It's time....

Time to start buckling down on the weight loss issue. I have 22 days until I am in Savannah, Georgia visiting the above photo (Mansion on Forsyth Park). Chris and I will be joining one of my besties Sarah, her husband Mike and two other couples to help celebrate Sarah's 30th Birthday.

I thought I was doing a good job with not eating out nearly as much as I have in the past and I have been cooking at home more.  I've been going to the gym pretty much Monday -Friday and some Saturdays... I may or may not have went my birthday week... but that doesn't count.  And I haven't seen any results.. and the scale ...well, that definitely hasn't shown me any love.

So here it goes.. I weigh a whopping 165. And I have 22 days to lose AT LEAST 10 to 15 pounds!

So wish me luck. Please and Thank yous!

I will post my weight weekly to see if I have lost anything.

swap goodies

 I am so far behind on posting! But I finally found my camera cord so I could download my goodies I received from my swap partner Carey.  The above picture is the card and cute little box my accessories came in.

 The cute box by itself.. I love the big pink flower on it.
 My goodies on the inside.. I received a cute headband.. which I am super excited to use this Spring/Summer. A beaded bracelet which is perfect since majority of my clothes are black so it will go with pretty much everything. And last but not least.. the pretty flower ring.. I am not much of a ring person, but this ring is adorable on.. I can't wait for a night out so I can sport it.
And one final view of all my stuff and the card outside of the envelope.

AGAIN Carey.. I LOVE everything that was sent to me. =)

I hate surprises......

I don't know if everyone else (family) knows something I don't know?!?

Let me explain.. YES, Chris and I have been dating for 4 years!  So naturally I am always getting asked (mostly) by his friends when I am finally getting a ring. Well buddies.. your guess is as good as mine. I always tell them to ask Chris, and I tend not to eavesdrop because I don't want to get discouraged with his answer. His normal response is.... " She needs to get her act right first!"

Anyhoo..... lets bring it back to this past weekend.. Chris has started softball again, and the two things I get out of  his teammates are.... Are you engaged yet? or they lift up my left hand to see if there is any bling. Sorry again boys.. still nothing! 

My sister joined me this weekend, and one of Chris' good friend asked the infamous question.. to which my sister chimes in with....... "it will be soon!"..... umm.... WHAT??? As I choke on my sweet tea... I usually just laugh it off, but then I went to my Mom's house for my Birthday dinner and presents.. and her card said some sentimental stuff.... blah blah blah...... Love, Mom....... "This is going to be a GREAT year!!" ...  

So in my head, I know they know something. But lemme tell you if there is no ring, say by May.... I am not going to count on anything for the rest of the year.

And let me also add that I will be really really (insert sad face here).

Is it just me or is it REALLY ANNOYING when other people eat your food? Whether it be roommates or co-workers. Or am I just being completely unreasonable/ bitchy/ dramatic?

Thoughts please?

Healthy Choice has done-a me right......

Since I am on a quest to loose about 20+ poundage's, and on the quest to eating healthier except for the weekends. My co-worker has turned me on to these delicious quick and easy meals. Not only are they packed with protein but they are only about 230-330 calories. AND you get a pretty decent amount, not like those "other" brands that barely have anything in them and you feel like you can eat 5 of them. 

Have any of you tried these? If not... and you are looking for a healthy lunch thing for work these would def. be my number one choice...... and in case you wanted to know what my second choice would be.. it would be Chick Fil A which isntsohealthy!

A little bit of this..... a little bit of that.......

First thing first...  Mrs.Bear over @ Think Happy Thoughts tagged me for an award.

Name of the game...to list 7 facts about Moi.

1~ I have an obsession with Cook Books... I barely use them when I do cook, but I still can't get enough of them.

2~ I am a Spring and Fall girl. (I love the beach... but don't love the 100+ degree weather sweating and having the sand stick to you and then having to get in the car.. which is scorching hot! ... and the winter... the 20 degree weather not so nice espesh.. when we never see snow!)

3~ If I get married again.... I want a black wedding dress.

4~ Two of my favorite foods are pasta and fish. I could eat either one of those dishes every night.

5~ I am patiently waiting for a certain black diamond to be placed on my left ring finger.

6~ I have an obsession with the crossword and find the difference in the pictures in the PEOPLE magazines.

7~ My new favorite summer drink is a RUBY RED CRUSH one of the local hot spot's here in Virginia Beach Waterman's is know for there Orange crushes, but last year they started the Ruby Red one.. and let me tell you it is TO.DIE.FOR! (the first link has both the orange and ruby red one)

Now I am suppose to pick some gals to pass this on too! But it's always hard for me to pick. So I pass this along to all of you! =)
