Almost Friday!!

Which means almost weigh in. Oh and I can NOT express how excited I am for weigh in. Oh how I've missed the "game" of weight watchers!!! I truly had forgotten how much weight watchers really does make me happy! I love not feeling like crap! Wahoo! Geez I sound like a walking advertisement! Not that I need to really tell ya'll, most of ya'll are my WW buddies that I can count on for support!! Oh yeah thanks for that by the way!!

Now for what's gone on in this hot as HELL week!! Well let's first take a peak into the greatest aspect of a fat kid.....

Truly I thought my life was complete having Smallcakes, (which I wore my smallcakes shirt today and did them lots of FREE advertising... Damnit they owe me cupcakes for that!) FROYO, and Noodles Co. All with in walking distance of my house!! *Cue in angels singing*
(I guess I should also add that I also have McDonalds, Wendy's, and Taco Bell..... True fat kids dream ya know!)

Well that was until last week....

JIMMY JOHNS OPENED! Not joking you, I saw the sign 3 weeks ago, that they were coming. Ummm a week and a half later they are open... Not only are they freaky fast at delivery.... They are freaky fast at opening! Also I have NO shame in the fact Monday will mark their 2 weeks of being open, and I'm the "mayor" on foursquare!

Being the wonderful fat kid I've always been... I had never adventured to try their lettuce wraps. Well that is until I'm a WWer again. I ventured to try the Vito (#5) with hot peppers on a lettuce wrap! Holy bejesus, why had no one told me how amazing this was!!! So now that I've released the secret, sent out the memos......

Also please notice Fiesta's newest color Marigold!!

Go try this bad boy!! Amazingly filling Vito Lettuce wrap and pickle with a diet coke... Only 9pt+!! 
*cue the angels again*

Okay okay. So I haven't just ate all week! I evidently found my "crafty" underpants!

I have been working on my newest blanket! Crocheting my life away.... I would be farther if my work didn't think a crochet needle was a weapon and let me crochet on my breaks in the break room. Can we say LAME-O!

Go figure I fall in love with this yarn, buy 2 balls to get started. Go back to buy more and only to find out they don't carry it anymore. Hello Plan B, let's put our thinking caps on!

For all those who were friends on Facebook with me. I expressed my love to want to have a Big Ass Flowered Broach collection. Well folks, I decided to take a more adventurous route. . . {drum roll please} . . .

Heck Yes! I managed to make me a Big Ass Flowered Broach ID badge holder! Now to begin to make them in every color for Every outfit!!

Crafty weekend project.... My work friend wants a dinosaur badge holder! Hopefully what I have in mind works! I will share next week!

Till tomorrow kiddies! I will make a short post after weigh in! I promised Walgreens I would go slave and count some pills tomorrow before work!

On the more cuddly aspect of my life!

Yeah I kinda love them too!!

Happy Day off!

Oh they joys of working 4 10's is I get the pleasure to have Tuesdays all to myself.

First off, the last 4 days back on the WW wagon have been awesome! Believe it or not... This girl is tracking. Well 70% of the time! Ha. I am still that glorious scale whore I've always been. Slowly but sure ounce by ounce the scale is getting lower! I might be going into work at the pharmacy before work on Friday.... So weigh in results might be Friday. So I shall all spill my guts either Thursday or Friday!

As some of you might know, since the horrible tornados decided to do some major damage to MO. I felt horrible how little I could do to help. I then decided that I was going to start couponing so that I too could have a stockpile so I would have to donate. I have done a couple of trips to the ole CVS and Walgreens and the stockpile has begun! My husband does laugh at the amount of razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste we have! Needless to say our teeth are set to be clean for Months and clean shavin in our house hold!

On Sundays after I get off at Walgreens, I head home to start making my lists and planning out where to go and what coupons! So that on Tuesdays I head out and do my damage! Yesterday I called Mom asking if she wanted to join for today's adventures!

Today we headed out to Walgreens and CVS. First stop Walgreens so that we could return Moms stuff that didn't ring up correctly from the distaster of our systems completely crashing company wide Sunday. After all our planning and scouting out. I come home with all these goodies!!

Spending a grand total of $30..... And still having $16.79 in store buck for next weekends Trip! So technically I spent a whopping $13.21! Hooray! Oh heck yes there's more toothpaste haha! Also how could I forget even in the crazy madness of couponing of course we had to stop to fill our tummy's! I introduced Mom to the lettuce wrap at Jimmy Johns!! Nom nom!

After coming home, finding my husband at the house and informed me we are off to date night!! Off to Spin Pizza we went! We had never been, I was slightly scared. Pizza is a trigger food for me! I was damn proud of myself! I split a pizza with Kyle. Got Chicken and Pesto on whole wheat crust! I haven't calculated points yet.... But my stomach did approve!!


He then told me we were heading to the movies! But our movie wasnt to start for an hour and fifteen minutes. So I wanted to make a pit stop at Macy's because Fiestaware's limited edition color made it to shelves this week! So I stopped picked up 2 placesetting of dishes! Marigold and Paprika! (I'm a year behind on picking up paprika!)

