I’m in love ❤️.
Happy 15th Anniversary to my hubby, Carlos. What a beautiful surprise to have found your card in my cart this morning, while unpacking my day’s worth of items for class!! Not only was it thoughtful but you know, it struck the deepest chord in my heart with your words. Here’s to many more years, my love. ❤️
Day 4 - AAA ✔️ Day 4 is in the books! I am already so obsessed with this program! I know it’s just a number but I am down 5 pounds since Sunday, and not only that but I feel stronger and more lean and just “lighter” in general. This program is amazing. Exactly what my body needed! Those slider moves were TOUGHHH today, but it’s a hurts so good! Now time to drink my recover and shower! Make it a great Thursday peeps! 👊🏻
We welcomed club legend Philip Amato to last Saturday's game.
Philip became the third Gate player to score 100 post-war goals with an impressive 107 in 181 appearances.
We're sure he would have been impressed with @kanehaysman’s clincal match-winning finish! 🔥
I’m learning that much of our behavior is not a reflection of our best selves or true character but rather our insecurities. This especially applies to female interactions (for proof, just watch any episode of The Bachelor). Men are also mean to one another, just in different ways (#manenough @justinbaldoni). And men and women? Well, I won’t go there.
We forget that at the end of the day we are all just human beings, fumbling around trying to figure out life and find our place in the world, a purpose, belonging, love, and some semblance of happiness (shared goals, people). We all have issues. None of us are perfect. At times, we are all ignorant to our own stupidity and blind to our character flaws. We think and behave differently because we were made differently and none of us have the same life experiences. While we may never understand our differences, we could at least respect them. Compete less. Listen more. Look each other in the eye rather than down at a screen. Maybe even learn a thing or two from one another.
I’m not preaching world peace or saying we should all make a circle, hold hands, and sing Kumbaya. We don’t have to be friends or even necessarily like each other, but we could at least be decent to one another. We could all do better, be better, and seek better. Because here’s the thing. We all hurt, are hurt, and we all know pain. So, let’s not make life harder for each other. Let’s ease the pain. Let’s be good. Maybe even kind.

🎵”You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium”🎵

And this is how I know I am right where I’m supposed to be... I had the whole day to myself yesterday and of course I crammed way too many things in. Returns at Albertville, Government Office in Maple Grove to update my drivers license, get 2 new phones switched over at Verizon and a massage. To say it was a stressful and relaxing day is quite an understatement. For those of you that don’t know, I am the absolute worst with directions and getting around the metro area. So... I’ll try my best to put this very long and traumatic story in a nutshell for you. Here we go... So I’m stuck at the Verizon store in Maple Grove (without a phone) for over 2 hours while they transferred all of my data from my old phone to the new phone. Not a huge deal, but I had scheduled a Massage (first one in over 4 years) which apparently was at the clear other end of town. Again, not a big deal, I’ll just type the location into my phone... wait... I don’t have a “working” phone... and it is now 2:40 and my apt is at 3:00. Never been there before, no clue how to get there. The tech at Verizon suggested I just take a screen shot of the directions on my (non working) phone and just follow that to get there. I’m already feeling a bit unsure and nervous about this... but I thought well how hard could this be? Oh... My... God. Didn’t realize I had to get back onto I94 and head NE of town - well, completely missed the get on 694 part and got on 494 and ended up in (what I now know) Plymouth. My heart was pounding out of my chest, I was a sweaty, shaking, panicking hot-mess (again without a PHONE!) It was now 3:02 and had not a freaking clue where I was, so I just exited as soon as I could, turned around and followed those same steps backwards back to the Verizon store. Once I parked back in the parking lot the tears just began to roll, I was scared out of my mind. Yes, once my phone was complete and activated I rescheduled my apt. and thank goodness they had a 4:30 opening for a facial - and yes, with my now working phone I made it there this time. Eyyiyi! And that my friends is why I’m a huge sheltered, homebody and stay home with my kiddos, where I’m comfortable and familiar with my
Many of you know that I have embarked on a new fitness program I do from home and Mike is doing it with me! Today is day 3 and it was amazing today. Was it hard, of course...what isn't, but what I got after getting the workout in was: * bonding time with my hubby

From why Jameson shots are rarely a good idea 🤦🏼♀️, to how having compassion without boundaries can get you burned🔥, some of these life lessons n’ shit we just can’t read in a book.
Double-tap if you’ve learned something the hard way (and if you feel so inclined, comment with what so the rest of us can capitalize on your hard-earned wisdom ✨)! #inthistogether#datinginnewyork
I’m so bummed. This week’s #wineaboutitwednesday has been cancelled due to some unforeseen health and technology related issues 😭 We’ll pick up next week, and I’m sure we’ll have THAT much more to chat (and vent) about! Hang in there, stay healthy, and try not to let IT problems ruin the beginning of this #busyseason 🤦🏻♀️ #soitbegins#somanygerms#taxseason
My #wcw are these beauties! Knowing one of your best friends is going through pretty much the same things is a LIFESAVER! Even though you aren’t close I know you are always on the other end of the phone. And your little lady is a dream x
