Easter 2012

Easter 2012 has come and gone. I will count it as another success.
When Diva was a baby I had some friends and their kids over to decorate Easter Eggs. I have done it every year since. This year I was brave and let Owen and Carter and their little friends decorate eggs as well. The weather was fantastic the day we did our decorating so I set up tables outside and let the kids loose out there.

We stripped the babies down to their skivvies and let them at it. I saw an idea on Pinterest that said to put the egg in a whisk and dip it in the dye. It didn't work.
The bigger kids had their own table and their own madness. They were all very particular about how they wanted their eggs to look.
After decorating the dads hid some plastic eggs and we let the kids hunt. The concept was a little lost on the babies.
Easter was actually a week after we did our egg decorating. I invited Nana Karen, Papa Brad, Nana Sue, Papa Jim and Aunt Bets over for lunch. Diva was wired for sound. She was so excited she could hardly stand herself. The Easter Bunny left a Justin Bieber CD in her basket. Very. Big. Deal.

The Dudes each got some Woody dolls from Toy Story in their baskets. It was love at first sight for Carter. Almost a week later he is still enamored with Woody. Which of course, Mr. Mayer and I being the normal 12 year olds er, um, grown ups we are there have been endless jokes about "Woody."

I was majorly in love with the Dudes and their bow ties. They were perfect. I ordered them from here. She's creative like I wish I could be. I follow her blog (Mama and the Dudes) and adore her and her adorable Dudes.
The weather was a little icky, but we still had a great day~and ate too much pie.

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…
