I am pumped up o endorphins from teaching PUMP/CX this morning at the YMCA! And I have the day off work. And we are busy packing up to head to the Lake for the weekend. It’s a good day!
I didn’t mean to disappear for the last month. . . as you can imagine, two kids + full time job + summer running + teaching BODYPUMP + life = busy!!
And honestly, it’s been the same things over here. . .
Jake is getting bigger. 6 months old already!
I’m still teaching BODYPUMP and CXWORX twice per week at the YMCA.
Summer trips to the Lake.
Family runs. We bought another BOB running stroller. .. Scott pushes Jake and I push our 50 pound 5 year old. *We are working on Luke riding his bike with us instead of riding in the stroller!
Scott and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary!
Luke is still an amazing big brother.
And Abby’s a pretty good big sister.
So, if you need me, you know where you can find me.
Have a great weekend!!
I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. .. we were at the Lake – it. was. wonderful.
Just thought I’d pop in and share a little life update and weekend recap.
We’ve been enjoying the spring sunshine.
And this stuff is amazing. I love it on avocado toast or hard boiled eggs.
Loving that we live just a few blocks from the boys’ school.
My new favorite flavor!
Luke and Mom movie date.
sometimes you just have to nap. . . in the middle of the house.
Making cookies with my boys.
Luke is such a great big brother.
5 months old!
Feeling the love with a birthday cupcake.
And a Caribou gift card from my favorite girls.
My 35th birthday started out with birthday BODYPUMP.
And dinner with my family and sisters at Red Robin. Yum!
Followed by ice cream!
And then we headed to the Lake for the weekend.
First boat ride.
Time on the dock.
And <love> with #gopackgo
Time to get ready for work! Hope you had a great one.
I just dropped Luke off at school. Jake is snoozing in his car seat. And I am soaking in my last two days of maternity leave before going back to work on Wednesday.
We had a great week over Luke’s spring break. . .
Lots of brother time.
My favorite cheap activity. Water play time in the sink! He played for over an hour! #parentingwin
Trips to the library. We recently started reading chapter books together before bed and I LOVE it!
Perler beads for hours of entertainment.
Getting so big! And why are animals on feet so adorable?
Fun at the Children’s Museum.
And fro yo.
The bummer of the week. . . everyone getting colds.
Living off of these balls. And I added shredded unsweetened coconut. Life changing.
Celebrating Scott’s birthday on Saturday.
And if you need me over the next two days. . .you can find me right here.
Hope you had a great weekend! Anything super fun??
Today is my first day alone with the boys!
So far, so good.
Both kids are dressed and fed. Winning.
We had a great weekend of doing nothing around here!
Friday snuggles while watching the Inauguration coverage.
Up bright and early Saturday morning. Thank goodness for spark.
My running partner.
One month old!
Saturday night date with friends at Pizza Ranch.
Sunday morning muffins. Thanks to Krusteaz for sending me yummy muffins!
I haven’t posted anything about Abby in a while. . . she is doing good! You can usually find her in “her spot” on the couch.
Sunday morning started with a quick run and BODYPUMP 100. I am in love with the triceps, biceps and lunge tracks. I cannot wait to get back to teaching to teach it!
Followed by track building. #lifeofamom
Baby wearing for the win to get dinner ready while taking care of 2 kids.
Evening nap on the living room floor.
It was a great weekend with my little family!
Wish me luck for the rest of my first day at home with the boys! Goals for the day include running during nap time, taking a shower, and tummy time.
Hope you have a great Monday! How was your weekend??
Hey there, remember me?
Yup, still pregnant.
38 weeks on Saturday and going strong.
Repeat C-section scheduled for 12/21, so unless he decides to come early, I’ll for sure have a new baby boy in 9 days! It’s getting real.
Thankfully, we are ready.
Well as ready as you can be to be sleep deprived. . .
Although we still need a name. . . Baby Boy Thompson has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
But otherwise, we’ve been keeping busy around here. . .
Went to see Santa.
Put up the Christmas tree.
Children’s Museum with friends.
Our first big snow.
Checking out BOYDPUMP 100. Whoa chest, biceps and shoulders!
