Where there's a will, there's a way.

Friday, my little Bean graduated from kindergarten. I can't believe my baby is going to be in first grade. I'm going to miss my little sidekick in the afternoons next year!

Friday night I experienced Art City Donuts for the first time. Yes, the Boston Cream Donuts ARE as good as they look. And sound. Now I have to try all the other flavors to compare, of course.

In addition to pool running five days last week, I got in three core workouts. The best was doing 8-minute abs and some planks on the lawn out in front of the rec center on Saturday morning. I met Janae there at 5:50 am so we could start our 2-hours of pool running only to find out the rec opens at 7 am on Saturday. Lame. But instead of hitting up IHOP or going back to bed (which were both seriously considered), we made the most of our time and worked on our cores. And because I could talk to Janae forever, those three hours flew by!!

I also got in two strength sessions last week. One of those included this gem. By gem, I'm not referring to the fact that she isn't using any weights for her upper body workout. I'm all about adjusting your workout to your fitness level. I'm talking about her leotard over those shorts. How did that EVER go out of style?

And because I can't let that be the last image in your head, here's the picture Bean drew to illustrate the saying, "Where there's a will, there's a way." Her caption says, "I like to practice riding horses."

And here's a pic of my girls doing their favorite thing. This swing set was one of the best investments we have ever made!

What's your favorite food truck treat?

Are you doing anything exciting this week?

  1. Those donuts are little pieces of heaven. I definitely think you need to try more flavors. I may have tried a few myself :) I wasn't planning on liking their blueberry crumble, and it is probably one of my favorites.

    I probably would have went and got breakfast and then came back to pool run. Best of both worlds!

    The only thing better than that picture of the girl working out, would have been if it was a shot from behind. All my dance teachers had those thong leotards. That is just something I will never understand.
