Weight loss update!!

I hadn't posted on here in a long time. I just wanted to update my weight loss numbers. I am up to 37 lbs lost!!! Yeah for me!

September 09, 2007


So anyone who knows Kyan, knows that the child LOVES Elmo! Lately that is all he talks about. I asked him the other day what my name was and he told me "Elmo"!! So we decided to take him to see Elmo when he came to town this weekend. It didn't go as well as expected. The show was during nap time and Kyan ending up missing the last half of the show. Trey had to take him to the car for a nap. Which he feel asleep within seconds of getting into the car.

First Day of School

Nevaeh started her 2nd year at preschool today. I can't believe that this time next year she will be starting kindergarten!!! My how time flies.

I lost

another 2 lbs. So the running total is 31.6!!!!! YEAH ME!

August 31, 2007

Another Scrapbook Page

Here is another scrapbook page I did recently. I wasn't feeling it when I orginally did it. So I left it on my desk to see if I could come up with something better. Now I think it came out much better.

August 30, 2007

I lost

4.6 lbs!! Yeah! I finally got out of my weigh loss rut!

August 21, 2007

No news yet

about the carrier testing. I will try to update when I hear some. Not much else going on here. I am joining Weight Watchers on Thursday. I just can't seem to lose anymore weight. :( Wish me luck!

Carrier Testing

Hopefully this week we find out how Kyan got Hemophilia. We are going in for carrier testing to see if I am a carrier or if it was spontaneous mutation when I was pregnant with him. I think this is a good test to have since there are so many girls in the family that might be affected, if I am a carrier.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Things have been really hectic for me lately. I don't get much time on the computer anymore unless it is doing work. We did actually get to go out on a date without the kids Saturday to Wild Wings (Trey's favorite) and saw I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. It was a cute movie, a little corny in a few spots. Kyan's therapy schedule has been keeping me pretty busy. We switched to a new location for physical therapy and he has been doing really well there. There has been talk of changing him to occupational therapy, which I don't know much about, instead of PT. Well I better run. I got lots to do!

July 19, 2007


it looks like Kyan may be autistic. We are being referred to the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs to their CARE team. The actual assessment probably won't take place till some time in September or October because the are so backed up. I am not sure what to think yet. I guess I am waiting to the "official" diagnosis to take place with people more familiar with autism.

Nevaeh is back from Virginia. I missed her terribly!! It is soooooo good to have her home!! I got my scanner hooked up. I am trying to figure out how to use it. So hopefully soon, I can post some of my scrapbook pages on a slide show. (time permitting!!)

July 06, 2007

More Updates

Next Wednesday is Kyan's autism assessment by the county. We will see how that goes. He has been making good progress with therapy. He is "trying" to talk a little bit more. But he has also had a lot of looooong tantrums as well.

Nevaeh is in Virginia with my sister till July 15th. :( I miss her terribly!!! This is the first time I have been away from her other than the times with Kyan in the hospital.

Not much else is going on. I am getting my Mustek scanner this week!! Trey finally bought it for me as a late mother's day/anniversary present. I am SOO excited to try it out.

June 22, 2007


I haven't posted in a while. So much has been going on. My sister and her kids are coming next week!!! I am down another 2 lbs. So the total now is 25 lbs lost. Kyan has started speech therapy, along with his physical therapy and early intervention therapy. Now his early intervention therapist thinks he may be autistic. I am not sure how I feel about this. She said that she isn't sure if he was autistic but he is showing some signs of it. She wants a specialist from the county to come out and assess him. I don't have any Friday Five pictures to post today. More later.........

AHHH a monster!!!! Nope it's just Kyan!!


Ok, I have been messing around with Photoshop Elements. It's pretty cool. I still have a lot to learn but I created this header with it. I still need LOTS of practice.....


This past week was a complete waste!! UGH! I was having pains in my stomach for 2 days and finally went to the emergency room Tuesday night at 1am. They at first thought it was my gall bladder but it ended up being a urinary tract infection. I have never had one of these before!! And hope to never have one again!!! I am on antibotics so I am starting to feel better. I am finally going back to the gym tonight for the first time in over a week!!

