I do....Wait....No I Don't.....

I, (Bride/Groom), take you (Groom/Bride), to be my (wife/husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part..... Or until I decide I don't want to be married anymore....

I believe in marriage and what it stands for. I believe you should try to work out the issues you have between your husband or wife. But I also believe that if one partner is not willing to work then you should move on.

I have several friends that have either had to make the choice to end their marriages or had the choice made for them. Two of these friends had the same issue, their husbands were workaholics and neither husband was willing to work on their relationships. But one made the decision and the other had it made for her. Neither situation was easy I am sure.

She is about to be divorced in a few weeks...I am really sad about this. Yes I know it doesn't hav…

Just the way you are.....

Yesterday was my Sorority sister Bettiann's wedding. It was a lovely day and an even better evening. She was gorgeous and everything was breath taking.... and as I watched her and her new husband she looked so happy and like it was just them in the world, no one else around. It started me thinking about my wedding day....

That day I was the happiest I think I had ever been.. I had married my soul mate and the day went off with only minor issues... I have often thought about what I could have done different or compared it to others, only to make myself feel sad that it was not as beautiful or whatever. I have this tendency to let what other people do or think shape who I am or think I should be.

Every time I looked at them dancing I couldn't help myself from wishing I could have my day all over again. I want to be that happy again. But I have alot of working on my self before I can be that happy again. So I have decided for the millionth time to get off my ass and start worki…

Conifidence Coaching 101: For the ladies!

This is a repost from my awesome sorority sister Nic... Thought I'd share....



It baffles me when I see my girlfriends lacking confidence, always being self-critical; thinking they're fat, and obsessing about their looks. Get a clue, girlfriends, you are beautiful on the inside and that's what counts! Sure, looking good on the outside is an art, but if you don't radiate confidence from within, what's the point?

I can just hear you now... "But Nicole, it's easy for you to say because you're gorgeous!". Oh girls, you're so sweet. Really. Cut it out. Ok, just kidding... keep those compliments flowing. LOL! The truth is, as many of you remember, there was a time when my body was a hot mess. I was morbidly obese, and felt like shit about myself (largely due to the fact that I was in bad relationships and miserable). However, through it all, I always kept a positive outlook and knew that I was a great person and had a beautiful soul. I knew that people…

New Revelations

Ok, after reading a very dead on post from my awesome sorority sister Nicole about confidence and loving yourself.. I realized she was right. I have never been at all confident about myself. Unfortunately that is not something I will learn anytime soon, although I will try.

So on that note... I have decided for the billionth time to lose weight. I am not just doing it for me, I am doing it because I really want to get pregnant. I know I could be where I am now but I want to be at least under 200 before I even start trying. I am not getting younger and I am getting worried I may be running out of time....

So, I am not even sure how to start. Yes I know what you are thinking... eat better and exercise. I know that. But I can't stay motivated. I start out good but by like 9am it is all over. I have been a member of Olympus Gym since Feb of last year.. Have I been??? Nope. I have the Wii fit with several games. Have if used it??? Maybe once... I have all the tools just to lazy to use t…

My Many Men.......

I had a thought while sitting here watching the Habs/Flyers Game. Well it is on in the background..Steve is watching it. I always talk about all my fav men, (actors,sports figures and whoever else famous I might like) I wonder how many there really are... Well here is my list (in no particular order....) of as i call them Sexy Bitches....


~ Chad Durbin - Bullpen pitcher for the Phillies - I have an obsession with him. He is often my screen saver on any computer I may use. Steve has even told him that I want to have his kids, which by the way I have never said, I wouldn't mind tho....

~ Chris Wolstenholme the bassist for my new favorite band Muse. He is another one that is often my screen saver. I am totally obsessed with him. I have seen them 4 times in concert (have 2 more shows lined up)and each time when the concert is over I am horse from screaming for him. If you have seen the youtube video of the Philly Muse show we recorded you can hear me scream for him... lol

Hello Everyone.

Well since everyone is doing a blog, I figured I would too. Not really sure where to start... I guess I will share a little about me.
~I am 32 and have been married to my husband Steve for 7 years (as of next monday).
~We have a shih tzu Gracie who we love dearly. I fell in love with her the minute I saw her at a pet adoption at Petsmart. It broke my heart when I went to fill out the paperwork to adopt her and found out someone had beat me to it. But lucky for me that family did not work out and I got to adopt my best friend. I sometimes think I love her more than my husband... =)
~I am a 911 dispatcher and have been for 9 years. I would love to tell you where but due to privacy issues at my job I can't. Lets just say it is a big county in NOVA.
~I love my family and friends and spending time with all of them. But I wish I had a close friend I could tell anything to and be there for them anytime they would need me. I try to be a good friend as long as you are one back. Sometime…
