So brace yourself, because I am going to get REALLY personal here. Fact: I have about 20 icky pounds to lose from my indulgent 9 months of pregnancy. So I feel OK most days, but Sunday is another story. Actually since I was a teenager, AS I AM GETTING READY FOR CHURCH, I have been tortured with negative thoughts about my body and my looks to the point where i dont feel like going to church anymore. That sneaky devil is such a JERK! Today was just another Sunday of feeling gross. Dont get me wrong, I definately DO NOT dress to impress when i go to church. But I want to feel okay. So I have decided after 15 years of the devil's crap I have made a decision...and you may think I am crazy. Go ahead. But i think I might narrow it down between 2 outfits for Sunday and just alternate every other week. I could honestly give a flying crap if anyone thinks i am weird but i just want to win this battle and not have it be an issue anymore. I would rather spend my time reading something uplifting than playing musical outfits. So I will see if it helps. Just the thought of eliminating the process of deciding what to wear is sooo great! I am such a freaking genius.

Matt might just kill me for posting this but you have to give the kid props for wearing a Keith Sweat t-shirt ! This picture was taken while visiting San Francisco and i guess there were several people from the Oakland area who gave him props too. Thanks to my older sister Catherine, who blasted such music from her bedroom, I became very familiar with these artisits. Other music that blared through her bedroom wall was Al B Sure, Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, New Edition, Run DMC and Bel Biv Devoe. I am laughing just typing this!

Okay, this is the 2nd night I have put Reese down for the night at 9pm and she has gotten up at 12:30, 4 and 6. She is WIDE AWAKE at 6am and I am about to lose my mind. Last night is the first time I have gotten frustrated with her. The fun part is that our bedroom is downstairs and she is upstairs. And yes, i have been naughty and nursed her. But i just feel like I cant do this anymore. Should I let her cry it out? Any suggestions?

We let the girls play with Jax our lizard while we worked on a project in our basement ( *which we are finishing by the way, which means lots of extra space so all y'all can come crash at our house...) And as I walked into the room Leah was dangling him by the tail. You know, just moving him from one room of the doll house to another. Poor, poor Jax.
Then I found them in their room drawing pictures of coconut trees and hanging them from their bunkbed with dental floss and tape. My kids could think of a million things to do with dental floss..except for floss their teeth.

I am SLOWLY making improving to my house. i FINALLY am extremely pleased with my bed. The pictures dont do it justice. And you should try sleeping in it! It is SOOOO comfy. I know there are far more serious things to vote for these days..but people please..flower or no flower pillow?
i also realized WHY I have not put many things on my walls. First of all, I must luuurrvve it and it has to be hung perfectly. So i tried hanging a shelf today. Yes, a SHELF ..and i almost punched a hole in the wall while mumbling a few expletives. It was not a pretty sight. But I love my start on the family pics!
