So Sad

Well today was the day.... the day I have been absolutely DREADING! Today I said "goodbye" or "see ya later" to one of my very best friends and her family. We hung out for a bit after I got off work then I knew it was time to come home. Needed to get laundry done for my trip....I was playing with Josh running around and Angel started crying.... she knows how much I love Joshiepoo and he loves me... she hates that we won't get to see eachother for a couple of months. But we had to say goodbye... Josh gave me the sweetest hug and a kiss on the lips. haha that was SO cute he threw his hands up in the air afterwards and turned bright red. SO freaking cute love that little guy! Then Angel and I hugged and it was ALL OVER.... we both started bawling.... I said ok I have to go... and walked out... I couldn't even look at her face before I walked out... it sucked! I love them all SO freaking much but I know its not forever... I will visit them in STL as soon as I can... I guess this is just part of life... but true friends will be there no matter what... even if they are miles apart... Love you guys and will miss you TONS!!!

*this isn't the GREATEST pic BUT it was the only one with ALL of us in it lol*

Yup... it's true

There's nothing wrong with it either! :) someone's got to! haha I was feeling really down earlier thanks to a certain someone that's been kinda in my life lately. But after my 2 hour workout I feel SO much better. Working out has become something insanely positive in my life. Not only am I losing weight, getting healthier, and building muscle I am begining to really love me! It's nice! :) I bet everyone in my life is getting sick of hearing about my workouts but it's a really big part of my life right now. It's not like I have a boyfriend to talk about or anything else major like they do!

I think I posted yesterday about the Relay For Life I was doing last night. I must say that really is a positive experience. I only walked 2 miles which isn't a lot but I also didn't stay THAT long once they started walking. I think I was there like 3 hours but walked for an hour or so. I think next year I want to do it and be more in it. Raise money and everything.... It is such a positive thing to be involved in. I wish I had been more involved this year but sometimes you have to experience something to feel it really IS important. NOt that I didn't think it was important before but it just felt more real and important last night. So hopefully next year I can make it happen :) THEN we can raise even more money for TEAM POPPA! :)

Time to shower and wait on my laundry!! Hopefully going out tonight with Kelly and her cousins or at least just Kelly! :)

Happy Saturday everyone!

Love ya,

1. Do you and your spouse go to bed at the same time?

Not married! But I would guess if I had one that the answer would be no..

2. A question for the ladies...What kind of facial hair do you like on your man?

3. What's the worst vacation you've ever taken?

Um I don't think I have ever had a BAD vacation. I have had some bad points in vacations but not bad enough to call the entire vaca bad.
4. What's the first-ever blog you followed?

Hmmm thats a tough question. I am thinking KellysKorner or even my sisters... or Kayce's haha ok obviously I do not know the answer to this question.
5. Do you enjoy amusement parks?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE amusement parks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I love a good rollercoaster!

Can I just say I am SO happy its Friday!!! This has been a LONG LONG week for me. Probably because I am going on Vacation next week! Today after work I am hitting the gym which is STILL going great. I am 1.1 lb away from my next goal. I am thinking by Sunday I will have hit the goal! :) Then after the gym I am going to walk for the Relay For Life. I am walking for my Bro-in laws dad who has cancer... Hopefully it will be a good experience since I have never done it! Hopefully I can take some good pictures! We are all supposed to wear Alabama Colors. I have ONE Alabama shirt and its big... maybe I can shrink it before I leave the house :)

Ok well back to work!!

So where would you like to be?

Gym update

So I posted sometime last week that I joined Golds Gym. This has been the best thing for my weight loss EVER. I think it was just the change I needed. So far I have lost 2lbs which no isn't a LOT but for me it is great. Its hard for me to lose even 1lb. Probably because I still want to eat french fries. haha oh well I will continue to eat what I want and just kick my own butt at the gym to make up for it.

Seriously though I have kicked up my workouts... I used to do like 30mins of cardio then a couple of machines and was probably done after 45 mins. Now I am staying a minimum of an hour. Trying to do more cardio which their movie room definitely helps with and I am trying new machines.

Yesterday I worked out for 2 1/2 hours... yes that is not an error!!! I did 1 1/2 hours in a yoga class which honestly was quite hard and they actually called it GENTLE yoga. Lord help me if I ever did NONgentle yoga! They would probably have to call 911.

After Yoga I did 30 mins of cardio, after that I went to "explore" the gym with Amanda who I am trying to motivate to workout harder since she's trying to look good for her wedding.
anyway I found a few machines that I really liked. As well as some different ways to do my abs without hurting my back. Thats a miracle in itself. So let's hope I can just keep kicking my own butt and get below 150.. thats my goal for the month. If I can see 149 on the scales I will probably cry with happiness lol no not literally but I will be super happy.

Heres to more weight loss :D



How cute are these google images today??

Google is celebrating what would have been the 76th birthday of children's author Roger Hargreaves with a series of homepage doodles depicting characters from his popular Mr. Men and Little Miss books.
Google doodlers have crafted more than a dozen versions of the company's logo featuring the cartoon characters from Hargreaves' books, from Little Miss and Mr. Tickle to Mr. Happy and Mr. Messy.


Going Away Party

Last weekend I went to my friend Angels going away party/cook-out. She finally posted some pictures on FB so I wanted to post them here. These are just a few of my favorite ones. The one picture of Kelly, Angel and Myself is my favorite!! I love this picture and I love those 2 chicks with all my heart so that helps too! :)

ok the thing on my head is a cover for food. Don't ask, No I was not drunk in this picture. My face is red because it was hot outside lol

This is why we are best friends. I love this picture!

