My Cricut Circle blog weekly entry

The challenge this week was to use French Manor and bling or pearls. I was at a local craft store going out of business and they had tissue box covers and I thought I'd like to bling one up for my office. Without further adieu....

Thank you so much for the well wishes on Chip. He is doing much better thank goodness! Back to his onry self! LOL Also my new Imagine machine should be here tomorrow! It's in Ft. Lauderdale as I type and I soooo wanted to run down there today but alas I had to work... :o( All is good because it will be coming to me tomorrow!

Have a wonderful rest of your Monday!

Home tonight...


Unfortunately I don't have any crafts to post today but I wanted to hop on here and do a post anyhow. My oldest pup Chip ended up getting bit by something lastnight and had an allergic reaction so I had to take him to the emergency vet  around 9pm. They gave him two shots and sent us home. He did really well till around 5 or 5:30 tonight when those pesky hives started up again. I gave him some more benadryl and they seemed to have gone down so it's just a wait and see thing now. Hopefully they will not return!

I'm going to try to do both of the challenges on the Cricut Circle blog that were posted yesterday so I should have a couple more things to post this week. One thing of note is that I had to ship my beloved Imagine back to Provo Craft(PC) on Thursday because the update killed it. :o(  Good news is that PC shipped the new one out on Friday so it should be here on Tues!!! Yippee!!! I will be back in action with that bad boy soon!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

Wow it's been a while!

First I'll have to apologize for taking so long to post again. I need to make more of an effort to get on here more! I have done a couple of projects. One that I need to post first is the Halloween card type of thing I made for my Circle Pal.

I used the 12x12 Tim Coffey Halloween stack from K&Company and various stickers from Jolees. Surprisingly I didn't use any cricut cuts!

This is the front of the album

The first quadrant with space for extra photos and a journaling card 

Here there is the same, a place for a photo and then extra as well

In this picture you can start to see the rest of it unfolding behind this quadrant (also I think this one was my favorite one hehehe!)

The final page.

This is the view from the top. See how it opens up to make quadrants...

Here is a picture of me with my new Cricut Imagine!! Can you tell I'm in love?

Even the boys were excited!!

A few of the cards I've made so far. 

Thanks for looking. I'm going to attempt the update on my Imagine tonight and hope all goes well then I will be back in action! Have a great night! BTW I'm down another 3lbs! Yipee!!!

Happy Saturday!

Good Morning everyone!

I hope today finds you just as happy and healthy as I am. I wanted to post a pic of a Thank you card that I make recently. I actually made two of them with the same theme but different colors, unfortunately I only took pictures of one of them. This is from the Create-A-Critter cart...

I added some stickles to the middle of the flowers and the center of the bows to give it some shine since it just needed a little extra touch!

The inside is lined with white paper and I cut the words "Thank Ewe" in pink. I hope you like! I think I'm off to make more cards today. There are quite a few birthdays in Sept!

Yay! I'm down 2.6 lbs today!! Love it and feel so much better now that I saw that. Lol just have to stay good this weekend. I can do it though I can be strong and will! Fish tacos do sound really good today hahaha

Take care all and enjoy the weekend everyone!

Finally some crafty stuff

Ok so I figured out to load pics I have to do it from my home computer lol So here's a few cards i've done. None of them are really that new and some of you have seen them already but the newest ones I've done are on my phone and I have to get them off of it before I can post. Ü

These were some of the Valentine's day cards I made this year.

This is a card I made for my BFF Dawn.

And this is the card I made for my honey for Valentine's day because he likes pirates. LOL the inside says "Ye stole me heart valentine!"

That's all for now but I wanted to get some crafty stuff on here for you since I've been all about the working out part lately. Have a great day everyone!

BTW DIRT was killer lastnight. I totally didn't go at 6am this morning because I was really sore LOL I also didn't sleep very well - I was hot then cold then hot then well you get the point LOL Lots of water today!

Not quite the good news I hoped for...

Hi everyone. Sorry it's been so long. I did fall off of the healthy eating plan a bit lately and am just mad at myself now. It could be worse I suppose-I'm only up 1 lb from last Monday but it does sting. I did make a recommitment yesterday though and did great with eating and my workout. I think that is why I took the weigh in this morning kinda hard. Not sure why I stepped on the scale because I said I wasn't going to for 2wks but oh well I did. Time to keep my chin up and move on.

