Week 13 and Friday's Fancies!

Happy Friday!

First, here's my Friday's Fancies set to participate in Long Distance Loving's Friday theme. I love dreaming up outfits! I would wear this tonight to a casual bar, probably to Cap Lounge since they have half off on Belgian beer on Fridays. Well, I would not rock the shades. But I love those, so maybe. :)



Weekly Update:
Weight loss:
I lost 2.6 pounds!!!!

Total weight loss:
17.6!!!!!!

Pounds remaining to reach goal weight:
22.2...I'm almost half way! haha gosh so far to go!

Overall mood this week:
It's been a busy but good week. It was a blast going to New York City with Andrew. We met up with friends, ate yummy food from Hill Country BBQ, hot dogs at the Yankees/Tigers game, and New York bagels (and holy goodness I had Apple Cinnamon cream cheese. I need to have a moment to pause and reflect on that glorious experience).

Anyway, NYC was a great way to escape the city and school for a little bit. We took the train which felt like such a luxury. I mean, wow getting into New York on time? That NEVER happens when I take the bus. NEVER. On the train, though, I watched a movie and read a book. No Internet access. Bliss.

Back to the business that has been this week. I have one month before my three awesome projects are due...and one of which, my e-portfolio (check it out!), needs to be near completion by Tuesday (pause for freak-out moment). And graduation is looming. Oh and the whole job hunt thing. There's also that.

Oh and please fill out my survey if you haven't already! I would GREATLY appreciate if you could pass it along, too!

So yeah, it's been a good week. I've missed being busy - I'm at my best when I'm busy.

Worked out:
4 times! Even when I didn't workout I made sure to walk further than usual to at least get some exercise. The weather is finally starting to perk up, so walking across Key Bridge on Wednesday was an absolute joy...except for the 30-pound book bag strapped to my back.

Yummy finds:
Apple.Cinnamon.Cream.Cheese.
It was fun to go a little crazy this weekend in New York, but I'm incredibly proud of Andrew and I. We could have been a LOT worse! We both lost this week, too! Go us!
