Sunday Funday + The Best Pinterest Recipe EVER!

Sundays are my most favorite day of the week! Usually Mike & I get to spend the day together & I absolutely love that! Today we started off our day with an intense workout. We both wanted to try a CrossFit workout from my uncle's website,(he owns his own CrossFit gym, which you can find here. Let me just warn you, this is a crazy workout, and is not for beginners! I don't think I've ever done anything so hard in my life. BUT I loved it!

The warm up consisted of front squats, 5 sets of four reps. I got up to 105lbs on my last two reps. Mike was doing much more.

The WOD (work out of the day) performed for time:
400 meter rum
21 thrusters (I used 45lb barbell; Mike used 95lb barbell)
21 pull ups *(I did assisted pull ups)
300 meter run
15 thrusters
15 pull ups
200 meter run
9 thrusters
9 pull ups

I completed this workout in 10:04!! Mike completed his in 11:28!!

When we came home we needed to refuel from our workout, so I made a healthy dish I found on Pinterest: Edamame Fried Rice. This is the best recipe I have made from Pinterest to date, and I will be making this again. Mike LOVED it & so did I!!
You can find the recipe here.

Now I am enjoying knowing that I don't have to go to school tomorrow!!!! Friday I have my last final & then I am officially FINISHED with college!!! WOO HOO!!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Spring Break: Days 3 & 4

Wednesday afternoon, Mike & I, along with our realtors/friends Nicki & Bobby, headed down to Lexington, KY to cheer on our high school boys basketball team in the state tournament! We had a lot of fun even though the boys did not win.

We ate at a delicious restaurant after the game, DeSha's, & enjoyed good food & great company!

Thursday morning I headed over to my younger sister, Pamela's house to watch my niece Isabella for the morning.

That afternoon we were expecting some nasty weather. Before it hit I wanted to snap a picture of my patio peach tree, since I was afraid the blooms were going to get blown off!

Toby loves storms and I was able to sneak up on him & snap a few adorable pics!

Later that evening Elyse hosted girls night at her house! I am very lucky that Elyse's friends let me come to their girls nights! It is always so much fun & the conversation & company is great! All the girls are so funny and sweet & getting to have a gab fest with a bunch of girls is always so refreshing!

The adorable babies!!

Spring break has been amazing so far & I don't want it to end!!

Spring Break: Day 2 A Fun Filled Day at the ZOO!

Day two of spring break started off early for me! I woke up at 7 am and went on a cleaning spree! I tackled the dishes, laundry and cleaned the bathrooms then headed to the grocery store to stock up for the week! Shew!! Then came the fun part of the day...

Today Elyse, Alexander, Pammy, Isabella and I all went to the zoo to enjoy this gorgeous day! Both of my sisters have zoo passes so I got to go for free!!! Today was the perfect day to go, since it was not too hot.

Bubby was ready to go!!

Beautiful Bellie

I have the cutest niece & nephew in the world!!

Bubby was saying "Hi pigs!"
.. but they were really wort hogs!

Then we headed to my FAVORITE!!!! GIRAFFES!!!!

Beautiful girls!!!

Next we saw the elephants

Bubby loved to wave "hi" to all of the animals!

We packed a picnic & enjoyed lunch, then continued to walk throughout the rest of the zoo!
We all enjoyed the adorable meerkats!

But the best part of the day was getting to see the momma grizzly bear & her cubs playing in the water! It was adorable!!

We also got to see the new polar bear cub, Snowflake!

By the end of the walk around the zoo every one was exhausted! Especially Bella!

I had a wonderful time & LOVED spending the day with some of the most important people in my life!!
