You Capture: Joy

All week I assumed the assignment this week was “Fun”. I don’t know why. I didn’t bother rechecking the assignment. I had all sorts of ideas, especially with the Brewer game yesterday. So imagine my surprise when I checked Beth’s blog and saw that it’s “Joy”! Well, we found some joy at […]

Weigh-in Wednesday: Week 5

Initial weight: 124.0 Last week: 123.0 This week: 123.2 Change: +0.2

I think it has something to do with the numerous Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, mini Krackle bars, fancy-flavored Twizzlers, and peanut M&M’s that I ate yesterday at work as we tried to keep our morale up on our first day of […]

Random thoughts

So I’m laying here on the sofa, just thinking about some things. Here they are:

Dancing with the Stars *My boys like to watch this with me. I’m often jealous of (almost) every single friend of mine because they have at least one girl. But when my boys get excited about watching “American Idol” or […]

I Heart Faces: Reflection

I’ve used this picture before for a You Capture assignment, and I love it so much I decided to use it to enter another I Heart Faces photo challenge.

Wish me luck!

You Capture: Letters

I got too lazy last week and skipped the assignment. The theme was “rustic” and I was having a hard time coming up with possibilities. As we drove to Madison, we passed numerous rustic-looking barns and farmhouses (appropriate for the Dairy State I live in), but it’s hard to take pictures of […]

Weigh-in Wednesday: Week 4

Here we are again. It’s Wednesday, time to fess up. No, it’s really not that big of a deal, but whatever.

Initial weight: 124.0 Last week: 123.0 This week: 123.0

Yup. No change. I’m not terribly upset. I’ve had four really stressful days at work. I don’t normally work four days in […]

Madison Fun

We had tickets for the Badger Band spring concert last night, so Andy took yesterday and today off of work, and we made a mini-vacation out of it.

We left yesterday around 2:30, drove to the west side of Madison, checked into our hotel, then headed downtown to do some shopping before dinner and the […]

Weigh-in Wednesday

It’s Wednesday again, and it’s time to fess up.

Initial weight: 124.0 Last week: 123.2 This week: 123.0 Loss this week: -0.2 lbs

It’s not the biggest loss, but it’s just fine for me based on my eating habits this past week. Well, it was Easter, you know. And Easter means candy. […]

New photo contest

I’ve been spying on another blog called I Heart Faces, and I haven’t entered anything yet. Well, today is the day. They have an “amateur” category this week, so here’s my shot!

This was a difficult decision as to which picture to use, but I love Noah’s eyes in this one!

Head over […]

Easter at our house

We had a nice Easter today. I got up early to Shred, then had to keep the boys from coming downstairs too early! Once we allowed them to come down, they were excited to find their baskets of goodies.

Then they hunted for eggs in our living room. Note to self: it’s best to […]
