Multi-Tasking Monday

I am starting my own theme for Mondays as I have so much to share... First, my vlog for Monday Mingle, hosted by Eighty MPH Mom. The questions this week were: Do you have siblings?  Did you want more or less siblings when you were growing up? What was your wedding song? Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day? Tell us something special about your spouse/partner Here are my answers: Then I need to give you my Mamavation update.  I am down another 2.3 lbs this week (which is absolutely amazing considering all the awesome food we had at Blissdom).  I have not been able to walk outdoors because there is 4 feet of snow on the ground but the hubby and I did a lot of unpacking/cleaning so I am assuming that is where I burnt off most of the calories.  I continue to drink ice … [Read more...]

Made for relationship

Today I listened to my friend Amy talk about friendship on her radio show.  Coming home from a weekend like this leads one to think about friendship, about connection, about how our Creator intended for us to be in relationship with others. Relationships that allow us to take off our grown up hats and put on our play time hats (or boas and beads as the case may be) Relationships that allow us to relax.  To lean back into the knowledge that we are accepted for who we are in this moment. Relationships that allow us to celebrate each others success without thought of competition or glory. Relationships that make our hearts smile and our spirit sing ~A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words~ Author Unknown Today … [Read more...]

Mamavation Monday

Last week, I had my friend Katie guest post about her campaign to be one of the mamavation moms and I am happy to report that she won!!!!! Congrats to her.  She really put in a lot of time and effort and I am very proud of her. But, back to my weight loss/get healthier journey: I have lost 2.6 lbs in the last week! I have walked everyday (even in the rain, I have a pretty umbrella) I am drinking water like it is fine wine! What I want to add this week: Add in a workout video at least twice a week (and do workout video when children are not home so that I do not get made fun of during double time on Tae Bo) I'm sensitive (ha!) Think I can do it?  We shall see! For more Mamavation motivation, check out Bookieboo.com. … [Read more...]

Where are you Christmas?

Last year, on Black Friday, Jared and Matt (OMGosh, look how much they've grown just since last year) were decorating our upstairs tree. This is what it looked like when they were finished (this is the tree they are allowed to decorate, hence the ornaments almost touching the floor- ack!) So, you ask, where is this year's tree? IT'S NOT UP!  You see we are moving in 12 days so the hubby mandated suggested that we just wait till we get to the new house to "drag out all the Christmas stuff" (that was a direct quote, blasphemous I tell you!) Where are you Christmas?  I need stockings, trees, ornaments, candles, Advent calendars and my nativity scene! 12 more days, 12 more days.
