You guys! The sun is finally shining here in Boston after a month of gloomy, gray skies and we couldn’t be happier! Everybody I know was starting to go a little stir crazy, wondering when the warm sun would peak back through, bringing with it summer like temps. Hopefully we’re on the other side of spring and it will only get nicer!
Life lately has been busy, like always. Full of work, chores, house projects, and chasing around a wild toddler. That part is the best! So what else have we been up to? Well, here it is, our life lately!
Life Lately June 2017
What I’m reading (or trying to read): Into the Water: A Novel by Paula Hawkins. I’ve been trying, really trying, to get into this book. Maybe I’m too tired at night or it’s just not catchy enough but so far, I’m on maybe page 8.
What We’re Eating: All the watermelon, like literally all of it. I’ve eaten a whole big one to myself this week since somehow no one else in my house likes it! Also anything on the grill including Applegate’s Organic Hot Dogs (YUM). The ingredients list is fantastic, especially for a hot dog, and I feel good feeding these to L and my husband and I!
What I’m Doing for Exercise: I never thought I’d say this but I have totally jumped on the Beachbody bandwagon. My sister is a coach and talked me into purchasing the All Access Pass which allows you to stream any workout from Beachbody right on your computer, phone, or TV. I find the workouts a lot harder then expected and love that they are only 30-ish minutes. I’ve been waking up 4-5 days a week and knocking it out before L is up and feeling so, so great!
What I’m Looking Forward To: Beach days in my hometown with my dad and step-mom. I think L is going to love it this summer and totally enjoy all the room to run, dig, and get messy. Also SO looking forward to a long visit from my mom and her friend, my sister, her boyfriend, and their little baby boy this summer! They are visiting for 2 weeks in July and I cannot wait! It feels like forever since we’ve all been together!
What L Is Up To: Well, everything! He is obsessed with getting outside, loves giving kisses, wants to constantly be on the go, and soaking up every bit of new knowledge he can. He is working on speech with his weekly Early Intervention visits and while he isn’t saying any words he is babbling a bit more and I think we’re getting closer! He’s a ball of fun, and frustration, and I love him to pieces! Here’s my letter to L at 18 months in case you missed it!
What I’m Craving: A mani/pedi, a delicious brunch, time at the beach, and lobster rolls!!
What I’m Struggling With: Work! Like I’ve said before, I love being a working mom but I am missing so much with my little guy right now. I crave more time with him, dread Monday morning, and by Wednesday it hurts so bad because I miss him. I’m lucky to only work part-time but it doesn’t make it any easier! I love my job but right now I wish I could be home with him more! Also…definitely struggling to not eat All THE ICE CREAM! Somebody help me!
What’s up in your life lately?
What are you struggling with and most looking forward to this summer?
