New treasures... and Weigh In Wednesday 4/06/11

Hello Prim friends! Happy Wednesday to ya!

I tell ya... me and the 120's are at WAR!!!! I dropped into them again on Monday but lost it again on Tuesday. Not cool! And now I'm right back where I was last week. Dern!

You will notice I've set a new ideal weight... 115. 110 isn't even in my mind anymore. I would be estatic if I hit 115... so that's my new goal. :D
 So lets just weigh in...

Ideal Weight: 115

Starting Weight Jan 3, 2011: 145 Pounds

Last weeks weigh in:  130 pounds 13 ounces

Current weight:  130 pounds 8 ounces

Total lost so far:   14 pounds  8 ounces

I'll of course keep on keeping on but I think I've hit that point where it gets really hard to lose those last 10... or 15,  in my case. If the weather would cooperate I would try to walk it off... but it has NOT been cooperating at all! It's supposed to start getting nice today... I'm crossing my fingers so I can get back to walking at lunch everyday!

I am kinda bummed though that with no weight loss this week, unless some miracle happens... I will not hit that golden number before this summers vacation. :( Dern again. Oh well. I'm feeling healthier than I was in January so I have nothing to complain about! :)


Now on to the fun stuff! New treasures!

I got my Step Mom into Prim a few years back so whenever she is out shopping she looks for things for me too! Just look at these wonderful treasures she gifted me.

This great framed picture! 8 x 10. Love it!


Two adorable Primcats!



This fat cat had the ugliest lace hot glued to his neck. I ripped it off and added the checked bow instead. Much cuter!


And lastly this box. So cute with a cat, rabbit, Birds, Bird houses, Bees and skeeps! I already know where this will end up… it will be part of my summer decor in the living room.



The bottom…


And then… as luck would have it I was at my besties house, Tammy’s, on Saturday and spotted this! The three top boxes to the one my step mom gave me. I said “I need those.” And since I had just bought her the tea canister for her Pfaltzgraff Village set, you saw that on last weeks TT... she said “Take em!”. YAY!


So now I have all 4! How great is that!!!


That’s all for today… I’ll be back tomorrow with Thrifty Thursday!

Until Next time…
Carmen and the Primcats

As always your goodies are great! I can't believe your bestie had the rest of the boxes & was willing to give them to you! Great friends are awesome! Try not to worry about your weight loss - as long your feeling better that's what really matters ~ not so much the number. :) Hope you have a great day!
