Today is NOT ME Monday again over at MckMama's blog! I thought that I would join in on the fun today. Hop on over to her blog to see who else is playing along! Have fun!
I am not totally posting this blog post at work!
I am not procrastinating about the 500 million things that I have to do!
I did not stay out until 230am this weekend to celebrate at my Bachelorette Party!
I did not eat Waffle House (all-star breakfast) at 245am this weekend...nope not me!
I did not stay up late last night even though I was exhausted!
I did not forget to put my wet clothes in the dryer this morning!
I did not decide to post a blog because I was bored at work again!
I am not going to keep reading the 40+ blogs that I read on a daily basis while I am at work!
I did not cheat on my diet this weekend because it was conveinient while driving to GA! Not me!
I did not FAIL to start packing earlier so that I would be ready to drive to Tampa on thursday!
I did not just totally get a call for an interview in Tampa like 3 minutes ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)
I did not just totally freak out and get all nervous!! haha
I did not just break out into a sweat! haha
I did not just realize that in 5 weeks I will be Mrs. Schafer and I will have a new home in a new town with no friends or little kids to hug......so bittersweet...what am I going to do with myself?

McMama over at My Charming Kids is hosting a brand new fun game entitled "Not Me Monday".....check it out! Join and fun! You can read about the game on her blog!
I did not leave my room a mess this weekend and ignore the fact that is desperately needed to be cleaned.
I did not indulged myself with 3 cupcakes because they tasted so damn good. Nope, not me!!!
I did not fail to get a haircut that I really needed because I didn't feel like it.
I did not stay out until 2am with my neighbors.
I did not decide to blog at work because I am bored!
I did not ignore the fact that I had a million things to do this weekend.
I did not give up my yummy Nathan's hot dog to a little girl who wanted it.
I did not, did not, did not, do any of these things!!! hehe :)
**I was at my heaviest about 1.5 years ago weighing in at 189!
**Back in June I was at 180!
And as of this weekend I am officially 169!!!! I have tried soooo hard for so long to get below 170! I can't explain to you how good this makes me feel! I should have started running a long time ago! haha The coolest thing about it all is that I haven't really been dieting! I have cut back on my portions and not eaten as much as I normally do....stopping when I'm full and not overeating. A diet like that works great for me! :)
The story of when I weighed myself is actually pretty funny. I went over to my friend Vikki's house (she is also on a weight loss plan and she's loss 70 pounds!) and she has this high tech scale. Well the last time that I was on it, I weight 176.1 pounds. Well when the number popped up as 169 all that I saw was the 9....I was like damnit!! I gained 3 pounds!! While I'm sulking, Vikki is jumping up and down with excitement and then it hits me that that is a 6 and not a 7!! It was too funny to say the least. We hugged each other and got so excited. It's so great to have motivation and support like that!!!
Let's say that I feel very accomplished and have not gone out and overindulged myself yet. haha and I probably won't be doing that. The wedding is now 6 weeks away and I am trying my dress on again this Thursday.....THE FINAL FITTING......so all that I can do, is keep going down.
For my height I should range anywhere from 118-159 pounds so I am still considered to be overweight. My current goal is 165 and once I reach that I think I will aim for 160 or even 155. I still have a long way to go and if I have made it this far....I will make it that far!
My mom has also lost weight since her surgery. She's lost 11 pounds also! She looks really good! She was so excited to because she's been struggling with her weight as well. There is so much support and motivation around us to keep us all going. It really does make a HUGE difference. Thanks everyone for listening! HAPPY MONDAY!

These pictures are random and come from the past year or so....I have many favorites but I just wanted to share a few today. Have Fun on Friday!! :) Don't forget to check out Who Says 8 is Enough? to see who else is playing along!
My momma is doing well. She started walking more yesterday. She's laughing a little more and starting to tell everyone how to clean the house again. Gotta love mom! :) So she's healing, slowly but surely. She still can't be in a car or drive until next Friday the 26th which is just in time for my bridal shower in GA. I know it has be driving her nuts to be laying around on the bed all day. Thank GOD my grandma is here to help take care of her. She truely is a blessing. I do not know what I would have done without her being here. Thanks Grandma!
I am getting very excited about my bridal shower. I can't wait to see all the fun things my cousin has planned. The whole time it has been a secret! :) The wedding is getting so close so fast! I'm almost 6 weeks away...it's almost time for the money to start going out the door! I sure hope Daddy is working hard....haha :)
Ahhhh if only I could sit outside while I work my life away today. I have a fantastic view of the sky from my seat and I want to be out there so bad. Nothing but blue sky and a cool breeze....I really love the FALL and I can't wait for it to be here. That means the Fair is coming....the leaves will be falling....cool air will be blowing....pumpkin pies will be baking....sweaters will be wearing....haha....I can't wait!!!

Well my momma's surgery went really well. She is home now and in the bed on some serious medicine. She is not having a very good day today (worse so far) so extra prayers would be appreciated :) She should be back on her feet in about 8 weeks...she is walking around a little bit but it's only to get out of the bed to use the bathroom or to stretch just a little bit. I love you momma :)
The weekend was nice. In between visiting my momma I was able to get some things done that I needed to get done. I kind of took over "mom" roles while she is on bed rest and it's not so bad. I think of it as a learning experience in preparation to becoming David's wifey! :) I cooked breakfast for my dad this AM and it actually turned out really nice and he appreciated it!
I got some of my bridemaids gifts stuff taken care of and did a little shopping for some other things. Had a nice cookout with the neighbors and did alot of traveling around to visit my momma. My grandma came in and is helping and staying for the week. She stayed all 3 days with my mom and didn't leave one time...she is such an angel :)
The pictures above are some pictures we took on Thursday, the day before my mom's surgery :) I'm heading to bed now...I am really tired :)

I worked on wedding invitations this weekend. I have been trying to get those finished up because they need to go out next week! Almost 2 months left before the wedding! We are so excited! :)
Sunday was another lazy day. I went to the land with my parents for a little while....ran some errands with my mom that needed to be done before her surgery on Wednesday. Later that evening I hung out with the neighbors and kids for a bit then I went in and watched some movies with my parents and sister. We watched What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas and then we watched Nim's Island. Both were very cute movies :)
Today I went to the zoo with some friends (Ricky, Jillian, Brax, Amanda and Danielle). We had a blast. It wasn't too hot and the place was crowded but it wasn't too bad. We had a great time. See my photos below of some of my favorite animals. Well I'm going to finish watching Family Guy and folding my clothes. We could possibly have a visit from Hurricane Hanna this weekend (hopefully not) so we are trying to get some things taken care of. Please pray that the storm heads away from the US and dissappears into the Atlantic :) Have a great night everyone!
Ok soooooo the pictures did not work...I will post later!
