Yep, that's my DSIL's fav one. He likes anything choc/p.butter though. I decided to make pineapple upside down cakes instead. Easier. And they're pretty.

I got the Thera Shoe from K-Mart. So far so good. I'm glad you had a good day with Mom and Carolyn is right, your crown is really sparkling.

We watched Food, Inc. tonight. It really makes you think about what you put into your body. I'm really going to start making healthier choices at the grocery. Not so much for weight loss as just overall health.

Drive by before bed.

Carolyn, do you have Vitamin Shoppes there? If so, that is where I got my first bottle of biotin, it was their brand and 5000 mcg.

Cute story on DGS 22 months. DGS 10 decided to call me Mema instead of Grandma so I have been Mema since. Well, we realized that DGS 22months is calling me just Ma, which isn't all that cute, LOL. When I try to tell him that I am Mema, he looks at me funny, pats himself and says Me, then points at me and says Ma. He has a point!!!!

Morning!

Buffy - Hmmmmmm how are you going to get DGS 22 mo to change? He's got a point!

Sandy - I'd probably not want to eat anything after watching Food, Inc. Yikes!
Keep walking in them - I need a report!

Carolyn - thanks. I think you have to do it a bit more willingly to get too many stars in your crown!

Today is Spin class, grocery store, library, pet store and Kohl's for a new vacuum.

Hi ladies and Gord,

I loved that little dgs story.. Ma isn't that cute, but he probably knew that Mema didn't make sense..I think this child is pretty bright, isn't he???

I'm askeered to watch that Food movie. Do you see animals getting killed??

I will go to Walgreens..no Vitamin Shoppe unfortunately.

Off to exercise, then reading with my little wayward boy and very focussed girl...
Then D and I will try to find some WW peeps..

Morning!
Our flight got cancelled due to bad weather in Denver, so, instead of flying out today, we leave earlier tomorrow and will stay until Mon instead of coming home on Sun., if, the hotel can accomodate us. Poor DD, she has been on the phone forever trying to make all the changes. Great thing is that we are confirmed on first class going, they fly so much that they can always ask for upgrades and often get them.

Carolyn, remember, it takes 3 months to grow a new nail, so you won't notice the biotin doing anything for awhile, commit to taking it for 3-4 months to give it a fair trial, but truly, I started noticing after about 9 weeks, the nail bed was looking very healthy and then the ends were strong and now are growing longer without breaking, peeling, etc.

MK, you still get stars, even though it isn't your favorite thing to do.

Need to do a return day today, am I the only one who buys without trying on, etc. so always has a pile of things to return? I hate to try things on in the stores, it is always too warm in the dressing rooms.

Have a great day everyone.

That's right. The stars still go in our crown. They might be bigger stars some days than others but they still go in. Hang in there MK. I'm working on my stars with my dad too. I really have to watch my attitude about it and I'm always asking for help from above, which does help.

Carolyn, we have Vit. Shoppes up here now. Are you coming anytime soon? I think I need to get some too. I had 2 nails break off at the quick this week so I chopped them all off.

They don't show a lot of the killing of the animals but enough that if might bother you. What bothered me even more was the type of control that our govt. has over all of our food and how lax the regulations are to make sure our food is healthy. It's a very good movie to watch. I picked up several organic things at Walmart today. They did cost more but I think in the end it's worth it.

Buffy, sorry about your canceled plans. I hate when things don't go according to plan. Your little DGS does sound very smart but I bet you'll be able to convert him to your way of thinking before he's much older, lol.

Oh, first class, Buffy..How fun for you..I didn't realize the weather was bad in CO..Safe travels..I just took my first Biotin (Walgreens), so I will wait for the results..3 months is okay when I've had bad nails forever..

Sandy: Our next big trip is to Manhattan on Easter Saturday..But I already went to WGreens..I think working in a slaughterhouse would be the last thing on my work list.
I'm sure there is alot going on that we don't know.

Did 3 WW calls today..had lunch (LC) and exercised for 90 minutes..Whew..

I always try on clothes cuz we live 45 miles away from the closest mall..

Morning!

