Snowed In!!

We have been snowed in for two days now and looks like tomorrow as well. Smyrna got 3-4" of snow and ice yesterday. Seems like every thing is closed due to the bad weather and the streets are covered in ice. Last night we had chili for dinner and today we played in the snow and took naps. Here are some pictures of us snowed in.

We tried to order a pizza for dinner tonight and the wait was 2 hours. So we cooked chicken nuggets and vegetables instead.

Hope everyone has a great snow day

Dancing Queen

My YMCA zumba class was asked to dance to 1 song at the MTSU women's basketball half time show. Of course I said YES!! We had about 40 women from our Smyrna YMCA come to dance. Zumba is a Latin dance class I have been attending for about 1 year. I love it and it's a great workout. I contribute a lot of my weight loss to Zumba. Here are a few pictures of us on the basketball court.

I had a BLAST!! I hope we get asked to Zumba again.

Not many days like today

Here is what we did today and it was wonderful

Hour 1

Hour 2

I love this sweet boy

Landon took a 3 hour nap today and this is what his hair looked liked afterwards. I just love all those curls

We normally don't get Saturdays just to stay in our PJ's and lay around the house, but today we had NOTHING to do. We didn't even get up and go to the gym this morning. I'm not even going to cook tonight. ;o) I just LOVE days like today.

Have a great weekend.

The BIG 40!!

It took me 12 months, but I did it. I lost 40 lbs and still going.

This is me in March 2009. I was 2 months into Weight Watchers

Me tonight after my weigh-in. 40.8 lbs lighter

I use to have to lay on the bed to squeeze into these size 16 jeans.

My goal is to lose a total of 45 lbs. I have 3.2 lbs more to go till I can reach that goal and then 6 weeks of weight maintenance. After those 6 weeks I stay within my goal weight I can become a lifetime member of Weight Watchers. I have more self confidence and more energy without those 40 lbs. I never want to see them again!!

Did you notice my newly painted green wall and curtains? Jason and his dad painted our living room on Saturday. We are in the process of looking at LCD flat screen TVs to go over our mantle. Anyone have any suggestions?

Discovery Center

Jason and I had the day off today for MLK day, so we decided to have a family fun day. We went to our local children's museum, The Discovery Center. They had free admission today due to the holiday. Landon had a BLAST!! We just let him GO. He ran circles around us today. He has more energy than we do. Here are a few pictures from our day together.

Landon had his 18 month wellness exam this morning. Here are the stats and what he is up to these days.

Size 6 1/2 to 7 shoe
You have 14 teeth. Two more are on their way
You are getting up at 7am-7:30am every morning
Down to 1 nap a day. Usually 1-2 hours at a time
Your new thing is to empty out cabinets and crawl into them
You LOVE to open and close doors
When you don't get your way you throw a little tantrum
You still love your binky. That is the only item you are attached to
When we say where is your head, feet, nose and belly you point to them. We are working on ears
When I ask you to get your socks, shoes or coat you bring them to mommy
You wave bye-bye to Zoey every time we leave the house
With all the toys in the house your true love in still the vacuum and broom (a man after my own heart) I just wish your daddy felt the same way ;o)

I cant believe my "baby" is 18 months old.

We LOVE you Landon!!

This is Landon's new hiding spot. He loves to crawl into the kitchen cabinet and open and close the door. Isn't he the cutest little man?

It has been so COLD here in Smyrna. We have had temps in the twenties and snow. Cold weather and snow equals a bowl of

Jason made us a pot of homemade chili. It was so good. I love cheese, sour cream and Frito scoops with my chili. What's your favorite cold weather food?

Landon's 18 month wellness exam is friday morning. I can't believe my baby is 18 months. That means in 6 months he will be 2 years old. You know how fast 6 months goes? Seems like he was just born yesterday.

Have a good week!!

Let it snow, Let snow, Let it snow

We finally got our snow day here in TN. Schools were closed on Thursday and Friday. The snow came in on Thursday afternoon and has been here since. Jason, Landon and I ventured outside this morning. It's suppose to stay below freezing through the weekend so maybe I will get another snow day on Monday. Here are a few pictures of the Warf's in the snow.
