Last Night's Dinner

Well we are not officially on the diet yet, but last night we at least had healthy food instead of junk :) I bought one of the new Stouffer's Farmers Harvest Veggie Lasagnas on sale with a coupon (the only real way to buy something lol) & decided to make it for dinner. Along side it I served sauted squash, zucchini, & onions all fresh from the Farmer's Market, my fave place to buy produce :)
It was delish! I will def be looking for these lasagnas on sale again!
I'm hoping to make it to the grocery store tomorrow, so by Monday we should officially be on our diet :)

How can I have so little motivation? My husband & I started the South Beach Diet about 6 months ago or longer, we were on it steady for about 2 months, we were losing weight, getting healthier, & enjoying it. Then his grandma got sick & we started going out of town several times in one month (& I don't diet when out of town, blame the lack of motivation we discussed earlier) & now we aren't eating healthy at all & can't find the motivation to start again.
I only blame myself & my love of unhealthy food, but & really gotta start eating healthier! I'm only 26 & I never have any energy cuz all I eat is junk food :( Which is really ridiculous cuz I love veggies! But I also love all things fried :)
So heres what I'm going to do; I am going to restart our diet soon (Why not now? Cuz I have to go grocery shopping first so we have healthy food to eat) & I will blog about our progress, what yummy recipes we are trying, & I will include pics before & after :)
So I would like to thank you now for your support in our endeavors to be healthier people :)

Hubby's Bday gift

I don't know how many others have this problem, but everytime I need a gift for my wonderful husband I have absolutely no idea what to get him :( He is the most complicated person to shop for!
Therefore, when I came up w/ the idea for his birthday gift this year- before his actual birthday-I was pretty stoked!
His birthday is Thursday, St. Patrick's Day...go ahead, guess what his name is...that's right! It's Patrick :)
So Friday I will tell you what I'm getting him...I don't want him to stumble across my blog & ruin it!
So wish me luck! Hopefully hes as excited about his gift as I am to have thought of it :)

Driving Baby

I drove Conner to Athens, TX today to meet his grandparents so they could take him for the weekend. On our trip he discovered the wonders of shadow puppets. I saw him moving his hands around & I realized he was watching the shadows & moving his fingers to make different shadows. It was super cute! It's amazing watching a child learn from the world around him :)
He was very excited to see his grandparents, & to get out of the car- an hour and a half in a carseat is an eternity for a 17 month old!
Well I need to clean house, so til next time... :)

Elias is 1 month old

It's hard to believe it, but Elias who was born 1 lb 12 oz 14.5 weeks premature, is now a month old, 2 lbs 8 oz & growing stronger everyday! His mom & dad have finally been allowed to hold him this last week, he is no longer on a ventilator, but just has the Cipap on, and they have taken out all his IVs!
So the Cipap is blocking his face, but its better than having a breathing tube do all the work :)
Some people from our church have given him some very cute premie clothes & I was helping wash them & couldn't get over how little they are! And yet they are still to big for him! Hes such a tiny guy :)
We appreciate all your prayers for little Elias while he gets strong enough to come home. Have a great day!

Cutest Kid

Just in case anyone was wondering, Conner Makoa is absolutely, without a doubt, the cutest kid ever! I know some of you are thinking that this title should belong to the child in your life, but trust me on this, I have proof, my little Makoa wins this one :)
Today he had been playing while I was checking my email & he walked over to me making kissing noises :) Already cute right?! So I was talking to him & tickling him & he kept making the kissing noises. So I bent over & gave him a kiss, & then he went off to continue playing. So cute! He wanted a kiss :) I love this kid!
OK so I'm willing to admit that maybe the child in your life amazes you with their cuteness too, so tell us about it! What have they done that made you stop & realize all over again how amazing they are? We are all looking forward to hearing your stories!
