So sorry I have been MIA... AGAIN!
I recently changed positions at work, and things have been a little crazy with me having to train and get adjusted to my new digs. The change was one I requested and one that will hopefully lead to bigger and better things for me over the course of the next few years. I have already learned a lot in a short period of time, and I'm looking forward to having an impact on the students in a much different way. Although I was sad to leave my friends in my old office, change is good and I'm excited to be moving on. Hopefully this will the last time for a while, though! I'm tired of moving my things all around the building!!!!
On another note, it's OCTOBER!!!! I can't believe it. Fall is here, & Halloween time is a favorite for our family. The kids get such a kick out of all things Halloween, and Jay & I love to revel in their excitement. Over the next few weekends we will be decorating the house, pumpkin picking, choosing costumes, and carving jack-o-lanterns. There is never a shortage of things for us to do in October! We have a family tradition of going pumpkin picking with our best friends and their two little ones, and I can't wait to do it again this year.
October also marks 1 year since I met my goal weight after having baby M. It took me 11 months to lose roughly 60 pounds, and I can proudly say that I have kept that weight off for 1 year!!!

I have fluctuated 3-5 pounds most of the last year, but that's probably because I'm a little looser with my eating than I
As we get ready for November, which is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, I will be walking with my entire family on Sunday, October 13 at the Lustgarten Foundation's Pancreatic Cancer Walk in honor of my beautiful mother who passed away in 1998 after a 7 month battle with this horrific disease. This cause is very near and dear to my heart, not only because this disease took my mother from us far too young, but because it is one of the deadly forms of cancer with the smallest amount of funding for research. We need to find better treatments and ultimately, a cure. If you would like to join my family and I in the fight against pancreatic cancer, please click here.
