Accent Challenge Vlog Linkup...


Today I am doing my FIRST EVER VLOG! and linking-up with Trista from Stewart Street for the Accent Challenge Vlog Linkup

Like you'll see in the video, I tried to do this yesterday but life got in the way. But here it is in all its glory!




I'm off to the Queen City for a work friends Bachelorette Party so I won't be able to watch any of the other Vlogs from the link up until tomorrow :(

I hate listening to myself so watching this made me cringe but I'm still gonna let you all see it!

HAPPY EASTER!

Weigh-In Wednesday...


button


I'm down another 1.5 lbs from last week. Which brings me to a total of 19.5 lbs lost. And I know that number should make me feel so great about myself but the truth is, it really doesn't. I thought I'd be super happy to have lost almost 20 lbs but I look at that number and can't help but think that I should have been able to do more in three months. And I know its crazy. I know have unrealistic expectations for how fast the weight should come off. I just can't help but feel these things and I want to be completely honest about my weight loss progress

I think the most frustrating thing is that my trip to Vegas is only 18 days away and I am nowhere near where I wanted to be weight wise before I left for Vegas. I wanted to wear a bikini by the pool and shop for new clothes for my new body, but that won't be happening. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on clothes for an in-transition body. I want to get to my goal weight and be able to go on a huge shopping spree for all brand new clothes since none of my clothes will fit anymore

I'm also worried that I'm going to come back from Vegas 10 lbs heavier than when I left and it will be almost like starting back at the beginning. I've never been so afraid to go on a vacation before. Normally I eat and drink as much as I want and then worry about the repercussions when I get home. But I normally haven't already lost almost 20 lbs. And I just can't help but feel like I will get so discouraged if I come back and see a horrible number that I'll just give up completely

My chances of winning back my $ in Erin's DietBet are slim :( I haven't been able to work out as much or push myself as much at the gym because I've been sick and can barely walk without feeling like my lungs are on fire. I was really hoping I would win BUT I will say that the plus side to trying to win the DietBet, even if I don't end up winning, is that the times I really want to cheat or splurge and eat something ridiculous I keep thinking about trying to win. So even if I don't get my $ back I still got myself to a lower weight than I was before
__________________________________

I'm heading to the Queen City on Friday morning with some friends from work to do a mini stagette for a co-worker that's getting married in two weeks. She's originally from Nunavut so doesn't have many friends outside of work around here so we wanted to do something for her since she wasn't able to have a stagette with her friends at home. I'm on medication so I won't be able to drink at all very much but I think it will still be a good time. I'm just hoping I can still make good food choices and don't completely blow my very slim chance at winning the DietBet
_________________________________

I know I said I'd stop whining about being sick but I just had to share this with everyone. I went to the Dr. on Monday and posted all about it here . I had wrote that everyone should cross their fingers for me that the Dr. would do a good job of pleading my case to the ENT and get my surgery bumped up but didn't really expect anything

That very same afternoon I ran downstairs to the basement, leaving my cell phone upstairs in my purse. I came back up to my office two minutes later to see that I had missed a phone call from a number I didn't recognize. I'm not supposed to use my phone during work hours but I just had a feeling that I should check my voicemail. Imagine my surprise when I listen to the message and its from the OR scheduler from the health region I'll be getting the surgery in and they have me placed on an emergent cancellation list and THEY HAVE AN OPENING

I called her back right away and it went to her voicemail. I left my work phone number hoping I'd get a call back.  Five minutes later the phone rings at work and its the OR scheduler. Aaaand they had already managed to fill the spot in the ten minutes between us playing phone tag :( . BUT I now know that I am on the cancellation list so there is hope in the near future. Now I'm just left feeling a little bitter towards my Dr. for not putting me on that list a year ago! I'm gonna ;ook at it glass half full though and just have to hope that I'll get another phone call soon :)

Finish the Sentence Round Two...



Linking up with Holly and Jake for Round Two of Finish the Sentence:

1. If calories didn't count, I would eat... at the Olive Branch (a local restaurant) every night of my life. Mmmmm

2. On my Prom night... We don't do Prom here in the GWN. We have graduation day. We have a supper with our parents, followed by a ceremony where we receive our diplomas, listen to some speeches, and then dance with our escorts and parents. The ceremony is followed by a grad party in somebodys field where we all change out of the expensive dresses/tuxes after only being in them for about four hours and then get shit faced until the wee hours of the morning. Good times

Me and my HS BFF's on Grad day... As you can see we were already drinking and this was before any of the festivities started... We're from a small town, its the norm around here...

