week where we have enjoyed warm weather, sunshine, playing outside and grilling! I just love warm weather- and so do my munchkins.
I have a lot to do today, so let’s get right to my favorites from the week.
Favorite Munchkin Moment
It is hard for me to choose just one this week: with the nice weather we have been enjoying time outside and of course our first officially ice cream trip of the year for free cone day. The two love the sunshine and warm weather just like their mommy and want to be outside as much as possible- I am not complaining! We have enjoyed walks around the block, bike rides, time at the park and of course just hanging out in the back yard running around.
I can’t forget about the couple of priceless hours of one-on-one time I had with M while C was at school. He joined me at the doctor’s office, for lunch and a little outside play time. We soaked up our time together and he even wanted to get out of his high chair and eat lunch right next to me. I didn’t oblige! He is looking and acting so big and I just want time to freeze for a minute.
It is rare that I get sore and it is even more rare that I get sore from my own classes. This week I surprised myself with an awesome (if I do say so myself) workout at my “On the Ball” class on Tuesday. At this class we used the BOSU, a medicine ball and dumbbells and I am not sure what it was, but my glutes were on fire on Wednesday- I loved it!
Anyone else loving the fresh strawberries right now? They have been my absolute favorite thing to eat… and C’s too. We have gone through 4 cartons of strawberries this week. We may or may not have also made hillbilly fondue (you know, melted chocolate chips in a bowl to dip your strawberries in) a couple of times this week.
This post from Finding Joy was just what I needed to read and I think I need to read it often. The post Why the Messy Sink is Normal is a great one for all moms. Give yourself some grace, appreciate even the messes of motherhood and head on over and check out that post.
I finally joined the rest of the world and my dear friend Tracy bought me a vegetable spiralizer for my birthday and I love it! I have used it three different times this week. It changed the world of sweet potato fries, I used it to add more veggies to our Pad Thai with spaghetti squash, and I sliced a bunch of veggies together and sprinkled them with parmesan cheese to eat along side my pulled pork. I love it!
I am a true believe that warmth and sunshine make life just a little sweeter and this week there was a whole lot of truth to that. As the grass gets greener and the flowers start to bloom, we love being outside, grilling for dinner and enjoying some much-needed Vitamin D after a long winter. Here is to hoping Old Man winter has left for good. Enjoy your weekend, fit friends.
Your turn- tell me!
How does your lifestyle change wants it warms up outside?
