MHR...and it's even on Friday!

The reason my husband rocks this week is simple. The conversation went something like this:

Aiden: Who is that? I'm in the other room feeding Ian so I don't know what he's looking at
Jared: I'm not sure
Aiden: Huh, is that mommy?
Jared: No
Aiden: Is she better then mommy?
Jared: Of course not, your mommy is the greatest woman in the world.
Aiden: Yea, I thought so.

He rocks.

I've been tagged!

Jill over at Maybe It's Just Me tagged me and I figured I'd better do it now...otherwise I'll forget. Speaking of, I think Karol gave me an award awhile back that I never blogged about. hmm...I'll get to it, I swear :) goes, all about my friends!

1.Do you have the same friends since childhood?Yep, I've known all my girls since middle school...some longer. I am extremely lucky to have such an amazing group of friends.

2. What do you value most about your friends? The fact that they love me no matter what...and we've all been through so much and changed in so many ways but we can still call each other to cry or laugh or just vent.

3. Are your friends sounding boards? Definitely

4. What is your favorite activity to share with friends? Just getting to see each other. We're all so busy...that even meeting up for dinner or a drink is an accomplishment!

And now... I think I'm gonna tag..........

Karol, Natalie, Anne, and Kirstie

Size 12 is not fat!

When I was 17/18 and wearing a size 4 without batting an eye, it never occurred to me that some day I might be anything over a size 6. I ate and drank as much as I wanted, whenever I wanted and never had to think about it. It was glorious.

Problem is, I got older...I had a baby...and my metabolism took a permanent vacation...and then I had another baby. In the words of a friend, I ate anything that wasn't nailed down. So, here I am at almost 28 years old...doing a happy dance at fitting in to size 12 jeans and actually being able to wear them out in public...b/c lets face it, fitting in to them and having them be appropriate for the outside world are two very different things.

I'm down 15 lbs...after 2 1/2 months of weight watchers, I'm pretty damn happy about that. I'd still like to lose another 15-20, but right now I'm focusing on the little milestones!

What should I be for Halloween?

Every year we go to a Halloween party...this year is supposedly the final one. After 10, it's understandable...but doubtful.

Anyway, what should I/we dress up as??
Past years:

1999: Hooker

2000: Fairy/Princess

2001: Succubus

2002: Cat (I was 8 months prego...and there was a stolen camera this year, so no pics)
2003: Santa's mistress

2004: Dark angel

2005: Geisha girl

2006: School girl

2007: Country girl (was newly prego and only at the party for an hour)

Next year, provided we have a party to go to and I'm skinny:

Although I am not delusional, I know my boobs will never look like that!

But...what to do this year??

And can we talk about how chubby I got over the past 10 years. Ah, to have my 19 year old body back again...and actually appreciate it!

My Husband Rocks

So I am combining MHR Friday with our anniversary.
We celebrated 4 years yesterday...well, I use the term celebrated loosely. We really didn't do much but plan on going out for dinner tomorrow. What can I say, we're an old married couple, we don't party during the week.

Why does he rock...this week he rocks because he doesn't get offended when I ignore him, my children, the house work and everything else b/c I'm sick...oh, and b/c I am so incredibly addicted to reading the Twilight saga that nothing matters other then Edward Cullen and his world of vampires, werewolves, and misguided love.
Also...he loves me in spite of the fact that I'm messy and moody...and can be a general pain in the ass. For 9 years...yes, we've been together for NINE YEARS, he's loved me, unconditionally.

btw, if you are still waiting on the vacation recap and pictures...please be patient, I've also ignored the online world due to my recent addiction. It's a sickness that can't be helped.

Yes, I'm back

I've actually been back...but I've been a lazy blogger...and tired...and sick...and addicted to Twilight...and had a lot on my mind....and well, I just haven't been in the mood to post much. Shocking, I know.

Loads of pics and updates coming soon. Once I get my head screwed back on properly.
