Weigh in day

Maintenance is hard. I felt I had it down and then I gained 2 pounds this week. At least it wasn't really a surprise. Back to losing mode! (another pic for you, daddy)

Sunday afternoon and we were home!

Oh how we have missed our Lazy Sunday afternoons. Today was stake conference and we were home at 12! It was simply mahhhvelous!!! There was no nap taking, but there was a lot of couch sittin and non-moving. Now only 1 more Sunday of misery and general conference comes to save us!

I'm taking a nap tomorrow

We went riding again today. I rode Taylor's bike and my back and bum are feeling it. I could do this every day! The weather was so nice except for the freezing wind in the way back. 
We passed a model airplane field on the trail. Really? Yes, really. 
Utah lake was looking mighty green today. 

Lincoln and tank'n were striking poses at Glen's house so naturally I had to take picture. And this! This is what Jeebs did for me! I love it! Now onto the built in TV/ bench/shelves! Some day.

Dripping with girls (and boys)

The mooks and her lashes, I'm so jealous, but glad she got pretty lashes. Sometimes I can't resist putting mascara on her.
This is a rare picture of Ezra with actual clothes on. He was probably asking to play a video game.
And this is what my blood pressure does when my kids sit on me. I guess I should take them with me to my dr's appointments if I ever get lucky enough to have another baby. Maybe they could keep me calm enough to get a normal reading. Blagh I hate doctors and blood pressure and stupid, irrational fears that keep me stirred up inside.

My life on repeat...

Every day each room goes from this...
to this.
And this to this...

and this.
And laundry piles up and then gets put into sorters and looks a less like the devil that it is.Then repeat. Happy St. Patrick's day!

Jeebs' weight loss documented

Jeebs hasn't documented his weight loss so I thought I would do it for him. Because that's the kind of awesome wife I am. And if you believe that then I have some property to sell you. Anyway, he has lost 37 ish pounds depending on the day and time of day. He eats only 1800 calories a day and hasn't really changed much else. He does not exercise. He still eats hotdogs, pizza, hamburgers, white bread, white rice, white pasta- you get the idea. He just eats less of it. It really is all about the dang calories folks!! If only I had figured this out years ago I could have saved myself many years of insanity.
Jeebs and I a couple of weeks ago before church. We had time to kill, cuz ya know, church doesn't start until 1 freakin' 30!

This was taken in August of last year at Cagey's baptism. He started in September counting calories. It works folks. (He says he's gonna shave when he gets his jawline back)

A day off...

Apparently, a day off of school was also a day off of manners. As we drove around exploring the canyon, the girls explored their nose holes. Mookie was distressed at first yelling that "Taylor is picking out her boogers!" but then decided to join in.

(Also playing with their gum to show off just what good refined children they are)
We went to Cabella's because it's the best place to go and explore when it's a little too cold outside and you don't want to spend much money. We all know Cabella's is just the place you go to look at everything then you go home  and order it off of amazon or woot.
To finish the day Mooks decided to get Thomas stuck in my pitiful hair. Luckily, Tara was there to patiently dig it out of my hurrrr. I don't have much to spare these days.

This is what we're doing

Somehow we lost our mind and took the front off of Mookie's crib so she could transition to a big girl bed. She was up at 5:52 this morning. I think it's perfectly acceptable to sleep in a crib until you're 8, don't you?

I am also in the process of painting and rebuilding this chest of drawers. It is a piece of junk, jack! I have painted the top and just need to paint the sides, once I get the paint. Jeebs has taken out all the rails and insides. We are going to make it an entry table that holds baskets. I hope.
I finally bit the bullet and got a chandelier for over our bathtub in the master bath. I don't know if I love it as much as I paid for it, but I do like it. Why can't everything just be 30 bucks?
Right now, this afternoon at 2:40, we are doing this. Sitting around on the couch.
Using our electronics to entertain us. The weather is so nice outside, but a little cold. I am now an annoying person that hates to be cold. I can't take it. But, every time the sun comes out I ache for a yard and I can't wait to have a yard to sit out in and sun, naked.

Utah spring

We had good weather for 3 seconds and spent it at the park. We had lunch there and anxiety inducing playing on th playground. At least there weren't any LARPers there. Color us lucky!
