Heaven gained a new Angel 😇

Yesterday afternoon we lost my Aunt Janne way too soon. She had so much spirit and strength and love and since of adventure. I’ve loved her and been close to her my whole life.

She is already missed so much. Would give anything to just hug her one more time and tell her how much I love her and she means to me .

Happy New Year

Well after Christmas we spent the day after resting and packing and cleaning up it was pouring rain all day.

On the 28th we headed up to June Lake all four of us and picked up our nephew on the way to bring him back to his mom.

We were all tired after a long drive. My hubby and I went out to dinner across the street after getting the kids fed.

It was so beautiful in June lake love the snow. We took kids sledding played in the snow with them . We also spent an afternoon bowling and went for pizza.

Since the kids share a room and hubby was snoring I didn’t sleep first two nights. Then he offered to take the couch so I could sleep following two nights.

Which I greatly appreciated as I needed sleep. We decided to get home early left on NYE. Didn’t have any exciting plans hung out Witt the kids and enjoyed a night in and I unpacked and got laundry ready to start the following day. I cooked us a simple meal.

January 1st I got on my peloton for three workouts my challenge started and I was motivated. I e took the kids to Starbucks I got my iced green tea lemonade and made myself toast at home.

Did lots of cleaning and laundry took down our tree and all our decorations. My hubby and I managed to make a reservation to have a belated NYE dinner together it was lovely. Food was great and always nice to have adult time with my hubby.

I haven’t been to pure barre yet though this year have to get payment squared away. Did more peloton today and I forgot to mention I did a ride after dinner on NYE felt food after being cooped up in the car for nearly seven hours.

House is looking pretty good I got all our laundry done. Kids enjoyed playing and hanging out all day. I took Savannah to our friends home to have a play date and catch up with my friend Tara.

Such a nice afternoon catching up. I started making dinner for the kids when I returned home. My son got Savannah’s Tee pee put together and she loves it. My peloton outfits that I bought for myself since my secret Santa was a flake came in.

I have to try them on excited to wear them. Our dog is in need of grooming he is so stinky from walking in snow and just in general as it’s a week past due.

I will hopefully be able to book him soon! Jeff got us squared away with Brandon’s tutor money and lunch money since he will be out of town on Monday and until the 15th.

The kids and I always miss him when he has to go away. Tomorrow I will figure out what I need from grocery store I know we need all the produce and fruit items and I’m almost out of dish washer pods. So I will make a list. Savannah needs Lunchables and snacks and drinks for her school lunch.

I need to get organized in kitchen and pantry I need drawer organizers bad. I also want to reorganize my closet and bathroom ASAP.

I’ve been doing great drinking water daily. I want to get in enough exercise and steps and water each day. Double my vegetable intake and cut out cheese and limit other dairy items.

I want to keep up with my journaling and also my reading.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous New Year so far!

December 25, 2019 Merry Christmas 🎄

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was a little different not as big of a group. My Aunt was not feeling good at all today. I was sad she felt too ill to make it. We love her very much.

We had a nice casual day just us and the kids. Then we had a great time with my parents and Rob and Debra. Kids opened gifts we all had great conversations and watched Christmas movies.

My stomach wasn’t great some of the evening but once it was I was happy again to feel myself. After our guests left I did A peloton workout my little one worked out on her cycle next to me.

I took a relaxing bath and now I am ready for some much needed sleep. I hope everyone had a wonderful day! 😊🎄😘🤗🎅🙏💪🏻

I need to get in another peloton workout today. I will get laundry finished and watch some Christmas movies with kiddos. I haven’t received my secret Santa gift from my boo croo yet. She got hers awhile back from me before Thanksgiving and loved them which is great !

I love all the cards we got this year from family and friends. So sweet. I still need to get Savannah and my stuff packed for June Lake.

I need to look at all gifts find ones with no names and add to they are for on them and who from. Hopefully I remember who they are for.

Hope everyone has a goodnight 🌙😴

To see my daughter and all the other kids so happy and excited to have their best friend back was the best feeling.

Truman has two of the most amazing loving awesome and strong parents a kid can have. I think they are great and I was so happy to see them and get to hug them after a long time since they went to Texas for his treatments.

So I woke this morning at 4 am my neck is all messed up must have hurt it while sleeping. That’s always frustrating and Savannah did not have her cardigan it got left at school had to look for that when we got there this morning.

Then after getting Brandon to school and then Savannah all set at school and yay we found the cardigan. 🙌 I show up 30 minutes early for my pure barre class and the whole front right side is reserved for people not there. Pretty annoying I was gonna leave but they adjusted the spots.

Workout was good thankfully I picked up my tea at Starbucks and had my breakfast at home did my start today journal along with show. I was in a much better mindset . I got cleaned up and got a few things done around the house.

Then I went to enjoy one of the facials I bought in a three pack during Black Friday. The Derma glow facial. It was great ! I needed to relax and feel good and sometime doing something nice fir yourself reminds you that you deserve to be happy and you matter.

Being a mom your always doing for others and making your schedule work around everyone else’s needs. It’s easy to feel depleted.

I made angel hair pasta with shrimp and garlic bread. Brandon and I had another meeting for his football .

Hope everyone had a great day !

Busy week here finished decorating house. Worked out at Pure Barre four days in a row and did Peloton. Met Sara my bestie for lunch Tuesday got errands done so many each day.

Enjoyed a few more days with my husband before he headed to June Lake. Enjoyed day with my hubby Wednesday and went to my friends Xmas party Wednesday night. Sheri through a great party for all of us Pure Barre gals.

I was also able to have lunch with my dear friend Cheryl on Thursday who is in town for a short visit. She’s like a second mother to me absolutely love her.

My son got put on detention for next week he has to bring lunch and sit in Ms Celaya’s class. His grades are good his GPA was good on last report card but he could have done better in. Indict and improved the C’s to B’s.

I want to see his Math grade improve this semester. I got most of our Christmas cards mailed. we got a little bit of rain and cooler weather this week.

I still need to finish Brandon’s xmas shopping and kids stocking stuffers my husbands gifts and gifts for adults coming to our house for Xmas day.

Brandon needs gift for heart pal to bring in this week. We need to send in gift card for Savannah’s teacher this week. I have my wax appointment and seriously between just groceries and basic stuff money is already depleted.

Trying not to stress I trust my husband will make sure I have money for the school items. I haven’t got my hair done since September and our dog Charly is stinky and needs a grooming too lol but we’re gonna have to wait and be patient.

I hope everyone had a great week! I really enjoyed time with my friends my workouts and my hubby. My kids and I had a good week too and I had a great Friday night with them and Saturday 😊 Goodnight 😘🌙💤
