Mackenna's New Doll and Monday Weekly Meal Plan

Yes it's true when they say once you have children the parcels in the mail stop coming for you!
It's so true, Mackenna Jane get's more mail than I have in my whole life. 
Ok, that is not true ;) She is sooooooo... spoiled. 

MorMor sent Mackenna a new doll. You can zip up her shirt, button, Velcro, tie shoes. 
Mackenna loves it. 
(MorMor) - is my grandma and the MorMor is the Norwegian name for Grandma. 
She is Mackenna's Great Grandmother.

Mackenna has only had this since Friday and the poor thing probably could stand 
a cycle in the washer machine. She drags it behind her thinking that the doll is walking
with her, but the poor doll is just getting dragged. Last night she insisted that
the doll went with her in the crib. Usually it's her $5 monkey from a gas station that says "I love California"
This is a good story actually...

About a year ago, my mom moved from Lake Tahoe, CA to Los Angeles. 
Well, (Thousand Oaks to be exact)
My mom left a day before me with Mackenna to drive down there. 
They stopped for Gas and my mom bought Mackenna this Red Monkey that has ("I Love California").
Mackenna to this day drags this thing everywhere and love's her Monkey.
She can even now say "Monkey" ... Pretty cute.
Anyway, her monkey has been in the washer machine at least 20 times in the last year.
So, I was super surprised when the monkey was on the floor and her new doll was in her bed wit her.
So, Kudos to MorMor good choice.

Goodbye Weekend!

Goodbye to the weekend.....

Weekends seem to go by so fast. We have officially been our new place for a week now 
and I love, love, love it. 

We played in the front yard in the grass this weekend and went to the park. 
Weekends keep getting shorter and shorter it seems. Although on a positive note
I think it really maybe summer in Tahoe... Finally.

Fat Friday's... Cleanse Day #1

Fat Friday's!

So, I'm starting another cleanse today. I'm going to do another 30 day cleanse. I lost 14lbs and 11 inches my first cleanse a month or so ago. However, I'm pretty excited because I only gained back 2 of those pounds I lost. Which I thought to myself that Isagenix really does work.

Here's my Story:
I'm a like every other mom out there that needs to loose baby weight. Mackenna is almost two and I still need to get back to the old me and get myself back in shape. My ultimate goal is to get healthy again and wear my post baby clothes. I started Isagenix in January of 2010. I did a 30 day cleanse and lost 14 lbs and 11 inches in my first 30 days, with little to know exercise. I'm a full time working mom and I go to school full time so getting back to my post baby body has been tough due to the little to NO TIME I have. 

Now let's be honest.... before I started Isagenix I was drinking 2 16oz Red Bulls a day. MINIMUM! I know that is just silly. You could say that I was very dependent on Red Bull for energy, well in all actuality I needed to get even through the day. I work on average at least 50 hours a week and after a week of doing the cleanse I felt amazing. I didn't need coffee or Red Bull. It wasn't just about loosing weight and cleansing , it's a life style change as well and it creates good habits of eating healthy.

I was so excited about my results that I got my aunt Dee started on the products and she lost 28 lbs in less than 3 months. She too feels amazing.

Now I know what you are thinking... CLEANSE!!?! Does that mean I will poop my pants. :) I thought the very same thing and you go regularly like you always have been. 

I wanted to share this with all of other mom's that are struggling to get back to their post baby bodies. I have tried all sorts of things, dieting myself, working out and eating some what more healthy, nutrisystem. I failed at everyone of them. I stated Isagenix and I acutally saved $200 bucks my first two weeks because I wasn't going to lunch and spending $7-8 dollars a day on Red Bull. 

If you are interested in anymore details and want to learn more about Isagenix

Thankful Thursday!

Thankful Thursday!

This is my first Thankful post. Again, I have to give credit to Alysha @ the Tarr Pitt again for
the good idea of Thankful Thursday


I'm thankful that we just moved into a new house in Glenshire. I'm happy to be back out in the shire :)
We had a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath place, but it was an attached townhome and the living space downstairs
was a little small. (i.e. the living room/dining room). So now we are in our new place with plenty of space, a 
yard for Mackenna to play in with her playhouse and sandbox. I don't think I ever will live
in another place that has 2 stories. It's tough with kids to watch the stairs all the time
and worry about if the gate is closed.
So, again I'm Thankful for our new house.

There are so many things to be thankful for. Here are a few:

1. Ian and I both jobs
2. The three of us in good health
3. Good friends
4. Mackenna that continues to sleep through the night
5. overtime, I know I know (weird), but I'm thankful for it and so is my bank account.
6. My Awesome family
7. The sierra mountains
8. Having unlimited access to Red Bull :)
9. The Rain, it's nice to see if once in awhile in the California w/out it snowing
10. My mom, soon to be cancer free I hope