This is a random picture I took of myself before our last girls night out. I thought I looked cute. haha it was on Wednesday and we went to Al Di La which I have talked about before. It was SO good. Angel and I split a dinner since I wasn't all that hungry. But we had grilled porkloin I think and mashed taters and some veggies. It was DELISH! So glad I split it mainly for the price though. That place is a bit pricey. We had a lot of fun that night though!

This past Saturday night Angel and I decided to have one last girls night just her and I. I went to her house and we headed to Moes and Kohls with J. After that we went back to her house got in our pjs, put J to bed, got a woodchuck and watched a movie. We watched a movie called The Women it was um interesting. We both enjoyed the movie but pretty much agreed that we would never watch it again. It was just a one time deal! I left her house at like midnight I believe so I was tired. The thing that REALLY sucked is she started to cry when I left.... I held it together for her I knew if I cried it would all be over lol BUT don't think I am heartless I sobbed for a good 10 mins while I was driving home. But the tears made driving hard so I had to stop. We officially say "See you later" on Wednesday and I am DREADING it. :( But I wish them well on their next journey to STL.

On a bit of a happier note my great friend Julie had her baby on Saturday evening. Baby Marlow showed up about 6pm and she is PRECIOUS!! Absolutely can't wait to meet her. Julie is already calling me Auntie Sara which I am fine with.

Well back to work.... Have a Happy Monday... ok TRY to! :)

Friday, May 6, 2011


I know Friday is almost over and all but I figured I would do a small post. Mainly because I am bored hoping the computer will make me sleepy... it's not working yet for the record.

So the last couple of days have been rather hard. I am thinking it is due to the prayer challenege I previously posted about. I know when you get closer to God the Devil works harder on you. He will not win. I have just felt very convicted and know almost sad. But I know what the reasons are and I will not let him win. This morning I was feeling quite down until I talked to a really awesome person and my day just went up from there.

After work I went to see Ashley and Jesse. Her sister was there too, she's pregnant with baby B and I am so excited for her to have him. I love babies which I find funny since I am not really sure I even want them. Angel says I will change my mind just like she did. We shall see... I make no promises. lol I will probably end up with like 20 kids like that Michelle Dugar lady.. haha I will not curse myself with that. *knock on wood*

Anywho, I hung out with them for a bit then Ashley and I went to Norrissia's house for ANOTHER jewelry party. haha I feel like I go to one monthly. But we had a great time. Norrissia and her friends were hilarious I was seriously laughing a lot. I think Ashley had a good time too. Most of the ladies live in her neighborhood so maybe she will have some potential new friends too. They are all nice and friendly but I only know them surface level besides Nor. Oh and can I just say she looks FABULOUS for having a baby 2 months ago. She's tinier now than before she got preggo. After the party Ashley and I hung out for a bit just talking about life. You know nothing major haha

It was a great night. And I am so blessed to have such great friends in my life. I couldn't imagine life without my girls!

My computer is telling me it's dying....

Have a great weekend!

Wish I was here Wednesday

So I found another fun blog to link up with. You all know how I love to do that. The Question:

where do you wish you were today???

First of all Australia is my DREAM VACATION. If I could choose anywhere in the world to go this would be it. My Aunt Theresa and I priced it a couple of years ago and it was crazy expensive. I am thinking now that her and I should price it again and start saving even if we can't go until next year. I would be OK with that. Just to know that sometime in the near future we could go that would be awesome. Or I could find me a rich man and marry him and he can take me! HAHAHAHAHAHA yeah I laughed hysterically on that one too. It was definitely a joke... money isn't that way to my heart.

So, Where would you like to be today?

Psalm 139: 23-24

23 Search me, O'God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

This is the prayer Pastor Perry Noble at has challenged us to pray this week. After his darkness to light sermon on Sunday it has been making me feel convicted... Kelly says this is a good thing lol I guess it means I am more likely to change whatever it is I feel convicted about.

And let me just say I am not perfect nor have I ever claimed to be I have my flaws just like everyone else. Pretty sure they have showed up on my blog from time to time. But I want to be the best me I can possibly be. Spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally.

I am working on me... so far the physically part is coming along nicely. I am down 20lbs and have felt so much better lately. My back is hurting less and I feel better, more confident about myself. now to work on the rest

I have A LOT going through my mind right now and I just need to sort it out.

So I challenege you to pray this prayer and see what it can do for you.

Love you all.

GTKY Sunday

So I decided to do my first Get to Know you Sunday featured over at This one is apparently Royal Wedding Addition which I am completely ok with haha

1. did you watch the royal wedding?
I watched about 30 mins of it while getting ready for work.

2. tea and crumpets or coffee and a scone?
If I had to chose probably Coffee and a scone. Although I have never in my life had a scone. haha

3 who's cuter..prince william or prince harry?
Prince William most definitely. Even with his balding head!

4. can you speak in a english accent?
Haha I like to think I can but I guess someone else would have to judge that one for me.

5. do you own a fancy hat?
Definitely not... I have never had a reason to have a fancy hat.

6. would you rather live in a castle or an english cottage?
An english cottage for sure. A castle would be WAY too big. I would probably get lost.

7. how old were you when prince charles and princess diana got married? were you even born?
I have no freaking clue when they got married but I am quite sure I probably wasn't born yet.

8. have you found your prince?
Nope... still single. I guess there's a potential prince but we shall see one day!
