Wine & Love is the weekly meme where we all come together to just kinda share the highs and lows of our week – what has driven us to drink – either our woes or celebrations. You can link up over at WalkingWithNora.com.
Reasons for my Wine-ing this week:
* I have lacked motivation to really work out this week. I think after seeing a friend of mine who has lost a lot of weight – and she still looks just as sad and miserable as she was fat – that I just lost my will power. Truth is not only am I not THAT overweight, but I am also not THAT unhappy with the weight that I am. (I wear a size 9, I am ok with that) Mike and I both have put on weight since we got together, but I take it as a sign that we are truly happy with each other, and ok with an extra couple of pounds. I will continue to watch what we eat, and do fun stuff for exercise… just seeing her made me realize that thinner doesn’t really make you happier.
Reasons I am celebrating this week:
*My birthday weekend was amazing! I still look back at the pictures and laugh. It’s been a long time since I let my guard down to have close girlfriends, and I am so thankful that I have them now. It feels good to have someone I can talk to every single day again. I have missed that.
*SIXTEEN DAYS till school starts!! This summer has been AWESOME, but I am SO ready for it to be over. We have had a jam packed summer with trips to the Georgia Aquarium, the Marianna Caverns, my Surgery, going tubing a bunch of times… it was exhausting! The Toddler is starting Kindergarten (I am sure I will cry) and the Tween heads to 7th grade this year. I think we are ALL ready for the structure that school brings.
*Business is booming! I am so excited about the upcoming Holiday Selling Season as business is just absolutely BOOMING! Nothing makes me happier than getting to work with all of my “Divas” and help them be successful. I have made some huge moves this week that I know will take my business even further. I stepped out of my “comfort zone” this week with the help and encouragement of a friend of mine, and I am really excited to see how it all plays out.
*I have discovered all kinds of cool uses for my Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker. I hate an appliance that ONLY does one thing, so I am excited to discover all kinds of cool stuff I can cook in it. The original Pancake Pops were great but the ones with sausage were even better. And this morning I made Blueberry Muffins in it. They were fabulous.
*I am heading to Jacksonville this week to spend time with a friend from High School and help her get her business going out there. I haven’t been to Jacksonville in years, so I am really looking forward to going and checking things out! We have all kinds of fun stuff planned!
I think that is it! Sorry I am a day late again – I thought about this about 6 times yesterday and STILL forgot! *sigh* Yay for again having more Celebrations than Wines! You can join in and link up at WalkingWithNora.com
