Still Alive

Okay, I know, I know.... 3 months since my last post... (Not that I wrote that often anyways).

Brief summary of the last 90 days....

Thanksgiving - ate way too much
Christmas - snowed WAY too much... got stuck in someone's yard Christmas day, had to have my dad pick us up for the family get together.
New Years Eve - Made resolution to lose weight starting with January 1st, 2010.
New Years Day - Gave up resolution when tempted with chocolate (te he he)

Tim and I decided to start trying to have a baby in November... but once January rolled around, I had a deep personal revelation: I'm not physically ready for that!

So we decided to hold off on trying to conceive and instead, decided to focus on losing the weight we so desperately need to lose.

We started counting calories on January 18th and as of Monday (Feb. 1st) I have lost 11.4 pounds and Tim has lost 6.8 pounds!!!!!!!

In between all of that, school has started back up, and I'm enjoying my classes.... For those of you (like me) that DON'T believe in coincidence, I realized that I signed up for 3 different Health/Nutrition classes. Funny, yes?

Other than that, I'm trying to make more minis and trying not to be EXTREMELY jealous at all of you that are more talented than me at the mini-making. (Also trying not to drool, LOL)

Anyways, just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm still alive, and I still read all of your blogs, almost daily.

Pictures of the new minis coming soon!


  1. Hi! Thank you for following my blog and I'm now following your's and have added your blog to my list. I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes off blogging for periods of time and drops off the radar! I'm trying to be more consistent at it. If you don't mind adding my blog to your list, Peach Blossom Hill as i've just changed the name from Mini Leaps and Bounds and I will enjoy following your progress. My chidren are now 19, 17 and 10 so I can hardly remember those days before children! Good luck with that--they are quite a blessing and sometimes a source of heartbreak and sress as well but so worth it!


  2. Glad you're back! GREAT job on losing weight to both of you and Tim. Keep it up! Resolutions are SO hard to keep.

  3. wow- good for you on the weight loss!!! hoooray!!! I wish you good luck in school and when you decide to try for a baby :)

  4. Our Thanksgivings and New Years were much the same :) Chocolate is evil and must be consumed to rid the world of its influence.
