Score!  Here’s a list of my most recent rockstar accomplishments:

Yes, of course this is actually me…
obviously I’m this fit and can jump that high 😉

1. I took both kids to the grocery store and left with everything on my list.  Wait, I don’t think you’re getting it fully.  Let me try again…I took both kids to the grocery store and left with everything on my list.

2. I have managed to throw very few temper tantrums while “patiently” waiting for the start of the Summer Olympics 2012 and Mindy Kaling’s new show, The Mindy Project (due out in the fall).

3. I have not forgotten the double stroller since that ill-fated day in April after which I understood my family to be banned from the Carters store.

4. I have managed to slug it out with my dear Jillian Michaels more days than not as of late.  This is probably the only thing on this list of which I should seriously be proud.  Trust me, I am.

5.  I have not managed to walk into a Kohls store for 4 months.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Kohls, but every time I walk in, I find amazing deals, leave with a boatload of stuff and get a ridiculous high when the bottom of the receipt tells me that I saved (on average) $1500.

6.  I successfully went to a bachelorette party in my decrepit old age and managed to actually stay up past 9pm.

7.  I can report that no one has broken any major bones in our house since October.

8.  When the early childhood “witching hour” (from about 4pm until bedtime) arrives, I typically break down and cry no more than twice/week.

9.  I have not hysterically looked up some mysterious potentially made-up medical condition on WebMD for at least 3 days. (Yes, hypochondria may be the safest diagnosis here).

10.  I managed to think of ten things I can claim as accomplishments to round out this list and provide a nice, even number…

    I think #1 is by far the most impressive. *high five*


    #8, #9 – YES, and YES. lol
    You are on a roll – you go girl!!


    yayay you're on a roll!


    You rule, Momma!

    Totally proud of you for rocking out the Jillian DVD. JUST finished the first workout on the Ripped in 30 DVD (which is why I am now on the computer…feels like that is the most activity I could handle right now) and I really, really liked it. She is more insane, yes, but I like the format a bit better…we'll discuss tomorrow! 😉


    #6 is my favorite. I didn't know there was more than one nine o;clock in the day.


    Oh you're a riot Darling! Cups Up to your victories… xoxo




    I can relate to #6! Not only is my bedtime EARLY but my sleep is SO precious to me since I've had my son…and he's actually a good sleeper! I just NEED my sleep more than ever now and it pains me to attend “late events” even if I really want to go! lol!


    I love your list. It's a list that could have fit my life too. I JUST picked up a Jillian Michaels DVD. I can't wait to give it a try!


    You're too funny! Great job on the Jillian workouts!


    I am super impressed with 1 and 8! I will have to get some tips from you! I have been holding Lucy while trying to make dinner (one handed) which is completely impossible…. But it is the only thing that stops the screaming!


    congrats to you!!! I like your list!!


    Haha- funny list because I can so relate to #1. Want to hear my funny- I went to Walmart with both kids this am and totally forgot my list. Ended up buying 3 bags of lollipops just to appease my screaming 4 year old. And yes- Jillian Michaels- she is the hardcore! I do her video on the WII


    You ROCK! Seriously . . . EVERYTHING on your list? I don't even do that when I don't have any of my kids! :) Thanks for linking up last week! Stop by this week and link up again . . . I'd love to hear more of your victories! They are inspirational! :)
