Morning Folks!!!

Everybody get yer butt out of bed and let's do the Thursday Dance :carrot: :carrot: :carrot: :carrot: :carrot: :carrot:

I love Thursdays!!!! It's the day before Friday...nuff said.

Well, I'm chancing posting this as I may loose the post en route to the site but I do hope not. I still pop on and read posts as much as I can. It seems to be posting things that causes most problems. This computer is very old and I do need a new one but I've been trying to hold off due to the cost. It will be a while before I can spend the money on what is still a non-necessity compared to other things we need. Thanks for the smart advice to back up my files. I plan to do that this weekend - especially the pictures!!!

I hope everyone is hanging in there and has a terrific OP kind of day.

:yawn: Good Morning,
I'm still dragging this morning, I don't know what's the matter with me, I just don't have any energy. But I'm up and dressed and ready to go to Curves, maybe I'll get a burst of energy there.
Yesterday was bad day, eating-wise. Maybe the freezing, dreary weather had something to do with it, but I was craving comfort food all day. I guess it wasn't as bad as it could have been, but I ate way too many grain carbs, and drank hot tea and coffee instead of plain old water. It was just one of those days. :( Today I'm going to try to climb back on the wagon.

03-16-2006, 08:00 AM
Mornin' all. Went out dancing last night, so I'm running short on sleep. :yawn: Must grab coffee on the way to work.

Yesterday at work turned out to be hectic. I had planned on going out at lunch to shop and grab a salad. But, we ended up with a client on-site who was waiting for some stuff, so my boss and I ended up having to work through lunch in order to do quality checks on it. Didn't get a chance to even eat lunch until after 1:00, and then had to get lunch from - :eek: horror of horrors :eek: - the vending machine! Or, as we call it, the wheel of death. lol Glad those days don't come by very often. Today, the mantra is water, water, water.

Freaky - Yep, definitely backup those pics. I need to do the same on my PC! I forgot to tape American Idol last night, but we saw a glimpse of it on one of the TVs at the club. I wasn't surprised by who got voted off, but I was really surprised to see Ace in the bottom 3. He's so cute, I figured he'd be around for awhile.

Cottage - Hope you're not coming down with something. I kind of felt the same way last week - just draggy and no energy. Hope your workout perks you up.

Everyone have a great day!

03-16-2006, 08:21 AM
:coffee: :coffee: :coffee: !!!!!!

Morning all you MORNING LARKS !!!!!

I'm off to Curves to work my blubber!!!! Will check in when I return! :wave:

03-16-2006, 08:31 AM
Morning Ladies. Have any of you read the article about water posted? Here is the link. I find it interesting.

Freaky- I am with Thursday!

JanaM- Totally agree with you on the idol thing. I was a little shocked on the bottom three. Not my choices for the bottom! I really couldn't believe Ace was there! He looked pretty shocked himself.

Hope all have a grea Thursday!

03-16-2006, 08:54 AM
The word for the day is DISCIPLINE! And I sure need it. I let all kinds of things go undone while on phase 1. "I just don't have the energy to work out. I don't have the energy to clean. etc. etc." So today, I don't care how I'm feeling. I'm going to get things done. My goal is to have the house clean by the time hubby gets home from work. So that gives me about 4 hours. If I can just get back on track, maybe I can stay on track. (One can hope. :) )

Freaky - Computers suck, but ya gotta live with them. Best of luck with yours.

Cottage - Ahhh the wonders of living on the beach. Fall off the wagon, wake up the next day and jump right back on. No worries.

Jana - Vending machine!?! Ugh! Let's hope things work out better today. :)

Schatzi - MORNING! :D

Amelie - That's a great article. Too many of us feel guilty for not floating away in the amount of water we drink. Here's to drinking normally and not stressing!

Toodles for now.

03-16-2006, 09:17 AM
I'm here early today! The earlier daylight gets me moving and I hate to lay in bed when it's so bright out. If only it was warm!

Freaky, sorry about the computer problems.

Cottage, dreary weather does the same thing to me, especially when it's cold. I hope your spirits lift soon!

Jana, wow dancing...I haven't done that in years!!! I wasn't surprised about Ace being in the bottom 3...I didn't think he did that well recently. I thought Kevin would be in there too though.

Thanks for the CAWFEE Shatzi! I haven't had mine yet. can do it! And when I have a time frame to do it in, I seem to get so much more done...especially when I want stuff done before DH gets home. Good luck!

