Happy Friday!

Are you dancing around cause it's Friday? I know I am!!

This has been THE. LONGEST. WEEK. EVER. Ugh! I woke up thinking every day was Thursday. So not only was it a long and exasperating work week, but Eric is on night shift rotation and I do not like it. I don't sleep well at all. I really must have been naive in thinking that it would be a minor thing to get used to...boy was I wrong! I wake up and get ready for work, as I'm preparing to leave the house, he gets home from work. He sleeps all day = no texting. I get home from work and he's just waking up/getting ready for work, we have anywhere from 30-60 minutes together before he leaves for work. Then he spends the evening at work = no texting. So we are getting up to an hour of talking, hugs and kisses in before one of us leaves. Not fun.

So as I've mentioned...I lost 7 pounds in 4 days on the detox diet. I immediately gained back 4 pounds (which is funny because mom gained that back the first few days after her detox period was over as well). This week I started counting calories again using MyFitnessPal and managed to shake 2 of those pounds back off. So, I am still down 5 pounds from the initial "jump back on the wellness bandwagon" and would have liked to have knocked all 4 pounds back off, but I am going to be happy with it!

In the past week, I have walked 14.1 miles. Pretty exciting stuff. :) I am hoping to get ahead this weekend on my miles for the #30daysin30miles challenge, but so far so good. Jordan wondered why I didn't like walking on the treadmill and I told her it's because all I have to look at is the same surroundings (door, lamp, dresser) whereas when I'm outside - there's cows, birds, cats, dogs, cars, etc. So she drew me a picture to put on the treadmill that had a cow, a dog, a cat and sunshine. haha Love her! It was too cute.

Also, if you haven't heard...Google Reader is going away, which means your GFC blog follower button is going away too. I made the leap this morning to Bloglovin' thanks to the recommendation of some of my favorite bloggers and so far, I really like it. If you want to check it out, scroll down the left hand side of my blog and find the Bloglovin' button and follow it to sign up for your own account. It's easy peasy!

And one last thing - I haven't shared anything about my Scentsy Family businesses lately, but don't want you to miss out on some of the awesome deals and products!!

Scentsy - Forget-me-not is this catalog's Charitable cause warmer. Scentsy donates $8 from every one of these warmers sold to the Fisher Center (which does Alzheimer's research). I'm not sure about you, but most people have been affected by Alzheimer's in some way. My paternal grandfather graduated top of his class in college and in the end, he didn't know his children's names or what Christmas presents were. That was a hard thing to watch as a little kid who loved her grandpa fiercely. I'm placing a Scentsy order today if you want to get in on the action - you can order under the party called "Bobbie Davis" if you want to help one of my good friends out on her party today. There are lots of beautiful new warmers and lovely scents if you're wanting something spring-like for your home!

Velata - This month Velata is on sale! Woohoo! 10% off nearly the entire catalog. It's a great time to order your warmer (on sale) in preparation for the CHEESE DIPS coming out next month!! My family loves the chocolate and begs for it all the time. We even took it to our family reunion last fall and everyone stood around it and chowed down!

Grace Adele - And last, but certainly not least...spring is nearly here which for most of us ladies means a new purse! Time to put the winter blahs at bay and update our accessories! :) GA brought out new colors (pink & orange), plus a few new styles, including a tablet tote! I have the new Shelby bag in it! Easter's coming...wouldn't you love to have this instead of an Easter basket?!


  1. Weightless is not easy. Keep up the good work!

  2. Great job on the milage! I am doing the 30/30 too and I am at 12 miles. I have got to make them up quick (thanks to a vacay). Glad to know I am not the only one! You've helped me get back into motivation mode.
