Weekly Weigh In!

Today was my weekly weigh in and I am pleased to announce that I am now down 13.8 lbs.

I only have a "little" to go. For some reason today I have been feeling a little down... wanting to stick my head in a vat of ice cream. Maybe it is time for another planned cheat! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Update on Weightloss!! I have finally begun to really lose weight I think. I have lost from 217 down to 205 as of this morning in just over a month. And to top it all off... I am NOT hungry at all. If anything sometimes I have a hard time eating everything I am supposed to be eating. I finally have aclimated myself to drinking all that water and I am feeling better than I have in a really long time. I don't feel so sluggish... I don't nap in the middle of the day with my youngest son. It is just blissful! and the best part of it is that once we are on the right path with our weight loss (yes hubby is doing this with me and the sorry sucker has lost 25+ lbs. already!!) I think we will be able to transfer what we are learning through the diet to "real life". I have found this wonderful recipe/weightloss board that has "real life" recipes that are similar in content to the NS foods. Check it out!! Christina Gray is a huge success story who has developed all of these recipes herself! I am very excited to have found her board and can't wait to be able to order one of her cookbooks. I hope this post finds everyone well! I will try to post a pic of my mom's birthday card that I made in the next couple of days. Have a great week!

Bath Time

If you know me you know I LOVE bath pics. The following are pics of my youngest son Jack! He is so funny. All you have to do is pull out a camera and he breaks into the biggest toothy smile I have ever seen (well except Wilson who shows every tooth in his mouth when he smiles). I guess all my kids are really just hams :).

Yuck what a dirty baby!

Stop in the middle for some sugar...

All clean and ready for some daddy hugs! :)

Rainy Day Fun!

I took these pics of the boys at the beginning of the summer when it rained every day for at least 2-3 hours. I thought now would be a fitting time to post them as it hasn't rained her in oh 6 weeks and we are broiling in the 100+ degree heat! Here's to cooler times wetter times and splashing in puddles.

For more of the Rainy Day Fun! go to our online gallery!

Altered Journal

This is a journal that I made for my dear friend's daughter. I just took a regular composition book and covered it in patterned paper and embellishments. I used SU! stamp set: Spunky Alphabet, SU! ink: close to cocoa, SU! Cardstock: old olive, very vanilla, and I used patterned paper that I bought at Hobby Lobby (I don't remember who made it) sorry. I think it turned out very cute! I hope she likes it. She and her mom and dad are making quite the transition as they have relocated several hours from home so that Heath can attend med school. I just know they will soon adjust and settle in!!
