41 Days Till VACATION!!!



Time is flying by! I would normally be happy with this, but I’m NOWHERE where I wanted to be with my weight loss. I’m down 17 pounds, which is GREAT but somehow I don’t feel any lighter then I was when I first started this diet. ---- However...... this morning I was able to put my wedding ring on for the first time in a LONG time..

--- Anyway... Since I haven't posted anything in a few days, I thought I woud share some more Disneyland Pictures with you. There are from our 2008 vacation. I hope you enjoy.







This is a picture of the kids opening their gifts from Tinkerbell. Let’s just say she went WAY out that year.




SIL, Niece, and Dad’s ex fiancé on the Tea Cups. ((I’ve never been on this ride))


Brother and Nephew on Dumbo

Dad and Nephew


SIL and Niece Alyssa




That's all for now, more to come later.

Ahhh... the little girls clothing saga... the jump from 6 to 7.. not only is that a large jump... You're right there is a big size jump and not only that you're probably going to find some issues with some of the styles...

It's kind of like size 6 (in some cases) ends the cute little girl styles and all of the styles 7 and up are like mini teenagers... not always but you're going to find it a whole new world... you have to shop more carefully...

Cute cute monster inc hoodie...

Ahhh... love Disneyland...

It's sooooo frustrating....... This is what I get to look forward to for the rest of my life. It's so hard finding anything cute. I can't believe how "****ty" some clothing items are too. Short, Shorts for a 6 year old. What the heck. Then whenever my husband does the laundry, her clothes go from too big to TOO small... I've told him over and over to let me to the kids laundry. A for effort though.

*all caught up*

As far as the AoA/CSR question, I'd definitely go for AoA! All the photos I've seen thus far are super cool, and I think your kids would love it!

CONGRATULATIONS on the 17 pounds lost! That's fantastic, girl! So proud of you!

I know what you mean with the little kid's clothes. I've noticed the trend for little girl's shorts getting shorter and shorter and shorter. I especially can't handle the ones with the writing across the bootie.

Love all the photos of DL! Can I ask why you've never been on the teacups?

I'm leaning towards AoA too. We're staying at POR Royal Room for Reya and the LM for her as well... So I think it's only fair we stay somewhere that Jayden would like, so I think we might do the CARS suite. He's obessed.

Reya received a bikini for her birthday.... It's actually pretty cute, but I still feel weird about her wearing it. I hope people don't judge me for letting my 6 year old wearing a bikini. I wanted to buy her a new bathing suit before the trip, but of course you can't find any out here in Colorado right now.

I'm so glad to have you back.

RAMBLING and pictures …………………………………….

37 days until VACATION!!!


Before I know it, we’ll be leaving. Time is really flying by now. It actually doesn’t feel real, and hard to believe I’ll be able to leave everything behind in 5 weeks. We need this vacation SOOOO bad.

Of course I’ve already started packing odds and ends. So when I found this online the other day, I had to laugh. It’s me and my husband 100%




I also bought Reya a cute dress for our trip. She loves it.


I'm trying to get a bunch of planning done today. Jayden is refusing to take a nap right now, so things are slow. Until then I thought I would post some more pictures for your viewing pleasure.


My free DREAM fastpasses …. Sadly we never had to use them because the crowds were so low. So neat getting them though.


Reya and I on DUMBO


City Hall


Logan, Reya, and Alyssa


My Brother Chad trying to pull the sword from the stone


Peter Pans Flight…. I’m so excited for Jayden to experience this ride for the first time.


Lori and Alyssa


Pretty picture inside the castle

Reya's new dress is so pretty! I know she's going to feel just like a little princess in it! Can't wait to see pics of that.

35 DAYS!!!!!!


I technically could have started using my countdown calendar 5 days ago, but I have to wait another week, so I can fool Reya! So excited!!


I thought I would share some Downtown Disney Pictures with you from our 2010 Trip.



Jaydens 1st Mickey Ears..... Actually, we didn't buy it, but HOW cute! I miss him being so small.

Awwww... Jayden's little head... too cute... the mouse ears are so big... (I love baby's heads ... in a sweet way... it sounds weird when you say it... but the top of their heads, that little bit of hair... maybe it's an instinctive maternal thing???

I think little girls can be really sweet in bikinis - Ems wore some... I think its the style of the suit -a one piece can look more "mature" than a bikini depending on its style... you'll find cute appropriate stuff for Reya... You're just going to have to look harder now... little girls only have a short time to be little girls and they have the rest of their lives to be women... I think they should be able to enjoy and embrace their girlhood... it'll be fine cause your looking out for her...

btw big CONGRATS on the wait loss ... 17 lbs is a huge accomplishment... Are you doing your own thing or following a program...?

(I'm older than you and I have some weight loss to attend to...... I don't mind getting older and I don't need to be the mom that fits into their 17 year olds clothes but I do want to get older healthy and in shape... I think women can be beautiful at all ages... it just takes a little more work and attention when you aren't 17 any more... )

But that is awesome- 17 lbs... so GOOD for you...

I loved the dress for Reya, too cute!
And Jayden in the Mickey ears is so sweet. I sure miss mine being small like that too.
Loving all of the Disneyland pics as I have never been there. It's never a bad thing to get a Disney fix though. I'm getting excited for you- hope you get everything done and can relax soon.
Congrats on the 17lb weight loss too- that's awesome! You can certainly feel proud of that.

Talk to you again soon,
Carla

I totally know what you mean about babies heads. lol. I miss EVERYTHING about him being a baby. The way he smells, the way he would hold my finger with his fist, the cute little noises he would make. I especially loved how he would stay where I put him. My BFF and I had breakfast this morning and were talking about having kids. My husband and I really are on the fence about having another baby. A big part of me wants another one so bad, but the expense of having another child is overwhelming. We're going to have to make a decision REAL soon though. I said I didn't want to have anymore kids after 35, and I turn that next summer. tick tock, tick tock!

I'm taking advantage of Reyas innocence as long as I can. I only give it a couple years and she's going to be over the whole princess, flowery dresses, and hair bows. Brings a tear to my eye when I think about how much she's changed in the last few years. If you notice the downtown disney pictures with my DD and my nieces.... They're all into the "vampire" phase and Taylor Lautner and josh Hutchenson (sp) guys. It seemed like it happened overnight with them. It was all about tinkerbell one day and boys and vampires the next. I'm trying to hold onto Reya for as long as possible.

Thanks for the congrats.... I hate to admit, but I gained a couple pounds back. It amazing how slow it comes off and how fast it comes back.
