Random happenings

Here are some pictures I took of the girls this past Saturday. Emma as usual wasn't interested. She's never been the "ham" that Bella has been since the beginning of time.


So I'm sure you are all tired of my weight loss saga.....but I did an "official" weigh in today at the gym. I am down another pound. I have now lost a total of 15 lbs. So I guess I have officially reached my goal. But of course, now that I am there I am going to try for a few more. =) It is amazing what a difference 15 pounds makes...in my clothes, in how I feel about how I look. I put on a pair of capri pants this afternoon that the last time I tried them on this past summer I immediately took them off as they looked as if they were painted on me. I remember being quite disgusted and wondering if I would ever be able to wear them again. Well I'm pleased to say that I won't be able to wear them again because they are now huge! With a little effort I am able to pull them straight off of me (which is quite dangerous at my house...the girls think it is quite funny to depants mom).

Speaking of capri pants...the weather here was gorgeous today....sunny and my car thermometer said 75 (it's usually not that far off). This is getting to be the time of year where I love where I live (winter...not so much).

So I got a new bedspread...it's a little girly. I've never had a girly bedspread so it will take some getting used to. Think I like it though. I bought the Euro shams with it (26x26") so tonight I went to Walmart (I HATE that place....everytime I go in which is not that often anymore...I remember why I hate it so much) and bought some 1.00/yard plain fabric and made myself some 26x26" pillows to put in the shams. My sewing machine seemed very happy to be sewing fabric, I don't think it has EVER done that before. It has only sewed paper =P . Well that is all for now...oh..one more thing, I am proud to report that last night I actually did go to bed early. Lights were turned off at 11:13. Amazing. Now I'm so energized I could probably stay up all night. Bad part about getting enough sleep. Anyway...have a good day.
