April recap...behind again!

Hey y'all!

Here I am again, way behind!  I can't catch a break.  It seems when I try to focus on myself, which has been desperately needed, the other things suffer! I'm sure we can all relate.  I guess I haven't found a daily balance. My question to you is, how do you balance your daily routine and still give everything 100%.  It's hard!

Recently, I started doing Crossfit, and so far I have really enjoyed the challenge.  I say challenge, well because that is exactly what it is.  This exercise routine is no joke, but I really like it!  It's hard, yet rewarding at the same time!  And I've lost 10 pounds!  The best part is I've made awesome new friends who are so encouraging.  Someone asked me about my goal, and to be honest, I don't have one.  I guess I just wanted to be more healthy, lose some weight, and feel better about myself.  

I think when you have children, you tend to lose yourself.  I know I have in the past 4 years.  I wasn't exercising at all.  I was eating whatever was easy and available. My back was killing me, and I just had no time for myself.  I'm slowly making changes to better myself. 

In the past month, well, let's see....  Spring, Easter, Soccer, Spring Break, my cousin's wedding.  In no particular order. 

Pansies actually do great in the beginning of Spring. 

I love asparagus fern during the summer.  It stays green.  Does great in the heat, and it will completely fill this pot. 

How pretty are these eggs?  I have never seen this vibrant color on eggs before.  This nest was in my in-laws yard and it was very low in a shrub. 

During Mason's spirit week at school, Mason had crazy hair day which also means crazy face day! 

Mason also had an Easter egg hunt with his school friends.  We always go to one of the homes of a church member.  Beautiful place.  Mason had lots of fun finding eggs, but I think his favorite part is coming home and opening them.  

Mason and one of his best buds, Trey.  They are not far from each other when at school. 

We have really enjoyed watching Mason play soccer.  This was a beautiful Saturday morning.  

Mason seems to be having fun too!  He's not too keen on kicking the ball.  Most of the time, he just follows the ball around and giggles the entire time. 
It's kind of funny when your kids start playing sports.  Their whole life you are teaching them to share, but now we are shouting, kick the ball, get it, keep it away from the other team!!!  I can see where he is confused! 

During spring break, we spent a few days with Grammy.  Mason packed his essentials.  Pooh, Monkey, 2 blankets, monster trucks, and match box cars.  I mean really, what else does one need for an overnight trip?!

Mason is one lucky fella!  Every year he gets 3 Easter baskets.  One from Grammy and Paw Paw, one from the Easter bunny, and one from Nina and Papa.  Wow!! 

While at Grammy's house, we went shopping for Spring and Summer clothes, ate lunch and played in the mall, and played and played!

We spent Easter at Nina and Papa's and Jeff and DeAnna's this year.  I didn't get a lot of pictures because it was so nasty outside.  The kids played in the basement the majority of the time

And lastly, on the 27th, we went to my cousin's wedding.
This is my dad and me. 

The cake was so cute and so yummy!

I just loved all of the burlap, mason jars, and sunflowers!

Mason and hubby came to the reception later.  Mason just looks thrilled to be there.  Yet another reason why they came late!  HA!

Until next time!
