This Week

*Has been wet, hot, and humid. Which in turn means we have all been hyper, crabby, and tired. Yucky. Hoping for some sunshine in the coming days.

*My favorite seven year old will be turning eight tomorrow. Every year, every month, every week, every day that we get to spend with Jacob is a huge blessing. Here's praying for many more (days, weeks, months and hopefully years).

*Amy turns 12 weeks old tomorrow. She is such a sweetheart and the easiest (knock on wood) baby ever. We've been blessed with these four little souls and even within the midst of chaos I thank God for them every single day.

*I've started a weight loss journey on Lose It. It will at least keep me accountable for what I eat and when I exercise. I upped the calorie intake I'm allowed since I am breastfeeding and I'm not so much dieting as I am just trying to eat better portion sizes. I considered joining Weight Watchers here in town but the meetings/weigh in aren't at the ideal time so maybe doing something like this at home will be just as effective?

*I'm loving your comments about the library/reading on the previous post. I knew there were some book lovers out there!

*Speaking of books, I have an advanced review copy of my mom's book (Coupon Crazy) in my hands and am about 1/4 the way through it. Can't wait to review and share it with you all...it's an awesome book (even if I am a bit biased!).  


  1. Happy Birthday to Jacob!!! :) Hope he has a fabulous day as special as he is!!

  2. Happy Birthday, Jacob! How many cards did Jacob get?

    It's time for a new picture of Amy.


  3. Carol- Once his mail slows down I'm going to post a photo of him with all his cards. I have to bet that it's close to 100 though! And thank you for your card and special surprise for him and Becca and Joe! They loved it!! (And pictures of Amy will be up this week!)
