Tonight at our MOPS@ meeting we had a recipe exchange! Yum-o! The food everyone brought was awesome. I'll be posting the recipes later this week here. Here's what I brought. My families peanut butter cup recipe. The only thing missing... a big glass of milk! Don't worry I didn't over indulge. I only had one...okay two. And then I sent all the rest of them home with the other ladies! Aren't you proud of me? I'm actually getting to the point where I'm not craving chocolate every second of the's pretty exciting!!! Seriously. What's wrong with me?!

We're getting much better in this house about making healthier eating choices. This biggest looser competition is just what we needed to kick us in the butts and start our "lifestyle" change that we've been talking about for years! Greg and I even worked out a little bit together the other day. We're not eating after 9pm and that doesn't even bother us anymore. We're drinking more water and have tried to eliminate soda completely. We know that we're not going to be perfect at this and we've given ourselves some fudge room and I think that's key to make anything really work. If we deny ourselves of everything we love we'll just want it more and more and then we'll cave and loose everything we've worked so hard for. So, just wanted to say thanks to our families for joining us in this journey to being a little healthier, so we can be around longer to enjoy each others company! Thanks!

The kiddos and I are headed on a little road trip tomorrow morning. I'm a little nervous. 4 hours in the car with two kids under two and no help! AH! At least they're strapped in and can't go anywhere. I figure the worst that can happen is that I'll have to listen to someone cry for four hours...that's not too bad right?! Pray for me! I'm also a little worried that I'll have to go to the do you do that with two kiddos and no shopping cart? Ha! Anyway, we're SO EXCITED to see Kristin and the boys...and Sandy and Bob too!! I'm sure I'll have lots of photos to share once we get back. So, obviously I won't be posting over here tomorrow but look for an update late on Wednesday! Have a great day!

Don't forget to leave a comment on the giveaway post if you want to be entered into a drawing for some free crafty stuff from me!

We have your recipe for those peanut butter bars and we think of you every time we make them! I still remember eating them in your old Woodridge Dr. apt. when we were over for supper.
