This weekend, we’ve been hanging out around the house since little Livi is under the weather. We had an amazing morning on Friday with a beautiful Mother’s Day brunch at her new school, and then we headed to the zoo for a couple of hours to see the animals and pet the goats. Friday night is when she started to get sick, and we’ve been laying low so she can recover. It breaks my heart to see her not feeling well -especially since she’s usually such an energetic little thing- but selfishly, I love the extra snuggles. Yesterday, she fell asleep in my arms while resting on the couch, and I watched Fools Rush In with her curled up next to me. For the first time in so very long, she felt like a newborn again.

It was a reminder of how quickly time passes even though some days feel longer than others. Even on nights like Friday night, when all of our clothes have to be immediately thrown in the washer, all I can do is laugh and know that these really are the good ol’ days. They’re happening right now. Last night, I already got the best gift: a big sleepy kiss and an “I love you mama” that melted my heart.

Today, we’ll likely spend most of the day in our pajamas, and I feel so blessed to get to spend time with the people who made me a mom. While I miss my mom, nanas and stepmom today, I’m thankful to have people to miss this much.

Hope you have a wonderful day, and a “Happy Mothers’ Day” to all the mamas out there <3 See ya later tonight.

xoxo

    Happy Mother’s Day, Gina! Also, it looks like you are wearing the polar loop in the photo at school- could you give a quick update on the loop vs the fitbit… PRETTY PLEASE 🙂

    • Fitnessista on May 11, 2014 at 7:08 pm

      i REALLY wanted to write this in my review, but i asked polar and they wanted me to keep it to only talking about their brand instead of a comparison:
      i like the loop better than the fitbit. the band of my fitbit was gnarly. even though they said it’s waterproof, water and sweat from teaching zumba would get into the band and it felt pretty unsanitary to me. i like that the loop is one piece and very easy to clean. it also seems to be more accurate. the only bummer is that it’s kind of enormous. i notice that no matter which one i’m wearing, i feel more inspired to be active that day and get to my daily steps 🙂
      hope this helps a little!

      • katelyn on May 12, 2014 at 12:12 pm

        Thank you!!! I was all set on the fitbit… back to the drawing board!

        • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 5:03 pm

          gah. sorry to scramble you!

  15. Megan @ The Skinny-Life on May 11, 2014 at 8:08 pm
