This is not of of furniture but I thought I would share. I was wearing my glasses

The shoes are great; except for the rhinestones on the T-strap. I could live without them. Wonder how hard they would be to remove?
Wouldn't the shoes above look great with this very casual skirt? So cute together for a Casual Friday.
I love the color of this shirt. And the ruffles.
I am so ready for warm weather!

Although I am not quite sure why. I can't sing, am a horrible dancer, and can't draw. I can twist my arms inside out, cross my eyes, and touch my nose with my tongue. See, tons of talent. AndI am sad to say that I have worn a girdle.

So this week my goal is to drink lots of water (even more than I usually do) and try to eat different foods. I think that my body may be getting used to eating the same foods all the time. I want to make sure that I have a good loss next Monday morning. So instead of my normal oatmeal and toasted english muffin with honey I had 2 egg whites scrambled with an english muffin and slice of WW cheese. I put a little mustard on it and it was delicious! It tasted just like a Egg McMuffin.
As you can see from above , our weekend was taken up by the softball tournament. After that we were so tired and ended up in bed by 10 each night. Yesterday we went to church and then grocery shopping. We spent the afternoon watching Madagascar 2 and catching up on The Office.

1- a new season... softball that is. Yesterday was our first day of practice and we have a lot of work ahead of us this season. I am excited about it though. I love coaching and softball is my favorite sport.
2- A new gym. Beginning in March I will be switching from the YMCA to a small 24 hour gym in the town I teach in. My best friend and future sister-in-law have also joined and I really enjoy spending the time with them. I am going to miss working out with Hubs but it didn't make sense to pay 3 times the price when this other gym is actually more convenient.
3- Being able to fit into 3 pairs of pants that I haven't been able to wear since last winter. I am hoping that even they will be to big before long.
Bachelor Re-cap: I cannot believe that Jillian was sent home. I really though that she would be the final one. I do not like Molly at all. Melissa has been my favorite the entire time and I definitely think that he likes her better than Molly.

This is the man that I love more than anything in this world.
I'm so thankful that you are my partner in this life.
I love you with all my heart!
Don't forget to get entered in the drawing for the set of Karen Kingsbury books that I am giving away. The winner will be drawn tomorrow morning.

I LOVE to read. There is nothing I like better than a good book. Two years ago I was introduced to a wonderful author; Karen Kingsbury. I'm sure that some of you have read her books and love her as much as I do. Her books will make you laugh, cry, and most importantly bring you closer to God. For my 1st giveaway I have decided to offer ya'll a chance to win her Forever Faithful Series. *These picutres were taken from Amazon.com. You can't click on them to see inside*
* I am loving this dress for a wedding rehearsal in June. It is in Charleston on a boat. Wouldn't this be perfect?

1 box of whole wheat rotini noodles
fat free Italian dressing
directions: mix all together, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and let chill in fridge
This pasta salad is so simple and I haven't met anyone that didn't love it. Plus it is very WW friendly and a great way to get your vegetables in.
Only 2 more posts until my 100th! I am very excited about it and that is why I have decided that this is the perfect time to host my first blog giveaway.
I plan on doing my 100th post on Friday morning and will reveal the giveaway then.
Make sure you check back and tell all your friends.

I saw this today and have been repeating it since then. Is this not the most beautiful and amazing thing you have heard?
Hubs and I have decided that we are going to stop taking the Femara and I am not going to the dr. at all for the next 2 months. The end of March will be 1 year of TTC for us and we are so ready for a break. At the end of the 2 months we will reconsider what we want to do. I am truly happy about taking some time off. We are trusting in the Lord and know that He will bless us with the perfect child for us when it is in His plan. It won't matter if we are taking fertility meds or not. Please keep us in your prayers. I pray for so many of you each day and I know that you are praying for us.
I weighed in this morning and had lost 2.2 lbs. I would love to see 4 or 5 lbs in a week but I am super happy with losing anything. I think that losing it slow is better for me. I have learned so much in just 5 short weeks about portion control and calorie content. This puts my total weight loss at 11.2 lbs. I hope to lose another 2 lbs this week. It has been beautiful here (high 60's to the mid 70's) so I have spent a lot of time outdoors and I plan on doing my daily walking outside as much as I can.
This weekend was busy for us... like all weekends. Friday night I had a Girls Night Out and we had a lot of fun. Sat. Hubs and I went out to dinner and shopping with my parents and brother and future sister-in-law. Sunday we had a birthday party for my Grandma's husband (who is not my "real" grandfather. She remarried years after my grandfather passed away. We love him like he was our own though).

