Post President's Day Post

It was soooo nice to have a long weekend! Makes you wish every weekend was a 3 day! Oh well, wishful thinking...

Brunch went well with my Mom and Danielle on Saturday. Whew! I am so glad to have finally done that. I even got an email from my mom saying she enjoyed meeting her and that she seemed nice. Mission accomplished. After we had brunch we went shopping for a little while and then came home and called it a day. Watched movies and hung out for the rest of the day.

Had a great Valentine's Day. Dave got me some dark pink roses and a pair of silver heart earrings with a purple stone that I picked out ;-) For the rest of the day, Dave and I were road warriors. We went to every Wal-Mart in a 50 mile radius and we went to the Flea Market. Too bad I didn't have my bodybugg on because last time I was there I got in 11,000 steps so it would have been fun to compare. Anyways, we did find what we wanted. Dave's mother had a TV that was bigger then what we had BUT it did not fit in my entertainment center. Entertainment centers are now made to accommodate flat screen TVs which we will get one eventually but in the meantime... we found one that will work for both. What a friggin project! Oy! I am SO glad to be done with that. I have looked at every furniture store in the whole bay area and I am done done done. Ughh....

Yesterday we hung out for most the day and I packed up stuff to move out of the entertainment center. I have about 30 Disney movies on VHS which I actually do watch on occasion. Well I don't have any room for them anymore so I asked one of my coworkers who has 2 daughters that are 3 and 5 if he could use them and he said they would LOVE them. I am glad they will go to a good place and be appreciated. I don't know why I am having such a hard time parting with them. Now if I could part with my Beanie Babies next...

Food has been on and off. Yesterday I ended up snacking too late on popcorn and ended up with a belly ache this morning. I know I am bloated from extra sodium so it will be an interesting weigh in tomorrow. I haven't been obsessed with the scale lately which is kinda nice. I was weighing a couple times a day there for a little while. I honestly have not gotten on the scale since last Wednesday. Weird...

Hope you all had a nice weekend and Valentine's Day. Until next time...

P.S. I did not update measurements or pics but will do it tonight. Also, I will announce the winner of my Blogiversary giveaway tomorrow.


  1. Hi Katie. Sounds like you've been quite busy over your break!

    Nice to give those videos to the children. I'm sure they'll really love them.

    Good luck for your weigh in tomorrow!

  2. Great work this weekend! I'm especially glad to hear about brunch going well. I like to smooth things out between people too.

    I bet you knocked that 11,000 steps right out of the water!

  3. Sounds like this weekend was a "whew" overall - got a bunch of stuff done!

  4. Katie 11,000 steps is like walking 5 miles! What a way to fit in exercise.

  5. Your weekend makes me tired-haha-Sounds fun though!~

  6. I'm glad that you had a good weekend! Your Valentine's Day sounds like it was lovely! I'm happy that everything is going well!!

  7. Wow that sounds like a tiresome weekend to me! That's so nice of you to give your movies to those girls, I'm sure they'll enjoy them! I love popcorn but I don't like how it makes me retain fluid either!

  8. There aren't that many Walmarts within 50 miles radius. I only know of one. But you could easily do 11k steps inside one of those stores.
    Glad you had a good weekend.

  9. What a fun and busy weekend!! I am so glad that brunch went well with your mom!!

  14. Kaatie! How did I miss you?! I just looked over my followers pictures, and I thought, "Wait, who is that?" I had never seen your picture before. I had to check you out and I'm so glad I did!

    I gave your blog a quick scan--it's 3 a.m. here and I must get to bed--and see I've been missing a good thing. I stop back in as soon as I have time to spend.

    congratulations on your blogversary! And on the wonderful weight loss. Catch you later,

    Funnily enough, I was thinking about air-popped popcorn earlier... Not sure if that's a good thing to have (in moderation, without salt!) or not!
