Weekend Recap

Happy Monday you guys!  I'm still on maternity leave, and happy as a clam despite being  up since 2 am thanks to some demanding little munchkins!  We may not know our days from nights, but spending time with them is precious, so that makes Monday a-okay with me! 

This weekend was mostly spent straightening up and continuing medication that we began in our hospital stay last week.  My daughter, Rosalia, has a hemangioma on her head that has begun to ulcerate, so we are trying an oral medication to help it to heal and go away. We spent 48 hours at Johns Hopkins so she could be monitored and a LOT of time snuggling.  She was definitely a little worried about her surroundings and was soooo glad to spend this weekend at home!

Saturday we were up and at 'em for a 5K race at my husbands school that he had helped plan.  We missed the race.  Do you know how long it takes to get ready when you have to pump and feed 2 babies before you leave?  I didn't even shower and it still took us over 2 hours to get out the door.  Holy crap.  I'm in for some super early wake ups when I get back to work and that is something I can certainly wait for.

The rest of the day was a whirlwind trying to run errands, nap, and getting everything ready for our neighborhood block party.  Every year we have it I begin the day stressed and unprepared, but end up having a blast by the time it's all said and done.  Everyone brings food and their own beverages.  We eat until the sun goes down and then it's time for songs around the fire.  Really.  I swear I don't live on Sesame Street, my neighbors are actually like that.  Just another reason why I love my home so much!

Oh yea, and before I go, I have an announcement to make.  I made a move this weekend that I'd been thinking about for a while and finally after years of recruitment, my friend Steph was finally able to reel me in.... I've decided to become a Beachbody coach!  Although I'm not much of a salesman, something about this company just feels right with my soul and aligns with everything that I value deep inside.  Excited to get going on this new adventure in wellness!
