I'm Not Dead...

The hubster has been home for nearly two weeks now, so I'm attending to his every need (cooking, cleaning, and *ahem* everything else).

Speaking of cooking, have I mentioned that I am TWENTY-SEVEN pounds skinnier than when I started Weight Watchers four short months ago?? I am so sexy, I have to stop myself from making out with the mirror!! Bwa-ha-haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I still have more to go, but I am so happy with my progress!

I've also been busily crafting birthday presents for my niece and a friend's little boy. I can't wait to show you pictures! But, it will have to wait because I know my sis-in-law reads this blog and I don't want to ruin the surprise!

We've decided to grow a garden this year, so we've been working on designing the raised beds and containers. We ordered our seeds and plants and I can't wait to get them!! I just hope I don't kill nearly $100 worth of agriculture!

I've also been learning how to use my new camera, so you can look forward to many fantastic pictures!

For now--how about some Henry Wiener eye candy! Look at this gorgeous SOOC (straight out of camera--no editing) shot from my new camera!!

Great picture and YOU TOTALLY ROCK with the weight loss!

I can't talk about my own weight loss, as I haven't been to the gym in ages (stupid house selling stuff being my excuse) and I've been stress eating besides (stupid house selling stuff being my excuse).

Yep, at this point I'm going to have to either take drastic measures or face the fact that I'm just fat and deal with it, or skip my 20th reunion altogether. Hmm.

Wanna go to my reunion and pretend you're me? :D

You ROCK ON with your releasing of the pounds. Awesome, Carrie!

Can't wait to hear about your garden. I am like Ouiser in Steel Magnolias, growing more tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash than one family can consume...so I give them to anyone who crosses my path. "Want some fresh 'maters? HERE YA GO!" But I love it...I cannot wait to start digging in the dirt. It's my passion.

Brandy said...

Woohoo! You sexy little thang you...27 pounds rocks!

I wish I could grow something...I've managed to kill every plant I've bought in the last 3 years.

But I'll keep trying. Got any tips??!

I'm not screwing around anymore. No Ms. Nice Fatty.

The fact that I can't afford food this weekend while away will really help jump start my weight loss!! WOOT!

Amy @ Finer Things said...

Aw, that Henry Weiner looks so innocent. He's not looking at you because he can't find you, you've lost so much darn weight!

Michaela said...

Lilly J said...

Hello! I would love to email you, but can't find your address here. Could you send me in the right direction?

Kat said...

Many congrats on your weight loss. I have got to get myself on some sort of program. But I keep eating crap. Because it's easier. And quite yummy.

I want to be a gardener. But...I am way too lazy. And I think that my knees might never recover. I want Michael to build me some raised beds...raised to counter height :-)

Amie said...

Love the W.Watcher comment about not being able to look in the mirror without... anyway. I need to get started with that again... need to get my motivation first or I'll just flop! You've inspired me though.

Cute blog!
