It has been awhile....

And yes I am still here. I contemplated blogging at least 10 times since my last post, but just never got around to it. So I will do an update...
My beautiful baby girl is 11 months old now. It is hard to believe!! She started walking a month ago, she is almost running now. About 2 weeks after she started walking, she started crawling and then last week I saw her roll from her back to tummy for the first time. She is a bit backwards :). She says hi, bye, and ball. She is super fun right now.

We got passes to adventureland this year. Here is Lila and Emma riding the firetruck. Lila wasn't too sure about the whole thing.
And here is Bella and Emma riding one of the roller coasters. They love going here. I could do without it...oh well, I guess that is what mommies do.
I have been wedding planning a bit. We have a date (next year). We have a location (our home). We have a photographer and entertainment. I am lucky to have talented individuals in my family (my SIL is the photographer and my brother is in the band). Now I just need to figure out what we are wearing, the decor and what we will be eating.
I am 6 weeks into my body transformation challenge and so far I am not transformed. The reason would be is that I am having a heck of time eating like a body builder...I eat healthy but not in that manner. Egg whites and chunks of meat, peanut butter, protein shakes...just not my thing. Anyway, the workouts are good, I don't have any issues following them and actually I notice a substantial difference in my upper body strength ( i tend to be a bit puny in the arm/shoulder etc area) so I am pleased. I would also say that my clothes are a touch looser so perhaps I am doing better than I thought. Will have to get my body fat done to confirm. Anyway, that is all for now. Will try to be a better blogger in the future.

I can't believe it is 11:41 p.m. and I have wasted all of this time. I went looking for a photo of Betty the Crazy Idaho Cat . For some reason I couldn't find one, but I found all sorts of interesting photos from years past and had to look at them. Low and behold a few hours have passed. Anyway, the reason I was looking for pictures of Betty is she disappeared a few weeks ago. I found myself almost sad even though I had tried to give her away about 1000 times. Unfortunately she must have succombed to living out in the middle of nowhere. We had 6+ lovely years together. Anyway...we have new kitties here compliments of my sister and her cat Lucinda.

Here is Daphne....

And Fred.....

Lila seems to like them both....
It has been busy here.  We are down to the last week of soccer.  Which is good, cause I am teetering on the edge of insanity with all of the practices and games. 
I have completed week 2 of my body transformation challenge.  The workouts are fine.  I am struggling with the protein.  I basically suck at getting that much protein.  6 weeks left...need to figure it out.  I ran yesterday when the gym was closed out in the middle of nowhere (which I quite of the things I like about the middle of nowhere).  I saw this pretty little weed flower and came back to take some pictures of it.  Here is one of them.  Ran 3.6 miles, it is getting easier. Still don't want to do a marathon dear sister.
The garden is busy growing.  Here is my first harvest.  A pretty little radish.  I accidently left it out on the counter and he was all shriveled into nothing by morning.  I pulled a buddy of his the next day and he was quite tasty.
And one last photo...some strawberries from my patch.  They are quite tasty as well.  As it is late, I am going to close.  I have more pictures, but I will share those later.  Good night =).
