I'm going to do another list of hunks...and this time, they are almost all new! Gotta keep it updated and fresh! Bet you all can't wait!

Too Soon...

So Tyler leaves this Saturday for New Jersey. He doesn't leave for Afghanistan until the middle of June and Mom, Dad, Gabriel, and I are going up there to see him off, but he leaves here this Saturday.

We had his going away cookout yesterday and it was great. I don't have a lot to write but I wanted to share a picture with everyone because it is precious!!!

My little man with his Uncle Tyler...isn't it adorable?!?! This one is definitely getting printed out and hung up somewhere in the house...and soon!

Day 1 of 365

My newest tattoo (number seven) and my motivation. My mom and I have decided to take this year that Tyler will be overseas and turn it into something positive and work towards a common goal...we are going to use him as motivation to get in shape and, for me, basically better myself in every way. He doesn't leave until June, but I am starting now to get things rolling.

Have you all seen Monsters, Inc.?? Well, this is one of Gabriel's favorite movies and he watches it as often as I will let him. There is a part right near the beginning where Mike (the little green monster with one eye) wakes up Sully (the big blue monster with purple spots and horns) and he is like a personal trainer. He is yelling at him and motivating him and getting him to work out and do what needs to be done.

I wish I had a little green monster to help me get through my workouts. So I am going to channel my inner Mike. When I'm feeling a little unmotivated or I feel like giving in, I am going to picture Mike standing there yelling at me and keeping me motivated. "Less talk, more pain, marshmellow [girl]!" He says 'boy' right there because he is talking to Sully who is, obviously, a male I will have to switch it up a bit.

Haha man, you can tell I have a kid when I use an animated movie for motivation...along with my tattoo...But this gives me a year. I have a few goals along the way and I hope it doesn't take me all year to lose the weight I want but it does give me a little bit of room to have a bad day every once in a while and just pick it right back up and keep going.

He's three!

I can't believe how much he has grown over the years. He is tall enough now that everyone thinks he is a four year old. And it is insane how much he has grown just from last year. I can't believe my baby is three!!

I can't believe it...

My little man is turning 3 in three days!! On Thursday, I will be the mother of a 3 year old!! I can't believe how fast this time has gone. It seems like just yesterday he looked like this...

How can he be turning 3? He's not so little anymore!! This picture was taken in the hospital when he was just a day or two old. I can't believe how much he has changed and just how fast these three years have literally flown by.

On Thursday we are going to Natural Bridge to the Safari Park, the drive thru section and the walk thru section, because he loves animals and some of his favorites are there. He will be able to touch and feed a giraffe and I know he is going to love it!

Josh and my mom have off that day, dad took off, and my brother will be back tonight from training so we are all going and I can't wait!.

And then Gabriel's Spongebob birthday party is on Saturday...I will definitely post pictures!
