SPRING BREAK is in sight

WOW, Just saw that I'm one more post away from my 200th post and 9 people away from having 100 followers!! That's exciting!

This week has been a long week! We had a great weekend last weekend and celebrated my hubs 27th birthday!

I've been very good about (for the most part) of my phase 1 on the south beach. I've lost 11 pounds since January 1st and am so proud of myself! I still have a ways to go until I get back down to my goal weight but I will get there and am determined to get there!  I think I'm actually beating my hubby in our challenge that whoever loses 20 pounds first wins the others spending money for the month!

The kids have a half day today and I have a full day. Then it is SPRING BREAK! I can't wait for this much needed break. The kids definitely need a break as well! Don't get me wrong, I love my job and am made to be a teacher, but we all need breaks every once in a while! Hubby and I are kicking off spring break by going on a long overdue date! We haven't been on a date in such a long time (probably our anniversary last summer). I have a gift card left over from Christmas to the Macaroni Grill and he is taking me to go see THE HUNGER GAMES! I begged and he didn't want to go see it (I have no idea why not!) but he's taking me because he's the best hubby ever!

*Sorry this is a random post but I felt like I needed to update real quick and I will get back on track soon! I also want to start back up my recipe posts on Fridays with a link up! Be looking to share some favorite recipes soon!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I'm linking up with Jamie for what I'm loving Wednesday again.. I need to be a better blogger but school is so crazy right now.

I'm loving that my new toy came in the mail yesterday! I'M SO PUMPED ABOUT IT!
I'm loving that spring break is merely 7 1/2 school days from now!!!! (Counting today)

I'm loving this amazing warm weather!!

I'm loving the challenge hubby and I have going on...the first to lose 20 pounds gets the others spending money for a month...Although, I'm progressing..I feel like men always have the upper hand with weight loss..ugh why can't I have his metabolism?

As always, I'm loving my family, friends and wonderful husband! Say a prayer for my Father-in-law today as he goes for his 3rd round of chemo.

Happy Wednesday!

Life gets in the way...

Sorry I've been a bad blogger over the past couple weeks. A lot has been going on so I'll share a quick update and then I'll blog more next week!

*I started my road to losing a couple pounds err 20 give or take last week. I did a 7 day fat burning soup diet (will post more later) last week. It was very tough but I turned down sweets every day last week and followed the diet to a T (for the most part ;) I lost 5 pounds last week and this week I took a week off, still ate pretty healthy but not as strict. Next week I'm going to start phase 1 of the South Beach diet.

*Report cards go home tomorrow = I've been SLAMMED with school work....

*I had my first photo shoot gig this week! I'll give you a sneak peak soon! I shot one of our dear friend's maternity pictures with her sweet little boy and husband!

* Time change has kicked my butt but I finally think I'm getting use to it.

2 weeks until Spring Break....can't come soon enough!

Have a great weekend!
