Another weekend has come and gone

Oh man what a weekend, most of it was great but not every bit of it you will find out why in a little bit.
 Friday afternoon, I left work early, I was trying to make a phone call and my phone wasn't working so I went to Verizon for them to fix my phone and walked out with a new phone! I was pretty excited even though it was completely unexpected. When I got home Dave and I hung out for a little bit then we got the BEST thing in the mail. We got in our birthday cake flavored Muscle Pharm combat crunch bars, we are obsessed. We got to hang out for about an hour or so before he went to get the kids and I went to meet some people at Starbucks who were interested in Advocare. They signed up!
 So talking about Advocare, thing have gotten pretty crazy for me in a good way. I now have 3 distributors under me one of them being my best friend which makes me SO happy. Her and I are now on another journey together and can lean on each other, bounce ideas off each other and just get healthier TOGETHER! It's just awesome! We did a group cleanse and everyone had really good results, I think things are going to keep going in this amazing direction. I have been praying for direction and as soon as I start to doubt myself something amazing happens and I swear it's a God thing.
 Saturday morning we woke up and headed to the gym. The kids were THRILLED there were lots of kids in the play area. It got loud in there a few times haha

 It rained before we were going to leave to get Isabelle to come spend the night so we all went out on the porch to watch the rain. The kids got silly!

see! ;)

 We finally got to go get Isabelle and the kids got to jump on the trampoline before we left. Logan was thrilled he was hoping it wasn't raining there so he could jump.

 Saturday night our friends came over to hang out, watch football, eat pizza and talk Advocare. None of us were eating healthy that night haha Ashley started her cleanse on Sunday so I mean we HAD to eat something super yummy the night before, right??

 Dave was happy his Eagles won, this is their 2nd win for the pre-season games!
 While the boys watched football and the girls played aka made a MESS in their room haha Ashley and I watched a training video on the computer!

 After everyone left it didn't take long for the kids to be passed OUT!! Last time Isabelle spent the night it was like pulling teeth to get them to finally calm down and sleep. Luckily that was not the case. However, at 3am I woke up not even sure what woke me up but my door was cracked so I went to check on the kids and Alayna was crying her tummy hurt so let's just say the next 2 hours entailed very broken sleep.
 Isabelle and I were the first ones up Sunday morning so we laid on the couch and watched some show she picked out on Netflix. Alayna slept in pretty late so we definitely missed church. It was a good thing though because someone had a few accidents so it was good we were home.
 Dave and I decided to get rid of a ton of clothes and toys for Goodwill then he decided the kids didn't need their beds as bunk beds anymore so we spent the morning doing all that. fun fun!

 We took the kids to the pool and I went to walk on the treadmill, the guy was painting so my workout was not very long. Paint Fumes while trying to walk fast is just not a good combo. Something is better than nothing though!

We came back, had lunch, took Isabelle home and then headed to my parents to hang out. Sat outside most of the time because it was nice out there and just chatted. I did get to eat some yummy  peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream. You're probably thinking im a fatty right now pizza and cobbler in the same weekend but I am happy to report I am 134 this am which is only a tiny bit above what I was at the end of my cleanse last week.
Here's the kids room, we seriously need an extra bedroom so they don't have to share. Dave and I are seriously considering getting a 3 bedroom apartment, a house is definitely what we want but I think it will be another year at least before that happens.
I will miss these beautiful sunsets off the porch though when we move. It may be sooner rather than later.
Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!!

Pool time

Sunday morning I finally got to take Teddy for a walk before church. It has been awhile since I took him on a long walk simply because it has just been too darn hot outside. It was actually really nice and gave me a break from the boring treadmill in the gym. I look forward to my walks now that it is going to be cooler soon enough.
I got back and we all had breakfast and got ready for church. After church we had lunch then headed to the pool with the Newmans! We got to go to their pool which was a first for us, loved the change of scenery. The kids definitely had a blast as did we!

 Jesse boy looking all cute!

 Love them!
 We got home took baths, had dinner then the kids went back to mommys to get ready for school. Dave and I walked Teddy, fed the ducks then passed out! I am always more tired on Sundays when the kids leave haha go figure!

Party Time

As I mentioned in my last post this was our first weekend with the kids in what felt like forever. I enjoyed a lot of peace and quiet but definitely would rather have seen them than not for that month. So anywho we went back to our normal routine for the most part. Saturday mornings start with breakfast then off to the gym for us to workout and them to play. The kids started school today and Logan needed a haircut so him and Dave got haircuts before we went grocery shopping. I think it is hilarious but this boy LOVES getting his haircut. Dave thinks it's because of the thing they use to suck the hair off his neck haha no clue I guess it's a barbershop thing. Alayna and I patiently waited for the boys, luckily there was not much of a line that morning.
 Fresh new haircut for school
We got our shopping done then headed home for lunch. The boys picked me out some pretty flowers so I had to get them in water. Note to self: buy an extra vase! We had to use a big cup for the flowers that wouldn't fit into the one vase.
 Silly girl with her cheese!
We hung out for a bit then got ready and headed to James Island to celebrate my Aunt Susan and Aunt Theresas birthdays!

 This picture cracks me up and here's why. So I was taking a picture of my new glasses then Alayna wanted to be in it then we decided to take a group picture. Logan was all acting like he didn't want to be in it at all and hid his face until I went to snap the picture and he popped his head up haha  I didn't notice until I went to look at it and he was laughing lol silly boy!
 We got there early for Dave to work on his car but he ended up getting the wrong part so that was a wash. It felt really good outside so Alayna and I sat on the front porch and she wanted to water pretty much any and every flower/plant my mom had.

Me and Sir Oliver, such a cutie!
 My cousins baby she is so light and cute!! Little tiny thing!

 My Aunt Theresa and Uncle David brought cokes with everyones names on it, well MOST everyones. Isabelle ended up with Bella and Alayna got Lena but I think everyone else got their names. How fun! What sucks was we can't drink ours until Thursday because we are all on the cleanse! Oh and you see that chocolate cake below this, yep couldn't eat that either! TORTURE!!! I may or may not have had a tiny bit of icing get on my finger while helping Logan pass out cake and I may or may not have licked it off. Btw he wanted to help pass out cake even when I told him we could do it he insisted, little helper!

 The birthday girls with their yummy LOOKING cake!
 My kodie boy
 We got a group shot with some of the ladies and Mr. Oliver, he's the ladies man in this picture.
 Lola with Adrianna, she had fed her a bottle and baby girl passed out. I think Lola was pretty content, I guarantee this kid will have kids one day!
As we were walking my aunts, uncle and grandmother out the boys were staring out the window.
We gave the kids baths there to save on time and that way they wouldn't have to take baths at 9 when we got home. Alayna and Isabelle LOVED getting to play in the tub together. I remember getting to do that as a kid with my cousins and I always loved it. We would always make potions with empty bottles and use shampoos etc to put in it. Now that I am older I get why this was frowned upon you know since shampoo etc isn't cheap and we were completely wasting it haha BUT it made for some good memories!
I will post about Sunday later! Happy MOnday everyone!
