lifes a beach!

Jesse and I went to the gym first thing this morning. I got on the eliptical again and I ran on the treadmill a bit too.

Then we went to the beach...It was a very nice day again today. I finished my newest James Patterson book, "Sundays at Tiffany's" I read it in about a day and a half. There were jellyfish EVERYWHERE!! They are just the little guys with no tenticles so I assume that they don't sting...but yesterday Jesse got stung by one on his leg. It didn't seem to hurt him too much, but I still don't like those creepy little things. They look like balls of snot.

So, we went to the pool and had a good time.

For dinner we drove down to Nags Head. First we stopped at Jockey's Ridge State Park which boasts the largest sand dunes on the East coast. It was pretty neat...the dunes are enormous. I wanted to walk up the hill, but it didn't happen.

Then we were off to find some dinner... first we stopped at a seafood bufft called "Carolina Seafood" It looked like a hole in the wall, yucky, yuk, yuk..... and then our waitress was about 104 and she threw down a dirty-lookin', wet plastic bowl on the table. I think my Mom was grossed out and then the waitress told us that the buffet was $29.99. We decided to leave.

Then we drove right down the road to place called Awful Arther's. It looked SOOOO much better! In fact, it must have been a lot better because there was a 2 hour wait!! It was already 7 pm and 9 seemed like a looong way away. So, again, we left.

Finally we stopped at a place (where I had been wanting to go all week!) called "Barefoot Bernie's" There was only a 20 minute wait. I had the Santa Fe Salad. Jesse had a Philly Cheesesteak. My Dad had what they call Grouper in a bag...and my Mom had a BBQ Chicken Salad, which she LOVED. Mine was good...and I tasted Jesse's and it was tasty too!! We also got chips and guacamole dip for an appetizer. They also brought out a bagette with olive oil dipping oil. (ps...I still have garlic breath) Anyway, it was a great little restaurant.

Tomorrow Jesse and I will be leaving here :( But I can't wait to see my lil Kitsy!!

it did! The Sun Came Out!!

Today was a great beach day! Jesse and I skipped working out (and its probably a good thing cause my hammies were screamin'! from the eliptical!) We headed over to the beach around 11ish and we stayed out there for a good while.

After that we came back to the room, had sandwiches and then went to the pool.

After all the outdoor fun...we got prettied up and drove to Duck. Yes, thats right. There is a town here on the Outer Banks called Duck. Duck seems like a more upscale area. There is a lot of shopping there and some outstandingly beautiful homes.

We ate dinner at a little BBQ place called "Sooey's" It was SO good! I had beef brisket and it was delicious!! Jesse had a pulled pork sandwich and I tasted it and it was wonderful too! YUM!!

After dinner we went to a shopping area called The Waterfront Shops...They are right on the sound and it was a beautiful view of the sunset

Yesterday I bought some Salt Water Taffy....and I can't keep my hands outta it!!

the sun'ul come out...tomorrow

After the rainy first day... we went to dinner at a restaurant called Miller's. It was WAY overpriced and not that good. The salad was good. Jesse and I shared a meal called the Broiled Sampler. It had flounder, scallops, shrimp, and a crab cake.

After dinner we walked over to a fishing pier. It was a really nice view...but the pier was kinda crooked and everyonce in awhile the boards were creaky. Mom and Jesse were freaked out. It was a little creepy.

I have some pictures that I took on the pier...but I accidently took them on my camera internal memory and I don't have anyway to get them on my laptop right now.

I'll get those up when I can.

booo...rainy day

Today we woke up pretty early...the neighbors were slightly loud! Then we went over to the fitness center where I got on an eliptical machine for 20 minutes. When I got off my legs felt like jell-o.

There was only one treadmill and some old lady was on it. The other 2 were out of order.

After was looking a little cloudy...but it appeared to be clearing a little. So we decided to head over to the beach anyway. As soon as we got there Jesse and I spread out our blanket and went on a walk. We had walked around 10 minutes maybe when we decided to turn around.

Right then....the sky starting spitting a little rain on us. It wasn't bad. The weather was a little cool, but the ocean was FREEZING!! We kept running to stay out of the waves. When we made it back to our blanket, we sat for a few minutes...and then we heard THUNDER!! Dark clouds rolled through and we rolled outta there!