I've started my day off with a bowl of Uncle Sam and a couple strawberries. I'm about to do Ultimate Bootcamp Tae Bo as soon as I get the kids to school.
I'll check back in later!

03-16-2006, 09:18 AM
I'm starting to feel more like myself now. I really exerted myself at Curves today, and I think it helped pep me up. :carrot:

Hey Jana, Schatzi and all you other Curves ladies, did you know that Mandissa on American Idol is the singer on most of the tapes at Curves? At our Curves, we have our own "fan club" for her! :)

03-16-2006, 09:30 AM
Good morning and that coffee is just in time, Schatzi.

Freaky, how annoying to have a fickle PC! It's good that you can get in to read though. Maybe the Easer Bunny will bring you a new one.

Cottage, I hope Curves gets those endorphins going and you perk up.

Jana, I am really enjoying your crocus avatar. Dancing sounds like fun and worth being tired. I had a good chuckle over "Wheels of Death". :)

Amelie, I was home too late to see Idol last night. I must gon online and find out who else got dropped besides Ace. Kewpie Doll Kevin, maybe? Silly kid!

Hoosier, I think we are in the same space. I am going to set my timer this morning and do housework stuff until it pings. Unfortunately I don't have anyone else to notice what I do. The Girls really don't give a damn!

You know, reading through the posts and my journal from yesterday and today, I hear my Mother's voice saying, "Have you ever considered just pulling yourself together and getting on with it?" Wise woman! I've been a real slug since the weekend, not exercising, not eating properly and sitting on my butt too much messing around online. So TODAY IS THE DAY I get my :censored: together and make sure I can lift it! :lol:

I see Cottage and Muffin are in and all energized from exercise. What good role models!

I shall go and do likewise! :tread: here I come!

03-16-2006, 09:31 AM
Morning everyone.....I'm getting ready to go to Curves in a minute. I was up about a hour ago, but I had to put together something for my boss & I just finished it.
So I spoke with my dad yesterday.....little sister causing drama (once again) I was worked up over nothing. Dad is giving sister $1500 for her wedding (because she asked for $4000!!!) and he said he would give me some too, once I set a date. He also said he was going to drive the gf & HER 17 yr old daughter out west for a competition for a horse show. He's driving because she's borrowing someone's truck & it's a stick. Plus I doubt anything will go on because her child will be with her. As far as selling the house, no. He wants to "switch" houses with my brother because my brother lives out that way, & his house is too small for his family, dad's house is too big for him. I'm so mad at my sister.....she's as crazy as the day is long!
I did reward my self with a hair appt yesterday....I'm all blonde once again!
See you gals later...df needs the computer!

03-16-2006, 09:34 AM
Hi everyone, how are you this morning?

Freaky - Computers are expensive, maybe you have a virus or some spyware on it.

Cottage - Good for you on working out even though you don't feel so good.

Jana - Hubby and I used to go out dancing all the time when we were dating. Now we only dance at weddings, lol.

Hoosier - Ugh, the dreaded vending machine, I'm so glad that we don't have one of those here at work!

Good morning to everyone else!

I was OP yesterday again but my house is running empty of good foods, I need to hit the grocery store and I also need to spend some time cooking several different meals so they are in the fridge. That was a big part of my success during the first 2 weeks. Now I've found myself getting slack with that. I have managed to exercise everyday this week so far. On Monday and Wednesday I did my Bar Method dvd as well as walk. I'm going to try to do the dvd 3 days a week and walk 5 days a week.

Well, I'm off to do payroll, I'll check back later!


03-16-2006, 09:37 AM
Soon - Glad to hear you worked everything out with your dad. Sounds like your sister is a real trip!

Ruth - We were posting at the same time, have a great day and I hope you get everything done you want to, including exercise!


03-16-2006, 09:48 AM
Morning ladies,

Man this has been such a long week already? I think it's just cause I've had lots of variety and been really busy, so it's just seemed to DRAAAAAAG. Man can't wait for Friday! Man I've been doing so great this week and even changed my ticker to reflect the 148 that I saw yesterday on the scale! So goal for this week is basically to stay good with my calories this weekend. So that I don't feel like I'm "starting over" again on Monday. I also added a new ticker to my signature because
I am so excited, cannot wait, so my ultimate goal has changed to Hawaii goal as I think I can lose the 13 pounds necessary in a month and a half (or I can get pretty darn close).

