Power outage…and front page success!

January 31, 2008

First off, thank you CW for voting me to the front page for the first time..ever! I’ve had a site for 6-7 years now..so….YaY! Success! xoxoxo

So..I’ve been MIA for the past couple days..but not on purpose! I have an excuse, promise. I’ve been huddled up in bed in about 10 layers of blankets shiverin my boobies off due to a power outage here in Rochester NY.  It went out yesterday morning round 8am..and with temps in teens the house temperature didn’t take too long to drop to unbearably cold living temperatures. 38 degrees on the thermostat? Not cool. Ry went out like the sweetheart he is scouring stores fro some sort of heating device at about 11pm last night when we found out from our electric company their 7:45pm estimate was blown way out the window to the next day, tonight at 11pm. He started out with a kerosene heater since generators were picked over at Lowe’s..but when the house ended up smoky and stinky (and we worried of carbon monoxide poisoning) that idea went out the window and he was back out again in search of a generator. Almost getting mugged by a creepy in walmart and 300 some dollars later..we had a generator. Little after midnight now. So you think this is where the story gets all happy and we dance about happily with warm tooshies by the furnace. Nope. Our furnance decided to be finicky about actually heating the house with the generator. It’d start up, sure..but ignite? Ha! That’d be too easy! Ry finally got it to ignite and start warming house around 2am..but when we woke around 7am it was back to blowing cold air. Long story short..or at least to sum this up without completely boring you to death..I’ve been able to log on n offline recently due to our little generator (especially since the heater isn’t taking too fondly too it)..and I think our electricity might be back up for good now around 5pm.. We have an ice storm headin our way tonight and tomorrow though..so I’m not keeping my hopes up that it’ll stay that way. If I disappear again, you know why.

Anywho..I feel like a crumbbum since I’ve needed to shower since yesterday and haven’t had the heat or warm water to do so..so I’m off to clean up and figure out some dinner.


Why am I soo tired?

January 28, 2008

I’m so tired lately, it’s driving me nuts. I know I go to bed late..but I have the hardest time fully waking up enough to climb out of bed before 10am. I haaate it. Between working on my design business, working in my fitness schedule..and finding a little time to also devote to some entertainment 10am is just too late for me to be waking up. Ergh. I don’t know what my deal is..maybe a vitamin defiency somewhere? Hmmn..

Anywho..just a short blog. I need to get back to working on my websites. I’m also trying to learn how to use WoW Auctioneer..wee goldz for mez! OH! For the first time I may..MAY…make Camwhores front page…I have till Thursday to get my votes up. Please ++ me! <3 <3

Just Me..

January 24, 2008

Hmmn..how did my picture/site become first in google image search for cam girls? It’s my big smiling face and then a bunch of nudies..hehee. Word.

So, I’m procrastinating. I decided I need to do some cleaning today. not the usual pick up round the house..do dishes..laundry cleaning. I’m pullin’ out the big guns today. Oh yes. My shark steamer is totally gonna kick my kitchen and bathroom floor’s ass. My dog is too curious and has an intelligence of -2 though, so I’;m sure she’ll get in the way and make the process a pain.

I’ve further succeeded in my weight loss goals, I weighed in yesterday at 147.6 😀 YaY! I also took measurements and I’m now at 32c-27-37..so in total I’ve lost 4 inches around hips and 3 around waist..just a couple more on each and I’m ready for bikini weather in 5-6 months..I couldn’t be more on track. Wweoeeoooo. I think these are so cute!

My Run is Done, yay.

January 21, 2008

Well I just finished my run for today..so I need to shower! Feels good though! I did an old routine on the treadmill I used to do about a year and a half ago where I slowly increase incline to max and then back down over a span of 20 mins..and then flat out jog the remaining 25 minutes. Managed about 3.2 miles, all at some kind of incline. I want to work this back into my workout schedule more often, as I was using this most of the time when I was in my best shape in June 2006. Slowly but surely I -will- get back to that phyiscally, hopefully by summer!

When Ry and I bought our house and moved up to Rochester I quit my job in Buffalo and it really did a number on me physically to have a complete change in environment and schedule. Working from home I picked up bad habits of eating unhealthy big portions every meal of the day and then I was too consumed in working online, taking care ofmy new emo puppy and..*couch* playing MMORPG’s..*cough* to workout. Long story short, over a year I ended up putting on almost 20 pounds. 160. OUCH! Yes. I’m not going to be one of those girls who fake it in their profiles because they are embarrassed to admit their weight. Not gonna name any names. But ya 😉 I am what I am, you get what you see. I know I’m not fat, but I definitely gained too quickly over one years time and was just unhealthy. I’ve gotten better though, I’m now at 148 and still losing!

