I like to celebrate birthdays and plan the themes. I start planning it out about 2 months in advance... but the theme maybe 3-4 months before the birthday. Happy Birthday week to my little guy who turns 2 on Sunday! I can't believe it. For this week, I have a list of things to finish up for our train party on Saturday. It pretty much stinks that I'm feeling like junk.. but hopefully taking some rest and immunity drinks w/ Vitamin D, Zinc and Vitamin C + smoothies will help me recover quickly! This past weekend we celebrated Nick's birthday with family. Nick had a BLAST! Here is a mini "train car" that I made for him to blow out and Nick in his "2" shirt. I love it!
For next weekend's party, I made Angela's pb graham crackers. They turned out great! They will be a party favor in the kid's favor bucket.
Probably as a result of eating soup and crackers and fruits and veggies for the past couple of days, I've lost a couple of lbs and am officially back to lightweight status! Lightweight for college rowing... haha. It's been 3 years!!!!! since I've seen below 130 on the scale. Hopefully I can keep that around.
I'm taking getting sick as a sign that I need to rest. I'm not going to try to swim and run through it - I think that will just prolong getting better. It's kind of amazing how stress-less a day is when you have zero goals and sleep in. But geez - I just love the feeling that I get after a good workout! I couldn't do this if I didn't feel totally run down. I almost just gave nick this "cake" for lunch because I didn't care...but then he agreed to eat his soup. Since this is the second time in just 2 months that this has happened, I know that I need to change my habits. I guess my plan is to sleep more when I'm better and get to bed earlier and try not to stress about dumb things. Thank you to all the mamas & non-moms for encouragement and the "you're not alone" support! :) I really appreciate it.
