Poolside napping and a leg workout

Summer has officially started now that I have had my first trip to the pool with my sis and her kiddos.   My niece is doing Jazz hands for you.

We went to the pool of an apartment complex that I used to live at.  This is the apartment building where Billy and I first met (well, we met in a parking lot but we were both living at this complex at the time).  He randomly moved there with his buddies and I moved in with my friends about 10 apartments away….it was clearly meant to be and he has never been happier.

I got quite the leg workout in

yet she is the one that got to take the nap.

After the pool life got really tough and I had to do things like paint my nails and watch Wheel of Fortune.

During my Wheel of Fortune extravaganza a commercial for Outback Steakhouse came on.  I hate how they strategically place food commercials to be on right around dinner time when I am starving.  Those marketers are sure smart but I showed them and had my own Outback meal at home with a burger (I always put the lettuce under the patty?), a baked potato and grapes.  I wonder if this burger love will stay with me after I have the baby, Billy is sure hoping it does.

Once Billy got home from his track workout (4 x 1600 at 6:04) we met up with my bro and sis in-law for one last sugar fest because they will be leaving for a while.  Side note:  Billy’s brother got into the University of Utah medical school and will be starting in the fall!! They are really excited!

PS don’t forget to read about the coolest thing ever that happened at the fro-yo place last night HERE.

I do have to go back to work today.  I have some drivers ed hours to get in for some students so it is back to being a responsible adult for a few more hours.  If you live in Utah County and you see a drivers education car out and about it is most likely me so please honk, wave and help save me from my boredom.

Have you been swimming yet this summer?  Do you enjoy going to the pool?  Anyone have their OWN POOL?

Is there a certain food/restaurant commercial that always makes you drool?

What is going to be the most boring part of your day or is your day not going to be boring?

Do you go for the fruity or chocolatey froyo more often?

-Definitely more fruity than I used to.

Oh man I was watching Masterchef Junior the other day and they were making 4-layer chocolate cake….I couldn’t stop drooling! On a completely separate note, I ran my fast 4-miler yet and had to share it with you….in 35 minutes & 55 seconds. One mile was even done in 8m25! It was my NY resolution to bring my pace under 9mi/miles and I’m so glad that I’ve finally managed to do so :)!

That Curly is just the cutest!

Although I should, I don’t swim anymore. But I’m at the pool most days in the summer for older kids’ swim practice and tiring out the 3-year-old (it totally works!) so that he falls asleep before bedtime.

I drool when I see your food pics! Now I want a burger, even though it’s not yet 8 a.m.

I’ll have a bit of boring in my workday, though deadlines are kinda amping me up a bit. But then I get to leave early to see the musical performance at preschool!!! Highlight of the year!

Usually more chocolatey on the froyo, though the Lucky Charms marshmallows don’t really fit into either category (and they’re super lightweight for a bonus).

Have a great day!

You are awesome! You should go on the Price is Right! Although I had no idea frozen yogurt was so spendy (but I am sure its worth every penny!) DQ commercials always make me drool.

How can driving around with students be boring? I think it would be stressful! Can’t you sing to them or something, you know keep it interesting;-) The most boring part of my day is the last 2-3 hours of work (7-10 p.m.) Very few patients and I have most of my work done by 6.

Horrayyy for summertime!! Good for you! My summer starts in 14 days… But who’s counting??!!
Today is field day for my 3rd graders so none of it will be boring… Quite the opposite!

I haven’t been swimming at all yet this season. I need to make friends with a pool soon. It’s so humid here!!

Pretty much any food commercial makes me hungry.

Reply

We haven’t been to the pool yet – the weather is crazy here in Illinois. But we did take the kids to the splash park last weekend.

Any commercial with donuts or ice cream makes me drool. Yum….

I love fruity fro-yo.

Reply

You know summer has started when you can hit an outdoor pool! I’m super jealous! Congrats to Billy’s bro!
And although I can never pass up chocolate, fruit fro-yo gets me every time.

I’ve been to the pool a couple of times this season.. but for a while, there was no swimming because the filter was broken. Now that it is fixed.. it is freezing. Hopefully it will warm up soon so I can actually swim instead of just lookinng at the poolwhile sweating!

Reply

My pool is literally RIGHT down the street-we practically live there!!
usually commercials don’t make me drool because it always shows the food so unreaslistically, I mean how do ingredients jump perfectly into a bowl?! :) school-most boring part of day. I like chocolatey froyo sometimes, and fruit sometimes, but not together :)

Reply

I usually go fruity with my froyo, but the texture has to still be creamy! I’m not a fan of the sorbet type flavors. But I always have to put a bit of chocolate on top!

Reply

Your niece is my hero for napping like that!