Hey Tyra - Congrats on the exercise. I know what you mean about cooking, I started out cooking but now I'm basically addicted to it.

Hey Soon - Sorry your family is being such a drag! I'm proud of you for getting your hair done and treating yourself!

Ruth - I think it's key to atleast fake it till you make it, even if you don't FEEL like exercising or eating healthily just making yourself do it it till it's a routine again, which will prob happen pretty quick since you already go tha mindset!

Cottage - It IS amazing how much exercise can pump you up, probably you're not feeling energetic today cause of the diet yesterday? I know I always feel crappy if eat too much, or eat something bad and am feeling it for a day or so.

Hoosier - that's the word for all of us! Like I was saying for myself on the weekends.

Morning Amelie and Schatzi!

Jana - I'm jealous! I love dancing but have 7 left feet.

Freaky - Nice to see ya even if just briefly. Computers suck!

03-16-2006, 10:07 AM
Morning Ladies!

Gotta make this a quick post this morning, the internet police are up and on the move. :devil:

Went to the gym yesterday for aerobics! Yay! Although I don't think I will be able to make it. We're under a winter storm warning right now and are supposed to get anywhere from 5-8 inches throughout the day. Ick.

Stayed OP yesterday, I haven't found this to be much of a challenge...however DB's birthday is this weekend...eek...I hope I can keep up my will power! (I may cheat a little for some cake though) ;)

Okay ladies, sorry I couldn't post to everyone today, I'll check back in later this afternoon.

Have an OP day everyone!! :carrot:


03-16-2006, 10:29 AM
I'm up a half pound this week. I think it is because I had two burgers last night (homemade and lean but still too much). I didn't even really want two. I think I need to take and portion it into patties and freeze each separately so I can only fix the number I want. Brian didn't want his last night so we ended up with extra.

I'm WFH today and have a lot to get done. So far Brian is playing just fine. His fever was still up last night so he is missing most of the Spring Break week at day care. If he's able to go tomorrow, they have a field trip to the aquarium.

With him sick this week, I have not been making it to the gym. I need to try to go today. Next week we have activities almost every night and I won't be able to make it too much. :(

03-16-2006, 10:41 AM
I'm Baaaaack!!!! My face is all flush and I'm still a tich sweaty, but man I FEEEEL GOOOOOD!

Freaky: Hmmm :chin:, have you tried to Defrag? Maybe it's time fer a tune up is all... maybe that will buy you some more time!

Cottage: Yay fer hopping back on the wagon! YOu're a great example of what Ruthie said: Pick yerself up and Git on with it!!!

Jana: :lol3: :rofl: " Wheel of Death" -- well, I'll never call those SATAN :devil: SNACK machines Vending machines AGAIN!!! I call those cawfee vending machines the "Sludge-O-Matics"

Amelie: Yes that was an excellent link!! I am a Big water drinker as a rule.. so I never sweat (ha ha) how much I drink... I can tell you this though, when I dont get enough water in for a few days... all these WRINKLES AND CRINKLES appear on my face and neck ( I believe I have or will be cursed with the Family throat waddle :yikes: ) and I just GLOW and look better when I make sure I get enough !

Hoosier: I feel yer pain doll!!!! Since I started to go to Curves, I notice a high of energy and then I get pooped :faint:.. I've been saying that I'm gonna clean this "crack house" for the last 3 days... TODAY I WILL DO IT!!! :wizard:
muffin: U GO GIRL :dancer: WORK IT WORK IT!!!

Cottage: MANDISA?? Really???? She is Awesome..luv her !!!!!

Ruthie: I hope you are on your Dreadmil :tread: but be careful of that knee DAHLINK!!!!!

Soon: Big Sister Schatzi here--see you stressed fer nothin doll...:hug: I think we all have a nutty relative that drives us CRAZY!!!! I'm so glad you treated yerself! You deserve it for all the care and love you give to your family.! :val2: Soooooo how did the interview go?

3dmomma: Please make my check out to Schatzi...fer $750.

Sarah: How FABULOUS IS THAT !!!!! I'm doin the Snoopy Happy Dance fer you!!! :dance: :jig: and :belly:...(that'll haveta Hula girl :) )

Dare: U R DOING MAHVAlOUS !!!!!!!!!!! :bravo:

I think it has been Mamahulk who always has such uplifting things to say about us Chicks.. Mama darling, you are so right! Now it's my turn to say I think ALL of you are such a wonderful shot of daily sunshine, support and inspiration! I don't think I would have joined Curves had it not been for you Curvy chicks.. and I know I would be drifting far from the beach, if it wasn't for your inspiration and encouragement! So thankyou for sharing your struggles and triumphs and your day with me and all of each other..


