Birthday and Easter

Well, my laptop's motherboard has died. :(

So basically I need a new laptop, but probably won't be getting one for another few weeks.

It's ok, though. I can just get on my mom's computer sometimes or Tony's.

I just wanted to say HAPPY EASTER!

And that my stepsister's 18th birthday was yesterday and I cannot believe that she is already 18! Our parents got married when she was 4 and I was 8!

So I've basically known her all of her life!

She's my best friend and I honestly don't know what I'd do without her, or where I'd be.

I tell her everything and she tells me everything.

Since I'm on my mom's computer I don't have a picture of her and I on here, but we've had thousands of pictures taken together and I love it!

She's graduating high school next month and I know there are going to be lots of tears shed on my part.

Happy Birthday lil' sis. I love you with all my being.

So I'm on my mom's desktop computer because my laptop won't turn on!! It's fully charged and everything!

I'm so frusturated.

I pulled out the battery and I don't think it's the battery.So tomorrow I'm going to go get it checked out and see if it's fixable.

If not, gotta get a new laptop!


I'll post ASAP.

Have a great weekend!!!

Y'all, I am SO happy it's Friday!

This week actually went by pretty fast, which is good!

Today I finished up the 2nd week of the Couch-to-5k  and so far so good!

Tonight we are supposed to get thunderstorms and Tony and I are just going to make a pizza and relax and watch a movie or some TV.

One thing y'all might now know about me (or do you) is that I love thunderstorms!

I get it from my mom - she loves them too, which then made me love them as I was growing up.

Tomorrow I'm going to be having a GDO (girls day out) with Mary (my best friend.

We're going to get sushi (eeeek! I've been craving it for months now) and then we're going to head to the college that we will be going to in the fall because she wants to check some things out there.

We're also going to go to the apartments that we will be moving into this summer, because she has to turn in her application.

Tomorrow night Tony and I are going to take out his parents because on Monday it's his dad's birthday!

Sunday I have a ton of studying to do because my first final is on April 26th!!! SO close!

I can't wait for this semester to be over and to have a little break this semester (even though I do have to study for the TEAS test that I will be taking on July 29th).

My last final is May 9th and then I'm DONE.DONE.DONE for over 3 months!

Oh, and my 22nd birthday is May 8th, just in case you wanna get me somethin'. ;)

Have a GREAT weekend, y'all! :)

I have amazing news!

So, my best friend, Mary, and I were going to get a 4 bedroom 4 bathroom apartment on campus for $585 and we would be moving in August 14th.

Well, the day to start picking apartments and rooms started on Monday, and since I will be transferring to this college from another one (Mary, too) we weren't able to get first dibs in rooms. Freshman got to have the first pick.

So basically, there were no available rooms for Mary and I. I mean, there were, but not for both of us to be living in the same apartment! And that's what we really want.

So we talked it over with our dad's and we are going to be getting our own 2 bedroom 2 bathroom off campus apartment!!

We've already taken a tour and it's beautiful. And get this...it's CHEAPER than the on campus apartments would have been!

It will be around $540 a month (sometimes higher sometimes lower) which is cheaper than $585 on campus!

So, we are pretty much stoked. We are going to have our own apartment with our own stuff.

Another plus is that these apartments are 2.5 miles away from school!

The luxury of having an on campus apartment would have been that we were ON campus.

But since we can't do that, at least these off campus apartments are only 2.5 miles away!


Another plus is that I get the master bedroom!

Ah ha!

Mary and I already talked about it and she seriously doesn't care if I take it or not.

So I made sure she didn't want it, and now it's mine! :)

Tomorrow I'm dropping off my application and application fee.

It's all starting to feel so real.

I will be 45 minutes away from Tony, which is gonna suck.

But we've done that before!

He used to live 45 mins away from me (like 2 minutes away from these apartments!).

Now he lives 5 mins away from me.


We don't have an exact date yet, but they will probably let us know in about a month what our moving date will be!

Although Mary and I are going to have our own apartment, we aren't paying for it. Which kind of isn't really OUR apartment.

Our dad's are paying for it. And no, we're not spoiled rich girls. HAHA!

My dad has the money to pay for it, and he said as long as I study hard and get good grades, then he'll continue to pay for the apartment and food/gas.

Although, I might get a part time job out there, just so I can have money for fun stuff!

Eek! SO excited.

Once I move in, I'll definitely be taking pictures.

Although we don't have the date yet, we told them that we wanted to move in at the end of July, early August since school starts August 17th and we want to be able to be settled before it starts.

I cannot wait to live with my best friend.

We are going to have the time of our lives!


Have a great Friday!!!!

Question - Couch-to-5k

So today is my last day of week 1 of the couch-to-5k program!

So far, it's been easy.

I break a sweat, but I'm not really out of breath when I'm done with the workout.