That was around 12:30. Since then we've been sitting around the "villa". Jesse's taking a little snooze.

Isn't that a rockin' couch? This place is totally "Golden Girls"

we have arrived!

Well... we made it here to the Outer Banks. Its late on Sunday evening right now...

Its quite different than Mytle Beach, thats for sure. So far...its pretty nice! We got here around 4 pm and then we went to dinner at a place called "Pizzazz Pizza Company" We had a "deluxe" which was a pizza with green peppers, onions, ham, olives, jalapenos, sausage and pepperoni. It was VERY good! So good, in fact, I had 3.5 slices!!! I blew the diet today!!

After dinner we went to the Foodlion to get groceries. Then we drove over to see the beach. It was very nice. Today was very cloudy and cool. Its supposed to get over 90 degrees later this week though. They're forcasting possible showers tomorrow and tuesday but I think it'll be fine!

Tomorrow Jesse and I are planning on waking up around 9 and going to work out. This place has a really nice gym. After that....if its nice, then I guess we'll be off to the beach!

Its Road Trip Time!!
As this blog post is being published I am currently riding in Jesse's Acura, following my Dad and Mom in their Toyota to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.... We are finally on our way!! We should be arriving at our resort at around 4 pm. Wahooo! I can't wait to write more about it!

This is me!!---->

beach tomorrow!!!

Yay! I'm leaving for the beach tomorrow. As I type now I am sitting in my living room with Jesse and my mom and dad and we are watching the Women's gymnastics Olympic Trials. These girls are good!

Earlier we ate at Monte De Rey and then we went to McDonald's and got dessert. I got a vanilla cone! YUM!

Kitsy is so sweet and laying right beside me! I'm really gonna miss her this week!

I was told the other day by Jesse's brother (Hi Mike!) that he really enjoyed reading my blog lately...until he read about my vomit the other day! haha.. of course I laughed but I want to say that I'm sorry if I grossed anyone out. I hope Mike continues to read the blog..haha. From now on if I'm going to be nasty I'll (try to) warn you first.

Yesterday I worked literally nonstop packing and cleaning from the time my feet hit the floor around 9 am until 2 am when I went to bed. I was thankful today that I got all that stuff accomplished yesterday though. I was able to rest a bit today. Jesse and I went to the library and I picked up a few James Patterson books for the beach. Then we went to the Goodwill for old times sake.

Now its around 11 and my parents are getting ready for bed. Jesse and I will probably be up a little later....tomorrow we'll be up around 8 am and on the road by 9:30!! I can't wait... I think I'm mostly excited about going someplace different, someplace I've never been before.

Don't worry!.... Jesse's bringing his laptop so I should be able to blog a bit while we're there! Pray for us to have a safe trip tomorrow!

Good Night!

back 2 work

Today I made it to Cracker Barrel and I had a good day. I didn't have too crappy of a section...but I had to do portions. Yuk!

After work Jesse and I went to the pool again....It was so nice that I fell asleep out there! The weather was beautiful today!

After that I ran on the know, the same ol' crap.

For dinner we had taco salad...and then I watched So I Think You Can Dance. I'm a huge fan of Joshua. He's really good.

sick day!

Hahahaha! I felt terrible this morning when I woke up. It must have been from my birth control pills..they used to make me feel sick in the morning a lot. Since I switched to low dose I only feel sick every once in awhile. But..this morning was one of those times.

I tried to get ready for work and I even put a little makeup on. Then I got a sick feeling in my belly and I had to go to the bathroom, if you catch my drift. Then I got REALLY nasty feeling and I dry heaved over the toilet. Then I threw up something that looked like raw egg whites. I thought it was over...and then, I threw up something that looked like a raw egg yolk!! It was disgusting, but I had to share. I don't know what in the world it could have been because I ate Pop Secret 100 Calorie Kettlecorn last night. I just can't figure out where that yellow color came from....maybe the peach I ate, I dunno.

So.. I felt that it was a good excuse to call into work! I didn't go to Cracker Barrel and I'm glad that I had another whole day to mess around. But..mark my words, I'll get a crappy section tomorrow because of it... probably in the smoking section. I was supposed to work only 11 to 2:30 today...and thats what I'm scheduled for tomorrow too. I'm so glad that I'm almost done with that place.

