I always say I am going to keep up with this thing and I don't. It's the same way with me and losing weight! I say I'm going to do it then turn around and eat a bag of chocolate covered popcorn! Oh well, it tasted good! :) Have you ever heard the expression, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"? Well, I would like to say that's true but I love food too much! Yes, I want to be skinny and I know it will feel so good to be so. But food tastes good! And I have little self-control when it comes to it! As the holidays are upon us, I am going to try and do two things that I have trouble doing: keeping up with this blog and losing weight. Fingers crossed people!
Our summer was crazy. We had family and friends at our house almost the entire summer. It was fun but exhausting. The first part of September we took our vacation. We dropped Abigail off with my parents and Ryan and I made the trip up to Greensboro, Ga to the Ritz Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation. It was so nice! Plus it was the first alone trip that Ryan and I have taken in over 4 years. It was great to get away. We stayed two nights and then made our way back to Graceville and spent the remainder of the week with my family. I miss them so much! Going home is always great but makes me miss them even more when we get back to Fernandina. I would love for us all to live in the same area again!
Abigail continues to amaze me! I can say that being a mother has taught me more about God's love for us than anything else! I am overwhelmed by it! She looks like her daddy the most but bless her heart she is me in personality and behavior! She has as many of my bad qualities as my good! :) For instance, I am easily irritated when I am trying to do something and it's not going my way. This child will whine and cry when it happens to her! She also has my facial expressions. She is always making goofy faces and poking her lips out! Haha. She is a well rounded person. Somedays I think she's just 100% girly girl but then she turns around and I think, "she should have been a boy," jumping off couches, trying to beat her daddy or me up, she loves balls or boomas as she calls them. But she also loves clothes, shoes, jewelry, cell phones, purses, singing, and dancing. And let me tell you, this girl knows how to shake her booty!
Now, she is whining for more juice so I better sign off here and get us both out of this house before we go crazy!
