Five on Friday

{one}
 Iv been carb free all week so it's time for a free day! So fat kid Friday is back! Inspired by my favorite morning talk show on Cosmo radio wake up with Tay. I splurge and have some amazing dish. Back in the day we would try things like the McRib (yuck) now I'm more into local restaurants and trailer food, healthy comfort food & and just down right crazy food! Good thing I live in Austin!


Fried egg sandwitch from the always awesome counter cafe. Created and owned by my friend Ms.Debbie she sources everything local and organic. Two thumbs up it was delish

This bad boy is still afloat! I was appalled at the price of these giant balloons ($40!!!!) but I HAD to have it for my photo shoot this past Sunday. But it's now 7 days old! If you buy one make sure to get high float put in. If your in the Austin area Party Couture in the Hill Country Galleria actually has the best prices and the owner is super nice! 
See all the little people hand prints?

I'm trying to give up cokes. These are actually not horrible

November get healthy!

Iv already been asked if I'm crazy for starting a diet at the start of the holiday season. The modavation comes more from the thought of falling any further down the rabbit hole (a fat pudgy hole as a mater of fact) Fall in Austin is amazingly busy and fun. Football season, fundraiser a, election season, formula 1, ACL & the kids stuff! I had more candy brought home than I gave away! How did that happen! 
So I need to loose about 15 pounds. It's a crapy combo of post twins weight, a hypothyroid issue & poor diet. I very often eat with the kids and of course there is a lot of carbs involved. And more than anything else I have a huge coke addiction ( the kind in a can not from a crack head!) iv tried to quite in the past and it was so terrible! Since the babies are all in school I thought this would be a sorta kinda good time to have withdrawals. My headaches usually kick in about 10 am. ��
So for this week I'm eating cleaner, cutting caffeine and reducing all carbs. 
Next week I'll try to emplament a formal diet. 
Any suggestion? 

4hr body, Adkins, Palio diet?????

As far as work out goes, 7 friends and I are doing a fall Barre3 social. I'm typing this from bed with a heating pad on my legs I'm already so sore! Thinking I should throw some cardo in the mix also. 


Is it happy hour yet? What no wine either? 

Will someone please hold me accountable?

Five on Friday

{one} 
Nixon had a great drop of a preschool today! She has been going since August and EVERY day except 3 she has sobbed terribly when I leave. Parents have actually patted me on the back and just said wow. So maybe just maybe she is believing me when I say "mommies always come back" 


{two} 
I'm sure you are seeing this mascara pop up all over Facebook. All my friends know I have a MLM sales, the parties, the pressure to buy, the crap products oh and my face when people actually think they are going to get rich. BUT this product is different! No parties (only online) and the mascara is awesome! My sales rep is also kinda hot and showed my some tricks to look like a vamp when I put this on! 

Here is the link if your interested. https://www.youniqueproducts.com/DanielleMichelleJohns/party/709953/view

My Lucy Loo now sleeps under her own heating pad. 

{four} 
One of these bad boys is waiting on me in my fridge! Lemmon meringue! It's what we call #frontyardfridays and I'll share this with my favorite mommie pals while the kids play and we drink wine 

{five} 
I'm room mom for Miss C's 1st grade class this year. Iv been room mom before but this school really takes it up a level. You have to be on you A game! So I'm loving the site Rallyhood. 

Here is a screen shot of the app on my phone 
I'm going to do a whole post full of room mom tips soon!

My kid is rocking Shania Twain

Every have a situation when you sound like your mother saying "in my time..." 

Feeling hip and cool as I came home from 3 days awesome music filled days at ACL with Calvin Hartis still stuck in my head, I headed to my tub for a soak. Truth, my mind felt hip and cool but my body was aching! On the counter I found this 


I have not owned a CD player in 7 years. First thoughts were humm guess the sitter was planning a relaxing night?!?! By the CD collection it was clear there was not sexy time going on! 
Next morning Miss C came in to inform me of the awesome CD player she brought home from great grandma's. I gave her the "oh that's from the old days" spill but she insists it's the coolest thing ever. 

I now get to listen to the Shania Twain Up! Album on repeat. Oh goodie

Back to school 2014

Miss C started 1st grade! This was a huge change for our family. It's our first time in public school! After being in private school it feels very out of controll. Lots of rules, attendance police, tardy policy, dress code, 6am wake up, 7:10 buss,  paper work and buraucry. All the same stuff I complained about as a teacher! Wish me Luck!


Here are our first day of school pictures!




Miss C and Miss P bff's

One day these backpacks will not look so huge! 

Our neighborhood bus stop



And best of all…..


Muffins, Mimosa & Mommies! 
yep we could not get those kids on the bus fast enough!

Twins turn 2!


The more kids you have the faster time flies! August 7th was my littles birthday. We played it off and did not do anything out of the ordinary seeing as it was a school day and they were not adjusting well to school. We saved all the sugar and fun for their party the following weekend. 

I wanted to travel to one of our local family friendly resorts but I was out voted by Mr. T & Miss C. Miss C wanted a water slide AGAIN and Mr. T wanted what ever was cheeper. I wanted to keep it simple and easy so we just invited a few close friends and neighbors over. 
We had a afternoon of water sliding, pizza and lots of cake! 




And when your guest are gone...skinny dipping!
