Just Thinking Out Loud Today

Join me today as I'm Thinking Out Loud . . . 

My day started at 5:30 am with the sounds of little kids fighting over who would get to cuddle up to me in my bed since daddy wasn't home from work yet. Those who know me, know that I am not a morning person at all and I may have given a bit of ‘tude when I suggested they both get in bed and stop talking. The funny thing is they didn't seem to be fazed by grumpy morning voice, and just laid down next to me and everyone was quiet for about 5 minutes. It was bliss. Until they decided building something out of Lego would be a good idea. To which I promptly lifted my arm and pointed to the door. Words weren't needed. They knew it was time to get the eff out of there and play in their rooms.

My hubby and I have been thinking of cheap and cheerful ways to entertain the kids all summer while having some quality family time in the process. We decided camping would be awesome (cheap) but we hate tent camping so we bought a tent trailer (not-so cheap). We can’t wait to take this baby out. Our first trip with the kids in this bad boy will be Father’s Day weekend. Wish us luck !

My hubby and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago, and even though he had to work all weekend, he surprised me with roses that morning when he got home from working his night shift.

Since I’m getting ready to go on vacation this summer, my brother’s girlfriend and I have embarked on a fitness challenge to help us get in shape. We have a series of 5 exercises a day, 3 rounds of each and when we don't do the workouts, we have to put a dollar in a jar for the other person. Since I am a loonie hoarder, I have no intention of missing a day and paying her at the end of the challenge!

Speaking of getting fit and healthy, I joined Weight Watchers last week. I'm a re-offender, but I'm OK with that. I know that the program works, and it’s really simple to follow. I hate counting calories, somehow the Smart Points make it easier to remember what the value of each food is. I'm super pumped; I have my first weigh in today. Wish me luck!

  2. Camping sounds like a great idea! Growing up, my family had a pop-up camper and I remember having so much fun. Like you, we weren't a fan of tent camping. Happy Anniversary! I really like your fitness challenge idea. There's just something so rewarding when there is a friendly competition going on.
