Hello again ya'll! Good grief, day is almost over & I JUST NOW have had the chance to sit down to post. *sigh* I am a stay at home mommy & much as I LOVE & cherish being able to stay home with my babies, I sure as **** never realized how HARD it would be! My 6yr old is pretty good, but my 2 year old. LORD HELP ME. She DEFINATELY has the Terrible 2's along with the red headed temperment. That is NOT a fun combination. I was able to babysit my 7week old nephew fro 4 hours today. (OH! THAT"S why I have had such a hectic day! lol) He is a charmer...& so much calmer than my youngest. Naturally, his parents won't swap kids with me. bummer. (heehee)
I am joined TBL Black Team! Pretty excited about that. For some reason, being depended on by others to lose this weight is better motivation for me than needing to do it for myself. I have issues. lol
Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend & be safe!

GG - haha! Done drugs recently.....I have never even smoked pot - and I have not had any alcohol for about a month - and even that was just a sip of the boyfriends beer. I was actually concerned about my car registration - it was late and it showed up on my last background. I took care of it but was not too sure how long they take to update the information. OK - Im a nerd - Im paranoid about my late car registraion - it still an issue.

slim - refills??? not sure what espresso machine you know of that have refills...i have the Francis X5 it can use either the "pod" system or normal espresso grounds. I don't like the pods...find they filter too much coffee out (even though they are less messy). Espresso machines can be pricey...however...i will warn you..you pay for what you get...years ago i bought a cheepie mr. coffee espresso machine...it sucks!!!!! last year i broke down and had a friend who introduced me to illy coffee and the francis X5 machine she has..I LOVE IT. I actually found a person who sells factory refurbs for half the price on ebay (w/ a 6m warranty). Usually they sell for $600 or so...but i bought mine for $350. I probably pay 20$ for the illy coffee a month. But i figured how much i was paying for starbuck..going 3-5 times a week at $4 a fix...this was well worth the money.
this link is the same person i bought mine from..had great successs...they come in i think 5 different colors. I have mine in a bright yellow (use to look good in my pumpkin colored kitchen). http://cgi.ebay.com/Francis-Espresso...QQcmdZViewItem btw if they don't have the color you like...just wait a bit...it will show up. I waited for a few weeks before the yellow one showed up...although that red one is pretty sweet.

i would highly recommend it if the cash flow is available...you will be hooked. It only takes me about 4 min to make hot espresso with steamed frothy milk in the am. (btw..if you get a machine...follow the directions or you could screw up the machine). my favorite coffee to use so far is the illy macchiato dark roast espresso ground. I love it. check out www.illyusa.com. I love that place. I have to admit..i'm not snobby about much in life but 2 thinks...alcohol (never buy cheep beer) and coffee (you pay for what you get). So sorry for my ramble and slight advertisement for my favorite machine and coffee..but always want to convert my fellow non-espresso machine owners. My only problem with the machine i have is it takes a while to make more than one latte. U have to brew the espresso first than the milk. So its not the best if you will be making more than one person cappucinnos frequently..but since DH hates coffee..it works for me (:

bluey..than it shouldn't be a prob. A late registration is no problems. They do worry about people in collections or bankruptcy etc...they worry about ppl with that sort of history possibly "stealing" from the place. So you should be fine bluey.

Thanks GG!
Awesome info! I asked about the refill because when I went to AZ to visit my brother and his wife last month, they had a sweet espresso machine that took these refills that were "discs". There were discs that held various grounds and discs that held creams - plain and flavored and you push the buttons and the lid flips open and you insert the discs and it starts steamin' and doing its thing and Whhhhala - it's done! It was really good. My bro is such a jerk - I was like "I want one of these!!!!!!!" and he's all "You couldn't afford one of those babe!" LOL - I totally should look for a good one on Ebay! I figure if I can sacrifice three massages, I can get one! OK maybe four massages HA!
Oh I just checked that 2nd site you sent....NICE - picture me saying nice like BORAT....It's a Niiiiiice!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hated that move but my older nephews are always walking around saying that! lol

hi everyone!

GG that is too funny, I also have a Francis Francis x1 I love it, I don't use it as often as I used to, my favorite coffee is also Illy the make the best roast! mmmm.... My girlfriend gave me a Keurig for a house warming gift, I use that every day I love it, and I can make all different kinds of coffee, my favorite is Diedrich Coffees and I can also use my own coffee not necessarily the k-pods or you can also make tea. It is an awesome machine I highly recommend it. http://www.keurig.com/

After services we went out for lunch we had Indian food, had not have it in a long time, we really enjoy it, it was yummy! in the early afternoon I went to the yarn shop fora little while, I bought some amazing yarn silk/mohair, it is just beautiful. We came home spend time with Sean and then we went out again, we went to the casino, it was OK, not great though, dh gambled a little, I didn't want to, food was OK we ate at the buffet, desserts were very good, as you can tell I did horrible in the food department today. oh well, tomorrow will be better, I need to go to the gym some time this weekend, I must!!!
