Summer....thus far

Well, I thought I would be blogging a whole lot more being out of work. But it seems as though I'm super busy and I keep putting it off. Summers are the worst for me because I procrastinate like no other. "Oh, I can do that tomorrow," and before I know it, a week has gone by.

This summer has been pretty good so far. I have been working out. My friends have talked me into doing Crossfit and I must say, I'm already addicted. I never thought I would like a workout like that, but I do. And what's better is there is a room at the gym for my kids to play, which is pretty rare for CrossFit "boxes". That is a huge selling point to me. Plus the owners are awesome and two of my good friends are going there too. Good motivation for me.

I'm happy to report I'm down on my pop (or as some like to call it "soda") intake. I used to drink at least one a day, now I'm down to like maybe 1-2 a week. It's awesome! Let me tell ya. I'm not down too much weight right now, but I do know I'm getting stronger.

I've also decided to start my masters. I will be getting it in Educational Leadership and M is fully behind me on this decision, which is so awesome! I should be able to get it done in a year to 18 months. I'm not happy with my assignment at school this year, but this will keep me motivated and focused.

One of these days I need to get motivated and get our house in order. It looks as though a tornado went through. It seems like as soon as I pick stuff up, our tornado (Pretty girl) comes behind me and undoes everything I just did.

Do any of you use the Erin Condren Life planners? I've seen them on facebook and have a few friends that love them. I was just wondering what you girls thought of them.

I'm thinking of getting family pictures done this summer before M leaves on his training. What is the going rate for photographers? We haven't had family pics done since M returned from Afghanistan (*fail).

Now I will leave you with some pics of my cute kiddos :) 'Cause who doesn't love cute pics?

She insisted I do her hair and take a picture

This is my indorr kitty who know thinks he's a big bad outdoor kitty. He's declawed and a rag doll cat, he's not going to win outside :(

Pretty Girl got her faced painted while we waited for dinner one night. She wanted to be a rainbow butterfly. She did awesome sitting still to get this done.
