so me when i was a kid.. even during my renegade years i would ditch high school and spend all day in the library instead.. LOL
When I had the basement bedroom with a fake fireplace during junior high, my parents let me keep a full wading pool in my room all winter. This looks even better!
Promised myself I would post my results online to keep me motivated. So here it is. This summer (may) I was determined to look as fit as I felt. I was weighing in at 168, the worst shape and the biggest I have ever been. I told myself I would not hit 170 and to start getting my butt in gear. I started working out on my own at my school gym with @Nora Viveen and eventually found a personal trainer with my bestfriend #meganferguson. I ended up gaining weight a little bit while I was with him and realized it was too expensive to move forward when i saw no results. When July hit myself and megan thought we would try out Limitless Preformance (@limitlesspreformance kitchener ) as you probably know i am in love with this gym. We started going 3 times a week and even than I started see amazing results. I felt stronger, faster, thinner and healthier because I got excited to eat right and work out. In august when megan went off to school I started to become a regular. No matter what day I was at limitless. I felt like a family and it never felt like a chore to ever work out as hard as I did. I pushed myself and all the older guys too ;) I am currently weighing in at 148 and continuing to eat healthy and work out as much as I can. I know I'm not the skinniest but that wasn't my goal. I am proud of myself and my results. Thank you to everyone who supported me, pushed me, and didn't believe in me
thinspo and remember before

"You spend years wishing your parents would get off your back, only to realize they're the only ones who ever really had your back." So incredibly true for me!! My mom is the only person I really trust.
ASL....we totally had a chart like this in elementary school..so when I decided not to pay attention to the teacher I would study the chart lol :)

I want to remember this so I can tell my daughter this when she is in high school
"Loved my stomach when I did this. Doing it again! This one has 5 min instead of 4 so even better!"
Top Ten Teacher Time-Savers...Pinner says imagine leaving school while it is still light outside...it can happen. Since I had children of my own, I had to figure out some ways to organize my classroom so I am no longer spending hours upon hours after school preparing lesson plans, making copies, grading, and even cleaning up. This post is my favorite ten tips to keeping a classroom organized so teachers can actually spend some time during the school week outside of their classroom :)
Say this all the time. When my kids were younger....they would reply "YES!" then I would say "with soap?" The answer would always be obvious when they would turn around and walk back to the bathroom! LOL!
something to talk about
short ombre---I-love this!! Hmmm wonder if my hairstylist would even consider letting me do this????? Lol?!?! Or if I would have the guts to wack off my LONG hair???
Makeup and Hair
So true. If you told me that I would be running miles when I was recovering from back surgery I would have laughed and told you that you had me confused with somebody else. I cry at some point during each run because my legs hurt. Not because the pain is there, but because I can feel it and it reminds me how incredibly lucky I am.
OMG.. this just made me laugh. I am the MAKER of to do lists. Like every day. This tattoo would so fit me, but, um... NO. lol.
When I was in high school, my folks had ~40 Pygmy goats and Saanens. They are so full of personality.
So precious! I always want to wake a sleeping baby and then when they are awake I realize my mistake. LOL! - me too
my little nest
OH MY GAWD!! I think M. would kill me, but this is so awesome! Just thinking about the look on his face when he comes home and finds a pink (or something along those lines) washing machine in the bathroom instead of this boring white one..
words of wisdom.
All it took was my hairdresser to smooth a drop of this onto my hair to send me straight to the counter to buy some (even when I had a full

Are you kidding me. If this was my kid I would be saying, "Put that thing back where it came from or so help me!"
paper clip hanger for doll's clothes I would have loves this idea for all my Barbie clothes when I was a kid!
It would be so cool to have this mousepad at work with my favorite quote on it ... I'd pick a quote that would inspire me all day long!
Home is where the Heart is
Please excuse me. I haven't been back to Athens, OH in years so I must binge eat all of my favorite foods. #OUHC2013.
And now, eyelashes for people like me who wonder how any woman has ever been able to do this! I've been SO frustrated with trying to put fake lashes on that I didn't even try on my WEDDING DAY. lol! Kiss Premium False Eyelashes with Application Strings
“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World <3
Lol. I wonder who'd be willing to hold my dress when I pee, since, well, I don't really have a "girl friend". Anyway there's so much time ahead of me, there's like 10 more years before I get married. I hope I find my girl best friend soon. :)
I LOVE THIS IDEA! Boys room:I hope they call me on a mission (would use map of world instead) positive reinforcement!!! You could even mark where their dad and all of their uncles went.
When my Daughter was younger all her friends called me the Napkin Lady. Each day in her lunch, I'd draw a picture, poem or just a little love note, and include a little goodie. It got to the point all her friends were asking me to also send them notes, even the boys. I had several that I'd include, once a week, I guess they loved the extra attention. When I saw this Pin, it reminded me of it... <3
Had the scariest experience as a mother tonight. When I think of all the what it's, I am so grateful my kids are home safe with me! They are my world and I love them with all of my heart!!
