These are just a few things that make me happy on this Monday!
1. Dawson had to have his annual appointment filled with shots and exams today. Bless his heart - he looks so happy, doesn't he? This was the first time I had to somehow take him and Harper.
This is H and I waiting in the exam room while Dawson got his stuff done. We managed to make it through and I rewarded myself with a Panera bagel afterwards! ha! (His appt was 8:30 and we were there early! I put my makeup on in the driveway! ) :-)
2. The next two happies are ones I should probably not post about yet because I'm sure to jinx myself by daring to utter them out loud. ha! I decided on Friday that I was going to try and let Harper cry it out that night. I'm not a fan of crying it out personally and I would have never been able to do it when she was a little baby but at 14 months - I decided she was just waking up due to habit and shouldn't be getting up 2-3 times a night (or more). We did it Fri night and Sat night and last night she slept 12 hours and didn't cry or wake up once. I can't tell you how happy that makes me. I'm pretty sure just by writing this she will be up 12 times tonight.
3. Last Monday I decided I was desperate and I became a woman on a mission. I still have 20 pounds of fertility gain that I want to lose by summer. And it wasn't going to happen when I sat around eating fried pickles and raw cookie dough and never moved off the couch at night. So I started weight watchers and working out. I did WW a few years ago and went to meetings but I know the system so this time I'm just following the plan strictly and trying to exercise each night plus walk when the weather is nice (and not snowing)! I'll tell you right now I did P90X with Scott last night and I decided if I was ever on Biggest Loser - I would be that contestant who cries and wants to quit and Jillian would be constantly yelling at me. That's how much I hate working out. BUT I've lost FIVE pounds since last Monday! I'm so encouraged by that.
I just ordered two dance workout DVD's. I think I will actually enjoy them (one is Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the other is Hip Hop! How fun does that sound?) So maybe I'll dance off the next 15 pounds. WW really does work for me if I can just stick with it!
4. I'm so excited to be going to Atlanta in less than 5 weeks to see Beth Moore that I can hardly stand it. I'm going to get to meet SOOOOO many of you that I may not be able to smile or talk for a week because my face will be worn out from smiling and talking and hugging so much! :-)
So, what are your Monday Happies?
