Quick Update on Us...

Things have been quite hectic around here lately... but we've had SOO many blessing in the past week.

I've been booking away some sessions.. a total blessing in its self. I've got anywhere from 2-3 a weekend.. just what I want and it doesn't over do it.. plus still leaves some family time too.

Friday we got some good news with Dean and his wakeboard camp.. but not going to go into that until something is solid. He did pick up another sponsor for his Wakeboarding though, so that's pretty awesome too!

After fighting with Verizon about our phone that they were having to replace every like 3 weeks we finally got someone on the phone who understood and pulled some strings to get our upgrade date changed and we are now proud owners of the DROID!!! and we LOVE them!!

Bella (our new puppy) is doing GREAT!! After a few days of accidents and kennel time she's been on a pretty good winning streak here lately (knock on wood). Her and Bailey are playing more and more.. though Bailey still doesn't like her to get too close to her, lol, it's pretty funny!

Dean ordered my new car a couple of weeks ago and we had the oil changed and inspection done the last couple of days since it would be in in about 1.5 weeks... and actually found out today that it's already at the dealer!! So should be getting it at the beginning of next week :)

Our "Life style Change" is going GREAT as well!! I haven't been keeping up with Dean's numbers.. but I know he's still loosing. I'm actually down 7 lbs from the beginning of the month and down 4 from the start of our diet... woo hoo!!!

Zane is a total trip these days!! You never know what he's going to do or get into any more :) We went for his 15 month check up on Monday (still can't believe he's that old!!) and he weighed 28 lbs (90%) and was 33.5 inches tall (97%)!!! He's got a vocab level of a 2.5 - 3 year old according to the doctors... and he's reading.. when HE wants to.. you can't ask him to do it, lol! He amazes us more and more every day and he's always doing something new.

I guess that's it for now... I'm trying to get back in the swing of blogging while balancing everything else, lol!

Grilled Tuna....

Our first dinner on The Perfect 10 Diet...

Grilled Tuna
Spinach, Mushrooms and Feta Cheese



This one actually blew me away. I was expecting the Tuna to taste a bit fishy... but it was almost like eating pork chops.. but better!! The spinach I still have to adjust to (I'm not big on cooked veges) but I was def impressed with it too!

So... Night 1... SUCCESS!!!

The Perfect 10



So... this is Dean and I's new adventure... and thankfully after all the holidays and that chocolate from V-day.. Thought we still have Easter, lol! Anyways, I have been busting my butt since Zane was 6 weeks old to get this weight off.. and well... I've gotten absolutely NO WHERE! I went to the doctor yet again and she told me to go out and get this book. All I could think was.. well what fad diet is this going to be? Well.. let me just say I was way off base!

This book helps break down just why certain foods are bad for us... why they cause the health problems and diseases that they do... and how they really do effect every aspect of our health. I always knew that certain things were most certainly bad for me.. pasta, soda, sweets... but never could completely understand it.. so I just decided not to care.. and if I did enjoy them.. just do it in moderation.

After reading this book I'm absolutely disgusted with the regulations our government passes about our food... how we think things are safe when in all reality they are far from it. This book made me want no more of the bad food I thought was good!

I truly believe that everyone should at least read this book... I know that everyone isn't going to want to do what this book tells you to do... it's hard! especially because it's not something that is readily available in everyday life... this is something you have to make the decision to do and just go for it! and well.. that's what we've done :)

I'm super excited about this step in our life. I'm excited to teach Zane these steps and why we take them. I feel so much more informed about things that I USE to put in my mouth.

I'll be posting lots of things about this new diet and how it is working for us.. so to be continued.....

Happy Valentines Day!

We had a pretty slow paced V-day. We actually ended up over sleeping for church.. as a matter of fact Dean let me sleep till about noon!! I woke up to pretty roses and subway :) we then just hung around the house and did some much needed chores and enjoyed each other and some quiet time. We ended the night with spaghetti dinner and watched "Couples Retreat". I had a wonderful Valentine's Day... Hope everyone's was just as Great!


Here is Dean's V-day gift... handmade chocolate :)







My flowers... and I still have one gift one the way :)



And little man's V-day...

Girls Night....

Well there were suppose to be 5 of us.. but it ended up just being myself, Kim and Pam. We decided instead of the normal dinner and a movie that we would skip the dinner and do 2 movies :) I can't begin to tell you just how excited I get about girls night!! I get to dress like an adult, talk to adults and just tend to myself, lol! Anyways.. no pics for this post, but we had a wonderful time! We seen "Valentine's Day".. GREAT movie!! and then Pam decided to go home... while Kim and I headed to Starbucks to get something to drink and just hang out between movies. Then back to the theater to see "When In Rome"... another GREAT movie!! I really had a totally blast and can't wait for the next one!

Something Special...

So as you seen a few weeks back Dean got a tattoo to commemorate Zane. I've always wanted a tattoo but was always SO scared that after getting I might change my mind.. I mean I change my hair like every 3-6 months.. I couldn't do that with a tattoo.. not to mention I'm TERRIFIED of needles!!! Well tonight we went back over to have Raymond do a little touch up on some of Dean's color... and once again I found myself wanting to do something like Dean for Zane. And I DID IT!!!! It's not much (literally the size of a quarter! lol!).. and you can't see it.. but I know it's there. I decided to get a Z on the right side of my c-section scar.. and when/if we have a second their first initial will go on the other side :) Here are just a couple of pics (my camera was at home since I didn't intend on doing this at all!!) :)





Zane's new word today... Bella

A trip to Savannah

So Kim and I were going to make a day trip to Savannah yesterday but there ended up being a 90% chance of rain so we decided to post pone our trip for a while. And well needless to say it only lasted a day, lol. Today we made our trip in and while I did bring my camera I was soo busy just looking around and enjoying everything I took only a few pictures (literally!). We walked along the river and then hit up some shops and of course caught dinner at Paula Dean's restaurant Lady & Sons. Here are the FEW pics I took, lol! I can't wait to make a trip back.. and the next time I fully intend to come back with LOTS of pics!!!

Us in front of Lady and Sons...


Little man fell asleep RIGHT before dinner...


New word for today... Jacket
