It's FRIDAY!! Tomorrow is SATURDAY!!!

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know where the time has gone. Wasn't it just Monday?! We've had a busy week around here. Those boys are feeling MUCH better. Thank Goodness! They are much more pleasant to be around when they feel good. And, even better for Mom and Dad is that they have been sleeping all night for the past few nights. I'm convinced it's a trick. My kids don't sleep. They have to be up to something. 
I don't know if I had mentioned, but we have a crawler in our house. Yup, Mr. Shrek has been army crawling for almost two weeks now. He thinks he is a VERY. BIG. DEAL. I think I am in VERY. BIG. TROUBLE.

He decided he didn't like the toys I had laid out for him and his brother so he crawled over to the toy basket to get some more.  He's also been obsessed with the play mats lately. I haven't been putting them out for them to play on because Shrek keeps getting himself tangled up in them. See below....
He kept crawling over to them so I decided to set one out for them.






Donkey has no interest in crawling. He doesn't move very much at all. He can roll. I've seen him do it, but he prefers to just lay there. I guess he assumes I will get whatever he wants for him. That turkey.

Big Sister Diva has learned to pick the boys up and put them in her lap. This has been very exciting. We still have to remind her to be gentle! and that their heads are attached to their body. No matter how rough she is with her brothers these boys LOVE their sister. They light up every time she is near them. They do not mind her holding them.














I met some friends I hadn't seen in a while for lunch yesterday. 
I left early and stopped by the office where I used to work to see everyone. 
Carter and "RoRo" were color coordinated so naturally we had to have a picture :)
                 


















Diva has dance lessons on Wednesday nights. Afterwards Mr. Hubs took her to CherryBerry for a treat. It was very exciting!
Can you tell her leotard is on backwards?
He text me to say that she had Bubblegum ice cream with captain crunch, gummy bears, sour worms and pop rocks as her toppings. Ugh, makes my belly hurt. He then said she was going to make mine for me...um, Yay? Thank goodness she didn't!
It's gorgeous outside today. Finally...those gray days were getting me down. I know how seasonal effective disorder feels! The boys and I decided to go to the grocery store (Target) before nap time. It was Shrek's first time sitting in the cart like a big boy! He did not say a single word the entire time we were in the store. Bizarre....
I wore Donkey while we were there because he is 3 pounds lighter. I think that is funny now to say because when they were smaller I always wore Shrek because Donkey was so small. How things change in such a short amount of time! I'm not real sure why I look so serious in the picture. I must have been concentrating!
It's been a very busy and FUN week. The weekend is going to be just as busy. Mr. Hubs and I get to go out tomorrow night with a friend and act like real adults. No baby talk or diaper changes for hours!

7 Year Itch...

Things are changing y'all.... About six weeks ago I applied for a part time therapist job, on a whim. A month went by and I had not heard anything about the job, I assumed it wasn't going to happen and carried on with life. Then I got a phone call asking me to come in for an interview! Over the course of the month between applying for the job and the interview I had talked myself out of wanting to do it. Cause, that's what I do. I went into the interview thinking it would just be good practice and I had zero intentions of pursuing the position.  Last year I applied for a job I really wanted. It was somewhere I had always wanted to work and was so excited about the prospect. I was told that the job was mine, then I was emailed and told that a former employee had emailed and said she might be moving back to Tulsa and they were going to give the position to her. I was devastated. Then a few weeks later I was emailed again offering me the job again. Needless to say I declined b…

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

I See The Light....

When I left you guys I had just taken a new part time job! Happy to say that is going well. I started the week of Spring Break, so that was not the best timing, but it worked out. Then the kids were in school for a week and our Oklahoma teachers walked out. Thankfully #1 cheers at a gym that is full of teenage girls willing to babysit. I won't lie. There have been some growing pains, and I still haven't figured out how to keep up with my laundry. There are days I work well past 2pm and the kids beat me home from school. Every highway in TTown is under construction and getting downtown to work by 8am is nearly impossible. I think it is understood by my new employers that I will be perpetually late for eternity because they are never going to finish the construction. But, overall I like my new job. I like being around grown ups, and the extra $$$ is a nice perk.
Spring time in the Mayer house is notoriously a busy busy time for us. We have millions of end of the school year thin…
