Random phone photos

Happy Monday everyone!

The weeks are flying by here in St Louis. Probably because of work, and always trying to stay on top of all the shit to stay busy.

I thought I would just share some of the RANDOM pictures I have on my phone. Its actually ridiculous…… but fun to see 🙂

QUestion for you:
What is one of your random pictures on your phone?

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

    • Andrew’s last 3rd grade baseball game

    • Flowers from the new guy 🙂

    • Evil looking cat

    • Getting ready for the garage sale

    • Pool time

    • Andrew’s other baseball team, the Cardinals

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

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?

 

 

A day in the life: kickboxing!

Hi everyone! The past few days have been crazy, fun, and busy. but I have to say, MY ENERGY IS RETURNING!!! I have had the week off, and I am determined to get things done around the house and get my workouts in! This is how my days have been lately…..

6:45 Wake up and eat breakfast with Andrew

8:00 Go over to my parents and take care of their animals (they are at the beach!)

My parents dog, riley and Mr bubbles. long lost friends

 

8:30 Start my 3 ten minute DVDs. I haven’t missed a day and I am feeling SO strong! I also love how they give me energy for the rest of the day!

9:30 Work on kitchen. I have been scrapping, sanding, and will some day start Repainting these darn things.

hot. mess.

hot. mess.

It has been taking HOURS a day! They better look AMAZING!!!

Then there is lunch, pick up Andrew, and homework. And then kickboxing! my cousin and I bought a groupon for a boxing/kickboxing class and it is an amazing class! I am sweating within the first ten minutes, and it is always fun (especially when I picture NOT nice people. they will remain nameless haha)

holy hot mess!

holy hot mess!

yep. so this week I have completed all the DVDs and two kickboxing classes. I feel amazing. I also have been eating really well, and my appetite has gone DOWN. not sure what that is about. Maybe that darn tumor. who knows! haha

So that is what I have been up to lately. I have also been trying to stay off the computer and away from the TV. Only once Andrew goes to bed, unless I need to check something fast. I am trying to check up on blogs, but it has been so nice to step away. My camera lens also broke, so these were taken with my phone, not too bad for a phone from the 90s haha.

I love my blog, so I will definitely keep the updates coming!

Question for you:

Do you find it hard to unplug?
Have you ever tried kickboxing?

Spring Wreath Making

I started this blog last week, but with everything going on (aka me not leaving my bed), it took the back burner. Now that I have moved to the couch, I am able to get a few things done haha.

ice for my neck

On a serious note, I am feeling better today. After about a week, things are starting to turn around 🙂 Now to come off the jelly and bread diet haha

~~~~~~~~

With time off from work, I made a list of what I wanted to do around the house. There are big and little odds and ends I have wanted to complete. I know that I wouldn’t be able to do a ton, but this way I had the list for when I was feeling 100%

One of the projects was a Spring wreath for the front door. Of course, saw it on pinterest

(source)

It was super easy, and with a Hobby Lobby coupon, it wasn’t too expensive!

I bought a couple bouquets of flowers (instead of one stem with one big flower~money saver!)

I cut each and stuck them in the wood wreath to make them look like one large flower.

I think it turned out great! And it brought some nice weather 🙂

I also had a buddy that was helping me

Question for you:

What is your favorite part of Spring?

Do you like to do crafts for your house?

 

 

Home Sweet Home

Over the past few weeks, Andrew and I have been staying with my parents at their home. Which is just a mile or so from my home. This weekend, we moved back

I am not sure where all this stuff came from! haha

I don’t think my parents cat wanted us to leave

YEP. That is Mr Bubbles drinking from the dripping shower

After moving and unpacking yesterday, and then errands today, I was beat. I tried to relax, but not as easy when I am all by myself.

Tomorrow, I have a follow up appointment with my surgery, so hopefully I will have lots of good news then 🙂

Question for you:

How many times have you moved?

How far away do your parents live?

 

Valentine’s Day 2014

Andrew and I had a pretty quiet but still fun Valentine’s Day and I hope you did too!

In the past, I have always REALLY disliked this day because I was single (now I dislike it because of all the pressure!) So instead, this year, I just tried to have a nice day with Andrew. It was pretty awesome

Earlier in the week, we printed minecraft valentine’s for his teacher and friends

Random photos

      The past few weeks have been a roller coaster of ups and downs, but I always love looking back at my camera and phone to find the random pictures that didn’t quite make the blog.
