A Bunch of Randoms

It’s been a rough past few weeks, diet-wise. Between Food Blog Forum, an anniversary mini-vacation to Houston and well, just not working out at all….I’ve gained some weight. I’m back on track, though. After a lot of thinking, I decided to get back into the DietBet swing of things.

Would any of you like to join me? It ends just before the 4th of July festivities should be happening!

This made me laugh today.


On another weight loss note, I have to thank Sara, of Fit for a Bride blog, for interviewing me on her blog last week. Beyond flattered!

When given the choice between a Le Creuset braiser and a Kate Spade purse, I’m pretty sure I’m one of the few gals who would go for the braiser. The cool thing is it was almost 50% off, and the only reason for that is that the color (midnight blue) was a limited edition. I really don’t care what color my cookware is, but it kind of worked out in my favor, because this piece is very cool since it has a sparkly finish. I’m in love with it!

As I mentioned, my husband and I took a mini-vacation to Houston this past weekend. We aren’t picky when it comes to hotels, so we usually use hotel points for trips like this and we don’t really expect much out of it. However, this time, we stayed at Hotel Indigo near the Galleria. We were blown away. The rooms were gorgeous (seriously want to steal that duvet cover), and the staff there were super friendly. You may notice the cookie bouquet in the picture, which I bought to surprise my husband. They made sure it was delivered to our hotel room before check-in, which was a sweet touch. I thought they’d just hand it to us at check-in or something. It was the first time (EVER) that I surprised my husband. SUCCESS!

I can’t believe that it’s been 4 years since my husband and I got married. A lot has happened since then, but I think the biggest accomplishment has been our weight loss journey. Between the both of us, we’ve lost 185 lbs., and our journeys aren’t even over yet. I know I have at least 50-60 lbs. left to go. 185 lbs. is a person…18.5 sacks of potatoes…37 bags of flour…3 Millies…I could go on and on. I’m pretty proud of us, darnit!

I love this article so much….while my siblings can get on my nerves from time to time (What? Don’t act like it’s just me!), they truly are great. I’m a pretty lucky gal.

Back in the college days, I majored in Geography. As a geography geek, this game is perfection. Even if you aren’t a geography geek, I have a feeling you’ll get hooked on this game, too!

Hope y’all have a great weekend!
