My only wish for this weekend is that the weather is much nicer than last weekend! Last Saturday, we had a tornado warning beep through on our phones and I was like “What do I do?!” We found out later that there indeed was a tornado and it touched down not far from us and traveled 4 miles. The news shared this photo of a tree branch that had fallen directly on a car while driving. Luckily, the person was just fine.
Needless to say, that was enough to convince me never to live in the Midwest. At least with hurricanes, we have days to prepare…with a tornado, I was picking babies up asking Brett what I was supposed to do with them lol.
On a happier note, we have booked a little weekend trip to Disney World in May. We knew we would want to go to the Flower & Garden Festival before it ends and finally decided on a weekend the other day. I’ve already begun using these Mickey Countdown stickers (from Pretty Sheepy – my shop on Etsy) to countdown to our mini-trip in my planner!
…and of course I had to start planning what I want to eat at the festival!
We are attempting to have a tomato plant! Brett found it at Costco for a really good price and it even came with the marigolds already (to keep away bugs). I’ve been really impatient, constantly asking Brett when the tomatoes are going to be ready to eat…but I’m glad it’s still alive since I do not possess a green thumb.
Aubrey is 8 months old and moving around the house like a crazy baby. I’ll have a 7-8 month update post once her 8 month photos are ready, but in the meantime I will say she literally crawls everywhere. Everywhere.
It was extremely nice the other day, so Trent & Aubrey played in their new kiddie pool out back while Brett mowed the lawn. Cute little baby girl swimsuits? I die.
T25 has been intermittent, but not because I’m not working out, I’m just mixing T25 with running on the treadmill, since not only do I want to lose weight, but I have a half-marathon to prepare for and need to work on slowly increasing my pace and distance. A big motivator for me this week was that Brett has joined me and has been running too. He restarted the C25K app (I decided to do my own thing) and said it has worked great on the treadmill so far. I was amazed and proud at how I fit in a session on the treadmill at 10:45pm yesterday with a to-do list left to accomplish afterward. Now, I just need to find a good solution to music. I’ve tried Amazon Music, Pandora, and Milk and I feel like I spend half my workout flipping through channels or skipping songs and then some have ads. I think I may need to just buy songs I know I like and add them to the iPod or phone. What service/method do you guys like doing to listen to music?
Here are some links to things I found interesting this past week:
He forgot the part about camera flashes on dark rides, but yes-yes-yes to all of these
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
