Rory just finished reading It and now he wants to watch the movie.
I watched It when I was a kid and it scared the shit out of me. I’m curious to see how I’d respond to it as an adult.
I might spend the whole movie crying while curled in the fetal position. We’ll see tomorrow night I guess.
I used to watch the scariest stuff as a kid and young adult and now I can barely stand thrillers let alone horrors. I must be getting soft in my old age! Or having children has given me a different perspective.
Either way, I’m looking forward to stuffing my face with popcorn and snuggling with Ror tomorrow evening while I try not to cry! :)

Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Bars - Pinch of Yum

onefitmama:

I wanted to make these chocolate caramel oatmeal bars for Bible study tomorrow but I don’t have caramel. I stopped at the two stores closest to me and they didn’t have any caramel either.

I just looked up how to make caramel and I don’t have heavy whipping cream! *cries*

I will be buying heavy whipping cream tomorrow and trying my hand at homemade caramel so I can make them! They look and sound amazing!

mamagetssfit these are the bars I made!!

Today has just been wonderful!
Ror stayed up with Liam last night so I was able to get some sleep! I got 5 1/2 hours of sleep before waking up to nurse him and then another 2 1/2 hours of sleep at which point I was actually ready to get up! I’m NEVER ready to get up so that was huge!
I was the first one awake this morning and got to enjoy a shower in peace (an extremely rare occurrence for me), I made the girls chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, fed Liam, hit the gym for an excellent chest session, made homemade caramel for the chocolate caramel oatmeal bars I made for Bible study tonight, got to hang out and snuggle with the kids…. It’s just been lovely!!
The icing on the cake was benching 100lbs again and the sweet note and picture my girls made me!!

Here ya go hashtag-gymlife !
Me benching 100# for 2 reps. The second one was slow and I almost got stuck but I managed to get it up without any assistance so I’m happy!! I was hoping to do 3 reps but since the second one was so iffy I decided against it.
Still, 100#!!!!!!!!
Gotta keep working until I’ve got that 150# bench I’ve always wanted :)

raisingbabys:

I hold my baby a lot because some day my heartbeat won’t be his source of comfort.

Some day he’s going to crawl away from me.

Some day he’s going to walk away from me.

Some day he won’t want to kiss me or hold my hand in public.

Some day he’ll stop sleeping next to me.

Some day he will grow up.

But not today. Today I will hold him in my arms and kiss him on his head.

Anonymous asked: I seen your post about having trouble losing the last but of baby fat from being pregnant. Are you tracking your inches too? You may be losing fat but building muscles, and from your post it sounds like you are, which will keep the scale up but not mean you're not losing what you wanna lose. Muscle weighs more than fat. I obviously don't know but would have to see you discouraged for nothing. :)

Thank you kind anon!!!

I am tracking my inches, so you’re right, I am building muscle as well! I’m just impatient and want the scale to reflect my fat loss and sometimes forget that more important things are happening.

You are incredibly lovely for sending this message and I kind of love you for this!

Enchilada recipe

2lbs cooked and shredded chicken

2 cups sour cream

2 small cans cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup of milk

2 cups shredded cheese

1 small can diced chili’s

1 can enchilada sauce

1 can of corn drained

1 can of black beans drained and rinsed

10 tortillas

Mix everything but the chicken in a big bowl leaving a little bit of cheese to sprinkle on top before cooking.

Put 3 heaping spoonfuls of the sauce in a tortilla, add a good handful of the chicken, roll, and repeat with the rest of the tortillas. There should be some filling left over; add a little more milk to thin it even more and and then spoon it evenly over the enchiladas. Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 15 minutes at 375*!!!

They’re amazing but in my opinion are even better reheated the next day. :)

Filed under food enchilada recipe they're the best you'll ever have! I get complimented on them every time

Usually when I’m eating breakfast I’m thinking about what to eat for my next meal.

My day pretty much revolves around when I can eat and what I’m going to eat!! It’s one of my favorite things to do lol!

eclipsenikkie replied to your post: Post partum body post

I’ve always heard it’s harder to lose after each pregnancy. You look great though lady :)

I’ve heard the same thing! I’ve also heard it’s harder when you’re breastfeeding…. Thanks! Most of the time I think so too. Not fitting into my favorite jeans kind of sucks sometimes is all. :)
