This last week has been so busy, but all good things (except for an ear infection). Tons of get togethers, my hubby’s birthday, and lots of work. May is usually really busy with orders because people are ordering teacher signs for the end of the year gifts and Mother’s Day signs. But I was able to relax a bit and have a good play date with one of my best friends yesterday and am coming up for air today to write a post.
First, let me start off on a depressing note. I went to the gym, you know to tackle my monthly goals, and it is just sad how out of shape I am. Before graduating college, I don’t think I went longer than one week without working out…my entire life. Even when we had time off of soccer in college, I still worked out to stay in shape. This was the first time after having Maddox, that I worked out! 10 months post partum and I finally hit the gym. I got there and ran/walked for about 15 minutes. Did some lunges/squats (like maybe a few sets) and started feeling the sting while I was doing my exercises. The sting you feel after your workout when you’re done. I woke up the next day completely sore in my legs. It was sad. Just sad. I know I’ll get past this point, but I couldn’t believe how out of shape I’m in. Wish me luck.
Saturday night we went over to Ryan’s parents house to celebrate his birthday. I managed to get only these photos. We had steaks and ice cream cake. I still need to share the recipe for the ice cream cake! It’s the best. How cute is Maddox and my brother-in-law’s dog?
Maddox passed out on the way home and I thought he was precious…I didn’t want to move him!
The next day was Mother’s Day. We hosted a Mother’s Day lunch at our house this year with my family and Ryan’s family. I had to run a last minute errand before church, so I bought myself a Starbucks “from” the boys.
Once I came home, the boys were up getting ready for church. Maddox just didn’t look right, so Ryan stayed home with him (he slept the entire time on his chest), while Beckham and I headed to church. I love Mother’s Day church service, so Ryan let me take him (Ryan usually takes B if Maddox is sick).
After church, we headed home and had both families over for lunch. I served pulled pork sandwiches. Everyone brought some things to complete the lunch, so that was nice not having to prepare it all. It worked perfectly and everything was delicious! I was glad to take that off my mom’s plate as she usually hosts our family get togethers. And it was nice to have my in laws over and combine it (side note: our parents knew each other long before I was born…my mom and Ryan’s dad sang in a band together).
I was busy prepping and enjoying company that I only managed to get this picture! I love these two and am so thankful to be their mom! Life is getting sweeter.
My mom! She is seriously the coolest! She’s become my best friend and I’m so thankful God chose her for me!
He’s just so happy! Oddly enough, we had to take him to the doctor on Monday as I sensed he had an ear infection. He did, but we got some antibiotics and he’s only been fussy that Sunday morning. I’m falling more in love with this guy as time goes on!
These are my tired eyes (thank you concealer) on Tuesday as Maddox and I ran some errands to get some gifts for Ryan! I was so stinking tired and when I pulled up to Starbucks to pay, the computer had a glitch when reading my phone, so he gave me the drink free! Just what I needed that day. I’ve been going on 4-5 hours of sleep this past week. Clearly, I’m failing on my sleep goals this month…again!
Tuesday evening after swim lessons, we headed to a local pizza place for Ryan’s birthday. This was our view. Beckham played at this park after dinner and wore himself out.
I told Beckham to smile and this is what he gave me!
And then there’s this cutie!
We came home, boys took their bath, and then we gave him our gifts! We got him some Reef sandals, an ice cream maker, an iHome alarm clock, Rangers t-shirt, and a Smoothie King gift card. Ryan is typically really hard for me to shop for, but the ideas kept flowing this year. He wanted Reef sandals and that was it. I feel like I was able to surprise him with some gifts he’s wanted, but didn’t ask for, so it was pretty neat to watch him open his gifts.
My little sister just got in town last night, so we have some festivities planned with her this weekend, as well as a birthday date for Ryan on Saturday. Things have calmed down a bit and I’m excited for a fun weekend!
