No Good


Those are just a few of the words I'd use to describe........

The Number that popped up on my Scale the other day!!

Now... You may be thinking why is this chick writing about her weight?

BECAUSE I THINK... If I publicly write this. No, Not the Number looking up at me... I'd be Crazy to do that! I'm 5'10 and Believe me It's not a little nor cute Number on my best day!

If I share with you that I am A Fats O right now... it Might do me some good! YOU just might happen to bump into me somewherem and catch me doing I shouldn't be & CALL ME OUT!! You see you can help me before I put that Red Robin French Fry in my mouth!!

So here's the story.
A few weeks ago our scale got a little too wet from my wild Indian's (my son's) Splashing in the bath! It got so wet it FRIED!!!
So I took my sweet little time replacing it! I weigh my self EVERY SINGLE DAY... and on that Particular Day I LIKED what IT had to tell me!! So I had a little pep in my step that day!! In My Skinny Jeans :)

So without a Scale each morning I dressed for the day thinking man... I liked that number from the other day, I'm SURE IT'S STILL THE SAME!!



AFTER CHURCH RED ROBYN {10 baskets of Fires}


I Finally remembered to grab a scale while moseying through Target the other Day!! In no rush to take it out of the package, I let it sit on the dryer for a day or so!

I guess I had been on a Major Dress Kick lately?!?!? BECAUSE I SLAPPED ON A Pair of my Slouchy a little too big.... But SUPPPPPER CUTE Trew Religion Jeans the other day!! To MY ASTONISHING SURPRISE THEY FIT! THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO FIT! THEY ARE "Slouchy Boyfriend" Jeans!!!!!!!

I though Ohhh I MUST have Shrunk these bad boys!

So I grabbed a basic good fitting Pair.... Then Another Pair.... Then Another


And they all Screamed the Same thing...


What had I done to myself???

I had SABOTAGED All of my hard work!!
I GAINED 55-60 lbs

while pregnant Trent My 15 month old little baby!!

I worked HARD to loose it all!! So I ripped that Scale Out of the Box and QUICKLY Hopped on!! Then Just as Quickly hopped OFF!! With My hand covering My mouth!!

3 Weeks of No Scale Was A BAD IDEA!!

So a Trip to the Farmers Market in search of Fresh VEGGIES VEGGIES VEGGIES was much needed! That is all I'm allowing my self to eat! Wish me luck...

I HAVE BEEN A GOOD GOOD GIRL!! Eating Very healthy this week!!

If you see me at the movies, a restaurant, Starbucks Ext....

And I'm Cheating PLEASE AMBUSH ME!!!!!!!

Until Next time Chubb's is off to make Some Trew Luv!!

{Trew Luv means headbands.... that sounds kinda funny put that way}

While Daddy's Away

His Family will Play! And that's just what we did!

This weekend Jess was out of town on Tahoe, leaving us behind! Even though we missed him, we SURE HAD SOME FUN! We ate dinner out side one night then read every book in the house, instead of watching TV! I've come to realize we need more books, because I think I know them all by heart!

Saturday we were up & at em bright and early and headed to the local Farmers Market! Played around the water fountain, and bought gobs & gobs fruit & veggies!! Which should be the only thing I consume from here until forever.... since..... well I'll go more into detail about that tomorrow!! That evening we had a Movie, Pizza & Popcorn Party as Drew Requested! Please Note I had a salad :)

I stayed up until 3 AM Both Nights fulfilling orders! That is a tad bit later, than usual! But lately My head is spinning with the amount of business I'm receiving!

Sunday was A fun day with Church, Lunch with Shannon & her boy's then a Bridal show with my girlfriend Maggie! Don't ask why we went!! Well actually we went to see some friends model in the Fashion Show, and to my surprise I spotted some Trew Luv on the heads of the Flower Girls in the show! I was approached a couple different ladies and asked if I was Jacklyn of Trew Luv (HUGE GRIN)! And on another instance I was asked if that was Trew Luv I was wearing on my head.... from someone who had NO idea who I was (Another HUGE GRIN)! It's amazing how word gets around in a Small town!

After that we Spent a Lovely Day at the Lomas House! Where Our WILD Boy's proved to us How Wild they Truly are!!

That is the Garden hose That Trent brought inside!!

