7 weeks, 13.5 pounds

Pretty thrilled that I've now lost 13.5 lbs in 7 weeks on Weight Watchers. My pants are finally looser. I wish I could fast forward a couple months to an even thinner me!

Did you see Heather Bailey's new Web site? It's fab! The colors are so yummy! I made a cart with everything in it that I wanted, then deleted a bunch of stuff out of it, and still didn't buy anything. Maybe on payday Friday. Please tell me you do this too. It's like dog-earing a catalog, kinda makes you feel like you actually got it.

luv, em

Charmed, I'm sure. And other stuff.

I finally finished my charm for the CE08 charm swap. I ordered the little frame charms from Joann and designed the inside in InDesign CS3. I'm pleased with the way they turned out - an improvement from my first charm swap earlier this year for Inspired (registration opens August 1!).

I came home yesterday to my paint can from the CE08 paint can swap. Thanks Margie Rowles! I can't wait to try the Glimmer Mist - I've been wanting that for months now.

Last weekend I cleaned and organized all my CDs. All 560 are in alphabetical order by artist. Everyone says, "Why don't you just download your music from itunes?"

"Because I like CDs!" I say. I still like getting the little booklet and I like to be able to pop it in my car CD player when I leave Best Buy. And I don't like that I can only burn itunes songs a maximum of 7 times. What if I want to make a mix CD for 10 of my friends? I have to buy the song again? No thanks. I'm old-skool like that. ;-) (Note the old-skool smiley.)

Happy Friday to all. Have a good one. Leave me a comment. I so love comments. luv, em

So much to share ...

First of all, weight loss is at ... *drumroll please* ... 10 pounds!!! WOO HOO! Unfortunately, I had got so chubbo I don't even notice it in my clothes yet.

Second: Last Thursday night we went to the John Mayer concert. It was fun and I got some great shots due to our KILLER seats. Check out my faves (Click on pic for larger view):

Um, yeah, that last one I'm pretty proud of. I have videos to share as well, but I'm still working on getting them up on YouTube. If you want to see the rest of the pics, shoot me an email and I'll send you the link and password.

And check out his blog for the cool thing JM did this week. And read a follow-up from Isaac's dad here.

Also, since I last posted, we took a long weekend road trip to Kansas City. We visited the City Market twice - love that place. We had a fabulous dinner at Bo Lings on the Plaza. Spent too much money at Dean and DeLuca.

Scenes from the Market:

We visited Christopher Elbow chocolates - yum.

Then we went to the Cards/Royals game on Saturday.

Um, and check out how talented my friends are:

So, that should hold you until next time, huh? Thanks for sticking through this long post. Counting down the days until Creative Escape. I can't wait! It's less than two months.

luv, em
