I Wanna Dance With Somebody is seriously, like THE best song ever!

I hope everyone's been enjoying this gorgeous weekend. I have steadily been trying to get my "tan on" and think I have somewhat succeeded. I also downloaded some new tunes to the ipod, and I just have to say, Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits is the junk. I have set a new record this weekend on the treadmill because of this very fact: I worked out 3 days in a row! Whoa. Yeah, I'm totally blown away myself. Note to self: keep good music on the ipod and the flat tummy will come.....this would also include sticking to a diet plan which I haven't been so great at the past few days. When your weekend diet consists of Corona Lights, Totinos Pizza, and Potato Salad it's time to reel it in. Yeah. Which leads me to my next thought......

This evening's menu should be a doozy. In honor of the Hill's finale and MTV Movie Awards I'm having the girls over and snackages will include: meatballs, chicken wings, buffalo chicken dip (please, Kik's), and wine. Lerve. We're so healthy. Although some of my blogger friends have expressed their lack of concern/care for anything celebrity (which is okay) I am the exact opposite. Sorry. I love celebrities and the crazy train they ride everyday. Pure entertainment, folks. So, as you can imagine, I am super-pumped about the MTV Awards show tonight. It's an event in the Mosely home. My husband is OVER it and I'm a dork. Hehe.

We leave for Biloxi Tuesday and I am looking so forward to it. I have never gambled before so I'm pretty excited. Adam's real scared.......

Feeling gooood......

Today my first day of vacation officially began. Yay! I am so happy to have 10 days off (yes, I'm including weekends) and it couldn't come at a better time. Time to get away and recuperate. All I want to do is veg out by the pool, with a cold beverage, my ipod, and a good book and get my "tan on." We don't leave for Biloxi until next Tuesday, but I intend to start vacationing immediately. June is such a busy month for us so I'm going to soak up the laziness as much as I can while I can!

In other exciting news, I read today that there is going to be a remake of the movie, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Holy shiz! Love it. Do ya'll remember that movie? You know, the movie that had Sarah Jessica, Helen Hunt, Shannen Doherty, the cute boyfriend that could dance his sleeveless tank-top ass off?? That's it. Probably one of my fave movies of all time. Couldn't be more excited about this news. I wonder if they're casting extras......hmmmmmm........

As a side note, I broke out the bikini today. I've only wore the tankini for a couple of weeks, but I just can't do it anymore, friends! This white stomach needs a tan! I know there's some gorgeous abs beneath this flab.....I will find them one day. ;)

Worn Out

Oh my dear God. I am so happy this day is over with. I am exhausted both physically and mentally. I have a bottle of Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon in the kitchen waiting on me, and it's about to be open. I have been so incredibly busy today that I haven't had time to sit and appreciate that tomorrow is basically my last day of work for awhile. I get off at noon Friday and vacay begins! Could not come at a better time.......

So, I've got to bring up the fact that New Moon spoiler pics have been released today and boyfriend is looking HAWT. I mean, what am I to do with myself until this movie comes out??? So effing' excited.

As far as celebrity gossip goes right now, here's my take:
  • Kris Allen won. There's nothing else to say, but that he won. Yes, Adam Lambert was fantastic......but Kris Allen won. Move on. Adam Lambert already has and is back dressing like a drag queen (hehe-kidding!)
  • Jon & Kate are over. Jon cheated. Kate's not nice (to put it mildly). Is that a good reason? No, cheating is never the answer. But, both of these people need to give it up and focus on their 8 precious children. Over it!
  • Melissa Joan Hart looks fantastic. You go girl!
  • I kinda want to start watching The Hills again since Kristen Cavallari is back. No, I never liked her that much, but she brings the drama. Love it!
  • Tori & Dean are back- yay!!!!
  • And most importantly.........the MTV VMA's come on Sunday night and lover will be there. Red carpet coverage to follow........
Have a good night, everyone!! Off to soak myself in a hot bubble bath!

