Two steps step back

Ah I hate thee, let me count the ways...

One step back today. Yesterday I would have been 18 weeks. Can you imagine? I would have been finding out if the little pea was a girl or boy. I'd be showing. Crazy to think how time went by so slow while it was happening, and now its going by so fast.

I try not to dwell, and think I do a pretty damn good job at not being angsty or woe-is-me about things. But sometimes I can't help but think about these milestones.

On a none whinny note. We may finish the picket fence this weekend! I'm super excited, it will be so nice to have completed! Updates later this weekend on the progress...

Weight Watchers....Take 3

So I've decided to get back on track. I started weight watchers a few years ago for the first time and lost 15 pounds.

On my 26th Birthday, almost a year and a half ago I started it again. I weighed in at 175 lbs. I've lost about 30. When I got pregnant in April I stopped following the diet. I gained a few pounds. But C decided he wanted to start with me this time! So starting next week I'll be back on track! The goal is to lose 25 more pounds. (Obviously if I get pregnant again I'll have to stop, but why not at least try for now!)

Here are my before and after pictures! The one on top was taken on my 26th Birthday (175 lbs), the one on the bottom was my 27th birthday (145 lbs).

Current Stats:
Age: 27
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 150 Lbs
Goal Weight: 125 Lbs

Something you never knew about me

When I do dishes (or basically any other time I'm by myself) I make up songs and sing to my Cat, Sweater. For some reason his name is easiest to fit into the music. Normally they are to the tune of something well known, such as:

Somewhere over the rainbow
Something by Bobby Darin (ex. Mack the Knife)
The Doors (because Cameron plays it all the time so now I know every song)
Anything by Disney

This is probably one of those things that everyone does, but no one else knows.

It makes me think, if everyone does it, yet no one else knows that everyone else does it, does that mean its human nature? Weird.

I always wanted a house with a white picket fence

And this weekend it started coming together! C and his dad worked on the start of a picket fence. The bones are up (a few adjustments needed) but still really fun!

Tonight and tomorrow night we have to adjust the 2x4 cross pieces to turn length wise instead of width wise as they are now. We decided to change them to keep the pickets flush to the posts. Should be only a couple hours of work vs. the 2 days of digging post hole and pouring cement.

Here is what my car looked like full of wood:

Oh wait...that was the game KerPlunk...this is what it actually looked like, see the resemblance:

Here is what the fence looks like today:

Here is what it will look like (hopefully):

In other news, I got my period on time! Woo HOO! The doctor had warned me that it could take up to 8 weeks for my cycle to go back to normal. So I consider myself lucky, that everything came on time. At this point we are back on TTC track!
I also think its funny that if I get pregnant this month my due date would be MY birthday! Not a bad day at all :)

4th of July

This is a little late, but check out the pies I baked! I made one cherry and one apple pie. The apple pie was delicious, the cherry pie (my first attempt) needed some major help. Not a big fan of pie myself, but they sure turned out cute!
