Can't handle my hangover

Friday night I stayed up until 4:00am drinking wine chatting with old friends (after drink beer while playing beer pong) and spent most of the day on Sunday laying on the couch in agony...tired, nauseous, with a migraine, etc.  I don't know why I think I am 21 or better yet 18 and can handle this. Clearly, I cannot.

I did however get myself up, showered and dressed around 5:00pm and headed out for the night to party it up for a girlfriend's bachelorette party. I stayed out until 2:00am on Saturday night but only had 1 drink and about 6 Excedrin Migraine pills.

Why am I in denial about my age and/or drinking abilities?

Fat looks better brown

I came home from work, changed into my work out clothes and headed for the gym. I left my house at 5:30pm and was going to take Group Power at 5:45pm. As I was driving out my me neighborhood I realized I forgot my water bottle. Instead of going back home and getting it or like other gym patrons using the water fountain I decided since I did not have by water bottle I would spray tan instead of working out.


I need motivation to get to the gym...apparently looking at my fat ass in the mirror is not enough...

PS- Thanks to Chris at PBT :)

It's my blog and I can cry if I want to...

I want a baby, it’s not a secret, well maybe it is a secret because I don’t wear a sign or shout it from the
rooftops but nonetheless I want a baby. I don’t want one today or tomorrow or even 3 months from
now but someday I want a baby (or 2 or 3).

It seems like all my female friends within child bearing age are pregnant and I can’t help but feel a little
jealous, like I was invited to the party. I know this is completely irrational because I don’t want me be
invited right now but I am still envious (better word than jealous).

Don’t get me wrong, I am overjoyed for all of my friends who are mothers and expecting mothers and
I am so happy that they share the news with me and tell me about all the funny and gross things that
come along with motherhood.

One day…

The journey begins...

Today Mark and I signed the papers and paid our earnest money to break ground on our new home. It has been less than 2 months since we decided to buy a new home, even less time since we decided a new home was the right way for us and now here we are. I am so excited and a little overwhelmed about the whole thing, but I know its the right thing for us (and our future family). The picture below is of the model in Waxhaw that is the same floor plan we are going to build.

Mark and I celebrated 3 glorious years of marriage yesterday... it's crazy how time flies when you are having fun.

Our wedding day was one of the best days of my life to date and I would do it all over again every year if we could afford it.  This is my favorite picture from our wedding, the "dip" at the end of our first dance.

My GREAT friend Carrie Lou ( gave us dance lessons, as our wedding present, so we did not look like we were at the 7th grade dance....

PS- We rocked our first dance to Love Song by 311, if you couldnt tell by the picture :)

PSS- Here is Carrie whispering something to Mark...another one of my favorite pictures
