TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

30 Days Of Gratitude....Day 1

I love this idea.....to each day post something that I am grateful for.  Because let's face it, life with 3 kiddos gets crazy and sometimes it is easy to lose sight of what I am thankful for. 

So here it goes..........day 1.

Today I am especially grateful for Hannah.  She turned 12 today.

I really thought we were destined to not have children.  6 years into our marriage, she was a huge blessing/miracle/surprise.  I had honestly thought that perhaps we were not meant to have our own biological children.  And that was okay with me.  I knew that somewhere there was a child that was meant to be in my arms. 

Then I found out I was pregnant and Kevin and I couldn't have been any happier.

And on Halloween of 2000 she decided she may want to come join us.

After 32 hours of labor and little to no progression Hannah was taken C-section.  She was tiny (just right at 5 lbs.) and perfectly pink.

With her arrival my whole world changed.

So today I celebrate her 12th birthday and remind myself that I am truly grateful for being her mother.

Happy 12th Birthday Hannah Banana!!!!


  1. I always love your posts and I am totally going to do this exercise in Gratitude with you. I think that after 30 days of blogging and being able to find something each day to be Thankful/Grateful for will be helpful in my journey. Thanks Ms B - I am grateful for finding your blog!

  2. Great post. Happy Birthday Hannah.

    I saw a friend of mine post about the gratitude thing. I like it.


  3. Love the gratitude posting idea!
