Hope you all had a nice weekend! Mine was pretty darn good. I did not go to Karaoke on Friday. I have been sneezing up a storm and my throat was sore too so I just stayed home and took it easy. Saturday, I went shopping with my mom for a blouse to wear to our lunch on Thursday for work. We went to The Fat Ladies Store The Avenue. Everything in the store was 40% off so the blouse and necklace were $35.00 total. Can't beat that huh? Here is a sneak peek. It needs to be pressed so I will have to dust off my iron lol! We had a nice visit and it was one of the first times that it was just us two in quite awhile.

Eating was sparse but okay. Yesterday, I ate salads for lunch and dinner and had some chili as well. I went to the grocery store and stocked up as well. One thing I decided to do was to get a Brita Pitcher. I am tired of shleping cases of water to and fro and having all those bottles stacking up. I also got the Brita Bottle. You can use any tap water and the filter is built right into the lid. In the long run, I think it will save money too because I won't be buying single bottles as much either.

Holy Shamoly! 500 followers! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine having my blog read by anyone else, let alone 500 people! Blows my mind! I am truly honored, flattered, humbled and touched to have you all along for the ride. If sharing my trials and tribulations (and successes!) helps just one person then I feel like it is worth ALL the effort. 
I have a giveaway planned to commemorate my reaching 500 followers so stay tuned for that. Until next time...


  1. I love the color of your new blouse! Also? I can't tell you how many times I've walked by The Avenue and thought that the clothes look so cute - so I think they do a great job for larger ladies.

  2. Congrats on the 500!!!!!! Yay you!!!! Have a great day.

  3. You sure are getting after, Miss Katie J!

  4. That's a pretty blouse - of course, I love the color! And we have a Britta pitcher at work - I am amazed that it makes our nasty tap water taste so good!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