3. When I go to the store, I always buy... english muffins. My freezer is completely full of english muffins right now. And I haven't even eaten one in about a week because I'm trying to win my $ back in Erin's DietBet but I can't.stop.buying. I need help

4. Family functions typically... end with a fight. Christmas 2011 I almost had to perform CPR on my cousin after my brother put him in a choke hold until he passed out. We all thought he was dead. Like legit dead. My brother was almost in tears thinking he had killed our cousin. But it was all good in the end. And my cousin who thinks he's so tough will never live it down that his baby cousin took him out

5. I think my blog readers... are awesome for reading my ramblings... You guys rock

6. I'd much rather be... in bed with Taylor Kitsch. Just saying...

7. I have an obsession with... Las Vegas. I've been there 6 (almost 7) times in the last 4 years. I can't get enough!

8. My work friends... are good friends which can make things difficult since I'm also their boss

9. When I created my Facebook account... I was in College and you had to have a College email to even sign up. My friends convinced me to sign up and I loathe them to this day for talking me into it! I hate FB with a passion

10. My least favorite word is... I don't even want to type it. Lets just say it rhymes with 'lets get it started' I have no patience for anyone who uses that word

11. I really don't remember... much about my high school graduation day. I was wasted before we even went on stage to receive our diplomas. At Grad Party I jumped on the back of a guy that had just kicked my friend (a girl) in the stomach and beat him over the head with a go-cup full of Vodka... 

Grad Party. Like I mentioned, we change out of our expensive dresses and throw on our warmest clothes (and ugliest apparently) so we can party in a field and not worry about getting our clothes dirty. By the end of the night we were drenched from the rain and covered in mud... but I wouldn't have had it any other way

12. Justin Bieber... is from Canadaland so I've got nothing bad to say about him

Once Again I'm Sorry...


Once again I have to apologize for my lack of posts last week (other than Weigh-In Wednesday). I missed over 20 hours of work last week due to icy roads and I usually do my posts during my lunch break at work. I barely even found time to read blogs *GASP*. I'm still playing catch up from posts from last week. (So if I comment on a post of yours from a week ago that's why!)

So on Friday I didn't head in to work because of the roads. I figured I'd have a relaxing day at home since I had big plans of getting stuff done on Saturday and Sunday. (My to do list is a mile long).  Then I saw that my cousin posted on FB that she would be down at the new daycare painting for awhile. I decided I'd be a nice person and go help her out for a couple hours since I wasn't working,  then I'd hit up the gym and then spend the rest of the day relaxing. I even put my work out clothes on under my painting clothes so I wouldn't have to stop back home afterwards. And that's where my relaxing day flew out the window. My cousin had somehow convinced our Aunt to help paint to and the three of us painted and painted and painted. Before we knew it we had been painting for three hours. By that time we were hungry so we decided to break for lunch. I called my Mom and we picked her up and the four of us went for lunch. Were making plans to go spend a weekend in ND with all the girls on that side for a girly weekend since we all had so much fun when we went to my cousin's then fiancees stagette.  We planned some of those details and then decided we'd go back and finish up painting. Then another 3 hours went by. When we finally started packing things up to call it a day I was exhausted and there was no way I was going to be able to walk, let alone run, at the gym. I decided it could be my one rest day and headed home.

When I had woken up Friday morning I had a little bit of a sore throat but really didn't think anything of it since I am constantly sick with throat infections. I usually don't even notice pain in my throat anymore until it's  really, really bad. As soon as I got back to my house and sat down I felt like absolute crap. Sore ears, sinus headache, super sore throat, even my eyes were hurting. I tried taking some cold medicine but nothing worked. That's when my plans for the entire weekend went up in flames. My huge to do list that I was hoping to have completed didn't even get started. Instead I spent basically the entire weekend between my bed and the couch, feeling sorry for myself and contemplating performing a tonsillectomy on myself. (No joke).

