I lost 30 lbs!

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
I lost 30 lbs
Happy Birthday to me!

Ok, so yesterday I was at 29.4 lbs lost and I started thinking that would be cool if I could get to 30 lbs on my birthday! And I did!!!!!

This is a mile stone for me, it has taken a long 5 months and I still have 30 lbs to go, but yeah!!!

So, I haven't posted in almost 10 days. I have been slacking. I told Kyle the next post is going to be about my birthday so he had better make it memorable. j/k :0)

BTW, it has already been a great birthday and i haven't even had my birthday yet! Thank you Kyle, Melissa, my VT Sister Arnold. I am truly blessed to have such a great husband and such dear friends.

Breaking Dawn

Well, I finished it (don't worry mom, I won't give anything from the book away in this post). I can get back to reality and get back to my busy life. The book was really good (thanks Steph for letting me borrow it). It took me a little over a week to read it. I know you Twilight fans are probably thinking that you can't believe it took me that long to read it. But I did have other priorities I just couldn't get out of... Taking care of my family, feeding my family, date night (I just don't think Kyle would have understood if I told him I would rather read then go out on a date with him), church, babysitting. My blog did slack and I haven't watched DOOL since last Wednesday (thank goodness for DVR) because I was reading at night instead of watching DOOL.

Anyway, I am not quite awake this morning because I stayed up to finish the book last night so this is all I can think of to say. Oh, but yes, I thought the book was really good. I won't say anymore because my mom reads my blog and she is now reading the books. I think she is reading the 2nd one right now...

Jaedyn and her "Lays"

Jaedyn has become attached to her "lays" a.k.a. blankets. ALL OF THEM (OK, well she doesn't know about the ones at the top of her closet). But the 8 or so that she has found. This has been for a while now.

When she goes to bed at night, she has to have ALL of them on her, AND I have to count them as I put them on her.

For a while she would bring them every where around the house with her. If she saw me putting them away. She would freak and run and get them and put them by her.

When we go on a trip I would try packing one "lay" and she would run and get the rest and pack them herself. She got away with it one trip. When we went to Grammy's and Grandpa's she took them. In the picture above you can see Grammy holding her with all her lays on. Note the bottle.... Grammy is feeding her a bottle (she doesn't take bottles anymore, although she would still take them if I let her) and Jaedyn is just eating it up (eating up the fact that Grammy is treating her like the little baby). I guess Grammy misses having a grand baby around so the closest one is my 2 1/2 year old daughter. But anyway, that is another story.

Below is a picture of her with all her "lays" here at home, you can't tell from the pictures, but there are at least 7 or 8 lays there.

Oh... notice her little stuffed animals. Her cow, "Chloe" and her other stuffed animal both had to be tucked in the blankets... I mean "lays" too.

Diaper Cake

We had a baby shower here last night for my friend Summer. We had a lot of fun, and she got a lot of nice gifts. Anyway, I wanted to show you the diaper cake I made for her and a little plaque I made for her too. She has two boys and, as you can see from colors in the pictures, is having her 1st girl.
