McFatty Monday..

Last week I went and met with the lady from Curves. Im sure this program is a GREAT fit for some people... one of them not being me. I felt awkward, and uncomfortable, and I nervously made small talk while eyeing the front door.

So, new plan 30 day shred round 2! I will once again lay my life in Jillian's hands and allow her to kick my butt verbally attack me mold and shape my body.

Jilly, BRING.IT.ON! But, be gentle, ok?

Today: 30 day shred level 1, 20 mins on the elliptical. (Done!)

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.

Dear Sweet Cheeks,

My happy baby boy! From the moment you wake up until the moment you close your eyes at night, you are ALL smiles. You smile and laugh and coo all day long. Never a care in the world! (Unless you want a bottle, then you let me know loud and clear!)

This past month has been a busy one. You have learned to pull up on the couch, my legs, your toys, anything within reach! Then you giggle and cackle when you stand on your own two feet. You make mama so proud! We have started letting you put yourself to sleep. I absolutely hate laying you in your crib without first rocking you to sleep, but this is better for you. You sleep better. You sleep longer. I love to go in at night and watch you sleep. You sleep on your stomach, like me. And you have tiny baby snores, like daddy. Except daddy's snores are not near as adorable as yours.

I wish I could freeze time in this moment. Everything in our lives is perfect. You are so full of awe and wonder. I love taking you to run errands with me. I love letting you sit on my lap when we go to restaurants. I love reading you books. I love when you lean over and give me slobbery baby kisses for no reason. I love being your mommy. I love watching you grow.

Sometimes when the room is quiet, and daddy and I are watching you, daddy leans over to me and whispers "We made that". We made YOU. Such a perfect little person. That's something I am sure I will be in awe of until my heart stops beating. You, my little man, are everything I ever wanted. I am so, so lucky you are here with me.

Love always,

Tomorrow I get to be QUEEN for the day

because it's my birthday! The big 2-6.

Mr B and I have decided to make one BIG purchase this year for both of our birthdays instead of individual presents. So in a couple of weeks THIS will be in our living room. (Or, something similar. We haven't decided 100% for sure yet)


On a random note: I have heard rave reviews over this lip gloss, so I am going to head to Sephora today(bummer, huh?) and pick some up!

Happy Friday, everyone! Have a great weekend!

Wishful Weds... Handbag!!

'I wish' .... I could afford this Balenciaga handbag without putting a dent in my pocketbook!

Large enough for baby toys, diapers & bottles.... sleek enough that no one would know the contents! :)

McFatty Monday.

I have been looking into different weight loss plans.

Gyms, Diets, all the new weight loss fads...

I've decided to join Curves. Curves is a weight loss center for women. They help you set up a diet and exercise plan that will work. Since I have a location about 4 miles from my house, and the monthy fee is only $34, I am going to give it a try!

My goal: To lose 15 lbs over the next 2 months. After that, I will set a new goal.

"Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut her up with cookies..."

Things I didn't know until I became "Mommy".

- Pee can shoot 10 feet across a room.

- Hair doesn't need to be washed more than once a week. (I like it to be, but not a necessity)

- "Sleeping in" can mean 5am.

- Yoga pants, t-shirts and flip flops are perfect every day wear.

- The difference between a SwaddleMe and a Swaddle blanket.

- Always take an extra shirt with you when going out in public. You never know what might happen.

- 6 hours of sleep at one time is reason to celebrate.

- Poop stains t-shirts.

- & so do prunes.

- DO NOT WASH THE (favorite) BLANKET when it's close to nap time.

- The sweetness in a baby hug and (slobbery) kiss.

- Sometimes all you need is a 2 hour walk in the sunshine.

- It is possible for someone (Sweet Cheeks) to scream for 7 hours non-stop.

- How much love my heart can hold.

What have you learned since becoming a Mommy?

If you have a moment today, please stop by A little pink in a world of camo. She is a 23 year old new mom who lost her husband on Sunday. He was a Marine fighting in Afganistan. If you are the praying type, please say a prayer for her.

& please, hug those close to you a little tighter today.

We are all beautiful.

Jessica Simpson has a new show called The Price Of Beauty. She goes around the world to see how other cultures define beauty.
What is beautiful?
How do you define beauty for yourself?

Wishful Weds... Lottery!!

'I wish' .... I could win the lottery REAL soon, and I would INVEST!

If I won the lottery, I would stash quite a bit of money away for my & Mr B's retirement, and Sweet Cheeks college fund.

Part 2 of this is, Would you keep working? Since I stay at home, I wouldn't change that. I wouldn't have to. I could have plenty of money in the bank and spend my days with Sweet Cheeks. (And Mr B!) Doesn't get much better. :) Mr B would probably keep working. He enjoys his job, and he's GREAT at it. Life would continue basically the same way it is now for us, with a more financial security.

I hate the big blue bin.

The big blue bin that holds all of the clothing that Sweet Cheeks has outgrown.

I hate it.

I hate adding monkey feet adorned clothing to the big blue bin. I hate adding tiny baby-sized socks. I hate that when I see the big blue bin it mocks me....

Sweet cheeks is growing up!

Sweet cheeks is going to walk! And go to school! And go on dates! And prom! And get married! And..... ( my heart just sped up typing this)

Shut up you stupid big blue bin.
