hello friends!  :-)
yes I've absent lately but I'm attempting to come back!

Today: snow, SnOw, SNOW!  
yes my friends, it's even STILL snowing!

Now I like snow as much as the next (or not, but whatever)
but I've shoveled my driveway 3 times already - yes - I said t.h.r.e.e.
So, I'm officially over the snow.

On the positive, we had a snow day so I got to keep both boys home and we chilled out together.
School is already closed for tomorrow so it's another family day in our near future!

The bads: This week is Logan's "star of the week" at school. 
There are special things that go on every day of the week and now he's missing 2 of those days.
Poor kid is actually SAD that he is having snow days!

Another thing.... I haven't mentioned my attempt at dieting lately because, well lets be honest, ya'll have heard me talk about it enough but never seen any changes!
This time - ok first look to the right side bar and note my 2010 updated goals..... *lose 5 pounds*
friends... I lost not only 5 pounds but 5 + another 7 pounds!  That's right - TWELVE pounds!
yep yep, I'm doing a little happy dance right now!

But, tonight... um yeah, I found a stash of mini reese's peanut butter cups, yum.....
a few of those won't kill me right?

So - happy snow day to my fellow Northeastern Kansans

One day I'll post some pictures of my NYE and other recent photos... problem is that I upgraded my phone to an iPhone (I have the greatest mom, thanks!) so now I have a phone that is smarter than me, and I no longer know how to get photos from my phone to my computer.

Can anyone help me with that?

Way to go on 12 lbs! Reese's miniatures are my biggest downfall and what I craved when pregnant with mini#2...thing is that was 5 1/2 yrs ago and I still have the craving. LOL! That's a lot of snow you have! Ice here and it's rough. Can't even play in it. My kids have to make up snow days on Saturdays, too...

We are in a winter storm right now yikes...even more snow to add to the 46 inches or so we've already received since november..but thanks for the comment and good to see you back. I tend to vanish for a week or two then come back. Lately I've been busy and simply just forgot. Hope you enjoy your week.. and good luck with the snow and driveway ;)

Yay for the 12lbs.

And what a bummer about the kiddo's special week. Maybe the teacher will give him a re-do if you suggest it?

That's about how Meg's luck went. She finally made Middle-Schooler of the week (a few years ago) and just so happened the school ended up having a bunch of activities going on and she didn't get any extra privileges.

Being from Syracuse... I can emphathize with the snow... no help with the phone though.

Kara Lynn said...

That is a ton of snow!! We have none, and I don't think I have ever had a snow day. I'm a little jealous! Usually by now we'd have like four feet. Eat a snow ball for me!!!

I am so ready for our snow to be gonzo!
