Scattered Thoughts

A lot has been on my mind the past few days, and I really don't know why all the sudden I feel like I can't stay focused on anything?!

1. I am very nervous about doing classroom observations at Childress Elem. tomorrow (kindergarten) ~ maybe b/c I know very few people at this school. Being nervous about this I think has caused a lot of what is going on in my rambling head. Pray for me! :)

2. The paint and flooring for the girls bathroom has been staring at us since we bought it like in October. It has to be done by Montana's party!

3. Our new blinds for our living, dining & kitchen came in Mon., but they were wrong! Thank goodness it was the woman's fault at the store, so that they will reorder them again. Now, we have to go to WF this weekend & take the wrong one's back to the store. How much longer till I will have my blinds?

4. I never get all of what I need done! I am ready for it to stay light longer. I am tired of getting home @ dark everyday. I want to enjoy some time outside with my family!! And we desperately need to buy a new grill~ ours is on the last leg!

5. We have lived in our house 2 yrs in May. Why does the office still look like it did 2 yrs ago? Will it ever look different?

6. I need to register for the TeXes Exam, so that I will be all ready to take an internship for the 2009-10 school year.

Ok, enough of my ramblings, but now you see why I have a hard time concentrating on any one thing and why I feel stretched from A-Z. Just pray that tomorrow will be a good day at the Elem. Maybe then, I can be a more focused person. Happy Hump Day!!

Valentine's Party & Night Out!

Well, we had a great weekend!! Friday, the girls had a Valentine's party @ daycare and got tons of candy that has been hid! They were on a sugar high Friday night!!

This is the first year since we've had kids that we have done anything on Valentine's Day without kids, and it was fun! We went to the Longhorn Ranch Steakhouse @ Crowell with the Eddins and an old high school friend, Lacy and her husband Ty. It was great food and lots of reminising about "back when..." Kyle and Belinda had only seen The Smiths @ my kids birthday parties so neither of them knew each other well, but by the end of the night I felt like we all had been friends forever! Thanks for a Great time guys! (And I see Belinda already beat me to this post! LOL) Our next outing is planned for the guys to do some predator hunting! :)

My weight on Friday excited me this week! I weighed 2 weeks ago for my inital weight, and then last week I had gained 3 lbs which I knew was from muscle building, but I was still heartbroken a little. On Friday, I had lost 5 lbs., so now I am 2 lbs. under what I started! YEAH!! That made me feel so good! After what I ate for Valentines, I better be ready to burn some fat tomorrow!!

I did not get a pic of Levi and I that I liked so excuse the fact that I just have our friends on here, and Belinda don't kill me for posting this pic of you! :) Hope everyone has a great week!

It's about time!

Well, these past few weeks a lot has been happening and pictures have just been storing on my camera, so today I will finally post them. Please ignore the fact that it is 3:30 in the morning. I woke up for my nightly bathroom trip, and decided I was blogging! By the time I get the girls to sleep, I am out, so this seems to be the only time I have.

I haven't reported to the blogging world about me joining the gym so now I will. I joined F3 in Childress at the end of January and go there every afternoon after work (I have missed a couple). It makes me feel better about myself, and I feel like clothes are not so "snug" anymore! I love it! I have not measured yet, but I need to so that I can see what I loose in inches. Mainly because I have went from not excersing at all to doing weights, cardio, & abs 5x a week! I will keep you updated~ my goal is 20 lbs by May 1st~ and I have done great so far!

The girls are growing so quickly! Autumn has hit the funnies stage ever!! She literally RUNS everywhere she goes, and now the fight is on with Montana. Autumn is a pretty good trooper about letting Montana hug and drag her around, but every now and then Autumn gets the best of her. And it is the hardest thing to not laugh!!

I am giving a shout-out to BREEANN, my niece. I found out just the other day that she knows about my blog, and I just want to say I love ya girl!!! Please leave a comment~ I would love to here from you!! Montana and Autumn miss you so much!

I leave you with a ton of pictures that my camera has been storing, and I hope you all have a wonderful hump day!

kinda cheesy

This is Montana's santa present, but Autumn puts it around her neck, turns it on & runs around the house~ so funny!