Wardrobe Malfunction

Something interesting happened to me today at work. It’s pretty darn hilarious, as a matter of fact. Let me preface this by saying, sometimes when washing clothes, underwear, etc. I throw items in the dryer without going through and separating them like I should (this is mainly when I’m feeling lazy). So, as I was washing and drying clothes Sunday I took a big load and plopped them into the dryer without giving it a second look. Cut to as I am folding clothes last night I see that I threw my favorite bra into the dryer, instead of letting it air dry like I normally do. Anyway, so I go to work this morning (wearing my favorite bra) and am going about my business, when SPLIT! My bra broke. Seriously, the bra is broken. The girls came out for a visit. No, I don’t wear those bras that fasten in the front (I can’t stand them!). The brassiere is broken. I had to leave work and go back home- thank God I live a little over five minutes away! Normally, the bra breaking apart would lead me to having a slight depression about putting on the LB’s, but I know that can’t be it. I have been strictly sticking to Weight Watchers (I mean, it’s so strict that I went to Olive Garden for lunch yesterday and ordered the soup, salad, and bread sticks as my entree-no seafood alfredo for me!). I am blaming the wardrobe malfunction on my dryer. Let’s just say it shrank……it better have anyway.

So, my Memorial Day holiday was amazingly great. I spent the afternoon with my mom and got to see two of my favorite people in the world, Elizabeth and Michelle. I had not seen Michelle in years, and I just have to say that you know a friendship is a true friendship when you can see someone for the first time in forever, and it feels like you just talked to them the day before. Elizabeth, I am going to miss you while you’re in Europe living it up. Have fun and drink plenty of wine for me. Love you both!

I have a short week this week- yay! Then, it’s off to Biloxi a week from today- woohoo!!! So ready for a vacation. Hope everyone had a great (and long) weekend!

Sunday, May 24, 2009

I'm sleepy.....

Hope everyone has had a great Memorial Day weekend so far! I am in Griffin spending the night. I figured I'd spend the holiday with my mom while honoring my dad and all of the other brave men and women that serve our country every day. We're getting pedicures and going shopping. Counting down the days until we are family vacaying it up in Biloxi. Dreading saying goodbye to my dad.........

The Pre-Memorial day shindig at our friends house turned out to be a great time, yesterday! The sun actually came out for a couple of hours and I got somewhat of a tan. I was, however, in the bed by 8 pm that night. Between the Pina Coladas, Strawberry Daquiris, Watermelon-Vodka boat, I was in sleepyland by 8:30. I know, I'm such a party animal. Hehe.

All I've got to say is thank God for short weeks.

Oh yeah, the birthday is exactly 17 days away. Woot Woot!

Saturday, May 23, 2009

The sun will come out.......tomorrow??

Happy Saturday, friends! I am sitting here in my bathing suit, just put a pitcher of frozen margaritas in our cooler, and wondering if I need to wear a long-sleeve shirt over my Capri's because it's what, 68 degrees outside. WTF?? It's Memorial Day weekend!! Our friends, Laura and Brian, are having a Pre-Memorial Day shindig by their pool today and I am so sad that the sun has not shown it's face.......don't think it's going to for a few days. Boo. Oh well, I didn't get a new black tankini (Old Navy, folks) for it to just sit inside my underwear drawer. I am getting a tan today, dammit. Wish me luck!

As a side note, I've lost 3 pounds so far!! Woohoo! Weight Watchers is working.......or maybe it's just water weight. Hehe. Whatev. Loving it.

More later........

Friday, May 22, 2009

Oops, I did it again........

Okay, so I know I said no more Rpatz coverage for the week, but I had to post this video!

He's so yummy. It also doesn't hurt that Joshua Jackson, and Josh Hartnett are also in this video. I'm just sayin'.........

I promise a more substantial post later on today.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Well, well, well, look who I found!

Okay, I swear this is the last Rpatz post for the week. He's just looking too damn hot in France right now. I want to go to Cannes!!!

Crazy, busy day today. I'm exhausted. Off to fix an egg salad sandwich and a glass of wine. Such a great combo, huh?


Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Anyone wanna go to Cannes?? Rpatz is there……..

This weather is seriously confusing me. I mean, one day it’s hot as hell and 98 degrees. The next day it’s raining and in the 50’s. WTF? Since today is so sunny and gorgeous (despite the mega-wind that keeps pushing strands of hair into my lip gloss), my brain has already declared that the holiday weekend starts NOW. Too bad that the next three days are going to be insane…….oh well, I think So You Think You Can Dance comes back on Thursday- hell yes.

Have all my Twilight peeps seen the New Moon poster?? If not, here it is.

Hot damn! LOVE IT! Just the sight of boyfriend makes me so happy. He’s delicious.

