New Obsessions

We have a few new obsessions in our life...

The first is a show called The Biggest Loser. After the first episode we were hanging out with our neighbors when they started to talk about it! It intrigued Brandon and I so we started to record the shows - but a few weeks of recording we still hadn't watched any episodes...well this past week we finally buckled down and watched the second episode...WOW are we hooked! We watched all the episodes (that were recorded) and caught up yesterday. :) We can't stand Tracey and seriously want her to get kicked off immediately! I don't know how she does it - but I want to punch her in the face everytime she opens her mouth...This show is so motivational though, since we watched the first episode Brandon has started to wake up early and go walking/sprinting while I get ready for work. It's made me want to watch less t.v. when I get home in the afternoons and focus on making our home a better place. Brandon has already lost 5 pounds and I am so proud of him, I can also tell he has more energy and is more alert before he's off to work!

My next obsession is the Fablehaven book series. Before I was let go I started to read the first one, and when I had my two week vacation (haha), and when I wasn't searching for a job I was reading these books. There are four books out and one more to come out this upcoming spring and I can't wait! I love jumping into a series and loving the story! It makes me want to read more...and I love to read! I feel so much better when I can read a book than if I had watched t.v. all day.

So those are the recent things going on in our lives - hopefully we can continue to stay motivated!

Sexy Seniors Preview! who thought I was talking about hot old people when I put up the title? ;)

One of my lovely sister (n laws) is a senior, and this week is her UEA break, so Chelsey (sister) and her bubbly friend Amy decided to come down and visit with Brandon and I over the next few days! During this time I get to take their senior pictures! We are planning two photo shoots - one was yesterday afternoon and the next one will be Saturday! Here are two of my favorites I had time to edit last night!
