Not so good WW dinner lol

So today I made sweet and sour pork for dinner....I was really excited for it and David was as well. The cook time was good, not to long not to short, and it smelled great as it was cooking but when it was done it was well.... not that great. We both felt that the sauce should have been thicker and it was kinda bland. The sauce was sweet and delicious but that was really the only flavor. IT was only 7 points per serving and one serving did keep me full all night so I suppose thats an up side. So here is a picture. The food turned out pretty but I wouldn't recommend it :(

Fun night

SO yesterday David got an unexpected bonus at work so we took half of the money and put it in our savings and we took half and went shopping! We Never spend money on clothes unless its five or ten every couple months so we each bought a few new outfits and I am proud to say I was able to buy two new pairs of jeans size 11 that fit great! Now I don't have to wear my maternity pants every day that make me feel like a cow lol! We had a lot of fun shopping!

Ah good day

So I started watching Kayleigh's little ones today so now monday through Wednesday I have four babies to play with! lol It was fun today and wasn't to hectic. I think this will be good for both Kayleigh and I and all of our kids. I wrote out my menu for the week so I can go grocery shopping and I am really excited! Thanks to mom I was able to get online and get some WW recipes! I am going to make WW dinners six days this week and I will post about the ones I like the most! We will see if I can have a better week this week. I gained a couple ounces last week due to a few over sized meals this weekend. Here's to a good week!

SAHM for now

So as I told many people, I had decided to go back to work part time starting this Wednesday. After a couple days of getting the run around by HR I was informed I won't be able to return. So looks like I will be a stay home mom for a while after all. I am sure I will enjoy it very much but I am disappointed to have lost a good job that I really enjoyed and had lots of opportunities..

Happy birthday little sister!

A post for my little sister who just a few years ago was a baby I called Emoswee (spelling? lol)

E- eccentric little girl full of energy and excitement. She can light up a room.
M- Just kidding. She is very talented and likes to show every one all the things she can do.
I- Intelligent. I wish I had been as smart as she is when I was in school. I think she reads at a higher reading level than I do now :)
L- Loving and fun. she wants more attention then she can get some times but that is only because she loves sharing her excitement with every one around her.
Y- Young and young at heart as I hope she always stays.

Happy Birthday to Emily who is growing up to fast :)

Tag! I'm it!

Mom tagged me with the letter G so... Here goes

Ten things I love that start with "G"

1: Grey's Anatomy! I love this show. I was turned on to it by Mom and my sistas. I like it probably to an unhealthy extent. Some times when I watch it I get so obsorbed that I have trouble switching back to real life when the show ends lol. I make a point to rent every movie I find that has one of the carachters in it even if the movie doesn't look that good... It's sad.

2: Grocery Shopping! When I first lived on my own with David when I was seventeen we lived in a little appartment acrost the street from a smiths on redwood. I was working full time and going to school full time and trying to build a relationship. I was tired and stressed a lot and I found that the twenty minutes I would spend grocery shopping every now and then was the most relaxed I was. Ever sence then grocery shopping has been sort of my get away. When I am upset or overwhelmed I love to go to the store by my self and just walk around even if I don't buy anything.

3: Garth Brooks! I have always been a huge fan of Garth. I remember jumping up and down clapping when he won artist of the year when I was about ten years old. Lol I just think he is great.

4:Girls! Not only are some of my favorite people girls my sisters, my moms, my baby girl... but just girls overall are awesome! Way more awesome then stinky boys!!! Lol

5: Gossip! I don't mean the kind of gossip you see on Desperate housewives. I love when I get together with some one ANY ONE and you just get talking and can't stop. Before you know it three hours have gone by and you haven't gotten anything done that you were supposed to do. Thats the best! I loved having sleep overs when I was younger and no matter how tired we were we couldn't stop talking long enough to fall asleep. Another reason I love girls so much I suppose :)

6: Grand babies! I know I know I am a long way from being a grandma...(lets hope) But I absolutly love the thought of having grandbabies. I am scared to death to stop at two kids because that means I have a chance of having a very small number of grandbabies and that just won't do!

7: Goals! Having a goal gives you a chalange and some thing to look forward to. Some times I think I over plan every thing in my life but planning is just my way of setting goals for the things I want to accomplish big and small.

8: Good Friends! In life you find those people who seem to be the only ones other than family who just won't go away. A few people in my life who just keep coming back...


Jared James Gotta love them all :) Those are a few good friends that I hope are always around even if they come and go.

9: Giggles! I love giggles especially sweet baby giggles!
10: Goodbyes! "Every new begining comes from some other beginings end."

I need some hobbies

I love staying home with my sweet babies but man do you get sick of the house quick! You can only clean so much and some times I don't even get that done cuz I am sick of the house lol. I need a hobby that will get me out of the house and give me energy with out costing me to much money. I want to start walking every day with the kids but I need to wait a little longer till the weather is warmer. I just have to mix things up I guess :) Play new games with my miss and find new exciting ways to clean the house lol :)

Ah hectic mornings lol

I was strongly reminded what it means to be a parent today lol. I returned home after dropping my car off for some pricey repairs, when I walked in the phone was ringing, Tukker wouldn't shut the door and stop crying for grandma, Maveryk was crying for food and was also covered in poop waist down. I was hungry but didn't have two seconds to think about eating because I was very ready to nurse. I hadn't showered or changed clothes for my self or either of my children... I just sat down on the couch and closed my eyes for a minute then got up smiling and went to work on smoothing out my overload of chores. lol I love being a grown up. Now that I am almost out of time before I have to pick David up I need to get to work cleaning my house! It is in serious trouble at the moment and needs immediate attention :)

Look who got a belly button! :)

Week two down eighteen years to go!

So I have been mommy to two for almost two weeks now. Every thing is going great. I have had lots of help which has been nice. It really has been a job to learn to adjust to two. Traveling with two and trying to get some sleep with two are probably the hardest for me lol. But every thing is coming together now and Tukker is adjusting quickly to. She loves her bubble (brother) and her biggest problem is that she can't seem to kiss him enough lol. Well I don't have to much to talk about so I will post after weigh in on sunday! Woo Hoo