I can proudly say that I have now stuck with Weight Watchers for exactly a week now! Friends, I have not dedicated myself like this to Weight Watchers since 2001 when I became OBSESSED with the program and became obnoxiously psycho about food. I just hope I can stick to this plan. It would really be nice to lose 10-15 LB’s. I haven’t weighed in yet; that white Fred’s scale scares the shit out of me. Judgment day is Saturday…..we’ll see then.

BTW, is there anyone out there who is a Real Housewives fan? If so, have you started watching the new season in New Jersey? Oh my dear God. This show is going to be insane. I love it! My sweet mother (Mika) and father-in-law (Steve) were at the house visiting with us Sunday and I happened to have the Real Housewives of NYC Reunion Show on. Mika was disturbed. She said “Hayley, do people really act like this?” (As a side note- Mika is Japanese and has the cutest accent), I said “yep, and it makes for good TV.” Can’t wait for more episodes.

Sorry this blog is all over the place. As you can see, I have nothing of extreme importance going on in my life right now. My dad leaves in 2 ½ weeks for a war zone so I’ll pretty much take any dramatic, over-the-top, crazy-ass television show to get my mind off of the more serious things. Between vacay in two weeks, and birthday (the big 2-7) in three weeks I’m hanging by a string.

Toodles for now!

Monday, May 18, 2009


Well, it's official........I'm going to Grad School!!! Woohoo!!!! I got my acceptance today and I couldn't be more excited. I am going back in January for my Master's in Special Education at Georgia College and State University. It's actually called an MAT program, and that basically means I would be working towards my Master's while teaching. Thank God. So excited. The career goals finally seem to be falling into place. Yay!

Not much else to post on today, friends. I have a crazy week ahead of me (Thank God it's Memorial Day weekend). My boss will be out of town so that leaves me running things around the office. Vacay is two weeks away and I couldn't be more excited. I am reading Bethany Frankel's book Naturally Thin and I have to say, it's pretty darn good. She is pretty much telling you how to eat without dieting. However, I am sticking with Weight Watchers. Maybe the bikini dream for Summer 2009 isn't so far-fetched........guess we'll see.

Gooooooood Morning!

Perez just posted a photo album of nothing, but Rpatz. My Monday just got better.


Saturday, May 16, 2009


You know your husband is still crazy about you if he names a video game "sorceress" after you. Hehe. I'm not making this up, I swear. Adam would actually kill me if he knew I was on here blogging about this. He even said, "Baby, if you get on that blog thing and talk about this, I swear I'm gonna be so mad. I mean, I will rename the sorceress and everything." Haha! How could I keep this to myself, friends? Honestly, I don't think I was supposed to find out about this cute little tidbit. I was walking out the door to go to Smoothie King (as a side note, the "skinny" Pineapple Pleasure is the is the Banana Berry), and popped in the computer room to give Adam a smooch, and there I was in all my "sorceress" glory. Black leather, corset, thigh high boots, and boobies galore. They can really slut up some video game characters. He didn't mean for me to see my alter ego and got super embarrassed. Too freakin' cute. I love my sometimes geeky, but super hot hubby.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! It's rainy down here in Macon, but I don't really care. I kind've love it. I have been so, completely lazy today. Adam and I went out for Mexican last night with friends, I drank a margarita, came home, and was passed out asleep by 9 pm. I slept until 7 am this morning, got up, and snuggled on the couch with a cup of coffee, Sophie May, and Marley and Me (the movie). Good God, I will never watch that movie again. I haven't cried that hard since Romeo and Juliet (the Leo years). I was literally sobbing, holding Sophie, sobbing, hugging Adam, sobbing. Ridiculous. Never again.

Off to hang out with the in-laws. Fun times!

Friday, May 15, 2009


It is 1:26 and I am off for the day, folks. Yep. Real excited about this current status. Basically, starting today we get to leave at noon every other Friday until school starts back up in August. Super-pumped about this. My awesome boss said I could have today, and I said OKAY! Happiness. I am about to throw on a tankini (yes, a tankini- more on that from this post) and head over to Laura's to soak up some rays, and catch up on my stash of US Weekly's. Yes, today is a good day.

Did ya'll watch Grey's last night? Oh my gawd. I seriously cannot cry one more tear over that show! For those of you that watch Grey's, but still have yet to watch the season finale, WATCH IT. I won't offer any spoilers, but I will say that I have considered Prozac after the hot mess of a state that show left me in last night. Ready for So You Think You Can Dance, peeps!

