Monday Blues Don’t Live Around Here

I refuse to accept Mondays as bad orΒ  not kind. Its a fresh start and a new week people!
Yesterday I tried to take pictures of moments to prove it!

Weekend’s Are my favorite

What a fun weekend. A mixture of business and pleasure! Saturday started out with a hike and ended with an Arbonne event at the local Curves

After this fun ladies night out I went to an event with Andrew and see some friends!
Sunday morning another hike and grocery shopping, meal prep and some Arbonne time.
Made gluten free corn breadand chili for lunches this week.

Sunday afternoon we went to our friends for a BBQ. So low key and yummy. Everyone brought something to share. It was a great time of fellowship and laughs. Apparently the best way to deal with over population of flies is a shop vacuum.

Playing Big

I am now learning to play BIG! I have been reading a new book called the 10X Factor by Grant Cardone. I hadnt heard of him until recently. Its about making your goals 10X bigger and working 10X harder to meet those goals.

I want to be consistent and ever growing and improving. I have become way to use to mediocrity and I dont like it.

So yesterday I had an unexpected afternoon off from my nannying so I put my walking shoes on and went store to store seeing in local businesses would consider shopping with me for their holiday baskets. I got 15 out and plan on 15 more today. It was scary but I did it and I am alive. No one grows in their comfort zone.

I am working hard on keeping promises to myself and going all in! Am I gonna be tired? YUP! Am I gonna want to give up? Yup. Is it going to be worth it HECK YES!~

Would love to hear how you all 10X your efforts!

Surprise Birthday Parties are ALOT of work!

Guys my weekend was COMICAL!

I planned a last minute SURPRISE birthday party for my darling guy. I invited a handful of close friends and his family. First of all our house is TINY πŸ™‚

It went off without a hitch lol everyone said yes and a few no’s and babam. Easy menu (pizza, salad, soda, and cake)

Then the fun began on- On Thursday I found out he had to work on Saturday and that his daughter was going away for the weekend….I tried not to freak out but instead said you NEED to be home by 5:15…I am taking you to dinner…not a complete lie but I was bringing the dinner to him πŸ˜›

Than Friday after work I had plans to make the cup cakes and brownies…15 minutes after the brownies came out of the oven he came home (2 hours early!)

Than I realized I bought a carrot cake mix instead of white cake!!

Saturday morning I got a text from Andrew’s aunt saying her husband had the flu and they wouldn’t be able to make it 😦 So sad! Then I realized this meant I needed to clean quickly so I could help Andrew’s mom mid afternoon with her mom so she could head to an appointment.

I went hiking with my friend and ran to the grocery store to get the RIGHT cake mix! King Arthur gluten free cake mix to the rescue! Then on to Ellen’s to bake the cupcakes and “gramma sit!”

King Arthur to the rescue!

I picked up Andrew’s daughter and back home to finish cleaning and decorating!

Andrew’s brother Mark was keeping Andrew occupied so I could clean and decorate. Oh the things the poor guy went through to keep my guy from coming home. Among the looking at EVERYTHING is Dick’s Sporting Goods and saying his truck was acting funny!

Andrew got home at 4:30…30 minutes before everyone arrived. Thank goodness we had hidden the goodies and balloons. I ran out to get pizza. The whole time wondering what I would tell him when I walked through the door with a ton of pizza’s….one idea was that they were having a special on pizza’s and I was stocking up for the week. Or that we were going to feed the homeless….Thank goodness I didn’t have to use either excuse!

Guests started arriving at 5. He was upstairs yelling down to me about where we were going and why I wouldn’t tell him. Eventually I called him down stairs. Needless to say he was surprised!
He said and I quote “Now I can die happy” He had a fantastic time.
Moral of this book of a post, I won’t throw a surprise party anytime soon.
