home again, home again, jiggy, jiggy

Had a great time. Laughed alot and shopped alot. Bought just alittle. Tried not to worry about the superficial, and was pretty successful. I ate well. We shopped so much we barely had time to eat. I got on the treadmill 2 out of the 3 mornings. My sister has a home gym in her basement. SCORE! Got lots of compliments. Loved that. I was kind of a whinner. I started in with a cold the day I left and tried to fight it all weekend. I am not a "suffer in silence" kind of girl. I had a hard time sleeping, not sure why. I FELL into my bed last night. Slept so good.

Now it's time to play catch up on blogs. My boss just walked in I gave me a long list of things to do , grrrr. So catch up might have to wait. Will post some pics when I have some extra time.

I put on a skirt for church yesterday morning, and it was so loose! I just had it on like 2 weeks ago and it was fine. I was shocked! Happy and shocked.

I read the book Shattered Silence, The Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter over the weekend as well. I can not say enough good things about this book. The woman that wrote is named Melissa G. Moore. She was featurted on Dr Phil and Oprah. We are reading it for our church book club. It is a page turner for sure. Kind of hard to read in some spots. In the end it's very uplifting.

Keep the mood and the food.........


  1. Glad to hear you had a great time. Way to go on a loose skirt too. Sorry you weren't feeling your best. Great job getting in some workouts too. I saw her on Oprah, I use to love reading those type books (true crime) but lately they are tough for me to read. Sad some people are so crazy.

  2. Welcome home! Awful to travel with a cold. Great to find out clothes are too big.
