The dress

This past weekend was my uncle's wedding. Lots of fun was had for sure! Jess and I got to get away for the night. Also, I got to wear my new dress. It was so comfy and I LOVE IT! Endless possibilities with this little black dress.

REALLY bummed I forgot Jesse's tie. But he still looked good. He wasn't named "Best Looking Guy" of the Class of 2007 for nothing:)

If you have been wondering how my pop venture is going. I would have to say I am doing well. I drank 32 oz. last week. Although we leave for a trip to Canada tonight(which I should be getting ready for) I probably won't do so well then. I will be doing lots of hiking and such though. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I will post some pictures of our Canada trip when I get back!

I Love Pop

Weight not an easy task! I was doing really good about running or walking every day, but things have changed. I watch another little girl besides our 2 and I am canning like crazy! So to try to further my weight loss I am making a BIG step. May seem real easy to some but, this is a struggle for me. CONFESSION: I LOVE POP! I probably drink more pop in a month than anyone should in their life. I drink 224 oz. or more of pop a WEEK! That is ridiculous. So I am made a little challenge for myself. I am going to try to drink 32 oz. or less a week. Like I said before, it may seem too easy. But it is only Monday (started yesterday) and am craving a 32 oz fountain Dr. Pepper so bad.

Another thing I am adding to my challenge list is not eating after 8pm. This can be difficult when my hubby gets home from work late and we are constantly going trying to get our house done! But, I am going to do! I took my weight and on October 18th I am going to weigh in again and see what/if I lost!

Wish me luck!

Light at the End of the Tunnel?

The new homestead is coming together. My best friend came over on Thursday to help me prime the nursery. Funny thing is I think we talked to much. I got more done in 2 hours than we did in 3. But, it was so nice just to have some time with no little ones to catch up with my bestest.

Things Accomplished this week:
  • Cabinets: FINISHED
  • Cabinet Doors: 1 more coat of polyurethane.
  • Drywall: ALL HUNG
  • 2 bedrooms: PRIMED
I would say we had a pretty productive week!

This weeks' projects are going to consist of:
  • Finishing Cabinet doors
  • Painting Nursery
  • Painting Girls' Rooms
For the nursery I am going with green walls, color of the ceiling is still up in the air. I was thinking maybe a lighter color of green.

The girls' room will be yellow walls, possibly an orange or pink ceiling. All of the colors not quite a pastel but nowhere near bright. PLEASE weigh in your opinions on my color selections.

Maybe there is a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel.

Options, Options, and hopefully the pics work

I have been doing some online "browsing" this morning to find the perfect outfit for some upcoming occasions. We have 4 weddings to attend this fall. This means I need to find a couple new dresses for me. Andi is going to 3 and Raelin to 2. This is a lovely excuse to spend money on cute dresses/outfits for them. Added bonus, getting to get Jess some nicer dress clothes. I would like us all to coordinate but not specifically match. I am thinking these are great opportunities to get some much need pictures for our new house!

These are some options for the girls. All of them are found at babyGAP and are a little pricier. I love love love though that I can get them in both of their sizes. The first I am not sold on due to the fact it is now FALL! (craziness, where did summer go?) The last 2 are very cute:) Red and black seem to be the colors this fall at GAP. I find them more for Christmas, but they are still cute! The 1st one comes in black or red. Thinking that would be cute to do flip flopping the color of the cardigans. Corny? I could just get different colored cardigans or leggings...endless possibilities. If you have time go HERE and tell me if you like some of the other options better. Every time I look at the 2nd one I like it more. They would look so adorable in them! The last one I really like for the October weddings. The girls could wear some cute tights and come brown fashionable boots? It reminds me of Taylor Swift...weird, probably.

I feel like these are some good options for me. 2 of the weddings will be more casual and the other 2 would be fancier. I am really thinking about purchasing all 3. They are all each under $30!

I can't get my pictures of my dresses I want to come up. I think I am going to get all 3 though. I don't buy stuff for myself that much, so I keep telling myself DON'T feel guilty. Hopefully once I get them I will be able to post some pics of them!

Let me know what you think!!
