Morning D~

Sorry about your troubles with Target....did I ever tell you that I worked there for about 2 years when I was in college?? Worked the floor for about a year in hardlines and sound, but then was one of the TPS guys that helped with security...talk about a boring job...

Anyways, wanted to drop in and share that while I am home this morning with a sick LG, that I started my PTR....

If it were me, I'd go with the blue shoes...I like the style better.

I can't wait to see the dress.

I hope Alli did okay at the funeral today. Sorry that Target has messed with your schedule.

I just thought of another theme..... STAR WARS!!! Seeing as how I'm going to get to experience Star Wars Weekends!!!! That's all I can think about now!!! Oh and FP+ that I get to start booking in a couple weeks!!

I hope Allie did ok at the funeral today. That was very sweet of her to want to be there for her friend.

I just want you to know I haven't forgotten your dad's birthday. We've just been busy and I haven't had a chance to have he kids do them yet. But they will be done hopefully by the end of the week.

She was the rock of our family and things are different without her. She also took care of us while mom worked when we were growing up, so really felt like I had a second mom. I miss her greatly, but hope she is in heaven playing cards with her family and having fun. In happier news, I have a DD3 and have been trying for a sibling for her for awhile, but have had 2 miscarriages. I am now pregnant, 6 weeks. Very nervous. Going for first ultrasound this week and hope to see a heartbeat. As you know, I also was lucky enough to finally get on your bag list and am so look excited!!!! V's hair and glasses are soooooo cute!! Will try to keep up if I can. Blue shoes for your outfit, but keep those red ones. Both are adorable!!!
Sorry about your grandma. It is hard when you lose someone your so close to.

Congrats on your pregnancy!! I hope the best for you when you go in for that ultrasound!! I know how scared you probably are right now with the waiting (I had 2 miscarriages before I ever had my first son and then 2 more after my 3rd child, now I have a very happy healthy 2 1/2 month old baby boy.) Keep us posted when you can on how things are progressing.

Well, I went out and found a few different styles of the blue sandals - so now I can't decide which style to get. LOL Yes, the coral color fabric is the main fabric of the skirt - the dots are the bottom hem and the flowers are the underhem (so you can't see the flowered fabric at all).

It's OK - I know that everyone is busy. I can't wait for you to finish your TR! WHOOT!

Have a great day today!
Well, if I am wearing shorts/capris/flip flops now in MN - I don't think I will have any issues wearing a skirt for one dinner out in Chicago... Even if it is colder by the Lake. Sometimes a girl must sacrafice for cuteness.

I know... I just love them. I know that Josh thinks I am constantly buying shoes - but really, I am not (I don't think... he has no idea how many pairs I've left behind! ) I do buy a few good pairs every year, but I wear them to death. And I agree - I just love thos fabrics... I am very sad that the designer that designed them is no longer designing - I just loved her style. It's the same designer that made the fabric for my dress last fall...

I actually had shorts on the other day, and I was sitting out on the front porch reading - it was soooo nice. Now it's back to being cold - but we are at the end of it.

That is soooo sweet that Dan came out to surprise you! Whatta guy!!! White outs are scary... I had to drive in a bad one once, and I will never forget it - 40 miles of back roads and I couldn't even see the hood of my car! The only thing that saved me was that I drove that road every single day and I knew it was straight. Every once in a while, I could make out a telephone pole and know I was on the road... I was literally moving at idle speed. Thankfully I made it - but it was the scariest thing ever! So relieved that Dan made it OK - I hope you had a good weekend together.

I hope he had a fun birthday and got lots of love from your DIS friends!

Have a great day at Target today!
Yes, you did tell me that. Then I asked you if you took it on your flight with you? I was curious how you got it there... Glad that Dan was able to take it home with him to get the fixing started... Hopefully it will be ready to go when you get home. No worries about my Dad's gift - I appreciate the thought more than anything.

I am very excited about the skirt... I am not sure if I should wait to show it until we do our Dismeet mini-TR? Or if I should show it before that?

I was able to make it work out with the funeral. Thank you so much for your good thoughts.

This sounds like a FUN trip!!! I know how much you enjoy geocaching!

