I am alive & well! Just been busy busy BUUUUUUSY! We went outta state for Christmas & stayed for a few weeks then took some neices & nephews back w us because we love them ever so much! :) We had a 13 yr old a 10 yr old & two 3 yr olds here with us & sooooooooooo much fun!!!! We did lots of fun So Cal stuff some of which I hope to post for you! We really had a blast.

In other FABULOUS news I've lost over 30 lbs since my bday!!! Yeah, that's rights peeps! I'm rockin my world! I've got about 30 more lbs to go till I get to my pre preg weight then about...oh nevermind... I'm doing FANTASTIC! that's all that matters.

D just started his LAST semester in law school. Can I get a "WHOOP!?" THAT GOD!!!!!! Were nearing the end of the 3 year madness! Next we have a MOVE (yes that's right! Tell u all about that in time...) then D preps for the Bar & job hunting here we go!

I remember 4 years ago D lost his job due to the changing market. We debating having a baby & going 2 law school. Long story short we dove in.... I remember thinging about how if we had a baby it would be 3 when he graduated... WOW! Being on the other wside feels so different. D always said I was "bright eyed & bushy tailed." I hated that...but I think he was right.... ahhhh the ignorance of youth...

More news....we are making some MAJOR changes to save money for our impending move & lifestyle change as well as to just have enough each month for our bills & needs. I've been able to cut costs down to save about 200 a month but we will lose the internet w this cut. Hense no more blogging come mid feb for who knows how long.... Or if I do blog it will be like this or not too often. Bummer. But i'll survive. lol

I am also startin to add child care to my daily routine for a few days a week. we should be making about 350-500 a month additional to put towards savings. I am very thankful for this opportunity!

I have a giveaway coming soon! remember Ouchies bandgages? they started a new line Mr Men & Little Miss bandaged! ADORABLE! Can't wait to share w you!

So sad you'll be gone, but I think I'm going on a hiatus from blogging (due to not having internet) here soon, probably starting next week. I am going to try to make it to the library at least once a week to get my fill.

I'm trying to lose a gob of weight - can I ask how you've done it?

Heyyyyyyyy! Things sound great, and so freakin awesome about it being your hubby's last semester, that is so wonderful!
R ya maybe gonna move to Az???
I am sad you may lose your internet, that was one thing I couldn't do...I got rid of caller id, long distance on the land line, and went to basic cable when things were tight but I could never be without the fabulous internet...well mainly because that is how I go to school!
Anyway glad to see things are great and your feeling wonderful.
Super congratulations on the new bod...I am doing my second round of drastic dieting day 2!
