Fun with Ice and a Trampoline

So this weekend was WONDERFUL! Oh my, the weather was just fantastic, both kiddos have sunburnt cheeks! I thought I'd try something fun with them when they weren't expecting it so I dumped a whole container of ice cubes on the trampoline when they were on it. They had a blast LOL

So I got tagged on MySpace the other day so I thought I'd put my reply on my blog as well. I don't expect anyone to reply cuz I'm not tagging anyone!! Just thought you'd want to read it!

Once you have been tagged you have to write a blog with 10 weird, random things, facts, habits, or goals about yourself. At the end choose 10 people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them. Don't forget to leave them a comment (tag, you're it) and to read your blog. You can't tag the person who tagged you. Since you can't tag me back, let me know when you've posted your blog so I can see your answers.

1. I have a weird fear of being surrounded by water. Like in the pet store in the fish section or at Sea World in one of those places where you go thru a tunnel in the shark tank.

2. I can recite the entire movie 'Grease'.

3. I love playing Backgammon.

4. I still love going roller skating with my kids and I can still skate backwards LOL

5. I will never water ski. I grew up with 'Jaws' being my mom's favorite movie…nuff said.

6. I have met almost all of my closest friends online.

7. The first concert I went to was the Bee Gees at McNichols Arena in Denver, July 1979. I remember my dad taking me to buy a new pair of white jeans to wear and that I was pissed they didn't play my favorite song.

8. I have been to a gazillion concerts and have kept all the ticket stubs (including the Bee Gees).

9. I love anything with the scent of vanilla.

10. I am a candle freak, I love to have them burning all the time.

I'm still around...

Hey there, sorry I haven't blogged in a week...not sure where the time went and I dont really have an excuse!

Didn't have the best weigh in this week, I was up 1.25 lbs. Yea I know that's nothing and could totally be water weight so I'm trying not to worry about it too much. Tina did great, she lost 2.5 lbs. We have two weeks left and my goal is to lose 4-5 lbs over those two weeks, that will get me to a 15 lb loss overall.

I went to Jess and Brad's housewarming party last weekend and had a great time. It's always fun to hang out with them and I also got to see some people I hadn't seen in a long time plus got to meet some new people!

My boss is gone for the rest of this week which is WONDERFUL! Granted I do work from home and have only met/seen my boss one time in the 8 months he's been my boss but he can still get on my nerves! It's just kinda nice to not have a stressful few days.

I took Kasey in to the vet this morning, poor baby. She needed some dental care BAD, she had some kickin' breath...ewe. So they are knockin her out and are going to clean the heck outta her teeth. She might have to get some extractions but that will be the worse case scenerio. She also has a few warts (ewe I know) that I am having removed. Then I threw in a nail trim for the heck of it since she'll be out anyways.

Ok since I have been totally random and all over in this blog, I will say adios and have a great Thursday!!!

We've got Braces

So Kyler just got his top braces on today. He chose dark blue bands this time. It's fun because at each appointment he can change them. He decided to have a Blizzard for lunch so he wouldn't have to chew...yea cream cures all!

YAY We got a trampoline!!!

The kids didn't want to get off of it yesterday when they got home from school. I think it's going to be a great investment! Just wanted to blog real quick and add some pictures. It was a cruddy day so once the weather gets warmer, I'll post more fun ones!

I got the additional net part but the kids wouldn't wait to jump so I added it after!

Week 5 Challenge Update

Hello strangers!

Well they were really late in posting the totals for last week but I finally saw it this morning. Tina and I took 3rd for the week!! Lost by .2% but oh well!!!

Now this week is going to be another story...ugh! I weighed in this morning and gained .25 lbs which yes, it isn't horrible but I hate that I gained anything. Damn PMS...LOL Poor Tina, she was out of town for work all last week and now has her 'friend' visiting so she thinks she's gained like 2 lbs. We'll find out tonight when we go for the challenge class. I told her 'hey just think, next week we will have a huge loss'!! haha!

Week 4 Challenge Update

Not too shabby of a week for us! I lost 2.5 lbs and Tina lost 2!!

When I hit the gym this morning, the group totals hadn't been updated. I'm so curious how we did percentage wise this week since we both had a good week!!

The challenge class last night was actually enjoyable! Usually the trainer has us work the same part of the body in sets of threes. So we'd repeat the same 2-3 moves for 3 sets. That gets boring, especially if say your doing lunges and you hate lunges, knowing you have to do 2 more sets after that first painful set really sucks!!!

Well last night we did things for 1 minute each. So for example, we did push ups for 1 minute, then we'd do left leg lunges for 1 minute, then right leg lunges for 1 minute...are you getting the picture? The best part of it was that we didn't repeat anything!!! Once we suffered through that 1 minute, we were done!!! I think the worst one was when we had to do a squat against the wall and hold it for that horrific 60 seconds. So picture yourself going to sit down in a chair against a wall, but yet that chair wasn't there....can you say oh my lord my thighs are going to burn off??? Whew!!!

Ok and another note, I'm kinda diggin the elliptical finally. I used to curse that damn thing but now I can get on it and knock out 30 minutes no problem. I'm pretty proud of myself for that!!! It's good to change up the cardio routine! I'm just waiting for spring so I can get outside! I'd love to actually be able to run at some point. I've never been much of a runner but would like to work myself up to do that. Baby steps right????

April Fool's Day

Well so far so good....nobody has 'fooled' me yet!!!

Had a fantastic weekend with the family! My oldest nephew Justin wasn't able to make it because he couldn't get the time off work so we were bummed about that. Mike, Patty and Nick got to my house about 1pm on Friday afternoon. I had gotten Kyler out of school early that day but Miranda had state assesment tests so she couldn't. We grabbed a quick bite to eat at El Tapitio, the BEST mexican place in town. Then the boys all hung out while Patty and I ran to get Miranda and then get her hair cut. Friday night we headed up to Grandma Patti's. Had a huge sketti dinner and just visited.

Saturday we decided to go to Zonkers which is an indoor amusement park in a way. There are a few rides then a gazillion token machines to feed your money into just to get a plastic toy for 123870928347213 tickets. haha! Well not THAT bad but you know what I mean. Nick had a blast riding everything. Here are some pictures!

Saturday night we had a big steak dinner at Grandma's....YUM! Then sadly they had to leave Sunday morning but like I said, we had a great time just hanging out!!! It's always good to see them! I'm hoping to take the kiddos out to Colorado for a visit this summer!!!