May 27, 2007

My Chunk Update

As of this morning when I weighed myself, I am offically down 23 lbs!!!!!! YEAH!!! But now nothing fits me anymore. I have been going thru my closet getting rid of some stuff that doesn't fit me anymore. I am trying not to go buy a bunch of new things because I plan on losing more. So I am hoping to just make due with what I got. I actually found some cute stuff at Goodwill that I didn't pay much for!!!

I am trying to scrapbook this weekend for an online crop with Personal Scrapper. I have done 3 layouts last night but I am not happy with 2 of them. :( I have lost my scrap mojo!!! I want to do more tonight, so we will see if I get it back. Trey said that he was going to buy me my wide format scanner!!! I am going to get a Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB. We are just saving up a little money to buy it. It is going to be my LATE mother's day/anniversary present.

May 15, 2007

Last Day of School

Today was Nevaeh's last day of preschool till September. I was party mom today. I had no idea what to do, so I decided to make pipe cleaner butterflies. Here are some pictures from today. Nevaeh is so going to miss school and is going to drive me crazy with her "What are we going to do today Mommy?"

May 13, 2007

Happy Mother's Day & Anniversary to Us!!

Happy Mother's Day to all!! Trey made me breakfast and is going to make me dinner tonight. He also cleaned for me today. I had to grocery shop and do laundry though. He doesn't do those chores!!! It is also our 7th wedding anniversary today!! Time sure does fly!

May 11, 2007

Happy Military Spouses Appreciation Day!!

If you know a Military Spouse please give them a hug today!!!

Friday Five

Here my friday five pictures. I only had Kameron, Nevaeh and Hunter to pose for me because Kyan was napping. Kameron didn't last much longer after, he needed a nap too!! Kameron is the little boy that I watch during the day. Isn't he a cutie!! I love the one where he is looking at the pink stuffed dog!!

May 07, 2007

I really, really need a new scanner. Preferably a large format one that can scan my 12 x 12 scrapbook pages. Anyone know of a really good one that is inexpensive???

I did only 3 layouts this weekend. :( But I did go to AC Moore's Midnight Madness sale. I got some Heidi Swapp stuff that I am loving!!! I am inching closer to finally doing the scrapbook page about my son's Hemophilia. I actually have a picture of the nurse doing the heel stick that lead to his diagnosis. I have been putting this off for a long time but finally feel like I have the words that I want to say on the layout. I am still nervous about it and it will probably make me cry!!

May 06, 2007


Recently I have been inspired by others to write about my thoughts and fears of my son's diagnosis of hemophilia. I have always wanted to write about it but never felt like I was in that place to write anything good about it, just the negatives. So here it goes.

I feel truely blessed to have a son with hemophilia. I can't imagine life without him or without hemophilia. Of course I always didn't feel that way.

May 05, 2007

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

I will be scrapbooking today and this weekend with Personal Scrapper's online crop!!! YEAH!

It seems like forever since I blogged. I am still working out pretty much everyday. I have lost another 3 lbs and 4% body fat!! But I still want to lose more!!! Trey started working out with me and lost 10 lbs in his first week. I wanted to smack him! NOT FAIR!!

I started watching a baby during the day. He is 3 months old. He is a really good baby and truely very easy to keep.

Kyan went for his 18 month well baby, even though he is technically 20 months. He is 35 lbs!!!! OMG! Nevaeh is approaching the end of her first year of preschool. Just a few more weeks left. She is going to go crazy this summer with no school. Hope everyone is doing well. More later.

This is one of my favorites.

Other than that, my yard is at the moment being torn up to have our sprinkler system installed. WOW! I didn't know how much work there is in putting in a sprinkler system. I can't wait to see the final results.

OH!!! And other big news. Totally forgot to post this. Trey got promoted to E7!!! YEAH!!!!!

March 31, 2007

Boring Boring

We not much going on here. Trey is gone, so its just me and the kids. I found some cute clothes in a yard sale today for Kyan. I also went to work out at the gym. My personal trainer Carmen wants me to lose 5 pounds by Monday the 9th. I have been working hard but don't feel like anything is coming off. UGH!!! I really want to go work out tomorrow but the daycare isn't open and I don't have anyone to watch the kids. So if it doesn't rain, I guess I will walk w/ the double stroller.

