Operation 50 Pounds!


The last couple of weeks I have been dreaming of myself in bed because I am too fat to walk. People are laughing at me and I am crying. Yesterday morning I woke up and told myself enough is enough! I am losing 50 pounds. I have been reading up online some tips on how to do that. It said to make it public. So that's what I am doing! I am going to be sharing my weight loss journey on this blog. So when I post that I have lost weight you don't have to read it if you don't want to. I will be doing this for me (I guess its easier to break your diet when nobody knows your on it). So yesterday I started. I worked out for 30 min ( did an on demand workout), ate really healthy, and didn't snack. Today I weighed myself and I have lost 2 pounds already! I was excited! Now all I need to lose is 48 pounds ha! Wish me luck everybody!

just hanging out with the pumpkins







I started to decorate for Halloween (the dollar store is awesome for decorations!) and Brady was sad that he couldn't help mommy so I put his hat and jacket on and let him play with the pumpkins. I thought that he looked like the cutest thing in the world so I took some pictures. He loves to play outside!

We Got A New Puppy! ; )


This is Brady's favorite toy. A chewed up dog toy. He crawls around all day with it in his hand. This is the first thing he wants once he wakes up in the morning. He wants nothing to do with all of his nice toys in his basket. He loves Max and wants what he has. Brady officially stole Max's favorite toy! I have two little puppies over here!

Navy Life :(




This is sad. I have been thinking about Joe going on deployment lately. We both know it is coming soon. The thought of him not seeing Brady and I for 8 or 9 months makes me very very emotional. I will just try and not think about it! Hopefully the ships will be full and he wont leave for another two years ; )

Diaper rash


Last night we had a baby and mommy meltdown! Last night around 2 a.m. Brady woke up crying so Joe got up and gave him a bottle to drink. After he drank that he started crying even harder so Joe came into our bedroom and asked me what was wrong so I told him his gums hurt (he has been teething but no teeth yet!) or he needs a diaper change. So Joe checked his diaper (so he says) and said it was clear. Well Brady got worse and after a half of an hour of him screaming and me giving him some baby Tylenol I decided to check his diaper. He pooped. His poor bum was on fire. So I started to change him and once I touched him he was in the worst pain of his life. I felt so bad for him! I started to cry from my overwhelming feeling of guilt and I was also a little mad at Joe for not actually checking his diaper. I finally got him to sleep around 3 am. I really can't stand to see Brady in pain. I guess it's just a part of motherhood that is inevitable!

Trip to Boise

Brady and I are finally at home in Oak Harbor from a week at my parents and a weekend in Boise, Idaho for a wedding! It was really great to see some my family in Idaho. Here are some pictures of our journey.



Here is a picture of Brady taking a bath. I thought it was cute, he looks like he is relaxing in a hot tub.
