WHAT A DAY! it was like 75 degrees, sunny and simply gorgeous. Totally not what I expected a few days after our first frost.
Also unexpectedly the child allowed me to sleep in an extra hour. It was wonderful! I snuck out of the house to hit the gym before he even woke up.
My return to the gym was amazing. I haven’t been since before the move, like 4 months ago. Life was just too crazy and I had that little race looming over my head. You know this one. :)
I decided to workout with "the trainer" again. It’s a little pricey but totally worth it. We are going to meet just once a week (all I really can afford and have time for) to do a boot camp style full body workout. This is going to sound strange but my reasons for signing up isn’t really for the exercise, I can do that myself or take a class. No, it’s more then that. It’s an hour escape where someone else is taking care of me. Pushing me. Motivating me. I love showing up not knowing what we are going to do and then getting the most awesome workout ever. He always delivers. Today we used the kettle bell, the rope (like the thick mariner rope), the bands, and had an hour of non-stop movement. I love it. Strange, I know. :)
When I got home I made a batch of egg muffins and ate breakfast with the husband and child. We decided it was too nice a day to stay in so we got dressed and headed out to run some errands. One of those errands was to get me a new shiny camera! I decided on the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. It’s been my one big purchase for my business this year.
It was time for me to upgrade. I’ve been taking all my photos for the sites on an old 4 MP point and click that I’ve outgrown. Right now the Canon is too much camera for me but I hope to be up to speed with it in a few weeks. Here’s a bit of a photo journal of our afternoon.
Of course my first subject was the child. Here he is eating lunch and watching… wait… let’s play a game… maybe you can figure it out. It’s is favorite cartoon at the moment and I’m more then ecstatic as it’s one of my childhood favorites as well.
Figured it out yet?
While the toddler was eating I made myself a tomato pizza on light flat out bread.
Next we were off to the park!
The husband was having too much fun. :)
…and so was I. Especially with my new "toy." (Note: That’s how I normally look on a weekend… no makeup and messy hair. oh who am I kidding… It’s how I look most of the time. :)
After the park we took a stroll, come home and made dinner.
Seriously.. how fabulous a day was that?
Is my inbox bursting from the seams? You bet!
Do I have about a million things on my to do? ohhh yeah.
Is the house completely spotless? HA! not even close.
I had a great day with family. I prepared for the week by cutting up fresh veggies, making lunches tomorrow and pulling out stuff for dinner tomorrow (gonna experiment with the crock pot.)
That, my friends, is what I call a Sensational Sunday!
I’ll leave you with this shot…
The child inherited my old camera and he couldn’t me happier! He’s pretty good with it too…
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Here’s the food journal.
