After the Storm

The storm that came through yesterday evening brought high winds and a lot of rain, in some areas even Tornado warnings were issued. Other than the drenching rain, nothing was effected in my area. However, the apartment complex where my boyfriend lives is a different story. Downed trees on vehicles, part of a tree split in half and landed where I usually park when I am there. Luckily my vehicle was not there, this is what would've been on top of it.


There were a few ducks out and about enjoying the calm after the storm....

Thank Goodness it's over!

This past week has been crazy with birthday celebrating. Aside from my own on the 13th, I also participated in birthday parties for my two baby cousins, Ross and Lucas who turned 2 years old on the 7th and 14th. With their birthdays being celebrated, one before mine and one after, I requested that there be no cake to celebrate mine. I had plenty of cake and everything else I shouldn't have been eating without having my own.

Here are the two birthday boys

Now that the crumbs have cleared, I am trying to get back on track, I guess these little cuties were worth the extra calories! : p

Birthdays are hazardous to your health. Yesterday I spent my birthday shopping and eating, shopping and eating....  by the end of the day I had eaten way to much food and spent way to much money, and literally shopped till I dropped. I was totally exhausted and in bed by 8:30. This is something that NEVER happens, my usual bedtime is 10 or 11.
This morning the girls at work had more food to celebrate my birthday.

Now that the birthday is over and the crumbs have cleared, I am wondering if I have gained back in one day the six pounds I worked so hard to lose last week. I am hoping the scale will be nice to be next week, but I am so not looking forward to weigh in day.
