Oh the Ball...

Ah the joys of an upcoming ball. I have to admit, all the ball "talk" annoys me. I dont know why, because I love going to the ball. So Im going to humor myself. I was REALLY crazy and bought my ball gown online this year. I ordered it last week hoping it will come in time. It's pretty risky too. Not risky in a ronchy way. You know...that girl at the ball who's dress is right below her ass cheeks, has on way too much hooker style makeup and heels so high she cant walk in them??? Yeah, not that kind of risky. Risky as in, I BETTER lose this damn weight before the ball because I wont be able to pull it off!! What does your dress look like?? Have you gotten one yet?
Which shouldnt be too hard to do considering this boot camp is a NIGHTMARE! In a good way of course. This morning we were to meet at the beach instead of our usual concrete slab spot. So I was nervous. Last week I suffered from some pretty bad shin splints and left limping all 3 days. So today we were running with sand bags on our shoulders. Doing burpees across the sand and literally sling shotting each other with rubber bands through the sand. It was KILLER. 5 more weeks left, lets see if I live to talk about it.

I was having sort of an off day (not a good weigh in) until I came across this picture from last week. It instantly made me smile. Whats better than sitting on a beach with your gorgeous husband?? AAhhh the simple things.

Welcome Baby!!!

It's almost Friday!!! We are a day ahead of all of you (Thursday 2030 as I type this). I am dying for Friday! Friday means my weigh in at boot camp. Ive followed my healthy eating plan to the T this week and am super proud of myself. It was super tough for me, cause I love food!! But I know I am totally going to get my ass kicked during the workout. Yesterday we did boxing and it was awesome. I am incredibly sore though, which is great. I am SOOO happy I have friends in the boot camp with me. Without them, I dont think I would make it. Also tomorrow night I am going to a gold Canyon Candle Party, woohoo. I am not a Scentsy Fan (Let the comments roll) Sorry guys. It will be my first time really being temped by all kinds of naughty list foods. We'll see how that goes. I am making my BFF's famous truffles and I promise to only eat one!

On another note, I have a Dragon Boat race this Sunday. We have some new team members and they have REALLY helped out team out. I am totally stoked and I know we are going to win this race. Go Ryukyu Crazy Girls!! (Look us up on FB!)

Finally, our friends' baby was born yesterday! We went to the hospital to visit today and their new baby boy (after having 4 girls) is soooooooooo stinkin cute. I love him to death already. He was born in a Japanese hospital so it was really neat to see the dfference from the Naval Hospital on base. Everything is pretty similar, except the security. You can just walk right in and snatch up a baby if you wanted to. Hubs made me leave my giant purse in the car for that reason. ;) I was a teeeeeeeeeeeeenie bit sad though. I feel like we're never going to get a baby :( I am sounding like a Debbie Downer, I know.

Here is a pic of the super little guy in my arms. Welcome to the world little guy!!

Cant Keep Up

I like having a full plate. Ive never been one to sit around and do nothing. But for the past couple of months, my plate seems to be over flowing. You know, like when you load your plate with mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving and stuff just starts falling off? Maybe it's just me that does that...ANYWAY!

Things are great here with us. Big Sis is kicking butt in Karate and prancing around in Ballet. She is loving school, making lots of new friends. She rides the bus to school and I think thats her favorite part since she doesnt sit in her carseat on the bus. Lil Sis hangs with me during the day. We start by going to the gym every morning so she gets to play with friends while I work out. I started a Boot Camp program. It's 8 weeks of kick your ass workouts. All outdoors, which is crazy considering its like 90-100 everyday still. Im on week 2 and every part of my body is sore. WHich is good because I already ordered my ball gown, and lets just say it'

We are looking at some huge life decisions coming up in the near future and I hope to be able to share them with you all. Im excited and nervous and anxious and every other emotion about it all!

Anyhoo, I am going to REALLY try to blog more. I know Ive said that a million times. But this time for real! I know a lot of friends and family have been asking about it. I do have a few pics I will leave you with!! I hope you all are doing great!!

80's night for a friends birthday!
