No pain, No gain

Yesterday we decided to walk/run the trails at Lady Bird Lake with some friends. We took both the girls and had HIGH hope of success. Not too sure what we were labeling as success, just hoping for success.

Av was definitely dressed for the trails and man did she look cute!! I am talking black leggings, cute sport zip up jacket wearing a blue shirt with her pink running shoes on and I can't forget the ponytail!!

Em, well she was sporting the jogging stroller. What else does a 9 month old need on the trails??

So, as you can see we started off GREAT with positive spirits and energy. (see picture of Av next to the statue). Then it got better, we were getting into a groove of walking and taking turns entertaining my 5 year old. (see second picture of the beautiful trail). Then IT happened...she fell!!! You would have thought that someone was stealing her the way she was screaming. Long story short... She ended up in the stroller and Em in my arms. Which actually gave me a REALLY good workout.

After the trails my friend wanted to do lunges, squats, step ups, and jumping jacks. My legs were BURNING!!!

When I woke up this morning my body didn't feel too bad. I was impressed with myself. But as the day went on the soreness was setting in. Well I am finally home after a long but amazing day and I am in need of some help with the pain(see third picture)...but have no fear another workout is near!!!

The Tower

Last night was the 75th birthday of the UT Tower.

This tower gives me GREAT was where my husband proposed to me!! YES, on top of the tower in front of everyone on the tour he bent down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes of course and we when got to the bottom, to my surprise, there was our family to help us celebrate a wonderful evening!!

Tonight on our way home we drove by and saw it all lit up with its beauty glowing.


Trying New Things

With lunch today I am trying the Greek yogurt everyone has been talking about. Even Pinterest has recipes where it's used.

So my hubby bought some and put it in my lunch box, here goes to trying new things!!

I found it to be very flavorful but the texture is a little too thick for me. Although I like the idea of saying " I had Greek Yogurt for lunch," I'm not sure I will be eating it again.

But at least I can tell my 5 year old, almost 6, that I tried something new today.


I am addicted to this stuff!! I put it on everything and when I don't have it I am very sad.

Right now I have it stored at school and last night I NEEDED it. Avi tried to get me to use a different brand, name untold, but I just couldn't.

But no worries I used it on my lunch today and YUMMY!!!

I guess I need to buy another bottle to leave at home. :)

Friday Night Plans

We had big plans to go to opening day of UT baseball but unfortunatly the rain decided to change our plans. :( the game was postponed to sometime tomorrow. So we decided to head to Louisiana Longhorn Cafe with our friends Tyler and Angie. We had a great time catching up with each other and enjoyed REALLY good food. If you are ever in downtown Round Rock you should definitely check it out!!

All about Avery

Today Avery attempted to recite a poem in an oratorical contest. She became overwhelmed by the number of people in the crowd and it didn't happen. Either way SO proud of her!! We took her out to supper, her choice. We told her she could pick anywhere she wanted. Expecting McDonalds or Chickfila, I was surprised when she asked for Hooters. YES Hooters!!! Then she follows with "Mom, they have the best hotdogs". So off to Hooters we went for supper.

Later on after supper she attempted to get her lose tooth out using dental floss. Too funny to watch. I wanted to include the picture of the floss fun but for whatever reason I am having no luck. I will need my blogging friends help me out tomorrow.

Until next time...
