It wasn't a good day. It was raining, I was miserable, I had to make chocolate chip cookies for my kids and I had previously volunteered to make some for another event. I didn't even lick my fingers. I did find a recipe in the back of the 21 Day Fix Bible Eating Plan. Yes to me it is the Bible of all books right now when it comes to following this diet. The recipe called for oatmeal...got it!! Turns out I didn't have oatmeal. Insert miserable angry mama here. To my surprise I found one packet of plain instant oatmeal. I measured it out, it was a quarter of a cup (which I thought it was), then I divided the recipe in quarters and baked away. You know what it was DELICIOUS and I felt like I cheated! Turns out later in the day I did. I ate too many yellow containers before I realized I did and once I did I thought screw it. I'm miserable anyway, what's the difference. Clearly I had a poor attitude. I didn't work out either. GAHHHH.....oh and my morning started out bad because I gained a pound. Yesterday was a pity me day....so wasn't today, but I think now that I got a nap today, I'm ok and ready for tomorrow. Here's the cookie below and it was amazing! I know my picture doesn't do it justice but at least I remembered to take a picture of something.
Chris continues to be the hi-lite of my life and makes me laugh regularly. He is an assistant engineer and volunteers with the local youth football league as an assistant coach and serves as an assistant scout leader.
My Little Boy
Our little guy is in his troublesome three's but I love it! He continues to make us laugh and is such a kind and caring child. I couldn't ask for a better little boy in my life then him!
My Little Girl
Amelia is 18 months now and is into everything. She's ahead of the game when it comes to early development, which is good but keeps me on my toes. She's a very particular little girl and definitely wants things her way....let's just say she's very determined to get her way. I love dressing her up and I adore having a little girl in our family. I'm finally not outnumbered.
Just a mom of one little boy and two little girls, a wife of one big boy, dedicated to her country and a friend to all. Love to write, but where does the time go between being a mom and wife. Our family theme this year is service and it's a challenge and a reward all in one.