On a lighter note I did get two cards done recently. Now to figure out how to add pics to this thing lol

Have a great day!

Just a quick post

Goodmorning! Feels more like afternoon since I woke up at 4:50am to eat before morning DIRT. I'm back on track with my eating today yippee! I had two rice cakes with peanut butter on them first thing this am to keep it light but give me some protein. Around 9ish I had an egg white omelet with a little cheddar and tomato, onion and green pepper. I also had a small slice of cantaloupe. Pretty good so far I think.

Anyhow hope everyone else is having a great day! Go get em!

Ok I'm tired lol

Well day 2 wasn't too bad. I did have a breakdown on the food front already lol. I'm not sure what happened but man was I starving today! I ended up having 3snacks lol and then after an awesome workout at DIRT I stopped at Boston market for dinner because I didn't get the slow cooker going today! Grrr. Not to worry though tomorrow will be better although I had hoped my off trickiness wouldn't happen so soon.

DIRT tomorrow at 6am! I can't wait teven though I feel like i've been hit with a ton of bricks. When Melissa first told me about DIRT and I was just getting into it I remember feeling like this so I just have to push past it and all will be good. Really wish the mole hadn't ruined my first run with DIRT but nothing I can do about that and it was important too. For anyone reading that doesn't know, I had a precancerous mole on my left ankle right where your foot pivots. Knocked me down for an entire month. Wasn't Fu but luckily it's over.

Ok time for me to hit the sack, I have a very early morning tomorrow and I really need rest(not sure that's gonna be a problem lol) later y'all!

Wow what a great first day!

DIRT was fantastic as always. Sorry I forgot to take pic of the board but I can tell you what we did.

20 plank rows
20 overhead squats
20 push press
Lunges (can't remember how far lol)

All that times 4!! Hardcore baby! I did have dinner after I got home and it was pretty good. The house smells great too! The acorns really turned to mush and they tasted like the sweet potatoes so it kinda blended in. The sauce that everything cooked in had a wonderfully sweet but not too sweet effect on the meat- which was so tender! Overall I liked it and so did the guys. I think I'll make it again.

Overall I'd say today was a great first day and I can't wait to see how sore I am tomorrow! LOL goodnight y'all sweet dreams and see you tomorrow!

Xoxox Kim


Just had to post real quick about how yummy my house smells from dinner in the crockpot! Pork roast with veggie (sweet potatoes and acorn squash) yummy!

Day 1

Well here we are. I took the plunge and got on the scale this morning. 151.8 is the number to beat! Kind of disappointing knowing I was at 140 not but about a month ago but hey that's why I'm doing this right? So I'm not discouraged just encouraged to get this thing going.

I had a banana and a small slice of cantaloupe with half a packet of oatmeal for my breakfast this morning along with a cup of one of my fav oolong teas. I think I'm on the right track so far.

I'm feeling great and can't wait for DIRT tonight! Hopefully the rain won't interfere but I've been told DIRT goes on so long as there's no lightening. Should be fun!

Love to you all have a great and healthy day!

Well that was a fun event! $135.50 later with a grand total savings of $0.92! Wow I feel like I need to start clipping coupons again for those prices. Funny thing is that I'm not sure I've seen coupons for much of the stuff I bought lol.

I believe I have an 11 hr workday tomorrow and then DIRT tomorrow at 6:30 in Boca Raton. I'm so thankful that we have a crockpot though it's going to be extremely helpful to me!

Alrighty off to get ready for bed - gonna need to get to bed early for a 6am start! Goodnight everyone!

The day before day 1

If today is the day before day 1 then I guess it would be day 0.

I am finally going to take my health seriously and get back in shape. Course I've not really been in shape before so I guess I can't get back in shape I'll just get in shape lol. Anyhow this blog is kind of like a personal diary that isn't so personal since I'll be sharing my information even if I am embarrased about what I ate or did or didn't do that wasn't so healthy.

I'm ready for the rollercoaster and hope that I'll have the support of my family and friends. So I am going to go get my grocery list together now and shop for my health!

This week we are going to try crockpot recipes that focus on low salt and low fat since alot of salt and fat are not good for you and Chris' doctor told him he needed to consume let sodium too. Wish me luck!
