Scale back and So Many Pictures!

As delicious as this looks....
....I do not need the weight loss police coming after me.....
...So I will settle for this.....
.....And try to do more of this.....
.....So I don't look like this!!!
 Yes, you read that right!!! I am participating in a program called Scale Back Alabama! Noah's school sent home information about it, and the letter indicated that several of the teachers and staff members would be participating, and that parents and grandparents were invited to join in on the fun! The night before the deadline for registration, a friend called me and asked me did I want to be on a team with her, and after dragging my feet, I agreed! I called two of my other friends, and tada.......we are team "Wii Not Fit!" We are also the only team of parents to join!!!! Woo hoo for the Hot Mamas! The goal is to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks to be the perfect 10! So far, our team, lead by their captain Tiffany (how was I nominated again?!?!) has been doing great.....but boy is it work! Just making healthier choices and adding a few exercises is a chore, but it's been fun having our team together for this journey! I didn't take a before picture.....but I definitely will take an after picture! 

Also, we had a busy busy weekend, and here is the re-cap:

We're very proud of these basketball playing cousins!!!

We also took a trip north of the interstate to visit some of hubby's lifetime family friends, and boy was I surprised at this back yard!!! I would never ever go inside if this was my back yard! Derrick and his family lived about a mile from here for most of Derrick's life, and the folks who live here are simply the sweetest! Their stories and roots go way back, and I am looking forward to more Saturdays at their house!

Also, I was even more surprised by the shark sized catfish in this beautiful back yard!
We also celebrated Poppy's 71st birthday!
Yes, the cake reads, "Pink Panty," and the party was decorated with pink, purple, and butterflies! Noah has a longstanding joke with his grandfather, "Poppy wears Pink Panties!" So Noah insisted that Poppy have a Pink Panty cake!

We took a  trip to the library, and against my best wishes, Nicholas Brees had to have a Barney movie!!! But big brother Noah stuck to reading!
For months, I have been trying to find something Nicholas was sit still and watch, or sit still and do, so that I could do some of my school work, and up until about 2 weeks ago, I had no such luck! Alas, Barney has made his way into our house....which I am coming to terms with.....and hopefully I will not regret it!!!
And for our latest school project, we had to make two users for our computers, and create user names. The only two things that came to my mind, of course, were Rammer Jammer and Yellow Hammer!!!! Thank God Derrick helped me name our children!!! haha!

So, I will be singing Sally the Camel, and creating web pages, while doing Zumba, eating fruit, cheering on ball players,  and getting my cane pole ready!!! RTR!


  1. Girl I need to loose some of this baby weight! Good For you! Good luck!!!! Pass on any yummy recipes or tricks you come up with so maybe I can get some of this baby weight off!

  2. Thank you! One of the main things I am doing is drinking only water, no soft drinks, juice, or tea! I am also eating more veggies and fruits, and as few carbs as possible!
