of the week.
fastlane rudeness.
You know when your schedule is so busy you dont even have time to stop and think? And you cant even remember what day it is? But all you know is you have to be somewhere NOW and you have to go to the store NOW and you have to drop off something NOW and you have to GO NOW AND DO NOW AND BE NOW! And OMG! I am in the fastlane, been stuck here for 3 days and I dont think I'm getting out for a couple more days.
and rudeness.
and old rudeness.
and find rudeness.

OMG yes this is a NEW post!
I am pretty sure that everyone was beginning to think that I was never coming back... hell... I was beginning to think that I was never going to BE ABLE to come back. Blogging among a hundred other things that I would rather be doing in life has been put on the back burner lately. Such is life though... and here I am now. So lets not be all depressed about it... Let me catch you up on what is going on!!

As of October 17th I am up to 51 lbs lost. I am just a little - ONE POUND - over half way to my goal. YAHOO! It has been a very hard, chocolate free, french fry free road but I FINALLY feel just this month the full affects of my diet and what exactly 51 pounds lost really means.

Stats when I started vs. Current
Pant Size: 22 vs. 16
Shirt Size: 2X vs. L
Bra Size: 42DD vs. 38D

And I have chopped off 14 - 16 total inches of my hair.

My engagement and wedding rings dont even fit anymore. I have to wear my engagement ring on my left hand index finger and my wedding ring on my right hand ring finger. My husband is like, "Guess I know what to get you for Christmas."

Which would normally be an awesome thing for a girl to hear but it kinda makes me sad. My rings arent re-sizeable. But nothing to fret over now... I want to wait until I am at my goal weight and figure out what to do about rings then.

In other news... My little Bubba started daycare about 3 weeks ago. DAYCARE! Did you hear me?! DAYCARE! Can I get a woot! woot! My husband has been staying home with her and doing online classes since I went back to work when she was 7 months old. He is currently in his last semester of school and will need to start looking for a job in his field. We knew Bubba would need to start daycare within the next couple months but quite frankly... IT WAS TIME. Why wait any longer?

She took to daycare so well. I was the one that cried all day. I was the one that called and checked up on HER and had the daycare lady asking ME if I was ok. The first morning of daycare Bubba asked me if she could take her Clifford dog and I said absolutely and she wanted a picture with her AND Clifford.

When I asked her if I could get a picture of just her... she THREW Clifford and said WHY NOT?! Stinker.

Then there was the matter of the little guy that was born a couple weeks early. My middle sister gave birth to a beautiful little boy that we got to go visit and Bubba is VERY PROUD to have a cousin. She kept referring to him as "Him in there sleeping." So I am finally an AUNTIE! YAHOO!

And last but not least... Bubba had her first fishing trip. We went with one of my girlfriends from work and had a wonderful afternoon out on the river. There wasnt a cloud in the sky and hardly any wind. Bubba thought it was the COOLEST thing ever. For some reason I didnt think to grab the camera when she kissed the fish that Girlfriend caught but I am sure that we will do it again!

I know that this has been a "quickie" of an update but I atleast wanted to let you guys know that I am still alive and that I am working on a comeback. Hopefully I will have more time now that my evenings are more freed up with the little one in daycare and asleep my 8.

I cant wait to catch up on everyone elses blogs and I thank you for stopping by and not forgetting about me!
