Yesterday was a great day! I was able to spend time with my best friend. Started with Coffee and catching up.

Then we headed to the movies to see “BreakThrough” what a great movie ๐Ÿฟ love true stories.

After the movie we had lunch at PF Chang’s. Such a nice day and we finished it off at The Hobby Lobby finally used a gift card I’d had for awhile.

We both headed our separate ways to pick up our kids. I got my kids picked up did a Peloton workout and made us dinner.

Unfortunately I also got some terrible news my daughters sweet friend Truman is back getting treatment his tumor grew and prognosis isn’t good. We are praying for a miracle for this wonderful courageous boy and his family. I ask that everyone send good vibes and positive thoughts and please pray for him to get through this we need a miracle๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™.

Today I got the kids off to school and had some breakfast before meeting two of my friends for coffee. I was able to get a facial as part of my Mother’s Day gift. I got the Derma Glow facial at Organic Glow Skin Studio Riely is the absolute best my skin feels amazing and looks great!

Afterwards I got all but one of my brokers exams completed. Bummed they are making me wait two more weeks until I can take last one just want to finish them so I can submit to go take my actual exam.

Guess I need more patience. I picked up my kiddos and we had dinner at home then I took them out for ice cream ๐Ÿจ and some sweet gal bought are ice cream for us she said it was her good deed of the day. So sweet ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿจ.

I’ve had sweet Truman on my mind all day today. I’m definitely harnessing all the positive thoughts and energy I can and sending out good vibes and thoughts and praying a lot.

Tomorrow I have a full day ahead of me and I need to get in a Peloton workout I missed doing one today.

Summer is almost here and I am doing my best to gear up and be fully prepared. We have a Birthday party to go to this weekend and then we have a Double Birthday to go to first week of June.

I want to get my body bikini ready for our Hawaii trip. I want to figure out the plan for Savannah’s 4th Birthday.

Get my son signed up for his Stanford Basketball camp Aztec Basketball camp and His tackle football ๐Ÿˆ season equipment and signed up.

I hope everyone is having a great week! Goodnight ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜˜

So this past week has been busy and lots of highs and lows. I got in a lot of peloton workouts during the week which brings me joy. I did Pure Barre Reform class Monday but it bothers me to have so much core pain still from my last c section considering my duaghters about to turn four this summer. My lower abdomen and back get severe pain easily during core workouts.

This is frustrating because I want my flat tummy back and my flexibility but I just havenโ€™t got it back. I was able to have coffee with my bestie on Tuesday which is always great. I got a lot done on Wednesday and Thursday the insurance adjuster came over. I still have anxiety and nightmares brought on from my stress of our break in over Easter.

Friday was a beautiful day my daughters school put on a wonderful Motherโ€™s Day Tea all the children performed there was a raffle and silent auction as well as photo booth. Food was great and I so enjoyed the kids performances and catching up with all the other moms. I was lucky enough to win a few of the silent auction items.

The awesome part also is that it raised over $9,000 for Savannahโ€™s dear friend Truman who has been battling cancer he has a wonderful family who are very loved by our whole community. Friday I had a good night with the kids Friday but I didnโ€™t sleep well and was super tired Saturday. Savannah got to return back to Ms Lauraโ€™s dance class she hadnโ€™t been since November.

Motherโ€™s Day was not ideal but had some nice moments nice afternoon with friends we did take in a morning movie ๐Ÿฟ but little one had some moody moments and did not want to nap. Thatโ€™s momlife though. My husband was missed since heโ€™s been away working. But he sent me some beautiful roses and chocolate covered strawberries.

This morning wasnโ€™t bad my sweet girl had snack and share day at school Brandon was ready for school had chores done and all set for me. I was still tired from my lack of sleep this weekend. I took a short nap but had terrible nightmare which gave me anxiety. So I just got up and to tasks for my day.

I finally was able to take my broker exams they made me wait 18 days after finishing all the section quizzes. So I only had about two hours to do some and I was able to do three done before picking my son up so I have four more to go to have all my certificates to send in so I can get my actual test date set.

a little bit rough afternoon but it all turned around and I had a good night with my kids and am so happy for simple things. Prayer time with my children makes me happy. Reading with Savannah makes me so happy. A relaxing bubble bath at the end of a long day with a face mask on. The Bachelorette to watch on tv and knowing I have some time with my bestie tomorrow and more time with great friends later this week.

