I'm a year older since we last spoke..

I use that title because it seems like that long since we've commiserated here and because I've had a birthday. My birthday was Monday, May 2nd. I just turned *cough cough.* I'm sorry, did you not catch that? I'm now *cough hack cough.* Still didn't get it? Well, I'm sorry but I'm not going to spend all day repeating myself, no matter how much I love you all.

I had a pretty quiet day Monday. Of course, I talked to a few family members on the phone that day with their well wishes, and then because I was bored I ended up texting a guy in Charleston that I haven't spoken to in forever. We ended up on the phone, and I went to bed way too late. Sounds like an exciting day, right? Well, that's how people my age roll. Okay, I really need to stop making myself sound like I'm ancient here. I'm not THAT old. I just feel like it some days.

Anyway, I got a hell of a birthday present though. Our awesome Navy SEALS made it so that my birthday was the first day the planet was a much safer place without bin Laden wasting valuable oxygen. How about them apples?! That was a hell of a gift, I thought. But then, our military rocks!
I know there has always been much debate about who is better - SEALs or Delta. Personally, I think they both rock, and the Special Forces we have in the Air Force are pretty damn awesome as well. Most people don't even know they exist, but they do. They are all unsung heroes who are called away with no notice to go God knows where and do so many things to keep us all safe. There are no words to express how grateful I am for everything these soldiers do. I'm just glad they are on our side!

I've been back to my healthy eating thang this past week. I managed to drop 7 pounds so far. It's amazing what simply getting up off of your ass will accomplish. I also ordered myself some Zumba tapes, mainly due to my blogging friends telling me how great it is. Wait, did I just say tapes? Ummm, CD's! Let's just show your age some more today, Krissy.

Anyway, I'm going to Zumba my way to a much slimmer me to share with you all. I have motivation for the weight loss too since I have a friend getting married next month, and Sister #3 and I booked ourselves a cruise to Key West and the Bahamas in December. I know December isn't exactly the most ideal time, but I'm going on a freaking cruise! For the first time EVER!  I really wish it was right after I finish school, but that's okay. I have no idea what to do about summer clothes in December since I'm hoping to be a lot smaller by then. My goal is to loose 50 pounds before the trip. I'm hoping to lose more than that, but I didn't want to set my goal too high. I think 50 pounds in 7 months is totally doable, and surpass-able.

I'm excited about the whole thing though. I've never really taken a true vacay in my adult life. Every time I've taken that much time off, it's usually to go see family and/or friends. I plan to be about THIS intoxicated..
.. for the majority of the trip. I am loving the idea that I can go to a club to party, or a casino to gamble, or have fun in the sun, and I can STILL just walk back to my bed. I won't have to worry about designated drivers or any of that mess. As long as I don't fall overboard, I'm pretty care free, right?

Okay, I guess I better go try to finish up my homework for the week so I can go catch up on what you all are up to. I will try to be much better about entertaining you all here. I can't believe I've been such a slacker lately. Graduation is coming soon, folks! Or at least, I keep trying to convince myself of that.

Happy Happy belated birthday! Yes, that is a fantastic birthday gift-a safer world:-) Awesome job on your weight loss. It's hard work, but I know that you're going to meet and surpass your goal. And what a great worry to have- finding smaller sized summer clothes for a December cruise.

Krissy said...

Amy... Thanks so much! I think I can do it with encouragement like that! Maybe you all can help me clothes shop in November for summer stuff. :)

Jewels said...

Happy Belated Birthday and YAY for Zumba! I freaking love it! I mean addicted to it, love it, can't get enough of it! Be sure and let me know what you think of it! :)

Al Penwasser said...

Well, if nothing else, Delta beats the snot out of US Airways. Because, after all...huh? Ohhhhh, NOW I know what you mean. Never mind.
Happy Birthday!!!!

J.Day said...

Happy Belated Birthday!

And you'll have fun on your cruise. I went of a 4 day cruise once, and I would love to go on a two week Mediterranean cruise. :o)

On My Soapbox said...

Happy birthday! Good job on losing the seven pounds, too!

Alessandra said...

