My New Favorite...

HOBBY is...updating this blog!!!

Yep, that's right...this is almost as fun as scrapbooking and the best thing, I don't make a mess!

Brent is always telling me to get a hobby, but what he doesn't understand is that I don't have the time, nor the energy, to do the things I love to do. I love to scrapbook, but when do I have the time (or the enormous amount of money) to do it?? I love to workout, but besides gaining weight, I haven't managed to find a "good time" to go to the gym (ok, I am trying to take care of this one). I love to read, but typically, that only happens when I actually get to take a hot bath (and then I usually fall asleep). So, this is my new hobby!!!! Yeah!!!

I have no one, but my friend Kim to thank for this. Quick story: Kim and I knew each other through Gayfer's Teenboard (if you don't know what that is, don't ask!!!!). She was this amazingly sweet and funny person that somehow, I managed to lose contact with over the years. Fortunately, Facebook brought us back together when she found me. And I am so thankful for this! She now lives across the country in California (so very jealous about this), of which, I am determined to visit as some point (I digress). She created a blog for her family and guess what, I totally stole her idea...not only was she not mad that I totally copied her idea, but she added our blog to her site. So THANK YOU Kim for inspiring me to find a new creative outlet!!!!! Maybe now, I'll stop coming up with new ways for Brent to be creative around our house (NOT!!!)

Anyway, I've changed backgrounds...and will probably do this everytime I feel the need to be creative! As you can see, I originally said I would only update this on Wednesday's and it's only Friday night, so my new hobby is totally taking over!

Creative outlet here I am, but sorry to say, we are still redoing our bedroom, totally landscaping the backyard and the list goes on...

And oh, as for that working out thing, under to go to bed, so I can go to my first aerobics class in the morning -- JUST WEIGHTS. I am so excited...goodbye extra pounds!

Truly Blessed on this Friday evening!
