HAPPY NEW YEAR, I guess.

Seven Swans a Swimming. ONE WEEK TO GO!!! I am really looking forward to it. I have my Work Party tonight. Which was just confirmed at 7pm LAST NIGHT. Gotta love a boss who waits until last minute and then expects that we can make it. grrr... in the spirit, in the spirit, in the spirit. Free food, free food, free food, One drink, one drink, one drink. I will laugh and have fun.

Off to town to get one last gift for the Adopt a Student program. We were asked to take the donation that was given and just shop. Heck, yes we will take someone elses money and shop for someone! How fun!!! This one is 17 and we are super excited that we can help out a teenager. They need it more than anyone. Gotta show them that Santa is REAL! We believe and I hope they will too! It's great how life works sometimes. Pay it forward that's my motto!

I helped with a gift for the Football Coaches too. And I finally saw the finished product and man, it turned out awesome!! Good Job Cousin Wendy! Your idea was great and I love how it turned out. I was told by the Wife of one that he knew it had Rachel written all over it! LOL He knows me so well! hahahaha I have it on good measure that he was extremely touched by the gift. It now graces the walls of his work office!
WW is still happening, folks!! I am down 29 pounds and it pleases me. I have been a little more RELAXED this month with all the goodies. But still counting. I just won't NOT eat something this time of year. But I will, keep it in check. One bite is usually enough. Before it would have been a whole piece and probably 2 or 3. So I figure that one small bite or even half of serving is fine. It's called life and I have to live it too! I refuse to be one of those people who freak out about things and tell you shouldn't be eating that or worse..."do you know how many calories that is?" yes, I do, thank you very much! Munch munch munch! LOL
My Dear Friend Shell is Half a world away right now visiting her homeland. And funny, even though I never "see" her. I miss her. I feel like part of my support system is missing! LOL I need to get around and meet with Bev too. I'm missing her big time. There are a few people who I just need to see around the holidays. Keeps me happy. Amy K...I know we don't get together but once a year but I am looking forward to seeing you in the new year. So even if the RDH reunion doesn't work out...let's still meet up for a day of shopping in Lansing or whatever.
Ok...I've rambled on enough. I need to get working on the yearbook. But I have Zero Drive for that right now. I think I might just back burner it until the new year and then come out like gang busters then. I really want this holiday season to be relaxed and I want to ENJOY it for what it was meant for. Shopping is mostly done. Just have a couple of gifts for the Ireland Name Drawing to get. But we have to DRAW FIRST! LOL I have a nice little surprise up my sleeve for one special friend too. I can't wait to see their face when they see it! I love that I am skilled enough to create some great gifts! Makes it so much more enjoyable than buying something! And I think it is appreciated far more too. Just wish the shipping time was faster! Hurry MyPicTales! Hurry!

They are A DOOR A BULL! I have two other boys around here that now think they need one also! LOL Figures! Anywho...if you are out and see them, pick them up. I created a template for them and I am willing to share it. It has a flaw in one corner that I didn't notice until I printed it but it so minor you'd never know. I'd fix but I am way to lazy! LOL

So...Let's talk Biggest Loser. What in the world...59 pounds in 60 days?? WOWSERS...And he's co cute!! I am on the fence for who to vote for amongst the girls. I see positive reasons for both. But I think my heart is telling me-help out the older one! LOL I cried so much last night during that show. Dang, I hate that I am so wrapped up in this emotionally but I truly feel like I can relate and it hits home on so many levels. And I love Amanda because she is me. I have ALWAYS been the big girl. So I can totally understand what her heart feels too. Ahh...We have 10 votes. I gave one away already and I need to use the other 9! LOL Thoughts from those who watch, let's talk!

This was a QuickPage by Libby Weifenbach of SweetShoppeDesigns. I bought the bundle. I have over 400 pictures to scrap. So if any of my designers wanna do a football kit, feel free! LOL So Proud of my little Cousin Drew. He is amazing and I love to watch him but without that fabulous team behind (or in front of him as it actually is) he couldn't do what he does best. This WHOLE TEAM this year has done something that we havent' seen since my little Brother played back in 2003 at the state finals. (which I missed because I was in NYC) So this was my first experience at State. WOW! Amazing!!

So go peek!! And I'd love for you leave a comment since I put myself out there like that. It's the least you could do! LOL Wait...don't! LOL ahhhh...I can't believe I shared that layout with the world. hahahaha If I motivate ONE PERSON, I'm happy!
Thank you GSO for picking me! what an honor!!!

Off to get groceries today, hair cut, and try on some pants. I don't even need to unbutton my jeans to take them off and on now. Probably not a good idea to wear them like that...I'm not into the pants half falling off look. Not my style. Makes me a little sad as I just bought these jeans just before I started WW and I love them. I need to find them in a size smaller. hmmm...Kohl's here I come! I don't like the idea of buying new right now but I need ONE PAIR that will stay on while I am out and about.

1. Tigers are moving on in the playoffs! WHOOT!! 42-41 win in double overtime!!! Victory is so sweet!
2. Moving on with the weight loss! I finally broke another tough battle. I had been at tiny little stand still of sorts. Losing just one pound/week over the past two weeks and this week I did 2.8!! Whoot! Well for my Skinny Jeans contest anyways. My True weigh in day for WW isn't until Tuesday. But hey, I'll take it!
3. I have been MOVING! I went 5 out of 7 days with some form of exercising!!
So there you have it! The word for today is MOVING!! See that little ticker down there on the left side of the ole blog? It now reads 23.6 pounds lost!! It's moving!!!
What's your word for the day?!
