Happy Saturday!

This morning we took the kids to our local Target for their story time event. Today's theme was Dr. Seuss's The Lorax book. They read a few Dr. Seuss favorites including: Green Eggs and Ham, Hop on Pop, and Go Dog, Go. Each child received a goodie bag with cheese crackers, fruit snacks, juice boxes, stickers, a bookmark, and a $2 off coupon for Dr. Seuss books.  The kids enjoyed it! We only lasted about 45 minutes... it was a 2-hour event.

When we got home we made an Easter craft that I found on Pinterest!

Impromptu photo shoot

Here are some new pictures I took the other day. I was hoping to do an outdoor shoot with the kids, but the weather has been so unpredictable here. We ended up staying inside and got these:

That's not an owl!

I have watched this about 10 times and laugh hysterically each time. My kids are something else!

Operation Skinny update {With comparisson pictures!}

So this is what I look like MINUS 16 pounds as of this weekend. I feel so good and get excited knowing I'm headed in the right direction. I've hit a few plateaus, but its mostly been behavior-induced. Meaning, knowingly overeating during the holidays, etc. I need to be real with myself because I love food. I know that there will be days I eat more food than others. But I'm working out and taking classes that I LOVE. So... whatever. I need to be realistic. Going on a diet doesn't work for me. Watching what I eat and how much of it I eat, does.

BEFORE (183lbs):           CURRENTLY: 2/14/12 (167lbs)

It stinks in there...

The other day, the kids and I were driving home from my sister-in-law's house. I happened to be on my cell phone talking to my mother-in-law and went on to tell Brock that I was talking to daddy's mommy. He asked me how she was his mommy, so I tried to explain that he was her baby once and he grew in her belly the same way that he had in mine. Without a beat, he says to me, "No I didn't grow in yours belly. It stinks in there!" Ha! Talk about laughing so hard that I almost peed my pants! From the back seat he kept saying, "Mom, what are you laughing at?" So funny!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Lilly!!!

Our little princess is 2 years old today! I can't believe it! We celebrated her birthday this weekend with our family. Lilly now has a beautiful assortment of new clothes!! I cannot wait until we can share clothes!

Being that her birthday is soon after Christmas, we requested that people get her clothes for gifts instead of toys. Both kids still have unopened toys in their closets from Christmas!

Happy birthday Lilly. We love you so much! Always remember that you are a strong and beautiful little girl. Your heart dances to its own tune. You sing like an angel.
