My list!Collapse )
Which song by The Beatles is your favorite, and why?

I can't pick just one, that's just impossible.

It's kinda of funny that the title of Writer's Block is "Do you want to know a secret", because that's on my list!

So, here's my top 5 favorite Beatles songs:

1. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Molly is the leader of the band!) I played this song over and over and over again after mom passed away. Life Goes on, la la la la, life goes on.

2. I am the Walrus (goo-goo-ga-joob!) (Mike and I have had many a conversation on how to say that AND spell it.

3.  All You Need is Love.

4. Hello, Goodbye (this song was in my head the whole time we were in Vermont to get married. I blame Target, who was using that tune for their ad at the time.)

5. Do You Want to Know a Secret?

A Day In My Life

Here's a day in my life, the day I turned 30. It's a typical work day and a non-typicaly evening where I'm by myself with nothing important to do. Someday I'll post pics from a typical workday. But here's my day! Enjoy!!! (and forgive the hugeness of the majority of the pictures, I lost patience with photobucket. It's taken me almost 3 days to get everything done for this post!!!)

A Day in the life....Collapse )

Thankful Friday

I haven't been doing super long posts lately only because I don't have the time/patience to type everything out. So here's an abbreviated list of this week's happenings for which I'm thankful:

1. A big weight loss to boost my morale. Seriously, I didn't think the scale would be that forgiving and was considering skipping this week's weigh-in because I was scared of my results. I faced my fear and went anyway. And it paid off. A LOT.

2. My husband. He's my cheerleader, my moral support, my best friend, my favorite person in the whole wide world.

3. Scrubs. I'm not too fond of the scrubs idea at work yet, but it has been nice to just put on the same thing everyday to get ready for work. Less time to figure out what to wear! I still need to find a different top, because the one I have has no shape whatsoever. Unless you consider a blob a shape.

4. Lilies. I have one bloomed in our flower bed right now! It's so pretty!!!

5. My friends. Every one of my friends is unique in their own special way, and that's why they're in my life.

And that's all for now, I'm going to get some lunch with my hubby before work.

Ta ta for now!!! ♥


I need to brag, just for a short minute.

I'm down 12.2 pounds since April 23!

Yay me!!! :D

Biking and walking has definitely paid off!

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled friends list :)

Thankful Friday

This week, I'm thankful for:

1. My husband.
2. Wonderful friends who back me up and understand my moods every so often.
3. Livejournal and being able to vent my frustrations.
4. Beer
5. Being off this weekend
6. My nephew and his cute little babbles
7. The Office and Friends reruns
8. Valentines
9. new pens to use at work
10. purring playful kitties

I need a scanner

I am so jealous of people who have posted old pictures of themselves on here and on Facebook. I dug up some of my old pictures and snapped pics of them with my Blackberry. They're blurry, but you get the idea!

Me at Atwood Lake. They have since torn down this cool jungle gym thingie. I added the butterfly sticker while making a scrapbook for school or something. I really don't know how old I am in this? Maybe 5?

My cousin, April, and me. I had peach fuzz on my head till I was like 2, so therefore pics of me at that age always featured a bonnet as well.

I LOVE this picture, because it reminds me of everything family and holidays have always meant to me. This was in 1988, for an Easter Egg Hunt at my Grandma's house with my cousins. On the couch from left to right: Andrea, Me, April (holding Heather), and Amanda. On the floor is: Scott (my brother), Drew, Tyler and Travis. What's sad about this picture is Heather, the baby, died about 6 months after this picture. I remember always being jealous of April for getting to hold Heather and I never got the chance. Now, as an adult, I think of the bigger picture and how horrible it would be to lose a child. Wow, just wow.

So there's my memories! I just might have to take pics of my hubby now too, hahaha!


Is your cat plotting to kill you?

Catcher's just a bastard, but I don't think he would do such an act. But that could be a facade....



A super special thank you goes out to carneillian   for sending me a voucher for a paid account! I've never had a paid account before, so YAY!!! Now I can feel all elite and stuff. Thanks so much, it really made my day!!! :D

Another Meme...

I know I've taken on a lot with my blog lately, but this one is REALLY cool and I'd really like some of my friends to participate! The more the merrier!!! (And it'll give me some things to think about!)

Special thanks go out to notapromqueen and birdsonthewire (the originator) for this meme. It's super cool!!