I want to give a blog shout-out to one of my besties, Brooke. She is in Miami recovering from major heart surgery right now. Brooke- I love you and I'm so proud of you for being so brave! Can't wait to see you next week. Lerve!

This weekend should be pretty good. Adam's dad and step mom are in town from Winston-Salem, NC. We rarely get to see them, so when they're in town it's a big deal. I really am so lucky to have such great in-laws. Anyway, I am posting a picture of me, Mika (Adam's step-mom), and my sis-in-law, Rachel at Christmas dinner this past year. Mika is so freakin' precious.......and, she makes the world's best sushi.

Ready for some sun, folks! Praying for a J-Lo tan........wish me luck.

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I cannot believe I forgot this!!!!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear boyfriend..........
Happy Birthday to you!!!!

Happy (belated) birthday, Rpatz. I love you! ;)

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Woe is me Wednesday.......

Warning: I'm fixing to be a real drama queen.

So, today started out good. It's hump day, I am still reveling in the fact that this teacher dream just might happen, we have a not-so-busy weekend planned which makes this girl very happy, and I thought I looked pretty darn cute in my grey skirt, white button-down, and heels. Cut to 1:30 this afternoon: I get home from lunch (Adam is already home for the day), and dishes are piled up in the sink, the trash needs to be taken out, and Adam's dirty plate is on our coffee table. He, in the meantime, was showering. Well, shit hits the roof. Adam gets out of the shower and I go off on him. I then cleaned up the mess myself, and then left to go back to work early from lunch. Basically, to pass the time before I went back into the office, I sat in my car and did a People crossword puzzle while crying like an idiot. Once I got back into the office, I promptly went down to the snack machine and got the white-cheddar flavored popcorn and Coke Zero. What a nutritious lunch, huh? Adam later called and said that if I would have given him a chance to clean up (he had just gotten home and gotten in the shower at the time that I arrived for lunch break) all of the things that I made "such" a big deal over would have been taken care of. Whatev. Now, several hang-ups and screaming later we are a-okay. Marriage. It's just so fun. I'm drinking tonight.

BTW, does anyone know if Bethany Frankel's new book, "Naturally Thin" is any good? I'm considering making that purchase. I saw pictures of me today from the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, and let's just say I should have ran that race.........and continued running after the race was over. Not good, friends. Not good.

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

I wore brown shoes and a black cardigan today. What is up with that craziness??

Wow. Today has been a crazy, but good today. The good (well, more like GREAT) news is that……drum roll, please…….I passed the writing assessment to get into graduate school at Georgia College and State University!! Woohoo!!!!! I’m basically trying to get into a MAT (Master’s of Art in Teaching) program and passing that assessment was my first step. I'm so excited! I have literally had a perma-grin on my face all day. Yay!

Anyway, so I wore a black cardigan and brown heels today. WTF? Major fashion faux pas. I’ve been living on this side of crazy all day today. I’m so ready for vacay that I can’t function. We will be in Biloxi in exactly three weeks! What what! I’m going to be real out of control in those casinos. Adam’s already been talking to me about “how to gamble.” I'm like, “honey, what are you thinking?” All I want to do is sit at a slot machine in a hot dress, with a Sex on the Beach in my hand, and bank roll it. Yep, they need to be real scared.

I’m back on Weight Watchers…..uhhhhhh. I have pretty much used all of my “bonus points” today. I guess when you decide that you want some BK Ham Shots for breakfast and fried chicken for lunch you’re cutting it close. I seriously have Kardashian ass today. Oh well. I guess it’s me, the treadmill, and Lil Kim’s “Jump Off” tonight. Sooooo looking forward to it……..

Is it bad that I've worn my stretchy pants all weekend?

Happy Mother's Day! What a gorgeous day. I am in Griffin and have been here since Friday night. My sister and I am treating my mother to lunch as a thank you for being so (yes, I'm gonna say it) fabulous. I told Adam that technically, I am a mother to Sophie May so maybe I should get something special today. He just laughed and walked out of the room. So, I guess no flowers or cards for me. Maybe next year........ Oh and by the way, my dad won the husband of the year award today. He sent my mom chocolate-covered strawberries. How awesome is that?? And yes, I have totally killed two of them. Which leads me to my next thought.....