When I woke up this morning I could barely talk. If I hadn't missed so much work last week because of weather I would've called in sick. And I NEVER call in sick with throat infections since I get them so often. As soon as I got to work I started calling the Dr.'s office. And calling. And calling. And calling. An hour later I FINALLY got through and got an appointment for 12:00. As soon as the Dr. walked into the room he knew why I was there. He jokingly (at least I hope) told me he would take me out back and remove my tonsils himself. Then he told me it wast time to refer me to an ENT to talk about removing my tonsils. 'Umm, HELLO you already did that a year ago you idiot' was going through my head and it was so hard not to shout that at him. I calmly reminded him that I had already been referred and had went last April and was now one year down on a two year waiting list for surgery. Then he had a light bulb moment and decides he's going to write a letter to the ENT and plead my case for me. So please, please cross your fingers that it works! and so do my meds. 

(And I'm sorry for the long post about my problems blame it on the meds. I guess once you haven't posted in a while you feel the need to elaborate on EVERYTHING. I apologize).
____________________________

So in other news my co-worker who shares my office with me came to work this morning and I could tell that something was up. Finally after an hour of working in silence she tells me that her boyfriend had broken up with her on the weekend and was a complete ass while doing so. I was feeling the need to go Lake Bell in 'What Happens In Vegas' on his ass. But even just picturing him writhing on the ground asking 'Why?!' makes me feel better. I could tell that she was taking it hard so while I was grabbing my prescription after my Dr.'s appointment I grabbed her some Mini Eggs because nothing heals heartbreak like chocolate right??

____________________________

And finally, Trista from Stewart Street posted today that she is going to be hosting an Accent Challenge Vlog  Link Up on Thursday.  I'm so excited - I've been waiting for someone to host this link up since it was American Thanksgiving and everyone was vlogging Holly's Turkey Trot Linkup and pronouncing words completely different than I do. Like the word Pecan. I couldn't believe how many people pronounced it wrong (in my mind anyways). So since people have so many myths about Canadian accents I've been wanting to do my own vlog to prove that I don't say 'Aboot' or 'Eh'. (You gotta go out East if you want to hear that kind of stuff.) As long as my meds start kicking in and I no longer sound like a pack a day smoker I will be doing my FIRST EVER vlog for this link up! And I'm hoping lots of you will to because I wanna hear all the different accents!

When I think of Hank's voice I think of Bruce the shark's Australian accent from 'Finding Nemo'

Weigh-In Wednesday...


button

I'm down 1/2 a lb since my last weigh in and let me tell ya it was a huge sigh of relief to see that number. The weekends St.Patty's day festivities had me more than a little scared to step on that scale
_________________

I played beer pong all afternoon with my bro and SIL on Saturday BUT I omitted the beer since I didn't want to bloat. Instead I played with Alive mixed vodka drinks that are only 80 calories and I only had to have a few gulps of beer if I lost the round (which barely happened cuz I'm pro).  In between games or when I was sitting out I drank Malibu Coconut Rum with diet cranberry juice and a splash of 7-UP. And then the three of us decided we needed to hit up the Chinese Restaurant in town and my plan to drink and eat well that day went right out the window

The mixed berry is my favourite and for only 80 calories they are always a Summer staple!
                                                           _________________

Only two weeks left in Erin's dietbet and I'm starting to get scared. I might need to eat only carrots for a week straight to hit my goal. Oooops. But I WILL make sure I get my $ back!! 
_________________

I quit the C25K app. It was just too slow of a pace for me. I made up my own training schedule that lets me go at a faster pace and I am loving it so far.  I know that your supposed to stick with C25K even if you feel you should be going faster but I just couldn't handle it anymore. Hopefully I won't regret it
_________________

Last week my SIL and I went to the fitness centre and all the machines were in use so we went in the back room and put on RI30. I've only done it alone before at home and having someone else doing it with me definitely pushed me more. I made sure to do all the moves with no cheats. I'm a competitive person so having someone else to compare myself too made my workout that much better. The room is also surrounded by mirrors and I was shocked to see that the moves I thought I was doing wrong the whole time I did RI30 I had actually always been doing right.  I need to make use of that back room more often!   I woke up the next morning and my legs were on fire. I still made myself go to the gym and fight through it though. My  poor SIL however took 4 days before she could even bend down. She couldn't complain thought because I had forewarned her that Jillian can be a nasty bitch
_________________

And finally, I ordered my not-red ORB.  I definitely won't be feeling ready to wear it by Vegas but I'm hoping that by May 31st it'll be a go. (Pictures to come when it arrives). Can't wait for it to get here!

