From a Distance
So this is my interpretation.  Because we are MOVING.  And these boxes?  They are GOING THE DISTANCE.  Of 25 miles. :-)

Childhood Memory
My grandpa built the bookcase for me when I was a kid. It has always been one of my most prized possessions.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 5

Someone I Love
My dad has been gone for a month and while we all missed him I think someone missed his Ba Ba the most. To see my boy love my dad as much as I do makes me a little weepy.

Well of COURSE there were no clouds yesterday.  Nothing blue skies.  So I'm recycling a photo I took at the beginning of the summer.

Photo Challenge-Day 2

What I Wore

Do you know how hard it is to get a cute picture in a sweatshirt?  But what I wore was REALLY important but August 2nd marks the day that my Uncle Darrell starts his 40 day BIKE RIDE (as in pedal, not motor) from Santa Clara, CA to the Brooklyn Bridge.  He is doing this all in honor of the 343 firefighters that died on 9/11.  Soak that in for a second.  Then head over to Bay2Brooklyn to check out where they are and what they are doing.  Because it is awesome sauce.

30 Day Photo Challenge

So I totally didn't make my writing for 30 days happen, but maybe I can do this!  You know I love to take a photo!

I'm joining 30 Day Photo Challenge from Oh So Lovely (thanks Amy for turning me on to this!).  I think it will be fun to have something assigned I have to take a picture of besides my 10,000 pictures a day of my kid.  I'm going to do some on my phone and some on my camera.  Just whatever moves me!

I'm excited to do this and I think you should join in (I'm looking at you Michelle)! If you want to join make a comment here and at Oh So Lovely.

The Best Laid Plans

Well all my good intentions having been derailed by a sick toddler.  Who kept me up until 3, snotted and hung on my leg all day and is definitely going to be doing the same tonight and tomorrow.  I'll be back when we are healthy!

Jump on the Bandwagon: My Fitness Pal

Do you remember when I did this series before?  It's been FOREVER.  My 30 days of blogging is the perfect time to share with you a few of my favorite things!  Let's start with!

I mentioned in my post a few days ago that I was using MFP as a way to track all my food and exercise.  I was turned onto this site by my pal Becky.  And thank goodness!  I love it!  It is such an easy way to track what you are doing.  The data base for food is so extensive it is very rare that I search for anything that I don't find.

My favorite feature about MFP is on your home page, right at the top it shows you exactly what your calories are.  What you have used and what is left.  I also really like the fact that it just adds my exercise calories right in so I can really see how many I should be eating for each day.  And the community is AMAZING.  When I first started I spent so much time on the community boards getting encouragement and questions answered.  I don't spent quite as much time there now but I still love to go and look at others success stories.

They also have features for printing out reports , figuring out your BMI and BMR and even allows you to create badges (take a gander right down there on the right!)  There are apps for Andriod, Iphone and Blackberry which for me makes keeping track of everything all the easier.

By far this has been a huge factor in helping me get on track and figure out what I need to do!  And it is ALL FREE.  I know.  I can't believe it either.  I would recommend this website and app to anyone who is trying to lose, gain or maintain their weight.  Since I have started using it I have turned at least 4 other people on to using it too!
