Well, it looks like my old/new dream home may be in the reach. The buyers didn't pan out for the house so I am now waiting to hear back from our lender to see if we can buy another house....

I went yesterday with my Dad and I took pictures around the house. I really love it. I love it because it's old and charming, and I love the character. It has just enought space for all of us, plus the upstairs can be made into a fabulous girls room. It has a huge tub up there and a huge bedroom, plus another little room that connects to it that can be used for all their toys.

Today, I let my kids stay home from school. School is out on Friday and my kids are exhausted from ball and last night they didnt fall asleep till close to eleven. I feed them before their games, but after all that playing, they want to eat again when we get home. Tomorrow, I am excited because I get to have lunch in Laiken's classroom and on Friday I am going to the movies and to the park with them. It's also very hard because "R" is in her class and I am praying so hard for her. I'm going to call her R from now on. But I will also enjoy spending time with her. I told her she was pretty last week and she said "No, I'm not." I told her she was, and she said that noone had ever told her she was pretty...it broke my heart and I felt tears welling up in my eyes.

So, I don't talk much about my weight loss journey. But today I ran when I got up for two miles and I feel great so far today. I feel so much better. It's been hard for me to gain weight when I used to spend 4 hours at the gym every day lifting weights with men...and my husband is so dedicated and he eats so good. I am upping my protein like I used to when I was weight lifting and eating my old food....I feel so much better when I eat "clean".

So anyways, here are a few pics of the house...

Love the house pictures. So pretty! Have fun with Laiken's class at lunch on Friday, how fun!

And helllllo, why haven't you ever told me that you weightlifted?! I so long to hear the words, "I love eating clean" come out of someone else's mouth, haha!

Ok, now that you are talking about your hubby's food, I think maybe you have mentioned it before? Anyways, that is awesome! And yes, there is no feeling like weightlifting, it gets me so pumped up! And nope, girls can NOT get bulky, that is such a myth!! Unless like you said, they are taking something. lol Ah, I love it!! Get back into it girl, and you don't have to spend every waking moment a the gym, I get it a 30-45 minute workout during my lunch hour at work!!

btw, it doesn't take much of a person to bash someone anonymously. why don't you quit hiding behind that monitor of yours and tell us who you are.

Love the pictures.

It looks like you just figured out how to delete the comment so I guess you don't need me.

There are some crappy people out there as I'm sure you already know. You can also start moderating them.
