Summer adventures

It was a wonderful summer here in Central Oregon, here are a few pictures to sum it up for us!

A couple lake adventures with friends

Lots of backyard BBQs with friends and family

Our poppies!

Dinners on the back porch :)

Connor loves summer, it's BERRY time!!! :)

Quite a few spectacular memories, I think this sums it up pretty well ;)
Well everyone, I am trying awfully hard to figure this site out. I should play with things more, to get the hang of it. Just like myspace once, facebook more recently, and now Google+, I am getting so frustrated! I want to make a design for my blog, a layout - I've learned a little, but I seem to end up back where I was! Any good tips?

I fail!

It has been so long since my last post! I said I would keep up with this... yeah.

Been busy making family plans! We are so bad about letting the computers absorb all of our free time. It should be spent with kids! We are both battling gaming addictions. Me, World of Warcraft, and DH, Minecraft! We have set new rules for ourselves: Tuesdays are free-days (to game or whatever) and every other day, 9pm-Midnight. That way the kids are in bed and they get 100% of us during the day.

I have also been trying to workout. I have been losing a lot of weight with my gallstone problem and my whole diet contains things that are either low fat or no fat. I was at my heaviest after having Aurora. After so much time spent on bed rest with both kids, I weighed a whopping 230lbs. Being around 6' tall I didn't notice it that much.. until I got a look at myself next to smaller people in a full length mirror. I was mortified! This morning I weighed in at 185lbs. My water weight is very up and down, 2 days ago my hateful scale said 180lbs! I have been working out for 3 mins every day for the last week or so, so I am looking forward to added strength with my weight loss.

Time to end this, not even sure how much sense I made just there. It was a long night for me!

Now that I have a spiffy new header, I suppose it is time to really get underway with this! (we shall see). First, I will tell you a little bit about my family. There's Ben, my very loyal, loving husband. Connor, was born in April 2009, my darling little boy. Aurora, was born in October 2010, my sweet little angel. And then of course, there's Me :)

I am a stay at home mom. I love to paint, cook, party plan, decorate, you name it. If it's in the homemaking department I can probably do it. Unless it's gardening.. maybe someday!

I am not quite sure what to do with this blog yet. Talk about our days, things I do or want to do, post pictures.. I guess only time will tell :)

Well, here's my first blogger blog! 
I've been wanting to do something like this forever, I have so many passions and interests, I need somewhere to talk about all of them! I cannot wait to start this thing up and hopefully get my ideas a bit more organized! :)
