Today is a good day!

Although I am sad that Tiger is gone, I am having a really good day. At work we are doing a weight loss challenge. Since I am trying to lose weight anyway I decided to join. Since starting on June 11, 2010 I have lose 4.6 lbs! This last week I lost 3 of those lbs. My percentage of weight lost is 2.8%, not bad in 3 weeks! I am so happy that I am making good progress and hope to soon be at my pre-pregnancy weight and then start heading towards my wedding weight. I hope to acheive both by the end of the summer.

Rest in Peace Tiger :(


Today we had to say goodbye to a member of our family. Tiger was a wonderful cat and we were able to love him for 7 years. He will be truly missed by us all, especially Tobey.

Jeff’s Father’s Day Present

So since Jeff decided that he wanted to buy tools and a ladder for Father’s Day, I decided that Catherine and I would do a craft for him.

This is what we did:




Here is what it looks like in the frame we got:


And with the card we made:

Look what I’ve been making!

I’ve been busy sewing up a storm!

I decided that paying $30 plus for a sleep sack was ridiculous and that I was going to make my own. Little did I know it wasn’t quite as easy as it looks.

I bought the material well over a month ago and started working on it that night.

I ran in to a few road blocks and gave up. Well Jeff has been nagging me lately that the sleep sack’s we have for Catherine that aren’t fleece are way too small. So again today I pulled the material out to give it another go.

I know have two of them finished and the last is all marked out it just needs to be put and sewn.

Here is one of them finished!

Please shoot me if I ever have twins!

I was a busy girl last night at work. I had two little babies, both about 1 month old. At the beginning of the night I was excited, I would get to snuggle some newborns and feed them and then they would sleep, repeat. That’s not at all what happened.

If one wasn’t crying, the other one was and they were often both crying at the same time. Since they were in the same room if I didn’t get the crying one out ASAP, the other would be up and crying. It made for a very long, tiring and frustrating night.

I always though it would be nice to have twins (mostly being able to get two kids with one pregnancy, since we all know I suck at being pregnant!). Now I have a totally different opinion. All you twin moms are my hero’s!

God help us if we ever do have twins or more!

Long Time No Blog

Ok, I’m back. It’s been far too long and I should really keep this updated. So I’m going to try to do better.

Catherine turned a year old on February 13 and I went back to work the very next day, so life have been a little bit busy.

I have also been exercising and eating more healthy in hopes to lose some of the baby weight. I am about 4 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and 16 lbs from my ultimate goal (wedding weight). I feel much better about myself and life in general.

I will leave you with a family picture that a photog friend of mine took.