Raining here today - and not as warm - maybe 48.
DH has to go back to St Louis - he was there yesterday, but didn't think about staying!
Spin class at 7:00am and then house cleaning!

Busy day here. Bible study earlier than normal for coffee/donuts, of which I will not be partaking, but I volunteered to help. Then a massage and hopefully a walk sometime in between. And I need to clean house too. I feel a big spring cleaning coming on here.

Morning.
Flight cancelled again! I guess American only has 2 flights a day from DFW to Denver, so now they are trying to accomodate all the people who got messed up the first day. Geez! Now, we are scheduled to go out tomorrow morning and come back Tues. eve. If this doesn't work, the trip will have to be cancelled for now.
Cindy, glad to hear that about the eyebrows, mine have gotten sparse as I have gotten older and have the thyroid issues and I keep thinking that I am seeing a little extra growth but not sure yet. I could use thicker hair as well and know biotin can also help that, so hoping it continues to help me.
Have office work today, if I work really hard, I won't have to take it with me on the trip as I had planned.
Hi Gord, glad it is getting so toasty up there, LOL.
Got my returns done yesterday, but then bought more "stuff". Why do I like "stuff" so much?
Anyone else into Yellow Box sandals? I probably mentioned them last summer, they are so cute and so comfy, I wear them all the time and have them in about every color. And, they are cheap!!! And, lo carb, they have no fat in them and no sugar although some colors look pretty sweeeettt! Just kidding, have to make this a low carb subject!!!

Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone..

Oh, Gord..goodness sakes..Glad you are having a heat wave soon..When is your doctor going to contact you?????

Exercised, shopped and did dishes..

Okay..tonight is the big night for the Kansas State Wildcats.. They beat Xavier by almost 20 points in December, but you never know, do you???

MK: It's rainy and damp here, too. Still wearing my winter coat.



I'll have to look at the other benies of biotin. I think the bottle said it was supposed to increase your metabolism..??

Buffy; Holy smokes on the flight cancellations. I hope you get out safe and sound.

Those are some cute sandals..I think the ones on the right.

Mexican food is the root of all evil for sure. If you can avoid the chips, and don't order anything with a shell, etc..it's easy.

But, but, they are so inexpensive Sandy, LOL. I don't have any of those but yes, that is the brand. I have black ones, polka dot ones, red ones, pink ones, yellow ones, brown, green, zebra striped, they are FUN!

And vacuumed the living room and the stairs and landing.
I think I like it!

I have spent the whole afternoon and evening getting my new computer loaded with all my "old stand-by" programs. And transferring my iPod to my new laptop. That was a giant mess!! I finally found some halfway intelligible instructions online from another iPod user and it worked!! I think. At least I don't have to load all those CDs again. And it copied my podcasts too so I'm happy so far.

I have to bake in the a.m. for the shrimp dinner tomorrow night. I'm going to make pineapple upside down cakes with my special pretty pans. I dread smelling them hot when they come out of the oven.

The K-State game is exciting so far. I hope they win. They've really done so well this year.

Morning.
Well, so far, they haven't cancelled our flight today so guess we are off.
Around here I get the sandals at Belk dept store, small chain and at a store called Charming Charlies, they don't have many. The best bet is to google them, there are several sites online that carry them and run some good sales, I just got a couple of pairs at 20% off, free shipping. Our Belk store is close by and carry a large selection so I got most of mine there, not sure what other dept. stores carry them. They are kind of the rage around here.
Well, better get ready to head to the airport, meeting the kids are checkin and with 2 babies in tow, I am sure they wiill be running late. I will be there early waiting, LOL.

Morning!
I got stuck on FB this morning!

Spin at 8:30 then 1 more bathroom to clean and sheets to wash.
DD26 is coming over to spend the night. DH and I are taking DS17 on another college visit trip. This time to Quincy University.
It starts at 8:00am and it seemed easier to spend the night there rather than get up so early.

Meeting with the stockbroker this afternoon . . . I'm sure there's other stuff, right?


Buffy - have a great trip!

Sandy - but you can't cut the cakes!!! Hopefully you'll be safe!

Carolyn - yep - it's pretty light! Even has a self-propel button!
