Twins 2nd Birthday.

This morning when my alarm went off, I slowly rolled out of bed after staying up WAY to late watching pretty little liars. Thanks to my sister, I will fully admit, I’m addicted. I kind of love getting into teenage drama… Any body else into this show? I feel as if this is important information to share today, because I have spent the majority of my time trying to figure out who “A” is.

I did make it to the gym eventually to coach and complete this workout. After coaching the first two classes and watching everyone sweat their faces off, I was kind of excited to get the workout over with. If I see everyone pushing their limits, it inspires me to push mine. I love this gym. Seriously.


This workout would be a great workout to do AT HOME, or even on vacation. No equipment,  Just grab a deck of cards and get to work!

  • Hearts = Push ups
  • Diamonds= Sit-ups
  • Clubs = Squats
  • Spades = Burpees
  • Complete reps as card indicates
  • Face cards = 10 reps
  • Aces = 15 reps
  • Jokers= 400 m Run

It’s a guaranteed sweat fest.

After I ran a quick errand to Target to pick up all the birthday goods. 


I love Target.  Who doesn’t? Oh, yeah, my bank account.

My Babies had their Birthday Party today. They don’t actually turn two until Saturday but we got together with family and friends to celebrate.


We got together at their favorite splash pad and park that is close to their home. We scheduled it to be later in the day, but it was the hottest day of the year. By 6:30pm it was 103 degrees outside and I’m pretty sure we were all melting but the kids had a great time splashing around stuffing their faces full of frosting.

Here are a few pictures from the night.



Family picture fail.





I have the greatest friends and family in the world. I truly am thankful for such great people in my life that take time to spoil my kids like their own. I love them ALL!

I still can’t believe they are going to be TWO!
