Today's # is SIXTY

Sixty pounds have been shed in 2011 by ME!  I sent a goal earlier this year to lose 60 pounds in 2011.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would make it.  I didn't give myself enough credit because I made it!

60 pounds equals 

240 sticks of butter
3.5 Sammy's

Pictures to follow in the next week or so.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from my friend the Zebra!!!  Is this not the most adorable zebra you have ever seen?  OMG I just love her!!!!

Squirrelly Dog

Our little baby will be dressing up as a Squirrel for Halloween!  He was so excited when he saw the bag come home. He kept jumping up on the ottoman trying to get into the bag. Then I pulled the outfit out & put it on him. He was NOT happy to see it was something he had to wear! He is just adorable as a squirrel!

Wedding Pinterest

my little cousin just got engaged and i have been all about wedding stuff again. i am so very excited for her!!!  here are some adorable things i found on pinterest!

how cute are these shoes with the diamond ring!

love, love, love this pic!

i think this is so sweet! i wish i had decided to see Art prior to our wedding. we were both very traditional and would not see each other. he took it to the extreme that he wouldn't even talk to me on the phone before our wedding. the first words we said to each other were at the alter.

love this for thank you cards

i am a HUGE scrabble lover, so i love this idea for save the date cards

this couple looks like so much fun!

Great Book

If you are thinking of having a baby this is the GREATEST book to read!  It explains things so thorough and has TONS of great helpful information.  I highly recommend it to everyone even if you have a child and are thinking of having another one.  Dr. Sami David and Jill Blakeway explain things in normal layman terms. 

Another great thing about this book is they try to discourage IVF and fertility drugs. Doctors just love to push fertility drugs and IVF on their patience. Sometimes that is the only option, but Dr. Sami David tries everything else possible before IVF.

Western & Eastern medicine is suggested. Little things people can do to increase their fertility is all explained in the book. It really is a must read!

This is good advice! I try not to ever answer emails when I am angry.  When one of my employees asks me for a favor and I am mad, I do not answer them until I have cooled off.  One of them recently asked me for a day off when there were other people out. I irritated with other nonsense going on, so I didn't answer them. I gave her the day off because she is such a hard worker and deserved the time. If I had answered during that irritated moment it would have been NO! 

I don't like the word promise.  It has always irritated me when kids say well you promised. Did the parent actually say I promise blah blah. It is just an irritating word/phrase.  I don't make promises! I also don't try to break committments.

While I am stashing through the snow I am going to need this mustache cozy for my tea!

Menu Monday

I am starting back on the HCG diet today. It will be meat & veggies only around here. No carbs or sugars.  I am going to make Art the same things that I make for dinner.

Red peppers stuffed with ground turkey meat
Grilled chicken & steamed broccoli
Turkey burgers

The rest of the week I will have to figure it out as we go.

Non Slip Rugs

I found this FABULOUS idea on Pinterest. I have 2 rugs that slide all over the place.  Pinterest showed if you put caulking under the rug it will stop the slip. I bought a $1.50 tube of caulking, used a small amount for the back of the rug, let it dry for a couple days, and wa-la no slip rug!

Remember the mustard sweatshirt that I love?  Guess what I found at Old Navy in the mens section this past weekend!!!!!  The sweatshirt!!!!!  The sweatshirt is missing the hood, but has the front pocket and 3 buttons down the front. Eeekkk!!!!  I can't find them online, but they do have them in the store in black, gray, navy and burgandy. The sweatshirt was $35 bucks & 50% off.  I am now an owner of the navy blue!

Kendra I didn't make it and not buy any clothes :(  I also found a pair of jeans for $6 bucks.  They had so many great deals at Old Navy this past weekend!

Hunting & Brett Favre

Gander Mountain & Remington are giving away a hunting trip with Brett Favre!  My grandpa called me over the weekend to let me know he entered the contest.  He said if he wins I can go in his place.  I can hear the angels singing haaalleeeeluuuujaaaaah!!!!

Grandpa said he would be going back to Gander Mountain on Sunday to put Art and my name in for the contest too!  If one of us won this could be the most exciting day of my life to hunt with Brett Favre. lol

If you would like to enter my name in daily here is the link.
