Good morning beautiful people! Happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a great weekend, and are welcoming the new week with open arms. I wish you all a great week ahead! Thank you for visiting my blog today, I appreciate you! 🙂
My weekend was pretty low key, as always. I spent most of my time with my nephews and my family, and even got to spend some of yesterday with Michael! To say he has been working a lot, is an understatement…so I try to soak in every little bit of time I do get to spend with him.
Friday was Gio’s preschool graduation, as I had talked about in my last blog post, and yes, I cried my eyes out. It just all went downhill when another mother started bawling the second she walked into their classroom, then my sister started, then my Mama started, and then me! Poor Gio was singing his songs and staring at us like something was wrong….aww baby! We told him after that they were happy tears because we are all so proud of him and because of how cute he looked in his graduation hat. I mean come on!! Look at that big boy!!! It is crazy to me how tall, and just how much more grown up he looks now than he did when it was his first day of school.
I am one proud Auntie of my boo!! He has learned so much this year and has made some good friendships. He had such a great teacher, we are all so happy that he was placed in the classroom he was in…they were a bunch of great children!
Saturday morning started with a 30 minute HIIT run on the treadmill, then 10 minutes of planks. I had to work until the afternoon, and then brought some Starbucks over to my sisters house. I played with my boos, watched Gio play his video games, and laughed my butt off at both of their super cute dance moves. They are just so sweet!
My heart is so full of love when I am around those babies! I left their house and came home to happily watch some Bravo shows for the rest of the night. I had some Southern Charm, Real Housewives of Potomac, and Real Housewives of New York City to watch. Honestly, the only show I am really into right now is Southern Charm…the rest I can do without.
Sunday morning started a little later than usual..I actually slept in until 7am and I was so shocked! It actually felt glorious. Once I got out of bed I got my butt moving; a 45 minute incline walk, and was a sweaty mess. It never fails…I actually forget about my working fan on the treadmill so I hardly even use it, oops. A little later in the morning I went to the grocery store with my Dad to stock up on some fruit, and brought some donuts over to my sister’s for the boys. Pretty much my morning was filled with baby snuggles, laughs, and fun!
I must add, when I got home from my sister’s house, I was cutting a pineapple that I just got at the grocery store…only to have cut ONE SLICE and the rest sliding off of the cutting board and onto the floor. Oh my goodness. I was so sad. Now that means another trip to the grocery store is in order for today. That is like the worst thing in the world; to be cutting a fresh pineapple (or any fruit for that matter) and have pretty much the whole entire thing fall onto the floor!! Has that happened to you? Please tell me I am not the only one that is that clumsy!?!
Anyways, back to Sunday, Michael actually got out of work in the afternoon! He literally has been working so much, I am so looking forward to our vacation so I can be with him the whole time!! We hung around at our place for a little, and then went over to my parent’s house where the boys, my sister, brother in law, brother, and my brother’s girlfriend all were too! We didn’t stay long, but just enough for Michael to eat some meat my Dad cooked on the grill (despite the downpour that was going on outside…lol) and for some crazy playtime with the boys.
The rest of the night included us relaxing and watching some of our shows we had piling up on our DVR!
This morning I woke up with a headache. You know the one I had on Thursday night? Yeah, well it has been on and off all weekend long, blah. I can’t seem to shake it, and Tylenol isn’t helping, neither is Excedrin. I think now it is coming from my neck, back, and shoulders…because it is all killing me. Someone please send this girl to the spa for a massage (cough Michael cough cough).
Waking up with a headache makes me feel pretttyyy yucky, and to be honest it’s kind of hard to run on the treadmill when your head feels like a million pound brick, but I tried…ohhh I tried. I started this morning with a 15 minute (standing) ab circuit, and then a 30 minute run, that turned into an incline walk due to this headache. Hey, at least I moved my body?!?
I am getting my nails, and lashes done…but I have a minor issue (which really isn’t an issue at all). I don’t really think I want to get lash extensions anymore, one reason being I want to wash my face and scrub my eyelids. I am so cautious of getting my lashes wet or anything so I am super careful when I wash my face. It’s kind of getting on my nerves. Another reason being we are getting a photoshoot done when we are in Disney (OMG, 13 days guys….13 days!!!), so obviously I am getting my hair and makeup done. I feel like it would be easier for the makeup artist to put makeup on me if I didn’t have these things because I can just see it now: me freaking out about my lashes the whole time she is doing my eyes. To avoid that I would just get false lashes and then be done with it. I know I am going to have a major freak out if (and when) I decide to not have lash extensions anymore because my baby stub lashes will look minuscule to these, especially since I don’t really like to wear makeup on a daily basis and having these extensions make me feel (and look) prettier… Ugh, the struggle is real. I don’t really know what I am going to do, but I guess we shall see in like an hour.
I can’t believe the Fourth of July is next week!! Where has the time gone?! I really hope the summer doesn’t go by too fast. I am going to try to enjoy every second of it!
Have a fabulous day loves! Xoxo ♥♥
