I can't believe it is February already. I have to say January was a good month. The Hubby and I have been successful at eating healthier and losing a few pounds :) This is a first for me ya know. I have always been too thin and trying to gain weight. My family would still say I am fine but I can definitely stand to lose a few pounds. My crohns beast has been mostly calm. Now that I'm over that cold and cough my gut is happy and I have to say I haven't been running to the bathroom much at all. I've been holding steady at about 3 times a day, sometimes less, and I'm not starving myself. This is so wonderful compared to the old days of 6 to 12 times (and that was a good day).
I still haven't gotten a new GI doc. I did call Dr. L and got a recommendation. I need to call and make an appointment soon. I only have 1 refill left on my meds so I better get that done.
January was a fun month. Spending time with G makes my days so much brighter.
Oh that face
and I love me these piggy toes
Now that the holidays are over I've been working on decorating my new walls and making some valentines day decorations. One of my other goals this year is to save money so if I can make it I don't have to buy it! I've found some great decorating and craft blogs. Here are a few pics of what I've done:
The two pictures in the middle were drawn by my son (sorry about the glare). I saw some valentine garland in Target but it was $10 so I made my own.
I left the snow and blue and silver balls from Christmas in these bottles. The I Love you ABC's is a free printable from a craft blog.
We hung some floating shelves above the TV. The painting was done by my son and a few more free printables.
My boys senior pictures...more glare ugh...my bad. B on the bottom is our artist.
I like the idea of winter decorations. I saw this idea in a magazine.
Guess what??? Its almost baseball season. The boys play their first game in VA on the 25th. This will be B's first college game. J has been at it for a few years now. I still can't believe they are at the same college and will be playing ball together again. I can't wait to watch them play and yes I'll be taking lots of pictures.
Love, Laugh, and Always know where the nearest bathroom is
