     I am officially a home owner as of January 13th! It feels amazing to have been able to achieve this step at the age of nineteen. On going check list for the past 2 years of my life:

  • Find the boy
  • Graduate from high school
  • Go to college
  • Have a baby
  • Buy a house
  • ......Marriage? 
      Anyone see a trend here? BACKWARDS. My life goals have been reversed ever since I became pregnant. If you told me a year ago that I would be owning a house at 19, I would have laughed in your face. I am extremely proud of myself for coming this far. I can't wait to see what another year brings me.

Updates & Happy New Year!

     It is now 2012. No longer 2011. No more excuses for excess tummy pooch. I can no longer say "I had a baby this year." Now it has become "I had a baby last year." It saddens me. But I have lots to be excited for in the months to come.
     I used to get hyped up about planning my new year's resolutions and making new goals for myself. That has changed. At first I decided that my one and only resolution for this year would be to think of resolutions for next year, but after contemplating this idea I came up with a few others.....

  • Update blogs more regularly. Not just for public eyes, but because it's easier than writing a journal and I like to reflect.
  • Really commit to getting my figure back. I gained almost 60 pounds in my pregnancy and lost all of it ......and gained 10 back over the holidays.
  • Stay organized. I've always had problems with this. It's overwhelming, but if I keep on top of things, I have less stress.
  • Extreme couponing. I love to save money! I actually was able to do this with my daughter's xmas pictures and saved myself 300$ and only paying $4.17 out of pocket :)
