The Last Three

5.25.2016

I just got back from a run, which is something I haven't done in at least a week. 

I just haven't felt like it for some reason, and so instead of beating myself up about it, I said to myself, "Self, you're an adult and you don't have to go running if you don't want to." Instead, I have been doing some at-home workout videos on YouTube that have kicked my butt. I did Jillian Michaels "Shred It with Weights" level 1 and my legs were sore for two days after. Yesterday I did a twenty-minute core strength yoga video, and today my abs hurt every time I coughed, which was a lot because I have a cold thing going on right now that I can't seem to shake.

None of the above is related to this post, by the way. I just thought you might be interested in my recent attempts at being physically active, which is an attempt to combat the half batch of chocolate chip cookies I consumed over the weekend. That is absolutely not an exaggeration.

I didn't have a post planned for the rest of the week, but instead of leaving you hanging I thought I would share the last three pictures I've taken with my iphone. Call it a quasi coffee date/what's new post. Sorry not sorry that these all include my baby.

One.
I am still using my lunch hour every single day to drive to the daycare and visit R. It absolutely makes my entire day when I see her sweet face, and I often try to take a picture to send to Jordan. This was from yesterday.

Two.

(Also taken yesterday.) We have a CRAWLER. It started about a week ago, and she is on the move, people! We moved everything from the bottom of the coffee table, and her most recent trick is to crawl under it and back out again. This was taken on the exit. Don't mind the yellow bath duckie in the background. We definitely do not put her in it and drag her around the house. Nope, we sure don't. I swear.

Three.
This picture cracks me up because her head looks giant and her legs look insanely long. I don't know. This was taken on Saturday. We took a trip to Target and found some discounted swimsuits, which were even cheaper after 20% off swimwear on cartwheel plus 5% off with my Red Card. I bought Miss R two suits for this summer, and I can't wait to take her to the pool!

p.s. You may have noticed that my blog got a makeover! I have had the same layout forever and thought it would be fun to mix it up a bit. It's simple, but I kind of love it. I am working on organizing more of my posts and pages, but feel free to search by topic in the menu above or by label on the sidebar. There is also a search bar if you want to find something specific.

We are over the hump, friends! It's all downhill to Memorial Day. We can do this!

What's one of the most recent pictures you've taken with your phone?

  3. Crawling? That is such a big milestone.

    I've been doing the at-home workout video thing for the past few months and I've discovered I love lifting weights. Who knew? Some of those videos are intense, though. I have had several painful days as a result. I understand completely! :)

    1. Do not send me pictures of the snake or I will have to burn my computer to the ground. I hate those things above all else.

  8. Aww, I love all these photos! Especially the one of your expert crawler! My phone is filled with face-swap photos from my cousin's high school graduation party last Sunday! Haha!

  9. If you like doing yoga check out Yoga with Adriene on YouTube (if you haven't already.) She is the best!! Also I know you already know this, but R is adorable!!!

    1. It kind of is! She's so funny now that she's crawling. The other night, all three of us were lying on the floor, and suddenly she just starts crawling away, and Jordan and I were like, hey, we're over here! lol.

  11. i have been super behind on blog reading so when i started to catch up i noticed the new look but i thought maybe i had been going crazy lol. looks good! that photo of her going through the coffee table is fabulous. this is such a fun post! i don't want to go running today, i think i might take your advice and tell myself i'm an adult and can do what i want (and eat another piece of cake that is sitting in the kitchen at work right now).

  13. We had that same ducky bath tub, and I have a picture of Em sitting in it in on the floor of our family room. I mean, who doesn't like riding in a duck?

    You should check out Blogilates on youtube! I love her pilates videos, I do them almost daily at this point.

    PS: Love the new blog look!

  15. I love the new layout! And your life is changed big time now that you have a mover! Ahhhh! Get ready Mama. Haha. New adventures await. :)

  16. She really does look like I different baby in that last photo, but still adorable obviously :)

  17. I love the blog's new look. Did you do it yourself or get all fancy and hire somebody? (When I redesigned mine a year ago it took For. Ev. Er. because I'm too cheap to hire someone who actually knows what they're doing.)

    Good luck with your crawler, you're going to have great pictures now because she's going to get stuck in all kinds of weird places.

    Also, I love Jillian Michaels. I'm actually excited to get the green light from my OB at 6 weeks postpartum so I can start 30-Day Shred again. Of course then I will actually start doing it and hate every minute of it.
