RTT: Police Questioning, Meal Plans and Allergy Testing

It's Tuesday and I'm off work. Hallelujah! Actually I'm off work but it seems my days off are far more busy than my days working. I have a First Communion breakfast for Leo, have to go to the police station and then taking Leo for allergy testing. So exciting.

This is very random...I got a call from a police detective on Friday asking me to come in to the police station for questions about a crime I might have witnessed. I incredulously asked him where I might have witnessed this crime and he told me the KFC. I kid you not. So I proceed to tell him that we hardly ever go to KFC but that the last time we went I went through the drive-through. He was like, but you've been recently? So I tried to get more information out of him but he told me he couldn't interview me over the phone. So I have to go in today. So the jury is out on what's going to happen. From what I remember about the last time we went to KFC we had just come from soccer and I had two kids in the backseat. The picture of an ideal witness. Ha!

Speaking of KFC let's talk about meal planning (see what I did there?!). I love a good meal plan. And I am usually pretty good about sticking to them. At least I had been until last week. I have gotten into the (almost) summer funk where nothing sounds good to eat. All the foods we normally eat seem too heavy for the hot-ish weather we've been having. So if you have any good ideas on summery recipes shoot me a message or leave it in the comments!

I am also taking Leo in for allergy testing today. I'm pretty  nervous only because I've had it done several times and I know how uncomfortable it is. He's been having a lot of health issues lately and this is the next thing the ENT wants to look at. The last two things he's said I just keep thinking that this is what's wrong so we'll have some answers and now we're on number three and again I hope that this will answer our questions. So say a quick prayer, throw up some happy thoughts, whatever you want and we'll keep them close when we go!

Hope you all have a very random Tuesday! Stop by Stacy's and enjoy your Cinco De Mayo! I will leave you with this. Haha!

Weight Watchers Weeks 7 & 8

What a few weeks. I really felt like I was giving up on the whole Weight Watchers thing. And then I saw a picture of myself and really thought twice about giving up. It's really hard though. I am having a really hard time finding the motivation to get up and move. All I want to do is come home and go to sleep. Not that I ever get to but meal planning has sucked majorly and I want nothing more than to shove my face full of the most convenient food I can find. Which is not healthy foods let me tell you. So I am going to really try to dig deep and keep going. Because I don't want to be fat. And that's honestly the bottom line.

Starting weight: 160
Last week: 155
Week 7: 156
Week 8: 157.8

Weekend Blur

It seems like lately life has been moving at a speed I can't even quantify. I blink and my boys are inches taller than they were the second before. Go to sleep and the differences between them is enormous. I don't know how to stop it but I need to document it. So here is what happened this weekend!

Saturday was Leo's First Communion. It's a pretty big deal in the Catholic church. And he's been prepping for this since the beginning of the school year and it was FINALLY here. He was a nervous wreck all day. I think it's funny because that is so me. I am nervous over things I have no control over. Also, during mass he kept telling me how much his stomach hurt and he thought he was going to throw up. I always have a nervous tummy even over the most minuscule things. So I thought that was another thing we have in common!

We had a party that afternoon before mass and invited family. It was so nice that people came in from out of town and the localers took time out of their busy weekends to spend it with us. After mass we went to go see the Avengers movie. It was SO good! I love a good action movie--it's probably my favorite genre so I guess I got lucky for having boys! And our party of 18 took over half the people in the theater! We live in a small town but I figured there would have been more people on opening weekend. But it was fun and we could be a little rowdy before the start of it without feeling like we needed to settle!

On Sunday we went out to lunch with the inlaws. It was nice to spend a little one on one time with them. Then we ran the usual Sunday errands and ended with a little fun at the park. It was such a busy weekend but filled with so much love! I hope you all had a great weekend!
