it's my birthday!

yes, i am 46 years old today! i have gotten some great gifts:

  • $50 target card- i have decided to buy a gas grill and will add this to the $50 in rx gift cards i have already.
  • $50 gift card to my favorite gift shop- they sell vera bradley and tervis tumblers! my son and his wife cooked us a great dinner sunday night- which is halfway between our birthdays.
  • a new vera bradley purse and key ring in the baroque pattern- hubby asked me what pattern i wanted and i gave him the $20 gift card i got from vera bradley for my birthday. kudos to the saleperson who helped him pick it out!
  • i have a box of gifts coming from my oldest friend who lives in missouri.
  • a flip ultra video camcorder- just wait, i'm going to bore the crap out of you with my stupid videos of my dog!

now, drumroll-

  • $646! i won 2nd prize in a weigh loss contest i found on the internet! the buy in was $20. i will be buying a set of tires for my car and probably buy something weird with the rest. i lost over 60 lbs. in the last 12 weeks.
  • in direct contradiction to the above entry, my husband is taking me out for sushi tomorrow. we would have gone today, but i have my weight loss class tonight and i want to weigh in skinny! tomorrow, i will stuff my face with sushi!
i really have great friends and family, right? yes, people love me.


  1. Shut UP! How did you lose 60 pounds? Please, motivate me!

    Happy birthday, and congratulations!


Show me some love!
