But anywase.....I am still currently living in Hawaii and unable to buy a beautiful animal and am still on Weight Watchers so I really don't 'need' a standmixer.....
Oh Weight Watchers.... I really do love the way Jake and I are eating. I love that are meals are healthy and well thought out and I do love that I have lost a total of 6 pounds. Even it is 6 measley pounds (I have been on this blessed diet for 3 1/2 months) thats like 6 sticks of butter right? The lady at the grocery store looked at my ID card and said that I was looking good and that I don't look like the same person. However, you need to understand that I was wearing glasses at the time and wasn't laughing like a complete idiot like I am in my ID photo. It was awkward but at the same time made me smile inside even if she was exaggerating. I can't tell any difference and probley no one can tell but the little scale machine claims that I have lost the weight so that makes me a little happier.
I have been working on a completley hand-made Christmas stocking. Let me just tell you the directions come in tiny print and cover 2 sides of a sheet of paper longer than the average piece of computer paper. EVERYTHING is hand-stitched. There are approxiamtley 20,000 little felt pieces to sew on to this stocking. And 100,000 little sequins and beads to stitch in. It is still pretty pathetic looking. I have spent a total of 5 1/2 hours on it and have sewn... about 10% of the thing together. No make that like 5%. BUT, my mom hand-made all of our stockings when we were born and hand-made hers and daddies so I want to be just as cool has her and my memaw. Even if Jake doesn't understand all that is going into these blessed stockings, at least I DO and they BETTER look just as good as the PICTURE! It has gotten to the point where I have to keep my fingers under warm water because that happens to be the best feeling ever for purple,ugly, pin-pricked fingers. :)
|This is supposed to be a little cake on it's cake stand...|
|This will hopefully turn out to look like a gingerbread house|
|I wasn't exaggerating about the instructions...|
|The one of the right is 'supposedly' going to turn out and look like the one of the left.|
I leave 3 weeks from today to go home and see my family! I'm so excited! I don't like seeing them only 3-4 times a year. Aubree will be coming in the exact same day as me and hopefully we won't be at each others throats after the first weekend! I really do love my sisters :)
We are busy that week I am home tho. We have Sarah's shower, Sarah's Bridal portraits, and Leslie is SUPPOSED to have little Brooks! I am so excited tho. The only thing missing is Jake.... and a golden retriever..
Well I am off to make some Weight Watchers Pumpkin Bread! Aren't you jealous?? Maybe I'll be a little crazy and put some fat free cool whip on it!!! Yes, this is my life.....
BTW......HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMANDA SHOOK!!!!!!!!
