How I Spent My Summer...

Or the last few days of it at least....

-On Monday, we got to finally see Kaitlin, Jesse, and Jaxon! Since before they were born, we have joked that Jaxon and Lizzy are betrothed, so that we could all actually be family. So we about died when Lizzy kept trying to pet his face and hold his hand. She's been around a lot of babies and hasn't done that before, so it was hilarious. I'll have to try to get a picture of it soon.

-I have officially completed Level 1 of the 30 Day Shred ten times, and even with actual weights instead of canned food. I didn't quite do 10 consecutive days, but I was close. Today, I move on to Level 2, and I am nervous! I've done it once or twice before, and it is KILLER.

-I finished reading The Help, and it was fantastic. I loved every second of it, and would recommend it in a heartbeat. I'm now reading a book called The Girls, about conjoined twins. It is really interesting!

-We've had a couple of weeks off from softball, and we're going to start the fall league here pretty soon. We were hoping to move down to the C league, but we're still in the B league. Here's hoping we actually win a game, and not just because the other team doesn't show up! 

-For my birthday, one of the things my parents gave us was a gift certificate to go to the movies. Any suggestions? I hardly even know what's playing right now...

-The band has been busy this summer. A couple of weeks ago, they had the opportunity to play at an old rock quarry that has been renovated and turned into an outdoor amphitheater for concerts. It's a really beautiful setting:

 The band has several more concerts coming up in the next few weeks--it's a busy (and fun!) time!


  1. I would suggest the new Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg movie! I'm not sure what it's called, but it looks good. Or Eat Pray Love!

  2. You absolutely MUST see Inception. It is amazing, mind-blowing and thought-provoking. My DH and I saw it for date night and are even contemplating seeing it again for our next date night. It was THAT good ;)

  3. Inception's freaking awesome.

  4. I'm with Hilary Lane-the Will Ferrell movie looks hilarious! Sounds like you've been busy busy busy!

  5. Just wanted to chime in and say I'm doing the 30 Day Shred, too. I'm on day 23...level 3. It's been kicking my butt, but I like it!

    Like you, I haven't been able to lose the baby all!! As in, not a pound since Alice was a week old. Awesome. I got on the scale today and have lost 3 pounds, which is great for me since I haven't changed my eating habits in fear of decreasing my supply.

    I guess all of this is to say you're not alone. :) Thanks for writing about your struggles with weight and breastfeeding. I appreciate your honesty and openness. You're a great mommy!

  6. Go see Inception if only for the new warm fuzzy feelings Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives me now that he looks like a grown-up. Seriously, it felt odd to find him attractive after the old 3rd Rock from the Sun days, but apparently fist fights on ceilings in zero gravity do it for me.