I have worn my VS stretchy pants all weekend!! This is not a good thing, friends. Flashback: Friday night, my mother and I go out to dinner. We get back to mom's house around 9 pm. Do I call friends to let them know I'm in town and do they want to meet up for a drink? No, I come home, put on the stretchy pants and read the latest edition of US Weekly (btw, Jon Gosselin so cheated- hate this because I'm a Jon & Kate fan myself). Saturday: friends and I wake up at the crack of dawn (5:30 AM....uhhhhh) to drive up to Atlanta for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. I feel proud of myself and very skinny after the race after walking 4 miles (I say 4 because it was at least a mile-long walk back to the car). Do I go out and rock a super cute and sexy dress and show off my super cute and sexy hubby? Nope. The stretchy pants come back on, the Thai food is delivered, The Best of the Eagles is playing on the Bose, and I am all settled in with a Madras. Life is good. Poor Adam. I think he really wants to burn the stretchy pants. Oh well.

I hope to post pics later on today of me and the girlfriends at the race. We had so much fun! I was so emotional during the race to watch all these brave women that have battled breast cancer cross that finish line. I'm not gonna lie, I probably cried like 5 times. To see men running in the race with signs on their backs that said "In memory of Mom." Wow. Tear. So amazing. I can't wait to be a part of this wonderful tradition every year. And hanging out with my best girlfriends- nothing can touch that. All in all, superb weekend. Now, if only I can wean myself off of the stretchy pants......

Friday, May 8, 2009

Early morning ahead

Happy Friday, everyone!! This weekend is already jam-packed and I am already tired.

A couple of thoughts for the weekend:
  • Did you see Grey's last night?? OMG!!! I'm still crying! If you're interested, check this out.
  • Feast your eyes on the new Captain Kirk..........I'm no Star Trek fan, but I might be watching to see this hottie!
Wish me luck in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure tomorrow! 5K here I come!

BTW, this is sooooo me tomorrow afternoon:

Haha! Hilarious.

Have a great Mother's Day weekend, friends!!

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Much better........

Today was a better day. Thank God. I really don't think I could have handled another bad day like yesterday. What is the saying? "When one door closes, a window opens", or something to that effect. I dunno, but I'm feeling better. Much, much better.....

Did ya'll watch AI last night? OMG- Adam rocked the house with "Whole Lotta Love" didn't he?? Wow. You know, I have been on the fence with him ever since the show started, but I have to say he won me over last night. I mean, anyone who's gonna sing "Zep" (as my oh so cool dad refers to Led Zeppelin- he pretty much ingrained the love of "Zep" into me at the age of seven) like Robert Plant deserves the AI crown. Dontcha' think? Lerve. I'm disappointed Matt Giraud and his hunky piano moves aren't there anymore, but oh well. I can always relive "Human Nature" through youtube.

Mother's Day is this weekend, friends. Surprisingly, I have already bought Mother's Day presents for the mom and the mom-in-law. I got their gifts at Ulta after work today, while a tornado was just a brewing outside. Of course this would be the day that I chose to wear my nice, khaki pants and brown flats to work. I was soaked when I left and not happy about it. But, I do have Mother's Day gifts and that is one less thing I have to worry about when I wake up Sunday morning. Yay. In honor of mom's day I am posting a picture of my mama, my sister, and myself on Easter:

This is like our favorite picture right now, because every one has their eyes open. Hehe!

BTW, I'm doing the Susan G Komen race in Atlanta this weekend. The following are the reasons why I am most excited about participating in this race:
  • I am walking for my grandmother, and all of my other friends and loved ones that are dealing/or have fought this horrible disease.
  • I get a super-cute pink t-shirt to wear (and ya'll know how much I love pink)!
  • I am eating nothing but bad shit all week. I'm talking Chick-fil-a, Burger King, Panera Bread, you name it because I will be walking it off (or planning to anyway) during the race- woohoo!!
I've got to go cook dinner for the hub, friends. Talk to you soon!

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Don't call it a comeback!

image courtesy of People thank you.

Just had to comment, ya'll. I mean, if you're gonna go to the Costume Institute Gala at the Met wouldn't you bring it like Miz Biel:

JT looking a bit nerdy, but that's okay.......

I'm done.

So, I had a bad day.

Today has been a bad day. I'm not going to sugarcoat it, because it's just been an all around bad day. I have never really talked about my blog disappearance almost two months ago. The hiatus only lasted a month, but to people that know me it felt like a year. I love my blog and I love blogging. I'm not going to go into all the details of why I stopped blogging during that time. Honestly, I have not had this bad a day since the day I had to delete the blog. Let's just say that today I realized that hard work does go unnoticed, and expectations fall short. I am disappointed.

