first few weeks of school!

I wasn't nervous at all about Mr K heading to grade 1... up until the night before! A flood of emotions overwhelmed me. I was nervous for him! Going to a big kid class and the big kid yard! 

Little K was ready that morning. He was calm and cool, didn't say much but  he seemed way more ready for grade 1 than I was! Haha

Baby M had a hard time at daycare the past week because big brother leaves the room quickly in the mornings after they get dropped off. During the summer they both had summercamp at the same daycare Little K would stay at least a good hour with baby M before going to the big kid class but now Mr K heads over to the big kid morning class right away and baby M caught on to that. :( he's adjusting but it was a hard first week for him! Missing his big brother! 

He looks so big! He had a great first week and another great second week. 

He's enjoying grade 1! He loves his teacher and friends. He's practicing his writing and reading without a fight. He loves drawing ninjas still haha it's the cutest. I've seen so much positive change in him and it's only been 2 weeks. The next stage for him is creeping up. He'll be 6 in a month and a bit. 6! Of course it'll be a ninja birthday :) 

Yes that's a ninja. He's just breaking in his Halloween costume haha. 


Our nightly routine (when we start early enough) always includes reading before sleep. Baby M has his book that he repeats "daghoo" aka dog for the paw patrol book. Little K will start with the books that he is familiar with, that are easy for him to read, and I'll read a new book and have them follow along. 

We can't wait to see what else grade 1 brings! Love these little boys so much. 💞

Just the beginning ...

Our new year began with the flu. Yup. The first week of the new year my little guys were off and on sick with the flu. 

We spent a few extra days at home getting better.

The past few weeks felt really chaotic and busy. Back to school, kids under the weather, everyone trying to get back into the grove of things, trying to work on my New Years resolutions.... The best advice that was ever given to me, was to be 'gentle' with yourself when you are feeling overwhelmed. 
So I did just that. I took things day by day and told myself that my "NEW YEAR" resolutions will just begin a few weeks in. No biggie. That made all the difference. It took a load off my shoulders. We all got better and a little bit more organized :) and I'm slowly trying to get to those goals

The kids have a few 2017 goals of their own :) 

Little K has swimming lessons and piano lessons.  Which he is enjoying. 

Little K had a great first week back to school. He wrote me a note yesterday and it just melted my heart. I put it up at my desk at work :)

Baby M just got over an ear infection and had a few cranky days :( today he's feeling much better. In a few months he will be starting a new daycare which I think will be great for him. He is one busy little boy! Ha! 

We have so many exciting goals to work towards in 2017. 

What are your new year goals?

Have a great weekend friends!

Tuesday Basement Workout!

Tuesdays are my basement workouts. So as soon as I got home I put dinner in the oven and went to workout!

Yesterday was such a busy day at work. My food choices started off great, but I was so busy in the afternoon I had no time to eat my snacks and I left work an hour later too! So my husband met me near by after work for dinner. We went for sushi but decided to order a dinner dish instead, I choose the Salmon (I'm sure it's still way above the calories than I wanted).... I really don't want to be eating out during the week, so I was a little upset that it was MONDAY and I already ate out! Glad today was a better day :)

I bought this new peanut butter and just love it!!

Since I've been having salads for lunch, my breakfasts are either Kashi Cereal and Coffee or 1 piece of 12 grain toast with peanut butter sprinkled with chia seeds and coffee. Since I bought this peanut butter, I'm choosing this breakfast a lot more haha!

The next couple weeks my schedule will get tighter, so I'm trying to be pro-active and picking out the days when I can fit my workouts in. So far Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sunday nights fit well. As for Hot Yoga, I really wanted to go every week,(I found a time slot that is 60mins :)) but its so hard to fit it in. It may be a every other week thing, I hope!

Week 2! How is your second week of January going??

New Years Eve Fun!

Happy New Year Friends!!

New Years Eve was so much fun. No one we knew had any plans, so last minute my sister decided to have a party at my moms house. :) It was a pretty good turn out.

It wasn't the safest thing to do in the house ahahah and also not good for meee, the smoke from these things made my asthma act up and of course once again I didn't have my inhaler. So that slowed me down. Breathing from the tiniest airway. I looked online and read that drinking a cold coke could help. I did that, it helped a bit, that or me sitting in one spot for a while. It didn't slow down the fun tho!

It was a late night and the party ended at 6am!
Spending NYE with this princess was perfect :)

And now the holidays are over!!! :(

It's time to get focused on my goals! Every New Year the husband and I re-write our goals and re-do our schedules to ensure we are a success at our goals. So we'll l do that today :)

I'm going to work off my goals from November We have a lot of great new ideas for 2011. Can't wait to get started!

Thinking of my 2011 goals

Ok, so it's that time again to re-visit, re-vamp, re-create goals for the new year. I'm thinking really hard on this one. 2010 was a little more crazy than I expected it to be and I'm looking forward to taking some control in 2011! (with what God allows of course! Haha! Some times we are not in control at all, this I know!)

So I started my list and I'm working on.

Weight Loss is of course on top of my list.

And eating this...

Won't help me! But it was really really delicious! I blame watching Man vs Food all day yesterday all about burgers! Not a good show to watch when wanting to watch my calories. Ha!

This morning I went to visit my prego bff and her new place. We chatted over a coffee and muffins. I can't wait to meet her little son. She is due in February and I'm sooo excited!

Then I went to hang with my sister to get some things ready for NYE!

She was baking cupcakes and I noticed this little knife she was using.

And It's a knife from my Dental Hygiene kit from when I was in college 10 years ago! ahahah! It was used to mix sealants and stuff. So funny. It made me think about the last 10 years and boy sooooo much has happened in 10 years. Every year made me different, made me stronger, made me grow and made me understand more of who I am. 2011, I'm excited!

What are your 2011 goals!?
