Please Donate to a Great Cause

I have a cousin, Alexandra, who lives in Indiana. She is participating in the Indiana Down Syndrome Buddy Walk on October 11th. She was invited to particpate by a friend who's 10 month old son was born with Down Syndrome.

If you are able to donate to this wonderful cause, below is a link to her sponsorship page.

Thank you!

About 3 weeks ago, as a family we all decided to get healthier. DS has been doing at least 20 minutes a night on the treadmill for at least 6 months now so he has a jump on DH and I.

Well, as of this morning I have lost 7.5 pounds. That's not alot, but hey, at least it is something! I know most of it has to do with eating better and eating smaller portions. I have been trying to do my treadmill time everyday as well. We also got a Wii Fit and that is really fun too! If you burn calories laughing then we are even loosing weight just watching each other, especially when hula-hooping!

I hoping to drop another 30 pounds by Christmas. Wish me luck!

Happy October!

I realized I haven't written a blog posts in ages and thought I should. I can't believe it is October already. I also can't believe it is still nearly 100 degrees outside during the day! What's up with that?

My birthday is only 19 days away...and I will be on the downside of my thirties. HHHMMM .... just not sure how I feel about that. I just feel like since I turned 30 the time has just flown by.

I'm also trying to get myself in shape. Definitley gets harder as you get older. In February, we are doing a family walk in Huntington Beach. Myself, Jake, David, my sister-in-law, 2 brother-in-laws and nephew are doing the 5K. My mother-in-law and other sister-in-law are going to do the half-marathon! We definitley have a lot of work to do to prepare. But, it should be a lot of fun and being at the beach and doing it with family will be great.
