Family Pictures: My Granddaughter and Greedy Baby. Plus, My Cousin Is In the Running for Miss Nevada!

Since I can’t get my sons, the hubs, or oldest daughter to cooperate with pictures, I’m happily loading up on pics of my granddaughter, Greedy Baby and my lovely cousin today!

First up is the granddaughter.

She’s 7 months old now and no longer whiney. Hallelujah! The child has the cutest fat rolls on her legs I’ve ever seen. She’s all cushy & squeezy ‘n stuff and I love her. I’m babysitting this weekend, but I’ve requested that the child poop before she gets to my house. The poopy diaper part I’m not excited about. GAH!

And then there’s Greedy Baby.

Even though she was bullied at school for eating salad at lunch, she is still on the salad grind and I’m damn proud of her. As you can see from the pic, she’s a little bit cray-cray like her momma.

I’m also soooo excited to share the news that my beautiful younger cousin, Lindsey Pinapfel, is in the running for Miss Nevada United States!

As you can see, my family is very diverse.  It’s one of the things I love about my extended clan. The pageant will be held in Las Vegas on April 19th. I wanted to share this here to show my support for Lindsey and to tell her that I love her.

Have a fabulous weekend, everybody! xo

Although I still get it wrong on occasion, I do it the right way enough to confidently share 3 tips you’ll appreciate.

My child is ruining my fitness life.

First, my weight training gloves went missing. Then two of my speed ropes disappeared. These items were last seen in the possession of my gremlin-child. And now? My foam roller has been turned into a Crayola shrine.

Just in case you’re wondering, those legs with the ashy knees — the ones wearing the disco dress — she is the culprit. So ya, my child is ruining my life… sorta?

But ohhhh, look at that cute little face. She’s so proud of her “art project”. I will rage no fitness-fury against the gremlin. But I will wise up and start hiding my stuff, especially since I caught her in my jewelry box this morning. As for my foam roller, that thing was previously shanked to death with a pencil before being turned into a shrine.

The violence against my fitness gear is too much for me to stand. ((sigh))
