Another great weekend has come and gone. This past weekend my husband and I cut the lawn for the first time! We had our home built last year and had to go through the whole seeding of grass/going with a landscaper deal. Well, we finally have a lawn and got to cut it. The lawn cutting was actually fun (we will see if I am saying that come July). I took a few pictures (be warned this picture is post workout with no make-up or shower).
We did get a bit fancy with the lawn cutting, trying the diagonal stripes (we will see if this also continues come July).
So far my Monday has been going well. I don’t feel my usual case of the Mondays today. I think this could be due to a few things. I worked out this morning, because I have to stay a bit late at work tonight. I managed to get in 4 miles, and they were 4 good miles all at a pace of 11:45/mile at times even 11:06 (which is fantastic for me). I came home, showered, spent some time with Emma and made a great breakfast.
This is by far my favorite breakfast, and it’s very filling! I arrived at work around 10:00am, feeling energized and ready for the day. Had a great morning meeting with my supervisor, and am looking forward to what my afternoon brings. So overall a great start!
Also, did I mention I have a short week this week?? That’s right; I have off this Thursday, Friday and Monday. My husband and I will be heading to Wisconsin to spend time with my family. Not only do I get to spend some quality time with my husband (yes we are that couple that actually enjoy spending time together), I get to see my parents! I CAN’T WAIT!! I MISS MY FAMILY SO MUCH!! I am an only child and cherish every second I can spend with my family. My parents are not only the most loving parents a girl could ask for, they are also some of my very best friends!! My husband and parents get along great as well, so it’s basically like a group of friends enjoying each other’s company.
This morning on my way to work I was thinking a lot of my grandma Hornke, today marks 10 years since the Lord brought her home. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I have cracked jokes with this spitfire. She is one of the people that helped make me into the person I am today. Yes, that’s right I am feisty, spirited and won’t take s*it from anyone because of my grandma!! Anyone that has met this lady knows exactly what I mean. When picking out my outfit this morning, I made sure to wear some yellow (this was her favorite color). I wish I could give her a big hug, and listen to her call my dad a horse’s a$$!
Well, that pretty much sums wraps up my day on this beautiful Monday. My thoughts today are very scattered but I thought I would share. Enjoy your day!
