Play time

My mom had a hair appointment today so I got to watch my niece and a family friend. We had so much fun. We played princess. Well princess defender.  My niece Whitney played the princess and me and Cameron played her warriors. We fought off the radioactive chickens along with the turkeys that pooped out corn dogs.  It was so much fun. Today just made me more ready for kids. I want to play, color, and dress up. I can't do any of that until our kids reach a certain age.  Lets get started now.

Fun with hair

I'm doing my own hair for my sisters wedding and so I've been watching YouTube videos to learn some easy hair styles.  I've decided on a reverse French twist for the wedding but i still don't have a clue on how im wearing it for the rehearsal dinner. This is my first sock bun and I think I'm going to like them. Next up on my list of hair styles to try is the victory roll.  Wish me luck and pictures to come if I can get one right.

Last day

Fasting was so hard. But as you can see it worked really well for a diet. Eight pounds in 21 days. Not bad. I think we will do this again next year.  Midnight will be a happy time and then back to a strict diet tomorrow

Closer and closer

I can feel us getting closer and closer to babies. The other day leif paid off my car so we have one less bill to pay each month. That money will be going straight to savings every month.  Savings for babies. Yay!! Things are going really well right now. And our fast is almost over. I'm down seven lbs in 18 days and leif is down ten. The diet is working so well. I think even after the fast is over we are going to keep doing it a couple days a week to maintain the weight loss.  Babies are just around the corner and I'm so excited

yesterday was our nine year anniversary of dating and our four year anniversary of being married. it was a low key anniversary because we cant really eat anything because of the fast but it was fun. we camped out in the living room and made homemade popcorn. this picture is one of the few pictures we have from our very very very small wedding. it was raining yesterday just like our wedding day. cold nasty and rainy as always. funny that when we started dating the weather was good on that day but now that we got married in the rain it has rained every year since. they say rain is good luck on your wedding day so every year we get rain and remember how lucky we are.

Hahaha tofu

I went ahead and made tofu for a meal since we need protein and tofu is really good for that. I'm not sure if I made it wrong or not but I took one bite and wanted to throw it away. Just to make sure I wasn't being a baby I had leif try one piece and he almost gagged. Oh well.  Now all we have for lunch are pb&js made on my homemade flat bread. Yay. Day seven and I can't wait to eat a bacon cheeseburger.  Food is now food porn. I see comercials and dream about meat and cheese. The 21th can't come fast enough

Crazy thought

If you have know idea why your child is screaming in the middle of a restaurant at ten o'clock at night then maybe they shouldn't be at a restaurant that late. I dont know, maybe they should be in bed. Just a thought.

Eating healthy, not boring

We are on day three of our little fast and its going great so far. Our food choices might be a little smaller than we are use to but we are making the most of it. Last night I had a strawberry spinach salad with pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. It was sooo good and good for me. The fast is already a great diet, we have both lost 3 lbs in 3 days and we get to eat all day. Its only fruits and vegetables but still to snack all day and still lose 3 lbs is really cool. Today I get hummus and carrots for my snack and I can't wait to eat it. I'm trying new things with this fast and feeling wonderful about it. New healthy things that I like. I think even after the fast we will pick a couple days a month to eat vegan so we can keep the weight off.

Day one down

Leif was so funny all day. He thought he was going to die because he didn't have any meat in his body. Now that he is sitting down he said it wasn't too bad but he will struggle. I have been wanting milk all day. I love milk. I miss milk. Its only been one day. Thanks goodness I like soy milk. I can see why fasting brings people closer to god. You just need to find strength somewhere.  One day down 20 to go
