Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I love ya Tomorrow! :)

Well, GAHHHHLY It is soooo good to be back! I seriously had no intention of taking a 6 week break, but it seemed every night I would sit down and get my laptop @ midnight and I was just pooped! I kept telling myself I would do it tomorrow and then again tomorrow. Well, apparently this "tomorrow" has been a success, because I am here and posting!!! :) WOOHOO

I spent a lot of February being quite crafty! I LOVED it. I made some heart shaped wreaths and then my husband and I started making really cute headbands! We have spent some serious time in Hobby Lobby together picking out the ribbons for the headbands. They are great for when I workout because they don't slip or cause headaches after wearing them a while!

This is the one for my front door

I made this one for a friend

This one I made for my Mom

I will have to take some pics of the headbands and post them! They are soooo cute you guys!

My Son started working out as soon as he gets out of school and wanted us to workout together. I had been thinking about doing 2 workouts a day but when he asked me to join him there wasn't anyway I was going to say no. It has been really good and we have a great time challenging one another. My only trouble has been that my weight has stayed the same. After 4 weeks of the same weight, I was told to up my protein and that my body was holding onto everything it could. So I am trying to do that as well as, eating small meals every 2-3 hrs.

I just got a SlimCoach! It is the Biggest Loser's device that helps you track calories in/out, heart rate, diet plans and if you have met your daily goal as far as activity. I set it up tonite and it looks awesome! I am hoping to lose that final 15 lbs!!!

Speaking of losing things.... One of my dear bloggy friends shared her frustration about the word verification box. I had just decided I needed to lose that annoying thing and then after reading her post I knew it was a goner!!
Ahhh. Feels so good to rid yourself of those letters no one could read and wasting your time trying to figure it out every single time!! ;)
Anyway, it should be gone! and if it isn't PLEASE let me know!!

Nope, you are NOT seeing things!

Your morning cup o'joe was NOT De-Caf and NO, it wasn't spiked either..... :) You ARE reading a current edition of
"The MAGOOS News!"

Our sources tell us that the Author will be returning tomorrow after an extended blog Break ~ She has been quite busy,

and while she did have lots of fun while she was away, she has shared with us how much she has missed you all and is so

excited to catch up with each one of you!!!

Here's a quick peek into what's she's been up to:

This Sweet little boy turned 1!! He is walking everywhere, and keeps everyone laughing with his silly facial expressions ♥

Her Momma had a birthday AND has also RETIRED! (Can you say HALLELUAH!!!) They have been spotted around town having lunch, taking road trips, and of course shopping. A few of the shopping trips have proved to be quite humorous and sources say they were seen and heard laughing uncontrollably in a local dressing room - This, is definitely something we will have to hear more about, don't you think??

Her Son also had a birthday and turned 15 years old! (I don't know about you but that is ALOT of birthdays!!) She is forever saying how she would love to slow down the hands of time! (wouldn't we all) Over this past weekend her son attended his 8th grade formal. Rumor has it boys can keep you guessing until the very day of formal as to what exactly their plans will be. Which just might explain the crazy expression on her face in this picture! ;)

Of course she loves being a Noni! So anytime she and Papa spend time with these two it's full of joy, and lots and lots of laughter!! (seriously, who couldn't resist a face like this..... ?)

She was given a surprise gift from her Dear Husband on Valentines Day.... Tickets to see Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson Immortal Tour. She really can't wait to share this story with everyone!

As I said earlier, she truly has missed everyone and will be thrilled to hear from you!
