It’s been a while since I just shared some fun randoms with you…I really need to do that more often. What do you think? Want a random fun post here and there? Today is really a compilation from the past 2 months…I told you it’s been a while since I shared.
I met up with Aimee and Liz on two different fun days. Aimee and I went to a Maple Syrup Festival and spent the day laughing our butts off…I heart that girl!!! Then Liz came for a day, and we did coffee and shopping a few weeks ago…she is seriously the cutest and so much fun to hang out with. I am so blessed to have them as such great friends.
It was time for a cupboard cleaning. My husband was tired of trying to find the salt and pepper under all this mess. I think I need to bake more…or just buy less. Please tell me I’m not alone in this madness.
Summer is coming way too quickly, and I decided to give this diet a try. Turns out I’m not good with sticking with this one either, although I did lose 8 pounds in 2 weeks. Too bad I didn’t stay out of the sweets…I’m sure I gained it all back. So…I’m trying round 2 starting now.
Even though I do post tons of desserts here, this is a normal dinner around our house. Veggie Salad and baked Tilapia…YUM!!!!!
Exercise at it’s finest. I actually don’t mind running…when it’s outside. I do go to the gym and use the treadmills when it’s raining or cold, but I would much rather run outside. I use landmarks to encourage myself to go a little farther each day. I try to always go 10 steps past the point where I stopped running from the day before. I walk some, then run again and try to beat another point.
We shopped at World Market for the very first time. Well, I shopped and my hubby wandered with me. I found all sorts of crazy things like chocolate with bacon and Happy Hippo cakes. But I ended up with a cute cupcake plate and a bowl and whisk.
My hubby is the best. This year for my birthday (yes, I’m still talking about it because it’s birthday month still…no one else knows that though) we went out to dinner and then got frozen yogurt. Can you tell which bowl is mine
Then the kids bought me these fun nail polishes and perfume. The best though…my hubby bought cupcakes because he didn’t want me to bake my own this year. That cheesecake cake was pretty yummy for being from Walmart.
Has anyone else tried these new Skinny Cow chocolates? I have to say that I am usually a die hard peanut butter and chocolate girl, but those caramel ones are my favorites for sure.
Last month I went to the little man’s mom and son dinner at school. He was so cute to watch as they sang a song about how they learn from watching their moms. Total tear jerker. Why do they grow so fast?
Then my daughter and I went for coffee and some dress shopping. It’s getting harder and harder to find modest clothes for young ladies. I don’t like that she is growing up so fast. Where is my little baby girl?
This month I tried two new things…this Maybelline lip gloss is not bad. For $3 I would buy more “shades”.
Finally trying to get some sort of schedule going with blogging…it’s a start for now. My husband keeps trying to get me to use charts and things on the computer, but I like paper and pen so much better. So far so good at sticking to it…I’m just slightly behind on all the little things I added to it. But it does keep me on task a little bit better. Now when I sit down at the computer, I have a better plan of what needs done.
The proudest moment in a parent’s life is to have your child accept Christ as their Savior. This little guy trusted Christ about 2 years ago in Junior Church. Lately he had been asking to be baptized, so this past Sunday my hubby had the great honor of baptizing him. He was so excited to share this with our church and couldn’t wait to get in. Although I did talk him out of a cannon ball. Thank you older brother for that one.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your families
