The Miss Hooks Pageant came in and went like a light.  I was going to post pictures but I don't have any good ones, Brandon didn't get up and take pictures up close!!
love ya babe, :)

Since the last time I blogged...we bought land and decided to sell our house.  We had the house up for almost two weeks and got a hit. A couple from here! They loved the house and made and offer and we accepted. SO, needless to say we will be moving here shortly.  Our plans are to save and then build within the next three years. It should be before the three years are up...but that is a fair time line!

Ali has grown like a weed. She is 9 months now! Where did that time go? She is so stinkin' adorable! I know I may be partial but can't say she isn't!!! :)
(picture at 5 months or so)
See???? What did I tell ya. TOO CUTE.

I have a new addiction at the moment. I suppose two!!! Candy Crush Saga and Pinterest.

Whoever came up with those two, really had nothing better to do, and now...when Ali is asleep or I'm in the car....that's all I do! THANKS! HAHA!!! I need help getting passed 117. Any suggestions. I am to the point, I want to throw my phone out the stinkin window.  With pinterest...I'm sure Brandon would like to kill me. I have made all kinds of new creations with dinner, desserts, and DIY projects. I love it! I try new things...somethings aren't so good, so we don't have it again, but other times they are flippin sweet. Like the oreo icebox pie. AMAZING!!! Found Here 
Follow ME on Pinterest too. I have a ton of stuff on there and I'm sure a ton more soon. :)

Any way, the next month or a little over a month is going to be crazy. So I figured I'd update ya and then leave ya be for a little and then come back again! lol!

Oh yea...I am also stuck at the same weight, 3 months now! HOWEVER, I am toning and I can tell somewhat, and others SEE the results. So I have to be doing something right. The scale is just a number...that number doesn't even matter! I wouldn't have thought that when I started my weight loss journey but boy things change! I'll see if I can't post a before and present picture soon.

I will try and blog more for those of you who actually like to read this!

Later Gators,

Goodbye 2012....Hello 2013

Okay, so I am a little late with this but give me a break! :)

A TON happened in 2012!

For starters: This day last year (January 2, 2012) I took a test that would change our life forever! I tell ya what... I passed that sucker with FLYING colors!!

January 31, 2012 - Our first Doctors appointment to confirm my scoring! :) A little bitty bean was in my tummy with a fast heart beat. So cute and unbelievable that a tiny thing like that would be growing inside me!
That night was also my Uncle's birthday. We had a get together at Chilis and let everyone know then that we were expecting.

I'm sure something happened in February and March but nothing to write about - I really can't remember those months.

April however I remember like it was yesterday!!

April 25, 2012- The day we were to find out what we were going to have! I was getting ready that morning in our guest bathroom so Brandon could sleep in a little bit. I was straightening my hair and then reached down to get something and a SNAKE was right there at my freakin FOOT!!  This woman didn't scream...until I got to the bedroom! I believe I was asking for Brandon but I wasn't loud enough and took off to the room! :(

 Brandon came to my rescue with a spatula and two prong fork (or whatever they are called)...YAY my HERRRRO!

Later that day we found out we were having a little GIRL!!!

Not sure what happened in May or June. I do know it was HOT. Let me tell ya HEAT and PREGNANCY don't mix!! IF there is a next time, I will plan differently!

July 21, 2012 - I had an amazing baby shower-Thanks to Tia Cooper, Breanna Murphy, Lisa Runnels, and Cathy McBroom. So much love for that little unborn baby.

In August, we prepared for little Ali Rae's arrival. A whole month! I predicted that she would be born on the 31st and Brandon the 1st. Those days came and nothing happened. Soooooo....

September 6, 2012 - With the help of an epidural (the best decision EVER!!!)...we had a beautiful baby girl at 9:59 pm weighing 8lbs 6oz and 21 inches long.
There were a ton of people waiting for her arrival at the hospital and she even had a special radio announcement for her uncles and aunts on the fire department <-they had a fire.

October 6, 2012 - One month after Ali. I was 20 - 30 pounds lighter, but having a tough time. I didn't think I would be so worn out...BOY was I wrong. That was one tough month. We made it through and it got easier, much easier.

