You Lost How Much??/ Randomness



Men can really get on my nerves.  Seriously.  My husband can get in his head that he wants to drop 5 pounds and magically it just falls off of him WHILE he is eating his chicken McNuggets.  I, on the other hand, could eat no more than 1200 calories in a day and exercise non-stop until Jesus comes back and still not lose a pound.  What is up with that???

Josh let me know that he lost nearly 5 pounds over a course of 3 days. The way he did it you ask?  His response-  "I just started drinking water instead of diet Mountain Dew."  I mean REALLY!?!?

So, I had this awesome chart for my working out.  It included running, work-out dvd's, etc.  Friday night, while in the pits of HELL Wal-Mart, I totally messed up my baby toe.  It got caught under the wheel of the shopping cart.  I keep saying "It's broken", mainly because that sounds more interesting, but whatever I did HURTS!  It's extremely hard to wear a shoe, so running is out for a few days.  Guess bike riding will have to do for now.  I rode 4.5 miles yesterday in 26 minutes.  It felt fantastic!  The weather was perfect.

We spent the weekend in Oklahoma City.  Josh had to work a little Saturday night and most of the day Sunday.  I really enjoy going along with him on some of his work trips even if it's only for a night or two.  I love lounging around the hotel and catching up on TV shows that I don't normally get to watch.  When I'm home, I constantly feel like I need to be doing something productive.  So, it's almost like a mini vacation for me!  We spent Sunday afternoon shopping at the outlet mall in Oklahoma City.  I love that place.  I got 2 shirts from Banana Republic and a pair of sunglasses for $22!  Score!!!  It was a great quick trip!

My sweet angel had his 4 month check-up yesterday.  He is growing up!  15 pounds 2 1/2 ounces and 26 inches long!  Weight is in the 50-75th percentile and height is in the 75-90th percentile!  The Doctor also said I can start giving him rice cereal.  He is really starting to notice our food and is grabbing at our plates!  I'm excited to start feeding him and see his reactions to different baby foods!  We are also on the look-out for more signs/symptoms of diabetes in our little man.  His daddy is a juvenile diabetic, and we have noticed a few jittery moments when Eli is really hungry.  His whole body will shake and nothing calms him until he gets his bottle.  I pray it is nothing.  Please pray too?  I know he will be just fine!

Lastly, did I mention that I got a TREE!?  Contain your excitement, people :) I don't think I have ever been more excited about a tree in my life!!!  I have been begging our neighborhood landscapers for a tree or maybe even more colorful landscaping and low and behold we got a beautiful maple tree!  My sister told me I need to get out more when I excitedly told her about it ;)  I think it makes our place look a little more cozy :)  I'm weird, I know.

Ouch mama. Hope your toe feels better - the pics are adorable and the tree excitement. I love it. I swear I get more excited about getting house stuff than I do my own stuff. We ordered a Cleveland Pear last year and I was so excited - it was planted and looks AWESOME this year. YAY for trees.
