This and that on a Monday night.

I know I complain on twitter about my puppies sometimes, but I love them so much.  I mostly complain about the young ones.  Bogey and Daisy are so rowdy and exhausting.  Every day they chew something else up.  

It has been 1 year since we lost Callaway and sadly Harley isn't doing so well. 
 I'm not sure how much longer she will be with us.  She is moving pretty slow lately.

Bless her heart.

Bogey is such a good boy.  He is wonderful with the kids.  He is loud and rambunctious, but we love him.  Hopefully he will calm down a bit soon.    Look at him below...he is enjoying the fire one day last week.  Haha!  He is about to fall asleep sitting up.

I really want to lose 10 pounds.  About 2 years ago I changed my lifestyle and lost around 25 pounds.  I have kept it off and now I want to get serious about losing another 10 pounds.  I think I may have to start running more often, or I should work out more consistently.  I just can't seem to lose those last 10 pounds. I think for me watching what I eat works best, but I think if I work out that would jump start my metabolism. I feel better when I work out.  I just don't make time for exercise like I should.  I have decided to run, walk and ride my bicycle more often.  I also plan to participate in this years "Reindeer Romp."  I think that will get me ready for some of the runs I want to do in the spring.  The Mud Quest event was cancelled this fall due to the drought.  It was rescheduled for the spring.  I need to start getting ready for that.  haha!  I hope since I put this out there I will hold myself accountable.

Today I shopped for clothes for myself.  I am so happy with some of the things I found today.  I can't wait to wear them!  I am horrible at making choices.  I made myself shop and try things on until I finally found some things I liked. I didn't know what I was looking for, so that made shopping hard. Once I realized what I wanted then my problem was narrowing down all the things I picked.  Gosh, I am a mess, huh?

I got a few tops similar to this one from Belk

I wish I could explain how much I am loving selling Thirty-One.  I really wish everyone loved Thirty-One as much as I do, but we are all different and I promise this blog isn't turning into a Thirty-One blog.   The products are just so amazing!  If any of you local folks want me to gather my stuff for a party at your house let me know.  We all need a reason to have a girls night out.  I will travel if you are in my hometown, or cities around there.  Just let me know...I will come to you and we will have a fun time shopping!  Also...for all my out of state buddies...let me know if you want to host a catalog party.  Basically you get all the wonderful hostess rewards and all you have to do is show the catalog to your friends family and coworkers!  Email me your address and I will mail you a catalog!!

I am loving the Showtime Series Homeland.  We usually don't have the extra channels on our channel lineup, but we got a special promotion with this contract and we are loving it!  We love watching all kinds of movies and mostly Homeland.  It is so bizarre and intriguing.  Gary and I are hooked!

So I still haven't seen The Help. Can you believe that?  I can't wait for it to come out on DVD sometime in December.  I think it will be such a great movie!  What a great gift idea for me, and a slow cooker..hint hint.  Although after today my Christmas list will be minimal.  I spent all my 'would be' Christmas money on clothes today.  Budgeting is no fun, but so necessary.  So Merry Christmas to me...heehee!

I can't wait to have ths babe & lose the baby weight (plus the 10 lbs I never lost after Micah) and shop for new clothes. It is so hard to shop for myself though. I love the gym & working out in group exercise classes (never thought I'd say that!) but I need to watch what I eat to lose otherwise the gym just helps maintain my current weight.

I need to lose weight so bad but I just can't get motivated for some reason! I did so good losing weight after I had Grant, but some reason it just didn't happen after Eli! I just told Jason last night that I need a new crock pot:)

Glad you found some cute stuff! Once I got into the habit of exercising it got easier. It's just part of my routine. Of course I've been sidelined due to this hip but hopefully that will be good soon.
