Life Lately

Why hello there! It's been a while so I'm going to post a few pictures of how our life has been lately. I signed up the boys for swimming lessons so that adds another element to our weekends. Now that the weather is warming up they want to be outside more than ever and I can't complain! The weather has been gorgeous the last couple of days. Here are few pictures from the last couple of weeks.

That smile gets me every time!  :-)

The Hulk! 

Aaron lost his first tooth! Now he is waiting patiently for the next tooth to come out.

I received a flower plant named Aaron :-) for Mother's Day! I thought it was so cute, he even made it purple (my favorite color). I'm very thankful to be Aaron's mother, he's such a loving and thoughtful child. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! 

Workout Wednesday

Just a little pep talk...

I know it's been quite some time now that I posted a Workout Wednesday post.  I can't even say why to be honest, yes I've been busy but aren't we all. Excuses excuses, we all have them.  I definitely find it challenging to fit in my workouts MOST days but that honestly is what's exciting for me. 

I enjoy seeing how far I can push myself day after day. It really is a journey and for me personally I've noticed that my workouts have been in cycles the past few months.  I stay strong for a few weeks and then fall off and then get back on...repeating it over and over.  Not sure why this happens maybe I'm burnt out or bored nonetheless it always clock work. 

Well, I decided as of today I need to push out my journey indefinitely...this is not a day, week, or month challenge. It's my life! Yes I will have setbacks but it's about getting back up. It's about not giving up and being consistent. 

I want to change my perspective and outlook and focus on what can be done done now to get me to where I want to be. We are so quick to think a head and say we want x, y, and z but what can we do right now to achieve our goals??!!! Work...we can work hard right now.  Little by little, day by day those small changes will add up and eventually you'll surpass those goals you initially set. I want to be stronger than I was yesterday. What do you want? Better yet, what can you do to get there? Let's make it happen!

Things have got to...


Now that the boys are getting older and we are revamping their room it's time to get rid of stuff! Spring cleaning at it's finest! I'm working on a big haul the next couple of weeks.

So far we have cleaned out the toy box and donated a bunch of toys the boys no longer play with. I like for them to be involved in what we give away so I tell them to put aside all the things that other boys and girls can play with. Aaron is always so eager to give things away and even kind enough to keep his favorite toys for his little brother. Andrew on the other hand wants to keep EVERYTHING even if he has yet to play with it! Too many toys! In the future, we are definitely scaling back on small toys...way too many things and why are they even necessary if you can only really play with one or two things at a time. Feel me?

The next couple of weeks we will be cleaning everything from head to toe to just get rid of the old so to speak. I'm still working on upgrading the boys room so now is the best time to rid of clutter. Also, with the weather finally changing up we are transitioning from winter clothes to summer clothes! Goodbye long sleeve shirts and corduroy pants! Hello short sleeves and shorts.

Is there a certain time of year that you donate clothes and toys or do you typically put things aside from time to time? It seems like when seasons changes that is the best time to really evaluate what you have and what you need! Here's to getting rid of the old and bringing in the new! :-)
