Hello Tuesday and hello spring! Shockingly enough, the first two days of spring we took a step back in the weather department. Our 70-80 degree days turned into 40 degree mornings and 60 degree days with crazy wind! If we could kick the wind, I’d be in Heaven! Another thing that spring has brought to me is a yucky bug. Yesterday I felt off while teaching spin and it got worse as the day progressed. I’m not sure what’s up, but I’m taking today very easy in hopes of being back to normal by tomorrow. A girl can hope! I haven’t been sick since last April and I know that my Kyani vitamins have so much to do with that! It’s all about giving your body what it needs. Since I’m sick, I thought I’d do something easy and fun today. We’re going to blast back through old A Balancing Act posts and see what I was up to and sharing the first few days of spring!
To start of spring 2011, we got snow in Pittsburgh and we had visitors! My youngest brother, sister, sister in law and friend Julie came to visit us during spring break. We rode the Duquesne Incline, ate at Primanti Brothers, went shopping and explored downtown Pittsburgh!
We spent our first days of Spring in College Station with my dear friend Kristin in 2012! We watched Aggie baseball, went out at Northgate (because I was still young and capable of bouncing back) and spent time with our family!
In 2013, JP and I took at weekend trip to Dallas to visit JP’s sister and run the Rock ‘n Roll Dallas half marathon! As you can see from my attire, the weather was similar to the past few days here. It was in the 40’s and SO WINDY! I’m all for cold running weather though; I finished in 1:53-ish!
Spring is for racing! In 2014, JP and I ran the Neon Splash Dash with my friend Caitlin! It was her first race ever and we had a blast. A few weeks later she ran her first half marathon with me too! Now I’m trying to convince her to sign up for another.
Last year I was 22 weeks pregnant! Just past the halfway mark. I was in my 2nd trimester and getting ready for our European adventure! While I didn’t love being pregnant for a good part of my pregnancy, I truly enjoyed this stage and even admitted it in the post!
This year we spent our first spring weekend playing with friends, watching the Aggies in the NCAA Tournament, going to our first Easter event and birthday party and playing outside at Nonna and Poppa’s house! We’re so lucky to have several friends with baby girls close to Chloe’s age. Reconnecting with all of them has been one of the greatest blessings in my life!
So how do you like to start your spring days?
Clearly we love to be outside! These are the best days to get out there, enjoy the weather and be active…so get to it! I will once I’m feeling better again!
