#WIN Shabby Apple Dresses for Mom GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

ABOUT US Shabby Apple welcomes you to great dresses that make dressing simple. After years of not being able to find stylish dresses that covered enough skin to make you really feel comfortable (without wearing a tank top, cardigan or long slip), owners Emily and CK decided to do something about it. They visited trade shows, marketplaces and designer studios only to discover the problem was not that department stores weren't buying the right … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 16 & 12 : 2/25/11 #NSNation

It’s been 16 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 12 weeks for Kaytlin. Spring had sprung (so I thought) here in Missouri and I was a happy camper this week! I spent a couple of hours one afternoon raking and burning the leaves and twigs that covered our backyard (darn willow trees!). Even though I smelled like a campfire when I was done, it felt good to be moving and doing something productive! Pair that with a long 1 1/2 mile walk (that is … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 15 & 11 : 2/18/11 #NSNation

It’s been 15 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 11 weeks for Kaytlin. Wow, what a week. Let’s just say… well… it sucked. This was worse than the holidays hands down. Let’s start with Valentines Day. A beautiful box of chocolate covered strawberries arrived (my fault) and I thought (imagine an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, both whispering in my ear) okay… they are berries. Just skip your dessert. (that would be the devil … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 14 & 10 : 2/11/11 #NSNation

It’s been 14 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 10 weeks for Kaytlin. For today’s installment… I will call it “Random thoughts… with OurKidsMom”. I just want to say, I hate Mother Nature. Period. I am done with her. Really, why do women continue to go through this every single month when we know we are finished having babies? *sigh* Okay… enough griping… This week was pretty uneventful, really. Eating 6 times a day has become a routine for … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 13 & 9 : 2/4/11 #NSNation

It’s been 13 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 9 weeks for Kaytlin. To say my week started on a bad foot is an understatement. I was so bummed by my gain last week… the funk held on for a day or two. I was still true to the program, but your mental attitude goes a long way when making a lifestyle change. I ate my dinners for lunch and my lunches for dinner this week. This was my attempt to change things up and confuse my body (why not, my … [Read more...]

Mommy… What is Ham made of?

Our family has been cooped up for what seems like forever. Yesterday the sun was shining and singing to us “come outside”… so we started brainstorming. Our local Play Place isn’t the best for little ones and we were sure it would be swamped. We were on snow day #3… enough said. I had been out the day previously to grab some groceries. The roads weren’t perfect, but considering we just suffered went through a blizzard they were pretty good! We … [Read more...]

Weekly Weigh In Weeks 12 & 8 : 1/28/11 #NSNation

It’s been 12 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 8 weeks for Kaytlin. This week I decided to start with a small lifestyle change. I decided it was time to start adding a little movement into my life. I didn’t go overboard with it… I just made sure that I had 3 sessions in by the end of the week. I shoveled snow for 45 minutes, the kids and I did a Richard Simmons video and I did a Pulse Yoga video. I had a “Hooray Me” moment this week, too! I … [Read more...]