Wanting to get things in order for summer with kids activities and sports as well as our Hawaii vacation and Savannahโ€™s fourth Birthday. I have some Goals Iโ€™ve set for myself that Iโ€™d like to put into action and start working towards acheiving those. I have so much to be thankful for and I have a good life I am blessed.

Hope everyone had. Wonderful Motherโ€™s Day Weekend and have a wonderful week!

so much has been going on dad turned 71 and my nephew turned 25. I did my century ride and got my shirt and did the homecoming rides it was a fun time. My son had another school dance. He has two grades he needs to improve and only weeks left until he’s out of school. I’ve had a lot of depression lately since our robbery. I don’t like feeling unsafe or anxious filled with anxiety. Lots of things have brought this in though the robbery just brought it to a whole new level. I think my 40th Birthday looming brings on lots of stress and not being happy with my body in general anymore. I’m working out eating well and just don’t seem to be making any progress. I really have been in a funk and have been doing more mediation and writing and praying want to get back to my happy positive self. I hope everyone is having a great month of May so far!

Well last two weeks have been so busy. Savannah has been at home both weeks first for her spring break.

Then for Brandon’s spring break. We went to church on Palm Sunday and I quickly realized she was getting sick nurses that most of the break.

Brandon had his passion play last Wednesday night it was great he and the other kids did a phenomenal job.

Thursday was a half day for him and then he was off at for spring break. He went to Mexico with my parents.

Jeff and I took Savannah to Newport Beach to get our RV out and by time we got it started up parked in our space most of day was over. We took Savannah to Fashion island got her a pair of sunglasses age picked out and a fun vanity toy set for Easter.

We had dinner at PF Chang’s and then headed back to RV we made some s’mores got in our jammies and just as we were about to go to bed. Got an alert checked and saw a robber in our home on our daughters room.

Called police they responded with 7 squad cars and a helicopter. Even though we left in our jammies we couldn’t get home quick we were stuck in bumper to bumper traffic got gone three hours later.

Police had ya call them to escort us into our house. It was a very scary situation. My safe was even busted into every price if jewelry that wasn’t costume was stolen only had what I wore to RV on left. All cash gift cards Disney annual passes my husbands checks from his desk etc taken and more.

It’s devastating my daughter Ice heir in bed with us every night since. Even with all that I made sure Savannah had a great Easter and Brandon when he got home.

My dad needed me to sign paperwork for his trust so me and kids went with him to Mexico for a quick trip Monday -Wednesday.

My dad has three trips to the hospital in last two weeks which is stressful too he’s getting older it scares me we all love him so much.

Wednesday when we got home we all went to a late lunch Don Diego’s great Mexican food and margarita.

Crazy me I noticed it was my last chance to do my ๐Ÿ’ฏ century ride live with Cody. So even though I had just eaten a large meal and had a margarita I jumped on the bike did his 45 minute ride completed my century ride. I felt like I was dying but I did great and Cody even gave me a shout out.

Thursday I took Brandon to Disneyland we had a fantastic day but unfortunately end of day he was not feeling good so we left earlier than planned for him home and into bed. He’s finally feeling better!

His spring on his braces broke had to call his Dr in for emergency fix today.

He’s been the best kid I could ask for in so many amazing ways but today instead of organizing and cleaning his room I caught him tossing everything even new in wrapper school supplies tie electronics etc in trash with no regard. Made for a fun long night for this mom making him fish things out put away nicely etc. I’m beat hope everyone has been doing well and had a great two weeks! Goodnight ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜˜

It’s been a good week a busy week. My daughter is finally 100% potty trained only underwear 24 hours a day no accidents.

My son is keeping up with his grades and has been a big help at home. Savannah had an Easter party Friday before getting out for her spring break.

Brandon has school next week his break is week after Easter. He’s in the passion play at his school so we will watch that next week.

I took my mom to the movies on Tuesday and saw Aftermath. Wednesday I spent the day with my bestie and used a spa gift card I got back in September.

I did lots of peloton and went to Pure Barre. Finished a new book which was so nice.