After I started to feel better I got ready and Jesse and I went to the Bank, Kmart, and we dropped off a bunch of old clothes at the Goodwill. After that we came home and had ham sandwiches and then went to the pool! I love my bikini so much that I wore it again!

After the pool I did my Self; Scupt Sexy Legs Fast DVD. Its crazy how much easier it is now than the first couple of times I did it. I'm sure my legs will still be sore tomorrow though! Jesse did part of it with me the other day...and his hamstrings were so sore!! hahaha.

We balanced our bathroom scale that I mean we put Jesse's weights on them to see how accurately they were weighing. We found out that they were actually a little heavy. So I fixed it...and when I weighed myself I was quite pleasantly surprised! I weigh less now than I can ever remember... It was kinda funny cause I remember feeling skinny when Jesse and I got married. We watched our wedding video today and my face looked a little chunky! I always look fatter in pictures and videos, but I was heavier then than now for sure. I think I was sround 122 lbs on the wedding day.

Anyway... we ate dinner and then I packed a lot of bathroom stuff and I packed up almost all of my closet.

I'm getting SO excited about going to the Outer Banks! We will be leaving on Sunday!! Here are some photos of where we are going... The decorations are a little outdated, but... hey, the parents are paying!

I saved the best for last! YAY! I can't wait!

Beep Beep Bikinis Back!!

So!! Today I went to Ross (didn't see anything there) then to Kohl's. At Kohl's I bought a shirt that was on clearance, a pair of khaki shorts, and a striped bikini!

This time when I brought it home Jesse really liked it! YAY! I actually wore it to the pool today too! Its cute... its got horizontal pink, orange, yellow, green, and white stripes.

I got the bottoms that the blonde is wearing...and the top that the brunette is wearing.

After Kohl's I stopped at Walmart and got a few things. When I got home I made myself a delicious honey ham sandwich and then Jesse and I went to the pool.

After the pool I ran on the treadmill while I watched Judge Greg Mathis and Family Feud. After that I cooked seared salmon with a balsamic reduction sauce...which is SO good and really healthy! I got the recipe from We also had green beans and california cole slaw, also from that site. It was a yummy dinner. Here's my calorie info for the day

packed today

I woke up this morning... and took Kitsy outside for awhile. She is LOVING going outside lately. She just sits by the door and yells for us to take her out. Its really sad. I decided to take her out for awhile before it got hot later.

Then I packed a lot of crap. Still have quite a bit to pack...but I am making progress. Now I just gotta find a few more boxes.

After that I ran on the treadmill. I hate running on the treadmill on Saturdays because there is NOTHING on TV. (We don't have cable...just an antennae) Today I hooked up an old VCR and watched Aladdin. It must have helped me zone out and forget that I was running because I did a total of 6.25 miles. That's my new record. I did walk a few times...and at the end I was running 8.5 mph for a 1/4 mile and then walked at 4.0 mph for a quarter mile. I got to the part of the movie where Jafar gets the lamp and the genie.

After that I cooked dinner--meatloaf, green beans, and coleslaw.

Since then I've really been pretty bored....I read my newest James Patterson book, The Quickie, for a few hours.

and I guess now I'm gonna finish this boring day and go to sleep.

felt pretty today...took lotsa pictures

oh yeah... I have some news!

I have been waiting to write about this because I wanted to tell my parents first....but

We found a place to live in WV!! Its in Teays Valley...and I'm not stupid enough to spill the beans to the whole Internet about where I'm living. But its a townhouse... I'm really happy! I've never even been inside the place or even seen a picture, but I'm just glad that we have a place. Its been really really really hard trying to find a place that would let us have Kitsy in WV.

I guess here in NC there is a lot more competition in the rental property/apartment area so places HAVE to allow you to have animals. In WV very very few places will let you have pets. We have to pay for her at the place we are staying..but at least we didn't have to sneak her in!

The crazy thing is that Jesse had been calling this place for months and they had no openings! Then...he called, I think it was last Saturday, and the lady said, "Funny that you would call now because just an hour ago a tenant told me that he had to move out by July 1st" God is so good to us!