I have been to y friend’s pool and I love it. Nice and quiet an I have great naps there.

My day will be pretty exciting because I’m babysitting for twin boys and this one year old sister. Never a dull moment!

I love fruity fro yo but my favorite ever is pistachio!

Hope you have an incredible Thursday )

Reply

I always go for a more chocolatey froyo with some fruits on top (generally). I love that she is sleeping on the side of a pool. It’s 9 here and I already want a nap!

I miss living at my parents for their pool! Oh well.

Reply

Oh my gosh, your nieces and nephew are just too cute for words! I sure hope my children inherit my curly hair!

I love everything chocolate and peanut butter so that’s the way I go!

I think the City outdoor pool opens in a couple weeks, but I have not been there in 15 years I think!
Subway always does!
I am sure work will be boring at some point, I am ready for the weekend already.
Both, last night I had pistachio and chocolate fro yo :) Great combo. I am waiting for them to bring coconut, it is my favorite.

Reply

That is AWESOME that you guessed your exact froyo amount, haha. The cashier was probably like how the heck?
I went to the pool yesterday! It was HOTTT.
It depends what I’m in the mood for if I get fruity or chocolately

The last time I went swimming it was in the ocean and I had to get fished out of the ocean by a Greek lifeguard. It was actually a lot less fun/ glamorous than it sounds like, I was crying and spewing water out of my nose/ lungs as 200 people watched. Just a smidge embarrassing! I’m re-thinking my triathlon goal though!

Most boring part of my day = a long work day in the office… Most exciting – this is the last coaching session with my new runners before their first 5k race on Sunday! I’m SO excited to go for one last run with them before the race :)

Those kids are too adorable!

We grew up with a pool in our backyard and I miss having one. I don’t know of any around here that I can hang out it. If I did, I would. Plus, it’s still chilly in Wyoming right now.
The most boring part of my day is working on a portion of my thesis that has been hanging over my head for weeks now and the due date is looming.

Reply

Those sour gummy worms look delish! I need to find a froyo place around my town..

Reply

I love a good turkey burger!! It means Summer is here :) I want to go swimming soon……..!!

Reply

i love how your older niece is holding your nephew’s arm… too stinkin cute!! and when it comes to fro-yo, i’m all about the chocolate toppings. every once in awhile i’ll go for the fruit, but i have to be feelin it. ;)

Reply

I just read the post about how you guys met- SO cute!!!

And I know it’s updated to the most recent photo- but I thought it was sort of funny how it looked like you guys already had photos of each other as your FB profile pics even though you didn’t really each other then haha!

Reply

my parents have a pool and opened it last weekend so i cant wait to bum around their house on the weekends now!! :)

any commercial having to do with wings will make me drool. and outback has some of my FAVE!

most boring part of my day is work…every day , true story ;)

Reply

I haven’t been swimming yet unfortunately. Theres a pool in my building but its indoors so its not the same! But I am planning on going to the beach soon, hopefully!

I tend to go for the fruity froyo. For me, if I’m gonna have chocolate I’m going all out on it and getting full fat and creamy. So for froyo I stick to plain tart usually and get lots of fruit on top!

Reply

Aw too cute!
Well, the new Burger King commercial with David Beckham makes me drool… but not cuz i want a smoothie from burger king ;)
I also love the SunDrop commercials. Doesnt make me drool, but they are throgouhly entertaining (look it up if you ahvent seen them! hilarious dancing!)
I have hit up the pool at our apartment quite a bit already! Love it!

Reply

I love Essie nail polish I just hate how long it takes to dry! I’m so impatient I smudge it each and every time!

Have a great day! :)

Reply

It must be great to have the summer off!! I am sure it is well deserved after dealing with all your silly students year for most of the year! Congratulations to Billy’s brother for getting into medical school!! That’s huge!! I don’t live in Utah but would probably not honk since I wouldn’t want your students to crash lol!!

I swim every Thursday with my little one (mommy-and-me swim class), but I have only been in an outdoor pool once this year. The water was still a little cold a few weeks ago and I haven’t tried since then.

I love fruity froyo! I pretty much get the same thing every time. Plain yogurt with strawberries and granola. Yesterday I took a walk on the wild side and added Fruity Pebbles on half.

Reply

6:04!! I want that pace! How is it that men are just naturally faster than women? My goal is to beat my boyfriend at the mile dash one of these days…

Reply

The most boring part of my day is going to be the first hour … I don’t think I have anything going on! I guess I’ll just have to make some tea and wander around the office visiting (cough, cough, probably bothering) my coworkers :)

Reply

It’s posts like this one that make me wish I was a teacher again. Sigh. I miss summers off. PS – that picture of the kids is super cute!!!

