Christmas and small unintended results

Weight loss... Yes, I know it was coming. Yes, I'm happy I'm 15lbs lighter now, but my pants don't quite sit right... actually, they don't sit at all! And a few of them (3 of 4-- most!) have no real belt loops. My jeans are definitely baggy. But I feel great, so I'll suck it up (or not!) until I definitely need new pants. I totally hate shopping for clothes, but I can't help it.

Anyway, enough bragging about that.

What do YOU want for Christmas? What do you wish other people would get you, that you wont ask them for?

Similar base, but with a
Chicago Skyline crystal
All I want for Christmas? If you can keep a secret... I want socks. Black socks. Both 3/4 crew ones and knee-high ones. I've overused most of mine and they need to be replaced. I haven't found good quality ones on any sort of sale, even though I did see the dollar store carries them. I'll put it off as much as I can, but that's all I really want. Last year I wanted gloves and a scarf, but failed to either get it or buy a pair. This year, I think I can do without them. I'd also love to replace the little light stand where I have my laser-etched Chicago crystal sits. Seems all 3 of the glowing lights have died. :(

Money wise, I'm pretty much at zero! No movement since I last reported. I get paid on Friday, so I'll be able to pay some bills (woo hoo) and change my side bars. I'm not one to count my blessings before they get there... but this coming paycheck completes my EF. I'm SO ready for Friday!


  1. Way to go on the weight loss! Keep up the good work.

  2. Congrats on the weight loss! 15 lbs is a lot! If only I could be motivated to do so!!

    Congrats on reaching your EF goal next pay check. That is so awesome!!

  3. Yeah for the weight loss That is fantastic. :-)

    Let's see. . . the husband & I don't exchange gifts, so the only person who buys me something is my grandmother (she is the cutest & refuses to give it up) & she lets me pick (and wrap) my own gifs. She's hilarious. I bought myself new running pants from Old Navy.

    Since we're fantasizing here, I'd also love:
    -Low heeled black boots
    -New running shoes (this is always on the list)
    -More running socks
    -A new bra
    -A massage!
    -And, more expensive protein for m smoothies.
