2.5 weeks out

So much has been going on and I have had no mental energy to blog...
My show is in less than 3 weeks.
This prep has seemed to just fly by.
I feel like things have been a lot easier this time around...
for the most part.
Things have been pretty stressful with things at work, trying to move and making sure I get all my gym time in.
But I decided that I am WAY to stubborn to ever give up.
For a minute there though, they didn't have a venue and I was afraid that it would end up being cancelled. :S
But it is now going to be held at Granger High School!
I am pretty excited because I decided to compete in two classes again this time. 
Open and open natural.
Extra stage time and extra chance to win!
I am not as lean as I was last time around which is really kinda freaking me out... 
gotta love all the head games! 
Two and half weeks to bust it out!

Sunday was my 25th birthday!
Man I am getting old! 
I definitely feel way too immature to be 25... lol
Being on contest prep kinda sucked for a birthday...
but I did get to eat a cupcake or two!
Not to mention I ate chicken tacos with my family and my darling boyfriend made me protein pancakes for breakfast. :) 
It was nice to just have the day off from work and spend time with family.
I have been feeling a little hormonal and moody from my diet so I wasn't feeling up to doing anything crazy.
Phil got me the cutest baking starter kit for when I am off the diet and can start baking again.
We watch tons of food network and I have been dying to get back into baking!
I have even been considering getting a part time job at a bakery :)
How fun would that be??
I found a website last night that I am OBSESSED with!
They have so many yummy ideas!
I am excited to bake for Phil because you know what they say that a way to a mans heart is through is stomach... and he hasn't gotten to experience my baking skills yet! ;)

The Sunday before my birthday was not only mothers day, but mine and Phil's 6 month anniversary.
I woke up to this darling set up:)
Breakfast all ready, roses and the cutest card ever. :)
We also celebrated that night with some Mac & Cheese for cheat meal!

One last note:
My darling ex-sister-in-law is getting married tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited for her...
With how everything ended with my divorce, I am not sure if I will have the honor of being able to go to her reception..
but either way I wish her the best!
She will always be a sister to me and I miss her dearly.
