Hello everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my page!

I am a 25-year-old college grad in the Twin Cities, MN. I graduated in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. I am now working at the University of Minnesota in the Medical School and plan to head to graduate school in a few years for my Masters in Higher Education and Student Affairs.

A little history about myself: I was a skinny kid. I never had to think about gaining weight because I had a crazy amazing metabolism. Those days flew out the window when I got to college. Over the college years I gained at least 30 pounds. I lost 20+ pounds in the past, but gained it ALL back and then some.

During the last few years of college, I got very busy. I usually worked at least 20-30 hours a week on top of my studies. In the last few months before getting my degrees, I started working full time at my current position in addition to finishing out my full time coursework.

Now I feel as though the world is at my fingertips and that my life is just beginning! A fresh start at life means a fresh start for a healthy lifestyle. Thanks for joining me on my journey!

    I see that you have a few fitness minutes on the GLBTQ team. Even though it's the holidays, keep pushing my friend.

    Yikes, that is a lot of people! We are shooting for 100. We've invited about 120, so we'll see how many show up. We're going to have to end up having a party for the fiancée's dad's side of the family, it's humungous! Is yours this year or next?

    Yep, desk job. It started when I worked at a warehouse and pulled the tugger's gas with my thumb every night.

    The chicken sweaters.. it was like a bowtie shape with a hole in the center, and adjustable tabs on the ends to button them together. They were super cute!

    How many people are you having at your wedding? Ours is pretty small, so I guess we're lucky in the address department. My mom is super organized, so she has everybody's still.

    Yes, I knit and crochet as well. I tend to go in spurts where that's all I will do, then take a break for a while or move on to something else like cross stitching. I'm in a dry phase right now, mainly because I'm having carpal tunnel issues, boo! Baby blankets are fun! The last project I worked on was knitting little sweaters for my friend's chickens. It was a super fun project, but the chickens weren't able to handle them, so I was super bummed. I was hoping for some pictures. At least the chicken mama was super excited about them, so that made it worth it.

    Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog and the advice on what to do about the dress. I should probably order the size that I am right now just to be safe. Decisions! I do like that idea of seeing how loose it is when it comes in :) We pretty much have our address gathering done too.. we are on the ball! lol Hope everything is going smoothly for you! I see you crochet and knit - you are extra cool in my book!

    Too bad the snow missed Duluth during this storm. I'm still in my PJ's and it is almost noon. I like when mother nature makes us take a break and it isn't from anything devastating.
