Welcome 2013! Now, play nice!

2012 sucked. Sorry so blunt, but it truly did. I lost 2 grandparents, my dad was hospitalized 6 times, my mini-van bit the dust, I fractured my elbow... You get the idea.

But, I'm leaving 2012 behind and welcoming 2013 with wide open arms. In this new year I am returning to college to finish my RN degree, and I will become an aunt for the first time around July/August.

Also, in 2013 I have set a goal, along with Meagan (@NCCarterFamily) to lose 50 pounds. Reaching this goal would put me at the weight I was when my husband and I first met almost 10 years ago!

So, once again, I welcome you 2013. I have big plans for you!

#Mamavation Monday - Oops!

Wow! The campaign is over! If you're stumbling upon this post and wondering, "what the heck is she talking about?!" I was one of nine Mamavation Graduates who just completed a 7 week bootcamp. In those 7 weeks I lost a total of 15.2 lbs! (Interested in becoming a Mamavation Mom? Check out If you didn't already hear, the campaign shall go on! In a more lax manner, some of us Mamavation Graduates will continue posting and weighing in weekly through the next Mamavation campaign! I instantly agreed when offered this chance because, hey, who doesn't need extra accountability during Christmas?! I have lost about 25 lbs since June of this year and am not trying to gain that all back pigging out on Christmas candies! I do want to apologize for my slacking this week in getting this post up (and the lacking scale pic) it's been a crazy few days car shopping (pulling my hair out here)! Tomorrow morning bright and early I shall snap a photo of my pedicure-needing feet on my scale and paste that bad boy in the bottom of this post.

Back to the old blog...

I was thinking...

I just finished up yet another campaign with Mamavation. With my new blog name and twitter handle you may not know where to look to see my past. Here it is. This blog, once named Christ-Like Mommy, is back and running, but updated for my new persona. Feel free to browse around, there is a couple years worth of posts, good and bad.

Thanks for stopping in to check it out!
