top ten reason it is good to not have A/C in the heat of the summer

We unfortunately will not be fixing our air conditioner until after the summer. It is going to cost us between $1500-$3000 to fix.

10. Doesn't matter if you forget to shut the doors (cold air won't be getting out).

9. You can get ready faster in the morning---No need to blow dry your hair.

8. Let the kids sleep in the family room and call it camping.

7. We won't be having any visitors as no one else is crazy to live without a/c.

6. Becoming an expert on opening and closing windows so the house will keep cool.

5. Not as hungry when you are hot--good way to loose weight!

4. Saving energy for all the green people--I am doing my part! HA--not on purpose!

3. You get to have a fan in every room. It is fun to talk into it and hear your voice when it vibrates.

2. Sweating helps you to loose weight!

and the # 1 reason it is good to NOT have A/C in the summer

1. Save money on the Electric bill so we can send our daughter to private school!

no a/c and a sick boy

So Lil Noah has had a stomach virus since Monday. The a/c went out yesterday to add to the ordeal. I am hopeful that today is the last day that he will be sick. Thankfully it isn't the hottest day of the year and we are surviving until the a/c guy comes out this evening to fix our problem. I will let you know if Noah isn't better soon. I just really don't want to have to get him some fluids. So he is eating Popsicles (thanks Aunt V for the advice) and so far so good.

On a side note--Maggie has super curly hair when the humidity strikes. So I guess she will be having a bad hair day until we can fix the a/c problem. I think she can thank her grandma/moppy/nini for that one. :)

Our trip to Springfield, MO

16 weeks

So I have been on WW for 16 weeks. At 16 weeks they give you a charm for your key chain (I earned this when I lost my 10%). I don't have much more to report. I am really hoping to hit 25 lbs next week. I only gained .4 lbs this past week with going on vacation. I don't think that is too bad considering we drove for 14 hours there and back....that is a lot of fast food along the way. I tried to make the best choices possible. So I now need to loose 1.4 to make my next goal!!!

1. We had a great party for Nana
2. I chopped 5 inches off my hair.
3. I got to meet a legend, Billie Jean King, and had my head cut off in the picture in the paper!! HA!! I made the front page of the sports section!!! Not really only my body!!!
4. Kids got to see their Aunt Niki who spoiled them rotten and now I have to de-Niki-fy them!!
5. Slight weight gain +.6 not bad for being out of town. I have really eaten what I want for the most part. I did fit into a size 10 though!!!
6. Kids got to meet their cousin Curt. he is a cutie and I will post lots of pictures when I get home!!!

Whoa that is big!


This is a caterpillar that Noah and the kids found outside in the garden. Noah noticed that one of the tomato plants was looking bare, well to his surprise...this is what he saw. If you haven't read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. You are missing out. This is a great book about how a caterpillar eats his way through the days of the week and by the end he is so full that he makes a cocoon and than turns into a beautiful butterfly. It is a great book. I highly recommend it.

ok so I am 1 pound away from 25!

I have to say I kinda hit a lull these last few weeks. So I was happy to have lost another 2 lbs this week. We are travelling at the end of next week so I am hoping to loose the 1 pound I need to hit 25. Than my next goal will be 30. I hope that I can get close to that goal by August 3rd. Brittany of Brittany Erwin Photography is taking some pictures of me with the kids. I will be excited to see a good weight lost by that point. Wish me luck.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July

We had a great 4th of July! Here is a slide show of our day. We started our day at the Marietta Square Parade. We than drove to Roswell and visited with granddad and Ms. Dee for a day at the pool. This pool is amazing. They have 2 water slides, 2 diving boards and a great big pool and than they have a great 0 depth entry with a mushroom that has water falling over the top. We all had a great time.
