Project 365 - Week 5

Project 365 button designed by

OK, We are already one month into this new year ... that is CRAZY!

Just the other day I was looking back at the 365's from last year and sat AMAZED at how much my girls have changed in the last year. It brought tears to my eyes to think about all that we have been through as a family. And, to think, I have it all in pictures!

LOVE that!

January 24 - I sat on the floor in Hattie's room to just get some candid shots. I turned the flash off and just started clicking. I love the colors in this one.

January 25 - Sophie prepared a little carpet picnic for me. She knows her mama well - french fries!

January 26 - Fun with Daddy!!! This one ...

... and this one were taken during bedtime story time. These girls sure do love their daddy!

January 27 - Sophie wanted to play, but I don't think the cat was really in the mood ...

January 28 - I have been drinking a TON of water. I think any of the weight I've lost has all come out in the bathroom, if ya know what I mean!

January 29 - We had some extra kiddies, so we turned the lights down and had a pajama movie night. I am STILL cleaning popcorn up! But they had a BLAST!!!

January 30 - Hattie and I did our homework together. I am so very proud of how far she has come!!

Thank you Sara for hosting! And, if you wanna play, it's never too late to join!

Tell me, how was YOUR week?

How Can I Resist Sisterhood?

I have a secret ... well, not really a "secret" secret ... more like something I have just not really shared.

More like an omission.

Yeah, that's it ... I have an omission.

(but, really, secret is such a sweeter, softer word. I mean "omission" sounds kinda evil. Don't ya think? Doesn't it sound like a lie of some sort? And, ya know, I've never meant to LIE about this, just haven't wanted to SHARE it. So, let's just stick with secret then, shall we?)

Ahem ...

I have a secret.

Since the first full week of this new year ... new DECADE ... I have been trying to lose weight.

I know, you're shocked right? Here is where you do one of two things. You either scratch your head and wonder why this all sounds so very familiar OR you roll your eyes, sigh and mumble under your breath "here we go again". If it's the latter, I need to tell you it's really quite OK to say it right out loud. It's nothing I haven't told myself.

I have said this before ... which is precisely why I have neglected telling you all (both of you) about this before now.

Because, really, how many times can I blog about "this is it!", "it's now or never" and "this time I am gonna DO this thing" and expect to be taken seriously? I mean, come ON now, how big of a ninnie can I make myself out to be on my OWN STINKIN BLOG?!?!?!?!?!

But, this morning, I made a little discovery.

I found a support group, if you will.

I have discovered The Sisterhood of The Shrinking Jeans.

Now, I beg of you, how can I resist a sisterhood?

SO, each Wednesday I will be weighing in (and stop right there if you think for one nanosecond that I am gonna tell you the actual number appearing on the scale!) and letting you know how I have done for the week. Good or bad, we are just gonna keep it real.

This week I lost 1.2 pounds (this is after I gained - and then re-lost - 2 lbs after my mexican dinner date with my man) for a grand total of 9.2 pounds total for the year.

It's not much by Biggest Loser standards, but it IS a loss ... and I will take it!

Also, it is NEVER too late to start, so head on over to The Sisterhood of The Shrinking Jeans and join us!!!

'Cause how can you resist a sisterhood?

Project 365 button designed by

Week 4 ... of 2010 ... pretty sure we were supposed to be livin' like the Jetsons by now.

Which would have it's ups and downs. I mean, really, who wants to have to check their hair and makeup just to answer the phone? But, on the other hand, I could REALLY use me a Rosie the Robot!

Anyhoo - I want to thank sweet Sara for hosting this shin dig. She is GREAT! You should totally go check her out ... and join us! It's never too late!

January 18 - C is For Cookie - This is what ya get when you leave two little girls alone with a bag of 'Nilla Wafers just long enough to move some laundry around.

January 19 - Loves Letters - Even on a play date, this girl will find the letters to play with.

January 20 - Little Chickadee - Hattie likes baths ... Hattie does NOT like getting OUT of the bath.

January 21 - Baby Love - Sophie has discovered all things baby doll. And she is HOOKED!

January 22 - Blue Eyed Girl - Do I need to say more?

January 23 - Drama Queen - Sophie likes books as much as she likes letters. Here she is reading to herself ... and obviously QUITE engrossed in the story!

So, tell me ... how was YOUR week?
