I love today!

I have happily been known as "Jeff's wife" for 7 years. Woo woo!

It's official. I'm a woman.

Guess what I got to do today?

It's something special for just us ladies.

I got my boobies squished.

My mother is going to love that I just said that.

Yep, I got my first mammogram today.
When I walked in they handed me a list of things for me to check yes or no on.
  • Has anyone in your family had cancer? yes
  • Was it BREAST cancer? yes
  • WAS IT YOUR MOTHER?!?!?! ack! yes! I get it, I'm high risk! Stop shouting at me stupid questionaire!

So, there I was, high-risk patient, 32 years old, getting my first mammogram.

It wasn't bad at all.

But I did celebrate when it was over.

Cheetos were involved.

photo op. I'm thrilled. really.

The Ramsey family was ambushed and forced into getting their picture made Sunday night. (for the church directory.)
First, the girls.
1,2,3...squish Eliza! Sophie was tickling her. These shots are edited because E kept hiking her dress up to show off her Luvs. My fave. Just look at them! They could be triplets. *cough,cough*

The lovely group shot:

Some things I'd like to point out:

  • This was after the banquet. I'd already eaten my lipstick off.
  • Mads is covered in Wal-mart stickers. She wears them like some kind of redneck badge of honor.
  • I'd let them pick out whatever they wanted to wear, so Sophie is wearing a way-to-short sundress with a pair of Maddie's pants on underneath and some sandals that were 2 sizes too small. Maddie of course chose purple shoes to complete her outfit.
  • None of this seemed to matter, because all the people standing around could say was, "Man, are you sure that baby is yours?"

To do list

Things I needed to accomplish / things I accomplished:

  • fix a nutritious breakfast to start our day off right! / allow my older two to binge on nutrigrain bars while I try to sleep in until at least 6:45.

  • settle any and all disputes calmly and impartially / get sucked into a debate on who is more "Belle" than the other

  • feel great that I am within single digits of my goal weight / wallow in guilt and misery for eating half a box of donuts yesterday in celebration

  • spend 15 minutes unloading and loading the dishwasher / spend 15 minutes convincing my children that last years bathing suit is not appropriate wear for playgroup up at church

  • sweep the floor 1 time / check facebook 100 times

  • do at least one load of laundry / accumulate at least two loads of dirty clothes

  • grill out in this nice weather / give in to my children's wishes and fix chili on the warmest day of the year so far

  • love every second of being a stay at home mom / wish Jeff got off at noon every day
