Co-worker flattery and High Jinx

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Tonight I went to visit the shop in order to sell candy bars for my co-worker's daughter's cheerleading.

We were goofing around and T threw a key at mechanic Brad. In turn mechanic Brad told T "You're lucky she is standing there" to which T replied "she'll protect me" and stood behind me. I flexed my biceps and mechanic Brad burst out laughing... he said "That is like a twig trying to hide a grape ape"

I looked at Mechanic Brad and said "Are you calling me a twig"?
He said... "Funny, she knew who the Grape Ape was, and I didn't mean to insult you"

I smiled and said "No, thanks for the self esteem boost - I see lemon goodies in your future"

It was pretty funny.

I never thought there would be a day when I was called a twig

Shopping! More photos

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

My first pair of big girl shoes - I have never owned a pair of real heels in my life



My new scale - measures weight, body fat %, muscle mass, and water %
(plus a photo bomb by leroy)


I had to have this tea. It isn't decaf, and it was $11.00 for 30 bags, but it sounds magical (excise the Little Debbie cakes, they are his, not mine)


I also bought some shapewear at Victoria's Secret to wear to the gym, but I don't think anyone wants to see that... haha!!

I had a wonderful evening with my BFF Amanda. We went out for Mexican food, and honestly, I barley ate.

PC Fit was awesome! You know, I feel my sexiest and my most beautiful when I am at PC Fit -- Strange isn't it?

Have a great night Sparkies!

    Love the big girl shoes! When I worked I had 249857394587 pairs of heels, and I loved each and every one of them. Also, walking in heels is a pretty good workout for the legs. Just an added benefit.

That tea sounds delicious! Anything pumpkin spice has to be pretty good.

And GREAT JOB on not eating much Mexican. I have no control in the face of Mexican food.

Hope you're having a good Wed!

    Love your big girl shoes! I am clumsy and the arthritis in my knees is bad news for stuff like that, but I've always wanted some awesome heels. The best I can do is the wedges. I love pumpkin spice stuff, so I hope your tea is awesome! :D That is great about your scale, are you loving it? What kind is it?

    Wow, you don't look like the same person! Granted your bangs in the second pic hide your eyes a bit so it makes a face-against-face comparison a little trickier, but still! You look a lot younger in that 2nd picture. Not to mention all sassy hand-on-hip posing, compared to the "i'll hold still for this if i have to, but i'm not going to like it" pose of yesteryear. Great job!
