(...Something Josh won't eat!)

A Boca Veggie Burger with a "thins" bun!!
I found these veggie burgers at Sam's and they are the best! Not quite as good as a real thick juicy burger, but still pretty tasty! And for the nutritional value - you can't go wrong! I've had this the past couple nights for dinner. I usually find something that I like, then eat it all the time, then I end up getting sick of it. It's a vicious cycle. Anyway, it's good and you should try it!

I had a little weight loss set back last week because of all the delicious 4th of July food around, and overall I've kind of plateaued. I hear that's normal, so I am just going to keep plugging away, and I will eventually get to my goal! I'm getting a little tired of measuring out my cereal each morning, and counting everything I eat, but it's the only way for me to be completely accountable for what I'm eating. I'm still trying to get to the gym more often, but overall I've increased my activity. How are you all doing?

This is my 100th post, and it's not even exciting! I've been in a blogging slump lately, so I'll just attach a few pictures I like...

Sisters watching TV together.

"It's a Romes" as Uncle Mike would say.

This cute bunch of kids (and their parent's of course) are coming to visit us later this month! I can't wait to see them all!!

  1. Those kids are cute I bet their parents are beeyoutiful :)

  2. The Morning Star Spicy Black Bean Burgers are good. And Billy will eat them for dinner.

  3. I love the boca burgers, I got them at costco last week and have been eating them everyday for lunch (on an english muffin). I also agree with Life of Joy...the M.S. BBB are also really really yummy!


  4. I don't mind the Boca Burgers, but I LOVE the Boca or Morningstar "Chick" patties. Add a slice of cheese, some mayo, and a mustard of your choice and you're good to go!

    As for jogging, I don't do it...but I've been using the Bowflex at work for a few months now and love it. I think I need to talk my boss into buying a new set of 50lb "Power Rods" since I'm maxing the thing out. Yeah that's right ladies, 100% muscle....if you can look past the hair and excess fat. :)

  5. I've never had a veggie burger. I usually like to stick w/my meat products. lol

  6. You don't know me, but after reading this post, you must try the veggie burgers from Costco! They are by Don Lee Farms and they are the best veggie burgers EVER!! You can do soooo much with them instead of just eating a burger.... my favorite is crumbling it up in a sundried tomato tortilla with spinach, cheese, black beans, corn and ranch dressing. Seriously, it's amazing! Try them! =)

    Ok, ha! Sorry to just barge in, but I've followed your blog for a while now and I'm always praying for you guys. I felt now was the appropriate time to stop in and comment...lol. I love food, so it seemed right =)

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
