Happy New Year!

Yes, it's eleven days past New Year's Eve, but at least I'm blogging! We had a very uneventful New Year's Eve. I had to work all day (I'm just thankful to have a job!) and then we were supposed to go to a party that got we just lazed around watching movies. The boys did some party poppers and had fun playing with the confetti. The above picture was taken at about ten minutes until midnight, the boys both zonked out on my bed. I put Jake in his bed and woke up Camaron for the countdown. Then he was AWAKE so we watched tv until about 1:00. New Year's Day was another lazy day. I was able to escape and go to see the movie Australia with my friend Natalie. It was an excellent movie!

Speaking of excellent movies, last night Camaron and I went to the dollar theater to see Forever Strong. I wouldn't recommend it for younger kids but Cam and I both thought is was an outstanding movie and can't wait for it to come out on DVD so that we can watch it again!

If Only it Were Accurate

As promised, I am giving a Monday morning weight-loss update. I'm pretty sure I didn't really loose any weight (did good the first few days and then majorly blew the diet for the rest of the week), however, I used Wii-Fit scales instead of my neighbor's scales today, and apparently I am down 6 pounds. :) If only........

44 BY 40

This past Saturday I turned 39, which means I only have one more year until the big 40. Last night we were watching TV and there was a commercial with Billy Jean King on it. Cam asked if she was famous so I said that she was famous when I was his age - I even had a Billy Jean King tennis racquet! His response was - "well, that was 29 years ago!!!" The mid-life crisis was set in motion! :) This morning I got brave and weighed myself at my neighbor's house. It wasn't good. My new goal for the following year is to loose 44 pounds by the time I am 40! I have steadily gained 11 pounds a year over each of the past 4 years. It's time for those pounds to go. Every Monday morning I will weigh myself and post an update (just in case anyone cares). Any tips or motivation would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hangin' With the Girls

Two of my best friends from Lindon,
Natalie and Julie, came to have a sleep-over last night! We went out for ice cream and stayed up way too late playing games. This morning we all went out for breakfast, thanks to a well-timed gift certificate we happened to get yesterday. :) It was so fun to spend time with them!! I miss all my friends "up North" so much! (You'd never guess these pictures were self-taken with a cell-phone!) Since they left we've pretty much just hung out being lazy (again). This time I have an excuse - it's my birthday - and according to my friend R'lene I'm over the hill. :)

Reveal Yourself!

2. Next, copy and paste these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

If you're just a "blog stalker" that I don't know very well, please use this as an excuse to comment and say hello!

Lazy Day

Today, the 24th of July, is Pioneer Day, a Utah State Holiday. We celebrated by being LAZY! :) I still did my 2 1/2 mile walk with a friend bright and early but it went downhill from there. We had a BBQ for lunch with our friends the Tuckers. They have a grill and a fenced-in back yard with GRASS so we like to invite ourselves over! :) The boys had fun playing on the water slide and Elvis enjoyed running around without being tied to anything. We've pretty much just been LAZY for the rest of the day. If I get a spurt of energy maybe I'll take the boys to Monroe (15 minutes away) to see the fireworks tonight.

Along with being Pioneer Day, today is my sister Marri's birthday! She is at a girl's camp with her daughter Rachael and doesn't have phone service so don't bother trying to call her. :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARRI!

Up A Tree

My brother Don & his family were recently in Utah on a "vacation" from their home in Texas. On the 12th the boys and I were able to go to Lehi for Don's daughter Alyssa's birthday party. Of course I forgot my camera, but Don just sent me some pictures! Jacob decided to climb a tree and my sis, his Auntie Noreen, decided to join him! Don't they look so cute in their Thomas the Tank Engine hats?? Camaron pretty much pouted on a blanket....... It was good to be able to spend a few hours with my "fam." The middle picture is of Don with his girls Alyssa and Anna.
