Whew! Where have I been??

I come to this blog everyday to check on my creative peeps, and I just realized that I haven't posted a thing in WEEKS on here....It's been crazy around here lately. Both my big boys are home from school, so the house is full....somedays I love it....somedays I want to go on an extended vacation ;)..... We took a last minute trip to the beach last weekend and had a great time...... I got to spend an entire afternoon on the beach by myself. By. Myself. No kids. No screaming. No "MOMMY"?????? It was fabulous. The girls loved it and had a fabulous time. I am still working out and watching what I eat.... I haven't weighed in about a week, but at that count my total weight loss was 9 pounds. Honestly, I would have thought I would have lost 20 pounds in these ALMOST TWO MONTHS, but it's coming off at a snail's pace..... I am running again thanks to a program from personalrunningtrainer.com. It has hokey music, but he keeps me on track. I'm starting week 4 tonight.... By the end of week 4 I will be running in 1 mile increments with a minute of walking in between. I am LOVING it........We started a new church here in Fairhope... We walked to church last Sunday, which is fabulous.... It's literally a block away. The girls LOVED the nursery and are starting summer preschool there on Monday (cue the hallelujah chorus here).....I've been doing some sewing for them and am going to take some orders for others next week. I'm not going to sew the entire time they're at preschool. I may just sit and stare at the walls some ;) Here are some random pictures from the last few weeks.....
Yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of the day I flew down to Guatemala to get Anne Pearce FOREVER!
Sassy Essie.... We should've named her Sassy.
Crazy Anne Pearce....We should've named her Crazy.

Lou I am so proud of you for stiking to your exercise and watching what you eat! Way to go girl. Slow and steady will pay off! I totally understand sitting and staring at the walls. How divine that would be! Love the new outfits too. Have a good weekend!

Love the pictures. And good for you on the weight loss and exercise program to take care of you. Also for taking time for you. Enjoy "staring at the walls" or what ever you find yourself doing. You deserve it!
Love the outfits, too. Glad you can find time to sew, wish I could find more time for it myself.
Take care! Kim
