Ever since I took a step back from blogging, I feel like I haven’t had much of a chance to just sit back and chat with you guys about what’s going on around here. Grab a cup of coffee or tea or whatever your drink of choice is, and let’s catch up!
After Christmas and my sister’s wedding at the beginning of January, getting back into the groove of normalcy and routine was a little rough. It almost felt like there was an ongoing party from Thanksgiving up until the beginning of January, so when real life hit again, it was a little sad! But, we are back to it now and I’m actually enjoying the routine of things again.
We are still doing MOPS again this semester, which is truly a big part of my mom life. Some of my very best mom friends are in that group, and I treasure our play dates and moms’ night outs together. It also keeps us busy! We have our official MOPS meetings every other Tuesday morning, I have my leadership meetings once a week, and we have regular playdates and other activities. If you aren’t part of a community of moms, I HIGHLY recommend getting plugged into one. It’s been such a blessing to me and my family!
Speaking of motherhood, my soon-to-be “threenager” Hunter has been giving me a run for my money lately. That kid … he can be the sweetest, funniest kid one minute, and then suddenly he turns into a little monster that likes to test his limits like no other. God is absolutely teaching me patience through this phase of motherhood – let me tell you! Thankfully the weather has been pretty glorious around here (don’t hate me), so we’ve been using up a lot of energy at nearby parks, playgrounds, and the zoo.
Little Reese just continues to light up our life. Her smile is the most contagious thing … and I am continually reminded of the fact that it IS possible to love another little human being as much as I love my first. She’s showing signs of teething though, which I’m not quite ready for, but I guess I don’t have much choice over that one!
I’ve been putting a lot of time into ramping up my fitness business, and it’s only going to continue, which I’m really excited about! We are starting our first “couples bootcamp” on February 15 using the newest Beachbody program, Master’s Hammer & Chisel, which is a super effective and fun program. I’m also super stoked to share some fun news with you later tonight on Instagram (follow me if you don’t already –> @foodnfitdiaries), so stay tuned for that!
I’m still teaching my beloved BODYPUMP classes a few times per week, which truly just makes my heart happy. It’s my “me time” that allows me to do something I love for myself while also helping others! It’s pretty much a win all around in my book.
What else, what else? Oh! We are looking forward to updating some things around our home and getting going on some fun home projects. We need a new pool fence, we’re planning on repainting the interior of our house, and hopefully getting the exterior painted as well. Fresh, new paint is magical, so I’m excited to see how it all turns out!
Well, I think that about sums things up for now! We are busy bees around here, but that’s kind of how I like it!
What are you guys up to?! Anything new happening? Please share!
