Hey there!! I am pulling my head out of my computer......well, actually I guess I haven't pulled my head out of the computer since I'm typing this on my computer......BUT I've pulled my head out of my work program on my computer long enough to type this!

I've been missing my blogging!

So much has been going on. We are still waiting to hear back on the home our son put the offer in on and they have 3 days to get into contract so we shall see what happens on that one.... (fingers crossed)

Work has been crazy busy to which I am so grateful for the work but it's not giving me much time to daydream about our trip to Maui..... The weeks are flying past though.

I have not being doing so well on my diet this week....... I've not done awful and I keep dusting myself off and jumping back on that train but this isn't my shining week so far. I did earn the title of "The biggest loser" again last Friday and I am excited about that! BUT not so sure I will claim it again this week.

I refuse to get too down on myself though, I've been doing great. I feel so much better and I will not let a few poop a loop days make me throw it all away. This is something I would have done in the past....... I will NOT do that this time...... will NOT......will NOT......will Not....

Say it with me now "WILL NOT DO IT THIS TIME"...... We will reach our goal and we are going to be doing the skinny dance together.

I also wanted to let you know that I WILL BE HAVING A GIVEAWAY SOON..... I was contacted by a company who has offered for me to do a review or giveaway one of their products. I say GIVEAWAY...... so fun to see who wins and give something to all you faithful readers!

I'll keep you posted as soon as I have more information on that, but spread the word and keep an eye out!

Well, the time has come that I get off my duff and drag it to the kitchen and make something for my family for dinner...... I don't think they will go for the microwave popcorn that I feel like making......OK, so I don't even feel like making that......I'm poooooooooooped tonight... But I took out hangaburger (hamburger for all of you who don't remember how 4 year olds say it) meat, so I need to make a plan here...

I know, if I had been as organized as I'm supposed to be I would already know exactly what I'm doing with that meat........in fact I would have already had it in a crockpot and I'd be telling you all that I'm off to set the table for the dinner I so thoughtfully put in the crockpot this morning.

But.......I didn't.........so I'm not..........so....

Microwave popcorn anyone?



Maybe not.....

Probably though......

Ok, enough of my goo goo mush brain talk for tonight...

I really must go make dinner now (the visual is my head down, dragging my feet and sniffing all the way to the kitchen).......

HAMBURGERS.........yep, that is what is for dinner...... Hunk can BBQ..... I'll go ahead and break out the mayo and mustard....... I'm a helper like that.

Love and miss you all!

Don't forget to check back for the giveaway!!!


Ciao Bellas~


  1. What a great solution - make HIM cook on the grill - hoho. It's one of my fave solutions, too. I'd love MW popcorn but it's not on my to-eat list. That's a very short list, BTW. But it's all in the skinny dance we'll be doing - and the splits. Mustn't forget about the SPLITS!!!

  2. Hunk BBQ'd hamburgers.......I heated up some frozen corn and broke out the fruit.... easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    Haven't forgotten about the SPLITS!!! So doing that split-off. LOL

    Gotta go pick out the giveaway prize!

  3. Hang in there with the diet!!! You can do it ... and don't beat yourself up when things don't go exactly like you thought!!! (Which I can do at the drop of a hat!)

    Hamburgers are always a good idea!

  4. Thank you cottage Girl! I am back in the saddle today with the diet. Feeling great about it. Woot Woot!!.......the train is back on it's tracks. Thank you so much for your encouragement! (((((hugs)))))
