this will be me when i get married xD
I started a blog that will document my lifestyle changes and upkeep as far as fitness and health are concerned.
I have lost 29 lbs in the last 4 months but want to lose about 25-30 more. I am at the halfway point and with the upcoming holidays and cold weather making me more prone to eating fresh baked cookies while sipping on hot chocolate, I need to stay motivated and committed more than ever
1. Kids are pretty fucking awesome so stop treating them like burdens. They’re kids, not cancer.
2. It’s your job as a parent to be exhausted. It doesn’t make you a special cupcake.
3. The baby stage? Easiest stage of all.
3. Don’t get pregnant if your intention is to pawn your child off every weekend while you go and “have a social life.” Bullshit. No amount of “social life” is worth leaving your kid 4 days a week so mommy can get shitfaced and flirt with bartenders.
I’d like to add, if you thought raising a child would be easy and then were shocked to find out it’s actually quite challenging, you’re an idiot.
Look at your parents. All those gray hairs, those are your fault.

2010 was a great year for us. Stressful at times, but life-changing and memorable. Our first (and only) baby for born to us in June of 2010 and she has been a joy to our lives. We moved a couple times this year (and will probably move again this year). 2010 was a year of change, or maturing, of growing yet finding our inner child. It was a year of intense emotions, of pleasure and pain, of love beyond what we had ever experienced before-not just for Zoe but for each other.
Having a child has brought Ben and I together closer than ever. We love our little family. It’s what we always wanted in our hearts. The timing wasn’t ideal but it worked out for the BEST! God never gives you something you can’t handle.
And God has truly blessed us this past year.
I look forward to 2011! This is going to be another great year, another great adventure. Zoe will have her 1st birthday this year, she will grow so much and there are so many new experiences to be brought about for her and for us this coming year.
Job-wise, I hope to be in a less stressful more fulfilling position.
We both want to better our bodies and our minds:
My “resolutions” include: Being more organized, Exercising more, Reading more, Scrapbooking more and Eating healthier.
We also hope to move into a better place in the not so distant future.
Here’s to 2011! a new year, a new time to experience new things. I wish everyone a great year. Make the best of it. After all, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT. We are controllers of our destinies. We sometimes forget that, but really, the potential to lead a happy satisfying life is in all of us.
Yesterday, we decided to take Zoe to meet Santa for the first time:
She looked at him a little funny at first but was happy!
No traditional Crying Baby and Santa pic here!
And here are some pre-santa visit:
This last one is a favorite of mine.
This is our first Christmas time as a family and I am so blessed to have a loving man and amazing little daughter in my life.
