Haha! Yea... souveniers... I try to keep them to people who actually asked for things. One of my friends collects shot glasses so I bring her one from everywhere I go, but other than that unless it's something spectacular no one gets anything! (except my dad - I've always bought him a hat anytime I go somewhere so he still gets hats... sometimes it's really hard to find decent ones!)
It's pretty silly, I know. Lots of those DVDs are super cheap too! $7 or whatever. If I actually used it that's such a good investment in my health! ...Emphasis on 'if'. But free is even more cost effective than cheap!
Where are you that you just got so much more snow? That's crazy! It snowed in parts around here on Monday but that was only at higher elevations (close to the ski mountains). It hasn't really warmed up much yet... still about 8 degrees if we're lucky, but most of this week has been beautiful and sunny! I feel like a sunflower with my face always to the sun trying to soak up as much as possible.
I haven't tried any exercise DVDs but I've considered it. All that's holding me back really is that I already have a Swiss ball, treadmill and handweights that I don't use. Plus, I keep telling myself that I could easily find some videos on youtube or something to try (Spark has a whole bunch, right). Still, I just haven't. Between work and sleep I have about 3 hours to cook, eat, clean and spend with my man and already that doens't seem enough.
Ah, now that's the weather is getting better I'm planning on having some of my boy-time be outside time too!
Thanks for your comment on my status! Super exciting :) I'm not OBESE anymore! I don't know if I can believe it. Not that one or two pounds make a huge difference, but it's a classification that sure does!
