Easter morning and Daddy was mowing the grass.  So, Blake went to the window to watch and wait....

Life is good

Ever sit down and feel an overwhelming sense of happiness but you are unsure why?  I did when I sat down to write this post.  I'm not sure why.  There are things that make me sad, upset and even angry....but when it comes down to it....that's just small stuff anyways.

I'm doing better with my Scentsy business then I could have imagined I would.

I have some really awesome friends.

I have 3 beautiful children.

I have an amazing husband.

Life is good!

Sweet baby love

This boy....melts my heart!

Keep this train moving!  I lost another pound.  Not sure how I keep doing it but I like it.  Once again....I still have yet to get my butt on the treadmill but I have good intentions every day.  Hope everyone else is doing well!

Your life is about choices.  Choices you make and how you choose to deal with them.  It is easy for most people to let life and things around them get you down.  The reality is you have to work at being happy.  I choose to work.  With all the crazy crap going on....I still have a wonderful husband to come home to, three beautiful children and food on the table.  I choose to be happy.  I will not let you take that away.  I choose to enjoy time with my friends and family.  The show must go on!
I choose to smile at you when really I want to cry.  Why?  Because I am strong and I choose not to let you see me when I'm being weak.
There are to many people in this world that are going through things far worse than most people can imagine.  If you choose to complain about the little things in life that in the end don't mean anything...I choose to ignore you.
I have to say, recently I have been the happiest I've ever been in years.  I'll be damned if anyone changes that.

Happy hump day to everyone!

I lost a pound!  I am on the right track.  I've been able to wear jeans and capris that are a size down!  I hear my 10s calling my name....I'll be there soon (i'm hoping). 

I think it helps having this Fitness Challenage at work.  Everyone is eating good so it is easy to eat good during lunch.  I try and share my dinner with the baby at home so that helps my portion control there.

My goal:  to hopefully fit in my size 10s again....still double digits...but I would gladly take that one.  I would also like to have a cute swimsuit this year.  I know if I squeezed another hour or two into my day and found time for the treadmill and would really help me get to that goal...but time doesn't allow.

Hope everyone else is doing well on their weight loss goals!

5 Question Friday

It's finally Friday!  It's been a hell of a week but I still have a very busy weekend ahead of me.  After work I need to delivery a Scentsy basket party and then my neighbor is having a "toy" party.  I work tomorrow and then have my aunt's 50th birthday party.  Sunday I think I'm taking photos of my youngest son and my nephew in the bluebonnets and then I have something special going on that afternoon that is a surprises to I can't even tell you!

Oh!  And today....I'm wearing my jeans that are a size smaller!  That's right....I'm on the road of no longer being a fat ass!  Holla!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?

I love love love when the flower start to bloom.  I guess here in Texas the first sign of spring would be the bluebonnets!

2. What was your best birthday ever?

My best birthday every was my 30th!  Some how....I still don't know how they did friends and family did a surprise birthday party at my house.  How did I not figure it out?  I always find out stuff.

3. What is your favorite dessert?

I love cheesecake with cherry pie filling on top.

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?

I don't give excuses.  I've only gotten tickets when I was in an accident and it was so totally my fault I don't think I could "get out of it".  When I get pulled over for speeding I just get warnings.

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?

All of the above.  My 1 year old has more teeth coming in so I wake up at all hours of the night.  I would like to get a good night sleep.  When I'm 50 all the kids will be out of the house (i hope).

Happy Girl!

I know I haven't blogged much lately.  I've been a busy girl.  Some of you might remember that on the 18th of April I joined Scentsy and became an independent consultant so I could make some extra money to pay off my credit cards.  I am having an amazing time with it!  I've set little goals for myself and have reached them every time!  I've spent alot of my free time getting stuff ready for basket parties and my launch party was last weekend (which turned out really well).  

Other than Scentsy, I've been busy with family.  My beautiful cousin, Brit, got married almost 2 weeks ago.  Hopefully I'll put the pics on my computer and blog about that soon.  My oldest, Alexys, has been sick so I've taken her to the doctor.   I've also been very busy at work.

I'm ready for a much needed vacation.....away from it all.  The closest thing to that will be camping Memorial weekend.  I'm thinking my girls and I need to plan a trip to New Orleans soon.....just would be fun!

Enjoy the rest of your week and I hope to blog more.

Go me!  So we started a Fitness Challenge last week at work.  It is points based and we go off of weight lost, body fat % and inches lost.  I was not the biggest loser this week.  I'm totally ok with that.  I still lost 2 pounds and 2 inches!!!!  Holla!  I feel my size 14 slipping away...hopefully the 12s will go away faster.

5 Question Friday

YAY! It's Friday once again! And my big Scentsy Launch party and I can not wait! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend. 1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Honestly, I wish I wasn't so emotional. I cry so easy it is honestly pathetic. 2. Write about a time when you got lost. I know I've been lost before but can't think of a time right now. I try not to be the one driving if I go some where new. 3. Camping or 5 star hotel? This would depend. If it is just my hubby and I, 5 star hotel. But if it is a family thing....camping all the way! We love going camping. 4. Have you donated blood? No! But I really would like to at least once. 5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months? I don't really have a "budget" but I make sure the bills are paid first.

TODAY I LOVE WEIGH IN DAY!!!!! Why you ask? Because I lost 2 friggin pounds in one week that's why!!
We started our Fitness Challenge at work yesterday so we all had to weigh in. I had planned on starting the treadmill yesterday but I'm also trying to get my Scentsy stuff up and running. I had to go deliver a basket party and then cook dinner and then bag up Scentsy orders for all the girls at work to deliver. So....when I was done at around 11, I did not want to start the treadmill. I showered and took my butt to bed.
Hopefully today I will get at LEAST 30 minutes in on the treadmill. I still need to get organized and clean the house for my Scentsy launch party this Saturday.
If I could never sleep it would make my life so much easier.

5 Question Friday

Yippie! It's Friday! All my family is down from different states for my cousin's wedding tomorrow. This will be a crazy and loud weekend! 1. Have you ever had surgery? No, and hopefully will never have to 2. Ever ride in an ambulance? Yes! In 2004 my four wheeler flipped over and the handlebars went through my face. There was a student EMT in there....always my luck. So I let her poke me several times before starting my IV. I'm nice like that I guess. 3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm? Most people who know me would assume I would freak. Surprisingly in the recent years I am very calm. Mostly because my husband freaks, which is totally out of character for him. When my 4 wheeler flipped....he was freaking. So I calmly told him what he needed to do to get me taken care of. When my daughter had to have surgery and get IVs started...she is deathly afraid of needles....I totally calmed her down. When my water broke and my husband was running around the house like a mad man....I was calmly taking a shower to clean up and head to the hospital. 4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies? Since we have been in this house (5 years) I have not had a flower garden....and I miss it. I hope to have one this year. 5. When did you move out of your parents house? Right after high school graduation. It wasn't totally by choice. My mom was going to move out of state so I moved in with my boyfriend at the time and his family....ugh.