Reply

Your niece is so adorable! What a character!

I love going to the pool–haven’t been yet though!

Olive garden commercials always do me over!

Most boring part of my day = catching up on emails.

I usually go for the chocolatey fro yo

Reply

i want to see what that nail polish color looks like on your nails! i think i’m going to love it.
i have yet to go to the pool – but that will change this weekend!

Reply

I love that you said “he’s never been happier.” Made me laugh so hard. I love going to the pool. I don’t have one where I live but I love swimming when I can. There are some lakes around here that I will go to so I can practice for my sprint tri in August. Also, I live right by the ocean so that’s cool too.

It has gotten hot here in VA as well, run cool!

I love going to the pool! It’s so relaxing. I don’t have one, but my fiance’s parents do.

Reply

We have been swimming but at the lake with our boat, no pools yet. I don’t hang out at pools much anymore. I am sure I will when we have kids and I can’t wait!!! I love pool time.

Food commercials usually don’t entice me, but DQ always gets me with their ice cream cakes and blizzard ads.

Boring thing – working today and tomorrow! But then I am done!!!!

I like chocolate fro-yo with berries on top!

Reply

I went to my cousin’s pool on Memorial Day. We don’t have our own pool, but we have several that we can go to anytime, which is awesome!

My day isn’t boring today – I went for a HOT 3 miler this morning, have a three hour cheer practice with my squad this afternoon, zumba tonight, and then Bible study! :)

Froyo totally depends on my mood – I like the chocolatey/rich stuff more, but I still get the sorbets and fruity flavors especially when it’s 9 billion degrees.

Hello from Germay! I really love to read your blog :-)

We haven´t been swimming yet, because I really don´t like it much.

I love, love, love Haribo jelly bears. Is that the right word for “Gummibärchen” ? ;-)

My day ist NOT boring. I have a little daughter.

There is no froyo in Germany :-(

Reply

We have a pool in the backyard but it’s SO COLD (even in the hot days of summer!). It actually serves well as an “icebath” after long runs.
I definitely tend to go toward the fruity stuff for yogurts, but the toppings might be neutral (Cap’n Crunch/granola/almonds).
Have a wonderful Thursday!

Reply

AWWW I’ve never read your “how we met” story, it was meant to be! :-)
Curly is so cute!

Chocolately fro-yo ever time!!!

Mexican food makes me drool every time… chips, salsa, guac, queso… YUUUUUM!!!!!

Reply

I lifeguard all summer so swimming has lost it’s touch on me… but I do enjoy the occassional open water swim across a lake in town!

Reb Lobster & Olive Garden. Yums.

Today will be boring and sad… cleaning/packing up my apartment. But cleaning is worth it cause the boyfriend is in town for the weekend :)

Haven’t had froyo in so long but I have a wicked sweet tooth & love my chocolate <3

Reply

Curly napping by/in the pool is adorable!

Reply

I have yet to be swimming this year. I’ve lived in NH for 6 years and have yet to actually “swim” in the ocean here. It’s way too cold even in August when it’s 90 degrees!

I will be hitting up the pools soon. I wish we had our own!

Reply

Ha! I’m pregnant too, and I am sucked in by ANY food commercial. For some reason, the Subway ones get me the most. Must be the bread. :) It looks like you had such a fun day at the pool. The kids are so cute!

Reply

curly is seriously the cutest. You’d better tell your sister to watch her like a hawk. Someone might try to steal her …..like me ;)

Reply

Love your niece’s naptime spot :-)

And I always have intentions to go fruity with my froyo, but I ALWAYS end up getting lots of chocolate. Especially if they have snickers!

Reply

I’m totally late on responding to this post, but I just love seeing Curly pics. ;) And my day was NOT boring. I worked at the Child Center at Lifetime this morning, and then we closed on our house in the afternoon! Yayyyy!!!!

Reply

I haven’t been swimming yet this season. I need to find a pool pretty soon though because it’s been really warm here! We have an indoor pool in the workout facility of our building, but that doesn’t really count. :)

Reply

That nailpolish looks pretty! I want to see a pic of what it looks like on your nails! Also, you are one of the cutest pregnant women I have ever seen! :)

Reply

Haven’t swam yet. We had a pool in our previous subdivision. And my parents have one in their backyard. We spent a lot of time there! Now we usually swim at the pool at the Y.

Chocolatey froyo always!

Reply

I run each day for health. I want to be active til I hit 100yrs old! I am motivated by setting new challenges and signing up for new races. I am running the Disney princess half marathon in feb! Yay!!!!

I am regular visitor, how are you everybody?

The apt weight of your body definitely would keep the back pain away.
Even a fall that would otherwise appear so insignificant could lead
to back stiffness. <.
