Five hodgepodge-ish things this Friday…
ONE: Today marks the beginning of the Avey Month-O-Birthdays…starting with my main man Lance turning 35 today!
Next up is Allison (see more on that below), then Jack, and then me at the end of October. It’s not like we planned it this way (exactly)…it’s just how nature intended. Clearly God wants me to earn any sort of birthday fun I have by first stressing out over everyone else’s birthdays. Think of how cool it will be when we can take joint bday trips…I mean that will happen right? Without the kids also insisting on gifts?! right…???? Or I’ll just take MYSELF on a trip after surviving birthday-maggedon…
TWO: Allison turns ONE ON MONDAY. WHAT?! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! Not to sound all cliche but seriously this year went by really fast. I still call her my “sweet baby” and I might be calling her my baby till she’s 35…who knows. We had her one year pictures taken on Monday and Becca already gave me a little sneak peek (below) and I’m dying! Allison was so much better than her brother that we actually got some pics of JUST HER! I feel like she deserves her own post detailing all the ONE-year things…so maybe I’ll get around to that next week after my hormones calm the f down…
THREE: Speaking of hormones…I got my period this week for the first time since pre-Allison. I felt like a 13yr old girl again scrambling around looking for tampons (who are we kidding I was scared of tampons till I was like 17)…only to remember DUH I was pregnant when we moved so obviously I didn’t have any. As I was texting my friend about it (obviously) it reminded me how much I miss our girls nights where we would discuss such lovely things…basically like this video (LOVE these moms…they’re from Nebraska too so woot woot!)
“I get pre-pre-menstrual, then pre-menstrual, then I’m menstrual, then I’m post menstrual…then I get real horny for 2 days…whaaaattt” <—– yep thats me.
FOUR: Along with all the birthdays we’re having a lot of visitors this month starting with my little sister and her boyfriend this weekend. While I love having visitors and extra helping hands…I also know that my kids wake up ass early (making staying up late extra painful) and Jack is always
a little nuts unbearable on little sleep and more than normal attention. So I really hope I make it through this month without any family members disowning me and/or the neighbors calling CPS on me. Yay!
FIVE: Now that Allison is basically one and I’m done with the breastfeeding biz…I feel like it’s time to get serious about working out again. I’ve been running here and there…some weeks I do well and others not so well due to lack of sleep from a teething baby. Thanks to KCMB I got to try both yoga and barre for the first time this past month. I realize I’m super late to the yoga train but it’s true…I had never taken an actual yoga class up until this point.
I really enjoyed both…barre is definitely more up my ally with the resistance/muscle training. Unfortunately the studio is like a 30min drive for me so I can’t justify the cost/time it would be to do it consistently enough. Brittany is also tempting me with her challenge groups through beachbody…which I’m also a huge fan of after doing Insanity and T25…so we’ll see 😉 This month is all about survival so it will probably be another month before I get too serious!
*BONUS*: Um I just have to say that football season is starting out AWESOME this year…both the Huskers and Vikings are undefeated so far…what?! Oh and the Utes! I definitely didn’t see that coming…nor do I know how long it will last so better revel in it now while we can!
