The One with Thursday Thoughts, Confessions, Updates, Etc.


Thursday, September 20, 2012

Just to warn you, this post is going to be very random! I always have lots of thoughts running through my head and this here blog is a great place to let them all out. It's like my own version of a Pensieve, if you will.

"Will ya hold still for one second, I'm trying to take your picture!"

"Nope. Sorry Charlie. I'ma wiggle my arms and legs until the cows come home!"

Halloween is only 41 days away! I've been pinning ideas left and right for Halloween decor, costumes, food, and such. I'm not throwing Fox another big birthday party like I did last year though - I'm still recovering from that! Maybe next year. And I feel like I'm letting myself down not constructing Fox or Jane a one-of-a-kind costume, but I just can't squeeze any more projects in. Instead, we purchased Fox a Buzz costume - I can't wait for him to try it on!

Maybe next year he can be a fox.

Still trying to figure out what Jane will be. And yes, I'm still having that recurring dream about trick-or-treating... 41 days!

There's an empty lot by our house that I just can't get enough of.

It's where we took the pictures of our family of three a couple hours before Jane was born. It's where we took some photos for Jane's newborn shoot below. I'm sure that won't be the last time we photograph there! It's so versatile - the weeds are always changing and the range of wildflowers turns over every other week. I love it.

I have a secret crush on Justin Beiber.

I guess it isn't such a secret anymore! I HAVE A CRUSH ON JUSTIN BEIBER! I wish I didn't. Really. It's embarrassing. But man oh man he's got a smooth voice! Pretty sure I could listen to "As Long as You Love Me" on repeat all day long and watch this video over and over. I don't particularly care for the long beginning and end, but the middle part with the actual song is off the chain. Did I just say that?
I wonder how Selena Gomez feels about this video, and all his other music videos for that matter.

2013 calendars are hot off the press!

I just finished printing them so now I need to cut them out and add them to my etsy shop! Getting an early start this year. 

Fox sure knows how to boost our self confidence. He grabs my belly which is one big flab of skin and exclaims, "Squishy! Squishy!" Or he grabs Chris' face and does the same thing. Thanks Fox, we're workin' on it...

Speaking of weight loss and what not, I only weigh myself on Saturdays. I've been keeping track of my weight loss on my Operation: Weight Loss post. On August 4th when I started my "diet" I weighed 165 pounds. As of Saturday September 15th I weighed 151.9 pounds. Which, if you open up your handy dandy calculator, is a difference of 13.1 pounds. It's only since I got the go ahead to exercise two weeks ago that I've really started watching what I eat and doing actual exercise. I rotate between workout videos and running and weight lifting and I'm finally seeing little results and feeling better about myself. I'm still super out of shape though - my goal is still 120 pounds by January 1st! Slow and steady wins the race!

My mother-in-law and Chris took Fox to Lacy Park the other day and picked a yellow rose (which is a no-no but apparently it just snapped off when Fox was trying to smell it... oops) and it's now housed in a bottle - an actual milk bottle that Fox drinks from, lol. Whatever works!

I love scary movies. I do I do I do. It all started when we used to watch X-Files as a family on Sunday nights. I'm soooo excited to go see House At The End of the Street tomorrow night.

I hope I don't get nightmares!

Why is it that food tastes so much better when it's cooked by someone else?

My mother-in-law made our dinner the past few days and it feels like we've been eating like kings!

Hello, I'd like to introduce you to my barnacle: a marine crustacean with an external shell, which attaches itself permanently to a variety of surfaces:

Aside from her not being a marine crustacean or having an external shell, the rest is true! She's attached to me permanently one way or another! My little barnacle :)

Jane says, "Goodnight ya'll!"
