Time has flown by

I cannot believe it has been so long since I posted. Life has been a whirlwind crazy ride and I have forgotten all about blogging. I am sure no one ever reads this, but I have followers so whatever. I write this mostly for me. So much has changed since April of last year, wow. Kimmy and I have moved in with Matt and are getting into the swing of being a real family. I love him with all my heart and cannot believe we have been together almost a year...March 21, 2013 will be the 1 year anniversary of our first date. We have been inseparable ever since. I have learned through living with him how to really make a relationship work. I respect him more than anyone I have ever been with before and cannot wait to spend the rest of my life making him happy. I love that we went and looked at rings! I have known since our second date he was the one. I tell you this year is going to be one to remember! I sold my truck, to my dismay. But it is for the better. Also, I am so close to being done with my bachelors! Graduation is may of next year!! YAY!! And not to mention I have an amazing job I love. Life has really fallen into a great rhythm and I wouldnt change a thing!

happy does not begin to cover it

when i started this year, i knew it would be my year. i had no idea it would be so outstandingly amazing! i have moved to a new department in my job and i love it. my teacher is great and it makes my job as an aid so much easier. my daughter is thriving in preschool and will be right on track to moving to a new class in the fall... she might even be able to start kindergarten early! such a smart cookie :) i have found an amazing man and i wouldnt trade him for anything. i cannot remember a time i have been happier. i love him with all my heart and hes a perfect fit with me and kimmy. another plus: he has a dog that is kimmy's new best friend. i am working on getting rid of bills and was able to sell my truck and get a car that i have paid off. i am looking forward to everything that is still to come. i cannot wait. :)

New years reso...what?

Well I have fallen into the same lull I think everyone does with new years resolutions. BUT I refuse to give up. I am getting back on track and am going to beat this! I have been searching for new workouts and I have been very successful. I wish I had the determination my sister does... and the resources. Wishful thinking is not going to get me anywhere. Hard work and sweat will do it. And by the time my bestie gets August- I will be well on my way to being at my goal weight!

Kimberly loves Santa

Kimberly has always had a good time when visiting santa. this year seems to be no different.
2009 so she had just woke up from a nap and was still half asleep...i think this is still good for a one year old!

My bestie's 21st birthday!

Not everyday do we really get to celebrate the ones we love with such enthusiasm as a best friends 21st birthday. Last night, was my opportunity to celebrate the life that is my bestie Caitlyn. She is truly amazing and i could not ask for a better best friend. I do not know where i would be without this woman in my life. She is a great mommy to her little boy tegan, an amazing girlfriend to her boyfriend Cody, and a good auntie to my one little one kimmy. I am so glad i was able to share in this fun night with her and everyone we are friends with!

Putting my family back piece at a time

I never thought this day would come. after all the heartache and pain. my family will finally be all in one room for the first time in 12 years. hopefully the bad blood will wash away some...but who knows. i had to take that first step in faith and with a quivering voice, i made this happen. i didnt do it for me, i did it for kimberly. i want her to know that people love her no matter what. they can put aside their differences for her. shes important. i never want her to feel the things i have. i never want her to feel rejected by the people that are supposed to be there for your everything...her first day of kindergarten, first christmas program, first day of junior high...her prom, and her graduation from high school and college. i never want her to feel regret that maybe this is all her fault. i have felt that way half my life and i am finally taking a stand against it for her. i am going to put myself in awkward situations, put my feelings on the line, and get my heart broke just so she doesnt have to. this is my job as her momma. i suffer so she feels love. thats all a child should have to worry feeling loved. my mom and dad havent been able to be in the same room since their divorce...and next sunday...they are coming to my house and putting aside the bull for kimberly. and then her christmas program is monday. i really hope this goes well. i want her to know she is loved more than anything...i really hope this doesnt blow up in my face...