Our Precious Little Baby's Brayden & Trent enjoying Poplickles (as the boy's call them)

I think everything happens for a reason!

Like whats the reason I was the only neighbor to not hear a single siren, firetruck or helicopter the other day! I was home..... Happy I didn't though! I don't think I could have handled it...IN FACT I KNOW I COULDN'T HAVE HANDLED IT!!!!!!!

A couple of doors down, 2 days ago a family's world became SHATTERED with the death of a father & a husband! This has me so shaken up, feeling sick! I feel helpless but know at the sametime I need to go down and speak, and of course I'll make food... I know all too well what need to be done for a family after a loss! Maybe, there is a reason I live just doors down from them!! The wife is expecting, and they have small children! One in which always stoped and chatted as he and his father walked to get the mail!

This song is something I came across today....

This family will be in my prayers, and I hope yours too! THEY NEED PRAYERS, as they face life ahead of them!!!!! And wish me well, as I go down there tomorrow... I have knots in my stomach! Hopefully I can be of some comfort to this woman and her children, considering I know exactly what they are going through! Hopefully be of some help to them during this horrible time. Maybe only if it's by my prayers! We have no clue what awaits us tomorrow! Love one another..... Be kind to one another.... Don't hold grudges... Make the best of your time here! LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR!

Absoutely Not Having It....

Amongst our Hectic weekend we still managed to make it to the Gold Counrty Fair! We had Drew entered in another Mutton Bustin! He was supposed to ride in the PBR in Auburn on Saturday Night!!! Well LET'S just say.... that DID NOT HAPPEN!! Under no circumstances was he going anywhere near that arena!! He at first was too small & then all of the sudden he was to big!! Then he said they were just too BUCKY & QUICK!! Never admitting he was scared or didn't like it....

Regardless to his reason he was NOT HAVING IT!!
He sat in the stands and watched the other kids ride, and was just as happy as can be!
He informed us that he was a Cowboy, and Cowboys ride Horses NOT SHEEP!!

So his Glorious Mutton Bustin Days are Done!! And that is fine by me...

My Sweet Cowboy, on a horse...NOT A SHEEP!!

And of course No fair would be complete without some rides and Carnival games!!

YES... that is a new Fish you see!! Benny now has a replacement...Meet Peter Pan!

The lamest fish ever... he just stares at the glass all day!! I still miss Benny!

That A' Boy

I get to have a Blaring Game on every Sunday for the rest of... WELL Until blasted Football season ends! Come to think of it... for the rest of my Life..OH BOY!! And Since the season officially Began Today, AND THEY LOST I'm in for it! He did Yell a couple of other things today... but since this is a family blog... I'll refrain from sharing!

I wish he liked a team that actually won every once in a while! Regardless I'll Try and be supportive, and cheer them on! We all know they need all the help they can get!

A Lovely Labor Day

Yesterday we had such a fun day! We hit the road early in the morning for a day full of fun at the Nicolaus Labor Day Parade! That town is so full of character and county goodness! I adore it! Jess and his brother entered the Horseshoe tournament just like they do every year! This year I had all bets on them to bring home the Championship Trophy!! They seem to always end up second place! WELL... The outcome wasn't so great!
They did NOT win, nor did they take second place!! POOOOOOO!!
But we had a wonderful day none the less!Trent playing with Drew's Motorcycle in his Thrashed from the filthy dirt stroller!
Drew & His Buddy Ruby Playing in the Tree

And Finally a Family Picture to end the day!

Drew with his wooden gun , along with his snake painting up his arm! And one very tuckered out Trent! And a VERY Yucky looking mama! I should have grabbed my glasses for this one! It was one of those days for me!! Nicolaus being a small town near where I grew up, we know everyone!! Everyone there we don't see often & I hadn't seen a bunch of them since Jake's funeral! He was a topic brought up by many!! So Everywhere I turned were sweet familiar faces that welcomed me with great hugs and love... and many many fond memories of my brother! I heard a bunch of wonderful stories! I guess people might figure ENOUGH time has passed that I should be able to chat about him without chocking up!! Trying to fight back the tears was a rough one... and as you can see from my make up free face... I wasn't so lucky!!

It was a LOVELY Day.....

And as for that Horseshoe Tournament... WE'LL GET EM NEXT YEAR!!!
