I am back on the Medifast wagon and have lost 3.2 pounds since Monday. I have a LONG way to go, but I am one determined mama. This is what I am making this weekend to stockpile from Sandy's Kitchen!

I know it may not sound appetizing, but it is! Minus the veggies, extra cheese, of course. Well, as appetizing as shredded cauliflower can be, I guess. ;)

I love Sandy's Kitchen for Medifast recipes! Her meat lasgana is also the

If this is what my thirties are like...

Then bring it on! 

I have been dreading my turning 30 for a long time now. Probably since the day I turned 25. I don't mind getting older, except the wrinkles. It's just something about that number. 

But when Rachel emailed me a month ago with her flight itinerary, instead of dreading the 3rd of Februray...I couldn't wait for it! 


I took a half day off of school on Friday so I could pick up Rachel at the airport. I greeted her with these hats and she had a Tiffany locket for me with pictures of the boys inside! 

We promptly went to Fong's pizza downtown and then made a Beeline for Target.  

Rachel was so excited to see the boys, and a little nervous that they would not remember her. 
I told her all she had to do was say the word "poop" and she would be in for good. 

Later that night we went to my moms house for dinner, my sister Tasha was there with her two girls, who Rachel had not yet met. We had so much fun laughing about old times and almost setting the house on fire candeling each others ears.

On Saturday we had my big birthday dinner at Samuari. When it started snowing, the guest list started dwindling, but we still had a great time and closed down the mall afterwards. 

Tasha went home to her babies and Rachel, Madi, Kathleen, and I stayed in a hotel and whooped it up barely made it til midnight.

I was so excited to see my babies the next day and start the superbowl celebration (Rachel's hometown team was playing). 

Probably the best part of my birthday was Beyonce's LIGHTS OUT performance and reunion with Destiny's Child during half time. 

On Monday we laid low and did some Goodwill shopping and I returned her to the airport early Tuesday morning before school.

So, see what I mean? 

If this is what my thirties are like, then count me in!
