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
"The Hot Legs Workout." Pinner said: I did this the summer after high school, when I didn't have hours of soccer and gymnastics each day, and my legs actually looked better than they had in years!

"Loved my stomach when I did this. Doing it again! This one has 5 min instead of 4 so even better!"
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
When I was in high school, my folks had ~40 Pygmy goats and Saanens. They are so full of personality.
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.
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..

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

“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
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
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
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!!
For the kiddos
I think I was in this funk for 9 years. I think Ive finally found my weird self again. Much better to be a splash of color in this black and white world. If that makes me weird, so be it ;) Much love to all my idiosyncratic peeps! You light up my board/newsfeeds. <3 u all, even if we speak sparingly, only on passing.
"I hate the way you're always right, I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, Even worse when you make me cry I hate it when you're not around, And the fact that you didn't call But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you, Not even close, Not even a little bit, Not even at all." This is & always will be one of my favorite movie scenes ever. I bawl EVERY time!!

"Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! For all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, men of the West!" <3 <3
YOU are worth the wait but I still miss YOU like crazy!!! I hate not being with you every day!!!! I Do Love YOU so much Baby!!! Omigosh I Do!! I just am so crazy about YOU!! I really do adore YOU & ache to spend the night with you Baby!! All night..I would smile the whole night & do everything for U! Baby I want U in my arms so bad!! YOU are my dream come true!!!***

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.” - Mr. Rogers
Their love..... Its my favorite and I want it some day <3 even if you haven't read this trilogy, you have to admit that this is adorable! And even more so when you understand the meaning to it :)
