Womb transplants. Sounds like something from a sci-fi movie, right? But it could soon be a reality for infertile women. This is something I've actually been following for quite a while, although I'm sure I could never afford it. Still in it's infancy and very controversial, but amazing nontheless.

Lent and Project H2O

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. I don't normally participate in Lent, mostly because I don't think about it. But this year - New Year. New You. - I'm doing it. For the next 40 days, I'm giving up Coke; it will be difficult but so worth it. Which I guess is kind of the point.

Also, as part of the Lenton season, I'm participating in Project H20. I've ordered a kit for 10 people. Basically, we'll pick a day (or maybe 2) and for that entire day, we'll drink nothing but water. Then, we'll send the money we would have spent on drinks that day to Project H20 to help provide clean drinking water to people in need. Pretty neat, huh? Let me know if you want to do it too :)

February Recap

February was a great month. Here's a quick recap:

February was mostly filled with party planning and the little prince's pirate birthday party. Aside from him being under the weather, everything went very well. We got him a membership to the zoo and we can wait to put it to use!

I started Spring Cleaning, but at my pace I won't be finished until April ;)

This time of year also means that it's time for the hubby to start on job applications for next fall.

Lastly, I ordered the little prince a BOOSTER SEAT. Those of you who know me well know that car seat safety is a big deal to me. He's 5 years old AND at the weight limit on his convertible seat. After a ton of research (I'm just a little obsessive), I settled on this one:

He's so excited!

Can't wait to see what March has in store!

Weight Loss Wednesday and Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

I forgot to weigh-in this morning (oops!) so I will do it tomorrow am.

This week I joined myfitnesspal.com, a free online program that helps you track your calories and exercise. Yep, I'm countin' calories... and let me tell you - it's no fun.

My motto for this week has been "calorie counting = my new enemy :("

Hoping to see results soon though! Wish me luck!


Also, this week is Read Across America Week and today is Dr. Seuss's Birthday!

The little prince has been celebrating all week at pre-k.

Monday was wear a hat day

Tuesday was team shirt day (he wore his Braves jersey)

Today (Wednesday) was sunglasses day and they visited the local high school library where they enjoyed a Dr. Seuss book as well as cookies and juice boxes

Thursday is pajamas day - the day the little prince is most excited about. we even bought new pjs for the occasion :)

Friday is crazy sock day

We love Dr. Seuss around here so this week has been fun!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
- from Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday!
