Complete Boredom!

I'm at work right now... and let me tell you it's slow! I am very thankful that I have a job, but this is really hard on me. Sitting here just watching the clock tick by and not having a person in here but me gets pretty boring. I did get the job at Weight Watchers, but I'll only be working 2 meetings a week to start out with. I'm really excited for that job because it could develop into a leader job and since I'm so passionate about WW, it only makes sense to work for them haha!

Also, we're looking at moving to a house soon. Derek and I have really nice neighbors, but we hear everything they do... We never hear the couple next door, but we ALWAYS hear the family upstairs. It's not their fault really, it's a poorly built complex. I don't want to go upstairs and tell them "Excuse me, but can you keep your 4 year old, 2 year old, you and your husband in one spot and not move so that we can feel like we don't live under someone?" It's not fair to them. Anyways, they were gone for a vacation and Derek and I felt a little spoiled with no noise... and when they got home we looked at eachother and said "lets move sooner than later". Hopefully we can break our lease without a huge fee and move into a house with at least 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a garage and a fenced in yard. I'm praying that if it's meant to be things will go smoothly. I am going to look at a house this evening that meets our criteria and I'm really excited!!!

I should get back to work... or what would really be just sitting at a desk doing nothing!

30 pounds!

(me at the 80's party)
I weighed in today and to my delight I've lost 30 pounds so far! I decided to claim this as my goal weight at Weight Watchers since my membership will be free from now on and I can still lose more weight. I'd love to lose about 13 more pounds and be the weight that my drivers license says haha! I'm so proud of myself I could just jump up and down! I joined weight watchers wanting to lose like 15 pounds and I never would've thought I'd double that... the hard work has paid off! I finally can walk around at the lake in a bikini... I may not look amazing or perfect, but I feel darn good!

It's been a while...

I am not as good of a "blogger" as my good friend Keren, but I'm trying! haha! I have been super busy these days and it has shown in this blog. The last 2 weeks has been full of moving my mom out of her old house and into the new. Also, I cleaned her house for the new owner (that sure was tiring!!!). During that time I started my new job at John L Scott. It's awfully boring, but at least it's a job and hopefully has the potential to pick up. Also, I had an interview with Weight Watchers and that is pretty promising!

It has already been a month of babies!!! My cousin Jenny had a little boy on the 1st, Matthew James Hoskinson, Derek's cousin Bekah had a baby girl on the 2nd (my sister's birthday!) Ava Evangalyn Spencer and my best friend Amy had a baby girl on the 3rd, Kathryn "Kate" Isabella Fuller! They're all so flippin' cute and sweet! Being Cancer babies I have a feeling they'll be great kids too ;] I got to see both Matthew and Kate at the hospital, but yet have been able to visit Ava since she lives in Vancouver... hopefully sooner than Christmas! Next, Keren needs to pop out little Norah ;]

Derek is going to be starting working nights next week and that'll be really weird for me... I am used to having him gone all day and home at night and I'm hoping I can sleep well and he can sleep well during the day. I'm going to have to keep Owen out of the house so that he gets some good sleep.

Also, we have a couple birthday parties to attend this weekend and one is an 80's style birthday party... check back for pictures of that one! All I can say is that Derek is planning on wearing a mesh shirt... it should be hysterical!!!!
