I feel like my brain is just Helter Skelter these days. I have so much going on that it's hard for me to have one complete thought. Do you ever feel like that? Between Christmas and planning Harper's first birthday and just normal keeping up the house/laundry/cooking and blog stuff and a few new projects I am taking on - my mind is all over the place.
I got a huge blessing today. My parents came to town to go the Razorback basketball game tonight. (I think they are 2 of the only 500 people there tonight. We are THAT bad). So they came and spent the day with us and kept Harper for several hours so I could get a little "mother's day out".
Harper just ADORES her grandparents. You should have seen how she lit up when she saw them. Well - you can probably tell in these pictures. My little day out was just what I needed. So refreshing. It's been so cold that I hate getting her out so we've been cooped up a lot. I went to Hobby Lobby, Target, Starbucks and T J Maxx. My four favorite places outside of Sonic and Wal-Mart.
- WEIGHT LOSS - anyone trying to do early December weight loss? I told you last week I would report in every Monday. Well - I did lose 2 lbs. I only worked out once which I'm trying to improve that this week. I did do a little better with my eating. The best thing I can do is just NOT buy any sweets. If they aren't here - I can't eat them. ha! That's pretty simple. ha!
- This is SO random but when I was in El Salvador - I turned on the TV and there was my favorite movie of all time in Spanish - "Steel Magnolias". I have to tell you - without the southern accents - it loses a lot of it's charm. So I was talking about that and two of the girls we were with had NEVER SEEN STEEL MAGNOLIAS. Say it isn't so! I was gasping for air. So today - Molly tweeted me to say her book club was possibly reading it tonight and she was making southern treats (she is in MN). I tweeted back to tell her to PLEASE Promise to see that movie. And then I was wondering - how many of you out there have never seen it? Please tell me you have. And which one is your favorite character - if you can even choose. (Mine is Truvy of course). (But I also love Ouiser)(and Shelby).
- I am doing one more giveaway HERE. Go check it out. And come back on Wednesday for a give away YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE!!!!!!
- Last thing - today on twitter - people were listing out good holiday snacks and I was reminded of these awesome ranch oyster crackers. My mom always made these at the holidays and I LOVED them. I haven't had them in years but now I want them SO bad. If only I wasn't on a diet............maybe some rules are meant to be broken. ha! Anyway - I put the recipe HERE in case you want to try them. You will thank me!
