Cookie Party!!!

Cory & Christy, this is for you!!
Do you know what kind of cookie this is?
Yep, if you guessed a Coffee Cookie, you are correct!!
Isn't it cute??
It hangs out on your cup until you're ready to devour it!!
That's awesome!
These are for my Peighton!!
Koko would use them to write her book...
she will write a book one day; you just wait!
Best seller I know it!

This is a really cool picture of colorful sugar cookies on sticks****
I'n not quite sure I read what all was in this cookie, but i'd eat it!
These above are what I am wishing for for my Birthday... Hint, Hint! If anyone out there is listening! I want a rainbow cake! Not only are they pretty but they look like something I would eat if I weren't on this silly diet!
These would be wonderful for a little ones
Birthday Party-- with a lollipop stick sticking out of it!
And these cupcakes are really, really gorgeous!
I love cupcakes!
I love cupcakes with frosting!
I love cupcakes with pretty shades of pink frosting!
I love SUGAR!!!!!!

Okay I think that it for my sugar splurge for the day!
Hope you all have SWEET dreams!!

Till next time Lov-lees!

TrimHCG Diet

Day 4
Tuesday, April 20th
Broiled Cod
Steamed Broccoli

I didn't really eat the fish b/c I didn't like it!! Cod is not my FAVORITE fish! Traded my protein of fish for 1/2 cup of fat-free cottage cheese. Add a little salt and pepper, presto chango! Much better lunch...

The following photo is what I deal with on a daily basis:
Yes, this is my beautiful Peighton eating a powdered doughnut. Completely unfair!!
You may be asking where she got the doughnut...
The obvious answer is of course me, and you would be correct!
The answer to a HAPPY home, for me, is HAPPY children!!

Some of you may say spoiled, but no, I'll stick to my guns and scream HAPPY!!


I forgot to take a picture of our supper. I fixed meatballs and zucchini with tomato sauce.
It was so good and I was so hungry. We ate all the evidence of this yummy meal, so next time* I fix it I will take a photograph to show you.

*Even Konleigh and Peighton ate this meal; it might become a regular in this house hold.

For my second fruit of the day I baked an apple with cinnamon and stevia sprinkled on it.
I felt like I was cheating! It was fun!
Oh yeah, I lost 4 more pounds!
That puts me at 186...

Till next time Lov-lees!

TrimHCG Diet

Day 1-2
Saturday, April 17th & Sunday, April 18th
So I haven't posted a lot about this diet yet but I have been strong and steady!
the first 2 days are all about stuffing your face.
I did that part really well.

Day 3:
Monday, April 19th
Chicken Salad
1 Melba Toast

Broiled Tilipia
Steamed Greenbeans
1 Melba Toast

These meals were actually very good. A little lemon juice can go a long way with taste. I really could've used a double stuffed Oreo with a tall glass of milk*...
I did resist! It was hard!

*( This is not from my kitchen-
just had to find a good visual!)
at this point I have lost 1 pound, but still hopeful it will be more!!
Current weight: 190

Til tomorrow Lov-lees!

Party at the Edwards!!

Saturday Night we had a party for the sake of having a party!! IT WAS FUN!!!!!!! I love hanging with Billy & Cory.

These are the peppers I made. Don't they look so good?

Christy- pronounced Chrissy by my children, Is doing a great job of wrangling the babies while I made the peppers shown above!!
Brynlee is such a fine little girl! She is actually a very good poser!

So, this picture, well, sweet Cory was teaching Peighton about Strawberry Margaritas. This was the tequila part of the class. It's never too early to start learning is it!?!

Just Kidding!!

Cory was making Strawberry Margaritas. Peighton was a very studious pupil. Very helpful when it came to pouring. It was really just so cute.

Cory did explain that you have to be "21" to drink anykind of alcohol. Peighton told Cory, "Konleigh is 21, she can have some!" Ummm, no!

I love that kid. She is just too sweet. Trying to get her sister a free drink!

The girls ended the night with a game of WaHoo!! It was fun... everyone had a helper!!

Thanks for the good times Cory & Billy! We love you guys so much and are very thankful to have you in our lives. You are unreplaceable!!

Jake, Kasey, Konleigh, Peighton, Adelyn & Briar

Find My Balance Friday

the BAD:
Step is the ultimate class for me! It is truely a love/hate relationship. It's hard. I feel like I have two left feet. I sweat a lot!! I get turned around. I feel like everyone is looking at me. That's the worst. People looking at me while I try to lose all the poundage that is sitting on my hips, thighs and tummy.

the GOOD:
I LOVE STEP!! Our teachers are awesome. I really love Rachel! I Love that she calls us TEAM! I love that even though I am tired and sweaty, I am energized and ready to take on the world. I love the GOOD, makes the BAD worth putting up with!!

Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend! We are enjoying Bax's baseball game saturday and then a good old fashioned cook-out afterwards!!

Till next time Lov-lees!

My kids who sleep in the floor...

Peighton, sweet Peighton, why can't you stay in your new bed that is now almost a year old and just sleep. Is the floor really that much more comfortable?

Yes, as a side note, she is in a tank top and her sweet yellow panties. That's all she would wear. Until of course Konleigh got home and she had to get dressed so she could go play outside with her.

Adelyn, sweet Adelyn. Thank you for finally going to sleep . Even though you are laying in the floor with your toys. whatever makes you comfortable is fine with me!

Yes this fabulous, hunk of a man was the "bad boy best friend" that did everything wrong, which of course only made you want him more! Okay, so i am a little infatuated but I am the oldest child and usually get what I want and i think I might just want him... hehehe! A girl can dream, right??

Beth-Annie::: Senior 2010

This is my beautiful, young, not so little any more cousin, Bethanie. She gave me the pleasure of letting me take her Senior pictures this week. I had so much fun. The photography bug has really bitten me! Please remember this is my actual first adventure on the photography scene, so be gentle!
