    Five on Friday on Monday

    I started this post last week, but I stopped at number five and forgot about it. What’s that saying, “Better late than never?” Here’s my Five on Friday, Monday-style.

    1. Celebrating our first anniversary.
    We celebrated our first anniversary this past Sunday. It was great! We’ve really been blessed.

    2. Going on a run with my Kaden.
    Last night (Thursday), Kaden and I went on a run together with him in the stroller for the first time in a few months. Let’s just say my load was heavier or I’ve gotten weaker, and I don’t think I’ll be using the jogging stroller much until there’s a tiny one in it!

    3. Staying home with K.C.
    Our sweet big boy is sick and while I don’t like that one bit and would rather be sick myself, I was able to spend much of the day at home with him today (Friday). We had some great K.C. Annabelle time. We played, we painted and we finished our new Magic Treehouse book.

    4. Soccer season is over and my first gym class ever.
    The boys finished their Fall 2013 soccer season on Saturday. This season, they were the Tornadoes. This was K.C.’s 4th season and Kaden’s third. We had a blast! Next season, the boys will play on separate teams due to their ages.

    After soccer on Saturday, I went to the gym. My friend and I went running which was a treat, and then we went to a class together. It was my first class ever. I’ve been going to my gym since I was 15 or 16, so for 11 or 12 years, I’ve gone to the gym without ever stepping foot into a group class.

    The class was Body Sculpt and I about died. It’s Monday and I’m still sore. It was about 45 minutes of lunges and squats holding weights. I thought I was in shape. I do weights three days a week normally, but they’re using machines. This free weight thing is no joke. I went for a run this morning and I was wincing in pain the first half mile. I’m running a 10K race this weekend, so I think I need to go back to this class before then to work the soreness out. I want to see how I look after 6 weeks of the torture class!

    5. Sunday fun.
    We had a nice day yesterday. Last night, the boys wanted to plant the 50 pounds of bulbs we purchased a few weeks ago. 50 pounds may be an exaggeration, but we did have 80 tulip and daffodil bulbs. I hope they grow this spring!

    Our First Anniversary!

    Happy first anniversary to my better half, best friend and love of my life! This past year has been filled with so much love, laughter and fun. Thank you for always loving me, supporting me and putting us first. God blessed my life tremendously when He brought us together and I’m so thankful to Him for you every day. You are everything I ever dreamed of in a husband and more. I don’t think I will ever be able to describe how much I love you. I’m looking forward to a hundred more happy anniversaries!

    I love you!
