Weekend Highlights {12/23}

Hiiii friends!

How are you all?!

We had a great weekend to start our little vacay in StL with my family :)


Weekend Highlights {12/23}

I didn’t take a ton of pictures, but here are some with a few highlights.

Held baby Lily, and watched her be held with a bunch of my different siblings & family members. :)

Practiced CXWORX and worked out on the elliptical.

Fed baby Lily a lot. haha.

Ate food–but didn’t take like any pictures…..

Oh except one.

Yep, that pretty much sums up what I love about being home. Haha.

I’ve also eaten some delicious homemade veggie soup, homemade pizza, a bunch of spinach salads, and a whole crate of clementines.

I took a BodyPUMP class at the gym I used to teach at! It was SO SO fun to be a participant and to see people whom I adore.

I wish I had taken some photos….but let it be known that that was definitely a highlight of my weekend!

We also did a loooooong trip to Target to finish up some last-minute Christmas shopping. That felt good to be close to done! But man was it a madhouse.

Sunday we got ready for church

Funny story about these pics in front of the tree….

I wanted these pictures SO badly, but we were in a crazy hurry to get to church. So that is why we all look a bit stressed in these.

And THEN. While I was holding her, she had a major blowout.

Of course! hah.

It is a newborn truth that you put her in her special outfit and then something explodes. Always.

Oh well. I cleaned her up in a crazy fast hurry, and we made it mostlyyyyy on time to church. 😉

We went to church and it was so lovely.

I love being at church with my family! This is only some of us (there are 10 kids), so for fun, can you tell which ones in this pic are my siblings (there are 4 of us)? My mom is in it too. 😉

Lily and I only lasted an hour and a half at church, and because I felt like crap, we both took epic naps.

I hate flu like symptoms.

But dang, Lily makes everything better!

Alright, I hope I feel better soon, and I wish you all a happy DAY! <3
