It's about time!!

Oh My Goodness, It has almost been a whole month since I did my last blog post!  So many things have been going on and quite frankly, I just haven't had time to even think about it.

We got Brian's mom home from the nursing home (she had fallen and broken her hip and was rehabbing at the nursing home), and we thought things were going pretty good.  Then on Easter Sunday, she fell again and broke her other hip.  So, we have been traveling a LOT back and forth to Grove to help out, stay the night with her and we also helped get them moved to a smaller house.  So, it has been a very stressful time.

Even though Brian's mom was in the hospital on Easter, we still got together with the kids for dinner.  We had a good time and Madelyn really enjoyed hunting for her Easter Eggs!

Everyone had a good time and we enjoyed a delicious dinner!

We loved being able to eat outside for the first time this year!  Not sure how I managed to get photos of everyone but Nick and Lauren, but trust me they were there!!

Mads had a play date and Miss Olivia and Julie came over to hang out with us!  They had a blast!  Madelyn just wanted to hug Olivia and touch her, I'm not convinced that Olivia wanted it to happen.....

My workouts have been a bit sporadic with all that is going on, but I'm hanging in there.  I am LOVING the Les Mills PUMP workouts.  A LOT!  We started a new challenge this week and I have stuck to the program this week and my muscles are feeling it!  I love that too!  I am following the meal plan from The Eat Clean Diet -  Vegetarian.  I've had some yummy food, but I did slip up a bit yesterday and had some jalapeno poppers and sweet potato tots!  So, I have a little more work to do!

I have been so stressed that I am thankful that I have my workouts to keep it at bay somewhat!

Things are starting to settle down a little bit, so I am hopeful that it will stay that way!  I hope that I can get back to the blog on a more consistent basis!
