for a life update: staying rather busy. still on the diet. total weight loss: probably like 2 lbs. sucks. havent had a dr pepper in 3 weeks. still walking with my friend mary. we made it ALL the way up the mountain yesterday! yayy! distance from her house to the mountain- 1.7 miles. up & down mountain- appx 1 mile. back home- 1.7 miles. oh yeah...its kicking my butt. sore again today. didnt make it all the way up today because i had somewhere to be. so we cut it short.
i'm waiting for that "AH HA" moment when my clothes are loose and the scale shows less. it hasnt happened. maybe i need to cut more out of my diet? ive been much more tired lately and sleeping very well at night. the whole no caffeine + working out. kicking my rearend!

anyways. shooter (the puppy) is still super cute. love him.
mike came home from work friday with a bouquet of white gerbera daisies! my favorite. (he said the lady at the floral shop asked...are you sure you dont want roses? haha, so she asked if he at least wanted a red bow on the vase!) for valentines we went camping. just mike & i on friday night. took gracie & shooter. it was fun. had a fire & hot dogs. it was SOOOO cold. in the middle of the night i got in the back seat of the truck instead of the bed of it. i must say it was fun looking up at the stars. but i still dont think i'm the camping type. (jill and jim can attest to that.)

work is going...just going. haha. it has its ups and downs.
i bought a sewing machine. kind of excited about it. oh my craft world has opened. once i learn how to use it! this weekend i plan on organizing my craft room & setting it up! & having my mommacita come teach me as much as she can. WOOHOO!
well thats my update. toodles


owl love you forever

if you didn't know, i love owls. for the bulletin board outside our classroom- i did a tree, and made to owls to go on it, with different mix scrapbook paper. :) and then i cut out letters... Owl Love you Forever! :) then the kids each did an owl out of hearts... so cute. would anyone expect a different take for february?! not from me! haha.

So its been 6 weeks since christmas when the pups were born. which means its time we can give them away... mikes brother scott is taking the two grey twinners. one girl(the original one i wanted!). one boy.
mikes other brother karl, is taking mrs. chow looking one. :) haha.

its so wierd. they all have at least one black spot on their tongue like chows. some lots more than others.

If you know anyone who would like one- buy one, let us know. we are keeping a cute brown one- St. Nick. but we have 3 others up for grabs!

I've gotten 8 orders for headbands this week! (which totals in 12 since last week!) :) yay! & then yesterday i learned how to make a yo-yo & made harley a clip! its cute, if i do say so myself!

well, i'm staying busy although i typically only work AFTER work just one day! the crafts keep me busy. plus working out for over an hour every day after work!

um, sorry to kate & jill. you will not see a picture of me in this post. :)

hope all is well with you all. have a great weekend!
i'm off to clean!!!!


bet you.

so my sister and i started a better. kind of just to motivate eachother to get in shape. if i tell people about it maybe i'll do better.

so the rules- no soda, no sweets, no fast food. all the things that made up my diet until exactly a week ago. we may cheat- if we choose to on the weekend. i shared a sprite with mike at dinner saturday & then i ate some chocolate yesterday. i had to. it was screaming my name on saturday at the store.

first one to lose 10 lbs wins a shirt. (amy correct me if i get any of this wrong!)

last week, i didn't work out at all.
today- 1 hr. 15 min. workout. walked about a mile to a mountain from our neighborhood. then went partial way up this steep mountain. came down, walked back a mile home. i have a feeling i may be sore tomorrow. the girl from church i'm doing it with- 4 mo. prego...and she looks GOOD. but i think we were both dying walking up the mountain. so i didn't feel so bad. except, shes prego. and i'm not. so i'm REALLY outta shape hahaha.

well...here's to healthy habits and losing weight.
i guess i better go cook myself something healthy. i came home from the walk and cut up a pineapple...yummm.

well thats my update. maybe i'll try and take a picture of the headbands i've been selling so you can all see & tell everyone you know :)
