modern conveniences and other things

sometimes i'm really thankful for the convenience of online shopping.  no, not for fun kind of shopping like clothes and shoes (although i am thankful for that too).  i'm talking about ordering diapers, wipes, deodorant...you know, things other people are really going to be thankful i was able to purchase too when I have super busy weeks coming up like this one. :)

the kids tun 18 months this Wednesday!  i told them now that they are old enough for nursery (yipee!!), they can stop growing up now.  we did our first week of swimming lessons last week and another one this week.  they love it but not as much as i thought they would.  i honestly think josh has the most fun of any of us - he is such a fun dad.

this weekend was so much fun - shopping with josh and the kids, garage saleing with mom green, and josh and i saw Mary Poppins on Broadway (in Sacramento).  love that movie.  the play was pretty good too. today was fathers day and the kids and i had fun spoiling josh.  for dinner we made steak (josh did that part), grilled squash from our garden, grilled corn on the cob, yummy fresh pineapple and strawberry salad, and garlic blue cheese mashed potatoes (so good!).  i love weekends.  at least it's only a four day week this week!

good night all!

120 mile challenge

I joined THIS CHALLENGE and I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty dang excited (as if the HUGE orange button on the right side of my blog didn't give give that away).  I started walking last week and so far I've done 12 miles!  I feel like 120 miles in 3 months is do-able but still a challenge for me since before last week I wasn't doing anything.  So, I've been walking on my lunch breaks at work...and I may have jogged a little today...in my work clothes.  Don't tell anybody :)  I'm excited too because about 11 of my coworkers decided to do it too, so we have a little office challenge going on at the same time.  I'm exhausted but I know it'll get easier with time, and I know my body will thank me for this.
