Miscellany Monday....

Happy Monday all! Here in NY the kids start school late. Most schools started last week, but the Pre-K  kids start today. So today is Christopher's first day. Our school only has them only go for an hour the first day just to get them used to going again. He can't wait to go. I guess he has had enough of the summer and is ready to see most of his friends again. I will post pics tomorrow. But I am glad that we will be getting back into a routine seeing as the summer was a big free-for-all! Here are some of my random musings for this Miscellany Monday:

ONE. I am offically a 'SOCCER MOM.' Christopher started soccer on Saturday. It was so cute. The team is mixed with boys and girls....funny enough, the entire team except for 2 kids are all of my friends and their children. Christopher did great, especially for never being on a soccer field before. He even scored the first goal..I was so proud! And no, I am not getting a mini van to go with the stereo type...LOL!


TWO. Since today we are getting back into the routine of school, I started exercising this morning. I kind of slacked for awhile....the entire summer to be exact. I think I am the only person in the world who works out to Billy Blanks' Tae Bo DVD's. I have to say...I hate exercising. But if I don't, I will definately gain back all of the weight I lost...the 45 lbs. that I had gained with Anthony and then another 20lbs. I think this is the skinniest I have been since I was 10. Thanks Billy : )




THREE. As much as I am excited for Fall and can't wait to wear leggings and some oversized sweaters, does anyone else feel like we might was well just add the 100 black plastic bracelets to the outfit and 4 pairs of socks?? I feel like I am reliving my tween years with all of these trends. Now we have colored jeggings and the big belts back too. It is so funny how everything really does come back.

Happy First Day of School! We're into week four here, but I really wish we'd start after Labor Day down here. It's still too hot!

It's not just you. I feel like we're recycling the 80's/90's too. Even when I go shopping for myself, I find myself thinking, "I'm pretty sure I've already owned this and it's still sitting in my closet!"

Haha! Billy Blanks...I own that dvd along with Yoga Booty Ballet and about 10 others. I think plastic bracelets and maybe some Jellies sandals would definitely complete the look! Oh and don't forget your Swatch!

Enjoyed stopping by today. I use to do Billy Blanks' Taebo and really enjoyed it. But, now am a walker and probably will just stick with that from now on.

A happy week to you!

I'm a soccer mom too! But I hope Christopher is enjoying it more than Rylie is. I wasn't able to go to their first practice because it was an hour before Bryce's party, but I'm told they're changing the name of our team to "The Whiners". All the kids cried and didn't want to play. I guess that is why most soccer leagues start at 3 or 4 and not 2! LOL

I used to love Tae Bo. But with "the cage" and the million toys in my house, there is no room for all of that nonsense anymore. (Haha...you like my excuse there?)

I honestly DO NOT see myself reverting back to the 80s. And now, especially that I have paid tons of money to have straight, flat hair, don't even let me see big hair coming back!

Have a great week!

I am looking forward to the big over sized sweaters. I love fall! As for your little one. He's super adorable! Thanks for sharing!
Have a great week!

Wow, back to school! How exciting! I love the soccer picture, the t-shirt is so long and I think that is just the cutest! I have to say that I completly agree with 3, I am honestly waiting to see some kid sporting the 4 socks! I have to say that although I do love leggings I really don't know why anyone felt is was a good idea to bring back the 80's LOL! I hope you guys have a wonderful week!

wohoo for being a soccer mom...Im with ya on the mini van thing though!

Allie said...

HAHA! Me too! We have to settle on silly bands rather than black bands and legging-warmers rather than socks....
Seriously? BBTae Bo? I love the workout vids! I have several that I rotate... Mel B's is a good kicker and Denise Austen is always pretty good. The Firm ones are great for targeted workouts, but that is a SERIOUS recommendation! I'm going to have to find them somewhere...

I've been MIA from blogging lately so just catching up...

I was talking about Tae Bo the other day, wondering if they still made it. Glad to see good ol' Billy is still around. I may have to order a DVD!
