Labor Day Weekend

We had a great Labor Day weekend!  My Mom and Dad drove to visit from Arkansas.  We love it when they come to see us because we miss them so much!  We mostly just hung out and rented some movies, they played with Connor, and Mom and I went to Sam Moon. 

On Sunday we drove to Glenrose and looked at dinosaur tracks and that was pretty cool!  It's quite a hike up the mountain to the top....whew!  Thank goodness the weather has cooled down the last few days and it was so nice outside.  Afterwards we ate at the Cracker Barrel for lunch.  I just love their gift shop and the food is so good too....it reminds me of fall home cooking :-)

Then Monday they headed back home and I did some laundry and cleaned the house up.  We did our grocery shopping and then chilled at home all day with the windows open.  It was in the 60's yesterday morning! CRAZY! 

And....back to the daily grind today......

I think I need to go back to the Doctor.  I don't know what is going on with me lately.  My hormones are all over the place and I have hot flashes all the time.  That sounds strange doesn't it?  I'm 30, but I feel so old.  My joints are tighter & I feel like an old woman these past few weeks.  It seems like no matter what I do exercise and diet wise I keep gaining weight???  The Doctor put me back on birth control, but I'm still bleeding when I'm not supposed to be....I'm just an emotional hormonal wreck right now & I don't know what's wrong :(  Maybe my body is still trying to get adjusted after pregnancy and breastfeeding for so long...but I figured at this point things would even out.  Anyone have any advice?

Hope ya'll had a good weekend!

 We also had some yummy Mexican food!
AND I am so excited about fall shows coming back on!

I can't wait for this show called the Ringer on CW to come out! Yay for the return of Sarah Michelle Gellar!

Sorry about your hormonal issues, etc! Maybe it's not hormonal and just lots of things going on in life, being a mommy, etc. I think I was pretty emotional, etc for well over a year after I had my baby boy. I hope you get it sorted out soon. It stinks to not feel like yourself! Maybe have your thyroid tested too, if you haven't already??

We love Glenrose and the dinosaur park. We went out there earlier in the year, and had BBQ in town.

Where did you have Mexican at? It looks good!

Oh it looks like you had such a good weekend! I'm so excited that y'all had nice weather and were able to visit with your parents!

I'm SO sorry about your medical issues! I wish I understood our bodies more! It totally sucks when it does things out of our control and knowledge! I hope you get it figured out soon and I promise to be praying for ya!! Hang in there lady!

Love ya lots!!

Sounds like an awesome weekend - and yay for cooler weather - we are loving it too - although its wreaking havoc on us down here with wildfires now - boo!

Have you had your thyroid checked? I know that can get all crazy after having a baby - not sure if it would affect moods and stuff although its all hormone related so I can't see why it wouldn't? Hope you get some answers soon - no fun feeling blah!

Looks like terrific weekend!! So fun...

Do I get a vote? I vote you go and see a doc. You have too much going on to deal with what you're going through. I hope you find some relief soon.

I would ask the Dr. to check your thyroid. I hope you find out what's going on!

I hope you get everything worked out with your hormone problems. That is just no fun to deal with along with every day stressers on top of that. Sorry to hear this. Your pictures are gorgeous as always and that little back pack for C looks like its working out great. He looks like he likes it ok.

This new Sarah Michelle Geller show does look very interesting. Cant wait to check it out. Going to put it in my Erin Condren life planner so I dont forget...gosh I love that thing :)