Today took my son to a movie while my mom watched Savannah.

Looking forward to getting her swings up and sand in her sandbox. Hoping she feels better so I can take her to Disney this week!

I hope everyone has had a great week! I’m so tired will write more soon goodnight ๐Ÿ˜ด

Had a good week! I am done with all my online quizzes for all my broker courses just waiting until I’m allowed to take exams so I can get those done and book my actual test date. Got to see my buddy on Wednesday and got house organized. Did peloton all week long and my next class I will be at 75 rides.

Friday was a busy day took Brandon to school then Savannah and I dropped Charly to the groomers and had some girl time a little breakfast at Starbucks before dropping her to school.

Brandon got out at noon so I took him to lunch. Got groceries picked Savannah up after her soccer. Took both kids to get haircuts and then picked Charly up.

Made angel hair pasta with lots of garlic and lemon and shrimp a little garlic bread and we all loved it. Also made some chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

Today we played outside had our Starbucks. Brandon hung out with my parents after they came over for a visit. Savannah and I had fun we played, had yummy lunch napped and did lots of fun stuff while watching Cinderella.

My dad took Brandon to see the movie ๐Ÿฟ “US”. I made lasagna and Savannah helped me make some fun sugar cookies and iced them.

When B got home we all hung out and it was a great night! Sleepy now goodnight ๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ˜ด๐ŸŒ™

Today was a good day was able to get a lot done. But hoping to be able to get groceries for us we’re even out of eggs lol no fresh produce or fruits anymore.

I made an appointment for Charly to get groomed Friday and the kids get haircuts after school on Friday.

Stressed ๐Ÿ˜ฉ so much to do and money is short. Dry cleaning to pick up too. I’ve been getting in lots of peloton workouts I’m close to 75 workouts.

I took Barre last week and this Monday. I went to the movies with my friend Kellie on Tuesday. I also did Savannah’s snack and share day.

Kids are excited for Easter and also already talking about summer. Huge reason is excited for Hawaii trip my parents and our family is going on.

Kids have never been to Hawaii and Brandon has only been to Chicago/ Wisconsin when he was 3 and flight to San Francisco for basketball camp that’s it.

Savannah’s been asking us practically everyday to add her swings to her swing set. I’ve been looking at directions and I think my son and I can tackle it if we need to.

I’m not the most handy with putting things together. But I am excellent at organizing and got Savannah some toy storage bins and sorted everything today and her room looks great!

Brandon’s grades have been great! Proud of him and it looks like he’s on a great track and will keep it up.

My friend Sheri hit the 500 club this week so proud of her๐Ÿ˜Š Savannah keeps getting eczema and rashes so I got her all kinds of specialty bath and lotions to help.

I’ve been checking out new cars have a few favorites and hoping to get into one by my 40th Birthday ๐ŸŽ‚

Kids and I have been doing good getting into the groove of our schedule. Unfortunately the kids have different spring breaks Savannah’s is week before Easter and Brandon’s is the week after.

House looks great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป looking forward to pool weather and getting our rafts out soon.

Would love to plan a tea party ๐Ÿ˜Š Need to get reading again have two books I’ve been meaning to read but haven’t had a chance yet.

Looking forward to seeing my best friend tomorrow for coffee โ˜•๏ธ

I do want to lose belly fat especially lower abdomen that’s been unattractive since my last pregnancy.

With 40th Birthday looming it definitely makes you think of where you want to be in all aspects of life.

I’ve been sleeping good and eating pretty healthy but I am out of salad fresh veggies and fruits so so need a grocery trip.

Savannah’s doing great on the potty and o believe she will finally complete potty training use potty for number 2 soon and be in underwear only she’s in it all day and at naps at home but in pull ups at school nap and at home for bedtime only.

Been thinking about what to do for Savannah’s 4th Birthday this summer. Glad I still have awhile.

Thinking good thoughts and prayers for a great outcome for Truman at his Cancer checkup. Also my friends husband is not doing well and it seems pretty serious so my thoughts and prayers are with them both. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I think our kids are gonna love everything I picked out and got to fill their Easter baskets this ๐Ÿฃ Easter.

I hope everyone is having a great week! Goodnight ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿค—
