A quickie

necklace set for sis

This is going to be an off the cuff post today. The photo above is a necklace set I made tonight for my sister. She’s turning 40 and I’m going to Nashville tomorrow to celebrate with my other sisters. We are going to the Taste of Nashville (I hope it is good, cause it is like $55 to go -yikes- but that is where Cynthia (the b-day girl) wanted to go. Then we are going for dancing at Centennial Park afterwards. It’s some Big Band dance…my sister takes ballroom dancing lessons and recently competed, so it is totally her thing.

I have to get up earlier than I would like tomorrow…so like in rougly 7 hours. Not nothin’ new for me, but I do love to sleep in on the weekends and desperately look forward to it. The good thing, though, is that I will see my nephews and niece tomorrow and I’ve been missing them like crazy!

So, I’ve been kinda down about my weight and personal image tonight. I really, really, have to make a change. I have stayed consistently in a weigh range that I’ve been comfortable with for the past 4 or so years and now I’m past that range. I have the biggest sweet tooth on the planet and hate preparing foods. I’m going to have to start doing something…I’ve recently drank some more coffee in the morning and been eating later at night than I did before. I’ve got to cut those things out, cause it is killing me. Also, while I have gotten a brand new bike, I’m going to have to have a consistent exercise approach using it and doing other things. Perhaps I might start eating in and then walking around my building at lunch. That could be a positive thing…just as long as it’s not too scorching.

Anyway, I did want to share a new site I’ve discovered and gotten quite a few blog hits from (as shown in the little box at the bottom right of my blog)…Blog Catalog. It’s a really neat site and has a cool bloggy network. There’s also a lot of great links to my favorite things…crafts, graphics, marketing and blog ideas, and photography.

Oh, and you must check out my very impatient friend, Margot’s spankin’ new video! It’s super swell!

Until Sunday, Swellions (don’t know that I’ll have computer access tomorrow). Have a great one!
