Our Garden!

OK so our garden has gotten HUGE. We planted Green Bell Peppers, Squash (which has taken over the whole garden seems like), cabbage, cantaloupe, eggplant, tomatoes, green beans, onions, and my favorite and my baby, the pumpkins. I love carving pumpkins at Halloween time. I remember my nephew throwing the pumpkin seeds from a pumpkin he carved alongside my grandmother's house and they grew like crazy the next year. I loved the way they look and it saves me some money on buying the pumpkins from the store this halloween. I can't wait for the pumpkins to start showing! The bell peppers and tomatoes are coming along really well also, but I think the squash is coming along the best. We could feed a small army with all the squash we have accumulated. Looks like I'm going to be making squash casserole soon! Take a look at what it looks like now! You should give it a try too! Grow your own garden! i would love to see it!

She's getting so big!

Anya is growing so quickly! I can't gt over it! She had her first camping trip recently which didn't go too well with her! She loves being outside but I think the heat and bugs for that period of time didnt agree with her so we went home early. You wouldn't know by the pictures! Father's day is coming up and of course daddy had to buy some "Daddy's girl" onesies! She's going to look adorable! Today she has discovered her feet and squeeling! Yay for us! haha. She also loves to jump now and we're trying to look for a large rug for a good price for her to practice crawling on. (We have hardwood floors). Any suggestions? A rug isn't something we want to get from a yard sale, so it needs to be store bought.

As of right now with the weight loss, I'm stuck in limbo. I do Zumba every now anad again, but it's a bit expensive, so I'm waiting to get paid again. I will get into gear here again soon.

I absolutely *LOVED* this class. My mother-in-law found out about it at work and we decided to give it a try. It is a cardio class focused on latin dance but also incorporates hip hop, and other cultural dances. It's so fun you forget you're working out! Go to their website at and find a location near you. I'm going to let my Jazzercise run out and go with Zumba. If you have done it, leave a comment about it! Hope y'all are having a great day!

Sterling Silver - My Lil' Nest Necklace

I took the plundge and made a sterling silver bird's nest necklace! The others have been doing so well I figured, why not? It's an 18in necklace and the chain, latch, and nest are all sterling silver. I'm selling it for $25 on my Etsy store, . Of course if you didnt want the small pearls I can change it to where it's less or more beads, or different colors. Just convo me!

It's raining here so I'm stuck inside today. Great time to clean the house! yyyaaayyy............

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Anya is getting so big it's almost hard to believe. I'm enjoying her every moment, her every smile, and just waiting for her to bust out laughing. Unfortunately I'll be working for my very first Mother's Day, bummer. Luckily my job is only seasonal so I wont go bonkers working every weekend! I'm still doing Jazzercise and loosly doing Weight Watchers. I feel like I'm loosing weight and my pants are getting looser, but the scale hasn't changed. I'm hoping that i'm gaining muscle, b/c Jazzercise does to strength workouts along with cardio. I'm also going to try "Zumba" with my mother-in-law Monday. It's kind of like Jazzercise, but based more for latin dancing. They only charge 5 dollars a class, so I figured I could do it a couple times a month along with Jazzercise to switch it up. Who knows, I might even like it better. Well, I hope you all are having a lovely spring and happy sneezing!
