Happy Monday!

I’m so sorry I have been absent the past couple of weeks. With living at my parents’ the first week that we moved (since we weren’t able to live in our house), finally moving in last Monday, unpacking and adjusting to a new home and routine, things have been crazy to say the least! Also, my brother, sister-in-law and nieces flew in last Tuesday, so we have been enjoying spending time with them while finding time to unpack and settle in. With so many things to do, I  haven’t had much energy to turn on my computer, let alone write a post, but I have missed you all in the blog world! I’m hoping to get back to my usual schedule of posts this week, as things seem to be getting back to normal.

After a very productive weekend unpacking, I’m finally feeling more settled and somewhat back to our normal routine, though I still need to find time to fit in my workouts. I’m having withdrawals of not doing CrossFit the past two weeks! Every time I think of doing a WOD, I feel guilty about all of the boxes staring at me just waiting to be unpacked! Ugh…I can’t wait until everything is unpacked and we can truly start “living” in our house! But, as I have said before, it’s all about making the time to exercise, so I’m listening to my own advice and scheduling my WODs for the week, doing them while Keenan naps. Since we don’t have our garage gym built yet, I’ll be doing my WODs outside with gymnastic based movements and using minimal equipment, except for my kettle bell, jump rope and abmat.  I’ll keep you posted on how they go!

Since this past weekend was so marvelous with everything that we got done, I’m linking up with Katie for Marvelous In My Monday. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve linked up, but I always love her fun link up party. If you haven’t checked out her blog, you have to see her adorable little guy, Rocco! He is so precious.

Going from this (when we first moved)…

Having a relaxing 4th of July spending it with family at my parents’ house.

Introducing Keenan to a few fireworks and sparklers, thanks to Uncle E. By the way, Keenan is fascinated with fireworks and couldn’t stop talking about them for two days!


Getting ready to head to the beach the end of this week with my family (I’m SO ready for a vacation!)!

Oh and before I forget, I’m SUPER excited about an awesome giveaway I’m hosting in honor of my blog’s one year anniversary! I’ll be announcing it soon, so stay tuned!

Have a good one!
