Thankful Day 1

So most people know that November is the month of Thanksgiving and that a lot of people use this as an opportunity to post things they are thankful for, whether it's once a week or every day. I have decided to do a thankful post every day if possible.

Now of course I am very thankful for the big things. Like my son, my husband, my family, friends, my job, a roof over our head etc. But I want this to be about the little things every day that make me thankful.

Today I am thankful for:

Hazelnut sugar free coffee creamer - it makes my mornings just a little bit better :)

"The Way We Move" - Langhorne Slim - I listen to this at least twice a day in the car and it just makes me so happy!! Love it!

Getting a great park at work so I didn't have to walk far in the rain.

The fact it stopped raining before I finished work.

The squirrel who was sitting on the side of the road as I drove by. Too cute.

All the people who said they loved my accent today.

The lady who said I sounded like I was from Boston. That made me laugh!!

The pair of J-Lo sunglasses I got at Kohls for $3 on clearance!!

I am going to incorporate photos into these posts too but I left this one so late that I won't worry about that tonight!!

Hope everyone had a great day!! xoxox

What's in my bag?

This is one of those internet things that has been around for years! And I love it! I have done it a few times on Flickr and once on Instagram over the years and decided to do a blog post about it.

Here are a few of my past years ones:


My first one ever, April 2008. I adore that bag. My sister gave it to me for Christmas and it was from the company she was a buyer for and it's so soft and gorgeous!!

Whats in my bag - version 2

August 2008. My pink phase! lol I was a little obsessed with pink! I still am a little bit but nowhere near as bad!

And here is what I carry around in my bag now:

I like to change my bags depending on my outfit and it was always a pain to change everything over into each bag so a while ago I came up with a system. I found these little bags to keep certains things in and I just move the bags over to each bag. I use clear ones so I can see what's in them. For my "feminine" stuff I used to have a black one but my lovely friend sent me a gift in the mail this week in that cute while bag so now that is my "girly stuff" bag :D

So I have one that is like a first aid type bag, bandaids, medicine etc. Then other one that is more beauty type stuff.

Another one for pens etc. I don't smoke but a lighter is always handy. The scissors come in handy all the time too! The top 2 are my purses. The tan one is my main one and the black one is for Reward cards, change etc.

I keep post it notes for Operation Beautiful. Check it out here I also steal mints from Chick Fil A because I LOVE them! lol

So that is what I keep in my bag!! What do you keep in yours? Post a link to yours in the comments!!

Weigh-in Wednesday 10/07

Yep. Not cool. I am pretty unhappy with myself BUT I will not allow it to freak out. I am getting back on this damn wagon. I was 147lb a month ago dammit!

So anyway. I am back on track as of today. Plus I am also in the job market! Eeeeek! Wish me luck!

Transformation Tuesday

It's been a while since I posted so I thought posting something inspirational would be good. And this is not just to inspire others. It's for me too. Because I have been terrible here lately. Like REAL BAD!

My eating is off the chart and I haven't been to the gym in months. I am hoping things will change this week and I am able to get back on the wagon. A lot of it has been things that are out of my control but hoping to get some of that control back.

I remember when that before photo was taken. It was Thanksgiving and I thought I looked nice. But now seeing the photos I know looked bad. It wasn't long after this that I decided to join Weight Watchers. And thank god I did! It has truly changed my life.

Now I just need to get back on track and get back down to my WW goal so I can go back to meetings again and then get to my personal goal.

Hope you all are having a great week! xoxox
