I recently told Alex that I was ready for fall to get here. I know that summer just started, but having a baby has changed my love for summer. The heat is insane and I don't like to get Amelia out in it for long periods of time. We've spent a lot of time at home...watching movies and playing. When her nap time rolls around, we pile up on my bed and watch a movie and she watches until she falls asleep. I either finish the movie or fall asleep next to her! :)
I'm currently going through lots of party ideas for Amelia's 1st birthday. I'm a planner and like to have plenty of time to make decisions. I'm getting very excited and have lots of ideas. I believe that birthdays are special and everyone should feel especially loved on their day. I have planned many birthday parties for my nephews over the years. My sister always let me take over and do whatever I wanted and I loved it! She knew that I loved to plan a party. And now I have my own baby girl to plan a party for...it makes my heart so happy, just the thought of it.
I've been working out with a trainer for over a month now. Twice a week. Joy watches Amelia for me...I'm so thankful for her!! Trying to get the rest of this post-baby weight off is not easy. I haven't lost major pounds yet, but I'm already seeing a difference in my clothes. I know what size I feel best in, so I'm just trying to focus on that vs. losing a certain number of pounds. I did push-ups for the first time in my life and I thought I was going to die. I have no upper body strength. And they were girl push-ups! To say that my body is out of shape is an understatement. Or WAS an understatement. I'm getting there...slowly, but surely! :)
I went to a spa party last night. My neighbor hosted it and it was a lot of fun. She made a strawberry salad and fruity drinks that were delicious! I just walked across the street, was pampered for an hour, and then walked back to my house! It was nice. :)
We're gearing up for the 4th of July. We have my nephew's birthday on Saturday, church on Sunday, and then head to my Uncle's lake house for the rest of the weekend. Should be fun!!
Do you have special plans for the 4th?
Love to all,
