Alright, fine.

So my wife just told me that she called me out on not writing a blog yet. Well, here I finally am, writing a blog for my first time.

Unfortunately for anyone who reads this, it is 10pm on 2/18/09 and I am freaking tired, so I am going to close (yes, already).

Thanks for reading. More to come :)


The Challenge

I am on Day Two of no candy/dessert.

I have come to realize that I eat too many sweets. I know everything is okay in moderation but I also have know, deep down inside, that I enjoy my sweets a bit too much. About a week ago I wanted to challenge myself and not eat candy/dessert type food and see how long I could make it. Well, I would forget about my challenge and find myself eating a kit-kat or ice cream and then realize that I wanted to challenge myself. So as of yesterday morning I decided that I was going to be serious about this. I mean, I will still use my Coffee-mate coffee creamer (I mean, come on!) and eat my sugar cereal sometimes but I have challenged myself to not eating candy, cookies, ice cream, cake, DONUTS, brownies, ect. If you know me at all, you know that this is a major challenge. My hope is that by taking a break I will view my sweets in a different way, more as a treat and less of a staple in my diet. Craig agreed to participate in the challenge with me yesterday, but I woke up this morning to an empyt Kit-Kat wrapper. I told him he could have atleast hid the evidence. He said he forgot, I know what that is like. So, Day 2 for Ashley & Day 1 for Craig. I will let you know how this goes...

Oh, and if you were curious I did not go to McDonald's for my QPC.

I am hoping that Craig will honor us with his thoughts sometime soon, I would hate to be the only one contributing...

number one

Well, this is it. Craig and I have started a Blog. I cannot make any promises to you right now. I cannot say that we will update this often and that you will enjoy reading our posts. I cannot promise anything we say will make you laugh or be so interesting and intriguing that you cannot sleep at night. Aren't you excited we started a blog? We are.

We are currently trying to figure out our car situation. We have two cars that we feel okay about but we really feel that we do not need two cars right now. We basically do everything together, I know... we spend A LOT of time together. So we really would like to get rid of car debt and eventually not have a car payment. How awesome would that be?

Did you hear? Craig did rather well this Valentine's Day! I woke up to the smell of fresh flowers and a big stuffed dog in bed with me, it was very soft. Craig knows I still like stuffed animals, I cuddle with them when Craig isn't in the mood. This brings me to my next point: a pet.

We have been talking about getting a puppy for like a year now, since we moved into our house. Still... no puppy. I am okay with that. I am not sure if I could handle a dog right now. Pooping, peeing, eating all my stuff. I think I would grow to hate it and that is not fair. But then there are those moments when we see the cutest dogs and we say, "aw, we should get a dog like that!" It will be interesting to see if we get a puppy in the neat future. I mean, it is like a right of passage, isn't it? I have to be able to own and train a dog before I can have a child, right? No? oh. Well, it still may be a good idea.

We watched the NBA All-Star basketball game tonight, but this is not what I want to talk about. It is about one of the commercials I saw while watching the game. There was a commercial where a young woman was eating a Quarter Pounder with Cheese from McDonald's. I cannot remember the last time I ate something from McDonald's, I am not a very big fan. However, this particular commercial made me want to go out to the McDonald's down the street and get a QPC right away! I already ate dinner for the evening, even had ice cream for dessert. I should not want a fast food hamburger. After asking Craig a few times to go get me one and him refusing my request every time (for my own well-being) I decided if I still want one tomorrow, I will get one for lunch.
