So we meet again....

Wow, its been awhile since I've last blogged. So much has happened, so many thoughts race through my mind. My dear friend Liz got me hooked in the blogging world and let me tell ya, even though I don't update quite as much as I'd like, I sure do keep up daily with the many lovely ladies I've found in bloggy world. I love to hear about each lady's life experiences, adventures in mommyhood, weightloss journies, craft ideas, recipes, pictures, and the list goes on and on ....

So what have I been up to these last few months might you ask? As of the beginning of January I have started school, again, this time in hopes of completing my Post Bachelor's Certificate in Accounting. By the end of the program I should be able to complete the state testing and become a CPA in Oregon! I'm really excited for this journey, I know its going to be A LOT of work, but I am determined to succeed come hell or high water, or how exhausted, bitchy, or malnourished I become. :) This leads me to my current struggle. Most (well all two of you followers) whom I know personally, know how obsessed I've become with exercising, eat healthy, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. With working darn near full time hours, and going to school 3 nights a week, this has caused my exercise & eating habits to fall to the wayside. My question to you ladies is, how do you, while maintaining a busy & hectic home keep up with your exercising and healthy eating? I need some good suggestions to keep me motivated!

Alright, I should get back to work! Midterm 1 tonight. Wish me luck!

Love to you all!

Yeah! You are back! Well, I too struggle with the healthy eating habit. I'm going back to good ol' WW tomorrow. As for excercising... I get up earlier and try to get my 2nd workout in during naptime. My routine is going to change a bit this week, so we will see how it goes. I'm sure you are still doing much better than I am!!

Hey Angela! How come I'm just meeting you now? I think because I seem to have a couple Angela's that follow. I didn't click over everytime to see if it was the same Angela. So sorry!!! It is so great to meet you. And how lucky are you to be friends with Liz & her adorable girls in real life?? Lucky you! :)

Love your blog. Hey, if you find the answer to keeping up with exercise & healthy eating, will you pass the info my way? lol For me, it's planning. Planning it out is the key.

I got my cute lanterns at Marshalls! Love them.

Hey Amber! Thanks :) I am blessed to have reconnected with Liz again. I hadn't seen her since high school! She is such an amazing friend and mamma for sure!

Hi Ang! Where have I been??? I was checking your blog daily, and then things got crazy busy here ;) So glad you are back. I know you are one busy lady, but I sure do love when you update your blog!!

As for the eating healthy and exercising, I'd love the answer to that as well! I find it so hard to squeeze exercise in, though when I do, I feel so much better. Even 20 minutes is great, and it seems like we can all find an extra twenty minutes somewhere in the day. Can you walk and read your decorating magazines? ;)
