So as you may remember, September 27th was my 26th birfday. Well Ms. Amber from Bugs, Barbies, and Wedded Bliss remembered! She is seriously so cute and needs to be on the Real Housewives of Alabama STAT. She has the car, the house, the looks, she has 1 sassafras little girl, 1 HILARIOUS little red head boy, and the cutest marriage. If you don't already follow her? I am so sorry for your loss, but go check out her blog and I promise you'll be hooked within 1 post.
So anywhooot, Amber told me there was something coming for moi in the mail. That news alone got me excited! So Ive been lurking around our mailbox every day at 1:48pm (The mail comes at 1:50 on most days) to see what that handsome mailman distrubtes into the mail boxes. Well it came!!!

So we all know how Jessica Simpson had her baby and how she signed a deal with Weight Watchers to lose the baby weight. She hasn't lost it as ridiculously fast like some other celebrity women *Any and all the Victoria Secret
sticks models, but that's ok. As a mom who worked out before her baby, during her baby, and after her baby and through the crazy toddler days, I know it's hard work. I get to the gym at least 3 times a week and train hard and intense and Im STILL not where I want to be *wine may play a part in this...or my little bites of Troy's lunches and dinners*. And I am almost 2 years post partum. So to me, Jessica looks freaking good! Look at those legs?! Ummm, hello shredded calves! Jessica has always had amazing legs, but that's not the point. The point is, she needs to tell me where she got those shoes! She had baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson about 5 months ago & lets not all forget where we (peeps who've had babes is what I mean by "we") were 5 months post partum. Way to go Jessica, keep it up girl!

Am I the only blogger who feels sometimes like they are forced to come up with something witty to blog about? I know Im not the only person who feels pressure to talk about something people will actually want to hear about *Im looking at you, Barrack* Like I seriously think to myself, "Why would anyone care to read about Troy & I going to the park today?" I feel as tho this blogging world can be uber competitive. Obviously, you tell yourself you aren't going to get wrapped up in it, and that you blog for yourself, but cmon. Lets be honest: You care about those followers you get. Every time you see you have new followers or you've lost followers, it effects you. You can admit it or not. So that is why I think about how I can entertain those new people, or those dedicated people I've had since the beginning. But when I have nothing, it's sort of a forced post.
This is like an online diary, right? I started this blog to document my life, my workouts, to be inspired, to inspire. Then it was documenting the move back home from North Carolina to California. Then it was about mine and Nicks California job hunt in a shitty economy. Then it was about moving out of my parents house, then it was about my pregnancy. And now? My days are full of chasing Troy around, "All About Helicopters" on repeat on the iPad, my mental battle with my my butt in the gym by 5am M-F, trying to take care of the house like Im supposed to (Read Stay at Home Wife/Mom definition), having days where I hit and miss with potty training Troy...so seriously, that explains my lack of presence.
I hate that in a way, I've let the "followers" number get to me, or trying to "Keep up with the Joneses" of the blog world. In February I got a tattoo that reads, "Alis Volat Propriis" (Translation: She flies by her own wings).
Well friggin A Karli...fly by your own wings! This is an online diary of a sorts so document all you want about how you basically ate it at the gym when the Smith Machine was trying to press your face into the ground or how Troy has nicknamed his "stuff", "Nanny" (aka Banana. Yes, my son is confident at his young age). Its definitely time I stop worrying if Im going to be funny. I already know, I am HILAR. I shall start with my gym story.....starting tomorrow :) Be back for this short little tid bit that's sure to bring a smile to your face.

Well its been a hot minute since I last updated the old blog. Probably because nothing super eventful has happened, just little things here and there:
1. Troy has stopped doing his business as often on the potty - gah! Im really trying not to be discouraged because he's not even 2 and I've always heard boys are harder to fully potty train. I think I've figured out why that is - Troy cannot keep his hands off his jewels long enough to pee in the potty!
2. I have been absolutely atrocious with my eating. You would think I just dont care anymore & my workouts have been skipped way more often than they should be. I mean to be fair, Im working out on average 3 days a week, but it needs to be more and the nachos, homemade chocolate chip cookies, need.to.stop! I expect so much more from myself. So this week I've buckled down & I am staying tight to my Weight Watchers Point system. Also, I will be going to the gym 5 days this week and sticking to my workouts tighter than spandex and a chunky thigh.
3. Fall has FINALLY arrived here in the Nor Cal area
