Kayla's Three

Today was Kayla's 3rd birthday. Boy do the years go fast! She was being silly in this picture but I like it the best-it shows her personality. Another great year as a Godmother-and more to come!

While Maria was here she went outside for a few minutes and of course the minute she walked out the door Josie started fussing. I used the opportunity to scoop her up and watch her cry. Im such a terrible person. I love pictures of crying babies. Here are her first crying pictures that Ive taken-but Im sure it wont be the last.

Cheater Cheater...

This is the newest addition to my neighborhood, isnt it lovely? And of course its directly across from my house.

Whats the cheater about? Well technically I took this picture on Friday-I got home to late to take a good picture last night. Im a stickler for rules so taking the picture 'not on the day' is cheating! Now that its happened for the first time this year, if it happens I wont feel so bad, lol.

DDR Hottest Party

Try not to notice that the carpet is on the top of this picture-lol I was too lazy to turn it over before I took the picture. Yesterday I borrowed Kim's Dance Dance Revolution and played it for a while. I needed a change from my Wii Fit (though I did use it earlier in the day). It was really nice to try something new, the 20min I played for went really quickly. Im going to play again to change things up.

Flannel Sheets

I love it when my bed is fresh, the blankets are pulled back and ready for me to climb in!

Oh the Torment!

Today has been a day full of temptation for me. Over and over I have opened the fridge/freezer to find something to eat. And the chocolate in there was tormenting me! Believe it or not...thats is not all the chocolate in my house! Thats just part of the chocolate thats in the freezer! Im trying so hard to wait to eat chocolate until I lose some more weight but I dont know if Im going to make it. This week is HELL for me! I guess I just need to work out more so that I can get to my goal faster right?

Silence is Golden

Tonight after the kids left I so desperately needed peace and quiet (how does she do it day in and day out?). My personal favorite way to enjoy silence is to go to B & I made a nice leisurely trip after dropping them off.

Today I ate chocolate pudding (doesnt count as chocolate-) It tasted so good I thought I would melt on the spot! So sad that I love the taste of chocolate that much...but boy was it good!

Matthew & Kayla

Tonight Matthew and I met Maria and her girls for dinner. These two LOVE each other so they were so happy to get to see each other. Here is one of their silly pictures.

This came in the mail today...its my application for graduation! HALLELUJAH! Im going to make it after all! The world may fall down around my ears...but Im going to graduate!!

Wednesday, February 18, 2009


Maria stopped by to pick up her car-and of course she stayed to visit and I got to play with the kids :) I thought this pose was too good to pass up. So cute how they are both looking at Josie-no directions either, they are both just in love with her, awww.

Next I need to finally get a shot of ME holding Josie!

I just had to laugh when I realized the irony of this-this is my word for the year "balance" balancing on top of the mess I need to be putting away! I guess I needed a reminder to be balanced again.

More Food

Ive had nothing but fast food for days, not good for my diet. So today Im back on track. I had chicken for lunch and salmon for dinner. And still no chocolate!

I think I need to do some research to see what it the most healthy fish I can eat, I just buy salmon cause I know I like it.

Craig Shoemaker

Last night, Brandon, Kim and I went to see Craig Shoemaker "The Love Master". It was funny, but I had heard most of the jokes either on XM or the last time we saw him so that was a bummer. Anyway-this picture is of Craig signing the shirt Kim bought on her back. I told Brandon that Im ready to not see him for a while. Its time to see other people for a while (okay that sounds like a break up talk! LMBO!). Mitch Fatel is coming in March and I cant wait for that! I love him.

Two Babies!

Today I took Maria and the kids to LA to stay with her aunt for the week. This is the first shot of the girls riding in my car together. Im sure its only the first of many times, but I wanted to snap a shot of the girls together. Kayla of course was being silly so she has no face :) It was fun to be the one to take them up there. Maria and I got to chat for the 2 hour drive (traffic was icky) and when we got there I stayed for a bit and played with the girls and visited with Maria and Chrissy.

Oh-and after putting two kids in my car, which is actually a roomy Matrix I can understand why people with only 2 kids would want a van! I was very uncomfortable with the girls in the side seats rather than just having Kayla and her in the middle (the safest seat). Basically what that means is I will be moving Kayla's carseat frequently. 'Cause if she is with me by herself I want her in the middle... SOMEday I will have my Highlander or something similar where I feel better about safety-since its bigger.

Welcome Josie Lynn

Josie Lynn is here. She is 6.4lbs (same as Kayla) and 19in long. I was standing there looking at Josie and she opened her eyes just in time for me to snap a picture.

