Technology and me? NOT BFF’s….

Here’s the thing y’all, to blog, you really need a computer, or laptop, or even a cell phone… any one of these things will suffice. And all of mine decided to die or malfunction. At. The. Same. Time. yuppers. a blogger with no means to blog. I was like a raft lost adrift at sea. Like a knitter with yarn but no needles. A quilter with no thread. A baker with no flour. Well, you get the picture. But now? I have my laptop back, and my world is right again. Sorry for the interruption.

Where did I leave you? OH! The Biggest Loser!!! It has been going well – in two weeks, I lost 7.5 pounds, that’s 4% of my bodyweight (and yes, I realize that you math wizards will quickly deduce that I started this venture at 182 pounds. No biggy, I am on my way DOWN, so it’s all good).  I have made many attempts in the past to get myself motivated to get healthy. This time I think I have found it – money! lol… seriously, though, something has clicked, and I am truly enjoying my daily workouts.

I have a couple more secret plans up my sleeve for the spring (and for now to get ready for spring), but I feel I should probably share them with the hubbs before I tell you all. And something tells me you guys will be far more excited than he will be. But we’ll see.

Anywhoooo… on a completely different subject… you know how I love couponing? well, I think I had my most rewarding haul this week. (I am not saying saved the highest %, because I have definitely saved more). I spent purchased $244 of groceries, and only spent $100. Wanna see what I got? I had to put it into 2 pictures…


Last weekend was a busy one for me. MarcyMade had 2 big events to bake for. One was for a young lady’s 13th birthday. She had a masquerade ball theme. Lots of kids. Dancing. And purple cake! And MANY yummy cupcakes! YUM!

And with that, I bid you a sweet rest of your day!
