Easter Weekend in Numbers {Bikes, Boxes & Bunches O'Fun}

Morning, friends! Happy Easter Monday. Christ is Risen, He is Risen indeed. I am so grateful for my Savior and his sacrifice. This weekend we celebrated Easter at home as a family and it was quite a wonderful weekend. I thought I'd switch up the recap, therefore I present, my Easter in numbers.

3,600 || Seconds spent napping after lunch.

10 || Minutes spent prepping for my LAST 6AM BODYPUMP CLASS! #woofitsgonnabeadoozy

It might not sound like a lot got done this weekend but I sure am bush waked. Might have something to do with ALLLLL the delicious food eaten on Sunday night. Did not make for the best frame of mine for teaching this morning, but hey, it's the last class so I gave it my all. We are back on the healthy train now until the trip because, hello, bathing suits and European women ;)! Hope you have a fabulous Monday, I'll see you tomorrow < 3!
