Tea Cup

I love this skirt. It is so girly with its tea cup shape, but if you look close (and I didn't edit the pics to show...) it has beetles and bugs on it. Love that juxtaposition!

Happy Monday!

Somehow the wires uncrossed, tables were turned...

New hair cut, New glasses, RE-Newed health goals...

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes!

Thanks for the words, Patti (Labelle that is!)

Weight Loss Wednesdays

I lost my SD card for a bit and I had to go to Seattle Fashion week without my CAMERA! Grrr... (Runway show was OK. Gift bags were NOT so ok, just ads!)

It proves that I have hobbies outside of being a mediocre blogger and an even worse weight loser! Ha ha..

SO here is my revelation and promise to myself. I will move my body everyday because it is good for me. That's it. I will (try to)do it.

I would like the scale to move down, but it doesn't define me. So I am working on it...

With no SD card, I have been using my camera phone. It is actually way easier than uploading pics with my fancy camera, but not nearly as nice looking!

What is great about this outfit is that when I put it on, I FOUND MY SD CARD IN THE POCKET! See?!? It was a good day!

Gotta Love Target!

I wanted this dress right when it came out, but didn't want to pay full price for it... (yes, cheap I know...) BUT Target ALWAYS marks these lines down, so I waited...

I found it just last week for 50% off! $17 dollars (or something like that!) YAY!

I didn't like the little string belt that came with it so I cinched it at the waist with a braided brown belt and wore the belt backwards. I decided that the Liberty of London print was "a whole lotta look" so I went with it tying the little string belt around my head to bring out my flower power.

All day long, I felt pretty. My long dress swishin'. My hair hippie-in'. When my sister (who is not into clothes like I am) saw me, even she wanted to embrace her inner flower child!
The only negative thing is that even though I LOVE Target, I still felt like everyone was looking at the dress thinking "oh I saw that at Target"... Is that so lame of me?
Do you ever feel that way? Like a million others could produce your look?

P.S. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEANIE! I heart your face! :)

Happy Friday!

This dress is really pouffy after the belt line... In the pics, you can see it poking out of my coat! It's hard to call it a dress as I wouldn't wear it without leggings! (My booty would fall out! :)
But it makes for the perfect 1st grade teacher uniform.
I sit on the floor with kids, I crawl, I squat, I dance...I wear a lot of leggings to work.
Does the activity at your job dictate how you dress? I was just wonderin....

Have an amazing weekend! Enjoy the sun! (It is actually sunny in the NW! YAY!)

Tegan and Sara...

Watch out! Crazy eyes will get ya! I was trying to take a photo like the cuties at Have A Cute Day. Epic fail. Oh well.My bestie and I left town and headed out to Portland for the last stop on the Tegan and Sara tour. The concert was amazing! Those girls (twins at that!) have a wicked set list and an even sicker personal style! The theater was packed with uber hipster haircuts and the most cutting edge slouch skinnies with SUPER EXPENSIVE Onitsuka tigers! An androgynous look that I love and can NEVER pull off. (not with these hips...they don't lie!)
My bestie and I have been friends since we were umm....6 years old? Something ridiculous like that. She has kiddos and we barely ever get to go away together.
So we grabbed the oldest daughter and her friend and took them with us!
Damn. If I didn't know any better, I would think those cheekbones were implants! (I know better because they are on my face! Ha ha!)
Check out Tegan and Sara. And LOVE it!

Nice to see you all!

Class Picture Day!

Class Picture Day!Captured forever in over 20 kids' first grade memory books!
I hope that I smiled OK, that my hair stayed normal and my kiddos didn't do anything extremely odd in the picture.
Then again, I WANTED to do something really odd...
Because I think that it would have been super funny for the teacher to be the one making a face.
Like this...

Forgive me...Forgive me not...

Lately I have put the Blah in Blogger. I apologize to my readers (and fellow blogger friends) that I have been lacking in posts as well as comments. I have fallen off every imaginable "wagon".


I have taken to napping from around 5:30 to 9:00pm every night instead. I have been so exhausted lately.

