Had a busy day. I got my cardio in walking w/my son in his stroller to & from volunteering for the school literacy bags in the morning. Afternoon I rewarded myself w/getting my nails done emoticonHad an awesome dinner/playdate at my friend Lori's after school. She helped me cut J's for my daughters preschool and generously handed down some of her sons clothes, which I thoroughly appreciate. I feel so lucky to be her friend. Then took the kids to their tumbling class. Need to figure out how to squeeze ST in better, lol, but still a emoticonday I think.

Had a emoticontime w/dd and her class on their field trip @ Jane & Paul's farm. I felt truly lucky that all the girls I had were so good! We picked corn off the stalk, did the corn maze, went on a wagon ride, picked pumpkins and fed some animals. So I hope that counts as my cardio, lol. I learned a bunch of new things from the owners and loved getting to know the teacher and several students better. Going to do it again w/my other dd and her preschool class in a couple weeks, this will be more of a challenge b/c I'm bringing my 2year old ds too. Looking forward to dh getting back from TX. I'm so-o jealous that he gets to stay at a super nice hotel and have meals prepared for him, but I must admit I like(most of the time, lol) working @ home raising our family.

    I love Jane & Paul's farm!! They do a nice job for the kids. I used to work for a preschool that did field trips there every October. It was a lot of fun. I'm glad you had a great time with your DD and her class! I'm sure your other two children will have a ball there, even your 2 year old. Just think of all the cardio you'll get chasing him around. =D

Had a wonderful Wednesday. Went for a nice walk while running errands w/my buddies after dropping off my girls at school. So happy my daughter got into the free gymnastics class @ school. I feel she has the best public elementary school. They have emoticonenrichment programs in the morning before school & all you have to do is just drop them off. Did some grocery shopping this afternoon and got lots of healthy stuff. Stocked up on chicken breasts (the boneless, skinless kind were on sale) emoticonMiddle child still is having a hard time letting go of me in the morning when I drop her off in tears. Still heartbreaking, I wouldn't send her if she didn't have a emoticontime which is what she tells me after school. Hope to sleep better tonight. I was nervous I was going to oversleep and not get everyone ready in time this am that I barely slept last night. Planning on chillaxing after sparking, ST and putting the kids down for the night. How was your day emoticon? So excited dh and I are talking about going to Jamaica next year instead of Australia(couldn't use those darn frequent flier miles for the time I wanted to go, ughh!) Mom said she'd watch the kids, Yay! I still want to do Disney but since we're spending the $$ on Jamaica we'll probably have to wait another year emoticonDH's not a fan of parks so he's in no rush, but I thoroughly enjoy them w/the kiddos. Hope I don't regret it.

Had an awesome day, today. After dance I went shopping @ Corky's warehouse sale & got a emoticondeal on winter coats for the girls and a few dresses for them too. Went to a new park to meet up w/some friends later in the afternoon. It was so comfortable when the sun wasn't hiding behind the clouds. Since we got home late I just made dinner, gave the kids a bath and put them to bed. Now I'm enjoying some R&R. Haven't done much ST or cardio lately. I'm hoping to start back up w/my buddies tomorrow am.

    They all came shopping w/me. Both my girls are GG so they loved it. They can be particulare so I was glad they were w/me. My son on the other hand is a little wanderer so he made it a little more difficult.

    Great deal on the coats and dresses for the girls. Did they go shopping with you? I could never just buy for my DD - she was a tomboy, so no dresses at all and everything had to be personally picked by her...

It's another beautiful sunny day here. I'm watching my friends 2 girls today, My kids are loving their co and we all had a great time @ the park. They played, had a picnic and fed the animals and then did it again this afternoon @ a different park. I got great news, my sister was engaged yesterday. WooHoo! I'm so happy for her. Did good nutritionally until I got into the most delicious sugar cookies my SIL gave us yesterday. Going to go put my DS down for a nap, hopefully.

    Deb- I know right, the stone was in the package. The romantic proposed 10/10/10, I believe they started going out 08/08/08. Wonder if they'll get married 11/11/11, lol.
