Shut the _____ Up!!

But seriously!

Okay, so that was a little violent but some days that's how I feel towards certain people who won't be named on the blog.

These wonderful human being's think that it's okay to do really, REALLY dumb stuff. Since, I have been dealing with this for about 8 months now I think it is finally time I complain or vent.

January: The Frahm's move into their first cute town home excited as ever. They meet the neighbors on both sides happy to see they are great people. But as one of the neighbors points out that they are in their carport and have been for some time. The Frahm's wonder if this will be a problem?? This neighbor says "Let me know when your Frahm's will actually need your car port and we will let you use it" In my head I'm thinking "NOW! It's my freaking carport." Later that evening we have Mr. Frahm walk over and muster up the courage to politely ask them to move their car. No problems.

February: The Frahm's try pulling out of their carport but cannot. Why you ask?? They are blocked by such neighbors by there ginormous SUV. They also notice the neighbors play music, movies, and yell loud. REALLY LOUD.

March: Same such occasion

April: The Frahm's are almost positive they can hear a War Zone going on next door.

May: Mrs. Frahm is late for school and tries leaving, but yet again some neighbors are unloading groceries and say "Let me just finishing unloading. I will be just a minute" After neighbor is done unloading groceries, the neighbor opens Mrs. Frahm's car door gets inside and decides it is time to catch up on the latest gossip. No. It is not the time.

June: The Frahm's try to leave their garage this time and are once again blocked in by "the SUV" Mr. Frahm goes and politely knocks on the neighbors door to get them to move it. No answer. Knocks a couple more times. No answer. Finally we see there son walking around outside and we tell him to get his parents to move the car. The dad comes outside and says "Sorry about that" and moves the car.

July: I am used to the War Zone noises so I barely notice it anymore- good sign. But than said such neighbor complains that are dog is "quite the barker" Hmm, pretty sure we have had him for a short time but we put up with your "noises" for how many months now??

August: Same old same old

September: Neighbor is over at my house and notices we have the same shoes just in different colors Neighbor also figures we are the same size. Later that week neighbor texts me and asks if they could borrow my shoes?? (hmm no) I don't like people borrowing clothes and/or shoes of mine. Luckily I was wearing them that day. But than neighbor goes on to say that we can switch for that day (still a big fat NO)

Okay I know this is like really mean and what not. I also do realize that I live in a town home and your walls are right by each other so you hear everything, but honestly I barely hear anything from the other neighbors and they are so nice not to make a peep. Me and my husband try really hard to. But some days I have to complain or I might take it out on them and that could be scary. They really are great people. In fact they were for awhile there the only people that made me feel welcome in the ward. And we have fun with their kids sometimes, but I can't pretend that we LOVE all that they bring into our lives!

We all have "those neighbors" I'm just a little more vocal about it!

"I wanna be a Supermodel"

Okay, not really at all... But I do want to drop the lbs. Seriously.

On Monday my sister Jamie and I started a diet. A legit diet. I haven't felt great about my body, at all lately. Sure everyone critics their body but I haven't even felt healthy. That's a big deal. Right before Jake and I got married I felt really good about myself. I didn't have a six pack or anything but I felt confident. I even felt that my soon to be husband could see me naked. (hehe)

(this is me last August)
I don't look amazing but you cant see cottage cheese on my legs you can't see my pooch, and my face looks normal.
(This is me in June/July)

I look about 5 months prego (I'M NOT) my arm is the size of my thigh last summer, and my face looks like a swelled balloon.

What happened?? Seriously? Well, let's pretend since it happens to a lot of people that I gained 5-10 from getting married. Because, honestly since I have been married we eat whatever and whenever. That's not healthy. Than I was on birth control which is rumored to make you gain and than I switched on to another birth control. So that is my excuse. I knew I had gained some serious weight though because the jeans I wore in my engagements, I can't even get them up my thighs. I was/am feeling a little pathetic. I felt I wanted to make a change all summer long. Than my sister expressed she wanted to lose some weight together so we could help and encourage each other.

On Sunday we weighed in. I was so shocked by my weight. I even took the number down by 3 lbs. cause I had weighed in clothes and at night. On Monday we started a 1,200 calorie diet. The first three days were SUPER hard. I was starving, than I worked a night shift and was feeling like I might hunch over and die. But it's always darkest before the dawn right?? So it has been about 5 days. I already feel healthier (imagine that) and I feel like I'm not trying to squeeze into all my clothes. Today I weighed in this morning and I was down!! Hallelujah! I have already lost somewhere between 3-5 lbs. I'm not positive considering the circumstances I weighed in on Sunday. But still I feel like I can do this!

Now I really don't want to be a size zero, cause that's not realistic or healthy for MY body. I just want to feel healthier and like my normal self. So I will tell you more as time goes on about my journey of the weight loss!

Jacob Thomas Frahm

(yes, he's precious)

Lately, I have been EXTREMELY grateful for my husband. A couple months ago me and him had a rough patch we went through. Probably the hardest part of our relationship thus far. I was just sad and unhappy and I felt like a failure but after working things out with Jake things have been so great. I really can say I'm content and happy and so in love with this man. 

School started on Monday and I was SOOO stressed out. I had to get from point A to point Z (literally) in ten minutes. I didn't want to start another year of school. Just everything wasn't in my favor and I came home just sobbing and upset. So Jake tried to cheer me up and he rented me a Redbox. Still I had this pit in my stomach that would NOT go away. So I started to sob all over again. I told Jake I wasn't even sure if school was right for me and I didn't want to do anything. Than it donned on me, ask your husband for a blessing. Cause usually every year since I can remember my dad gave me a blessing right before school had started. Well, my cute little husband pulled up a chair and gave me an amazing blessing instantly I felt better and knew I was going to be okay. I had never had my husband gave me a blessing before so it was a really neat experience for me. After, I felt an incredible love for him. 

The next day he said after work we could go to UVU together and get my books and he would walk me around and show me the easiest way to get to classes and the tricks of UVU. It was so fun and I actually became excited for school the next day. Well sure enough the next day came and it was great and stress-less. Which makes me feel so grateful for my awesome husband, the priesthood, and my Heavenly Father.
