My favorite song:

This is a tough one I love so much music and so many different types that I can never pick just one song that I love. I'll pick one album that I have been listening to alot lately and that is the Newsboys! Their new album "Born Again" is awesome and I love every song on it! Here's a few videos of my favorites off the album:-)

"Born Again"

"One Shot"

"Remake of Jesus Freak!"

R&R, Yes Please...

We just got back from our vacation to Hammock Beach and it was FANTASTIC! It may have been the first vacation that was an actual vacation. All we did was relax and go swimming. It was so nice to spend time with family and just enjoy being there. The resort is AMAZING and I can't wait to go back. Riley even went down the water slide:-) Hopefully i'll get the pics from my sister soon so I can post those. Here are some pics from our lil trip...

This Is Serious...

Lenni, Tuck &


Our daughter has a slight obsession with the Wonder Pets, so when my sister saw this in Wally World and showed it to me I couldn't pass up the opportunity! It should still fit her for Halloween so I called it a 2 for 1 special!

It's Spring Time, A Ring-A-Ling Time...

If you've watched the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Great Club House Hunt episode then you understand that title. Spring (we think) is officially here! T-Ball is off to a wonderful start and Spring Training is in full swing. To top of the wonderful month of March our Munchkin' will be turning 6 on Wed..where does all the time go? He is super excited for his b-day party next week and I found some great decorations for the "Gator" bash:) Over this past weekend I heard some heart-breaking news that a friend had lost her cousin in a car accident and that her children were fighting for themselves. The youngest lost her fight last night so I ask for you to pray for these families and that God will grant them peace and understanding. Another thing that has made me upset is the House passing the Health Care Bill, our rights have been stripped by this bill and the fact that the Dems. ignored the American people and passed this piece of Legislation shows me that our country is headed into it's final days. I am not only upset for Chris and I but mostly for Logan & Riley who ill have to pay for this bill and it's huge price tag! I know that God has control of this and that my worry goes to him but I still can't help and get aggravated at the people who voted this monster into office. Back to some good are some pics from t-ball and our trip down to Viera for Spring Training:

T-Ball, Test, & I Need Some Rest...

Wow...what a busy time we have been having over the past month! T-ball has started back, baseball season is here..and so is baby season! Everyone is expecting or has already had there precious bundle of joy. Our dear friend Jamie and her husband Mike just had their baby and he is the cutest lil' thing with the biggest feet i've ever seen. I can never remember Logan or Riley being that small! We have some baseball trips coming up and Logan is super excited to be going to games again. School is going good for Logan he is reading really good but still has some mess-ups here and can be so frustrating trying to make him get it and has made me realize that I should never take for granted the fact that I can read. It's hard as a mom watching him struggle with something that I think is so easy, but he is such a big boy and is trying his hardest. T-ball is officially back in action with opening day for Hilliard on Sat., we can't wait to watch those Rebels:-) Logan had two test this week and has his big SAT test all next week..i'm praying so hard for him and knowing that he is going to do his best! My weight loss is going good, I started back weight watchers and it has helped tremendously since I now know how much i'm suppose to be eating. They were telling me I wasn't eating enough, so let me get this straight I need to eat more to lose more..I don't understand this body sometimes. I have been going to the gym and loving it, loving it, loving makes me feel so much better about myself and have more energy through the day. Lil' miss Riley is doing great she is getting ready for her 18 month check up in a few weeks and I can't wait to see how much she has grown! She is talking more and more and learning so many new things. That's a short update on life here at the Burns, i'm hoping to slow down and have more time to update so i'll try my hardest! I would like to express my sorrow for a former classmate and friend Derik....he always knew how to make everyone smile and laugh no matter what they were going through and I just wish he would have reached out to some of us about what he was going through. He was a great person and will surly be missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know and meet him, but even more by those who called him a friend!

Oh Weight....

Week 1 of the diet really wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I got up to a mile and half walking with slight jogging and really feel so much better! I have stopped drinking the soda other than my occasional Sprite once a week...I need some carbonation! I have been cooking all our meals and we started using our grill ALOT more. It's amazing how cutting certain things out of your daily diet can make you feel so much better physically and emotionally. I really haven't had the craving for all the sweets and really bad things it's been easier to turn them down this time around. I looked into taking a supplement to help get my metabolism going and found Slim Quick rated in the top 10 for woman so i'm giving it a try. It's been almost a week and I can def. see a decrease in my food craving and eating. I know as weeks 3 comes around this wonderful feeling will fade some but I know i'm gonna keep on going until all this weight comes off and my weighting is over:-) Now that I finally have purchased a scale I hope to update on just how much weight is going Bye, Bye, Bye!
