Catching up from vacation.

So much to tell you about!  Buckle up!!

My Parent's Wreck
Speaking of buckling up, I'm so glad my parents did!!  I told you about their wreck.  Well, this is what their car looked like.  Super crazy!  I truly thank God that they are both okay.
Friday & Saturday (aka shopping extravaganza)

You know that I planned to shop when I went on this trip.  I even took my suitcase only half full in anticipation.  I can assure you...we did some shopping.  I will try and put up pictures each day going forward of my new outfits.  There are enough to last for a while, that is for sure! 

My talley:  14 shirts, 4 jackets, 5 dresses, 7 shorts/capris, 1 pants suit, 3 jeans, 2 bathing suits, 5 bras, 10 underwear, 5 work out shorts, 2 pairs of flip flops, 2 pairs of earrings, & a purse.  Ridiculous!  But super fun!  Everything was purchased at discount stores and most everything was on clearance sales.  It is amazing how many more options I have now that I don't shop in the "Womens" section. 

Friday night we met my aunt, uncle, cousin and cousin's daughter for dinner.  I love spending time with family!
Saturday, my dad was with us and we stopped at Parrot Key in Ft. Myers Beach for lunch.  It really felt like I was on vacation!  You can see one of my new shirts in this picture.

Easter

We went to church for Easter even though I had started to feel bad.  I think I caught a cold.  Boo!  I'm wearing one of my new dresses in this picture. 

I got home Monday and was feeling terrible.  I stayed home from work yesterday and spent most of the day in bed.  I feel much better today though!

Weekly Weigh In

I usually weigh on Mondays, but I'm using Tuesday's weigh in since it was back on my own scale.  I lost 2.2 pounds this week.  YAY!!  I didn't reach my aggressive Lent goal, but I still lost more than I would have had I not pushed myself.  I will give you my April monthly loss on Monday.

Pictures

Some of you have asked about my April picture, but I usually update them at the end of the month.  I have so many outfit choices to choose from this time!! 

Here is today's new outfit:
I have a super-duper NSV to share with you all very soon.  I'm thinking that Friday might be the day to share.  (Don't get too excited...it isn't that big of a deal to anyone but me.  Ha!)

I missed you all and can't wait to get up to date on everyone's blogs!

HUGS!!

WOW, that's some serious shopping! Good for you for making an investment in yourself. I love the dress. Doesn't it figure that now that we're finally able to show off our legs, long dresses are the new 'in' thing!
You look fantastic.
