{Oh life!!}

Howdy everyone!!! Goodness, I have neglected this space something fierce lately. There is just so much going on lately. I know I said that on my last post...but FOR REAL! Just not enough time in each day!

What have we been up to?

For the last couple of months I have been busy planning an engagement party {along with 5 other bridesmaids} for my best friend since 2nd grade! It feels so good to finally be able to talk about her getting married. It was a secret for so long. But, my best friend is getting married!!! And I am her Matron of Honor!! I feel so blessed and so honored. Eeek. 

Anyhow, we had their engagement party last Saturday and it was a huge success!! Everything was so beautiful and perfect and I think Kristy has a very talented wedding party! The party was held at T&P Tavern in Fort Worth. Her cousins own it and it was the perfect venue to hold the party!! We had cupcakes and a popcorn bar and T&P catered all kinds of appetizers. It was amazing!!!

And while we were at the party Nate's mom let us know that Mason wasn't feeling too well. He was running a low grade fever, had a small cough and just wanted to lay around. He actually even took a nap - over 2 hours. He never naps! So, Nate and I worried about him the whole time we were there. And then it felt like the longest drive ever to get home. We picked him up and brought him home. He took some medicine and within 30 minutes he perked up and was happy and talkative. We watched the Lego movie in our bed and cuddled. He went to sleep after the movie. He didn't run fever throughout the night and woke up Sunday feeling better. We took it easy, though! And I kept him home Monday just to be sure. We really think it was just terrible allergies. He's back at school today and I am hoping he's doing fine!

So glad he's back to himself! I just hate when he doesn't feel well. Breaks my heart into a million pieces.

We've also been spending a lot of time at the gym. They have a childcare area, but we try to not take Mason every day. Nathan and I alternate with gym time and our classes too! So far I have done Pilates Fusion and Zumba. Pilates Fusion was my absolute favorite class. I can't wait to do it again tonight!! So far I am down 12-14 lbs and lots of inches. I've been dieting pretty hard core for 3 weeks, so I was kind of disappointed with the amount I've lost...but Hubby reminded me that I'm turning fat into muscle and that's why the scale isn't dropping much. Bahh...I mean it's good, but I also want to lose more.

Other than that...oh you know....just planning a SECRET TRIP!!! More on that to come....

What have you been up to lately?