Happy late birthday! I love cruises. We took a 5 day one to Cabo and it was great. You can be busy all day long or choose to do nothing. I can totally help shop for clothes, I loveeeeee to!
Congrats on the weight loss, you can totally lose it and more.

Oilfield Trash said...

John McElveen said...

Hugs and Birthday Love,


Bouncin' Barb said...

Happy Birthday Sweet Lady. I know you're not 50 so I'll assume you're still a youngin'. Hope it was a special day and 50 pounds in 7 months is most definitely doable. Good luck.

Krissy said...

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes everyone!

Jewels.. I'm excited about it and can't wait for my CD's to get here! I'll let you know if I catch Zumba fever like you. :)

Al.. You are a nut, my friend! I thought we were really about to have a debate up in here.

J. Day.. The Mediterranean would be awesome! When are we going? :) I'm so excited about the cruise.

Soapbox.. Thanks! Every bit of encouragement helps.

Alessandra.. I look forward to your help on the clothes hunt for the cruise. I really don't like shopping much which is why I do most of it online. Thanks for the vote of confidence on the weight loss!

OT.. I know. I can't wait!

John.. Gee, what a thoughtful gift... uh, I think. LOL

Barb.. Okay, so I'll officially be old when I hit 50? Is that what you are trying to tell me? :) My niece told me 40 was the magic "old" number. Thank you for the encouragement on the weight, sweet woman!

Canadianbloggergirl said...

Hey girl! I'm back! Happy Belated Bday my little minion! I'm so jealous of the trip you're taking, any room in the luggage for me?


Krissy said...

CBG.. Hey, girl! I missed ya! There is always room for you, though I'm sure it will be cramped. Although, I'm hoping the clothes I will be packing will be much smaller by then.

The Onion said...

I am working on shedding my fluffy suit for an impending vacation IN JUNE. I better hurry up, no?

I just had the cookie vs apple battle and failed miserably.

And I am celebrating Cinco de Mayo tonight. Fail.

I am also hosting a dinner party with more margaritas and grub Saturday.

My social life is plotting against me. At least i don't know anyone where I am going.

becca said...

Happy Birthday sweetie and there is nothing wrong with telling the world you are now sweet 16. I mean really it's no big deal

Krissy said...

Onion.. Your fluffy suit? I love that! I'm sure you'll get back on track. I don't have much of a social life, so I'm usually okay there. LOL Welcome to my blog, btw! :) Glad to see ya.

Becca.. Oh to be 16 again. The changes I would have made to the way my life turned out. But that's okay. It all made me who I am.

NerdyRedneck Rob said...

What a co-inky-dink, I turned *Cough Cough* Sunday myself.

Ok people, knock it off with the happy birthday crap would ya? 25 is the last happy birthday!

Of course I made the mistake of mentioning to my father how depressed I was about being so freaking old.

He replied, "Know what makes me feel old? Having a son your age!"
Yeah, that'll learn me

The Adorkable Ditz said...

Yippe! A cruise! :D

The Tame One said...

Hey!! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!! I am also *cough, sputter, gag* Years old!

Krissy said...

Rob.. Happy birthday to you! Oops, you told me not to do that. LOL I guess your dad wasn't the best person to say that to. :)

Adorkable.. I'm excited about the cruise!

Tame One.. Thanks! I'm glad you are there with me on the age thing. LOL

Katsidhe said...

Happy Belated, lovely! *mwah!*

I know a lot of chickies who are diggin' Zumba, and I really want to try it. Let us know how it goes!

Nicki said...

Happy Belated Birthday! So I adore that pic...mainly because I totally want to become that redhead with the white sunglasses in my next life.

Krissy said...

Kat.. Thanks, hon! I think my Zumba CD's are supposed to be here today so I'll let you know!

Nicki.. Thanks, girlie! That girl looks awesome, right? They are all having a blast, too.

RaisingOrleans said...

Wow! 50 in 7??? Good luck! Im shooting for 30 myself...Im addicted to a lack of willpower. :)

Krissy said...

RaisingOrleans.. I think that's an addiction you sorely need to break! :) You can do it.
