Back from Denver, and it was such a great trip!|
I got to make a ton of Norwegian food, visit with family, see my grandmother and ate way too much good food.
Luckily i havent gained 10 lbs back haha.
I stayed with my Cousin Ed & his wife Emily with their 3 kids, Olivia, Calvin, and Atticus.
They are some of the smartest well spoken children i have ever met. Calvin is only 6 and speaks like he is in 3rd or 4th grade, fantastic vocabulary!
It makes me realize how much slang and horrible grammar i use haha. Oh well, hopefully when/if i ever have children i'll make more of an effort to speak properly so they can learn better.
It also has made me realize i really want a family of my own. Hopefully it's in the cards for me because i think I'd be a pretty awesome mom.
My Grandmother is so mentally with it for being 90, she even was able to teach me Rummy! Which i love! (Sommer & Lauren - this needs to get into the rotation of board games, more card games!)
My Cousin Derek is going to Argentina for an 8 week externship through the law school he's going to and his wife is going for 4 weeks (who is also a lawyer), needless to say i'm pretty jealous. Glad he's getting these amazing opportunities though.
When i look at my family there's such a range of personalities and levels of success it's pretty interesting to think about how people end up in the places or situations their in.
Anywho, great trip and there's another one around the corner!
On May 30th I'll be driving with my parents to our cabin outside of Durango, stay there for a week to help with some remodeling of the cabin. First up is the bathroom so lots of peeing and pooping in the woods! haha. Then the next week I'll be going to a spiritual retreat for a week in New Mexico. It's one i've always loved going to so I'm looking forward to it.
Hopefully being busy and put to work those two weeks i'll be able to keep on track with my weight as well. Along with starting Ultimate Body Bootcamp when i get back on June 21st.
So far I've lost about 11 pounds and i'd like to lose 10-15 more. Slowly but surely I'll get there :)