Cinco de Mayo has not been so festive for me today, that is for sure. I still plan on having a margarita tonight, though. Hmmm.....maybe two. Hell, I think maybe the hubster and I need to go out for Cinco de Mayo. This day obviously isn't gonna get any better. I hope everyone else has enjoyed their Mexican holiday!! Here's to happier days tomorrow. Cheers!

Vacay is in 3 weeks. Lord, please let me make it.........

Monday, May 4, 2009

"What you gon do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?"

I'll tell you what I'm gonna do with all this "junk." Never take a spinning class again. Yep. Over it. In the words of my impossibly tiny co-worker, Diana, you feel a little violated after cycling. My derriere is aching in words that I cannot describe. Our teacher told us to go home and eat some "good" carbs to replenish all the blah, blah, blah....blah, blah, blah. I am now home eating a chocolate chip cookie from the Publix Deli and drinking a Coke Zero. Yep, so over it. I didn't realize how great my relationship was with the treadmill until today. Think I'll stick with what I know, peeps.

Time for a bubble bath. Catch you tomorrow!

Sunday, May 3, 2009

easy like Sunday morning..........

I am still in my pajamas and it's 2:11 on Sunday afternoon. Rut-roh. I'm not gonna lie- I love it. No worries, though. I'm about to hop in the shower and take a trip to Barnes and Noble. I need a good read. I cannot blame the laziness on a hangover, I don't have one. Thank God. I'm actually really surprised considering the fact that I drank a cheap bottle of White Zinfadel last night. Folks, I am not a White Zinfadel drinker, but I had a bottle in the fridge left over from the Purse Party, and I thought, why not? Fast-forward to Sunday afternoon, and I still have my Victoria Secret stretchy pants on. Time to get this booty in check.

Thanks everyone who commented on the bathing suit options! I began my swimsuit search at Kohl's yesterday. The "cute" pink one I posted Friday- not so much. More like trashtastic cuteness, if you get my drift. In my opinion, there wasn't much of a one-piece selection at Kohl's, which I'm surprised about considering all of the cute, fun, and stylish apparel that they carry. Hmmmmmm.......might check back with them later. I then made a trip to Dillard's (so should not have gone there). Yes, they had adorable bathing suits, and yes, their bathing suits were $65 and up. No thank you. I'm pretty positive I could get something just as cute at Marshall's for 20 bucks. I will probably be making a trip to Target this week, too. You can always count on some fantastic finds there. We'll see........

Tomorrow the new exercise regimen starts up! I have a spinning class tomorrow and Wednesday night after work which I'm super pumped about. Tuesday, Thursday's, and Friday's it's me and the treadmill at it again. I will drop 8 LB's by the end of May dammit. Wish me luck!

Friday, May 1, 2009

To do the one-piece, or not do the one-piece, that is the question.........

Friends, bathing suit season is here. And as excited as I am about sunshine, beaches, pretty tans, and sipping Cherry Limeade (diet of course) by the pool, I am not so excited about putting on the bikini. You see, the "diet" that I've been supposedly abiding by......not so much. This month I have pretty much eaten like I have the metabolism of a 12 year old girl. Yes, I will say that I've been stressed due to lots of different things, and we all know stress can contribute to overeating at times.........but, I am not one to turn down a Dairy Queen Butterfinger Blizzard when it's mentioned. So, the new goal is to lose 8 LB's by the end of the month and before the family trip to Biloxi. My smart mama booked a condo with our own private pool- hell yeah. I plan to purchase this Victoria Secret bikini when I am rocking a better bod:
Love the yellow. I'll totally look like the model wearing this: boobs and all! Haha.......

So, before my transformation into Marisa Miller (ha!), I want to get a really, really cute one-piece just to hide the tummy a bit. What do you think?? I've been scouring the web, and these are just a few of my adorable one-piece finds:
This one (on the right) is from the Candies line at Kohl's. I think it's super-cute and fun. Plus, it's pink. And ya'll know how much I love pink!

This one is a monokini from Dillard's. I dunno. Kinda cute? Kinda trashy? You be the judge. Probably would need to try it on to see.......

I LOVE this one. I actually think this one of my favorite. Loving the "zebra" look.

What do you think, blog friends?? I'm going shopping this weekend so I've gotta get some feedback!