After a few more weeks (okay months) of WW I plan on looking just like this in the dress.
This is a church dress that I got for $7.00. It's also going to be really cute for a spring daytime wedding that we have coming up.
I also got a black formal dress that I couldn't find a picture of online. It was only $20.00
Hubs got a dress coat for $24.00 that had orginally been $140.00. He also got a dress shirt for $12. Which is a great deal since he has to wear Big & Tall clothing.
Here is Hub's new truck. This is not a picture of ours (we haven't taken any yet) but this is one I grabbed of google and it looks exactly the same.

1- I am addicted to Chap stick. Seriously, I have 1 in my purse, 1 in my nightstand, 1 in my bathroom, and one in my living room. I go no where without it.
2- I love sports. I played softball, volleyball, and basketball during high school. I now coach volleyball and softball. I love to watch any sport and attend any sporting event.
3- I change my hair color with the seasons. In the fall and winter I like it darker and in the spring and summer I break out the highlights.
4- My family means more to me than anything. Do not mess with them. Especially my little brother.
5- I teach high school and love it! I could not imagine doing anything else with my life.
6- I have always been a book worm. I love to read and always carry a book with me.
7- My toenails are always painted. Even in the winter.
8- I am a huge fan of anything Disney. I love Disney World and all the movies.
9- If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be chips with salsa and sour cream.
10- I have had the same best friend for as long as I can remember.
11- My greatest fear is my house catching on fire. I used to be so scared that for my 12th birthday my parents bought me my very own fire extinguisher.
12- The Office is my favorite TV show.
13- I take my lunch to work everyday. I refuse to eat cafeteria food.
14- I consume an obscene amount of water.
15- I get extremely tanned in the summer. Its a combination of working for my dad's lawn care service and laying out by the pool during my summer vacation.
16- Speaking of #15: I love to cut grass. I could do it all day.
17- I love animals of all kinds. Expect for fish and hamsters. For some reason hamsters make me queasy.
18- Wrapping Christmas presents is my all-time favorite thing to do. I love to buy for other people just so I can wrap it.
19- I have naturally curly hair and wouldn't change it for anything.
20- Hubs says that my eyes are the color of "baby poop" because they are so light with a lot of yellow in them. Romantic, I know.
21- My first car was a brand new green Mustang. I had always wanted a yellow Mustang but for some reason when they took me to pick it out I chose green.
22- I hate the city. I am a country girl at heart. And will always live in the middle of no where.
23- I teach at the high school that I graduated from. My dad also teaches here. My best friend teaches at the elementary school beside us. My future sister-in-law is doing her student teaching there also.
24- I love to shop in clearance racks. It makes me feel like I have accomplished something when I can get a great deal.
25- Unfortunately I am addicted to reality television.
If you haven't done this yet, you should. You can really learn a lot about yourself.

Bachelor Recap: I was so sad to see Stephanie leave. She is such a great woman. Just not for Jason though. I am still going with Melessa and Jillian as the final 2. Just not sure which one he chooses. I think that Naomi (who desperately needs a new hairstyle) will go home next week. Although Molly is my least favorite now and I really hope that she goes home soon.
I have to watch The Biggest Loser from last week before I can watch tonight's episode.

The weather is so beautiful here today. High of 61. I plan to do my daily walking outside instead of on the treadmill.
