Follow along, Get Fit, & a few crafts

Hey! I'm taking part in a "Follow Along" today over at Making the World Cuter. Join in, share your blog link, and find some fantastic new blogs to follow!

Man... I have been busy!

Today was my VERY FIRST day back to the gym post baby #2! They won't take babies under 6 months old at the daycare (I cheated by 2 days, shhh)... MAN did it feel great!

I have motivation for working out... over at Nap Time Crafters they are having a Get Fit Challenge from March 21 - May 1. The person who logs the most hours gets a bathing suit! Go check them out!

Back after baby numero uno my brother made me a work-out routine which I used quite a bit after Charlotte and while I was pregnant with Jillie. It's a circuit workout regimen... and I really really like it. Apparently the point is (and I could be wrong) to keep your heart rate high the entire workout versus resting for long periods of time between weights/cardio/etc. Today was back and bi's (although... I think I was supposed to do back and chest, I need to track down that email from my brother).The gist of my work out was cardio - back - bis - abs (repeat). Doing this 3 times, each a different exercise for that muscle group. Then I ended with a 5 min walk at 4.0 mph at a 7.0 incline. It took me about an hour. 

One of the reasons that I am working out is so I look great in my girlfriends wedding in (info removed)! Speaking of her wedding... I am in the process of making favors tags for her shower (info removed). She is going to have 80 at her bridal shower. 80 women! I don't think I know 80 people that would come to a shower for me... sheesh! I have got some printing and punching to do.

3 down... 77 more to go. I guess we know what I'm doing tonight while watching tv.

Cupcake Onesies
On the subject of showers, look at this adorable cupcakes onesies that I did for my girlfriends baby shower the other day. For my girl cupcakes onesies, it was easy to decorate... add little bows on top. I was a little stumped on how to decorate the boys, but one look at the baby aisle at Walmart and I got my inspiration. I used 2 wrist rattles and 2 squeaky squeeze toys.

Let's see... what else... what else? Oh yeah... last night (since I had a few minutes free) I decided to make Jillie some homemade babyfood peas. Not that it was hard OR time consuming... but I got it done.
Appetizing huh?
She wasn't quite a fan... but she'll get there.

Lastly, today is the LAST DAY to get Picaboo's $10 off and free shipping sale. I completed my 2nd book (of this batch) last night. I'm going to look them over one last time and then get them ordered this afternoon.

I'll post a few screen shots tomorrow to show you just why I like picaboo.

Well... that's all for now. The little one is crying.
