Hello world! Although I created this blog about 2 years ago, I finally decided that today (02/11/2010) is as good a day as any to write my very first post! What can I say, I'm a little late! Nikki is my name... procrastination is my game! =)
So... where do I begin? Well, I've just lived through a little bit of history that people will probably be talking about for years and years to come! Right now, Maryland is in the midst of it's snowiest winter EVER. In addition to that, we've had THREE blizzards in the past 2 months... and two of those were in the SAME week! And people are worried about global warming! LoL So we're doing alot of digging out... or rather my boyfriend has been doing alot of digging out! I'm not sure what I would've done without Brian and his superior shoveling abilities over the past week! My poor sweetie... =(
Speaking of Brian, his parents are flying in from Chicago tomorrow evening and will be spending the weekend with us. This will be my first time meeting them and I am quite nervous! We originally had planned on touring Washington D.C. one day and Baltimore another day, etc... but I think the weather has put a pretty good wrench in our plans, so we'll have to see what we end up doing!
This Sunday is Valentine's Day, and it will be the first one for Brian & I... but since his parents will be in town for the weekend, we're going to celebrate it on Monday instead. That's ok, because it'll give me a little more time to figure out what to get him! What do you get a GUY for Valentine's Day anyway? I'm open to some suggestions from all you men out there!
After this weekend's festivities, it is finally time to crack down on my diet. I joined Snap Fitness, a 24-hour gym close to my house, a few weeks ago. I subscribe to Weight Watchers Online. Now it's time to put those tools to good use and get some of this weight off... lately I've been inching closer and closer to my highest weight ever. Thanks to these back-to-back blizzards and being stuck in the house for so long, boredom has taken its toll and I have now moved PAST my highest weight ever... BAD TIMES!!! But I know that I CAN do this... I've done it before and I WILL do it again! I've got a goal that I'm working towards... Brian & I are flying to Chicago in April, to go to his friend's wedding. I'd like to fit into a smaller size dress by then, and most importantly, feel less self-conscious about myself. I need all the support I can get...
Until next time...
P.S. Here's a short video of what things were looking like in my neck of the woods last night... my own personal Winter Wonderland!
