Tanya at The Other Side of the Road just did a great post on sunscreens. I got really aggravated with going through an entire spray bottle for one trip to the pool, so this year, we picked up a new lotion and have loved it! We're using Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport 30. It has a great smell, is very light, and provides excellent coverage.
2) Kid Swimsuit
I'm super jealous of Ari's new suit from Target! We tried the Cat & Jack line, and it just wasn't fitting her right. The Xhilaration line is much more her fit, and I wish they had her suit in my size- it is so cute!
3) Dance Parties
My kids (and I) are obsessed with watching music videos on You Tube on our television and having dance parties. Ari and I are loving Demi Lovato's "Really Don't Care" with Cher Lloyd. My kids also love searching up Just Dance videos where someone has recorded the screen while playing the video game. It's pretty fun to follow along with, and if you do a couple of videos, you can work up quite a sweat! New Tuesday Training video?!? Ha!
4) Intervals App?
So I wasn't planning to get back into running again until Thanksgiving when I start training for my February 5K, but my body gets in shape so much quicker when I run. The only problem is that I HATE distance running, and my bones aren't really a fan of it either. Robert and Nicole over at Adventures of a Semper Fi Family have convinced me that I will do a lot better if I do intervals of running and walking. I'm loving it and did a 3 mile course yesterday in about 33 minutes! Way better than my 45 minute 5K of jogging super slow! The only problem I'm having is that I'd like to run with an intervals app that will buzz/vibrate/make a sound when it's time to transition to the next interval instead of me looking at my phone or guesstimating. Please give me some recommendations! (P.S. I have a Samsung if that makes any difference in apps.)
5) Date night and gift ideas?
Next week, Robert and I are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary (and 12th year together)! I finally found a babysitter that I trust, and we are hoping to start scheduling more date nights. Give me some fun suggestions please! (FYI we don't drink, so wine/beer tastings aren't our thing.) Also, any thoughts on anniversary gifts? We don't always do gifts, but if you give me a good idea, we may just change that!
In case you missed any of this week's posts:
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of sun and pool time! I'm off to cheer on my boy at his divisionals swim meet! See you back here on Monday!
