Love Me a FRIDAY!

Sugar jelly beans are going to be the death of me! That's if pastel colored M&M's don't get me first...
Easter hasn't even been mentioned on this blog but you must know that I'm excited for it to be here!
Now that us ladies in the family have sorted through the urgent matters of "who's house" and "who's cooking what" we can focus on fun things like the egg hunt and what we're wearing!

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter holiday and if you don't celebrate the holiday I still send you wishes for a wonderful weekend :)

1// I'm in love with this quote! Life is so much easier when we don't waste any time dwelling in the past. With our eyes set on the future - looking towards our goals and all that they mean to us - it frees us from any hindering weight. When working toward your goal with "the new" being your only focus you might even find that you surpass the level you had once set to achieve.

2// Little Easter candy binge.... empty your bags of candy into fancier dishes! It may stay aware of your intake. orrrrrrrr it may just entice you more.

3// I broke down. I bought a bauble style necklace. Truth be told, I bought two.
Damn Very Jane emails.

4// He understands Easter egg hunting this year! How much fun are we gonna have on Sunday?!! I love to hear him squeal "HOP" when he sees a bunny. And I love even more to watch him try to hop like a bunny. He's quite proud of his first handmade Easter basket. His daycare got crafty with brown paper bags, some construction paper and let the kids do the stamping and gluing of one cotton ball.

5// My corner at work. I've finally situated myself and my family so that I can drop to working only two days a week. People, life has never, ever been this way. I spent years working two jobs and attending school back when it was just me and Lance. Once I married Lucas I dropped the second job and school but I always worked full time. I don't know life without a full time job, 5 days of work. I've always enjoyed work and never thought I'd want less. Something changed when my second was born. And here I am, ready and able to finally be keep my youngest home with me and walk together to meet my oldest at the bus stop, 3 days a week. I am beyond excited about this!!


Take a moment to reflect on the big and small things that make your week more beautiful.

That's such a great thing that after years of working your butt off you can enjoy what matters most. And Easter candy will be the death of me. No doubt. Have a great Easter weekend.

Those jelly beans are dangerous!! Also loving that necklace! Have fun with the little on Easter with the egg hunt!

You may have just enticed me to get stock up on pretty, pastel colored sugary things... I don't hate it! I foam roll, though probably not as often as I should, and I LOVE it!!! It's a "hurt so good" thing- it's the best! http://www.youtube.com/user/LivestrongWoman?v=khC5J1lkC7s This woman has some good tips and moves, especially for your IT band.

You will find more things to do than you Are possibly able to accomplish with your extra time. I'm sure you will feel busy again soon between runs/trips to the gym, making heatlhy food, playing with your toddler, having play dates, and helping your older son with homework once you pick him up from the bus stop!

And I just broke down and bought a bauble style necklace too a couple weeks ago :)

A J said...

Your new necklace is so pretty! And your little man is adorable, enjoy Easter with him.

I've done some foam rolling and I really like it. My gym had a class on it, and I do some at home now. It hurts (not a lot) but I feel like it helps too. I hope you try it and blog about it!

Hailey LoveLaughterandLipstick said...

I don't have any bubble necklaces yet but believe me I will! I LOVE yours! Hubby does some foam rolling and it really helps him stretch his hip out when it's bothering him. I haven't tried it yet though, I am loving my new Jawbone Up though!

I love all of your high fives this week! Where to start? That quote hits home with me right now, so thank you! I am definitely binging on Easter candy, its too tempting. The necklace is adorable! Can you say cute? Nose in the bag and oreo in hand, he is too too cute! I hope you have a ton of fun with your boys on your days off! :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

I love the necklace, it's cute! :)

Bekah @ re·solve said...

Foam rolling is INCREDIBLE. I've used it just to crack my back (lovely, I know) for some time now. It feels so nice! at the gym I go to, the trainers begin eeryone with rolling during warm ups. I'm all for it!

Melissa said...

Hey girl! I'm so happy you don't have to work as much now!! I have no idea how you were doing it all to begin with!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Adrienne Clark said...

For sure laughed out loud with the "truth be told I bought 2", pretty much the story of my shopping life! And good for you @ #5! It's always a blessing to be able to stay home and enjoy life with your kids (not that I'm speaking from experience bc I have no kids, but seems like my ideal mom-life)! So happy for you :-)

I love that necklace! I haven't broken down and gotten one yet...mainly because I haven't tried on any. Haha.

Do I foam roll?! YES. I swear, the boy does it every hour. It hurts at first but after a couple weeks of doing it, it'll feel like it's doing its job. I should probably blog about this.

Congratulating on being able to work part time. I am looking forward to decreasing to three days a week in the fall. I can't wait!! Have a great Easter :)

Julie-Becoming A Navy Wife said...

I'm so glad you get to be off three days a week! That is so exciting! I loved having my mom at home with us when we were little. I saw a foam roll today at the store and thought of you…I wasn't quite sure what this was and then I had a little "ah ha" moment. lol.

gayle t. said...

That is SOOOO awesome about your two day work week! Yay!

I do foam rolling, I have this CRAZY one that can be super-intense depending on the angle/positioning. I do my calves, gluts, and my abductors. It is awesome.

Tips:
Do it slowly, and hold the roller in a spot if it's tender. Let your body weight do the work for you. Slow, and hold. Body weight. Those are my tips! :)

I always miss your amazing post for some reason and your amazing words. You're one amazing blogger. You make me want to be a better blogger. You look great hun. You make me wanna go run a thousand laps around my house though LOL and quit eating period LOL Hope you have a great Easter weekend.

p.s. Never in my life have I heard of foam roll. Sounds like a roll with foam on it which probably wouldnt be too good. Such I dont suggest it. and I'm not beging someone's genie pig to try it out ;) LOL

Love the quote! Going to write it on my dry erase board in our kitchen! Happy for you on decreasing your work load! Being a SAHM is great and challenging but I would not have it any other way, my days are coming to a close because our youngest will be starting kindergarten in Aug! So that means I will be heading back to work.
Love the necklace! I have one and love it!! Happy Easter!

Janna Renee said...

That quote is AWESOME. It applies to how I feel about my new workout regiment. I hope you guys have a great Easter!

Kathy said...
