Happy Monday

So, I decided to get my hair done for the wedding we were going to Saturday night. I walked into the salon that my friend Leah works at and she had dyed her hair a dark black with a purple tint. I barely recognized her. It was absolutely gorgeous. So, I said I want that. Mind you I was going in there to get a much needed hair cut and to get my hair styled for the wedding not to get a dramatic color job. So now my hair is BLACK. I do really love it but it’s very dramatic. I will take a picture and post it this week. You can tell me what you think.
We went to my friend Brandy’s wedding reception on Saturday night. It was fun and the food was awesome. She planned this entire wedding on 7000.00 is what I think I heard. She made it took like it cost 20,000. Just goes to show you that you can have a dream wedding on a budget.
Sunday I woke up feeling Saturday. UGH! We had to go to my old place and get the last of my stuff out. I actually still have a dresser and a chair there that I was not in the mood to get. Sunday afternoon I started reading Pillars of the Earth and I didn’t put it down until 10:00 pm. I can’t wait to get home to continue reading it. I love books like that.
This post is long winded so I will leave you all with a HAPPY MONDAY!!

Happy Friday everyone!! What a week. So, last night Brent and I went to Applebee’s because they have a weight watchers menu that is pretty good. I decided to try the steak. Well much to my surprise the steak came out and was the size of a saltine cracker. Apparently this is what a “normal” portion size is supposed to be. Crap!! That explains a lot!! Oh well it was still very tasty and I did find myself very full after eating my two bites of steak, 3 small chunks of potato and a crap loud of broccoli(thats where they fill you up).
So it turns out that we have a wedding to go to on Saturday so I will not be able to make it up to my cabin. This is the 3rd time we planned on going and something’s come up. Brent promised me that we are going next weekend and over the 4th. YAY!! I need to start my summer reading and the cabin is a great place to start.
Have a great weekend everyone J

Thoughts for Thursday

I recently joined Weight Watchers. I haven’t mentioned this on my blog yet because I didn’t want to make this all about my weight loss journey but since it is part of my life now I thought what a better place to share it then on my blog about my life.
In the past 4 years have been slowly gaining weight. I knew that I had to change something when I found myself avoiding having my picture taken because of how I looked. I used to be the picture queen. I would take my camera everywhere and now I avoid it at as much as I can.
I tried weight watchers 6 years ago when I had about 10 pounds to lose and it was successful. Now I have 30 to lose and the journey will be a harder but I am very excited and have approached this with nothing but a positive attitude.
One thing that I love more than anything is to cook and its crazy the fun and creative food you can make when you are watching your weight.
So if anyone would like to share weight loss secrets, stories, recipes, journeys, etc… be my guest. I could use all the thoughts I can get.
Also I have an amazing recipe for a healthy Cheesy potato/chicken Taco bake if anyone wants it. I just threw it together the other night. It was so YUMMY!!!

Happy Hump Day!!

Thank you to my BFF Kristi for introducing me on her page. I received many comments from fellow bloggers from that. Thanks Kristi and thank you to everyone for a warm welcome.

Only two days left until the weekend. Brent and I are heading up to the cabin this weekend for the first time this season. I am very excited to hang out with my new nephew Anthony. What a doll!!

Tonight Brent and I get internet at home FINALLY!! Welcome to 2008, right!! I recently moved in with my boyfriend Brent and he is not what you would call computer savvy. As a matter of fact he thinks the internet is called the interlink. It used to be cute and now I am like HONEY IT'S CALLED THE INTERNET. Needless to say I will need to spend some time showing him how to use our new lap top.
I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

There is a first time for everything!

I never thought that I would start a blog but after years of reading my dear friend Kristi's blog and now her SIL Michele's, I thought I would start my own. They talk so highly about their blog family I felt like I wanted to start.
So today will mark the first day of my blogging career. I am open to tips, suggestions, ideas, etc.. I really have no idea what I am doing. I am just winging it. I have the tendency to blurt so bare with me.
