Blast from the past!

We have been scanning/uploading alot of old pictures of our high school has been a crazy couple of nights! Brings back a ton of memories..some good~some bad!! High school was so weird for me- lots of drama but it is where I met my sweetheart :)
I had to post these prom pictures. I wish I could say I had some weird, crazy mullet hair, metallic dress issues but I don't! Glad I grew up when I did :)

Junior Prom (2000)

This was me on any given night..

Me & my bestie~ Camms

Both had some fake smiles goin on..I think we were mumbling under our breath "TAKE THE PICTURE!!"

My long time friend Ande..

Senior Prom (2001)
I had to take my shoes off for the picture..someone is super tall w/ heels on. Or someone is just really short..either way you want to look at it :)

Anyone else have any 'throwback' pictures they would like to share with the world?
I'm SURE there will be many more of these to come..even older ones!

Superbowl Bound!

That's right folks, the Colts are 2009 AFC Champs & Super Bowl bound! We couldn't be more excited!
The Jets brought their A game in the first half of the playoff game but we got their number & outplayed them in the 2nd half as usual!
I WISH we could be at the game but we'll be cheering our boys on from home in our front row seats! Should be a great game!

Nana's Birthday

Yesterday was my mom's birthday & I was off work for the holiday so we had a fun day together!
I took her to lunch at Olive Garden & then we went shopping afterwards (our favorite thing to do of course)!
Later that evening we all went to their house for pizza!

Mom~ THANK YOU for always being there for us & for being a perfect Nana to Kinley.
We all love you & hope you have MANY more birthdays to come!

As Kinley would say "Happy Birthday for Nana...Happy Birthday for Nana..Happy Birthday for Nana..Happy Birthday for Nana!"

Skate Party

My niece & nephew's birthday's are really close together (Dec 21 & Jan 6) so this year they had a joint party. It was yesterday at Skate World. Yes, the same skate world we all used to have our parties at when we were their age! They recently remodeled it so it has a bit of a face lift! There is even laser tag in the back now (that we didn't play)! Fancy!
Dylan turned 8 & Emily turned 4! I can't believe how old they are getting- I still remember the day Dylan was born & it sure doesn't seem like 8 years ago! He is our sweet, fun-loving & BY THE BOOK boy! This kid has never gotten into trouble..I can only PRAY that Kinley turns out to be just like her cousin Dylan!
Emi on the other hand (haha) is the trouble maker of the 2! She is her mommy made over but we still adore her ;) She is the sneaky one but will always have you laughing at something she says or does!
Kinley loves her Dylan & Emily very much. I don't think she would know what to do w/o them!

Their TEXAS cake.. too bad they lost!

Kinley w/ her new skates on! First time to ever skate & she was amazing at it!

Like father like daughter :)

Ready to tear into some cake!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dylan & Emily! We love you!

Two pull-ups on
What? I didn't do it..

Gotta love her!

New Years Resolution

I was reading on Kelly's Korner blog today & although I usually don't add to the "show us your life" portion of her blog.. I do read through some of the ones that do. I just happened to click one & it really hit home for me! This week's "show us your life" is about New Years Resolutions/Goals. And besides the weight loss goal for me (AGAIN) I think this would be something to add to my list.. This is a quote from Jillian Michaels (trainer from Biggest Loser) that another girl posted on her blog :

"We, as women, put ourselves down and judge each other. It's like, 'My ass is fatter!' 'Oh, no, you should see my muffin top!' That's all bull. It's OK to put yourself first. Selfish isn't a dirty word. If we were all selfish, it would mean we would take care of ourselves and be able to give back to our loved ones. Being selfless is not a good example to set for your kids. Would you treat your kids the way you treat yourself? Would you deprive them of playtime and adequate sleep? Would you not make their doctor's appointments? Would you pick them apart and tell them they're ugly? No! I give people permission to go be awesome. That's it. When my contestants do it for themselves, that's a change that will last a lifetime."

All my friends know that is me 100%, there isn't too much I enjoy about myself when I look in the mirror! And I obviously let everyone know that, especially my hubs.
So this year I'm going to stop being so selfless..I need to drop the pounds I want to drop so I can feel better about myself & start having some self confidence. I'm a huge complainer but haven't exactly been doing anything about it.
I started the Active Personal Trainer last night & it has a 30 day challenge that you can do. So, I am going to see just how much I can achieve in 30 days. And even if I only lose 1 or 2 lbs. during that time, I'm not going to give up like I always do.
Sure, I might have my days where I eat a bad meal or don't work out.. but it doesn't mean that I'm quitting- I want to feel better about myself & this time I don't want to stop until I'm there.

This would be one toy I would NEVER play with!
Why anyone would ever spend money on this is beyond me..
but my Aunt & Uncle came to town over New Years & brought this with them.

That's not exactly a smile...

What's that Greg, something is SHOCKING the crap out of you??

PaPa wanted to get in on the action too...
What's causing all this shocking fun time?
This...a SHOCK TANK. When the 2 tanks line up - whoever gets shot first gets a shock to their hands.

I just don't get it!
