Take a minute and watch this video shared by Jillian Michaels of a woman who went to the gym everyday for 100 days and made a time lapse video.
I hope your 200 followers liked the fat shaming. Super classy. At least I’m honest and not a liar like you. Go have yourself some VANILLA ice cream and get back to your lame life of stalking me and being a stealing white trash use people bitch.

Danny & I both grew up in the country. Wide open spaces…no neighbors…and lots of beautiful TREES.
The road Danny grew up on & we lived together the first couple years…
When Daynie was about to start school…we bought a house in a sweet, quiet little neighborhood…just to get in the school district.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE our house.
I said when I first saw it..this house was built for me.
It’s huge, has a massive open living/kitchen/dining area perfect for my entertaining, a large master bedroom with closet to die for, tile throughout (perfect for my allergies) and the biggest craft closet you ever did see. The neighborhood is wonderful and you couldn’t ask for better neighbors.
Just one little problem….we want land. And privacy that just doesn’t come in a neighborhood. We want lots of land and lots of trees.
I was already beginning to notice a huge difference in the way my kids were growing up & the way we did. We want a place for our kids to play outside for hours, ride 4-wheelers, shoot guns, go fishing, & just feel that quiet country atmosphere.
I realized this was a serious problem when my kids & I had to jump a gate/fence once a while back and they were clueless as of how to cross. Such a simple thing I take for granted..you’d think it’s just common sense…but for a kid that has never had to do it..they didn’t really know how to start. LOL.
Over the last few years we have been on the lookout for land to build on or a home with land in the area. The summer of 2012 we thought we had found “the perfect home” and it had the perfect amount of land with it. It had EVERYTHING we wanted. A pool, a huge shop, 13 acres, two ponds, and a jack & jill bathroom for the kids! Again..when I saw the house…I had this overwhelming feeling that the house was built for me. We immediately secured a contract and put our house on the market. We were tight lipped about it because we didn’t want to jinx it!
And then we waited.
Here we are over a year and a half later and our house hasn’t sold…but our dream home has.
I was a little sad but I knew the whole time that it was completely out of our hands. We did everything possible to make it happen and if it didn’t…then that was God’s plans.
We kept our house on the market awhile longer as we explored our options and made decisions. Houses are just not moving in the area. I think in a couple of years after the new school is built and people are desperate to get in the district again..we will have better luck. Danny just wants land now. So we looked for something that we can buy to go spend weekends & holidays that we could afford. Something we can do all the things we want to. And we found it. So we took our house off the market for now. We will try to sell again later on. Then we will find a large acre tract and build our forever home on it.
The land we found for our family for now..while we keep our current home… is about 20 min from our house. It’s a six acre tract that is lined by a creek. on 3 sides. Adjacent to one side is 30 acres owned by Danny’s family.
Our little piece of paradise is just perfect for what we want it for. It has a massive in ground pool & hot tub. It has a pump room for the pool that is huge and has a bathroom/shower. Beautiful landscaping. There is so much detail even in the driveway pavement/edging. There is a treehouse/fort built into a tree for the kids. And it has a cute little cabin! At one time it actually had an over 4000 square foot house built on it that burned down. So now we are left with a HUGE slab.
This piece of property has been sitting dormant for awhile. It needs a lot of work to get it up to date and in working order. Danny & I are so excited to roll up our sleeves & make it our own!
The land is just gorgeous! We already have plans to build a pond! We have sooo many plans for this great place!
For the next few years while our kids are growing…we will use it as a weekend & holiday getaway. A place to relax & swim & enjoy the outdoors. Family & friend get togethers. And parties!
I have a lot of other things up my sleeve though…business opportunities & dreams to make come true. This place is perfect for that too! I saw it the minute I viewed the place!
Texas is turning winter here…& the place needs a lot of work…but here is the pictures of my little piece of paradise in the making….
Here is the retaining wall that is adjacent to the 30 acres…look at all that rock! You can also see part of the driveway.
So much space! I can see my kids riding their atvs now!
I am SOOO in love with this cute little cabin! It’s so perfect for us!
The pool is crazy deep! You can also see the cabin in the background of the top right of the pic below.
Here’s a few pics of the inside of the cabin…we’ve had some big rains lately in East Texas and it flooded the cabin…but we have it fixed now so it won’t flood again. We will tear out the floors & do lots of updating in here..especially the appliances.
I will update ya’ll when we start getting to work on this amazing place!
And when it’s ready to go…PARTAYYYY!! (and yes…I’m going to invite all my awesome blogging friends for a weekend of awesome!)
