The Return: Week 1...ish

As I mentioned, my sister just got married this last weekend and I'm still trying to recover. We had family in town, last-minute prep for the wedding, catching up from taking a couple days off work, and now Aidan has strep throat. AH! My sister's wedding was great - she looked fantastic, the ceremony was beautiful, and the reception was fun. We all love her husband, Grant, and are excited to welcome him into the family!

Wow, so many things have changed since last June! Aidan is 4 and is finishing his first year in preschool. Rhys, whom I have dubbed "my little monster", will be 2 in August. Brad is still staying at home with our kiddos and is doing a great job teaching and keeping up with them. I was promoted at work and am now the manager of the EDI department! My brother and his family moved up from Houston in November and now live 5 minutes away from us. My sister-in-law moved here from CA in October, then had her son, Nathanael, in February.

I had a physical and had my height measured, and I somehow gained and inch. It's quite possible I've had it wrong this whole time, idk. But, I'm officially 5'4".... what do you know! Like I said in my last post, I gained every ounce back that I lost my first attempt and started back at my exact same weight. Here are my starting numbers and my numbers as of today!
