I'm down 5 pounds. I'm in a better place now than I was last week, and this loss, even if it is water, will only help me :) Yay!
Today Blayne came over to drop off her little pups for a little sleep over tonight. She brought me two super fun things that I just have to share with you! You see, Blayne is a longtime good friend with one of the bloggers that I follow, Goal of Losing, and she has an Etsy Store, Anything Rustic, that I have been wanting to buy from for a while. Anyway, long story short, she bought me two things from the store!!
First is this cute county banner :)
This is how it looks in my room!!
Next is this awesome slate chalk board.......
This is how it looks in my kitchen!!
Thank you Blayney!! I am so lucky to have such a sweet thoughtful daughter! I'm also lucky that she has such a wonderful talented friend :)
As I told you, I have been redoing my rooms a little at a time. Dominic came home for a nice visit. Aka..... to eat food, get some money, and to drop off laundry :) He was shocked at the changes. First he said, wow, it looks different in here. Then later, he's was like, "I don't get it.....when did you buy all of this stuff, I didn't know that you even bought this stuff". I kinda giggled to myself, because the first thing I thought of was, hmmm.....I have a life he doesn't know about too :)
Just a few more walls that I finished.
I think I am feeling the need to redo some areas in my house, because I am trying to make changes in other areas of my life, so I am just going all out everywhere!! I am really making honest attempts to make changes my life, my habits, my whole well being. One change I'm making, is that beginning tomorrow, I am going to start getting up earlier than normal. This will allow me more time in the morning to read my blogs, post a little more, do my daily readings, and just have a nice start to the day. Sometimes I get up right before I have to be at work and am scrambling around trying to get things together. This way, I can also plan my meals for the day and maybe eat a good breakfast, which is really hard for me. Usually I eat breakfast at around 11:00, and I know that reeks havoc on my metabolism. Anyway, I feel that if you make just one small change, it can snow ball into prompting other things in your life to fall into place. That's my thought anyway :)
