I'm extremely happy to say that I've lost 5 lbs in the past 10 days. I know it's not much, but I'm thrilled. To me it's a very important starting point. I have 26 lbs to go until my first goal so please help pray me there! :)
Things have been pretty calm around here for a change...and I'm LOVING it! Brett turns the big 3-0 next month and I bought him an Xbox 360 for an early birthday present. He's never been a big gamer, but he loves to play the golfing games when we go visit Jim and Mar so I figured it would give him a little something to chill out with after work. I'm also getting pretty handy with some of the racing games, too!
We're officially working on our '67 Camaro again, too. The goal is to have it up and running by July 1. I can't wait!
Brett and I had a great time down at the beach, but it was too cold to spend much time outside. We didn't even walk down on the beach. :( The upside is that we got to spend a lot of quality time with Jim, Mar, MeMe, and Bubba! We all ate dinner at Tacky Jack's Saturday night, but Brett and I skipped out on the after dinner dancing. We both felt "off" and it turns out that we ended up with sinus infections. What are the chances of that happening?!
Here are a few of the pictures that we took. We didn't take many pictures at all. It was in the lower 60's and sunny, but there was a 30+ mph wind coming in out of the north that made it pure cold.
I think that Brett and I are both over the worst of our sinus infections and starting to feel better. I'm hoping to get outside this afternoon and play around with my camera a bit more.
I'm proud to say that I've finally gotten the hang of my Mac (I think!!) and I plan to get back on the blogging band-wagon. I've mostly spent the past couple of days loading all my software and getting my genealogy information transferred over.
Brett and I took my car to the dealership in Montgomery last Thursday and our wonderful service advisor, James, hooked us up with a loaner so we could go play tourist for the afternoon. I went on a field trip (back in 2nd or 3rd grade!) to Old Alabama Town and wanted to go back as soon as I bought my Nikon. Brett was sweet and obliged me even though it was cold and windy. :)
We had a great time and I'd love to share a few photos that we took.
I hate admitting it, but I had to file my first insurance claim...ever. A rock chipped my windshield last Friday afternoon, but luckily our insurance company has a great glass policy. I have to take it in Thursday morning to get repaired. It's the smallest "starburst" I've ever seen in a windshield. Because of its size and location (right in the center of the windshield, above my Navi) they said it should be very easy to fix.
Next weekend Brett and I will be traveling down to Fort Morgan to spend a few days with Jim, Mar, and her parents. I can't wait for some relaxing time down on the beach with a good book and my camera. I'm loving my Nikon so far. I'd really like to get a couple different lenses for it, but I'm not sure which I need to start with. I'd appreciate any advice! :)
Please pray for Compassion International's Kenya trip that kicked off today. You can catch up on them HERE.
I'm sure that this post has bounced around more than should be allowed so on that note, I'm going to wrap this up and go spend some time with my wonderful hubby. The lemon meringue pie in the kitchen has nothing to do with it. :)
A southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. We know how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. We pick our battles and fight with the heart of a pit bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Our mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma and will always be daddy's little girl.
