Take it Off Thursday

Weight that is...
Some of you know that after I had Presley I went on a diet and lost about 60lbs. Well recently I went on a 2 month anti-diet and I have since gained about 10lbs of it back. I am miserable and I hate the way I feel. I love the way I feel when I get done exercising or how I feel when I choose a healthy meal over fast food but its just so hard sometimes. I am here for motivations and success stories if you have some. I am dedicating my Thursday to Take it Off Thursdays! On Thursday I will come here and post how my week went and maybe show a pic or two. I am hoping in doing this I will stay motivated and somehow reach my goal. I have about 73lbs to go to reach my goal. It will be extremely hard but I know I can do it.
Please feel free to join me on Thursday and share some motivation and how your week has gone!!!

Weekend Recap!

We had a great weekend, but it just wasn't long enough. Friday Kris' parents wanted to keep the boys and let them spend the night. So Kris and I dropped them off and headed to

for what you ask...? Well we are having Presley a Fairy Garden Theme for her birthday. I knew that Hobby Lobby would be having their spring stuff on sale so I wanted go check out what they had. I was like a kid in a candy store in there!!! I just Love that place! Anyways I bought all kind of great things for her 1st birthday party! ...And yes I know that her birthday is exactly 4 months away lol, but its all about planning lol.
I have also be checking online at Halo Heaven too because Kim at TomKatStudio was able to get Kate's fairy wings at a good price there! Every time I would check they would be out of stock. Well I looked on Friday night, guess what, they restocked!!! So I had to buy what I needed just incase they never restocked them again. So I am that much closer to get Presley's birthday together!!! Whoo Hoo!
Saturday it was storming here. Just a complete mess!!! So after we picked the boys up from K parents we went and got a little bit of groceries and headed home. I called my parents and asked if they and my SIL and kids wanted to come over for a dinner and a movie night. They of course said yes! So came over we ate and watched....

We went and seen this movie at the Theater Christmas Day and I loved it! I knew I would buy it! Although it is almost 3 hours long, the kids actually were pretty good! We had a great time and it was so nice just hanging out with my family.

Sunday my parents took Peyton and Presley to church. Kris got up and washed my car then we headed to town. We met up with my parents and SIL and had lunch at a local pizza place with the kids. After that we headed home for a few and then went to my parents and had a cookout. It was then time for my parents to go back to church, they took the two babies with them, Kris went home and gave our boys their baths and got them ready for bed, and me and Sil went shopping. SIL loves shopping for Pres since she only has boys, so Presley made out like a bandit!

So I now leave you with some pictures...

We have been needing a new car since we had Presley. The Honda just wasnt cutting it anymore. Plus the air didnt work. Georgia heat+No AC=Unhappy Family! & Kris' car only seats four and that is uncomfortable since it is a convertible.
I wasnt sure what I wanted. We talked about minivans and SUVs. We drove a couple different things and decided on a Ford Explorer with the 3rd Row seats. It seats 7 and it has air conditioning. Whatcha think?

Just one

I just want to win one of TomKatStudios great giveaways. This week she is giving one reader a $25 credit to DolceVitaMia We all know how much I love hairbows and headbands, huh! So this is a great giveaway that I WANT to win!!!

Another great giveaway this Monday morning is from Threekids,AMinivan,andALotofLove she is also giving away hair accessories. Hoping this is my week!!!! Bring on the luck!!!

Top 2 Tuesday!

Its that time again. Tuesday is here and the topic is Beauty Secrets!

Eeek this one is hard for me as I am sorta plain! but here goes

1. Redken Spray starch: I am a southern girl and I DONT like flat hair! I want my hair to have bounce and body lol!

2. Nivea Cream: My Sis in law told me about this one. Its cheap too. For those pesky rough elbows, apply this cream every night and you will be left feeling smooth! You can find this out the checkout at Walmart for like $1!!!

Yard Sale

Saturday my sister in law and I held a yard sale. It was a great day to do it! The weather was perfect and even got a little, well ALot, of sun. I was surprised the main things I sold was toys. Here is what I bought with the money (the same day lol) :)
Got Presleys new big girl carseat. She will still be rear facing until she is at least one if not longer. This carseat goes up to 40lbs rear facing and 65lbs forward facing. She has not outgrown her infant seat by weight, but she has reached the lenght limits. I love it. Its the Graco My Ride 65!

I also was able to get a baby gate that swings and locks for the top of our stairs. Presley hasn't started crawling yet but we are getting prepared.

We were also able to all go to Shoguns for dinner! Peyton NEVER eats, and I must say that he ate almost his entire plate! He has requested to go there for his birthday too lol. It wasnt as bad as I thought it was going to be since my brother and sister in law went with us, we had 3 boys and two babies. They actually behaved very well and the babies were great too.
We had a great Saturday!
