It's been another eventful weekend. Some events I wish could have been avoided, others I'm over the moon about!
Friday afternoon hubby and I picked up the boys from school and headed to the mall so mommy could do some long over due clothes shopping. I've been putting off buying anything substantial for a while now, knowing I'd only be wearing it for a short time I didn't want to waste the money. The time has finally come though where with only 8 or so pounds to go I needed to bite the bullet and get some nice fitting clothes. That and I'm sure the ladies who stand behind me in Turbo Kick Box don't like to watch me adjust my pants and underwear every 60 seconds lol! Plus I've worked hard so I deserve to look cute in some new digs right?
Firs stop was Lady Footlocker. I scored two pairs of new work out pants for $25.00 saaa-weeet!!! Then, I had a coupon for my favorite store New York & Company and scored some awesome deals! The sales lady spent a lot of time with me and threw in an even better coupon!! Let me just tell you ladies NY&CO has AWESOME coupons if you sign up for their rewards card (free). They send them out all the time -- the one I used was spend $150 get $60 off!! Plus their buy one get one half off deals you can't beat it!! I saved over $100!! I purchased 3 pairs of SIZE 2 pants HOLY FREAKIN COW I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT!!!! (NY & CO runs small but its still a small triumph), a tunic and leggings and a few shirts (all size smalls WOO HOO). Then it was off to Tilly's where I got another cute little top combo (more smalls). My husband and boys were so cute helping me shop. He was going around the store picking stuff out for me. I came out of the dressing room and told him I needed a size 2 and his jaw hit the floor, hehe there I was with probably the biggest smile EVER!!!!
After the mall we used a gift card I won at book club for dinner at Outback, we hadn't been there is over a year so why not right? I got a salad, small sirloin, sweet potato, and steamed veggies. It was mmm mmm good!!!
After dinner we headed to Wal-Mart. I was in desparate need of sports bras & underwear. You seriously gotta love Wal-Mart three sports bras for $10, a three pack of underwear for $5.50, work out tank tops for $4 each, and a pair of spandex shorts for $7 - I'm cheap and I'm not afraid to admit it hehehe. Okay not cheap, Frugal!
You know I always take lots of pictures so here's a little fashion show.....

After shopping and dinner we headed home to find one of our front windows broken, for a split second we thought we were broken into. Then I figured it had to have been our dog Monster who loves to get excited when people walk by our house. He somehow managed to break the window, but stayed in the house, thankfully. At first appearance he seemed okay, I found a bit of blood around the house but couldn't see any obvious wounds on him so I cleaned it up and proceeded on with unpacking the car. A few minutes later I noticed more blood! Oh geesh!! First I feel bad for him, then I start to freak a little because we just spent most of our money at the mall!! OH NO!! I found an inch long gash between his front legs and it was pretty deep, not bleeding bad but gross. I called my sister in law's sister who is a vet and lives nearby. She was nice enough to come over, helped us clean it up and she called us in a perscription for antibiotics. Its so nice to have a vet in the family. The wound is still open but trying to heal. I need to go to the store and get a butterfly bandage to try and keep it closed. Hopefully we can avoid any major vet bills. Sarah thinks it will heal on its own though as long as we keep it clean. In the mean time poor baby has a lampshade on his head and he's not too happy! ((squeemish eyes look away!))
Saturday we had a nice family hike, this one much easier than last weekends since we had little ones with us. This ones right in town and mostly paved - a pretty good incline still.

Today (sunday) is a pretty low key day watching football and cleaning house. For those who know I have not yet heard back from the news station about doing a story on my journey but hopefully I will hear something back this week. The Canyon hike is now a little less than three weeks away, I'm getting very excited! Yesterday we scouted out the gear we need to buy and I can't wait!!! On another side note today I weighed in at 133.2 pounds!! We'll see what Friday's official weigh in brings but I'm super excited to still see the scale moving down!! I've been on track all weekend for once and feeling good about October! This coming Saturday is my 10 year HS reunion, though I don't think very many people are going it will still be fun to catch up with old friends. Today my friend told me she has P90X for me to borrow, and I am SOOOOO excited!! Friday I saw a spark members page -- he had a day 1 and day 59 P90X photo and WOOAH!!! It was the one thing I needed to see the boost me into I GOTTA DO THAT!! mode!! Time to get rrrrrrrriiipppped!!!!!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
