FFA and my goal for the 2012-2013 school year!

Welcome back to another week of Free For All Friday!

I'm running a little behind this week, I didn't get my post up last night....
but at least I'M RUNNING! heehee!! So I started a DIET this week. Normally that's a BAD word around our house. I hate talking about it. I hate thinking about it. This week I decided that IT'S TIME! I've been pinning exercise ideas, healthy food and workout music! My most favorite thing that I've pinned is this saying that is going on my wall! 
 Firm body.
Laugh Out LOUD!! This is exactly how I feel! I am excited for this change in my life. I am looking forward to being healthy and fit. I want to keep up with my kids when they run and ride bikes. So, my goal for the 2012-2013 school year is... GET FIT! This doesn't mean that I will be a size 2. That doesn't mean that I will watch EVERY single calorie. Getting healthy is learning to eat right, be active, drink lots of water, and be HAPPY! Goodbye jiggle... hello ME! :)
 
WHEW!! Now, onto my favorites from last week's FFA party. In honor of starting my diet, I've decided to dedicate this FFA post to my used to be favorite thing.. DESSERTS! Tons of great ones...you guys make it very hard for me to choose just a few. Here they are...with a little bit of commentary from yours truly! ;)

Someone posted on Facebook today "school starts in LESS THAN 4 weeks!" UGH! This summer is flying by waaaay too fast! I had all the intentions of posting every.single.day this summer... but time just keeps slipping by. I know that my posts are few and far between, but I've been busy working on a "project". It should be done in the next few weeks and I can't wait to share it with you!

mud fights, fireworks and FFA!

I can't believe it's already Friday again and I didn't blog even ONE time this week... UGH! Summer is kickin' my bootie! We've been having tons of fun swimming, mud fights, fireworks, barbecues, sleepovers, and this weekend we are headed up north to our family reunion! It's been super busy but LOTS of FUN for sure!! I hope you and your family had a great 4th of July!
I asked my son the other day if he is excited for school to start and he said "we are NOT talking about that right now!" LOL!! I love that they love to be home! I LOVE summer!!

We want to see everything that you've baked, created, glued, painted... well, you get the idea! ;) I want to apologize for my lack of posting.
