Worst. Blogger. Ever.

Ugh, well blogging every day was a bust, wasn't it? Let's see if I can catch you up on the last 2.5 weeks.....

I'm still loving my new job, and don't ever want to leave.

Andrew started midterms this past week, which means the school year is already half over (how did that happen?)

I have found new inspiration in my weight loss journey. I found out this last week that husband and I are going to Jamaica in April!!! YAY! I'm so excited, but still would like to drop a few pounds before we go. So, here goes the next big push. I'm still riding my bike, but I need to start changing things up, so I'm going to go back to my work out dvds once in a while too.

This past week, I tried a new dish every night of the week for dinner. Something I've never made my family before. We did a curried turkey stirfry, southwest chicken scaloppini, green chile egg and potato bake, spinach and turkey enchiladas, graham crusted tilapia, and a nacho chicken bake. The family loved everything but the fish. Apparently breading them with crumbled graham crackers instead of bread crumbs was a little too sweet. But hey, if I only got thumbs down on one of them, I can't complain. All the meals were healthy and diabetic friendly.

Family Home Evening is still a weekly occurance, which is such a nice change. This month, the focus is on family history and temple work.

I'm still working on my house as well. I've been doing really well, organizing and purging, but still have a long way to go. The next challenge is to purge and organize your coat closets. I did the back door (most used) yesterday, and I'll be working on the front one today. It's not going to be pretty because that front closet seems to be a dumping ground for all things that don't have a proper home.

So, that's my story. See you all tomorrow!!