It is the last 10 weeks of school and my job is to get all these kiddos reading at level by June. I put all the energy I have into that and it leaves me spent and wanting Rootbeer floats for dinner. Not to mention
this is also on my plate (maybe this is why I have been so tired?!? TOXIC fumes!)


I hope to pull it together soon. I need to pull it together soon. But right now I am enjoying the time off from society.

Photobucket Preach it Tom Cochrane!

Don't worry. I will return shortly.

And thanks for understanding!

Camera Phone and Cuteness

I have been eating and breathing this OLD NAVY cardi! Seriously. I wear it every other day!
I wanted to show my outfit today, but right after school I am leaving town (I know, I know...I am always gone!) and wouldn't have time to upload the pics. So the next best thing is....MOBILE BLOGGIN'! I snapped these photos right before I got in my car this morning! My DG sunnies lost a screw, so I borrowed these ROXY sunglasses from my sister (which I actually GAVE to her for her birthday!) She had some coolio ray-bans so she hopefully isn't missing these too much!

The tank is this great watercolor tank that I got from TJ MAXX for $14.99! Such a wicked deal!

Also my secret is still just that...a secret. Believe me. It is annoying me more than you. As soon as I find out the outcome, I will share it with you!

Happy Thursday!

P.S. Easter candy is on CLEARANCE! I can't resist a good deal, so I will skip that aisle! :)

Weight Loss Wednesdays

Weight Loss Wednesdays is postponed until next week. There was WAY too much of this going on over vacation. (sorry that I didn't edit the RED EYES out...) I have weighed in. I gained (but just a bit). I have fallen so far off the wagon I will have to RUN MY ASS off to catch up with it again! HA ha..

@Taylor at Auburn Not Red: I should have listened to you! :) But it was really fun while it lasted!

NO REGRETS because I had a BLAST!

It's good to be back!

Weight Loss Wednesday

Weight Loss Wednesday posted below "You like it green".

I am not sure why...

Maybe because I started it the other day and waited till today to fill in the info...

So if you are feeling spunky, scroll on down to it! (It has the eating plan in it!)

You like it green?

Hi Blogger Friends!
I have been so slammed with work. The school I work in gives a one page personal narrative to each student instead of a standard report card. It is a great thing to get, but a TON OF WORK for me! So I have been slammed with typing (so blogger typing counted as extra!)

This is me mowing Bean's lawn. It still cracks me up looking at these photos. He doesn't have a gas powered mower (yet) and this push mower was left with the house. This is the FRONT yard (the back is a DOUBLE LOT!) At least I am being green!
Yes. Yes. I do mow a lawn in flats, BF jeans, and a cardi. I didn't have any work clothes at the BF's house.

The neighbor yelled across the road "you need to get a picture of that!" Well here is a video...
It makes me giggle every time! (But I need a better way to upload so you can see the content as it sits there...Any ideas out there would be appreciated!)

Ha ha...

As for the inquires about my slow but steady weight loss plan, i will outline it on Weight Loss Wednesday!

See ya tomorrow!

Weight Loss Wednesdays

Me. With a jawline and a bit too thin wearing a brown hat.

Me. With no jawline a bit too chubs wearing a brown hat.

Today I am somewhere (closer to second pic) in between! But the good news is...

I am down another 2.2! Keeping track? That is 23.8 to go!

I had a lot of inquires about what I am doing and I thought that I would share: Please remember that I am not a doctor (and don't even play one on TV!) so go about it in a manner that is right and safe for you! Also go HERE to help calculate how many calories you need to shed the LBS!

Here it is:

Meal 1:(8:00am) 1/3 c. oatmeal,4 egg whites 1 yolk

Meal 2:(10:30-11:00am) 3 oz of chicken,fish or lean beef, 1/2 c rice or 4 oz potato,salad or veggie/fruit

Meal 3:(1-1:30pm) same as meal 2

Meal 4: (3:30-4:00) piece of fruit or veggies with 2 tbs peanut butter or slice of mozzarella cheese

Meal 5:(dinner) same as meal 2

Meal 6:(snack) Banana Smoothie (with skim milk and ice)

Calculate the calories and make it right for you. I can't eat gluten so this is gluten free. BTW... I am a Weight Watcher DROP OUT! It just wasn't working for me (not the weight loss part, the whole POINTS thing...)