Now Where is my SWIFFER????? I gotta go SMITE some Dust Bunnies!!!!!!

have a great day !!

Good Morning Ladies:)

Wow!! Is it windy here, our garage can blew off the patio last night and when I retrieved it I had to put all the other loose cans next to the one that has the heavy bird seed bag in it

Sorry to say we're not celebrating St Patricks Day this year as my DH has to go back to the hospital for his MRI.We have a briscut in the freezer[corned beef to fatty]along with other festive ingredients,but we'll have them some other day.The St Patricks Day Parade is different then in N.Y. They have it on Sunday in Boston,so We will be long gone from there.Don't have to deal with the crowds.

Went to the doctors yesterday for a consultation,he told us about that they are 4 types of cancer and each has a different treatment. We are going to a near by town to have the radiation and its going to take 6 weeks ,five day a week.

So theres going to lots of driving for me,as hubby used to drive me around.I guess it good for me to get the experience.

Still hanging at 149 the scale has been a real friend,these past couple days as I wasn't eatting right.

Slept late,so I have to get on the ball,and get my chores and errands done.

Will post later Hugs:)BB

03-16-2006, 11:01 AM
Oh, I am so mad!
I just spent like 10 minutes writing a post & then it got erased!!!!
Don't have time to retype it. I'm down 2 more pounds . . . .
Stupid computers.

03-16-2006, 11:07 AM
checking to see how everyone is doing--with sick computer, sick people and natural disasters--prayers are in order for all--including me.:angel:

Need to figure out why my ticker changes are not showing up--I have lost another 2 lbs (down to 171) :flow1: but am afraid of another repeat of two weeks ago, i.e. gaining and relosing the same 2 lbs! Have a ladies lunch today, lunch and dinner out tomorrow, dinner at friends on Saturday and finally home OP on Sunday--and Monday ain't any better! I really try to select the best foods available but meals at someone else's home are a real challenge.

Wish me luck--and best wishes to all for a successful weekend.:wave:

03-16-2006, 11:29 AM
:) good morning! It's so nice to be back on the beach with you ladies! I've really missed it actually! Well, last night I made my dh and kids fajitas for dinner. I bought the old el paso kit and used chuck steak with it. I was clueless what to have for my dinner so I thought.....maybe I could just eat the meat and leave off the tortilla? So, that's what I did. I put the steak and onions on a bed of lettuce with salsa, ff sour cream, and mozzerella cheese. It was pretty good but after eating it I was wondering if the seasoning packet that went with the meat messed me up or not. I think it has corn starch and some sugar. Hopefully it wasn't enough to hurt me! Other than that I think I did good yesterday! Also, I went to the gym and got on the treadmill for a half an hour and lifted weights. Oh, I have a question....What kind of fudge bars are the best for snacking as far as calories and sugar go? I can't remember! Well, I hope everyone has a great OP day!

03-16-2006, 11:52 AM
Hey gals!

Not much posting from me this week- it seems if I don't get in for a quick one in the morning I don't get back to it!

Up 2 pounds this week- UGH!! It is TOM and I am eating like a fool idiot. I am looking forward to this weekend to re-group! I have an OP lunch planned, but need something for dinner. I am going to run by the store on the way home to cook DD and myself something tasty and healthy.

Barb Just skimmed and see that Brian is sick this week. :( What a bummer to be sick on spring break!

Okay- I have a ton of stuff to do during my planning period, just couldn't resist a quick check in and needed to confess my eating sins to the chicks!

03-16-2006, 11:54 AM
Yesterday was a good day, all OP, just busy with the family album I am making a movie of.. Needs to be done soon, and I have, and am going through soooooooooo many pics.. I had to go to a couple of my aunts homes yesterday and get pics,, I just did not realize how big my Mothers family is... it is turning out very well..
I finished my English paper as well, My topic was "Appealing the Lethal Injcection, Stall or inhumane? 8 pages long, as I am very opinionated when it comes to the judicial system and there reasoning.................................the paper is done way early.. so I am happy about that,,

Hope everyone is doing well and focused.. Take Care All

03-16-2006, 11:56 AM
I'm back also freshly showered from my sweat-fest!

