My Fun Week. (PICS) BLC#18 WUB at the end

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Sunday I got to go out and shoot my husband's gun. I have only shot a gun once in my life and it was a bigger gun. This time it was a 40 cal handgun. I LOVED it and wish I'd have let my hubby buy me the one he wanted to. Haha. Monday the kids had school and the husband stayed home to get some stuff done for school that he starts May 19th. Kids were supposed to have Roller Derby practice but since we were supposed to get a snow storm they cancelled it. I was sad they didn't have practice because Jeremy usually works every Monday so he doesn't get the chance to see them roller skate.. but when we got back from running around there was wet snow on the ground so we thought we'd take the chance to make a snowman since it'll probably be our last chance for the season. The snow wasn't sticking well enough to make a snowman but made amazing snowballs.. so we had a snowball fight instead. Can I just mention that it was quite the workout??

Here is a picture of the kids at Roller Derby practice a couple weeks ago.. They love it.. and since Jeremy's schedule is changing for one week starting Monday, he will be there for their roller derby practice, Levi's tkd practice, and Levi's Spring Concert, which he would have missed otherwise.

I've spent most of the week going through things and getting our house back in order and cleaned. It is looking quite nice actually. Just wish I didn't have so many boxes that still need gone through! Spent yesterday babysitting and that was overwhelming. I had my two plus 3 others. One of which is a baby and was super crabby.. but I sucked it up and dealt with it because I'm her aunt and I love her anyways. Haha. I ended up being really frustrated when the night ended and instead of turning to food, I enjoyed relaxation time on the internet.
Here is a picture of the bunch I had. Love them to death even though they can drive me crazy. My two plus 3 of my nieces.

Today I went shopping at second hand stores with my mother-in-law and we got the kids all sorts of good stuff. Here is some interesting shoes Levi got. I've seen them before but didn't know they made them for kids!

Did I mention on Friday we leave for Clark, SD for a TKD tournament on Saturday? Excited to see my little man kick some butt and to get out of town with my little family for a couple days. We will come back on Sunday.

Down just over 2 pounds from last week
Spent time outside having a snowball fight, doing yardwork (raking all the leaves.. You'd think it was fall around here with all the leaves), and playing with the kids.
Goals for the week: Push water! (Still not doing the best with water intake)
Make healthier meals. (I've discovered lately my kids both LOVE corn and broccoli.. well I knew corn but who knew cooking broccoli would be all it takes? No cheese or toppings needed!)
Non-scale victories: Not drinking my calories. I used to love juices, chocolate milk, and the occasional alcohol. Now I just look at them as extra calories I don't need. I still may have them once in awhile but hardly ever.

    Thanks for sharing, love the pics and have an awesome time, we all need to get away and do something fun once in a while. Those are great goals, and You will do it. Congrats on the weight loss as well! Awesome find, I too didn't know they made that style of shoe for kids, I have heard they are comfortable, but they do look a bit weird :) lol.

    Have a great weekend.
