man it has been a long time....

SOOOOOO MUCH HAS CHANGED since my last post.....

to make it short....

Toby changed jobs, we sold our house, we moved, Kaitlyn started school, I opened a new gym,
bought a new house, and started a new business venture.....WOW

We have moved......Toby was offered his first Superintendent job in Claude,TX. It has been always what he wanted so it was a NO BRAINER... We loved the idea of being closer to my parents and family, Amarillo, and of course, CHURCH... It is a great school and liked the idea of Kaitlyn starting school in a small school....... BUT ...... it wasn't that easy.... It is (and still is) so hard for me. I (we) loved Childress. We have gotten so close and involved in that great community. But atleast we get to keep in touch with everyone because of FACEBOOK and my weekly trips to Childress to check on F3.

We sold our house.....God is good. We sold our house in a very timely manner... It didn't seem like that at the time....but now we were truly blessed. We sold it to a great family...the new orthopedic surgeon moving to town this upcoming July. We truly miss our house, and our ADOPTIVE GRANDPARENTS...but we keep in touch...

WE MOVED....We couldn't find a house in Claude that we fell in LOVE with so we decided to least for the time being..... That was a learning experience to say the lease... I pray that we never have to do that again.... between not having AC (didn't work half the time), hot water (didn't work half the time) and SNAKE sized centipedes in my house.... I AM GLAD TO BE OUT OF THERE...

KAITLYN STARTED SCHOOL....:( My oldest started school....are you kidding me? She can't. She was so excited and still is. I am so thankful for Ms. Carol and Ms. Angie for getting her prepared for that day and her future. She loves it. We pray for Mrs. Burton everyday. Kaitlyn is me made over...... GOD BLESS HER! LOL

I opened another gym.....Since the day I opened F3-Childress I always dreamed to have a couple more....5 to be exact....that number might be adjusted after this one.... I was actually going to Dumas to look at the equipment to buy and bring to Claude....but I couldn't find a building in Claude....so I said...WHAT THE HELL....! (I put some thought in it...LOL) and we opened F3-Dumas....it is great and I have a great group of ladies that help me there.... I couldn't do it without the help I have in Childress and Dumas. AND OF COURSE...I have the best members ever.... I still haven't found a building in Claude, but I am teaching aerobics a couple of times during the week to help with my workout and other ladies in town.....
you can follow F3 - on FACEBOOK at - FUN FAMILY FITNESS (search by Childress or Dumas) or on twitter

We bought a new house.....I finally had it...and fortunately we found a house that we could work with....It is a fixer-upper to say the least....but that is ok with me... We haven't had tons of time to work on it...but hopefully we will soon. We painted in from HEAD TO TOE and have been working on the flooring....we will finish the kitchen, dining room, and laundry room flooring HOPEFULLY over Christmas. We also plan to recarpet everything, paint outside, pour a patio, plant...plant...plant....lots of bushes and flowers (if you know me...and my past yard...we have a lot of work ahead of us....I do miss my yard in Childress GREAT DEALS...)

started a new business venture......I was not meaning to really do this as a business venture...but you never know how life will go... I have a friend that started on ISAGENIX last year and lost 30 lbs and and lots of inches in ONLY 45 days. She has been asking me to try it for a LONG time...so I finally did....told her with no promises...I am not a sales person and DO NOT PUSH any products or anything on any of my friends and clients....but I have totally seen a difference in not only me, but others that have tried it....that I am a believer.....ISAGENIX is a system that helps your body naturally cleanse...which will lead to losing weight and making your overall health....EXPLODE...(again...I am not pushing this on you...but if you would like to check it out....go to my website at http://funfamilyfitness.isagenix.com and watch the videos on the bottom. It will transform your life...it has mine and my family in more ways than one...You can also call me at (806) 231-9620 or email me at stepholli@yahoo.com for more information... Be happy to help you MAINTAIN and NOT GAIN during the holidays and possibly lose....

I hope that all is good...and now that things are kinda settlin' down....
I will try to keep up on my blog...

GOD BLESS
YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
THIS HOLIDAY SEASON...
MERRY CHRISTMAS
