White Halloween??

Hmmm...doesn't sound right, does it?!  Last week our weather forecast was predicting a winter storm warning.  Friday at work, my patients said we're expected to get about 8 inches to a foot.  Yeah right, not in October.  Well, at my house I got at least 6 inches.  This is suppose to happen in the Winter months.  At least we had power, but no cable.  So I got to catch up on some cleaning, laundry, and some movies.  Here are a couple photos I took this morning.

Blissful Day

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my sister and my niece.  It was a really nice day.  We talked and hung out, something that we haven't done in a long time.  I got to hold Grace almost all day, minus the feedings of course.  I even got to rock her to sleep.  I was amazed just watching her for hours and how she slept.  She would just have these random moments of smiling and "talking" in her sleep.  I loved every moment of it and can't wait until it's my turn.

Although yesterday was mostly wonderful and peaceful, I did have small moments of sadness.  That was only after my sister asked me about having children.  The thoughts of what if this is never me, why can't we conceive like a normal couple, why do I have to spend over $10,000 to have a child.  I have arrived in that part of my journey where I am comfortable talking about IF, but I still have these little bouts of sadness come over me.  However it didn't last long.  My sister was great about it.  She wanted to know what was going on and everything.

I just can't wait to have another day like yesterday....minus the sadness.

Song of the Week

I have been horrible at this post, but in my defense I have been quite busy the past couple of Saturdays and I haven't really had much time sit and do this.  So I have 2 songs picked:  Maroon 5: Moves Like Jagger and Kopek: Bring it on Home.  No real reason for either one of them.  The new Maroon 5 song is very catchy I must say.

Another Milestone Reached..

Today I turn 30.  I don't know why, but it just depresses me.  Well one reason is that I'm not a mother least not to a human child.  Another reason may be because I do not feel accomplished.  Yeah I have a degree and a full time job; however, it is not in my field.  Looking back on my life, I feel I could have accomplished more and been more.  I'm not sure what it is about 30, but it is making me reflect and it sucks.  I usually don't do anything special for my birthday anymore, not since 21.  Today J and I are going to my co-workers wedding and that should be about it.  Last night I got a dinner at the Olive Garden, I haven't been there literally in years.  That has been the extent of my birthdays the last 5 years with some shopping.  Hopefully I'll snap out of this funk and enjoy the day.

Song of the Week

I completely forgot about this post last week.  This week is Brick by Boring Brick by Paramore.  This song was picked because I feel like I live in my own fairy tale.  I daydream about certain things and I have to keep myself grounded or I'll get lost.

I'm An Aunt!

My sister went into labor yesterday and  my niece, Grace Marie, has made her entrance into the world this morning.  My sister sent me a picture text of her and she is gorgeous.  I called her this morning when I got the text and mommy/baby are doing well.  I was a bit emotional this morning, but I know my time will come.  I'm so excited to meet my niece and spoil the crap out of her.  I did take a full day off of work in 2 weeks to spend the day with them.

Piloxing Week #4

So last night was my last Piloxing class.  My friends may or may not continue doing the class until January, they need to find space first if they decide to.  So I have decided to buy the Piloxing workout DVD.  Personally, for me it is better for me to work out with other people but I think I will be able to keep this one up on my own.  It's alot of fun, but I have said this about other workout DVDs that I have and they are collecting dust.  Plus my sister-in-law may work out with me once I get it so that may help with with motivation.  This morning I'm not as sore as in my previous weeks, but I do feel it in my arms, legs and abs.  That may change this afternoon or tomorrow.  I normally really feel sore a couple days after, especially doing kickboxing on Thursdays.

Piloxing Week #3

Last night was my third piloxing class.  It got moved to Friday this week since the majority of the class, including the instructor, had parent teacher night at school.  Last night the instructors introduced new segments during the class:  new ab, leg, and butt moves.  Let me tell you readers this, I even felt sore last night a few hours after class especially in my abs and arms.  Today, I'm all over sore especially my butt.  I also went to my kickboxing class this morning and had a difficult time with the lower body, I was that sore.  I'll say it again though, I love piloxing.  The instructors, who are good friends of mine, will be continuing this class in January when they open up their own fitness studio.  I'm hoping that they will find some way to continue this class in between that time frame.  I honestly see a slight difference in my body after only 3 weeks (especially my trouble spots belly, butt, and thighs).  Even if they don't continue it until January, I think I may buy the video.  My sister-in-law does the class with me and I'm sure she'll come over to exercise with me.