((major fail... I didn't take a picture, and since I'm blogging from my seat at the movies. Sorry Folks!!))

As I type to you all we wait for Bridesmaids to begin!! Yay I'm stoked!!

Now off to laugh my butt off!!

Now that I discovered fancy BlogPress.... I can update you all the amazing randomness I love in life!!

Photo to make ya'll smile!

I was laying on the kitchen floor playing with Mr. Barnaby and Emma! Barney thought he needed to lay on top of me for a nap!

Five for Friday

Weekly as I read Meagan's Five for Friday blogs, I have decided I will follow her foot steps too!

1. You accept me being a crazy dog lady. . . And secretly love all three of the crumb crunchers just as much as I do.

2. You have taken over handling the cable company about trying to get the cable fixed so I can watch my DVRs. . . One day soon hopefully.

3. Your  morning text messages I wake up to saying you love me!

4. Every time you go to the gas station, you buy me 10 CHERRY airheads! You know they are my favorite!

5. You told me you'd handle the dishes after lunch yesterday! 

When it Rains. . . It down right pours!

This week has been one HELL of a week to say the least. Waking up to my alarm, to remind me to get my ass out of bed to go to weight watchers I wake up to more bad news. A possible financial brick wall. I bitched, moaned, whined, and cried. Talked myself out of going to weight watchers. I called Mom told her, and she said we would go when it was a better time for me.

After more scuffing my feet around the house, crying, pissed off, and talking to myself. Weight Watchers is the one thing I need when my life comes crashing down. I mean when I was laid off and that put a financial hurt on us, I didn't quit. So if I needed to have more credit card debt for me to be able to be healthier, so be it. I've already realized by not having someone else weigh me in doesn't work for me.... Major FAIL. I always reason with my scale.... (Oh I'll only eat that cupcake this time, well until the next day comes and I eat another damn cupcake)

I called Mom back, told her that I've decided that I'm not going to allow my life crashing down stop me from weight watchers. This is what I need to help build me up.  My Mom told me she had been thinking and she feels I need happiness in my life and she wants to pay for my monthly pass. I truly do have the worlds greatest mom. I throw clothes on and head up to weight watchers seeing my old leader Casey. Who said she was happy to see me back.

So I'm back in the game, even after what one would call one of my worst weeks of my life.

Weigh in results next week folks!

Hiya! So I really do still exist. I'm still living the crazy life, and make it as awesome as one can. I am proud to announce to all my WW lovers, that after going on a eating rampage and playing the game of "EVERYTHING IS FREE OF POINTS!!" 30 pounds later, I'm completely disappointed with myself. Yeah Yeah, I gained 30 pounds of my 70. But I'm going to be an adult about it, say "hey it was fun" now back to the basics.

Tomorrow I'll be up at 8:30 am (yup even after I get home from work at 1:30 am) and meet that wonderful ole Weight Watcher scale again... This round with my momma. Since I'm away from my TRUE WW weigh in lover.... Julia, I must fill her void with someone! So momma it is!

As much as I beat myself over these 30 pounds. I remember to myself that while working my ass off to lose that 70 pounds, I remind myself that I was unemployed for 6 months of that year. I actually would get bored and just go to work out classes. I was pretty much a 24 hour fitness work out class junkie.... Well until that day after I had already lost 60 pounds and the water aerobics instructor asked when my baby was due and what exercises I shouldn't be doing..... In front of the whole class. Me and 24 hour fitness, ended our relationship. Now with 5 months left on my membership, I'm taking the big step of being a workout whore again. And will be attending my old water aerobics again.

Yup, I'm chunky. I know this. So if someone has baby questions...... I might just get ninja skills out!

I will come crawling back to you when the scale says 2_ _. Again. I will bitch, I will complain and I will move on. It's a number, I'm awesome and I CAN see ONELANDER again. I know I can!

Adios my lovers, and my greatest support system! Till tomorrow the inner fat kid in denial comes out!

I am getting back in the grind

So I will try my hardest to be a better blogger. Life is pretty much a blur, I have officially been at my government job for 3 months!!! Scary, I've been away from you all for 3 months! Of course I've been still working at Walgreens, so my life has been a bit mad house crazy. ( I haven't even seen my best friend Julia, UGH) Although I have officially been working in Pharmacy so I'm thinking about cutting down my hours at the good ole Walgreens!

Ohhh and Monday was my first official stupid holiday working for the government..... It was AMAZING!

We have moved in and loving the house...... I promise I will take pictures of the house and update for you!! Give a women some time!!

Also, since Jess doesn't like posts without pictures. . . .  Here ya'll go!

Momma's Princess!
Lacy Girl 

Momma's Handsome Little man

Our newest addition! 
Emma Girl! 
It's already been 6 months she's been with us, and she's perfect!!

Yes, I'm that crazy "dog" momma. I had the kids get their pictures taken, mostly because Lacy turns 12 this 4h of July and she was my very first dog, and boy does she act like it. She is momma's spoiled princess and has NO shame in admitting it!
