yes, i admit it.. I do love online shopping.
I recently purchase a pair of Aerosole boots from Shoebuy.com for $23 incl. free shipping, a Burts Bee's gift pack from Target, $9 pink watershoes from Land's End as well as 2 pair of flannel pants for $15 ea. And something else I ordered? Gaah! I can't even remember. Well, it will be a nice surprise when it shows up at work! Oh, yeah, I ordered some things from Lane Bryant.. i just remembered! I was so excited when I saw the dress/shirt on the markdown rack @ Lane Bryant but knew I could get a better deal online. Here's a picture but, please, keep in mind that i am short and this shirt/dress actually fits like a dress on me.. it is NOT super high like in the picture!
At any rate, for the dress, I purchases one in two sizes to make sure that one fit, and a few extra things ( t-shirt, etc) and still paid less than what it would have been in the store, with free shipping, and bonus points AND I get $$ back to spend in the store! Whoo! Deal.
Other than shopping, I did box up some of my clothes that are too small. Much more of that to do. It will be nice to walk into my closet and see only things that I can fit into..
Spring is coming.. I think. Looks like rain in the forecast this week. Spring always makes me want to rent the Oasis '(what;s the story) morning glory' CD from the library.. I think I will!
Met with our onsite nutritionist on ?Wed? this past week. She wants me to eat at scheduled times, etc. I'm ok with that. The only thing that I don't like is the request to eat as soon as i get up ( even if it is just a handful of cereal)
I'm meeting two new work friends @ the work gym at 6am tomorrow :)

I'm dropping out of the BLC 15 challenge. I don't keep up with the weekly requirements and don't focus on the exercise/nutrition piece. I've barely logged in to SP at all lately because I've been so busy. Yes, all excuses but it's real life!
The saying goes, "It's OK to fail, but never quit" and I guess that I don't agree with that! Although I wish that I'd been able to manage staying on the challenge, I am looking forward to backing off the guilt that I had for not being able to keep up with the requirements, for not having time to focus on this. Beating myself up and staying on the challenge isn't helpful for them or for myself. Good time to bow out, I say.
What do you think? Is the saying true? Should I have stuck in the challenge and failed? or is it ok to quit?

Painted my paws red for Valentines Day. Mainly because I NEVER do my nails, so, on my day off last week, BFF and I went to a training school ( 2 manicures for $11 plus tip). Well, I went all glitter on my nails that day.. 24 hours later, it had started to chip off of 1 nail. 48 hours later it looked like I was in a fight. So today, I took the glittery off and used a red-tinted nail hardener.
It's super windy tonight. I can't sleep.
I'm still having issues with my computer. I don't know if I need a replacement power cord, or if there is something "loose" in the connection into my laptop. Sigh. I have the same problem with my cellphone charger in the car.
Now, for a recipe that I saw for Valentine Smore Bites- www.crazydomestic.com/2011/02/every-

Ugh. I remember watching Ion Life one day and the lady was showing uses for microwaves, one of them being making fish in parchment paper for quick meals taking 2-4 minute! I can't remember what show it was ( I think it may have been "Living Better" with Ellie Kreiger) .. If anyone saw this, let me know!
She basically took some white fish, added lemon juice, herbs, cut veggies, etc. wrapped in parchment paper and microwaved for two minutes for a nice, fish meal. Quick and easy. Just can't find that episode/info online. I did however, see this link
and this one