Ruth, WTG on getting your workout in also! That's the spirit!

Dare, that stinks about the snow. I'm hoping we're done for the season.

Barb, I hope your son feels better soon! I can't stand when my little guy is sick.

beach bum, you guys are still in my prayers!

Demeter, congrats on the 2# loss, that's great.

Pink, good luck...I know how hard it is when you're at someone else's house. We eat at my il's every week and they normally have a nice variety and something safe for me...but last week there was a lot I had to avoid!

Hi Tar, great job on your workout and nice to meet you!

03-16-2006, 12:02 PM
Happy Thursday everyone! I love the feeling of it almost being Friday. And tomorrow is St Patty's day! YAY! I don't have a lot going on...just working in the lab as usual. Tomorrow night DH and I are going to a couple of different church events - the first one at his (Catholic) church is a Lenten dinner and Stations of the Cross, and the second, at a friend's church, is a St. Patty's celebration. Kind of an interesting contrast. But each event should be enjoyable in its own way.

No time for individual posts today, but I am thinking about all of you and hope that you're doing great!

Hey chickadoodles...;)

Well not much going on today. Just working my at home job for about 5 hours...DH Is off all day/night so we may go see a movie or something. Ate pretty well last night and even made it to the gym to get some really hard cardio in. Got all my water in as I really setting myself up for success?!?!?! Something must be wrong here. :?:

I am in a good mood today, I just secured some major gigs for my photography, and I am down another lb.

Here is to the good news keepin a commin!

freaky - the Thursday dance eh? I am out of bed, I don't know about dancing yet :) Too bad about your computer problems hun...

cottage - may have been the weather, when it gets cold I tend to lean more towards the dark side myself.

JanaM - oooooh dancing... sounds like fun. LOL about the wheel of death, we used to call it the fat machine, we said they should build in a scale platform and unless you were under a certain weight it should refuse service....would have helped me countless times! :crazy:

Schatzi - ooooh cawfee :coffee: , how did you know!

Hoosiermom - I understand about the whole house thing. I have been trying to follow but I always end up "emergency" cleaning for marathons of like 4 hours like you are planning today. COngrats on your motivation.

regina - have fun with your tae bo...strawberries sound delicious right now.

ruth - Your mother sounds like a smart lady...good luck, I can tell your motivated :)

soon - Gotta love those non food rewards, blondes have more fun right?

tyra - Keep it up girl...

sarah - are always going on trips and making me jealous girl...

nicole - I love aerobics, have some cake its only his birthday once a year right?

barb - sometimes other things in life suffer the achievements of being a great mom. Don't be afriad to put the extra cooked burger back in the can always reheat it later.

beach - haha I did not figure out you meant GARBAGE can, I thought you meant garage...Im like man that is some strong wind! :lol: I will keep you and you hubby in my thoughts.

demeter - Amen on the stupid computers...congrats on the 2 lbs girl!

pinkeagle - I love your ticker it is so cute!

tar675 - I buy the healthy bunch popsicle has sugar free low fat fudgcicles, creamcicles and popsicles.

03-16-2006, 12:47 PM
Tar675 - Noticed that you are from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, so am I! I live in Queen Anne's County and grew up in Kent County. It's a small world!


03-16-2006, 12:47 PM
Kiko - Brian has strep again. He seems to be feeling fine and so far today has not had a fever so he may be okay. He's been watching TVLand today with all the old shows - Green Acres, I Dream of Jeannie, Brady Bunch. He loves Andy Griffith and Little House on the Prairie the best. I need to get him working on his project for school. He has two weeks until it is due and while the poster is pretty much done, he needs to figure out what he will talk about for 10 minutes and then memorize it.

tar675 - I go for the No Sugar Added Popcicle Brand Fudgesicles. They are widely recommended and lower in calories than some that exceed the daily 75 calorie limit.

03-16-2006, 12:58 PM
Schatzi - I just got back from Curves too! I didn't want to go, but now that I went, I'm glad I did. I feel so much better! I missed the thruster (whew!) I did meet the owner today (she owns 4 Curves) She was a H.A.M. sandwich...hello - you're going to work! I wasn't impressed. My $29.00/month can buy her a better hair do! (Think frosted with a mullet/flock of seagulls style - yikes!) OK that was my nasty comment for the day. Schatzi the interview is tomorrow!! And they already have my replacement, so I'm not worried (I even asked for a pay raise!) Hey if I'm going to have to drive an extra 20 mins, I wanna little more green for the wallet - I'm worth it!
Gotta vaccum, fix dinner & get ready for work....chow!

