Hello everyone!  I know I don't get on here to much anymore... I just have so much going on that it gets crazy... but I do want to post a pic of me in a hat that I just crocheted from a blog I found!  It is called Crochet Chiq !  and she had a little crochet along going for a Facebook group called Fiber Minds!  I just took some of my scraps and crocheted it!!  I figured that I could wear it for Halloween!!!  Love it!!!  And I think I am going to get some super cute yarn and make one for me to wear out in public lol

So... Like I said I super love it!  Probably hard to see it but it is great and cute and I just love it!!!  Ok  I have to say it one more time!!!  I love it!!

Long time no post

Hello everyone... it has been a while since I have posted... I stepped back and took a look at my life... I got a job... and I quit that job... not because I couldn't handle it but they didn't pay enough for me to do what they were asking of me.
And of course I got my puppy and I have been trying to train that puppy lol... but it isn't going as well as hoped.  Another thing I have been doing is trying to lose weight... I have lost 15 pounds in a month and this morning I called and made an appointment with a Medical Weight Loss Clinic.  I really want to lose this weight and start actually being able to run.  What if I could actually run in a 5 or 10 k run... a marathon....  I want to do this... but for some reason I just can't keep on track...  especially with food... I just want to eat all the time... it is like my stomach is a never ending black hole.  Then I start to board eat when I am not doing anything... so then I think... really Alannah....  why are you not doing anything... why don't you just jump on the treadmill when you are board.... bbbblllllllaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh know clue what is wrong with me!!!!  

On a happy note I finished a vest I was crocheting... Pictures coming soon... I will be wearing it today when I go to the appointment at the Medical Weight Loss Clinic.... Maybe it will bring me luck!!!!

Yes we will miss her

Sorry everyone about not posting a lot lately... my great grandma died on Monday March 26, 2012 on her 93rd birthday.

She was at her home in Florida... she just didn't feel well and went to lay down to take a nap and didn't wake up... she wasn't sick or anything like that... it was just her time.

Last year about 8 days after his birthday my great grandfather had died.  My family figured that my grandma thought her birthday party (which had been done the night before her birthday... this is the the pic)  was very dull and went to party with the love of her life... my great grandpa.

I can just picture my great grandpa coming down and holding out his hand and saying happy birthday to my great grandma and them walking side by side to the heavenly father....

it was a beautiful thought.... and her passing... although we will miss her... was a beautiful passing... and it is how I would love to leave this world

just some stuff on my mind

I really do want to lose weight... grrrr.... but for some reason I can't get into doing it... I just dont have the energy to get up and do it... then you know i get embarrassed when my husband is around... I just can't do it in front of him!!!

But I am going to just suck it up.  Yesterday I went and talked to a guy about volunteering at the animal shelter...  that can help me loose weight and maybe help out with the depression I have been dealing with... grrrrr... I will figure it out because i want it bad enough!

in other news I don't know if i have posted it on here but my little man now can walk!!!  It makes me sooo happy!!!  but now he is into everything lol.  and my daughter can read now!!!  and she is reading like crazy!  anything she can get her hands on!

J.R. Ward is awesome!!!!

Soooo... the books I have been reading lately are the novels called The Black Dagger Brotherhood, they are written by J.R. Ward... She is AWESOME!!!!  I love these books soooooo much!!!!

So the book I put on here is actually about my favorite brother in the Brotherhood... Zsadist... he is sooo my fav... ever since the first time I read about him in the first book I fell in love with him... I guess that says a lot about who I am....

But I love these books!  They have me emotionally wrapped into their lovely bindings.
