playing catch-up

greetings! sorry that i have been absent recently. i guess that this whole "summer vacation" thing has gotten to me. i have been enjoying sleeping in, watching terrible reality tv and spending time with jacob when he has days off - lounging by the pool and going to valleyfair.

most recently i spent time visiting my ADORABLE (not that i am biased or anything) nieces, baya and byanka, in louisville, kentucky. oh yeah, my brother and sister-in-law too. : ) we went swimming at the pool, got ice cream, played at a park, watched LOTS of animated movies and just hung around the house. i am a very proud aunt so excuse the numerous pictures i am sharing.
 Picking me up from the airport. 
 "Jammies" & "miiiiilk" time before bed.
Playing outside in the backyard. 
 Before we went to a fancy dinner Saturday night.
Seeing "Brave" at the theater.
 Getting homemade ice cream.

 Baya is ready for dance class. 
 Practicing ballet and tap.
 At the playground.
 Plane ride home. Twins playing at night!

all in all, i had a blast. it was nice to see them but i missed jacob. i know, i know, i am such a girl. back in reality, i was up weight-wise last week but i am already back down and under as of today. i am definitely looking forward to the weigh-in on saturday - weird, right? new pictures, as always.
i hope hope hope that maybe i will hit the 150s soon - if not this week, then next - so think good thoughts for me!

i also excited because my elementary/middle/high/college/forever friend rachel is visiting this weekend and i hope that we have lots of fun despite the ridiculous heat!


welcome, summer vacation!

happy wednesday!

i have been a terrible blogger of late. maybe i am just enjoying sleeping in and doing nothing too much...

so, since it is summer, i only have jacob as my photographer (i miss you, abby!). here are this week's newest shots.

i feel like i have looked the same the last couple of weeks, hence, the original photos being inserted as well. i have to keep reminding myself that yes, i have made progress. 



hello all!

it has been awhile since i have posted. sorry.

i have had conflicts the past few weekends so i have not been able to weigh-in like normal. i think, based on my scale, that i am down about 0.9 lb. again, that is based on my home scale which might not match. oh well!

i can say, that i am within 20 lb of the high end of my height's weight range. i still have not decided about the final number. this last bunch of pounds is a little scary to me. all the exercise i have been avoiding is probably going to have to start. and being that it is summer vacation...UGH! no excuses, right? : )

here are pictures from last week and this week.

not sure i see anything new of note. just that my legs are super pale from wearing pants all year long! here is to taking advantage of the nice weather this weekend and getting outside for some sun!
