Brain Dump

Thanks to fellow blogger Mayra, I discovered that Jeni's....as in Jeni's ice cream from Columbus, OH....is sold outside of the Buckeye state.  You better believe I was on her website searching for local retailers faster than my fingers could type!  Luck would have it, the ONLY place in our fair city just happened to be the market near my dad's house.  And wouldn't you know we were AT my dad's when I found out!  Needless to say after dinner we stopped in to see if the rumors were true.  YES THEY ARE!!  TEN dollars and 1 pint later, I was thoroughly enjoying a taste from back "home."  That little 1/2 cup was worth every stinking WW points it cost me.  So good!!


Speaking of homes of my past.  This weekend we're headed up north to Hometown, NE where I grew up.  My grandma is turning 98!  We're spending the weekend with my 3rd grade bestie and her fam before helping grandma blow out all those candles on Sunday.  Can't wait!

It's pretty apparent from all the shorts and flip flops on Instagram that we aren't the only onex\s getting a heat wave in March.  We are on day number three of 80 degree temps.  80 degrees people!?!  In MARCH!  Every night Jamie and I have been hanging out in the back yard going on the "sing" {swing} and picking up lots AND lots of "ticks" {sticks}.  I love having the windows open, sitting on the patio, and firing up the grill.  Gives me hope summer is on it's way!

Little man's summer wardrobe has started arriving.  It seems the theme of this summer is going to be plaid and polos.  I ordered everything in 18-24 month sizes assuming it would be at least 2 months before he was wearing any of it.  Jokes on me.  Thanks mother nature.  Thank goodness for those adjustable waists!  Mamas got them tweaked as tight at they will go so he can sport his new duds without {literally} losing his shorts!  I wish I had that boys metabolism.  And skinny waist!

I got my first "wow you've lost a lot of weight" compliment yesterday from a co-worker who didn't know I was doing Weight Watchers.  So glad that even in my {not so} figure flattering scrubs someone noticed!  Looks like Jamie's not the only one who's going to be getting a new wardrobe this summer!

Only a few more hours until my weekend begins!
