it's so nice to put your mind to something and actually have it work. this was the first time i really tried to loose weight. i've always been conscious & self conscious of my weight but this time i did something about it and really it wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. i simply brought my calorie intake down to about 1,500 per day which is actually quiet easy to stay within if you don't eat fast food, soda or sugary junk (which is something i had to ween myself off of).
next goal- 130lbs
all set up (about 2 minutes before it started raining and we had to move everything into the garage)

we've (read: I've) been busy getting the joint ready for the birthday extravaganza that will occur tomorrow afternoon. it's going to be a typical 3-H day (hazy, hot & humid) ... perfect for being in the pool and only coming out for cake.
perhaps if i'm not passed out i'll post pictures tomorrow evening.

here are some more pictures from today.
one note: Mayden upstaged Cameron's big day for a few hours this afternoon by falling off the top of the large slide in our backyard. she hit the back of her head on a brick. it was scary and complete with lots of blood but the good news is that she's doing well. we did not need to go to the hospital for stitches so that is wonderful! i'm just thankful we didn't have to shave her head the day before family pictures :o)
first birthdays are always bittersweet for me. on the one hand it's a grand victory to have survived the craziness of that first year. but on the other hand it means my baby isn't a baby anymore. Cameron, you have already surpassed all my expectations. you are the most joyful person i know. i hope your love for life stays with you always. don't let the burdens of this world take that away from you.
pictures later tonight!

I am by no means "Daddy's little girl" but i do have great respect for all he has accomplished in this life already. nobody i know works harder then he did/does. in fact i'd say he is very much overworked most of the time and should probably add the word "no" (not to me) to his vocabulary. Chris (my husband) and i have been talking about how we'd like our kids to think of us as they grow up. the following is a list of my top 5 adjectives that best describe my dad:
P.S. don't you think Cameron looks a little like me??? maybe just a little?!?!?
