The New Year is off to a pretty good start. Winter has most certainly arrived, with its cold and snow. I would be lying if I wasn't slightly envious of my in-laws who are back in Phoenix. Audrey keeps asking when we can go visit them in their "new house"!
We booked our flights to New York last week so we are in the planning stages of our trip! We go in May, to celebrate our 10th Anniversary! We are so excited for this trip- it will definitely be something we can check off our travel bucket list! If you have any tips, please share them! I know a few people have been so I'll be checking your trip recap posts for ideas too.
We have been trying to take advantage of this snow- we went tobogganing with the kids last weekend. One of them liked it...
I've been doing Alison's Beachbody Challenge this month which has been good for keeping me accountable with food, my biggest weakness. I can manage to get my workouts in, but I have a hard time saying no to chocolate or any treats! So while I am not completely cutting myself off (that is just a set up for failure of me), I am reducing them, and trying to eat more balanced overall so I don't get the 4pm energy crash.
Audrey and I made energy balls to help with this. They are soooo good!
I have also been getting my workouts in as soon as we get home from work/dayhome on my work days so that it's out of the way and I can relax in the evening rather than getting too pumped up before bedtime. The kids are somewhat helpful in letting me workout.
Hubby joined a local Club downtown so we went for an orientation lunch last week. The kids enjoyed time with Grandma W while we had a fancy lunch! It was really good and I think it will be a great venue for future R+F events and other member events throughout the year.
The countdown is on for Audrey & Leo's birthdays next month so I'm starting to plan for their party. I'm still in denial that they are getting older... I'm not!
I've been visiting lots with friends who just had babies so filling any baby fever I might have! They are so sweet and cuddly but I must say I am enjoying the independence of my children at this age!
Leo is cutting at least 2 molars right now so he is a real treat! Poor kid! So clingy and wanting Mommy, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't make me feel a little good!
Work has been super busy for Hubby and I both. The days go by very quickly. My R+F business is rolling along and I have big goals for this year so I'm working on those!
Our house hunt continues. We actually put an offer on my dream home just before Christmas, but long story short the realtor/owner decided it was better for her to rent it out than sell it. It was very disappointing but I have to believe something as good or better will come along soon enough. I'm slightly relieved that we don't have to madly rush to get our house ready for listing.
I'm also about to start preparing for my first race of the year. More details coming up on that soon!
