Fun Things Friday!

The weekend is finally here!!!  Let’s jump right into some fun things for this Friday!

1.  Annabelle was traumatized by the Easter Bunny. She finally settled down for a picture when I sat in between her and the bunny. 


2.  She did enjoy her Easter basket though. The big hit…Elmo bubbles!



3.  Annabelle loves to play with and stand in her potty. Luckily, she doesn’t understand how to use it quite yet. ☺️


4.  I bought the 21 Day Fix DVDs. I’ve only done one workout so far because we lost the remote to our DVD player and I can’t move to the other workouts.  #losing.  I also tackled two Insanity workouts this week (cardio and strength/max cardio plyo) and man are they TOUGH!!!


5.  Post workout lunch…turkey, string cheese, and cucumbers and carrots.  Don’t worry…me and Annaballe shared some strawberry yogurt covered pretzels too. 


Have a great weekend and eat some ice cream!  PS I had a pint of Ben and Jerry’s at 11:30 pm last night. The struggle is real. 

Lots of pictures (of Annabelle) from last weekend!









Happy Belated Easter!

Annabelle meets the Easter Bunny

Annabelle has decided that she wants to party during the 4 am hour again…she stopped doing that for a few weeks and it was glorious.  Since I was super tired this morning, I missed out on yoga (sorry Andrea).  When I finally got up and moving, I made it to the gym for a workout.

Yesterday’s workout: (since I didn’t post it yesterday)

30 minutes on the elliptical at level 12

5000 meters on the rowing machine, level 10 – 500 meters with a 1:00 minute rest repeated 10 times.  FYI:  If you  have not tried the rowing machine, you really should.  It’s an amazingly great workout and I am so tired afterwards.

10 minutes on the stairmaster at level 14

Today’s workout:

30 minutes on the elliptical at level 12

3067 meters on the rowing machine, level 10 – row for 1:40 and then 20 second rest repeated 7 times

WOD – 10 burpees, 15 jump squats, 10 moving push ups,  15 mountain climbers, 15 tricep dips, 15 floor ski jumps, plank:  repeated 3 times

I worked out almost everyday while I was pregnant, but it was just to stay in some sort of shape and it made me feel good…nothing too intense.  It feels so good to now get in those workouts that kick my butt and I feel a few days later.

Chris played Mr. Mom while I was gone and he had AB bathed and dressed when I got home.  We had a big day planned…Annabelle’s first Easter Bunny visit!  This Easter Bunny was not as scary as some I have seen and AB seemed more interested in the lights on the ceiling than the bunny :).  Thanks for the Easter outfit Aunt CK!

Annabelle with Poppy and Grandses


After the Easter Bunny excitement, we had lunch.  I had a spinach salad with chicken, cranberries, grapes, walnuts, and gorgonzola cheese.  My mom and I also split some breadsticks.

The rest of the afternoon was spent napping and watching a few episodes of Wipeout.  I don’t care what anybody says, this show is hilarious.

My mom and I decided to go to the Fresh Market and we couldn’t help stopping in Athleta…we ended up buying eachother birthday presents :).


Just because she is so darn cute…


What do you think?

Do you think the Easter Bunny is a little scary looking?

What are your Easter plans?

Dinner with family 🙂
