4. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

1.I really love "little things". Miniature versions of anything and everything.There is a really cool toy line in Japan that makes teeeny tiny food sets, and I collect them. My favorite is the itty bitty sushi set. They don't do anything, just sit there and look cute. Love em.

2. My husband and I have been together over two years, and we've never been to a movie theater together. We've gone to the drive-in twice, but have never gotten around to going to a movie at an actual theater. Weird, I know. We hope to pass that milestone on our honeymoon next week.

3. I am half Jamaican, but I don't smoke weed, or listen to reggae. Yeah, for some reason, most people can't believe that.

4.When I was 6, I lost 4 teeth over the course of two days while on a Cruise ship that passed through the Bermuda Triangle. What they say is true.

5. I became randomly allergic to cats and dogs in the 5th grade. I always had dogs growing up, and my friends all had pets as well, but for some reason, one day I was deathly allergic, and have been ever since. It sucks, cause I was a huge dog lover, and now I can't have them. I've always hated cats and thought they were evil. The biggest irony? I married one of the biggest animal lovers ever, and he wants to open a Grooming Salon one day.

6. I love my GP girlfriends SO much. Like, seriously, some of them are way cooler than anyone I know IRL. I wish we all lived closer together, cause I know we would all tear up the town!

7. I had a really hard time coming up with 7 facts about me that aren't totally lame. Really hard. Like took me 40 minutes hard. That is all.

I tag.....Lady? Spink? Have you guys been tagged? I suck at this game.

Creepos I really don't want to have to do this, but I think I may make my blog private. I'm starting to get really creeped out by the amount of people who read, follow, or comment on my blog when I have NO IDEA WHO THEY ARE AT ALL. EVER. It's really weird. I created my blog so that my buddies on GP could read up when I'm not around for a while, and to keep up with their lives. Not so creeps that I don't even talk to can come be creepy. Yes, I know, I linked it in my siggy. I know tons of strangers are probably reading it, if nothing but due to the easy access of it. I'm ok with that. I just don't want to see the evidence of creepos reading it. I realize I can't really avoid this, so pretty soon, I think I will just go ahead and make the thing private. Don't worry, those of you who actually know me, I will invite you to continue to be readers. Creepos-enjoy the creeping while you can.

So, As some of you know, DH and I never made it to our honeymoon. We never really got to plan one at all really. We had originally scheduled it for October, when my week's vacation fell before I switched jobs. It turned out I had to use that week to train at my new job, so there wouldn't be a huge gap in my paychecks, and I wouldn't have to wait 3 weeks to start.

Well, we are making up for that now! We have decided to take a short belated honeymoon getaway for New Year's! DH's bday is New Year's eve, and that afternoon we will check in at a Bed and Breakfast about an hour away in the outskirts of Butler County. The place we found is very cute and secluded by woods and farm land. I was able to get us a deal when I asked about specials, and we are getting one night free! It's in the vicinity of a few spas, so we'll be getting a massage, catching a movie, and going to a nice dinner. Our room also has a hot tub, and I can't wait to soak and relax. I'm SO excited! Here is a pic of the dress I am buying for our big New Year's dinner.

Feel the burn

So, as many of you know, I am trying to lose weight for general purpose, as well as for TTC. Well I was super proud of myself yesterday, cause I got up at 6:45 am, and was at the gym by 7:30! I was there before my fanatic coworker, lol. I walked on the treadmill for an hour, and really pushed myself. It felt great. I hope to go in the morning Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and then go to my other gym with DH in the evening on Tuesday and Thursday. I am halfway to my goal of losing 30 lbs by February! If I can do that, I'll be ready to start TTC, and hopefully by then my cycle will be back to normal. I'm still at cycle day 40something but I know my period is on its way. I started microspotting yesterday, so I think by tomorrow it should be close to full force. On the Thanksgiving front, DH and I waited too long to decide to volunteer at a soup kitchen, cause most places are already booked up. DH still has a few more calls to make today, but if we still haven't found anything, I guess we'll just end up staying home. If the weather isn't too bad, we will probably just have FIL over, and I will have to pull some kind of dinner out of my ass. DH said not to feel bad, we can probably find somewhere to volunteer for Xmas Eve if we start looking now. Who knew it was so hard to be charitable?

Yes, it's Thanksgiving already. And I am not feelin the whole family dinner deal. I'm just not in the mood for my mom's attitude or her 5 cats twice in a matter of one month. Not to mention the fact that my brother moved back home, and I'm not getting much closer to wanting anything to do with him yet. Ah, Family Dysfunction at its finest. So, what will I be doing you ask? Hubby and I have decided to spend the evening at a homeless shelter and serve dinner to the needy. I have been wanting to do that for YEARS but I always felt guilty about not coming to dinner with the family. This year? Not so much. Besides, now that I'm married, I want to create my own family traditions, and I can't think of a better one for us. Peace and Gravy Lumps.
P.S. My husband's mustache is growing back at lightning speed. Kitt would love it.
