Hi lovelies! How was your Easter? Ours was good but very very full. In fact, we’ve had out of town company in town since last Wednesday! Eric, his dad, his brother, and his friend are all going to The Masters practice round on Monday while my mother-in-law stays with me/Leyton and we’ll have family/friends staying with us till Tuesday of this week.
We’ve been cleaning house, cooking out, trying to keep Leyton sane 😉 , going to church, hosting a 12 person lunch for Easter and all the busy things in between. We had my banana pudding for Easter of course…it’s tradition, so now I’m looking forward to working off all the good food we’ve been eating with our NEW monthly challenge!
Welcome to April’s arms challenge! We asked and you answered that an arms challenge is the way to go as we get ready for toned arms in our summer tank tops and bathing suits. Each week on Mondays in April join us here on our blogs to get your daily workouts focused on arms primarily and stay tuned to our Instagram stories to workout with us!
