I did not meet up with my mom last night. I waited too long to eat dinner and grazed a bit on some walnuts. I never knew how high in calories they were... Wowie! They are good for you but whew!
(This is the one I ordered)
As I mentioned yesterday, I need a new swimsuit because the other one is way too big. Yes, I am glad it is too big BUT having to shell out $100 for a new one was no fun. Same thing with friggin bras! Although... I am not happy about my boobs shrinking. Circumference is okay but not cup size. I still have not purchased any new bras. I have been looking at Just My Size and they have a few reasonably priced cute ones but I don't know how well ordering them online will work. I have never really been a fan of buying bras. When I am at goal I will be going to Victoria's Secret and buying some matching sets but until then...
Speaking of shopping - I have been doing A LOT of shopping as of late. I have fully enjoyed it don't get me wrong but my spending habits in the past have mirrored some of my old eating habits and I felt a little out of control. The only big purchases we have planned now is a new computer and to fix the dent in my car. I have an old laptop at home that is becoming outdated (not compatible with my iPhone, etc.) . I just recently resolved a lot of my outstanding debts thanks to Dave and have got caught up which is a G-R-E-A-T feeling. My only outstanding debt now is my Student Loan which I will probably be paying off until I retire - LOL!
As most of you know I have also been on a CCC (Clear Clutter Campaign) and have successfully purged a whole bunch of unneeded items. I left no stone unturned and it has taken me at least the last 5-6 months to do so. It was time well spent though because I don't feel so bogged down with *stuff* I am trying to adopt a minimalist attitude when it comes to decorating too so I don't have too many things to dust. Seems to be working. I even told Dave he can only put Katie approved items on display on our dresser, nightstands etc. :-)

Hoping to see my friend Debby over the weekend. She and Larry have been my besties for 25 years but I have not seen them much the last few months because they have been travelling. Deb came back from their latest trip sick so if she is on the mend then maybe we could get a visit in. I miss them A LOT!
Well that is surely enough rambling for today. Hope you all have a great weekend. Until next time...
