Hello hello!  I’ve been pretty busy lately and not much time for being on my computer.  I have a few topics I want to talk about though coming up so I will work on getting those posted.  For now, a weekend recap like usual!

We had the prettiest snow on Friday!  Luckily the gym wasn’t closed this time.  Rob had off from work so we both headed over and got a good workout in.  The usual trainer had to leave so the workout had a different feel than normal.  Lots of fast reps.  I had a hard time keeping up but did my best.

Friday night, my cousin was having a painting party to raise funds for missions trips for her church.  It was a family affair with my cousin, aunt (center of photo), mom (right), and sister all there!  We were painting a pair of birds on a board with the word “Love” hanging from a wire.

I can’t just do what I’m told and love being creative so I did what my mom recommended and used my wedding date.  She said the year but we figure out how to do the whole date.  I also thought it looked empty at the top so I added our names.

I absolutely love the way it came out!  I just have to find a place to hang it in the house now.  Definitely glad I changed it up to make it more personal!  I really love painting and this made me want to bust my supplies out of storage!  Afterwards, my mom and I went to grab a late dinner at the local diner.  Girl’s night out!

Saturday, Rob and I spent the day trying to get 10,000 steps toward my walking goals.  When started at the mall but when we got bored , we went to a local park instead and walked around the old glass factory ruins and then through the trails in the woods.

As you can see, the snow didn’t stick around.  It was in the 40s that day.  We blew our step goal out of the water with 12000 steps.  I proceeded to sit on the coach the rest of the day, I was so tired.  Rob kept telling me how exhausted I looked!

I got to spend more time this week with Abigail again!  Oh, I mean my friend Callista (and Abigail is SO CUTE!!).  Seriously, look at those cheeks!

Then its back to normal programming this week.  I hit the gym today and might run later.  Although I am feeling the sniffles coming on, a hot shower might be a better idea.  Run tomorrow instead?

I have some more stuff coming up and I have time for blogging today so I will work on getting those started.  I have new apps I am using and I finished reading both books I had going!  A book review will come up soon for that.  I loved it but I don’t think its for everyone.  You’ll see!

Well, now its time to shower and make this oncoming cold go away (happens every time after my bullpen workouts – my body just trying to repair itself).  Then a nice healthy lunch, checking things off my to-do list, and maybe a little blogging and reading!
