Is this a real diet?

So this family has all be on the stress diet! Between going through surgery yesterday and buying and selling houses - we're basket cases around here!

I'm thinking of submitting it to a website that has weight loss success stories!

Maybe I'll win all-you-can-eat Ben and Jerry's for a year!

Speaking of that...I'm craving some sausage links and since I just got my gall bladder out yesterday I'm suppose to stay on a low-fat diet for at least a week!


The bachelor.

I must admit...I'm watching The Bachelor. This shit is the bomb!! I don't know quite yet if I like Jake or if he's too proper and cheesy. He seems a little fake at times and I don't know if it's him or the way the show has portrayed him.

Also, it's funny to see these stupid girls try to get his attention. Some of them are "there for the right reasons" and a few of them are just there to get their minute of fame on television.

I loved how the one hot girl ended up slutting around with one of the producers and got her ass kicked off the show. What a slut. Seriously?

Getting old.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm on my way to mid-thirties or the fact that I just had a birthday. Either way...I'm starting to feel old!

I know I need to start taking better care of myself. Including exercising more and even looking for a good anti aging product.

I think the years of sun exposure without using sunscreen have really taken a toll on my face and aside from the the blood vessels next to the bottom of my nose I'm starting to get wrinkles too!

Is this it?

So a few months back when Emmy was 15 months I thought she had completely weaned. She wouldn't take nor did she want babas.

With my surgery happening I was told that I had to wait 24 hours after surgery and in that time I needed to pump and dump because the milk would have anesthetic meds in it.

Of course, I forgot the breast pump had been moved to a friend's house and so I haven't been able to do that.

Emmy has been having a much better time not nursing than I thought...

Maybe the time has come?

Would it work for me?

These days my acne has been under control. I'm hoping that I've turned the corner and maybe in future years my pimple days will be history!

I saw a good proactiv review and everything I've seen makes the product seem pretty effective. Just over the years you've seen it on television and our local mall even has a kiosk that sells the solution.

At least it's reassuring to know if I do have a flare up there are good options aside from Oxy that typically burned the top layer of my skin off!

I'm up!

Yesterday was my surgery and I started getting a little scared a few hours before it thinking of the what ifs.

I'm so not ready to leave this world and I can't wait to see my two girls get older and grow up to be amazing adults.

There's just so much out there that I haven't done. I want to travel more and I want to spend more time with my family and friends.

Glad to know yesterday wasn't my time to leave...

I'm always on the search for health tips and our ideas for weight loss. I recently came across

It's an interesting website because it talks about the infamous protein powders and the benefits of using them.

My friend, Lydia, adds the protein powders to banana shakes. She freezes the bananas and uses a little bit of milk. Then she puts in a scoop of protein powder. The shake taste delicious and it's healthy too!

Cleaning out!

Right now we're thinking ahead. We're trying not to stock up on food and Margot's putting aside cans of food that we have to eat on a daily basis so that we don't have to move with them.

Tonight we're eating fajitas, a box of rice, and a can of beans.

I'm guessing when we're at the point of moving we'll be toting all of our sauces and nothing more!

Losing weight.

Over the past few months I've lost around twenty five pounds! I haven't done it the healthy way though and I'm afraid that after I have my gall bladder surgery it might come right back.

I've started looking at diet pill reviews in hopes to find the perfect combination of healthy eating, a diet pill, and exercise.

Of course, that would mean that I have to be proactive and motivated...

What happened to our weekend?

I swear it went by so fast!

Saturday I couldn't even tell you what we did. Then yesterday Graem went to a birthday party and we went over to J&L's for dinner and MORE birthday cake.

This morning Emmy has speech and OT coming to the house so I'm hoping she'll be exhausted enough to take a nice, long nap this afternoon.

Wishful thinking?

Pop goes the pimple.

I've always had awful skin. When I was pregnant my skin was at it's best and I don't think I had a pimple the whole nine months!

Now that I'm in my thirties I don't get big outbreaks but I have the constant blackheads on my nose.

I should probably look at blackhead removal treatment to get rid of them forever!

Typically, I pick at them and within a few days they appear again.


Tomorrow's the big day!

So I'm starting to get a little bit nervous. Tomorrow's the day of my surgery. I've stocked up on trashy television and trashy magazines.

I plan on hooking up with my vicodin and hanging out on the couch.

Good times.

Kitchen remodel!

Margot is so excited about remodeling another house! I haven't seen her this excited in a long time! She's has plans in her head and we're both gnawing at the bit to get into our new house.

One idea was to make a kitchen bar and have some modern stools so that the kids could sit down and eat breakfast.

Another option was to open up the kitchen and have the stove face the dining room.


Not quite yet.

We have a new house under contract and we have 9 days to sell our house. Holy shit, you're saying?


We have an awesome agent and the house looks absolutely PERFECT.

Here's hoping that the perfect family buys our house!
