This Jean Skirt

Is totally out of style...

...and hasn't been worn in 8-9 years!!

So I have been on a mission since November 2012. I dieted throughout the holidays and had a very stressful couple of months after New Years. I slipped up and made mistakes and started fresh the next day. It wasn't easy at first but every day is a little easier. I started doing Zumba a couple times a week and walk at least one or more times a week. I've also taken over push mowing our yard! I am pleased to say the hard work has paid off and I have LOST 50 LBS!!!

Although 50 lbs is a huge accomplishment, I want more. I had a goal weight in mind, which is less than what I weighed in high school. I don't really know if its realistic, but the more weight I lose, the less I worry about that number! I just want to feel good about where I land and I'm not quite there yet :)

Memorial Day

We've had a relaxing weekend so far. We grilled. We fished. Now, we relax. Enjoy and don't forget why we celebrate this long weekend! Thanks to all those who gave their lives!

iPhone Catch Up!!

So I am trying super hard to get back into the blogging thing. My life has been a crazy mess the last several months. Marriage is hard, life is hard, and we are dealing with it the best we can. I will share more details on future posts, but here are some pics to get you caught up!

My bestie and I making funny faces to crack each other up!

Girls Weekend

This weekend, I stayed with my friends girls while she was out of town. We had such a fun time! Saturday morning started out with soccer practice for the 2 youngest girls. This is Katy hanging out the sunroof while we are waiting on our fries at McDonald's.


After practice and lunch, we made chocolate chip cookies. I think we ate more dough than cookies :)

Lindsey, Katy, Lily --dough is ready to eat :)

No girls weekend is complete without a game of monopoly, right? This game lasted approximately 4.3216 hours before we gave up and declared Katy the winner because she had the most money!

Fake Smile..I really want this game to be over...

Lins drinking Magic Shell with a straw

Lindsey is now surreal for me considering I've know her since she was 4-5. She's really a little young lady now. Did you know that Magic Shell is really fake choclate in a bottle with real chocolate flavoring? I'm still laughing at that one. Did you know Channing Tatum appeals to 13 year olds as well as 27 year olds? Damn him for being so versatile :) Did you know that it is possible to have a phone hooked to your ear for 25 hours per day? It's seriously like a 3rd arm for her. Did you know that poop/fart jokes are not just for adolescent boys? Neither did I :)

We had such a fun weekend! Love these girls so much!

One More Time

So, we all know I'm a huge Gary Allan fan! When I bought his new album, I was instantly drawn to this song. We all make mistakes, but I think life is really about the impression you leave on other people's lives. This song really has me thinking, to say the least!

What will I say?
Lookin’ back upon this life
Standin’ there at the pearly gates
To a golden street paradise
Feelin’ humble, no room up there for pride
What will I say?

Well, I know that I’ve
Messed up more than a time or two
I’ve lived like hell, I’ve done it well
And I’ve got the scars to prove
When I show up alone at heaven’s door
Will I be proud of what I’ve done
Or will I be begging for

One more time
One more chance
One more trip around the sun
One more dance
Another day
To get it right
Yeah, one more kiss
One more touch
Another song
Another night
Just one more time

Just wanna make sure
That I did it all right
I just wanna make sure
I loved and cared and gave with all my might
‘Cause there’ll be a moment
Yeah, there always is
When I won’t get another day like this

One more time
One more chance
One more trip around the sun
One more dance
Another day
To get it right
Yeah, one more kiss
One more touch
Another song
Another night
Just one more time

And of course, a pic! :)

Up All Night

I am blessed with awesome friends! Jackie and I have known each other for 10 years or something like that. We've been through a lot of the past 6 months and I don't know what I'd do without her! We had a night out on the town Saturday night and we both had so much fun. I can't wait to do it again!
BFFs :)
