Great Birthday

I had the greatest birthday ever. The kids all had a suprise for me.  Triston and Rheagen bought me the CUTEST bear with their own money!  I guess they had a hard time choosing what to get me. But what they got me was the best look how cute!

The was just the beginning.  Padin and Rheagen made me the cutest pictures and sang me a special song that they made up just for me.  How sweet is that?!?!? 

By noon we finally made it to the pool.  Hayley my sweet sister-in-law brought the girls over to go swimming with us.  IT WAS A BLAST!!  Even though I am in so much pain today.  I went up and down the slide proabably 50 times. (okay maybe not much but it felt like it).  The kids love going down the big slide. 

Sienna would crack me up and scream all the way down.  She wasn't scared she was just having fun.  Adyson kept saying we need to go supper dupper fast!!  Found out if i took of my shorts before we went down the slide it would make us go so much faster.  Rheagen almost got the courage to go down the slide herself but got scared at the end.  Hopefully, next time she can do it.  I can't lift her much longer.
Padin just did his own thing most of the day until he could get his turn to go down the slide.  You know girls are pretty boring!  He did find someone he went to school with thank goodness!

I have to show you what Hayley and the girls got me!  LOVE IT!!!

The day is not over yet!  Triston, Rheagen, and Padin spent the night.  Wii rime baby!  I finally bought a second controller.  Not sure if that was a good idea.  We are all way too competitive.  My favorite part was watching Triston try to help Padin, PRICELESS!!!!

Update . . .

I know I haven't wrote in here for awhile so here is a little update of what I have been doing.

I am still doing BOOT CAMP and loving it! I have dropped a total of 15 inches so far. I sure hope one day I can find a nice set of abs!!! I will work on it until I do. Ha ha I have found that taking my vitamins and taking supplement shakes do wonders! I have heard how wonderful Shakeology is so I am going to be getting some Wednesday so EXCITED! Wondering what this stuff is go to and the items are in shop for products.

Last weekend I got invited to go with the Fawson's to Bear Lake it was a blast, even though it rained off and on. They are probably the funniest family ever. I don't think I have ever laughed so much in my life. Thanks guys for letting me come with you! We will have to do it again when the weather gets better. Hopefully during the summer I can bring up the waverunner and we can play on that.

Brings me to my next concern . . . well I think I want to get me a SUV. Pontiac is done and I don't think it would be a good idea to keep the car. Even though I love it and wasn't planning on getting me a new vehicle for awhile. But with this said anyone have an SUV or know of an SUV that you think is really good? I am thinking about getting it so I can take the waverunner out this summer. Any help would be deeply appreciated. THANKS!!!

The worst day ever . . .

I hated today with a passion and I never want to go through this again. We had a layoff today with approximately 300 people. The more I think about it the more depressed I get. I feel so lucky to still have my job. However, there were many people that were not so lucky. I wish there was a way that I could say goodbye to some of the people I used to work with. I know it stunned most of them and I wish they could come back. Work will not be the same. L All I can say is I wish you the best of luck and I hope you find a job soon!! And thanks for being such great friends!!!

Boot camp may sound horrible. Well it can be it seriously kicks my butt every night. I want to thank my mom for getting us signed up to do this. I might get discouraged and I don't think i can do one more rep. Then I look to my side and what do I see my MOM still going STRONG! What the heck she is still going okay I have to keep going!! My mom rocks at this! We have to jump A LOT well she does it. I look around the room and most women don't. I look up to my mother. I hope one day I can be as strong as her. Mom I love you!! Thanks for doing this with me.
One other thing I talked to Michelle Olsen and she thought I could be a coach. I work with one man that ways 350 pounds. He is the nicest guy in the whole world!!! However, I care about him so much that I stress about him. I am so worried one day with his weight he will have a heart attack at work and they will not be able to get him out of the building.
I told him I worry about him all the time. So one day I just asked if I could help coach him to lose weight. I told him there was also an incentive to drop the pounds. If you go on my website and sign up. You can be put in to win money. I know it sounds like a scam but it isn't. So if any of you would like me to help you. While I am helping myself please. Email, text, or call. I will help! I want to help! By the way we are doing the ChaLEAN Extreme at boot camp and IT IS AWESOME!! Soon I will have the DVD's. So if any of you would like to borrow anything. Let me know!!
Yes I don't have much on my website right now but it will be up to date this weekend.

5 addictions

Not really sure what to put on this . . .

1. First of all I think I am addicted to hanging out with Trisha and her kids! They sure can put a smile on my face all the time. Especially LOU LOU!!! (by the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY!!!)

2. Boot camp with Michelle Olsen!!! She is the coolest coach EVER!

3. My one hundred calorie packs. Yes, I only eat one a day. :)

4. Spending money! This has to stop FAST. I need to save again. If I ever want to buy me a house.

5. Writing down my feelings. I was told the other day that I don't know myself. The sad thing this is sooo true!!! So this friend of mine said, "I need to figure out who I am before I can really be happy." So this is one thing I am trying to do. Not working out to well.

I tag Trisha, Jaime, Tawna, and Mandi

Fun night

First off I got a phone call at 9:30 Saturday night saying get your but to the house. Let's play the wii. I tried my hardest not to play this thing because I know me I will get addicted real fast. However, the greatest people in the world got me to play. I had so much fun. Especially playing Mario kart! I am a dork I know but I am so competitive that I was trying my hardest to win. The thing is I was not very good . . . well I stink at it. I was glad when I didn't take 12th place. Ha ha ! At least I couldn't do any worse! A couple of us were talking we should make this an all nighter. So guess what . . . yes we did. I didn't make it home until about eleven the next day. I just have to thank my friends for being so nice and getting me out of the house. Even though I was missing one of my favorite shows "John and Kate plus 8". Well I ended up not missing it. I was glad I did miss it because there was one benefit of the night. I made a really good friend.

Thanks again everyone! I hope we can do this again soon. The food can be on me this time.

How I did it . . .

Well before I started painting the table I had to read instructions on the internet on how to do it.  The top of this table is laminate so I didn't know for sure what would stick to it or if I could paint it.  Well they have this cool stuff call Bullseye 1-2-3.  This will let paint stick to just about anything from tile, laminate, or anything slick. 


So first I decided to sand down some of the spots that needed some fixing.  Then I painted a thin layer of bullseye 1-2-3.  This is just like a primer.  Once this was dry, I used gloss oil enamel paint.  Trust me I didn't like it at first because it was too shinny.  However, after a couple of days it grew on me.  After everything is painted, they say to use two coats of polyurethane on any item you paint.  This is for cleaning purposes.  I am not going to do this until summer.  I am afraid the fumes will be too much for me to handle without having doors and windows open.
