It's Weekend Time


Friday, February 12, 2016

It's Friday and we are looking at a three day weekend. I am so excited. The weather should be in the low 60s here, so we are going to take advantage of being outside most of the weekend.

I am linking up with Karli and April as always.

One. Since I am not getting my boobs done until October (read here), I need to find a new bikini. Or at least a new bikini top. And I was blog reading this week and Darcy from A Memory of Us posted this beauty.

I am also looking at this one from VS.

And if I could splurge, I would get this one that Madison recommended.

Two. Here is to hoping that we CAN get the girls passports today. We have tried three times now, so hopefully this is lucky #4. We have an appointment, we have the girls photos and the applications filled out. Now to get them done. Please oh please let us get them sent off. We are leaving for Mexico in 8 weeks. Not much time people.

Three. My umbilical hernia surgery is all set. I will be having surgery on Friday February 26th, my parents anniversary. And my sweet parents have volunteered to take me to my surgery so Rory can go to work and the girls to daycare. That way once I am out, I can relax at home and get the rest I will need. I have my pre-op on Wednesday February 24th to go over everything, have lab work done and get my prescriptions. My belly button should be looking amazing by the time we head to Mexico.

Four. My Simply Fit Board arrived Wednesday night. I bought it after seeing it on Lindsay's blog. I wanted something to use at home (other than the stretching and push ups I do at home), and something that I could bust out in 10 minutes. So after my husband headed to the Nevada basketball game, I opened it and got started. I really liked it and can't wait to use it (hopefully) every evening.

Five. This week we bought the girls a toy bin organizer. We were going to build them one since it seemed cheaper than the $55 plus I was seeing online, but then we happened to go into Home Depot and found them on clearance. For $19.00. Yes you read that right. Total score. Amazon has them for $54.99 (originally $120.00). We only bought one until we can see if we have room for more. And they get really good reviews. 

Hope you have a good weekend!

    1. I am going to go bathing suit shopping this weekend. Hoping for the best. And if the bikinis don't look good, the search will continue. I just hope I can still rock a bikini with my mom bod, haha. So glad to hear good reviews on the organizers. We will be setting them up this weekend.

    1. I love the hot pink color of the VS one as well. I am shopping this weekend and hoping to find one that fits and looks right. Let me know what you think of the simply fit board.

  4. You found it at Home Depot? Like in the store or online? Cause we are getting this same one this weekend but I am all for Home Depot... And love all the tops. I can't do strapless just because I constantly pull on them and well I have no boobs to hold them up. I'm jealous of your mexico trip. J and I have still not had a honeymoon 14 months later.

    1. I found it in the store. I also checked another Home Depot here and they had it as well, so might be worth checking. That might be my problem now that I have small boobs. I might not be able to pull off the strapless. We shall see when I go shopping. You need to go on a honeymoon. Even a minimoon. I hope you can plan one out soon.

  6. What a steal!! We found one of those organizers at a consignment store for around $30, and I still regret not buying it! I will have to check out HD! I have not seen the Simply FIt Board, but I am checking it out. It looks great!

    1. Please do check out Home Depot. Crazy the things we find there. It was in the front of the store and there were about three of them sitting together. Worth a shot. Go watch the Simply Fit videos. I was sold and I love mine so far (two days in).

  7. I love that first bathing suit! I'm already on the hunt for a new one as well, and I need all the push-up I can get! Haha.

    So far I'm still loving my board... My core does already feel a little bit tighter! Let me know how you like yours.

    1. Haha, me too! Push these small girls up please!!!

      I am so far liking mine (2 days in) but even my husband likes it. We are set on doing it nightly. Though I have to take a two week break after surgery, but then back on the fit board train.

    1. The suit looked pretty good in person and on, but they didn't have my size. So I need to order the bottoms online. Hope you had a good weekend.

  14. Where did you purchase the Simply Fit Board? It looks like it might be fun to do on days I don't do Insanity, Kickboxing or Zumba at the gym.

    1. I bought it on their website. http://simplyfitboard.com/ It has been awesome so far. I have done it everyday minus Friday and it works the body out pretty hard. Plus they have little extra exercises to go with it. Rory even loves it.
