Thanksgiving & the In-Laws


It's official...we are having thanksgiving at our house this year! WOW. I am really excited..Only my husbands family is able to come which is enough because that's at least four additional people. However, I don't cook...it's not for a lack of trying. Because I certainly have tried many times I just get distracted and then something burns or boils over. My best dish is kraft mac & cheese. It is probably my favorite food because I can consistently make it well every time. Anyways, back to my thoughts. My husbands parents only came to visit us at our last place when we got married. They were there for the ceremony and then helped us pick out a new living room set and tv for our wedding present. We lived there over a year and he lived there a year before I moved in. So this is a pretty big deal that they are going to travel across the country to come visit. Needless to say I'm already thinking about the plans. We got all of our fine china as wedding gifts but I don't have a table cloth. we have a round table that turns oval when the leaf is in which we will need with everyone. I have no idea the length of table cloth I need...nor do I know how to find this measurment. It's domestic things like this that prove I should be a career woman...rather than a domestic goddess for my husband...I will be more helpful then. I'm also concerned about the food. I'm sure his parents will help they like to cook...darhlinsd husband wants to prove he can do it alone! (ahhhh) We shall see.


The whole pregnancy things has just been between me and my husband and this blog...which no one I know knows about. Until today I finally told one of my close friends that I want to have a baby. She then told me I needed to wait 5 years so we could have children together. I told her I could have a second child by then with her and that seemed to satisfy her. Anyways, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I don't know why I thought it would be...well that's not true I did. Because I moment I tell someone that's what I want it becomes real. Then from that moment on I feel like there is this pressure to get pregnent quickly. Which for some does happen. But I have PCOS and everything I've every read said that it's extremely hard to get pregnent. So therefore the reason I don't want to tell anyone. On the flip side I have to talk about it otherwise I'll go crazy. So when my friend asked me tonight is I was thinking about it I just spilled. Now I feel better I have one person, who now that I think about is the best person I could have told, and I don't feel like I need to talk about it to everyone in case things don't progress as quickly as I'd like.

Volunteering is my new Career


Since finding a job has become more of a challenge then I thought it was going to be...I'm looking into volunteer work. I need something other then working out to look forward to. I filled out all the information for Habitat for Humanity and I looked into positions at the shelter where we just adopted our puppies. I found a hospital that has volunteer opportunities but I don't want to get in over my head at too many different places. The hospital is my back up in case the other two can't use me. Meanwhile, the job hunt it still on I haven't given up hope....I just have to remember that Pensacola is very different than D.C. I'm really excited to get started working somewhere! :)

Babies on the brain


To have a baby or not to?!


This is where we are. We have been married for a year and 4 months and it seems like the next step is here. Over the past couple of months I have debated with myself if this is what we should do...I mean are we finacially ready...can we raise a baby?!? The majority of our close friends have children ranging in age from 3 years old to newborns and they are all doing just fine. But before now I've never actually picture myself with a child...and right now I can't get the thought out of my head. Now the logical side says to STOP! don't even think about...you should be focusing on a career. But I currently don't know what I want to do other than I know that I want to work. I'm also nervous that if we start trying and we don't get pregnent right away i'll be devestated. I know that I put my whole heart into things...I'm emotional that way. So i'm going to make a doctors appointment and start there...no stress, just fun...I mean the process is the best part right?!?

30 Day Shred


Since we are starting out in a new state I'm going to start a new healthy life style change. I'd like to say that I will eat healthy all the time and that I will have more will power to say no to sugary, totally bad for me, yet they taste so good foods....but I can't. I will try really hard to eat more fruits and veggies and drink more water. My goal is to work out everyday even if it's just walking the puppies. i am also going to give Jillian Michaels a chance to prove that she is worth all the talk. I researched the dvd and heard how almost everyone showed improvements in strength and if not a lot of weight loss a loss of inches. Either way it sounds like a winner to me. I started tonight Week 1 Day 1. The movements are not hard to do...but they will kick your butt (or at least it kicked mine) I know that it's not good to work out every day that there is supposed to be a rest day but from what i have read the people who received the best results do the video every day for 30 days. I'm going to come up with a workout schedule that involves more cardio then just what the DVD offers. I'm confident that for right now at least I won't need any other arm toning exercises. My current weight is for me to know but you bet that as soon as I start seeing results I'll happily share!! I wonder if anyone else has any ideas on what other workouts are good to do with this DVD?!

Step 1


I've never blogged before...I've read a lot especially when I was planning my wedding. I realize I don't use proper punctuation or grammer. I know I'm terrible at spelling. But this is my new outlet. I seem to need one right now more then ever. I just moved to Pensacola from Washington, DC. I don't know anyone around here and our neighbors don't seem to be the welcoming kind. I have two 3 month old lab puppies and a 4 year old kitten. I have been apply for what little jobs have been posted online...but nothing really exciting has come along. I'm sure there are many recent graduates out there who feel the same way I do! I just keep asking myself what do I want to be when I grow up..and I keep coming up blank...