In this complex the back buildings are really squeezed in there... I mean tight. It makes me feel really claustrophobic! So Jesse was worried about getting our huge 26 foot truck back in there. So he asked the lady where our apartment would be. She says... "It's unit number 3801. Its in the front on the end" Its actually one of the best (if not THE best) townhouse in the complex!!! We feel very blessed!

The lady who owns the complex called Jesse back and asked if we needed to move in any sooner than the 1st. We really needed to unload the truck on the Jesse told her that we could move in on the 30th if that would be possible and that she could prorate the rent for that one day. To that she says, "Oh that won't be necessary" AGAIN... blessed!

I have no idea what God is trying to do to us, having us sell our house, move away, and then come all the way back after just 6 short months... but whatever His plans are..He has been with us for every step. I don't think ANY of the small, everyday miracles are just coincidences. God has always been good to me.

I can't believe I haven't blogged for 2 days!!

I'm slacking! I haven't even been busy. oh well, I know you all aren't dying to hear from me or anything.

On Wednesday and Thursday I went to Cracker Barrel...and we were actually kinda busy. I'm not sure why but it might be because the weather cooled down a touch and because Wednesday was the first day that school was out. So anyway... I was glad we were busy because the time went by quickly.

On Wednesday night Jesse and I watched Juno. I loved it and laughed my butt off.

Nothing else of any interest has happened....

Today Brian visited us... He and Jesse went to play basketball and tennis while I ran on the treadmill. I ran 5.2 miles. I had got sick of running but now I'm getting into it again. I have been running at 7 mph or higher and I've been running further.

After Brian left Jesse and I went to the pool for a bit..and then we went to Cracker Barrel and had an early dinner.

I needed a "free day" A free day is what Jesse and I call it when we are dieting and for one day we can eat whatever we want. Typically I don't have any problem pigging out....but today I had to tell myself over and over that it was OK to eat what I wanted...just for one meal. I still had a really hard time letting go. We had a "gold card" from Cracker Barrel. (a "gold card" gets you 2 free drinks, 2 free meals, and 2 free of course, to eat all HAVE to pig out)

I ordered a bowl of chicken tortilla soup for a starter....a grilled chicken fiesta salad with extra salsa and no salsa-ranch (the buttermilk ranch at CB has 29 grams of fat in 2 tbsp!!)....a slice of strawberry icebox pie....and I washed it all down with a real Coke!! I'm wishing I would have ordered a Diet! haha!

Before CB all I had to eat was a large peach and a bowl (.75 cup) of Strawberry Yogurt Burst Cheerios in (1/2 C.) 1% milk..... After CB I haven't had anything to eat.

In my best estimation, using, I ate between 1700 and 1900 calories today.... Not too bad really. I usually try to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories a day. Its just crazy that all but 256 of my calories came from one meal! That just goes to show you how unhealthy eating out really is!! Scary... cause all I had was soup and salad with no dressing! (well...and a dessert and a coke..hahaha) But... there are SO many people who eat like that all the time and think they are doing ok.

ok ok ok... I know I'm driving you all crazy with all this calorie talk...but it is what occupies my brain about 75% of the time. I have a sickness!! ha!

beep beep back up bikini

So... Today I went to work at Cracker Barrel. I can't sub anymore cause school is officially over. It was a good day today at the Barrel...meaning, I didn't hate being there. But business was pretty slow and I didn't make much money.

After work I ran on the treadmill. I ran for more than 4 miles and I walked a bunch, like 2 miles... I was busy watching Dr Phil and Oprah (Dr Oz was on there and I love Dr. Oz!) and Jesse and Kitsy were both I just kept on walking. I went altogether 6.2 miles.

After that I took a shower and Jesse and I returned my bikini that I bought yesterday to Target. He looked at the bikinis there and didn't like any of them. He's too picky. Oh well, I probably shouldn't be letting "her" out anyway. hahaha.. only tankinis for me!!

We also went to Shoe Carnival... I was looking for new running shoes. I really really need some new ones. Mine are TERRIBLE..and so old. I can't remember for sure but I think my Mom bought mine for me for my 20th birthday. Yeah, and I'm 26.5

This is what mine look like....

I like these

my long weekend... ;o)

I have been enjoying my long weekend. On Saturday I woke up early and worked out with my Self; Sculpt Sexy Legs Fast DVD. It kills me!!

