Girls night out..... with our babies

Last night Carter and I went to Gloria's at the Harbor with TIffany and her two boys and Amy. We had so much fun! Carter was such a good boy and loved watching Weston and Peyton be big boys. He got a hold of Tiffany's Lemon and I just had to share the pictures with all of you.

Oh this looks like it might be good.......
umm Mommy what is this called........
I am not so sure about this.......................

ya mommy I will not have this again! Then he throws it on the floor for the waiter to later say "OH did the baby not like the lemon?"

Blog Hopping....

This week has been crazy and it is only Tuesday! Ryan has had to be at work everyday by 5am so he has left the house by 4:30. I asked him if people are really on the road with him at that time in the morning and to my surprise there are. On Monday when he went to work he tried to leave early in time to go by starbucks and get some coffee WELL to all our surprise it was NOT open yet. Yes I know what you are all thinking.... but it was closed. Lucky for him one of the football players needed a ride to school so he quickly said he would go so he could once again stop by Starbucks and this time get some much needed coffee. They are doing a leadership program with all of the football team before school which is why the early hours are needed.

Carter got the H1N1 shot on his 9 month birthday last week and ever since then he has been soooooo sickly. He has a really runny nose that is also super stopped up and he just can't seem to breath. We are constantly sucking his nose out which is no fun for either of us. He can't seem to sleep well because he can't breath so this is another part to our long week on Tuesday.

On a happier note I went blog hopping off Kelly's Korner today and found some great new blogs to read and hopefully get read by. It was super fun to find somenew blogs and I plan on trying to do this more often. Since Christmas I have really felt the need to write and document our lives more. I think Carter just brings out a different side of me.

Until tomorrow.......... Have a blessed Wednesday

I have really wanted new clothes latley since having Carter and loosing weight. I still have much more to go but I am working on it. I work out with friends 4-5 days a week now moving up from 3 days felt good. I have been watching what I eat and calorie counting.
So Kelly at Kelly's Korner has done a where do you like to shop post and I loved loved looking at where everyone is finding some cute things.

I have now gone to TJ Max and Ross! Boy if you find things you like you will really find a lot.

Where do you like to shop at? I am also waiting to hear about any diet tips you have so bring on the help.

As soon as we get the CD for Carter's 9 month pictures I will post some for you all to see how big he is getting

But you never said this would be easy.............


Praise God for he is always with us.........

This was laid on my heart right now. I just felt the need to share that with all of you. If you are feeling like he is not there and you are alone.... trust that you are not. When you need him the most is when he carrys you through. May God be with you and yours. :)

Today we took Carter to get his 9 month photos. We were not going to be able to get them done because we had only worked into our BABY PHOTO BUDGET to have newborn, 6 month and 1 year photos done.... but lucky for us one of our family members is a photographer and wanted to do pictures for us and we took him on when we really wanted 9 month photos done. It was so much fun and of course Carter did a great job! I don't know what it is with him and a camera but he just loves it and knows what to do when it is in front of him. I am hoping to have the CD by Monday and will post some pictures for you.

Then we went to Cheddars with Ryan's family and YUMMY! Totally not in my diet but it was still good. I was able to plan what I was going to eat and look it up on the website and see how many calories I would be adding to my day. I love that you can do that with pretty much anything now.

What diet tips have worked for you? I have been working out using the WII biggest looser 3-4 days a week and then going to the gym with some of my girlfriends 3 days a week. I am also Calerie counting.

And because I hate to post without pictures here is our Monkey Boy!
