Oh my gosh you guys, this weekend was AMAZING.
First of all, I got to see my Youtube hero, Markiplier, at Kings Island Saturday. I was really hoping to meet him, but due to a huge miscommunication, you could either go to see him speak, or go to the meet-and-greet, but not both. So I missed out. But, it was cool to be there nonetheless, and hopefully he’ll be back next year!
Second, I got my certification to teach PiYo! I attribute my 20+ pounds of weight loss to this program; and after continuing to do it for 4 years, I got an opportunity to become an instructor and now I get to teach it at the wellness center where I work part-time! I’m SO excited for this and I can’t wait to start helping others gain strength and balance.
Needless to say, this weekend has been BUSY. And it’s about to get busier. Thursday is Allison’s official last day of preschool *Sob*, and the day after we’re going out of state for a weekend vacation! As such, our menu this week consists of easy and cheap meals- mainly ones that I made during my freezer meal session last week.
I also probably won’t have a shopping post up next week because we’re coming home on Tuesday, but check my Facebook or Instagram pages because I may at least post a picture of my shopping trip!
