I have always been a crafty person but recently I have come to terms with the fact that I am completely addicted to crafting. I spend hours thinking about crafts to do. Since I don't have very much time to actually do them, they get done piece by piece when I can get to them. I guess it's better than being addicted to something bad!

Hittin' The Trail

Just before I got pregnant with my baby I was in the best physical condition of my life. Even better than when I was a high school and college athlete. My car was repo'd in October 2009 and I walked 10 miles to and from work everyday, and I only had about an hour and 30 minutes to do that. Then we moved closer in town, but I was still walking about 5 miles to and from work every day. On top of that I coached my son's basketball team 3 nights a week, then in the spring I  coached my son's volleyball team 3 nights a week and my daughter's softball team 2 nights a week. I couldn't sit still. My body always wanted to be moving. It had gotten so used to being on the move that it didn't know otherwise. Then midway through softball and volleyball I find out I am just over a month pregnant and the morning sickness kicked in BIG TIME. I pretty much spent May and June of last year ON THE COUCH! I was exhausted and sick to my stomach every minute of the day. Needless to say by the time my precious little baby was born I had gained close to 70 lbs. YIKES! and the little booger only weighed 7lbs 12 oz when she was born. 
She is 10 weeks old now and natural progression has caused me to lose some of the weight. I am also nursing which helps. Unfortunately it is not enough and besides basketball shorts, I fit back into only one pair of my old pants.  
TODAY I STARTED RUNNING! YAY! and it felt great! I didn't get very far before I was out of breath but at least I got my rear end moving!

Busy as a Bee!

I have been so exhausted lately. The baby is a good sleeper, but I have been staying up WAY too late and trying to do 50,000 things everyday. So this week I've pretty much been sleeping every time the baby is asleep, and loving our naps together. As for the wedding, I am already ready to say,'babe, meet me at the courthouse!' I just can't justify spending money on all kinds of non reusable stuff just for one 'party'. We've already changed the colors and theme. The colors are now black and white with a Rockabilly theme. I literally have not even thought about the wedding for the past week because there is simply too much to think about. By the way, the above picture is me and my babe 2 summers ago at our friend's house in Las Vegas.  
Also, Thank you for leaving me comments! I love them!