And still teaching pump. My last class before baby is tomorrow!
Still going strong at work. And thank goodness for co-workers that make me laugh.
Getting presents wrapped. Spider man paper picked out special by Luke for the presents he is giving this year.
Enjoying couch snuggle time with my first baby.
I’ll be back tomorrow (craziness!) with my Christmas Wish List!
Hope you had a great weekend!! What have you been up to lately??
Guess who actually remembered to take pictures of the weekend?
Kicked off the weekend teaching BODYPUMP at the YMCA and taking 25 week bump pictures with my favorite little man. . .
Followed by half caf latte + real clothes.
and a trip to the Farmer’s Market.
waiting is hard work.
furniture shopping. . . need a new nightstand for Luke’s room. He thought we should totally get the bunk beds.
Trip to the park.
Sunday morning = cinnamon rolls + puppy snuggles.
Followed by CXWORX class at the YMCA x 3 . . . Some of my fellow instructors were videotaping their assessment videos, so we did the class three times in a row! I was t.o.a.s.t. afterwards!
And promptly came home and spent the next 4 hours on the couch watching football. It. was. glorious.
Finished off the weekend with crockpot pot roast + apple cheesecake bars.
Hope you are having a great Monday!! What were you up to this weekend??
I am linking up with Katie (and Erin) for Marvelous in my Monday!
Hey! It’s been way to long!! I know, I know. . . it’s all my fault.
Anyway, I’m here today to share a little recap of our second week of vacation. Spoiler alert, we’ve gotten really good at just hanging out and not actually doing much of anything. . . #staycation
We had a play date . . . complete with ice cream.
I attended CXWORX training.
Now.. .just working on quickly learning the rest of the release so I can videotape while I can still lie on my growing belly!
I finally framed our family photos and had Scott hang up a picture ledge.
Lots of park play time.
And puppy walks + a baby belly.
We are headed to the Lake this weekend with some friends. Looking forward to sunshine, boat rides and lots of laughing.
Your plans for the weekend?? Favorites from the week?
Linking up for Friday fun with Heather!
We’ve had a great week of vacation here. . . it’s been nice to not have any plans! I am looking forward to the weekend because I am taking Les Mills CXWORX training. .. I’ll be honest that I’m a little bummed to be spending a summer sunshine filled weekend in the gym, but fingers crossed that it will be fun and worth it. I’ll be back next week with a recap for you!!
Here is a few of the things we’ve been up to this week:
Abby went to the groomers.
We checked out a new beach in town.
I went to the Lion King with my Mom, sister and Aunt.
Luke and I went to the Children’s Museum.
And #reallife happens. Chocolate milk everywhere.
Also, I’ve been running, teaching BODYPUMP – still loving 98, getting ready for CXWORX training, and going for family walks.

Luke taking over my phone and seeing the results.. .

Looking for my linkup? I’ve decided to take a break from Friday link ups, but I’m still going to link up Friday fun with Heather!
Hey there! Happy Tuesday!
I am extra happy today because I finally figured out my picture situation. . . well . . .unfortunately, I really don’t know what the problem was, all I know, is that it’s working now!
I almost had a heart attack last week when I realized that was scheduled to work this last weekend – Country Fest weekend! In the past 9 years, Fest has always been the last weekend in June. . . and this year, they switched it. . . but I never double checked the dates! Laura randomly texted me about getting ready for the weekend, and then I realized, OMG, I am scheduled to work all weekend. Thank goodness, I have some amazing co-workers and it just happened that one gal wanted an couple extra shifts, so I was able to have the weekend off.
And it was awesome. Beautiful weather. Great times with my sister. And Carrie Underwood!
Here’s a look at the weekend.. .
Special K bars. .. means Abby gets to lick a peanut butter jar.
Driving the tractor.
Picnic lunch on the boat.
Squirt gun fights.
All tuckered out.
Country Fest time!
Craft time. . .. just wait until you see the wreaths we made – SO cute!!
And the total highlight of Fest this year – Carrie Underwood!!
And Sam Hunt.
Whew. Such a good weekend. . . and now back to work!
How was your weekend?? Highlight??
