Long time no update!
Apologies- I was busy living life and not documenting online!
Here is a rundown of the last few weeks, with some pictures, some funny commentary and my usual take on life…
-Visit to MD to celebrate birthdays (mine!) and Mother’s Day (love you, Momma B!)
-Working out (hello, gym membership, nice to use you again!)
-Fun with friends (catching up with old ones and making new ones!)
-Wine, lots of wine.. oh, and can we talk about CAKE VODKA (with a splash of seltzer, or the other way around, depending on the day!)
-Losing 8lbs in April (and gaining 2 back in May, see The BAD for the reason…)
-Ina Garten’s Coconut Birthday Cupcakes (they were awesome, but soooo bad for you…)
-5 days of rain (good for the garden, bad for the spirits!)
-Over 10 hours in the car to visit family (why can’t we be closer?!)
-My doctor’s appointment last friday (A1c= 7.1, which is perfect in all cases EXCEPT pre-pregnancy… all other numbers went up as well- damn you birthday cupcakes, work and wine…)
-My first car accident (fine, sore, and pissed off)
-The poison ivy that is taking over our backyard
-Dogs with fleas, ticks and poison ivy
-Trying to balance personal and professional commitments (and failing…)
So, let’s focus on the good, now that we’ve got the bad and the ugly out of the way!
Here are some sneak peeks of the yardwork that we’ve been doing (more coming on Tuesday- check back!)
Back walkway in progress…
Grass/Garden in progress… not so easy with 3 dogs who love to jump makeshift fences…
The planters on the front are half finished (story of my life… I ran out of plants!)
Hope you had a great weekend and best wishes for a sunny, happy, positive Monday OR, a nice bottle of wine at the end of it!
