Changing my name
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls. I would like to officially announce that as of the 19th of January in the year of our Lord 2011, I changed my name from Miss M to Mrs. G. It only took me six months. Now a moment of silence for my maiden name, please.
This time of the year is torture on my skin. It gets so dry and irritated-- it's almost painful to wear clothing. I get the usual dry hands, but the skin on my back under my bra strap gets chapped and so do my hips. Enter stage left, the best lotion EVER.

Where as a lot of real estate agents might stop taking your calls at 5:00, Kim was e-mailing us information about our contract from a bar on a Friday night. Anytime a problem has come up, she has been right there giving us advice and really helping us through the whole process. And she allows me to post pictures of her with naked chicks. Rock. STAR.

In an effort to get back down to my welter weight, I have really been trying to eat better. The problem is, I kinda love ice cream. Like, really love ice cream. Luckily I stumbled upon Skinny Cow and now I'm addicted. The ice cream is so smooth and creamy-- it doesn't taste low fat at all! My new favorite is the White Mint Truffle, and at only 100 calories a bar, I don't feel so guilty indulging in one!
January and February.. get to gettin'. March is here and it bring spring on it's heels!
Always & Forever,
