as much as i'd love to drag my camera everywhere, my hands are usually full of juice cups, dirty diapers & stuffed animals that simply HAD TO COME WITH US ON THIS TRIP TO TARGET!!!
so my phone wins. instagram forever. (if you want to follow me i'm @lookatthebirds) even you androiders can now get in on the action.
this past weekend alex resumed swim classes & i decided to make it a morning of just her & i. i sent brynn off with the husband to do their own thing.
we started at the pool & then hit up the mall for some Gap & frozen yogurt action:
by the way- i am now obsessed with tutti frutti. i'm trying to figure out how to justify going on a daily basis.
on the way home she informed me that "mommy. i had fun today." damn straight. ::huge mom smile::
sunday was a chill day- the weather was insanely awesome so after church we ran them ragged outside so they'd nap royally (brynn complied, alex resisted). then we indulged in fish tacos, french fries & chicken strips at a local eatery. we topped it off with ice cream & headed home to bath the 2 stickiest girls in existence.
after the household minors were tucked into bed we high fived ourselves for an awesome weekend & i happily ignored Jillian calling to me from the dvd player. sunday is a day of rest people.
back to the weekly grind yesterday, along with 90+ degree weather. i so badly wanted to skip Jillian once again- but i didn't.
this diet thing isn't half bad. i feel better & i'm still crazy shocked over the amount of food that i can fill up on.
i'm by no means free from temptation- warm bread & chocolate both still whisper downright filthy things in my ear- but i tune them out.
one of the best things i've discoverd is no cook refrigerator oatmeal:
you make it the night before by mixing greek yogurt, milk, rolled oats, chia seeds & various fruits. you give it a stir & pop it in the fridge.
the next morning it's nice & thick & delish. i top it with a bit more fruit or shredded coconut & you've got a healthy breakfast that literally fills you up.
i've been playing around with different yogurt & fruit flavors & i think my fav so far has been Cocnut Mango. insaaaane.
& that about wraps it up.
random weather, daily life, watching my girls turn into little persons, upcoming photoshoots (score), planning for summer- the ususal:
so you. what have you been up to?
& would anyone be interested in a Link Up? if so- any ideas? we could do a "this week in instagram" link up or a "my kids are awesome" link up or etc etc. let me know!
