So What Wednesday!?


It's Hump Day Y'all!! Which means!? Life After I Dew


Linking up for So What Wednesday!

SOOO What!!!

* If the Princess has worn these pajamas 3 nights in a row. However she will get to bed I'm down for!


* If I decided not to buy any clothes for the Princess and I until Black Friday, and then went shopping last weekend. I have decided to start over! So as of October 13th I will not buy clothes for the Princess and I. 
* If I'm already buying Christmas presents. It's expensive to buy gifts for everyone and the only way I can manage is to spread it out. I hope to be done with all my gift buying by Black Friday. 
* If I'm refusing to buy a Halloween costume this year. Halloween is stressful for us if it's on a school night because we have to drive 30 minutes to see family and more family and then don't get home till late. This year we have decided to stay home and people can come to us. I bought the Princess a super cute dress from Zuilly and that will be what she wears. 
* If I went WAY over my weight watchers points limit this weekend. It was our 5 year anniversary and I ate like I hadn't eaten in 5 years. I will kick it in gear next week. My goal is to lose 15 pounds by Thanksgiving. 

Hope you all have a great Hump Day!! Go STL Cardinals!!

Phone Dump Monday!



Hey y'all it's Monday and I am dragging! The Mr. and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary this weekend!!


Saturday morning we got up and headed out! The night before the Princess stayed at my mom and dads so I got an entire nights rest! I slept from 11 p.m. - 9 a.m. without getting up once! It was amazing!!!

I dropped my iPhone the day before and the back glass shattered so first thing we went and got the 5c. Love it! It's hot pink and is much faster than my iPhone 4. We did a little shopping, had Starbucks, 

ate the most delicious steak I have ever eaten in my entire life, 
and went to Piano bar.

In the Mr.s defense, the flash was really bright. He wasn't intoxicated! :)

Sunday morning I laid in bed until 9:00!! 

If you're not a mom then you can't fully appreciate that, but someday you will! We got to relax and lounge around and then finally headed home. I'm blessed to have parents that can take care of the Princess while we were gone. We hardly ever get to get away just the two of us so it was very needed!

My weekend ended with some snuggle time with the Princess. 

I hope you all had a great weekend! Here's to getting back on track with my eating this week since I ate CRAPPY this weekend!!

My Normal Day




I love when bloggers post about a day in their life. It lets me know that they are real! So I thought I would give it a try!


This is what time I set my alarm for. I don't like being rushed and I try to get to school early so I can leave right after I'm done. Like the cracked screen? Anyone feeling sorry for me can totally hook me up with a new apple! :)


I wake up and immediately get a cup of coffee. It's the only way I can survive! 

Forgot to take a before pic, but I'm almost ready! Love that messy bathroom!? Keepin it real folks!

The Princess normally eats breakfast on the bed while watching Doc McStuffins while I get ready. I'm blessed in that her daddy takes her to daycare so I don't have to worry about getting her ready every morning. 

Typical bumper to bumper traffic. I work on a military base so we have to go through a checkpoint every morning. 




I hang out with kids all day! Best job ever!

I get out of school at 3:45, pick up the Princess by 4:30 and then on to making dinner. On tonight's menu Lasagna (new recipe) 


Disclaimer - the above dinner was gross! It called for taco seasoning in the ground beef. It tasted like Mexican lasagna. Not my cup of tea. 

We then normally do some snuggling and relaxing before bath and bed time at 7:30. This may seem early but this child has slept through the night since she was 4 weeks old and her schedule has never changed. Read Baby Wise!

I try to go to bed by 10:00 so I can lay in bed and watch the news before falling asleep. Sometimes I stay up super late reading blogs and pinteresting, but most nights I'm beat! 

So what do y'all's normal days looks like? I just realized I forgot lunch and breakfast. Lol my days are crazy if ya can't tell!

Follow me on Instagram and MyFitnessPal at cdecker0 and thanks for following me on BlogLovin!!

Weekly Goals!

So last week I had the goal to track my food even if it grossed me out, and oh my! I eat Soooo much crap it's ridiculous! By the grace of God I lost weight - very little, but it's better than a gain! 

So I'm linking up again with Amy for my weekly goals. 

button

Goal One:
   Drink water! I do ok during the work week, but the weekend is full of coffee! I must get water in my system!!

Goal Two: 
   Don't eat out, until the weekend! I have planned meals Monday-Thursday and then the husband and I are going away for the weekend for our anniversary! 

Goal three:
  Stop spending money! I want to be debt free and I can't be debt free if I keep acting stupid with money!


Hope y'all have a good week and keep up with your goals. 

Planned blogs for the week include, my dinner recipe plans for the week, a day in my life, and my loves!

Thankful Thursday Link-Up

Along with trying to lose weight, blog, take care of my Princess, and the house. I have also been trying to get out of debt. While the husband and I have been in this process for a while we haven't really been making progress. There's always that new dress from The Zig Zag Stripe that I NEED, new hair products that I NEED, more food to fill my already full pantry, and new home decor.

So a couple of months ago I started reading this book called "7" by Jen Hatmaker and it pretty much has started wrecking my world. If you have a household income of $48k then you are in the top 3 percent of wage earners in the WORLD! It has opened my eyes to how selfish I am as a person and how insanely stupid I am with money. 

I say all that to say, that today I am thankful for so many things!

 

I am thankful for being born and raised in the United States. 
I am thankful for a college degree that my parents worked hard to pay for. 
I am thankful for my amazing family. 
I am thankful for any followers I have. This blog is my outlet and I love seeing that people like what I'm writing. 
I am thankful for my house and all the crazy ridiculous crap I have that fills it. 
I am thankful for the book "7" for inspiring me to change my thinking. 


If you haven't checked out the book by Jen Hatmaker you can find it on Amazon HERE. Seriously an AMAZING read!!

So What Wednesday!

So yesterday I promised a post about a day in my life, and then left my IPAD at school! Epic Fail! So be looking for that post next week sometime! Meanwhile I'm linking up for SO What Wednesday!!



So What Wednesday
  It's hard to believe it's Wednesday already!


* So what if this is all I can think about --
* So what if I started Weight Watchers on last Thursday and I'm pretty sure used all my points on Friday. Not that it's ok to eat your feelings (I'm totally working on it), but my grandpa and two uncles have passed away in the past month. To say it has been rough is an understatement.

* So what if it's October and I'm just now getting into gardening. I HATE sweating unless I'm working out, so I'm just now starting. My yard is need of major landscaping! Any advice would be AWESOME!!
 

* So what if this is the shortest So What Post. I'm out of things to say! I can't get my mind off all the work I have to do to get my kiddos ready for the end of the quarter, and all the grading I need to be doing!

Hope y'all have a great HUMP day!!
