Boring Blog

So I have totally decided I have a boring blog!!Nothing exciting happens in my life, so instead the people that actually read this thing read about my boring, mundane life!! I promise someday I will have something more exciting to blog about. Does anyone even actually read this?
This weekend I'll be in Denton all weekend at UNT judging ADTS Nationals. I will spend all day Friday and Saturday watching solos and giving kids y opinion on their dancing skills!! Let me tell you I see alot of really good along with alot of pretty bad and a whole lot in between. Oh well sometimes I even luck out and get a dance that really makes me wonder what the heck were they thinking!! It then makes me reflect on my own choreography and wonder if some judge thinks the same thing when the see one of my kids dancing. Well everyone have a good weekend and try to have some fun for me while I'm stuck in the world of dancing!

Dining Guilt

Well I have totally blow the diet this week! I forgot how good Braums chocolate shakes were and sundaes. Let me tell you the food was great, but after I get done eating it I feel guilty! I'm dreading going to weigh in on Wednesday because I know my weight will be up and I was so proud of myself for losing those first five pounds. Does this happen to anyone else? I feel like I need to go run 5 miles now because of the one slice of pizza I ate for dinner!

Landry's teeth pics!!

Landry had to have her front tooth pulled today, so Katherine had to get some pictures done before it came out. It took two attempts at the picture place, but Katherine finally got some really cute pics and I had to share with everyone!!

We have recently developed a love for "The Wizard of Oz" and she told me that To-To was in these pictures!

Needless to say I've received this look a few times!

We love bright colors!
Lounging and a classic head shot!

Vegas and the Bottle of Glitter

My dog is truly a monster dog!! He is as bad as any two year old. Tonight I came in and he had gotten into a bottle of black glitter. Nothing really big, John had already called to warn me and honestly glitter spread in our house is no big deal. When I got home I grabbed the broom to sweep it up. When I looked at Vegas he was already under the table, hiding with his ears back and shaking scared!!! That crazy dog knew he had done something bad and I didn't have to even say anything!!! It's like when a little kid does something they know they shouldn't be but it's so much fun anyway. I swear this dog is a nut!
He is getting so big. I need to post some pics soon. I hope everyone is having a good Spring Break. Mine so far has been nice, I couldn't have asked for better weather after last week being so crummy!

Vegas and the dog door

Whoo HOo!! Vegas has learned to use the doggy door! Although the only reason he has learned is a sad one. We lost our last Dalmatian last Sunday night. Mickey was 11 years old and lived a happy life, it was hard to see him go. He was the first dog I had ever had since he was a puppy. Mickey has a the back bathroom to himself and that is where the doggy door was. This area was blocked off from the rest of the house so Vegas could only access it when he went outside in the backyard. Now the area is open and Vegas has so much fun going in and out of the door all day. It took him a couple of days to get used to it and the rain didn't help this, but I think he now has the hang of it!

Weight Watchers

I finally lost my first 5 lbs!!! Last night was my weigh in night at Weight Watchers. For the first week in a while I actually really tried and it paid off! I got on the scale and had lost 1.8 lbs this week. I was super excited because this meant I lost my first 5 lbs. This means I only have 15 more lbs. to go before I'm at my goal weight! I know I've been on the program since October, but Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays were too hard to worry about it, so I really decided to go back on it in January. This is the most weigh I've lost since my first week when I lost 4 pounds, but soon gained it back. I have had to try and figure out how it works best for me. The first week I literally had to kill myself and felt miserable having to give up so many things. But now I kind of have found a balance!

2 Hospital visits, a Shopping Trip, and Cold Baseball!!

What a week!! Last Thursday started out as normal, until I got to the studio. Nike had not been feeling well all week and he came home from school with a fever of 99.5. Nothing to really get that excited about, right. Well within a short time it shot up to 102.7 causing him to have a seizure!! Apparently these are more common than any of us had ever thought. It seems your inside body temperature changes faster than your outside temp and your brain doesn't have time to adjust causing a seizure!! Jenn called in a panic ,like any parent would, and they took Nike to Cooks in an ambulance. It ended up he was fine and the next day at the studio we were having to force the kid to sit during class, but by the end of the night he was going nuts and doing flips off the props!!
Saturday night I got to have a girls night with my sister and my mom since I was without a boyfriend for the weekend (he was in Cozumel on a cruise with his mom...). We went shopping and to dinner and actually had a good time. If anyone knows my sister, a shopping trip with her can sometimes not be the most fun!! But it was actually okay!
Baseball season has officially started for Noah. He had his first tournament if Grand Prairie and we all went and sat at the game and froze!! There is something wrong with having to sit at a baseball game wearing multiple layers of clothing and covering myself in blankets!
Monday Nike once again came home with a fever so Jenn took him to the doctor. Ended up now the kid had strep. Tuesday night they were back at Cooks because the poor kid was throwing up all day and had become dehydrated! Poor thing!
Well we have another competition this weekend and hopefully we can make it through the rest of the week without anyone else going to the hospital!!
