Day 8= all vegetable day. It's the worst! I am dying. I am dreaming of pizza and brownies and other delicious items. I so would have quit if Willie weren't doing this with me.
Anyway, what have we been up to lately? Not a whole lot! No, we've had a nice, fun, relaxing month, but no major events. I always feel like I need a big event to blog about. We've just been kinda hanging out lately, though. That's ok, because we're storing up for the big month of March and trips to the Mountain West Basketball Tournament, Kenny's homecoming, Timmy's farewell, and lots of fun family time!

I've been told that pictures are the best part of blogs, and I know they are my favorite. So here are a few random pictures of Willie and I from the past little while:

This past weekend at Nickel City (formerly known as the Nickelcade)

Those two are us at Willie's old roommate's surprise party awhile ago

You may notice that there are no pictures from Valentine's Day. That is kind of a major event, right? Unfortunately, I had an eye infection which resulted in a red shrunken eye and me wearing glasses for a WEEK, which I have not done since I got contacts in the eighth grade! I felt weird. So no, no pictures, although we did have a lovely one :)

Recent events have confirmed what I've long suspected. I have the best husband in the world! That's right, the whole world. Here he is:

(A recent-ish picture of Willie visiting with his Grandpa. I was going to crop it, but it's too cute!)

Does this man (Willie, not Grandpa) look like he needs to lose any weight? No. Because he does not. He is in great shape. I, on the other hand, have gained a at least ten pounds (on a good day) since I got married. And probably more like fifteen since I graduated college, a mere 3 1/2 years ago. This is upsetting to say the least.

I've tried eating better, going to the gym's not working. Mostly because I don't do it. In steps husband of the year. I know he doesn't care and even really notice (at least he says) the weight gain, but he knows it is frustrating for me. So, Willie offered to do a diet with me!! It's called the 11 day diet. My sister, Alli, and her husband Aaron have done it, and I asked her to send it to me awhile ago. She did, and I've actually tried it twice already and failed. I don't think it's that hard, but I need some help sticking with it. So, Willie is going to do it with me so it's not so hard. He can encourage me to stick with it, and I won't have to watch him eating yummy food while I eat this diet's food. Supposedly I will lose 9 lbs in 11 days, which would be AWESOME. We went shopping for the stuff today, and will be starting Monday.

I'm hoping blogging and telling the world (or the ten people who read this) that I am doing it will make me hold myself more accountable, in addition to the fact that Willie is going to be eating a diet of chicken, eggs, and peanuts for 11 days to help me with it. Wish us luck!
