Happy July!

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

The past week has not been the most amazing for calories or exercise or sugar for that matter. I have been getting this nasty habit of getting a different box of ice cream bars when I go to the grocery store. Of course there are like 20 servings in each box. Must stop that habit, the sugar just makes you want more sugar. The humidity the last few days is so nasty. Which makes it hard to walk. I went for a walk with a friend and the dogs last night. At 6 pm and you just come home drenched like you had run 4 miles instead of walking 1.5 miles lol At least we are getting constant rain lately. In the past 24 hours we have gotten at like 1.5-2 inches of rain. Rain barrel is staying nice and topped off.

Sunday morning, Scott and I were eating breakfast together and Joel our cat jumps on the bistro table at the window outside with a half grown rabbit hanging from his mouth. Trying urgently to bring the rabbit in lol Scott closed the blinds as fast he could. When we opened them again he was on the table and rabbit was missing. I hope it was alive still and got away but I highly doubt it. Never seen him with a rabbit. One of our cats growing up he would kill rabbits almost the same size as him and leave them next my moms car lol Funny tho that cat knew that my pet rabbits were off limits. He would never even attempt to look at them as prey. Must have smelled completely different, who knows.

We didn't go shopping crazy yet for the new dude. I got some paint to try for his room that turned out to be way more yellow than green with the lighting in there. So I gotta go back and try again. My friend Mindy sent us our first baby accessory a Snugapuppy. So we started our collection. I probably will have a baby shower for gifts. I hate being the center of attention but if ppl wanna help me get what I need, sure why not. Right now I roam thru the baby sections completely clueless to what anything is. So friends and family are welcome to help. We did our facebook gender reveal pics.

Joel had to get in on it. He was in our wedding pics as well.

Have a good week everyone and a nice start to the month!

    Lots of baby powder!!! And I love the photos - you two are so cute!

    We see these great popsicles here, made with diced fruit and fruit juice - there were some spark recipes with things like that - might be worth trying instead of ice cream?

    Th humidity is horrible as is the heat. I don't enjoy being outside at all. We went from winter to summer. Ugh! The rain helps but not enough. I have been craving ice cream too.

    Joel is like my Maynard was. We fed Maynard well but he still liked to hunt and eventually he killed everything that walked through the yard. Frogs, birds, squirrels, snakes, and once he did the same thing to me with a bunny. I didn't notice he had a live bunny and he brought it into the house and killed it. He ate the heart out and left the rest in the hall. I almost puked. From then on I watched what he was doing before I let him in. He always wanted to bring his victims into the house and would show them to me. I have no idea why but we always thought he was saying, "See, I can bring in food too." Gross.

    Loved the pictures!! Joel is quite the ham. LOL.

    Now that my kids are out of diapers, it's amazing to me how temporary "baby stuff" is. People who want brand-new, matching baby-everything are wasting their money, in my opinion. There are guides that are helpful as to what you need. But do register, so you won't find yourself overwhelmed with having to buy everything yourself. And please let me know when the shower will be so I will have time to prepare something special for him. :D :D :D

    awww cute pics! Fighting the sugar bug is so hard! Maybe try some skinny cow ice cream bars instead? Lower in sugar and calories but still yummy!

    Great photos! We used the Consumer Reports Best Baby Products book for a good explanation of the features of a certain product (like car seats, or cribs, etc) and the recommended ones. I don't know if there's a new edition though.

    I know what you mean about the heat. I run every other day and walk the other day. The dog only goes on the first 7-10 minutes of the walk and I drop him off, he goes so hot and panting.
