Saturday Musings...

She is definitely MY daughter – already a shoe obsession!

So this REALLY weird thing happened – I managed to get the entire weekend off and I didn’t even ask???
Did the planets align when I wasn’t looking???
The thing is that during the summer months we are dead on weekends as I assume most people are doing the summery thing like BBQ’s and such. So here I am with a weekend off without even requesting it – sa-weet!

Another weird thing happened…
I have been missing the South (I am originally a Southern Belle via the Mississippi Gulf Coast) and the South decided to come up and visit me.
How nice!
Seriously oppressive HOT ASS weather in these parts. Yesterday we topped 100 degrees and today will be equally hot. But I am not complaining – just sweating bullets with a smile because hot weather is WAY better than cold weather in my humble opinion.

So we have had a great week – a lot of time in our pool and playing outside – which is a MUST when you have a clever two year old who seems to need constant stimulation.

It’s not a successful play day unless ya gotta dirty face!

Guaring her castle…

Sandbox time…

Skylar and Hunter


In other news…
I am still feeling really great – the only side effect I have noticed is a lack of appetite (not necessarily a bad thing) and a feeling that nothing tastes very good (also not necessarily a bad thing). I have consciously had to make myself eat at times and it showed on my weigh-in yesterday.
I was down SEVEN pounds.
Of course I am happy about that – I am currently in a new weight bracket that I havent seen in a year.
I just wish it had been done in a healthier way. But it is the MAJOR push over the hump that has bogged me down for months. I will just make an effort to eat better this week!

Although I/We (my son Peyton & I) did have a good workout week – even despite the heat. We walked and spent a lot of time in the pool swimming. Sadly – we are TOTALLY slacking on the 30 Day Shred. I keep saying I will do it and don’t?
I do have a lot going on – but who doesn’t?
We just need to quit talking about it and just do it!

One final thing…
Every single time I think of doing a drastic cut to my hair I see someone who did and hates it…
Makes me really re-think the whole *chop your hair off* thing.

Vanessa Hudgens is a beautiful girl hands down with long or short hair. Apparently she chopped her locks for a movie and absolutely hates it calling it *soccer Mom* hair.
I dunno exactly what *soccer Mom* hair is but the cut definitely is not worthy of a gorgeous 22 year old and I think it makes her a bit matronly. Although that dress is fabulous!

I still want to take a significant amount of hair off – but anything past the collar bone is a wee bit drasticand I certainly don’t want *soccer Mom* hair -- whatever the hell that is? Although there is part of me that dreams of a SUPER short haircut that I can just roll out of bed, rub some pomade into, and go.
Ahhh to dream...

HaPPy SaTurDaY BLoGdoM!


  1. If the lack of appetite is from the meds, that will wear off. I used to take wellbutrin and after a month or so things evened out. Congrats on the weight loss!

  2. Hi! I am a new follower from Follow Friday hop! So glad I found your blog! Please stop by to say hi & return follow! :)

  3. Yea, Selena Gomez cut her hair off too. I have no idea what in the world "soccer mom" hair is either!

  4. Enjoy your weekend off!!!

    I take medicine that caused me to have a loss in appetite, I eventually regained my appetite back, never quite the same but I do have my taste buds back and I get hungry again, so hang in there!!

    Oh, and I agree HOT is way better than cold!

  5. Love the pictures with Hunter and Skylar!

    I know how you feel about the hair. I won't go shorter than shoulder length. My hair is easier to do when it's longer.

    That hairstyle does nothing for Vanessa Hudgens. It definitely makes her look alot older than she is.

  6. I chopped my waist length hair short, short, short a few years ago and haven't regretted it one bit.

  7. love the pictures of your kids! You can tell they have adore one another.

  8. @Rachel -- oh so I won't lose my appetite forever? DRATS! LOL Thank you!!!

    @Kiana -- She did? Woa -- I must investigate. Although I don't get what all the fuss about he is???

    Lucy -- Thanks and I am already feeling hungry again -- but I am PMS'n like a MoFo!

    Marie -- I have had VERY short hair before -- chopped it off in hairdressing school like just about everyone does. I LOVED it but longer hair is just more feminine and I was only (oddly) 22 at the time.

    Mrs. Tuna-- Wow -- well baby steps for me -- I chopped waist length hair once and my son (then four) didn't even recognize me... LOL!

    Abbie -- Aww thanks. Skylar is the only person on the planet who makes *too cool for school* Hunter crack a smile... she has his heart for sure!!!
