{This Is Where I Am #weightwatchers }

Today is weigh in day folks and I was pretty much dreading the scale this week. Even though I've been tracking and trying to watch my points, I did go over quite a bit some days. It was all my fault. Well, that and aunt Flo was in town and that bitch seems to be a bottomless pit. But still, I was tracking it all.

{A Walk Down Memory Lane- High School Edition}

I was sitting here thinking about how fast this school year has gone by when I realized that it has been 15 years since I graduated high school. I just don't even know what to do with that information. How has 15 years passed already? What the hell have I done in the last 15 years that would make me not realize that much time had passed? And then I remembered what I'd done, I'd had babies, gotten married, grown up. I've lost people I love and made new friends. So much has happened in those 15 years.

{High School Bound!}

What on earth? How do I have a high schooler?! I've been giving it a lot of thought and I've decided no one can get any older...including myself. It's really starting to freak me out! It's insane to believe that in four years I will be attending a high school graduation. I'm just not ready for this. I'm supposed to teach another human being how to be a productive member of society (as I sit here in my PJ pants and a t-shirt). In four years I'm going to push my kid out of the nest and into the world and hope to God they don't send her back lol. Ugh.

{So Long School Year!}

I'd like to say I'll miss you but I won't. I'm so looking forward to waking up in the morning when I feel the need to wake up. Doing things I want to do without a time restriction on when I need to be back. I can't wait to not have someone else's plans dictating what I do. It'll be amazing!

{ #weightwatchers & I Hate Being a Girl}

weight watchers update!

For those that don't follow me on Instagram (what are you even doing with your lives! Get over there!), I posted my weigh in results today! And I'm down three pounds!! I'm actually kind of shocked. I knew I'd gained weight because I was constipated, but I was also eating a ton and I just seemed to be a bottomless

{Not That Kind of Mom Blog}

You know what I'd like to know? When the hell did being a mom get so damn glamorous? I sit here wanting to find other mom blogs to read (partly to get my blog some more traffic and partly to find someone to relate to) and I swear I'm having the hardest time. I know I've bitched about this before. I'm just so annoyed by it.

I honestly feel like my blog has stayed pretty much the same over the years. I don't write about things for views. I write about what's happening in my life. I talk about how annoying my kids are. How my husband makes me want to rip out my hair right along side loving him to death.

{Birthday Fun! Dawn Edition}


Yep! It was Dawn's birthday Wednesday and we celebrated at Chili's. Her choice (I keep saying that because everyone assumes I chose it since I always wanted to eat there lol).

{ #weightwatchers Week 5}

What the hell is happening with my body right now?! Ugh! I feel like it's falling apart. No matter what I do, I gain back everything I lose in a matter of days. I literally gained 5lb in two weeks. That's right, the whole 5lb I lost, I gained back. I don't know if it's because I'm a little constipated (is that TMI?) or if it's because I'm eating the wrong things.

{14 Years Ago Today}


Look at that chubby baby! This is the oldest picture I have of Dawn. I think she was around five months here, but obviously I wouldn't know because that's not me holding her. I wasn't there.

{Pinterest Fail}

I don't know why I'm always so surprised when I go to make something I found on Pinterest and it ends up being a huge fail for me. I don't even know what I did wrong. I followed the instructions and the ingredients in the recipe. But did they turn out as pretty as the ones in the picture? No. No they did not.

This is what I was attempting to do.

{The Weekends Festivities}

Holy crap I actually got out of the house this weekend and did something that didn't involve grocery shopping! Is this real life?

Friday was my birthday! I am officially 33 years old. I just can't with that information right now. I woke up semi early so D and I went to an early movie! We saw The Boss (pretty funny). We had the whole theater to ourselves! That hasn't happened in a long time. I enjoyed it. We didn't have to be considerate of other people or feel dumb for laughing if other people didn't lol. Which I do if there's a big crowd in there. After the movie we got Sonic for lunch. I love Sonic. Then it was home.

{Get Your Kids on a Schedule!}

I have been going to the same pediatrician for years. It's the same one I had when I was a baby. I trust her. I love her. She knows the ins and outs of my family almost as well as I do. She got me through when Gaige had RSV and she got me through when Owen had Pneumonia (I spelled that right on my first try!). I trust her advice completely. That being said, she is not always available.

{Tree Killing Party!}

My grandparents have lived in their house since November of '89 and for that entire time there have been a ridiculous amount of trees in their yard. So many that as kids we could build forts in them lol. She was always protective of them and would get so mad if anyone even looked at them crooked. There was zero chance you would see anyone climbing those trees. Playing around them, yes, climbing or pulling leaves off, absolutely not.

{I Need a Mom-Cation}

I would call it a vacation but in reality all I need is a time out from being a mom. Easier said than done right?

I just want to curl up in a bed I don't have to make with a book and not worry about someone barging in 10 minutes later asking me for something.

I want to take a hot bath without someone barging in and either A. Needing to pee/poo or B. Wanting to ask me questions they could have easily asked their dad.

{He's Usually So Good With Gifts!}

D and I have been together 12 years next month. He has always, since we first got together, been very good at gifts. He has always given me either cash or jewelry or something I've said I wanted.

This year though, oh man.

{End of the Year Field Trip Day!}

Lord almighty why do I keep volunteering to go on the bus during field trips with this kid?! I hate it. It's worse than actually being at the place they choose to go. Sitting there with 50 yelling, bouncing, taking too damn loud 8yr olds is not a good time people! I do not recommend it!

Me, Owen, and a kid in our group.
