Life Lately

I can't believe the fourth was already almost two weeks ago.  This Summer is flying by way too fast!  We kept it low key this year with a celebration on the third and spent the actual fourth stuffing our faces with friends and taking the kids to the movies.

I'm becoming quickly addicted to the Trader Joe's $3.99 sunflowers.  I don't know what I am going to do when they don't have them! They're my favorite dining room accessory!

Avery went to a painting birthday party the other, and I am totally enthralled with the idea.  It was such a great party and she was so proud of her art!

To balance the painting party out, we took Greyson to Legoland in West Chester.  It's pretty basic, but both kids absolutely loved it!  

On the days when Greyson is in his camp, Avery and I do girl things.  We had breakfast and mani/pedis the other morning.  It's so nice to get some one on one time with her, because home girl is all of the jeals of her brother.  She's like a different person when it is just me and her and I love seeing her smile!

Don't let these little faces fool you - they have been giving me a run for my money lately!

I can't forget my other trouble maker.  On days when I can't get to the gym, she makes sure to lay down on the mat while I do Barre3 online and licks my face incessantly during any ab work.  It's a whole new kind of motivation.

What post would be complete without a barrage of my attempts at healthier eating?  I am trying to add lemon to all of my water.  It's hard to drink hot water with lemon in our AC-less house, so a slice goes in most cups of water.  I'm also newly addicted to Starbucks cold brew.  Best drink on the menu IMHO.  I'm also becoming obsessed with their egg white and turkey bacon sandwich.  It's so satisfying to a breakfast sandwich lover like me.  I take off one piece of the english muffin and add some green juice to round it out.  

Greyson is off to camp now and my little lady and I are having our last day date together!  I'm sure a cold brew and that breakfast sandwich will be involved!

Have a fabulous day!

  6. OMG yes, gimme all the donuts! And the iced coffee. I could use both right about now! And I feel you on the doggy kisses while trying to workout at home. Anytime I get on the floor during a work out my pup is right there attacking my face with kisses haha! The struggle is real!

  7. OMG! Stop it! Taylor's party was at Pinotte's Palette as well! So funny!

  8. This whole year has gone by crazy fast! I tried putting lemon in my water around the new year, it didn't last long, but I liked it. Looks like y'all have been having a great summer!
