Simple Monday and something actually Band related!!

Outside my's raining and thundering!!! Glad we got our errands done early today!!

I am thinking...that I'm actually going in for my first fill tomorrow. My first fill isn't technically scheduled until July 11th, but I am supposed to start "regular food" tomorrow and well, I know right now I could eat WAY more than I am supposed (3 oz. at dinner time). So yeah, it's time for a fill. My NP said that if I felt like I needed it earlier just to call and I did and I'm on my way in tomorrow. She said she is going to be very aggressive to get me into my green zone in the 90 days following my surgery. I mean we are already 28 days in today and no fill so it's going to have to be VERY aggressive in the next 60 days.

I am thankful husband. I had a few VERY grouchy days last week and he was so incredibly patient with me.

From the kitchen...I just made both my kids sunbutter sandwiches. What’s sunbutter you ask? Well, since we are a peanut free home (unless we sneak some in our bedroom ONLY when L is not in the house and then we have to CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN before he comes home, which by the way is like once a year when this happens) we have a peanut butter alternative. It’s made from sunflower seeds. It looks like peanut butter, smells like sunflower seeds, tastes like sunflower seeds, has the consistency of peanut butter and you can use it in way you would use peanut butter! There is a name brand Sunbutter, but we usually just head from Trader Joe’s and buy their brand.

I am wearing...a t-shirt and capris. Small NSV…..shirts are STARTING, I say starting, because it is just BARELY happening, to become loose!!! Small NSV!! (for those not in the band world an NSV is a non-scale victory, in other words, it means it has something to do with weight loss, but the scale doesn’t count!)

I am creating...ideas in my head about what to do with these kids this summer!!

I am going...nowhere else today! We’ve already met my in-laws for breakfast, went to the gas station, went to get the tags renewed on my mini-van (yep, that’s how I roll) and to the grocery store..

I am reading...nothing really. Band blogs. Pinterest. My brother gave me the Hunger Game trilogy but I have yet to get into them.

I am hoping...that everything goes well for my dad and father-in-law. Praying for both this week.

I am hearing...washer just stop and thunder every now and again.

Around the tween and I got a bunch accomplished today already but laundry is a never ending battle at our house. How about yours?

One of my favorite things...texting. I love texting. I don’t know what life would be like without now. You know? My mom HATES to text. My in-laws just got a texting plan in the last 6 months.


  1. Hello,
    I enjoy following your blog, and of course just must comment on your SunButter explanation: since I blog for them, I appreciate that the mention. As a fellow busy mom, I so love your perspective! Take care.

  2. Thank you so much for your comment! My son LITERALLY eats a sunbutter and jelly sandwich almost every day of the week! With having food allergies and being on the ASD spectrum he gets stuck in a rut VERY easily, but we are expanding his menu this summer and working with him. But, it's nice that Sunbutter has been a nice go to that we always have a back up for him!!
