Beachbody Summit 2015 // July 17

I missed my Cize workout, but I did enjoy the workshops and general session on July 17th.  There were all sorts of people there.  All ages, all sizes.  Mostly white women, but there were men and various races.  There were people with babies and people who smoke (which was confusing, but we're all working on things).

Here's Chalene Johnson at the general session.  It was great to see her live after doing all her workouts and listening to her podcast :)

Here's some of the team after our workshops.

Loren, Jillian, me, Shayla, Elena, Katharine, and Janice

That evening we went to Maragitaville for dinner as a team :)

Back: Jillian, Loren, Stephanie's hubby, Janice, Shayla, & me

Beachbody Summit 2015 // July 16

July 15-20, 2015 I went to Nashville, TN for the Beachbody Summit! My parents were gracious enough to come down to New Mexico to watch my boys while Albert was at work :)  It was the first time I had been away from my kids and hubby since I went to Jordan in July 2010.

On Thursday, July 16 in the morning we went to Melissa McAllister's suite to meet her.  She is a top coach and was in the PiYo at home videos.  She's also my coach's coach so we're sort of on her team.  She's the one with long brown hair in peach in the front.

Thursday afternoon I was able to go to a live PiYo workout with Chalene Johnson and some teammates.  

 I also met up with my old roommate Courtney who is also a Beachbody coach.

We went to the Opening Ceremony on Thursday evening.  Here is a picture with my teammate Katharine. 

We ditched out early and spent the rest of the night at the Core, which is the Beachbody store.  I bought a Cize hat, PiYo shirt, Fixate recipe book, and the Cize program and then waited for my teammates and ride forever.  We were all so tired I didn't get to go to my live Cize workout I was scheduled for the next day.  

I did get to see Tony Horton outside the Core :)

Laundry Room Remodel

We've been planning on remodeling our laundry room since we moved in, but finally got around to doing it.

Here are a couple pics of what it looked like when we moved in:

We painted it and added the washer and dryer when we moved in, but I really wanted to install cabinets, a drying rack, and a counter.

Albert made the drying rack by hand.  He used a kayak hoist so it will stop easily.  It has been really nice!

We filled up the cupboards with all the cleaning products I bought couponing.  Before I had them on the floor or in the pantry and it's so nice to have them put away.  Albert installed the cupboard by himself and I helped him hold it up :)

Albert spent a lot of time working on the countertop.  He even made a trap door where you can remove the door and get in to turn off the water.

Albert bought the inside of this cool pull out cabinet, but made the front of it.  I love how much storage there is!

Here is the new light we installed before we put up the drying rack.  I love having a pretty, sparkley light fixture in the laundry room :)   It's now one of the nicest rooms in the house!

Independence Day!

Albert had to work in the morning of the 4th of July and Quentin was feeling terrible so we missed the ward breakfast and parade.  We did light fireworks in the evening so that was fun!

Wyatt in June

My little cutie pie! He put this hat on himself and he looked so cute I had to take a picture :)

Sometimes he likes to pretend he's a scary monster, but when you get scared he quickly says that he's not a monster, he's Wyatt so you won't be scared.

He was sick and only wanted his dad and the only way I got him to stop crying was to show him himself in the screen and I got this great smile.

Wyatt is still getting the hang of communicating and we play lots of games of "read Wyatt's mind".  This particular day he wanted a drink, but not water and not Crio Bru.  He wanted Shakeology! I was happy to give it to him especially since he was sick and wasn't eating much.

ABQ BioPark Zoo

On June 5th we went to the zoo for free and saw a bunch of cool animals.  My favorite was the baby hippo.  So cute!

Hippo mommy and her baby.

Explora! 2015

I took the boys to Explora! on the free summer fun day on May 29.  It was packed of course so it was tough to check out all the learning stations, but it was pretty fun.  It's always fun just to get out of the house and do something different.

Hummingbird in the House

On May 15th Albert left the front door open while he was taking out the trash and a hummingbird flew into our house and flew to the a window on the top floor above the foyer.  This window is not accessible unless you have a very tall ladder so we didn't know how to get him out.  

He kept bumping his nose on the window and it took him awhile to wear out.  He finally got tired after an hour and rested on the window sill. 

After it was clear he wasn't going to come down on his own, Albert climbed a ladder and grabbed him with our tiny fish net.  He was able to let him go outside where he flew away.  Crazy experience!
