I need to make 'em
I have steadily gaining weight since I quit smoking. Not good. I am, however, happy I quit but this is getting ridiculous!!

I need a change, I am not healthy, my self esteem is in the gutter, I cant physically do things I use to do. I. AM. FAT.

So, today I started the new Weight Watchers Points Plus plan. I'm doing it online because I don't even like to go out right now :( I'm a little leery of it since it is different than the old plan (which I know and understand) But I am committed to giving it a good effort!!!

Wish me luck!

Seeing red

I have to wear red and white at work today....I don't really do red....
So, I am wearing all black (my usual lol ) and adding these accessories :)


I made this awesome knit bracelet that my friend Vanessa told me about on this awesome website: V and Co.
I could only complete this bracelet after she put up the video tutorial....that says something about me lol
Once I started it was easy!

I also created these fabric flowers and slipped it on to my headband and Voila!

Happy Birthday to this guy!!

Hello blog world!! I know I have been MIA lately..sorry :) I haven't been feeling that well, I am better now but it seems to be a reoccurring this with me , so I have made an apt. with my Dr.

On to happier things:

Its my younger brothers birthday on April 9th! Happy Birthday Jordan!!

(me, Julie and Jord-being a goof of course)

Jord is an awesome guy full of spirit and spunk! He is very outdoorsy, loves to camp and fish, run and bike ride. He also doesn't 'do' the present thing for any occasion....and well, that doesn't work for me! LOL I love to give gifts, so what do you give someone who doesn't want anything???
Jord is also very health conscious so I cant even bake anything...

So, this is what he is getting......a fruit basket with organic fruit and a handmade card :)
He will love it!!!!

ps I got the basket at the thrift store for .49cents!! Jord will also love that!
