July goals....

So as we are already a few weeks into july I wanted to tell you a little about whats happening in our world and some of our goals for this july. Zack and I have reached a breaking point with our weight... we have decided to make a CHANGE for the better. This is not some fluke diet we are going to do... were just going to start living healthier and exercising everyday. My first step: NO SWEET TEA!!! gah its harder than you would imagine for me haha. But we are going to really push each other and support each other to do better. Like Zack said, we want to be good influences for our son. I want him to look up to me and not be ashamed of me. I want to be a hot mama. Yes we took some "before" pictures. I think I am too embarrassed to post those right now... but maybe once I am looking better I wont mind it.

News you actually care about (maybe), Our fourth of July!!! It was so fun. We walked around the Kent festival, met up with some old friends, and watched the fireworks from the firestation tower!!! SOOO Lincolns first fireworks reaction, absolutely priceless and adorable, check it out:

Lincoln is go go go these days, it has been a super fun awesome summer and I am glad I didnt take summer classes. This time we get to spend together as a family is absolutely irreplaceable.

Also Lincoln has been getting super bad rashes on and off since December. It has been really hard figuring out what to do for these.... we have tried four different prescriptions, and everything from yogurt to vinegar. So my next step: cloth diapers. Its been a crazy step let me tell you. I have been wanting to try these on my sons little sensitive skin, but its hard to figure out where to start. Plus finding time to wash cloth diapers didnt seem to make sense to me. Soooo we found these g diapers... they are cloth but have an insert that is flushable!!!! Today is my first full day trying it out sooo lets hope for the best. I am open to more suggestions too!!!
AAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNDDDD just for laughs... i will post pics of my attempt at throwing together a cloth diaper at home because he butt was sooo bad almost to the point of bleeding... that I didnt know what to do (i also do not own a sewing machine or anything) So here are some pics of Lincolns tank top cloth diaper he wore around the house the other day lol:

~Lots of love and laughter,

  1. Jessica, I am going though the very same thing with my weight. It's never easy, but the one thing that I did that helped me (and may or may not help you) is I started having scrambled eggs with cheese every morning. I split the porting with Ethan and since I started doing this, I have lost weight. I also drink nothing but water - boring, I know, but it works. I wish you and your husband the best of luck!
