To be or not to be......

oh... How long of a week it has been. My poor little monster Ronan was sick on Thursday, really sick. And when monster is sick, everyone suffers. But even when he is sick he looks so dang cute, check out this sleeping devil,
I couldn't remove the cup from his hand even when he was asleep. He had this mondo death grip on it. That kid loves his milk. In fact, he loves milk so much that he gives himself insomnia because his calcium intake is much higher then his magnesium intake. Little fact you might not know, drinking to much milk can be bad for you if your not taking magnesium. We found a kids vitamin to fix that problem and the next day he took a 3 hour nap in the afternoon. Ah, bliss.

I find myself truly bless with beautiful kids, these adorable tow heads know how to melt mommy heart. I was making dinner for them when Ronan was sick and I turn around to find this staring back at me with there large eyes,

Then they did this,

And it was all down hill from there.

I burnt my arm on the rice cooker right after that. Jason says it looks like a hickey, but who gives someone a hickey on the inside of their arm by their elbow? No one I know, lol.

It looks a whole lot worse now, but it surprisingly doesn't hurt.

Halloween this year is going to be so much fun. Both the boys are old enough to have lots of fun and hopefully I wont fall on my face this year. lol, long story. I will post pictures of my cuties in their costumes in my next blog so you'll have to live with these tidbits till next time.

P.S Its my birthday next Saturday!

When life gives you lemons...

I've done it to myself again. Filled my weekend so full I don't feel like I've been able to rest. Probably because I haven't been able to rest. I did get some laundry done and coaxed my husband into doing the dishes, although I guess asking for help with the dishes is different from asking him to actually do the dishes. I'll never get it. Its because I'm a woman, isn't it?

Another big note from today's repertuar, I finally cleaned all the maternity clothes out of my closet. I know, right. Ronan is almost 17 months and I still have the fay clothes in the closet. Well, when you're overweight and want to hide that unsightly belly fat, you wear maternity clothes. But I don't need them anymore, so I got a box out and filled it with clothes. It kinda backfired on me though cause now I don't have anything to wear.
That's all I have left. A small handful of t-shirts and even fewer nice shirts. Anyone want to fund a trip to the thrift store? No? ok.
My box of lonely hangers waiting for me to fill them with new clothes. :( so sad.

Any who, check out this pumpkin I made,
Modeled by my husbands adorable fingers. :)
Life isn't all that bad though, check out my little bucket head.

I leave you with these words of wisdom

It takes courage to become happy—courage to remain true to one’s convictions, courage not to be defeated by one’s weaknesses and negativity, courage to take swift action to help those who are suffering.

Crazy is as crazy does...

If at any time in my life I would think of myself as crazy, it would be now. Why the hell would I schedule 5 photo shoots in one weekend? I have no idea!!! It was insane, but everything turned out awesome. I even got some really fun photos to share with you in a later blog. The one I do have to share for you today was the idea of my extremely prepared client (which is awesome) check this out,
How awesome is this? 

In other news, learned a really cool way to play rock, paper, scissors.

Funny stuff that it.

Well, on to editing palooza. See you all next week.

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. :)