Weigh-In Wednesday...

I'm down one more LB since my last weigh in. That means only 2.5 more and I will hit 20 lbs lost!  
-----------------
I was a day late but I FINALLY joined Erin's DietBet. If When I get to my DietBet goal weight on April 3rd I will be down 24.5 lbs total! When it comes to having money on the line I will make damn sure I try my hardest to get it back. ESPECIALLY considering I had to pay more than the $15 with the exchange rate! LOL
-----------------
My sister and I are thinking of doing the Advocare cleanse the week before Vegas - the only downside is I would have to get it shipped to the US border because they don't ship to Canada :( 
-----------------
I am officially registered for the Colour Run in the Twin Cities and yesterday my cousin asked me to be part of her relay team for the Queen City Marathon in September. I have always wanted to be a runner and I would say I am on my way! I'm super excited for both of these events!

Be A Better Blogger...


While browsing through some of my favourite blogs I noticed that they have me and my blog on their sidebar to showcase blogs they love. ME! Right up there with Holly, Mama Laughlin, Whitney, etc. And it made me feel good. But then when I thought of how I haven't posted yet this week it made me feel like a bad, bad blogger. I want to blog everyday, I really do. But lately my life has been super void of anything remotely interesting (aka winter in SK) and I just don't find make the time on weekends to get it all done. During the week I work an 8-5 job in 'the city', a 45 minute commute from my hometown. The only chance I get to blog during the day is on my hour lunch break.  I'm away from my home for 11 hours out of the day. When I get home I'm completely exhausted from my workday. I eat supper and possibly hit the gym. That's it (unless I have meetings - then its a completely different story!). Sitting at my computer to write a post just isn't on my agenda for the night. I used to be a night owl and you couldn't pay me to go to bed before midnight. Now I'm lucky if I make it to 10:30 before my eyes are drooping

But I love blogging. I get more encouragement and support from women I have never met than I do from family and friends. And part of that is my fault- I'm way more open and honest on this blog than I am in real life. I bet none of my friends even realize that I have made a lifestyle change. Or that I have lost almost 20 lbs. Or that I'm just not the same person I used to be. Partying just isn't what its all about anymore. Now its about a career and saving money to get to NYC

Lately I have been spending a lot of time in front of the tv. Not to catch up on shows I like, thats for sure. I'm so behind on all my shows that I've pretty much just resigned myself to the fact that I'll have to catch up on all of them when they release the whole season on DVD.  So no, I haven't been wasting my weekends glued to the tv just for regular shows but for my love of the sport of curling. Curling has been on tv for the last 3 weeks straight and since I miss almost all of it during the week I've been making sure I catch all of it on the weekends

Now, ever since an episode a few years back, one that involved chasing after my then roommates cat, my laptop has to stay plugged in, in the exact same spot, or it will not work. I have accidentally bumped it before and it wouldn't turn on for 6 months. For real.  So it sits downstairs in the corner of my room and barely gets touched. Because I hate having to sit there and not be able to move it wherever I want to go. The reason for explaining all this: I've mentioned before how I can't stand to just watch tv. Or just watch movies. I HAVE to be doing something else too. It annoys my mother to no end when I am on my phone while also watching tv. But that's just how I am. I have to keep 'busy'. I've been thinking a lot lately about just biting the bullet and buying myself a new laptop so I can have the convenience factor back. I can sit and watch tv and still keep busy working on posts, catching up on posts, responding to emails, etc. A new laptop would be the answer to my blogging blues

I've never done up posts on the weekends or had them ready the night before. If I post during the weekday it is usually done super quickly on my lunch break. And it sucks. I feel like I have to rush through a post. Or I have errands to run on my lunch break and don't get a chance to post at all. Then I feel like a slacker. So even though I don't want to waste money when I have an almost perfectly good laptop that was bought brand new for me my 2nd year of College I just feel like it would make my life so much simpler. I could work on posts while still getting my screen time in or bring my laptop to work with me and be able to have my pictures just a click away. Nothing pisses me off more than wanting to do a link up and realizing ALL my pictures that would go in that post are 45 minutes away

posted awhile back that I was going to work on being a better blogger. And I am. I've got my tech savvy little bro on the hunt for a new laptop for me!! I really want an iPad but a laptop is just smarter for what I will be using it for. So hopefully once I get the new laptop I will make sure I am posting on the reg. I PROMISE!

