Easter with friends

My friend Jodi had her family, Nicole’s family and mine over to celebrate Easter. The food was fantastic, the kids had an amazing Easter egg hunt, we swam and played volleyball. It was a blast.

Elle and Soccer

Well, a couple of Elle’s friends play soccer and last year we went to many games. She always told me she wanted to play, so when I signed her up for this spring soccer I thought she would be good to go. Well, it has definitely been a challenge getting her excited to play. She is really good at kicking the ball back and forth with me and some of her friends. However, when it comes to practicing/playing with her team its another story. She freezes, runs funny, walks, twirls her hair and looks like she is in lala land! Its pretty comical.

Today was her first game, and her coach was great. When she was in to play, she did a lot of wandering around. He got her into the game and let her kick the ball in from off the field and assisted in our first goal. So that was exciting and comical.

Giddy’up Cowgirl

Bunco last night was at Kami’s house and she just lives houses down from mine. It was so nice walking down and back home. Knowing my kids were sleeping and being watched just houses down was great! I got to relax and have a fun time with my girlfriends.

Tonight’s theme was Cowgirl, so I had the perfect outfit; a jean dress, braided front/side ponytail, my cowboy boots and a pink handkerchief Nicole gave me! Being silly and having some fun with my friends! Isn’t that what friends are for, to let you be your silly self?! Love you girls and all the ones that were not there and my friends in other states!

CrossFit BattleFit party

Last night I had the girls over plus Daron(he really is one of the girls! ha!) to celebrate Laura’s wedding and just to get us all together and have a good time. Well, we always have fun at my house, so that was not hard! Daron and Nicole brought over their fire pit and we set it up outside after we all had some food.

We all workout together and have fun while at the gym, so add a little alcohol and we are WILD! Laura had a great time and we sent her off to become a wife with pride! The next day we all got up and went to WOD and we were not that hung over, but could have done without running. We named ourselves the CrossFit Sisterhood of the traveling Sweatpants! May 1st most of us are doing the Warrior Dash and will be coming up with some fun outfits so we look like a group. Can’t wait to show you those photos, so stay tuned. For now enjoy the ones from last night!

Car ride noises

So Jodi, Jordan and my kids and I went to the Drive-In to watch Gnomeo and Juliet then Tangled. We love going to the Drive-In to watch movies, especially since we can go all year long. So as we were waiting in the line to pay for our movie, Elle started making some noises. Jodi and I did not know if they were real noises or not, so we took video to see.

East Valley IronFest 2011

Last Saturday Nicole, Daron and I(as well as other CFBF members) went to support our trainer/owner, Nathan of CrossFit BattleFit. It was our first time attending a CrossFit competition plus Olympic Lifting event and I loved it. It was held at East Valley CrossFit.

Nicole took some awesome photos so you can click here to see Nathan and some of the competitors. We missed seeing the women do their Olympic lifts, however got there at the start of their Metcon (AMRAP in 7 minutes-7 box jumps, 7 kettlebell swings, 7 pull-ups).

Nathan finished 5th overall with a score of 363. Here are the Iron Fest 2011 men’s results. Nicole, Daron and I all had to get back to our kids and unfortunately missed watching his Metcon. Here is a video(sorry about the language), Nathan is right next to Panda. CrossFit has a great community of athletes and I am proud to be one of them now!

On another CrossFit note:
Wednesday morning, East Valley CrossFit gave us(CFBF) an opportunity to participate in their WOD. Nathan, Nicole, Laura and I got up early and went to their 6am class. It was to row a 5K. This was my very first time and I was very proud of myself with my time! As of 7am, I had beat their scoreboard’s #1 time, but got beat throughout the day. Here were the results from the daily WOD at East Valley CrossFit.
