I am a Loser too

A great friend of mine from college has started a website about his journey to losing weight. I frequent his wife's blog ( and thats where I first heard about it. He has inspired me to join him. I have completely let go of myself too in the weight department and I cannot stand it anymore. I am putting it all out there and am not hiding behind it anymore. My hope is that by writing about it where everyone can see it will help me to work harder to achieve and lose the weight. Come visit and leave comments on ways to help motivate me, offer advice, or just tell it like it is. I am accountable not only to myself but all who visit this site. If you are like me maybe this will inspire you.

Today, it has been 2 years since our little princess Hope had open-heart surgery. We have lots to celebrate today. So much to be thankful for. God has truely blessed us in so many ways but today one of our most precious gifts is healthy and thriving. 2 years ago we handed our sweet little 5 month old baby girl off to the doctors and nurses at Children's Hospital not knowing what was to come for our precious girl. I have always thought of myself as a very strong person but handing her off not knowing if she would come back to us alive brought me to my knees. The absolute hardest thing I have ever done. Scott and I were so scared. From the day that we found out about her condition we knew this day would come, but never had we anticipated the feelings of helplessness we would feel. Just thinking about it now makes my heart ache. After 5 1/2 long hours waiting we finally got the news she was out of surgery and doing well. The first time we got to see her I was terrified. She looked like a little baby doll. No movement and on a ventilator. Slowly she started to move the following day and finally woke up. She suprised us all right off kicking around and moving...crying for me to hold her. The memories are so fresh in my mind. 6 days after her surgery she was released to come home. Everyday since she has continued to get strong and grow so much. We are so thankful for Dr. Peter and the staff for fixing our sweet girls heart. We don't know what the future holds as far as more surgeries, but for now she is healthy and happy and flourishing. Thank you God for our blessing... our HOPE! We love you so much Hope Abigail. Happy <3 Day!

Hadley's Birthday Party

We had Hadley's 6th birthday party on Friday. It was at Miller's Swim School in Tulsa. The girls all had a great time. We had originally planned it for this next Saturday, but I found out that her t-ball team was to be in a tournament so we had to switch the date at the last minute. A lot of her classmates didn't get the info in time and missed the party. She didn't notice though. They all had a really fun time. We had pizza and a cupcake cake. She got lots of really fun presents from her friends and then they got to swim for quite a while. We gave Hadley her present the day before on her real birthday. She got a Nintendo DS. She loves it... I had to go to Norman to work at the store this weekend and Scott said she played it the whole time I was gone. Looks like we're going to have to limit her play time. I am glad she likes it though. Our girl is growing up. I cannot believe she is 6. Fells like just yesterday she was a little baby. Man, how time flies.
