Life Happens and BYOC

Well, our lake plans have changed. I wasn't able to cash my paycheck - the bank was closed by the time I got there and Wal-Mart {HATE that place} wouldn't cash it. So we decided not to go. So now I am dealing with a 31 year old pouting husband. L-O-V-E-L-Y.

So here is my very first BYOC!!! I am totally addicted to blogging now. =)

1. What’s your favorite room in your house?

I love my cozy living room!! Especially when it's clean!! And now that I am out of school for the summer I take time every day to sweep and dust and mop. It's decorated in John Deere. I kinda hate my living room furniture (microfiber, non pup friendly) but it's still my favorite room in the house!!!

2. Picture question (or describe if you don't have a camera). Show us a pic of your current favorite earrings!

Can you believe that I have 7 holes in my ears and DON'T wear earrings??? LOL However, I did inherit my Grandmother's pearl earrings (that my paw paw bought her when they were married) and her diamond studs. They are currently locked up in my mom's safe!!!

3. What’s your dress code at work? If you stay at home and went back to work outside the home, what dress code would you prefer?

Ugh. I'm a business casual. At my first school we could wear capris and jeans/spirit shirts on Fridays. capris, no t-shirts, no jeans on Friday (not even jean skirts!!), shoes can't go between our toes...(Disgruntled, much??) I'm waiting patiently to see what new rules we have this year!!

4. Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

I dove back into the world of blogging this week!!! After a very long hiatus I am so glad I picked it back up!! You ladies are an inspiration to me and help me keep on track. My lowest weight was 220...but I slipped back into some bad habits...gained (238) and now since summer started and I started blogging I'm down to 228...and I'm not gonna stop....losing or blogging!!!!


  1. Try $180 for my trash can. I hate even admitting it. But I swear I love the thing. I don't over spend on things like that most of the time. I just feel like I needed the quality.

  2. Walmart IS hell!!

    Not sure why you weren't able to follow me, I checked the setting...blogger is buggy sometimes me thinks. At any rate I am stalking you ;)

  3. Question for you. Do you think the blogging helps in your weight loss? Just wondering. If the accountability of just putting it on paper helps.

  4. Oh no! I hate when that happens. Maybe you all can get out to the lake next weekend?
    And as for my major... kinda undecided, maybe journalism. I really wanted to go for geology, BUT being a single mom kinda inhibits my ability to travel for months at a time. LOL

  5. @Miss Mary: Blogging TOTALLY helps my weight loss. Not only do I feel that "getting it out there" helps keep me accountable, but I also see other people's successes and it kickstarts me!!!

    @Ronnie...I told two semesters of geology and I HATED it. BUT it was better than gross guts and whatnot!! Of course, I am pretty sure my prof was actually around when dinosaurs roamed the earth!!!

  6. Woo! If I had grandmas pearl or diamond stud earrings, you betcha I'd be wearing them!! Great BYOC!
