Happy Tuesday!!

chick
Happy Tuesday!  Another sweet day closer to spring...  only 8 days till its officially here.  the last few days here have been very springish.. you can feel the change in the air.. not to mention we turned the clocks ahead here and its lighter later.    i like that.   and only 19 days til Easter....  oh my.. so early this year! 
easter tree
I remember easter being as late as April 24th and falling on my son Tony's birthday once.. so this really is quite early.   I wish they would just park it on the calender in mid april and leave it there! lol!  I think its the only holiday that moves around on the calender.. am I right?
hello bunny
I mailed out my swappy to Deb (Garage Sale Gal) yesterday.  So I cant show pics yet.  I have one more swappy piece to do for my friend Kelly and thats it Easter Swaps this year.    I have been asked and had my arm twisted ever so gently by the fab Kim K to host a patriotic swap in june... and decided I would love to host one.. so stay tuned in a couple more months!  probably end of May I'll announce something.

So today is weight watchers weigh in day!  woohoo.. Im hoping that I'm down at least a pound.  gotta get walking and exercising.  I started doing Shaun T's hip hop abs but I wont do it if my husbands home and he seems to always be here at the time I want to do it!  soon I'll be able to ride my bike too. 
breakfast
so this is todays breakfast and lunch.. very little points.. nothing heavy..   keep your fingers crossed that I'm down.... 
lunch
Have a happy tueday girls!

I'm ALWAYS so proud of you, Vivvy, because you are such a sweet & upbeat human being & you spread happiness! But I am 'SPECIALLY proud of you for jumping back on the weight loss bandwagon. I KNOW how hard it is to make that decision and stick to it. Goodness knows, I've jumped on & off so many times over the years ...! Sigh. THIS time I've STAYED on the darned thing, and - whaddaya' know? - it WORKS when you do. Sigh. I'm such a chowderhead & you'd think I would have figured that out before, right? Anyway, I'm like you - do not want an AUDIENCE when I exercise! That's one reason I do it in the middle of the night while my housemate's in his room fast asleep. You can do hip-hop, too? ME, TOO!!! In the 90s I TAUGHT dance aerobics and hip hop, Latin, and jazz were some of the dance styles we incorporated! FUN STUFF! By the way, before I end this blog comment novel (sorry) I'm with YOU on Easter. C'mon, folks! Let's decide on a Sunday in APRIL and STICK with it! LOVE YOU, VIV!!! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

With Easter being so darn early, it's going to feel empty around the house come April, May and June with lack of holiday decor. I'm glad I twisted your arm on a patriotic swap.

Best wishes with the weigh-in. PS. Try working out with audience of a 14 and 6 year old. My teen is constantly making fun of me. Good times.

Love all of your pretties:) Way to go on the WW, hope you are down a few pounds! Have a blessed Springy kind of day, HUGS!

Melanie @ Whimsical Creations said...

Such pretties!! Happy Tuesday to you too!

Best wishes on the weigh in. I really need to get with the program and start doing it again...sigh.

Cindy said...

Very pretty Easter things. Good luck with the weigh-in!

Oh happy day to you, too sweet friend. Thank you for always stopping by and leaving me some cheer. My oldest is having his birthday on Easter this year, so maybe I'll make a bunny cake for my 28 year old......LOL. I've got you in my thoughts and prayers for your weight loss, however, if you are on high blood pressure medication I must caution you not to eat or drink anything with grapefruit in it. Grapefruit juice is very bad for those on the HBP meds, and tends to make the heart work harder than its suppose to. My MIL died from this, so please beware.

Love ya'
Meri

Your decorations are adorable...your little yellow bird is sweet ...did you make him? I made little flowers out of clay with little chicks and birds hanging out in them to...I just didn't finish them yet ...I'm keeping my stuff out all Spring reguardless that Easter is earlier.
Have a happy Tuesday, and good luck with your diet.

Hi,
So happy to hear that you are going to host a fourth of July
swap! One of my fav holidays and I love Americana decor and really anything that is red, white, and blue and of course patriotic!!
Good luck on your weight loss!

I too, wish they would leave Easter on the same Sunday each year. I never understand why it changes from year to year!
Love your sweet Easter tree and all of the amazing things you create! Trying to find a needle felting class in my area but no luck so far!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
Hugs.

OMGosh Vivian! How cute everything is! I love those little chicks in their eggs!
You will not believe I can't find your address! LOL! I should know it by heart. I actually gave the postman your package with just Vivian on it.
May I please have it again at elizabeth.andrus@yahoo.com
My husband will post your package tomorrow. Thanks Vivian! E

I will not exercise with George watching...I always feel like he's going to say I'm not doing it right. I just feel so self-concious. Keep up the good work! The crafties are adorable...will love the patriotic theme.

Sandy said...

Viv,
So much cuteness!!!! I think that a few holidays fall on different days, 4th of July, Christmas, Thanksgiving is always on aThursday but can be like Easter early or later sometime, even though it is always the same Thursday of the month....that makes no sense doesn it???? lol I have to get doen crafting and get busy decorating!!!!!

NanaDiana said...

Good luck with your WW weigh in! I really love all your sweet Easter decorations. I like it when it is later in the year, too. It is hard to feel Springy and Easterish when it is snowing! xo d

Hey Viv,
Your swap package should arrive today or tomorrow! :)
I love it when Easter is in April, my birthday month! That is when it feels like spring.
Keep up the good choices with WW! I know it's tough.
Warmly,
deb

Hope you lost weight today. If I had gone to WW today I know I would have gained a pound or two. I won't get on my scales. LOL Scared to. Will wait until next Tuesday to weigh in. I didn't go to WW today. Allergies are killing me. Stayed in bed and on the couch most of the day. Took allergy pills and feel better tonight. Headache is gone and nose isn't hurting now. :-)
XO
