A new look!

So as you can see I have changed the look of the blog! I really like it, but am having some trouble finding a banner that I like that will go with the page. So if you are a creative person and would like to help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Since my last post, my wonderful hubby Hans celebrated his birthday! He turned 26 on Sunday. We had dinner at his parents house last Friday night with some family friends. We also had dinner with his parents on his birthday as it was Sunday and that is more of a family tradition to eat over on Sundays.

I not only felt like it was time for a change here, but also for me! I have been telling myself for the past 6+ months that it is time to get off my butt and start working out. I have more than lost my pregnancy weight (I only gained 4 lbs due to hyperemesis) but I still have the 40 or so pounds that I have put on since graduating high school 8 (OMG!) years ago. I have tried gym memberships in the past, weight watchers, curves, and most recently the wii fit. The problem is that I have no accountability and the couch ends up calling my name along with a bowl of ice-cream. So today I changed all that and went to a new gym that more specializes in you working with a personal trainer. It is expensive but totally worth getting me on the correct track and hopefully into shape and on my way to a healthier lifestyle. I know that it will be a tough challenge, but I am up for it! I will have Hans take a before picture of me and will make sure to post it along with some updates along the way.

Jacob is now completely walking all the time! He is getting so big and more independent everyday. He loves the chair that Oma (Diane) sent home with us last week. It is the chair that he always enjoyed playing on when over at her house. It is so hard to believe that in under a month they will be moved out of the state. :( We are so going to miss them (since it is Hans' parents) so much! Their house is starting to look so empty when I was there today. The only main room that is fully left to pack is their kitchen. I know that the closer that we get to their departure date the harder it is going to get for us. Diane realized when we were celebrating Hans birthday the other day that he was the first person to have a birthday in the house (his 3rd) and he will also be the last.

Ok well it is time for me to head to bed......I will try and get up some before pictures of me when I start with the personal trainer.
