Guess what?!

Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. I don't know what happened. It was super busy and I stayed up too late working and all of a sudden the week is almost over. Actually today is my Friday. Tonight and tomorrow I will be hanging out with two of my favorite girlfriends, Amy and Beth. There will be shopping and relaxing and probably a caboodle sighting. The last time I hung out with Amy we met Doinkey so who knows what kind of trouble we'll get in to this time.

We'll also be doing some celebrating because guess what? I MADE MY 20lb GOAL TODAY! ALLELUIA! . Since tomorrow will be full of girl time I went to my weigh in today and I did it! 20.4 lbs to be exact. I can't hardly believe it!

I must say that without the blog accountability I don't know if I would have made my goal. Thank you for all of the encouraging comments along the way, it helped more that you know! It was slightly anti-climactic at my weigh in today since I had Marlie with me and couldn't stay at the meeting. I wasn't at my regular WW meeting so I didn't get to celebrate with all the people I see each week. So, whatta ya say lets celebrate blog style with a giveaway?!

Lets refer back to my rewards board that I kind of lost sight of somewhere along the way. Remember that cool poster from etsy?



Well, leave a comment and it could be yours! I am partial to the aqua, but you can get it in a ton of other colors. Check it out. I'll announce the winner on Sunday night!

Its not on my rewards board, but I will stopping off at Nordstroms some time this week for my big reward/30th birthday present to myself. A new pair of jeans. I love jeans. Jeans that fit and don't give you muffin top and that are hemmed to the perfect length. I got the perfect pair before my high school reunion but now they are way too big so I'm off to buy a smaller pair. Did you hear that? Smaller pair! Since I did lose 20lbs. AAAHHHH! I can't believe it!

Way to go! I have to say I'm a bit envious... but seeing as I am due with my second baby just days after my 30th birthday, MAYBE I will loose 20 lbs by my 30th as well... just in a very different way! I love the Keep Calm sign... I've admired it here and on Etsy before!
