My Weekend--So Far!!

So far, this has been a nice weekend. Friday night, my Small Group had a get-together just for social purposes. We each brought an appetizer-type food, and we sat and talked and laughed and played "Apples to Apples". I love being with them--a great group of people just enjoying each other's company.

I did take some pictures, and I spent some time looking (again) for my UB cable (see, I even know the proper name, now!) so that I could share one in particular. But, it is gone again! I'll be willing to take bets that Miles "The Sock Destroyer" has something to do with this!! It is always sitting right beside my computer, and it is gone!!

When I find it, whether the picture goes with what I'm writing about or not, I'll be sure to share it with you!

Saturday was spent doing household necessities--paying bills (Thank you, God for providing for me--there was enough to cover all the bills plus a little extra!), running to the post office to mail said bills and a book to someone, then on to the grocery store to buy only healthy food.

I'm following the e-mealz plan (point system for two). This is how I lost almost 5 pounds last week! Since I have a lot of the things left over from last week, my bill at the grocery store was only $53!!

This plan is amazing!! Only $5 a month, and you can choose which plan you want to use--regular for 5 or 6 people, low-fat for 5 or 6 people, plans for 2 people, and more. This even comes with a list to take to the store so you know exactly what you need for each recipe. I've had leftovers to take to work for lunch, so this is just wonderful.

I wasn't going to do this--thinking to myself--an extra $5 a month--but then my son who has gone from over 300 pounds to 190 and wants to stay that way--said that we should and he would pay for it! So, off we go!

This plan takes the thinking of "what should I make, what should I eat, how many can I have" right out of the weight loss problem! If you're interested, you should check it out! Just click on the link at the bottom of my blog, and it will take you right to their site!!

Then yesterday afternoon, I almost completed two new items for my etsy store. They should be up by this afternoon.

Then to top it off, I joined the Carefree Holiday-or-Not KAL. I'm going to be knitting for Christmas anyway, so a little added incentive always helps! There are only 100 spots available, so if you're interested in this, please check it out right away because I'm #69! And free yarn for prizes!! Just click on the picture to your left or the link above, and you'll be there!! For those of you who don't knit or crochet, stop by anyway and see all the spectacular items people will be receiving for Christmas presents--one of them might be you!!

Thank you, Aunt Kathy, for posting about this, otherwise I wouldn't have known!

By the way, I know that I've said several times that Aunt Kathy is not really my aunt. But, I have heard from her, and she says that she will be my aunt anyway!! Thanks, Kathy!! You know that I could really use a nice aunt in my family right now!! So, from now on, she really is my aunt!!

I know that a lot of you who read this already know Aunt Kathy, and some don't. If you don't know her, be sure and stop by and visit her. She has been my inspiration to weight loss and healthier living. Drop by and give her some encouragement and cheering on, too!!

Today--preschool class, then church, then home to finish up those etsy projects, start my Holiday KAL (oh, no--I have to find that cable now in order to post pictures there!), and finish the baby blanket for Kristan. The blanket doesn't count in the KAL because I started it before October 1st. Oh, well!!

Make sure to stop by The Power of Your Love! I'll be posting Internet Cafe Chat there!

K--that's all for a while!

Wow - busy gal! Hope you get everything done.

And congrats on the weight loss! I started back exercising today - walked 2 miles this morning. You inspired me!

I will be checking out that website. I could lose a few pounds (or 20!) and I need some help (she says as she snacks on chocolate for morning tea!). Sigh. Is there any hope for me do you think?
