Cleansing, Partying and SLeeping....

So I'm on week 1 of Cleanse part 2. I did the full 21 days in Feb. Didn't feel as cleansed as I did when I did it before, so I'm doing another 21 days. It's much harder this time. I thought it'd be easier since I'm used to it now, but it's just growing old...the salads, shakes, asparagus, loads of water, loads of pills. yea, plus the calories from the fruit are helping keep the weight one. Luckily, it's more healthy than the calories I'd be eatting otherwise. Only 16 more days to go! Ahhh, but I did get into comfortable 10's...so I got me a pair of Miss Me's. LOVE THEM! I still have the tags on them (even though I've worn them twice) because I'm nervous about wearing jeans that cost so much. I bought a pair of $70 Abercrombie's in college, and even though they are too big and ugly on me now, I'll keep them forever. Since then the most I've spent on jeans is probably around $40....so these ones freak me out a bit, but I LOVE THEM!!!!!! um, and i'm pretty sure I look like this model in them. haha

Ahhh, onto more happy daily news. I LOVE having my sister in law here!!! She helps so much with cleaning and the kids and everything, but my favorite is our new found obsession with Ina. The 3 of us are tight! Ina teaches us how to make amazing things, and sometimes we make them, sometimes we wait in hopes that she'll invite us over and make it for us....someday it will happen. OUr new goal in life is to somehow become a friend of Ina Garten.....or to the rest of you, Barefoot Contessa. She's amazing, she'll even tell you that herself. But we've all (including our husbands) voted her best wife ever. Jeffery is one lucky man. If anyone has any connections to Ina, LMK!
Ah, and now to my boys. Jaden was just messin around the other night and put the pacifier in his mouth...but then he really fell asleep. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS KID! Honestly, I need to write more about him, because he's hilarious! Um, oh, the other day we were trying to figure out if the gold medal ice skater was gay (thank goodness he's not) and Jaden asked, "mom, am I gay?" Uh, I almost threw up, and let him know, "no, you're not, you have a girlfriend, and always will!".
And yesterday, I made a chocolate covered angel food cake (thanks Ina!) and Jaden asked, "is that for desssert?". I said, "nope, it's dinner, we're having cookies for dessert!". He asked, "really?!" and I said, "nope, if dad weren't here we would, but he is". SO he went to Jase and said, "dad, can you go on a little trip, just for like 2 hours tonight?" haha,
I
LOVE
Jaden!!!


and of coarse, what would any blog post be w/o a sleeping picture of my night owl. The dude stays up later than any of us at night, so he falls asleep in random places.
And this guy. This is his place when I'm getting dinner ready. I think he's going to start rolling over soon though, but for now, he's my countertop decor


Ah, and last monday was the final weigh in for BIggest Loser #2. I'm down 60lbs since the end of September. I lost 20lbs exactly in the last 8 weeks. Which you would think would be good enough to win...but the winner lost over 35!!!! yea, whatever.


And this last weekend. I'm soo mad I didn't take pictures. I was going to, then my battery was dead, so I charged it, then forgot to take pictures. But we had the Buhr's and John's come up to stay with us because becky and amy both bought into fun businesses so we had parties for them. They both went really well, and I'm hoping to have another one of each later on this year. The kids had an awesome time with all of their friends here. They need to come up more often!!!!

Wow 60 pounds since September that is amazing! Its taken me over a year to loose 60 pounds. How the heck do you drop it so quickly? you must email and tell me your secret.

seriously, just workout 1-2x a day and stick to WW. of coarse, I did about 5pts less than what I was supposed to, but that's how I've always had to do it. And the last 10 I lost with a cleanse. I'm still cleansing, but not still losing...maintaining. So hopeuflly I can drop the final 10 after the cleanse with WW.
