Spring needs to stop being lame. I think spring is dumb. It's a wanna be summer. All the nice look of sun, without the actual warmth.

This picture makes me laugh!
I am going to try to loose 5 pounds a month until I've wasted away into nothing... well, not really, but until the baby weight I acquired is gone. I'm doing yoga (it's a mother baby yoga video.. really cool!) and plan on going off of sugary treats until then... I starting the no sugar thing on April 1. So, is it bad that I'm like gorging on sugar right now? Probably. But, hey then I'll be sick of all the sugar that I'll need a break. That's what I'm telling myself.

Last night Caleb and I watched The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith... it's one I wouldn't recommend because it takes so long to get happy that the whole thing I sat there feeling really sad for those people in life who don't have much. I also realized how fortunate I am. I have a loving husband and a beautiful baby boy who are both in love with me. God takes care of our every need-- even when it seems like we aren't going to have enough money that month, something comes through, and we're fine. I am blessed. Then I started thinking of Caleb's sister who is a bit crazy, has a bunch of kids all from different men, and lets life just take her out. I am sad for her life choices, and I am even more sad for those children who desperately need to be protected and loved-- in a world where there is so much sadness. Yet, I can do nothing to help them in their situation. They are innocent and life from the start throws them no help. Where is God in all of this? I know He cares, yet why is it that I have so much love in my life, starting with my parents and moving onto friends and then to Caleb, and others have crappiness thrown at them from the beginning. It makes me sad. I know that's kind of a lot of deep stuff, but I couldn't sleep last night because I kept thinking of everyone who doesn't have a choice in their life right now... and how i have a beautiful little baby who got 4 showers, has more clothes than he can wear, a mommy and daddy who love each other, and he doesn't even know how lucky he is. I could go on and on, and I won't.

So, onto a completely different subject-- there really isn't a good transition, so I won't even try. Caleb and I finally finished volume 2 of Heroes! I actually enjoyed this season more that the first, because it had more layers to peel apart and figure out. Now, I have to find something else to watch. I have one more month of being alone almost every night out of the week. So, any suggestions of tv shows I can Netflix would be appreciated! :)

Well, I think I'm going to try to get to bed early tonight (last night I didn't get to bed until 2!). So, I should start heading that way.

Oh, one more thing. I am going to nanny again this fall. I am going to be working with a family in Eagle with 2 little girls ages 4 and 5 for 2 days a week. I'm really excited and think it should work great with our little guy too!

Alright, enough for now.

rainy day

How come it always seems like the day I'm going to start something, the world is against me? I had decided to go on a long walk with my baby in the front pack (thanks Em!) and my dog on her leash... well, low and behold, I woke up this morning and it was raining! I really want to get in shape for this summer. I mean, I don't have unreasonable expectation, I know it took me 9 months to put the weight on, but I would really like it to come off in like 4 or 5 at the most! So, maybe tomorrow I'll go on that walk!

What does it look like to adventure at home?

My adventures seem a little less that some and more that lots... I am blessed to live a life full of passion and love.
So, tonight I decided that I really wanted to make something yummy to eat... so, the fact that I don't have eggs didn't bother me. I mean, are eggs really something you NEED for making brownies- those are the yummy things I decided to make. Well, apparently they are something you NEED! I also decided that adding marsh mellows would be a tasty addition to those delicious chocolate treats. Well, don't add marsh mellows to your egg less brownies. trust me it still tastes good right now-being that they're still hot and chocolaty, but come tomorrow I'll have to chisel them out of my baking dish, for I'm sure they'll be quite hard.
Another thing I wanted to tell you, is that watching TV shows a season of two after they aired is the best way to go. We've been watching Hero's and it's fantastic. I'm loving being able to watch episode after episode. It's so great. I'm still in the start of the show, so don't tell me anything about it!! I have to say, it makes me happy on a couple of levels. First off, it has actors from my two favorite TV shows-- Gilmore Girls and Alias. It makes me think I'm watching the characters from those two shows save the world! Ha, if Rory could see Jess now. Maybe she would have dumped blond dude (can't remember his name, but yuck, I don't like him) and gone back to Jess. Anyways, I'm acting like they're real people!
OK, so that's probably enough for now. I'm sure I could go on and on about really important things, but right now I'm eating my egg less brownie and wishing Caleb would get home soon so that I could watch more Hero's... so, maybe next time you'll get something more interesting from me.
