Let me also say welcome with a big ole Texas HOWDY!!! to all my new followers. Most of y'all found me through Mama Laughlin....she is just so awesome and a true inspriation to me! So thanks for following me on this journey and welcome, welcome, welcome. New people make me Happy, Happy, Happy!!! (Yes, I LOVE Duck Dynasty!)
Check back tomorrow because I will have my second give away posted.......FUN STUFF!!!!!!!
Ok....I am going to do some recapping and truths all in one!
*Single parents rock! (especially if you have to work full time and be a single parent) I get so overwhelmed, exhausted, cray cray that I just cannot imagine having to work full time (outside of the home) and take care of my boys on top of that. I will say staying home with my boys is a full time job, more than full time, but it is the most rewarding job I could have ever been privileged to work. I love them with every fiber of my being....even when I want to ship them off to Timbuktu for forever! So, a BIG shout out to all you ladies & gentlemen who do it on your own, all of the time!
*I miss my BFF, Courtney, and her family. We are so blessed that Dan, Courtney, and Jake are not just our best friends but they truly are family. We all ended up in Spring, Texas back in 2009 (before kids) and we were just meant to be best friends. Dan joined the Army the same month we moved back to DFW. He just returned home from a year long deployment. So they were in town for about a week to visit all of their DFW peeps. We did have them over for dinner on Monday and it was just like old times....plus 3 kids! (so, a little crazy!) The headed home on Tuesday and it just makes me sad to be so far away from them. But, Lord willing, we will be back in the same Metro area in the next couple of years!
*Dieting/Exercise SUCKS!!!! I weighed in yesterday for a .2 pound loss.....I so don't even consider that a loss! Whatever! I am sure it will just take some time to see the changes on the scale. I feel good. I feel like I am making smarter food choices and drinking a ton of water. I am not exercising as much as I should be. My mom and I are going to try Zumba on Monday night. Let's hope I like it!
*And the last one....I am not sure blogging is for me. I really don't know if I will keep this little thing going. It can easily consume you and I don't need anything else pulling me in another direction. I have my hubby, my boys, a business that I NEED to focus on, and I need to work on losing these 35 pounds. I know that I cannot be a blogger that posts everyday. We will see what happens.
And no post is complete with out pictures.....
