I am thankful for a few things today. First of all, Miss Rachel turned two on Monday! We had her party on Sunday night but there was still celebrating to do on her actual birthday. First, I decided to dress her in a cute smocked bubble I bought from Kelly at Kelly's Korner. Rachel was unimpressed. Acutally, I mostly think she didn't want her picture taken since she calmed down once I stopped.
Now Rachel can serve tea in style!
here and here for other examples!)
I think Dave had a good belated Father's Day celebration and I'm thankful he was willing to postpone it so we could celebrate Rachel.
Third, I am thankful that Sam has enjoyed preschool so much this year. I cannot believe that tomorrow is his last day. He will be going there for two weeks of camp this summer, and then he is off to Kindergarten in the fall. It's hard to believe. Here he is on his first day this past September.
And this ends my Thursday thankfulness post. What are you thankful for this Thursday?
Trips to the gym last week: 2 (But Dave said I still get new exercise clothes because this weekend was INSANE!) This week I've only been once but I'm going again tonight.
Nights without snacking: A lot! I forgot and had some popcorn at my church's women's movie night on Saturday but Dave said that was okay. We also had date night on Monday so I had a small plate of nachos. Mostly though, Dave has been really impressed with how well I'm doing, and since my "book" is already ordered, I need to keep it up. (Speaking of which, I CANNOT WAIT to share what my "book" is with all of you!!! But you'll have to wait until mid-July because I won't get it before then.)
Hours of sleep: I have been mostly getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night which is awesome. A few nights I might have gotten only 6 3/4 hours but I'm definitely feeling better rested.
It has been amazing to me how knowing I'm going to have to post my "failures" on the blog has motivated me to keep up these better habits. Now to figure out what I'm going to change in July... :)
