Hit the Ground Running

That’s how I started my day. From the moment I woke up, it was nonstop today. It all started off with my morning Bible reading. Followed up with showers, baths, getting ready, and breakfasts for the baby girl and I. We had to head out the door at around 9:30 this morning to go and meet up with the local Mom’s Group. I contacted a local group a couple of weeks ago and got some information and today was the first day to head and out and see what it was all about. We went to a cool little playcenter called Imaginations at Play. This place is really cool for kids. They have all sorts of different areas set up for the kids to explore. From a place to splash in water and play with bubbles to a mini grocery store to go ‘shopping’ there was all sorts of fun. Here are some pictures of Makenzie from this morning and all her adventures.

I really enjoyed meeting some other moms in the area and having new things to do with Makenzie. I believe we are going to go to an indoor playground and meet some more people from the group on Friday morning. I think Ihave already decided to join this group. Do you have any groups or outside activities where you meet regularly with others? What are they? Why did you join? I decided to look for a mom’s group to have more adult interaction and social outings with baby M during the weekdays. It is so important to have people in your life with similar interests and lifestyles. Which is one of the main reasons I have this blog 😉 Love you all! 🙂

After the playtime we headed home for some lunch. It took twice as long to get home due to an accident that shut down the main road to my house so I was a starvin’ marvin upon pulling in the driveway. Lunch was my usual – some sort of wrap with turkey or ham, veggies, and laughing cow cheese/mustard with an apple and 100 cal popcorn or more veggies on the side. I am a creature of habit and tend to eat the same things all the time. Not very exciting for all of you foodies, I know. But I am who I am, so take it or leave it.

After I refueled myself, I got to some laundry and housechores while the baby girl crashed from her extravaganza of play. I did have a moment to take some time to catch up on blogs too and read my next book (which I am LOVING). Finally, it was time to get my groove on workout. I opted for an at home Turbo Jam workout today. I always love those workouts because they always leave me feeling great and it passes quickly because they are so fun.

This reminds me – THANK YOU for all the supportive posts yesterday. This is something that I know I want to do and will do eventually, the question is when. I still plan to take some time to pray about it, but I will probably go ahead and talk to the group fitness manager at my gym just in general about what it takes to get certified and stuff. And I’ll just look at some things and see where the good Lord leads me 😉

Now I have to let you all go. My sister will be arriving shortly to enjoy some din din together and watch tonight’s episode of The Biggest Loser. Which reminds me – I am so peeved that I accidentally stumbled across a possible Bachelor spoiler last night. Gar! I hate not being surprised. 😦

    When I have kids, I will definitely be joining a mom group – it sounds like such a supportive thing and fun too! I didn’t get a chance to comment on your post yesterday, but I say go for it as well!

  3. That Imagination place looks like a BLAST! I think mom groups are really important, and I plan to join lots when I have kids. I too didn’t get to comment yesterday but you know I totally believe in you, whatever it is you want to take on! You can do anything Ms. Tina!

    I recently decided to get certified to teach group fitness too. I just got the materials in the mail the other day and have the workshop in 2 weeks.. eeck, lots to learn before then!
    Guilty pleasure shows have to be: The Bachelor (Jake is gorgeous!) and The Real Housewives of Orange County (and New York).

    I would definitely join the group- it is so important to have a life full of interaction. I belong to a wine group, couples group, a book club and a womans group. It is so nice to do stuff with the girls and then meet other couples to hang out with.

    great to hear you’ve been able to meet some new friends! sounds like a fun time 🙂

  8. Sounds a great fit for you! Makenzie is so adorable. I have a monthly bunco group I go to one Friday a month with some girls from work. Gives us a chance to let loose and hangout outside the work environment 🙂
