I’m not usually in the habit of doing a review of my week but the creative juices haven’t been flowing very well for a while now so that’s all you’re going to get today. Hope you don’t mind.
Where to begin?
First off, hell froze over and I got an iPhone. Yes! I joined the rest of civilization and became a mobile apple product owner. My hubby got tired of hearing me cry for one and finally gave in. It’s absolutely lovely. I’ve been taking photos using Instagram, checking my email while on the go, tweeting while out and about and checking Facebook while I’m at the doctor or waiting for my girls to get out of school. I’m having so much fun!
I signed in to Fitness Pal … again. My account was dormant for a while. After my 5 day vacation in California ( more to come on that in a future post), I felt the need to try and shed a few newly acquired pounds I collected while in the good ol’ U.S. of A! In just seven days of religiously tracking my calories and exercising, I lost a whopping 4 lbs! Can you believe it? Okay, I really didn’t exercise at all but I did track my calories. It’s just too bad that 2 of the pounds I lost were simply water retention I had from it being that time of the month and that I only really lost 2 pounds. Makes more sense. Who loses 4 lbs in one week? Not me.
Remember when I told you that I discovered Mary Kay products when my sister became a Mary Kay consultant? Well, I still love the stuff and I’ve even helped her with a few home parties she’s done since she first started out. I’ve been using the skin care line myself now for about three months and still love the way my skin feels and looks. Anyhoo, I love the product so much, I decided to sign on and become a consultant too. I’m joining forces with my sister and becoming a team. Wanna host a party? You’ll get two consultants instead of just one! Our last party, hosted by our cousin Nancy, was a blast. We didn’t get home until 12:30pm because no one wanted to leave. Well, that and because they were serving wine. Enough said, right?
Last but not least, this Saturday, my little family and I are set-up for a photo session c/o Silvia Photography. My little B was in a photo contest in May and won 2nd prize which got her a one-hour photo session package for free! I want to personally thank all of my bloggy friends who took the time to vote for her photo on Facebook. I think Little B ended up with 669 votes. I’m really excited to get a new family picture I can put on display in our home. The last one we had taken was before Little H was born so a new photo is definitely in order.
Not much else to report. My life isn’t that exciting no matter what I may lead you to believe here on my blog. I’m just like everybody else. Trying to survive this crazy thing we all call life … and doing it one day at a time.
Wishing all of you a wonderful, warm and relaxing weekend!
