New Years Resolutions

This year went by pretty fast I must say. It was full of so much happiness. I've rekindled friendships and am still friends with my best friend, who I am so thankful for. She is always there for me and knows me so well. Of course i'm thankful for my two boys. I love them so much.

Then there's Mike, we've been together for four years and I love him with all of my heart. Just recently he has decided to join the army. Which I am hurt about, but it's all for the best.

Now on to my resolutions.
1. Lose weight.
This is something that is everyone's resolution i'm sure, but it's time I lose all the baby weight. I am about 40 or 50 pounds more than i was before I was pregnant with Jered. So I have quite a ways to go. I will be trying to complete the Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge.

2. Potty train Jered.
I know this is pretty random but I would like him potty trained by his second birthday.

3. Start eating clean.I guess this should go with number one but this is a big thing for me. I eat so horrible. I know i won't be able to eat completely clean right off the bat, but hopefully over time i will. And I also hope my family will start eating clean right along with me.

4. Be a more active blogger. I don't blog as often as I would like. This year I am going to try and blog at least once a week. I plan on having a "Mani Monday" every Monday, since I paint my nails so much I might do two or three different ones in one post or spread them out throughout the week.

That's all I have for now. I didn't want too many cause I eoyld just give up on them.

So stay tuned for more posts from me in the near future.

In The Hospital

So on Wednesday my youngest son, Austin, had a seizure. We took him to the E.R. And they said it was a Febrile seizure. Which the doctor said is a seizure caused by a fever getting too high too fast. After all that everything was fine so they discharged him.

A couple of days later Mike and I felt like we were getting sick so my mom took Austin for the night. We were in bed, watching tv, ready to go to sleep, when my mom called and said Austin was having another seizure. So we went to the E.R. again. This time they admitted Austin into the PICU. This all happened last night.

Earlier today they did an MRI. Which went well and we should have the results today. He also had an EEG done. Which also went well but as Austin was getting hooked up he was screaming. We should get the results of the EEG tomorrow at the latest.

My poor baby has red spots all over from the EEG...
I still can't believe that this happened to him..he's only four months old:( Hopefully he'll either grow out of the seizures (Like his father, Mike, who had them as a baby), or that this is something we will be able to control...
I'm hoping we aren't here much longer. The nurses are all so wonderful. Austin also got a stocking filled with goodies which was so nice.

This has been a very stressful week...until next time...

App Review: Cartwheel

So I was pretty excited to find this app. With this app you can save various amounts of money for buying certain things at Target. For example, you need toothpaste or lotion or even milk, so you go on Cartwheel and see if they have any of those items are on there. If they are you add the offer to your account. Most offers are about 5% off. The most I've seen is 30-40% I believe. Anyway, once your done shopping and you have items from Cartwheel in your basket you go to checkout. You then just show the cashier the barcode for them to scan and there you go.

Some details about the app...you can sign up with Facebook. You will be able to see if your friends use Cartwheel and what offers they've used unless they've been added privately. Another thing. You only get a certain amount of spaces you can put offers in. Once friends join the app you get another space. So invite friends for more spaces!
They have pretty much everything in this app so its easy for you to save money
Last night I got a Monsters University blanket for Jered, for Christmas, a mini notepad, pens and a bottle opener key for Mike, all for a little over $15 thanks to Cartwheel. Had I not used it I would have paid $15 just for the blanket alone.

All in all I highly recommend this app, especially if you shop at Target quite a bit.
Well...until next time!
