MishMash II

Friday, June 17, 2011

Seriously, since when have I done two mishmash posts in the same week? I think it's kind of ridiculous, but anywhoo.

- I made another ExpectNet baby pool. Personally, I hate participating, because I don't like the pressure, but I love having people guess for my own little one. See link to the left.

- Last night I was able to shaky shaky with Gina, as she led her first Zumba class! I told her I was going to be doing extreme toe taps and wasn't sure what my modifications would look like. I'm pretty sure I had her laughing at me periodically throughout the class, but I had a blast moving my body a bit and my swelling went down in my legs/cankles/toes as a result!

[Of course I'm wearing blue and am occupying the back!]

I stepped out for the last 25 minutes or so of the class and just sat with Gina's husband Matt, watching Gina. There's something about seeing someone so fulfilled by the activity they're involved in. I'm just so proud of her for going after the things that she knew would make her happy!

- After my minor freakout yesterday, I got settled in and actually completed Isaac's first year book . . . until I remembered yet more pictures that I didn't include today! I'm handling it much better today though and am just glad I didn't reactively complete the order yesterday.

- I think my part time work from home schedule for the last month of my leave is going to be approved, praise the Lord! Nothing like leaving it to the last minute, but it's so nice to think about money coming in and only working twice a week. Plus it will give my Mom the opportunity for a trial run and get me pumping on a schedule. I'd much rather be walking away from corporate America completely, but at least this time I get a longer leave and have a great schedule figured out to help us financially!

- My friend Meredith at La Buena Vida is hosting her own giveaway to create a family manifesto, which she recently completed for their family. This is something I've seen done periodically and have always meant to get on, so I love that she's offering this and using her creative talents!

Very interesting Mish Mash though!

* I've always wanted to try ZUMBA (while in the states that is), Never done it :( (once again in my life fear of failing). But I'm happy to see you and your Friend tried, it looks like such a fun work out.

* I'm so curious to see how Isaac's book turns out! hope you share it with us sometime!

* As for the steping out of Corporate America, I hear you Girl!
I've done it for 7 years and was so done with it when I resigned. Still working long hours, but it's a smaller more laid back family Co. so...can't complain. Preayers sent your way!

* Also LOVED Mere's give away, it's my first time participating on one aswell, since I'm overseas I thoght this would be a good first try.

and now last but no least I have a Question for yah!... We are dying to see a sneak peek of Baby Love's nursery :D Will it be possible?

I love your pg belly in the back of the class-you go girl! And yay for a longer mat leave, easing you back into work after baby love. You can do it! And I knew you'd do the album, no problem. It doesn't have to be perfect, you know. :)
