First Day of School {2017}

This year Rilyn and CJ are heading into the 4th grade and Raigen is heading into 2nd. This is the first year that all of my babies will not be in the same school and I'm not happy about that.... 

This is also the first year that I let them pick out their first day of school outfits all on their own.

I may be biased, but they are all beautiful and handsome to me!

We're looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year!

Gym Day #3
I woke up late and sore and texted Belinda to let her know I couldn't make it. To say my arms were sore would be an understatement. The only way I could brush my teeth was by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my head back and forth and driving was ok as long as I didn't try to steer or stop.

Belinda wasn't very understanding and refuse to take no for an answer. So.... I drank a whole pot of coffee and finally arrived at the gym at about 6am. It really wasn't my fault though, it took me that long to bend down and tie my shoes. But it was my lucky day! Leg day! "Yay" -said no one ever! The only positive for this day was the fact that we were the only ones in the gym. Belinda said it is because we are "gym rats" now. She said this is our life.

I'm not going into details about this day, partly because I don't want to relive any part of it, but I would like to make note of the new word I invented: 'Terriful". I…

Hangry Roxie UPDATE #3

I'm not even kidding when I say this was not planned:

But I guess when you've spent your entire 2 day gym life with the same person, stuff like this happens.

Today was probably the hardest workout day thus far. 

I found myself in mid-workout asking my workout partner where the nearest breakfast buffet was.

We also both found ourselves injured.

Have you ever seen this machine?

Ya'll that pull down bar thing right there.... is HEAVY.

And, just for your own safety...

I'm going to inform you that once it is dangling above your head you should NEVER, EVER pull the little rod out to change the weight, because the super heavy bar will come crashing down onto your back!

Or your head- hey, just FYI since my workout partner, Belinda, didn't get the memo after the thing took out my back and laid me out on the floor. 

I'm no nurse, but I'm pretty sure I have a herniated disc and she may have had a minor concussion. 

For the most part, we have been grateful that for ma…

Hangry Roxie UPDATE # 2

The Gym... man, I hate him and my friend Belinda.
Friday was my first official day to step foot back in a gym since 7th grade. I don't know if I am more mad at my friend, Belinda who talked me into going, or at the fact that it was tri-cept day and I don't have any tricepts. Or, the fact that I don't even know how to spell trycepts. I'm just having a bad day, okay. Which, by the way, started out bad because I was up at 5 am GOING TO THE GYM.

And if that's not enough to make any day terrible, add in the fact that I almost lost a pinky-toe when I picked up a weight thingy. I should of known that lifting anything heavier that a sandwich was a bad idea.

Fast forward: To 3pm and I at work and my arms were use-less. Like, numb... They just dangle at my sides. I'm wondering if this is pay-back for lying to the life insurance guy about my weight... Either way,  I'm never hanging out with Belinda again, unless she is planning something super fun like a root c…

Hangry Roxie UPDATE #1

Hi, I am Roxie and  I am a former
 self-proclaimed donutatarian who vowed to stop yo-yo dieting and get healthy.

And by healthy, I mean get down to at least what I told the DMV I weigh.

As most of my Facebook friends know, I have recently started eating healthy and working out.

I've always had a weight problem and I've always tried diets which consisted of:

Yogurt for Breakfast A salad for lunch. And I'm all like... I've been dieting all morning, am I skinny yet?! And then I get home and eat the entire kitchen.

Ya'll, diets are hard and I get so tired of hearing people say they aren't. They're all like.... its just like riding a bike, its easy. And I'm all like.. yeah riding a bike that's on fire! When the ground is on FIRE! And everything is on FIRE BECAUSE IT FEELS LIKE I'M IN HELL.

So, I usually just give up. And then head to Jack-N-the Box and order 3  egg rolls, a large coke, and curly fries because I am going to just start over next M…

Ryker {14 Months}

Why is this age so funny-awesome-cute-extremely-difficult? We put off potty training Ryker till we got home from vacation. Something told me that driving 10 hours always with a newly potty trained 2 year old would not be smart. Yall, potty training is HARD and  that is all I have to say about that! But, other than that, this age is so incredibly cute, ya'll!
Like, I don't even care that he's not potty trained and I'd change his diapers forever if he'd stay this little. He is SO FUNNY! The things he says cracks us up! Last night Raigen was making her rounds telling everyone goodnight and he hugged and kissed her and whispered, "Dood night babe." Or When he wakes up he'll say, "Dood mornin' sunshine!" Or We were driving in the car the other day and he said, "Sissy, watch dis," and yelled, "shut up, DAD!" And then laughed, hysterically! (Actually we all did!) Or When I tell him to let me change his diaper he'll say…

Our 2017 Summer Vacation! Branson, Missour!

So, it's taken me way too long to recap this trip of ours. I am sure at this point it's not even interesting to you but I want to be able to look back and see this for myself! Our trip was so wonderful and low key! We didnt get a chance to do half of our to-do list in Branson, but that's okay! All the kids basically wanted to do was swim in our hotel's indoor/outdoor pool and eat junk food! Haha! 

This was one of our cheapest trips! We literally only spent $500 since our hotel was FREE! #bransononabudget

How'd we score our entire hotel stay FREE? I booked a timeshare tour. A 45 minute tour of a timeshare in Branson and they gave us a free week stay in Branson AND a $150 VISA gift card! #score! 

Believe it our not, they didn't even pressure us! And I would 100% do it again!

If you have ever been to Branson then you know that you can spend some money so I researched some fun money saving things to do! I knew we weren't venturing to Silver Dollar City or White Wat…
