My surgery went well and it totally made my day that I got a hot pink bandage!  I plan to take my pain meds and watch Book of Eli now.  I wonder if Oliver can manage to get my hair in a ponytail?  It may be too much for him to handle :)


Weight Loss Update!

I'm sooooo close to pre baby weight! I have like 4 pounds left and I'm so excited!  Sorry if I look a little sweaty I just came back from bootcamp and it's like 100 degrees out here.  I have been doing really well with my eating, watching my portion sizes mostly.  I've had to cut back my working out to just 3 days a week because of freaking Calculus class.  I try to burn between 800 and 1000 calories on those days though.  I love my heart rate monitor because when I feel like quitting I look down and only see 400 calories and I'm think to myself, that's not even lunch! 

Yeah I still have a ways to go to goal weight, but I'm feeling really good!  You should check out the muscle in my legs, I could kick some A**!  I really wish my boobs would get smaller, geez.  I'm not doing WW anymore I just felt like I was motivated enough on my own and didn't need to go to meetings.  I think I weigh myself too much because every morning Miss Madison goes in there and weighs herself too :)

Look Miss Madi is getting some hair!  I'm stocked on little rubberbands so that I'm ready for the day I can give her some pigtails! It may be a while though.

Are you guys excited for the return of Project Runway and Jersey Shore? I am!!! PR looks like it's gonna be a good one this time and I'm addicted to these crazy Jersey people, I'm also watching Jerseylicious.  I know I know, too much TV.  Funny story a lady at bootcamp was like 'the Rangers were down 2 when I left'  I just stared at her blankly until I realized she was talking about baseball.  I told her 'oh I don't watch that, but I was watching Housewives of NJ before I came!'  I don't think we will become friends :)  She looked at me like I was crazy.


ABC'S of me

I saw this over at Emily's blog and thought I would play along, while I half watch the Housewives of NJ> is it just me or are they kinda boring and annoying??  I like the OC and NY better :)


A- My AIR CONDITIONER is set on: right now 77 Oliver will turn it down to 75 before bed, then I go and turn it back up.  I'm always cold and if I lived alone it would be on 79 all the time!

B- My BEDROOM theme is: black, white, and red.  The red wall was the first wall I ever painted and it's not great.  I may have taped the wall instead of the trim and got some on the ceiling, but it looks good from a distance!
C- The CAR in the driveway is:  I drive a Camry, which I love!  Oliver has a big black Ford truck, yes he's that jerk in the huge truck who cuts you off! Just kidding, he a grandpa driver.  We also have a Mustang from pre-baby days that needs to go, it's so not baby friendly.

D- My DESK looks: Well if I had one that would be nice.  I may have broken Oliver's while kicking him out of the big room so I could put Madi in there and now I have to let him use mine.  I'm usually sitting on the couch with my laptop anyways.
E- The EXACT time I wake up daily is: ugh 5:10am.  That's pretty early considering I don't have a job.
F- The FIRST thing I wash in the shower is: My hair so it can 'soak' while I do the rest of me.
G- My GARAGE is filled with: regular old stuff.  Plus a antique vanity my Mom gave me that I need to redo.  I need some cooler weather before I'll tackle that!

H- My HOUSE is: pretty.  I love my house.

I- If you peeked INSIDE my bedroom you'd see: My awesome zebra rug and my bed made, thanks to my awesome MIL who just happens to love to clean while she's babysitting.  Don't hate me because I'm spoiled :)

J- My favorite JUICE is: eh I don't really like juice, too much sugar.

K- The best part of my KITCHEN is: Hmmm the size.  I have a lot of counter space.

L- The LAST person who visited my home was: My MIL she comes 4x a week to watch Miss M.

M- The last piece of MAIL for me was: A Lane Bryant catalog.

N- My NEIGHBORS think I'm: super awesome I hope! I did bake them cookies when they moved in.

O- If you OPENED my fridge you'd see: Sugar Free Sweet Tea. Love love love this!
P- My last house PARTY was: about 2 months ago.  I've been way to busy to think about having a party.
Q- A QUICK meal I like to fix is: Pasta and shrimp or turkey sausage. Yum I love pasta!
R- My favorite ROOM of the house is: Madi's room! I would have loved to have an awesome room like that when I was young.
S- The SHAMPOO brand I use is: Whatever catches my eye. I always buy something different because it makes your hair look awesome.
T- My largest TELEVISION is: a huge monster 52 inch thing. I hate it. Oliver loves it. I had to give him something :)

U- UNDER my bed you will find: a trundle and mattress in case we need it for extra guests.

V- The last time I VACUUMED was: Yesterday. ps I heart my Dyson.
W- Looking out my WINDOW I see: my backyard and the houses on the next street.  We don't' have a privacy fence thank goodness so I actually have a view! 

X- I wish I had X-TRA: money. duh.  I have so many ideas of what I could do with it!
Y- My YARD is: super large.
Z- ZZZZZZZ My bedtime is: well usually 830, but it's 845 now and we are watching Intervention so maybe like 915 tonight.

If you do this quiz too leave me a comment so I can come read yours.


Just 2 minutes of my day

I love this child. Somedays she's just so much fun!


Top 2 Tuesday

My 2 favorite scents are easy!

This is an oldie, but a goody! It's my favorite winter scent. Random, I know :)

I heart gardenia in the warm months.

Just for fun this is my favorite on my hubs :) Rawr!

Join in on the party over at The Undomestic Momma!


What I've been doing

Well I must have been suffering from heat exhaustion because for some crazy reason I thought taking my Calculus class during the summer was a good idea.  Bad bad idea. I've literally been missing out on all the fun stuff because I've been studying and studying and studying. 

This is what I found when I finally emereged from the back room.

Also the weekend before school started I decided it would be a good idea to kick Oliver out of the big room and move Miss Madison in there so she would have the biggest room for all her stuff.

This is what my dining room looked like all weekend while I repainted not 1, but 2 rooms! Miss M thought it was awesome and was climbing and pulling everything out. 

So I've also had this really weird thing going on with my thumb for like, 20 years!! I've been to a general doctor about it a few times and they could never tell me what was wrong.  Well it's really been bothering me so I finally went to see a hand surgeon.

He said it's a vascular anomaly, whatever that is!  So I have to have surgery on it next Friday.  Plus it's Canton weekend and my Mom is leaving to ride the party bus to go shopping that day.  I'm missing out again!!!

This is Miss Madison's favorite spot, the pantry where the cookies are.  I've caught her a few times with her hand in the trisket box!

I'm totally trying to get her to feed herself so I don't have to anymore!

Happy Weekend Y'all!!


Lessons and haters

So I learned a few things on my lovely vacation.  One is that if you are flying with a 15 month old....get a freaking direct flight! 2 planes+2 hour drive=not so happy baby.  The second is to get her a room of her own.  When she is sleeping in a pack and play right by your bed and see's you sleeping there at 430 in the morning she may have a tendency to let out an ear piercing Indian yell to get your attention.  Try being woken up to that everyday.

One of the best things about coming home is a DVR full of all your favorite shows!  I have to tell you that if you are not watching Bethanny Getting Married you are so missing out.

I love this show! Her wedding was so perfect and beautiful, I even cried at their wedding vows.  She cracks me up and is so honest about everything.  I can't even be a hater about her being back to her normal size like the day after she gave birth :)  Unlike Giselle.

This is her like MAYBE 3 months after. I wish I had 'muscle memory' like that! Now I am being a hater, :)


Be back soon!

Sorry I've been missing...

We are still enjoying our vacation....

I've been laying on the beach....

and feeding Miss Madison wayyyyyy too much ice cream....

We went to a great parade....
