Spa Day

Ahhhh today was such a great day!!! Thank you Nana (Doug's mom) for taking Ella for the day! I had a packed morning with getting my nails and toes done, my hair cut, and my eyebrows waxed. It was wonderful to pamper myself a bit! I then got to have lunch with my husband, ran a few errands I needed to get done then went home and took a long nap. We got to go see one of our old neighbors and friends 3 week old baby today. Oh, it gave me baby fever. I had forgotten how tiny they are. She is such a cute and good baby, look out Doug, we may have to thaw out one of those 13 frozen babies, hehe. I am feeling pretty good, I only had to take my pain medication once today, the pain is subsiding a bit. I got a new yoga and pilates tape so I am going to try to get back into working out a little, slow steps! I haven't really worked out in 6 months or so, I am excited to try to get back into it. I used to be an avid exerciser. I am actually thinking of getting my personal training certification. It is something that I have thought about in the back of my mind for a long time. I talked to a personal trainer this weekend and she said I could even start with a few clients in my home and build from there, hmmmm. It sounds good! Would any of you want me to be your personal trainer, hehe. We will see, I have a lot of ideas in my head these days. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Anyway, my sister is patiently sitting on the phone while I finish my writing, so I better go. I am so excited about my reunion and the 4th of July, yaaa! I hope you all have a great weekend and 4th, please be safe!!! Most importantly, have fun! love, shawndra

PS. Ella pee pee'd on the potty again last night and tonight. yaaa Ella!!!!

I really enjoyed getting to talk with you last night on the phone for so long, it's good to catch up - even though we're just 5 mins away! I'm very proud of Ella!! You go girlie!! I second the excitement for the 4th and for the family reunion! Can't wait to see you tomorrow for the start of the festivities!! Love you bunches and bunches!

WOW the spa sounds wonderful!!I am glad that you were able to go. How fun!
And that sounds like a great idea about the personal training. I had thought about that a couple years ago before I had an ankle injury. Now I just need to get back on the treadmill. With kiddos, it is hard finding the time.

Congrats to Ella for using the potty! Way to go!

Have a great weekend and I am happy that you feeling better!
