It all started with Facebook

It all started with Facebook . . . A friend's status led me to her jewelry etsy shop, which led me to thinking about jewelry, which led me to do a google search for Art Deco jewelry, which led me to do another google search for Art Deco engagement rings, which led me to this . . .

Oh, this is the most exquisite, beautiful piece of jewelry I've ever seen.
Oh, I want it! I want it sooo bad!!

So, if you (or someone you know) would like to purchase this beauty for me, I'd gladly accept. In return you'd get a dutiful, obedient wife . . . and when I say dutiful and obedient, I mean somewhat agreeable - what can I say, I'm a bit of a "spitfire" (or so I've been told).

It must be said . . .

One of my favorite pics of Ruth and Me

It must be said, I am so excited right now. I just booked a flight to see some of my favorite people in the world - Ruth, Ryan, and Co. I'll be spending two glorious weeks with them in June. The only thing that could dampen my joy is the fact that one now has to pay to check one's luggage. I thought I was getting such a great deal on my flight, but with $60 in taxes and another $30 for checked luggage, my great deal isn't so great anymore. Still . . . worth it. Totally, worth it.

Another New Calling

Well, I got another calling. In addition to being my ward's women's sports director, I'm also going to be on the stake's girl's camp committee. That means I have to go to girls camp. I haven't been since I was 13 years old. I don't even remember what goes on at girl's camp. HELP. Any suggestions?

I love LOST. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: BEST SHOW EVER!! Last night's episode was a great example of why it's so great. I thought I knew where the plot was heading and then all of a sudden . . . Wham! Out of no where, something completely different happens. And it's not something that's disappointing - it's better than anything I could have imagined. I'm super excited to see where it's going next. I'm starting to live for Wednesdays. 6 more days.

Week Two Weigh In

This week was not a good week for dieting. I had parent/teacher conferences, which meant I worked 2 very long days (13 hours each). It was also Lesli's birthday, which meant cake, cake, and more cake. Nevertheless, here's my update:

This Week's Weight Loss: 1.2 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 5 pounds
Weeks to Go: 5 weeks
Still Need to Lose: 11 pounds
