It is way too HOT to do anything. I would be perfectly happy laying in my bed all day long. This morning I had planned on running. Ummm nooo. Between, my kid crying most of the early morning and it being 80 degrees at 7 this morning, no thank you. My running plans will have to be taken inside for the rest of the summer it seems. Shrub suggested we start running a 6 am, I politely declined. That is still sleepy time for me.
Speaking of sleepy time. Gianna literally just starting fussing and so I scooped her up and proceeded to go tinfoil her window. Mommy needs some shut eye. I'll let you know if it works as good for me as it does for Raven. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. (another post, another day)
((Don't you just love my randomness. ))
Last night I tried a new recipe and I think it was a success.
1 pound of chicken
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of hot rotel
1 can original rotel
2 cans of black beans
1 can of red enchilada sauce
I cooked the chicken, 2 cans of rotel, and taco season for 6 hours on high in the crockpot during the day. During the last 30 minutes I added in the 2 cans of black beans.
I then took the crockpot mixture (by this time the chicken had fallen apart and was nicely shredded) and mixed it in a large bowl with the sour cream and some hot sauce. I literally did the rest of this recipe to taste. I layered a greased pan with the tortillas, then the red enchilada sauce, then my mixture of chicken and beans, cheese, and repeat.
Bake at 350 uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes. Yummy!

What I can tell you is that I am only 8 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight! Yay! Now, I can tell you that I was not one of those people that while pregnant I was sporting a cute baby bump and was glowing. Ummmm no! I was the whale you see on TV. I grew everywhere. If you don't believe me, refer back to my first post. (That pic was also taken when I was only 7 months pregnant and in Costa Rica)
I will also tell you that I have to work really hard to lose weight. It didn't just fall off me like I wished it to. I currently do the C25k which includes running in 90 heat and me dry heaving on the side of the road. The later(and yes...I know it's supposed to be latter) may be me exaggerating, but I really feel like it...sometimes.
Sometimes...I find it fun to exaggerate too, not in serious situations, but I find it makes a story more interesting. Now I'm getting off topic.
This post is a brag about me because I'm proud I'm down so much weight since I did gain 60 pounds. Thank goodness I had her at 37.5 weeks, I mean who knows how much I would of really gained. Keep reading guys! A surprise is in store next week and then I may have something else up my sleeve.
Oh, anyone have any advice how to deal with a teething baby???

I mean does this make me a horrible mother? Does anyone else count down to nap time or bedtime?
As far as spelling, I am awful! If you see something spelled wrong on here just skip over it, ignore it, whatever. I do try to fix it with the check spelling feature but sometimes it changes it to the wrong thing. I have an iPhone and it tends to auto correct everything for me. Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's annoying and I have to fight with it. I'll leave this post with a recent conversation I had with my sister (shrub) on my iPhone. This conversation just proves how horrible of a speller I am.
And if I had added the next screen shot you would have seen that my shrub was hahahahaing too because she does the same thing too, so I'm not the only one.

Okay, back to the subject of my knee and the pain. Well I am about to start week 4. I stopped exactly at week 3 day 3 because it hurt to run, it hurt to walk, it hurt to do anything. My knees still hurt, on the inside, but I found out that it's bursitis so I can still run, I just need to ice and start taking aleve. This all means that tomorrow will be torture and I will be in even more pain. Don't yall just feel awful for me. But for real, a few of my friends and I signed up to run a 5k in October so I can't stop now. If you live in the Nashville area and you are a runner or even if you're not but would like to be check out the Zombie Buffet 5k. It's all for a good cause supporting the Nashville Rescue Mission and it looks like a lot of fun. I mean Zombies will be chasing you!!! And if you get caught you will transform into a zombie. You can check out the link here.

Today I am linking up with Mrs to Mama for her series Seriously Thursday. Today is my first time so go easy on me :)
1) Words with friends is by far the most addictive game ever.
2) YOU are a sad sad person. Hatefulness and jealousy will eventually eat you up inside. Thank goodness my time spent with you is minimal. Just remember, what goes around will come around. (sorry for the rant, I had to get it out)
3) Ebay lady...did you really think that I wouldn't be able to tell the bag was used? And...where is my refund?
4) Why do I only have 14 followers? HELLO people I.AM.FUNNY.
Correction, I did have 15 but apparently that person decided to no longer follow me. Being the mature person I am, I decided not to follow them too.
(What did you think I was going to say?)
5) My husband is somewhat of a hoarder. He only hoards paper but it is driving me insane. There are letters, cards, old bills, notes, etc. laying around everywhere. I'm either going to start shredding or scanning. I haven't decided which one yet.
6) My daughter will be 5 months on Saturday! Where does the time go?
7) Seriously, I have so many more things I could write, but I will save some for next week just in case I can't think of anything new when the time rolls around.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Remember to follow me and once I reach 100 followers I will behaving a Scentsy giveaway.
