Back in October I made this hair clip board for the girls stuff. I saw a friend do it and thought I should make one. It took me awhile to get around to it but I finally did. All you do is Mod Podge that fabric onto the frame, then take ribbon and make whatever design you want. You don't have to have a back for it but I choose to have one. I think it helps keep the ribbons in place. I will have more post to come.

Wait for it to dry.

Well it has been a month sense we have sold our house and moved. Saying good bye was kind of bitter sweet. It was the first house Brian and I have owned. With our family growing tho it is time to move on to bigger and bright things. We will have so many memory's of that place. Like bring both girls home from the hospital. Followed by the sleepless night with kids. Meeting/making new friends in the ward. Playing games with those new friends. I will miss that house but I can't wait for what's a head. Good Bye old house

OK so I've been busy. I know it a new month but lets go back to February. So at the beginning of the month Emma got sick and passed it around to everyone else. No surprise their, always happens. Well for Channing it turned into RSV, she did pretty well considering. While I was sick I got a double ear infection and could hear for over a week. Sometimes I wish I still couldn't hear. Life has just been so crazy that I've been feeling a little down lately. I am how ever determined to turn that around. Thanks to some friends and family they helped me end the month off right.

All though life still isn't perfect I am going to try hard to make as perfect as possible. So with that in mind this week I've laid out some meals that I want to try and cook. Starting with tonight we are cooking mushroom cubed steak in the crock pot. I can't wait to try it. As far as the whole working out thing, I've decided that I'm still going to do it but if I don't lose weight it's OK cause I feel good and I feel skinny. So for now I'm here and alive and that is great. I hope that I'm ready for whatever comes my way. Now it's time to go and enjoy the nice weather we have.

The Before

Here is a picture of the before.

Here I am at lets say 155 cause I don't have scale and the only time I can use one is at my parents house. If I measured right the hip is 33 1/2 the waist is 40 1/2 . The plan is to lose any where from 30 to 40 pounds by the end of the year. Which will put me back at the weight I was when I met Brian. According to the wii fit I should weigh around 116. I don't know how true that is but whatever. So i'll try and keep you updated on how the progress is going. As for today I feel pretty skinny and it feels great.
