So, it seems like all of my friends are into the blogging thing, so I've jumped on the bandwagon. I am LaRay, wife to Charles, Mom to Shauna and full-time Stepmom to Ethan. However, in our house there is no distinction between Mom and StepMom!! I stay very busy with the kids activities, so my life is full of athletic events, Brownies, etc. I've been team mom for every activity the kids have taken part in and am very active in Shauna's Brownie troop. In fact, I'm the Cookie Manager so that means right now I'm VERY busy as it's cookie time again!

In May 2007, I started a serious weight loss journey and have lost 83 pounds. It's been several months since I've actually lost any weight, but I have gotten healthier by morning work outs 5 days a week. I'd like to lose 20-30 more pounds, and I need to get serious about it again!

I'll have crazy stories to share along my path of blogging - some my kids would probably be happier I didn't share! I hope distant family and friends can stay up on our happenings this way!

I'm so proud to be an American right now with the election of our new president!

**Updated -- My friend told me the way I worded that sounded like I was never a proud American before. Those who know me, know that I've always been a proud American. I'm just especially proud of what our country has overcome to get to this point! There ya go, AJsDad!


  1. I knew you couldn't get by with your very first post without a political something or other!

    Freckles' feelings are hurt you know....#2 gets a picture before #1?

    Welcome to the highly addictive world of blogging!

  2. Nice to meet you LaRay, I'm proud to be an American, especially right now.
