Another random update...

A few things:

*I've been using mineral oil after I get out of the shower and now I'll never go back (to not using it). Just rub a ton all over yourself while you're still wet and the dry off. Instant moisturization! (is that a real word? I don't think it is.). Try it.

*I made Patrick hide the scale from me. I was becoming way too obsessed with what I weighed everyday. It was getting unhealthy and I didn't want to be a slave to working out and weighing myself and what size jeans I wore. This is a HUGE step for me and a really awesome step in the direction of loving who God created me to be.

*I'm doing a 14 day cleanse. I won't elaborate, unless you ask me personally. But. I am.

*Have I mentioned how much I love Zumba? I love being sassy while shaking my booty, while getting my sweat on, while listening to seriously awesome music. I was made to salsa dance. How did I miss this calling?!

*Benjamin said "amen" tonight when we were done praying. He is too cute and says new words everyday. I'm so amazed at all he is learning. I'm so humbled by the fact that I get to watch him learn and explore and grow. A few new words: "hold me", "up please", "elmo" - which is what he calls his stuffed panda that is necessasry in all parts of the day, "gorilla" - because his current favorite book is Goodnight, Gorilla.

*Speaking of Benjamin and being a momma. Uh - toddlers are tough! So many hard days. So little sanity. I'm so, so, so grateful for grace (and God given mercy, patience and strength).

*I turned everything in for Mother's Day Out. Although I'm slightly apprehensive about leaving my baby for almost six hours one day a week, I'm really looking forward to that one day a week.

*I've decided that the only way to get over the heat and to embrace it is by running. Outside. In the heat. Because it's always pretty hot. This only means I'll be a rockstar runner come fall :)

*Getting a zoo membership may have been one of our best investments while living in OKC, so far.

I think that's all.

Great post! Does the mineral oil leave you sticky? I'll just bet that Benjamin sounds so cure saying amen. Love you all!!!!
