I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather was perfect here, a little windy, but so pretty. We had an extremely busy weekend. I had high hopes for lounging around, cleaning and meeting some friends at a crawfish boil, but those plans were squashed when Beau said "Do you want to go look for cars this weekend?" Meh, not really....
First off, I want to give you all a 30 day shred update. You know, I have watched the Biggest Loser and I LOVE it, to the point of obsession. I have always thought Jillian was awesome. She has amazing abs and her arms are incredible! Well, I guess you could say that my girl crush fizzled out completely after her stupid work out!! Not to say it wasn't awesome (believe me, it kicked my butt) but I got so angry because I was in pain. You can only squat and raise your arms above your head with 5-10 lb weights so many times Jillian! And when you say "a couple more" I'm thinking you mean a couple more, not 6 more!! I don't usually swear, but this video made me yell all sorts of bad things at my TV. And this is just level 1 people! I thought I could handle this since I normally work out 4-6 times a week. I keep repeating "no pain no gain!" I'm pretty sure that if I'm that soar and in pain while doing it I must really be working some muscles. I did a little research on this video and there are success stories everywhere! The before and after pics are pretty incredible, so I'm sticking to it. It's been 4 days so far and I'm starting to get the hang of it now! Oh and this swimsuit came in the mail so I am that much more motivated now. I have to say it fits amazingly and I will be ordering more suits from them in the future!
Next, I wanted to celebrate with you all our exciting new purchase over the weekend! Beau got a new truck!! We could not be more excited! We spent Friday night looking and haggling with sales-men and then all day Saturday (11:30-6:30) doing the same. I think car buying was definitely more painful than Jillian's workout! I have never done this before and I don't plan on doing it again anytime soon. I had no idea I had it in me to be so mean to someone I didn't even know! I guess they bring out the worst in you. I got pretty heated at times (lack of food makes me very cranky) as did Beau, but overall he was pretty calm. I'm the worrier, the one doing numbers in my head to make sure it will all work out. In the end it did! Backstory:We each had cars that were 2 doors. Mine had a backseat, his old truck didn't. Basically they were on the small side. Well, now we have a 4 door truck that seats 6 (5 comfortably:)) It was a little hard to get rid of his old truck though. His grandma had bought it for him in high school before he graduated so it definitely had some sentimental value to it. As you can see from the pics though, we were all smiles when it was all said and done!
And last, Miss Daisy got groomed on Saturday. They tried and tried to get her mats out without having to shave her, but after working on her for hours - she was there from 10:30-7 - they had to go ahead and shave her down. She has about a 1/2" of hair left on her little body. Poor doodle! I do have to say that I think she looks mighty cute. Maybe I'm just getting used it?? I'll do a before and after pic when I get some of her new cut. You have to promise you won't laugh though :)
