Thanksgiving week....??

Last week was Thanksgiving week.  The week consisted of two days of school for my girls...

Then on Wednesday we drove up to Dallas, to my Mom's house (i.e. The Farm)

then we went to a Disney on Ice performance with Meemaw...
 Lion King
 The Little Mermaid

 Lilo and Stitch
 Minnie and Mickey

 Peter Pan

came back to her house, spent the night, drove back down to our house, got ready to go, and headed over to a dear friends house for Thanksgiving dinner, of which she made the whole thing.  It was nice not having to cook for once, lol.  So after dinner, we went Black Friday shopping.  I've gone with other friends two other times, but none compare to what we did.  There is just something about the thrill of waiting in line to get the good deals, and making new friends along the way.  It was a lot of fun.  We were out shopping and saving for 12 hours straight.  I finished our Christmas shopping for the girls (who are being really spoiled this year for some reason), and I was able to get a few things for the house...waffle maker anyone?  Between all of the busy times of this season, I've been slacking in my blog.
I am still losing weight at a steady rate.  Down to 195.  My husband is coming home for R&R in the near future, and I couldn't be more excited to see him.  So as the time goes on, I will still be on hiatus for a while.  We have Sierra's 7th birthday just around the corner, Christmas, our 10th anniversary, him coming home for R&R, and then our small vacation, and sending him on his way.  Plus, I'm taking my Mom to a rodeo in Dallas for her Christmas present this year.  I can't wait.  Its going to be a lot of fun, and much needed fun at that.

What are you up to this holiday season?

Losing slowly, but steadily...

Down to 202.2 as of this morning.  Woohoo!  Yup, that means in 3 1/2 months I've gone down 59 lbs!  Fantastic.  I have yet to consistently work out, but its getting better.  I'm feeling better, I believe that the blood clot is slowly going away.  I have been struggling with figuring out my food.  I'm getting it little by little, but I do sometimes get complacent and eat things I shouldn't.  Overall, things are getting easier by day, and I'm very grateful for that.
I am hoping to lose another 5-10 lbs in the next month or so.  I have yet to buy any new clothes, I have clothes all the way down to 8-10's, so I'll be good for a while.  I am really excited to see where this journey takes me.  Its taken a while, and its been a bit of a struggle, but its getting easier every single day.
That's my little update!  =)
