Fun at Work!

It's not super fun that we're able to stop and really have a good time at work, but when we can, we definitely try! I feel so lucky that I work with such great people. There's never a shift that goes by that I'm not spending the day with at least a few people I consider good friends. Not to mention that so many of the people that I work with are brilliant, so I always have ample opportunity to learn! The other week, we were able to have breakfast for dinner. It was so much fun! I brought cinnamon rolls that were gone within a matter of minutes, but that wasn't all for food. Someone brought a griddle, and there was also a waffle maker present, so we had a full on feast. It was a nice change of pace to be doing something different. We had a really good time with one another, and I look forward to more fun days to mitigate the difficult ones!

After Work Snuggles

So, for work, I'm required to work a 50/50 schedule, which means that in a month, 1/2 of my shifts have to be day shifts, and 1/2 of my shifts have to be night shifts. In addition to this, I have to work at least 4 weekend shifts a month. Sometimes, I come home from a night shift, but definitely want to still play with my baby. The easiest way to ensure that this happens is to have little buddy come snuggle with his Mama in bed. He's so cute, and oftentimes, he'll even come tuck me into bed before I fall asleep. I love that boy more than anything in the entire planet!

Boating with Ang

I've caught the bug. After living in Utah for 4 years, and wondering constantly what the draw of owning a boat and going boating at any available opportunity was; I understand. My awesome friend Angela, who I know from Crossfit, but have discovered that she is way more fun than just having as a gym friend, invited me out for a day of boating. There were several of her firefighter friends, and a bunch of our friends from the gym, and it was such a fun day! We went out on Utah Lake, which was perfect, because it's only a few minutes away from our house, so time from leaving the house to time on the water was roughly 25 minutes. You can't beat that! After getting into the water, it's only a matter of minutes before you have free access to open water and all the wave surfing you desire! I was really nervous the first time we went, because it had been years since I had tried to do anything that required me to be towed by a boat. :) I was lucky that I had a boat full of great teachers, and I was able to get up almost immediately! It's incredible the difference that Crossfit has made in all aspects of my life, because I guarantee if I wasn't as strong as I am now, it would have been a lot more difficult. We had a fabulous day out on the boat, and I was thrilled when only a week later, I received another invite to go again! This time, Jason and Hazen came with us. We went out with Ang and her little boy, as well as another friend, Alaina, and her little girl. these two Mama's are AMAZING, and they were able to surf with their kids on the same board. Super awesome! It is so much fun to get out and do something so different than what I experience during the day to day, without having to travel very far away from home! I can't wait for next summer, and I hope we can go boating plenty more!
