Spontaneous Egg Hunt!!

Saturday I received a text from my friend Jill saying, "want to have an easter egg hunt tonight?"  YES!  We desperately needed to get out of the house and spontaneous events are way more fun than planned one.  I ran to Target, bought eggs and jelly beans.  We headed over with our basket and eggs.  Jill, Kristen and I placed the eggs outside and the boys "hunted" them.  Isaac quickly realized that the eggs had candy in them.  He began cracking them open with his teeth, like someone would crack a nut.  It was so funny!  We all had fun and kept the boys up late while we, the parents, had a great time together.  Can't wait until our next spontaneous event.  Check out these cute pictures!!
Hunting eggs!

Oh there's candy!

Um, so I bought another deal...

So, I joke with my great friend Kristen but it's no joke.  I'm a total deal addict.  I get about 10 emails like groupon and check other sites too.  My closest friends know I have a running list in my head of things I want to buy.  If I see a deal for it, I must buy, right?
Today on Plum District, I saw a perfect deal for Isaac's 2nd birthday party.  Yes, I love planning parties and I start a year in advance.  I'm all about cupcakes and today was for toppers, edible ones!!  Being almost all 2 years old, I can't really say, "here's a cupcake but don't eat the topper". Check this website out!
I'm really liking these right now but I'll probably do custom ones.

Where have I been?

Right now I'm feeling like I have 1000 things to talk about but can't think of one now.  It's half way through April and mentally I'm already in May.  Busy, busy!!

We have had a wonderful week this week.  Dylan's family came to visit and IT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL!!  They have had a blast with Isaac and he loves spending his days at home with them.  It's been so nice to have a break from dropping off and picking up from day care.  Not to mention, bathing him, feeding him, and washing/folding his clothes.  We'll all be sad when the week is over.

I'm not going to lie, this is going to suck

It's been several weeks since I've written.  We've been busy and not busy.  The biggest change is we joined 24 Hour Fitness.  It opened last Saturday and it's gorgeous.  I realize it's just a gym but it's a Super Sport gym which means it has the indoor pool and outdoor pool.  I am so happy it's here.  It's very close to our house and now with my job I am able to go.  I love the classes and I'm awfully sore today.  Kickboxing is my #1 work out choice.  I tried Zumba but the teacher wasn't very good.  I was just expecting more and it was slow and almost like Jazzercise.  I need fast and intense to help the 60 min fly by.  I've been lifting weights again which I love too.  I miss the days where I would lift 2-3 days a week. (in high school)  The title of my blog is a quote from my kickboxing instructor.  She didn't lie but it was just what I needed.  I'm looking forward to next Thursday.
