Happy Friday! Linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk with High Five For Friday!

1. I was finally able to cash in my 10 pound weight loss reward!!! I lost 11.4 pounds last week, bringing my total over the past couple of months to 16.2. You can read about it here!

2. Amelia and I spent an evening over at my Grandma's house working on a craft project for Easter. I love crafting with her!

3. They are quite the duo.

4. Amelia and her baby had a wonderful tea party the other day. I wasn't invited so I sat in our room (next to hers) and listened in on all of the cuteness.

5. This is what Amelia looks like when she leans back on my lap and I pull her up really quickly. I just love the look on her face... and the crazy hair. Mark took the photos and they are all hilarious.

  1. Way to go on your weight loss what a fantastic achievement! I do a reward system too and use envelopes and am always excited for when I get to open the next one and see my prize :)

    1. Thank you so much. I didn't do nearly as well this week, thanks to Easter and having family in town, but I'm just thankful it was another loss and not a gain (as it is with most holiday weekends). Do you mix up the envelopes? That is a really great idea.

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss! That's an awesome accomplishment!

  3. Congrats on meeting your weight goal! I LOVE the idea of giving yourself little rewards when you meet a goal. Great way to stay movtivated. Oh and your cat is adorable :) I'm a sucker for tabby cats.

    1. It was so fun to get a reward. I made them up almost a year ago and have really struggled over the past year. Our cat is awesome! My daughter isn't always as gentle as she should be, but he always comes back for more "love" from her. Perfect cat to have with a kiddo.