I am planning to pack my flip-flops, capris and t-shirts... I plan on buying a Chicago Disney Store hoodie while I am there, and I will wear that. I will have a pair of shorts with me, just in case it's nice... and I only plan to wear the skirt for the one meal.

You know, those pairs you love and wear till they are about falling apart and then you still don't want to throw them out? I finally made myself throw some of those out. But of course all that means is that I now have room for more pairs!
Hahaha... I am acquiring them and you are donating them... I am glad you were able to get some of them cleaned out and donated.

Hahaha... Well, the red ones were already ordered before I noticed they were the wrong color - but I wear a LOT of red, so I will probably keep them. I have not ordered the blue ones yet - maybe today? Then I am done with sandals for this year, unless I find a good deal somewhere.

I will, I am just not sure when... I haven't decided if I am going to post it now? Or if I should wait until after our Dismeet?

I've only recently discovered being able to make my own clothes... I find it to be so fun. I can work in my sewing room all week long, but it's fun to go back up there and make something that's not bag related. And then to try it on and realize it fits perfectly... Well, there is nothing better than that. Over my lifetime, I have spent countless HOURS trying on dress clothes in a store, only to find out they don't fit me properly and look hideous... FINALLY, I am able to make something for myself - tailored to me, and it fits the way it's supposed to, it's really awesome!

I hope LG is feeling better by now.

Yah - I like that blue too... It seems to fit that fabric really well.

I am very excited to show my skirt - I just love how it turned out!

The funeral went OK... I will explain below - I was able to work it out.

No worries Sandra... I just appreciate everyone thinking of him.

************************************************** ********

Well, Target worked out pretty well yesterday. I went in and immediately explained the situation. They were kind enough to let me take off for a couple hours in the middle of my shift to take Alli to the funeral. It was very nice of them, and very understanding of them.

So, Alli and I attended the funeral - We didn't know anyone, except for her friend, but I am glad we could go and be there for him.

Afterwards, I had to take her out for lunch because she had missed it at school... She asked for Chipotle - against my better judgement - I agreed. Again, it made me so sick... Sicker than I've ever been - not the horrid pain I used to have, but now it's digestion issues. Absolutely - positively NO MORE CHIPOTLE for me! I told them all last night at dinner, if they want to eat at Chipotle ever again, they all can go together - it is no longer even allowed for them to ask for it with me. LOL It's to the point that I don't even like the taste of it anymore, because it always makes me sick.

After the funeral, I went back to work for a few hours.

Frozen pizza was on the menu for dinner last night.

Josh had a meeting to go to...

Gus came over. Victoria and I played 2 games of Farkle (She beat me good both games...) in an effort to give Alli and Gus some time without us. But eventually, we had to sit in the livingroom, because there is really nowhere else for us to go. Then, Gus and I started talking about nutrition... as you all know - this is something I am very passionate about... So is Gus, appearantly. It ended up being a 1 hour discussion about wheat... And it ended with a promise from Gus that he would return with data proving to me that "100% whole wheat" is better for you than "other" types of wheat. However, I will have the opposite data, proving that all wheat sold these days is genetically altered, and not as good for you as Conventional Wisdom says it should be... LOL It was fun to be able to "debate" (that's not the right word really) with him - although the girls were a bit annoyed because we couldn't seem to get off the subject.

As a parent... I really like that Alli is involved with someone who is smart enough (and confident enough) to carry on a good conversation in a respectable manner.

Anyways... In other news...

Today is the first day of the month... So, it's weigh in day for me, and measurment day, and photo day... I feel like I have made good progress this month - despite taking a whole week "off" for our trip to TN. So, I am a bit interested to see how it comes out. I'll be checking back in later with that info.

I will also have bag photos for you today.

I will be starting this week's custom order this morning as well. Busy day ahead.

Thanks for all the well wishes for Alli yesterday... She told me to thank you all. Sending out prayers and hugs to all who need them today.

D~




Sorry about your grandma. It is hard when you lose someone your so close to.

