So my last post was about St. Patrick’s Day, but the one before that was from Febraury so its time we catch up so I can make current daily posts!
So what’s going on with us?
DAN: Dan went back to work Monday, while I am still off until April 1st. Camden and I are missing him but glad tomorrow is his day off!!! His birthday is March 31st, the big 2-9, so last night we went out to dinner and saw Book of Mormon at the Bushnell. We loved it! I had bought the tickets for Christmas knowing it would be part of his birthday expeditions! My question for anyone who has seen it also, how many pissed off people were there? At our show there were so many! I don’t think many people researched the show, what it was about, or that Trey Parker wrote it (he created South Park if you didn’t know), of course it was going to be inappropriate.
In other Dan news he is happy, yet sad it is Spring. He bought a new to him snowmobile a couple of weeks ago so its bittersweet. BUT he can ride his dirt bike around now without its snow tires and that is pretty exciting! His racing season is going to start soon for his dirtbike I am so excited, especially since now Camden can watch and realize whats going on better than the last race he was at!
ALEX: That’s me, but if you didn’t know that you must be a new reader so welcome!!! Today I am signing up for my next half marathon, it is in April! I haven’t ran more than a mile since I have been home from Florida and I am craving a run, so having a race to do will keep me training! I haven’t ran a lot only because once I got home I had a terrible cold and it kept going around the house! It appears we have all finally defeated the cold! (Knock on wood)
In other news for me my Scentsy business is going amazing! My goal this year is to recruit and help as many people as possible reach their goals with Scentsy. It can be done, I initially joined to use the extra money for my car payments and use my regular salary for bills and fun. Now however with 2 years left on the loan, my car is almost paid off and Dan and I will start being able to make double mortgage payments. Plus my credit card debt is almost zero!!! Pretty amazing stuff, all from an electric warmer and some wax, who would have thought!
The food in the background of the picture was for breakfast the next morning, I have been food prepping because I am on an eating plan to coincide with my training. Since I had Camden I have lost 40 pounds! I have about 15 left until I am to my pre-pregnancy weight! Since I have been on the plan I have lost 10lbs which was great that even being sick/too lazy to meal prep some days I have kept it off!
Plus Dan has devised a reward system for me, each Monday I weigh in and tell him what I weigh. Then depending on how much I have lost I get to eat an Oreo per pound! I love Oreos and Dan bought me two packs and hid them.
Here’s a picture of him presenting them to me.
Finally Camden and Finny: Our little boys! First we start with the oldest, Finny!
Finny needs a haircut, I have to get him to the groomer, but as Camden gets older they play more and have a great time. They are best friends.
Camden: Let’s all notice Camden in the above picture, his abilities are starting to concern me! He turned 7 months yesterday and has been on the move for about a month, he crawls, he rolls and now he does this….
This was an interesting turn of events as I left him lying on the blanket playing with his toys, I came back from doing my makeup and this happened….oh no!!! Yesterday he was at my grandmas and was standing against her ottoman, he took a few steps towards a chair and then fell over. PLEASE DON’T WALK YET!
Currently he is lying behind me on the couch, pulling my hair and proud of himself that he can get his own bib on and off now. He’s pretty cute! However since he has been sick he has also been sleeping a lot.
Passed out on St. Patricks Day.
And passed out on Mommy…
So that is basically what has been going on with us in the past month, not too much but fun, hobbies and love. Our little family is doing great and watching our little boy grow and learn more everyday is my favorite!
