Playing catch up

Where in the world have I been!?!? I didn’t realize that I have blogged in three days. Maybe because a lot hasn’t happened, or MAYYBBBEE its because I have been working and then watching the Olympics WAYYYY to late.

Some things that have happened over the past few days…..

My parents are getting their bedroom put back together! It is starting to look great! (I know my dad is ready to be done. He is working non-stop)

Andrew is losing teeth like no tomorrow! But I’m glad he won’t be the only 2nd grader without teeth haha

I found this quote on pinterest as well

Mr Flowers update: For someone I haven’t even met yet, there is definitely a connection. I love talking to him and I can’t wait to meet him August 16. That is the plan right now haha

Question for you:

Which Olympic sports are you watching?

-I am watching swimming and gymnastics

Is it cooling down anywhere in this country?!!?!?

-It was 103 here!!!

PIYO and Giveaway winners!!

Man. I have been all over the place! Yesterday, I got up at 4:30 am again to complete Week 4 before my 12 hour shift. I felt great yesterday getting up early and all day I never felt sluggish. I think I found my new workout time haha. WHO AM I!?!?!?

I then went to my parents, and watched the Opening Ceremony with my parents and my “second family” the Cupp family, that have been my parents neighbors since I was 12. They are family to me, and have been through so much with me the past 15 years! We had a blast talking till 10. We just had to watch the United States walk into the ceremony.

They always look like they belong on a yacht. But, I guess that it just Ralph lauren’s style. What do you think of their outfit?

Then this morning, I meet Annie at the gym for a 15 run on the treadmill and then a piyo class. I haven’t taken a class at the gym for awhile. This is a combination of pilates and yoga. It was awesome! My legs were shaking the whole time, but there was also lots of stretching!
