TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Horned Frogs, Carving Pumpkins and Puppies

This weekend was eventful to say the least.  I am going to do a recap by bullets, as I think that might be quicker.  

  • Saturday, the girls and I joined my family for a TCU game.  We stayed until half time because they pretty much stomped the opponent (score was 69 to 0).
  • I noticed walking steps is nothing now.  I used to be leery of stadium seating.  I guess when you are built like Humpty Dumpty you are afraid you might fall.  Stairs are no longer an issue.  Huge NSV.
  • I saw my sister and her husband for the first time since having the surgery and losing 112 pounds.
  • My crazy family decided to carve pumpkins.  My dad, who had watched some DIY special, decided to use a power drill to create polka dots in his pumpkin.  I think it was just an excuse to use the drill.
  • My dog gave birth last night to 7 little rat looking puppies.  I will post pictures later.  Right now, momma dog is sound asleep with her squealing brood.
  • We went to a hospital employee function last night.  Some people didn't even recognize me.  I love it when people look at me all confused and try to place me but just can't!  I guess I am becoming an attention whore.
I will leave you with tons of pictures from this weekend.  It never ceases to amaze me how I am a camera hog now.
