Anyways, I am now at 269 and that mean I have only 7 more pounds till I have lost 10% of my starting weight! I did that in 9 weeks and now I'm hoping to be closer to 200 than 300 by the end of the summer, with God's help and strength I will stay the course. As you can see if you look at my countdown clock to the right....my 40th birthday is getting closer and closer!!

This is my sweet B all dressed up for her tap recital. She is growing up way to fast!
I need to get to the house work, Rocky is getting off early today so we can go get some stuff for his room. Still not sure if we'll be going to the movies tonight, I guess we'll see how the evening goes, maybe we'll go to Sal & Phil's and get some Royal Reds instead...yummy! For those of you who don't know a Royal Red is a shrimp that tastes like lobster....I promise!
I had a great time at the crop last night and managed to get 3 layouts done, I'll post them after I take pictures of them in a little while, I need to vacuum and deal with my kitchen first.
Have a great day!!

Now, the gorillas are on the bed...
This wall is not painted but I did straighten and organize the desk, so figured that was part of the progress. (Look at previous post and see what it did look like!)
Knives and more knives.......
And these are just the beginning, there are many many many more, but a lot of them will be hanging on the wall and he has to decide what he wants where. Plus we will be adding another shelf for display but have yet to make a decision on what we are getting.
We are going shopping to find curtains or a valance this evening and to look at some more furniture options.....later....
And now for your viewing enjoyment.......

I spent a little bit of time this afternoon surfing the ASF gallery and there is some great stuff from some very talented ladies that has been posted for our viewing pleasure recently. I really enjoyed looking at them and leaving a comment here or there. A few of them were even added to My Favorites for me to peruse again and again until I find the perfect pictures to do a SCRAPLIFT!
As much as I enjoyed cruisin' layouts it made me want to be srappin' tonight instead of painting the "Man Room" at my house. But, I keep reminding myself that next weekend is a 3 day weekend and we have plans to go to the crop on Friday night...so if I get finished with the painting then next weekend can be all about me and my favorite hobby. Can't wait, but I sure do need to take some more every day pictures so I'll have some fun stuff to work with.
Tomorrow is weigh-in and I am hoping to see a loss since I did not see one last week. I've definitely made better choices (except for that 13 point piece of cheesecake at McAlisters on Wednesday- thank God for Flex Points) and have been careful to drink more than enough water, so we will see. That's about it for now, I'll post in the morning with how it went. Have a fantabulous weekend and be a blessing on purpose!!!

I forgot to tell ya I have a new "baby sister" she is an 8 week old Shih Tzu puppy named Daisy. I took some pictures but they are on my memory card that is at home, so I'll have to post some cute pictures of her later, but I will, because she is sooooooo ccccccuuuuuuuuuttttee and seems to have a very sweet disposition. I'm certain she is going to be a very spoiled addition to our family.
That's all for now folks......

For my birthday in 2006 Rocky set up a scavenger hunt in his restaurant. The clues are the actual clues that he had hidden all over the store.
He started the hunt by handing me this: You are now on a quest. All clues are in customer accessible areas of the restaurant. Please note clues may, or may not be people, places or things. YOu may receive help only from people in your party. Good Luck.
Clue #1: Since you are now on a quest you are in need of knowledge. Where would you get that?
Clue #2: You have found knowledge and this is a good thing. Your next lies with my collection.
Clue #3: You are now well on your way to your goal. Your next step is the real thing.
Clue #4: You are very close, but this may be the toughest clue yet. Her name in Arabic means, "to repent".
Clue #5: I knew you would figure it out. Now, return all five clues and the key to the quest master to claim your treasure. Happy Birthday and I love you very much.
The tag has the answer to each clue written on it.
#1 - Back of Mclaurin School Banner
#2 - Back of bouncy ball machine
#3 - Side of Coke machine
#4 - Taba (an employee) had the key to the paper towel holder in the women's restroom, the clue was inside.
#5 Return key and all the clues to Rocky and he gave me my "RING"!
- stuffed Mickeys & Minnies
- a telephone
- alarm clock
- wall clock (looked like a watch)
- watch & misc jewelry
- T-shirts for almost every day of the month
Over they years they all went to other other places, but I didn't part with the stuffed ones until May of 2008. There were sold at a garage sale to one family who seemed to love them as much as I did.

He did a great job, he really seemed to get the knack of it after the first little while. I was concerned that he might walk away with a few less appendages but he managed to cook the whole meal without even a nick in his finger. The menu was awesome and he cooked everything perfectly, nothing was burned and the Sour Cream Pound Cake that he made from scratch was AMAZING!! Just thought I'd take a moment to brag on him since he did such a good job.
Oh yeah, the meal started with a fruit salad, main course was a Paula Deen recipe called "Backbones and Rice", sides were squash/onions and brocoli and cheese, with garlic cheese biscuits and sweet tea. Then the pound cake for dessert, it was so FINE!
Congratulations Justin on a job well done and a meal well worth eating.

My bitter sweet moment was a very difficult one, all of my Mickey's were bought, but they all went to the same home, so there was sweet mixed in with the sadness. They were bought by an elderly couple who have 2 great granddaughters and one was a preemie that was only 2.5 pounds when she was born and she loves Mickey. They were so pleased to find them and it made it a little easier to let them go. I did shed a few tears and God bless Dawn N. for seeing it was difficult and bagging them up and helping them load them because I was not handling it well. It was time for them to go and I knew it was time for them to go, but the actually act of letting them go was hard. But, I do have my pictures and had decided I was not going to go to Sam's and get them but I am thinking that right this minute I may just go ahead and drive up there and pick them up...so maybe I will get a layout done this weekend after all...we shall see, but maybe not, I have some things I need to do around here so I really need to focus on that, but I'm tired....we shall see.
I guess I should go ahead and run my errands.
