Just like daddy




My husband is a horse man. He loves working with them and his love for them has spilled over onto our boys. I took pictures of big mister on my husbands saddle and now I have taken them of luittle mister. I put them in a special arrangment and frame as a gift to my husband. Here are the pictures of little mister and when I finish the framing I'll take pics of both and

have show and tell. I did photoshop these to make them look old fashioned.

Weight loss class

As you may have noticed I haven't written about my class in the last couple weeks. As a recap, My last post 2 weeks ago I did not lose, well 1 week ago I was up .3lb. I was devastated. 2 weeks and no loss, I couldn't even write about it. I started looking at what I was or wasn't doing in the last 2weeks that was different from the weeks of results. FOOD LOG!!!!!! I did not do my food log, this is a simple thing but it stops me from taking those extra nibbles that can amount to an easy 200-300 calories per day. One pound is equal to 3500 calories, so if I go above my 1200-1300 calories per day I am obviously not going to lose. So last week I did my food log, I even had a date with my husband at a steak restruant and a baby shower with awesome choc. mocha cupcakes all in one day and I wrote it all down! YEAH!! I weighed in one day early and I am down 5 pounds! WOOHOO!!
So I cannot stress enough how important it is to do a food log. I have 8 weeks left and My goal is to lose another 20.1 pounds for a total of 30.6 lbs for this 12 week challenge. It will then put me at less than when I got married over 4 years ago.

I will be speratic in my posts the next week and a half as I am ever so excited to visit my sister and her new baby boy and help her with her darling daughter. Keep checking and please check in on me and challenge me to keep on my path of weight loss.
God Bless and have a great thursday!

Tuesday's to-do list!

I am preparing for a 10 day trip to my sister's. She had a new baby boy by c-section and already has a beautiful little girl that is almost 2 years old. I am going with my 2 boys to help her out for awhile so she can recover and heal properly. DW wil be taking us down (she is 4 1/2 hrs. away) and then coming home on sunday and coming back for us the following weekend. You may be wondering why I don't just take myself. It's Mother's day weekend and since the boy's are still young DW is my present source and I love presents. (I do love giving them too) Plus DW also wants to see our new nephew.
I have a huge garden and I wanted all my seed planted before I go so it doesn't get such a late start. So, last night we got the majority out and this morning I planted another 240 feet. The garden is planted, we have a total of 180 ft of sugar snap pea's, 180 ft of sweet pea's, 360 ft of sweet corn, 390 ft of green beans, 120ft of beets, 40 ft of spinach, 7 hills butternut squash and 5 hills of summer squash. At the end of may I will plant all my tomato plants and my pepper plants. My lettuce for some reason doesn't like my garden spot so I will be plant a large wooden box planter with my romaine lettuce. I look forward to my strawberry's this year. I am hoping for a good 40 quarts.

Tonight we are moving the railroad ties that adorn the parking area we have in front of our house which I hate completely. They will be replaced by 2 ft white picket fencing and we'll use the railroad ties for a playground area in the back yard under one of our huge maples. We bought tons of red cedar wood chips for the playground area and then the large toys won't ruin the grass and it will look very nice.

I have my laundry almost caught up so when I pack tomorrow it should be a breeze.

I have grocery shopped for my hubby while I am gone so he doesn't have to slave in the kitchen or settle for cereal.

This morning I was able to select my favorite photo's of Little Mister's one year old pics, they were so cute, he was in a full tuxedo with the cane and top hat. I will post them soon. This should be the end of my to-do for today. Have a great Tuesday! God bless,