Since October I’ve gotten back on track. For the past 3 and a half months I’ve lost 12 pounds of what I gained by simply by adding workouts back into my schedule 3-4 days a week (usually Mon, Wed, Fri..sometimes Sat), and watching what I eat on weekdays..sticking to 1200-1700 calories a day. (No more nightly sundaes! lol) I’m too huge a foodie to just diet every single day..so on weekends I loosen up the reigns a bit and allow myself to eat some of the things I don’t allow myself to have during the weekdays..a hot dog.. some takeout, a big bowl of ice cream..Yum! I’d go crazy if I couldn’t eat some of the yummy junk I love at least at some point during the week. Hey, it’s working! Maybe not as quickly as if I was to stick to it every day..but 12 pounds is a huge loss for me (about a pound a week), and I’m happy. My goal weight is to be around 135-140 (which is perfect for my height, 5’8″-5’9″). I just want to fit back into my sz 4 denim mini for summer. I know I’ll never be a size zero..but I don’t want to be! Working out has made me gain lean muscle in so many places, especially my legs…that there’d be nooo way I’d ever manage to be that tiny without losing my muscle. I was size zero when I was “skinny-fat”, not eating a ton and never working out. I prefer the more fit me 😀 10-15 more pounds lost by summer..and sexy bikinis! That is my goal. Huzzah!

Wow you really projected on that one!

Ah..American Idol. While I haven’t watched the season fully through for years, I can’t help but be drawn to the auditions every year. Why?? People like this guy. He sings a very special rendition of Living on a Prayer. Funny thing is, Ry and I would yell/sing this song when he drove me to classes years ago..and I -think- our yelling was more..accurate? Anywho..hereeee’s Douglas!

“You’re whispering..and panting..and just doing strange stuff…”


Domain Acting Strange, bear with me!

January 16, 2008

For some reason my domain redirected great yesterday…and reversed itself to old hosting again this morning….only to now once again point here!

If you visit my page and get a blank page with a link to my site that doesn’t work (http://www.enrapture.net) please just bear with me while my domain straightens itself out over the next 24-72 hours. For some reason it is sporatically pointing to old hosting and then back to the correct hosting again! I no longer have access to change anything on the old host so i can’t explain anything on there.

Please be patient! 😀 Things should be running smoothly again(hopefully) by the weekend.

My Life..srsly..an update??

January 15, 2008

YaIknow. It’s literally been about 4-5 months since I’ve blogged. I’m a slacker. Err..was? The site has been completely rebuilt into WordPress now and I love it. It’s organized, it’s easy. I’m back now, with more to say than ever before! (Maybe.) Squee!

So here’s the biggest news as of late..ready?

I’m Engaged!

Yep. Completely and officially. Not planning a wedding until 2009 or so, but I have the ring and it’s about as beautiful as it could possibly be! Ry had a little speech and got down on one knee at midnight new years eve going into new years day and proposed. Of course I said yes! Couldn’t be happier. I’m all dorky and have a little wedding planning binder and it’s all ready for me to plan, plan away! I’m excited!

Other than that, I was just extremely, extremely busy – especially over the holidays! I’ve been trying to get my design/web business built from scratch, dieting and working out to lose the 20 pounds I put on when I moved out here to Rochester a year ago (12lb down, 8-15 to go! haven’t decided how much I want to lose yet!), and just taking care of the house, pets and fiance as best as I possibly can. The days fly by! There aren’t nearly enough minutes in a day for me to get everything done I want to fit in everyday. I guess it doesn’t help either when you re-activate your WoW account and become briefly obsessed, again.

So ya..that’s what you’ve missed in a nutshell. I plan on being a lot more active here on enrapture now tho, so bookmark me! I want to expand my blogs now to not only cover my daily happenings but my wedding planning, fitness and dieting tips and news, things I find funny..cooking..food..videos.. randomness… I could go on forever! Basically, much more blog content. Thanks to everyone who has stuck by me over the years(almost 7 now!) when I’ve been slacking, and welcome all my new visitors 😀

Work in Progress?

Well I think I’ve just about transferred and rebuilt everything, so I’ve redirected nameservers now.. I’m live with my new shiz any day now! Please bear with me if there are any dead links or errors while I adjust everything to the new hosting. Portal and Gallery will return when the nameservers redirect.

On another note, why does my dog always kick me when she’s laying on my lap? Little snot. She smells like old Cheetos.

Brand New Year..Brand New Site :D

January 11, 2008

It’s a new year and I’ve finally rebuilt the site..

It’s all run on WordPress(well..mostly!)..and well, it’s pretty spiffy! Yessiree bob.

Stay tuned..I’m back!
