A HUGE Thank You to A.J. and BYOC!

First off, just wanted to say thank you to A.J. for sending me the pants and the Spanx!  They fit just perfect!  I am 5'3" so to get pants that aren't too long for me is AWESOME!  And I'm currently wearing a size 18 in jeans and she sent me a size 14 so I decided to try them on and THEY FIT!!!  So that's an even better present to fit into a size 14 petite.  LOVE IT!  I decided to try them on and share a picture with y'all, sorry no picture of the Spanx, haha! :)  Although now that I think about it, I should have worn them under my clothes for a better picture!  I'm so excited!  Thank you so much A.J.!!!

My dog is looking at me like I'm crazy, haha!

It's Friday and time for BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy from the fabulous Draz!  A couple of questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

Let's do another themed BYOC.....this one will be called "What's In/On Your....?"

1. What's on your desk between your monitor and keyboard?  (if it's a laptop - what's on your desk in general)

It's really cold here today, so yes I worked from my bed so I could be under the covers, haha.  But this is a picture of my desk which usually has both my work and personal laptops sitting on it.  I think I'm going to have to get a little space heater.  Now that I'm losing weight, I'm colder! 

2. What’s on your mind right at this moment?

Thinking about watching the new Top Chef Texas and then going to bed! :)

3. What’s in or on your nightstand on your side of the bed?

Water, protein drink, phone, Bible, book, headband, and my vitamins for tonight.

4. What’s on YOUR Christmas wish list (let’s assume you’d get what was on it)?

Hmmm...good question.  I really don't know.  I need to start thinking about this because all my brothers and sisters are going to start asking and I have no idea!  Probably new clothes that actually fit, but only enough to get my by because I don't plan to be this size for very long!  Of course I always love shoes, makeup, jewelry, accessories, etc.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life has been good.  I celebrated my 12th anniversary with my company on Tuesday.  How is it possible that I've worked somewhere for 12 years?!?!  Had a lot of fun times with friends and family this week and still managed to get in all of my workouts!

Blog land has been good too!  I've had several things I've wanted to blog about (which doesn't happen very often) but haven't found the time.  I've got some good ones brewing though!  

Have a good weekend!


  1. Yay!! You are so welcome. BTW, don't put them in dryer. Let them air dry then iron them on low. (if you dry them in the dryer the stretchy stuff will start to fray ). They look Ah-mahzing on you. I am just glad they will get some more use. These pants are the ONLY reason I was a little sad that I have graduated from Lane Bryant. They are so comfy and go with everything.

  2. CONGRATS on the size 14's girl!! wow that's so wonderful!!

  3. Wow ! size 14 is so awesome ! I'm 5' 1.75" so I know the whole 'yeah, something fits my short legs' cheer ! :)

  4. Can't wait to see what you come up with blog-wise this week! :)

    And 14's?! Wewt! I love that size. :D

    Btw, please re-design my rom. LOL

  5. Your desk is soo pretty!
    So happy for your new sizes!! woop woop!

  6. You look great in that outfit it!

    And if the job is great, I say STAY with it! I started my job when I was 20 and I'm still there!(I'm 47 lol...that sounds awful!)

  7. You look awesome!!! Size 14 is so exciting!!! Xo
