Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 185

I think my curse of bad Monday's are over. I don't think anything bad or disappointing happened this last Monday.... just some shopping with Meg. That was fun. I fit into the smallest size pants.... ever! I was buying size 8! That has always been my goal, but I have never been able to get there. I have only gotten down to a 10... which I am still comfortable at now, but hey! I can fit into an 8. That is big for me. Meg is a blast to shop with.

Speaking of the weight loss... I weighed in this week and I have lost 45 pounds. I'm trucking a long, but I still have 20 more pounds to go. Doesn't seem like that much more compared to where I have come from, but it means I will still be on this diet for another couple of months. Can't wait to be done and to have reached my goal!

I am all caught up with "Breaking Bad". I took a couple of days off of TV Shows and watched some movies... like "The Artist" which I really enjoyed actually. Now I'm on to the new TV show. My mom and sister suggested it to me a while ago when they were watching it. "Switched at Birth". I resisted for a while because it was an ABC Family show and it looked cheesy and dumb. People walk in on me watching it and they think I should be embarrassed to be seen watching, but I'm really not. I'm super into it and I think one of the big reasons why is because I have never really thought of life for deaf people. I love that aspect of the show... the deaf people vs the hearing people and how they live life together and handle it. This show is making me want to learn sign language!

Tuesday I went to the temple. When I drove there and walked in, it was all nice and sunny outside. Hour and a half later, when I came out... I saw a bunch of people standing around outside the door. I wondered why everyone was gathered and I walked outside and realized it was POURING rain. What could I do? I just shrugged and said... oh well and walked to my car at the other end of the parking lot in my dress and heels. Couldn't run because of my heels... during the walk to my car, not only was it pouring, but there was loud thunder and lightening that lit up the whole sky. It was intense and I just laughed. Good thing I planned on taking a shower when I got home anyway. I was drenched by the time I got to my car. I had to let all my stuff dry out when I got home. Just don't know how Utah weather can change on you in an hour!
Since I visited my cousin Trav, I feel a lot closer to him. Now we randomly text each other inside jokes or pictures.... same with Marcus. I get texts from him too. Makes me miss being there. I told Trav about Purple Rain (my Beta Fish) and that song even came on when we were on the boat on the lake. Anyway... he took his son to get a Beta and he text me the pictures. Dallin named him Blue Thunder. I'm sure Purple Rain and Blue Thunder would be BFF if they were not in different states. :) Also.. while I was there, Trav surprised me and bought me a cup to take home. It isn't just any cup. It is his favorite cup from Bed Bath and Beyond. A Tervis cup! They have a lifetime warranty, they stay cold and the glass doesn't sweat. So Travis had me pick one out. I went girly of course. I love it. I told him I would take it on my Southeast Asia trip.

I helped rescue a Muskrat this week.... I think that will get it's own post. It was pretty funny.

We were invited to hang out back with our old stake for a Tri-Ward Bonfire. It was nice. I met a couple of new people. I didn't meet my Eternal Companion there though... sorry. Nice to go to a well attended activity though that is not just our ward. Although it is like I just moved into a new ward because the turnover in our ward was so high. I'm hoping for lots of cool new people. Last year in the singles ward, gotta go out with a bang! :)

On Saturday, Bill and I tried making glow in the dark bubbles. I was so excited about it... and it was kind of a let down. I mean... the bottle glowed like a champ, but the bubbles... not so much. It was worth a try. We had fun trying it out.

Speaking of Bill, he just text me and asked me if I wanted to go to a wedding reception tomorrow that he will be DJ at. It's for his close friend. But I wouldn't know anyone there and he would be busy being a DJ... I think. I took this as a good sign... I think? I mean, he wants me to go to his friends wedding and hang out with him as he DJ's. Who knows.... I can't figure out guys. I would stop by except that I am going to be camping.

I always wondered how the glow in the dark bubbles would work. Thanks for putting that curiosity to rest.

You are busy as ever with fun and exciting things! Neat cup that Travis bought you, how sweet. Sorry about the glow in the dark bubbles ;)

Aw, you are shrinking and shrinking and I am getting bigger and bigger! Can't wait until this baby is out, I think I will be my fattest ever when the baby is born. Yay.

Breaking Bad is good, but depressing, right? We had to stop watching. It was way too sad.
