Hi, my name is Candice and I'm a dietpepsiaholic..

I have recently been thinking and working really hard on my self improvement. There is a whole long list that I won't bore you with at this time but here is one I've started with...

I have given up caffeine. I have never gone this long without a soda! I know sad, right?
It's been a little over a week and the terrible headaches are starting to subside. I've been doing this trying to listen to what my body wants instead of my head thing lately and I started realizing this thing I love ( the almighty D.P.) was something I did out of habit or craving more than thirst and enjoyment.

Two things I realized. First, that after I drank it, I didn't feel very good. Now, I love Diet Pepsi the most when I haven't had it in a long time and I'm actually really thirsty but when I drink it as much as I was, it didn't even taste good anymore.

Second, I know that struggling this much to come off of a beverage can not be good for me or even okay for me! I think that once I get this under control I might occasionally have a non caffeinated soda but for right now they are outta here.

Goodbye Fair Oaks, Hello Auburn

We are moving... again! (June 26th) We are so very very sad to leave our ward. We love it so much. It's like saying goodbye to our friends and family. I am particularly sad to leave my Young Women. Ach! It's making me cry just typing this out! We are doing it for a good reason though.

We are gonna live in my parent's empty house until it sells, so that will be a good opportunity for us to save money and get ready for Parker's final stretch of school and BABIES!!! No, I'm not pregnant yet but we are trying! ( Time seems to completely slow to a crawl while waiting o be pregnant... it's awful!)

I feel like I am having to sacrifice so much right now (working at my job, living out of boxes for an unknown amount of time, leaving my ward family, cutting out every unnecessary thing to save money) but as soon as I remember my goal of a family, it becomes totally worth it. Shame on me for waiting as long as I have ( something I will regret for the rest of my life).

Thank you to my own parents, as I am now starting to be able to fully appreciate the sacrifice it takes to start and support a family.

We love where we have lived and are sorry to leave but it will be for the best... I'm sure.
