My Bestest

After a rough couple of days, I am longing to be with my girls and on one of our fabulous getaways. We have so much fun together and they truly understand everything that I am going through and give 100% support.

Its time to start planning our next adventure...where should we go this time??

This is from our fabulous trip to the Nation's Capital over 4th of July!
Buddy couldn't go on that trip and I have to include we are!

Can I just say how much I miss working at Kate Spade and my superb discount. Did I also mention that we received a shoe allowance!!?? Yes thats right every season we got two pairs of shoes for FREE! Working at Kate Spade and living in Atlanta was one minor blurb in my journey. It was only a few months and rather interesting. Lets just say we learn from our mistakes...

However, I do covet these super fabulous pumps!

The "F" Word

In our household the "F" word is different than what you think it might be. Unfortunately it doesn't mean "oh fudge." The "F"=FAT. Its a word that I am not supposed to use or even have in my why is it my biggest fear?
Its really odd about all of the definitions that Webster gives for the word fat that no one even thinks about associating the word with. For example:
  • full in tone and quality
  • richly rewarding and profitable
I am feeling blue tonight because this one word or phobia has created such havoc in my life and family. It has caused heartache and hurt many feelings. Hopefully with each day this phobia will dissipate...

As for now I am just going to tell Ed to go "fudge" himself!

New Read

Oh how excited I am to receive a new book today to add to my summer reading! The author of In her Shoes and Certain Girls has come out with a new one. Considering I have lots of time on my hands at the moment (errrrrrr), I am ready to jump into this read!
Not only is the cover so enticing, but also the title. I can't wait for you to get to know my bestest and all of the fun we have together. Fun picks of my girlies to come!

A new day= new goals

After a rough couple of days...its a new day and every moment has the possibility of being a fresh start. No use in dwelling on our mistakes and past, but look to the future for hope and encouragement.
Just a few goals on my agenda to incorparate into my daily routine:
  • Focus on the positives less on the negatives
  • Get pumped about graduate school starting next week...did I mention that I am getting my Masters in Teaching elementary education. No worries friends...only Lilly jumpers are acceptable.
  • Plan menu and actually write in food journal (its a really cute planner!)
  • Reach out and scream when bad urges arise!!!!!

Thats about all for now...

Until later....

First Timer

With all of lifes' ups and downs...why not add a little humor and fun to all those struggles that we face each day. We all have moments where we feel that things could not get worse, and then they do. Even through all the trial and errors, I still manage to keep on trucking and try to live in the moment and take each day at a time. Welcome to my blog where I will share my mishaps, obessions, struggles, and best of all my many blessings. ENJOY!
