Weekend Highlights and Slowing Down

Happy Monday!

Ironic that last Monday I posted that I had all this amazing energy and here I am one week later with a fact… at nearly 32 weeks pregnant I am SLOWING down!

It hit me hard this weekend!  I’ve still got my energy in the morning! In fact last week I worked out 6/7 days!  So, that’s something to be proud of but running around during the fast paced holiday hustle and bustle is not so easy anymore!  Maybe it’s just temporary… who knows!  Nevertheless our weekend was marvelous in so many ways because I got to spend a whole lot of time with these two….



Sara had a friend sleepover Friday night and after the girls went to bed it was Hanukkah prep time for me….


This was round one of wrapping in preparation for Hanukkah which crept up on me and begins tomorrow night!  I’m also hosting our family Hanukkah party on Sunday.  I used to dread wrapping presents but since there is always a birthday present to be wrapped or other kind of occasion I have learned not to dislike it so much.

Saturday was spent running around while the Hubs took Sara to a play and they did their daddy daughter thing.  Beyond grateful for that since I needed major chill time on Saturday.  Another week done means that another season complete of The Walking Dead.  I clearly have a problem…. I’m on season 4 and I can’t get enough of this show!  It’s beyond addicting and each season gets better!

Saturday night the Hubs and I had a party at one of those paint places where “even those with no artistic ability can paint…” or so they say.  We had fun and laughed a ton!!  I wouldn’t say our masterpiece is worth putting anywhere for anyone to see but it was a really fun experience!


Our Sunday was filled with family time, a little food prep, workouts and to top it off a winter fest that ended with a sing-a-long with Elsa.  Seriously nothing cuter then watching a room full of Frozen crazed kids sing Let it Go with Elsa!


The look on their faces was beyond cute!!

I was glad that after running around all day that dinner was in my crockpot!


We all love this taco chili from Hungry Healthy Girl!!

It’s just too bad that my heartburn and acid reflux that haunted me for the first 25 weeks of pregnancy has returned big time for these last two month!  Boo

Anyways, I’ve got a few giveaways lined up this week since we are celebrating two years of blogging so make sure to stop back throughout the week!



Tell me what you did this weekend?

    Seriously you had such a fun weekend. I’m with you on feeling exhausted. I hit 33 weeks on Saturday and feel like I could sleep 24/7. I’m assuming my energy is gone & will not be coming back. Hah!

  3. I am finally ready for Hanukkah too! We had our family party a few days ago so most of the stressful prep is done. Since my kids are older and we are all going away this week, it is a little easier than it used to be. Happy Holidays!

  4. Looks like a great weekend! I’m so impressed that you’ve been able to keep up with all your activities and working out. When I was pregnant, I had no energy!

  5. We had a busy weekend with my parents in town, but I was also able to sneak some naps with extra hands to watch the toddler 🙂

    So impressed you’re still able to work out so much! Keep up the great work mama!

    I’m pretty sure my entire pregnancy was about slowing down so no worries if you feel that way now. Taco chili sounds really good about now. I may need to fire up the crock pot as I’m really sick of cooking right now.