You know what else doesn't help my blogging slump? The fact that I HATE my blog design. I've found some really great blog designers but I'm just not sure that I should be spending $100 on sprucing up my blog. Would it make me want to post more? You bet your ass. Everytime I go to post something I have to go back and edit a million things before it even looks right on my screen. I keep thinking that if I had a different design I wouldn't have to put that extra editing into my posts. So now that I have decided to purchase the new laptop I need to do some more thinking about a blog redesign...
And because no post is complete without pictures I leave you with a picture of my fat cat Hank, when he was just a wittle beebee, beside my laptop before the whole roommates-cat incident


You're welcome

Happies and Crappies...

The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up

HAPPIES

I finally got my hair cut after putting it off for 4 months (my bad)

I'm booked in to get a facial for the first time ever on Monday morning. AND I have a gift certificate for the spa so I don't have to shell out any of my own hard earned doll-hairs

A snowstorm hit SK Sunday/Monday and I got a snow day at home

I lost another 2 lbs this week

CRAPPIES

I just dropped $200 doll-hairs at the Dentist and found out I have to get all four wisdom teeth removed. FML

SK didn't make it into the playoffs at the Brier :(  

I had a horrible nightmare the other night that can still bring tears to my eyes if I think about it. It was so real

A snowstorm hit SK Sunday/Monday and now there is SO MUCH SNOW and the Dept of Highways and the town/city crews aren't doing a damn thing about it 


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Finish the Sentence...


button

1. People always tell me... I could never leave O-Town because I would miss my family too much (hello, I have left before people!) Also, isn't that why FaceTime and Skype was invented?!
2. In the movie based on my life... there would be drugs, arrests, scandals, alcoholism, and unplanned pregnancies (not mine FYI!). Megan Fox, Kate Beckinsale, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rachel McAdams would all be vying for the chance to play me. And Taylor Kitsch would play my non-existent  love interest
3. Typically, I end up regretting... When I run out of beer playing Beer Pong and start playing with wine or vodka...
4. I always ask to leave off the.... tomatoes. And mushrooms. Unless I'm drunk. Then drunk me eats that shit and sober me is left to regret it
5. Kim and Kanye really... need to eff off. I can tolerate watching Kim on KUWTK (just to make fun of her) but I cannot stand 'Imma let you finish' Kanye. They need to move to Nunavut and never be heard from again
6. My Parents always reminded me... 'beer before liquor you're gonna get sicker, liquor before beer you're in the clear'. You know, important life lessons ;)
7. Every single day I... search for a new job while sitting at my desk at my current job (on my lunch break of course....)
8. This one time in College... We took a road trip to Cow-Town for the weekend and decided it was safe to walk twenty blocks home from the bar through downtown Calgary... aaand a homeless man tried to pick me up and take me back to his cardboard box. I couldn't even make that up if I tried
9. My grossest habit is... Well since I'm no longer a nail biter I would have to say it's not washing my hair after I work out... that's why dry shampoo was invented, right?
10. My latest white lie was... legit two minutes ago. To one of my employees. I may or may not have told her that a picture frame got broken by a child when in reality it fell off my desk...
11. I know all the words to... Paradise By The Dashboard Lights, the movie Home Alone aaaand almost every episode of How I Met Your Mother
12. When I grow up... I wanna see the world (truth), drive nice cars, I wanna have boobies' (wait, what?). That song was RIDIC
13. Sexy time is... usually followed by morning after regrets
14. I will never, ever... let anyone else make decisions for me or hold the purse strings
15. I think it's hilarious... that T-Swift got P'O'd at Tina and Amy (yes I'm on first name basis with them - they are my besties) for their Golden Globes jab at her. They were hi-larious. Get over yourself Swifty

Weigh-In Wednesday...

Down 2 LB's this week (Whoop Whoop) for a total of 16.5 lbs lost since January 7th. I can't wait for the next 3.5 lbs to come off so I can say I've lost 20 lbs. Hopefully in two weeks time I'll be celebrating that milestone!!

