Here & Now

I know its not Monday...but whatever. I have some down time and I actually feel like writing...well, typing.

So lately I've been;

Obsessing Over: My Kindle Fire!! It was a late birthday gift and I am absolutely in LOVE with it! I have already read four books on it. You can basically do anything on it. I just love it. I was already trying to talk myself into getting some kind of electronic book thing so I didn't end up a book hoarder, so when I got this it was just perfect timing! Now I'll be buying only a fraction of the number of actual books I was buying before.

Thinking About: My upcoming college graduation. I mean I get my degree last summer, but because of the actual month when I got it, they weren't putting me into the program for the 2010-2011 commencement. So I decided against walking right then and put it out of my mind. But when we were gone in Texas I was invited to walk in this year's ceremony, and decided to go ahead and do it. Not just for myself, but also for my kids. In an ideal world I should have graduated from all the college I want to do BEFORE having my kids...but that didn't happen. Instead I persevered through being a single parent, and many other hurdles and ended up with my first college degree. My children should see me walk across that stage and know that I reached the first of my many goals with them in my life.

Working On: Taking the necessary steps for Ryan to make a career change and for me to get back into school. We've been working on this stuff with Ryan for a while and it's finally coming to an end and we can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel! I cannot wait!! As for me, I took the last year off to just focus on Ryan and my kids. So now that I can see some time coming free, I am going to start the last few years of school that I need to do. I just have to decide on which school I am going to go to! EEK!

Anticipating: The summer! I am not a hot weather type of girl. I prefer the colder weather. Anddd summer equals Max being home all day...and lots of bickering between him and Gabriella. It should be an interesting season to say the least! We are kicking off this summer with our First Annual End of the School Year Party for the kids! We have been talking about doing this since last summer and we decided to finally do one this summer and make it a yearly tradition for our kids. It's just something nice for the kids to jump into summer with something super fun!

Listening To: Right now I'm playing my Pandora station and Boyz II Men, "On Bended Knee" just came on. Swooon. It's baby making music! Besides what I'm listening to right now, I just wanted to share that I have been crazy obsessed with the song "Birthday Cake" by Rhianna. I don't know what it is, but that song with have me dancing in my car as soon as it comes on! I LOVE it! Now if I could only figure out how to put a song as my ringtone on my iPhone I'd be one happy girl.

Eating: PSSH. Not much! Because we are going to have another baby sooner rather than later, I have been trying to make my body healthy again. I want to make sure that when we do get pregnant that I'm as healthy as can be that way the pregnancy might be easier on my body that the last one, and maybe even after the baby is born the weight wont stick. And who doesn't want to be skinny? So I've been taking vitamins for all kinds of stuff and dropped the soda and even stopped eating CANDY! Sigh...I love soda and candy.

Wishing: That I could stop being so hard on myself. Sometimes I am extra critical of myself and I beat myself up over things that shouldn't even phase me. But I am only human and in those moments I check myself and force myself to give myself a break. No one is perfect right?

I've been missing this blogging stuff...

Talk to you soon,


Three Years and Counting!

So, today is my THIRD wedding anniversary! I seriously get mind blown when I think about that. It does not feel like its only been three years AT ALL! I feel as though we have lived our whole lives together!

Ryan is my absolute best friend. He is the person I tell everything to and the person I turn to for everything. He is supportive, encouraging, loving, caring, and hilarious. He is a fantastic father, better than I could have ever dreamed. He is just an all around AMAZING man. And to put the cherry on top of the Wonderful Husband Sundae, he is so very very very handsome!! Like seriously...he is beyond handsome.

I am SO freaking blessed it's nearly unbelievable!

I look forward to so many more years of happiness, love, and laughter with my best friend.

Talk to you soon,
I mean,
