♥ Bloggers Biggest Loser Week 3 ♥

Blogger's Biggest Loser

So if you missed my post last link up about my cool Ninja I’ve been using, you can view it here and all the pretty pictures I added.

I’ve been doing well with this. The last and only time I stuck to a strict weight loss plan was for my wedding to get into shape since I had just had a baby. I wanted a great body to look back on and I got it. Then I gained it all back. So my goal is to keep up and be motivated. So I know I can do it once again!

From the last time I linked up, it was this:

And now today it is this:

And the thing I find amazing with this is that I haven’t been to the gym at all. I have been wanting to go but haven’t yet. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not sue to laziness. I’m very motivated and love the gym. Just their child care hours suck and are not job-friendly. We are looking into another gym after this membership is up. One a bit closer and better hours. The only exercise I have been getting is from sex. Ok, maybe a little TMI but it’s true. It burns lots of calories.

So here is how I have been losing weight:

I have officially tomorrow been junk free for 30 days!

  1. I have not had any soda what so ever
  2. I have not had any caffeine what so ever
  3. I have not had any fast food
  4. I have not had sugar {I did sneak 3 cookies. That is it}
  5. Have only drank homemade juice only and water
  6. Been eating majority of fruits and veggies only. A few times a week some lean ground beef.


But I’m now on MyFitnessPal! I’ve done really good keeping up on here with tracking things. It’s pretty fun actually. Anyone else that has this should add me if they wish. Click the button below to become my friend :0)


I’m feeling great too. The headaches have stopped. The heaviness as well. I’m starting to feel lighter although I still don’t really feel a change in any of my clothes feeling looser on me. I think once I get around the 20 pound mark, I’ll really start to notice.

I have stayed under my calorie count everyday {except one day} and I noticed my stomach has become trained now for smaller meals. I get full faster and it knows not to beg for junk food.

So that’s about it. I think I’m doing good and motivating myself.

So for my first piece, I had to start with Little Shop Of Horrors because I was in this musical in 10th grade & had the solo part of playing the part of Ms. Luce! Yup, I can sing and act.It was hard finding the actual Broadway people singing so I had to take form the movies instead. But they are still in the plays.

★ Shit I Hate Sunday ★

Oh happy day! The bitching is back and I'm so glad! One of the things I do best is bitch and complain. What can I say? Now shall we get on to it?

Shit I Hate.....Those people who tag you in photos on Facebook saying "Please vote for my child for such & such contest". Seriously? Bitch, if I wanted to vote for your kid to look weird, I would have already. Don't need to tag me in this shit and post it all over my wall. Geez...

Shit I Hate.....Those other people on Facebook who say "Yea, I own five purses and four of them are Coach. I'm pathetic and need to shop more." Ugghhhh.....Now, while I am a Coach WHORE! I love Coach bags, I do own one myself, please don't throw out either how much money you have by saying you need to buy more over priced purses. And two, don't make it sound like people should feel sorry for you about only owning four. Geez...

Shit I Hate.....That it's Sunday. You know why? Because that means I have to go back to work tomorrow with a few retarded assholes. Yup, I love my job, but the people....well....there are only about 2 I can think of that are cool.

Shit I Hate.....*a bit on the really personal side* When I get so depressed thinking I can't make my husband happy. I cry and feel like total shit and a failure and I hate that. Why am I beating myself up for it? It gets to me and gets to me hard. And from what he says, it's all in my head. I'm really not as much as a fuck up as I think I am. But I still can't help get in that slump most days.

Shit I Hate.....You know, it has been two and a half years since we have had more then 15 mins alone together {the husband & I}? I really hate that shit. A fucking date night would be the best. Especially with the way I have been feeling lately. Too bad we don't believe in babysitters. That bites me in the ass most of the time.

Shit I Hate.....Stupid stupid stupid people. I cannot stress this enough. Some people are so ignorant or so closed-minded or mis-informed. I just want to shake them upside down and beat them. At least beat some sense into them.

Shit I Hate.....Still haven't been able to get that new iPhone case I wanted. Can't wait for a bit of extra cash to buy something for me!

