About Us

The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Biggest Loser Update

So I haven't updated on the losing weight thing in a while. We are continuing to stick to the changes we made during the Biggest Loser competition. I am still tracking my weight with the women and Matt is tracking his mileage ran for the year to see how far he can go. After taking some time off during the holidays we are back on track and back to our end of competition weight. I have a goal I would like to meet at the beginning of February so we'll see if I can do it. Matt is around the weight he needs to be so he is focusing on running and strength training. I posted some pics to show our before and current progress. The first one is the most current picture of us and the second one was taken in September right before we started the contest.

My work and his work both just started a Biggest Loser contest and we were glad to say that we would not be participating because at this point we couldn't win.
Oh and here are the latest pictures received from Terre Haute that I had to share :)

Year of Babies

So in 2008 my life was blessed with more babies than I was use to being around. I went from no baby experience to doing any silly thing possible to make a baby laugh. I had three additions in my life and I wanted to share some photos of these precious little ones because I can't believe how fast they are changing. I love all three of them very much.

First born was my niece, Lucy Sky, born on April 18th. She is a wonderful baby and I hope I can be blessed with a baby just as pleasant as she is. She is my doll baby.

Lucy when she was born and the 2nd one is her at 8 months. It's amazing how they change.
Born next is my 2nd cousin, but he can call me Aunt Manna too if he wants. Kiyren Michael was born on June 30th at a whopping 10 lbs. He is very sweet and likes to snuggle and flirt. I can't believe how big he is.

The 1st pic is Kiyren at 4 weeks and the 2nd one is him at 5 months. He's probably 3 times the size of my little Lucy.
The third addition is still just a little guy and was born on December 16th, my nephew, Cameron Michael. He is precious and I could just hold him all day. He seems to like it when you sing to him and I noticed that he hums a lot. I can't wait to see more of his personality come out. My brother is doing great as a young dad and I am proud of him, but lucky for him (or unlucky)he has these two women to keep his butt in line.
