Backyard FUN

We were blessed with AMAZING weather this week-end which means lots of "outside" time! Here are a few pictures of my boys and The HUBBY!

Oh, and hubby got lots of extra "brownie points" for redeeming himself about my birthday. (he had to work late and even forgot to tell me Happy birthday before he left for work!!!)

Well this is how it goes.... Saturday early evening came around and our babysitter found me with both boys at my feet...."SURPRISE!".
What???? (Hubby was still outside finishing yard work.)

She told me that Hubby called her earlier in the week and asked if she could watch the kiddos so he could take me out!?!?!?!?!?
Ok, I don't know about you ladies...but I ALWAYS PLAN EVERYTHING... the place, the sitter, the reservations, almost down to what he wears!!! No...I'm NOT that "controlling"'s just that it wouldn't get down if I didn't.

Anyway, a smile spread across my face as he walked in and also said "SURPRISE!".

Our GREAT babysitter took over with the boys and I was able to get ready in PEACE...all I was told was "wear a nice dress". get ready without little hands on you (and no telling what's on those hands) and to actually hear the radio!!! It was a great start to an awesome night.

Hubby took me to a VERY nice restaurant on the riverfront and we enjoyed an amazing dinner! Then a stroll along the waterfront...had to burn off some of those calories!
It was a GREAT end to a perfect day! (Started with Bodypump at 8am!!)

Hoping you had an amazing week-end too! Did you exercise????

Have a WONDERFUL week and don't forget to....

Jackson is a MONSTER TRUCK Freak! Yes, that's right...there's no other word to describe his "love" of these little 4 wheeled "creatures" that have taken over my house! Here is a picture of the "line up" he created before nap!

But Guess who woke up AFTER Jackson went down???? Yep...Mr. Blue eye's who also LOVES big brother's trucks...especially when BIG BROTHER is NOT around!
This is the following snapshots!

What are you doing??? This is the RESPONSE I a little laugh!
He was "kicking" them down the stairs!!!

Then he sees a few more by me! HOT PURSUIT!

What's he looking at?? SUCCESS!!


Hope you have an AMAZING week-end with your family! Be sure to get up and...

What is ZUMBA??? It's a Latin Inspired Dance-Fitness class! That's SHAKE YOUR TAILFEATHER and burn MAJOR CALORIES! The BEST part is that's your HAVING FUN and don't notice that's your "working out"!
Like DANCING with the STARS?? You'll LOVE ZUMBA!!! Truly it's a PARTY hour and has great results...especially for us areas are hips and abs...can I get an AMEN!
So go check it out and find a ZUMBA class near you!
I did and LOVED this past week-end I took the "Instructor course" and can now "teach it". Well... it's going to take some PRACTICE to get the music and moves down...but it's my next "fitness" goal. What's yours???

Have a GREAT day!
Oh, and Guess what... I turned 25 AGAIN today!!!

Mommy and Me class BREAKS a record!

I can't BELIEVE IT!!!! There were 23 moms and 11 babies in the Mommy and Me class today!!! What's even CRAZIER is that there were several "regulars" that were least 5 that I can think of right now! HOW AMAZING IS THAT!!!!
WE had an AWESOME work out...sweating like the HOT MOMMAS we are...the energy was ELECTRIC!!!
Wish all of you could come too!
Really it's SO IMPORTANT to exercise for both mental and physical health...but the FELLOWSHIP with other moms also tops the chart! If you don't currently exercise...START!!! Find a walking buddy...a mom that needs to get out too...join a gym...go to an aerobics class...yeah just start your OWN Mommy and Me class. I'll give out some pointers...just ask! REALLY ANYTHING will help. Us Moms need to stick together and EXERCISE!!!
Can't believe we had 23 there today...GOD is GOOD!!!

HAve a wonderful week-end. I'm heading south for a ZUMBA training! Catch up later.

I am blessed beyond belief....and I don't pretend to understand why the world works the way it does. Today I am grateful for EVERYTHING...most importantly my health and that of my family and friends. Try to NOT take what God has given you for granted. I know this momma is taking one day at a time. She is amazing to me...please keep her and her baby Stellan in your prayers today!

Post op day 3

Where has Roxy been??? Well... I've been here...but just a bit busy with Little Man!!!
Jackson is post op day # 3 of Tonsillectomy and 2nd set of tubes in his ears! He's DOING SURPISING WELL...which means JUMPING on the couch and RUNNING around like a wild man with an occasional "Mommy, my throat hurts". Overall, I'm very happy with my little trooper! They say that day #3-5 is the "WORST of it" fingers crossed that the next few days will be as good as the last.
I'll keep you posted!

Oh...and I did FINALLY get to exercise today! After 3 days of NOT doing much I was CRAVING some blood pumping...nothing too crazy today...just a walk.... QUICK walk against the WIND walk! Thanks to NICKIE...fellow Bodypumer for walking with me!!!
hugs to all!
Now go...

Bodypump 69

Did you get your exercise in this week-end????

We sure it was time to LAUNCH BODYPUMP 69 at our gym!!! Every 3 months BP changes the tracks which means NEW MOVES and NEW MUSIC= Lot's of FUN and SORE muscles...GREAT WORKOUT... FITNESS MAGIC!

Here are several of the Bodypump instructors before class...remember it's EARLY Saturday 8am!!!
We each lead the class in a few tracks... mixing it up for the participants and having lots of Fun with the new release!

If you haven't tried the class... WHAT are you waiting for??? It's a GREAT way to get an ENTIRE workout in about an hour! Who doesn't want to increase their strength...what mom doesn't need to be STRONG???? What about some tight tushes or abs???? Can I get an AMEN?!?!?!

If Bodypump is not for you...which can ONLY be DECIDED after a few classes...which means you MUST ACTUALLY GO TO CLASS...then try something different. Something that challenges you physically and mentally (keeping those brain cells in shape)...BUT most importantly GIVES you the "Stress release" that your BODY NEEDS to be a GREAT MOM!

*** My bet is that you'll LOVE BP as much as me!!!! Check it out HERE!

So what are you waiting for???? GET UP and....
