He's HERE!!!!

Here are a few shots of our little monster! I know it's so unlike me but I'm speechless.
Let the pictures speak for themselves.
Align CenterHis tiny little feet.
He has long narrow toes and feet just like our mom.
The little guy must've been hungry.
Awwww factor!
You're witnessing our meet cute!
I loved him even before I met him.
Tia Marcy & Tia Mita!
I wonder what he'll call us....
The Infante Clan
I loved this shirt!!

And, a video....I love him!

Waiting Room

Contractions are closer and closer. My poor sister-in-law is such a ninja. She's quietly enduring the pain. My brother is silently sitting at her side just holding her hand. I can't help but wonder....when did he become a man?

It feels like it was just yesterday that he was my punk brother nemesis. Y'all wouldn't even be able to understand nor believe how often and how hard he and I fought. I have to half smile just thinking about the chaos growing up in our home. I sometimes miss those days.

I miss his baseball games.
I miss atomic fireballs that took me half a day to finish.
I miss sunflower seeds.
I miss walking to our local swimming pool.
I miss living in my swim suits.
I miss eating bologna and cheese sandwiches with wrinkled wet fingers.
I miss the smell of chlorine in the morning.
I miss the way the sun would wipe us out after a long day in the water.
I miss sweet sun kissed skin.
I miss playing Marco Polo.
I miss hanging out at the bottom of the pool watching people swim above me.
I miss the sound of our home waking up on a Saturday morning before a swim meet.
I miss my mom braiding my hair....even those she'd braid it so tight that I'd end up looking Asian!
I miss the sound of my dad singing down the hallway.
I miss childhood.

It'll be interesting to relive it through this next generation. I hope they (our future children) will have as much fun as we once did and continue to have. My heart is aching to start this next chapter.

Waiting and Waiting....

We're at the hospital waiting for the arrival of our baby nephew! I'm listening to the baby's heart beat and my brother rant about texting.... now he's dancing to the baby's heart beat. It's kinda cool killin' time with my family.  I'll keep you updated. 

While we wait I came across these photos. I miss days like these..... summer Jupiter House time. 



when will we do this again?

5am my cell phone alarm goes off and I'm so sleepy I just kept letting it ring. I finally rolled over and turned on my lamp. It's official....I'm getting up but you better believe that I hoped that Angie B (my optimistic "wogging" partner) would text to say that she was dead or something! :)

You know it's going to be a hot day when one is hot and sticky at 5:30am.

These two FREAKIN' frogs always seem to be the same spot every Tuesday and Thursday!! I don't like them!!! Eww just thinkin' about them gives me the heebee-jeebies! It's their beady eyes, lips, face, legs,'s their everything! Ok. I'm fine. really! next subject!

Angie, also affectionately known as Andrea, is almost as bad as Sir Chadwick with one HUGE exception! She smiles when she's torturing me where Chadwick wouldn't smile but instead got this wicked gleam in his eyes when he was killing me dead! Y

I'm proud to say that we jogged quite a bit this morning. And by "quite a bit" I mean by my standards which was from lamp post to lamp post in intervals. Oh yeah....good times! I was breathing like a mad woman and sweatin' like a pork chop in a smoke house, but in the end I felt great!

I finally hit a good brick training. After our 2 mile wog I did a 4 mile bike ride. I so much prefer riding to wogging. For real!

On another note Chadwick and I are swimming. He asked me to help him become a better swimmer and I can't even tell you how sweet it's been to bust his chops in the water. I'm sad to report that only after a few weeks the man is a becoming an amazing swimmer. He can almost keep pace with me on 50meters, granted he is quite a bit taller than I am and happens to possess long monkey arms! I'm proud of him. Way to go, Mikey! And, by "way to go" I mean get yourself ready...reverse trainer day is going to be a BLAST!!! haha!

Ummmm, Eureka park is not joking about preserving a natural habitat. Last Friday night I came across a snake, a raccoon and a HUGE coyote! Don't you think it's so odd that I don't flip out about snakes but when I encounter a frog I become the ultimate girlie girl? It seems that these last few mornings that I've met with Angie and we've come across those stubborn frogs you'll find me whining "Ahhhh! Angie!! Get it!!!" She'll usually just laugh and stomp them away....that's my cue to squeal on by!

What else is going on?.... Oh yeah! Big news!! Our family is expecting our nephew on Wednesday!! It still hasn't hit me that we're going to have an addition to the Infante family. I hope he has the cutest and most chubby legs! I hope that he has the best smile! I hope he loves the Lord with a burning passion. I hope he's magnetic! And, I hope that he drives my brother bananas!!! ;) Love you, David!

Oh, and it was fun running into some other close friends (Sara & Ren) at Eureka this morning. My heart swells everytime I think about how blessed I am (we are) to have such wonderful friends! God is good. All the time!

I LOVE this song!!!

I had a pretty quiet weekend. It was a sweet time for relaxing, reflecting and diggin' on this song!! I know it's different but his voice coupled with the fiddle just strums my heart strings!! listen!


I was scrolling through some photos this weekend and came across these little gems. They sorta gross me out but I still can't help but laugh! As you'll notice they were taken circa 2008 Christmas time. Just random weekend at home.... this is how I amuse myself!
If this was a before and after would y'all still love me?! LOL Actually, all you haters out there....DON'T ANSWER THAT QUESTION!!!

Parker Poo Poo

This picture caught my eye today. Anytime the blinds are drawn and the sun is shining this is where you'll find my sister's sun devil. He'll lay in the sun until his ears and belly are bright red. When he gets really really hot he'll lay there and just pant. That's our que to remove him from the sun...I'm certain he'd lay there 'til he was crispy piece of bacon.

