Giving Up Crack.

You know what the hardest thing about being Southern and dieting is?

Giving up sweet tea.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry...I know..I'm breaking the rule of Southern-ness. But if I ever want to be skinny, I have GOT to cut out all that sugar. 

It's ridiculously hard, I'm not gonna lie. In my household, we would go through a gallon of tea every other day. That's a lot of tea. And might I add, I used 2 cups of sugar per gallon.

Yeah. It was that serious.

But...I have decided to let sweet tea be one of my "weekend rewards". I am only allowing myself to drink it on Saturdays and Sundays. So, if we go out to eat, I can enjoy a nice big glass of my crack sweet goodness.

Oh, and I vow to never, ever, ever, eat McDonald's again. 
I told Doug I didn't want the kids to eat any more "Happy" Meals anymore either, but he said we should "let them be kids". In other words, we should let them eat plastic food that is somehow passed by the FDA as real food. 
*double barf*

Catching up a bit.


I've been MIA lately. It's because I just now downloaded Firefox to my Mom's computer. Next week needs to hurry UP so I can get a new laptop!

I've started my online classes. So far, the Algebra is pretty easy; the Art Appreciation is going pretty slow (which is fine by me because I still haven't gotten my book); and Physical Science.....ugh. I hate science. I have not a CLUE as to what is going on. And I ordered my ebook last night and STILL can not access the site OR get help from the customer service. Screw online classes. Next semester, I'm not taking a single one. Blaahhhhh.

Doug and I have been counting calories. He's lost 10 pounds and I've lost 7 so far. But I'm stuck :/ I guess I just wanted the weight to just all fall off at once lol. But he bought The Biggest Loser for the Wii today so maybe it will kick my butt into shape again. Can we say hellooooooo high school body? (Minus stretch marks, bigger boobs, and widened hips. LOL!)

And here are a few recent pics.
My husband brought me home a gift yesterday evening. It was in a cute pink gift bag with a sweet card, The Hunger Games (yayyy!), and crazy socks. And all because it was Thursday:) He's so sweet. I wuv hims. <3

Oh, and if you're on Twitter, follow me!!

My Resolutions for 2012

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend. I brought in the New Year with my hubby around a small bonfire in our yard seeing that it was like 50 degrees lol.

I have quite a few resolutions for this year. I'm determined to make myself a better person.

#1- Eat healthier. Exercise. Lose about 60-70 pounds. Hubbs is gonna be doing this with me. So I know I will have plenty of support. It's going to be hard but we will be motivating each other. And we aren't the only ones that will benefit from this; the kids will be eating healthier, too!

#2- Make all "A's" in school. This would make me so proud of myself! I would love to graduate with honors. Maybe that will motivate my own kids for when they are in school:)

#3- Become active in church. I know if God is in my life, He will help me to be a better wife and mother.

#4- Start waking up at the same time everyday. When I wake up earlier to an alarm, I seem to have more energy than if I wake up later. We shall see lol.

#5- Learn to sew. I have been wanting to learn forever now but I haven't had a working sewing machine! My Nana recently brought me a sewing/embroidery machine but I need someone to help me get started lol.

#6- Focus on getting From Bottoms To Bows out locally rather than online...I hate shipping things for some reason lol. I'm debating on just deleting my Facebook page for FBTB. The ones who order from me are friends anyways lol!

#7- Spend more time with kids. I know I'm home with the all day but I want to DO more with them. They are growing up so fast that it's scary. Kenzie will start PreK in August!!! Ahhhhhh! :/

#8- Stick with a cleaning schedule. I'm tired of being super stressed because of the house so I've made a cleaning schedule. Now if only we will get a dishwasher soon.... :)

Maybe I will accomplish these things. I can't wait. :) Anyone else have any Resolutions?
