{Garmin VivoMoveHR Review! | Spoiler Alert: I Love It!}

Excuse my excited expression lol

I have been wanting to upgrade from my Fitbit Alta for a little while now. I still love it, but I wanted something a little more smart watchy.

{Losing Weight Is Hard | #WeightWatchers Update}

I honestly can't believe I'm about to post the pictures I'm going to post in this post (lol) but I feel like it's important to document. Especially at the beginning so I have something to look back on and remind myself that I don't want to go back to this space.
I have been employed for three months as of the 19th of this month, I have been on Weight Watchers about as long (thanks to that sale they had on Black Friday!). And ladies, it could not be going better!

{The Internet Is Forever}

I'm not sure how to write this post. It happened a week ago and I'm still seething from it. I don't know what I'm supposed to do anymore. But I am convinced that teenage girls are the worst kind of parenting nightmare I have ever encountered.

I would happily take bleeding nipples and diaper blow outs over the drama and BS that come with teenage girls any day.

{2018 Goals | Fitness And Life in General}

I am not one to make New Years resolutions. I don't stick to them. Ever. So I make New Years Goals. Things I can accomplish through the year. Nothing I need to get down on myself about not sticking to. No dieting that will only last a month or two and then be another thing failed. Of course some of goals do have to do with my weight loss (which is coming along nicely for the most part!).

Lets get started shall we?

{Santa Has Come and Gone | What I Got My 10yr old Techie!}

You could fit what I know about video games in the cartridge of a Nintendo game.

Yeah.

So buying for Owen is not that easy. Much like Gaige, he's interested in things I have no idea about. So when it comes time to buy for him, I pretty much go off of what he asks for a little bit of a youtube research on my own. D also helps me out a little with explaining what he's going to need for certain games, devices, ect.

I think we did pretty good this year though! He ended up with everything on his list.

{Santa Claus Is Coming To Town | What We Got our Outdoors-man 15yr Old}

I'm not going to lie folks, I had little do with shopping for Gaige this year. He is so hard to buy for, he kind of always has been. He's really just a different kind of kid. We've always said he has an old soul. Even as a toddler it was like he was a seventy year old in a three year old's body. He liked to be outside and up at the shop with my grandpa. Sure he played with toys and stuff but he would always choose to be outside rather than in, if he was given that choice. Which is fine.

But if you know me at all, you know that I am not an outdoorsy kind of girl lol. I'm what I like to call a city country girl. Sure I like to fish and camp. But I refuse to sleep on the ground or anywhere that I might need to pee outside. If I can't get up in the morning and shower, or shower before bed, I don't want to be there. Gaige is not that way...at all. He spends the majority of his time at the river a few blocks from our house. Between him and three of his friends, he has made little camping areas. Cleared out brush and logs (even hauling a few home to chop here) and has even built little lean-to's.

A couple weeks ago he comes in the living room and says mom do you have a skillet I can take to the river? And he walked away with my mini cast iron skillet (that's probably been used three times...cause who only cooks one egg around here?).

{Finally a Productive Weekend!}

I swear it feels like it's been a year since I got anything done around this house. But I seem to have gotten myself on a pretty good roll this weekend. No clue where the burst of energy came from.
But I'll take it just the same!

{The Lady at Work Hates Me| But I Don't Like Her Either So We're Even}

{Santa Claus is Coming to Town! | What I'm Getting My Teenage Daughter for Christmas?}

Why is it that the older kids get, the harder they are to buy for? Not only does it get harder to buy for them, but it gets so much more expensive. It's insane. I don't know how my grandparents did it to be honest.

But I think I have it narrowed down to some good stuff so far. I'm not even close to done Christmas shopping so I think some of this might change, but for the most part, this is what she's getting both under the tree and in her stocking. So here we go!

{Lets Take it from the Top! | Joining Weight Watchers Again}

If you follow me on any kind of social media then you already know this but, I joined weight watchers...yes again. I know what you're thinking, we've heard this before Kristin. What's different this time? Honestly, I couldn't tell you.

But I'll attempt it.
