Feeling Blessed!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I woke up a little late today...I took benedryl last night due to a wonderful (NOT!) wasp sting that is not healing (Darned Diabetes!) as quickly as I would like it and is itching like crazy! So I didn't get up until 10:30 (not normal for me...I'm normally up at 7). I woke up to a my 2 little stinky poos that aren't old enough to go to school yet. Eli had climbed up in to the cabinet and got the whole bag of sugar and decided to "make sand" and Baby Moose was just playing. Baby Moose had some applesauce and strawberry-banana yogurt and then made the funniest faces I have ever seen and even though I had to clean up sugar, I feel totally blessed...I have 2 of the cutest, funniest, most amazing little boys in this world! Not to mention the 2 smartest, sweetest, cutest girl and boy at I am blessed 4 times over!!! My kids are my life!
I am going to finish picking up the house in just a bit, then cut some grass which will burn some major calories!!
Hope everyone has an equally blessed day as me!

Feeling better :)

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Today I woke up and I am a little sore, which compared to yesterday, is great! Yesterday, I was in bed all day taking Aleve. My knee is feeling much better but I still have a golf ball sized knot on top of it. I may even go walking tonight! I don't wanna be fat anymore! I have lived too long in this fat suit!!!! It's time to go!
I want to be an amazing role model for my kids...they deserve a mom that will get out in the yard and play with them and take them to all their extra curricular activities.
I want to run (well maybe more of a jog/walk lol) a 5k in November. That is a mini goal that I have wanted to do do forever!
It is most definitely time to get my butt in gear! I may even let my 7 year old do it with me...She is my little runner!

    Make sure to ice the crap out of that knee. I think you are underestimating your potential. You could probably do a 5k now (except with the knee).

My weekend...I so rocked the mess outta the zebra print shirt :)

Monday, September 24, 2012

This weekend was AWESOME! I got to Shawn's in VA about 10pm on Friday night after dropping my 7 year old off with her Mimi (my grandma) in Emporia, VA. I met Shawn's dad who is awesome. Then Shawn, Baby Moose, and I went to bed since we had to get up early the next morning.
On Saturday morning, we got up, got ready, headed to Emporia for the VA Peanut Festival. Shawn got to meet several family members who loved him. I saw lots of friends from high school. Then about 4pm we headed back to Gloucester to drop Gabriel off with his Grandpa and we got ready for our date.
I put on my one shouldered zebra print shirt, black dress pants, and a cute pair of black dress flip flops (and I put on my spanxx, lol!) and we went to a Japanese steakhouse. While we were there, I was feeling a little out of place since I don't normally dress like that. Shawn kept telling me how beautiful I was and then I got hit on by the Hibachi chef and 2 waiters fought over who was doing my drink refills. Shawn just sat there and laughed :)
Then we went to the beach and walked and held hands and it was sooooo romantic!
I can't wait for many more date nights with this wonderful man!!
I headed back to SC last night after visiting with my Mimi and my Dad. I had a mishap but I am alright. I was getting gas about midnight and was walking back to my vehicle from paying and I collapsed. I don't know if I tripped or what but I whacked my head on the concrete, my right hand is bruised, my right knee is the size of a golf ball and I cut my left foot..but I'm okay! I was only 3 hours from my house so I got back home ok. I have had a headache all day and I am really sore (I guess that comes from having 250 lbs crashing down!), but I am still going to try and walk tonight.
I do have a new mini goal...I turn 30 on November 14th. Right now, I am in a size 22 in jeans...I want to be an 18/20 by my birthday!

    Sounds like a wonderful trip. Wow! you must have rocked your outfil. The chef AND two waiters??!! I would say those 18/20s had better look out, 'cause here you come!!! emoticon
Maybe if your headache continues it would be well to get checked out. So glad you weren't seriously injured.

    might be a good idea to be checked for a concussion since you are still having a headache.

Shawn is right--you are beautiful and sparkly...

My Dress Was TOO BIG! YAY!

Friday, September 21, 2012

I'm slowly packing for my trip this weekend. Shawn and I found a babysitter for the 2 kiddos I am bringing so we are going on a date...a nice romantic date that involves going out to eat and then a nice little moonlit stroll on the beach. So anywho, I'm going through my closet trying to find something really cute to wear (my clothes are limited...I won't buy anything else to wear until I lose more weight unless it involves workout clothes or tank tops since I am so hot natured!) and I start trying on things that used to be cute on me once upon a time...My dress that I am wearing in my class reunion pics also posted in my photo album is TOOOOO BIG!!! I am ecstatic!!! I also tried on this sweet little black dress that I bought 2 years ago that still has tags on it that was a teeny bit too small and IT FITS! That's not what I am wearing though...I am wearing a one shouldered zebra print top, dress pants, and dressy flip flops on my date. I am determined to rock the mess outta that outfit too! Woo Hoo!!!!
This is the dress that is now too big and that gaps in the back...

Today went pretty well...

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Today went pretty well as far as my mood. I am however dealing with a teething almost 10 month old and he just wanted his Mommy today :) I love that little boy, well all my babies, so much :)
I didn't get to work out but I did get to take a moment just to rest without kids since they all went to church to do children's choir tonight. It felt nice just to sit in the quiet.
Tomorrow, I have to get some cleaning and packing done. My oldest, Chloe, and my youngest, Gabriel, are heading to VIrginia for the weekend while the 2 middle boys spend some time with their dad. Shawn will be meeting a lot of my friends and family this weekend at the Virginia Peanut Festival. I'm so excited!
