Yeah, Where the HECK is Barbie???

Now that is the question of the hour, huh?? Never fear - Barbie is alive and well - okay maybe not well but alive! Things have been super intense over the last week but I have survived and lived to blog about it. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers - we are hoping for some good news tomorrow about my sister in law.

In other news - no baby this month.......maybe I already said that but I took a test last week and once again got a big fat MINUS sign....sometimes I feel like I set myself up for the disappointment but I am still holding on to the hope that it will happen when the time is right? We did manage to get our house on the market and my father in law retired from his job - told ya it was a busy week! It was so sweet at my father in laws retirement party......I had probably 10 people come up and ask me if I was the girl from the magazine - one of them even asked me if I had before pictures with me???? It was very flattering and made me feel like I was the guest of honor!

As for food and exercise. I hit the gym last week and have really been trying to learn more about how weights/exercise/food works together. I started reading Larry North's book about fitness/nutrition and I'm trying to follow his eating plan. Basically his principles are to eat 5 to 6 small meals a day........I know, I know, how many times have I attempted this, only to not stick with it but this time I really want to see if it works - I will report back with my findings!

Okay I'm off to leave some Halloween treats for my co-workers........I've gotten into the spirit of "boo'ing" people this year! So much fun to see the suprised looks on their fact when they find a goodie!!

Glad you're alive! Sounds like you've been really busy (as usual)!

Wow you have been a busy lil I hope things start to calm down there for you Steph so you can get a breather and relax.

Yes I know your prolly sick of hearing "it will happen when its time" about the baby but it true honey! I am praying God will grant you what you want. I know you will be an excellent mother!!

As for your SIL....we continue to pray for her too. I can only imagine what your going through but just know I am here for you.... you ARE NOT alone. We love you!!

Please keep us updated on your SIL. We are praying for all of you. And Colette is are NOT alone!

As for the baby, give it time, it will happen. I know you probably get sick of hearing that, but it's true. I know it will happen and I can't wait to read that blog title when it finally does.

I hope you get a break soon and can relax a little. But having a house on the market is stressing so just take it all one day at a time.

Try setting a timer on your phone or computer so that you can eat something every 2-3 hours. It sounds like a PITA but you will see a HUGE difference and you'll feel like you are constantly eating. As long as it's healthy stuff then you'll be fine. You are helping your body and tricking your mind at the same time! :)

Totally random but you haven't mentioned it in a while and I feel compelled to's the pannus with all this exercise?
