So this is super retarded...but every year, I check to see if I can fit back in my dress...and the past 3 years, well lets just say I've been not so successful...lol....It fit this year!!! With a teeny tiny bit to spare! HAHAHA!!!! KICK ASS!!! Like my dear friend Carla said...next year it'll hopefully be an indecent picture...cause it'll be down around my ankles...due to not fitting..LMAO! That's not exactly what she said...but whatever...same thing...HAHAHAH!

God please watch over my Daddy....I really do enjoy having him around....
People always make fun of me for still making the kiddos their very own cakes, but I figure if they have to share a birthday, they shouldn't have to share a cake....
As you can see...Madison is my piggy, and Jaxon is my clean freak...lol...he asked for a spoon, shortly after this...lol
Here are the kiddos, with a few of their friends...we couldn't get them ALL wrangled up...lol...I mean seriously...what's more important??? a picture or swimming???? LOL!
Thanks to Christina, my puppies even got in on the party action!!! It was 104 degrees!! They were soooo hot! and in the words of Erika....they were true party animals!! HAHA!
Trixie opted to hide out for a bit, under the table...where all the kids were eating...lol...she's a GENIUS! LOL
Here's the loot! THANKS FRIENDS!!!!!
and this is my favorite pic from the party...lol...I love it...
It was the perfect day for a pool party! We have some of the greatest friends a person could EVER ask for! The boys enjoyed beer and the bbq. and the rest of us enjoyed it too! LOL! Or at least I know I did! HAHA!! Happy Birthday my sweet babies....until next year! i love you.

once again....kick ass.
Other kick ass news....we went shopping last night! I got an awesome new top! My treat for losing 42 lbs. At Torrid, I use to wear a 3! I tried on a 2 last night and it fit really really comfortable....but Chance made me buy a 1.....he wants it to fit when we go to Cabo! I came home and was bummed, because I just knew it wasn't going to fit at all....but guess what???? IT DID!!!! KICK ASS!!! So a 3 is a 22/24 and a 2 is a 18/20, and a 1 is a 14/16....all be it, it's tight...but dammit I can wear it!!! putting on a 14/16 3 months ago would have been a joke! Then we went on a mission to find some shorts...apparently fat people aren't supposed to wear shorts, but quite frankly....it's too damn hot to wear jeans or capris in the summer in Bakersfield....ugh....so I actually got to go to a normal department store and try on a pair of normal shorts....and they fit....WOW! I didn't buy them...lol...they just didn't look right...I never will understand why people make the waist big enough for fat people, but they won't make the thighs big enough....geez....I also tried on a really really cute dress....Christina has been up my booty about wearing a dress....she always looks so beautiful in dresses...I feel frumpy and not so great in them....so anyway...in her honor, I tried on the cutest floral party dress last night....and I picked up an 18 with a smug grin in my face....I took it to the dressing room, and because I'm lazy, I always just slide dresses on over my head...lol...who needs zippers right??? I just knew that thing wouldn't make it over my chest....and it did....then I just knew it wouldn't make it over my big ol' tummy....and IT DID!! And then it hung loosely.....LOOSE!! WOW!! So I could have easily of gotten a 16....holy crap...I haven't been a size 16 since right after I graduated high school!!! That was the best feeling in the world....lol....so off to Old Navy I go tonight!!! LOL! I'm feeling very motivated for things...including sewing!! So hopefully I'll have some new projects up soon....so many of my friends are sewing some of the cutest things, and they are motivating me!! Summer dresses are the bestest!!! take care and be blessed! til next time!
One more thing....thank you so much to all the people that leave comments here on my blog and just in everyday life...you all have no idea how much you've helped me through this process...THANK YOU!!!

I had to fire back on your comment to "Hypocrite"—Miss California does rock. Perez may not have agreed with her opinion. However, America was founded on tolerance of dissenting beliefs, not condemnation. I support gay marriage, but Perez's actions were intolerant and out of line, and for someone seeking acknowledgement of an ideal universally, it should not be at the cost of forcing down another person on the basis of their beliefs because you are empowered to do so at your discretion. I am certain he can relate to that feeling as an advocate of gay rights, and to exert that onto another person, that is hypocritical.
