Finish The Sentence


Today I am finally doing a Finish the Sentence link up with Holly and her boo thang Jake.  I've always wanted to take part in this linkup but never pulled the trigger. Not afraid now!!

If I had one extra hour in the day...I would hide. All by myself. In a closet. And eat allllll the things.

I wish my name was...not so stripper-esqe. I am not sure what the parents were thinking, but Misty and Mindy? Really? It's almost like they were starting our career on the pole early. They should have just spelled it Miss-Tee.

I think anything chevron is...related to gasoline. For the longest time, when people referred to chevron, I thought they meant the gas station. I always called chevron patterns on clothing zig zags. Now I know what it is. I don't own any. But it sure is cute on my daughter!

My last nightmare...was horr.i.ble. I don't even like trying to remember it. I went through about a 2 week period where every night I was having nightmares. Then I realized falling asleep with Dexter on was probably not helping.

Sometimes...I put all of the clean clothes that have been sitting in my laundry basket, unfolded and wrinkled, for a week back into the wash and rewash it. And that may or may not happen 2 or 3 times before it gets put away. Who am I kidding?? That happens more than sometimes!

My last meal on earth...would be a Mexican Fiesta!! Enchiladas, tacos, burritos, nachos, chips & salsa, guac, queso, tamales. I would eat it all and I would put my middle finger up to My Fitness Pal without any guilt!! And then I would pray that that was truly my last meal because that would be hell on my stomach and bathroom!

I would much rather  ____ than _____....hang out in a small room with a gorilla than go to a circus and risk running into a clown. Don't laugh. I sweat just thinking about clowns.

Mayonnaise...is a necessary evil that smells like eggs and reminds me of the word that I hate most on this planet. Starts with an M and ends with an oist. The sound mayonnaise makes when you put the knife in the jar is dis.gus.ting.

10 years ago, I didn't think...I would be living back in Smallbany, remarried. Thank God destiny changed my path!

Selfishly...when I get Kohl's rewards, I use them before my daughter finds out that I have them. She doesn't need any more clothes anyways. She could clothe a small village from head to toe.

My favorite T.V. show right now is...Big Brother. I am obsessed. Watch the live feeds, after dark, read the blogs, twitter, etc. Aaryn is the debil.

George Zimmerman...has a special place in hell. Nuff' said.

So close I can taste it

I am 1 pound away from my mini goal mark. I've lost 29 pounds as of this morning. One more pound to go. I can't even believe it. I am in total and complete shock. I've said it before, and I will say it again. I didn't think that I could lose 2 pounds let alone 30. I also hit a non scale victory this week. Several years ago when I started climbing in pants sizes, I packed away some of my favorite jeans and capris. I gave a lot away, but kept about 10 favorites. Some size 12, 10 and 7. (I also kept a pair of size 5's but those are still packed away) I got the box out on Sunday and tried the 12's on. Too BIG!!! The size 10's fit perfectly. I am so excited about that. It's like getting new clothes without having to spend the money!

This dress is a medium!!! I haven't ever been a medium in my life. I was always a small and then went right to a large, x-large. So to be a medium now is exhilarating!! When I put that dress on I almost cried. I didn't look like a busted can of biscuits and I felt great! The hubs said I looked hot! (He's a sweet man)

Tomorrow I am going to link up with on of my favorite bloggers, Holly and do a finish the sentence link up. She is hilarious and we all know that I love to laugh. And even if no one reads my blog, these link ups are fun fun fun! 

Until tomorrow! 
P.S. I really need a signature for my blog.

If I Won the Lottery.


 I love these fun link ups!! This one is seriously something that I think about often. I mean to the point where if I can't sleep at night, I start thinking about what I would do if I won the lottery and it helps soothe me. (Yep, I'm crazy) So what would I do if I won the lottery....
 1. I would pay off all of our debt and it would feel glorious.

 2. I would go to the DMV and bribe those ladies with thousands upon thousands to give Karlee her license. Just bypass that permit and all of the testing. Ain't nobody got time fo' dat and I am exhausted driving her around all the time. (PS if you know me, or my daughter, you know why I have to bribe them, instead of just having her take the test...again.)

 3. I would hire a good lawyer, who would help get me out of jail for bribing government officials. (see number 2)

 4. I would donate a large sum to the American Cancer Society, to Autism Awareness, and to the Crohn's Colitis Foundation.

 5. I would build a new covered stadium for South Albany High School. Hate watching games in the rain and graduation should be held at the school. More room for errrrbodddddy!!!

 6. I would buy my dream car:

7. And I would buy my husband his:

8. I would pay for college for both of my kids and for my neices and nephews.

 9. I would buy my parents new cars and I would pay off their house. Make them comfy for the rest of their lives.

 10. I would hide out for a year, travelling the world with my family so people couldn't say they were my long lost cousin's brother's uncle and ask for some money.

 11. I could keep going with this list. I told you, I've thought about it often.

 I weigh in every Friday, so I am hoping for a change in the scale tomorrow. I have 10 pounds to lose by August 1st...more on that tomorrow.
