We celebrated out 8 YEAR anniversary on Tuesday.
8 years! I love my RJ so much and can't wait to spend the next 80+ years with him.
I love how God so perfectly fit us together. 
The kids and I walked to Dahl's that afternoon to buy some ingredients to make salmon tacos. They were so yummy that I'm making them again tonight. RJ walked in the door with flowers and another adorable set of measuring spoons to add to my little collection.
It was a simple day.
And I loved it.
AND I was able to cook-on-our-stove!! It's finally up and running and I've been using it like crazy! I'm trying to decide what will be the first thing that I bake. Ideas??

My 10 weeks at Farrell's is up on Saturday, but I tested last night because Saturday is going to be too crazy-busy of a day. 
And since I'm sure you're all dying to know my results, here they are!
(I posted on my FB acct that they are giving away 10 FREE admissions into the next 10 week cycle. Go for it!!! You'll love it. It's hard, but you'll love it.)
These numbers are the total lost since I started:
Chest: 3 5/8 inches
Waist: 5 inches
Arms: 1/2 inch...still seems like they're smaller, but must be because of my bulging biceps. ;)
Thighs: 2 1/4 inches
Hips: 5 1/4 inches

So a grand total of 16 5/8 inches of stuff off of my body!
I lost a total of 13.2 lbs.
(I have to say, it's so nice not really caring about what the stupid scale says and it feels good to be healthier and getting stronger.)
I was able to do 51 push-ups in a minute and 36 sit-ups. 
AND, what I am most excited about, is that I finished the whole mile without walking. Pretty sure I haven't run a whole mile without walking since High School. My first attempt I ran/walked it in 14:55 and last night I ran it in 10:08. Still not fast, but I felt really good.

My goal when I started this whole thing was to simply finish it. I had no idea what to expect so I'm pretty happy.
So that's all. Hopefully I'll post again about Farrell's results, but don't worry, it won't be for another full year! 

Update on my little nephew David...he is still in the NICU, but he is completely off oxygen and the feeding tube and now we are just waiting and praying for his bilirubin numbers to get below 10 and then he can go home! I know they are so ready to start their life as a family at HOME, so please pray for him! 

Have a lovely Thursday!!

Ah, you and RJ have always made the cutest couple...and now the cutest family!!!
Congrats on the use of your stove, too! could bake a fresh berry pie or berry crisp or chocolate cake or key lime pie or red velvet cake or big cookies...I've got to have this sugar craving baby soon!
AWESOME job at Farrells! You totally look amazing! I should start now so my inches lost would really blow people away! Although, I think I'll have plenty of inches left to lose after this baby, too. UG! Thanks for your example, you buff and toned skinny mama!

Holy inches!!! That is A-MAZ-ING! You are so completely my hero now.

And thanks for the update on David. Praying for that little guy!

And congrats on 8 years! You really need to drop those kiddos off here and go on a hot date!
