this is my confession

life has been crazy these days, and i was finally able to make it to the gym in the morning before baker left for work. i was feeling really bleh. not sure exactly what it was, but i was just not feeling it. when i got out of the car to make my way in i looked down and felt like i totally looked pregnant. how in the world did that happen? i like to blame it on the c-section. never again will my body ever be the same. ever! dane just turned one. so i really have no excuse.

so rather then work really hard to get back to my fighting weight, i picked up a pregnancy book hoping everyone in the place would think i was pregnant. seriously? who does that?

i guess i can’t get offended if some lady in line at the grocery store asks how far along i am. maybe she saw me at the gym reading my pregnancy books. totally got her.

Kristin - You are freaking hilarious!! I♥you man!! I though you were going to confess that you really were preggers!!hahaMay 18, 2010 – 11:39 am

justin - haha.. love the shot!May 19, 2010 – 12:37 pm

Michelle Sidles - You are HILARIOUS!! ;) Pass that book, please. ;) May 19, 2010 – 1:10 pm

Kaysha - You crack me up!!June 12, 2010 – 8:38 pm

katie hatch - I’m having this same problem! Totally have NOT lost my baby weight yet and baby is 1 now… UG!November 11, 2010 – 9:34 pm

the perfect mix

i don’t use this blog too often to blog about personal stuff. it’s my mission to change that. and if you ever really wanted to get down to the nitty gritty of me, i share most of that over on my family blog. you can get there by clicking on the tab over there <--------------. but as an inroduction on this blog, here is my first born. Emerson Lou.

and if you want to know me, you should know her. and if you want to know my husband, you should know her. she is like the perfect mix of the two of us. it’s incredible to see. she surprises me every day with the things she says, and knows. and she is not even three! she has her dad’s passion and determination. i love that about her. she knows how to work a room, a trait that she got from me before i was married, and she’s got more love to share then she knows what to do with, and she never gives up.

case in point. she was watching yo gabba gabba when the “cool tricks” segment came on and she saw a little kid balancing a spoon on her nose. she mastered the skill within a minute. love her to pieces.

Kristin - I haven’t met Baker but I know you and I see you definitely! I think it’s the whole spoon on the nose thing with the eyes looking over to the side!!April 22, 2010 – 12:06 pm

Michelle Sidles - Great shot! ;) April 22, 2010 – 12:20 pm

Becky - awwwww, I <3 her too and haven't even met her yet. She'll make my boy real happy some day. :) April 22, 2010 – 1:15 pm

2 minutes flat

i have a confession, and it’s become quite the problem. a problem for these ever growing “problem areas”.

i don’t know when to put down the fork.

seriously, i don’t. and not even just the fork. the spoon, the chopsticks, the skewer, my hand. if it transports food from one place to my mouth, i physically can not put it down. i could literally eat popcorn for an entire movie if the bucket didn’t run out. i can eat more slices of pizza then i would like to admit, and please oh please do not ask me how many double stuffed oreos i could take down in one sitting. please don’t.

i had to pick up a dessert for a church function last night, and while i was at the bakery i laid eyes on the most beautiful looking eclair’s i have ever seen. i don’t even like chocolate that much, but i couldn’t resist. i got home, and it was seriously gone within two minutes.

wondering why there is already a bite taken out of it? well, ummm, i may or may not have broken into the box at the first red light. don’t judge. and why isn’t the fork dirty you ask? who needs a fork when you have your very own hands. pathetic.

there seems to be a common denominator in my over indulgences. my bare hands. so unless i am willing to chop em off i better get on top of my self control.

easier said then done.

Kristin - and you didn’t even save me a bite!April 14, 2010 – 9:06 pm

Michelle Sidles - You make me laugh!April 15, 2010 – 11:22 pm
