Hey, It's Me Again

Yeah, so I've barely been blogging.

Not that I did a ton of giveaway and reviews, but I think I was trying too hard.  So I'm not going to be looking for any of those opportunities for a while.  If they come my way, maybe.  I'm also not going to spend half the day posting my links.  I just want to get back to the bare basics of why I started blogging... to chronicle my experiences as a parent of two little Aries boys!

A Little Girl Time

My SIL surprised me yesterday when she texted that she wanted to come over and hang out.  I am absolutely starved for face to face girl time! 

It was nice, we sat around chatting, looking at houses for sale, painting our nails and watching the Pretty Little Liars marathon.

I'm still waiting for a true girls' night out but it's just so hard for everyone to get together.  Work, kids, school... life just makes it impossible!

What do you do when your girl friends come to hang out?

My Secret Workout

Guys, I started 30 Day Shred again.  My arms are *shaking* from those pushups... modified, of course.  I'm so out of shape it's embarrassing!  Especially because I don't look especially out of shape.  I'm at a healthy weight, and people always tell me I look great "for someone who had two kids."  <---- btw.="btw." hate="hate" i="i" it="it" modifier="modifier" p="p" people="people" this="this" use="use" when="when">
I just want to tone up a little.  I may never have a flat tummy without surgery, but I sure can lift my ass and tone my legs!  And I'm going to try!

This time, I'm keeping it a secret!  Well, from one person in particular.  I'm not going to tell Eric that I'm working out.  I want him to notice and comment.  It might sound silly, but it will be a true indicator that my work is paying off!  And, he's not one of those guys that wouldn't notice if I got my hair cut or dyed my hair blonde.  He picks up on subtle changes, so I don't have to worry about losing 50lbs and him not saying a word!  Not that I'd try to lose 50lbs, don't worry!

So guys, wish me luck!
