Random Musings.

.01. Having a hard time adjusting after the long weekend. It has been incredibly difficult to wake up in the mornings, but I'm thankful the weekend is just around the corner.

.02. Had the best time playing games and hanging out with our small group last night.

.03. Beyond excited to see NEW MOON tomorrow with my future sister-in-law.

.04. Driving Garth crazy with all my calorie counting lately. He does not enjoy me following him around the kitchen to analyze the nutritional value on everything he is using.

.05. BUT due to said calorie counting Garth has lost six (!) pounds and I have lost 2 (and hopefully more once I weigh-in tomorrow).

.06. Doesn't it drive you crazy how boys can change a few things in their diet and drop like crazy? But I'm really proud of him! He is eating super healthy with me and working out everyday.

.07. I've been reading Cook Yourself Thin and I know the key to losing my last 7 lbs is to start cooking, especially making my favorite meals healthy. So that is what I'm going to do!

.08. Starting with making this recipe over the weekend, hope it's yummy.

.09. Looking forward to meeting with our small group pastor tonight over coffee to learn more about the vision of the small group he wants us to lead.

.10. Garth still thinks the house I posted yesterday is a bit small for the price, but he agreed to look at it with me, woohoo!

.11. Can't wait for the Biggest Loser finale next Tuesday. I'm pulling for Amanda, though I hate how she calls herself America's Choice but I think Rudy is going to win it, thoughts?

I'm on last few pages of the New Moon book. I would go see the movie this weekend but I have to study. Waah! I love the house! It is the cutest thing ever.

This totally drives me nuts, too!

BTW, love that house you want below! I'm rooting for you!

Ooohh I really want Danny to win!!! Rudy annoys me.

Mrs. Potts said...

It drives me crazy too!
I've got my fingers crossed on the house. :)

Lynsey and Brian said...

I'm pulling for Amanda!

That recipe looks delish!

sabrina said...

I am pulling for Danny, and I cant wait either... but the finale is so bittersweet bc then we have several weeks before the next one comes on!

Heather said...

New Moon was awesome!! Enjoy it.

I am also pulling for Amanda. I hope she made enough votes to be top 3. I think that Danny is going to win though. He is like a weight loss machine!

Brandi said...

I'm favoring Danny and the hubby is for Rudy. He chants 'Rudy' 'Rudy' 'Rudy' just like the movie and I think it's hilarious!

The house was adorable!! I loved it! With just the two of you it would be perfect! I think it just depends on how long you plan on staying in your first house. We plan to stay in ours at least 3 more years and then move on to bigger and better. I've had the house almost 5 years though so we will be ready!

You will love New Moon - amazing movie, much better than the first.

It drives me insane. My mom and I are always working on dropping a few pounds. I can do it a bit easier than Mom can, but my stepdad can just start shedding pounds at will. Of course, he never has the will but...

Tabbie:) said...

congrats on the weight loss!!

I can't wait for the biggest loser finale either!! I want Rudy to win!! I love that show!! I can't wait to see how incredible everyone looks!!

So glad it's Friday eve!!

Lauren Kelly said...

I'm proud of ya'll on the weight loss and eating healthier, and that you're sticking with it. It's so much better when you have somebody to do it with!!! :)

Seriously, Garth better come to your side, because that house is adorable!!! :)

Q, La, and Gooner said...

I've been counting calories too! I've been losing and I know it is because of my food journal! Yay for your last 7 pounds! That is totally awesome!

SassyEngineer said...

I do hate how it seems guys can easily shed pounds with a few changes. It sure seems like my hubby did! Hang in there though - I know you have been doing awesome!

Anne said...

Good job with the cooking and weight loss! Hope your next weigh-in goes well!

Elizabeth said...

Have a wonderful rest of the week. I am counting my calories too! It can be tough!! :-)

Annie said...

i love biggest loser! i want rudy to win!! ;)

Lauren said...

I'm with you on Amanda...something about Rudy just bugs me so if it's going to be one of the guys I choose Danny!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

what games did you play w your small group? Yay for more weight loss, you are doing awesome! definitely let us know how the recipes turn out!! =)

Mary Michal said...

Yay for going to see the house. I can't wait to hear what you think of it in person!!

Maria said...

I want Danny to win The Biggest Loser. He is my absolute favorite!!

Patience said...

It makes me batty that L can drop weight like crazy and I do not. Ugh! I love the house and I hope it ends up being perfect for you.

Lil' Woman said...

Big Man eats the whole damn kitchen and he doesnt gain a pound..I eat a snickers and it's stuck to my hips for like 4 years

Carrie @ Laugh Love Eat Ice Cream said...

I know what you mean about guys being able to lose weight quickly. My husband had to lose 5 pounds after a few weeks of spluging and it only took him one week! On top of that, sometimes he "accidentally" loses weight! So jealous!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is super cute too! I just became a follower. :)

Kate said...

I love the Cook Yourself Thin cookbook. I can't say that I follow their recipes religiously.... mostly because the recipes I've tried... we have some serious clean-up afterwords (Maybe thats where you lose all the calories... doing all those dishes after!) - I really like the "Pasta-ala-Notka" I think thats the name. DELICIOUS! :)

Kassie said...

I LOVE the house below, btw. That little "coffee" nook is beyond gorgeous.

But seriously, "boys can lose weight easily" thing? How annoying is that? Darn fatty hips for future children. :)

Lisa said...

Danny is my favorite BL contestant and I am so rooting for him. Ditto your feelings on getting tired of Amanda saying "America's choice". Bleh...

Perfectly Pleasant said...

Congrats on the weight loss! And that receipe looks yum!

Pamibelle said...

Good luck with the weigh in and convincing hubby about the house. I fully believe that the wife actually picks the house!

New England Girl said...

I think Rudy will win, but I really, really want Danny to win. His attitude has been great throughout the whole season and I love that he's changing not only for himself, but because he so passionately wants to be a great example for his kids.

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I second the looong week. Thank goodness today was my Friday. You can hate me. It's okay. :)

Kuddos on the weight loss!! I LOVE Cook yourself Thin. I haven't tried that recipe yet, but I've featured a few on my Tasty Tuesdays.

Brittany said...

I had the opposite. My week flew by, but then again, I had a crazy week! There was not time to think about it being slow. I too, am pulling for Amanda!! Can't wait to watch Tuesday!

Shanny said...

New Moon was sooo goood!!!!! You are going to enjoy it =)

Mrs. S. said...

I love the Biggest Loser, and I think that Danny could win it...he has lost over 200 lbs! Wow! I am antsy for the finale, too.

Have a wonderful weekend!

In this wonderful life... said...

You will LOVE New Moon!!

I wish I could drop lbs as quick as men! NOT FAIR!

hope you have a good weekend!!

My Husband's Watching TV... said...

I don't think either girl has a chance to win...sorry! Loved New Moon but, of course, the book is better. Good job on losing weight and cooking healthy!

Yankee Wife said...

Sorry girl. I think that Danny's gonna win. He was lookin' pretty good this last week. Congrats on the weight loss! I know that if I were to cook more we would drop a few pounds too. Now to get organized and on top of that!

AmyT said...

New Moon was great, hope you enjoyed it. I am pulling for Amanda too.....!!
