Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I survived the DMV. Whew! I missed three which is the maxi but I passed so I am happy! This is the first time I put my actual weight on my license. I figure when I get to goal I will renew it then but in the meantime I am okay with it. Even though I had an appt. I spent almost 2 hours there. Glad I only have to do that every few years. I think it had been like 10 years since I had done it. They just kept sending me renewals but I finally had to go in.

I had a really good workout with Grace. She was cool and didn't give me too much grief for not coming last week. In fact, she said that ususually I would have been charged for the session but she likes me. Awww... I still have one more session with her next week. We didn't talk about working together after that. I will approach the subject next week. The rest of the night I had to deal with repair on our bathroom ceiling. It has been almost a month since the flooding and I am tired of looking at it plus there is a bit of mold so I am concerned about that. They worked on it until 10:00 p.m. and will be back tonight. Grrrr....

So on to the winner of my Birthday Giveaway. The random number generator chose Deb at Deb Will be Thin as the winner! Congratulations Deb!! Please email me at katiejisonherway[at] with your address and I will send it out on Monday or Tuesday. I will be doing another giveaway before I leave on the cruise (July 23rd) so stay tuned for that!

Tomorrow would have been my parents 58th wedding anniversary. Its still hard on my mom even thought it's been 11 years since his passing. Sunday is Father's Day and it will be good for me to have the distraction of being away. My mom and dad also shared a birthday which is June 30th so June is a kind of a funky month for us except for my birthday :-) Which by the way is the first day of Summer and the longest day of the year! We will be going to P.F. Chang's for dinner on Monday night. I have never been there so decided it was a good day to try it. I hear the lettuce wraps are good. I will review the menu and the nutritional information but I do plan on having cheesecake and will plan for it accordingly lol!

I am really looking forward to the weekend. We will leave around Noon to go up there. We are only about 45 mins. away from San Francisco. Dave has a game in the morning and I am going to be helping with the Blinky's Golf Tournament until we leave. I don't golf but I help out with set-up and prize displays etc. I won't be posting over the weekend but will be working and posting on Monday. Hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...


  1. One cool thing about Texas is they don't put your weight on your driver's license...of course, all you had to do was look at my picture and see that I was not exactly svelte, lol. I kept renewing mine online and it doesn't expire until 2013...not sure if I want to brave the DPS office here to change the picture! Glad you passed. :)

    June does sound like a rough month for your family - except, of course, for Katie Day! Hope you have fun this weekend, and enjoy your birthday dinner - PF Changs sounds yummy!

    P.S. That pink blouse is so pretty - love the gradient colors!

  2. Have a great weekend. PF Chang's is good - the lettuce wraps are great, but a major sodium alert. No wonder they taste so good! I love that you're going to have dessert but plan for it accordingly. That's how we LIVE our "lifestyle" rather than endure it.

  3. They don't put the weight on your license in TN. Maybe that's because we are the 4th heaviest state in the nation? In any event, I'm glad they don't.

    Have a great weekend. It sounds like you have some nice plans.

  4. Love that about your license....way to go sweetie!

  5. My license shows me at 290 lbs. My kids keep saying to get rid of it, because it doesn't look like me. I'm keeping it as a reminder of where I've come from...

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Have a great weekend. I have never been to PF Chang's. We had one in the town I lived in I just never made it there. My mom does go on about there lettuce wraps though!

  7. First, have a great weekend!

    Second, Whoopppeeee! Wahooo! I am so excited!! This is the first giveaway I have won--and such a cool prize! :D Just tickled pink! :D

    Thank you, Katie J! And to think, I almost didn't enter because I never win these things--used to "never" now. :D

    I've thought about doing a give-away, but I was afraid no one would enter. Since this was so much fun, maybe I'll give it a go in September on my first bloggy anniversary. Woohoo! If Jesus meets us in the air this fall, it'll be about the last thing I do. :D How cool is that?!

    Hahaha. Joy arises at the thought!


  8. June does sound like a hard month for you. happy birthday to you for Monday. you are doing awesome, keep it up girlfriend have fun.

  9. I am 2 pounds away from being the weight on my license. Man my picture sure doesn't match the weight. LOL
    Thanks for following my blog.
    My parents 57th Anniversary would have been June 14th. My mom passed away 15 years ago, never gets any easier does it.

  10. I didn't even realise you were doing a give away... bah
