This & That


I lost 2lbs! I lost 2lbs! Not bad for the first week. I've been following the Weight Watchers plan and exercised twice. I even managed to survive a holiday party on Saturday amidst trays of cookies and dips without blowing my diet out of the water. Yay for me. I do have 2 holiday parties this weekend though, so hopefully I can do as well then too.

In other news, I finally dragged the Christmas decorations up from the basement last night and we started putting things up. Never mind that December is half over. We still need a tree and hubby and I are going back and forth about whether to get a real or fake one. I am totally over the real tree idea (vacuming needles, refilling water) - I have enough work to do as it is - but hubby is set on having "the real scent of fresh pine" in the house. I told him that we can get a fake tree and I'll get him a spray bottle of the pine scent :) He's never had an artificial treee before so I think he's expecting it to look like Charlie Brown's. We're still in deliberations.

Lastly, congrats to Justice Ny on landing a fabulous new job! She is much too modest (and busy) to brag about it herself, so I am doing it for her. You go, Mommy!

That's all for now. Check back soon for another great giveaway...

Congrats!!!! 2lbs! Now for me to get off my butt to exercise.

We got a fake tree when we got our cats. Thank goodness. It's so much better to have babies crawling around and no pine needles to chew on. If only I could convince the little one to stop playing with (and breaking) the ornaments.

Wow! Congrats on the success!

We love our fake tree. It's low maintenance and in the long run saves money. And although I feel a little party-pooperish with a faker in the living room, I'm never jealous when I see those families in the cold picking out their tree and trying to tie it to the car....

You go girl!! Tell hubby fake trees are the way to go. I grew up with fake tress. We probably had a real tree twice that I can remember. Fake tress are great. Good idea on suggesting the spray bottle pine scent.

Congrats on the 2 lbs! I started Weight Watchers the week before Thanksgiving and so far have dropped just over 6 lbs.

Keep it up!

Your post inspired me to get on it and decorate the tree. We have had it up since Thanksgiving with no lights or decorations. Sad, I know. Congrats on the lbs! That's quite an accomplishment, keep up the good work, your bloggy friends are cheering you on!!
