Birthday Fun!

On Tuesday my hubby turned 33 and I decided to get some cupcakes from I also planned a special dinner of filet mignon, baked potato and broccoli.

So the night before I decided I was going to make a mini banner that said Happy Birthday! I was a bit nervous since I have never attempted one before. But all went smoothly since I have a Circut and I was able to cut all the shapes out in no time! I loved the way it turned out and I can't wait to use it again!

Here are few pictures! Please excuse the cupcake mess the FEDEX guy can walking up to my door with the package side ways so the icing shifted.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Blood work

So I have been feeling all out of whack the past few weeks and I have been frustrated with the stalled weight loss progress. So I decided to switch doctors and find out what is going on with me.

LOVE, LOVE the practice I switched to. It is where I take my dad and the all the staff is awesome! So I was sent for blood work to see is it was my blood sugar cause these problems(long family history of diabetes and I was diagnosed with Type 2 in late 2009). Well the results are in and it is my blood sugar. It was 140 fasting not good!!!!

So I am on meds and I am watching my sugar/carb intake and I found a great website with a message board! I am going to get this under control and I am going to get healthy!

Now where did I put my glucose meter???

Easter 2011

It has been a busy few months! I hope to catch up on the goings on but today I am going to focus on Easter!

Last Sunday we went to my cousins in PA for Palm Sunday brunch and egg hunt for the kids. I was great seeing my family and watch the next generation of cousins play! I forgot my camera so no pictures for that event. Then we were off to egg hunt number 2 of the day. It was a Fundraiser for Molly and her family. I was so awesome to see so many families come out and support Molly and her family! I think this is going to be an awesome event for years to come!

Saturday we colored Eggs and Ty had a blast! He got a kick out of some of the eggs having our names on them!

A few pictures of the egg dying.

Sunday was Easter! Ty was excited for the Bunny. I think he was thinking Christmas morning but I told him it was a very scaled down Christmas morning. SO up at 6am and downstairs we go and Ty was very happy the Lego's and Lighting McQueen beach chair. The we had an indoor egg hunt and he was pleased with the jelly beans and money that were in the eggs! He loved getting monies! He is saving for a Lego Space Shuttle!

Here are a few pictures from yesterday. They were taken with my cell phone so they are not great.

Thanks for taking a peak into our lives! I am hoping to update more!
