NSV Link Up!

It's totes Thursday ladies woohoo!  Today I am doing Non-Scale Victories Linkup with Lex & Katie! These girls are awesome by the way click on the above links to check them out. 
Ok so non-scale victories. I feel like sometimes when I sit down to write (especially after reading some awesome blogs) that my life is pretty boring & normal. So I will try to keep you captivated through my entire post! As you have read on here before I have 3 kiddies (girls) so you know that it is TND (Total Nonstop Drama) 24-7 here at my house.  One of the things I have been trying to do is along with getting healthy incorporate more health wise activities for the kids.  I used to rush home rush in the door get started on laundry, dinner etc because I just wanted to get it done and relax.  I realized not to long ago my kids are growing so fast and one day I am going to look back and say where did all the time go and I want them to remember their child hood as a happy time.  So this week I decided that I was going to come in the door and spend an hour doing something that they wanted to do.  Of course being that there is 3 of them I will have to take turns since they range from 2 (almost 3 May 1st) to 15.  So Monday when I came home I decided ok lets go outside and do something. They all looked at me like I had 3 heads. My middle child said really and go the biggest smile on her face. We just spend the hour out in the yard the youngest one on the swing set and me and the middle one and my oldest talking and laughing and reading(they are bookworms).  Tuesday and Wednesday were much the same and last night my middle daughter said to me mom you may not be smaller yet but I am liking this healthy you! That made me feel so good. So even if the scale doesn't reflect a loss this week I know I have been victorious because my kids are happy with the new and improved MOM!
I will leave you on a funny note here are some things I came across this week that cracked me up!
Ok I know hotdogs aren't great for you but lets face it hotdogs and hamburgers are a summer time staple so I found this hot dog slicer for my 2 year old with a ketchup (or any condiment) holder on the front! Loved it and I had to have it so cute!!
Yes you aren't seeing things that's right those are condoms.  Brief side note I work at the county Health Department and we are rolling out a new campaign (Safe Sex & All) and these are the new condom packets.  I almost died when I seen them.  There were more but these two killed me. 
Hope everyone has a great Friday Eve!!  Love Ya Mean It....
