Happy Birthday #1

8 years today - Wow. You amaze me, your kind and generous nature, the way you are always polite, how smart you are, and even the way you bounce off the walls.

Hittin' the sauce

Don't worry, it's only chocolate!

Before and After

Because it's been a year and I haven't done this in a while, I thought I'd post My Virtual Model to show the (very slow) weight loss. I'm down a total of 20lbs and 10+" combined between waist and hips. Bootcamp starts again next week so hopefully it will keep moving in the right direction. That'd be down, in case you weren't sure! LOL

To the left is me a year ago.

To the right is me now (that's as close as I could get to the hair. LOL)

Frankly, I think both of these girls look better than me but I'm on my way...

Because Sara told me too

I'm updating. But I really got nothin' to say. It's been a crazy week. We went and saw houses, quite a few. We picked a house, we placed an offer on house, we negotiated, the offer was accepted, then our financing fell through 45 minutes later. We are approved for 95% financing and we still have a week to remove subjects, but the likelihood of us coming up with *cough* a LOT of money in a week is unlikely. Our mortgage broker is trying though so you never know. It brought a lot of weird issues to the forefront for me about family though. I'm not going to go into them here bcause I'm trying to suck it up and move on. :-)

In other news I had a great time at Sara and Nate's last week for her spa party, and I think I even made a new friend. We had so much fun and I didn't get home until very late. There are all sorts of other things I could say about that night but one of my best memories is of Sara and Becka doubled over and howling at something I said. THe sad thing is I don't really remember what witty thing I was saying. I'm sure it was great though! :-) I do remember the word plump. And yes, I'm sure I was describing myself. Good times, good times. I'd share pictures but then I'd have to kill you. :-D

Days go by...

and I never seem to catch up. But that's ok. It's summer (or it will be soon, I'm sure. I see you, Sun, desperately trying to poke out from behind those clouds. You can do it!) and days go by randomly and fast. Our oldest is still in school, unlike most of our friends kids but that's ok too. That was a choice we made and for us, a good one. He loves his school and so do we. What a difference a year makes.

And--because I've shown a lot of #2 and #3 lately (let's face it, I'm home with them all day so they get more photo ops!)--here's #1

Happy Canada Day!