Congrats on your pregnancy!! I hope the best for you when you go in for that ultrasound!! I know how scared you probably are right now with the waiting (I had 2 miscarriages before I ever had my first son and then 2 more after my 3rd child, now I have a very happy healthy 2 1/2 month old baby boy.) Keep us posted when you can on how things are progressing.[/QUOTE]

The conference about Cerebral Palsy is in Lillestrm (a short train ride from the airport in Oslo). So it's a 2 hour flight then a 20 minute train ride from home. It is held at a very nice conference hotel where everyone is staying. So it's a very social conference as well as informative.

How nice of Target to give you some time of yesterday so you could be with Alli at the funeral.

I'm sorry to hear that you got sick after eating the lunch. At least you now know that your body don't like that kind of food.

Sounds like you all had a nice evening last night.

I can't wait to see the skirt you made. I am in awe of all the things you can make. I thought I was doing so good, when I made my DD pj pants with a matching set for her AG doll.

My august trip dates changed, which is good and bad since we went from staying in 3 resorts ( then adding a night to make 4 resorts). We were doing 8 nights now we are doing 7 nights but all at BWV. We had to change all our ADRs, which my DH keeps on changing. He is trying to figure out if we should do DDP or TIW.

I am a bit aprehensive about posting these here, but another one of my friends posted their's in their PTR the other day, so it gave me a bit of confidence... These are my "official" pictures - the ones I only share with a few select people.

Here are my stats for the month of March... -4.8lbs (for a total loss of 48 lbs since March 16, 2013).. Wrist -.25, Waist -.50, Abs -1.5, Hips -2.75, thigh -.5 and calf -.25. All other measurments stayed the same. As a grand total number, I have lost 20" overall, I started in a tight women's size 18 plus, now I am wearing a jouniors size 13/14 comfortably, but they are starting to get big on me. I eat an average of 1650 calories per day, aim for 125 grams of protein, and right around 100 carbs - no processed foods at all. I lift heavy weights an average of 2x/week and I do light aerobic activity 2x/week. I dialed back the weights I am lifting beginning at the end of March to try and get a better range of motion with my squats. I am really starting to see some nice muscle definition come back in my knees/thighs, which excites me for short season.

Please note, my "before picture" was taken at the end of May 2013. My official start date was March 16, 2013... So, if I had a real "before picture" it would look much worse.

Your progress pictures are awesome! You look great! Congratulations! Keep up the good work.

I'm glad you were able to work out going to the funeral with Alli yesterday, I know you felt better being there with her than you would have sending her on her own.

I'll be happy to see the skirt pictures whenever you decide to post them. I found a tutorial yesterday for little girl twirl skirts - I'm really thinking I'd like to take a shot at them for the girls - maybe in red, white, and blue for 4th of July - I can't imagine I'll be able to figure out sewing by Easter My aunt is fabulous at sewing and lives about 30 minutes away, so I may see if she is up to helping me with my first couple of projects. I think I want to tackle scrapbooking our recent trip first though. I also really want to put together the shadowboxes from the girls' first trips. Too many projects and work takes up way too much time!

Hope you have a productive day! I have to have one here.

Wow, you are on such a journey and it's amazing. I just love to see people take charge of their health!! (and the "right" way, too)

I can't wait to see the new bag. And whoever mentioned Star Wars...I bet you could have a great auction for that for Star Wars weekends! I realized I misspoke in my post last week and meant to say I hope the custom sign-up goes well...sounds like it went so well you were full in a minute?! Wow!

I've been spending all my evening free time sewing to get everything done for our trip. It's exhausting, but fun.

D, I'm so glad that Target gave you a couple hours off to go with Alli to the funeral. That really was very nice of them.

And can I just add what an awesome job you are doing!!! You look absolutely terrific and keep up the good work.

Wow there's a huge difference in your before and after photos. Congrats on all your hard work. I'd like to see pictures of the skirt. I used to sew clothes all the time. I really should get back to it.
It was nice of Target to let you leave for a few hours for the funeral. Allie probably really appreciated it.
It's supposed to go up to 65 today but I live so close to the lake that it won't be that actually warm. I pulled out a short sleeved shirt to wear to work today.
Sunday my daughter went out to the thrift shops looking for vintage pyrex. She collects it. It boggles my mind want people charge for the stuff. It me, it's just the bowls I have in my cupboards not collectables. She did find some bowls and a casserole dish with a lid.
I have to wok 11-8 again today. I hope everyone has a good day.
