Oh so excited.....

Many wonderful things happened this week and I can't control my excitement!

Phoenix, my eldest son turned 4 on Thursday all though he wouldn't admit it till after his birthday party today. Have I mentioned how weird my children are? We had an awesome party for him today with all his friends. 
I let him pick the menu, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese and home made fries that were to die for. I added pizza for the adults just to give a little more variety and my mom brought an amazing chicken salad to round it all out.

The only problem with the menu was... well.... I couldn't eat any of it, so of course I did and now I feel really sick, but oh well, if you can't have a little fun every once and a while whats the point of dieting. I guess the point of my diet is to kill the bacteria in my gut, bacteria shmacteria. 

After my 4:30 wake up call, thank you Ronan, I stumbled upon the good old family scale, usually it taunts me, but this morning I said "what the Hector," and stepped right up on it. Amazingly enough I had lost a pound. I am now 11 pounds past my wedding weight, 26 pounds lost since February and 61 pounds from my heaviest point. I gave my self a pat on the back and said, "You done good pig, you done good."

After three people at phoenix's birthday party told me I should get some pants that fit, Jason convinced me that I should actually get some pants that fit. I wonder what made them think I needed new pants...ah, that's right... The saggy ass part. A hope, skip and jump later we were at JC Penny's the only place that I can buy pants that come in a long.

I grabbed the next size down in jean and went to try them on. I was skeptical that they would fit. I had convinced myself that my old pants were to big because I wore them a lot since they were the only pair that fit, so I stretched them out, but after I put on a size eleven and they were kinda lose, I called my ever present husband to fetch me a smaller size.

One leg at a time I pulled them on and then ... Zip... Buttoned them right up. How did this happen? I lost two pant sizes in one month but only lost 2 pounds, I guess I don't feel so bad anymore for having trouble with my diet.

So all in all, it was an amazing day, and I can't wait to see what will come of tomorrow. Here are some highlights from today's activities.

Home made fires in process

P.S. I was going to write some depressing blog about how I felt so under appreciated, but after the pants thing. I just want to smile. :)

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
