Catching Up!

Seth - Rivercats 2012

First of all, I want to say thank you to the bloggers who sent me emails checking on me!  I had no idea that anyone would even notice if I wasn't blogging regularly.  I am terrible about checking the email that I set up for this blog.  I pulled it up last evening and I was totally surprised to find messages from other bloggers who were worried about me.  Those emails meant so much to me!!!  We are all doing fine, but life has just been so busy.  I have said before that I truly want to blog all the time, but working full time, being a wife and mother (in particular a baseball mom) and just LIFE keeps me so busy that I look up and time has just WHOOSHED by so quickly!  

I will tell you this though - in a post that I wrote right at the start of the new year I mentioned that I was participating in a Biggest Loser contest at work. The good news is I have lost 24 pounds!  The bad news is that I came in second place twice!  We did the contest for two eight week periods!  Two different ladies won each time and received between $275 - $325 each.  The second place winner, me, got nothing! LOL  Not even a ribbon!  I said it was like when I was in high school and didn't make cheerleader!  Who comes in second place two times??  I was beaten by less than 1%!  I feel so much better though!!!  And that was my ultimate goal!  Jon and Seth and I have definitely been eating healthier, and we have been walking, lifting weights and working out with the WII Fit.  It felt so awesome to have to take my clothes to be altered - nothing fit!!!  What a feeling!  Shopping may be fun again!!  As an added plus, I was able to go off blood pressure medicine - my doctor was so proud of me! 

Here are a few pictures of my sweet Seth playing baseball and enjoying Easter.  I will be back tomorrow to share pictures of our recent trip to Atlanta.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend! 

I love opening day at Westside! So many children 
and parents excited about baseball! 
Playing catcher! 

Dying eggs

He decorated the eggs with a sports theme - Surprise, surprise!  
Notice the Rivercats (his baseball team) egg, 
the Kentucky Wildcats egg, and the Tennessee egg :-)  

The Easter Bunny came to see Seth!
