The start to year 29

Yesterday I celebrated My 29th birthday and let me tell you, it was amazzinngg!

The day started with breakfast with Andrew before he went to baseball camp.

While he was there I worked out.

T25 alpha has been amazing. I need to do a review.  I am not a beach body coach but, it’s good stuff.

I was then going to clean the basement. Exciting I kNow, but I love to organize. I stead I sat outside on the deck with a cup of coffee and caught up on emails and blogs.

It was pure bliss and definitely what I needed.

Next up was getting Andrew and going on an 11Mile bike ride

OH Where Oh Where have I been

Hi everyone. Again. I know it is been a really long time since I blogged, and  a few weeks before that I was gone as well. I guess life has just been taking over. Which is perfectly fine with me. I also have been trying to stay off the internet as much as possible. With Andrew on summer break, we have been doing lots of fun things together and staying busy. I try to give him as much attention as a can, and keep my phone away. Also,I have about ZERO energy at the end of the night (apparently I may have to wait a YEAR after surgery to get this all back. UGH.)

I know I have lots of new things to tell you guys! Especially about a new guy I have been seeing :) But here are just a few things Andrew and I have been up to……

    • 4th Of July with my family

image

    • Andrew’s last 3rd grade baseball game

image

    • Flowers from the new guy :)

image

    • Evil looking cat

image

    • Getting ready for the garage sale

image

    • Pool time

image

    • Andrew’s other baseball team, the Cardinals

image

    • First, wedding of the season, my mom braided my hair. With a messy bun in the back. I loved it!

image

So that is just ALITTTTLLE bit that has been going on here. Tell me, what is new with you?

Question for you:

What is the biggest most exciting thing that happened this summer so far?

 

 

Six Flags Summer

This summer Andrew and I visited Six Flags. Andrew was able to get free ticket through his reading program at school. We headed there early on a Monday had a lot of fun.

We only rode a few rides. neither Andrew or I are really interested in the fast roller coasters.
image

We of course headed to the waterpark and had a blast.

And last but not least, our tradition, ice cream 😄

Question for you.
Have you ever been to Six Flags?

Sam Baker 2014

While on my hiatus from bloggin, my family and I went on a short vacation just 2 hrs or so away……

My family and I have been going to Sam Baker State Park since I was around 4 years old.

We also went last summer. This year we had a larger group, and stayed in brand new cabins

Even though we were a few miles away from the others, the cabins were amazing!

I didnt take many pictures, I still only had my phone to take pictures, but I took this view from our cabin :)

It really helped to de-stress. We even went on a hike, which might have been alot for me and my belly, but I made it!

of course there was coffee :)

of course there was coffee :)

I promise I will now have better pictures, because my camera (which lens broke) is fix!

question for you:

Would you rather stay in a tent, cabin, hotel, or bed and breakfast?
