Life Lately


Oh my goodness. It has been far, far too long since my last post (almost 2 years to be exact)...

You know, I've been contemplating a return for the last few weeks, but could never make the commitment to do so. I could come up with every excuse in the book, but instead let's jump right into it and pretend like I never left this little space, mmmkay??

So.  Where do we begin?

Well, since my last post, our oldest (Madden, age 6) has started Kindergarten.  Seriously, I know.  I am still in denial that I am a Mom to a gradeschooler...considering the fact that I'm only 22...or something like that. ;)

And our not-so-little baby is now 2 1/2 and in Pre-school 5 days a week for a few hours.  Which seems crazy, but sooooo necessary for that little dude.  He is much happier (and so is Mommy) when he has some time away!

Aaron and I both celebrated turning the big 3-0 last year and are actually quite enjoying being in our "30's".  For as freaked out as I was about that number, it honestly is not as scary as I made it out to be in my own head!

I am volunteering at Madden's school at least once a week, which is something I have always dreamed of doing.  I know it seems strange to think that I would dream of being a parent volunteer, but ever since I was a little girl, I always begged my Mom to volunteer at my school.  Being a teacher herself, it just never worked out.  That said, Madden looks forward to seeing me in his classroom each week and I love getting to know his teachers better, as well as the other kiddos in his class.  Especially since he's constantly talking about his "best buds" and his "girlfriend"(insert major eyeroll for that one)...this mama's gotta know who he's spending all of his time with!  Plus, he still wants me there.  Something that won't last forever!

We still live in our same home that we bought 5 years ago, and absolutely love the fact that it's literally 2 blocks from the grade school.  Best. Thing. Ever.  Carpool lane? Ummmm...what's that? haha!  And even though we have no plans of moving from this house anytime soon, it never hurts to look at bigger and better!  A girl can dream, amiright??

I am still a lover of all things fitness and eating healthy (ish).  I live on coffee.  I love my fashion, although my dressier "cute" clothes are pretty much just saved for the weekends, as you can find me 95% of the time in my Lululemon.  And I'm not complaining. :D  And even though nothing is permanent, the hubs and I have no plans to add any more little "Schabens" to the fam.  Although, if you watched my instatories from the other day, I did have a very, very realistic dream about giving birth to a little girl.  Like creepy real.  I guess anything could "technically" happen. #teamnomorebabies

Alrighty folks.  That's about all I can think up to fill this little space for right now. Not only that, I gotta get ready to make the frigid cold walk to pick up the eldest from school.  Pray that I don't get frostbite.  Hmmmmm...that carpool lane in my toasty warm car isn't sounding so bad after all...

Until next time...
