A 1-day trip to Elgin...

Yesterday my family and I decided to go visit family in Elgin, IL...I come from a big, loud, European family that's always growing, so visits are chaotic and sometimes stressful, but also a lot of fun (especially for the kids!)

We took the boys swimming, let them play in the sprinkler, gave them ice cream, let them play in the bounce house, they picked raspberries with grandma, visited my great grandmother (Md's great great grandmother), etc.

Busy. Busy. Busy. Busy. Needless to say they slept VERY well last night!




Last night--After the boys got ready for bed my aunt Caryn and I walked a little over 3 miles, and I had walked a mile earlier with my aunt Mal.

Despite being tempted to cheat on my 100- day challenge. I didn't! :) I'm seeing results ladies and gents, and I'm feeling pretty damn proud of myself. ( 100 Day Challenge )

Took some more progress pictures too...in a bathing suit! lol Can't wait to post them next to the after pics! ;)

Today--- has been pretty relaxed. Had a nice drive back "home" with Mal...we talked about how wild we were and reminisced & chit chatted about people from our past.

It really is crazy how fast the years fly by...The old me never thought she'd be a mom, or soon to be college grad.
 I'll be 23 in four months, graduating in six months...Wtf? Feels unreal.

Anyways...

I've had a good weekend thus far. & it was nice to be surrounded by family for a couple days...
