Charlotte and Evelyn could hardly contain their excitement...Mommy won a trophy! Well, it wasn't a real trophy, I guess. But it was a large victory for me. At bootcamp we took a fitness test at the beginning and end. I have improved my fitness level by 37%! 37%!!! Unbelievable. Just a month ago I was struggling to do just basic physical tasks. Most improved. That's ME!

Prima Ballerinas

These beautiful bunnies lit up the stage during their first ballet recital. Of course my little bunnies were the cutest little bunnies...

Fun with my sister

It was cool and kind of rainy, but a good day for pouring water on the deck, splashing to my heart's content, and then giving my little sister a facial. Good times.

The girls are snuggled into my bed watching "Caillou" before they go to bed so I just have a couple of quick minutes. It seems like this month has been a blur and I really only remember bits and pieces. I definitely remember boot camp! I have been working my butt off 4 nights a week for the past 3 weeks. One week left, I'll be sad to see it go because it has really flipped a switch for me. I can do this. For so long I have felt like I just couldn't keep up so I was afraid to join a gym or attend fitness type classes. I will definitely move on to some other form of excercise 4-5 times a week from here on out. I've come so far in 3 weeks, I can't wait to see the results after a few months!

On to other topics...Here is what we plan to give Daddy for Father's Day. I don't think he'll check out my blog before then.

Remember that snuggly scene I described a minute ago? The girls watching "Caillou" in my bed? Now it has dissolved into total meltdown. Got to go...

There is such a thing as too much cake!

While it feels like Mac has always been a part of our lives, it also seems like I just saw that faint pink second line...
Here is a preview of the birthday fun. As I am too tired to write much more tonight, I will be back tomorrow to entertain you with stories of graduations, birthdays, playdates, Grandparent visits and much more. Stay tuned...

Blog Lover

That's me. I am in love with reading blogs. Blogs of all shapes and sizes. Blogs that are authored by people I actually know in person,and some by those I consider friends, but only have an online friendship with. There are a couple of other categories.
1~ Blogs that are written by people who drive me to jealousy because their lives are seemingly perfect.
2~ Blogs I have found off of the sidebar of other peoples' blogs. Sometimes these people have strikingly similar blogs as the aforementioned people whose lives I covet. Other times, I discover people who are actually a lot like me. Sometimes I find a blog that is incredibly sad, yet inspires me by the authors ability to overcome these sad circumstances.
3~Home decorating/crafty people blogs.
4~Blogs that give step by step photoshop tutorials. (My favorite because some of us idiots out there really want to use Photoshop but are not smart enough to crack the code)
I aspire to write a blog that interests people other than my immediate family, yet can't seem to break out of that "Hi, aren't my kids cute? Look at this new pic!" type of blog. These blogs are actually the type I enjoy reading.
But I? Really want to inspire...
