So. I gave notice at my job today. I’ve been there five years, and while I mention it every now and then on here I just think its bad form to say too much on a blog about the job. Anyway, I had an interview last week with a different law firm and they called yesterday and offered me the job. I have to send a huge shout out to our good friend Curt for hookin a sister up with the info and...
ROAD TO IMCDA '12: Always have been, always will... →
tridad: Recently there were more than the usual number of posts crossing my dash that all seemed to touch on the same subject. I figured that was a sign to offer up some words of counsel/advice that no one asked for, wants, needs or will find useful. But, since my kids aren’t bothering me at the moment,…
Makes me wanna DIE. Rode the bike (i think it needs a name) this afternoon while Will ran and I srsly thought I was going to monkey afterwards. Wtf? Beryl? What kinda name is that for a tropical storm? Welcome to NC, where we celebrate the beginning of hurricane season with a tropical storm, 3 days before the actual start. Not funny, not funny at all.

Here’s the recipe for the berry trifle I made tonight. It was super easy and very good. I love, love, love this website. She doesn’t use freaky off the wall ingredients and everything we have ever made is good. Plus she gives legit nutrition info, which is always helpful! Hope everyone is having a great long weekend!! Amy
I would like to report that you were again, right. I totally said to hell with the running shorts and rocked the bike shorts uncovered today. Spandex4lyfe, yo! Amy

In scale related news, I have lost a total of 29.6 lbs. Curse you .4 that kept me from the big 30. It’s okay though. I ain’t even mad. In non scale related news, the ‘hater’ at work said again today that she could really tell I was slimming down. No snide follow up remarks this time. Also non scale related, the capris I was rockin today are pretty much hammer pants at...

Carolina Strawberry Festival "5k" recap
First “5k” event of the year. Start time was 7:30 AM. My goal this summer is to break the 30 minute barrier in a 5k, so my secret goal was to go ahead and mark that shit off my list at this event and set another goal. This was an inaugural event so there were only around 125-130 runners. I’m thinking hell I might even place. LOL A local person, who I don’t even know,...
Two different co workers asked me this week if I had lost weight. Only, one followed it up with you look good, and the other followed it up with, “how much have you lost THIS TIME?” Outwardly, I was all “25 lbs” but inwardly I finished that up with “now shut the fuck up and go back to your Hardees, hater” Amy
Best Money Spent Everrrr...
So, today I went in our local bike shop in Wilmington, because I needed some of those adapter things that go on the tires to pump them up. I didn’t have any cash on me at all, and I do hate to use my debit card for 3.00 purchases. So. I thought, well I’ll see what else they have in here I need. $50.00 later I came out with some padded bike shorts. I am NOT a bike shorts kinda gal. I...
To Will, Vera, Curt, Re, and the rest of the crew doing the Strawberry Fest 5k this morning. The girls and I got up super early (for a Saturday) to cheer daddy on! Pics later. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Amy
Strawberry Festival 5k
is on tap for first thing in the morning. First one this year. How have I prepared? Haven’t done a bit of cardio since Monday. LOL It wasn’t intentional, just been super busy every day. I’m hoping it makes me full of piss and vinegar in the morning. Will
Just went to the mall and bought my girls the One Direction CD. File me under best mom everrrrr. Will, on the other hand, might kill me. Lol! Hope everybody is having a good day! Amy
I would never dream of calling a place of business and speaking to the employees there the way some of these people do. I guess maybe I was raised better? Or there are just a lot of assholes? Come on Friday!

Time Marches On...
Is it really almost Mid May? Where is the time going? This year is flying by. We’ve been SO busy these past couple months with dance, softball, t-ball, and SCHOOL, that we haven’t had time to breathe! It’s been a ton of fun though, watching our girls learn to play ball, and figuring out this whole new dynamic. Wow. For the most part, we have had a great experience with softball...
You know its gonna be a bad day when your co-worker announces to the whole office, “dont anybody go into the bathroom for a while”. Your female coworker. Seriously. #tmi #stayhomeifyouhavetheshits
I’ve been such a slacker lately. Amy asked me yesterday if I had given up on Tumblr. Of course, I haven’t given up. I read everyone’s posts daily, but when it comes to posting an update on myself I have been slack. Amy and I have found our focus and things are flowing along smoothly in the areas of diet and exercise. I finally reached my Disney goal of 225 about a month...
The Sunbirds won tonight! Allys softball team, finally won a game, which was an awesome confidence boost! So proud of our girls!
