Easter is coming

Easter is fast approaching. Easter is super late this year, it is actually the latest that it can ever be. Well with Easter approaching the Easter Bunny is finally at the mall. Lacey has been begging to see the Bunny since we bought her Easter Dress. Today seemed like the perfect to go, so we went.

While we were out we decide to go try Flower Girl dresses on Lacey. Brandon's sister wedding is on Oct. 1st and we are trying to figure out what Lacey likes, what Ann likes, the size that would be best to order, if it's better to get measurements or just go by true size. Here are a few of Lacey's favorites.
This is Lacey's favorite

We had to do the spin test on every dress. Lacey loved the way the 1st one spun the best. Luckily the sash comes in a different colors and the dress comes in Ivory.

Mothers Intuition

My mom is amazing. I am blessed with one of the world's greatest moms. Growing up I am sure I thought she was the worst mom. Not allowing me to eat candy for breakfast, or not allowing me to stay at a friends house when her parents weren't home. I am sure I put up a good fight when I didn't want to do my chores, or when she told me no. Looking back I am glad she told me no, I am glad she gave me rules and boundaries. I know I tried to push those limits daily.

Having 2 kids of my own I look back a lot and try to remember the way my mom disciplined me. Lacey is a button pusher, and she talks back. My mom said it is a genetic trait passed down from my dad, to me, to her....I am sure she is right. I can't get through telling Lacey "NO" without her saying "But, but"

My mom always knows when to take the kids or take one of the kids. She normally takes Lacey, because Lacey is old enough to talk and she asks to go. When I ask my mom to watch the kids she always says yes. My mom always knows what to say to help me calm down.

Thanks to my mom for being so awesome!!

I only have 7lbs left until I reach 140!! I took a few weeks off, just watching what I was eating, but not really exercising. I maintained 152-154. This week I've gotten myself in gear. Taking in 1250 calories and working out. This morning I stepped on the scale and was surprised to see 147!! Officially 40lbs down!!

Wedding plans

My Sister-in-laws wedding is fast approaching. We have several months but I know that they will fly by.

I am trying to find clothes that fit and look halfway decent. I went through my summer clothes yesterday and let me tell you EVERYTHING looks like a tent!! I think a shopping trip is in order!! I am hoping to find a couple nice dresses to wear the rehearsal dinner and the wedding.
Is it wrong to wear black to an October wedding? I really have no clue what to wear....A long dress, a tea length dress, a knee length dress?!? Ohh geeze I am already stressing and it's not even 3 months out yet. Maybe while we are out clothes shopping I can try on some dresses.

I am hoping that my parents are able to come with us. Built in babysitters! Brandon's sister hired babysitters for the wedding reception but I am not comfortable with people watching my kids that I don't know. But I want to be able to enjoy the reception....I guess we have time to figure at.

Flower girl dresses are SUPER cute!!

Funny things kids say

Lacey is one of the funniest kids I know. She has a huge vocabulary according to her teacher.

On Tuesday I picked her up from Pre-School and her teacher asked me if Lacey knows anyone in jail. I told her that her biological father was in jail and that Lacey knew that. Well her teacher said that one of the girls in class said that her grandma was going to come pick her up. Lacey said "No her grandma isn't! Her grandma is in jail!" Ohh geeze!!

On Tuesday night we talked to Brandon's step-mom and his sister(Ann). Lacey will be a flower girl in Aunt Ann's wedding in October. So we were discussing wedding plans. Lacey gets on the phone and says "Aunt Ann tell my mom to cut my hair!" We have told Lacey we aren't cutting her hair until after After Aunt Ann's wedding.

On Friday was Brandon's birthday, we went out to eat and Lacey rode with my parents. Lacey kept asking my mom if they were there yet. They were at a stop light a block away from where we were going and Lacey asks "Grammy are we there yet?" My mom says "Almost Lacey." Lacey says "We are not almost there, you are driving around in circles!" My parents laughed so hard they were crying when they got to the restaurant.

She has also started telling knock knock jokes. They don't make any sense but we all laugh after she tells them. Even Miles has started fake laughing to laugh at his sister's jokes.

In other news my sister finds out on the 19th what she is having!! At 22 weeks you can't even tell that she is pregnant!! Lucky duck!!

A good friend of mine EH announced that she is pregnant last week!! Her and her husband are going to make AMAZING parents!! I am loving all these pregnant women!!
