Family vacation

We recently took a family vaca to San Antonio and went to the zoo, the Alamo, went on a tour of the Riverwalk, & drove to see bro-& sis- in law near the beach. I feel like I could sing that song "I've been everywhere man" now! Here's some pics rom the vacation

July 5th - on the floor

This is our cat Evan on the floor in front of the fridge. It was a HOT day in TX!!

July 6th - Chair

My sis-in-law joined us out by the pool last night and she caught a pic of of me in my chair laughing at something she said. 

July 7th - Garden

Although I would love to have a garden, I don't have the time. However we do have friends that are generous with their garden goodies. So far we've got pickles, onions, and squash. YUMMY!

3 in 30 Linkup

I found a blog that shares our goal progress every Friday. I thought I would join and it would be a way to chart my progress.

1. Work out 4 times a week - I need to at least get my body moving 4 times a week to get my body back healthy. I also want to incorporate mini workouts during my day like squats while brushing my teeth or lifting the full laundry basket as weights.

2. Wake up early (or earlier) while on vacation - yes I am all about sleeping in while on vacation but the last few days I've slept till 9:30 and it just throws my day all off. I'd like to get up at 6:30 to get in a workout while on vacation before hubby goes off to work and 7:30 on days that I don't workout.

3. Read two non-school books this month - I'm going for my masters degree an often feel guilty if I'm not reading something that have to do with my class. However, I've always loved to read. I just got this book from our local library. I think it's more of a young adults book but it looked really interesting.

Wish me luck!!

Top Tuesday

My Top Things for this Tuesday

10. My honey is off tomorrow so before I go to work, we are going to have lunch to celebrate my grandmother's 81st bday and maybe a swim at the pool

9. Landon spent the night with some friends last night and is back at the house tonight, and let me say it was WAY TOO quiet with him gone.

8. I got in a work out this morning and hope to get back in my exercise groove..I just have to keep telling myself consistency.

7. My first full week of vacation and boy does it feel good. Did I mention I like the whole sleeping late option :)

6. I am almost finished with my comprehensive exam for my masters class. I passed all but one section and now for the next round I have to submit that one section again. If I pass it, I'm pretty much finished, all I have to do is keep my GPA up and I'll graduate with my masters. (Prayers, please!!)

5. My honey fixed my dryer so now I can dry clothes at the spur of the moment. Although I am going to still hang some out on the line.

4. Picnics in the floor with a tiny tea set and my Princess E

3. Did I mention I'm on VACATION!?!?

2. I'm thankful for air conditioning on these hot Texas days

1. Hanging out by the pool with a friend who I don't get to talk to that often for three hours today talking and laughing while I'm on vacation. :)

Pic a day #3

Favorite part of the day. Whether we sit at the table or run late and eat on the go, I love the evenings with my kiddos & hubby
