I’m desperately trying to keep writing my “Things I’m Loving” series on a more regular basis because there are so many things to be thankful for, and things to enjoy, despite what the newspapers tell us. It’s these small moments when I step back and reflect on my week that makes me realize how good I truly have it, even if I didn’t eat as healthy as I had hoped or worked out as hard as I had wanted.
This week I’m reminiscing and loving my Brookie-boo… I can’t believe that 6 yrs has gone by already! I remember the day I had her so clearly: Woke up at 7 am, was outside playing in the sandbox with then 2 yr old Sierra by 7:15 while drinking a coffee and I couldn’t get comfy – by 8 am I was in labor and by 11:22 am I was holding my second daughter!
This week I’m also loving the amazing weather. Up here in Canada, it hasn’t been super hot out, nor cold, or too rainy. It’s been a perfect mix. Perfect enough for my Brookie-boo to celebrate her birthday with an awesome pool party with 5 of her friends (plus her two sisters):
Summer also means something else for me… it’s time for my guilty TV pleasure: Big Brother!!! I totally love that show! Why? I really don’t know, perhaps it’s because it’s the ONE show that my hubby will actually watch WITH me.
And finally, this week I’m loving the Gym-Pact app. Tonight I got out for a run, even though I TOTALLY did not want to run after hosting Brooke’s party, but if I didn’t get 30 min of tracked movement in then I’d have to pay $5… so being the cheap-o that I am, I got out and ran. And then it started raining on me. And I had to keep running just so I didn’t have to pay.
Got my run done!
