Happy early Fourth of July everybody! Anybody have any big plans for celebrating our nation’s birthday? Preston and I will be spending the holiday with friends, first with dinner followed by us all going to see the fireworks together. Its going to be a semi-low key evening, just what I’m in the mood for.
I’ve been enjoying my first full week of summer vacation. I’ve taken full advantage of my extra time this past week, getting lots done both at home and on the fitness front.
2. I’ve spent quite a bit of time this week working on our baby registries. Its amazing how much stuff kids need, and how many choices are out there! Its all a bit overwhelming, which makes me very thankful that I’m getting an early start.
3. Preston and I made our first big baby item purchase this week! The pack ‘n’ play that we want was on super sale at Babies ‘r’ Us, so I headed there Tuesday afternoon to make the purchase.
4. Tomorrow I’ll be running my ninth race of the year, the Firecracker 5k. This will be the third year that Preston and I have run this race. Its a fun way to kick off the 4th of July festivities.
5. On Monday I head back to work part time for two weeks. I’ll be working on a curriculum development project for 20 hours each week. Its a nice balance of time off and earning a little extra money.
QOTD: What are your 4th of July plans?
