My weigh in

So, I weighed in on Wednesday. I knew I had lost some weight, but I wasn't sure how much. I will be honest, I was a little disappointed. I really thought I lost more. I've lost 11.2 pounds since December 28th. So, I've lost a total of 16.2 pounds. (I lost the first 5 the week of Christmas....go figure!)

I really need to get more exercise. I just need to get motivated to do it. I joined a walking group, but they only walk on Saturdays. No problem...I'll walk. But I hate to walk alone and it has been so freaking cold outside. Does me dragging my daugther and mother in law around Opry Mills all day Sunday count as exercise?

Speaking of Opry Mills....I need to go back. I found an outfit for Miss K that I really liked at Hartstrings. My MIL did not like the outfit and was quick to tell me. So, I put it back. I loved the outfit. I'm going back this week to get it. I hope it is still there. It was 80% off. I love Hartstrings. I also stopped by Strasburg while I was there. Love that place, but it tends to be a tad bit out of my price range. Okay...WAY out of my price range. I found the cutest Christmas outfit for Miss K. I got the outfit and hair bow for $30. The outfit was originally $80 and the bow was originally $20. Love it. It's a pant outfit, but it is so cute. It totally looks like something I would put her in. And while we are on the subject of clothes...can I tell you something? I get so pissed off when someone makes a comment about how much money I must spend on Miss K's clothes. Honestly, it isnt' really of your business, but it you must know, I am a bargain shopper. I don't buy anything full price. If I can't get it on sale, I don't need it. Thus, the Christmas outfit purchased in January. I am also lucky enough to have a friend who has an "in" with a lady who owns a boutique in Texas. At the end of every season, before she sells her "excess inventory" for next to nothing, she calls my friend in to shop and gives her basically 90% off. This is where a bunch of K's dressy dresses come from. We just got a package today in the mail with two beautiful smocked dresses and an adorable capri outfit. Retails for almost $250. There is no way in the world I would pay that much for 3 outfits for a 2 1/2 year old. Okay...end of rant. Sorry about that.

I've got to get some sleep. Blog ya later!

I think 16 lbs. rocks! Go you!
I'm a bargain shopper too.
Have to be.
I've never thought you spent a lot on K's clothes but anyone who has a little girl would understand why you would want to buy a lot of clothes.
I'm already scoping out Easter dresses online. I found this awesome site with really cheap classic dresses - I'll send ya a link.