Welcome to the world pretty girl!

Thursday, February 12, 2009


Today I left the house for some much needed girl time with Maria. I LOVE Kayla but it was nice to have a conversation without being interrupted (plus I have her now anyway :) ). I was so in a hurry to leave that I left out the chicken I had taken out to defrost. What a bummer! I now wasted all that chicken! Now what am I going to eat for dinner?

Christmas In February

Today I received Christmas presents...yes you heard me right, Christmas presents. These are from my Grandparents that we havent gotten together with for the holidays in a long time. My brother delivered them while I was out and about. Of course my favorite treat was the breast cancer awareness (PINK) kitchen timer :) I didnt have one, and I love pink of course! So yay for Christmas in February!

Day 6 of no chocolate!!

Yeah...Im a little OCD... So What!

This morning I opened my medicine cabinet and noticed something strange. The whole bottom shelf (and really almost everything in it) is white. And all the things that have color on one side and white on the other are naturally turned with the white sides facing out.

Once I noticed this I took the chapsticks out so that it was a completely white shelf (I know I know, I need help). But after a little while I went back and put them back...the shelf needed a splash of color right?

No wonder I cant get my house unpacked-I obsess about every single detail!

Rain Rain Go Away!

Today I had all planned what picture I was going to post for the day. That is right up until I realized the roof was leaking! Ugh what fun! I guess a few things to be thankful for-it wasnt causing any damage to anything but the carpet (it's in my scrap room so it could have been a disaster), I found it before morning, and it's not my house so I dont have to pay for the repairs.

Moving along-tomorrow will be better than today right?

Tonight I made dinner for my brother and I, salmon and corn for me; salmon, corn, bread, and salad for Brandon. After dinner Brandon was working more on my laptop (gotta love him!) and eating the M&Ms on the end table. Watching him eat them made me crave something sweet. And since I had just eaten I knew I really didnt need anything.

I got up and went looking through the cupboards for something I could eat. And the raisins were what I came up with. Though they arent necessarily my favorite snack they are sweet, and come in pre-portioned boxes which is an added plus. So while Brandon ate sweet sweet chocolate I ate raisins. Ive now made it through day 4 with no chocolate. Every day has gotten easier!

More Roxie...

My mom bought Roxie this nice plush bed this afternoon at Costco. As you can tell, she LOVES it. I swear she looks just like a baby curled up on it.

Looking at her I can believe how fast she has grown. She's up to 40lbs already, shes not going to be a small dog thats for sure!

No food today-but I did a good job eating healthy- Day 2/10 no chocolate!

Kayla was here again today, and as usual playing with "Monkey George" and today she included her babies. For some reason my bed is much better to put them to bed in than the baby bed I bought her, lol. This was shortly before nap time, her posing with her babies.

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Today Kayla and I both ate healthy. For lunch we had chicken salad, and snack for her was an orange and a banana for me. Go Me! Second day of eating healthy and working out!

Day 1-no chocolate

The Yogurt Journey

Today I realized, that a large part of why Im hurting/restless/not sleeping probably has to do with the fact that Im not doing anything during the day. So today I decided to work out using my Wii Fit. Of course after working out I was hungry so I grabbed a yogurt. I sat down to eat it while surfing the web, about half way through it I realized that I needed to snap a picture for my 365 and so I set it down next to me on the couch until I was finished-all the while my stomach was growling.

I got up and took a picture on the counter, as soon as I was done taking the picture I grabbed the yogurt to finish eating it and it went flying across the counter and all over the floor! So much for that healthy idea! Silly me I just cleaned it up instead of taking a picture of the mess on the floor-which would have made a much more interesting shot! There's my OCD for you...cant focus until its cleaned up.

Now I have to figure out what to eat instead....

Monday, February 2, 2009


Im sure everyone is going to get sick of seeing pictures of chicken on my blog. I eat a lot of chicken. This happens to be leftovers from KFC. BTW-I like the 'crispy' but only eat about 2 bites of it and throw the rest away...way too much grease!

TGI Friday's (Leftovers)

It's February-and I decided that this month Im going to have a theme. My theme for February is "food". Im not going to make myself do food every single day if something else is better. But I wanna use this to show myself what Im eating everyday. Maybe this will encourage me to eat more of a variety too.

Today I had TGI Friday's with Hilda-Jack Daniel's Shrimp and Steak yum!

On a side note-the server was a girl (Crystal) that I remembered from HS. I SWEAR I cant go out in public with Hilda without seeing some one from HS...odd but true.
