Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! It was a pretty great one over here. And hey, guess what?! I actually remembered to pull out my camera and snap a few photos. Imagine that!
Our weekend began with a Diamondbacks baseball game with my parents on Friday evening. I grew up going to quite a few Diamondbacks games, and it had been awhile since I’ve been to one, so it was good to be back! I’m not a huge baseball lover, but I do enjoy going to the games in person. We also braved taking Hunter along which I was initially a little anxious about, but he actually did really well. We were out over an hour past his normal bedtime, and there wasn’t a whole lot of room for him to move around, so we were pleasantly surprised at how well he did.
And this is really big news –> I convinced Cody to come to a BodyPump class with me on Saturday morning! Cody is not a gym goer (or liker), so this is a big deal. He’s fairly active, but doesn’t do any sort of strength training, so I’ve been trying to convince him to try out a BodyPump class and/or do some at-home strength workouts a couple times a week. I *think* we’re moving in the right direction…fingers crossed! I didn’t teach this particular BodyPump class; we just went together which was kinda fun. Except of course the one time Cody agrees to try out a class, Hunter decides he wants nothing to do with the gym daycare. This hasn’t happened in ages, so I don’t know what the deal was. We ended up leaving early, but at least we got through about half the workout so Cody was able to get a little taste of BodyPump and he’s nice and sore, so I’d say my mission was accomplished.
I asked him what his feedback was, and he responded with something like, “Well, it wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t call it fun.” Ahhhh, c’mon Babe! It’s totally fun! I told him he should at least give it three chances, so we’ll see.
The rest of the afternoon consisted of pool time, working in the yard, and practicing some BodyPump. It was overcast and not quite as ridiculously hot as it has been, so we took advantage and got to work on some yard stuff. Cody is currently trying to remove a pine tree stump (the one my brother, stepdad, and him chopped down a few weeks ago), and then we have to get rid of a bunch of gravel to prepare for sod in the fall. It’ll be SO nice to have some grass back there!
Later in the afternoon we headed out to our church’s new member class. It was another great reaffirmation that we chose the right place to make our church home, so that was really encouraging. We officially have a sticker with the church name/logo on it for our car!
And even more awesome – in our class, we ended up sitting next to another couple that we randomly knew from Utah. The guy had played in the same basketball league as Cody, and we had no idea they recently moved to Arizona, let alone our side of town. They don’t know hardly anyone out here which I immediately could relate to from when we lived in Utah, so we decided to invite them over for dinner on Sunday night to get to know them a little better. Pretty awesome how God works!
After our class, we decided to go out for pizza. My two handsome dates:
We got two different types of pizza – one with sausage, pepperoni, bacon, black olives, bell pepper, onion, & mozzarella and the other was a little more unique with red potatoes, onion, ranch, & mozzarella. Both were SO good!
Get this – Cody and I both slept in until 8:30 AM on Sunday morning, and Hunter didn’t wake up until 9:15 AM!! I can’t remember the last time I slept in past 7:00 AM, and Hunter has never slept in that late. It was pretty glorious. Apparently we were all pretty tired. We went to church that morning, ran a couple errands, and cleaned up the house a bit to get ready for our new friends (from our church’s new members class) to come over. I made enchiladas, and our friends brought a green salad. I haven’t made enchiladas in forever because I’ve boycotted the oven since it’s been crazy hot here, so they tasted extra delicious.
All in all, I’d say it was a pretty great weekend. And now, bring on the new week! Let’s make it a great one!
