Original Goal... I did it!



I hit goal once... I CAN do it again!

So I am back, but not being a good blogger...

I am back home from visiting mom.  I have to say I had a great time!  Life has been so hectic since I returned as I got home late on Monday evening (plane was seriously delayed in Phoenix) and went to work at 8am on Tuesday.  I have mounds of laundry as my husband justified his lack of laundry skills by saying it was impossible to do laundry as we didn't have detergent in the house.   I asked him if they closed the wal-mart while I was gone and didn't get a response.  My husband did however survive the 8 days with the 3 kids.  I am impressed with that.  Weight loss has been great and I lost some weight during my trip which is absolutely awesome as my mother seemed to not understand the concept of me not being able to eat much.  She also didn't understand that bread does not agree with me.  I even tried to go for the crusty part of a roll to shut her up and she took it and said you can have the soft (sticky) middle!  OMG  she totally didn't get it.  I survived eating with her with only 2 stuck episodes.  I haven't gotten stuck since so it was total operator error, but still...  I don't think that I have ever been on a vacation and came back lighter than when I left.  That is amazing.  Do you know what else is amazing?  I am 15 (YES 15) pounds from my goal!  I can't even imagine life there. 


So check me out in my size 6 Lucky capris!!!!! 


I can't believe that I can fit in a size 6!  I am still officially overweight by Mr. BMI (it has to be a man) for a couple more pounds, but a size 6!?  I am impressed with myself after 3 kids.

So mom and I went to Las Vegas on a whim during my trip to visit her.  Here we are right after our helicoptor ride to the Grand Canyon.

I gave mom that outfit.  I am so glad that I can't wear it anymore!
Right before I left on my trip my youngest son crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  It was a wonderful evening.  Here is a pic of my boys, and yes the older one is that tall!  I am not sure where he got it... I am 5'2"! 
 
Who can forget the princess!
I am still trying to catch up on reading everyone's posts from when I was gone.  If my commenting is a little light, I am just really behind.  I am working to get caught up on everyone's goings on.  I WILL get caught up!  Just call me the  behind blogger.  OK don't that sounds a bit strange...
