It's time to get healthy-

OK, NO MORE procrastinating!!!! I'm am so sick and tired of being overweight!!! I have decided that its time I put myself as a priority and get healthy. I have let myself go down a path I cannot do anymore. I have been stalking my friend Amy's- Land of Fluff- blog and I cannot believe how couragous she has been blogging about her weight loss journey. She has lost 60 lbs over the last year. She gives me hope that I can do it too. And with this out there for everyone to see maybe it will be an extra incentive to keep it up.

So, on Monday 11/28 I weighed and made a promise to myself that from here on out I will lose weight and start exercising again. UGH! Here goes, my starting weight was 218lbs. It is not my highest but not too far from it. My plan is to journal about my journey and I hope that just like Amy I have success. I have a goal of 160lbs for now. Once I reach that point I will know if I want to set a lower goal weight for myself or not. It's more about looking good and feeling better so a number on the scale isn't necessarily my main concern. 160 is the high end for my height and age.

If anyone hase any encouraging words, recipes anything in general that might be of help to me- I welcome them!!!

This year in review.....

Santa brought....a Family Ski Trip to Taos, New Mexico for Christmas. We left the day after Christmas for skiing with my entire family. My parents, both my brothers and their families and us. We had a great time. Stayed in a huge house. Cousins loved having a slumber party every night! It was all of their first time skiing and they had a blast.

In February, Girls Trip- Santa Monica, California. With our 20 year reunion coming up this summer we planned a little girl time getaway. I grew up with these 3 beautiful ladies- Kristin, Julie and Brandi. They know all my secrets and I would trust them with my life. BFF's FOREVER!

2011 Rodeo Drive- Beverly Hills, CA

20 years ago.....

TEAM HOPE.... This spring we celebrated Hope's 4th "HAPPY HEART DAY" May 16th!!!! (Happy Heart Day= the day she had open heart surgery) We participated and raised money for the American Heart Association's Heart Walk again in Tulsa and OKC in April. Hope is the strongest little girl I know and she amazes me every day. I cannot wait to see all that she will accomplish in her life!

20 year High School Reunion this summer.... ugh! Where has the time gone? Got to see so many friends that I hadn't seen in years. Had so much fun. And of course our "Table of four" me and my besties!

Celebrated our 9th Birthday this year!!! The Tulip Tree-Norman, 24th Ave, Norman OK.

The Tulip Tree-Tulsa....Opened a new location in Plaza Del Sol Shopping Center, 101st and Mingo Tulsa OK in July!! So excited to see how this new venture turns out- Hoping for success!!!!

12 Years of Wedded Bliss! I married the most wonderful, loving, funny man on August 28, 1999. Couldn't imagine my life with anyone else by my side! LOVE YOU SCOTT!!!

Most of our spring and summer was spent playing, watching, living SOFTBALL! I helped coach Hadley's team, The Heart Breakers! She had a great spring and summer season. She started pitching during summer ball. Proud of her, she has a lot of talent if we can keep her focused. LOL!

Hannah also has come around so much this year with her team, The Hot Shots. She makes me super proud! She has improved so much this year. Playing against 12 and 13 year olds and she was only 9 years old. WOW!

Finally made it to Disney World!! Took the girls for a week in Disney the end of September. We had been planning it for a couple years waiting for everyone to get old enough. We went all out and did everything we could. The girls had a blast. Went to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Blizzard Beach and Hollywood Disney. I hope the memories we made will last my girls a lifetime!

This October makes 6 years remission! Blessed to be here still, living my life!

And yes, I'm still a super huge Twilight fan. My obsession has yet to wane... LOL! Have to post a pic of "Edward" in honor of the Breaking Dawn Part I premier!! The movie was so good and now I have to wait a whole year to see Part II.... Dear Summit, can you please just send me out a copy of the next one. I promise I won't leak it to everyone else. I just need to see the rest!!! NOW!!! LOL!

Very long time no see!

OK, thinking I'm ready to try and get back to blogging. I've been a very busy girl the last year or two and now I want to start sharing again! Now let's see.... my girls are now 10, 8 and 5. They are blossoming into little ladies! I cannot believe how quickly they have grown. My store, The Tulip Tree, which I co-own with my momma is doing great! We just opened a new location in Tulsa, OK in July. Our original store is in Norman, OK. BOOMER SOONER!!! The land of OU! BTW, If you've never shopped them stop in sometime soon. We have super cute stuff! Hmmm... what else? I think other than school and softball thats about what my busy schedule has been about. I will post some random pics from the last year. Happy to be back on here and will try to be good and update often! :)
