It's been sooooo long since i've been on here, with the holidays and all.  Not to mention my work schedule changed and all that good stuff.  Anyways, I hope everyone had a good holiday and could hold their liquor (unlike myself)...
Just wanted to share an awesome story with you guys.  It all began the day after Christmas, you know when Bath and Body Works has their Semi-Annual sale, yeah. So I took my boyfriend to work at the mall and hung out with him until the mall actually opened at 8 am.  Keep in mind it was flurrying when we arrived at the mall.  So I probably spent 2 hours at the mall shopping, because I've been on this mission for a new pair of boots, not snow boots, just regular ol' the other 6 pair I have.   I was very unsuccessful with the boots but got all but a new wardrobe for under $100.   So I leave the mall, which is about 45 minutes away from our house, but as I was cleaning the snow off my car I was thinking how grateful I was that I wore my cowgirl boots and not moccasins.  So I'm on the interstate, which hasn't even been touched by a plow, yeah going 40 mph on the interstate instead of 65 mph, it was rough but with being in a car that absolutely sucks in the snow, I wasn't pushing it. After all slow and steady wins the race, apparently.  So I stop at Kohl's on my way home because well, I'm already out in this weather might as well get some great savings on a pair of boots.  Total success at Kohl's, I got a pair of biker looking boots and a few shirts for like....$40 or so. So I leave Kohl's and of course the roads still aren't plowed, at this point I'm thinking they got lost or something...  So silly ol' me takes the fastest route home...the back roads.  Of course my car got stuck on a hill and 15 cars passed by as I sat there bawling like a big baby.   Finally 15 minutes went by and I'm still trying to get up this hill, definately not working.  All of a sudden I see a white pick up truck pull over, get out and walk up to me (keep in mind i'm still bawling like a baby). The guy asks if I mind if he tries to get my car up the hill, of course not, it's not like he's going to get anywhere if he tried to steal it. Then another guy gets out of his SUV from behind me and helps push.  Well these 2 fine gentlemen didn't have much luck with my car, but I give them kuddos for trying.  Luckily the one guy was going in my direction and offered me a ride home.  Yes, scary but I had my boyfriend on the phone the whole time and made it home safely.  It just makes me really happy to know there are people out there who are willing to help.

And so the wonderful "New Years resolution" began...losing weight and excercising.  So far I've lost 9 pounds, and my boyfriend....20.  What the heck?! This is not even fair!  And of course I've been sick with god knows what for the past week, even the dr. can't figure out whats wrong with me.  Guess I'll just have to wait it out, or sweat it out at the gym.  What's your New years resolution?

How's everyones weekend going?  This is actually my first weekend off in months!  And it was a 3 day weekend thanks to my dr. visit who made me stay home on Friday, can't complain!  Not to mention yesterday it was 60 degrees out, I actually got to turn the heat off and open the windows, in Janurary!  I actually just turned the heat on an hour or so ago, considering it's not going to be warm at all today, just rainy :(

I  have this plan now. After I get off this low calorie diet (i'm only allowed 1260 calories a day), which I thought would be hard but it's really not to bad, it's just getting my butt to the gym is the problem. Anyways, after this diet is over and I'm at my "goal weight" (130 lbs, rather than 159 lbs) I'm going to attempt to do a little something like "Julie and Julia", I mean it could potentially be fun, right?  First things first though, the oven needs fixed...still. Or we just need to invest in a new one, which would probably work out for the better.
