This was the birthday cake I made for Riley. She LOVED it! LOL! I am by no means a cake decorator, but I had fun baking it. I was trying to make her a Littlest Pet Shop Kitty Cat. I'm thinking maybe I should have just bought her one, but the cash I did have went to actual LPS Pets for her collection. My kids are little packrats, I swear! The first week of February the Walmart is having an LPS Parade - and Rye got an invitation in the mail - so guess who gets to take her... Yay. And of course they will have exclusive pets for sale that day, so I hope she saved some of her birthday money!
The whole not smoking thing isn't going to great. It's hard. BUT - I have been going to work out at the YMCA on a regular basis. Halie has already lost 5 pounds, and I found a muscle in my arm that I didn't know I had. Neat-O! I don't think I have lost anything, but all my pants fit again - which is a great relief. The kids are really enjoying going swimming, and my mom has been teaching the little ones how to swim. I also found a place to get term life insurance here. I am looking to get a little more - just in case. I am horrified that my kids will not be taken care of if something happens to me. Of course I am doing my best to avoid that - even my blood pressure has been really super good lately - awesomeness!!
So life keeps on going, it's been so busy lately. Lots of irons in the fire, but at least for the moment, it's not half bad!
