Have you seen my wagon?

I made a statement the other day that I've gotten so far off the Weight Watchers wagon, that I don't even know where the wagon is anymore. I can't really explain what happened; I don't know if I just got bored, complacent or what, but it can't go on. I haven't weighed in since 9.20, that's 6 weeks tomorrow. Unacceptable. But, I'm going in tomorrow no matter the outcome. I'm fully expecting to have gained about 15 pounds. Hopefully it won't be that bad, but I certainly won't be surprised if it is. It seems that when I'm off plan I start looking for things to eat that are "bad". It's like, "well, I've already screwed up, I might as well really go for it." Not the right mentality to have at all.

So, tomorrow is a brand new day. The first day on the next leg of my journey. Now, if my driver could bring my wagon 'round & have it waiting for me in the morning... that would be great!

ps.... I have Halloween pics that I hope to post tomorrow.

family pics from missouri

I'm such a slacker. We got back from Missouri last Friday & I'm just getting around to posting some pictures from our trip. It was kind of a spur of the moment trip, and only my Aunt Brenda knew that Jonathan & I were coming. It was a lot of fun surprising everyone. The last time we were there Jonathan was only 8 months old, so he's obviously changed ALOT! Everyone was quite taken with him; he's a charmer!

I didn't take very many pictures at all, and somehow managed to be there a week & not take a single picture of Jonathan with my grandmother or my aunt. How did that happen? We were with them most of the time. Grrr. Anyhoo...

I have some more pictures but they'll have to be in a separate post as Picasa will only let me upload 4 at a time. ;o/

I'll sign off for now, but I'll be back soon with another post. I have to tell y'all about the New Kids on the Block concert that Haley, Brandi & I went to last night. AMAZING!!!

Pun'kin patch

Ahhh, fall. My favorite season. I love when the weather starts turning cool again. Time to start thinking about Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving get-togethers and dare I say it.... Christmas!!! (69 days left!) Are you ready?

This past Monday was Columbus Day and, since Chris had the day off, we decided to head to the pumpkin patch at Washington Farms. Jonathan had a great time in the petting zoo and watching the pig races. The weather was great and I managed to get a few good pictures.
I still can't believe my baby is 2 years old. He had his 2 year well baby visit on Tuesday and he's as healthy as a horse. He weighed in at 27.5 pounds (50%) and he's 36" tall (90%), so he's tall and skinny. Which was no surprise to me as it's very difficult to find pants to fit the little stinker. He's right on target developmentally, which I'm thrilled about. I swear this kid never stops moving or talking. It's no wonder he sleeps an average of 13 hours a day (11 hrs/night & 2/hr nap). I'd be tired after all that too. One of these days I need to get some video of him talking & post it on here.

Anyhoo, here are a couple of pics from the pumpkin patch...

My parents are taking a trip up to Missouri this weekend to visit family and Jonathan & I decided to go with them. We haven't been up there since he was 8 months old and I know everyone will enjoy seeing him & how he's changed. We're going to be in the car for 12 hours (!!!) each way, so I'm trying to make sure I have some things to keep him occupied on the journey.

Well, I have a lot to do today to get ready for our trip. I need to have pretty much everything done today as I'm scrapping with the girls tomorrow. I'm hoping I can be at least a little productive. The last few times we've been I just haven't had much mojo. ;o/

Where has the time gone?

Today we had a party to celebrate Jonathan's 2nd birthday. Tomorrow is his actual birthday, but it still begs the question: "Where has the time gone?" It seems just yesterday he was a teeny little baby and we were bringing him home from the hospital. Somehow two years have passed and every day I feel so blessed to be his mother.

Right now he's totally into Monster Trucks, and generally anything with wheels. So, we decided to kind of theme his party around that. A couple of weeks ago my mom & I were checking out the bakery department at Wal-Mart & came across a "cupcake cake" that was decorated with toy cars & a monster truck. Well, that was all we needed to see & we decided to make a cake like that one. I have to say I was a bit intimidated by the whole idea; I had never decorated a cake before. Well, anything beyond icing & "Happy Birthday so & so". But, I think it turned out pretty cute. What do you think? I can tell you that I won't be starting a cake decorating business anytime ever in the near future. It's way too stressful for me. I'm very much a perfectionist when it comes to things like this & I was so afraid I was going to mess it up. In the end I was pleased with it though.

Jonathan really seemed to enjoy everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to him. He certainly loves to be the center of attention. ;o)

There are skads & skads of pictures to go through from today. Thank you, Laurel, for being today's designated photographer. I'm so grateful for my friends who are always willing to step in & take pictures so that I can really enjoy the day. Rebecca often fills that position, but, sadly, she's sickly this weekend & wasn't able to come today. You were missed! I hope you're feeling better!

Well, I'm done for now. I'll try and post some more pics over the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
