Now that's awesome news, and I love my husband for getting it for me, and not much news can top that... except... the scale says I've lost 2 pounds! Quadruple Yeah! :) Is this a good day or what?! :)
Here is a pix of me on the new "gem".
Now here is some interesting news from Easter. Remember I said I was in charge of bringing dessert to my inlaws for Easter Sunday? I decided to be "smart" on my behalf and not bring desserts that I love. So I brought Jello shaped into a cross (see pix), rice crispie treats also shaped into a cross, and chocolate pudding covered in whipped cream and chocolate&butterscotch chips. It looked pretty, but I don't like pudding or jello, so I thought this was a great idea. However, it turns out, most people don't like pudding or jello either, so my desserts were a flop! Not much was eaten (thanks Ashley for not making me feel TOO bad and at least trying it:) ) so I wound up bringing all that food home (except the rice crispy treats which u can always count on to be devoured ha ha). UGH! So now I'm freezing them to see how they turn out frozen. Maybe I'll like them better frozen. I just can't bear to throw perfectly good food away (my mom always taught me about those "less fortunate" when I was a kid), so I'm too frugal and thankful to toss it. So my "smart" plan didn't turn out so smart after all.
I am off to gymnastics class with my oldest daughter, and instead of our usual Tuesday night takeout, I made some crockpot chicken/rice/carrots, so hopefully that will be healthier than the take out fare :) See Ya!
