Weighing In! #3

Well, it’s been a crazy span of time in the weight loss department since my last weight in.  Which, I can’t believe was 16 days ago!! Since that last post, I have been real busy with my family. Took a week off from ‘dieting and exercise’ during the school vacation week, where we spent 3 days…

My List: Pixar Movie Ranking

A ranking of the current 13 movies created by Pixar. This topic came up in conversation a few days ago. As I listened to opinions on which Pixar film ranked where, I argued some cause the person was obviously out of their ever loving mind, but I was also thinking that this would be a…

#BostonStrong – Cape Cod Trip

We left for Cape Cod Monday afternoon. It all started off pretty great. Got to The Cape in record timing. The girls were angels the whole ride down. The sun was shining, and the sky looked like it was painted by Raphael with those perfect wispy clouds. Our hotel for this visit was the Irish…

Weighing In! #2

*So excited* I have dropped 3 lbs since my last blog weigh in!  YES!! Down 7lbs total!  This is with the big Easter dinner, a few get togethers for drinks, and some days I couldn’t make it to the gym in between!  Cleaning the yard all day Sunday helped a great deal though.  I took that as my gym day, for…

Arrested Development is Back!

Woke up to great TV news! Arrested Development finally got a date out on when the new shows will finally air! I am totally psyched for May 26! I have missed The Bluth’s something terrible. And second to Seinfeld, Arrested Development is my most quoted show. Hope these 15 episodes are something amazing… And they…

Poof! Everyone’s a Zombie!

Well, I had a great start to my day. Got out of the house at a decent time with both children dressed, coiffed, and happily fed. My hair came out great, jussayin. Only got stuck on 93S for 25 minutes after dropping the girls off at their respective schools. The line at Starbucks was two…
