Salsa and chips....yummy!!! The salsa isn't bad for you, it's the darn salty goodness of the chips. There are many things you can use instead of chips though and still get a salsa fix!!!
My week has been o.k. I am down another three pounds, but that is from being sick. I need to drink more liquids, but they don't settle well in my stomach. I try to eat and drink at least 20 minutes apart. Seems to help a little. Good old morning sickness!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

...totally spoiled! The funny thing is I kept teasing her(and begging) to pick me. I couldn't believe it when I found out I had won. I heart shortmama, she is a sweetie, and hilarious! We have a lot in common, and I am so glad I have gotten to know her!
I have also been BLESSED beyond what I deserve with awards!!! I really appreciate them, and the sweethearts that passed them on to me!
I am NOT the greatest cook in the world, so I absolutely LOVE visiting this blog...someday I know she will send me some of her delicious food, so I can stop licking the screen every time I read her posts!!! She is amazing!! Thanks so much Girlichef !!!
Jolene from The little things in life...
gave me the awe-summ award!! She is such a sweetie, and so stinkin' cute!!! Her blog is most definitely awe-summ too!!!! Thank-you!!!!!
*O.K....so I am not going to play by the rules. I love so many bloggers out there, that I can not just pick this time!!! I feel like there are way too many of you that deserve these awards, sooo....everyone can take them!!! I just feel blessed that I have received these in the first place, and even more blessed by the amount of new friends I have made in the past few months!!! What started out as a simple journal has grown to something truly amazing. I love you all, so PLEASE...take some awards back to your blogs!!!
Why do they grow sooo fast?
My little Ashie with "big girl" ponies!!!(15 months old) She is the first of my girls to reach this milestone at this young of an age. What fun she is, and she is feeling better from her latest illness of croup. Her nose on the other hand won't stop running for anything, and the poor girl fell out of the flower bed on Saturday, and has a really scraped up nose. She's lookin' good!
Hunter Dan had his annual presidents club dinner for work at a country club. I wasn't about to go and throw-up in front of everyone, so Jibbity got to be daddy's date! She kept asking me which dress she would look the most "fabulous" in. She loves to dress up, and would everyday if I'd let her. Hunter Dan's date was the cutest little five year old there!
p.s. Hunter Dan does not smile for pictures, but he should because his smile is so stinkin' cute!!!
I had my first doctors appointment yesterday...guess what, I am definitely pregnant. My nurse laughed at me, and was excited to see me there again so soon! I love my doctor, he is very kind, and was excited for me to be having a fifth baby.
I am feeling a little better. I am still nauseous all the time but I am keeping down a little bit more of what I eat. The prescription has taken the edge off, which has helped, but it makes me very tired! It will all be worth it though!:-) I feel very blessed to be having another little one.
Well there is just a little of what has been going on.
Hope everyone is well, I am still catching up with everyone when I can.
Have a wonderful Tuesday evening!!

Interesting picture I know, but I was a happy 135, I was active with two little kids, and dance(Irish-step). I had recently gotten engaged to Hunter Dan, and life was good. I look to this picture often because of my attitude, not just my weight.
As of this week... I have lost another five pounds...happy?..of course, but losing weight from throwing-up, not so good. Which brings me to.......
O.K. The truth is... I found out a couple of weeks ago that we are expecting our fifth child!!!! Yes we are excited, yes this was a bit of a surprise, and yes for the last week I have been suffering from EXTREME morning sickness(that lasts all day and night). Which is why I have not been on the computer much, haven't been around visiting my favorite bloggers, but have lost five pounds. I was really sick with Ashie...for the entire nine months...in fact when I had her, I weighed less than when I found out, which was kind of cool, except for the fact that then after she was born my appetite came back, and I gained all the weight I should have gained during the pregnancy. NOT GOOD!! I am sincerely praying for this sickness to only last a few more weeks, because it is honestly debilitating. For those of you who understand, you know what I am talking about. For those of you who are lucky, and haven't experienced this, it is like having the stomach flu ALL THE TIME!!! Nothing stays down, not even water. This is really gross I know...sorry.
What to do??? I still want to participate in EM-ME, just a little differently. I really want to eat healthy, and keep up with everyone. I will just be posting my weight gain (or loss) depending on how I'm feeling. Hope ya don't mind!!!
FIVE KIDS!!! Holy smokes!!!!! By the way the due date....December 25th....no one plans that!!!:-)
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!!

I added 30 folds of ribbon to each leg. It actually didn't take very long, I started out by sewing each ribbon on individually...that was takin' too long. I ended up just tacking each piece on with a tiny drop of hot glue, then went back over it all with the sewing machine. Worked great!!! I then decided to add a ribbon strip around the entire leg...ending up like this...
