Losing the weight one Jazz step at a time

Before Pregnancy (GOAL) 135lbs

Pregnant 171 lbs

Now 148 lbs
So back in the day, high school senior year 2004, I started weight watchers and walking 3 to 5 times a week. I went from 165 lbs to 135 lbs (see picture up top). That was a huge success for myself and was a time where I had so much self confidance. Now I am trying to do it again after having Anya. I know I can do it but i forgot how slow the process is. It's also hard living with my in-laws where the food I don't need to eat is everywhere. Tempting me with every cabinet door I open. Although with weight watchers I can eat whatever I want just in moderation. Wes' mom has a tredmill which I have been getting on here and there but not nearly as often as I need to. It's also not easy with a teething 2 1/2 month old crying for your attention 24/7. So I am joining JAZZERCISE Monday. I did it a few years ago and loved it. It's just hard to fork over the 35 dollars/month. It's good because they have evening classes where Wes can watch Anya while I go. Doing dance is so much more fun than walking on a tredmill staring at a wall. Just pray I can afford the 35/month. I will update my progress on here as well. Maybe that will motivate me to try harder. Hope all is well with you all. 135 lbs here I come!

Tybee Island - The Last Song

Ok, so this movie I have to go see. It was filmed at Tybee Island here in Georgia about 20 min out from Savannah. I have been going to Tybee Beach for years now. I absolutley love it. It's a small quiet beach, not a spring break destination which I love. I got engaged on Tybee Beach so it holds a special place in my heart. If you're a traveler, please visit here. It's a beautiful quiet beach and it's fun to go visit historic Savannah for a day and walk on River Street. There is so much history and beauty, it would be a shame if you never visited! The spanish moss trees, did i mention the trees??! B-E-A-UTIFUL! Miley Cyrus is also a pretty good actress and Id like to see her out of her Hannah Montana role. Looks good, I'll blog about it when I see it! Going back to tybee this August hopefully! You should go visit sometime! Cumberland Island too, but that's a whole other blog!

Had a sale today! I have come to the conclusion that zombies are very popular on etsy. My husband is obsessed with zombies and I decided to give it a try and make a children's zombie ice pack. I made it a little more kid friendly of course, I would have liked to have made it more "zombieish" with brains coming out and an eyeball falling out of its socket, but I figured parents wouldnt want to buy a grosse ice pack for their child. I think little boys would love a really grosse looking zombie, but they're not buying, their parents are! What do you all think? I have many more to make but right now I'm focusing on making guitar pick earrings. I'm stocking up for the craft show I'm doing in September. My guitar pick earrings were almost sold out and it was rained out the first day! So I'm hoping for a good turnout again. I'm also hoping these ice packs sell well. They will be shown for the first time this September. If not, they sure are fun to make!

Happy Crafting everyone!

Anya is my 2 month old baby girl whom I love to bits. I'm thinking she might be teething but I'm not quite sure. I'm about 85% positive she is. She's drooling a lot now and sucking on her fist. Yesterday his mom informed me that with all three of her kids they would get a fever and vomit. Guess what happens this morning? Not only did the dog vomit all over the place (bless her heart I taught her to do it outside and she tried her hardest to make it), Anya also vomited on me and herself. So it's been an eventful morning to say the least. Not only is she drooling, sucking and vomiting.... she cries, oh lord does she cry! Last night she cried so hard I felt so bad for her.
Wes has helped me out a lot. We have an agreement where he stays up with her late while I go to bed early and I get up with her at night. She was doing well with sleeping through the night but ever since she got her shots she's reverted back to getting up at 3:30am and 5 or 6am. It's not bad though, she's pretty good about going back to sleep.
I just hope I'm right about teething and it's not something else. Oh well, I love her, teething and all!

My First Blog

Well, here goes nothin'! Let me just say now that my thoughts are not organized whatsoever. So try and follow me the best you can. I am 24 years old with a new baby girl Anya. I am married to my amazing husband Wes who just recently got out of the army. God has truly answered prayers and gave us an amazing gift...Anya. Though I have had a lot of sleepless nights, to see her smile makes it all worth it. I love seeing my husband play with her. Seeing Wes as a daddy is so amazingly wonderful I cannot describe it. As of right now we are in transition living with his parents which can be crazy at times, but it's alright because we all get along really well. It's so nice to have my inlaws help out with Anya. Wes just started back at school to get into criminal justice. I'm so proud of him! What we want to do is get all our bills paid off and buy or build a house in the country somewhere. We gotta get out of Fayetteville. I have been staying at home which I love, but understand I have to go back to work here soon if we wanna get outta here. I got a gig working on weekends so that should help out a little bit.

I am an artist and crafter. I am addicted to craft shows now. I make heating pads, children's boo boo ice packs, and guitar pick earrings. My main thing is drawing and painting. My heating pads and children's boo boo packs are sold here > and my guitar pick earrings are here >
