It's been a while

Sorry that I have been slacking in my posts. I feel like I finally have a little restriction after my first fill. Once I went back on solid foods I definitely noticed that I could feel when I was getting full. And it must be working because I am down 2 more pounds! Yaahooooo!!! Total lost since August 4th surgery (7 weeks today) is 20 pounds. Sure I wish that it would FALL OFF faster but I know that losing it slower is better for my body. I'm not complaining that's for sure! My first mini-goal is in 5 more pounds. I told myself that when I lost 25 pounds I would treat myself to a pedicure. I guess I need to be thinking what my next goal/reward should be. Any suggestions?

Another dilemma I am facing......what to do with my hair!?!?!?!? I am trying to let it grow out. When Rick left for Germany in '87 I was trying to grow it out then which I eventually did. It was down to the middle of my back but unfortunately he never got to see it. So, I thought it would be fun to grow it out and let him see it for himself. Plus I was getting tired of the short cut that I'd had since before Bekah was born, though I always got compliments on it. So......the dilemma is should I keep hi-lighting my hair or should I go more towards the natural? I'm meeting with my beautician this afternoon to see what she thinks. So, we'll see!

Rick and I had a nice, relaxing weekend last weekend. Both kids were at their "others" for the weekend so we had our first kid-less weekend in a long time. Friday night, 3 of my scrapbooking buddies came over and we scrapped until around 11PM. Rick stayed home and helped with cooking dinner for us all and a friend came over to help him fix our 100+ year old front door that hasn't worked for a couple of months. All of my friends love Rick (or course!) so it was fun having him hang out with us all.

Saturday we slept in a little then went to a local apple orchard for lunch and to browse their shop. I went to my cousin's wedding shower, Rick stayed home and worked in the yard. When I got home we went to Columbus for dinner and a movie! We ate at Johnny Carino's and the minestrone soup I had was absolutely delicious!!! Then we were off to the movies to see "Love Happens", the new Jenninfer Anniston movie. It was good though it wasn't the totally happy go lucky movie I thought it would be. There were some sad moments but lots of laughs too.

Sunday we, of course, went to church and came straight home for a cozy, Sunday afternoon nap! We don't get to do that very often. (We drive an hour one way to church so most times after church we go to mom-in-laws for lunch, cards, hanging out).

All in all a pretty relaxing, stress free weekend! We were due for that!

Thanks for checking in on my progress. I hope everyone is having a good week thus far!
