OK so I was on the phone with my mom this morning to see how hers and my dad's trip up North was going. When on the phone with her I was telling her how shocked I was cause when I woke up this morning my dishes where put away, my laundry was started ,my bed was made, and Rob cleaned up after himself after breakfast. I WAS SHOCKED!! Don't get me wrong Rob helps out when he can between school and spending time with Robbie and I, But when it comes down to it I would rather have Rob be able to see Robbie and spend time with him rater then helping me do some of the stuff around the house. Well needless to say I was telling my mom about all of this when I was on the phone with her. Yesterday Rob and I had a little bit of a falling out when I left the house to go do some errands. I came back to a house that was tore apart (after spending all morning cleaning) I WAS NOT HAPPY. Needless to say that is why I was shocked and awwwed by the fact that Rob took it to heart when I told this to him yesterday I told him that I didnt like that fact that the house is all tore up after claning it ALL morning long!! So I told my mom all of this on the phone this morning. Well while on the phone my dog started to throw up in the house so I let him out. When all of a sudden I am looking down the road and before this I asked my mom how long till you are where you are going and she told me 10 mins!! I said OH good so you are almost there!! She said YEP!! But I look down the road and I see a van JUST LIKE THEIRS and then I look at the plates and there IL plates!!! MY MOM AND DAD SURPRISED ME!!! THEY DROVE ALL THE WAY TO FL OVER NIGHT FOR ME!!! Well of course Robbie too I M SURE!! But talk about a perfect way to end a week!!! So needless to say I was VERY SHOCKED!! Now I know why the house was cleaned up this morning!! Oh well cant hurt the man for tryin I guess!!!!

Rollin, Rollin, Rollin, Keep those feet a Rollin!!

OK so I am on day 3 of working out and not letting anyone stop me because they don't want or feel like working out!!! I am so excited that I am doing this for myself!! Tonight how ever I did have a work out partner (my friend across the street came over and she was in her PJ'S when I asked her to work out!!! Of course she changed!!!) I am just excited that I have gone 3 nights IN A ROW without not working out and each time I have worked out I have gone 15-20 mins (outside in my garage) and have gone about 1.6 miles!! Before I would just tell myself that it is getting to late and I need to get to bed:P But now I notice that when I wake up in the morning I feel better about myself and I have a whole new sense of pride in myself the next day!!! Thank you everyone in IL who is giving me encouragement!!! It is very much needed!!!

I just want to put out there that I am VERY Happy!! Today is Kasen's 4th Birthday!!! So here's to you bugger butt HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love you and Miss you VERY much.

Stickin To IT!!!!

OK so for the last two weeks now I have been getting REALLY down because I am REALLLLLY wanting to start losing my weight. There are a number of reasons why I want it off and I want it off now. One of the biggest reasons is Rob and I are REALLY wanting to have another baby but I don't want to be at the weight I am at right now and be preg. at the same time. I have a few friends down here who are kinda in the same boat with wanting to work out but every time I ask them to come over and work out with me they always come up with SOME reason why they can not come over and work out. I am the type of person who LOVES to have other people to work out with because it makes it seem more enjoyable for me!! That is why I LOVED working out with everyone back home. So with that being said I have now made myself a written out promise to myself. That seems to be the only way (so far) that I have stuck to working out with or with out anyone. I just REALLY wish I was back home to work out with everyone up there.

Question of the day??

Have you ever just hit spots in your life when you feel like it is the SAME thing day in and day out. You wake up SAME time everyday you let the dog out, you feed the kid(s), you clean up and then you start the clean up for the day of the house (vacum, dust, wash floors, laundry, ect....) I feel like I am just stuck in a rut and I CAN NOT get out of it (Kinda like Ground Hog Day haha). I don't know what to do and what is even harder is that usually when I feel like this I go and take Robbie out to do something (which involves spending money) but Rob and I sat down this past Sunday and made a goal for ourselves with our bill's so now I am trying my hardest to REALLY stick with that because in the long run it is only going to help out our family!!! It is also something else that we as a couple are trying to atchive together!! So what it boils down to is what the heck is a girl to do when she is stuck in this kind of rut???

More enjoyment!!!

Here are a few more photo's from Robbie's Birthday Party!!!

Weekend Done!!

Well after a nice long weekend of celebrating Robbie's Birthday on Friday and on Saturday, Sunday made for a nice day of CLEANING!!! All in all the party went off without a hitch!!! The only thing that I would have done different is not have bought so much food!!! We wound up giving about $40 worth of food to our neighbor!! Which is fine cause they have 3 kids to feed and will be able to use it more then Rob and I will!!! We had fun making pic frames of Lighting McQueen and swimming in the pool and to top it all of I had a pinata with about 5LBS of candy kickin inside of it (which I found 4 of the bags of candy laying around my house while cleaning it today I wonder if the parents where trying to tell me something or if they REALLY did forget to take it home with them!! haha). Robbie put one of the bags of candy in his dresser drawer and I did not know about it until he kept coming up to me asking me to open candy for him and finally after about the 3rd or 4th piece of candy I asked him where he was getting this from cause your bag is put up, So he takes my hand and leads me to his room and points to his dresser and says "there" I open his shorts drawer and low and behold what do I find...... a bag of candy!!! The little bugger hid a bag of candy on me so he could eat it!!! So other then that, that was pretty much my party hard weekend!!!!
