Hello internets. I have missed you.

I feel like things have been pretty boring lately. Just living the life of the stay at home mom. But let me update you on what I've been up to.

I found a stay at home mom's group on meetup.com so we went to our first play date/lunch last week. It was at a restaurant in the neighborhood so I got to have lunch and chat with some other moms. It's a weekly thing so as long as the blizzard doesn't hit, I'll be going again this Thursday.

Oh yes, the blizzard. It started as a blizzard watch yesterday morning, which prompted me to walk around the house all morning saying "Blizzard watch" like Paul Rudd says "Panda watch" in Anchorman. It was upgraded to a warning sometime yesterday afternoon and then the storm fizzled out sometime over night. There's another blizzard watch for tomorrow. I'm sick of the snow already. Good thing it's the middle of January and this snow thing is just getting started.

I'm attempting to take Ava to the Target photo studio today for portraits. I want to get portraits done at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year and then every year after. I may change my mind, depending on how today goes. I guess I should attempt putting on some makeup in case I end up in any of these pictures.

I've started the Jillian Michaels 30-day shred again yesterday. I'm going to try to do it for 30 days and see what happens.

Fredo asked me the other night if I wanted a Wii Fit now that I'm in shape up mode. Of course I do but that would mean we would also have to get a Wii. He shouldn't have said anything because I'm thinking about buying a Wii. I hope Target doesn't have them.

And last but not least, I will leave you with something that had me giggling this morning. The local news had the weather for the next day or two scrolling across the bottom. Whoever typed it must have been typing really fast because instead of saying "80% chance of snow", it said "80% chance fo snow".

Glad you found a mom's group! It makes a huge difference having other moms you can hang out with and talk to. I really want a Wii. We finally decided to get one last week and quickly found out that they are sold out everywhere. Boo. So, I think we're going to wait until next month and then call it a birthday present.

Luckily Target didn't have one or else I may have bought one today. They're so hard to find. I always see them when I'm not going to buy one but when I'm actively looking they are always sold out.

I finally started using our Wii Fit (purchased in June) a few weeks ago. I am enjoying it, and my husband plays a lot of games on the Wii itself. I know what you mean about seeing them everywhere when you don't want one and no place when you do.

Good for you and the meetup group! I wish I would have started putting myself out there to meet other moms from the get go. I think my Bub's first year was lonelier for me than it needed to be.
