Mommyland Happenings {Volume 31}

10 Aug

The boys enjoyed their last week of camp for this summer and I enjoyed a quiet house during the week to get things done.



I came home from work on Sunday to this! My little room almost complete. Of course I wasted no time getting down there for a good workout.

It’s really exciting to have a healthy space and this will make it much easier to make working out a priority.



I feel like this has been the summer of storms. It’s been super humid which sparks these fun pop out thunderstorms. I saw this one coming and thought, “here we go again!”



The mats finally came in for my home gym and Logan was kind enough to test them out with some knuckle push-ups.

I love that the boys enjoy being active. They don’t know it yet but it’s really going to help them stay active as they get older having such a strong foundation. I’m kind of envious because fitness is work for me.



Logan sat on the couch next to me Wednesday morning, snuggled up and asked to take a selfie. I will never say no to that! My sweet cuddly guy.



I am LOVING my new home gym! I get down there everyday to do something since something is better than nothing. Thursday I did a 25 minute speed workout on the elliptical and a quick HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout.

How cool is the workout record my Apple Watch creates? It even shows the weather!



I haven’t shared much of Cooper lately so we’ll end the week with some of him.

Logan forgot his lunch for camp so I took Cooper for a car ride when I dropped it off. He really does love to be in the car.



In my next life I want to come back as a dog like Cooper. A nice comfy couch to sleep on all day and a family who loves him.

That’s my week in a nutshell. I hope you are having a great week so far and that it only gets better.


Mommyland Happenings {Volume 30}

8 Aug

I’ve been having a real hard time sitting at my desk for any extended period of time and that’s the reason why this is so late getting out. I guess a week late is better than never.

Aren’t you lucky, you’ll get to see two weeks here over the next few days!

Enjoy what it looked like here two weeks ago.



I come home from work Sunday afternoon and this is what I come home to.

Cameron said it was a small bug bite Saturday night and that’s how he woke up Sunday morning. It didn’t hurt, it was just a little itchy but man, it changed the entire contour of his body.

After a few days of Benadryl and cream, it was completely gone…Thank God!



I’ve been thinking a lot lately about when I was in my best shape. Then I thought about all the equipment we had laying around the house unused.

I had an aha moment Monday when I decided that I’d like to turn this part of our unfinished basement into a home gym. This small room has been a dumping ground for all kinds of stuff for the past six years.

Things got serious when I created a Pinterest board with ideas to turn this space into somewhere I would want to spend time getting back in shape.



Bill was away Monday night and Logan had been asking for a sleepover in mom’s bed for ages. So Monday night it was me, Logan, and Cooper in my kingsized bed.

Logan must have slept really well, this was him way after he is usually awake. He snores, but at least he stays on his side of the bed.


There was no Wednesday here in Mommyland. I have no photos from the day and when I asked Bill if he had any, he did not. The only reasonable explanation for that is that the day didn’t happen.


Cameron is my little tech guy. This was his third year doing Apple Camp and his favorite yet because it was all coding.

At Apple Camp, Cameron was able to write code to control a robot and unlike the other kids in his group, we have the robot at home so he was able to create a detailed code and share it with the rest of the group.

Even the Apple employees were impressed with his skill.



Friday was a big day here, it was Bill’s 40th birthday!

It was also Nerf War parent’s night out at the karate school, which meant a nice evening out together, without the boys, to celebrate. We visited one of our favorite local restaurants, Lily. It’s a sushi joint but thankfully they have great options for someone like me who doesn’t eat anything that once swam.

Check out Bill’s dinner! I might not like seafood but I can appreciate how beautiful that dinner is.



My home gym dreams became a reality on Saturday. Bill and I spent most of the day cleaning out the room. When everything was out, Bill painted the floor with garage paint which was super easy to use.

Stay tuned for a post about how we turned this nasty room into a fantastic home gym.

See you later this week with more from Mommyland, until then have a great day!
