Wonderful Weekend!

My weekend started with Alex walking in the door with these! Made my day. :)

We celebrated my nephew, Pryce's 13th birthday on Friday evening. My sister cooked an amazing meal. I think I could eat homemade potato salad until I'm sick. I didn't....but I could. I haven't given an update on my weight loss/calorie counting in a long time. I've lost 12 pounds and would love to lose 12 more. I was out of town quite a bit and fell off the calorie counting wagon. I need to start back. It really helps to keep up with what you're putting in. I feel much better in my clothes and I'm really only one size away from where I want to be.

My MIL cooked a delicious meal after church on Sunday. We had lots of fresh veggies which I could totally live on during the summer. SO GOOD! We headed to the pool after lunch. My Mom pointed out how big Amelia is getting when she saw this picture. She's allowed to eat potato chips now and LOVES them. I have to hide them at home or that's all she would want to eat. She had chips and lemonade for her snack at the pool. She was in heaven. It was obvious that girlfriend needed a nap after some time in the pool. I think that's the grouchiest I've seen her in a long time. She said, "no" and "I don't like it" about a thousand times, which I'm not going to lie - I can't stand to hear her say those words. She needed a nap and kept getting in trouble. It's better to remove her from the situation at that point - otherwise we're just setting her up to get in trouble over and over. I finally took her inside and we watched a movie until time to leave. :)

She fell asleep on the way home and didn't wake up until 8pm (her usual bedtime). She was up for dinner, took a bath, and then it was time to go back to bed. She woke up a little after 9 this morning. She laid in bed talking off and on for about 30 minutes, so I finally went in to see what she was doing. This is how I found her. I love going in to get her in the mornings. She's so happy to see me and ready to start the day!

Monday is our day to stay in our pajamas and just recover from the weekend. I'm doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen, and playing with my girl. It's going to be a great week!

Love to all,

Sounds like such a fun weekend! And I don't blame Amelia for loving chips. Thats all I would eat, too, if I could! Hope you're enjoying your relaxing day at home!

Bless her heart. Swimming makes kids so tired!! I wish I could sleep that long sometimes! :)

PS-Chips and lemonade are a PERFECT snack!

What a great weekend!! She looks SO big, it is just crazy. And the "no's" and "I don't like that?" UGGGHHH... it only gets worse as they get older. WE really have to work on the negative opinions over here some days. It is weird how they go from being the sweet, happygolucky baby to all of the sudden miss opinionated bossypants. Good days and bad days. Still vastly more good than bad, too!

I hope you enjoyed your Monday!! I need a day like that BADLY right now!
