Lisa is Officially on the Fat Wagon!

I know it is a shocker that I am finally posting...I have been such a slacker lately. I really need to post pics of my cute baby girl, but that would mean I have to go downstairs to get the memory card and I am just to pooped.

Today I woke up and took Gracie over to my Mom's so that I could go to lunch with my cute friend Michelle for her bday. We went to Fredrico's which was fabulous. If it has anything to do with food for me, then it is fabulous, hence the size 16 pair of pants I am squeezing myself into daily. Michelle looked so cute and we had so much fun. Wish time didn't go by so fast so we got to see each other more often! Happy Bday to Michelle this Thursday! Love you!

Back to the squeezing into jeans bit...that is all that has been consuming my mind lately. The thyroid is getting under control and I have been on the pills now for about 6 weeks, but I still haven't lost anything and it is so frusturating. I exercise more than ever, watch what I eat, and I continue to gain a pound each and every week. I have officially outgrown everything in my closet and I refuse to go buy bigger clothes, so the poor world has to sustain retinal damage by looking at my fat, white body. I just feel yucky. It is one of those things that no matter how long I spend in front of the mirror, I am not pleased with the end project. I feel like maybe if I could just starve myself for a month, then the weight would start coming off, but then I would be dead. Just so frusturating! Grrrr...enough rambling on about me.

Gracie turns 9 months tomorrow. I can't believe my baby is growing up so fast! Where has the time gone? I am truly blessed to be able to stay home with her and raise her. I can't imagine having it any other way. I don't want to miss anything, and as much as I loved working at the hospital, I just couldn't give up my time and memories with Gracie to stay working there full time. They have been great to call me back every now and then and it is fun to see everyone and I am so lucky to have a cute Mom that can watch her when I am in a pinch. I don't trust many people with her, daycare, neighbors, etc. How sad is that? I am just Mrs. Overprotective!

Luke is in Indiana now. He has been there since Monday for work. I miss him so much. It seems like he has been gone for weeks already. Tonight I mopped the floors, vacuumed, scrubbed down the kitchen, bathrooms, cleaned the fridge...I am pooped! And carrying that extra 30+ pounds doesn't help anything, and how do I reward myself? With a big fat brownie. I justify that with the sugarfree applesauce I put in them instead of oil..hee, hee, hee.. And I wonder why I can't lose weight!

Thanks to Facebook, I have found some old friends, high school buddies and even my cousin Adam who I haven't seen in ages, so it is fun catching up with them and I love that I can stay updated with the ones that have blogs! Wahoo!

Hope all is well with everyone!

Happy Late Easter, Happy Birthdays...etc.

Things have been so busy around the Johnson home lately but I wanted to post a few pictures from Easter. We had lots of fun. Luke and I still hide each other's Easter Baskets and it was still so much fun watching him search for his Easter Basket that he can't find until I give him huge hints. Now that we are in a bigger home there were so many more hiding spots!


Yesterday was my cute Mom's 60th bday! Happy Bday Mom! And today is Luke's Dad's big 70th bday! Happy Bday Eldon! April is a big month for bdays for us.

Saturday night we had the opportunity to go to our friend's party he was having at the Sonora Grill Restaurant in Ogden. Beautiful restaurant. We tried foods that I never thought would enter my mouth. Like ceviche which is basically sushi, and mussels! Luke even tried them. It was so fun to see Dustin and his new restaurant which I am sure is going to do wonderful. Way to go Dustin!

I would be so ungrateful if I didn't take a moment to pay my respects to little Kser Nay Moo who was found dead last night in SLC. It is so tragic that such a beautiful, special little spirit was taken from this life so suddenly and so tragically and I hope that the people that are responsible for this will get the maximum punishment for this. Last night I checked on Gracie so many times just wanting to make sure she was safe and sound in her crib. I don't know how a parent adjusts to losing a child. I can't even imagine. I know these people will pay someday, but it just isn't soon enough. My heart and prayers go out to her little family at this time. Always check your doors an extra time before you go to bed. Make sure your windows are locked. There are so many scary people out there nowdays you really can't trust anyone. Hug your children tonight and every night. Give them that extra kiss, read them that extra book and love them like there is no tomorrow. I am sooooooo truly blessed and grateful for my little Gracie. We decided it would be fun to spike her hair since it is getting longer and here is the end results...