03-16-2006, 04:41 PM
Stephie: I used to follow I did really well until I got the flu. I've been trying to climb back onto that wagon for a while now. Just remember... baby steps! :D

03-16-2006, 06:10 PM
Hope everyone's day isgoing good. It's quiet in the ER, thank goodness as yesterday we got our trash kicked. I went home wiped out.

Sounds like everyone is doing good.

BeachBum HUGS to you, you're on my mind.

Day 10 of P1 and I'm still on OP, everyday is a new day but so far so good.

Take care everyone.

03-16-2006, 08:01 PM
I'm going to cry. I tried on my bridesmaid dress today. I really AM a two-foot-tall upside-down pink light bulb. :cry: The dress comes to the middle of my calf and they're not going to shorten it any. I literally have 7 inches of leg sticking out from under the dress. This is the most unflattering dress I've ever put on in my life, and I have to wear it a week from Saturday. :stress: I'm tempted to go on the "vitamin and water diet" until then because I don't know what I'm going to do otherwise. I just don't have time to work out all the time, especially since I'm all over the place for this wedding.

Now, I know that this is not about me. I had my day when I got married. HOWEVER, I wanted my best friends to look as good as possible on that day, like a good friend would! I am TINY compared to the other girls who have to stand up there with me in this thing. I feel even worse for the other girls. Deep breaths. I just thought after dropping 14 lbs in the last few months that I would look better in this thing than I actually do.

I'm actually contemplating living on water, vegetables, beans, and soup starting Sunday. Tomorrow is the Day of Irish Food and Drink, and then the bridesmaid luncheon and bachelorette party are Saturday, so that's not going to happen until Sunday. I FEEL THE PRESSURE!!!!!

Anyway, that's enough being superficial and whining and stuff. Just thought I'd let you know that I'm freaking out. Hope all of you are well.


03-16-2006, 09:06 PM
Aww, Weezle (((hugs))). Don't do anything unhealthy. And don't blame yourself how it looks, blame the darn dress!!! It sounds like you have a lot of fun stuff coming up....try to enjoy!

03-16-2006, 09:48 PM
Hey y'all. I have a Thursday night at home for a change, so just thought I'd check in and see what's up.

Amelie - Thanks for the water article. I was reading the part about drinking a lot of water to lose weight and was thinking - yeah, the reason that you'd lose weight that way is all of the calories you'd burn running back and forth to the bathroom! :o LOL

Cottage - I didn't know that about Mandissa. I'll have to share that with the other ladies when I go to Curves in the morning.

Soon - Glad that things with your Dad are better than you thought. Sounds like your sister is a lot like a couple of people that I work with. I swear, they just think of ways to stir things up! Anymore when we hear a new rumor from them, we always say "Take it with a grain of salt....and a shot of tequila!" :lol:
Good luck on the interview tomorrow!!!!! :goodvibes

Sarah - Wow - Hawaii! How cool is that??? I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Dare - You've been doing so great. Here's some :dust: for DB's birthday extravaganza.

Schatzi - My dust bunnies have a couple of days reprieve. I'm blowing off the cleaning until Saturday.

Beach - Be careful on your travels to and from. Remember to take care of yourself too. ;)

Pink - I hear you on trying to work around all of the activities. I can't seem to make it through a week without cheating a little (or sometimes a lot) because it's always SOMETHING - birthday party, church dinner, team lunch at work. I haven't figured out yet how to gracefully turn down food that's being pushed my way. But, just need to keep trying. :halffull:

Stephie - Congrats on the photo gigs. I'm sure it will be great to have some extra $ coming in.

Weezle - Ooooh, the dreaded pink bridesmaid's dress. I had to wear one of those in my sister's wedding. Enjoy the time with everyone and try not to think about it. I know, easier said than done! :D

Everyone have a great evening!

03-17-2006, 12:21 AM
Sorry to hear about the dress Weezle...I still have nightmares about one I had to wear when I was 13. Big poofy skirt and sleeves, and the fabric was white with HUGE pink roses on it. Bleh. At least you all are stuck with the same dress, and I'm sure you're going to have a great time with everyone!
