Scappers overload

So for some reason I got out of the 'habit' of posting my layouts. I have been doing them but when I finish them, the designers don't have the kit available in the stores yet so I wait thinking I will post it when it DOES go in the store.. umm...well...I am lacking in memory cells, time, and motivation lately so I just simply dropped the ball. But it's time to get serious again. So here goes nothing....ready for layout overload?

Winter Storm!!

Finally finally finally. We got snow! WAHOOO!! Hard to really tell how much due to blowing but I'd say more than 8" for sure. It's all light and fluffy! The windy will pick up today and they say 30 mph windy will cause 3-4 foot drifts! AHhhh...this is a MICHIGAN WINTER!! No school today! All but 2 of my patients have cancelled for today. I have a 3 & 4 o'clock and was told I don't have to come in if I don't want to so the jury is still out on whether I want to or not! LOL
My guess is no but we shall see. I might have to make the decision. Those two pts might just cancel on me! Then I won't feel bad about not going in.

Pics to come later. I have NOT ventured out yet. I have been taking pics from the house! I will be going out later today. We are going sledding after Zander's friend gets here. I'll take my little camera with us.

Oh...and guess who's lost even more weight this morning. I'm cooking with gas again!! FINALLY! Feels so good! Have I said yet how PROUD I am of myself? I truly I am. I'm so motivated and loving this journey. I just need to get that exercising thing down better. I will in the spring...promise.

Plateau GONE!

It took me 6 weeks to move out of the last 10 pound weight bracket. Then this BAM...I have lost 4.8 in ONE WEEK? WTH?? I have not done anything different this week than ever before. Other than less working out? My foot has been bothering me and with my crazy schedule I have not had time nor energy to bother with Wii fit stuff.

So I have officially lost 41.8 pounds! Now I will admit that sounds like a lot. Finally. And I think people are finally starting to notice. I had a patient walk in on Thursday and ask how long I have worked there? I laughed at her and go, oh 7 just years. And she looked at me and then goes...Oh my! You are my normal girl!? LOL She said, you look different. I said, Yeah, I cut my hair. And then the receptionist yells in, 'tell her the truth, you've lost nearly 40 pounds.'

So even in my baggie scrubs people are starting to see it. Finally. I think I need to go scrub shopping some time too but I just HATE it. I have to order from a catalog and I have no clue what size to get. Will I ever get to the point that I love to shop and try on clothes?? It's always been so depressing and ugly that I have just grown to hate it.

So anyways....YAY ME!!

Out of sorts

I'm going through something draining and it's really bringing me down. Spent the last couple of days with a ton of tears rolling down my checks. Not sure exactly what my issue(s) are but I'm ready to have it move on out of the head/heart. This too shall pass.

On ward and upward. Sunshine is what I really need. I love my snow but I'm ready for some sun for sure. It can be cold..just shine!

I have had the honor of working with a huge collab coming to shabby pickle soon. And a super soft and lovely (purple) kit by KH and someone else! So life is not sooo bad, right! I need to learn to let things roll off my back. I don't need to carry any more weight on my shoulders right now. I hit 38 pounds gone today! I smell 40 and it smells so wonderful! Think I will feel the same when I say 40 in November?! LOL I doubt it! heehee

List Girl has a store front!

So as many of you know from little rants here, that I just adore List Girl AKA Christine Newman. I followed her Project 365 last year and was amazed when I saw the templates she was kicking out too. So, I find out today that she is now at Little Dreamers Designs!! Whoot!! And she's have a sale! I just picked up all the letter templates she has in her store to date. They are 25% off for then few days. I get NOTHING in return for saying this...I just adore her work and want to share my finds with you. I actually spent hard earned money on myself! Shocking, I know~

Anywho...for what it worth...I adore this lady. I feel like she's gonna think I am stalking her or something...which I guess in my own odd way, I am! LOL I know good things when I see them! And this is a real good thing!
