Woo Hoo!

I've lost 10.6! Today was weight watchers weigh in day and I lost 2.4 more lbs. I am officially half way to my goal of losing 20 lbs! 10 lbs, you know what that means? Another reward from my rewards board.

So remember the big three over in the corner?

I have been wanting a big #3 to hang up in our house since that is how many of us there are in this little family. Eventually I want to get a #1, #2, and then #4 and up as we grow, but for now its 3.

I cheated a little bit on this reward and got it early. I couldn't help it! Lets just say I was planning to be successful. Thats a good thing right? When I saw this baby on ebay for $10 I had to snag it. Its from an old sign and its the perfect size and made of nice heavy metal. I hung it up in our living room over some family photos. Awwweeee. I like it.

I cannot tell you how glad I am it is Friday. This has been a totally nuts week for me. Late nights, botched projects, just crazyness. Have I ever said how helpful my family and friends are? With Shane at work during the day and at school at night I could not make it without help. I am not good at asking for help. I hate to actually, but in the last three days my mom, Shane's mom, our friend Micah, and Beth have all watched Marlie for me so that I can get work done and not lose my mind. I have been to my local photo lab 5 times in the last 3 days. 4 times for their mistake and once for my own and I have to go back tomorrow!

It is just not a place where I can take Marlie and that makes things really hard. I took her for the first trip this week and it resulted in her squirming on the floor and screaming as I tried to pry a glass frame from her hands. There were lots of stares. She does really well most places, but not there. She just goes crazy and tries to pull everything off the shelves. Perhaps she likes camera accessories as much as her mom? I don't know.

Anyways, I would not survive without help so thank you, thank you to the people that help me!

Tonight is full of more work. But tomorrow night its just me and my man and two fillet mignon. Mmm I love steak.
