Weekend recap

So I went to Canada this weekend for my husband’s friend’s wedding. It was such a good time, but it was so busy and it went by way too quickly. Trips “away” like this make me more tired than anything, but they are definitely worth it.
Since I can’t really recap everything that happened, I’ll just leave you with a few snippets of funny things that happened to me this weekend:
-I was told by a friend that I was like the sister he’s never had… this is very sweet, but too bad for his sister… yes, this kid already has one.
-I was told by a TSA agent that I was fat… well, not really, but she did say that my pants were too tight. Back story –she was doing a random screening of me and gave me the old pat down… when she went to go look at my waist, she realized that my jeans were fitted and that I wasn’t smuggling anything there. So that’s when she told me oh so nicely that my pants were too tight.
-After my weekend away I was greeted at the airport by the same person who had checked me in 2 days before. She recognized me and asked how my trip was… very strange.

Hm… I thought I had more. Oh well, until next time!

Biggest Loser

Wow, first of all, it's been a L-O-N-G time since I blogged... but, onto the actual reason I'm posting. Did anyone watch the Biggest Loser last night? I'd be interested to see what people thought.

I will say, I'm a big fan of the show. I think it's great that people become motivated to change their lives, b/c these people aren't chubby, they're actually unhealthy. BUT, there are two things that really irk me about the show. First, all these people come on and tell you how determined they are and how they don't quit, etc, etc... but if that was REALLY true... wouldn't they not be in the dire situation they are in now? If they are so motivated to change their lives, wouldn't they already have made that first step? I mean, I have to go back to the fact that these people aren't overweight, they are very, very large and very, very unhealthy. Second, why does EVERYONE have to cry?!? And a lot... I realize that this is hard and this is going to be really life changing, but can we stop with the waterworks? I think it annoys me more than anything else on the show. Oh, and why is everyone so SHOCKED when they step on the scale for the first time... did you expect to be 150? I'm so confused by that...

Also, this year... the contestants are really big. When you're making the people who are 250 lbs look small, you know there's a problem. And I should say that I am not obese, but I am also no super model... I've got weight to lose so I definitely understand the struggle... but I also don't understand how people let themselves get to be that large. There's a difference between being heavy set (and maybe that's your body type) to being 400 lbs...

Happy Labor Day

So I have a million things to do... pack, clean, laundry, etc. But what have I been doing? Watching bad tv, movies and this marathon of 16 and Pregnant (MTV). That show kind of disturbs me, yet I was still captivated to watch 2 full episodes... so sad.

Today has been such a waste of a day... but I somehow don't feel too bad about it.

Wow, I have nothing interesting...

Fashion tip of the day:

If you are a man who needs to wear a shirt and tie to work, please don’t pair it with a pair of cargo pants… and please do not use the pockets to hold your newspaper. Oh, and this goes double if you’re over the age of 30…. Just sayin’

Blogging ADD

Ha, so in the whopping TWO days that I’ve had this blog up, I have changed the name THREE times. Yes, that’s a bit of blogging ADD. And although I don’t have readers (yet *hehe*) I do feel the need to explain. I feel like the name of a blog can entice readers or turn them away. It’s like a cover of a book –although “everyone” tells you not to judge a book by its cover, we all have to admit that we do. And isn’t that contradictory advice considering that “everyone” also says, you never get a second chance at a first impression?

So, I think this new name is going to stick. Because right now this is just an eclectic collection of random thoughts, of my observations and of the mundane day-to-day that entertain me. So most of this is me just sayin’ something… Welcome!
