Happy Easter weekend! It's be a busy, fun filled week, and we're ready for more fun this weekend! But first...I'm linking up with the sweet ladies behind The Good Life, Carolina Charm, A. Liz Adventures, and Hello Happiness for 5 on Friday!Movie Workout: Disney's Frozen I'm really proud of my progress in the gym. I'm feeling stronger and have more energy at the end of the day (on most days!), and my clothes are fitting (and looking) better too! Although I've been able to make it to the gym or for a workout 3-4 times a week there are still days when it just does not happen. This is usually because we trade going to the gym in the morning for meeting friends at the park, soccer class or appointments. I was so excited to see that Tamara shared a great plan for working out while you let your kids watch the movie Frozen. Owen is pretty good about sitting to watch a movie or playing while watching one. Obviously this is something I would probably only use in a pinch, because after all, we're always trying to cut back on screen time, but it's nice to know there are options for when you can't get out of the house or workout during nap time ... or when you child no longer naps!
| 2 | I have been pinning up a storm on Pinterest lately, and honestly, I don't know what's gotten into me. Some of my favorite pins lately have been Owen related of course because I am always looking for new ways to keep us busy. And a little while back I wrote a post for Blog Her detailing five of my favorite Pinterest boards around for all things toddlers + creativity! Check them out! We've found some really fun activities.
| 3 | Owen's Easter basket is all ready to go for Sunday and we've got some fun plans for the weekend involving family, egg hunts, Mass, more egg hunts, Bloody Mary's and more family. It's bound to be a fantastic few days!
| 4 | We've had quite the busy week this week and it has been wonderful. Every time I start to feel rushed about all the things we're doing each day I remind my self of a little over a month ago when Owen had hand, foot & mouth disease and we were confined to our house for nearly two weeks. It's really nice to be busy and have friends to see!
Having said that, I wish I had more time to use the bathroom by myself... or at least not have to worry about where Owen is while I try to wash my hands. Yesterday he was in our room on the bed and I ran to the bathroom. As I washed my hands I saw him dash down the hall out of the corner of my eye... and when I went to find him I found that he had colored with a blue marker all over the wall. How he did that I'll never know. I'm super thankful for Google and Magic Markers today.
| 5 | I finished reading Pines (Wayward Pines Series, Book One) and it was great! Not my usual read, being a mystery, but it kept me wanting to keep reading the entire time and wondering what the heck was going on. Now I'm on to book two in the series!
We're off to the gym this morning and if all goes well for us there Owen and I are heading out somewhere fun before nap time! I hope you all have a happy Easter weekend with the people you love!
