Girl's Trip


I have mentioned before that I graduated with a small group. The majority of us had been friends since we were 4 years old. We graduated just yesterday 15 years ago. We have all stayed in touch. We don't get to see each other often, but thanks to social media we have stayed in touch with each other. This weekend 13 of us girls had a reunion in OKC. We had a great time. We all met at our hotel Saturday afternoon. Then we went to dinner at the Melting Pot in Bricktown. Afterwards a Limo picked us up and we enjoyed all the St. Patrick's Day celebrations Bricktown had to offer. There were leprechauns, drinks with dry ice and greasy fast food. After the bars and downtown shenanigans we went took our limo back to the hotel. We stayed up wwwwaaaayyyy past my bedtime catching up on the last 15 years. We had a great time. I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. The best thing about this group of girls is that even though we don't see each other often and life has happened in the in between times we all picked up right where we left off. That's my idea of a true and lasting friendship. I'm pretty sure that we will be 100 and still goofing off with each other. We had such a good time we are already planning our next get together a little farther south. I can't wait until the next time.
Mr. Mayer handled his weekend like a champ. He even took all the kids-by himself-out for pizza Saturday night. Pretty impressive. When I got home all my people were happy to see me. I always feel like a rockstar when I come home. There is clapping, cheering and lots of hugs.

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 …

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house.
"I cleaned my room damn good."
Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious.
A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies.
We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her.
Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally to b…

Taking Back Summer

I am a professional at over scheduling and doing too much. I have really been working on this and trying to simplify my life a little. I have been focusing on meaningful relationships and moments, and taking more of a quality over quantity approach to life lately. It has been hard, but has been so worth it. Summer has been a perfect test to my efforts. Last summer I worked and when I wasn't working I had a "fun activity" scheduled. We were so scheduled and busy that we lost the "fun" part somewhere along the way. Mr. Mayer and I took a long weekend together last summer and I was so tired from our "easy summer" that I just wanted to sleep the whole time. That's not fun.

This summer we have played with our neighbors and cousins, swam and slept in. The kids get to pick two camps they can do. The boys had one in June and another one in July. #1 didn't want to do any camps other than her cheer camps she has to do, and I am not making her. We have h…
