So, I've been thinking a lot about things that I'm doing in my life, big goals to accomplish in the next year, etc... and I'm wondering what everyone else is doing!!

I'm taking a HUGE road trip for over a month in the late spring/early summer from Baja California Mexico, Up the west coast on the 101, north through british columbia, across the yukon territory and into alaska - then back across and down into montana - driving all the way to a new city to live in for Grad school that will be starting in full force next fall. Big changes! I hope to do it as close to my goal weight as possible so that will be one less thing weighing heavily on my mind! Don't want to be the fat girl in a new city, new job and new school!! Plus - a month and a half in the car will be much nicer at 150lbs or so than 210!!

What's on everyone elses' plate?

I'm excited about moving from this state!!! I don't care if the hubby gets out of the Navy and joins the Army or Coast Guard. I just want out of this state!!! We're both counting down the days until we can leave, LOL!!!

Next week we'll be going to The House of Blues in Atlantic City to see BILLY IDOL!!!!! I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!

I'm also looking forward to spending Christmas with my cousins in Wisconsin. It's been a long time since we had a family Christmas. We really want to go to Arizona for New Years too. So I'm excited to see my bestie again.

I am finished with my Associates degree in December.

My husband is coming back from Afghanistan late December/ early January!!!!!!!! This is what I am the MOST excited about.

My husband and I are moving back to the west coast the spring of next year when his enlistment is finally over. We'll finally be close to our families again. New jobs, new school to start working on my bachelors, new life away from the military and I CAN'T WAIT!!!

I'll hopefully be at my goal weight by the time my husband gets back, so I'm looking forward to transitioning into maintenance and FINALLY getting some new clothes!!!

Zombie prom! It's in Philly at the end of this month. I'm going to be (slightly) smaller than I was last year which is a plus. Lol.

GonnaTurnHeads - your road trip sounds so exciting! I have been strangely obsessed with the Yukon territory since playing "The Yukon Trail" (spin-off of the Oregon Trail game, if you're unfamiliar with it) as a kid. What are you planning on doing there? Whatever it is, I'm sure that you'll have a wonderful time!


I just made a HUGE move, so I'm still sort of reveling in that. I'm really excited about the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights sometime soon, seeing my parents at Christmas, and (hopefully!) coming out of the winter months with a new rockin' body from all of the ice skating (and possibly cross-country skiing) I plan on doing.

I'm excited for Christmas so I can watch my 2 yr old grandbaby open her gifts. She's at a great age to communicate her excitement.

Hehe yeah it's pretty cool. I don't know if it was the same on form the show. This one is in Philly. I'd post a link but I can't because I'm too new of a member. But I think if you google Philly Zombie Crawl it will come up.

I attached a pic of me and the boyfriend dressed up for last year. I'll update with pics after this year. :)

I am excited to go back to my hometown in Argentina and be 60lbs lighter than when they saw me last, when I visited in 2007.

:cb:

(Yes, because when I went back to visit in 2007 I got asked if I was pregnant and things of that kind when I was just fat and that really sucks).