I am going to participate in a online scrapbook crop with Personal Scrapper. I hope to get a lot accomplished. I will try to post some of my finished pages.

March 26, 2007

Long Time

Gosh it has been a long time since my last blog. I have been busy with my two new activities. Working out at the gym and selling stuff on Ebay. Since I have an additive personality (lol!), those are my two favorite new things. Of course if you ask me tomorrow after my first meeting with my personal trainer, I might change my mind about the working out being one of my favorites!! I joined the gym about a month ago and finally decided to get the extra help of a personal trainer. It's expensive but hopefully worth it. I have a bunch of weight to loose and need all the help I can get. Pilates is also a new favorite of mine. I had never taken a class before and didn't know much about it. I love it!!!! So if you have never taken a pilates class, I recommend that you do!!!

February 26, 2007

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I infused Kyan for the first time by myself!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!! And I didn't screw it up. Of course this wasn't the face he was making while I did it. It was more like screaming and tears streaming down his face. This picture just represents my feelings after it was over. LOL!!!

February 20, 2007


Kyan had his port surgery. It went really well. In fact the insision is already healed up. Yesterday I tried to stick the needle in his port for the first time. "Tried" being the key word. I didn't anticipate that it was going to be that hard to push thru. So I freaked out and passed the needle off to the nurse that was helping me. She explained that not only does the needle need to pass thru the skin, it also needs to pass thru the rubber of the port. I didn't realize that, so sticking a needle in a port is going to be a lot different then just sticking it thru skin. Plus it isn't a regular needle, its a huber needle (its angled). Hopefully next time I won't freak out and be able to do it. We are having home infusion nurse start coming to the house twice a week to help me. Which hopefully will work out wonderfully, so that I don't have to make that trip to Palmetto Richland anymore. Not that I don't just love the nurses at the Blood Disorder Clinic. I have bonded with them so well of the last couple of months. It will be strange not seeing or talking to them as much as I did before. Well I better run. Kyan is awake from his nap and I am off to the post office. I will write more later.

February 18, 2007


I was up all night with Nevaeh. She has the stomach flu. YUCK!!! Crossing my fingers that no one else gets it!

February 05, 2007

Ok so it's

February now and I never post anything anymore. Well I have a pretty good reason. Things have been really crazy here lately. Kyan has been in and out of the hospital a lot lately. He was admitted last weekend for a tongue bleed. It was really SCARY!!! He lost so much blood that he was pale and lethargic etc. He ended up getting stuck 15 times while being in the hospital. I am not sure what has brought on his poor vein access lately. Maybe the frequency of his bleeds. His hematologist finally said it was time for a port. So we go back to the hospital this Friday the 9th for port surgery. I am nervous and excited at the same time. The port should allow us to have some much needed normalcy! But at the same time I am apprehensive of having him cut open to have it put in his chest. Plus now I get to be the bad guy and have to stick him now. It was nice to have the nurses get that bad reputation of being the one who sticks and mommy be the one who just cuddles him afterward!!

My sister and mom are coming down to help w/ Nevaeh. Trey gets another group of soldiers on Thursday, so he won't be around much. Well I will try to post more another day.

January 06, 2007

Bad Bad Blogger

So OK, I am pretty terrible lately at blogging. Everyone here has gotten a cold, so blogging just isn't a priority. I am finally going to put up some pictures from Christmas. Trey hasn't been working much lately. No soldiers yet. Probably not till sometime in February. Kyan is walking really well now. Still falling sometime. He is also turning into a toddler!! I am losing my baby!!!!! I registered Nevaeh for next year for preschool. She will be going 5 days a week to prepare for kindergarten. We painted Kyan's bedroom. Finally. I will try to remember to take some pictures of it and post them. Not to much else going on. I will post some more later.

January 03, 2007

We're Home!!

We just got back from Virginia for New Year's yesterday. I am still catching up. I hope to post pictures from Christmas soon! Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years!!!
