And a daughter who would have been 16 that watchs us from heaven. We recently lost another baby at 7 weeks along. After the loss of our 2nd daughter we tried to have another baby for almost 11 years with no luck.....then 5 years ago Wham-o I was miracliously pregnant!!! I lost 55 pounds after her birth but gained about 25 back, I want it gone again and for good this time!!!

I found this little saying as I was going through some of my grandparents things.....
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with it's twist and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up thought the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit
I want to run a 5K
I want to fit into my size 10 jeans again.
I want my husband to be proud that I am his wife and look good!
But mostly I want to be healthy!!!
I try to get in at least an hour of exercise a day, weather that is doing squats while waiting on the laundry or just going up and down the steps a few times, I do The Biggest loser Boot camp and Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, which is killing me by the way!!!!!!
I am from a little town called Streator. I have lived here my entire life, and dont have any plans on going anywhere...unless Dierks or Donnie want me to move with them HAHAHA!! I am currently in school going for nursinga nd it is way harder than I thought it was going to be! But I feel if I put my mind to it I can do it.
I am COMPLETELY OBSESSED Dierks Bentley and DONNIE WAHLBERG!! (New Kids on the Block!) They are sooooo cute and super great guys!
I love to read, and right now am reading the Twilight series...I am in the third book....BUT I only let myself read one or two pages a day because there are only 4 books total and when I finish what will I do!!
