Thousand Words Thursday

I was soooo excited to get a photo shoot with our dear friends' daughter Kayley. She is five years old and was diagnosed with leukemia last September. Cancer SUCKS!!!! Bottom line, however, she is such a fighter and takes the punches one after another without even flinching. She is an amazing little girl with such a strong spirit and an infectious smile. This is one my favorites from our photo shoot that day.

Not Me Monday

I did not jump for joy when I saw it was going to be 43 degrees this weekend!!! The flip flops are soooo coming out!!!
I did not scream for joy when I took my son to the doctor for the 3rd time this month when the doc gave him a prescription for cough medicine with codeine!!!! Simply because I knew we would finally BOTH get a good nights sleep!!!
And since we live in a "lake effect snow" area and am currently surrounded by a lot of snow.....I did not instantly get into a fabulous mood when I went to the tanner for the first time yesterday. There is nothing better than the smell of coconut and pina colada and a bit of a tan to make my fat look better!!!!!

Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
I'm getting really tired of 18 degrees and snow. So, if I were to win $150,000, the first thing I would do is book tickets to a sandy beach for my family!!!
What would be the FIRST thing you would do if you won a little extra cash?

Random Tuesday Thoughts

Wow!!! How is that for a "break" from blogging? Six months have gone by and I think I'm ready to jump back in.
So what has been going on? My sister has gotten engaged. How does this effect my life? Well, first I'm very happy for her and will hopefully have a baby to cuddle soon after the vows. Second, she has asked me to be her Maid of Honor, which is wonderful except that every other lovely lady in the wedding party is a skinny beyotch!!!! I say that with the most lovingly tone as they are all FABULOUS girls!!!!
So, she was engaged in October and the wedding is in May. Why on earth would I get serious about losing weight until 3 months before the big day? I am big on counting "something" while trying to drop some pounds whether it be calories, fat grams , points, etc. So I started counting points last know, the whole weight watchers thing. Why did I choose this method? Simply because the other two weren't working this time around. I'm still doing cardio (not killing myself, just a mere mile or so), strength training (push ups, squats, lunges, dips, etc.) and making a LOT better food choices (this has really been my downfall since I LOVE sweets and carbs). So, I have dropped 4.4lbs this week!!!! I know it's not healthy to drop more than 2 per week, but let's face it, I was eating crap before and most of that is probably water weight!!!
My kids have been passing a "viral infection" back and forth for the past month and it is getting rather irritating. At least we haven't had the "pukey" flu yet. That is one thing I can't stand!!!
I am in the process of planning a bachelorette party. Any ideas/input would be greatly appreciated.......
