hello my blogging pal i am finally back!

The past week has been so hard with getting my tonsils out (yea i know i sound like a big baby!!)

Ill fill you guys in on how it went...Last Thursday i checked in at the hospital at 7 am .  I was secretly freaking out about this operation because i did not want to sit in the recovery room alone and have to go through this pain alone.  At the last min a lady i work with called me up and said she would sit there and be by my side the whole day. That just made me cry.  Being away from family and all my close friends had been hard but it was nice to have people here that care enough for me to be there for me.

So the operation went OK. I was at the hospital until about 3 pm and then the lady i work with took me home.  I got home, took my meds, and went back to sleep.  

I have spend the last few days asleep and waking up to drink, take more meds, and try to get some food down.  Today has def been the best day.  

I expected the worst going into this and i am glad i did because it made it seem not as bad. it was not the greatest thing but i know that it could have been alot worse. 

I have had several friends bring me food and drinks and to call and wake me up to try to get me to eat and drink something.  So even though i thought i was going to be alone i def was not alone at all. I am so grateful for all the people that past few days who did worry and help me out.  

so with that said i am finally back! I'm not 100% yet but i am good enough to get up and start to go through the hundreds of emails i have and the dozens of voice mails i have (i guess people don't realize i had my tonsils out and that i cant talk so they still decide to call and talk to me...LoL) 

Happy Turkey Day! Make sure to surround yourself with the people you love and cherish! and stay tuned for the giveaway :-)

Happy Hump Day bloggers!

Well i would like to announce that i finally got 100 followers! such a HUGE milestone for me because i seriously never thought 100 ppl would ever care about the things i ramble about on my blog but i guess they do! and i am truly appreciative of that!!

Like promised i will have a give away :-) But please forgive me as it will have to wait until next week.  I am getting my tonsils out first thing tomorrow morning and i have TONS of work to get done between now and then so i do apologize. i know it is a little late for me to get them out but they are driving me crazy and with the upcoming winter season i do not want to deal with the frequent illnesses and sore throats so its about time i got them taken out. So tomorrow keep me in your thoughts b/c i am def nervous about it and it is freaking me out a little bit...but ill be back to normal hopefully this time next week.

So happy hump day and have a gr8 weekend! ill def try to get up the LoL Moments for you guys on Sunday (b/c so many of you love them so i cant disappoint my followers!)

Today is suppose to be memorable?
I mean yea it is Veterans day (and i am very appreciative for ALL that they do. i have several friends in the armed forces) but i prob wont be around for the next 11.11.11 but at least i can say that i was able to enjoy such a "momentous" day :-)

A few days ago, i came across a blog of a lady who was trying to win a contest.  this contest was to provide a surprise xmas for a needy family.  she rallied up her friends and they won the contest in a matter of hours! So thanks to her and her friends they are able to provide a nice xmas for some needy family.

Reading this story touched my heart.  Growing up we were always taught that this time of year it the best to try to give back to those who are less fortunate than we are.  so i felt compelled to send this blogger a note. i congratulated her on her win as well as offered my helping had to also help to send more items to another needy family she spoke about in her post.  i was lucky to get a response from her! So for this xmas i am going to help out a family of 6! It is a mom who is currently in a hug financial struggle and she has 4 boys and 1 girl. me and a gal at work are gonna do a little black Friday shopping so i thought this would be the perfect time to pick up a few extra things to donate to this family!

It makes me happy to know that i will actually be able to help out a family in need this year. i have not been able to do this for a few years, and in the past i did it with my sorority. but this time it is all me! It just makes my heart smile :-) so if anyone has any extra deodorant or toothpaste laying around let me know! i would love to have some extra items to send to this family (and with it being 5 kids i will def need to summon the help of all my friends as well!)

Tomorrow morning bright and early in the morning is also opening season for deer hunting!! Well it has been deer season for a while but people get to use their rifles so this is usually the big hunting time.  so if you know any hunters please tell them to be safe and to stay warm! I wont be going out this week but i will be going out in a few week. don't worry i will def keep you guys updated on if i get my first deer! Mr. Adventure is gonna go out with his friends early in the AM and all day tomorrow to try to get the big buck (the big daddy deer with the HUGE racks on their heads). opening weekend is just about the best time to get the big buck...well that was your hunting lesson for today...LoL...yea this past few months i have def learned alot about hunting (def way more than i ever expected)!!

but on a lighter note....

Browsing my usual fav blogs (and some new ones) i have seen some people talk about what they are grateful for.  I know that each day I honestly can say that I will notice at least ONE thing that I am grateful for. Do you? I challenge you to at least try to think of ONE things that you are grateful for that you are able to enjoy or have in your life.

...I {Stephanie} am grateful for...

...My Faith...
I know that without my faith I do not think I would have made it as far as I have.  

...My sister Jennifer...
We are very close and i honestly do not know what i would do without her. I talk to her everyday and she has been one of the ONLY ppl on my life that has always been there for me no matter when i needed her. don't get me wrong i love my other family members we are just the closest out of all 8 of my siblings 

...My BFF's...
I cant even call them my BFF's...I will change that to My Family. These guys have been there and are a huge part of my life. 

...My Sorority sisters...
I have had the pleasure of meeting and creating relationships with some AMAZING women.  I know I would not had that chance if my sorority did not bring us together.  I have learned so much and I have been able to be apart of a divine sisterhood that has also helped me in life.

...Basketball: March Madness...
well you know how some guys go nuts when baseball season or football season is here...well I def go nuts during college bball season...most importantly March Madness. It was the greatest holiday ever created! I hope that I get to go to some more games this year!!

I would def not make it through one single day with out my MUSIC (I have an ipod jammed pack with songs or I turn to my fav online radio stations when I want to listen to something different)

yes i said food! i love to eat. and i love to try to find new things to cook and eat.  food def makes the world go roud! I may eat healthy but i def still find time to sneak in the good stuff!

...My New Blog...  infinitelifefitness.com
I thought about how i could help people NOW in a way that will change their lives forever.  so i started my new health/fitness blog and so far it is off to a great start! i have gotten tons of positive feedback and i hope to help more people and become bigger in the future!

...My Job...

i currently still work two jobs to help save up money and to also help me get a jump start to paying off some of my student loans.  both jobs are gr8 opportunities and i am very lucky to have gotten either of them!

i am a lab assistant at the local hospital and i also get paid full time to work on my research with a professor at the medical school in my town.  both def keep me busy but i love both of them and they def are helping me get to where i want to be.

...the "little" things in life...

like being able to see all the stars on a warm summer night....the perfect sunsets i get to see when i return home for the holidays....being able to find some of my fav food in the store (b/c living in a small town they don't always carry the things that i like to have)...having my Dove chocolate moments...or any other moments when it comes to food...LoL. there are so many "little" moments in life that just make your day that much more enjoyable.   

I know that these are just a few things that i am grateful for.  like i said i try to think of at least one thing every day! so i challenge you to do the same thing.  i know that the small problems that i have are nothing compared to something else that someone else in the world is going through.  so i try to remind myself of how lucky i am no matter how little or how much i have i will always have something to be thankful for. 

So what are you thankful for?

 tis the season to be thankful! :-)

 Happy Hump Day!!
