Christmas With The Mayer's

We survived! I think anyone who has children knows what I am talking about. It was mass chaos around here Christmas morning. Aunt Betsy came over around 6:30am and the Diva was downstairs shortly after that. The boys walked into the living room and stood in the middle of the floor for a minute and then ran towards their Santa gifts. The Diva had already torn through her stocking and was itching to open the gifts under the tree. It was killing her to wait for her brother's. We brought all the gifts into the living room. Diva immediately started tearing paper. She was so cute. She would tear part of the paper off of each gift and get really excited about it and move on to the next one without fully unwrapping anything. I helped the boys unwrap their gifts. Of course they were more enamored with the paper and boxes rather than what was in the boxes. It was a very exciting. After the excitement wore off and all the gifts were open we were left with a sea of paper and boxes in the living room.
Mike and I have a Christmas tradition. We start the morning off with Mimosa's. We then proceed to drink Mimosa's most of the day. We stuck to tradition this year :-)
We made Turkey and all the sides for lunch and ate ourselves into a stupor.
It was a good day.

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...

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 …
