Attack of the Capital V..

My house has been plagued with the big 'V' or big 'T' however you want to call is mostly my 5 year old(it's not gastro though, I just think the child ate too much of a good thing yesterday);so there has been a lot of bathroom runs, cleaning up and washing bed linens.. I am pooped.
But since I am finally feeling the SPRING air here in Montreal, here is a little quote:

Earth Day.

Today is earth day, so here are some tips that even the least earth conscious person can follow for a greener tomorow:

1. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle.
Get a couple of green recycle boxes for your house, it makes it easier when tossing things you can just flip the plastics and cardbord stuff in your bins

2.When not in use turn of the lights.

3.When bruhing your teeth use a cup full of water instead of letting the faucet run.

4.Think twice before pushing the PRINT button of the copier/print machine

Happy Earth Day!

Bye Bye Lumps..

They are officially gone! My lumps, my bazookas whatever you want to call them, have officially deflated. I have never been one to covet thy neighbors assets but lately I have realized that I am on the shorter end in some areas.

After having a baby (or babies in my case) most women usually think about how they are going to loose the weight and get back to their original goddess selves; that was also my case a couple of months ago. After baby #2, I was sure that things would never revert back body wise.. well, I was right; don't get me wrong I did loose the baby weight but I surely did not get my old body back.

I only had set myself up to loose some of the weight as I am not a fan of the size small (on me) and I really do like a litte junk in my trunk (the hubby likes that VERY much too) but for some reason all the exercises and yoga streches did nothing to revive the shriveled and flat lumps and chompas; but I am not one to despair nor give up 'I will get my lumps back!'.

At least one person is cute and chubby in this family

I am a bit sleep deprived right now; baby Zazou has been battling a horrible end- of-winter-beginning-of-spring cold; which basically means: sick baby no sleeping for mommy... but a little Lauren Hill always get me going...

Check this out and tell me what you think.
