Weight Loss Wednesday – Loser!

Standard

I managed to lose 3 pounds this week, and weighed in this morning at 161lbs!!!  It’s very encouraging, and now I just have to tone up so I look 161lbs instead of 171lbs 🙂  Hopefully it worms up outside soon so I can go walking with the boys during the day.

Tackle It Tuesday – Decluttering The Main Floor

Standard

As I sit here at my computer and look around at my house, the thing that stresses me out is the clutter.  It’s organized for the most part, but it’s still there, so today I’m gonna work my butt off to get rid of it.  Wish me luck, cuz this is going to be a big tackle! 🙂

Tackle It Tuesday – Nursery Theme Continued

Standard

So my tackle last week was to re-theme the nursery from Winnie the Pooh to Zoo Babies.  Unfortunately I didn’t get too far, so I’m picking it back up this week.  Here are my steps:

  1. finish tracing all pictures
  2. color and cut out animals
  3. place colorings on wells
  4. get some animal teddies (Friday)
  5. get some animal bedding (Friday)

Although I can’t completely finish today, I’ll be able to at least make the theme obvious with pictures.  I’ll post a pic when I’m done.

Minimalist Monday – The Nursery…again

Standard

Yes, I’m attacking the nursery again 😀

Since this is the room where my 2 babies sleep, I just can’t stop picking at it.  It will never be exactly the way I want it, partly because what I want seems to change pretty often, but I’ll definitely keep working on it.  Today my plan was to rearrange the room, but it works well this way, so I just decluttered and tidied up.  I just forgot to vacuum before taking the picture.
