Like an energizer bunny...

I can't believe how busy yesterday was, Amelia and I were going non-stop. Here is what our day looked like...

7:30 - 10:00is hair appointment for a cut and color
10:30 - 11:30 rush home for a quick bite to eat and get Amelia dressed for ballet
12:00 - 2:00 Amelia had a costume fitting and rehearsal for the Nutcracker
2:30 - 5:00 change out of ballet and head to Grandma Grace's to have dinner with my family
5:30 - 9:00 Oregon City bridge re-opening festival with a great fireworks show
9:00 - 11:00 play with Amelia & snuggle time
11:00 - 1:30am - wait for my husband to get home while I watch Netflix

Wow, I get tired just looking at this, but it was a great day! and now I don't plan on doing anything today!
My hair was in desperate need of a cut and color. The ends were horribly dry and my color had faded. My sisters and I all go to the same hair stylist, Emily at Canby Hair Design. As always, she did an incredible job and I am now ready for fall!

I hadn't been able to take Amelia to ballet yet, since I'm always working when she goes, so I was excited that she had Nutcracker rehearsal this weekend. I talked with some other moms and hung out for two hours while she got fitted for her mouse costume and they rehearsed. It is going to be such a great performance. 

Over at my Grandma's they had the Oregon State game on. We were predicted to lose by 6 and our quarter back was out with a knee injury... we won 42-24!!!!! My Aunt Debbie had made soup and bread for dinner, and it was delicious. We only stayed briefly so that we could get back for the Oregon City festivities. 

After dinner we headed home and then took the Oregon City elevator down to the festival that was going on for the bridge re-opening. Grace and Chris joined us, and it was a fun time.

I was quite impressed with the firework show that was put on. It lasted about 30 minutes and the finale was great! 

I bought Amelia this new shirt Friday. She is a Rainbow Dash fanatic and when I saw it, I couldn't resist. 

I'm spending today crafting, decorating and lounging about. Only 7 more working days and then I'm a stay at home Mama!!!

Oh and I'm down 7.4 pounds this week. I lost about half of that before taking the water pills so I assume the rest is from having to pee all the time. Either way, I'll take the loss!

  1. Your little Amelia is gorgeous. I found your blog through Katie at Runs for Cookies. Great job on the weight loss. You are so lucky to soon be a stay at home Mom. I was a stay at home Mom for all of 5 months after my oldest son was born in 1972, but worked at least part time and usually full time, after that pretty much up until now, right through having two more sons. Now that they're all grown up, I'm going to be a stay-at-home Mom starting in January, since I'm finally going to retire!!! YEAH US!!!
