Last Week with the Funk's

Welcome to my (new) weekly post of what we did for the week!  I'll share things I'm loving, things I'm working on and everything in between. Some weeks will be exciting, but some will probably be boring #keepingitreal  

I started out strong last month and keeping up with what we were up to during the weeks.  This month has been a completely different story, but for good reasons!  I took the last few weeks off because there are some big changes heading our way in the Funk house.  I can't wait to share what we've been up to and what we are gearing up for.  In the meantime, here's a look at what we've been up to for the last few weeks ;)

My girl's and I had a little Valentine's Day celebration with a few friends.  We decorated cookies, made Valentine's Day cards and played outside to get some of the sugar out of our systems.  Everything was either heart shaped or covered in sprinkles.  I'd say it was a win!

I was actually sick later in the week and didn't do much but catch up on sleep, which is part of the reason I haven't been blogging.  I'm way behind on all the fun things to do in Tampa posts I want to get out to y'all.

Over the weekend we went to a really fun Valentine's workshop at AR Workshop in St. Pete.  I had fun at their blogger event and couldn't wait to take my girls for their kids event.  They made the most adorable wood signs for their bedroom and did it all on their own (for the most part)!


I had the chance to get a little "me" time and head to a blog event at First Watch in Clearwater.  We tried out their new Sunrise Project coffee that is so good and of course ate some of their delicious food.  I will be sharing more about their coffee in a few weeks. 

We spent our Valentine's Day morning at Lowry Park Zoo and finding out the new baby orangutan's name.  In case you missed my Instagram post, it's DIRA! We spent a few hours there seeing the animals, going on an expedition and feeding the birds before heading out for our MOPs Valentine's Day party at the park.  It was a fun, busy and sugar filled day!  I even got to go out to dinner with friends twice last week!  My husband is pretty awesome ;)

We ended our week and our weekend low key.  We hung around our house, I had a couple of photo-shoots and my husband put up our new fence; which was fine by me because we have a busy week ahead and then we are heading to Georgia for a kid-free vacation!

I hope you all have a great week!  Let me know if you have anything fun planned in the comments!

Things to do Tampa Bay | Monster Jam

Thank you to Feld Entertainment for gifting us tickets to Monster Jam!  As always, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
Did you miss the Monster Jam show earlier this month?  If you did and are super sad about it (like I am), then you have another chance to go!  Monster Jam is coming back this weekend, Saturday, February 3rd, to Tampa and will be providing the adrenaline charged family fun we all love at the Raymond James Stadium!

If you are a fan of Grave Digger, El Toro Loco, Soldier Fortune, Cleatus and Hot Wheels, you are not going to want to miss this special show!  You will seriously be on the edge of your seat the entire time!  It's not too late to get tickets and your kids will definitely thank you for it.  If you have little ones, like I do, then you can easily turn this into a fun date night too.  Tailgating, pit parties and more truly does makes for a great night for all ages!

For more information on Monster Jam, check out their social media!

Last Week with the Funk's

Welcome to my (new) weekly post of what we did for the week!  I'll share things I'm loving, things I'm working on and everything in between. Some weeks will be exciting, but some will probably be boring #keepingitreal  
If the week before taught me anything, it's that slowing down and taking a break is okay.  My husband was off work on Monday for the holiday, so we basically just hung around the house.  We had plans to go honey-bell picking (something we've been trying to do for weeks now), but it was really cold out again and I wasn't feeling great, so that didn't happen.  I even had plans to meet a friend for lunch and had to cancel that too.

I started a new Bible study session last week and it felt so good to be back since before Christmas.  The study we are working on is called The Quest and it's going to be a good one.  I can't wait to share more with you as the weeks go on.  We had a play date in the afternoon and the girls had a blast, as always.  

We even had our first MOPs meeting for the year and it's always so much fun to have all the wonderful women and moms I've met over the last year or so all in one room.  We talked about the importance of YOU and ended with yoga that was both entertaining and relaxing!

There is a nearby library that hosts a music and free play class on Thursdays and we decided to meet up with some friends, run off some energy and have a lunch date at Chik-fil-a.  Did you happen to read my last blog post and the only blog post I managed to write last week?  I promise we don't go to Chik-fil-a as much as it sounds. 

My husband and I even started a Bible study together last week, called Love and Respect, that is going to be pretty amazing too.  I'm excited to see where it takes us in our marriage and how it helps us grow as a couple.  My in-laws kept our girls that night, so we got to go on a date after our class and decided chips and queso at Tijuana Flats was the right way to do that.

I got a much needed morning with a good friend Friday morning since my girls were still with their grandparents and got to enjoy my coffee hot!

Since this weekly post is about real life and how our week went, I have to admit that we spent most of our Friday evening cleaning and making sure none of us had lice after a text from a friend who's kids had it.  Thankfully we came out in the clear, but I know with Emma starting school soon, this is only the beginning of notes like that and even though it's a pain, it's not a big deal.

We did have an amazing weekend.  The weather was perfect both Saturday and Sunday.  We went shopping, put together and bounced on the girls new trampoline, had friends over and a movie night, grilled out and watched the football games!

Actually, even though this week seemed slow, it was eventful.  I'm excited to share some big things that are happening in the Funk house soon!

How was your week?