Then.. Jesse and I went to the pool. It was, again, really really HOT!!

Saturday night I can't even remember what happened. Thats why I try to blog everyday..cause otherwise I can't remember. I know that I ran 5.75 miles that night on the treadmill.

Sunday was a long, kinda boring day. I made cabbage rolls in the slow cooker, which I liked a lot. I'm thinking that the next time I make it I may just make it a casserole or something.

We also went to the pool again. I did my Self DVD again...blah, blah.

The stupid NBA finals were on and I had absolutely NOTHING to do because I had finished reading my book, Honeymoon (by James Patterson) the night before. (It was really good....a little dirty and dark, but good)

but anyway..back to the basketball game. I really hate basketball...I wanted to blog, but Jesse was hogging "HIS" computer...which pissed me off. So I pouted and ended up taking a 2 hour nap from about 9:30 to 11:30pm. So If I'm not blogging as much as I used to... you know who to blame!

There were no sub jobs to be had for today... I guess because they only have 2 days left.

So.. I had a long weekend! Today I woke up and did my Jillian Michael's DVD (Level one and Level 2) Then we went to the pool. There was only one other lady there with us. It was actually quiet and relaxing. Usually there are brats screaming & splashing everywhere.

After the pool I took a shower and went shopping. I decided to try on some bikinis at Target. I was so happy trying them on!! I actually looked pretty good in a 'kini!! BUT...when I got home and showed Jesse he said it was too small and made me feel pretty crappy. :( So, I gotta take it back to Target soon.

Now... I guess I'm going to run on the treadmill a bit. I don't have anything else to do.

Tomorrow I gotta be at Cracker Barrel 9:30 to 2:30. BOOOO!

joke of a job

My job working with LD kids was a joke. I don't know why I even needed to be there...but all the better for me I guess. I couldn't even know which students I was there to help..haha. Its confidential! I only went to 2 classes. One was watching a movie and eating snacks. I poured soda and passed out potato chips and cheese puffs. The 2nd class was taking a vocab test so I just say there and did nothing.

After school Jesse and I went to the pool where I got a little sun!! I think we're gonna go swimming tomorrow morning too. Its supposed to be 97 degrees here tomorrow!!

I didn't work out today. I can't even remember the last time I didn't I guess I was due for a day of rest.

I started packing today. I got about 5 pretty large boxes packed up. My kitchen decorations are pretty much gone..and a lot of my other decorations too. It looks all bare in here now and I don't like it.

Thursday, June 5, 2008

Today was a sweltering 94 degrees here in Winston. It was a good day for me and Jesse to go to the pool. I didn't wear any sunscreen (except for my face where I ALWAYS wear sunscreen) and I didn't get burned at all. I've been trying to gradually work up a tan and its worked well so far. I only got a little burned that one day.

I went to Cracker Barrel today. It was actually a good day ( I say day, but it was really just around 4 hours) that was busy and went by quickly. I was in the smoking section and I made some pretty good tips. I busted out over 50 bucks.

After work...went to the pool and worked out... which is quickly becoming our usual routine. I did level 1 and level 2 of my Jillian Michael's DVD and it still kicks my butt.

Jesse grilled chicken for dinner. He makes the absolute best grilled chicken that I've ever eaten!! It was so good.

Of course I watched So You Think You Can Dance...and they picked the top 20 tonight. I'm looking forward to next week when they start the real competition.

Tomorrow I'm going to a middle school that's only a 5 minute drive (as a matter of fact, I can almost see it out my window) and I'm going to be subbing for a Learning Disabled teacher...she's not LD, but... she teaches LD know what I mean! It shouldn't be too bad because shes always in another teachers classroom. Which should mean that I'll mostly stand around and do nothing.... the hardest part of my day will hopefully be finding the correct classroom!

Well...gotta go blow dry my hair.

love me some whopper jrs

This morning...I had to wake up and go to Cracker Barrel, which sucked today. I'm really glad I only have 3 more hours of that place until Tuesday.

