Thanks for Flying the Friendly Skies

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Some randomness...

I look like a flight attendant today. I stepped outside my box and wore a scarf, this is sooo not me, unless I was flying the friendly skies, ha ha ha !!!!!!!!!!

Would you like peanuts or pretzels with your complimentary soda?


Just felt I needed to lighten my mood with a good laugh at myself, and it worked, I'm still giggling. Hope you are too. emoticon

    Well your the prettiest flight attendant I have every seen..LOL.. No really you don't look like a flight attendant at all. I love the look and black is my favorite color or non-color....
You look great - getting so skinny.. Great pic.
Thanks for the help yesterday in my blog. I got the calorie range changed and we will see if it helps my energy level.

New Duds

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I figured I better start shopping now for spring and summer, since I have donated all my old stuff. I realized I had absolutely NOTHING to wear, everything in my closet and drawers is way tooooooo big :) The pics don't really do the outfits justice, but I thought I would share my great finds. Ross is the place to shop. Can anyone resist a dress for less than $15.00? I think NOT.


This is a dress I bought for work

Cotton sundress, could be worn to work with a jacket perhaps. This really is a cute dress, it is navy blue, has a ruffled neckline and it gathers at the waist, you just can't really see the details.

For those summer nights and concerts at the beach


This one is especially for the DH, just in case we get a night out or I will wear on vacation. Smoking hot !!!!!!!!

Yeah for great shopping deals. I also got a top, but forgot to take a pic of that, it is PURPLE of course. All these great finds for a grand total of $52.00. Now I have to find some shorts and a tankini top.

A Busy and Lazy Weekend

Monday, March 07, 2011

I had a list of a bazillion things I was going to do over the weekend, and since I was off on Friday, I had an extra day to accomplish alot. So the checklist of a bazillion things is DONE - I grocery shopped, baked a cake, gave dog a bath, cleaned house, coupon clipping, got a hair cut, laundry, etc. Ooooh and the best part.... I got some serious retail therapy on Friday. I will post pics tomorrow of my hot deals.

Yesterday was a rest day, literally, I slept til 10:00 a.m. (which is unheard of), but then just kinda bummed around, made a breakfast protein shake, read the paper, stayed in my jammies til noon, I mean what else are you going to do with it pouring down rain. Helped my daughter bake a dessert to take over to her BFs house. Got dressed and took dinner over to a friend who just had surgery on Friday. Came home, gave myself a foot soak and pedicure while watching the Indiana Jones Movie Marathon, yep, I watched all four movies, I'm such a slacker, but I enjoyed just bumming around. And I had a couple helpings of homemade bread, my weakness.

Didn't sleep well last night though, I woke up about 2:00 a.m. with horrible chest pains and abdominal pains, almost bad enough to go to the ER, but I stuck it out. I believe I was having a gall bladder attack. I haven't had one in about five years, so I am hoping I don't have another one for another five years. Kinda scary with the chest pains, but having been through one of these before, I knew it wasn't a heart attack, thank heavens. So I just lay there trying to sleep, but the pain was excruiating. Now I'm at work, still in some pain, but less intense. Hopefully in the next hour or so, it will have all subsided and I'll be back to "normal".

Is it possible to resist homemade bread?
I'm sorry to hear about the pains. I'm glad they're getting better. Fingers crossed you are back to normal very soon. Is it something you ate that triggered it?

    Wow, doesn't seem fair after a weekend of such goodness that it should end with you in pain and frightened. Glad you came through ok, and I'll up the ante: I hope you never have another gall bladder attack. Sounds very disconcerting.

    Gallbladder is what landed me in the ER a few months ago (August I think). Those attacks suck!!!
