yeah for me! yeah for me!! yeah for me!!!
Don't unplug your ears from my squealing just yet!! I am really hoping to loose 4 by this friday, if not the next. This will bring me to a very important part of my journey. If I loose anything over 4 lbs. by Friday, I will be under 200!!!! This is a really huge deal for me. I wasn't going to share my "personal" information, but after watching Biggest Loser last night, it hit me. If someone, just one person gets inspired by my weight loss then this is worth it.
I know a lot of moms can relate to me out there. I was sooo hot in High School (full of myself huh?) Somewhere you loose yourself and get lost inside a shell that really doesn't belong to you anymore. I miss me.
I think it really hit me when my twin sister told me about running into some longtime friends. I don't think she realized it at the time, but what she said really got to me. She told them "She has moved to Texas and is a completly different person". Yes, I did settledown. I lost my blonde hair, and it is shorter ("Soccer mom do"- is what she called it). But I have also gained 100 lbs in 3 years.
Well, with each class that I finish I know I am getting closer and going to have to spend a summer in Cali and see all of my friends and family. The last time I saw my friends, I was still hot---ish. And the fact that my boys started a game of running into my butt and bouncing off of it for fun. Annnnnd singing "Momma got a big 'ol butt". I know it is all in fun but now I am so happy for my sister saying that, and to the boys for bringing my butt to my own attention....although....I couldn't miss it even if I wanted to.
I am now lifting my bottle of water to me and everyone out there that got hit in the butt (hahah..lol!) and woke up and smelled the scale. Here is to all of us working hard, falling down, and getting right back up there. Here is to us women who struggle with food, diet and excercise but still manage to do it when all there is for dinner is chicken nuggets and mac & cheese.
Most of all here is to my wonderful husband who pays my gym bill, paid for MY Melissa (Personal Trainer), goes grocery shopping and gets me my skinny cow ice cream, who makes chicken nuggets and mac & cheese for the boys...but also makes me a salad and my own dinner. Here is to the same man that acts soooo surprised when I told him what I weigh and said "NO Way you weigh that much" , but meant well Snort!! And here is to MY man who hugged me and said he would love me no matter how much I weigh and that butts are IN!!!!!
YIPPPEEE!! to Mr. David Hajnal and the other two Hajnal's that love Big Butts!!!!!
I know this is a long post, I just had to share my excitement. I just had to give a "shout out" to my wonderful hubby and spread some excitement and encouragement to my friends, sistahs, and anyone else out there who might be listening.

I used SU! cardstock (Huge Sale coming up on paper!!), Textured Impressions Manhattan Flower and some simple stamps on both cards
Paper: Basic Grey SU! and Vellum.
Stamp: "Cherish" from Baroque Motifs, this is a very versitile set for so many occasions.
Ink: Tuxedo Black Momento Ink
Paper: SU! Pink Pirouette
Stamp: VerveInk: Regal Rose
After just trimming a small portion from the vellum, add a couple of small zot dots in the corners and a couple of random places and VOILA! These can made so fast, in any color and in large quantities. Just change the sentiment to match the occasion. I have had this embossing folder for at least a month......what a waste of time. I could have solved a lot of problems a whole lot sooner.
I am in the final week of my English Lit. class this week. Get ready for MAY!!!! I have a ton of stuff planned. Start saving your pennies and making a wish list.

I used the Rockabilly designer paper along with the Something Special stamp set that is available as a Level 2 Hostess gift. I also used the Large Star Punch. Just a reminder that when ordering online through my website your total purchase could qualify you in one of the Hostess Levels and allow you to get free stuff. Don't stress over it, the online ordering system will keep track of everything you qualify for and let you choose and the end of your order. I easily whipped out 2 of these cards with in about 15 minutes. SO STINKIN' EASY!!
I am very excited with this card, it is so bright and cheery. I am now IN LOVE with Digistamps.
Hugs for now,

I also just have to share a pic of my most handsome big guy. Doesn't he look so spif-i-licious and yummy?!!! Even though it's not a pic of his face.
All of the boys played sooo good out there today and ended up winning the first game of the season. My throat hurts from screaming so loud. I am one of those parents. I cheer for everyone. I just can't understand parents who don't even yell and cheer for their own kids. I am sitting right next to them and if I can't hear them, the boys for sure can't! It gets me soooo HOT!!! I just want to get in their face and scream at them. Whew! I feel better. The boys are playing outside, it is so beautiful. I think I will scrap and watch them play.
