Pic I found!

I just wanted to share this picture I found today as I was going through my computer.

It is of my baby, Beau.

I know I haven't updated my blog in a while, but I promise to do it in the next few days.

By the way, I have updated my website with a great new gallery! I am still updating my site twice per week, so please stop by and take a look! :)

Long time no write! Yes it has been, but I am going to make sure I change this. I have been so busy with has been a wonderful year! And the house is coming along beautifully; there's always something to do with it, either outside or in. Training has been pretty consistent, so no complaints there, except I have to squeeze it in on some days when the schedule is full. Of course spending time with Amanda as much as possible is always on the top of my list! We have so much fun together, whether we are just chillin', training, shopping or visiting with friends. We love to go to this local sports bar called "Mazzy's", where we eat lots of great food after training, or go to catch a game on the weekend, and! They have excellent food, with a great atmosphere.
In case you 're wondering, I like to watch the Detroit Pistons, Miami Heat(b/c D. Wade is awesome), various football teams, and the Braves for baseball.
You could say we are regulars there, and are treated very nicely!
Anyway, having Amanda in my life has been such a blessing. She is the most caring person I have ever known. On the flip side of that, she appreciates everything, big and small. So many simple things in life can go unnoticed between two people in a relationship. We definately cherish all we have, and always try to give to one another. Sure makes life wonderful!
We went to Michigan for Thanksgiving to spend the holiday weekend with my (her new) family.
Christmas will be spent here in Georgia with her mom. I am very happy to do this! Denise and I have a great time with each other--always! She is an incredible lady, with a heart of gold! I know where her daughter gets it. I would do anything for her, just as I would for my blood relatives. We should have a fantastic holiday together. I want to take us to The Waverly for brunch. It is the most incredible brunch buffet in Atlanta. Am I talking about food again?
That would be on Christmas Eve. Maybe we'll cook just a little bit for Christmas Day.
She lives about 25-30 minutes from us. She has an incredible house also. Let's just say Florida real estate is outrageous, so you can imagine what she owns now! Smart move Mom! Besides she's close to her girls now! Makes all of us so happy.
Can you believe this year is coming to an end? Seems like it just sped passed us since about July! It has been a year filled with lots of events for us, some bringing emotional highs and then some lows. Amanda graduating from PTA School, moving and taking the Georgia Board; her mom moving here; my niece Breanna married her long time sweetheart Mike; Beau passing away...but remains right here with me; Family matters, mattering.
All I can say is "thank God for His grace! Amen". I seriously don't know how people get through life without any faith or belief in a higher power. Personally, my spiritual life is dependant on Jesus Christ as my Savior. My human life has been saved more times than I can count, beginning shortly after birth, and continues on every day I wake up breathing.
I like to say I am a spirit having a human experience. And Beau was a spirit having a human experience, while trapped in a dog's body! Lol.
Ok, time to make some dinner. Amanda just got home from coaching the girls, so we're both pretty hungry!
Take care and be safe, and smile at a stranger today! Or help an elderly person.

Hi there! It's Sunday, and a lazy one at that! We finally got some rain here in Atlanta! Last night, and again this morning....great for keeping me on the sofa, but also for the lawn and flowers! We planted more flowers yesterday. I worked for a bit first, while Amanda went to Pike's Nursery and picked a few new beauties to add to the front area of the house. So she, Kevin, and I planted them, just about the time Andy rolled in and helped with the finishing touches of pine bark mulch. What a difference that stuff makes! Looks like it should be in Better Homes and Garden...LOL. Then we planted the Granny Smith Apple tree! I really hope that survives the heat and produces lots of apples!
Ok, so that took up the whole day. I didn't finish working until 1:30, so I got a late start outside. We were starved by then! So we showered and went out to dinner. It was a great day of course. So today we are takin' it easy. We will train though. We are having a good time training lately. Workouts are good and hard. The better we eat, in terms of more calories and frequency, the greater the pump! I love training with Amanda.
We are looking forward to going to Vegas! The USA should be interesting this year. We will have so much fun, don't you think? Hans will be meeting us there, which is wonderful! We are planning to sleep as little as possible, eat as much as possible, and hit every crazy spot in town. What a perfect place to see a contest, and NOT be dieting OR competing! Well, I hope you all have a terrific Sunday! Check out my updates, and if you haven't joined yet, what are you waiting for??!

Love and blessings!

Hi Everyone!!!
I am in Ft Myers, but I will be heading back to Atanta (Marietta) tomorrow!
Amanda is moving finally...long awaited, but the time has arrived!
I have been down here for a couple of weeks, without internet at home, so I apologize
for being out of touch.
I came down for her birthday, and stayed for some R&R. She has been wrapping up
clinical school requirements, while we have been training and preparing for the move.
Right now, we are at an internet cafe, which we stopped in on our way home from the gym.
I said, "I better drop a line in my journal, before I get kicked to the curb!" Lol.
So we'll head home, eat, pack the car, etc.
We are looking forward to the drive tomorrow. I bought a book by Joyce Myer called The
Mind Is A Battlefield. I plan to read it aloud while Amanda drives. That, along with
a couple of memorable stops, and it should be a great roadtrip.
I miss Beau sooooo much! I can't wait to hug and kiss him! He's so cute when I pick him up
and he puts his head down on my shoulder to hug me back! Ooh what a babyboy!
Well, I will let you all know how the drive went once I get back to Georgia!
I have missed being online. Take care Everybody! Don't for get to send your Mother's Day
gifts soon!

Be safe and Be Blessed!

Mimi xoxo
