Like the new look?

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow? I am! It's not at my house this year, I talked my mom into hosting it. LOL So all I have to do is put together a veggie tray and bake a pie. Works for me. My grandma's male "friend" isn't going to be able to make it after all. So she will be staying with my parents. My uncle asked if she would like to have Thanksgiving at his house and get this, my grandma told him that she is going up to see "Her great grand-daughter walk" LOL I highly doubt Tally is going to start walking tomorrow or in the next couple of days while my grandmother is here. She may be in a month but I doubt this week. I'm getting excited about my trip next month. I am so ready to meet my friend and I guess see my family too. hehehe (shhh... don't tell them) Not that much longer, it's sneaking up on us.

So Tally had another cold this past week. She is still a little runny but it's slowly going away. Her next doctors appt is on the 28th (next Monday) I can't wait to see how big she has gotten. Since she was sick all last week, we were stuck in the house. No playdates. It was driving me crazy. Sunday was my first mno (moms night out) and we met up at Starbucks since the Purple Glaze pottery was closed that night. A couple of us ladies stayed until close that night. They started turning the lights out on us. LOL I had fun though. Then on Monday I went to see Misty, so I could paper scrap and let Tally play with her daughter. On the way I got hit by a semi, YES a semi. Obviously we are fine and my car isn't to damaged, he just barely side swiped me. I have a dent on the back right of my truck. He didn't even know he hit me but luckily I at the light I was able to write down all of the info on his truck and call them. They are due to call me anyday about my claim. I'll keep you posted on how that goes.

As you can see from my new look, Matt took our Christmas pictures this past weekend. Brought my mom along to get Tally to smile at the camera and then she ended up wearing a red sweater too so we took some pics of her as well with Tally. I made my Christmas cards. I love the way they turned out. They are 4x8 and I've already ordered them from WinkFlash. They were sent out this morning, So I should receive them by next week. I made a page with a few of the pics for Ginas Sketch Challenge at The Digi Chick.

Weight loss has been coming a little slow lately. Haven't been pushing myself like I should be. I am hoping to get back on track after Thanksgiving. I am going to try and work on that. My mini goal right now is to at least lose another 5 lbs by the new year. We'll see if that's possible.

Tally is being a little clingy plus I don't have much more to say, so I'll leave you with a couple of pages.

It's been a while....

I've been pretty busy here lately. Not sitting about the house like the past couple of months. We've been going to some playdates from my message board in this area. I've met another nice mommy that has a 14 month old daughter and we've become pretty good friends. I joined an actual playgroup that she is in that has weekly playdates and also a MNO (Mom's night out) once a week. First one is coming up next weekend and I'm pretty excited about it. We've also been hanging out outside of playdates which is nice. She also got me into paper scrapping, Yikes, like I didn't have a bad enough habit with digital before. LOL We have another playdate today and a scrapbook/playdate tomorrow. I can't believe tomorrow is Friday again already.

I lost another pound the past couple of weeks. I've been slacking on my exercise but trying to get back into it. It's hard though, I'm so tired in the evenings so I've been trying to go for walks in the morning. These playdates are helping by getting me out of the house. Mom bought be a WW scale and I'm really starting to like it since I can get so close on my "actual weight"

Ok on to Tally... She is officially crawling! Has been for a week now. My big girl is also pulling up on everything including my desk chair, that is driving me nuts now though. We moved the desk back up into the spare room next to Tallys room and moved all of her toys in her so I can do my normal stuff on the computer and she can play and crawl all over the place. So far it's working for us.

Holidays are coming up! Like you didn't know. LOL Thanksgiving will be held at my house like it is every year. I am partially thinking my mom should have it at her place because my grandmother is coming in with her "friend" and I really don't want to cook for an couple of people. With Tally being here now, M helps me with her but I don't know, we'll see. I am thinking maybe we could do Tally's first Christmas here and that way it won't be a big deal for Thanksgiving over there. We are going to Texas the week before Christmas for my moms side of the familys "Christmas" we haven't attended in years, this year is different because Tally is here. It will be nice to see the family again on a happy note instead of it being because something happened. I always love those types of trips. I also am meeting a good online friend and her family while I'm down there. She is going to come up and see me. I'm definetly excited to finally meet her and her cutie pie who is 2 days older than T.

Need to get off her for a bit and make Tallys breakfast and eat something myself and then get ready for our playdate. Hopefully it won't be to long until my next blog but I'm not making any promises!
