Where have I been???

Well, I have been here! Busy, busy, busy!

I started a workout/diet with my new friend, Genie. She is a former Marine and is currently finishing her Bachelor's degree to open her fitness training business. She is amazing! A week and a half ago she sat down with me and we worked out a diet plan. I am GREAT with diet plans. I have no problems sticking with it to a "T". And then... we discussed the workout plan. Eesh. When someone says that they want to "thrash" you during a workout, I bet that they aren't lying! Genie thrashes me for an hour each day. I have never done so many lunges, bear crawls, jumping jacks, sprints, ab workouts in my life! But in a week I have dropped a pant size and have lost 7.5 lbs! I am so proud!! We are doing a 12 week plan and the last day just so happens to fall on my birthday! Like I told her, it's not about losing the weight. I can diet and lose weight just fine on my own. It's the workouts that I need help with. I want to be fit. I am super excited about my new change! Oh, and Robert says that there are times that he sees her outside yelling at me and he just wants to tell her to "leave me alone, that I am fragile!" Ha! I love that boy!

Not only is she my personal trainer, but she has become such a great friend. She and Robert, I swear, were separated at birth. They are just alike. And I am just like her husband. Funny, huh? I think we are such good friends because we do have that balance. And it doesn't help that they have an adorable little boy who fits in perfect with my two boys!! :)

We have also been attending many playgroups. They have been fun and I know Thompson LOVES being around lots of kids.

Other than that, that is what has been keeping me so busy. I don't even think I have taken a picture lately!

A few important things...

Like, The Bachelorette!!


I might have cried... like a baby... watching tonight's final episode! If you remember correctly, I picked Chris L. and Roberto as my top two! And we all know that Roberto was my favorite. Well, well, well... little Miss Alli picked Roberto!!! Yay!!! It was actually very sweet and I love the two of them together. I am even more excited that they are moving to sunny San Diego! Maybe I can run into them one day and tell them that I had him picked from the first time she saw him. (I bet I will be the only person who EVER tells them that! ha!)

And now for a weekend recap...

We had an awesome weekend! We have went out and ate at so many good restaurants. One of my faves is Famous Dave's. It's a BBQ place that we have back home. Well low and behold, they have one here! Robert is in LOVE! He declared it the best BBQ he has ever eaten. Score! And on Saturday morning we went to Mimi's Cafe and had breakfast. It was yummy too.

Tomorrow, I am taking the boys back to the playgroup. I can't wait to watch them. On Sunday, we went to church and they had a nursery for the boys. Thompson went to the 2 year olds room and Brycen went to the baby nursery. I didn't know if Robert was going to leave them or not, he didn't want to let them go. :( But when we picked them up, we knew that they had been well taken care of. Thompson, of course, didn't want to leave and threw a fit the whole way out that continued for about 15 minutes. Brycen was an angel, like always! So, I can't wait to see them tomorrow, especially Brycen. I want to see if he is taken with other kids the way he is with his big brother.

Robert started his off cycle and I love this part of his job. We have enjoyed spending time together over the past few days. It definitely makes up for the time he has to work so much.

Not too much else has been going on. I know that the weather has been insanely HOT back in Arkansas. I am so glad that it is actually pretty cool here. The past few days it has been right at about 70 degrees. (Don't hate me!) I love it! We haven't made it to the beach again, but hoping to sometime soon! Robert took Thompson fishing today. Brycen was napping so I just enjoyed the quiet time. I caught up on the dishes, the picking up of the toys, and all the things that I neglect once the weekend hits.

Hope everyone had an awesome Monday!

I will do a post tomorrow with some pictures! Promise!!