For all of you fellow couch-to-5ker's, is it supposed to be this easy the first week?

I have heard that it might be easy the first week, but to just keep going and not rush it.

Let me know if it was as easy for you as it has been for me and if it's supposed to be like this!

Top 2 Songs

The top 2 songs that I'm loving right now are:

Nire Alldai - STFU (Shutup and Party) I used the censored version!

Rihanna & Jennifer Nettles - California King Bed

I've pretty much been listening to this song alll day! Love it!

Couch-to-5K & Tuesdays

Yesterday I started the Couch-to-5k program!

It says to do it 3 days a week, so I'm going to do it Mon, Wed, and Friday each week.

I'm pumped about it!

It's Tuesday, y'all.

Tuesdays aren't my favorite day of the week.

I can stand Mondays, but Tuesdays just suck.

The only reason is because I have Chem lab at 7PM.

I hate having class at 7PM, especially Chem lab!

Oh well. In 3 weeks is my final and then I'm DONE with Chemistry for good!

I can't believe how quick this semester is going.

Wasn't it just January?

My last final is May 9th, which is basically 5 weeks away! Eek!

I'm not taking a class this summer (thank God..I think it's the first time in 3 years that I haven't taken a summer class) but I am going to be studying all summer for the TEAS test to get into nursing school which I take on July 29th!

So I will be able to study for that for a couple months.

Well, I'm off to workout!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!! :o)

Getting to know YOU Sunday!

1. do you weigh yourself?
I do. I like to know where I'm at and if my weight happens to be up a lb or 2 one week, then I'll know for the next week to exercise more or cut back on certain foods. Since I reached my goal today, of course I was weighing myself while I was losing weight to see how much I lost.

2. what's the nastiest thing you've ever eaten?
Hmm..I really cannot think of anything that was really nasty.

3. snail mail or email?
I love snail mail! Too bad I don't get it anymore.

4. do you have any irrational fears...what are they?
Spiders! Blek!

5. do you play an instrument?

6. would you rather be bitten by a snake or attacked by a bear?
Biten by a snake, I guess.

7. do you ever go braless in public?
No way.

8. today i am thankful for........................?
Being healthy!

FINAL Weigh-In

Today is an important day because I got to weigh myself for HOPEFULLY the final time!

I ate all the right things this week and I worked out every day.

When I stepped on the scale, it read that I lost EXACTLY 2.2 lbs!!

And that's what I needed to lose this week to get to my goal!!

So, ladies, I have reached my goal of losing 20 lbs!

I've very excited and very happy.

I lost 20 lbs in 12 weeks and my average weight loss a week was 1.7 lbs which I think is excellent.

This week I'm going to be slowly adding the carbs back in and I'm still going to be eating healthy foods. I can't go back to the way I was eating before.

I also think I'm going to start the Couch-to-5K this week!

I'll keep you updated on that also! :)

Some of you asked for some before and after photos, so here goes nothing!

This is me before I started losing any weight at all. This was the summer of '08 and I'm the 2nd from the left, obviously. Ugh. Seeing myself like that makes me disgusted. I can't believe I got that big. I was 60 lbs heavier!

Before I lost 20 lbs: 
I'm obviously more tan than the after picture. This picture was taken in Novemeber but between Novemeber and when I started losing weight, I maintained the same weight, so that's why I added this picture

After losing 20 lbs:

I'm so happy that I'm done, even though I still want to lose 5-10 more before August (am I weird?)

I also want to say thanks for all my readers for all of your support!!

You really motivated me throughout this process! :)

Have a GREAT Sunday! I know I will! ;)

Random Tidbits

  • Sorry that I've been MIA this week. School has been cra-zay!
  • My grandparents are coming in town tonight! I'm very close with them and haven't seen them since Thanksgiving, so I'm super excited to see them!
  • Speaking of my amazing g-rents, they make the best food ever and I'm very excited to eat their amazing goodness on Sunday! :o)
  • Saturday Night Live will always be hilarious.
  • I just learned earlier today that Will Farrell is going to be replacing Steve Carell on The Office! I don't think I've ever been so happy. Will is one of my favorite actors!
  • I realllly hope that this week I get to my goal weight! I'll be pretty disappointed if I don't.
  • I'm moving in with my best friend (and 2 random girls..eek!) in 4 1/2 months and I honestly really don't think I've been this excited about something before. People keep telling me not to live iwth your best friend because it could ruin the relationship, but I honestly don't think that will happen. Have any of you moved in with your best friend before? How did it go?
  • I have been craving sushi like a mad woman lately and next weekend I swear I'm going to get me some.
  • Tony keeps calling me "skinny minnie" and I like it.
  • Even though I've lost almost 20 lbs, I stil want to lose 5-10 more in the summer before the Fall semester starts. Am I crazy?
  • I honestly don't think I can go a day without sugar.
