My So Called Life....

So before I hopefully tempt you all with my culinary skills, I figured I would give you some background. I have been known to randomly throw out obscure references (that only I usually get), so some background might help in sifting through my crazy thoughts. I am a southern girl living in Florida. And I don’t care what you say Florida is south of everyone else so my claim of being southern is true. And for all of you out there that think Florida is so great with the beaches and all, think again. Living with this humidity everyday is a killer on my hair and that is all that is important, right? So I married my high school sweetheart. How cliché is that? That is us below on our honeymoon. We went to Alaska. How cool is that? You might hear me call him the hubby, hubster, oh dear one, Brian, B, pain in the tush, and a lot of other names in my head when I am mad. But those might get me in trouble here as he is probably reading this right now. (Hi Hunny!) We officially met when we were 17. We knew of each other at 12 but that is a whole other story…. to make it short he listened to Marilyn Manson, I listened to Britney Spears, enough said. We went to college together and married one month after I got my degree. We will have been married three years next June. I then started my wonderful job. I mean it I truly love my job. (I’m not kidding.) What do I do you ask? I work in the psychological research field. I know some of you might be thinking she is the crazy one, she should be researching herself. But I am going to pretend to not hear that.

Okay, back to the oh so important info. We have two cats, Chloe and Pebbles. Yeah, Chloe is the queen of the United States and will let everyone know it. Pebbles is the cat who spends all day in the sink. I mean she is really there all day. Do any of you know how hard it is to get cat hair, and I mean clumps and clumps of cat hair out of the sink every day? But I regress, it was great for the two of them.

Until about a year ago, when I decided I wanted to expand the zoo I had created and we got a dog. He is Rocky and he is CRAZY. And he has made the cats hate us because they hate him. It is a dream of mine that one day I will live in a house of peace, but who am I kidding that is so not going to happen. (However if you know any good tricks on getting the cats and dog friendly, send them my way.) So those three animals are our kids. No real human babies yet and not seeing any in the near future much to the despair of both sets of prospective possible future grandparents.

One last big thing you should know is I am on a diet. Yeah, I know, I know diet=evil word. But remember that whole life change thing. Well my weight and body need to change. To put it simply, I am fat. Okay, wow that really hurts to say but it’s the truth and you know I only tell the truth (as I hold up my hand and look as innocent as a girl scout). So you can all know the numbers… I started out at 240 and I am currently at 225. I have lost 15 pounds so far. Only 75 more to go to hit my goal weight. So I will most likely be sporadically posting the weight loss updates and if you haven’t seen one in a while then harass me please. What better accountability is there than the harassment from complete strangers? So now you have the back story and can now say she is truly weird? But it’s okay I embrace it. Until next time……

P.S. Sorry for the quality of some of the photos. They were taken with my old camera and I'm still figuring out photoshop. Hopefully this will encourage me to improve.
