Congrats on fantasy football! LOL my husband has incredible luck with stuff like that, and raffles, and whatever. I never do.

Question for you. If I wanted to learn how to make some jewelry - maybe just bead type stuff - how would you suggest I get started?

Thanks and I hope you have a killer workout this morning!

Daaaaamn. I knew you were probably going to say somewhere that the sizes are too small I could have sworn you said you got one at Dots? It was like a black and white horizontal bandage kind of pattern?

I already have one I can wear, maybe I'll just have it taken in and be a good girl and not spend the money!!!

But I want to be fabulous like you!!! Lol

Sara I did have one I wore to my bachelorette party in Vegas, that was from Dots? That thing is a rag though after laying on the floor of that strip club I dont think I will ever wear it again, LOL!!

Doing my morning thing, getting used to it now, although I am not looking forward to the cold weather!!!! This week is all lifting no cardio so we will see what that does lifting heavier and the new routine the trainer gave me, I am not weighing, might have to peek tomorrow!

Hi Amber,

You crack me up---our office is the same way, a land mine, with tons of candy everywhere too. Great job resisting temptation!! I've had a few pieces, but I've mostly resisted though...good for us!

Have a great night!

Jenna

Jenna I hear ya, man that stuff calls to me and I have to stay away I do love the not eating at your desk though, that is a good thing.

Kitty I had to find my inner honey badger stat!!!!! I am doing so good this week, Tony wanted us to go to the restaurant we had our first date for our anniversary and I said just cant hun, I weigh in on Sunday and all these workouts and careful eating and planning I dont want it ruined! I cant trust myself to not shove in the bread basket or whatever so I said no going out.

This weigh in will be interesting I have done no cardio this week so we will see what the scale says I can feel a big difference with the new workouts and I feel like I am losing so I hope I have a good one!

I am getting back to onderland by Christmas if it kills me! And staying the heck there!

Ugh, I hate this time of year! Candy everywhere! But I committed to eating only high quality chocolate. If I want it, I will eat it, but only if it's worth it!

LOL. My mom's whole house is a landmine! She even has a "candy drawer" in her kitchen. I've learned to bring my own sf stash to keep in the freezer for emergencies

Amber that is so sweet that Tony wanted to go to the restaurant where you had your first date. I understand why you said no though. We are both lucky to have romantic guys! We went out to dinner for my birthday last week so I said no to the anniversary dinner because they are only 6 days apart.

So last night I had to get my nails done, grocery shop etc! So the fridge was full, he went to Wegmans and got raw oysters and ribeyes for tonight!!! Yummy!!!!!! He was so sweet and he made dinner last night! I said this is so much nicer!!!!!! SO I cant wait for dinner tonight!

So this morning bootcamp, then the rock show we are not selling just shopping, then fancy dinner! Tomorrow is weigh in!

Kitty- watcha thinking about the game? Everyone says the Eagles are going to be road kill, but I have faith! What did I hear? The Steelers have only lost 3 games since 2001 to a NFC team at home, doesnt sound good does it?

Yes it has almost been 1 year, 10/9, Tuesday is the day!!1 Today was the bachelorette/bachelor party in Vegas, OMG that was a fun night!! LOL I have been posting pics on Facebook, I cannot believe the year of planning took so long and then this year has flown by! He has a management training class Tues and Wed so he will be gone, so we had no kids this weekend! He got me pretty flowers and made that delicious dinner last night, he is a keeper!!!

SO my trainer cancelled on me, I could have met him at 5 am at his studio he needed to go to Baltimore today I said we will skip it, I get up so early I do enjoy sleeping in and waking up with Tony on the weekends! So I will see him next week, according to my scale i lost 4 pounds, so I will take it!!!

So last night I thought better be all romantic, so last year for our wedding, our one friend got us the kama sutra book and they had $100 in the book, marking funny positions we should try, LOL Well last night we were trying them and now I tore up my knee, LOL I woke up to a big swollen knee, OMG sex injury!!! So I am hoping that feels better today! Only me, I would hate to have to explain that one to the doc!

Big game today vs the PA teams Eagles and Steelers, I am expecting Kitty to be here talking smack!

We went to a rock show yesterday got a few things, honey loves cutting opals so he got a jar, I tell him they are bad luck if not your birthstone but he loves chasing the fire in them. So when we left he didnt pull the door the whole way we got home the back door was wide open and both cats were sitting there, we were gone 5 hours, I said if my babies would have gotten away or if one of the strays around here got in, Oh my!

I think I forgot to tell you guys the one girl at work got fired on Friday! She was with my boss for almost 6 years, and she had a terrible attitude, my boss was going to have a talking with her, but she came in my office and said I had enough of her attitude I am letting her go, so they sat down and she said are we done? My boss said yes we are, pack your things and give me the key, she said I packed my things months ago, and she stormed out. My boss is soooo nice, I felt so bad for her but she is like, I am so pleased with you we are going to be fine, I said but OMG there is so much I need to learn, she said she will get me up to speed and she feels better with the negativity gone, so Monday should be crazy!

I am at your injury!! But I do hope you feel better! As for the back door: OMG! I left the back door unlocked one day (the outside door), and one of my cats is strong enough to push it open. I came back downstairs after and hour and noticed it was unlocked, and she was just sitting there looking out. I couldn't believe she didn't make a move on it! So glad yours didn't either! Enjoy the game today!

Happy Anniversary!!! I am so PML about your sex injury! (I hope it's not serious though, of course! I'm not sure kama sutra stuff is safe once the wedding is past...... ) Congrats too on 4 lbs down! Awesome weigh in! You seem to ultra positive that I can't imagine what it must have been like for your boss continuing to put up with a negative nelly after you came on the scene! You boss must be so relieved.

Never heard of AC Moore but there is definitely Michaels and some other craft type place I can't think of right now. I will see if they can help! thanks!
