I wish....

That there was more time in one day. I really do.

Especially because SPRING is right around the corner! I cannot wait for Viv to see the Easter Eggs, the flowers, new life, warmer weather, and most of all being outside!

So I did not keep my promise of writing more. I know, I should have. But in all honesty, I have been having WAY more fun just playing with our girl. She is at this fun stage where she smiles and throws her head back with her silent laugh all the time. She will reach out and grab your face and bring it close to hers. She smiles all the time, and rarely cries. Unless you are taking too long to get her bottle ready. Not to mention she is getting cuter by the day. Maybe even hour. (I am pretty sure that every parent in the world thinks that of their own child.)

Weekends have been filled with friendly get togethers, showers, and home projects. My weekdays, I clean, play with Viv, see my parents and JM's family, and run errands. I go grocery shopping all the time. (I am always missing one ingredient, which turns into getting 10 things!)

Life has been wonderful. I really have nothing to complain about. I even started a diet two weeks ago. Which really is more of a lifestyle change. Very clean eating, salt and sugar free as well. I have never felt better, happier or more active. 10 Pounds down so far. High School skinny here I come. (Well maybe not that skinny, but close!) We go to the beach in May, and I hope to have lost 30 lbs by then. And by this time next year I want that total weight loss to be 50lbs. This is a serious lifestyle change, and so far, my skin is brighter, hair shinier, and I have not had a single headache! I feel amazing... I WILL keep this up.

ONe of my favorite times of day now is our night time routine. From the second that JM walks into the door to the time we pass out at night are by far my favorite. Viv gets dinner at the table, then bath time, bottle and bed. Half the time she passes out in the middle of her nighttime bottle. Then we are FREEEEEE to have some much needed adult time. We have been talking about putting a deck on the back of the house and a few other projects as well.... Then I am sure we will be done with the home projects for a while....

WE will be helping my parents on a little project of theirs. I am calling it "Project Two K Club". They bought a Lake House on Lake Alatoona. It needs a lot of love. And bleach. The house has some serious sentimental value for my Dad. His Uncle Paul built it over 50 years ago. HIs father, my grandfather, built the first house and his brother Paul built the second house in the "K Club". My Dad grew up going to the lake in the summer with all of his friends and family. I am sure he and his friends have some wild stories form the "days of the K Club" (I am looking forward to hearing them as well!). So the house is back in the Grigsby Family... I am sure that the 4th of July is going to be a blast!
They close on the house on Wednesday night. Me, Viv, and my Mom are headed there this Thursday with a box of massive trash bags to clean it all out! The previous owners left almost all of the furniture, everything in the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, deck.... THe list goes on. But step one: take the trash OUT! It is going to be beautiful Thursday here. They are saying a high of 78. I cannot wait!
I am going to take before, during and after pics because I know that my dad will love to have those!
I am even more excited for Viv to go to the lake in the summer! She loves the water in the bath tub, I just HOPE that she does in the lake too. They have already gotten a life jacket, red wagon, and toys galore set aside for Miss Priss to have at the lake.

BUT first we go to the beach in May...

Now to go switch the laundry, clean the house, and get this place ready for the weekend! We are hosting a Triple Baby Shower on Sunday! We are so excited that all of our closest friends are having babies! Vivi will have plenty of playmates soon enough. One Girl, One Boy, and One we have yet to find out! The parents are waiting... So excited for them! It will be so special when they find out when their baby is born this JUNE!

Something is wrong with my Blogger right now and I cannot upload photos.... I will have to post some soon!

Now to get to the hour shake down, while nap time is still going on!

I hope that everyone is doing well!
