This is just an outlet for me, to be able to get my thoughts out! I am a Woman, Wife and Mommy that also works outside the home! Just me trying to make it all work for the best for my family and myself! Just my journey!

So many things to catch up on that I think I am going to "Power Blog"
Here it goes:
Jen at More than a Single Mom has awarded me with this:
And let me just say how honored I am. Like everyone else, I do enjoy winning stuff. To honor the blogging award given to me by More than a Single Mom (I think you should go check her out) I will pass it on to:
M*O*M (Mom on a Mission) she'll make you think, make you laugh, make you cry!!
Milk & Honey (she is the HONEY) Sweet, kind and making you think add a little funny and a ton of Sassy and you have Milk & Honey!!

GOAL!! Well partially, but so taking it as a victory. Broke 180, not by much but down to 179. Didn't make it to the gym at all, so not like me! This crazy shift, is what I am blaming that on! Goal for next week: Going out on a limb: 4lbs. (that will be 175lbs) workout 3 times, 2 times will be an extra good workout! I have not been totally strict and I think I will try it this week, just a little!
Next on the agenda:
Pumpkin contest: Windy and Mitchell both received their awards of 3rd place. Although, I wish I could have gone to the judges and said: My kids thought of this all by themselves and the only way I or anyone could help them was to pour paint! But you can't share that information with the judges! You would think they could tell who created all by themselves and who had help (there is a family category)!
On to Halloween!
Just to get out the pictures. I will post more on this very soon! As you can imagine I have an opinion, a strong opinion and I want to share! It was a good Halloween and who would have ever thought that the Harley Coat I have held on to all these years (1987) would have come in handy!! Still a reason to hold on to it!!
A great Halloween lots of fun, lots of family and a true feeling of community all in one night. One question.... Why doesn't anyone just hand out one piece of candy anymore? It is always a handful!! I am also guilty of this, but when and why did that change? The loot bags were too full, I'll be sharing at work!!
WHEW!!! Now consider that a power blog!! I think I am caught up!


  1. Congratulations on your new weight success. You're inspiring me to get serious again. Thanks for the "push."

  2. Good job on your weight. The slower it comes off the better chance you have of keeping it off. So don't get down just keep working at it. You can do it, you are doing it. =)

  3. I'm impressed with your diligence. Me, I'm back to walking once a week, and all those caramels from last week!
    Congrats on your bloggy award!

  4. I'm so proud of you for your loss! Way to go!!!!

  5. Thanks for the award, Chrissy! That was so nice! Hope to see you at the next meet this month!

    Hey, what gym do you work out at?

  6. Well, how ironic, Chrissy! I've been kind of down because I've been out of my regular blogging routine. Sometimes I get discouraged because I'm not as consistent as others. Then, I visit your blog and find this. How sweet are you?!?!? You made my night. Thanks a bunch :-))
