Weight Loss Struggle..

After trying to do hcg and lasting 5 days i've decided to go back to something I love.
Weight Watchers.
It works, it's healthy, I can still have what I like.
It's a life style change.
I can make my family meals that I can also eat and i'm not trying to cook 2 separate meals.
I rejoined WW last week. I haven't been doing too good but i'm going to keep going and trying,
I thought i'd share a couple things i've been loving lately..
*Strawberries* They are 0 points on WW. Score.
Jessie loves them so I like to keep them in the fridge.
Lately I have been putting *stevia in the raw* on them. (it's a natural sweetener) It leaves a sugary glaze on the strawberries. Very good.

*Crystal Light*
Anyone else have trouble getting their water amount in? I know I do.
I get sick of it very fast. Crystal light is only 5 calories and you just pour it into a water bottle. Easy and good.
*Happy healthy eating*

Luke Bryan..

Last night Cody and I went to the Luke Bryan concert.
We went with my Sister, Kenadie and her bf, Brandt.
We are both retards and forgot camera's.
So I only got one picture.
My Parents got us the tickets for Kenadie's and Cody's birthday's!
We had good seats! (Thanks Parents:))
We went to The Cheesecake Factory before the concert.
We had a lot of fun Shakin' it for Luke.
He sure is good.... Lookin'.:)
Can't wait to go to another concert.

More Birthday Fun..

We had so much fun on Cody's birthday!
Even though he had to work
Jessie and I decorated the house a bit!
 Jessie and I got Cody a new ipod touch.
Jessie was playing with Cody's old one a few weeks ago and it broke.
No clue what happened, but it won't turn on.
But it was old. So it was nice to get something new!
 We went to The Inside Scoop for dinner.
And had cake and ice cream at home.
I made him a Butterfinger Carmel Cake.
It was good!
 Cody's parents and a couple of siblings came over to wish him a happy birthday too.
It was a good day!


I LOVE Cabbage Patch Kids!
I always got them growing up.
My mom even gave me on in highschool for christmas one year.
They are so cute and smell delish.
My grandma collected them.
 I was thrilled when Jessie got one from my aunt Abbe for my baby shower.
I thought it was the cutest gift!
I have had it in her closet until she was big enough to play with it.
The other day she came out of her room holding the box, trying to get my to open it.
So we opened it and she loves it!!
Her dolls name is Nataly Wendey.
She's kind of a hippie.:)
 So I think Jessie will be getting a Cabbage Patch every year from me for Christmas!
I think it will be a fun tradition.

Being a Mom is hard.
Right now Jessie is trowing every dvd on the shelf on the floor.
Every time I tell her "No" she laughs.
This girl is seriously testing my patients this week.
I have had a head cold the last couple of days.
And.. I think that if I cough one more time my chest is going to burst open.

Jessie has not been sleeping.
Yesterday she woke up about 8:30 in the morning, didn't have a nap all day, and didn't go to bed until 9:30 pm.
The day before she took a two hour nap and didn't go to bed until 11:00 pm.
It's not that I don't try to get her to sleep. I do. She just cry's and cry's.
She used to do so well with naps and being layed down.
She loves her crip and all I have to do it lay her down with a bottle and her silky blanket and she's out.
Last night I got desperate and took her for a ride in the car. She fell asleep but woke up right when I tried getting her out of the car seat.
I hope she is just going through a phase or teething because I need some time to myself.
Nap time was a good time for me to do things I need to get done or just set and read or shower but when she doesn't nap I about go insane.
Today Cody text me and said his day was going so slow......
Excuse me? MY day is going so slow..... Jessie won't nap, I made her breakfast, and lunch, I don't think she took one single bite of either. She pulled all the dvd's off the shelf. While I thought she was playing in her room.. She was actually dumping baby powder all over the carpet that I just vacuumed five minutes previously. While I was on the phone trying to figure out why I got a bill that I wasn't responsible for she started screaming bloody murder because she couldn't get out of her car. She has climbed up onto the tv table and had put all her hand prints all over the just windexed tv......
She is just getting to that fun stage where she is into EVERYTHING.

But right now.. She's being a sweet heart and setting quietly watching Mickey.
Thank you Disney Jr.

Being a Mother is hard. But I wouldn't trade all the messes and hardships for anything.

I have seen people answer random questions on there blog.
Kind of as a get to know you type of thing.
So I googled some and decided i'd do some.
What does your name mean? Why were you named what you were named?
I feel like I get this question a lot.
And I wish I knew the anwer.
I have asked my mom before why they named me what they did.
Mersadie Nicole Lee.
NO! No 'S'.
My first and middle name are not family names.
Jessie has the middle name Nicole now too.
I guess my parents just liked the name:)
It's something original, and it's grown on me.
Thanks Ma & Pa!

Silky Blanket Luvers..

Cody always says Jessie has way too much of her Momma in her.
One of the things we have in common are....
We LOVE silky blankets.
 Every day when I make my bed Jessie comes in and gets my blanket at lays with it.
When I was in middle school (I believe) a family friend gave me a silky blanket she got for her wedding and didn't want anymore.
I sleep with the blanket EVERY night.
It came on our honeymoon.
It comes camping with us.
It goes on vacation with us.
If I go stay at my mom's it also comes.
It doesn't really match my bed. It's a yellow color.
But it sets at the foot of my bed. Always.
 Jessie also has a silky blanket.
She sleeps with it every night.
And it also comes with us every where we go.
When she was younger I would rub it on her forehead. And Bam. She was half asleep.
There ya have it.. A weird love for silky blankets.

High School Memories..

With school starting up and having 2 Sister's in highschool I have been thinking about my highschool memories..
The good, The bad, And yes, The ugly.
 I graduated from highschool in 2009.
I had the BEST class.
Most of the kids I had known since Kindergarten.
How cool is that??
To grow up with the same kids, see the differance in all of them and have lots of memories.

 Some of my favorite memories:
*Volleyball. I played freshman, sophmore, and junior year. I made so many friends. We had so many laughs and fun bus rides.
*Football games. Yea, the were pretty much my life. I was the spirit club president my senior year. I loved to set in the student section and start cheers and be loud with all the other students. We were always making posters and signs for the players. My parents are hardcore football fans. (still are) and so we would travel far to watch our teams. We even traveled to reno and trukee to watch the boys play.
*School Dances. Who doesn't love getting all prettied up for a dance? Even though I HATE dancing it was still fun.
*Driving. I lived in Bunkerville so it was fun to race to school with the other kids. There are two ways to get to the school from Bunkerville so it was fun to see who would get there faster from the way that they would take.
*Senior Year. I didn't have many classes but it was exciting because so many changes in life were about to happen. And seniors rule the school right??

Now.. I am married with a pretty baby girl. Life has changed so much.
I hope someday I will be able to relate to my kids with there teenager ways..
Probably not. Ha.
Life has also changed because I am rooting for the wrong team.
I was raised green and white.
And now I'm supposed to put on a blue and gold shirt and cheer?
It's like telling me I can't be Mormon anymore and I need to go to Mass.
Ok. Maybe not that drastic.
But.. It is werid.
Hopefully I can get used to it before Jessie hits Highschool........
