Spring Weather = :)

It's such a beautiful spring day outside!  Me lovin this 70 degree weather.  :)  Cade and Mila and I have been soaking up the sun on a blanket spread out on the grass.  We giggled and had a grass fight and loved on each other.  I heart my family.

 Trying to remember the good that surrounds me to negate the bad.  Being publicly slandered isn't fun.  It actually really hurts.  But I guess that I have to remember that people can be mean and nasty and not everyone is going to like me.  I guess I was just floored because I would NEVER do that to another person, so to have it done to me...ouch.  Like, be mean to me, okay, but be mean on a forum as public as your blog and bitch about me to make yourself feel better?  Really?  Are we twelve or are we adults?  Immaturity at it's finest, that's for sure.  But I am all about flushing out the toxic in my life and starting over fresh and new and so I'm going to keep my chin up and be rest assured that I am making the right decision.  Being nice forever!  Mean and toxic people get out of my life forever!  Recovery forever!  Relapse never!  Woo hoo! 

This weekend should be great.  We're starting it off by seeing The Hunger Games tonight, I am so excited!  Cade also has his first spring soccer game tomorrow morning, so it'll be interesting to see how that goes.  And I'm going to post an update on the house tomorrow, so be lookin for that.  :)

 Photo - Mine and Sissy's church outfits match.  :)  Love the spring peachy colors!

That's all, I supposies.  Don't have much to say, other than that I:
Am lovin me this spring weather and I am going to let it keep me cheered in the midst of all the crappy drama happening in my life
also just be nice to other people.  Being mean and vindictive is no way to live.  It'll make you mean and ugly when you don't need to be.  My name is Brie and I approve of this message.

Have a great weekend!

I approve of your message too :) I'm dealing with people acting like jr high kids at work of all places and it's getting old... Some day people will all realize that being nice is much easier. :) (PS, your kids are SO CUTE!)

You have the cutest baby girl I have ever seen, and I am not just saying that to be nice!

I'm sorry to hear about the drama, but I like your good attitude about the weekend and the weather! You and the kids look so wonderful and happy, and I love the matching outfit with Mila! Just precious! Enjoy the weather and the weekend!

I think your message is positive and uplifting. Friendships are important, but at the end of the day, keeping yourself healthy and well are MORE important. I think you definitely made the best choice possible for you.
If someone wants to bash you, that's on them. Don't let their negative message bring you down, because your recovery is amazing and REAL.
Yours is one of very select blogs I can still read, because it makes me feel that staying in recovery is worth it and achievable.
I think you rock and you made a great decision.
You and your family are so adorable! You are truly blessed :)

Take care!

I like you.

Just so you're aware: even though we didn't know each other super well throughout junior high and high school, I've always thought you were one of the most genuinely kind people I've ever met.

Oh Mila is so adorable in both photos. I am also proud of you for rolling with the punches. I know it's hard but recovery wins every time!

It's never easy to lose friends and I'm sorry you've had to go through this.
I'm loving the spring weather as well, it's been uncharacteristically warm here in Michigan.
I love your and Mila's church outfits. So cute

It's 70 degrees there? Oh man, I knew I was visiting Utah for a reason! I just spent the last few minutes reading your last several posts. Just so you know I went through the same thing. I did it the dramatic way and deleted everyone I met from cfc or who had active eds off facebook, quit associating with them and realized all of my friends had eating disorders and I was pretty lonely for a while. But I did it! I made healthy friends, was able to recover and stay recovered. It wasn't until about a year ago I started accepting friend requests again from people I met from the center, but I only re-added those who were in a healthy place or at least didn't post about their drama on facebook constantly. And occasionally I have to re-delete people. I'm sorry some people responded negatively to your decision. They will understand once they are ready to recover too. But it doesn't make it any easier. There are days I (for crazy reasons) miss that atmosphere and miss the ed drama and wanting to be sick. Those are the days I look at my beautiful little girl and remember I chose to recover and get rid of all the toxic people in my life so that my children would never have to grow up with that in their lives. I want my kids to grow up in the healthiest environment I can make for them. Anywho, sorry so long, just wanted to tell you that I think you made the right decision. Grats on the new house!!

You're doing all the "right" things.
This is just yet another step in your recovery.
Being recovered is amazing and you deserve that.
Stay strong beautiful <3
