Last week was spent getting ready for our subdivision garage sale. Ayla had a ton of fun. She was my little helper, she wanted to take and give out the money! We also baked cookies and sold them, so she was in charge of that. She had plenty of toys to keep her occupied, I was pleasantly surprised that she did not get upset when we sold her toys! Of course I did tell her that we would take the money and buy her "bigger" toys, so that may have had something to do with it!
We have also spent many days doing this. The weather has been beautiful lately so we take advantage of it as much as we can!
My mom just retired from her job of 20 years (maybe more) so I am very happy for her! She has worked hard all her life raising her children as a single mother and she deserves to relax now and not worry about working. She only lives a few minutes from us, so I am sure we will be seeing a lot of her this Summer! Her work had a retirement lunch for her a couple of weeks ago so my sister and I were able to go and be there with her. We love you and are so proud of you! Of course Ayla had to open all of her gifts!
I guess that's it for now. Oh and I started a diet, it will be two weeks on Tuesday. I lost four pounds last week but have not weighed myself for several days. I was weighing myself everyday and getting upset because it was not changing so I just decided to put the scale away..lol. I am on a 1200 calorie a day diet and I have been going to kickboxing 2-3 nights a week as well as walking 2-3 miles every night. I am really determined this time and I hope I can lose at least 25 pounds by the end of August when we go to the beach. I put on an extra 20 pounds since Ayla and Brennan and It has been very depressing for me. I am hardly in any pictures with the kids because I hate seeing how terrible I look. Anyway, hopefully this will all change....SOON!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
