Change Keeps A Comin

Wow, I was not kidding when I said this is a year of change!!! So much has been going on these past few days!!

On Saturday Mason started his first swimming lesson ever! He goes in the water a lot but I dont have a pool so its usually at the lake and thats not an easy place to teach someone how to swim! This session consists of 4 classes and I took him to this first, his daddy will be taking him to his 2nd and 3rd classes and I will be taking Mason to his final class. Im so excited to see the progress that he makes! When I set him next to the pool he was the ONLY one crying! I felt so bad but I knew I had to let him be. Boy was that tough! I was honestly getting frustrated watching him. He wouldn't blow bubbles in the water or put his head down and he was really scared. Granted it has been a few months since he has been in the water but I Know he can do it because he has done it before! So im hoping by the 4th class he will be a lot more comfortable in the water.

On Sunday my baby turned THREE!!!! Yes thats right people! THREE years old!! When did that happen? I dont think he had my permission to get older! Well anyways, we had his party at a gymnastic studio. He had such a ball and it was just perfect! I swear this child of mine has absolutely NO fear, whatsoever! I will post pics later of everything!

On Monday I signed up at Lifetime Fitness and I have not been to a gym since highschool! They have all the classes that I want to take and this place is sooo amazing! I cant wait to take Mason swimming here! I get off work at 4, the classes are at 4:30 and end at 5:30 and Masons daycare closes at 6:15! Its all perfect timing and within minutes from my work, the gym, and daycare. It could not have worked out more perfectly! I cant not wait to finally lose all this excess baggage and be back to where I want to be weight wise. Especially considering that we are going to DISNEYWORLD in just over a month and I want to look bangin in the photos!

And finally, this week I have decided to go forward with selling some amazing jewelry! Stella & Dot has been featured in many magazines and even on some tv shows and I am so excited for this new adventure! I will post more information after I have everything set up and ready to go!

I hope everyone is having a good week! This is one of the best weeks I have had in a LONG time and I sooooo needed this! You have no idea!

Back to the Grind

So yesterday was a much needed day off. Well technically it was not suppose to be a day off but I stayed home with Mason anyways. We went to the park and had such a great time! Its crazy how nice it was outside! I mean HELLO its January and in the 70s here! I hope this isnt some kind of sign of what Summer is going to be like. I cant handle the 100 degree weather very well! Anyways, Masons favorite part of the day was feeding the ducks!

Today it was time to get back to work, AND school! I am only taking one class this semester because of how busy I am going to be. Im taking Financial Accounting and just found out its a self paced class which is my favorite! Now if im ready for a test I can take it instead of having to wait for the test date.

I met a really good friend of mine for lunch today and I FINALLY got to meet her newest little man, Jacoby! He is already 7 weeks old and I cant believe it took so long for me to meet him! I hate that she doesnt live down the street anymore! It was so nice to see her and catch up!

I also just signed up Mason for swimming lessons starting this saturday!! I am beyond excited about this! My parents have a boat on Lake Levon and we go out every weekend during the summer. Im always so nervous about Mason in the water so it will be nice to be able to relax just a tiny bit more, and i mean TINY bit more! I had a nightmare a long time ago about Mason drowning so I get kinda freaked out when he is around water!

By the way.....Sunday my baby boy turns THREE!!!!!!!!!!!

Change Is A Coming

2010 is Definitely a year of change for me! And I could not be more excited or more ready! The first change is obviosuly this blog! I felt like the other layout was just too dark for me and I am not a dark person at all! I still havent found the perfect match for me yet but this will do for now! And I need to think of a cute blog name so any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

The Second change is Masons daycare. My sister is closing her daycare which is a huge bummer but totally understandable. I dont know about you guys but I sooo do not have the patience to handle several running screaming kids all day! So in two weeks Mason starts his new daycare. Its less than 10 mins from my work and is on 20 acres. There are three parks, one for each age group, and a pool! They do spanish and computer classes also! I am sooo excited about this change! Mason will do so amazing there I just know it!

And finally, the last change as of yet is my job!!!! I got promoted to a claims examiner! Now this is not something that I want to spend the rest of my life doing but hey Im taking one for the team! And when I say team I mean me and Mason! The pay is a lot better and now I will actually have work to do when I am at work! Right now I am a claims assistant and I am so bored at this position and need more of a challenge! (But if your looking for a job we have 2 opening for claims assistants so let me know). My company is awesome and I love the people in my office so Im happy I will get to stay here! We are getting a new client which is the account I will be working on along with 7 other examiners. In March they are flying us out to Charlotte, NC for a few days to meet with the big wigs and I can't wait! A FREE cheap! Does it get better than that?

Yup, 2010 is going to be a year of change!

Movie Mayhem

So this past weekend i took Mason to the movie theatre TWICE. And this was his First time ever to go! He did such a good job and made me one proud mama! On Saturday Me and my mom took Mason to see The Princess and the Frog. Im not brave enough to go by myself yet so I made my mom go with me! haha

They had the Chipmunks on display and Mason just HAD to get a picture with them. (These photos were taken on my new iPhone so they arent quite the best quality. And yes i said NEW iphone! Woohoo) Anyways back to the movies. On Sunday my dad and I took Mason and his cousin Zack to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. Unfortunately the Chipmunks werent on display anymore :( Oh well.
Arent they so cute together! Zack is such a cheeser and Mason was just loving having him with us. All in all it was a great weekend with my little man!

Wishful Wednesday...Hair

Wishful Wednesdays are back! Heres todays.....

'I wish' .... I had ___Gretchen's (Real Housewives of Orange County)____ hair/hairstyle!

Although she may not be my favorite person in this world I cant deny the fact that I think she is beautiful! What I wouldnt give for her hair! Its always perfect! Everytime I curl my hair no matter what I do it loses its curl within the hour!! And I have really thick hair but it always seems so flat! I want some volume!!! Any suggestions for me on how to get this look feel free to leave a comment!
