Hi all! I just have a few pictures I wanted to share, mostly out of boredom. I'll be catching up on my SP duties tomorrow...promise!
This is my little monkey ringing the bell at the top of a rock wall Sunday afternoon. She was very proud and was able to go higher than the older kids in front of her! I swear, I gotta get this kid in gymnastics! (in the process of fulfilling that promise, actually!)
This pic is from a couple weeks ago when we had a light fluffy snow, perfect for building a snow man! They were having a good time, that's for sure!
And finally...this is my before picture for my push up challenge. You may not believe me,(or want to believe me lol,) but I've not done much strength training. I've always had big biceps, enough so that I was teased when I was a kid. Not in a bad way, I was just known as the girl who you shouldn't mess with because I had the muscles! I was challenged to many of arm wrestling matches and would show up the guys every time! lol Ahhh...the good ol' days!
I'd like to tone them up some more and see what they'd look like if I tried! I'm anxious to see the end result but just don't want to get them too big...don't want to make the boyfriend jealous! LOL ;) Watch out for these guns y'all!! tehehe

I remembered that I haven't done a positivity blog for my team's challenge for a while...it's time to get steppin'!!
I have so many positives, this list is gonna be great!
~A wonderful of mine made me feel very special yesterday!! See, my blog subscriptions had fallen off of her list and she didn't notice, so I kindly gave her a head's up. Afterall, that's what I would want someone to do to me! She appreciated it very much and thanked me 10x's over! I'd like to follow her lead and let you know I'd appreciate it if you'd do the same to me! If you don't open the email notification and then click on the link, the subscription then falls off and you don't receive anymore until you resubscribe. My email fills up so fast with junk mail along with team digests, subscriptions, recipes, exercises, it's easy to miss one! Please, if you don't see me on your blog for a of couple days, come give me a head's up or in the butt! I will be grateful you did!!
~My size 8 pants are officially falling off of me! lol SWEET!
~It's warm outside and the snow has melted! THAT'S a positive, for sure!!
~The chocolate has run out of the candy bowl here at work!! YESS!! *fist pumps*
~I scheduled some appointments with a therapist! I'm going to focus on forgiveness...forgiving Chris for not taking care of his body and forgiving myself for not living this healthy lifestyle then and taking better care of him!
~I scheduled my angel reading appointment!! I think the guilt and anger have kept me from going to this...but with a little work with my therapist first, I'll be more than ready to talk to my guardian angels and arch angels when my appointment date comes!
~I attended a meeting about getting my master's degree in social work! Time to stop looking for fulfillment and start finding it! I can't wait to help more people in real life and not just on Spark!
Well, I think that's a pretty good list, wouldn't ya say?!

And now for the much anticipated slumber party pics! This was the crew. Out of 10 invites, 8 showed up!! I guess when you offer a free night out for the parents with the package, the ratio of those attending improves! lol
(I just love the smile on my daughter's face in this one! Look how happy she is!! :)
They played "Just Dance Kids" on the Wii...
Made tie dye shirts :)
And played some other games like Dogopoly and bingo...
They really had a great time. I bet I could log the whole event as exercise though, boy was I constantly on the go! lol Thank goodness my mom was there to help me out! (well, for awhile!) She pointed out that it was just like some parties I had, where a couple of the girls paired off, there was some homesickness, and a little drama here and there. That's girls for ya! They definitely 'broke me in' with this party! lol! Right after I stopped the shrill screaming I was told "so and so" is crying, so I'd go and tend to them. I'd get that situation under control and then someone else would be needing something or crying! And then there was the incident with the markers! At first it was, we're just going to draw a mustache on the first person to fall asleep...then before I knew it they were drawing all over each other with the markers!! Ahhh!! LOL
My favorite part of the night was after everybody had gone to bed. I was sleeping (yeah right!) in the recliner (so that I could wake up easy if anyone needed anything) and heard someone go into my daughters room. So I get up to go check and see her quickly walking back downstairs. I said, "Is everything alright?" To which she replied, "Yep," and gave me a big hug. Then she said, "Mom, this party rocked!" THAT made it ALL worth it!!
LOL!! Don't show her mom that pic!!
