Weekend? Update with Jilly

Hi! It's Jilly! Inspired by my sweet sis-in-law's blog, I decided I need to add a bit more day-to-day stuff here on this 'ole blog. I planned to do a Weekend Update, a la SNL. But, in true Jilly form, I am just getting to it now- four days late.

Ah, well. It's my blog and I can do what I want, right?! Whatever the heck I want! Gosh...

So, what happened last week?

On Monday I started this "Feelin' Great in Eight", 8-week fitness challenge. I'm on a team with four twin moms and we get points for eating healthy, working out, drinking our water...all that good stuff. BUT, we have to subtract points when we eat bad things. Eeek! Good thing we get two "freebies" a week, or I'd be sunk!

On Tuesday not much happened. I think I went to Zumba? But, my poor hubby was on call. He left for a surgery around 11 pm and didn't get home till 5 or 5:30 in the morning! Needless to say he was a bit tired!

Wednesday morning I watched my friend Kelli's kids. (The one who gave me this fabulous recipe.) I showed her youngest how to take pictures with my phone, so now I have 5,753,276 pictures on my phone like this:

It's a cute little forehead, though.

On Thursday my Visiting Teacher came over. It was fun to chat with her. That evening my cute friend Jenni did a little "pre-baptism" photo shoot with the kiddos. I can't wait to show you all the pics! Here's a little preview.

Friday we...hmmm...what did we do Friday? It must have been monumental. ;)

On Saturday I co-hosted a baby shower for sweet Jenni who took the kids' pictures on Thursday. I'm excited to show it to you guys! The theme was "Twinkle, twinkle little star". Here I am posing after the shower with the mom-to-be.

Then Sunday was, of course, Mother's Day. That day was full of mixed emotions for me. During church the closing hymn was a difficult one for me. We sang a song that my siblings and I sang at my Dad's funeral five years ago. Most days I'm fine, but hearing that song just brought back a wave of emotion for me, and I was reminded that my Dad won't be there for my kids' baptisms next week. I had to leave near the end of the song and go cry in the bathroom!

After church I was able to take a deliciously long nap, while my hubby whipped up an awesome dinner. He is a much better cook than I am! He is the Grillmaster! We ate outside, even though it was a little chilly.
