Still Alive! - with lots of new photos

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Okay... I figured since I've received several messages from a few SparkFriends as to what happened to me, I should jump on and post a blog. LOL I am still here, alive, and kicking (well, kind of). Getting sick at the beginning of the month really threw me into a tailspin. I've managed to still get in some basic cardio, though nothing to brag about most of the time. But pretty much everything else has gone downhill for the last couple of weeks. I've even resorted back to my old friend Coca-Cola over water.

I know now that I really do need SP and my friends here to help keep me on track. Today is a new day and time to get back on track. I refuse to gain back the weight I've worked so hard to lose through the holidays.

On a positive note, I got our tree up and am working on booking some holiday photo shoots. I did some test shots with Daisha and our neighbor's granddaughter over the weekend and got some fun shots.

And we went to see Santa at Bass Pro this past weekend. Daisha totally gets that Santa can't be everywhere at once and that many of the guys in the stores are just his helpers, but she swears, after seeing this particular Santa for 3 years in a row, that he is the real deal. And who am I to argue with a 7-year old about Santa Clause!?! LOL This wasn't a productive trip to see Santa since neither child wanted to cooperate by the time it was their turn (neither one has much patience right now) so Tony ended up in the pic with them. It's a good thing I managed to get some good shots of them elsewhere in the store - Bass Pro is always a fun place to take pictures!!

    Cool idea using a string of lights for your light source! Very creative. :)

    Jamie, I for one, along with my girls Jess and Jacqueline, are glad that you are alive and kicking. I know that the pressures of doing too much can definitely make you shut down.

    However, don't make me have to drive to ALABAMA (girl, if you knew how much I didn't like living in AL you would understand this threat emoticon ) and kick your booty. You had better not undo all of your hard work. So, get your lips off of that Coca Cola can and get to chugging down some emoticon .

    Jacqueline threatened to kick my booty last week, so I thought I would just follow her lead.

    Love you chica. Get it together though...I am just saying a trip to AL would not be pretty. Keep that in mind if you get the urge to sip on another Coca Cola emoticon emoticon

    There is a guy that works at our Target that looks just like Santa...and his name tag says "Santa". It's cute, but it's created about a million problems with Casey...little Sheldon doesn't understand why he's working at Target, gets lit that the Santa at the mall is the "wrong one", etc. I thought her head was going to explode when the poor guy got a second job at Lowe's... :)
