Thank goodness its FRIDAY!!!

Good morning friends!!

Well, finally Friday has arrived!! Woo hoo!! I am off work today until Monday so I am gonna enjoy my long weekend. I slept in til 7am today (yeah, thats a big deal here to sleep in til 7am...I usually get up between 5:30 & 6am every day) and man did it feel good!! We leave for our cruise in 2 weeks so I am going to head to the mall today to do a little shopping for it. Not like I need any new clothing, cuz I dont, but I want a few new things and maybe a little coordinating jewelry from Charming Charlie to go with it. If you are ever near a mall with a Charming Charlie store in it, make it a point to stop in. OMG!! They have the best costume jewelry and everything is $15 or less and usually includes a necklace AND matching earrings!! They have every style & color imaginable too!! It is a jewelry freaks dream come true, and I am a tried & true jewelry fanatic!! I have so much costume jewelry it isnt even funny, but I always have room for more!! lol!!

Got on the scale this morning and it still hasnt budged....waht gives??!! Gosh, I am getting so dang frustrated here!! Perhaps I need to get even more diligent. Maybe I need to go to "Rosies BFC Bootcamp"! Lol...just kidding Rosalie!! But you are very diligent in what you eat and look at your results....fantastic! I was really hoping for at least 5# off before the cruise but time is ticking and its not looking too good at the moment. I feel like I want this weight loss so badly but my body just doesnt want to cooperate with me for some reason. I feel like I have been really careful and working very hard to make good choices and I have been very true to my program. (sigh) Well, I am not giving up because if you quit you never know what was waiting for you....and I know that THIS IS MY YEAR!!!!

Here are some pictures of me that I took today wearing my capris that I wore over the summer last yr.
          I was amazed at how big they are now!! They were a perfect fit to snug at times.Yay!!!!!

So Im gonna keep it short & sweet today. To all of my friends who visit & comment on my blog, especially Kasey, Rosalie, Lindsey, Diana, Lisa (who might I add, I am missing hearing from! Hope you are doing ok after your surgery) thank you! I always look foward to hearing what you all have to say!!  I do think we should definitely figure something out where we can all get on a conference call to chat. I feel like I have known you all for years and I love our friendship!!!

Have a wonderful weekend girls!!

Love to all and 100% belief that we can do this!!


  1. Awww Sherri, your such a sweetheart. Wish we all lived closer and be able to visit or something. I don't know how you do conference calls, I only know some phones will do three way phone conversations. Maybe one of us will have to look into that sometime. I am on facebook a lot so if you ever see me online, your always welcome to chat with me. I like to think I am a good listening. :)

    Anyways in response to your Charming Charlies store...OMG yes I love that store, we just got one opened up here a little over a year ago and it wonderful. Any outfit I never need a piece of matching jewelry for, they have it. Plus I love all there handbags too!! :)

    Your going to have an awesome time on that cruise!! I am super jealous, so you much enjoy that much more for all of us. =) ((HUGS))

  2. Hi Sherri, I have not heard of that store, maybe they don't have it over here. But I will look for it.
    Ok Great idea, come over here and I will whip you a-s in shape. Just kidding. You all know I don't exercise. But I love the idea of us all getting together no matter how we can do it. We should find a way.
    I have never been on a cruise, only seen it on TV. You will have a great time. I know they will have so much food to choose from and you can make smart choices.

    Have a great day :-)

  3. Sherri, I dont think we have the jewlery store here in Oregon. I dont have much jewlery anymore...our house got broken into and they stole everything and i just have not replace to much of it. Dont feel bad about the weight loss I am right there with you. I dont know what in the world is going on but I am still gonna hang in there. I bet you are so excited to go on that cruise. I really hope that I can go someday. Take care my friend.
