Five on Friday!

OK I have been terrible about blogging so I thought I would try 5 on Friday to give you a brief update on what we've been up to!  I'm linking up on Darci's blog today and her 5 on Friday series. 

1.  Brock's first varsity baseball season ended yesterday with a loss in the sectional championship game.  Brock started and pitched for four innings in yesterday's game.  Last year this team won the state championship and all but one of their starters graduated.  This year Brock joined 5 other sophomores on the team so this has been a rebuilding year.   I am thrilled that they got as far as they did and  I am excited about what the next couple of years will bring for this team.  Tonight Brock has his first practice with his summer baseball team and tomorrow is their first game so we still have a lot of baseball in our future!

Every month I track how much I work out and then I highlight the days so I can keep track of my workouts. 
Pink=day off from working out
green=running day
yellow=cardio day or yoga

As you can see there is A LOT of pink on this month's calendar.  I have been majorly slacking on my workouts.  I need to get it together! 

Speaking of calendars I am SO excited because I am going to order my first Erin Condren calendar on Tuesday!  Everyone raves about these daily planners and I can't wait to get mine!

I have been wanting this urban decay eyeshadow for a few months and after watching countless tutorials on line I decided to break down and buy it for myself!  It has been fun trying new eyeshadow looks and confession most mornings I just use my old eyeshadow because I still haven't mastered using this yet.

And last but not least I am SO happy it's Friday!!  I have a fun weekend planned-dinner out with friends,  Brock's baseball game, garage sales with friends, and Ava's girls on the run 5k. 

Happy weekend!!

Catch up!

Things have been busy, busy at our house and I know I've been a terrible blogger.  Now that the students are gone and my summer schedule had started I should have more time to blog :-).

Here are some pictures from my phone for the last few months.  

Brock and I took a trip to NYC to watch Mary Poppins in Broadway! Here we are in Toys r Us in Times Square.  He always loved that dinosaur when he was little.  This time he wasn't too thrilled-ha!  But at least he let me take his picture!
We celebrated Ava's 11th bday with lunch at Brooks with friends.
I love this picture of Ava and Eliza from Ava's bday lunch :-)

I had a craft night with my friends and we made peep wreaths for Easter!

We put a basketball court up in our yard and Brock and Ava have been loving it!

I painted the shelves in our office white.  Love how they tuned out!  I'm not crazy about the giant black frame I'm looking for another one to replace it!

Ava had her last ballet recital.  She has decided to do sports next year and not dance
 :-(. She's SO happy so I'm trying to be supportive.

My Dad went to Disney and brought B and A these cute shirts.

Little League in our town dedicated its season to Graig.  We went to the ceremony on little league opening day and Graig threw out the first pitch!

Our nephew Gabe and his Mom and Dad  visited from Colorado.
During their visit grandma Jan took her three daughter in laws out to dinner.

Graig and I went to a fundraising dinner for the YMCA.

                                        I'm in a running group and we did a run to support Boston.  

My friend Melany and I just got back from Portland, OR!  We went to a fabric and quilting convention.  It was SO fun and there were so many beautiful fabrics.  I will post pics from our adventure tomorrow!
