Weekend Recap and 20!

First let me start off by saying... 20.6 pounds!!!! I was so excited when I stepped on the scale this morning, I'm pretty sure I did a little dance. My reward for 20 pounds is pedicures for Amelia and I, but I don't really feel like spending the money yet when I can't even wear flip flops (rainy Oregon!) so I'm going to change it to time with my girl. I can do our manis and pedis at home and then we can snuggle up on the couch and read books, watch movies or do some sort of craft project (whatever she chooses). I don't care what we do... I'm just excited to have hit my second reward mark! I would like to hit 30 by my birthday (May 1st), but we'll see. I think I need to start walking my butt off!

I am having a very productive morning! It isn't even 8:00 yet and I've already cleaned up around the house quite a bit. This past weekend was a fun one for us. Poor Mark had to work all weekend so Amelia and I spent the majority of our time out in Molalla. Saturday we had a funeral to attend for a friend's Grandpa. It was a beautiful service and my heart goes out to the entire family!

Saturday afternoon Amelia and I had plans to hang out over at my little sister Grace's house. She recently moved in with her boyfriend, so not only does she have their new puppy there, but her 3 legged cat as well. Amelia LOVES the puppy Maverick and the kitty Jasper so she was really excited to spend the day there. We had a yummy lunch and watched some good movies, and just hung out. It was a lot of fun. Since Mark worked and my older sister Erica was out of town, Amelia and I decided to just stay in Molalla. We go to church out there on Sundays and it was pointless to head home so late, only to turn around and head back. Even though the drive was a good enough excuse, I really just wanted to stay out there to get all of my sister's iTunes music!

Sunday we went to church and then I loaded all of the music from iTunes to my iPod, which is now pretty much full! I sort of wish the drive home was longer just so I could have listened to more. Overall it was a great weekend! 

Happy Tuesday!