Shit I Hate.....That taxes seem so long to get here. I want my money now dammit. I'm broke. I need money! Give me my money. That is all

So, have something you want to bitch about? Link it up with Rockin' Mama by clicking on the button at the top. You'll feel a lot better if you did!

Yup, what he said, Ha!

♥ Let Love Get You This Valentine’s Day ♥

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store
What can I say? I am a sucker when it comes to romance, hearts, candy, cute little teddy bears and all that mushy stuff that Valentine’s Day is all about. And want to know why? Because my husband and I love being creative. It is so fun to step out of your element in the bedroom and really spice things up.
So of course, if you love that too, then I totally suggest EdenFantasys. Not only do they have things for people who love a little spice, but also for those who take it all the way! I’m talking that crazy kind of love when you wake up in the morning and you can’t stop thinking about it all day and your hair won’t fall back into place.
Everyone loves feeling loved. You can’t tell me you don’t. There’s something magic about when two people have that connection and you just know you can't stop it. So with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not spice things up for your man with some cute and sexy lingerie? Or take it further with some sexy costumes! Seriously, what guy can resist that?
Here are some of my favorites that are perfect to get some attention in the bedroom. And the price, seriously, is awesome!

So tell me, how are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? A little of this and a little of that will keep a marriage young, sexy, happy and fun!

But the best part is that the cute outfits come in all sizes. So everyone can look hot and spicy this Valentine’s Day.
And another little trick to make your man happy: Pull out the webcam and put on your lingerie or costume and either pre-record a video for his eyes only to view. Send it to his email or text it to him on his phone. Or have him sit on a computer in one room and you in the other with another computer. Both of you on the webcam together while he is watching your sexy self. Just like you’re not his wife. Guys love this. The great part is with such sexy lingerie, you won’t even have to do much to get him to be all over you. I guarantee it!!

Oh Happy Day!


♥ Internet Explorer Hates My Blog ♥

So today, it had been brought to my attention that when a friend was trying to view my blog, she said buttons were all over the place. I couldn’t understand what she was talking about.

Then she sent me a screen shot and we figured it out.


This is how it’s supposed to look.

It seems to work right when using Google Chrome or Firefox:

Chrome_FF look

Now this is how it looks using the evil Internet Explorer:

IE look

See how the widget is over the photos? I didn’t understand how to fix this and still don’t.

So if you are viewing it in Internet Explorer, I apologize. I am actually not sure if people even use that browser anymore. I didn’t think it was even still around.

So now I’m curious how many bloggers use which one. I know I have asked this in the past but now I’m even more curious then ever

♥ The Three Year Mark ♥

Can you believe it? We finally hit the third year mark today.

Today is our three year wedding anniversary!


It’s a big deal because our relationship has been through so much. I think a lot more then most people I know. So it’s quite an accomplishment we have been able to get through everything that has been the ups and downs of being a couple.

The background on us {if you were interested}

We met in 2001 my freshman year of college. And that same night felt that connection that even when we tried to break things off, it never worked. We have been attracted so hard ever since. That means we have now be together for over 10 years. Man, time flies.

But at this three year mark in our lives, we are both happy and loving our life together. We have a beautiful daughter and hoping that one day soon, our family will grow more.

Our wedding was held on January 24th, 2009 in Orlando, Florida at Leu Gardens which was amazing and beautiful. It was like we had the entire place to ourselves that day wandering the gardens taking photos.

The weather was perfect wedding weather. 70 degrees and warm and sunny. The ceremony started at 2:00pm and the reception began at 5:45pm

I wore a stunning Maggie Sottero gown that I had a custom-made Marie Antoinette style bustle in the back.

We had a smaller wedding and it still seemed wonderful. Only our family and closest friends were invited. I handmade almost everything I could to make it more fun and personal. Things I either did not have time to make or didn’t know how, I bought off Etsy. Our colors were black & ivory {no accent color} and our theme was monogram [RHR}.

Things all seemed to go in order that day. My dad walked me down the aisle as our friend & musician played on guitar Bryan Adams {Everything I Do, I Do It For You}. The one song I always knew I would have played at my wedding.

So I’m making this a photo party and adding some photos from that day! Enjoy!! It’s like photo vomit right now. You have been warned!


So here’s to many more happy years together!
