I have a slight dilemma. I am on a mission. What mission is that you ask? Fat loss. Yes I did say FAT LOSS! I have created a new blog but I don't think I have the courage to put it out there yet. Why? For many reasons but mostly I am embarrassed because I have let my body go. I realize it didn't happen overnight and it isn't because I sit around and eat all day, I know that I have 2 children who helped my body become the way it is, but I can't blame this on them, I am responsible. I can't believe I have let myself get so fat and if I publicly announce this then everyone knows. So what to do what to do?
Let me know what you think. Should I post this new blog or leave it for my own knowledge and accountability?


Have you read the Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney? They are Katie's favorite. She pretty much has them memorized and we read them every day. I love the rhyming in the books.
The other night Katie and I were reading this particular book, "Llama Llama Red Pajama". I leave parts of the story out so the kids can fill in the blank. We started "Llama Llama....I waited for Katie to fill in the blank and she looked at me and said "Don't you know?" I laughed and laughed. My daughter has got a fantastic personality.

101 in 1001

I have a lot to update on my 101 project. Since my last 101 update I have completed 6 more goals, 2 very soon and working on several others.

  • #38: Have family scripture study daily for 1 month then continue. I am happy to say we have been doing this for about 3 months now. I don't think we have missed a night. :)
  • #42: No Fast Food for 1 month. January was the month for me. It was really nice to cook dinner at home and to try and eat healthy. We also saved a lot of money not eating out. I never realized how much money we spent on fast food until we didn't eat any. My kiddos have asked for it less to which means they are hopefully eating better as well.
  • #61: Volunteer at Tyler's school once a week for 2 months. This was a lot of fun! I was glad to be able to spend some time with Tyler and see what his class is like and to see him interact with his friends. I am planning on doing this again as soon as I figure out my schedule.
  • #66: Plan a 6 month dinner calendar. I completed this back in January. It has been nice to know what we are having for dinner. If it isn't something we want to eat that night we just rotate nights. It is also really nice to go grocery shopping once a week for 2 week. I have to brag, this past week I only spent $40 for 2 weeks worth of groceries. We aren't eating bean and noodles either. A lot of food we have in food storage which really helps but even so, it was $39.64.
  • #80: Try Zumba. I did this just after Christmas. Brad bought me the Wii game. It is really hard. I would really like to go to a class at the gym and try but I haven't found the time yet. I am going to try and do this next week.
  • #95: Write 101 love notes for Brad. I completed this one on Feb 14th just in time for Valentine's Day. I saw something really cute in blog world and decided I could do it myself. I got a jar made some cute decor for the outside, put a ribbon on it and wrote out 101 things I love about Brad. I gave it to him at lunch and he was so sweet to say it was the best present he has ever gotten. I loved the look on his face when he read some of the love notes. It was a lot of fun and I realized how much more I love him today than the day we got married. He is a pretty amazing guy.
So that is a small catch up on my 101 list.
Has anyone else decided to do one. I would love to read what you are up to.

St Patrick's Day

This is the time I have decorated for St Patrick's Day and it was kind of fun. I am really starting to get into this crafting stuff. Brad asked me why I didn't do this years ago and I said because the blogging world didn't exist. I admit I am a blog stalker of all crafts. Some I can do and others I only wish I knew how. It is all really trial and error for me. I have already started on my Easter decor and getting ready for spring.

So here is our mantle for St Patrick's Day. Enjoy!
