sooooo sick

Yeah so I’m super not feeling good today. I think it’s food poisoning.

On another note – My sister Katie moved to Chile yesterday. They arrived safely but all their luggage did not follow suit. They’ve been promised it will be delivered to the hotel tomorrow so that’s good. They are enjoying the sights and the bars and the Chilean people and the bars. They are in Santiago for a few days then moving to a permanent location in Vina del Mer – which means vinyard by the sea. I’m sure they will have a blast there – wine and beaches doesn’t get much better.

3 weeks and counting…

Well I’m really pretty proud of myself – I haven’t had a coke in 3 weeks!

So what’s been going on…

  • Valentine’s Day was great! Mike sent me some beautiful flowers in a really cool vase which apparently was the selling point! But they were all very pretty together. We went to dinner at Tapinazo’s which was good but we definately think its more of a warm weather place where we can sit on the patio. Then we went to Stir to celebrate Lane’s birthday.
  • Saturday night was the Stock the Bar Party – Olive Us Are Getting Together for Brad and Jennifer! It was a BLAST! Everyone had a fabulous time and we polished off way too much alcohol – who is surprised
  • Bible Study ended on Monday night which is good and not so good – Good because I never really got into this study and bad because that was really the only time I got to see all the Benton County girls… we’ll have to make time with out Beth Moore.

Pregnant Friend Tally has increased by two – Melanie and Leigh are both due in late August – nothing wrong with Virgo babies!

This weekend is Jennifer’s Bachelorette Party in Kansas City – it should be just as fun… Erin has done a great job at pulling everything together.

Ok so that’s my update… more soon!

the last one…

last coke
This was my last coke. Period!
I know what you are saying “yeah, she’s said this before” but I really do mean it this time. This is part of my plan to loose those elusive 25 pounds. I’m also giving up meat for lent – still going to eat fish/other seafood but no meat = beef, pork or chicken.

I was in a few food production plants yesterday and I was not at all encouraged to continue eating processed food. I didn’t even go in the “kill” part of the plant but it definitely turned me off of the chicken I saw coming off line.

This will include my mandatory meal on Saturday (or anytime) at 2 in the morning after a night out — Baja Chicken Chalupa and Mexican Pizza with no Meat or Red Sauce. I know many people will be sad about this – it’s a long standing tradition. So here are my apologies:

To the snarky Taco Bell drive thru meow window order taker – I will miss you most of all, especially meow the one who thinks its HI-larious to quote movies meow such as Super Trooper when talking to inebriated customers meow. I know you will miss me as well – its always fun to try to interpret no meat or red sauce through the speaker – which normally ends up being no COW and no PIZZA sauce.

To Mike – who now ever so patiently just orders for me, I know he will miss my demands for Taco Bell

To Liz – who will miss my pictures of my food being sent to her at all hours of the night, for she was there for the inception of this greasy treat. It all started with an actual Mexican pizza with no meat or red sauce made ON Chalupa bread rather than tostadas crisps.

FYI – Here’s the sugar content of coke, regular and diet…