I also give myself one dinner out a week of whatever I want... it keeps me sane!

If you have any questions at all, leave them in the comments or email me! I am glad to support! Believe me... If I can do this, you can too!

Weight Loss Wednesdays

So I told you all that I always pose with my food! I swear I have enough of these pics to last me 100 Wednesdays!

So here is the GOOD news! I am down 1.4lbs! YAY!

My friend Jen gave me a pretty great eating plan that I stuck with and it is working (with a few cheats here and there).

So I have only have 26 lbs more to go!

Great Day! Here's to another week of keeping on track!

I really wanted this to be a post about how my mom liked this shirt and tried it on and it looked like a tent on her, but for $10 bucks passed it my way...
I really didn't want my day to be tainted with my smoke and mirrors apartment.
I call it smoke and mirrors because it looks so PRETTY and it drew me in regardless that it is a) on the corner of crack central
b) on the corner of crack central with random gang issues.
But for less the $900 a month with a parking spot, washer and dryer, dishwasher and bamboo hardwoods, I threw caution to the wind and signed that lease!
It is just one of those old crack buildings that someone guy bought and put some cheap Cover Girl foundation on it.

I am referring to the fact that my wall heater caught my wall on FIRE and then I lived without a heater for over a month... (that can't be legal), but that isn't today's issue.

Today's issue is that my new refrigerator stopped working for the THIRD time! I lost the food in it again. I always have anxiety filling it with food anyways due to these previous experiences.

Beware of smoke and mirrors people. In apartments and in life...

But I am sitting here thinking of the day that I will live in a space that is comfortable. A home. A space that I feel like I can relax. And that my friends makes me smile!

Jeans: Aero

P.S. I am totally nervous about WWW tomorrow! Wish me thin thoughts!

I couldn't find THEM!

This is what happens when your closet eats your favorite go-to lululemon pants...You first throw a mini tantrum because you CAN"T find anything in this APARTMENT (OH the Drama!) and then you throw everything on the floor because you are sure your bestie (who missplaced hers as well) jacked them (love you bestie!)
AND THEN you see the light...Tiny reflectors stuffed inbetween your too tight petite Citizens and those cute skinnies that ALSO don't fit! No wonder they were lost! Who looks in THAT corner of your closet?
IN better news...I went dress shopping! Such great deals! They are from Aprie (Black Sack Dress- Gift Cert), AA (Le Sac Dress-$38), Old Navy (Striped Ruffle Sleeve-$20) and Ross (Blue Floral and Shirt Dress-$11 each)! I decided that summer HAS to come soon, so why not help it out by coxing it with cute dresses!
Also I framed my new poster! I got the frame from IKEA and it didn't fit, so my lovely Bean randomly had a mat cutter and cut the matt to fit! I LOVE it!

See you tomorrow!

Edit: OH my goodness! I am embarrassed about how messy my room is! Sorry MOM! Ha ha... This is me being real folks!

Big Hair, Big Plans: It's Friday!

Do you ever have days when even though you haven't lost a single ounce, your pants feel bigger and that makes you feel a bit better about yourself...
It puts a pep in your step and a smirk on your face- It's a secret that no one else knows...
Well this day was one of those days! My jeans are never too tight in the waist...They always get too tight in the hips and butt area! Ha ha... The classic PEAR.
But today my jeans felt that they had a little bit more give in them. Like if I HAD to get into a monster truck (hey where I grew up this wasn't uncommon), my pants wouldn't split up the back like a can of Pop and Fresh Dough! (seriously people...This has happened to me when I was younger and stupid enough to buy cheap pants that couldn't contain what I was packin'!)
So that brings me to this smile.

The secret one. The one only I (and now you) know about!
