A weekend with babes.

Posted on | January 27, 2014 | 3 Comments

On Friday morning, I decided to load up the babies and head to visit family because Taylor was headed TDY for another trip in two weeks, and the idea of spending a weekend alone with babies just seemed overwhelming. Sometimes, you just need a break, you know? And you really need a break when the idea of packing up everyone’s things, loading up a dog, and driving three hours without any help for potty breaks or snacks sounds better than spending one more minute in your house.

I’m exaggerating. It really wasn’t that bad, but I was feeling antsy to do something, anything, so off we went!

So, we headed to see my family. And we went to see “Frozen”! It’s the first movie we have ever taken Arlo to see, and I was anxious about how he would handle the theater.

He got antsy after thirty minutes, but Sully was a rock star through the whole movie. And also? “Frozen” is hilarious and wonderful. BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR! Maybe not, but close.

I went to the opening of a CrossFit gym in town. It was a Partner WOD, and I ended up being paired with a brand new CrossFitter. She felt bad because she thought she was holding me back, but I was so proud of her putting herself out there and doing an incredibly hard work out. It was:

Four Rounds of:

50 Plate Squats (25lbs)
40 Kettlebell Swings (35lbs)
30 Wall Balls (15lbs)
20 Sit ups
10 Deadlifts (155lbs)

I was able to RX it (do it at the suggested weight), and I felt so good. We set up separate stations for my partner, and I hope I encouraged her enough. She did amazing for her first WOD, and I wish I had her confidence!

Finally, I took the boys to a birthday party on Sunday at a local gymnastics studio. The had an amazing time!

At this moment, I’m having a glass of wine and waiting for my dishes to finish so I won’t have any to worry about tomorrow before I head to work.

How was your weekend?

    My weekend was a bit lonely. My hubby just got moved to a weekend shift and this was the first one. I did notice however, I was able to get sooo much more done with him out of the way. Funny how that works :)

    My weekend was awesome. I had the best little movie dates, tons of snuggles, and lots of laughs. Thanks for asking, oh….and sharing the babies! 😉

    Sounds like a great weekend. Whenever Andy has to work weekends I always get jittery and antsy and try to find things to full the time. He was actually off this weekend and we had no commitments so we were just lazy and lounged around with the girls.
