As Summer Comes to an End...

We had a great summer...crazy how fast it went by. As it is coming to an end so many changes have taken place.
Brittany is working and is all signed up for college. She is learning how exciting independence can be and how much hard work it takes to have it.
Laine is preparing for another football season after recovering from his collar bone injury.
We were informed Logan is advancing to the 4yr old classroom at the end of this month...which has caught me totally off guard. But he has been doing great so I shouldn't of been so surprised.
Me and Tim celebrated our 7th anniversary last month...and I must say our relationship is stronger than ever because we took the time to invest in it over the last 7 months. I am glad we did because in the next 6 months there is going to be a lot of changes taking place for not just us...but the entire family!

Perfection Connection..

I have been stressing over everything these days. I want Brittany to have the perfect Prom night! I want to find the perfect Graduation Invitations! I want to plan the best Grad Party ever! I want to plan the best week vacation when laine and my family are here! Why can't I settle for simple and easy. I guess I have waited so long for Britt's graduation, her prom, and to have my whole family around me. That eventhough I know I can not plan the perfect events - I know they wil be perfect anyway...because of who will be there. I have no one to impress but my little girl, and I guess that is where the pressure comes from...I want her to have the most perfect memories!
Mommies have it hard!

Feeling Guilty...It has been too long!

Well it has been quite some time since I posted...and I must tell you life has been busy!

So here is my readers digest version of what has taken place...

Well there was a whole lot of Drama but we decided our lives have no room for it anymore...had a Girls Weekend that got me outta a over-worked funk...Dishwasher takes a dump...trip to Arizona to spend time with my family, that I haven't seen in over a year! - It F'n rocked!....Work craziness....economic kick in the butt. But life is good and I haven't been happier! Sometimes all we need is a break from life, a few drinks...a whole lotta compasion...and a willingness not to let life get ya down! is a trip!

A Relaxing Saturday...

It was such a wonderful day, the sun was shining and we were restless.

Me & Logan woke up and had french toast and decided we wanted to get out of the house. So we went outside and washed Logan's car and then went for a walk. Then we went to the Grand Opening of the Sweet Bay grocery store opening just down the highway. Logan thought it was great because they were playing music and he was given a balloon..he also loved the free samples all over the store. We had to hurry home for lunch. But after lunch we went to the park and played until Daddy came home. Then came nap time..ahh

When Logan woke up from his nap, Daddy was getting ready to leave for the night to go to Tampa and Brittany had just got home from a Brittany, Logan and I watched Madagascar2 and then went to Chick fila for our Dinner(naughty I know). Logan ate his whole kids meal and behaved so he got to play on the slide. Logan met this 8 yr old girls who he had a blast with! Even Sissy had to get a piece of the action by being the He didn't even fight leaving the play area(wow). After our tummies were full we decided to stop by the grocery store and get popcorn and ice cream for Movie night. So now we are sitting back watching movies and I feel like I made the right choice..Laundry definitely could wait until tomorrow, the house didn't need to be immaculate, and I had the best day ever just hanging with my kids!

Happiness is Spreading....

Today I was cleaning my house and I had this overwhelming peace come over me. I know it is hard to believe that scrubbing floors could make you feel that way, but it did. Seriously though, I felt like life is so much better for us then I realize sometimes.

I scrubbed my counters and told myself, wow I was able to afford granite counter tops..10 years ago that wouldn't have been important. I was thankful that I had 8 loads of laundry to do, because that told me my kids were well clothed. It felt good to clean my appliances because I knew they all worked and were dependable. I dusted off the big screen TV, and couldn't help but ask, did we really need that. I cleaned my pantry and I was happy because I had enough food in there to cause such a clutter in the first place. I was happy to pick up toys in the living room, because it reminded me that my child is not lacking as much as I sometimes tell myself.

The coolest part was...15 minutes later I sat down and read my sister-in-law's blog only to find out...she too was sharing in the happiness in her own way too!

Becoming the New Me!

When me and Tim decided to take our weight loss more seriously, I was amazed by the results. Not just the results to my body but to my mind also. I noticed myself being happier and more confident, but most of all my kids have seen Mom emerge again as a new woman. Someone who is ready again to take charge of her life and set limits. I am thankful to Tim's parents for leading by example and motivating us to finally do what needed to be done years ago.

I reached my weight loss goal today..and I am amazed at myself! But now that I know what I am capable of I have decided to shoot for another 10 lbs..because it no longer seems out of reach for me. I feel empowered! I know when I set my mind to something I can make it happen, so I am not sure why I ever doubted myself. Tim and the kids did the Happy Dance with me in the living room when I finally fit into all my business wear from 7 years ago!

Yeah Me!

My Little Dude Turned 3!

It has been quite the crazy ride raising Logan...but I can't believe he is already 3 years old! It didn't hit me right away because his official party is not until the 11th. I watch him describe his day at daycare...I hear him using his imagination...I watch him problem solve and ride his bike...I watch him dress himself and undress...I watch him hit a baseball that is pitched...and I just sit there in aww. What happened to my baby boy?
I feel like everyone misses out on so much because they don't see him everyday. I guess that is something that we, his family, is only meant to see and cherish. I am going to invest in a nice camera for my computer and easy software for my family to not only can Logan talk to them but they can see his personality. He can be quite the devil...but he has a way to make up for those times with just a quirky smile or a "I wuv you Mommy". Even Daddy can only stay mad for only seconds.

Here are some picture from a few of the moments I have cherished..
