BYOC!!! (It is Friday after all....)

My new friend Joanna does BYOC on her blog every Friday and I have taken to doing it as well. It's fun. You can read Joanna's blog at Diary of a Mad, Fat Woman . Another blogger I just recently added to my list of faves does it as well, she goes by Drazil and you can find her at It's Just Me, Drazil & Sheniqua . You should take a moment out of your day to check both of them out....

1. Let’s do something crazy….I’m going to list the rainbow colors and you type the first FOOD item that pops into your head that symbolizes that color for you…’s mine:

Red - TomatoesOrange – Orange  (most boring answer EVER!)Yellow - PineappleGreen – Zucchini   (new recipe I read today has zucchini in it so it’s been on my mind all day!)Blue – Blue corn chips  (I am totally stealing this as this was mentioned in WW this morning, but man they sound good!)Purple – Eggplant
Brown -  Chocolate, duh. My mom says chocolate should be a vitamin and I whole-heartedly agree.Black – Black beans  (mmm, black beans and rice sounds fabulous right now)

**What is super funny about this question is we specifically discussed this at WW this morning in relation to fruits and veggies.
2. What is on your kitchen table right now?

Only thing on my kitchen table is an old-fashioned diner-type radio, salt/pepper shakers, and two candles. This table stays pretty clean. My dining room table, on the other hand, is the catch all for everything and it drives me INSANE.
3. What movie do you watch again and again and again? Not like what movie have you seen 5 times…but like what movie have you seen 30 times or more?

I love, love, love My Big Fat Greek Wedding, probably seen it at least 30 times. If I like a movie and if it comes on, I will watch it, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. Forrest Gump would be another one. Other than that, I am drawing a total blank. Ugh.
4. If Satan had a last name – what would it be?

I have a hard time with this one. My friend Joanna thinks Satan should just have one name, it doesn’t sound right to give him a last name.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.

Blogland has been good, although I had hoped to update my blog a little more than I did. I have really enjoyed reading the blogs I follow this week. I especially look forward to BYOC, it’s fun to answer random questions.

In real life, the week definitely got better as it went on. I walked an extra day this week (still one day short of my goal, but one day more than last week) and I got my water back to 64 oz. of water a day. I weighed in at WW this morning and I am down the 1.2 lbs. that I gained last week. I was so happy with that. I still say when I really stay on top of the water, it really makes a difference.

Work was exhausting as usual but it’s now Friday afternoon and I survived.

Life with my two crazy Aussie’s has been fun this week. They are just the cutest things and I love it when they are all snuggly. I can’t get enough of them.

I am doing an 8-mile training walk with my sister-in-law tomorrow morning which will be great. I am excited about it. The last one we did together was 6 miles. I am up for the extra 2 miles – BRING IT ON.

Two of my fabulous aunts are coming in from California late Tuesday. To say that I cannot wait to see them is a huge understatement. I want them to get here now. Lots of fun and togetherness planned…

If you do your own BYOC, be sure to come back and share the link here so I can go read it. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

p.s. please forgive the weird spacing on this post. for the life of me, i cannot fix it. gggrrrrr..
