5 on Friday

I'm linking up again this Friday for the 5 things I'm loving lately!
#1. Shelby is 7-months old today! We are amazed at how much she has grown!
Her school is so great in that they do arts and crafts with them then send us home with pictures.
This picture was from July 3rd. I just love the hat and doesn't she look so grown up?
Brad can't stand it. He wants her to stay a baby.

#2. I'm loving that I'm 3 or 4 pounds from my goal weight! I want to be 118(I'm 5'4 1/2"), and yesterday I got on the scale and it said 120!
I couldn't believe it! 
Granted this morning it said 122, after eating a couple of pieces of pizza last night. BUT STILL! I was about 125 when I got pregnant, then gained 28-pounds, so this is the last of it, that I wanted to lose before I got pregnant.
I haven't even been working out as much as I should because of my toe issue and what not.
I've learned that it really is about food.

My determination really kicked in with this dress. 

I thought I was doing pretty good until I put it on and it was tight in the chest and rib area. I made it my mission to have it look better.

Instead of allowing myself to eat whatever on the weekends, I've stuck to healthy eating and moderate portions. This my friends, I believe has been key!!
I hope to lose this last little bit even if it takes me a while!

#3. Loving that these flowers have been alive for 2-weeks now! All thanks to my Mom's advice on putting them in straight up ginger ale. 
You can do it with any flowers and it will help them live. It's the sugar they like.

#4. Old photos! My cousin posted this to Facebook last night and I just laughed. 
This was 1995, I was 19-years old and getting ready to enter my junior year in college.

#5. Last but not least I'm loving that we have fun plans for the entire weekend! Cooking out, boating and hanging with my 2favs!
Brad and Shelby!

You look amazing, even in your #throwbackthursday pic! I think I had that dress. You have to share some sample menus. I've been working with a trainer, but still slip up with food. Would love some examples of how you do it!

I think I had a dress very similar to that in about '95 too!! Congrats on your weight, that is wonderful and sounds super tiny. And as always, Shelby is beautiful.

You look amazing! I need your willpower. Weekends are my downfall. I'm going to bombard you for tips tomorrow!

That is great about your weight. Unfortunately, I've got to cut back because I've really gained. I think it is all about the food.

I love Shelby's school photos.