November 22, 2012 - Ali's first Thanksgiving. We quickly learned how to make a plate while that one eats and the other holds baby and then the other way. I finish pretty quickly most of the time..I don't know if that's good or bad. :)

December 2012 - We had some wonderful guests arrive at our house! We love their company and don't want them to leave. We have PLENTY of room for you guys when you return...FYI!!!  :)

December 25, 2012 - Ali's First Christmas. This child is already SPOILED. She got a TON of stuff. I look forward to next year and getting her nothing but boxes!!

December 31, 2012 - New Year's Eve. We worked the day of, came home, and went NO WHERE and did NOTHING!!! It was so GREAT!!
(We are doing that with Christmas next year too!)

After a LONG post....

An Update! :)

I haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd write a small one.

The Whitehurst Trio has been busy lately. Christmas is around the corner and going to town seems to be an everyday thing around our house. If it isn't gifts, its clothes for one of the three of us.

We have been very blessed with a TON of hand-me-downs (which I love-Thanks-Dani, Annie, Kenzi, and Mandi), so we don't have to do a lot of shopping for Ali...Brandon and I are different stories.  Brandon has lost weight right along with me which is weird because he can eat everything in sight and not GAIN a pound.......BUUUUTTTT he still loses weight! MEN are just mean! HA. I have seem to hit a plateau at the moment and I'm in between sizes, I HATE that. It just so happens that I don't have any pants in the size I need, so I had to shop for that. I really DISLIKE shopping for jeans anyway because I am so SHORT. This past weekend apparently all the stores didn't want me to buy from them, not a ONE of them had the size I needed in boot cut!

BESIDES that, Ali is very alert to every little thing. She is growing so fast! I thought all the other kids in the family grew fast, but nothing is like your own child growing! She has finally started sleeping better. She still has her nights where she doesn't quite sleep through the night, but that's okay-wouldn't change it! We have recently discovered that she has started to child is already doing this...WHAT?? She was just born, like yesterday! :/

I know a lot of people do not read this kind of stuff, but I kind of enjoy doing this. I will try my best to update more and even add more pictures. I have the mobile app so maybe a few more posts this weekend coming up week. Every weekend has been crazy busy and it won't slow down until after Christmas.

(those of you who read this)
What are all the plans?
Anyone know of anything yet?

To those that do read; any advice on my plateau???

Our new Addition

Our new Addition is something else! She has got to be the prettiest baby I have ever seen! I know, I know... she's my child and I would and will always say that.

She can be a handful at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way. She has shown me who is boss (for the time being)...and let me tell ya, she knows she is too!

I will admit, when we first found out we were pregnant, we both wanted a boy. Now that she is here, I think we have both changed our minds! We could both squeeze her to pieces. We love to just sit and watch her sleep, stare at the ceiling, or coooo. And she has ONE adorable little smile that melts my heart! I look forward to getting off work every day to see that bundle of joy! :)

Tonight is Halloween! She will be dressing up as a pink monster. I am still unsure about actually getting/collecting the candy. It really isn't fair for me to be collecting the candy that she won't eat! And this girl sure doesn't need any!!! I'll post a picture later of what she looks like. Her first Halloween already! Soon it will be her first Christmas!!!! I'm not ready for all these years to fly by like I know they will!

I know I am all over the place! I just can't help myself!

I have added a few pictures down below! One of Ali, one of our Trio, and one of me.

The one of Ali...doesn't she look like her daddy?????

The one of our trio...we are one happy and truly blessed family!

The one of me....trying to get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight..... sportin new clothes while I try! :)

That's it!

Baby Ali

I'm still here!! I just haven't had time to post!!

Alison Rae Whitehurst was born September 6, 2012 at 9:59pm. She weighed 8lbs 6 oz and was 21in long!

She is definitely the spitting image of me!! Uh oh!! :)

We are loving every minute with her and look forward to what/who she will turn out to be!

She will be 20 days old tomorrow!! Where did the time go??? That means 1 year will be here before I know it!! :/

That's all for now.
