Crazy cat lady

That is who I am. But in a good way. Not in the hoarding, smells like cat pee lady. I just love cats. I have 2 of my own who are both rescues. Cody I've had for 11 yrs. He's my baby. Casper was a foster that my husband, yes you read that right. Husband fell in love with. So we kept him. He's new not even a year yet. I started working with a non profit organization here in North Florida call Mayport Cats (you can search them on facebook). I've been able to help foster kittens for her and free up space for new babies. I really enjoy doing it and thankfully my husband doesn't mind.

On Sunday I picked up some babies. We were actually able to rescue them from Miami. They were due to be put to sleep on Monday. It feels so rewarding to be able to save. I know you can't save them all but the ones that I can makes me smile. If your ever able to help you should. It makes me feel good to know I'm doing a good deed. Plus whats better then little kittens? I get my "baby fix".

These little faces make it worth it.

Strip clubs

or Gentleman's Clubs. They aren't the same, a little different. Anyways. Saturday night I went to my first Gentlemen's club. Really first strip club in general. I was really nervous b/c I had this image in my head before we even got there. To my surprise, it wasn't all that bad. I actually had a good time. I had envisioned the place to be dark and smell like vagina lol. It to be dirty with a bunch of horny men wooting and hollering at these woman. But it wasn't like that at all. Very clean, still dark but what do you expect. There were actually more woman then men in there at one point. I'd def go again. I will never judge something like that before experiencing it. And doing so with my husband was actually kinda neat.

Valentines Day

This year for Ella's class we decided to do suckers with lips for the girls and mustaches for the boys. I found a great blog that had printable templates of the lips and mustaches for me to use her daughters turned out super cute. So this is what we did. I printed out her templates and traced them on a piece of cardboard. Then used those to trace on to construction paper. That part was super easy. Then I took a hole puncher and punched a hole to insert the sucker stick through. Viola! That was it. It was super easy.

We started out with our supplies

and our end result was these pretty little things. I just have to wait for the Princess to come home to write everyone's name on them.

I'm sure they'll be a class hit!!

My journey

I've decided to blog about my weight loss journey. And it will be a journey. I will have ups and downs. Good days and bad days. On top of my weight loss journey there will be a deployment. I'm trying to use this time to bust my hump and be a new woman for my husband when he comes back home in the fall. I want him to step off the ship and see a whole new woman waiting for him. I'm going to try my hardest to not let negativity get the best of me and bring me down. We are all different in our own ways. There are going to be things about me that others don't like. But it's me. This is who I am. Love me or hate me, it's up to you. I'm not loosing weight for anyone but myself and my husband. So welcome to my journey. Today I weighed in at
gross right? yeah tell me about it. But a few weeks ago I was 231.6. My goal weight is 170lbs. My mini goal is 199. I just want to be under 200lbs. So 28lbs to go! I can do this. Weightloss and deployment will not break me. I will defeat both.