Non Scale Victory of the Week

On the weekend I tried on my bridesmaids dress from my Cousin's wedding last August. I went to NYC/PA a week and a half before the wedding and before I left the dress was a little loose. When I got back from NYC/PA the dress was tight but manageable (apparently all the walking you do around NYC still doesn't cancel out eating out and boozing for 10 days... whomp whomp). And this weekend? The dress was falling off of me. There is no way I would be able to wear that dress anywhere now. THANK GOD. I love the dress and paid a pretty penny for it but I'm okay with it not fitting anymore!

Me on the right - August 2012

Dogs Are Babies Too Link Up...

I've always been a dog person, probably because almost all my life my family had a dog as not only a pet, but a part of the family. I can't imagine not having a dog. It just seems weird to me to think of people that don't have pets. Not that I am judging anyone for not having pets - I know how much work they are - but I'm just one of those people that thinks a family needs a pet

For 13 years we had one pet, a dog, Misty


She was all alone for 13 years before we got another pet. 
(I started writing about my first dog, and best friend, Misty but after writing and writing and writing I realized that her story is a post for an entirely different day. If you're a dog lover or like to read stuff that will make you cry, check back soon)

Now my family has three dogs and three cats but no one wants to hear about them and I swear they are the most spoiled dogs on the face of the earth

A few examples:
  • My dad cooks them supper everynight. Yep. Never cooks for anyone else in the family but his dogs get a hot 'meal' everynight
  • If I am dog sitting while my parents are out of town my Dad will check in to make sure I am feeding them their hot 'meal' 
  • There have been times I have had to sit on the floor because the dogs are taking up all the room on the couch
  • My dad owns a trucking company and the dogs go to work with him. They pile into his truck and head off to work with him. The dogs are well known by all the riggers in the area
  • Our backdoor neighbours don't have a dog. But they buy our dogs treats and Babies goes over to visit all the time
  • They get to dress up in adorable Halloween costumes that they LOVE wearing Who am I kidding, they HATE them, but since I love them they gotta deal




  • Costumes aren't just for Halloween either:
Funny story about those ears. I bought one for each dog two years ago at PetSmart. They were on sale so I figured 'why not', they would be SUPER adorable on the puppies. Then I got to the cash register. And they weren't on sale unless you were a PetSmart member (which I was not). FOURTY DOLLARS later I had three reindeer ears that stayed on each dog for about 2.5 seconds. Ungrateful pups
  • They have nicknames
Kendee- Babies, Bear
Tuff- Tuffer, Tufferton, Woody
Kirby: Kirby Birby, Kirbster, Kuwbee


Bear in her Harley Davidson shirt that I bought her for Christmas one year while I was in College. My poor college self dropped fifty doll-hairs on that only to have her get to fat to fit it


Kirby's 1st day as a part of our family 

Tuffer joined my family on a whim. My mom came up to the Hat to move me home for good after I convocated College and I convinced her to go to the pet store to look at kitties. $700 later we walked out with Tuff. He is a mix between a chihuahua and a long haired chihuahua but you would never know it looking at him now. His daily hot 'meal' has put Tuffer into the obese range and people usually laugh when we tell them what breed he is

Tuffer all grown up and a few  20 L-B's heavier than he was ever supposed to get


Life without dogs?

Dogs Are Humans Too :)

Finally Friday...


I've been a bad, bad blogger this week. I did at least get a Weigh-In Wednesday post up 10 hours later than everyone else. I've had meetings every night this week. That's what happens when its a short month and you have to cram in a staff meeting, work board meeting, and two meetings for boards that you volunteer on  before the month ends. I never want to a repeat of this week again. Like, ever

This weekend there is a get-together for a friend of the family's birthday and a baby shower for my 'Twin's' BFF that I will most likely attend. My 'Twin' had told me when her BFF was pregnant that she said she didn't want any kind of Disney clothing for her baby. So of course I am giving her a Disney outfit. Don't bite the hand that feeds you. At least I'm getting her something...

I stopped by the liquor store on my lunch break to grab some beverages for the b-day get-together. I was going to buy a Barefoot wine but decided that having to uncork a bottle of wine is too much work so I went with a bottle of good ole' Boones instead. I bought some SkinnyGirl Margarita too. Its not my favourite, I'd rather have a margarita full of delicious calories, but I want to see a lower number on the scale on Monday :)

Now I leave you with my latest IG picture:

 Me and my Graycie Bear :)
 

Happy Friday!
