Im the Biggest LOSER!

We had the funnest Enrichement tonight! Bette-Sue from last seasons Biggest Loser, was the speaker. .For those of you who don't know who she is. . YOU are totally missing out! This show is my absolutle favorite. It inspires me. Cause if these people can work out for 8+ plus hours a day, than there is NO reason why I can't put in my half hour. But back to my night, Bette-Sue was one half of the pink team, and her other half, her daughter Ali, just so happened to BE the Biggest Loser! Amazing!

Bette-Sue was LOL funny, and down to earth at the exact same time. I could have watched/listened to her for another 24 hours straight. She shared her very personal experience and journey, and weaved the Gospel in at every turn. She was truly inspiring.

Let me introduce Tina. Love her. We met at a community Biggest Loser challange, which she won. . speaking of inspirations. I love women like her that work full time as moms and still take care of number one. I'll say it again: love her.

Baby Shower

So many of you may not know this, but we're having a baby!!! Yup, but unlike most of you parents -to be, we aren't going about it the most popular way. :) We are being blessed by the miracle of adoption!(I'll expand more on a later post).

This week three amazing girls from my ward threw us a shower. We played a really fun game, at lots of junkfood, and I was giddy with delight that I am here, in this place in my life, where we could celebrate our baby to be. Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a blast!

We handed out this poem, with chocolate hearts as a party favor:

"Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart-but in it."
Love it.

Story of My Life right now. .

Can you even tell that my husband is under there. . somewhere? He is working so many hours right now, that as SOON as he gets home, if he sits down, he is asleep. I think this picture was taken at 830 at night. I could have turned music on and danced around naked. . and he never would have known. Well, maybe. Poor guy. Sure glad he's my guy though.

Now or NEVER

I just can't resist the blogging world any longer. I've put it off because i thinks its a wee bit LAME to have a blog, when you dont have babies to show off. . but since we are planning on changing that soon, HERE WE COME! I hope your ready, cause its definatly a roller-coaster with us Stikas. See ya soon.