I was supposed to get off work at 2 and then I have to do my sidework and silverware. Well I got a table at around 1:50...two really (I'm going to put this as nicely as possible!) obese people. One lady was in a wheelchair for (as far as I could tell) no other reason but that she was so large. They ordered an appetizer....which at Cracker Barrel doesn't usually happen. In fact, most employees at Cracker Barrel don't even know that Cracker Barrel has a "Cheese and Cracker Plate" available. Oh, but these people...they knew about it! So anyway...after their meal and about 5 refills a piece they just wanted to sit and sit. THEN...when they finally did get up... The guy pushed the woman around the retail store for about 20 minutes before they payed their bill.

In case you don't know.... your waitress can't leave until you do...and they can't clock out until you pay your bill. So anyway.. I was there until after 3 just standing around, waiting, wasting my time.

After work Jesse and I went to the pool. It was really hot and I even fell asleep out there today for few minutes, but I don't think I got very much sun. The pool water felt MUCH better today, but of course it was over 90 degrees.

After the pool I ran on the treadmill for awhile (4 miles) and watched some more How I Met Your Mother... LOVE THAT SHOW!!

Then I showered and Jesse and I made a quick run to the library and to Burger King where I got a Whopper Jr. no cheese, no fav! and it only has 290 calories.

Right now I'm watching So You Think You Can Dance!! Ok, I think Jesse wants the computer now...

crazy sub day yesterday

So... I actually missed a day of blogging yesterday. I was very busy all day long.

I went to Northwest Middle School to sub for a science teacher. When I got look around the room told me that the teacher was a SLOB. There were piles of unorganzed paper laying on her desk, on the counters, on tables, and even on the floor. I looked everywhere for sub plans with no luck. So I went over to the teacher next door (since it was middle school the teachers are on teams) who was my teacher's teammate. She looked around and didn't find anything either. So, she tried to call the teacher with no luck. So.. she said the VP would be down to help me (the room was in the basement) Then she came back to tell me that the VP wasn't coming.

So what did I do????
Another 8th grade teacher send me an assignment. She told me to have the students write a story about "Timmy the Chromatin" who is about to undergo mitosis. Sounds ok, right? Well I thought so until the 1st group of students had no idea what mitosis or chromatin even was!! I got out their text books and there was nothing about mitosis even in there!! So I wrote a note to that other 8th grade science teacher and asked if she could send down some texts with Mitosis info in them. She did, so the 2nd group of students did much better.

When I got home from school Jesse and I went to the pool for a little while. It was REALLY hot and the sun felt like it was blazing, but the pool water was kinda cold.

Jesse spent the whole day yesterday helping Lester pack all his stuff into a moving truck. Lester was just pulling out of the parking lot when I got home from school around 2:30. So the Conn's are gone now.

Jesse is so depressed that Lester is gone. He lost his sports buddy. He's been moping around since he left.

Anyway...last night I worked out. I ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill and then did Level 2 of my Jillian Michael's DVD. Afterwards, we had dinner and then Jesse and I went to Walmart. I can't remember what time we got home, but by the time I was finished with shopping and putting the groceries away I WAS DOG TIRED!! So I went straight to bed while Jesse watched the Stanley Cup Finals.
Today wasnt as interesting.....I went to the Barrel....came home....worked out (level 1 & 3 of Jillian)...cooked dinner...and thats all.

i'll be back

I was busy yesterday so I didn't get to post. I'll write about it later! For now, gotta go to Cracker Barrel... ick

Sunday, June 1, 2008

ahhhhh, sunday....

Today was a great relaxing day!

I woke up and we watched the live Maranatha broadcast online. Then I decided I wanted to go to the I did for over and hour. I've been reading James Patterson's book Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas. I started it yesterday and I'm almost done! I guess that means its good!

I felt like I might be getting too much sun, so I went inside.

Then I did two of my Jillian Michael's workouts. There are 3 workouts on that DVD and they are 20 minutes each. You start with Level one and then progress to Level three. You are supposed to do one a day. Yesterday and today I did both levels one and two. It kicks my butt!!

After that I watched 2 episodes of How I Met Your Mother on DVD. Since then I've been doing laundry and cleaning up the house a bit. I'm getting ready to cook dinner...Jesse and I are having Oven-Fried Chicken Thighs with baked beans and sauteed onions & mushrooms! He's cutting the onions and cleaning the mushrooms as I type.

I'm still trying to find a job for tomorrow with no luck!!

still counting calories....
