(Me . Mr. Coco . My cute little cousin "Barely visible" and my 6'5" cousin whom I disguised in a fake mustache and sunglasses. *lol*)
The past week and a half has been a busy one. I have had my Grandma, Aunt & Uncle and two cousins down for 8 days. (They live in another province of Canada and I usually only get to see them every couple of years.) They arrived on Monday the 23 of July and just left on Tuesday afternoon.
I had no time to blog while they were down really. We did lots of shopping celebrated my Aunt and Uncles 27th wedding Anniversary and we even ALL went Garage saling on Saturday. We had a 3 car line that also included my parents. *hahah* When we all pulled up the people had a real busy garage sales..... when we were done we all walked back down the driveway at the same time. *HAH* it looked quite funny.
This is what I wore to my Uncle and Aunties Anniversary dinner. It's a bright yellow 80's sundress. It has black buttons that go all the way down the one side.
I am going to count this as a Frock on Friday dress as I am totally behind on my frocking up!!!
I made the the orange flower clip that's in my hair. I love it!! It sort of has a pom pom look to it.
This was my dinner a Cajun chicken taco salad. (One of the lowest calorie items on the menu.)
Thank God it's one of my favorites!!!
I was so proud of my Arnold Schwarzenegger Commando action figure that I purchased for $3 at a garage sale. I JUST had to get a pic with him before we continued on saling.
He even came with his machine gun and a little gun too.
My Hello Kitty phone case arrived. It's larger than my Rilakkuma and quite chunky (But the cuteness makes up for it! Plus it still fits in most of my purse pockets.)
I found this adorable little plush at Value Village for $1.99
I also found a cool Japanese robe (But it's in the wash so I will show it soon.)
I found this resin coral pendant on sale at Michael's craft store for $2.99 (Reg. $7) *SHEESH* I would have never paid that!!!
I think $2.99 is a great deal. I am going to add it to a string of shells I have, rather than on a chain. At least for the rest of summer. There is some good clearance sales going on at Michael's if you have one near you. I am waiting to get paid so I can go back and pick up a few other items I seen on a great discount price but didn't have the cash for. *Crosses fingers some will still be there*
Here is me last night on my bike ride. It's getting dark earlier we usually ride in the light... but dusk hit faster than we were expecting. *EEEP* days are getting shorter!
In my previous post I talked about how I had gained unwanted pounds and was trying to get into a routine that incorporated exercise AT LEAST 3 times a week. Well I have been doing VERY good with that. I almost feel as if something is missing if I don't get in some physical activity. So far I have lost 5 pounds. *WOOHOO WOOHOO*
It's very easy to give up on trying to lose weight when you don't see any results at all. BUT sometimes when your not losing pounds you are losing inches and today when I measured myself I saw I have lost a half inch in most places since I last took my measurements on July 6th.
"If you are planning on losing weight, make sure you weigh yourself, take your current measurements & take a before photo. That way when you are not seeing results on your scale you will have other ways of knowing what's going on with your body."
You didn't think I ride without a helmet did you???
This is my Helmet I ordered from Japan a month and a half back. I LOVE it even if I do look like a big kid. *HAHAHAHA*
Every time I pass another cyclist they have to see Hello Kitty staring back at them.
I wonder what they think....
I have more vintage purchases to show you very soon. I just need to take the pictures.
Now that company's gone the house is EERILY SILENT!! It's taking me a little bit to adapt back to normalcy.
