What I am about to share with you is not for the faint of heart! Especially for those dads out there stopping by Moms of Faith, well… you may just want to keep on surfing by this story. For you see, this is only something we moms will understand. It is for all of us of the female persuasion that have been so totally and completely embarrassed by our children that we are ready to hide. It is embarrassment that goes straight to utter humiliation, right to the point of shameful existence beyond recognition. On second thought, maybe everyone has been the center of their offspring’s antics? So, stick around! For me, it was a lovely family dinner at one of our favorite finds: Petrucci’s Restaurant! Our family LOVES the oven fired pizza there. And, on Thursdays, they have an awesome “special” where you can buy one individual pizza and get the next one for ½ price! Now, that’s a deal!

What you are about to read is not for the faint of heart. In fact, you may want to periodically check over your shoulder for company. You know the kind: the little eyes that like to peer over your shoulder while you are reading stories online. “Mom! What are you reading? Is that Facebook… again?!” Especially in the Hott House! It happens--all. the. time. The second I fire-up my laptop, someone comes along to cuddle up and read along with me. Needless to say, I don’t stay on MSN for long; nor even my own blog, for that matter. 99% of the time, I am persuaded to see what fashions are available at Justice, play Poptropica, or shop for Transformers on Amazon. Yikes! It never ends! So, if this happens at your house too, just log off now and never mind finishing this post. Rather, due to the content of this post, sneak back in the wee hours of the morning and meet me here. We’ll finish then! Ahhhhh! Are you back?

Blissdom, Clothes, Business Cards and PURPLE World??
Blissdom You may have read that I am going to Blissdom to represent Moms of Faith this year. If not, you can read it here. Anyway, I have been preparing for our trip over the past two weeks. I have been preparing my body since I signed up to go in October! LOL! I am very excited about all that I will learn, who I will meet, and what this whole experience will do to better Moms of Faith...and me! I will be sure to share all of my experiences along the way... Clothes I have lost 26.5 pounds as of today. When I began my journey in October 2010, I had a very clear goal to not be "the fat one." I did not want to go meet people and feel like Petunia pig! LOL! So, I have been working hard and am happier every time I get on the scale. However, I still have a ways to go to reach my official goal. I want to be be pre-second-child weight by my next birthday (March 2011). I have roughly 25 pounds to get there... Now, since I am going to Blissdom. I do need clothes. Nothing crazy...just … [Read more...]
