So the boys are getting home tonight! Yahoo! I'm excited to see my two favorite guys and have them home with me once again. Here's Anthony on Monday right before leaving....I had a pretty pleasant week and Mols was exceptionally good. And I totally got tons done around the house like I wanted and did a few extra things too.
*Go shopping for the kiddos birthday party supplies and a clothes hamper for Molly
I did get all the things I need for the kids birthday party, but no clothes hamper for Mols. dang.
*Get in some GOOD sleep (please, Molly??)
Ok, so molly USE to sleep through the night like a good little girl. Recently though, not so much. What's up with that? *sigh* I slept worse this week than I normal do.
*Teach Molly to walk
Well, she's not walking by herself yet, but I can hold only one of her hands and she'll waddle next to me. Sweet, huh!?
*Get a tan
Negative. I was all excited about heading outside to relax with Mols in the sun and get a tan. Sadly, it was all rain, clouds and no sun.
*Visit our friend Jessie and her adorable daughter Maddie
Jessie and her gal Maddie came over and hung out with me on Tuesday. Then I met up with them again and went to lunch on Friday. They're pretty much my fav. :)
*Maybe visit a Mama who is due to have her baby on the 22nd? COME OUT BABY!! :)
YEAH!!!!! Baby Kara was born at 7 AM on Tuesday to my friends Mary and Luke. I went on Thursday and spent a good 5 hours visiting with them. Here's a pic of me and Mols with baby Kara.
*Paint the bathroom
Check! Bathroom was painted, towels and accessories were bought.....now only a few finishing touches like painting the ceiling, finishing the trim, getting the door back up, and putting in a new fan.
No, didn't get the chance to sit down and read my Cosmo. LOL
*Teach the dogs to patrol the perimeter of our property and put ammo in the gun (for all those crazies who might come around....I'll be ready!)
No crazies came around. Good thing too cause my doggies were right by my side all dang day and would have loved to have ripped a crazy to pieces. HAHA!
*Read blogs and make comments
Done and done!
*Loose a pound
I LOST 2 POUNDS! Nice, huh? It has definitely payed to eat my 3 meals a day without any snacking and to also watch my portion size. WAY TO GO ME! Aren't you proud? I'm truly astounded that I really lost 2 pounds in one week just by cutting things out of my diet and watching my portions. And that's weighing myself at the end of the day will a full belly. Now if only I can keep it up, isn't the first week the hardest? I did slip up once and ate Mc Donalds the day I went out shopping. But other than that I have stuck to my "no chips, no soda, no chocolate" rule. Though I know the no chocolate part of that rule will be the exception sometimes. HEHEHE
*Teach Molly to say "Papa"
Ok, so she says, "baba" which is close to Papa, right? :)
*Work on photos and other photo related projects
I printed and put up photos in the bathroom and on our one wall in the living room I've dubbed the collage wall. I also ordered one of my photos to be blown up and put on canvas. I put that up in the bathroom as well. I was SUPER STOKED to have done a photo shoot with Molly that I'd been wanting to do for awhile. Check it out if you haven't yet, it's the post right after this one. I was also excited when an old friend drove in for a visit and asked me to take some new photos for him.
*Paint Anthony's room a new shade of green
Heck yes! It might have taken me all week to finish, but it got done! I'm excited for my little man to see it when he gets home tonight! Isn't his little hunting lodge cute!? I also went and got more paint for Molly's room and touched up a few spots that needed fixing. I'm so dang handy! ;)
*Miss my hubby and son
Every minute of every day
It was nice to have more one on one time with Molly this past week, but I'm ready for my little man to come cuddle in my lap. :)
