A new Friend and some awesome dieting advice

I was watching my favorite local morning show earlier.
And yes, I am a little biased. You would be too if you were one of their favorite guests.
No, they didn't actually TELL me this, I just know.

Anyway...while I was watching, there was this most fabulous woman on.
She is a local blogging gal that has the most hilarious blog.
Her name is Annie, and her tag line on the top of her blog is what all of us are really thinking.

Now, you have to go and see her.
I have piqued your curiosity.

You will be glad that you did.
She will make your day!
Tell her I sent you.

Your welcome.

ps-the dieting's more of a tip really.
Don't eat half the bag of kit kats and a diet coke.
Not really the best idea I have ever had.

We have a winner and a confirmation that I am a CLUTZ!

So-there is a winner posted over at the other blog.
Go and check-maybe it's you!

Yes-it has been confirmed that I am a klutz.
If you know me, then this bit of news comes as NO surprise.

Let me set the stage-Saturday night-we (all of my brothers and sister and husband and wives) just got home from a yummy new BBQ place for dinner.
(it really was delish-so if your local-you should definitely check it out)
I was walking down the stairs and I slipped.
Yep-my feet went out from under me, I went down and my lower back hit the edge of the stairs.
It was beautiful and graceful I'm sure.
Just the sound of it was awesome.

I laid on the couch and cried.
Yep-I am so tough I know.

You should all be impressed-I sucked it up and didn't go to the Dr until yesterday.
Luckily, nothing is broken, just extremely swollen.
So swollen in fact-he said the stomach cramps that I am having is from the fall.
You wish that you were me-don't cha!

So-I am sitting, laying whichever way I can situate myself without it hurting.
My dad told me I needed to go for a walk today. So, I listened.
Not too sure why I did that.
Guess it's because I am such an obedient child :)
So-I sit here-crooked, really wishing that there was such a thing as a cupcake, plain m&m's diet coke drive through.
I would have my husband stop.

I'm Having A Giveaway!

And I want you to win!

So go over to my OTHER blog and enter!

PS-Tell all your friends! :)

A cupcake kind of day

So, have you ever just wanted one of these?

Just had one of those days?
You were overwhelmed, not necessarily with anything particular, just overwhelmed.
All you could think about was frosting on a little cake and how it was sure to make me feel better.
Chocolate would have worked too, but both would have been AWESOME!
I had one of those days yesterday.
I kind of felt like that one cat picture with it's hair all sticking up all over the place.
You know the one where it looks so not amused to be having it's picture taken.
(I would go and find the pic and post it here, but I know you know which one I am talking about)
I was in a funk.
and my solution was a cupcake.
(I know, I so shouldn't associate food with making one feel better, but whatever. You know you do it too! )
The little cake of goodness was sure to get rid of the looming cloud that was around me.
The frosting was sure to make me smile.
And licking the frosting off my fingers would just make me giddy!
So, I am sure you are dying to know, did I get my cupcake?
Did it make me feel better?
Yes, I did get a cupcake.
My sweet husband stopped in centerville on his way home from work and brought me home a red velvet one with cream cheese frosting.
It was so yummy!
He brought it home, set it on my table and sat down.
I ate the cupcake, no, I devoured the cupcake, and was waiting for the feel better feeling that I was sure only a cupcake would bring.
Imagine my disappointment when it didn't come.
It wasn't until I stood up and my husband gave me a hug that I got that "cupcake" feeling.
It was what I wanted all day. Ir was what I needed.
And it didn't come from a cupcake.
(I like to think that the cupcake helped-a lot)
What I'm trying to say is, be someones cupcake today.
Call them, or better yet visit.
I am sure it wouldn't hurt if you brought cupcakes :)
(ps-there will be a giveaway on my OTHER blog later on today, it might even be tonight, I haven't made the "giveaway" yet. It's still in my head. I promise, it will get done today. So, tell your friends and check back!)
