Little bit of this and a little bit of that...

This past weekend our town had their celebration, Spud Fest! Yes, I said Spud Fest!! We have several potato farmers in the area and so it is the potato that we celebrate!!! :-) We went to the parade on Saturday and then to the food tents and carnival. Not only did I get fried, but I broke down and had some fried cheese curds! Couldn't pass em' up! YUM!!

My husband was excited to help out by donating his time and our bucket truck to hang a sign across the highway announcing the celebration. Here are a few pix of that happening.

Sunday we went to church and afterwards we had a luncheon and then onto the baptism. Another crazy day in the 90 degree heat, but I was very good. I only ate what was allowed! Lots of fruit!! I even made up veggie packets for the BBQ at the baptism. I'm so proud of myself. After the cheese curds I could have said, "Oh I miss the junk - forget this diet!!" But I didn't! I'm back on track, veggie's and fruit.

I'm officially down 20 lbs.! I do flux during the day, but I'm only registering my weight when I wake up in the morning and this morning it said I was down 20 lbs. So I'm takin' it!

I did go shopping yesterday and found a cute capri pant and top. It is so cute, it brought tears to my hubby's eyes when he saw me in it! (he will be embarrassed that I told you that!) Oh yeah, and it was all one size smaller then I have been wearing! YYYYYYYEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!! Progress!!!

I think I broke my middle toe! We were at Nico's karate class today and Sonja pushed his huge water bottle off of the table and it landed on my toe. My toe is still throbbing and hurting! I will survive!

The kids got their hair cut today. Nico was angry with me because he wants it long and a mo hawk! (I really don't think he is 100% sure what he wants, because he also wants side burns!) Sonja is adorable now that I can see her eyes again!

Well that's the last few days! Adios Amigos!