His Name: Parker formerly known as the artist...Cashew
His Nicknames:
Parker Poo Poo
Little PP
Mr. Anderson
I know I'm forgetting a few.....

I love when.....

God lovingly reminds me of the purpose He LONG AGO set before me. I keep coming back to the same point in the insanity circle. It's all about me. Only when I've surrendered my will and body to the Glory of God does my heart and body follow in line toward health. What a painfully sweet reminder that I'm utterly helpless without Him.

Read this blog post by CR and you'll quickly see what I'm referring to.

Sad Fact

As you know I was working from Panera for most of the day while our Internet was down at the office. Allow me to recap my nutritional disaster........................

8:15am * Hungry and ready to eat me a bagel*
On my way to the counter I noticed a cute baked egg souffle! I asked the cashier-checker chica what she thought of them and she highly recommended the spinach and bacon souffle. So, I said "I think I'll try that. it looks pretty...." She then asks "will that be all?" I hesitant and look to my left where i notice the yummy bagels. I say "I'll also take a cinnamon crunch bagel and a small hazelnut cream cheese. OH, and a coffee." BTW I hardly EVER ....EVER crave coffee today it sounded yummy....
*side note.... The souffle was "eh...." and the bagel was yummy! yes, i ate it all! I even finger licked the hazelnut cream cheese tub. Sick. I know.*

1:45pm I'm sorta hungry but not really....I got a msg that the net was fixed at the office and thought that i'd better grab some lunch now before heading out to the office. Whatever!! should'nt have done it!

I got the pick two. 1/2 Chicken Cobb Salad & 1/2 Broccoli Cheddar Soup ....with more bread.
I wasn't all that hungry but everything tasted so yummy. Gluttony was in full effect! Oh, and i failed to mention just now that I also ordered (which I NEVER do) a .99 cent Toffee Nut cookie!

Cookie was devoured around 3:30.

3:45pm My jeans are uncomfortable. I'm feeling icky....this wild idea runs through my mind. Yeah...I should track my points.

I just tracked my points. I wanna die! And, I want y'all to feel the agony with me... Here goes!

Order of madness goes as follows: Calories, Fat, Fiber = Point Value

Spinach & Bacon Souffle - 570, 37g, 2g = 14 points!!! so not worth it in the end....
Cinnamon Crunch Bagel - 430, 8g, 3g = 9 points!! Was it worth it? hellz ya!
Hazelnut Cream Cream - 200, 19g, 0g = 6 points. I could've easily only had half and been totally satisfied! glutton = Marcy....
Hazelnut Coffee - i didn't even track this sucker.... i had 2 cups. I don't want to know.

Chicken Cobb Salad - 490, 35g, 3g (full serving size) = 12 points. I had a 1/2 svg.
Broccoli Cheddar Soup - 290, 16g, 7g (full serving) = 6 points for 12 oz. Not sure if this for the large bowl or the small
French Baguette - 150, 0g, 1g - 3 points = yes, so worth it!

Ready for the damage? A total of 55 points were consumed thus far!!!! I'm allowed 38 points per day. It's amazing how much my brain can wrap around the points value. If I had better eating habits and chose to eat more whole foods and less processed foods I wouldn't have the needs for point tracking, but because my brain fails to function well in understanding foods and because my heart isn't submitting to the authority of Christ in the area of food my body is suffering....

When will the madness end?

Happy Monday!

Got to the office extra early only to find that our router was down.
I'm working from Panera today.....

To all my super duper friends that are off for the summer....
please know that I'm SUPER DUPER jealous!!!!

I found a new event!!!!

So, I've been a bit blah lately! I know! I know!.... BUT!!! I found a new event!

Check it out here!!

I haven't decided which distance I'm going to tackle. The 300 meter swim for the tri took me about 7 minutes and during that 7 minutes I had a minor freak out. However, I can't tell you if it was the temp of the water or the nerves of the event that got me all wrapped around my axel but I seriously had to give myself a talking to and it went something like this....

Marcy #1 "OMG!!!!! I can't do this!!!! WHAT THE HECK????!!!"
Marcy #2 "SHUT UP!! YOU'RE A SWIMMER!!! Get your face back in the water!"
Marcy #1 "OMG I can't breath!!!! I can't breath! I can't do this!!! My armpits and boobs are frozen!!!! My googles are fogged over! I can't see!"
Marcy #2 "Really? Really!?!!? Armpits and boobs?! Get moving! DO THIS!!!! Forget the googles just go!"
Marcy #1 "Ok. Ok....Ok?"
Marcy #2 "Oh, is cold! just keep going and watch out the 'tard on the kayak!!"
Marcy #1 & 2 *small mental whimper/whisper* " I going to die today?"

I imagined Him slowly shaking his head from side to side, putting his hand over his face and saying "Oh my sweet, special in the head, overly dramatic child....Just go! I'm with you!"

I hope you enjoyed that bit of space in my head.... Soooooo, I'm debating between the 750m which will require some effort and the 1500 meters would be a major mental challenge. I'll let you know what I decide.

Can you tell that I'm excited?!?! Finally!

I'm curious to know...

What is the best super hero power?

I want to fly like Superman. Whee!

Mind reading - What do you really think?

Super strength -Never again will the pickle jar go unopened

Invisibility - Now you see me, now you don’t.

writer's block

I'm suffering. I have nothing to blog about... sad, huh?
