Midweek Randoms

Linking up with Megan for Midweek Randoms!
  • Hallie has preschool pictures today. She loves her glasses. She absolutely refused to take them off for a quick before school pic.
  • Hubby and I decided to get away this weekend. We are headed up to Branson. I have always wanted to do a zip line.  Just maybe this will be the time since we'll be kidless. 

  • We got Bryson's test scores from his 2nd grade standardized test. So proud of him. His math total was 97%, which means he did better than 97% of all the students taking the test across the nation. He is his mother's child :)

  • Last night we got our first eggs from our chickens. Finally!! Aren't they beautiful?

  • According to my Facebook newsfeed and all the pics of pooches, Monday was National Dog Day.  So in observance of the day, here are our 2 four legged family members, Buster and Sadie.

  • I have gained 8 pounds over the last 3 months. Its really not the weight that bothers me. What bothers me is that my clothes are starting to not fit as good. I'm getting frustrated. I work out. I could eat better, but here lately it just seems like I can never get full. I've seriously questioned whether or not I could be pregnant although I know there is absolutely no way I could be. I've recently heard about chia seeds. They expand in your stomach and are supposed to make you feel full. I may give them a try, but I need to research more first to make sure they are safe and healthy.


  1. Wow, those fresh eggs look delicious!

    Congrats to Bryson - that's outstanding!

    1. They do look delicious. Unfortunately I don't know how they tasted. Hubby got to them before me. I've already claimed the next one...haha.

  2. Woah! That math score is outstanding! That's definitely a lot better than I could do any MY AGE NOW! :)

    I'm super interested in the chia seeds, too! I need to research them!

    1. I haven't come across anything negative that would prevent me from trying them. For example, one site said it may cause gas due to the fiber. That's not negative to me...just to those around me LOL. I think I'm going to bite the bullet and order some.
