Link up with BlogHoppin to share your fitness goals!

Last winter I was going to the gym four times a week and getting on the elliptical or bike for a minium of 45 minutes.I am an avid runner and during this past summer and fall I can honestly say I was getting back on track! I was running four times a week minium per week (I use to run daily a min. of 40 min. before I had my son) and I was doing some free weights at home. When I found out I was pregnant and the autumn rainfall began and was getting cool out I wasn't going to drag my son out and my first trimester I was SUPER tired. So...needless to say since about Novemeber I haven't been running or anything (my husband moved to a different gym and we no longer get a free membership) and this is my first break from being a workout aholic since about 11 years ago when I ran in college. I am embracing this break as I feel like I have needed it. I am on my feet all day at work and it only continues when I get home. I know that once the weather starts warming up I will get back into the groove and running again...any double jogging stroller recommendations are welcomed! Also, my husband and I are hoping to be able to budget out joining a gym with childcare within the month and if so I will be hitting the gym and my workout routine...until then I am enjoying the downtime!

If you do need motivation to get back into shape or trying to balance family and working out make sure to check out Lindsey Brin. I swear by this.. after my first pregnancy this is what I did to ease back into working out and I looked better after having Ethan than before and I attribute it this to her workout routines. Check them out!

I am also linking up with The Primary Gal for Friday Free for All.

Now for a little bit of this and that...

I have been working on my sub binder for when I go on maternity leave.

S  I got a Scotch laminator for Christmas and printed out the baby's labels for her room.

We also went to the zoo on Sunday when it was warm out (40 degrees...a heat wave here right now!). 

 Last, but not least a freebie for the classroom.

Since we are snowed in I thought I would link up with with blog hoppin for some New Year's resolutions fun!

Day 1:
Fun and Family

My number one thing for this coming year is to get a family vacation in. It is challenging sometimes with my husband's job, but it is so necessary!

The other major thing I need to work on is making time for just Matt and me. We never really go on dates or out together. So we definitely need to work on that.

Last, but not least to enjoy being home with my little ones! I can't wait for our new addition to be born in May!

Day 2: Crafting and Creating
One of my major goals for this is to get everything ready for the new baby... I have a lot of ideas that I would like to do and have begun working on...
Closet hangers...we have a weird closet rack that's why they are c shaped.

Also, to complete the hallway decor. I have had posters up in there forever, but I want to revamp it with more personal pictures. I made this with my new Calligraphy Collection cricut cartridge and this is the first of many new things I want to add to the hallway.

A teaching goal I have is to make some dramatic prop boxes. I have been adding lots of pins with ideas of what to make from post office items to farmer's market so I need to start finding and saving materials related to the different these prop boxes.
