My Anniversary Present

Holy Cow!!!! You could have knocked me over with a feather when Barry gave me my gift. Barry asked me to come outside so he could give me my anniversary gift. I was thinking it was kettle balls or bicycle accessories. So I'm in the garage looking for something that resembles a gift. Barry is asking me is I see it or not - uh - no! but where's my bike. He tells me he put it away since it was in his way. Ok no bike accessories then.

He asks me to walk down the road a little and maybe I can see it from a different angle (I'm still totally clueless at this point). As we're walking down the road he asks if I can see it yet. "What, did you get me a car" was my smart a$$ reply and he hands me a key to this:

I was stunned, speechless. Unbelievable. It's taken me 11 years to appreciate the romantic side of my husband.

I love you Baby!!!! Thanks for the car, it's a blast!

Happy 11th Wedding Anniversary Honey!

This post is dedicated to my wonderful husband of 11 years.


Thanks for putting up with me all these years. It would have been so much easier to run away screaming. Thanks for dealing with Ali and Andrew (and continuing to do so). Thanks for making the decision to home school Brandon. At the time I thought it was ridiculous but it really was the best decision for him.

Thanks for dealing with all of my insecurities and self esteem issues. Thanks for always telling me I'm beautiful, even first thing in the morning before I've brushed my teeth. Thanks for your encouragement, there have been so many times I've thought a task impossible but have gotten through it because of your support. Thanks for riding your bike with me the first time I commuted to work. I would have never done it without your presence that day. Thanks for meeting me at the end of the day to give me company on the ride home.

Thanks for working through all the BS that comes up day to day, Lord knows there's a lot of it. Thanks for repairing my car, thanks for taking care of the house maintenance, thanks for re-modeling the house (that's turned into a major pain in the you-know-what but it looks great).

Often times it seems like I don't appreciate all you do for me, I apologize for that. I get so busy and introverted that I don't recognize when I'm taking you for granted or the things you do. Please forgive me and know that I will try much harder to show you my appreciation.

I love you so very much and am committed to making our marriage last ‘til death do us part. There will be times when we’re not getting along that well. There will be times when illnesses get in the way. There will be times that we are low on money. There will be trials. That's part of life and God’s plan. We've made it through some hard times as well as wonderful times. I love you for your perseverence. Thanks for loving me.

Always - Your faithful, loving wife!

I WON!!!!!

I can't believe I won a membership to The Red Carpet Ready Club PLATINUM Coaching Group. How cool is that? All of these beautiful, wonderful women submitted their stories to Val and she picked me. That's better than winning a beauty pageant and the benefits will surely last longer.

I woke up and immediately turned on the computer to see if the winner was listed yet. When I saw my name I started whopping and shouting, running through the house and giving high fives to my family, granted they were all still in bed and thought I'd lost my mind. Barry knew I was doing a video for "something that may have mentioned Jennifer Garner" but really had no idea what. I didn't spend alot of time explaining it to him since the chances of me getting picked were slightly better than winning the lottery. Maybe I need to go buy a couple of tickets :)

Well now that I have won I'm ready to follow through with my commitment to be the Red Carpet Ready poster mom / spokes person / success story for a non-celebrity person.

I'm hoping I'll be back from Vegas when the coaching sessions start but it will be cutting it close. I'm in Vegas for work from the 21st returning on the 24th. I've already told my boss that I absolutely need to go to a grocery store to pick up water and food, now I need to get a fridge in the room and I'm all set. Luckily I'm not a big drinker so that won't be a challenge to overcome. We're all staying at Treasure Island and they have a gym available for $20 a day. Small complaint here; Why do hotels charge guests to use the on-site gyms? I think it STINKS. Like they aren't getting enough money through the casinos grrrrrrr!

Anyway - check out the Red Carpet Ready Club - Platinum and Gold

It’s coming..

Anxiously awaiting...

The annoucement of the Red Carpet Ready Club scholarship winner. I have been pacing since 5:30 PST (about an hour now). I've put about 3000 paces on my pedometer and I've refreshed th RCR site more times than I can count.

I don't envy the decision that Valerie Water's is making. All of the stories and videos are wonderful, the ladies are sincere and all want to see positive changes to their bodies. No one seemed more deserving than anyone else. We all have our stories, and while some may be similar in age or activity or history, each is uniquely their own.

Good luck RCR hopefuls and Good Luck Val in choosing.

I love Bloggers

I'm having so much fun going through the blogging universe and meeting new people as well as finding old friends.

I love to list my favorite bloggers in my Blog List but that doesn't begin cover it. I would hate to add up all the hours I spend on blogs. Who needs to work right???

I want to send a special thanks to Well Behaved Krissy - I won her Lancome give-a-way. Thanks Krissy!!!! (she's an old BFL Mommy buddy and the best person to swap me across the head when I need it, and trust me there are times I really need it lol)
