Spring Break 2017

Spring Break was full of fun and getting stuff done. Since my son Jack and my nephew Bennett were also out of school they hung with me this week. On Monday my dad cooked out while Jack and I went to his first t-ball practice. It was so sweet. At one point Jack just sat in the grass and started pulling it up. He is number 01 on his team of 10 kiddos. I already can't wait for the next practice. 

On Tuesday the boys and I stayed outside from 9 am until 6 pm. My dad had purchased a huge pile of sand so the boys played in that for most of the day. I decided to make laps around the yard while listening to books on Audible. I had my headphones on and at one point I looked behind me and they were following me. I took out my headphones and asked them "what are you doing?" and Bennett said "we are just doing what you are doing". I will say that on Tuesday I reached over 15,000 steps!

On Wednesday I started out my day by going to Pine Bluff for my yearly woman check-up. Oh the fun! They left me in the room for an hour with my gown on. Of course the actual procedure takes a whole five minutes but I ended up being in that room for almost two hours. I then had to walk over to the hospital to get some tests done for the colonoscopy I was going to have that Friday. I finally made it back home and watched Trolls two times with the boys before heading to my friend's house in Monticello. We had a girls night out. My sweet friend Brooke (pictured below) got me some really cute birthday gifts. My favorite was the hog necklace. Go Razorbacks! 

Thursday started my colonoscopy prep. Now that was miserable! All I wanted to do was eat something and I couldn't plus I had to take medicines to make me go. It involved a lot of cramping. By the end of the day I was so tired and weak. I've had one before so I knew what to expect but it was still awful.  

Friday I had my colonoscopy which was nothing. I was awake and the next moment I was out and then I was awake again. It was all over! 

I was happy to get a couple different appointments out of the way without having to miss work and get some time to spend with my two favorite little guys. I was also able to listen to two books by Sophie Hudson whom I adore. 

For all of those that had Spring Break last week I hope it was a good one. It was good but I'm still ready to get back into my daily routines. Oh being a creature of habit.....


  1. Oh I am so glad your procedure went well and you didn't really know what was going on.

  2. What fun! Minus the colonoscopy prep. But I'm like you, the procedure itself is just a good nap!! So funny that the boys were walking behind you as you lapped the yard. Yay for 15K steps. And sand piles, and grilling out and Razorback necklaces from BFFs. Sounds like a super spring break.

  3. Wow you got a lot done over your Spring Break!! It seemed like the perfect mix of fun and responsible adult things. That giant sand pile sounds like a kid paradise :)

  4. Minus the women's apt, the colonscopy (and prep for it) it sounds like you had a great Spring Break! I love being able to spend so much time outside.
